Tribute to Lata Mangeshkar – 2

Yaraa seeli seeli
birha ki raat ka jalnaa
dholaa seeli seeli
yeh bhi koyi jeenaa hai
yeh bhi koyi marnaa

O how slow is the night(lamp)
Burning to ambers, Oh love
Oh love, the slow burn
of the lonely lamp.
is this way of the living?
Or it is the way of the dead.

tooti hui choodiyon se
jodoon yeh kalaayi main ae
pichhli gali mein jaane
kya chhod aayi main
beetee huyi galiyon se ae
phir se guzarna yaraa

broken are they,
the bangles I try to adorn.
(They were whole once-my loved ones)
In the lane behind me,
What have I left behind.
(something in the previous life)
Those same lanes, call me,
I must pass by them again, love.

pairon mein na saaya koyi
sar pe na saayin re
mere saathh jaaye naa
meri parchhaayi re
baahar ujaalaa hai
andar veeraana

No one beside me, no shade (for feet).
No Lord(benevolent),
even to care for me.
No one goes with me,
not even my shadow.
All brightness is on the outside.
Inside it is all dark and desolate, my love.

In 1990, I was fascinated with this song. Not seen the song anywhere, only heard it on the radio. I don’t remember what else I knew about it, only that Dimple Kapadia was the actress, singing this on screen. I was working in a private firm’s office in Santacruz. There was this girl working there called ‘Heather’, who was looking to change jobs. She asked me to accompany her for interview somewhere at Bandra. In my turn, I also persuaded her to come with me to watch this movie at Liberty Cinema. After the interview, we reached the city and were late for the movie. It had already started, and ‘Heather tried to change my mind, about wasting the ticket money. But having gone so far, I was not in the mood to go back home without watching the movie. It was 3 to 3:30, almost 1 hour of the movie was over. We got the tickets and went inside the hall. In that red carpeted hall, it was as if we were alone in there. Soon interval came, and to our astonishment, there was no one to be seen. Heather said it is not safe to sit in there for us 2 girls and we should just get out. Finally, some I came to my senses we left the cinema.

That incident in 1991, and my ‘khwaahish’ to see this movie remained unfulfilled. Until a few years ago, when I again remembered this film and saw it on YouTube. Ah! What would we have done without YouTube. All the while I was listening to this song, and may have seen it somewhere on TV. Or found it on YouTube.

The awards list of this song is also impressive.
• 1991 – Filmfare Awards – Best Lyricist – Gulzar
• 1990 – National Film Awards – Best Female Playback Singer – Lata Mangeshkar
• 1990 – National Film Awards – Best Lyrics – Gulzar
Trivia:
This song was based on the Punjabi song “Ve Main Chori Chori” composed and sung by the Pakistani folk artist Reshma.
The folk flavour of this song, and the fresh analogies that Gulzar has made in lyrics of this song, made it very special. The super rendition by Lata Mangeshkar has also won her the National Award, yet again.

The following 3 songs are posted in the blog.

Song Date of posting
Main ek sadi se baithhi hoon 6 February 2022
Suniye jee araj mhaaro 26 October 2012
Surmayee shaam is tarah aaye (Lekin) 18 august 2022

This song is a significant one as the film music scene was just picking up, sufiana and Punjabi folk was gaining momentum. Here again, the relevance of Lata Mangeshkar, as a grand doyen of female playback singers, was established. She was singing for R. D. Burman, Laxminkant Pyarelal, of the old brigade and also for new breed of musician through the 90’s.

AR Rehman – The Musician of 21st Century – 4

Agar firdaus bar-rū-e-zamīñ ast
Hamīñ ast o hamīñ ast o hamīñ ast

Dekh tera kya rang kar diya hai
Khushboo ka jhonka tere sang kar diya hai

If I say that the above lines perfectly describe the colourful sights and smells of Kashmir, then it is much less than what I want to say. The first time I travelled outside Maharashtra, north of Mumbai, was the trip to Kashmir combined with Delhi-Agra visit back in 2012. So, after 10 years I just thought, let’s do a package tour this time. There we were, 6 of us in the group, a couple from Bangalore, two senior ladies from Gujarat and my husband with his better half 😊. We two reached a day earlier then the group tour was to start, in the 3rd week of August. This was right after the engagement ceremony in Belgaum. So, we got to stay in two different houseboats and we covered Yusmarg, another beautiful part of the valley, a little off the beaten track. Apart from Srinagar, this was the only place I got to see a crowd of local people. There were some school groups, who were visiting that day. Lots of girls and boys in school uniforms with teachers.

About houseboat stay: Exquisitely carved wooden boat, living in them is a different and unique experience. They are stationary, and all of them have the same type of facilities and services are very basic. Meals are provided in house, by the household of the owners living behind the houseboats, in the houses on the island in the Dal lake. There are many ghats for travelling to and fro from house boats. And you cannot travel from one house boats covered by one ghat, to another houseboat coming under the jurisdiction of another ghat. The shikaras cannot trespass into each other’s territories, in other words. They will drop you to their own ghat, then you can make your own way to which ever ghat your other houseboat comes under and take a fresh shikara from there. In order to find a Kashmir song, I saw a few songs of ‘Mission Kashmir”. In them, the interiors of the houseboat shown are very authentic and close to the real thing. But most of the scenes in that song showing area surrounding the houseboat is shot in studio, and not realistic at all.

Yeh jhonka tere ghar ka rastaa banegaa
Akele mein tujh se mila to kahegaa

Next place to travel was Pahalgham, where we stayed to 2 nights. The hightlight is travelling to Pahalgham by road. The whole area and travel, is a scenic beauty. I was clicking away on my mobile and it was never enough. Another turn of the road, and there is more to see, the same mountains and trees but different to click. This time I can say, I really looked at Kashmir through the camera on my mobile. It also makes me wonder how this type of natural beautiful views must be affecting the professional photographers. I am sure the film industry photographers have shot reels and reels of the views here, and most of it could not be included in the final edited film. Pahalgham has not changed much from 2012. It is a town high up in the mountainous valley, surrounded by huge mountains. They have developed the Betaab valley as a big picnic spot, and entry fee. It has artificially created pebble beach, with patches of forests, pathways and open gardens. The ‘Lidder’ river is really magnificent to travel along, with deep gorges and water dancing along huge boulders. River rafting could be delighting for those who can.

Tu aa jaa main tere sang chaloon
Satrangi ke le ke rang chaloon

Next stop was at Gulmarg, which has changed, more commercial, more horses and horsemen then tourist. The situation is the same at Yusmarg, as there were very few tourists there. But at Gulmarg, tourists were there, but the whole area seems to be swarming with horses and guides. On our last visit, we could not get the tickets for Gondola ride. This time the tour operator has arranged tickets, so I was excited to go so high up in the mountains. But the tour company messed up our booking, and they had booked it for the next day. Next day, we were to leave for Srinagar. All the group members called up the tour operators contacts, but it was a Sunday, the office was closed. Eventually, the issue was resolved, and the tickets were arranged. So, we went up level 1 on the gondola, and 4 of us went to the next level i. e. Level 2 also, and we climbed down a side of the mountain to get to the last remaining patch of ice. That patch had not melted as direct sun light is not falling on that side of the mountain. In August, there is no snow/ice anywhere in Kashmir, except the glaciers, which are obviously too far to reach.

Tere paas yaadon ka melaa rahegaa
Tu logon mein reh kar akelaa rahegaa

We returned to Srinagar, and next day was for sight seeing at Srinagar and shopping. Shankar Acharya temple visit, and Gardens were scheduled, but Nishat Baug was closed that day, so we could only visit Shalimar Garden and click the photos there.

Next day was the day trip to Sonmarg, which is on the road to Laddakh. This is again an enchanting journey through the valleys. With the huge mountains, (we don’t have such mountains in our region) make us wonder at the creator. The Himalayas are the highest mountain range in the world, with top two peaks in this range, the Mount Everest and K-II. I was just writing this on guess work, but thought to research the top ten peaks in the world. This is the result:

List of 10 highest mountains of the world

Rank Mountain Range Country Height (ft.)
1. Everest Himalayas Nepal, China 29,031.7
2. K2 (Mount Godwin Austen) Karakoram Pakistan, China 28,251
3. Kangchenjunga Himalayas India, Nepal 28,169
4. Lhotse Himalayas Nepal, China 27,940
5. Makalu Himalayas Nepal, China 27,838
6. Cho Oyu Himalayas Nepal, China 26,864
7. Dhaulagiri Himalayas Nepal 26,795
8. Manaslu Himalayas Nepal 26,781
9. Nanga Parbat Himalayas Pakistan 26,660
10. Annapurna Himalayas Nepal 26,545

The Himalayas account for all ten of them. I should have looked for top 20, then maybe I will get some variety. No such luck as the top 20 also all in the Himalayas. (Highest mountains), only the last few out of the 8 thousanders’(in meters) list.

On my last trip, we were unable to tolerate the cold, and returned to Srinagar halfway from Sonamarg. This time since the weather was tolerably cold, we did reach the area where the Glacier is visible. People go near the streams and nearer to the Glacier, on horseback. We travelled a little distance up the mountain on horse but came back early. The couple from Bangalore went the whole hog and made the most of the trip, as they did the horse-riding expedition in Pahalgham too.

Sonmarg in Summer

The 55,000 glaciers in the Himalaya, Karakoram, and Hindu Kush (HKHK) mountain ranges store more freshwater than any region outside of the North and South Poles. Their ice reserves feed into three major river basins in South Asia—the Indus, Ganges, and Brahmaputra—that are home to 750 million people.
Ten thousand of these are India, this page has some of the glacier ranges pictures.

I have found another Bollywood song, part of which is shot near to the Thajiwas glacier. I will post that outdoorsy song and then we can see how huge it was then and compare it to the present status in the you tube links given above. There is the chance to write more about the glaciers and rivers and mountains of Kashmir.

Dekh tera kya rang kar diya hai
Khushboo ka jhonka tere sang kar diya hai

(Muhammed Nasir)

My search of songs filmed in Kashmir took me to the movie “Jab tak hai Jaan”(2012), songs of which were composed by A. R. Rehman. There are other songs in the movie that are very rich and appealing. Punjabi folk and sufiana are accounting for 80% of creativity in hindi film music even in the 21st century. But this song won out on location shoots.

So this catchy songs, filmed part in Gulmarg, Part in Pehalgham, part in Yusmarg and the fabulous reflective Dal lake, sung by Neeti Mohan and written by Gulzar is post no. 4 of A. R. Rehman series. River rafting in Lidder river and the road towards Pehelgham are the locations, no one could avoid if you got a film unit to shoot in Kashmir. Anushka Sharma is singing, and Shah Rukh Khan is also seen in the song. The audio recording of the song focuses on Neeti Mohan’s powerful vocals. There are as many different singers as songs in this score.

‘Dedh Ishqiyaan’ (2014) was a sequel to ‘Ishqiya’ (2010). Both the films were produced under the banner of V B Films of Vishal Bhardwaj along with Raman Maroo and were directed by Abhishek Choube. While the main actors, Naseeruddin Shah, Arshad Warsi and Salman Shahid were retained for the sequel, the lead actress, Vidya Balan was replaced with Madhuri Dixit. Other supporting actors were Huma Qureshi, Vijay Raaz, Manoj Pahwa, Mehmood Hashmi, Ravi Gosain etc.

The story of the film was written by Darab Farooqui. It is said that the film’s story has been partly influenced by Ismat Chughtai’s short story ‘Lihaaf’ which was published in a Lahore-based Urdu journal in 1942. ‘Lihaaf’ sets out the events following the sexual awakening in Begum Jan after her unhappy marriage with a Nawab. She gets into a romantic relationship with her female attendant. This became a big issue in 1942. A legal case was filed against Ismat Chughtai on charges of obscenity in the Lahore High Court. She was subsequently exonerated from the charges (Source: ‘The Feminist Voice of Ismat Chughtai’ – The DAWN, 27/11/2016). Probably, the director of ‘Dedh Ishqiyaan’ (2014) did not want to take that risk. So, in the film, the relationship between Begum Para (Madhuri Dixit) and Munniya (Huma Qureshi) were discreetly shown in the film.

I have seen this film 5-6 years back and again a few days back on YouTube. There are plenty of this film’s reviews available online. So, I will not go into the details. The film is a romantic comedy thriller. Everything about this film turned out to be right – the performances of the actors, a sleek screenplay, catchy dialogues in chaste Urdu, good cinematography, excellent lyrics, dance, and music compositions. The pair of Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi stole the show. Madhuri Dixit excelled in the role of Begum Para, depicting varied emotions apart from her excellent dances. Huma Qureshi acted well in pairing with Madhuri Dixit in the role of Munniya, her attendant. Vijay Raaz in the role of a politician and Nawab-in-waiting and Salman Shahid in the role of a gangster boss have been outstanding.

The film received very good reviews from the critics. But, as per box office report, upon the film’s release in early January 2014, it achieved the average collection at the box office. Based on the worldwide box office collections, the film barely recovered the cost of production. I am not surprised as this is not a mainstream Bollywood film. In my view, this film will attain the status of a classic film over time and all those associated with this film will feel proud.

I was curious to know as to why the film’s sequel title was chosen as ‘Dedh Ishqiyaan’. Why was the usual sequel title ‘Ishqiya-2’ (like Drishyam-2, the latest sequel film) not chosen? I tried to find out from some videos about the film, available online, but could not come across any formal explanation from the producer or director. There were a couple of videos available online on the making of the film in which actors and unit members tried to guess as to what the reason for this title could be. A unit member guessed that it could be a marketing gimmick. Madhuri Dixit pointed out that extra smart persons in Marathi are called ‘Deed Shahane’. She guessed that the film’s title may have reflected the main characters in the film, who are all conmen, who individually think that they are smarter to outwit the other conmen. The most interesting explanation of the title came from a reviewer of the film who felt that ‘Dedh Ishqiyaan’ means ‘one and a half passionate.’ Naseeruddin Shah, posing as a Nawab and Arshad Warsi, posing as his orderly are passionately in love with Madhuri Dixit and Huma Qureshi, respectively. This is ‘one’ type of love. On the other hand, Madhuri Dixit posing as a wealthy Begum of a deceased Nawab and Huma Qureshi as her attendant, have romantic relationship which the reviewer counts as half love.

‘Dedh Ishqiyaan’ (2014) had six songs, excluding remix versions, all written by Gulzar and set to music by Vishal Bhardwaj. None of the songs from the film has been covered in the Blog. My favourite 3 songs from the film are – (1) ‘hamaari atariya pe aaja re saanwariya’, (2) ‘jagaave saari raina’ and (3) ‘na bolun main to kaleja phoonkey’. The first two are semi-classical songs while Gulzar’s lyrics in third song has a Sufiana touch which influenced me to select this as the first song from the film to appear on the Blog. Let me attempt the translation of the song:

na boloon main to kaleja phoonkey
jo bol doon to zabaan jale hai
sulag na jaave agar sune wo
jo baat meri zabaan tale hain

If I don’t say, my heart puffs. If I say, my tongue burns. I hope she does not get angry if she hears what I have concealed below my tongue. [The lover is in catch-22 situation in disclosing his love to the beloved].

lage na phir youn ke rog laage
na saans aave na saans jaave
ye ishq hai namuraad aisa
ke jaan leve tabhi tale hain

Getting infected with love is like a disease. Neither one can inhale or exhale breath. This love is such a loser that it leaves only when it takes one’s life. [In Arabic literature, love has 7 stages. Death is the 7th and the last stage. The film also talks about the 7 stages of love. Hence Gulzar may have in mind the 7th stage of love while writing ‘ke jaan leve tabhi tale hain’] .

hamaari haalat pe kitta rove hai
aasmaan bhi tu dekh leejo
ke surkh ho jaave uski aankhen
jaise jaise din dhale hai

Looking at my condition, you see how much the sky has shed tears so much that even his eyes have become red as the day turns to dusk. [Gulzar has beautifully used the metaphor of the sky’s colour at the dusk as teary eyes turning red as the day ends].

I was under the impression that this song sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan was in the film’s soundtrack. While watching the film, I was surprised to know that in the film, it was sung by Raju Singh for Naseeruddin Shah who recites the poem in a mushaira in tarannum (tune) without the accomplishment of music. The song sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan with orchestration has been released on audio. I do not think that the song sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is a version song because all the songs of the film, including that of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan were released a week before the release of the film in the theatres. This suggests that initially, the director had thought of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan singing for Naseeruddin Shah as a full-fledged song. Probably, on second thought the director may have felt that it would look authentic to render this song as a recitation of poetry without orchestration in a mushaira scene. Since Rahat Fateh Ali Khan was based in Pakistan, Raju Singh who is also the music director and singer in his own right, was roped in to sing this song sans the last antara.

Enjoy the song in Sufiana lyrics and melody with pop music orchestration, mainly with the string instruments.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 124
————————————————————————————–

Ten years back on this date viz on 7 October 2012, five songs from five movies were covered on the blog. Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6960 Palat tera dhyaan kidhar hai Sanjog (1943) Movie YIPPEED by now

We can observe that four movies (out of five) whose songs were covered on this date ten years ago (7 november 2012) have since been YIPPEEd.

That leaves us with only one movie that remains unYIPPEED and therefore is eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today (7 november 2022).

That movie is “Sadmaa”(1983).

“Sadmaa”(1983) was produced by Romu N Sippy and Raj N Sippy and directed by Balu Mahendra. This movie was a remake of Tamil movie ”Moondram Pirai” (1982).

The movie had six songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Sadmaa”(1983) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Suresh Wadkar and chorus. The song is penned by Gulzar. Music is composed by Ilaiyaraja.

The song is picturised on Anand Balraj aka Andy Balraj and Sridevi.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 98
————————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 22 September 2012) saw six songs from six different movies getting covered in the blog.

Here are the details:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
6695 Jeet jyot tez chamak raha hai Amar Jyoti (1936) 8 songs out of 11 songs covered by now

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 93
————————————————————————————–

Ten years back on this day i.e., 17th September ’2012 the following songs were posted on the blog.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Aji aawo muhabbat ki khaa le qasam Shehanaayi(1947 ) All songs covered

Jahaan pe sawera ho basera wahin hai Baseraa(1981) 1 of 6 songs posted
Chanda re chanda re kabhi to zameen par aa Sapnay(1997) 1 songs posted

From the above table we can see that ten years back ‘this day’ was a great day for the blog as a ‘whopping’ nine songs were posted on that day.

From the above nine movies represented on the blog on that day five movies have already been YIPPEED on the blog.

So, we have the following four movies remaining where we can discuss song/s from this movie on the blog today.

– ‘Ghar Ka Chiraag-1967’
– ‘Chhotaa Baap – 1977’
– ‘Baseraa-1981’
– ‘Sapnay-1997’

I am presenting a song from the ‘1981’ movie ‘Baseraa’. One well known song from this movie have already been posted on the blog.

“Basera” was a Rose Movies presentation. It was produced by Ramesh Behl and directed by Ramesh Talwar.
The movie had Shashi Kapoor, Rakhee Gulzar, Rekha, Poonam Dhillon, Ifthekhar, A.K. Hangal, Raj Kiran, Master Vikas, Pardesi, Raj Verama/Chandu, Baby Gazala, Salma, Kirit Vyas, Mrs. H.F. Mistry, Vishwanath, Sudha Chopra, Gulshan/Harjeet, Raj Bharti, Tikka Singh etc in it.

This movie has six songs in it which are all penned by Gulzar.

Gulzar Saab also wrote the screenplay, dialogues, and story of this movie.

Music for this film was composed by R.D. Burman.

Our dear Prakash ji had shared two songs from this movie for the today’s occasion. However, I am presenting a different – lesser heard song from this movie for today’s occasion.

I was not aware of this song till one year back or may be a little more than that. But, during the last one year I had heard it many times on ‘Radio’ (VVB) and since then I have been liking this song very much.

This song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is lip synced by Raj Kiran and Poonam Dhillon. Many other artists are also seen in the picturisation of this song on screen.

This is the only Kishore Kumar song in this movie ‘Basera-1981’ and on the blog too we surely are due for a Kishore Kumar song now, as the last Kishore song on the blog was posted on 13.08.2022.

More about this movie ‘Baseraa-1981’ and its songs will be covered in future posts of this movie-songs on the blog 😊

Till then let us now listen to today’s song …

I hope that readers will also enjoy this song.

A stalwart of many talents, a multi faceted personality who was single handedly responsible for bringing to life the endeavors of Assamese cinema, bringing international recognition to the age old music and culture of far eastern India.

Remembering Dr Bhupen Hazrika on the anniversary of his birth – he would have been 96 today. He is known as ‘Shudha Kontho’ – the one with the nectar of amrit (shudha, sudha) in his throat.

He was born in Sadiya, Assam in 1926. Even as a child, his musical and singing talents were evident. In 1939, at the tender age of 12, he recorded his first song for the Assamese talkie film ‘Indramalati’ (1939). His traveled to faraway Benaras for his education (BA and MA degrees in Political Science, 1944 and 1946), and then to the US for his PhD to New York (Columbia University, 1952). However, the association that was established in childhood would be sustained and strengthened over the years. 

He became recognized as a renowned film maker in the east. As a renowned musician, and a multi lingual lyricist and vocalist, he was the representative face of the music and culture of that region. And more than that, he was the cultural ambassador of India to the rest of the world.

Many awards and accolades came to him throughout his illustrious career, most notable being the Sangeet Natak Academy award in 1987, Dadasaheb Phalke lifetime achievement award in 1993, and the Padma Bhushan in 2001. He was the president of the Sangeet Natak Academy from 1999 to 2004. As a creator of films and film music, he has been conferred many honors by film associations and critics associations in the US, Japan, Bangladesh, besides India.

Bhupen Hazarika breathed his last on 5th November, 2011.

‘Rudaali’, a 1993 production by the feminist film maker and director, Kalpana Lajmi, is a story about the life and tribulations of Shanichari (Dimple Kapadia), a poor woman, abandoned by her own family as a child, and later in life, abandoned by the man whom she loves. A caustic and a weather beaten personality, her life is dogged by one misfortune after another. But the character within is stronger than steel, and she faces the world without a tear in her eye. The strength of her resolve is at conflict with her profession of a mourning woman, rudaali, in the villages of interior Rajasthan. The film is a powerful commentary on the traditional status of women in rural India. The film itself, and the portrayal if the central character by Dimple Kapadia, has won many awards and recognitions, both national and international.

The lyrics of this film are penned by Gulzar, and the haunting music is from the mind of Bhupen Hazarika. This particular song is rendered both by Bhupen Hazarika and Lata Mangeshkar. The deep baritone voice of Bhupen Hazarika so strongly brings to life the powerful verses.

The song tells about the personal sorrows and tribulations of the protagonist – Shanichari, a rudaali woman in rural Rajasthan. Bhupen Hazarika version plays in the background, as we the entire life of Shanichari crumbling and wasted around her. We see her sitting next to her husband’s funeral pyre, slowly removing all her jewellery and adornments. Later in the song, she is face to face with Raj Babbar, her lover, who has also abandoned her. The words are so evocative and portray the sadness that reigns inside her. “Teri Oonchi Ataari, Maine Pankh Liye Katvaaye” – your adobe is at such a height, and the miserable me has shorn off her wings.

A deeply moving experience about life itself.

Bhupen Hazaarika Version

Lata Mangeshkar Version

Song – Dil Hoom Hoom Kare Ghabraaye  (Rudaali) (1993) Singer – Bhupen Hazaarika, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Gulzar, MD – Bhupen Hazarika

Lyrics

Bhupen Hazarika version

dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye,
ghan dham dham kare garjaaye
ik boond tabhi paani ki
mori akhiyon se barsaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

teri jhori daarun
sab sookhe paat jo aaye
tera chhua laage
meri sookhi daal hariaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

jis tan ko chhua tune
us tan ko chhupaaun
jis mann ko lagey naina
woh kisko dikhaaun
o more chandrama aaa
teri chaandani ang jalaaye
oonchi tor ataari
maine pankh liye katwaaye

dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye,
ghan dham dham kare garjaaye
ek boond kabhi paani ki
mori akhiyon se barsaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

Lata Mangeshkar version

dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye,
ghan dham dham kare garjaaye
ik boond tabhi paani ki
mori akhiyon se barsaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

teri jhori daarun
sab sookhe paat jo aaye
tera chhua laage
meri sookhi daal hariaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

jis tan ko chhua tune
us tan ko chhupaaun
jis mann ko lagey naina
woh kisko dikhaaun
o more chandrama aaa
teri chaandani ang jalaaye
teri oonchi ataari
maine pankh liye katwaaye

dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye,
ghan dham dham kare garjaaye
ek boond kabhi paani ki
mori akhiyon se barsaaye
dil hoom hoom kare ghabraaye

दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए
घन धम धम करे गरजाये
इक बूंद तभी पानी की
मोरी अखियों से बरसाए
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

तेरी झोरी डारूं
सब सूखे पात जो आए
तेरा छुआ लागे
मेरी सूखी डाल हरीआये
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

जिस तन को छुआ तूने
उस तन को छुपाऊँ
जी मन को लागे नैना
वो किसको दिखाऊँ
ओर मोरे चन्द्रमा आ
तेरी चाँदनी अंग जलाए
ऊंची तोर अटारी
मैंने पंख लिए कटवाए

दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए
घन धम धम करे गरजाये
इक बूंद तभी पानी की
मोरी अखियों से बरसाए
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

लता मंगेशकर

दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए
घन धम धम करे गरजाये
इक बूंद तभी पानी की
मोरी अखियों से बरसाए
दिल हूम हूम करे घबराए

Blog Day :

5144 Post No. : 17106

Today 18th August 2022 is the eighty-eighth birthday of Poet, Lyricst, Writer, Director, etc. Shri Sampooran Singh Kalra whom we know by his pen name ‘Gulzar’ (born on 18.08.1934).

Gulzar Saab has come a long way in the film industry starting from ‘Shriman Satyawadi’ (1960) and ‘Kabuliwaala’ (1961) to the recently released (on OTT) ‘Darlings-2022’ (where he wrote lyrics for a song).

Much has been written about him and most of us are well aware of his ‘cinematic excellence’ and his unique ‘poetry’ where he uses the ‘similes’ in his unique ways in his poetry and lyrics in Hindi Film Music.

There have been numerous posts on the blog about Gulzar Saab and there will be many coming in future. So, today, I am not going into the details of his movies and lyrics list which I like most or which have left an indelible mark on my mind. But I would like to mention here that while Gulzar Saab have done so much in all areas of writing, cinema, and poetry I have yet to read many of his works other than movies. However, in the case of movies I can say that I have watched many of the movies directed by him. And l loved them all.

One more thing which I am very fond of Gulzar Saab is his writings for children or his lyrics for the movies for children and the non-filmi albums of his for children (like ‘Karadi Tales etc). I would also like to mention his commentary in two audio albums one for film music i.e., ‘Fursat Ke Raat Din’ and one for Bhupen Hazarika’s song ‘Main Aur Mera Saaya’ which I like very much. Finally, I would like to mention his song for tele serial ‘Mirza Ghalib’ which is also one of my most favorite albums.

There are many things which one can write about him and his works in cinema and other than ‘cinema’. However, today we leave this for another day and straightway come to today’s song to celebrate Gulzar Saab’s birthday on the blog. (This song is lying with us since almost a decade now 😊).

This song is from the 1990 movie ‘Lekin’.

‘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. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.08.1990.

It had 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.

The story of this movie was written by Gulzar, who 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 has eight soundtracks as mentioned on the blurb of the audio cassette of this movie. Music is composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar. I like all songs of this movie very much and this is one of my most favorite albums. Today’s song is sung by Suresh Wadkar and on screen it is lip-synced by Vinod Khanna.

This movie is an interesting movie to watch, so nothing more about the movie here 😊

Let us listen to today’s song and enjoy Gulzar Saab’s poetry …

We wish Gulzar Saab a very happy birthday today and a happy, healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Over to the song now …

Song-Surmayee shaam is tarah aaye (Lekin)(1990) Singer-Suresh Wadkar, Lyrics-Gulzar, MD-Hridaynath Mangeshkar

Lyrics

surmayee shaam is tarah aaye ae ae ae
surmayee shaam is tarah aaye
saans lete hain jis tarah saaye ae
surmayee shaam is tarah aaye
saans lete hain jis tarah saaye ae
surmayee shaam

koi aahat nahin badan ki kahin
phir bhi lagta hai tu yahin hai kahin
koi aahat nahin badan ki kahin
phir bhi lagta hai tu yahin hai kahin
waqt jaata sunaayee deta hai
tera saaya dikhayee deta hai ae
jaise khushboo nazar se chhoo jaaye
jaise khushboo nazar se chhoo jaaye
saans lete hain jis tarah saaye
surmayee shaam

din ka jo bhi pahar guzarta hai
koi ehsaan sa utarta hai
din ka jo bhi pahar guzarta hai
koi ehsaan sa utarta hai
waqt ke paaon dekhta hoon main
roz yeh chhaaon dekhta hoon main
aaaye jaise koi khayaal aaye
aaye jaise koi khayaal aaye
saans lete hain jis tarah saaye ae
surmayee shaam is tarah aaye
saans lete hain jis tarah saaye
surmayee shaam

सुरमई शाम इस तरह आए
सुरमई शाम इस तरह आए
सांस लेते हैं जिस तरह साये
सुरमई शाम इस तरह आए
सांस लेते हैं जिस तरह साये
सुरमई शाम

कोई आहट नहीं बदन की कहीं
फिर भी लगता है तू यहीं है कहीं’
कोई आहट नहीं बदन की कहीं
फिर भी लगता है तू यहीं है कहीं’
वक़्त जाता सुनाई देता है
तेरा साया दिखाई देता है
जैसे खुशबू नज़र से छू जाये
सांस लेते हैं जिस तरह साये
सुरमई शाम

दिन का जो भी पहर गुज़रता है
कोई एहसान सा उतरता है
दिन का जो भी पहर गुज़रता है
कोई एहसान सा उतरता है
वक़्त के पाँव देखता हूँ मैं
रोज़ ये छांव देखता हूँ मैं
आए जैसे कोई खयाल आए
आए जैसे कोई खयाल आए
सांस लेते हैं जिस तरह साये
सुरमई शाम इस तरह आए
सांस लेते हैं जिस तरह साये
सुरमई शाम

Atul ji,

First of all, this is a production of GITANJALI CHITRADEEP, CALCUTTA.
The name of Hemant Kumar’s production house was GEETANJALI PICTURES, BOMBAY. So there is every possibility that this may be a home production, in some way or the other, of Biswajeet.
I remember having seen this film halfway, in the theatre, as it was very much boring.
Directed by Tarun Mujumdar, its cast was, Biswajeet, Sandhya Roy, Shashikala, Padma, Nirupa Roy, Kanhaiyalal, Anwar Hussain, Pahadi Sanyal, Prasanjit, Iftekhar, Asit Sen, Sabita Chatterjee etc.
The story, as I remember, was of a young man who is fond of wandering and sets out on an endless journey. The film depicts various experiences he encounters in his travels. He does not get attached to anybody but becomes a darling of many.
Neither the story, nor the music, nor the actors were of much interest and hence no wonder the film wandered aimlessly in search of success.
-AD
NB- There seems to be no record of any major award given to Rahgir. Maybe, Bengal Govt. or critics or journalists award may have been given to it.

The movie has ten songs and lyrics for all the ten songs are penned by Gulzar. The music is composed by Hemant Kumar. Here is the list of songs this movie has.

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.).
