Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 85
————————————————–

Atul ji has rightly mentioned in his post regarding BTYC posts coming up regularly, having taken precedence over other projects in the process. I think, on the other hand it is also helping bring movies bring closer to ‘Yippeeee’ and also helping movies getting noticed after an interval of couple or few years where the movies earlier were having some songs posted and took a back-seat thereafter without any reason.

In some cases where many movies made their debut ten years ago and were forgotten thereafter after getting only one song posted, the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ has been like a ‘boon’ for them. In turn it also gives a chance to readers to visit the songs of movie like these and recall their songs which were played then and also recall some fond memories if any.

Consider the case of one of the two movies due for ‘BTYC’ today – ‘Mahaan-1983’ which made its debut on the blog ten years back and so far, has only one song posted on the blog.

Let us have a look on the six songs posted on the blog ten years back on this day on
22.09.2010;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Raaton ki neend chheen lee aankhon ke intezaar ne Shokhiyaan-1951 All Songs covered

Mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main Aaj Aur Kal-1963 All Songs covered
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai Mahaan-1983 01 song posted

‘Mahaan-1983’ had some good songs like the one ‘Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai’ already posted on the blog and ‘pyaar mein dil pe maar de goli’ being the most popular song from the movie. ‘Ye din to aata hai ek din jawaani mein’ sung by Pancham and Asha Bhonsle was the other song frequently played and like then.

Music for ‘Mahaan-1983’ was composed by R.D. Burman.

I had not watched this movie then and have not watched it so far, so can’t say much about the movie.

When I noticed that this movie was due for BTYC today I went through its songs and I have selected one other song (which required more time from me to complete the ‘baat’:) ), but then noticed this lesser heard (I don’t remember to have heard this song earlier) song sung by Kishore Kumar and have selected this song for today’s presentation.

The song is lip-synced on screen by Amitabh Bachchan and also seen in picturization of the song is Zeenat Aman and also seen is a Puppet (of Ramdas Padhye the famous ventriloquist, I guess I am correct) with them.

‘Mahaan-1983’ had total seven songs in it all written by Anjaan and composed by R.D. Burman.

So far, only one song from ‘Mahaan-1983’ have been posted on the blog;

Song Posted On
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai 22.09.2010

I am not giving details about the movie and other songs too, and holding them for a detailed post with other song of the movie to be presented in the future on the blog.

(Unlike the song which finishes ‘aadhi baat’ I am not completing my ‘baat’ here)

Let us now enjoy today’s song from this movie. 🙂

(Lyrics noted are as per audio link which has three stanzas whereas the video link doesn’t have the second stanza as given in the audio link.)

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 69
———————————————————————————–

Ten years ago, the blog was covering six songs every day and seven songs every fourth day. So I was a bit surprised to note that “only” five songs were covered on 3 September 2010. But there awsa very good reasohn for that, which will become clear during our discussion here.

Here is the list of the five songs that were covered on 3n september 2010:-

Blog post no Song Movie-Year remarks
2896 Ab to aa jaao balam Poonam 1952 YIPPEED
2897 Kaare badraa tu na jaa na jaa Shikast 1953 YIPPEED
2898 Ye jawaani ye haseen raat Khuda khair kare Khoobsoorat Dhokha 1959 4 Songs discussed out of 7
2899 Saamne ye kaun aayaa dil mein huyi halchal Jawaani Deewaani 1972 YIPPEED
2900 Kyaa huaa teraa waadaa wo qasam wo iraadaa Hum Kisise Kam Nahin 1977 Blog century post. 7 songs discussed (out of 9)

We can see from the above that three out of five movies that were taken up on 3 september 2010 have got YIPPEED in the bblog by now. So that leaves us with just two movies that are eligible for “Blog Ten Year CHallenge” today (3 September 2020).

“Ham Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1977) is one of those movies. I notice that this musical blockbuster movie had made its debut in the blog on 3 september 2010. And thatsong that was discussed was a century song for the blog ! And the song was the National Aawrd winning song Kyaa huaa teraa waadaa wo qasam wo iraadaa . A movie making its debut in the blog with a blog century song ! It shows the musical calibre of the song in general and the entire movie album in particular.

Music lovers are unanimous in agreeing that “Ham Kisi Se Kam Nahin” (1977) had a stunning array of songs, that have remaiined popular to this day.

The movie had nine songs in it. Seven of them have been covered in the blog so far. Here are their details:-

Blog post no Song Date remarks
2900 Kyaa huaa teraa waadaa wo qasam wo iraadaa 3 september 2010 Debut song of movie. Blog century post
5892 Ye ladka haaye Allah kaisa hai deewaana 28 April 2012
8454 Chaand mera dil chaandni ho tum 2 August 2013

13400 Bachna ae haseenon lo main aa gaya 5 July 2017 Blog century post
14162 Aa dil kya mehfil hai tere kadmon mein 13 March 2018
14833 Mil gaya ham ko saathi mil gaya 10 January 2019

We can notice that another song from the movie, viz Bachna ae haseenon lo main aa gaya was also a blog century song. And the writeup of that song was a special writeup by Sudhir Jee. It gave details of the musicians who were involved in creating that musical masterpiece.

When the name of this movie crops up, my mind immediately goes back to the second half of 1977. My Matriculation examinations were due in February March 1978 and like a sincere conscientious student that I was, I was seriously busy preparing for that Board Examination of Bihar State Board. Those were the days when I had no distractions. The last movie that I had watched in a movie hall was “Zindagi Zindagi”(1972) in 1972 and after that I had not watched any movies in movie halls.

There was a radio set at home, a big valve radio, but that was out of order because mice had made their home inside the warm cozy cabinet of the TELERAD 4 band radio and had damaged the valves. And my father had very wisely not bothered to get the radio repaired. So no radio commentary and no Radio Ceylon and Vividh Bharati distraction either.

But filmy music blaring out of loudspeakers was a distraction no one could guard against. These days we talk of noise pollution and disturbance to people because of loudspeakers, but no one bothered those days. Playing film songs on loudspeakers in full volume day and night, no matter what, was the norm in those parts of India. And what was the movie whose songs were the most popular with those loudspeaker playing enthusiasts ? “Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin” ! I would be trying to concentrate on my studies and my eardrums would receive songs of the movie one after the other. What rubbish songs these are, The standards of Hindi movie songs have gone to the dogs- These were the thoughts that crossed my mind while receiving constant bombardment of songs of this movie.

Fortunately, the songs of this movie failed to distract me from my studies and I was reasonably well prepared when the final exams were held in early 1978.

Having appeared for the examination, it was time for the results. Marks obtained in the examination determined which college one joined. St Xavier’s College, Ranchi was the coveted college not only for Ranchi, but for entire Bihar. Getting admission in this college was considered a matter of prestige.

I had gone to my native place after the examination. I received a letter (or was it a telegram )informing me that I had passed in first division. Detailed marks would be known only later. My father, who was also there in the village, discussed this matter with a distant relative of his, who was a progressive villager and also the headmaster cum only teacher of the only Village school. We must go meet Father XYZ of the school ABC, the progressive villager suggested. So we went some six miles by walk, and met the Father. Our distant relative informed him that this kid, his close relative had passed Matriculation examination in First division. He needs to get admitted in Ranchi’s St Xavier’s college. You know the principal of that college, so please write a letter of recommendation. The father was reluctant saying only first division may not be enough, percentage of marks also matter. But repeated insistence by my relative forced him to act. He took out a small portable typewriter (I had never seen such a modern looking typewriter) and typed out a letter. He then took an envelope, sealed it after putting the letter inside it and on the top addressed in to the Principal of St Xavier’s College. We thanked him and went back to our village.

When I went back to Ranchi and got the detailed marksheet etc, I got the form of St Xavier’s college, filled it and submitted it there. My father had decided that the recommendation letter would be used only in case I failed to get admission on my own.

When the first list of selected candidates was put up on St Xavier’s College notice board, my name was very much there. So there was no need for that recommendation letter. Nevertheless, my father opened the letter and read what was written in the recommendation letter. We found out that the father had written a very nice letter highly recommending my case for admission. But I was happy that we did not have to use such means (sifaarish) to get admission.

After I got admission in the college, I got “freedom” under the impression that I had matured being a college student. I used this new found “freedom” quite irresponsibly, I must say. I started to watch movies by bunking classes. It was in this movie watching spree that I watched “Hu Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1979) during its second run, in 1978 or 1979, in a movie hall called “Sandhya” which was located on the same road where my college was located. By that time I had warmed up to the songs of this movie. I did not find the movie any great shakes though. I did not think then that Rishi Kapoor was really a better dancer than Tariq. I had my sympathies with Tariq.

Much to my good luck, I somehow survived by the skin of my teeth academically despite acting so recklessly. Today I have become so “mature” that I cannot spare time to watch most movies. How I wish I had some of my present “maturity” during late 1970s as well. 🙂

Today, exactly ten years after “Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1977) made its debut in the blog, here is another rollicking song from “Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahin”(1977). This song is sung by Kishore Kumar, with Asha Bhonsle chiming in towards the end of the song. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman. The song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Kajal Kiran.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Hullo Atuldom

“Arpan” (1983) was produced and directed by J. Om Prakash who passed away exactly a year and month ago on 7th August 2019. His movies had titles mostly starting with an “A”, for example “Aap Ki Kasam”, Aakraman”, “Aaye Din Bahaar Ke”, “Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke” etc. He was the presenter of two Rajesh Khanna starrers “Raja Rani” & “Aan Milo Sajna” both produced by Jagdish Kumar and director of the first-ever movie that his son-in-law Rakesh Roshan produced “Bhagwan Dada”. He was also the producer of “Aandhi”.

He began his career as a producer with “Aas Ka Panchhi” through his production house Filmyug in 1961 and followed it up with “Ayee MIlan Ki Bela” “Aaya Saawan Jhoom Ke” “Aankhon Aakhon Mein” etc turning director with “Aap Ki Kasam”. He was a clerk in a film distributors office in Lahore and ended up being a manager there before coming to Bombay post Partition of India.

He had a keen ear for good music that were lyrical and melodious. Of course his movies were mostly romantic and filled with family-emotions and values. At least that is what I remember from what I have seen in his films of the ’80s. He was associated with 23 movies from the ’60s to his last released in 2001- a Rahul Roy starrer called “Afsana Dilwalon Ka” post which he retired. Laxmikant-Pyarelal were the music directors of 12 of these movies .

The coming together of this triumvirate gave us ‘Suno Sajna Papihe ne’, ‘Saathiya Nahi Jaana’, ‘Achha toh hum chalte hain’, ‘Aadmi Musafir hain’, ‘Fauji gaya jab gaon mein’ etc etc. But if I am asked to choose songs that this association gave and make my playlist it will include ‘Palat meri jaan tere kurbaan’, ‘Yeh mausam aaya hain’, ‘Badra chhaye ke jhoolein pad gaye’, and some not-so-popular ones like ‘Somwaar ko hum mile’, ‘I am in love you are in love’, some soulful numbers like ‘Mere dushman tu meri dosti ko tarse’, ‘Yeh shama toh jali roshni ke liye’ and suddenly I will find enough songs to play for almost half a day and more. I notice that in mentioning songs that I like I haven’t touched a single movie of the ’80s like ‘Aas Paas’, ‘Arpan’, ‘Aasha’, ‘Apna Bana Lo’ etc.; these movies would feature as whole albums on my list.

So coming back to “Arpan”, I find that it is one-song away from Yyiippeeeehood. That is the reason to choose a song from that film to wish Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma on his 80th birthday. Of late he has been making appearances on some television channels as guest-of-honour to judge music contests. And that gives us, his fans, opportunities to hear anecdotes of his long musical career that began when he was around 12 years old. He was the son of trumpeter Ramprasad Sharma who was his first guru. He began learning to play the violin from the age of 8 and was further coached by the Goan musician Anthony Gonsalves and it is believed that “My name is Anthony Gonsalves” from Manmohan Desai’s ‘Amar Akbar Anthony” was the music duo’s way of acknowledging the tutor.

Pyarelal’s brothers were also musicians and his brother Gorakh Sharma was an expert at string instruments like Bass Guitar, Mandolin, Rubaab, Electric Guitar and had the opportunity to play in the song ‘Chaudvin Ka Chaand’ under Ravi’s music direction. Pyarelal’s other brothers Ganesh, Anand and others were all into music and Ganesh was a music director for movies made in the late ’60s through the ’70s.

“Arpan” may have been a movie which many followers of this blog would have given a miss thinking that it was Produced in Madras as that was the period when Jeetendra was deep into acting in films made by production houses of Madras and Hyderabad. Also the general story-line of the movie gives us that impression.

The movie was essentially a tearjerker where Reena Roy played Jeetendra’s fiance, who is forced to marry her boss Raj Babbar as punishment for having slapped him in the office and not allowing him to molest her etc. To further his intention, he kidnaps Jeetendra’s sister’s (Preeti Sapru) boyfriend (Shashi Puri) and keeps him captive till Reena agrees and marries him. This makes her a ‘bad character’ in the eyes of Jeetu’s mom (Dina Pathak) but only Jeetu’s friend (Sujit Kumar), sister and jija know the real reason for Reena’s marriage to Raj Babbar. The movie moves forward with Jeetu meeting Parveen Babi, marrying her, getting her pregnant etc. Then he happens to stumble upon Reena’s reason of marrying Raj post which there is misunderstanding with his wife, Reena becoming a widow, Parveen Babi loosing her baby so on and so forth. That is why I said that this was a tearjerker. Essentially a movie full of calamities for the heroine and it comes to an end with Reena consuming poison, making her way to Jeetu’s home and handing over her baby to Parveen Babi. Ultimate qurbaani so that her ex-lover can live happily ever-after.

Today’s song is a duet by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar, written by Anand Bakshi (who else) and on-screen couple are Preeti Sapru and Shashi Pur.

Wishing Pyarelalji(DoB 3 September 1940) a very Happy Birthday.

Lyrics (Based on audio link)

nain mile ae
uske baad
phool khile ae
uske baad
chain gaya aa
uske baad
pyaar hua aa
uske baad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubarakbaad
nain mile ae
uske baad,
phool khile ae
uske baad
chain gaya aa
uske baad
pyaar hua
uske baad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad

uske baad
uske baad
aayegi woh raat

aaaaa
aayegi woh raat
sajan sajani ka ghoongat kholenge ae
do nainon ke prem taraazu mein preetam ko tolenge

dekhenge chup chaap tumhein hum
sharm se kuchh na bolenge
yeh chup rehne ka waada
bhool na jaana rakhna yaad

teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubarakbaad

aakhir yeh taqdeer humaari
kab tak humse roothhegi ee
aakhir yeh taqdeer humaari
kab tak humse roothhegi ee
oonchi oonchi duniya ki
deewaar giregi tootegi ee
chori chori milne se phir r
jaan humaari chhootegi
iss badnaami ke darr se ae
hum ho jaayenge aazaad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad

uske baad
maine poochha uske baad

kya shaadi ke baad bhi saajan
aise geet sunaayenge ae
kya shaadi ke baad bhi saajan
aise geet sunaayenge ae
ya chhup baithhe door se sajni
ke mann ko tadpaayenge ae
sajni saajan se phir hum
miyaan biwi ban jaayenge
teri god mein munna hoga
mere honthon pe fariyaad
teri meri shaadi hogi
denge log mubaarakbaad

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 62
———————————————————————————–

Ten years ago, the blog was in cruise mode, merrily covering six songs every day. 28 august 2010, the day exactly ten years ago was no exception. First song of the day got posted at 7:01 AM and sixth post at 8 :34 AM !

Ten years back the following songs were posted on the blog;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Kyaa bataaun muhabbat hai kyaa Parbat-1952 All songs covered
Dil ke phaphole jal uthe seene ke daag se Parichay-1954 03 songs posted
Tum ek baar muhabbat ka imithaan to lo Baabar-1960 All songs covered
Meri aankhon se koyi neend liye jaata hai Pooja Ke Phool-1964 All songs covered*
Binaa badraa ki bijuriyaa kaise chamke Bandhan-1969 04 songs posted
Saath mein pyaaraa saathi hai Dil Daulat Duniyaa-1972 03 songs posted

Three out of six movies have since been YIPPEED. Other three movies are still up for grabs as far as today’s blog ten year challenge is concerned.

So, here is a song from “Dil Daulat Duniya” (1972), the latest of the six movies, and perhaps the most obscure of the six movies that were covered ten years ago.

Three songs from “Dil Daulat Duniya” (1972) have been covered so far :-

Song Posted On
Saath mein pyaaraa saathi hai 28.08.2020
Masti aur jawaani ho 18.07.2013
Ruk meri raani…. o monalisa 18.07.2017

Here is the fourth song from “Dil Daulat Duniya” (1972) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Lyrics is supposedly a joint effort of Hasrat Jaipuri and Neeraj (according to HFGK). Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan,

Only the audio of the song is available. Seeing that Rajesh Khanna and Sadhana were in lead roles, this song was almost certainly picturised on them. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.
Mr Anekant, our knowledgeable reader informs us that the song was picturised on Jagdeep and Helen.

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

This Week, That Year – 1

16Aug – 22Aug, 2010
————————————————-
Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 56
————————————————–
Reviewing the week of Aug16 – Aug22, I just thought of doing the analysis in one more way – to just see where all we had been and what all were we listening to during the time from the start of the blog on 19Jul2008 to 22Aug2010. Interesting things appeared.

It all started with thought – what is the distribution of songs across the decades in the week under review. I did a quick sort check and came up with the following data. This week we had seen 31 songs posted in all. And these 31 songs were distributed according to decade as follows,

1930s

1

1940s

4

1950s

16

1960s

9

1970s

1

The distribution is quite as expected – of the 31 songs, 25 songs (80%) are from the decades of 50s and 60s. Goodness, aren’t these the most favorite years of practically all listeners of Hindi film music.

The thought then prompted me to take a view of the total songs posted thus far, i.e. till 22Aug of 2010. By the end of that week, the total number of posts was 2827, and the total number of songs posted was 2928. The 100 odd more songs are due to multiple songs being included in a single post – multipart and multi version songs.

And the results are pretty much along the same lines, as expected. The overall distribution for all songs till 22Aug2010 stands as follows,

1930s 26
1940s 228
1950s 972
1960s 1069
1970s 511
1980s 89
1990s 30
2000s 5

The overall % of the songs from 50s and 60s dips a little – down to 71%, but still, overwhelmingly most songs are still coming from that era. There is a sizeable interest in the 1970s – 17%. I am sure that is due to the fact that we are still listening to our favorite artists from the Golden Era. To approximately round off, the 30s-40s component is 8% and for 80s and beyond the allocation is 4%. In tabular form, as follows

30s-40s 8%
50s-60s 71%
70s 17%
80s+ 4%

Well, much as expected – the distribution of the listening and selection preferences of this group. Well, not maybe every week, but I will try to revisit this analysis after 2/3 months, and see the evolution of our selection preferences with time.

Let’s do the numbers for that week. Total posts that came on board that week is 31. Number of films represented is 27, with four films making a double appearance. Four films had made their debut that week, and no films were yippeee’d. However, since that week over the past 10 years, 24 of these films have been yippeee’d and seven remain pending. Also, that week we had one dot day.

The special event recorded for that week was a blog century. I have now inserted another column in the chart to track the appearance of century milestones. On 16 Aug 2010, the song “Jaan Pehchaan Ho” from the 1966 film ‘Gumnaam’ clocked in on the 28th century milestone for the blog. It was the 2800th post to come on board. Going back to revisit some of these posts, it is very enlightening. It is a delight to recall and refresh the large amount of trivia that is now silently sitting in the electrons on this blog’s storage. About this post – this was a special request post that Greta Memsaab had written for the blog. At 2800 posts, this was only the 12th guest post till then, and the second on by Memsaab. Poring through the article and the comments, one learns and re-learns so much more about these songs – names of the guitarists, name of the dancers, the fleeting appearance by Helen, the fact that the lead in dance music is lifted from the song “Teen Kanastar Peet Peet Kar” (‘Love Marriage’, 1957), and that an ad by Heinken has used this song – the entire lead in music and the mukhda of the song, in the voice of Rafi Sb. It is a revival experience par excellence.

And so, getting into this week. Seven films, and eight challenge opportunities for the team members. I must acknowledge that members are sending in challenge contributions – lyrics and sometimes articles too. And we need more of that. Gear up, and happy posting.

‘Raagini’ of 1958 is one of the two films pending for today’s date. The song being presented is a stage dance song, and as the performance rolls to the end, one finds that it is actually dream sequence song. It is being played out in a dream being experienced by Padmini, as she visualizes herself to be Anaarkali, dancing in the court of Prince Saleem, that is Kishore Kumar, the person she is love with.

The lyrics of this song are penned by Qamar Jalaalabaadi, the music is composed by OP Nayar and the singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.

Lyrics for this song have been sent in by Prakash ji.

With this post, the film ‘Raagini’ moves closer to gaining yippeee status, with just one more song pending.

[Author’s Note: This post is the beginning of a weekly series that is about the story of this blog. This story has already been appearing as the weekly challenge information being shared on Whatsapp group. In discussion with Atul ji, we agreed that the weekly presentation of this evolving story has become as good as a post by itself. And so we decided that the weekly information post on Whatsapp will also be duplicated as a post on the blog itself, making a more firm documentation of this story. Hence, this series.]

Blog Day :

4410 Post No. : 15804 Movie Count :

4354

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s post is because of this song. This song reminded me how amused I used to be whenever I saw it.

Atulji has mentioned the starcast of “Tohfa”, the movie of which the above song is. He has mentioned that he felt the props comprising of saris was imaginative. If he had seen the movie he would have understood the reason for the ‘Sari’ prop. I am sure there will be some followers of the blog who have not seen the movie and definitely some followers would have seen. They will remember that in the scene preceding the song Jeetendra has gifted Jaya Prada a decent looking sari as he is appreciative of her way of taking care of his mother in his absence. She is in awe of him and when his mother asks her if she would like to be her daughter-in-law she fantasizes the song. Like I mentioned to my mother “ek saree mila toh itne saree khwaab mein aa gaye”; how typical!!!! (I had wanted to write all this in the comments that day, but reserved it for this post)

In all this Jeetendra has not been consulted by his mother (Urmila Bhatt). If she had, he would have told her that he was in love with another girl from the village. Now who is this other girl? She is Lalitha (Sridevi) who is also Janaki’s (Jaya Prada’s) sister. Janaki has been doing odd jobs around the village and helping out in households so that she can look after herself and her sister. Her only aim being that her sister should graduate and have a good life. Without knowing that Lalitha and Ram babu (Jeetendra) are already in love Janaki entrusts Rambabu with the responsibility of helping Lalitha with her studies. This gives them enough time to flirt and romance. One such meeting of Rambabu and Lalitha happens near a pond and he accidentally (may be on purpose too, don’t remember) kicks her Kalash (brass pot) into the water. The song that follows has numerous Kalash as prop. I am sure this idea was borrowed from the super-hit song of “Himmatwala” (1983).

Both these movies had many things in common.
(1) Music director was Bappi Lahiri. (2) Lyricist was Indeevar. (3) Hero was Jeetendra. (4) Both were made in South essentially as remakes of Telugu movies. (5) Both were directed by K. Raghavendra Rao: ‘Tohfa’ being a remake of his Telugu hit ‘Devatha’ released in 1982 & ‘Himmatwala’ remake of ‘Ooruki Monagadu’ a 1981 release. (6) Kadar Khan was the dialogue writer of both. (7) Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and S P Balasubramaniam were the playback singers.

The only thing that I would love to find out is who was the choreographer for the two movies. These movies had some unique dance steps almost equivalent of Aerobics. That may be an explanation of why Jeetendra looked so fit in those movies. 😉

A post about either ‘Himmatwala’ or ‘Tohfa’ or any of the few 10-15 movies of that period that were made with Jeetu by these South Indian makers will be incomplete without mentioning one more common factor- the trio of Kadar Khan- Shakti Kapoor- Asrani in the supporting cast. Jeetu used to say that he used to like working in the southern industry setup as they were very organized and punctual in their working. That may also be an explanation to why so many of Jeetu’s contemporary actors also tried their luck down south with positive results.

This discussion about the South Indian film industry is getting a bit too long and I am missing the purpose of this post.

As I was writing I made a discovery:- “Himmatwala” is yet to make a debut on the blog. I couldn’t believe it and made a call to Atulji to confirm. Now I am in a fix, which song to have with this post. The song from “Tohfa” which I have described or its inspiration from “Himmawala”. And both songs feature the birthday girl under discussion. She was beautiful in both.

So here is wishing the beautiful Sridevi (13 august 1963- 24 feb 2018) was with us and turned 56 on 13 August 2020. Let us think of her with this colourful song that made her the darling of the audience. The purists may have run down the songs of this period but we must admire the effort and imagination in erecting a set with pots and cart wheels. Also I admire Sridevi that she has danced barefoot in what must have been scorching hot sand.

Hullo Atuldom

Happy Gokulashtami to all followers of this blog.

Yesterday we had a song which should have been categorised under “How come this has not been posted as yet?” The song with this post can also fall under the same category.
It is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar, written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and Rajesh Roshan is the music composer. It is from the 1982 Ravi Tandon directed “Khuddar”.

This song depicts the ‘dahi-handi’ aspect of Gokulashtami. ‘Dahi-Handi’ draws inspiration from the antics of Lord Krishna or Balgopal who was rather mischievous and used to stealthily enter homes in Gokul and eat up freshly churned Dahi (curds or yogurt in modern parlance) and Makhan (butter). That is why one of his names is Maakhanchor. There is a lot of stories attached with the ‘leela’ of Balkrishna:- how the ladies of Gokul go complaining to Yashoda maa about Balkrishna eating away their dahi and makhan and how he used to say “Maiyya mori main nahin maakhan khaayo”. We have three versions of this song from movies made in 1959, 1977, and the version whose link I have given here was the first ever that came in 1942.

“Mach gayaa shor saari nagari” has Amitabh Bachchan making the human-pyramid and Parveen Babi in typical Maharastrian attire is out there either distracting him or encouraging him (don’t remember). We can see Vinod Mehra, A K Hangal enjoying the proceedings from the verandah of their chawl. Madhu Malini (permanent sister in many movies) walks in halfway through the song.

gagri aake peechhe dagri re
arre mach gaya shor saari nagri re,

jaane kya karta agar hota kahin gora
jaake Jamuna mein zara shakal dekhe chhora
jaane kya karta agar hota kahin gora
jaake Jamuna mein zara shakal dekhe chhora

bindiya chamkaati raste mein na ja
manchala bhi hai Gokul ka raja
manchala bhi hai Gokul ka raja
pad jaaye nahin paala
Radha se kahin lala
phir royega Govinda
maaregi aisa phanda
gardan se baandhegi chunri re
mach gaya shor saari nagri re,

I cut my HFM teeth in late 1960s when old order was giving way to new. Old order meant Rafi as the male playback singer of choice, Shammi Kapoor as the heart throb, and Shankar Jaikishan as the music directors of choice for big banners. In a matter of a few years or so, the musical order was turned upside down. When the dus settled, we found Shammi Kapoor being replaced by Rajesh Khanna, Rafi by Kishore Kumar and Shankar Jaikishan by R D Burman.

I became a young music lover sometime in mid to late 1960s. From being used to Rafi voice blaring from loudspeakers, I found a new male voice beginning to blare out of loudspeakers. Alongwith rest of the population, I too was mesmerised by this voice. The vesry first time I listened to the voice of Kishore Kumar, i loved it. the song was the iconic “Padosan”(1968) song-“mere saamne waali khidki”.

Rajesh Khanna meanwhile took the movie world by storm with “Aradhana”(1969), and that was followed by a string of hits. I would have loved to watch all those Rajesh Khanna songs, but I ended up watching “Haathi Mere Saathi”(1971) and “Apna Desh”(1971), that is all. By the time my movie watchin spree began in right earnest in june 1978, Rajesh Khanna had lost his crown as the first superstar of Hindi movies. That crown had passed on to Amitabh Bachchan.

Unlike Rajesh Khanna, Kishore Kumar never lost the crown of the top male playback singer. He continued to hold this crown troughout his life, till 1987. What longevity ! It is not easy to hold on to the top spot, as we see from the example of Rajesh Khanna. If Kishore Kumar could do it for close to two decades till his death, they this speaks highly of his durability and saleability. In fact, I feel that he almost singlehandedly held up the quality of playback singing during 1980s after all other leading playback singers had passed away.

On the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s 91st birth anniversary today on 4 august 2020 here is an archtypical Rajesh Khanna song sung by Kishore Kumar. The song is a duet from “Shahzaada”(1972). This movie was directed by K Shankar for Amar Chhaaya, Bombay. The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Raakhee, Madan Puri, Veena, Karan Dewan, Pandari Bai, Jairaj, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Gulshan Baawra, Badri Prasad, Halam, Varalakshmi, Shreeram Shastri etc in it. The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Shehzaada”(1972) to appear in the blog. the song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. The song is penned by Rajinder Krishan. Music is composed by RD Burman. This roothhna manaana genre of song is picturised on Rajesh Khanna and Raakhi.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.


Song-Na jaiyyo chhod ke na jaiyyo meri raani (Shehzaada)(1972) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-R D Burman

Today (4 August 2020) is the 91st birth anniversary of Kishore Kumar (4 August 1929- 13 october 1987). And incidentally, today is the 4400th day for the blog !

Three articles from three regulars discussing Kishore Kumar have already appeared on the blog today. It is interesting to note that all the three regulars decided to discuss three songs from the decade of 1980s.

The golden era of HFM, which began in 1949, ended in 1980. People who lived through the golden era can notice a palpable lack of overall quality in HFM after 1980. There were quite a few reasons for that. I have given this matter some thought and I have come up with some interesting observations. I will use those observations some other time in some other article. Here I will mention it in brief that the golden era of HFM began when Indian classical base (melody based) was wedded with western classical base (symphony based). This marriage, which gave us the best of both the worlds, got dissolved in 1980. Western symphony was replaced by western cacophony while lyrics of the songs were dispensed with.

Another reason was gradual demise of the doyens of HFM maestroes. Shailendra (1966), Roshan (1968), Shakeel Badayuni (1970), Jaikishan (1971), Geeta Dutt (1972), Madan Mohan , Vasant Desai, S D Burman (all 1975), Mukesh (1976) and Rafi (1980) left the scene one after the other creating big voids. With the demise of Rafi on 31 july 1980, the HFM golden era literally ended.

If we still have a few songs worth listening to in 1980s, then they are invariably the creations of those who began their careers during the golden era and they had the musical wherewithals to create quality music. It was the old guard that kept creating good music in 1980s.

One will notice that majority of memorable songs of 1980s were sung by old guard, viz Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. This state of affairs continued till late 1980s when Kishore Kumar died in 1987. R D Burman, who was sticking to Kishore Kumar confided in Amit Kumar that his music was unlikely to remain the same with the absence of Kishore Kumar.

Ironically, the music director who was the most responsible for the demise of HFM golden era, viz Bappi Lahiri, was also the music director who created the most number of memorable songs post 1980s. And no prizes for guessing who were the singers in these songs. When Bappi Lahiri was not creating forgettable (but saleable) disco numbers, he was also creating golden era quality songs with Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle.

Unlike the golden era hit songs, these 1980s era songs were light on lyrics, making them chaalu songs. Still, these songs became popular because the singers could carry off these songs with inane lyrics with aplomb.

There are several Bappi Lahiri chaalu songs that Kishore Kumar turned into timeless classics. Some examples are movies like “Namakhalaal”(1982), “Sharaabi”(1984), “Aaj Ka Arjun”(1990). Incidentally , all these songs had Amitabh Bachchan in lead roles.

Then there were Jeetendra starrers where the lyrics were of even more “Chaalu” variery. But Kishore Kumar turned even those songs into classics. In these songs he often had the company of Asha Bhonsle, who could be regarded as his female version among playback singers, as far as singing versatility was concerned.

As a tribute to Kishore Kumar, here is the title song of “Tohfa”(1984). This movie was produced by D Ramanaidu and directed by K Raghvendra Rao for Suresh Productions, Madras. This archtypical Madrasi movie (Hindi remake) of 1980s had Jeetendra, JayaPrada, Sridevi, Kadar Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Mohan Choti, Urmila Bhatt, Leela Mishra, Jagdeep, Aruna Irani, Jayshree T, Master Rinku etc in it, with friendly appearance by Asrani.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Bappi Lahiri.

The song is picturised on Jayaprada and Jeetendra. They are seen prancing, with Saris of all varieties forming the background as well as the prop. Quite an imaginative picturisation.

And as observed earlier, the song on its own is nothing much to write home about. Still, this is one of those songs that had stood the test of time and it is still regarded as one of the popular songs of its era. Much of the credit for this has to go to the singers, viz Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle.

Just like R D Burman’s music suffered after the demise of Kishore Kumar, bappi Lahiri’s music too failed to reach the same heights in the absence of Kishore Kumar’s vocals. It shows the calibre of Kishore Kumar’s singing abilities who with his Midas touch could convert a seemingly mediocre song into a timeless classic.

Personally, I found the music of 1980s bearably enjoyable, mainly because of songs like this. And unsurprisingly, most such songs had the voice of Kishore Kumar in them.

Enjoy this song. This song demostrates that one can act silly and it can be still enjoyable and fun for all concerned, provided you have the calibre to carry it off.
