Sixty-five years have passed since ‘Jhanak Jhanak Paayal Baaje’ (1955) -JJPB for short – was released. I had seen the film in a theatre in South Mumbai either in 1955 or 1956 (this film had run for nearly 2 years in a single theatre in Mumbai). But I had no recollection of much of the film. It was only after I watched some parts of the film on the video sharing platforms over a period of time, I could connect some scenes from the film I saw in my childhood. The film still evokes interest of the cinema lovers especially of those who relish the classical dance/music.

I am now in a better position the appreciate a bold and somewhat adventurous decision Shantaram took to produce and direct JJPB with the classical dance as a theme. If not handled properly, the theme could have turned the film into a documentary rather than a feature film. It was a high budget film in a technicolour extravaganza. Shantaram’s bold and daring decision to make JJPB has be admired in the backdrop of the following handicaps he faced:

(1) The successive failures at the box office of ‘Surang’ (1953) and ‘Subah Ka Taara’ (1954), both directed by V Shantaram had already put a financial strain on his banner, Rajkamal Kala Mandir. Under the circumstances, producing a film with a classical dance theme which Shantaram had never handled in the past, that too in technicolour was fraught with a huge financial risk.

(2) There were examples in the 1940s when Sagar Movietone made ‘Kumkum The Dancer’ (1940) and Wadia Movietone made ‘Court Dancer/Raj Nartaki’ (1941) with classical dance theme. The results were not encouraging. Both these films failed at the box office putting the financial strains on the respective banners. Eventually, Sagar Movietone had to be merged with National Studio and Wadia Movietone got split between Wadia Brothers and the Wadia Studio was sold to V Shantaram.

(3) It was a high budget film but the lead actors in the film were non-stars – a handicap for the box office collections. The lead actor, Gopi Krishna was just emerging as a choreographer in a couple of films while the lead actress, Sandhya had acted in two Hindi films prior to getting the lead role of a dancer in JJPB. Moreover, she was not a trained classical dancer like Vyjayantimala who had already became a star actor-dancer and had the capacity to attract the crowd in the theatres much higher than that of Sandhya.

Despite these handicaps, going ahead with JJPB showed the confidence level of Shantaram as a director and a master craftsman of the cinema medium. Probably, Shantaram may have felt that with his technicolour film, he was in a better postion to present the classical dance theme than what Sagar Movietone and Wadia Movietone had made in 1940-41. He put Sandhya under Gopikrishna for the intensive dance training for over a year which included training during the shooting of the film as well.

Shantaram was very successful in winning over the audience who had rejected his previous two films. He made the Indian classical dances visually appealing to the audience by presenting them in a hybrid choreography, coupled with the lavish settings. The visuals in Technicolour appealed to the audience. The film became Shantaram’s most successful films on the box office front. More than the commercial success of the film, it was personal satisfaction for Shantaram as a producer-director when JJPB won the National Award and the Filmfare Award for the Best Film for 1955.

Since JJPB was all about Indian classical dances, it was apparent that the songs need to be based on the Hindustani classical music. It is said that some well-wishers of Shantaram including Vasant Desai had suggested him to entrust the music direction of the film to Naushad who had emerged as a star music director in the classical genre after the phenomenal success of his songs in ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952). But Shantaram entrusted the music direction to Vasant Desai. It is interesting to note that after ‘Dahej’ (1950), as a music director, Vasant Desai was not associated with Shantaram’s subsequent films, ‘Parchhaain’ (1952), ‘Surang’ (1953), ‘Teen Batti Chaar Raasta’ (1953) and ‘Subah Ka Taara’ (1954).

In his zeal to prove the confidence reposed on him by his mentor, Vasant Desai travelled all over India to pick up the best musicians for his music team for JJPB. In Jammu, he picked up Shiv Kumar Sharma, an upcoming Santoor player who was still in his teen at that time. From Banaras, he picked up Pandit Samta Prasad, the renowned Tabla player. Ustad Abdul Halim Jaffer Khan of Indore played sitar for Vasant Desai. In JJPB, Santoor as a musical instrument was used for the first time which later became a part of many Hindi film songs and background music.

After almost all the songs had been recorded, Vasant Desai had composed the title song in raga ‘Darbari’ for which he persuaded Ustad Amir Khan to sing. Ustad Amir Khan arrived at the recording studio for the final rehearsal and recording. At the last moment, Vasant Desai felt that he should get consent of Shantaram before the recording. So, he invited him to the recording studio to listen to the final rehearsal. Upon listening to the rehearsal, Shantaram was unhappy. He called Vasant Desai to an adjoining room and advised him to cancel the recording and suggested to either change the tune or the singer or both. Somehow Vasant Desai, on some pretext, persuaded Ustad Amir Khan to come for the recording the next day.

A nervous Vasant Desai reached home and sat down quietly. He did not know what was wrong with the composition and could not sleep that night. Early morning, it dawned to him that all the dances in the film had very fast tempo and rhythm whereas his tune was in very slow tempo and so were the aalaaps. Vasant Desai composed the same song in Raga Adana in very fast tempo and aalaaps. He rehearsed the new tune with Ustad Amir Khan in the presence of Shantaram who was pleased with the new composition. [Source of this triva on title song -”Journal of SIRC”, Annual 2012].

I am presenting here the much talked about title song, ‘jhanak jhanak paayal baaje’ rendered by Ustad Amir Khan. The words are of Hasrat Jaipuri and the music composition is of Vasant Desai.

The title song became so popular that Ustad Amir Khan used to get ‘farmaish’ in his public concerts to sing the title song. Later, Ustad Amir Khan started singing a much-elongated version of this song (nearly 9 minutes) in his concerts and the gramophone record for the same was released. Ustad Amir Khan sang live the title song of the film on the occasion of the diamond jubilee (60th week) celebration of the film in the presence of the distinguished guests at the Liberty cinema in Mumbai.

Today (15 april 2021) is the 99th birth anniversary of Hasrat Jaipuri (15 April 1922 – 17 September 1999).

Hasrat Jaipuri penned over 1000 songs in Hindi movies from 1949 (“Barsaat”) till 2004 (Hatya: the murder ).

Majority of Hasrat Jaipuri songs were with Shankar Jaikishan. Most of them have already been covered in the blog. We need to look at movies of 1970s to come up with Hasrat Jaipuri songs penned for Shankar Jaikiszhan.

“Yaar Mera”(1971) one of the few movies that still offers us opportunity of discuss Hasrat Jaipuri songs composed by Shankar Jaikishan,

“Yaar Mera”(1971) was produced by Raja Ram and Satish Wagle and directed by Atmaram for RS Productions, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Rakhee, Nazima, Helen, Paintal, Achala Sachdev, Jayant, Sajjan, Randhir, Murad, Sulochana Sr., Nana Palsikar, Radheshyam, Narbada Shankar, Krishan Dhawan, Manmohan, Raj, Darshan, MS Mehta, Fordil, A Kumar, Ram Sindhi, Mona, Ashok Bhalla. etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past. This fourth song is sung by Rafi. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan,

The song is picturised as an eve teasing song where Jeetendra is seen making passes over Raakhi.

I have mentioned in the past that picturisation of such eve teasing songs followed a certain pattern. The lady would be seen taking serious exception throughout the song, only to relent during the penultimate line of the song. But things were seemingly becoming more liberal by 1971. Here Raakhi is seen responding to the advances of Jeetendra from the second stanza itself. Times they were a changing in HFM, as we can see from this picturisation. 🙂

Lyrics of the song were sent to my by Avinash Scrapwala.


Song-Haay kuchh aisi adaa se wo mera yaar chala (Yaar Mera)(1971) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

“CID Girl”(1959) was produced by P D Lamba and directed by Ravindra Dave for Shanti Niketan Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Geeta Bali, Balraj Sahni, Subbiraj, Kanhaiyalal, Patanjali, Ki=umud Tripathi, Helen, Visha Mehra, Mohan Choti, Pal Sharma, Kathana, Ravikant, Masood, Billoo, Shashi, Satpal, Sayyad, Rehana, Anari Begam, Chachajee, Ashani Kumar etc in it.

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

Here is the second song from “CID Girl”(1959) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Roshan in O P Nayyar style.

Only the audio of the song is available. From the sounds of it, the song appears to be a club dance song. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Total upto 1963 730 movies 2331 2742 1921 625 143 51

It can be seen from the table of 1964 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 133 songs in movies released in 1964. As many as 122 of these songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 46 movies of 1964 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 39 movies are alreday covered. So we only have 11 Lata songs belonging to 7 movies of 1964 that are not yet covered in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Baaghi”(1964). This stunt movie was directed by Ramdayal for Mukul Movies, Bombay. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Leela Naidu,Jagdeep, Mumtaz, Jeevan, Veena, Ulhas, Helen, Naaz, Vijaya Chaudhary etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it, including two Lata Mangeshkar solos. Two songs from the movie (including one Lata Mangeshkar solo) have been covered in the past.

Here is the second and final Lata Mangeshkar solo from “Baaghi”(1963). Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

This lesser known song is a rare song and only its audio seems to be available. From the sounds of it, it appears to be a mujra dance song or so. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song. The song is quite a hummable song to listen to


Song-Tujhe iski khabar kya (Baaghi)(1964) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

wo ghar mein aaye hamaare
khuda ki kudrat hai
kabhi hum unko
kabhi apne ghar ko dekhte hain

tujhe iski khabar kya
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tere aane pe kya beeti
tere jaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya

tumhaari ik hansi ne
kar diya zakhm e jigar gehra
tumhaari ik hansi ne
kar diya zakhm e jigar gehra
main apne hosh mein kab hoon
ajab kuchh haal hai mera
chaman kya jaan sakta hai
ki veeraane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya

na dekho berukhi se
ye haseen armaan kehte hain
na dekho berukhi se
ye haseen armaan kehte hain
navaajish hum pe kab hogi
jawaan toofaan kehte hain
bataaye kya ki is dil pe
sanam khaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya

tumhaari to adaa hogi
kisi ki jaan jaayegi
tumhaari to adaa hogi
kisi ki jaan jaayegi
pukaarega koi kitna
magar vaapas naa aayegi
sahegi rooh haal-e-dil
ki mar jaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya
tere deewaane pe kya guzri
tere aane pe kya beeti
tere jaane pe kya guzri
tujhe iski khabar kya

Today’s song is from the film Bambai ki Billi aka Wild Cat-1960.

This was a Stunt film, produced by Aspy Irani for his own banner – Super Pictures, Bombay. The film was directed by Zahoor Ahmed. The music was by Khayyam. He was assisted by Bipin and Mehboob. This Bipin was a part of Bipin-Babul duo, who gave music to 12 films together as a team. After leaving Khayyam, Bipin assisted Madan Mohan, where Babul was already an assistant. They joined hands and made a pair of Composers as Bipin-Babul.

Film Bambai ki Billi was an interesting film.This was actually the 3rd film with this title. The history of this film is very amusing..The first film was ‘ The Wild Cat of Bombay aka Bambai ki Billi’ – a Silent film made by Imperial films co. in 1927. Their famous actress-heroine Sulochana (Ruby Meyers) was the film’s Heroine and her Hero was one Jamshed. This film was directed by a novice Mohan Bhavnani, who became a big name in later years.

After Talkie films started, Imperial began Talkie remakes of their famous and popular Silent films and in 1936, Imperial made Bambai ki Billi aka Wild Cat of Bombay. The heroine was the same-Sulochana, but this time the Hero was different- Dinshaw Billimorea. Her earlier film Hero Jamshed was also in this film, but did a side supporting role. This time the film was directed by a veteran Nandlal Jaswantlal.(He became a famous director with films like Nagin and Anarkali in the 50s.). Nandlal had already done a Talkie remake of Indira, BA-a popular silent film as Imperial’s Indira MA. This was with Sulochana and D.Billimoria. Bambai ki Billi-36 was a social film,in which Sulochana had done 8 different roles. The roles were Policeman,Gardener, Gambler, Beggar, Hyderabadi gentleman, Banana Seller, a street urchin and an European Blonde girl. By the way, Sulochana is the only actress in Hindi film world, who acted in 4 remake films having same titles and doing the same roles in all films-silent and Talkie. Her films were Madhuri, Indira MA, Bambai ki Billi and Anarkali.

Besides the interesting history of this film title, the film also boasts of a Director, who was the only person in Hindi film industry who disappeared mysteriously – for ever. The name is Aspy Irani. Film was directed by Aspi Irani,who was basically famous for stunt and C grade films. Aspy Irani was an important director from the early films. His full name was ASPANDIAR HORMUSJI IRANI. He was born in the Parsi colony, Panch Gardens in Dadar, Bombay on 8-10-1911. He started work in the film industry after he completed his secondary schooling and as all Parsis are, due to his hard work, he soon attained a top rank in the Industry. He started directing films from 1936,the early Talkie stage, when the influence of Parsi Theatre, fantasies and dramas on folklore was the staple of stunt films. All such films had a basic structure and with a little changes here and there new films hit the screens.

There was a fixed audience for such films, but as the time went by, slowly the taste of the audience changed. However Aspi Irani continued with his style till the end. He did direct few social films also but the handling of social films had a clear stamp of Aspi’s direction.

He must have directed about 50-55 films till the early 80s. Some of his films were, Naya paisa, qaidi no.911,Barood,Shabnam,Badal etc. He was married to actress Husn Bano ( daughter of actress Shareefa).

On a fine morning on 23rd November 1986,Aspi left his home in the morning for work and never ever returned. No one knows what happened to him. Since then there was no trace of this man and officially he was declared ‘missing since 23-11-1986′. What an end to a legend !

The film cast was Kumkum, Sudhir, Mukri, Nazima, TunTun, Chanda Bai, Nazir Kashmiri, Ashalata etc. etc. The Hero of the film was Sudhir – who died about 7 years ago. He was a small time villain in many big films like Deewar etc. This was his First film as a hero.

Bhagwandas Mulchand Luthria (13-4-1931 to 12 May 2014) aka Sudhir was a Bollywood film actor. He was best known for his role in the film Satte Pe Satta with Amitabh Bachchan. He acted in 226 films in a career spanning from 1962 to 2009. He was one of Bollywood’s best known villains from the 1970s through the 1990s.

His first film was Taxi Driver-1954. One gets to see his name appear first time as a male lead in the 1960 Sheikh Mukhtar film ‘Baarood’. And then again in the same year, as the male lead in the film ‘Bambai Ki Billi’. Both films have Kumkum paired opposite to him. In 1961 came the somewhat more appreciated ‘Umar Qaid’, again a Sheikh Mukhtar film, in which Sudhir is paired opposite to a very young Nazima.

In an effort to break into the next level of films, maybe, Sudhir started to work in side roles. He acted in prem patra starring sadhna and shashi kapoor 1962 as Subhash.He appeared in Apna Ghar Apni Kahani (Pyas) opposite Mumtaz in 1968, singing “Jigar me dard kaisa ishko ulfat to nhi kahate” and ‘main ye sochkar uske dar se utha tha’ (Hakeekat), ‘mujhe raat din ye khayal hai’ and ‘mere dil pe andheri sa chhan laga’ from Ek Phool Ek Bhool’.

He often played the second-in-command sidekick to villains Ajit, Prem Nath and Pran, a torturous police inspector, or a sleazy man. He was most known for his shrill voice, long moustache and sideburns. He starred in at least a dozen Amitabh Bachchan movies, such as Deewaar, Kaalia, Majboor, Sharaabi, Satte Pe Satta, Dostana, Shaan and Lal Baadshah.

The 1969 film ‘Mahal’ brought Sudhir in touch with Dev Anand, and thence started an association that would last a lifetime. Starting with ‘Gambler’(1971), Sudhir has appeared in almost every Dev Anand film, whether produced by Navketan or by any other production banner.

Other notable appearances included Feroz Khan’s 1974 hit Khote Sikkay, its sequel Kachche Heere, Dharmatma, as well as Mera Gaon Mera Desh, and roles of a handicapped thief in Dev Anand’s Hare Rama Hare Krishna (1971), as police inspector (Special Appearances) in Subhash Ghai’s Meri Jung (1985) and in the Shah Rukh Khan-starring Baadshah (1999). His last film appearances were in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom (2007) and Victoria House (2009). He was also filmmaker Milan Luthria’s paternal uncle. He died on 12 May 2014 at the age of 70. He had long been suffering from a lung infection. (based on information from wiki and an article of Sudhir ji).

The film had only 7 songs. This was a major change in the HFM. Initially, people had a fascination for film songs and hence in the early cinema of the 30’s average number of songs used to be 15 to 20 songs. In the 40s the number came down to about 10 to 12 songs and in the 50’s the number was between 6 to 8 songs. All the 7 songs of this film were written by Hasarat Jaipuri. Two songs are already covered. this will be the third song today.

All the 7 songs were good. The film was a C grade film , but the Music Director was an A grade composer. Enjoy this Geeta Dutt solo song……

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 118 # (A tribute to Singer Krishna Kalle)
——————————————-————————————————————

‘Sapne Suhaane-1974’ was a ‘social movie’ directed by A.K. Chalukya for ‘Kalpit Chitra, Poona’. It had Kalpit, Soni, Sharma, Arvind, Shefali, Mohan Jery, Mohan Shery, Sundar, Firoza, Lakiram, Master Kalpit, and Padma Chavan (in guest appearance). This movie introduced Anil, Rawal, Suresh, Bina, Suryakant, Gaekwad and Lalsingh Chouhan.

‘Sapne Suhaane-1974’ had three songs. All ere written by Hasrat Jaipuri. Music was composed by Shamji Ghanshamji.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 05.11.1974.

One song from this movie was posted on the blog on 23.07.2013. Our inhouse encyclopedia Shri Arunkumar Deshmukh Sir provided the following information in comments section;

SAPNE SUHANE-1974 was truly an obscure movie.
It was produced by Kalpit Chitra Poona, directed by A.K. Chalukya and the music was by Shyam ji Ghanashyamji (One person-not a jodi), for the lyrics by Hasrat Jaipuri. There were only 3 songs in it.
The cast was full of newcomers (all probably debutants or one film actors), like Kalpit, Soni, Sharma, Arvind, Shefali, Firoza, Luckyram, Anil, Raval, Suresh Beena, Suryakant etc.
The story was of a Motor mechanic who dreams of becoming a film actor. He tells his beloved, who is working as a maid with a seth ji, that he will go to Bombay and return only after becoming an actor. Soon he realises the valley between Sapne suhane and the reality

Today we are presenting the second song from this movie which is sung by Krishna Kalle.

Krishna Kalle (18.12.1940 – 15.03.2015) was a known name in Kannada and Marathi Film Music, in addition to Hindi Film Music.

Let us now listen to today’s song …

Hello everyone,

I’m back here after another long absence.

And as usual, it is a very special anniversary that brings me back to writing here.

To be honest, I’m very much out of touch with writing nowadays. Can’t even remember when I last wrote anything more than 280 characters. So this post is going to be a struggle – but I still want to go through with it, because it is about someone who is very dear to me.

And not just to me, but to millions of music lovers around the world.

I’m talking about Rafisaab, of course.

Today is his birth anniversary – and I am sure there are many around the world who are remembering him very fondly today. On this day every day, there are also concerts held in various places to celebrate the occasion.

The mark that Rafisaab has left on the Hindi film industry cannot be described in words. The best way to probably understand his impact is to imagine the industry if he’d never been part of it.

It’s extremely hard to imagine it, isn’t it?
How much poorer would the world of music have been!

I often say the word “legend” is overused and abused nowadays. People who don’t have the required stature get loosely referred to as “legends”.

But when you use the same term for a person like Rafisaab, it suddenly feels the other way round. As if the word “legend” doesn’t have the required stature to be used for Rafisaab. 🙂

I’ve written a LOT of posts here on Rafisaab. More than on anyone else, I think. On his birth anniversary every year, death anniversary every year, on various milestone occasions.

I’ve written about his songs, his character, my own experiences listening to him – so yes, I’ve covered the entire gamut of Rafisaab content that I can think of.

And yet, I write not so much to add anything to anyone’s knowledge (most people know more than me anyway), as to offer my own tribute to the great man, in my own small way, on each of these occasions.

So where do I start?

Let me start with his songs.

Only the other day, a couple of weeks ago, I got into the mood to tweet some songs on Twitter. I do that occasionally – just for fun. I listen to a song on youtube, and then tweet it, sometimes with a hashtag #nowlistening.

It wasn’t meant to be a Rafisaab playlist at all – but that’s how it ended up. 🙂
Simple reason – once I start listening to Rafisaab songs, there’s no stopping the flow. So it ended up becoming one long Rafisaab session, which others also seemed to enjoy.

The songs kept flowing, starting with “yahaan badla wafaa ka” to “maine rakha hai mohabbat”, “mujhe dekh kar aapka muskuraana”, “jaag dil-e-deewaana”, “aaj puraani raahon se”, “husnwaale tera jawaab nahin”, “jaane kya dhoondhti rehti hain”, “tumhaari zulf ke”, “caravan guzar gaya”, “sukh ke sab saathi”, “maine shaayad tumhe”, “zara sun haseena-e-naazneen” and so many more.

Different moods – happy and sad.
Different genres – ghazals, bhajans, qawwalis, classical.

And that’s the thing with Rafisaab.
He had such mastery over every form of singing that he never came up short in any one form to disappoint you.
Not only did he have a divine voice, it was also his mastery over his field that set him apart. It was his humility that he often pointed upwards to God, suggesting it was all His doing. But it must have been a combination of a God-given voice, AND a huge amount of hard work. After all, he did riyaaz for hours daily.

Like millions of others, I too consider myself very fortunate to have been able to listen to Rafisaab songs. He was in a league of his own.

And yet, that’s not the only reason I have such a high regard for Rafisaab.
As we all know, Rafisaab was also an exceptionally good human being.
In fact, if there is ever an interview with anyone who knew Rafisaab, while there would obviously be mention of his singing, there would almost invariably be a mention of what an outstanding person he was.

And that’s because this is a rare quality, especially in an industry where artistes tend to get egoistic when they become successful and famous.

Rafisaab was an exception. For many years, he was the biggest name in male playback singing. He could easily have thrown his weight around. Kept people waiting. Demanded a higher fee. Dictated terms to composers who were queuing up to use him for their songs.

But he did none of this.

He was thoroughly professional – always respecting the role of the music director. Even if his stature was much greater than that of the MD.
In fact, after singing a song, he’d seek approval from the composer.
On the rare occasion when the composer wasn’t entirely happy and wanted another take, Rafisaab wouldn’t complain. He’d just comply – after all, the music director was the boss.

This attitude also explains why he didn’t seek higher compensation in the form a share of royalty. To him, he was a singer who had received a sum for rendering a song. Once he’d done that, he’d done his job. He didn’t seek more reward than that. Right or wrong, that was his mindset.

There are many stories about Rafisaab that illustrate what a good human being he was.

How he wouldn’t charge money (except a token one rupee) from struggling music directors.

How he’d donate money to help needy families, even without their knowledge who the benefactor was.

For all his stature and fame, Rafisaab was a remarkably humble person. And not just fake humility, but genuinely so.

When you put all this together, you can only marvel at the person he was.
So brilliant at his field, and yet such a remarkably good human being.

This is why he is SO loved by millions.
Obviously his songs are what first attract him to people, but when they know more about the person, their love and admiration goes to a completely different level.

This is also why, though I haven’t written in ages, I chose to write a post for him today. It’s the least I can do.

Now onto the song for today.

It’s from Bombay Talkie (1970).

I remember hearing about this film as a kid, though I saw it for the first time only a few years ago. The song “typewriter tip tip tip tip” was quite popular, from what I remember.

Such is my memory nowadays that I’ve already forgotten the storyline of the film, though I saw it only a few years ago. But I don’t think it was like the usual Hindi film of the time, seeing as it’s a Merchant-Ivory production. Their movies always had a different feel to them.

The film stars Shashi Kapoor and Jennifer Kendal (his wife in real life).
Should be fun to watch them together.

I think I might just do that – try to watch this film again.
The one advantage of having a poor memory is that you can keep watching the same film again, and each time it feels like the first time. 🙂

The song for today is “tum mere pyaar ki duniya”.

A lively song from Rafisaab, and I daresay, a song quite typical of the time.

Lyrics for this were given to me by Avinashji.
This now seems to be the pattern of my posts here.
Post written by me, lyrics by Avinashji. 🙂
The only difference between this and other posts is that usually Avinashji sends me lyrics, and requests me to write a post. This time I decided to write a post on Rafisaab, and then requested Avinashji to pick a suitable song.
I wanted a happy song, because the occasion is Rafisaab’s birth anniversary – a happy event. 🙂
As always, Avinashji promptly obliged.

I request you to please listen to this happy and lively song, and remember what joy Rafisaab has given us.

Am sure I speak for millions of music lovers when I say that he will always have a very special place in our hearts.

Song-Tum mere pyaar ki duniya mein basi ho jabse (Bombay Talkie)(1971) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
zarre zarre mein
mujhe pyaar nazar aataa hai
meri har saans mein aati hai
tumhaari khushboo
saaraa aalam mujhe
gulzaar nazar aataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
zarre zarre mein
mujhe pyaar nazar aataa hai
meri har saans mein aati hai
tumhaari khushboo
saaraa aalam mujhe
gulzaar nazar aataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jabse

aisaa lagtaa hai ke
hariyaale ghaney pedon mein
tum bhi maujood ho
patton mein chhupi baithhi ho
shaakh hilti hai kisi naazneen
baahon ki tarah
aur gumaan hotaa hai
tum jaise yahin rehti ho
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
zarre zarre mein
mujhe pyaar nazar aataa hai
meri har saans mein aati hai
tumhaari khushboo
saaraa aalam mujhe
gulzaar nazar aataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jabse ae

jab guzartaa hai
mere jism ko baadal chhoo kar
phir koi reshmi aanchal mujhe
yaad aataa hai
main to har cheez mein paataa hoon
tumhaaraa chehra
ishq kya kya mujhe
parchhaayiyaan dikhlaataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
zarre zarre mein
mujhe pyaar nazar aataa hai
meri har saans mein aati hai
tumhaari khushboo
saaraa aalam mujhe
gulzaar nazar aataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se ae

dhoop aur chhaaon ke manzar bhi
ajab manzar hain
jab nazar milti hai
sau teer chalaa dete hain
aur phoolon ke chhalaktey se katore hardam
bin piye hi mujhe
mastaana banaa dete hain
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
zarre zarre mein
mujhe pyaar nazar aataa hai
meri har saans mein aati hai
tumhaari khushboo
saaraa aalam mujhe
gulzaar nazar aataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se ae

तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
ज़र्रे ज़र्रे में मुझे प्यार नज़र आता है
मेरी हर सांस में आती है
तुम्हारी खुशबू
सारा आलम मुझे
गुलज़ार नज़र आता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
ज़र्रे ज़र्रे में मुझे प्यार नज़र आता है
मेरी हर सांस में आती है
तुम्हारी खुशबू
सारा आलम मुझे
गुलज़ार नज़र आता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे

ऐसा लगता है के
हरियाले घने पेड़ों में
तुम भी मौजूद हो
पत्तों में छुपी बैठी हो
शाख हिलती है किसी नाज़नीं
बाहों की तरह
और गुमाँ होता है
तुम जैसे यहीं रहती हो
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
ज़र्रे ज़र्रे में मुझे प्यार नज़र आता है
मेरी हर सांस में आती है
तुम्हारी खुशबू
सारा आलम मुझे
गुलज़ार नज़र आता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे ए

जब गुज़रता है
मेरे जिस्म को बादल छू कर
फिर कोई रेशमी आँचल मुझे
याद आता है
मैं तो हर चीज़ में पाता हूँ
तुम्हारा चेहरा
इश्क क्या क्या मुझे
परछाईयाँ दिखलाता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
ज़र्रे ज़र्रे में मुझे प्यार नज़र आता है
मेरी हर सांस में आती है
तुम्हारी खुशबू
सारा आलम मुझे
गुलज़ार नज़र आता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे ए

धूप और छाओं के मंज़र भी
अजब मंज़र हैं
जब नज़र मिलती है
सौ तीर चला देतें हैं
और फूलों के छलकते से कटोरे हरदम
बिन पिए ही मुझे
मस्ताना बना देते है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
ज़र्रे ज़र्रे में मुझे प्यार नज़र आता है
मेरी हर सांस में आती है
तुम्हारी खुशबू
सारा आलम मुझे
गुलज़ार नज़र आता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे ए

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 116 #
——————————————

Regulars on the blog must have noticed that nowadays I ’am focusing on ‘one-song movie’ viz movies that are represented in the blog by just one song.
When I took this mission I mainly wanted to focus on movies from the ‘Melodious Decade’ or ‘the golden era’ years i.e. 1951-1960, and I will continue with it in the future as well.

However, the song I am going to present today is not from a movie of fifties (1951-1960), but it is from one of the movies of ‘seventies. This movie made its debut in the blog twelve years ago in 2008. After that there has been no activity in the blog as far as this movie is concerned.

When we come across such cases, we have to thank the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ started by Atul ji in 2019. At least some ‘un ‘Yippeeee’ed’ movies are now getting noticed as a result. Ten Year Challenge unearthed some movies that were left with just one song in the blog and their second song got covered exactly ten year later as part of ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ (or ‘BTYC’).

This also gave me the idea that we should check movies that were left with only one song for the longest period and we should work out their statistics viz what is the record longest period for such instances where a movie waited for its second song on the blog. 😊

Coming back to the today’s movie now, today’s song is from ‘Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam-1974’.

‘Mera Vachan Geeta Ki Qasam’ was directed by Vinod Kumar for ‘M.M.R. Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Vinod Kumar and A. Nairang. (This movie is dedicated to the memory of Vinod Kumar, who I guess passed away either during production or post production of this movie). It had Saira Banu, Sanjay (Sanjay Khan), Ajit, Johny Walker, Nazima and Om Prakash, co-starring with K.N. Singh, Jagirdar, Tiwari, Ram Mohan, Haridas Shukla, S.N. Tripathi, Tun Tun, Shamim, Indira, Baby Shanoo, Major Anand, Raj Deepak, Mona, Monaliza, Geeta Kapoor, Qamar Sarhadi, Ramlal, Aziz, Kamal.

The movie introduced Qaim Raaj. And Madan Puri make a friendly appearance in the movie. Also, Laxmi Chhaya and Jankidas make special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Vinod Kumar who screenplay and dialogues of this movie and was the director of this movie. Prabhakar Supare was the editor of this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.07.1974.
(But I am not sure if it was released then or later, because many sources mentioned 1977 as the year of this movie).

This movie has five songs – all sung by – Asha Bhonsle. Hasrat Jaipuri penned all the five songs and Shankar-Jaikishan composed the music for this movie.

Song Posted On
O doongi, ye dil tujhe doongi … balamwa mera hi hoga
Achchha lagta hai ye bholaa bhaalaa sanwariyaa Being covered in this post
Pyar kiya nahin jataa ho jaata hai 07.12.2008
Tanik kankari pad jaaye … manmohan se preet badhaayi
Saath kali ka ghaaghro … mora resham ka ghaaghraa nazaaraa maare re

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Saira Banu is lip-syncing and performing it on the screen while Sanjay Khan and many others can see watching this ‘nautanki’ type song in a village set-up…

I have not watched this movie and I think this movie must have been a forgotten one. I would request knowledgeable readers, who have watched this movie, to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to today’s song . It is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan and written by Hasrat Jaipuri. Asha Bhonsle is the singer of this song …
