Hullo To all in Atuldom

A very happy Janmashtami or Gokulashtami or Sri Krishna Jayanthi as it is called in the various parts of the country. It is celebrated with a lot of prasads, bhajans and jagrans (in some regions). Jagran means keeping awake. The thought behind this is that Lord Krishna was born in the dead of the night so the devotees keep vigil till that hour. As per mythology it was raining heavily at the time of the Lord’s birth and most of the country is having a good monsoon at this point.

The Srimad Bhagwat Puraan says- at birth the Lord was transported, hidden inside a basket by his father Vasudev, to the house of Nand in Gokul, across a swollen Yamuna. (As if in anticipation of the lord there is a flood alert along the banks of the river Yamuna this year.) The Lord grew up in the loving care of Nand and his wife Yashoda. His baal-leelas (playful pastimes as a child) are described in the 10th Canto of the Srimad Bhagwat Puraan. One of the acts described in great detail is ‘maakhan chori‘ – how the lord Loved to reach out to the pots of curds, milk and butter that used to be hung up in the kitchens of Gokul.

Today’s song shows the day 2 of the Janmashtami / Gokulashtami celebrations that is very common in western India. It is from the 1979 Rajkumar Kohli directed Sunil Dutt- Reena Roy- Bindiya Goswami- Shatrughan Sinha starrer ‘Muqaabla’. It has songs penned by Verma Malik with Laxmi-Pyare as the music directors.  Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Anwar, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd. Rafi are the playback singers used in the movie. The movie was a typical romantic, masaala movie where Sunil Dutt and Shatru play gang leaders. I vaguely remember having seen it, possibly on television, and by the time I discovered it half the movie was over.

But here is the gist as given on IMDB.com:

Sheru (Shatrughan Sinha) and Vicky (Sunil Dutt) are two gang leaders. After a series of complications and mishaps both realize that they will be better off being friends and helping the poor and needy. They also fall in love with two separate women, one of them is Lacho (Reena Roy). When these two turn good guys, the bad guy’s leader Banwanri (Ranjeet) gets angry and vengeful. Fortunately, our two heroes get support from a honest police inspector (Premnath). Then Sheru finds out that Lacho really loves Vicky and his son, this embittered them both against each other. And the two again resume their old rivalry and hatred for each other.

As I said earlier, Janmashtami celebrations continue on to the second day in many parts of India. There are street corner scenes where in pots of goodies along with dahi are tied high up. Groups of youngsters make an attempt at breaking the pots, by making human pyramids and emulating Krishna’s habit of breaking pots which were tied up in the kitchens of yore.

In my younger days (there, I let the cat out of the bag, that I am not so young now though I like to think that I am still a bachcha 🙂 ) we used to have dahi-handi in our apartment complex between the two wings of flats. They used to be tied at a height of 1st floor. We needed a pyramid of three tiers to reach the handi. It was a very simple joyful day. Then as time went by, as in other spheres of life, commercialization set in the dahi-handi festival began to be conducted with prize money attached to the ropes of dahi-handi. This has further grown to the extent that there is this chowk (crossroad intersection) in Thane where the competition is held and the whole road is out of bounds for traffic for the day. And groups of youth practice for months on end to make pyramids which have seven or eight layers. There are numerous cases of people falling and breaking their limbs.  Lately there are also all girl groups in the contest. It is telecast live on all Marathi TV channels and makes for good viewing.

Dahi-handi was made popular in Hindi cinema by Shammi Kapoor in ‘Bluffmaster’ (1965) – the original “Govinda Aala Re, Aala, Zara Matki Sambhaal Brijbaala“.  Various heroes have copied him in subsequent years. In today’s song, we have Shatrughan Sinha and Sunil Dutt have a go at the handi along with Manmohan (in red shirt) and others who are not clear in this video. (A few years back Sonakshi Sinha also had a Govinda song to her name). The song is written by Verma Malik and Laxmikant Pyarelal are the music directors. Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar are the playback singers.  I couldn’t stop my smile when I saw Sunil Dutt dancing. Don’t know who the dance master was who gave him steps that were uncharacteristic of Duttsaab. Then Dr. Shreeram Lagoo enters the scene as the advisor of peace and I was desperately trying to recognize the actor in the light brown shirt with a head band who was trying to raise bets on who will break the handi. The finale of the song is the whole pyramid collapsing when this actor pokes a pin into the feet of one of the govindas (that is what the boys in the pyramid are called)

Govinda Aala Re!!!!

Song – Teen Batti Waala, Ae Govinda Aala  (Muqaabla) (1979) Singer -Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Verma Malik, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Naseeruddin Shah, in a chat with a newspaper journalist sometime in early 2014, had revealed that there were about 35 Hindi which have been completed in all respect but remained unreleased till that day. If the numbers are correct, it could be some sort of a dubious record for a Hindi film actor. But I am not surprised. Naseeruddin Shah has been mostly associated with the ‘parallel’ and the ‘middle of the road cinemas. And for such types of films, it is very difficult to get distributors to release the films.

Out of curiosity, I searched for the list of Naseeruddin Shah’s unreleased films on the internet but drew a blank. I could trace out names of his few unreleased films which included one untitled film directed by Mrinal Sen some time in 1970s, ‘Musaafir’ (1986) ‘Libaas’ (1988) directed by Gulzar, ‘Time Machine’ (1992) directed by Shekhar Kapoor, ‘Eelctric Moon’ (1992, English), ‘101 Days (1992), ‘Private Detective : Two Plus Two Plus One’ (1997), ‘The Coffin Maker’ (2013) ‘Chambal Safari’ (2014), ‘Company Ustaad’ (2014), ‘Mastaan’ (2014), ‘Thaak Jhaank’ (2016) etc.

From the above list, I found the film ‘Musaafir’ (1986) an interesting one for more than one reason. First, the film was directed by Dr. Jabbar Patel, an imminent Marathi theatre and film personality known for producing and directing classic Marathi dramas and ‘middle of the road’ Marathi films. This was Dr. Jabbar Patel’s first association with Hindi film as a director. Second, the film’s star cast included Rekha besides Naseeruddin Shah, Moon Moon Sen, Mohan Agashe, Usha Nadkarni and Pankaj Kapoor. Lastly, the songs were written by Gulzar which were set to music by R D Burman.

The film was based on a Marathi play ‘Ashi Pakhre Yeti’ (Aise Aaten Hain Panchhi or Here Comes the Birds) written by Vijay Tendulkar who wrote the film’s screen-play. Gulzar wrote the dialogues. The film was certified by the Censor Board sometime in 1984 but it could not get a theatrical release.

I searched for the film on the net but could not locate the DVD of the full film. Finally, I located the film which has been uploaded on YT in parts. From the quality of the video, I guess, the uploader has uploaded the video clips of the film ripping off from VHS tape. I also noticed that some parts of the film got repeated in the clips. So it was difficult for me to know as to the proper sequence of the story in the film. With these limitations, I give below a gist of the story of the film:

The story of the film can broadly be divided into two parts. In the first part, the story revolves around Naseeruddin Shah and Moon Moon Sen who have recently married and have been staying in a posh locality in Mumbai. While Naseeruddin Shah is a reserved type of man, Moon Moon Sen is an extrovert and tomboyish. She likes to spend the free time with her male friends. Being a daughter of a wealthy parents and convent educated, she has been brought up in a liberal environment.

Naseeruddin Shah resents his wife’s association with her male friends. But he is unable to tell so to his wife. He feels that if they start a family, perhaps she will have more time to spend with him than with her male friends. But his wife is afraid of child birth because of her earlier trauma of mis-carriage. His resentment inside him about his wife’s behaviour get worsen day by day. He has now become so paranoid that he starts suspecting his wife having an affair with one of her male friends (Benjamin Gilani) and fears that one day she would leave him. With these kinds of paranoid thoughts, he kills his wife by poisoning her and gets her admitted to a hospital in an unconscious state. After few hours of her admission, she dies. The doctors and police are waiting for the post-mortem report. Naseeruddin Shah decides to run away.

The second part of the story starts in a village in Kerala where after wandering all over India, Naseeruddin Shah decides to settle in a village in Kerala. Impulsively, he visits a house of a middle class family and introduces himself as one of the past students of a local school where he had studied during his childhood and where the patriarch of the family was a teacher. He gets this idea to introduce himself from the photographs displayed in the varandah of the house. With this, a comfort level between the family consisting of father (Mohan Agashe), mother (Usha Nadkarni), daughter (Rekha) and son (Pankaj Kapoor) and himself have been established. The family allows him to stay with them for few days.

During his stays, Naseeruddin Shah comes to know that all four of them suffer from different problems arising from lack of confidence. With his wits and persuasion, he changes their lives to make them confident. In the meanwhile, the parents are scouting for a groom for their daughter (Rekha). She is presented to the prospective groom who has come to see her with his family. The groom’s family approves of her but she rejects the groom as she has fallen in love with Naseeruddin Shah who has taken shelter in her house.

Naseeruddin Shah tries to bring the rejected groom and the bride together to discuss as to the reason for her rejection of him. In this process, Naseeruddin Shah comes to know that the Rekha has developed a soft corner for him. He decides to leave the house without the knowledge of the family. But Rekha comes to know of his plans and confronts him as to why he leaving the village. Naseeruddin Shah gives many excuses but Rekha is not convinced. Finally, he reveals that he is a murderer and the police forces are looking for him. Rekha still thinks that he is lying just to justify his leaving the village. Knowing that he is determined to leave, she tells him that she would not now stop him for leaving the village.

Naseeruddin Shah returns to his apartment in Mumbai where he used to stay with his wife. He is overwhelmed with the nostalgia. While standing in front of a mirror in his bedroom watching his own reflection, images of his wife and Rekha come. The faster interchanges of images in the mirror of Moon Moon Sen and Rekha make him emotionally unstable. He commits suicide by a gun shot at his own head.

The film has three melodious songs of which I have chosen to present the song ‘thhak gaya hoon mujhe sone do’ sung by Kishore Kumar. This song is played as a background song which comes in the film at a crucial stage. Naseeruddin Shah is running away from Mumbai after killing his wife. The song symbolises the transition from his Mumbai story to the next story in a Kerala village to start his life afresh.

The song is also available in studio recording version with somewhat different orchestrations with an additional antara. I like this version more than the film’s sound track version for its orchestration. From the studio version, one can notice that before Kishore Kumar starts singing, there is a faint voice (probably of R D Burman) saying ‘1, 2, 1, 2, ‘start’. After the second antara of singing, Kishore Kumar makes a mistake by repeating the second antara. There is a faint voice saying ‘cut’ and he stops singing. Some instructions to Kishore Kumar, probably from R D Burman in faint voice can be heard after which R D Burman repeats his part of singing and Kishore Kumar takes over his singing of third antara. In the lyrics given below, I have omitted the repeat portion.

It is a melancholic song in keeping with the situation in the film. Gulzar saab’s lyrics are simple but conveys the depressing situation in his trade-mark style. The tune is melodious and the orchestration is good in the context of the song.

Lyrics(Based on the studio recording version)

o bahut raat huyi
thhak gaya hoon
mujhe sone do
o bahut raat huyi
o chaand se keh do utar jaaye
bahut baat huyi
chaand se keh do utar jaaye
bahut baat huyi
thhak gaya hoon
mujhe sone do
o bahut raat huyi

zindagi ke sabhi raaste sard hain
zindagi ke sabhi raaste sard hain
ajnabi raat ke ajnabi dard hain
yaad se keh do guzar jaaye
bahut baat huyi
yaad se keh do guzar jaaye
bahut baat huyi
main thhak gaya hoon
mujhe sone do
o bahut raat huyi

aashiyaan ke liye chaar tinke bhi thhe
aasre raat ke aur din ke bhi thhe
dhoondhte thhe jise wo zara si zameen
aasmaan ke tale kho gayi hai kahin
dhoop se keh do utar jaaye
bahut baat huyi
dhoop se keh do utar jaaye
bahut baat huyi
main thhak gaya hoon
mujhe sone do
o bahut raat huyi

o maloya….aa
chalo dheere dheere
o maloya….aa
chalo dheere dheere

yaad aata nahin ab koi naam se
yaad aata nahin ab koi naam se
sab gharon ke diye bujh gaye shaam se
waqt se keh do guzar jaaye
bahut baat huyi
waqt se keh do guzar jaaye
bahut baat huyi
main thhak gaya hoon
mujhe sone do
o bahut raat huyi
main thhak gaya hoon
mujhe sone do
(o maloya….aa)
main thhak gaya hoon
(chalo dheere dheere)
main thhak gaya hoon
(o maloya….aa)
mujhe sone do
(chalo dheere dheere)

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 85 #Remembering Kishore Kumar on his birth anniversary#
——————————————

Today 4th August (2019) (4 August 1929 – 13 October 1987) is the 90th birth anniversary of the ‘Versatile Genius’ Kishore Kumar or Abhas Kumar Ganguly or as he always liked to introduce himself as – Kishore Kumar Khandwewaala.

I have mentioned in my earlier posts that I cannot forget Khandwa when I am writing about Kishore Kumar. The place has been associated with his name forever and I have fond memories of visiting Khandwa, his ‘Gouri-Kunj’ and his memorial there on Indore road, when I was at Nagpur from 2015-2017.

For today’s post I am not going to discuss more about ‘Khandwa’ or ‘Gouri-Kunj’, but the song I am going to present today has a ‘Khandwa connection’ because I came across this song during my visit to Khandwa in ‘2015’ when I was preparing a post with a Kishore Kumar song 🙂

This being a song from the seventies I thought I would share it on the blog someday.
When I listen to this song first time (a lesser heard one), I had feeling of hearing it years back, may be on radio. This is a song from the 1971 movie – ‘Jai Baangala Desh’. Both the song and the movie name were new for me except the information about this movie and its song mentioned in HFGK Vol V which I was possessing.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and about its songs.

‘Jai Bangalaa Desh-1971’ was directed by I.S. Johar.

He also wrote the story of this movie and was also the producer of this movie.

The cast of this movie includes I.S. Johar, Ambika Johar, Rajeev Johar, Kaveri Choudhary (Bangladesh), S.N.Bannerjee, Ram Kamlani, Nazeer Kashmiri, Madhumati, Lakshmi Chhaya, Shefali, Pal Sharma, Bhagwan, Dilip Dutt, Polson, Jery, Tuntun, Ramesh Johar, Anand Vij, Satyadeep, Ratan Kashmiri, Master Alankar, Baby Tabassum, Ranger(Dog) and Radha in guest appearance and others.

This movie had total eight sound tracks including title music, theme music and one Dog chase music released on the records of this movie.

The remaining five songs were composed by Kalyanji-Anandji, while three lyricists namely Indeewar wrote three songs, Qamar Jalalabadi and Farooq Qaiser penned one song each.

Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Mahendra Kapoor and Sushma Shreshtha had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar (the only song he had in this movie) and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.
Lyrics are by Indeewar.

(This song plays in the background, and I am unable to identify the actor and other supporting actors shown in the picturization of this song. I would request knowledgeable readers to help in identifying of the actors please.)

On ‘friendship day’ today and paying our tributes to Kishore Kumar, I selected this song sung by Kishore Kumar, which is giving a message of ‘humanity’ and ‘brotherhood’ among the many other songs which I had thought I can share on this occasion today.
Moreover, I personally think that ‘music’ is the best friend making friends all over and bringing people together cutting across the barriers of caste, creed, race and religion all over the world.

So far, on the blog we have 1149 songs of Kishore Kumar posted out of the total 2709 songs (our statistics). And that means we still have a long way to go getting may of the Kishore Kumar songs on the blog. And day to day while listening the radio I am coming across many of his beautiful songs of ‘many moods’ from the eighties which we have to bring here on the blog.

Let us now listen and enjoy today’s song…

With this today’s song the movie ‘Jai Baangla Desh-1971’ is makes a debut on the blog!!!

(Note: – HFGK Vol V mentions that this movie was revised and passed with a new title of ‘Aage Badho’ in 1971 (13.09.1972). The first version of this movie ‘Jai Baangla Desh-1971’ was passed by Censor Board on 26.10.1971).

Happy Friendship day to all in Atuldom

As I have said in my post last year, the first Sunday of August is celebrated in many parts of the world as Friendship day. All the proverbs or sayings connected with Friends and Friendship come rushing to the mind viz. “a friend in need is a friend indeed”; “a real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out”; “every gift from your friend is a wish for your happiness”; “a friends’ eye is like a good mirror”; etc.

At the same time I can recollect numerous songs from Bollywood connected with friendship and friends like “doston se pyaar kiya dushmanon se badle liya” (which subsequently Usha Uthup used to sing as “doston se pyaar kiya dushmano se bahut pyaar kiya” in all her concerts); “ae yaar sun yaari teri mujhe zindagi se bhi pyaari hai”; and the most popular of them all- “ye dosti hum nahin todenge”.

It is really fortunate to have friends on whom one can rely. It is an experience where in, one can just pick up the phone and begin talking as if there was no break in the one-to-one interaction, or any lapse of time in between one meeting or chat and another. And I must say I experienced it. So much so, that around the beginning of June a few friends of mine from my college days decided to meet up at the place of one amongst us and spend a few days together.

Much like the gangout that I had with my blog friends in April end. That gangout was decided at short notice, even the venue changed from Guruji’s place to Kamathji’s place as Guruji had to urgently rush out of Mumbai. It was a hangout that fell in place as Sudhirji intimated that he will be in Mumbai at that time with Bakshishji for company, for almost a week. And I didn’t want to miss the opportunity of meeting the two of them, and made it aware that I will have only a few hours at my disposal before catching my return bus to Bangalore. And the hangout happened with Bharatji, Sudhirji, Bakshishji and Nitinji.

We had a very gracious and efficient host in Kamathji and his family. I simply loved the attention they gave us. Nitinji and Bharatji had already arrived when I reached the venue and then the bell rang. We all expected it to be the Dilliwales but it turned to be our ever-smiling IN-HOUSE ENCYCLOPAEDIA. That was the best surprise that could have been sprung on the gang as we were without information about his location. And the sweet/ cute person that he is, he decided to meet us as soon as he landed in Mumbai – just that morning. Then the Dilliwales walked in and we had quorum so to speak. We managed to spend a joyful time where Sudhirji and Bakshishji spoke of their time well-spent over the last two days doing what we all enjoy- listening to music.

So, when birds of the same feather flock together there is a whole lot of Music, Masti And Magic. (this last 3 Ms is the slogan of one of the many music channels on satellite television). Like it happened when I met my gang of college friends in the heart of summer and the country reeling under temperatures of 40-49 degrees Celsius. But that didn’t stop us from getting out into the sun and seeing a part of the country which we had never visited. And when it got too hot, we just whiled away the time in the comfort of the air-conditioned room, talking of old times and catching up on 30 years of gossip, with platefuls of snacks and mugs full of tea/ coffee. Yes, I had met a particular friend after that many years but we never felt that it was that long back. There was no awkwardness. That is what friends and friendship is about I suppose.

We have numerous Hindi film songs where gangs of girl friends pick up their cycles and go about singing like Saira Banu did in Padosan or Nutan did in Anaari and Chhaliya. Heroes are no different and we have seen Rajendra Kumar in Aas Ka Panchchi; Rishi Kapoor and Rakesh Roshan with their group of friends in Aap Ke Deewane etc. But our movie stars also sing along with their friends in open topped cars and jeeps and we end up having songs like “chaahe koi khush ho chaahe gaaliyan hazaar de”; “Manubhai motor chale pom pom pom”.

Now there is a similarity in the two open topped car songs that I have mentioned. Though the two songs are 24 years apart, and they show the heroes frolicking about they are singing in the same voice. That of Kishore Kumar.

Kishore Kumar who would have been 90 today. Unbelievable!!! But then we are not fortunate to have him amongst us. We are fortunate that we have his songs- songs that tickle us into laughter, bring a smile to our lips, nudge us out of bad moods. And we are grateful to lord almighty for this singer, actor, producer, director and music composer who lived amongst us mortals. Whose friendship with Dev Anand, RD Burman, Rajesh Khanna etc is well known. His voice was instrumental in shaping the careers of many actors till Anil Kapoor, Sunjay Dutt, Kumar Gaurav etc.

Today’s song is from the 1978 Surinder Kapoor produced, Sikandar Khanna directed “Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan” which starred Rishi Kapoor and Moushumi Chatterjee in lead roles with Ashok Kumar, Amjad Khan, Asrani, Ranjeet, Helen, Paintal Mukri, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo etc. Mithun Chakravarthy played one of Rishi Kapoor’s many friends in the movie. The songs were written by Rajinder Krishan and Laxmikant- Pyarelal were the music composers.

I have seen this movie years ago but the story of the movie as given on IMDB.com is as follows (and is accurate I must say) —
Aware that his grandson has acquired all the bad habits of a rich and spoiled brat, including womanizing and alcohol, Lala Ganpat Rai, instructs his lawyers to make it conditional that he, Vishal, shall not receive any money or property from his estate unless he fulfills either of two conditions. One: That he marries a woman of Rai’s choice, Shalini, who shall inherit half of the property; and in order for Vishal to inherit all of the property he must re-locate to their farmhouse in a village, cultivate a piece of land, and grow some crops on it within one year. Needless to say, Vishal is enraged at this, and neither of the two conditions are acceptable to him. However, he reconsiders this, and he and half a dozen friends travel to the village, set a comfortable albeit accommodations, and attempt to cultivate the land. Things do not go as planned, as Vishal and his friends are accused of molesting and raping a village belle, which leads to her suicide. His friends, noticing the changed atmosphere, disappear, leaving Vishal alone to carry out the mammoth task of cultivating the land on his own, without help or support, and angry villagers who may expel him from their village. It looks like Vishal is on his way of losing everything he had ever hoped, prayed, and taken for granted.

From the above story it is evident that friends can make or break one’s life. There is a line in the other song that I have mentioned above

“chaahe koi khush ho chaahe gaaliyan hazaar de” which is how friendships should be

“baant kar jo khaaye us pe apne jaan-o-dil lutaa
jo bachaaye maal us ko jooti’on ka haar de”

Let your heart and your life be beholden
For a buddy who shares his food with you
But for him, who scrimps and keeps safe his things
Be sure to present him with a garland of shoes”

-this I have copy pasted from the post that Sudhirji had written for the song.

Happy Birthday to our Kishore Kumar

Yesterday (26th June) there was a discussion on the ‘Atulites Whatsapp group’ regarding songs containing the word ‘June’ in them. I thought that some of us would definitely point out this song – how can seventies’ fans miss this. So, our beloved Raja ji pointed out this song and reminding it that it was quite a popular song in those days. I must be 2/3 years old then, so I can’t say much about this 🙂 but, after listening this song now, I can say that it’s tune is quite nice and enjoyable and one can easily be humming this song after listening to it once.

I had come across this song few months back during my routine browsing, and since the starting of this month – ‘June’, I wanted to share the song during this month. I was thinking of sharing this song, but as the month progressed it was very hectic on work front for me and it slipped out of mind. But nevertheless, since yesterday’s discussion I thought we still have few days in this month of June and can enjoy this song.

The song is from the 1970 movie ‘Jawaab’ and it is picturised on the favourite comic side plot jodi of the seventies i.e. Mehmood and Aruna Irani. I was also wondering how our regular Mehmood fans have missed this song or maybe they have shared and waiting for its posting. By Mehmood fans I mean our respected Atul ji and Nalini ji. I apologize Atul ji, if he already had a post on this song in his mind. And if he has any, I would like that he present this song with his post here, because all his posts on Mehmood are very very nice and enjoyable.

The following other songs were noted during the discussion.

  • Hai ye June ka maheena – from the 1962 movie ‘Mud Mud Ke Naa Dekh’ – and this also is yet to be posted on the blog!!
  • The other song having the world June is ‘Mere Piyaa gaye Rangoon’

The movie ‘Jawaab’ was directed by Ramanna for RR Pictures, Madras’.  It had Ashok Kumar, Meena Kumari, Jeetendra, Leena Chandavarkar, Prem Chopra, Jyothi Lakshmi, Ulhas, Aruna Irani, Rajan Haksar, Leela Mishra, Prem Kumar, Madhumati, Kanhaiyya, Lakshmi, Pandey, Indra Acharya and Mehmood.

NS Bedi was the dialogue director for this movie. Editing of this movie was done by MS Money. Dialogues of this movie were written by Rajinder Krishan who also wrote the lyrics for all the six songs of this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Lakshmikant-Pyaarelal. Asha Bhonsle, Hemlata, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

From the re-certification date of the movie (available online) – 15.07.1980, it can be concluded that it was originally passed by Censor on 15.07.1970). Two songs from this movie have already been posted on the blog earlier.

This song is a fun love song picturised in a well and when Mehmood is there its entertaining and enjoyable given his own specialities. When I noted the lyrics from the video, the mukhda of this song goes like ‘aaja meri jaan ye hai june ka maheena, june ka maheena hai ye june ka maheena’. However, there is one audio version where the second line of the mukhda is different and having the words as ‘garmi hi garmi, paseena hi paseena’. Except this change in mukhda and “zulfon ki chhaon mein…” in place of “palkon ki chhaon mein bitthaa le o haseena”, rest of the lyrics are same in both versions. HFGK Vol – IV in its listing of this song also mentions the song title as “aaja meri jaan ye hai june ka maheena, garmi hi garmi, paseena hi paseena”, though I could not get to refer the appendices of this Vol IV of HFGK so I am not aware if any additional information about this is noted there. It seems that the first mukhda was overlaid later, in the movie version, before released. Possibly some objection by the censors. The change can be noticed in the lip movements of Mehmood.

Well, as Raja ji mentioned “though the Monsoon has started over and spreading its ‘wings’ across, some parts of the country still may be hot and humid”. So for those areas where monsoon has not yet reached, I think the words “garmi hi garmi, paseena hi paseena” and this song is still very applicable 🙂 .

Let us now enjoy this song…

Hullo to all of Atuldom

Welcome to a post which will get a reaction of “Yeh gaana baaki hai???” And I am sure Atulji will put this song under the category “How did I forget to post this song earlier?”.

In the 70s, and for all the 43 years since, this song has been extremely popular. It is a love song where the young couple meet on the sly, in the middle of the night. It was sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar for a sweet seventeen Neetu Singh and a handsome/ charming 23-year-old Rishi Kapoor. It had very simple choreography by PL Raj that made the pair look very adorable. It was written by Gulshan Bawra and set to tune by our today’s birthday boy.

27th June our dear RD Burman would have turned 80. Like I have written in my post which accompanied the song to remember Kishore Kumar on his last birthday, how I wish Pancham or RDB had not left this world when he did. Then the treasure trove of wonderful songs would have been overflowing. But then that was not to be and we lost him in 1994. But there is still a treasure trove which gives us a lot of songs which if played continuously will last us for days on end. There is a song for every mood. Currently as I write this, I have chosen some random songs on amazon prime music which began with “Chaand Churaa Ke Laya Hoon” (‘Devta’, 1978) went on to “Meri Bheegi Bheegi Si Palkon Pe” (‘Anaamika’, 1973) followed by “O Maanjhi Re” (‘Khushboo’, 1975) and has another 20 songs which include “Bangle Ke Peeche Teri Beri Ke Neeche” (‘Samaadhi’, 1972), “Roz Roz Dali Dali” (‘Angoor’, 1982), and “Mera Pyaar. . . Shalimar” (‘Shaimar’, 1978). Now I must admit I love RDB songs and what I chose to hear were songs which I have not heard in a while. I am totally impartial in my selections. 🙂

Now on to today’s song. Thank you, RD Burman, for bequeathing to us a huge set of songs to remember you with.

Editor comment-With this song, Asha Bhonsle completes 2600 songs as a playback singer in the blog.

Song – Ek Main Aur Ek Tu, Dono Miley Is Tarah  (Khel Khel Mein) (1975) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Gulshan Baawra, MD – RD Burman

“Kahaani Ek Chor Ki”(1981) was produced by Balubhai Shah and directed by S Ramnathan for Deepak International, Bombay. This obscure “social” movie had Jeetendra, Vinod Mehra, Mausami Chatterji, Laxmi, Nirupa Roy, Aruna Irani, Asrani, Madan Puri, A K Hangal, Ranjan, Master Titu, Ranjeet, Bhagwan, Chaandrashekhar, Sundar, Jairaj, Shukla, Major Anand, Mukri, Viju Khote, Yusuf, Raju, Ratna, Madhumati Sharma, Uma Khosla, Manik Chaudhary, Master Laddoo, Chiku etc in it.

This movie, which I had never heard of, despite being in the midst of movie watching spree, had four songs in it.

Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. The song is sung mainly by Kishore Kumar, with a few words by Hemlata. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravindra Jain.

The song is ip synced by Vinod Mehra (disguised as a bearded old man) and Laxmi (I hope I have identified her correctly. This song , picturised in a public garden,is apparently a ruse meant to sow seeds of doubt in the mind of Asrani, who is also visible in the songs towards the end.

With this song, “Kahaani Ek Chor Ki”(1981) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Karishma ye kya meri jaan ho gaya (Kahaani Ek Chor Ki)(1981) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Hemlata, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

dekho khuda meharban ho gaya

Today’s song is from the film Aabshaar aka Waterfall-1953.

To me, songs from the fifty’s decade work like a breeze of fresh air or a cup of hot filter coffee. Discussing songs from the 30s and the 40s continuously gives me a feeling of being a very old man which, actually, I am ! But then, being so and feeling so, are two different things. Toying with a song from the 50s takes me back to my college days. If the song is of Kishore, Sugar gets added to the Coffee further.

Listening to songs of Kishore Kumar from his early years is truly a feast. His song from film ‘Aandolan’-1951 is my eternal favourite. Many times, when I am in a depression, tension, sad mood or simply bored, I like to listen to Vintage songs of Kishore Kumar. For this purpose I have his songs on my Mobile phone itself. His early film songs like Funtoosh, Bahaar, Paying Guest, New Delhi, Begunah etc are unparallelled. In fact, I had run a series of 21 songs under the title ” Vintage Kishore ” from 17-12-2013 to 18-1-2014, on this Blog.

Film Aabshaar-53 was made by Globe Pictures and was produced and directed by Hasrat Lucknowi. When the film’s shooting started, Ghulam Hyder was the composer. He recorded 3 songs of Pakistani singer Munawar Sultana. After partition GH used to come to India to compose music to films, and at the same time, he would compose for Pakistani films too. However, his films like Shahida-49, Beqasoor-50,Akeli-51 and Bheegi Palken-52 were all flops.

While doing music of Aabshaar in India, he was also doing film Gulnar of Pakistan. Meanwhile his health worsened and he abandoned film Aabshaar and left for Pakistan to complete Gulnar. Film Gulnar was released on 2-11-1953 and Ghulam Hyder died on 9-11-1953 !

After he left, the film was given to Bhola Shreshtha and Mohd. Shafi. Bhola composed 3 songs and Shafi did 2 songs, which included today’s Kishore song. His other song was by Asha Bhosle. Besides all this jhamela in Music, film Aabshaarearned a place in Hindi Film History, for being the First ever film to start the system of ” Guest artistes”, mentioned in credits. Film Aabshaar had the cast of Nimmi, Raaj Kumar, Lalita Pawar, kuldip Kaur, Iftikhar, Tiwari and others. It had Guest artistes- AshokKumar, Shyama, Om Prakash and Nigar Sultana. The film was released in Minerva Theatre on 2-10-1953.

The Hero, Raaj kumar was still a novice, this film being onlynhis third film. he started with Rangeeli-52, then came Anmol Sahara-52 and now this film. He was kulbhushan Pandit in real life. Before coming to films, he was a Police Inspector in Bombay police force. It is believed that he was removed from Police force because a criminal died during his investigation by Raaj Kumar.

RAAJ KUMAR ( 8-10-1926 to 3-7-1996 ) – the dashing Hero known for his Dialoguebazi. In Hindi cinema after Sohrab Modi,it was Raaj kumar whose dialogues were popular. He was famous for his favourite word ” Jaani “. The other day,while going through the discussions on RMIM group of Google I found an interesting question,” Why Raaj kumar is called Jaani,when he never used this word in his film dialogues ? “. On checking thoroughly,one found that it was only in the film Saudagar and Tiranga,Raajkumar had used the word Jaani ,only once each. Thats all.
Then why this word became his identity ? The answer is this word was used by Raajkumar in private conversations and interviews very frequently,that is why !

Raaj Kumar was Extra ordinary, in the sense that most of the time he behaved unlike other stars.

He kept his personal life in close wraps. He believed in keeping personal and professional lives separate. He sent his children to Boarding schools to keep them away from films,to get the best education,and not to become like other star children.
He had built a bungalow on Worli sea face and no one except his family was ever allowed inside. Whenever he left for work,a bunch of high pedigreed Dogs used to see him off till the Gate and welcome him on his arrival. He loved his Dogs very much. He used to say ” Insan kutta ban sakta hai lekin kutta Insaan nahi ban sakta. Ye bahot achhi baat hai.”

In any Filmi party, he used to carry his own bottles. He never ever asked any special favours or concessions from any Producer. He was very punctual and one hour afternoon siesta was a must every day. This used to be one of the conditions in his work contracts with the producers. His name was never involved with any actress.

Raajkumar acted in 73 films from Rangilee-52 to God and Gun-1995.

The cast of film Aabshaar-53 was a mix of old fading artistes and new generation stars. one of them was the daredevil Kuldip Kaur. She was born sometime in 1927 and brought up like a princess. Her spoiled Sardar husband wanted his wife to be like a modern westernized lady. He wanted his wife to learn swimming and rub shoulders with the club-going English elite based in Lahore and Amritsar.Once exposed to the club culture, Kuldip Kaur also started getting a taste of its dark side.

Since Lahore was a film city, Kuldip Kaur started dreaming about becoming a film actress. According to one story, Kuldip Kaur started admiring the professional qualities of actor Pran Nath, who was in film acting in Lahore since 1940, when he successfully performed the role of a hero in Punjabi film “Yamla Jutt” (The Simple Peasant).

By July and August of 1947, communal violence erupted into a full-fledged exercise in ethnic cleansing, with Muslims on one side and Sikhs and Hindus on the other. Both Lahore and Amritsar were engulfed in the worst sectarian violence in recent history.
Both Pran and Kuldip Kaur were made to leave Lahore in a jiffy, leaving virtually every belonging behind. Her own village being right on the border was also not peaceful. So Kuldip Kaur left straight for Bombay. According to one story, in order to impress Pran, Kuldip Kaur
decided to bring Pran’s stranded car from Lahore to Bombay. In a gesture of unprecedented daredevilry, she travelled from the safety of Amritsar to Lahore and drove Pran’s car first to Amritsar and then all the way to Bombay, where she handed over
the keys to a surprised but grateful Pran.

After leaving for Bombay, Kuldip Kaur’s contact with her parents and in-laws got diminished. On arrival in Bombay, Kuldip Kaur made up her mind to plunge headlong into the film industry. She was prepared to act in Hindi/Urdu as well as Punjabi films. The experts of film industry were of the opinion that her large piercing eyes and her flat chin made her an ideal choice for the role of a vamp.

The first ranking heroines of the time included Naseem Bano, Madhubala, Nargis, Suraiya and Nutan. Other heroines included Binarai, Shyama, Nimmi, Nirupa Roy, Meena Shori, Nigar Sultana, Veena and Kamini Kaushal. There was a shortage of ladies willing to perform the role of vamps.
One of Kuldip Kaur’s first films was a Punjabi blockbuster “Chaman” (1948). Within the same year Kuldip Kaur acted in two Hindi/Urdu films “Ziddi” and “Grahasthi“. All her 1948 films did well. After that she never looked back and went from strength to strength. At one stage Kuldip
Kaur was so busy in her film roles that for a long duration she did not visit Punjab.

In 1949, Kuldip Kaur worked in at least two films “Ek Thi Ladki” and “Kaneez”. “Ek Thi Ladki” was a blockbuster. Music Director Vinod composed some great tunes for this movie. “Kaneez” did not do too well.In 1950, Kuldip Kaur acted in two great musical Hindi movies “Samadhi” and “Adhi Raat” and did two Punjabi movies “Madaari” and “Chhai”. 1951 was a great year for her: she played the roles of vamps in six movies – “Stage”, “Rajput”, “Nai Zindagi”, “Ek Nazar”, “Afsana” and “Mukhra”. Her role in film “Afsana” received critical acclaim.

1952 was another great year for Kuldip Kaur. She worked in four movies – “Shisham”, “Nau Bahar”, “Baiju Bawra” and “Anjaam”. Again her role was highly praised in what became an all-time classic, “Baiju Bawra”. In 1953 again, Kuldip Kaur had four films – “Mashooka”, “Baaz”, “Anarkali” and “Aabshar”. Of these, “Anarkali” was a super hit and her role stole the limelight. 1954 proved another great year. She was featured in three movies – “Lal Pari”, “Gul Bahar” and “Daak Babu”. 1955 was one of her busiest professional years. She played the bad girl’s role in “Teer Andaz”, “Miss Coca Cola”, “Mast Qalandar” and “Jashan”.

In 1956, things slowed down a bit. She worked in two films, but none was released. Two of Kuldip Kaur starrers spilled over into the new year and were released in 1957. These were “Sheroo” and “Ek Saal”. In 1958 Kuldip Kaur had her roles in two films “Sahara” and “Panchyat”. In 1959, she did three films – “Pyaar Ka Rishta”, “Mohar” and “Jagir”. Out of these, one film, “Mohar,” was a great musical. Its music composed by Madan Mohan was simply outstanding. When Kuldip had fewer Hindi films in hand, she worked in Punjabi films.
1960 started as a reasonably good year for Kuldip Kaur. She had a Hindi film, “Maa Baap,” and a Punjabi film, “Yamla Jutt”.But during this very year, her life was cut short when she got some thorns in her feet and legs and she pulled those out by herself. True to her character of a daredevil woman, she did not seek medical advice immediately. Her sores became not only septic, but she contracted tetanus too, which was then incurable.

Kuldip Kaur died on 3rd February 1960. She worked in 69 films. ( adapted, with thanks, from apna.org )

Everything about this film seems to be special, including 3 MDs. Today’s song is composed by Mohd. Shafi. His name may not be very well known because mostly he worked behind the scene in helping Naushad in composing music. However, he too gave music to some films. Composer Mohd. Shafi ( 25-12-1925 to 30-4-1980 ) was one of those talented artistes of Hindi Film Music who was only used by others and never got enough credit for his work.He is honoured as “The original Arranger” in the industry.He was an excellent Sitar player. He started with Imperial Film company-where he played Bulbul Tarang. In 1937 he went to Calcutta, joined New Theatres and played Sitar in films Kapal Kundala-39 and Aandhi-40, as an assistant to Pankaj Mullick and K.C.Dey. He played sitar in film “Ujala”-42. In this film, the Hero-Prithviraj kapoor was shown as a Sitar player, hence the expertise of Shafi was fully utilised in this film.

Starting with film ‘Haqdaar’-46, he gave music to 19 Hindi films and 2 Marathi films. He worked with Naushad, as his assistant and Arranger, for 14 years.He was considered a ‘Dada’ in Background music.He gave Back ground music to about 70 films( for Naushad and others). For Mughal E Azam, K. Asif used to send his personal car to fetch him to studio. It was Shafi who gave the first break to Suman Hemmadi(Kalyanpur) in Mangu-54 and Hemlata in unreleased film Iraada.

Shafi had bought his first car when he was just 15 year old. He had a posh flat in Shivaji Park area of Dadar in Bombay. In the end , everything was gone. He had helped the families of Shakeel Badayuni and Ghulam Mohammed after their deaths. However in his last difficult days , except Rafi, no one came for his help. In the final few months, his memory had gone. His Begum ruefully said,” Good that he does not remember anything. All took his advantage and gave him nothing. There were more things to forget than to remember ! ”

It is said that the entire music of Sohni Mahiwal-58 was done by him. Naushad was sick during this period and did not attend even one recording. “Do hanson ka joda”and “Dhoondho dhoondho re saajna” Gunga Jamuna-61 were his creations. He used to give tunes to many composers too-whoever asked for help.

Let us now enjoy the song sung by Kishore Kumar, a couple of unidentified male voices and chorus.

Blog Day : 3970 Post No. : 15054

Peevesie’s mom is one blog regular who keeps in touch with me on phone almost on a regular basis. Nearly one month ago, she phoned to enquire whether my daughter was at Mumbai seeing that summer vacations had started in Mumbai colleges. So I informed her that my daughter, and also my wife, were on their way to join me for their respective vacations.

So it came as no surprise to Peevesie’s mom when my posts during the last month were reduced to a trickle.

Day before yesterday, Peevesie’s mom phoned me informing me that she had sent a late article in the evening and whether I would be able to post it. I informed her that I was on the job. She enquired why I was not posting my articles in the blog. I was posting guest articles all right but she was interested about my “man ki baat”” kind of articles. I informed her that my wife was still around and I would be able to post by “well” researched article only after I am away from the watchful eyes of my wife, which would be from the afternoon of 1 june 2019. 🙂

Then the talk veered to the TV programme that I was watching. She asked whether I was watching the world cup cricket match or the swearing in ceremony of Indian ministers. I informed her that I was watching the later, viz the swearing in ceremony.

We agreed that Indians were busy for the last one month and a half in General elections and now they would get busy following cricket world cup for the next one month and a half. Peevesie’s mom is not aware that I would stay busy after the cricket world cup as well, seeing that Premier Kabaddi League would start immediately after cricket world cup.

My wife stayed with me for nearly one month and she is leaving in the afternoon. So the excuse of there being no time for blogging will no longer be there for me. 🙂

There are lots of topics that I would have loved to discuss but I could not find time. I can even hold forth on a subject like “JCK ki khudaai” if I can find time and I apply my mind to it. 🙂 Yesterday, I was actually invited to watch “JCB ki khudaai” inside my workplace. 🙂

Right now, I was trying to post one article a day. Hopefully I will be in a position to be able to post several articles a day which used to happen so regularly in the past. I could try to turn the clock back a decade, when there used to be six or seven songs a day everyday. 🙂

“Badalte Rishte”(1978) was directed by R Jhalani for Vijayshree pictures Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Rishi Kapoor, Reena Roy, Asrani, A K Hangal, Pinchoo Kapoor, Shubha Khote, Urmila Bhatt, Deena pathak, Master Raju, Omkar, Madan Joshi, Pardesi, Raja Duggal, Makhan Singh, Chandar Dhaani, Chandra Prabha, etc in it, with new discoveries Shashi Bala Saxena and Rachna Bhatt.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

This song, the third song from the movie, is sung by Kishore Kumar and Suman Kalyanpur. Anjaan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

This “naa naa followed by haan haan” kind of “iqraar” song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Reena Roy.

This movie is from 1978, a year when I becan to watch movies with a vengeance. But I did not watch this movie and I was not aware of this song. So this song is a “new”song for me and I haerd this song for the first time today, more than four decades after this song was created.


Song-Tum chaahe hamko pasand na karo (Badalte Rishte)(1978) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

tum chaahe humko pasand na karo
par tum humko pasand ho
pasand ho
par tum humko pasand ho
chhaliya jo sau sau roop badle ae ae
wo humen kaise pasand ho
pasand ho
wo humen kaise pasand ho

chhaanv jaise baadal ki
dhoop jaise saawan ki
waise na jaane kis pal tum badlo
baat jaise sapne ki
rang jaise mausam ka
waise na jaane kis pal
tum badlo

deewaane ko kyun tadpaana
tum jo humen dil se pasand kar lo
apni to kismat buland ho
buland ho
apni to kismat buland ho
chhaliya jo sau sau roop badle ae ae
wo humen kaise pasand ho
pasand ho
wo humen kaise pasand ho

bin soche dil kho ke
pyaar mein paagal hoke
tum in bahaaron mein kabhi ee khoyi nahin
ye bahaaren bolengi
bhed dil ke kholengi
dil mein tumhaare siva to koi nahin
laakh manaaya dil na maana
hum kaise tumko pasand na karen
jab tum dil ko pasand ho
pasand ho
haan tum dil ko pasand ho
haan tum humko pasand ho
pasand ho
haan tum humko pasand ho
