06 Bansi Waale Ne Gher Lai Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar
07 Tera Allah Beli Manoj Kumar Mahendra Kapoor, chorus

So far as I remember this movie didn’t perform well at the box office then and even forgotten also. But this movie had some good songs, or in fact, all songs in this movie are good songs to listen. Music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Though I had not watched this movie then in 1989-90. I am not sure if it was released at all in theatres. I do not remember correctly now. I watched some part of it online in 2018. However, one song from this movie “Yoon Lagne Lagi Aajkal Zindagaani” was in my memory since long. And later one of my friends who also liked this song refreshed its memory. So, when I came into the contact with this blog, I shared this song and later represented it with a post here. Subsequently I listened to all the songs in this movie and liked them very much as they have a nice poetry content in them. I have all of them ready and noted with men since long. Another song from this movie “Aaj Main Bechain Hoon” was posted on the blog on 09.01.2022.

As mentioned above lyrics for as many as six songs in this movie were written by Santosh Anand. Today 5th March, 2022 is the birth anniversary of Santosh Anand (born on 5th March, 1940, some sources have mentioned the year of his birth wrongly as 1929 or 1939?).

Santosh Anand has written some of the memorable songs in Hindi Films. And he went on to receive appreciation as well as awards. However, in personal life destiny has not been so kind with him as he lost his son and daughter in law, and later due to bad economic condition he has to suffer a lot. Old age ailments and his deteriorating health condition have made his life difficult further. And that is how it happens with many around us, but life goes on …

Today I present the third song from this movie, which is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and on screen Rakhee is lip-syncing and performing his song. We can also see Manoj Kumar, Hema Malini, Prem Chopra, and others in the picturization of this song. From the picturization of the song we can guess that Manoj Kumar and Rakhee are working at a construction site. The picturization is typical for a Manoj Kumar movie where the characters are going through lot of emotions.

When I had first shared this song to Atul ji, I had mentioned the following

THIS IS FOR THE RAKHEE fans, because I think even, they have forgotten this movie or the movie itself is a forgotten movie,

(Because on AVA ji’s post on Rakhi’s birthday – “Jab Tum Ho Mere Humsafar Khoobsurat” none of the commentors mentioned about this movie)

The song is a typical ‘Manoj Kumar’ type movie song. After ‘ROTI KAPADA Aur MAKAAN’ he tried to recreate that magic in every movie but failed. (and still luckily got ‘TWO’ women loving him in every movie),

Let us now listen to the song which is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal and the tune is a catchy one and the music is quite enjoyable and so are the lyrics by Santosh Anand.

Blog Day :

4973 Post No. : 16849

2022 is marching and we are into March.

There are many actresses who have graced the silver screen eversince the moving images have held the fantasy of audiences. Some of these ladies began their on-screen life as ‘heroines’, a term used to denote the main female protagonist or the romantic interest of the main male in the story that the movie is depicting. That means the actress will be playing Seetha to a Ram, Parvati to her Mahadev, Radha to her Kanhaiya etc. if the movie was a mythological. If the movie was historical then a Rani Padmini, Rani Lakshmibai etc would be the main protagonist and the lady playing these characters would be called the heroine of the movie. The other ladies gracing the movie- playing Sakhi (friend), Maa, Didi, Bhabhi or Manthara, Kaikeyi, or a nautch girl- would be called supporting actress. No story (whether in movies or novels or real-life) is complete without supporting characters.

I know, there is no need for me to explain these terms -supporting cast, hero, heroine etc.- to regular movie buffs. But the person who is celebrating her 80th birthday today is one who was the first heroine of Rajesh Khanna- the superstar of the 70s.

She was born in Allahabad on 1st March 1942 to Dr. Jitendra Mukherjee and a homemaker mother- Kamini Devi. She was one of seven children i.e. she had four sisters and two brothers. (Allahabad also gave us a superstar. But more about that later).

We are talking of Indrani Mukherjee who made her debut in Bimal Roy Productions “Usne Kaha Tha” (for which she was given the Filmfare Best Supporting Actress) in 1960 which was followed by ‘Dharmputra’, ‘Grahasti’, ‘Haqeeqat’ which were the more notable initial films of this dainty Bengali beauty. In between she appeared as Dharmendra’s wife in ‘Shaadi’ which was a movie with Manoj Kumar as main lead. She was also seen in Manoj Kumar’s ‘Shaheed’ in 1965. That means she was decently active in the 60s and “Aakhri Khat” by Chetan Anand saw her play Rajesh Khanna’s love interest. We also saw her in a song where Sanjeev Kumar wooed her singing ‘tumhaari zulf ke saaye mein shaam kar doonga’.

Of course, I have not seen any of the films or songs that I have mentioned here other than possibly the song from ‘Grahasti’ when it appeared on Doordarshan ages back. Recently I discovered that the song “paayal ki jhankaar raste raste” has her dancing and decently too.

Possibly the first time I saw her on-screen was in Manmohan Desai’s “Chacha Bhatija” and “Parvarish” both in 1977. In one she played Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna’s mother and in the other she played Dharmendra’s bhabhi and mother to Randhir Kapoor.

I also remember her as Maharani Meenakshi in Desai’s “Dharam Veer” (1977) where she falls in love with a brave hunter, thinking him to be dead marries the crown-prince of some XYZ kingdom, gives birth to twins who are separated at birth etc. Indrani Mukherjee had a sizable screen time in this movie too where Jeetendra and Dharmendra played her sons.

Here I would like to point out that these actors, barring Dharmendra, were all in the same age bracket as Indrani and this is something that I have always had a problem with. Actors never age and the lady who once played his love-interest plays his mother, bhabhi etc a supporting character, I mean ladies get to play young characters for a shorter period as compared to gents. But that is not the point of this post. This post is meant to wish a healthy and happy 80th birthday to Indrani Mukherjee.

Let us have a song from “Chacha Bhatija”. It is a song and dance situation where we see Hema Malini playing a kind of ‘ojha’. Randhir Kapoor and Dharmendra (in disguise of course) have brought Sonia Sahni to the ‘ojha’ to get the spirit, of a supposedly dead Indrani Mukherjee, to leave her. We can also see the “permanently drunk” Keshto Mukherjee recording the proceedings, specially assigned to record Sonia’s confession. All in all a very entertaining song. And where does it come from?

From a Manmohan Desai movie of course, which was meant to relax the audience. His movies were the type where logic was conspicuous by its absence, the movies were fast-paced giving the viewer little time to think “what is happening!!!” The absence of logic is realized only on repeat viewing of these films. And all of Desai’s films have repeat value and are entertaining to the generations that were not even born back then.

Incidentally 1st March also happens to be Manmohan Desai’s anniversary, it is 28 years since his passing, he had just celebrated his 57th birthday.

Today’s song is by the team of Anand Bakshi-Laxmikant-Pyarelal-Asha Bhonsle. (I am not sure if it is the voice of any male singer for the words uttered by the two heroes)

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 10
———————————————————

73rd Republic Day of India

ek hai apni zameen
ek hai apna gagan
ek hai apna jahaan
ek hai apna watan
apne sabhi sukh ek hain
apne sabhi gham ek hain
aawaaz do
aawaaz do ham ek hain
ham ek hain

“What is it that I want? The same as you, the same as everyone else. I want to be physically safe and healthy, financially secure and personally happy. I want the same confidence in my abilities, in my environment and social acceptance. I have the same worries and aspirations for future. Same apprehensions if the children will turn out well and have good careers or not.”
This is me, in conversation with a dear friend and a long-time colleague. This conversation happened some 15-16 years ago. Actually, we were on the same page in the topic, she was not coming from any opposite direction at all. But she was the one clear on the causes of a problem, I was the one confused.
But things are a lot clearer to me now, exactly what I wanted to explain at that time is more obvious now.

apne sabhi sukh ek hain
apne sabhi gham ek hain

The causes of happiness for the common man are the same everywhere, whatever is the religion, caste, race, region, language, state or country they are allied to. The aspirations are same and the apprehension and causes of sadness are also the same essentially. This is the way a social environment develops, where people go and join hands with each other in times of happiness and sadness.

Today the country is celebrating 73rd Republic Day.

The constitution gives us the right to live with dignity. What is a person’s dignity? it is not just the pride in its citizenship, its values and its integrity. A person’s dignity is the self-belief that I have done nothing wrong and don’t mean any harm to anyone. And a feeling of security, that me, my life, my livelihood and my family is safe. A sense of belonging that makes us feel responsible for the safety and security of fellow citizens and has assurance of reciprocation. Also, that I deserve all that I command. Personally, socially and professionally.

As a citizen it is a right to demand and acquire good education, an adequate health facility, a great judicial system and better law enforcement agencies, plus a media which gives us information, that really mattered. Real information, on what has been done to give the above rights to the citizens.

With the slow and gradual increase of opportunities in education and personal growth, the inequalities have also increased. A success story in monetary terms and career, is just not enough. It is also important to have balanced and broad-minded success stories. Rationality and seeing an issue in a truly international perspective are what will make a successful person intellectually empowered.

At the ripe old age of 75, we should have been a mature people.
Do we see enough, do we care enough?
Do we bother to call out the misbehaviour, of miscreants we see on the streets? Are we bold to speak out against injustice?
Are we smart enough to sift through the crap fed to us day in and day out in the guise of news and entertainment?
Do we bother to check the authenticity of WhatsApp forwards before sharing with other people?
Do we even care that our ‘can’t care less’ attitude is destroying the centuries old social fabric of our society and stripping us of our identity as a people, the whole world, looked at with respect?

Munshi Premchand said “Communalism, whenever it raises its head, it comes within a cloak. Because it is ashamed of coming alone or walking alone. “
Yes, at the age of 75, we are a nation of most young people in the world. Being second largest population in the world, with an average age of 28 years, the figures of young people and children are just hugest in the world. If these young people are a part of work force and aspire for personal growth and are able to collectively individually, contribute to the nation building, what can be built and achieved is mind boggling.
But are we looking at what the young population of this country is aspiring to be?
What is the ambition of an average Indian youngster?
what are their hopes?
What are their priorities?

It is very important to channelise the energies and ambitions of youth towards personal and professional excellence. There is enough talent, brains and hands in this country to make it an economic force. But for that we have to rise above the politics of religion, caste, us and they, region etc.

There was a story of cats and a monkey, we used to hear and read as children. Lately I have not seen it repeated anywhere. So here is the story for refreshing the memory of readers:

Two cats are fighting for a roti. The monkey comes and tells them to stop fighting and make two equal pieces of the roti. The cats agree and make two parts. The monkey tells them the two parts are not equal, one is larger and the other is smaller. He advises the cat holding the larger piece, to break a small part and give it to him, so both the cats have equal portions. The result is again the same, the parts of the roti the cats have are still not equal. So, the other cat is asked to break a small piece and give it to the monkey, to establish the equality. So on and so forth the dispute continues, till the whole roti is finished, while the cats remain empty handed in the end.

Similar is the case of inequality in opportunities in our set up. In the name of equalising those opportunities, the opportunists among us are gobbling up the parts and parcel. Keeping the marginalised sections divided and fighting imaginary/perceptive fights with each other. It is not a true cut and dried, there are multiple layers to these differences, perceptions of not getting a fair share of the ‘roti’. The majority/minorities tussle is but one layer of it and the cloak which Munish Premchand referred to. The real divide here is still the have’s and have nots. Then there is a gender divide, which is inherent and keeps getting uglier.

Where does all this leave the common man, with its apprehensions and aspirations? With their same dukh and sukh, I spoke about in the first para.
“I have the same worries and aspirations for future. Same apprehensions if the children will turn out well and have good careers or not.”

It is true, that once I had children, all my self-interests and care less impulsiveness gave way to worries of the future. Not the least of which was the worry for their safety, physical, emotional and psychological. Major part of their time was spent outside the home, in school and in the creche. How the things that they imbibe from the social atmosphere will affect their character, their thought processes and their choices and priorities? This was a cause of worry for me.

Yes, these ills in society are stemming for this one vice, i. e. selfishness. A few days ago, I had a big discussion with my son, regarding the self-interest of sections of society, and the marginalised sections of the society, who are still outside a certain margin. This margin is not unbreachable. We can see it breached in some developed states in the country. In most parts of the country, the focus of the populace is on the personal growth, better life quality and the common interests of the common man.

My son, interestingly was coming from the other direction in the discussion. I have managed to make an inroad in the way, he looks at opportunities for himself and for others, his fellow countrymen, who have the talent, ability and deserve to take their rightful place in the progress and development of the country, I hope, because he has not come to me with any counter-arguments on the topic :-).

This is my quest to make a balanced, truly intellectual success story out of my children. There is no ‘ism’ in this thought process, just a bit of logic and unselfishness. The conscious unwillingness to get embroiled in a conflict of interests which is a matter of perception. This really is a distraction, which our youth do not need.

The problems and issues in our country are centric and specific to our country. These have to be looked at with a prism of our own, not look for solutions to it, from examples of other nations and other societies.

I will move on to the song post.

The song is an iconic song from the 1981 film “Kranti’. The punch line, or the concluding line of the song is

Mera chana hai apni marzi kaa
Marzi ka bhai marzi ka
Yeh dushman hai khudgarzi kaa
Khudgarzi ka khudgarzi kaa

“mera chana’ can be interpreted as ‘my passion’ or ‘my goal’, which really is to treat ‘khudgarzi’ i.e. selfishness as the enemy.

The song is iconic, as it has three legends of hindi film music singing it with the son of another legend. Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar are singing for Dilip Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha and Hema Malini, whereas Nitin Mukesh is giving playback to Manoj Kumar in the song, which is written by Santosh Anand and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

I used to hear the ‘sponsored programme’ of this film on Vividh bharati, I have seen the movie also long back. But I only recalled that Rafi Sahab is singing just one line for Dilip Kumar in this song. But now that I have seen and heard the song multiple times, the lines Rafi sahab is singing towards the end of the song, are definitely very significant and elevate the whole song to another level. The composition and orchestration have been kept very simple and basic by Laxmikant-pyarelal, so this is not a crowded song, with all these greats singing their parts, independently and together, with male and female chorus to add to the group.

This is the only song of these four singers. For Rafi sahab’s series, this must be the last such song remaining to be posted in the blog where Rafi sahab and Kishore Kumar are singing together, with or without Lata Mangeshkar and Nitin Mukesh. For Rafi-Lata duets, there are a few songs, at least one of them I plan to include in the series. So, this post takes care of Rafi sahab’s association with Kishore kumar, Nitin Mukesh and Santosh Anand.

Let us go to the song, and listen to the rendition which is a real ‘hair raising’ experience.

Today’s song is from the film ‘The Burning Train -1980’.

‘The Burning Train -1980’ was the 275th movie to be introduced on the blog on the 143rd day of the blog (on 8 december 2008) . Today the number of movies launched on the blog has reached 4562 on 12 January 2022. These numbers give us some idea of the long journey of the movie ‘The Burning Train” on the blog. 😊

The first song from this movie was posted on 08.12.2008. Today, 4784 days later(on 12.01.2022) we are posting the final song from this movie. So, “The Burning Train-1980” finally arrives at its destination YIPPEE station on the blog today. It becomes the 1304th movie to get YIPPEED in the blog.

“The Burning Train-1980” was one of the most ambitious movies from the Chopras’ (B.R. Chopra Films). It had a long list of star-artists performing in it.
I vaguely remember to have watched this movie with my parents when I was a child. Later, as I grew, I kept reading about this movie and kept listening to its songs as I liked them all. I think this movie should be ‘one of the most discussed or hyped but less successful commercially movie ’ of its time.

I loved to watch this movie whenever it was played on Cable TV or TV channels. It must have been liked by many like me and may be many in the new generations in eighties, nineties and more. This movie has good songs written by Sahir and composed by R.D. Burman. Especially its qawwali ‘pal do pal ka saath hamaara’ is liked even today.

‘The Burning Train -1980’ was directed by Ravi Chopra for B.R. Films, Bombay. It was produced by B.R. Chopra. Ravi Chopra also wrote the story of this movie.

It had Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Vinod Khanna, Parveen Babi, Neetu Singh, Danny, Vinod Mehra, Jeetendra, Navin Nischol, Simi, Asha Sachdev, Padmini Kapila, Romesh Sharma, Payal, Asrani, Ranjeet, Iftekhar, Om Shivpuri, Sujit Kumar, Nana Palsikar, Rajendra Nath, Mukri, Keshto Mukherji, Padma Khanna, Komila Virk, Nazir Hussain, Indrani Mukherji, Paintal, Dinesh Thakur, Yunus Parvez, Shammi, Ravindra Kapoor, T.P. Jain, Jankidas, Jagdish Raj, Gufi, Sudha Shivpuri, M. Rajan, Uma Dhawan, Mac Mohan, Anand Balraj, Prem Bedi, Master Bittoo, Baby Khushboo, Junior Danny, Master Romy, Master Salim and others.

Madan Puri, Chandrashekhar, Satyen Kappu and Urmila Bhatt make a guest appearance in this movie.
Its screenplay and dialogues were written by Kamleshwar ji. Pran Mehra was the chief editor for this movie and S.B. Mane and R.P. Bapat assisted him. This movie was passed by Censor Board 20.03.1980.

This movie had six songs penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by R.D. Burman. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Mohd Rafi, Padmini Kolhapure and Sushma Shreshtha and Usha Mangeshkar gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

So far, five songs from this movie have been posted on the blog earlier. Here are the details of all the six songs of this movie.

Blog Day :

4923 Post No. : 16757

Today 9th January’2022 is eighty-eighth birth anniversary of singer Mahendra Kapoor.

He was born on 9th January’1934 and passed away on 27th September’2008.

We remember him on this occasion and pay our tributes by listening to a song sung by him here on this blog. I am a big fan, if not a great fan, of Mahendra Kapoor songs.
These include patriotic songs and songs from other genres too.

After getting associated with this blog I have tried to bring many of his songs which so far are not posted on the blog.

Today’s song is one such song which I have noted long time back or almost nine years back.

This song is from the movie ‘Santosh-1989’.

One song from this movie has already been posted on the blog.

‘Santosh-1989’ was an ‘East-n-West Movies’ presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan.
Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. It had Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar, and others.

Story of ‘Santosh-1989’ was written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by V.V. Kamat (assisted by Ashok Naik).
Cinematography was done by Radian Kinagi.

This movie had six songs. Lyrics for the songs of this movie were written by Santosh Anand (five songs) and Manoj Kumar (one song). Music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

It was passed by Censor board on 28.02.1989.

A brief about this movie has been taken from IMDB and reproduced here below.

Cold-hearted and manipulative Kamla has fallen in love with a poor man and marries him and has a child named Santosh. She soon realizes that life is not fun living in poverty, and abandons her child and husband, and returns back to her father and his wealth. She re-marries millionaire Kailashpathi, and has a child named Kundan from him. Years pass by, Kundan and Santosh have both grown up. Kundan is the owner of the mill with his mom, while Santosh is a struggling mill worker, and a union worker. A confrontation ensues between the mill and the workers, and Kamla is able to negotiate a settlement and get the workers back to work but fails to keep the promise. Santosh opposes this, and she sets her goons and Kundan against him. Santosh is abducted and held prisoner by Kamla and Kundan, and the only way he can be released is when he compromises with them.

Today’s song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. It is lip-synced by Manoj Kumar. Also seen in the picturization of this song is Herma Malini.

Lyrics are by Santosh Anand and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Listening to today’s song may remind some, the well song ‘aur nahin bas aur nahin, gham ke pyaale aur nahin’ from ‘Roti, Kapada Aur Makaan-1974’. I like this song and today’ song very much.

Let us now listen to today’s song which is written by Santosh Anand and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Enjoy!!!

Hullo Atuldom

My family and some members of this world of Atulsongaday, which I like to refer to as Atuldom, know my love for a few actors from the Hindi Film World. Specially the actors who graced the silver screen in the 70s, 80s and early 90s. Many of the actors of that period are in the 60 to 75/80+ age group. Actors Amitabh Bachchan, Jeetendra, Rekha, Hema Malini, Zeenat Aman, Jaya Bhaduri, Dharmendra, some actors played character roles in that period etc. when they make an appearance on reality television I make it a point to see those episodes and on repeat if possible.

Kaun Banega Crorepati had one such episode on 15th October 2021. It was advertised as ‘Sholay Reunion Special’ (if I got the title right). It was like a reunion of school friends. Hema Malini and Ramesh Sippy were the guests who played the game for some charity. It was cute to see Hemaji and AB Sr. mouthing lines of all the characters – Gabbar Singh, Angrezon ke zamaane ka jailor, Veeru, Jai – whose pictures were flashed on the big screen. Hema Malini did the Jailor’s typical laugh and also “basanti inn kutton ke saamne matt nachna” and I was all eyes and ears. Imagine how soothing it must have been to see a sooper pretty lady, with her typical manner of speech, giving answers to the questions. Here I would like to mention that the questions were ‘made to order’ to enable Ramesh Sippy and Hemaji earn 25l to fund their charities. There were two highlights in the show; one was when Veeru joined the show over video call.
The other and more appropriate (IMO) part of the show was when they brought Reshma Pathan on the show. This is the lady who has played a body double for all the stunts that heroines were shown to be carrying out in the movies of the 70s and 80s. Hemaji and Rameshji showered their praises on this lady for helping out with the stunts in Sholay. They specially mentioned the action scene, after the Holi song, where a child is shown crying near the ‘merry-go-round’ and a lady comes running to rescue the child.

Towards the final section of the program they wished (in advance) The Beautiful Hema Malini for her birthday. I had also thought up a few possible songs to go with this post. Then I happened to see a comment on the blog, by Manohar Lal Dave, who had reminded that 15th October was the birth anniversary of Shankar of the Shankar-Jaikishan duo.

We will enjoy this song from “Sanyasi” (1975) of which the blog has five songs. This is the sixth written by Varma Malik and tuned S-J and it is sung by Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar.

Wishing the Ever-so- gorgeous, beautiful, elegant DreamGirl on her birthday with this song.

Hullo Atuldom

Another date of October for which I always need to write out a post for.

It being the birth date of an actor whose work I began liking post 1975- “Sholay” to be exact. I liked the way he delivered his dialogues. Some dramatic dialogues which he had casually uttered are iconic and classic and stuff which fans quote as legendary.

Remember ‘mere paas maa hai’ it was not said forcefully or with banging of fists or any such heavy add-ons. He was also given dialogues which were comic in nature -for example the cricket commentary in English that has made “Namak Halal” a movie worth watching; he even managed to squeeze in some comedy intto the fight sequence in the climax of the movie. But I always loved the late night scene in Asrani’s office when Amitabh Bachchan calls Asrani and Dharmendra for a meeting to discus the situation between Vasudha and himself. I know I need not mention that I am talking of the Hrishikesh Mukherjee ’70s classic “Chupke Chupke” and the expression that he had when he said “for safety’s sake main woh bhi batadoonga”- priceless. He was so nice at depicting his emotions and I may have mentioned this a few times in earlier posts about how the scene between Sanjeev Kumar and AB Sr. in “Khuddar” was memorable as both the actors spoke with their eyes. An added advantage the film industry had when working with AB Sr. was he was good in action sequences too and is known to have enacted many of them without using a body-double or ‘stuntman’ (in filmy parlance). He managed to overcome his awkwardness where dance (a necessity in Indian movies) was concerned. He has also tried his hand at singing for his characters; for which initially, he was made-fun-of as he was considered to be a tuneless singer but he has sung and many of them have been very popular with his fans.

Today’s post which celebrates this all-time favorite actor of mine turning a year older or a step closer to 80 has a song from the 2003 (can’t believe this film was 18 years back, time has just flown) B R films production and Ravi Chopra directed “Baghban”. It had music by Aadesh Srivastava and Uttam Singh and songs were penned by Sameer. Alka Yagnik, Hema Sardesai, Richa Sharma, Sneha Pant, Udit Narayan, Aadesh Srivastava, Sudesh Bhonsle and Amitabh Bachchan were the playback singers used.

This song is pictured with an emotional Raj Malhotra (AB Sr.) singing, and yearning for his wife Pooja (Hema Malini) who is staying with one of their sons and he himself with another son. The story of ‘Baghban’ was something which was popular in the 60s and early 70s; but even this movie was successful with the new generation moviegoers. This song can also been seen as proof of what I stated earlier in this post viz. “actors speaking with their eyes”; here it is Hema and AB Sr. They have played the old couple so convincingly. The song is sung by Amitabh Bachchan and Alka Yagnik.

Here is wishing the (once) Angry- Youngman, Shahenshah of Bollywood, Star of the Millennium, Big B or AB Sr. (people in entertainment industry have been addressing him in this manner for a few years now) a Happy Birthday and lots of good health.

bekaraari kaa aisa aalam hai
jism tanha hai rooh pyaasi hai

teree soorat ab ek pal kyun nazar se hatati nahin

neend aati nahin
yaad jaati nahin ee ee
neend aati nahin
yaad jaati nahin

Blog Day :

Hullo Atuldom

I am super charged as I sit to write this post. I don’t know how to express my SURPRISE that the songs of this movie are yet to appear on the blog. I made a quick call to Atulji to confirm that this movie has not yet made its debut. I was making sure that it doesn’t appear under any other spelling. Atulji said that he is aware that it is yet to debut, so let us have it.

This 1980 release is a fantasy film based on a story from the Arabian Nights. Something that every child would have grown up reading, hence I am refraining from giving the story/ synopsis. I shall just say that this film had a generous dose of romance and romantic songs along with good quality action scenes. The film was an Indo-Soviet joint venture with the Uzbek director Latif Faiziyev and Indian director Umesh Mehra directing a set of Bollywood stars/actors and some Russian, Caucasian and Central Asian actors. Anand Bakshi and RD Burman were in charge of the songs that are popular till today and only three singers were used- Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar.

Before I present the song I would like to go into flashback with this song. That was to wish the actor Prem Chopra on his birthday. In there I had mentioned how his pairing with Rajesh Khanna was sure formula for success in the early 70s- he appeared in 19 movies as a co-actor of Rajesh Khanna.

Another actor with whom he was acceptable to the audiences was Dharmendra with whom he has appeared in around 30 films.

There are other actors with whom he has been regularly appreciated with and has done sizeable number of films – like 16 with Manoj Kumar, 24 with Amitabh Bachchan. I would like to know the count of films that Prem Chopra appeared, with respect to other prominent actors like Dev Anand, Jeetendra, Feroz Khan, Sunil Dutt, Rishi Kapoor etc. I know for sure that he has acted in 4 movies with his idol Dilip Kumar.

In my post of the 23rd September 2018, I had also mentioned how there were numerous songs where the heroines will sing love songs with the characters played by Chopra in order to get a response from the hero. Today’s song is similar to Kitna mazaa aa raha hai(Raja Jani)(1972) with a minor difference. Here we have the heroine dancing to the tunes of the hero. The ultimate aim being to rescue the girl from her predicament and an unwanted marriage with the wily Shamsher (Prem Chopra). Here the hero Alibaba (Dharmendra) has come as a Jadugar and has promised Shamsher that he will do some ‘mumbo-jumbo’ and get Marjina (Hema Malini) agree to his marriage proposal. For starters, the Jadugar gets Shamsher to dance and Marjina stands like a statue. But when she sees her lost ‘paayal’ (called ‘ghungroo’ in the song) she recognizes the Jadugar and joins him in the song-n-dance routine.

I have read in one of Prem Chopra’s interviews in the past, that he is scared of snakes and that he was petrified to shoot this song as the last stanza has a snake appearing out of nowhere. So possibly the priceless expression that he has given was not acting.

Prem Chopra has been a great supporting actor for almost 61 years. He began his career with a Punjabi film in 1960, followed by brief roles in ‘Hum Hindustani’, ‘Woh Kaun Thi’ etc. ‘Shaheed’ along side Manoj Kumar can be said to be his breakthrough film. ‘Upkaar’ and ‘Do Raaste’ also need to be mentioned as they presented him with different types of characters in spite of being Gray-shaded.It is well-known that he is connected to the Kapoor Khandaan as his wife and Raj Kapoor’s wife were sisters so that also makes him a brother-in-law to Prem Nath, Rajendra Nath and Narendra Nath.
Here is wishing this Tall and Handsome actor on his 86th birthday good health and lots of happiness.

Presenting ‘Alibaba aur 40 Chor’ (1980) on the blog, with this song, which I have written without hearing the video. After writing the lyrics I heard the song and found one error in what I had noted. I found that in all these years (41 years) I was singing this one line bas hadd kar di o bedardi wrong.

Blog Day :

I am poor in remembering important dates, as I have stressed many a times. And ith passage of time, I am actually becoming more absent minded. We already have our anniversary page, hich is consulted by many music lovers, but I have not consulted it myself for quite some time. So, I come to know about important music related dates from others, who themselves may have come to know about these dates from our anniversary page ! 🙂

Today morning, I came to know that it is Mukesh’s birth anniversary. And I also noticed that as many as two Mukesh songs were covered yesterday (21 july 2021) and that took the tally of Mukesh songs in the blog to 799 !

So fate had ordained that Mukesh would complete his 800th song in the blog on his birth anniversary !

With so many Mukesh songs already covered in the blog, just a few Mukesh songs are left to be covered. One would expect that most well known Mukesh songs are already covered in the blog. And they are right. Still, there are some Mukesh songs that are so far still at large. There is one such song that readily came to my mind. I myself was surprised to note that such a well known Mukesh song was still not there in the blog.

This song is from “Dharmatma”(1975). The movie had five songs in it, including one multiple version song. The five songs were sung by five singers, namely Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Mukesh and Kanchan. While the first three singers sang one solo song each, Mukesh and Kanchan sang two duets in the movie. Both duets were extremely popular songs of those days. The first duet, Kya khoob lagti ho badi sundar dikhti ho(Dharmatma), is already there in the blog.

Here is the second Mukesh Kanchan duet from “Dharmatma”(1975). It is picturised on Rekha and Feroz Khan. Rekha is with him, and Feroz Khan is dreaming about Hema Malini. This way, this song is similar in picturisation to the “Gora Aur Kaala”(1972) song covered in the blog yesterday. 🙂

Indeewar in the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

As discussed above, This song is the 800th Mukesh song in the blog. Quite an appropriate song to mark the birth anniversary of legendary singer Mukesh.

With this song, all the songs of “Dharmatma”(1975) are now covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

tum ne kisi se kabhi pyaar kiya hai

tum ne kisi se kabhi pyaar kiya hai
pyaar bhara dil kisi ko diya hai
pyaar kahaan apni kismat mein
pyaar kahaan apni kismat mein
pyaar ka bas deedaar kiya hai

tum ne kisi se kabhi pyaar kiya hai
pyar bhara dil kisi ko diya hai

aa aa aa

tum ho itne haseen ke tum par laakhon marti hongi
haan haan
laakhon marti hongi
tum ho itne jawaan, hazaaron aahen bharti hongi
haan haan
aahen bharti hongi
kis ko kaha tumne apna aa
ban ke rahe kis ka sapna aa
sapne to sapne hain aakhir
sapne to sapne hain aakhir
kis ne inhen saakaar kiya hai

tum ne kisi se kabhi pyar kiya hai
pyaar bhara dil kisi ko diya hai

aaa aa aa
aa aa aa aa
aa aa aaa aa
aa aa aa aa

maine dekha haal dilon ka
dekhe do dilwaale
maine dekhe do dilwaale
ek dooje ke pyaar pe donon jaan lutaane waale ae
donon jaan lutaane waale
pyaar ka saara jahaan dushman
dekh saka na unka milan

auron ki chhodo, apni sunaao
auron ki chhodo, apni sunaao
tum ne kahaan dil haar diya hai
tum ne kisi se kabhi pyaar kiya hai
pyaar bhara dil kisi ko diya hai
