Today 13th May’2022 is the seventy-sixth birthday of Shri Bishwanath Chatterjee compiler of Hindi Film Geet Kosh Vol-V (1971-1980). Those who have the copy of this Geet Kosh would have read about his brief introduction on the cover page no.2 of this Geet Kosh.
He has also been a co-compiler with Shri Hamraz ji for HGK Vol-I to Vol-IV etc. and a co-compiler with Shri Hamraz ji for the ‘List of Hindi Films (Talkie) – 1931-1987.

He has also been a co-author/co-editor with Vishwas Nerurkar for the books on Khayyam Saab, Kishore Kumar, Vasant Desai and Sudhir Phadke.

Here is a brief about him as mentioned in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) by Devi Shankar Kanojiya and other details which Shri Chatterjee shared with me. (Devi Shankar Kanojiya a family friend is younger to Bishwanath ji by five years and settled at Kanpur now. He was earlier working in Telecom department of Government of India.).

Bishwanath Chatterjee was born on 13th May’1946 at Nagpur. He is born and brought up at Nagpur only. After his studies he joined the Department of Audit & Accounts (Postal). (This department was later bifurcated in two i.e., Accounts and Audit being separate departments.)
His first posting was at Jaipur (for Jaipur circle) where he stayed for one year i.e. 1970-1971. His next posting was at Bhopal where he stayed till 14.05.1980 and was transferred to Nagpur w.e.f.15.05.1980.
He retired in May’2006 as Director of Accounts (Postal) and now settled in Nagpur. He has a daughter who is happily married and stays abroad with her family. She has a son.

It so happened that around 1966 Bishwanath ji got interested in Hindi Film Music, or rather the HFM attracted him so much that after two years i.e., around 1968 a thought to compile the details of all songs till date, then stems in his mind.
However, in absence of sufficient and required resources he had to suppress the idea temporarily but a strong urge to have such a compilation has already taken deep roots in his mind.
In ‘1975’ he got to know about Harmandir Singh Hamraaz ji through the weekly ‘Screen’ and came into contact with him. He came to know that Hamraz ji was also working on a similar project and in fact almost 50% work of compiling such information has been completed by Hamraz ji till then. So he decided to support full heartedly to Hamraaz ji. And he has been instrumental in preparing the ‘manuscript’ for the first four volumes of ‘Geet Kosh’ and after that he independently compiled the ‘Geet Kosh – Vol-V’.

He also accompanied Shri Hamraaz ji in extensive travels to places like Bombay, Poona, Indore, Baroda, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, and Calcutta, for gathering information and meeting various film personalities and film connoisseurs to get accurate information as possible.

In between, in the year of 1975 he founded ‘Saurabh Radio Shrota Sangh’ at Nagpur and also published ‘Saurabh-1977’ (as a co-editor). But due to economic constraints he had to discontinue this publication.

Shri Chatterjee has been a ‘passionate’ student of Hindi Film Music and has keen interests in Hindustani Classical Music. He has his own library consisting of lot of books about films and Geet & Ghazals.

I got a chance to meet him once during my stay at Nagpur in 2015-2017, where our regular reader Shri Avinash Shravane was also with us. It was a ‘film screening’ program by ‘Cine Montage, Nagpur’.
I left Nagpur on 09.03.2017 and since then I am in touch with him on phone-calls. As very rightly mentioned by Shri Kanojiya ji, Bishwanath ji is very humble, generous, enthusiastic and extremely sensible person.

Yesterday evening when I called him he was very happy and enthusiastic as ever. We discussed many topics and shared our thoughts too.

Once again I wish him a very happy birthday today, and a healthy and peaceful, yet’ full of music’al life ahead.

When I think about him I find the today’s song perfectly fit for this occasion as the ‘fragrance of his works and words – in the form of ‘Geet Kosh’ will be there forever –spreading the ‘spring’ of ‘nostalgia and memories’ for generations together.

‘Zindagi phoolon ki nahin
Phoolon ki tarah aa aa mehki rahe ae …’

Today’s song is from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Griha Pravesh’.

‘Griha Pravesh’ was directed by Basu Bhattacharya.

Basu Bhattacharya was also the writer and producer of this movie.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Shamila Tagore, Sarika, Master Bittoo, Sudha Chopra, Manik Dutt, Vimal Joshi, Raj Verma, Nandlal Sharma, R.S. Chopra, Satay Bannerjee, Shashi Jain, Tarun Mujherjee, Nilesh, Khoka Mukherjee, Danny, Master Bharat, and Nitin Sethi.
Dinesh Thakur, Priya Darshini, Ranjan, Devendra and Gulzar made a friendly appearance in this movie.

Script of this movie was written by Gulzar and Basu Bhattacharya.
Editing of this movie was done by Om Prakash Makkar.
Dialogues of this movie were written by Gulzar, and he also wrote the lyrics for the songs in this movie.

Yesudas, Sulakshana Pandit, Chandrani Mukherjee, Pankaj Mitra, and Bhupendra had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Kanu Roy.

Today’s song is sung by Bhupendra Singh and is a background song in the movie. It happens when the titles of this movie are rolling down.

Lyrics are by Gulzar and music is composed by Kanu Roy.

(I had noted this song more than five years back during my stay in Kenya and had earlier saved it for a special post.
Later on our dear Prakash ji had also sent the lyrics for this song with other remaining songs of this movie.).

Lata Mangeshkar – 1929-2022

A lifetime of music passed by, and then today morning, that voice of the century descended into the forever sleep, from where no one returns. The fears have been there for almost a month – the time she spent in the hospital. And there were prayers also – prayers by millions – millions who have loved and revered this voice that has been singing for the past almost seventy five years. This voice will not be heard again.

And yet, this voice will continue to ring till there is time, and there are lovers of music. Her legacy and her memories will keep alive. Thousands of songs that have been sung by her and recorded – these songs will continue to please the ears till there music lives. The voice will live forever.

नाम गुम जाएगा
चेहरा ये बादल जाएगा
मेरी आवाज़ ही पहचान है. . .

Goodbye Didi. . . it has been a terrific inning – 1929 – 2022.

================================================

Recently when I updated my list of pending songs shared earlier, I noted that the top two songs are from the movie ‘Lekin’ (1990). Both the songs were shared long back in 2012. Since these were pending since long, I thought I should try to add a write-up to them and send for posting. I like all the songs from this movie very much, and I must have listened to them innumerable times.

I was staying at Kota (Rajasthan) then when the music for this film was released. I had bought the cassette for this film on 12.01.1991. (The film was dedicated to the ‘girl child’). Music was released by HMV in September’1990. That is now almost thirty-one years back now. Hushh…!! how time flies? … 😊 to me its only like few months back. Only thing is now I didn’t get to listen these songs regularly because the cassette-recorder-player has gone out of order and cannot be repaired now. (Maybe I need to buy a new one. Otherwise, I am afraid that the cassettes will also deteriorate).

I like the songs of this movie very very much, but I did never get to watch this movie. When I checked on internet the movie was already available, so I decided to watch it, and had watched it few weeks back. Sadly, the film available seems to be a re-recorded one and not an original print. Also, this version has the songs deleted from it. And that means all songs are deleted from this version. Though videos of the songs are available separately. But their absence from the movie takes out all the joy of enjoying the movie. But nevertheless, one can enjoy this movie for the mystery it contains.

I liked this movie very much. It has all the ingredients that I love to watch – the palaces of Rajasthan, the ruins, the sand-dunes, train journey, the inside view of the special coaches of the train (in this case it the first class coach, I think), library, books, mystery wrapped in time, wandering soul (we can see that 😊 in the movie), and above all the captivating and mesmerizing music – classical as well as folk of Rajasthan – the thrill of those ‘Ragas’ -the poetry in the songs – the divine singing voice – all these takes one to a different planet. I would not like to spoil the interest of those who intend to watch this movie, so I will not write much about the movie in details.

This movie is said to be inspired from one the famous Rabindranath Tagore story ‘Kshudhit Paashaan’ (Angry Stones).
[Auth. Note: I do have this story book in my library and this I realized when I read about this movie based on this story and then I remember, yes, I think I have this book. Then I look for it in the shelves and it was there. No mystery in this 😊 my younger daughter always pushes me to read the books that I have collected and not to add newer ones unless I read the older ones all 😊.]

Coming back to the today’s movie now. ‘Lekin’ was directed by Gulzar for Dinanath Kala Mandir. Hridaynath Mangeshkar and Bal Phoole were the producers of this movie. It was presented by Lata Mangeshkar. The star cast includes Vinod Khanna, Dimple Kapadia, Amjad Khan, Alok Nath, Moon Moon Sen, Vijayendra Ghatge, Beena, Manohar Singh, Ram Mohan, Ajit Vachhani, Sunil Advani, Shabir Abbas, Masood Akhtar, Yash Sharma, GP Singh, Bashir Khan, Mohafiz Haider, S Madan, Harmeet Singh, Umesh Vyas, Mansi Upadhyay, Sapna Awasthy, Rashmi, Ahmed Siddiqui, and Baby Shabana Khan. Hema Malini made a guest appearance in this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.08.1990.

Story of this movie is written by Gulzar. Gulzar also wrote the screenplay, dialogues, and lyrics for this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Sadanand Shetty, Ravi and Aadinath Mangeshkar.

This movie had eight soundtracks as mentioned on the blurb of the cassette and the details are given below.

Coming back to the today’s song it is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and on screen lip-synced by Dimple Kapadia. This song is beautifully picturized in the ruins and deserts of Rajasthan. I am sure listening to this song will give one a lot of pleasure and will take one far away in the ‘desert’. I stayed at Kota for almost eight years, but never visited the ‘desert-triangle’. I wish I will visit them soon. Though during my stay, I visited palaces and forts at Jaipur, Udaipur, Chittorgarh, Bundi and at Kota. Whenever I visit there, I used to jokingly say my friends that in my previous birth I was a King and ruled there 😊 …

As mentioned above only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 26.10.2012 just few months more and this movie will complete a decade on the blog. Let us now listen to the today’s song.

Main ek sadi se baithhi hoon

main ek sadi se baithhi hoon
main ek sadi se baithhi hoon
is raah se koi guzra nahin
kuchh chaand ke rathh to guzre thhe
kuchh chaand ke rathh to guzre thhe
par chaand se koi utara nahin
main ek sadi se baithhi hoon
main ek sadi se baithhi hoon

din raat ke donon pahiye bhi
kuchh dhool udaa kar beet gaye
beet gaye
din raat ke donon pahiye bhi
kuchh dhool udaa kar beet gaye
main man aangan mein baithhi rahi
main man aangan mein baithhi rahi
choukhat se koi guzraa nahin
main ek sadi se baithhi hoon
main ek sadi se baithhi hoon

aakash bada boodhaa baba
sab ko kuchh baant ke jaata hai
jaata hai
aakash bada boodhaa baba
sab ko kuchh baant ke jaata hai
aankhon ko nichoda maine bahut
aankhon ko nichoda maine bahut
par koi aansoo utra nahin
main ek sadi se baithhi hoon
main ek sadi se baithhi hoon

कुछ चाँद के रथ तो गुजरे थे
कुछ चाँद के रथ तो गुजरे थे
पर चाँद से कोई उतरा नहीं

मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ
मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ

दिन रात के दोनों पहिये भी
कुछ धूल उड़ा कर बीत गए

दिन रात के दोनों पहिये भी
कुछ धूल उड़ा कर बीत गए
मैं मन आँगन में बैठी रही
मैं मन आँगन में बैठी रही
चौखट से कोई गुज़रा नहीं
मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ
मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ

आकाश बड़ा बूढ़ा बाबा
सब कुछ बाँट के जाता है
जाता है
आकाश बड़ा बूढ़ा बाबा
सब कुछ बाँट के जाता है
आँखों को निचोड़ा मैंने बहुत
आँखों को निचोड़ा मैंने बहुत
पर कोई आँसू उतरा नहीं
मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ
मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ

55th birthday of A. R. Rehman
———————————————————–

A. R. Rehman – The musician of 21st century – 1
———————————————————–

Out beyond ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field. I will meet you there. – Rumi

Some years ago, I received a Whatsapp forward featuring a sketch with Rumi’s character, in a 21st century setting. This requires careful description, so you all please be patient with me.

There he was, 13th century persian poet and philosopher, Jalaludding Rumi, turban and all, sitting on one end of a small primitive boat. A boat that fits in a New York apartment’s living room. Guess who is doing the honors of ‘Chappu chalauing’ at the other end of the boat? It was Chandler, of ‘Friends’ fame. Imagine a boat on the floor of a city living room, at one end Chandler is roving the boat and Rumi is sitting on the other end. The caption with it, also in 21st century English, read “When you are looking for a Roomie and misspell it!”

Ha Ha Ha Ha. If no one is laughing, I have only myself to blame for thinking of Rumi. “ham wahan hain jahan se ham ko bhi kuchh hamaari khabar nahi aati”

I have been exposed to some episodes of ‘Friends’, so identifying Chandler was the easy bit in the caricature. I could connect, the word “Roomie” to Rumi after some deliberation, but never having seen Rumi, or his picture or sketch, I was wondering who is the peasant in the boat. And what is a boat doing in the living room? It transpired that Rumi had arrived in his boat in response to the ad posted by Chandler for a roomie, as he misspelt it as Rumi. Since in Rumi’s time the preferred mode of transport was a boat, Persia is sure to have been full of rivers. Or canals, like Venice.

But I quite liked the idea of a boat in the living room. I did contemplate, on a real-life boat, the size of a two-three seater sofa, which was available for sale in a handicraft shop in Alleppy, Kerela. I could not figure out a way of transporting it to Mumbai, so had to drop the idea. I have a few embellished display size boats, but it is not the same. Now, after writing all this, I am thinking I should make another attempt at it.

At least a boat is doable, but imagine if someone is fond of trains, how will they get them in the living room. Trains are good for travelling, they take you from Point A to Point B, that is their usefulness. I have seen a train on the dining table with tracks and all, for movement of serving dishes, somewhere in a museum, probably. Now that is nice idea, if the kitchen is next of the dining section, a train can be made and for variety, a tunnel or two can added in the landscape. My imagination is running away with me.

I have finally arrived at the destination point, i. e. a train song. An iconic song for our generation of movie goers. A sufiana song written by Gulzar and composed by A. R. Rehman for Dil Se(1998). Singers are Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi. There is a lot of trivia available here about this song. There is this page too, which states that this song and video was at 9th position in the poll for top 10 all time songs, for which people from 55 countries voted. This poll was conducted by BBC world service.

The original composition of a solo by Sukhwinder Singh titled “Thaiyya thaiya” is also part of the movie’s song track, though it was not used in the film. The song begin with the lines “Eid aayi mera yaar nayi aaya”, but it is actually based on Bulle Shah’s “Tere ishq nachaya kar thhaiya thhaiya”. The version is mostly in Punjabi, with the same tune. So, I thought maybe that should be treated as a separate song.

These films songs are among the best of A. R. Rehman, Gulzar and Lata Mangeshkar. And they will be the best of Udit Narayan & Mahalaxmi Iyer(Aye Ajnabi), Sonu Nigam & Kavita Krishnamurthy(tu hi tu satragi re), Sukhwinder Singh and Sapna Awasthi(Chhaiyya chhaiyya).

The song becomes iconic due to its picturization of a group of dancers, with Shah Rukh Khan and Malaika Arora, dancing atop a running train. It is shot in location of Ooty. This is also the best of Farah Khan’s choreography. This is among the first few outdoorsy songs I shortlisted for posting in the blog.

Gulzar sahab is talking of ‘Jannat’ and ‘Firdaus’, which means Paradise. ‘Gulposh is invisible, kaayenaat is universe, Taaveez is talisman, ‘aayat’ is sentence/verse(scholars say ‘aayat’ in the quranic context are niether sentence nor verse, it is an entirely different unit of deliverance) of Al-Quran which are in Arabic. What Gulzar sahab may mean in this line ‘mera naghma wahi mera kalma wahi’, is that ishq as a philosophy is my song, my first and last word.

wo yaar hai jo khushboo ki tarah
jis ki zubaan urdu ki tarah

The first thought the word ‘Urdu’ invokes in the minds of Urdudaan as well as non-urdudaan, is its sweetness (Shireen) and cultured-ness(muhazzib). These two things ‘shireeni’ and ‘tehzeeb’ go hand in hand and are two sides of the same coin. This literally means, the object of ishq is anything that has flagrant aura and talks speaks and sings with a sweetness. Fragrance is a thing which is also pure, clean and invisible. Sincerity and unpretentiousness, plus a sweet way of conduct and speech is:

Meri shaam raat
Meri kaayenaat

Shaam is a time of relaxation and liesure and raat is for resting. ‘Kaayenaat’ is my ‘universe of abundance’. So there goes, if the object of my ishq is, the highest ideals of sincerity and good conduct, then it will be my contentment and happiness for which sky in the limit. Is this the salvation and moksh in this life?

Saare ishq ki chhaaon chale chhainyya chhainya
Paaon jannat chale chale chal chhainyya chhainyya

And

Jin ke sar ho ishq ki chhaaon
Paaon ke neeche jannat hogi

They both mean the same, that those who live under the shade of such an ishq, heaven/paradise is theirs.

Remembering Jalaluddin Rumi and his philosophy is eventually justified by Gulzar sahab’s this master piece. Maybe the quote is the wrong one, the correct one is this:

“There is no salvation for the soul but to fall in love. Only lovers can escape out of these two worlds.” – Rumi

I have been thinking for sometime now that there so many iconic songs composed by ARR, that a garland or a necklace of these gems can be made. So I have chosen myself to do this series. The first episode is this song, starting on the birthday of ARR. I have done a few posts of his songs in the blog earlier for songs of ‘lagan’ ‘zubieda’ ‘sapney’ etc. This is by far an ambitious series for me to undertake, as it is very difficult to fit theses gems in a particular form to complete a cohesive design of the necklace. I will play by the ear, and God willing try to complete this series in 2022.

Hullo Atuldom

Recently, last five years to be exact, November 2nd has been added to the dates for which I feel compelled to write a post. These were the posts from the last Five years

Dates Song
2 November 2016 Dil aashna hai jigar aashna hai
2 November 2017 Taak dhin dhin taak dhin dhin dhin
2 November 2018 Jaata hai tu kahaan
2 November 2019 Aashiq hoon main qaatil bhi hoon
2 November 2020 Katthai aankhon waali ek ladki

November 2nd became an important date in the calendar for Atuldom when we discovered that a very dear Atulite has his birthday on this date. He used to be a very active member of Atuldom. But has been missing from action since the last four months- his last post on the blog was on July 19, 2021. He has contributed 1407 posts to the blog (the highest by a guest poster on ASAD), enriched 137 posts by contributing lyrics for them, plus he has added Devnagari lyrics to 1414 posts. Most importantly all his posts have lyrics in both Devnagari and the Roman script. He is a treasure house of information and has connections to collectors of music and vinyl records of music from all eras and is competent in locating rare gems when requested by followers of the blog.

Of course his journey on the blog began like all other followers (correct me if I am wrong Sudhirji) landing on Atulsongaday in search of some song, liking the premise of the blog and staying glued to it forever. He went a step further when he became Atulji’s aide and shared the task of posting songs on the blog, which actually helped on days when Atulji was busy with earthly responsibilities.

Here is wishing our very own Dilldaar Dilliwala “Many More Happy returns of the day”.

For this post I propose that we have a song from the 26th October 2001 released, Santosh Sivan directed and Gauri Khan/ Juhi Chawla produced ‘Asoka’. It had a starcast headed by Kareena Kapoor, Shah Rukh Khan, Danny, Ajith Kumar (the southern star), Gerson Da Cunha (Adman, Stage & media personality), Umesh Mehra (the producer/ director of films like ‘Guru’, ‘Ashanthi’, ‘Mujrim’ etc.) along with Subhashini Ali, Hrishita Bhatt, Rahul Dev etc. The music was composed by Anu Malik; Gulzar and Anand Bakshi are credited as lyricists (must be the only time these two featured as lyricists in the same film). The vocals of Alka Yagnik, Abhijeet, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shaan, K.S. Chitra, Hema Sardesai can be heard in the songs.

Here is a melodious song from the movie which is filmed on another Dilliwala -SRK who also has his birthday today with Anu Malik the music composer also celebrating his birthday. This post which celebrates three birthdays is sung by a person whose birthday was on 30th October- Abhijeet. The female voice is of Alka Yagnik.

Wish you a very Happy Birthday Sudhirji with this song penned by Gulzar.

It can be seen from the table of 2002 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 8 songs in 2 movies released in 2002.

No Lata song from 2002 are covered in the blog. That leaves us with all eight songs from two movies of 2002 for discusussion in the blog.

alphabetically, the first movie of 2002 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to discuss is “Laal Salaam”(2002).

This movie was produced by Sanjiv Karambelkar and directed by Gaganvihari Borate for Manas Communications. The movie had Nandita Das, Sharad Kapoor, Makarand Deshpande, Vijay Raj, Rajpal Yadav, Anant Jog, Akhilendra Mishra, and Sayaji Shinde, Introducing Hemangini (Indroduction role), Vishwajeet Pradhan,Sushil Johri,Dwarika, Mahindra, Jyoti,Prithvi Singh,Sanjay Sonu, Ashraf, Ramayan, Nagesh Bhosle, Lallan Singh,Sanjay Shrivastav,Sivam,Anup, Subrow, Parveen Banu, Sumanth Chandramani, Uday Tikekar, Pramodini etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs had the voice of Lata Mangeshkar in them.

Here is that song from “Laal Salaam”(2002). This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Gulzar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar.

Only the audio of the song is available. It is almost certain that the song was picturised on Nandita Das.

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

With this song, “Laal Salaam”(2002) makes its debut in the blog.

Today 26th September’2021 is the thirty-secondth Remembrance Anniversary of Legendary Singer and Music Director of yesteryears Hemant Kumar.

Hemant Kumar Mukhopadhyay was born on 16th June 1920 at Benaras, Benaras State under British India.

He passed away on 26th September 1989 at the age of sixty-nine.

As a fan of Hemant Kumar’s voice, I had always liked his singing and his compositions that he has given us in the Hindi Film Music. He also sang in many regional languages including my mother tongue – ‘Marathi’. Ravindra Sangeet sung by him in ‘Bengali language’ is an immortal gift he left for all music connoisseurs.

Here, I am not going to mention his long list of achievements and the various awards and felicitations he received in his career in Music.

Today, as a tribute to him on his ‘Remembrance Day’ I would like to present a song from the 1966 movie – ‘Biwi Aur Makaan’. I had noted this song long back i.e., in 2013 however it still remained to be posted. Later, I tried to get it posted on anniversary of Gulzar and Hemant Kumar, but it could not succeed.

It is a ‘saawan song’ and though the ‘saawan’ month is behind us by now, we still have ‘showers’ continuing in some parts. This song will join the ‘saawan song’ club where we have more than hundred songs already posted.

I became aware of today’s song long back when I was in my ‘teens’. I think I listened to it for the first time on ‘All India Radio’ Urdu service program. After that when I started collecting music ‘cassettes’ I got this song in the ‘Vintage Favorites – Hemant Kumar’ brought by HMV in 1986. I have earlier given the details of other songs in this compilation in my post on the blog.

‘Biwi Aur Makaan-1966’ was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for ‘Geetanjali Pictures, Bombay’.
It had Vishwajeet, Kalpana, Mehmood, Shabnam, Ashish Kumar, Padma Devi, Bipin Gupta, Badri Prasad, Kanu Roy, Sarita Devi, Keshto Mukherjee, Ajit Chatterjee, Moni Chatterjee, Brahm Bharadwaj and many others.

This movie had ten songs written by Gulzar and composed by Hemant Kumar.

Here is the list of these nine songs of ‘Biwi Aur Makaan-1966’.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Khul simsim khullam khulaa Bula, Manna Dey Hemant Kumar
02 Yaar Kishan yah had ho gayi hai…jab dosti hoti hai to Manna Dey, Hemant Kumar, Balbir, Ghulam Muhammad
03 Rehne ko ghar do, chhat pe ho farsh yaa farsh pe chhat ho Manna Dey
04 Duniya mein do sayaane Jayant Mukherjee, Manna Dey, Hemant Kumar, chorus
05 Nahin hota suno aur … jab sanam Manna Dey, Mukesh, Hemant Kumar
06 Dabe labon se kabhi jo koyi salaam le le Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar 23.06.2009
07 Kitni anjaan sooratein lekar… jaane kahaan dekha hai Mohd Rafi 02.06.2014
08 Saawan mein barkha sataaye Hemant Kumar
09 Mujhko mohabbat ho gayi hai Joginder, Talat Mehmood, Manna Dey, Mukesh, Hemant Kumar 22.12.2016
10 Aise daaton mein ungli dabaao nahin Usha Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle 18.08.2021

From the table given above, we can see that so far only fours songs of this movie have been posted on the blog. Today’s song will be the fifth song from this movie to be posted on the blog.

The movie which started its journey on 23.06.2009, already having’ a long run on the blog, seems to be taking another ‘marathon run’ to cover all of its songs on the blog 😊

Let us now enjoy today’s song composed and sung by Hemant Kumar. Lyrics are by Gulzar …

I hope readers will enjoy this song as I did …


Song-Saawan mein barkha sataaye (Biwi Aur Makaan)(1966) Singer-Hemant Kumar, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

saawan mein ae ae
barkhaa sataaye

samajh na aaye
agan lagaaye kahin
agan bujhaaye
barkhaa raseeli jaise teri hansi ho
hans de zaraa ras barse ae ae
tere liye man tarse ae ae
tere liye man tarse
saawan mein barkhaa sataaye
pal pal chhin chhin barse ae ae
tere liye ae man tarse

aaj to barasne de
inn baadlon ko o
gori mili hai koyi in saanwlon ko
aaj to barasne de
inn baadlon ko o
gori mili hain koyi in saanwlon ko
barkhaa rangeeli jaisi nain ho tere
nain milaa rang barse ae ae ae
tere liye man tarse ae ae ae
tere liye man tarse ae

saawan mein ae barkhaa sataaye
pal pal chhin chhin barse ae ae
tere liye man tarse ae ae ae
tere liye man tarse

Hullo Atuldom

“Biwi Aur Makaan” (1966) had songs written by Gulzar, which were tuned by Hemant Kumar. It had 10 or 11 songs that were in the voices of Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar, Talat Mehmood, Manna Dey, Mukesh, Hemant Kumar, Mohd. Rafi etc. The movie was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee and produced by Hemant Kumar. Dialogues (the crux of any comedy movie) were by Rajinder Singh Bedi. Mehmood and Biswajeet headed a cast which also had Kalpana, Shabnam, Padma Khanna, Keshto Mukherjee, Bipin Gupta, Ashish Kumar etc.

The movie was the remake of a Bengali film “Joy Maa Kali Boarding” and an inspiration for the Marathi hit of the ’80s ‘Ashi Hi Banwa Banwi”. In Telugu it was made as “Chitram Bhalare Vichitram”. It has been made in Kannada, Tamil and the story was so inspiring that it had remakes in Bengali in 2017, Punjabi 2014 and Hindi 2009.

The story was of four bachelors who migrate from their villages to the big city. While attempting to access accomodation, they are repeatedly told that rooms will only be rented to married couples, not to bachelors. Frustrated at this, two of them disguise themselves as women, and pose as wives for the other two males. They are able to secure accommodation with the Mishra family. Complications arise when the two “women” fall in love with Mishra’s two lovely daughters – with results that can only be described as hilarious. Keshto Mukherjee’s act ad facial expression as ‘Badi Bahu’ and Biswajeet as the beautiful ‘Choti Bahu’ should be seen at least once. Of course, it was Mehmood’s timing that was the highlight of the film.

The following three songs from the movie are already on the blog:

Song Date of post Post by
Dabe labon se kabhi jo koyi 23 June 2009 (by Atulji)
Jaane kahaan dekha hai 2 June 2014 (by Sudhirji)
Mujhe mohabbat ho gayi hai 22 December 2016 (by Maheshji)

I had commented to the song “dabe labon se kabhi jo koyi” in 2017 after seeing the Marathi version of this movie about how Ashok Saraf matched Mehmood (imho) and Sachin looked as pretty as Biswajeet in the guise of a lady.

We are having this song today to wish the poet-lyricist-author-director- producer- screenwriter Sampooran Singh Kalra a.k.a Gulzar on turning a year older. He was born in 1934 in Dina of Jhelum district which is in present day Pakistan. He is married to actress Rakhee and has a daughter Meghana who is also a director of movies like ‘Filhaal’, ‘Raazi’, Chhapaak’ and such other non-run-of-the-mill movies.

Gulzar (who initially worked under the name Gulzar Deenvi) started his music career with SD Burman in the 1963 classic ‘Bandini’ and worked with many music directors like Salil Chowdhury, Vishal Bhardwaj, A.R. Rehman etc. Can one forget the songs that his pairing with RD Burman gave lovers of Bollywood music. He is a winner of the Padma Bhushan, Sahitya Academy award and Dadasaheb Phalke award. He is a 5 time National award, one Academy award (Oscars) and Grammy too in addition to innumerable Filmfare awards.

It would be a ‘chota munh aur badi baat’ (holding a candle to the sun) kind of situation if I attempt writing anything on such an accomplished personality. So, let us get to today’s song and Just wish our favourite writer/ lyricist/ producer/ director/ screenwriter/ poet a healthy and peaceful time ahead.

raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

koi sapnon mein aata raha raat bhar
koi sapnon mein aata raha raat bhar
na main soyi na jaagi sataao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

kaun thha
kaisa thha
bataao naa
koi anjaan si ek pehchaan thhi
meri aankhon pe jhuk kar bulaati rahi
koi anjaan si ek pehchhan thi
meri aankhon pe jhuk kar bulaati rahi
na main boli
na main jaagi
sirf saanson ki awaaz aati rahi
ek aaghosh mein kaid thhi raat bhar
lo bata toh diya sataao nahin
tumko sapnon ki saugandh banaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin
tumko sapnon ki saugandh banaao nahin
raat jaagi ho hamse chhupaao nahin

jism jalta raha jaise khushboo jale
saans honthon pe aakar sulagte rahe
jism jalta raha jaise khushboo jale
saans honthon pe aakar sulagte rahe
na jali main
na bujhi main
mere honthon pe saawan baraste rahe
shokh malta raha sediyaan raat bhar
lo bata toh diya ab sataao nahin
jaao jaao hamein yoon banaao nahin
dil diya hai kisi ko chhupao nahin
aise daanton mein ungli dabaao nahin
dil diya hai kisi ko chhupaao nahin

This song is sung by Sulakshana Pandit and Jagjeet Kaur.

I am unable to identify the two ladies who lip sync the song. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

This is Gulzar !

— KITAABEN —

Kitaaben jhaankti hain band almaari ke sheeshon se
badi hasrat se takti hain
mahinon ab mulaqaaten nahin hotin
jo shaamen unn ki sohbat mein kata karti thhin, ab aksar
guzar jaati hain computer ke pardon par
badi bechain rehti hain kitaaben
unhen ab neend mein chalne ki ‘aadat ho gayi hai

badi hasrat se takti hain
jo qadren wo sunaati thhin
ke jin ke cell kabhi marte nahin thhe
wo qadren ab nazar aati nahin ghar mein
jo rishte wo sunaati thhin
wo saare udhde udhde hain

koyi safha palat-ta hoon to ik siski nikalti hai
kayi lafzon ke ma’ani gir pade hain
bina patton ke sukhe tund lagte hain vo alfaaz
jin par ab koyi ma’ani nahin ugte
bahut se istelaahen hain
jo mitti ki sakoron ki tarah bikhri padi hain
gilaason ne unhen matruk kar daala

zaban par zaiqa aata thha jo safhe palatne ka
ab ungli click karne se bas ek
jhapki guzarti hai
bahut kuchh tah-ba-tah khultaa chalaa jaata hai parde par
kitaabon se jo zaati raabta thha kat gayaa hai
kabhi seene pe rakh ke let jaate thhe
kabhi godi mein lete thhe
kabhi ghutnon ko apne rehal ki soorat bana kar
neem sajde mein padha karte thhe, chhute thhe jabeen se
wo saara ilm to milta rahegaa ‘aayinda bhi
magar wo jo kitaabon mein milaa karte thhe sookhe phool aur
mehke huey ruq’ae
kitaaben maangne, girne utthaane ke bahane rishte bante thhe
unn ka kya hogaa
wo shayad ab nahin honge !

—– GULZAR

I think the above poem is enough as introduction and ta’aruf of Gulzar Sahab.
Faced with such ‘qalaam’, what does it matter when and where he was born. Yes, Gulzar sahab has turned 86 today. May he live to be 186 or more, as long as he creates such ‘naayab nageene’ as nazmen and naghme.

— Urdu zabaan —-

Ye kaisa ishq hai urdu zaban kaa,
mazaa ghultaa hai lafzon ka zuban par
ki jaise paan mein mehenga qimaam ghultaa hai
ye kaisa ishq hai urdu zaban kaa….

nasha aataa hai urdu bolne mein
gilauri ki tarah hain munh lagi sab isltelaahen
lutf deti hai, halaq chhooti hai urdu to,
halaq se jaise mai ka ghunt utarta hai

badi aristocracy hai zaban mein
faqeeri mein nawaabi ka mazaa deti hai urdu
agarche ma’ani kam hote hain urdu mein
alfaaz ki ifraat hoti hai

magar phir bhi buland awaaz padhiye
to bohat hi mu’atabar lagti hain baaten
kahin kuchh dur se kaanon mein padhti hai agar urdu
to lagtaa hai ke din jaadon ke hain khidki khuli hai,
dhoop andar aa rahi hai

ajab hai ye zaban urdu
kabhi kahin safar karte agar koyi musaafir
sher padh de ‘mir’, ‘ghalib’ ka
wo chaahe ajnabi ho,
yahi lagtaa hai wo mere watan ka hai
badi sha’ista lehje mein kisi se urdu sun kar
kya nahin lagtaa ki ek tehzeeb ki awaaz hai urdu.

—– GULZAR ——-

How true the above thoughts are, so inherently accurate for urdu, the spoken language.

Thanks dear ‘Peevesie’s Mom’, for reminding me of Gulzar Sahab birthday and this movie ‘Hu Tu Tu’ and its deeply meaningful songs, written by Gulzar sahab.
Also a well composed and picturised song. Composer is Vishal Bharadwaj and singers are mainly Lata Mangeshkar and Hariharan. There are more voices singing some goan rhythm at the start and koli folk song in the middle.

But the star of the show is Gulzar sahab’s unmatched poetry.

Hullo Atuldom

Thank you Nahmji for reminding me of this song. How? Well in your previous post on Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan you mentioned his nephew. And immediately I thought of today’s song which is written by the poet, lyricist, author screenwriter and director who turns a year younger today.

This man has worked with all the legends of the Hindi film industry beginning (as lyricist) with Sachin Dev Burman in 1963 in a movie directed by Bimal Roy. His last released movie is “The Sky is Pink” which released in September 2019 and was directed by Shonali Bose (a new director who has been making films since 2005) and had music by Pritam Chakravarty. In the interim (1963 to 2019) he has written songs for movies directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee, Asit Sen etc of the earlier brigade and Shaad Ali, Mani Ratnam, Danny Boyle etc from the newer set of directors. He has of course written songs in the movies he himself directed, the last of which came in 1999 – Hu Tu Tu. This Sahitya Akademi, Dadasaheb Phalke, Padma Bhushan award winner has won several National Film awards, 21 Filmfare awards and also an Academy Award (popular as Oscars) plus a Grammy. Such a talent that even International juries cannot ignore right?

So it must already be clear that I am here wishing Shri. Sampooran Singh Kalra professionally called Gulzar on his 86th birthday. There is enough material in various posts about this man’s biography so let us go directly to the song which has a play of words that is typical of Gulzar saab.

In this song he has used words like “Piri” which I am sure that common people like me don’t know the meaning of. I would love it if someone can give synonyms.
This song is from “Ishqiya” which released in 2010. (10 years back). It was directed by Abhishek Chaubey, produced by Raman Maroo and Vishal Bharadwaj and has music by Vishal Bharadwaj. It had a highly talented star cast headed by stalwart Naseeruddin Shah, Vidya Balan, Arshad Warsi and a whole lot of talent in supporting cast too. It was written by Gulzar too. The story was placed in Gorakhpur. It had to do with the escapades of two criminals who botch up a job and run away to take refuge in the home of one Vidyadhar Verma (Adil Hussain- remember seeing him as Sridevi’s husband in “English Vinglish”) and end up meeting Verma’s wife Krishna (Vidya Balan) who gives them shelter to achieve her own secret goal.

Baaki ki kahaani parde pe (see the movie to enjoy this ‘black comedy’). After all if this 86 year old can say “dil toh bachcha hai ji” even we, his fans, should have bachhpana in our “dil”
The song is sung by Raahat Fateh Ali Khan.

Happy Birthday once again Kalraji a.k.a Gulzar saab.

Song-Dil to bachcha hai jee (Ishqiya)(2010) Singer-Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Vishal Bhardwaj

Lyrics

aisi uljhi nazar unse hat’ti nahin
daant se reshmi dor kat’ti nahin
umr kabki baras ke sufed ho gayi
kaari badri jawaani ki chhat’ti nahin
wallah yeh dhadkan
badhne lagi hai
chehre ki rangat
udne lagi hai
darr lagta hai tanha sone mein jee
dil toh bachcha hai jee
dil toh bachcha hai jee
thoda kachcha hai jee
aaaaa
dil toh bachcha hai jee
aisi uljhi nazar unse hat’ti nahin
daantse reshmi dor kat’ti nahin
umr kab ki baras ke sufed ho gayi
kaari badri jawaani ki chhant’ti nahin
raaa ra aaa aaa aa
raaa ra aaa aaa aa
raaa ra aaa aaa aa
raaa
raaa ra aaa aaa aa
raaa ra aaa aaa aa
raaa ra aaa aaa aa
raaa

kisko pata thha pehlu mein rakkha
dil aisa paaji bhi hoga
hum toh hamesha samajhte thhe koi
hum jaisa haaji hi hoga
haaye zor karein kitna shor karein
bewajah baaton pe ainvayi gaur karen
dil sa koi kameena aa nahin
koi toh roke
koi toh toke
iss umr mein ab khaaoge dhokhe
darr lagta hai ishq karne mein jee
dil toh bachcha hai jee,
dil toh bachcha hai jee
thhoda kachcha hai jee,
aaaa
dil toh bachcha hai jee

aisi udaasi baithhi hai dil pe
hansne se ghabra rahe hai
saari jawaani katra ke kaati
piri mein takra gaye hai
dil dhadkta hai toh
aise lagta hai woh
aa raha hai yahin dekhta hi raho
prem ki maare kataar re ae
tauba yeh lamhe
kat’te nahin kyun
aankhon se meri
hat’te nahin kyun
darr lagta hai khud se kehne mein bhi
dil toh bachcha hai jee,
dil toh bachcha hai jee
thhoda kachcha hai jee,
aaaaa
dil to bachcha hai jee
