When one talks of star pairings during the golden era of Hindi movies, one thinks of “A grade” star pairings like Raj Kapoor-Nargis, Dilip Kumar- Madhubala, Dilip Kumar-Meena Kumari, Dev Anand- Waheeda Rehman etc. But there were other pairs too, that would be signed up by smaller budget movie makers, like for instance, Ashok Kumar- Nirupa Roy, Kishore Kumar-Vyjyanti Mala etc.

Movie makers with even smaller budgets would sign up up and coming pairs, who may have started off as child artists. One such pair was Shashi Kapoor and Nanda. Unlike some other pairs, this pair delivered quite a few hits and became a dependable pair.

Names of movies such as Chaar Deewaari (1961), Mohabbat Isko Kehte Hain (1965), Jab Jab Phool Khile (1965), Neend Hamari Khwaab Tumhaare (1966), Juaari (1968), Raja Sahab (1969) and Roothha Na Karo (1970) comes to mind when one thinks of Shashi Kapoor-Nanda pair.

Here is a song picturised on this pair. This playful and cheerful romantic song is from “Mehndi Lagi Mere Haath”(1962). This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Usha Mangeshkar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The song shows playful looking Shashi Kapoor and Nanda teasing each other. The best teasing is reserved in the last stanza of the song where Shashi Kapoor teases the lady -“you show arrogance as if you are baby Nanda.”
Pat comes the retort- “you behave as if you are the kid brother of Raj Kapoor”. 🙂

Great fun lyrics by Anand Bakshi during his early days in Hindi movies.

This song was the sixth song, out of six that this movie had. The earlier five songs, including one multiple version song, have been covered in the blog in the past in 2010 (two songs), 2015 (one multiple version song) and 2017 (one song). Following are the details of the earlier songs from this movie :

Hindi movie songs of the golden era tended to have certain standard son situations. The lyricists were asked to provide lyrics for those situations. And it must be said that the lyricists often managed to do some value additions of their own even in these routine song situations.

Take mujra songs for instance. Almost every Hindi movie of those days tended to have a mujra song situation. This blog itself has as many as 207 mujra songs as of now. And quite a few of these songs have ended up becoming memorable songs.

“Joru Ka Ghulam”(1972) was a “social” movie which was directed by A Bhim Singh for United Four, Bombay. The movie had Nanda, Rajesh Khanna, Om Prakash, Sharad Kumar, Maneesha, Achla Sachdev, Kedar Sahgal, Ramesh Deo, Gurnaam, Mridula, Jayshree T, Narbada Shankar, Kabeer, Moolchand etc with guest appearances by Komal, Manmohan Krishn, Nana Palsikar and Ifthikar.

The movie had five songs in it. Four of these songs (every song being of a separate genre) have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth and final song from the movie. And this song happens to be a mujra song. It is sung by Lata. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Anand Bakshi has come up with interesting lyrics for this mujra song. The song is picturised on Jayshree T and Ramesh Deo plays her customer in the kotha.

I had never heard this song before and I must say that I liked this song right from the very firdst time that i heard it, which was today, some 46 years after this song was released. 🙂

With this song, “Joru Ka Ghulam”(1972) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Blog Day : 3455 Post No. : 13858

 

On the first day of the year 2008, I mentioned that I was able to hold on to my previous year’s new year resolution for 40 days (introducing a debutant movie daily) and 125 days (YIPPYing a movie daily) respectively.

Our regulars, suitably inspired by my writeup, have taken it upon themselves to at least help me in introducing one debutant song daily in the year 2018. The very first song post covered in the year 2018 by Peevesie’s mom was a debutant movie viz “Kohraam” (1999). On the next day viz 2 january 2018, a song from a debutant movie “Kisaan Kanya” (1937) was discussed by Mr Sadanand Kamath. Sudhir Jee has lined up another debutant movie song for the next day. That way at least the “debutant” movie resolution has been taken care of till now.

That frees me up to concentrate on YIPPEE movies. I discussed the last song from “Mad Bhare Nain” (1955) on the first day of the year. Today (2 january 2018), I again scanned for suitable movies (with one song left). As happens most of the time, I found that the final song of many movies were not available. On the few cases where the final songs were available, the songs were so special that I felt that these songs needed to be held back for some special occasions.

That really limits my options. After scanning yearwise, staring from the earlier years onwards, I finally settled for “Ek Kunwaari Ek Kunwaara” (1973) as the movie whose final song was available and the movie movie could be YIPPEED for the day.

“Ek Kunwaari Ek Kunwaara” (1973) was a comedy film which was directed by Prakash Mehra for J J Films, Bombay. The movie had Rakesh Roshan, Leena Chandawarkar, Pran, Kumkum, Rajendranath, Janki Das, Jugal Kishore, Goga Kapoor, Lalita Kumari, Raj Mehra, Moolchand, Yunus Parvez, Ram Sethi, Sundar etc ion it.

The movie has four songs in it. Three songs, including the most popular song from the movie viz. Agar dil hamaara sheeshe ke badle patthar kaa hotaa , have been covered in the past.

The fourth and final song from the movie is chronologically the first song of the movie. It appears in the movie just about 19 minutes after the start. A new year party is in progress and the announcer announces this “item” number, presented by a new “item”. This song is a stage performance song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle. The dance performer is Jayshree T (I guess), but Pran, who is there among the audience, imagines her to be Kumkum. So one can say that this song is picturised on Jayshree T as well as Kumkum.

Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

With this song, “Ek Kunwaari Ek Kunwaara” (1973) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

[Ed Note: The lyrics for this song were sent in by Prakash ji earlier in July. At time after reviewing the song, we had agreed to retain this song for the New Year day. At that time the video clip of this song was available, which had the lead in announcement of the song being in celebration of New Year. When we checked again two days ago, the video clip on YT is now disabled. On YT, we are able to locate only an audio clip of the song, which excludes the New Year connection. The video clip is now uploaded on Atul ji’s Vimeo channel. The complete movie is however available on YT at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2i4IwQWxFME . In this film clip, the song appears at 18:58 to 23.10, including the New Year announcement in the beginning.]

Song-Chori khole na ye maathe ka paseena (Ek Kunwaari Ek Kunwaara)(1973) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

lagta hai mile ho tum

kaahe soche re daaman thhaam koi
aisi barson mein aati hai shaam koi
ye hai pyaala puraana
chhod bhi de

naye rang se mana naya saal sajna

Just five days ago, I’d written a post here paying tribute to one of the most loved legends of the Hindi film industry, Mohammad Rafi, on his birth anniversary. Referred to by many (including me) as Rafisaab, he was a giant in his field. Yet  he remained humble to his last day, never letting success get to his head. He treated everyone with great respect and, in turn, earned the respect of everyone he interacted with.

Today we pay tribute to another legend of the industry on his birth anniversary. Also a superstar in his own right, albeit for a relatively short period of time, he was possibly the best antithesis of Rafisaab in terms of letting success get to his head, treating everyone with great respect, and in turn, earning respect of everyone he interacted with. Thus his career, and his life, turned out to be very different from Rafisaab’s. Everyone goes through ups and downs in his career – and both this person and Rafisaab are not exceptions to this phenomenon.

Yet, even in his “downs”, there were those who stood by Rafisaab. The goodwill he had earned earlier stood him in good stead. On the other hand though, this other legendary person was not so lucky. His airs and rather dismissive (to use the most charitable term I can think of) treatment of others during his heyday, came back to haunt him when he was on his way down.  He hadn’t built enough goodwill, his relationships were damaged – this only hastened his downfall. Although he made a somewhat modest recovery later, and even admitted to his earlier mistakes, his image as an arrogant, even mean and vindictive, person stayed till his last day.

This world can be so unforgiving.

By now, I’m sure everyone knows who I am talking about. The one-time superstar of Hindi cinema, the one who at one time could deliver a superhit even if the main character in his film was an elephant, the one whose mere smile and slight shake of the head had audiences in a swoon, the one who set off a rage of buttoned-up silk kurtas as a fashion trend – yes, I am talking about Rajesh Khanna.

He would have been 75 today if he’d been alive. But he didn’t live to even see 70 – he died in 2012, when still just 69. Although he’d been ailing for a while, news of his death still shocked me – I wrote a blogpost on the occasion on my blog, in tribute to him.

See, here’s the thing. I don’t, for one moment, defend Rajesh Khanna for all his wrongdoings, his arrogance, any charges that anyone might level against him. If true, he must rightly be called out for them.  So  if anyone is trying to troll me by pointing out his failings (this happens sometimes) and expecting me to defend Rajesh Khanna, it won’t work – I will probably wholeheartedly agree with them. I am not living in denial about his misdeeds.

Yet, I can also not deny that Rajesh Khanna’s films provided me with a lot of entertainment and fun in my childhood days, of which I still have very fond memories. It just so happened that his superstar days coincided almost exactly with the time that I was watching Hindi films as a young boy. I have a sort of attachment towards him that is hard to explain –  considering everything else. It of course need not have been so. Atul too is of my era – and he has no such attachment.  Fair enough. I happen to have it – and even now, I sometimes watch videos of Rajesh Khanna songs of that 1969-1973 period, and get transported to that period.

I distinctly remember watching him then in songs like “Gussa Itna Haseen Hai  To Pyar Kaisa Hoga” (‘Maryada’), “Yahaan Wahaan Saare Jahaan Mein Tera Raaj Hai” (‘Aan Milo Sajna’), “Ye Jo Mohabbat Hai”, “Ye Shaam Mastaani”, and “Pyaar Deewaana Hota Hai” (all three from ‘Kati Patang’ – one of my favourite films at the time),  “Rona Kabhi Nahin Rona” (‘Apna Desh’), “Vaada Tera Vaada” (‘Dushman’), “O Mere Dil Ke Chain” (‘Mere Jeevan Saathi’)  and many more songs – and enjoying these songs and his mannerisms a lot.

I was very young then – and initially thought he was singing these songs himself. 🙂 When I was told he was only the actor in front of the camera and that someone else (in this case, Kishore Kumar) was the singer, I remember being a bit disappointed. But that did not take away from the enjoyment of the songs, or his mannerisms, or the films. Later on, when his mannerisms became forced and began to jar, the long hair (which was a fashion at the time)  made him look less appealing to me, and the quality of films too began dropping, the charm wore off, not only for India’s masses, but also for me. (After all, I also belonged to those masses).

But for the memories of those few early years, I have always had a soft corner for Rajesh Khanna. That sideways tilt of the head, that dialogue delivery (check out the dialogue just before the song “Daanton Taley Dabaa Kar Honth” from ‘Doli’ – the video is available on YouTube – and you will know what I mean). These are the memories of him I always keep with me. I have not watched many of his later films – maybe because I want to keep his 1969-73 image in my mind and not  a 1985 one. Having said that, I’ve heard that some of his 1980s films are worth a watch – so I think I will give them a try.

So, to summarise, yes, Rajesh Khanna had a lot of faults – more than probably any other actor. But he also had a meteoric rise that no other actor had – and , while he need not have let success get to his head – he was also only human. Sometimes maybe you do need extremes to make a point.

Maybe it is examples like Rafisaab (or probably for a more modern generation, Rahul Dravid) and Rajesh Khanna that can be held up for youngsters. When you achieve success, make sure you don’t lose your head. Make sure you follow the Rafisaab (or Dravid) example, not the Rajesh Khanna one. I don’t think Rajesh Khanna himself would mind this. Much later in life, he did realize his mistakes – and warned other youngsters not to fall prey to their own success. A lesson learnt the hard way.

Coming to the song for today. As always with Rajesh Khanna songs, I prefer to roll back the years and  go back to the Rajesh Khanna of 1969-73. The film si ‘Joru Ka Ghulaam’ (1972) – one of the films I distinctly remember from my childhood days. It is not one of Rajesh’s biggest hits, but I remember quite liking the film when I saw it. One of its songs,  “Nainon Mein, Nindiya Hai”, was very popular in its time. But the other songs were also fairly well-known, as was not uncommon for songs from Rajesh Khanna films at the time.

The song is “Baras Gayi Re Taras Gayi Re”. I had marked this song for a write-up the last time I wrote about Rajesh Khanna, but at the last minute, I decided to go with “O Monalisa” from ‘Dil Daulat Duniya’. I was a bit surprised to find that this song was still available for posting – so here goes.

The lyrics have been provided by Avinashji, who, as everyone knows is a big Rajesh Khanna fan. Even bigger than I am. So when I decided to write this up, he immediately offered to provide the lyrics. I gladly accepted. Thank you, Avinashji.

Hope you enjoy this song. It is written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Hullo Atuldom

“Banarsi Babu” is a 1973 movie which was produced and directed by Shankar Mukherjee. The movie had Dev Anand- Rakhee- Yogita Bali in the lead with Jeevan, I.S. Johar, Manorama, Veena, Bhagwan Dada, Maruti etc in supporting cast.

It was a very simple story of twins getting separated in childhood- one is adopted by a wealthy lady (Raj Rani) and the other remains with the biological mother (Veena) in Banaras. The child with the foster mother grows up to be a wealthy businessman (Sohan) and the other a pickpocket (Mohan) who has Gulabi (Yogita Bali) as an accomplice.

On a trip to Kashmir Sohan meets the beautiful Neela (Rakhee) falls in love and marries her. He has a scheming manager Saxena (Jeevan) who sends him away on some other trip to London and replaces him with his look-a-like from Banaras in Neela’s life so that they can con her of her inheritance. Matters take a twist when Gulabi comes looking for her Mohan and bumps into Sohan.

Another twist is when escaping the clutches of Saxena’s henchmen he walks into his mother Veena’s hospital room and she calls him Mohan. Then when he returns home he finds Neela cold towards him as she has begun suspecting that he is after her wealth. All this leads to a climax where first the two brothers find each other and then they fight Saxena. Finally, two and half hours are up during which time we are also treated to some entertaining songs penned by Rajender Krishan and composed by Kalyanji- Anandji. Kishore Kumar (who else) was the voice for Dev Anand and Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle were the voices for the ladies.

On the sixth anniversary of the stylish actor producer and director Dev Anand let us remember him with a lively song from this movie. The song has Rakhee and Dev Anand as Sohan romping about on the snow-clad mountains and teasing each other. After the song it is revealed that they are in love and on a honeymoon.

A small trivia: 1973 saw Dev Anand in five movies- “Shareef Badmaash” with Hema Malini & Rakhee (already yyiippeed); “Joshila” again Rakhee and Hema Malini (not yet yyiippeed); “Heera Panna” with Rakhee and Zeenat Aman (only 2 songs posted); “Chhupa Rustam” with Hema Malini (not yet yyiippeeeed); and “Banarasi Babu” with Rakhee and Yogita Bali (only 1 song as yet that too posted in 2009). So, we se that Hema and Rakhee were his preferred heroines that year. Just a little food for thought.

Editor’s note-Though Lata and Asha Bhonsle are described as the female playback singers in the movie, the female version of this song does not sound like Lata’s (Lata is mentioned as the singer in HFGK). Perhaps she had sung the record version and the movie version had another voice ? The voice sounds more like Usha Khanna, it hardly sounds like Lata.

Male version

Female version

Song-Mere peechhe ek ladki (Banarasi Babu)(1973) Singer-Kishore Kumar / Lata (?), Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

mere peechhe ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki

hey ae ae ae ae
haaye dil ki dushman jaan ki dushman
dil ki dushman jaan ki dushman
yeh bhi na samjhaaye
kyun saaye ki tarah yeh mere peechhe peechhe aaye
main ladka seedha saadha
main ladka seedha saadha
kya jaanoon iska iraada
munh se toh yeh kuchh na boley
aankhon se boley zyaada
mere peechhe ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki

haaye deewaani se pyaar karen toh
arre deewaani se pyaar karen toh
deewaane kehlaayen
baahon mein aa jaaye toh
hum shaayad maan bhi jaayen
hai mausam mast gulaabi
tara ru ru ru ru
hai mausam mast gulaabi
dil kaise ho na sharaabi
pyaar zaraa sa kar len toh hai
iss mein kaun kharaabi

mere peeche ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peeche ek ladki

Deewaane se pyaar karoon toh
Deewaane se pyaar karoon toh
Deewaani kehlaaoon
Baahon mein aa jaaye toh
Main shaayad maan bhi jaaoon
Hai mausam mast gulaabi
La la la la la la
Hai Mausam mast gulaabi
Dil kaise ho na sharaabi
pyaar zaraa sa karloon toh hain
issme kaun kharaabi
mere peeche ek ladka
ek ladka pagla sa
awaara baadal sa
ghoom raha hain
jhoom raha hain
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peeche ek ladka
ek ladka pagla sa
awaara baadal sa
ghoom raha hai
jhoom raha hai
dil de doon isko kaise

hullo to all in Atuldom

Today 13th of October is a rather sad date for fans of Bollywood music. It was on this date in 1987 that we lost a gem of the industry to “KAAL”. Its 30 years already and we are yet to find an entertainer like him. We still don’t have a singer, actor (brilliant in comedy), composer, song-writer, and finally a producer-director like him. Our own Kishore Kumar.

The uncertainties of life, in some way, always gives us happy as well as sad moments and surprises as well. The journey of life keeps on going on and on still, like that only. . . We never know how things are going to happen around us and what ‘life’ has there in store for us with every new day coming.

It was a surprise for many – when the Mukesh Geet Kosh was published (in 1985), and the compilation, at that time, was able to list less than a thousand songs in all – filmi, non filmi, other languages all combined. It was a general impression carried amongst the fans that well, yes, Mukesh has not sung as many songs as Rafi Sb, but then, less than thousand?? And then, it became a new topic to write about and discuss – why is it so that the impression is that Mukesh has recorded a lot many more songs than are popularly known.

Today (22 july 2017) is the birth anniversary of our beloved singer, Mukesh Chand Mathur, better known to one and all as Mukesh (22 july 1923-27 august 1976).

I don’t recall if I have written a tribute to him yet on this blog – I think I might have. But even so, there are no rules here saying I cannot write another one. 🙂  And since I have several fond memories of listening to Mukesh songs in my life, I am happy to use this occasion to remember him and pay my humble tribute to him.
