Blog Day:

4481 Post No. : 15992

Hello everyone,

My appearances here on the blog are becoming increasingly infrequent, not unlike the cameo visits of an MP/MLA to his constituency post-elections. 🙂

I will not get into reasons for my long absence from here – no excuses. Mea culpa.

As usual, my appearance here marks a special occasion.
This time it has to do with Sahir Ludhianvi’s death anniversary.

The legendary poet & lyricist passed away exactly 40 years ago, on the 25th of October 1980.

What can I write about Sahir that I haven’t already written here in previous posts?

Hardly anything, to be honest.

I’ve written so much about him here, on many of his birth and death anniversaries, that anything I write will be repetitive.

And yet I cannot let the occasion go by without marking it with my small contribution here. It has almost become a ritual for me now. 🙂

One thing though.

I might be a big Sahir fan, but I´m nothing compared to Avinash ji.
As usual, he contacted me a few days ago requesting me to do a post for this occasion.

And, as usual, he sent me a song with lyrics.

That was all the motivation I needed to come out of hibernation. 🙂

Prompted by the lyrics of this song, Avinash ji also shared some of this thoughts with me. Wide-ranging reflections on society, politics, media, polarization and other topics.

I must say I agree with his views – sobering thoughts for these times.

So today, perhaps the best tribute I can give Sahir is not to repeat what I’ve said so often about his poetry and lyrics, but to just reflect on where we are as a society, much as Sahir often did.

So kindly bear with me as I share a few thoughts.

You don’t have to agree with me at all – that’s perfectly fine.
We can disagree – and still be friends. 🙂

So if Sahir were around today, how would he have felt about today’s India?

Indian society, politics, media, justice system. . . everything that touches the common man’s life.

Am specifically talking about the common man, because clearly Sahir used his voice most to speak up for the aam aadmi and underprivileged against the powerful.

I’m not sure Sahir would’ve had many kind things to say.

The religious divide he warned us about, the exploitation of women he lamented, the oppression of labor class that he railed against, the caste inequality that he talked about – all of them exist, and even flourish, to this day.

At least in the early years post-independence, one can argue that India was still struggling to find its feet. It was besieged with a whole lot of baggage, including mass illiteracy and mass poverty, a colonial hangover, lack of institutions and infrastructure.

Not that any of this is an excuse to justify oppression, but India was still a baby then, and had huge challenges to deal with on multiple fronts. It had a history of feudalism that ensured a master-slave mentality between the haves and have-nots.

Today, many decades later, it’s not unfair to expect India to have matured more as a democracy. With more concern for people’s rights and freedoms, a greater regard for the dignity of every individual.

And yet how much have we really matured as a democracy?

We keep thumping our chests, claiming to be the world’s largest democracy. But what should democracy really mean?

Many think it is the right to vote.
But is that all there is to a democracy?
The right to vote?
That’s too narrow and limiting a function of a democracy.

For me, in a democracy (as opposed to a dictatorship), each person has a voice, has a right to express an opinion.

In fact, voting is one way of expressing your opinion.
But it’s just ONE way.

When farmers go on a nationwide protest to draw attention to their issues, they are also exercising their right to express themselves.

When citizens protest on the streets against what they believe to be an unfair law, they are similarly exercising their right to express themselves.

As long as the protests are peaceful, they are legitimate in a democracy.

In fact, even before independence, Gandhi ji and other leaders led peaceful protests against colonial rule. So it is nothing new in India.

Many of Sahir’s songs are actually a protest against exploitation by those in power. Imagine if he were not allowed to express his thoughts!

Do we even want such a society?

Do we want everyone to be a blind conformist, not to have independent thoughts of his own, to be fearful of expressing himself, to kowtow to those in power without a murmur?

Then we might as well just call ourselves a nation of slaves.

There’s no point in a nation being free, if its people aren’t.

A nation is nothing without its people.

And people, whether some of us like it or not, have the power to think.

And when they think, they might not exactly think in our way.

Just because we have power, it doesn’t entitle us to stifle their voice.

That goes against the very grain of a democratic mindset, in which each person has a voice.

Unless the person is inciting violence, no one has the right to shut him up.

Not even the State.

If you disagree, put forth a better argument to make your case.

Don’t use your brute power to threaten, intimidate or (in the case of the State)  arrest those you disagree with.
Just because you can.
That’s sheer abuse of power.

This has nothing to do with any particular political party. Many of them are guilty in their own ways of suppressing people’s voices.

If they get their way, what will we end up with?

A people living in fear, afraid to express an opinion that might be frowned upon by those in power.

Everyone becoming a conformist – whether by choice, or out of sheer fear.
In short, a nation of sheep.

Is that what we want?

Let’s pause, and reflect on this for a moment.

Speaking purely for myself, I like to express my views rather openly, even if they’re not exactly reflecting popular sentiment of the moment.

If I have to check myself every time, out of fear for repercussions, I’d feel extremely stifled.

As Sahir would too.

There are many more topics one can reflect on (and Avinash ji’s thoughts traversed many of them), but I’m limiting myself to just this one topic today because it sort of syncs with the song for today. Need to also leave material for future posts on Sahir, right? 🙂

Today’s song from ‘Naach Ghar’ (1959) is  Sahir’s sarcastic piece of advice to society.  “Just observe things happening, but don’t  speak up. Just let them happen. Don’t upset the apple-cart. Even call the dark of night, “day” if you need to”.

I quite like the rendition by Lata Mangeshkar.

Music is by N. Datta, for whom Sahir wrote excellent lyrics also for ‘Dhool Ka Phool’, also a 1959 film. And for ‘Dharmputra’ (1961). So theirs was quite a fruitful partnership.

In fact, I’ve already written a post for a song from Naach Ghar (1959) on the occasion of Sahir’s 500th song on this blog – “Tere Shehron Se Raja Hamen Ban Hi Bhaley

That is a straightforward lament, today’s song is a sarcastic take on society.

I like both songs a lot, but then I’m biased towards Sahir so my opinion should be taken with a truckload of salt. 🙂

So please listen to the song, and judge for yourself.

In closing, I’d like to say Sahir was one of a kind.  They don’t make his type anymore.

I would prefer to stop counting the numbers, and rather go by the impressions in the memory. Well, it sounds so unbelievable that Nitin Mukesh turns 70 today. It seems like just a little while ago that we heard him sing for the first time in ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970). It was actually an unlisted song, in English. A song of good wishes and greetings – “Wish Me Luck”.

Then in 1981, when the song “Zindagi Ki Na Toote Ladi” from the film ‘Kranti’ was doing the rounds of popularity, my first impression on hearing this voice was – how come, was this song recorded earlier? The voice sounds so close to the voice of Mukesh, his father. Well yes, the voice is distinct, if one is listening carefully. But it also has an unmistakable shade of Mukesh’s voice.

Nitin Mukesh was born this day in 1950. Although he made his singing debut in 1970, his songs are few and far between in that first decade of his career. His more active years were the 1980s and 1990s. And even so, one cannot count his career as being prolific.

Today’s song is from the 1981 film ‘Nakhuda’. It was a big banner film of its time, produced by Yash Chopra for Yash Raj Films. The film is directed by Dilip Naik. The star cast for the film is Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Swaroop Sampat, Raj Kiran, Madan Puri, Javed Khan, Vikas Anand, Sudhir Dalvi, Bharat Kapoor, Madhu Malhothra, Mac Mohan, Yunus Parvez, Asha Sachdev, Jagdish Raj, Mahaan, Murlidhar, Bandini, Nandini, Umesh, Murari, Chand, Raj Verma, Chandu, Pardesi, Amarnath, Rajesh, and Rauf Khan.

The film has 6 songs. One song is a composition by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and also sung by him. The remaining 5 songs are from the pen of Nida Fazli, and have been tuned to music by Khayyaam. One song of this film is already showcased on our blog. This is the second song of this film to make its appearance here today. Lyrics for this song have been sent in by our dear Avinash ji.

On screen, the song is picturized on Raj Kiran and Swaroop Sampat. As the words indicate, this is an ‘expectant parents’ song, with the characters expressing happiness and love for each other, with the knowledge that another member of the family is on way.

Wishing Nitin Mukesh, a very happy birthday, and also many many more years of good health and active singing. All the best wishes to him.

Saga Of Sleepless Nights – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

aa jaao tadapte hain armaan
ab raat guzarne waali hai. . .

Good morning. It is 8 am, on Wednesday, the 10th June, 2020. We are onto the 162nd day of the year, and running through the 24th week. It is the 5th day (panchmi) of the waning moon cycle (krishna paksh) of the month of Aashaad. As per the Hijri calendar, today is the 17th day of the month of Shawwal.

The other important associations of today’s date are – it is the International Iced Tea Day – be sure to have a frosty glass of iced tea today. Today also is the International Ball Pen Day. This day in 1943, the first patent was issued in the US, for what would and has become the most popular writing instrument across the globe.

Notable Indian cinema association for today – it is the remembrance day of character actor and villain – Jeevan.
And the upcoming notable anniversaries are  – actress Shyama on 12th June and songwriter Prem Dhawan on the 13th June.

=======

This song is another one in the series of the sleepless nights saga.

aa jaao tadapte hain armaan
ab raat guzarne waali hai. . .

The song is from the 1954 film ‘Danka’. The film is a stunt cum costume drama which is produced under the banner of Goodwill Pictures, Bombay, and is directed by JP Advani. The cast of actors is listed as Nimmi, Amarnath, Mohna, Sundar, Heera Lal, Neelam, Shivraj, Uma Devi, Roop Kumar, and Om Prakash etc.

The film has eleven songs listed in the Geet Kosh. The songs are written by three lyricists – Jaan Nisar Akhtar, Nazim Panipati and Arshi Ajmeri. This song is from the pen of Jaan Nisar Akhtar. The music for this film is composed by Aziz Hindi. The singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar. Viewing the list actors, it seems most likely that this song would have been picturized on Nimmi.

The song is an expression of sadness, expressed by the lady, as she is calling out to her beloved, telling him about the ambiance of the lovely albeit a lonely night that she is experiencing without him. The moon, the stars, the clear skies of a calm and sad night, all are waiting with her, giving her company in this loneliness. The emotions of longing and eagerness to be with him are making this forlorn night a difficult time to pass. The mighty splendors of love turn into a sigh of melancholy in the lonely nights of separation, as the heart and the arms ache to be with the beloved. And when that happens, the mind of the poet will express itself in these beautiful verses.

This lovely song is a new discovery for me. I am hearing it for the first time, as I checked out the short list of songs that I have prepared for this series. The words, the melody, and the life infused in them through of the singing voice of Lata – all come together to create this lovely song of wait and longing.

Listen and enjoy this obscure melody from the golden era of Hindi film music.

Ed note:- With this song, Jaan Nisaar Akhtar completes 200 songs as a lyricist in the blog.

Hullo Atuldom

These days we have people from all walks of life connecting with each other over video calls, chat groups coming together on various online platforms etc. Similarly there are people who are going ‘live’ on Facebook and YouTube. On these ‘live’ days they showcase their talents in singing and dancing etc. I have watched a few and must say, rather admit, that this period of Lock-down is helping everyone rediscover their passion in singing and other art forms. All the best to all of them

Some videos of these ‘live’ acts are doing the rounds on the social media called Whatsapp. My husband forwarded me one such video which had the South Indian stalwart SP Balasubramaniam singing one of his popular songs from the 1979 Telugu movie ‘Shankarabharanam’.

That movie had some great songs which were based on Carnatic Ragas and told the story of an exponent of classical music Sankara Sastri (JV Somayajulu) and his ardent fan cum disciple Tulsi (Manju Bhargavi). The movie was written and directed by K Viswanath, had music by KV Mahadevan and lyrics were by V Sundararama Murthy. K Viswanath later remade this movie in Hindi as ‘Sur Sangam’ in 1985.

The Hindi version had Girish Karnad and Jaya Prada playing the roles of Pandit Shivshankar Shastri and Tulsi. The film made its debut on the blog on 19th May, 2013 with the song “Mai Ka Piya Bulaave Apne Mandirva“. (In that sense, it is like a seven-year challenge. 🙂 )

Our dear Sudhir ji had posted one song from this movie on the occasion of World Music day in 2017 “Aaye Sur Ke Panchhi Aaye“. The movie has eleven songs in all with “Aaye Sur Ke Panchhi Aaye” appearing as two parts in the movie. Then we also have the song Dhanya Bhaag Sewa Ka Awsar Paaya which was shared by Khyatiben in July 2014 as part of the build up to the 10000th post. Sudhir ji then later wrote a heartfelt tribute to Girish Karnad in his post on the song “Hey Shiv Shankar Hey Karunakar” last year.

I feel Sudhir ji has given us a good biography of Girish Karnad in his post last year. So I shall go directly to the next song from this film. In this song we see the Shastri ji teaching a small boy a classical bhajan. He is unaware that the boy is actually the son of his fan/disciple Tulsi. He feels that the little boy has a lot of potential to take over the mantle from him. In fact the second anatara shows the child singing what he has learnt from the guru and the mother envisions the guru himself. The song is in the vocals of the Mishra brothers – Rajan and Sajan Mishra, with Lata Mangeshkar. Lyricist is Vasant Dev with Laxmikant-Pyaarelal as the music composers. I must admit here that I have no knowledge about the Raag or Taal that this song is in. I expect knowledgeable readers to help here.

Thinking of the versatile actor Girish Karnad today on his 82nd birthday.

Song – Jaaun Torey Charan Kamal Par Vaari  (Sur Sangam) (1985) Singer – Rajan-Sajan Misra, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Vasant Dev, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Blog Day :

4281 Post No. : 15526 Movie Count :

4281

If there was a category like ‘post inspired by fellow Atulite’ or ‘post inspired by Atulite WA group chat’, this post would have been included under that category. This past Sunday there was a discussion between me and Peevesie’s Mom ji regarding the theme of the ‘Rangoli’ this week, which was Jaya Bhaduri/Bachchan, and so I messaged to her that I was expecting a post from her. Instead, she asked me that even I can do a post. And she also pointed out the birth anniversary of actor Jeetendra (and so if there was a song of Jaya Bachchan and Jeetendra, it would have been suitable for the post).

But then, few days back I myself had sent a song to Atul ji requesting to post it on the birth anniversary of another Jaya i.e. Jayaprada whose birth anniversary was on 3rd April. And that thought inspired (? 😊) me – Yes, I can do this post combining the anniversaries of both Jayaprada and Jeetendra – and yes, this song, which I liked, was already there and the film has not made a debut on the blog. And one more purpose was getting achieved i.e. to introduce ‘movie with the same title’ on the blog. So here is a song from ‘Tohfa’ (1984). One movie with the same title ‘Tohfa’ was released in 1947 and this movie has already been represented on the blog with seven songs covered out of total ten songs in it.

The 1984 film ‘Tohfa’ was directed by K Raghavendra Rao for Suresh Productions, Madras. It was produced by D Rama Naidu. The star cast includes Jeetendra, Sridevi, Jayaprada, Kader Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Mohan Choti, Urmila Bhatt, Leela Mishra, Jagdeep, Aruna Irani, Jayshree T, Master Rinku and others. Asrani makes a friendly appearance in this movie.

Dialogues for this movie are written by Kader Khan and editing of this movie was done by KA Marthand. The movie was passed by Censor Board on 21.01.1984.

The film has five songs (including one two-part song). Lyrics are written by Indeevar. Music of this movie is composed by Bappi Lahiri. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and SP Balasubramaniam have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar and lip syncing it on screen are Jeetendra and Jayaprada respectively.  Also seen in the picturization of this song is Master Rinku who gets to lip sync few lines in between the song in the voice not credited in the movie titles and also not mentioned in HFGK Vol-VI (1981-1985).

3rd April was actress Jayaprada’s fifty eighth (born on 03.04.1962) birth anniversary and here on the blog we are wishing her a belated Happy Birthday and a happy, healthy and peaceful life ahead.

Also, Jeetendra celebrates his seventy-eighth birth anniversary today on 7th April (born on 07.04.1942) and we wish him too a very Happy Birthday today and a happy, healthy and peaceful life ahead.

Now coming back to 1984. This year, Jeetendra and Jayaprada were seen together in the following movies;

S No Movie Name Music Director Passed by Censor Board
1 Haisiyat Bappi Lahiri 10.08.1984
2 Maqsad Bappi Lahiri 30.04.1984
3 Tohfaa Bappi Lahiri 21.01.1984

If we consider the annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list of 1984 as many as four songs from the movie ‘Tohfa’ were represented there. Today’s song ranked at number twenty-seven, while other songs ranked at number 3 – “Pyar Ka Tohfa Tera, Bana Hai Jeevan Mera” (title song), number 4 was “Ek Aankh Maaroon To”, and number twenty-six was “Gori Tere Ang Ang Mein’.

And if we consider movies with music composed by Bappi Lahiri, the annual list Binaca Geetmala of 1984, contained as many as eight movies – ‘Sharaabi’, ‘Tohfaa’, ‘Mawaali (1983)’, ‘Maqsad’, ‘Haisiyat’, ‘Wanted’, ‘Kaamyaab’, and ‘Qaidi’.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song, which I like most from this movie. In the movie, the second stanza of the song is repeated when Jayaprada dies, leaving a child behind to Sridevi and Jeetendra also present there.

With this song ‘Tohfa’ (1984) makes its debut on the blog.

Editor’s note:- This song happens to be the 200th duet of Lata and Kishore Kumar in the blog.

Blog Day :

4280 Post No. : 15521

In my last article, I had discussed playback singer and actor Shyam Kumar, who has acted in many Hindi films but remained unidentified for most of the Hindi film audience. In this write-up, I am presenting one more such actor who has made us to notice him in many films but remained unsung because he did very small roles in most of the films in which he got opportunity to act – mostly as a sidekick, a henchman, a doctor, barman, hotel manager etc.  Though his roles in most of the films have been very brief say, not be more than 5 minutes duration but whatever he did as an actor in varied roles, it was noticeable to the filmy audience. The actor is Keshav Rana whose face in the films may be familiar to many cine audience but may not be known by his name to them.

I had seen Keshav Rana in some of the films in the late 60s and early 70s during which I was active in watching films almost every week-end but I was not aware of his name.  His acting as a police inspector in ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972) in a comical situation has still remained in my memory.  I did not know his name until I started collecting the pictures of personalities connected with Hindi films during the last 5-6 years. It was a co-incidence that his image propped up when I was searching for something else. And the image of Keshav Rana emerged as a scene from a film ‘Dillagi’ (1966). That was the beginning of my work to identify him in many more films.

Not much information about the early life of Keshav Rana is available on-line. The only information I know from IMDb is that his full name is Keshav Singh Rana and he belongs to Faizabad in UP. From his filmography, it appears that he came to Mumbai to join the film industry in the later half of 1950s. His first film as an actor was ‘Anjaan’ (1956). His most active years was 1960s and 1970s when he worked in around 50 and 70 films, respectively. On a rough count, Keshav Rana must have worked in around 130 films during 1956-1986.

During the last fortnight, I have seen some important films with Keshav Rana’s  scenes under prominent banners like that of Shakti Samanta, Arjun Hingorani, Ramesh Sippy, J Omprakash, BR Chopra, Prakash Mehra etc. He did a variety of roles in the films but in most of the films, he was moslty typecast as  Police Inspector/Commissioner, Doctor,  Hotel Manager, Barman, a patron of mujra dances etc.  In others films, he mostly performed roles in negative shades and sidekicks to the main actors. Of the films of Keshav Rana, I watched, the only film in which he got a relatively longish role of Puran Bahadur in negative shade of a blackmailer was in ‘Dillagi’ (1966).

Keshav Rana excels in negative roles with a smiling face. But behind his smiling face lies his evil and manipulative designs to blackmail his victims. In this role, he generally avoids fighting and bloodbath in most of his films. He leaves these parts to other henchmen. For example, in films like ‘Dillagi’(1966) and ‘Muqaddar Ka Sikandar’ (1978), he takes out his Rampuri knife but never uses it. Instead, he entrusts his fellow henchmen to fight it out. His light comical roles as a police inspector in ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972) with Hema Malini (as Geeta) and as a barman in ‘Shaan’ (1980) with Amitabh Bachchan have been well appreciated.

I have uploaded an audio clip incorporating along with the song, the screen shots of scenes in which Keshav Rana appears in some of his important films. Check out the audio link below.

‘Qatl’ (1986) appears to be Keshav Rana’s last film after which he did not act in any film. I could not get any information as to what he did thereafter.

Keshav Rana had played a small role of a patron of a kotha dancer in ‘Ganga Maiya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo’ (1962), the first Bhojpuri film.  The film was directed by Kundan Kumar. The star cast included Kumkum, Ashim Kumar, Nazir Hussain, Tiwari, Bhagwan Sinha, Helen, Leela Mishra, Kumari Khanna (Padma Khanna) etc. The story, screen-play and dialogues were written by Nazir Hussain. Songs were written by Shailendra which were set to music by Chitrgupt.

I am presenting the song ‘Luk Chhip Badra Mein Chamke Jaise Chanwa’ from the first Bhojpuri film rendered by Lata Mangeshkar and picturised on Kumkum who is dancing for the patron, Keshav Rana.

Listening to the song in audio clip gives a feel of the dance in a nautanki (folk theatre) in the rural Bhojpuri region. And why not? Both Shailendra and Chitragupt hail from Bhojpur region of Bihar.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post was very popular in the 70s. We can hear it occasionally even now on the AIR’s Vividh Bharati. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist with RD Burman as the music director.

‘Bhanwar’ (1976) was directed by Bhappie Sonie and had a cast headed by Ashok Kumar, Randhir Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Aruna Irani, Asrani, Ranjeet, Kamini Kaushal, Nadira, Madan Puri etc. Two songs from this movie are already posted on this blog.

We are having the third song today to remember Parveen Babi – today on her 71st birthday. This beautiful lady was born in Junagadh and had her schooling in Ahmedabad. She made her debut opposite Salim Durrani (‘Charitra’, 1973) but her first success was opposite Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Majboor’ (1974). She had a good run at the box office and co-starred with all the heroes of her time. Her career spanned around 15/16 years from 1973 to 1988 with one movie releasing rather late in 1991. She led a lonely life after she stopped acting and withdrew from public eye. She passed away on 20th Jan, 2005.

Thinking of the beautiful Parveen Babi today with this song

I watched this movie much later in nineties (I think so). However, I remember, in my childhood, the two songs from this movie were very much popular viz. the title song “Satyam Shivam Sundaram“and “Yashomati maiyya se boley Nandlala” as they were frequently played on loud speakers and radio. The title song was also the most favorite number of almost all ‘orchestras’ which used to play it during ‘Ganesh Festival’ or other festival programs. However, I didn’t like both these songs then.

Rather I very much like the song “Chanchal Sheetal Nirmal Komal” and the song being presented today, maybe I heard them on radio during those years. Later on, when I bought the album of this movie (an audio cassette in late eighties) the song “Suni Jo Unke Aane Ki Aahat” also become my favorite song from this movie with all other songs.

When I checked the ‘annual Binaca Geetmala’ for the year ‘1978’ I found ‘Yashomati maiyya se…’ (as expected), at number seven and the song was, surprisingly for me, not the title song of the movie but it was “Chanchal Sheetal Nirmal Komal” ranking at number twenty-four of the list.

Well coming back to the ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ today we have two songs posted on this day ten years back as follows;

Blog

As one of the movies i.e. ‘Anpadh’ (1962) is already ‘Yippeeee éd’ on the blog we have ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ to be represented with a song on the blog today. The song I have selected today was noted long time back and was pending for posting. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Bhupendra. I like this song very much and particularly for those few lines sung by Bhupendra Singh which makes this song very very special of course with great singing by Lata Mangeshkar and so greatly composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal to the beautiful lyrics by Vithhal Bhai Patel.

Let us enjoy this wonderful song now …

(Note: – In the movie, this song appears in two parts. The video of the second part is not available now however full audio of this song is available).

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 16

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Aah yes, this one too. This iconic and popular song from the 1969 film ‘Jeene Ki Raah’, reappeared in a shorter version in the 1972 film ‘Baazigar’. Albeit the use of this song is somewhat casual, and does not seem to fulfill any purpose, symbolic or otherwise. Seems like a time filler, as one goes through the initial part of the film.

The original from the film ‘Jeene Ki Raah’ is a quite a well picturized song, with the reality of the situation moving into a surreal dream where the real village people performing the song are replaced by the hero and heroine, in heroine’s mind. All the songs of this film became very popular, and did contribute significantly to the rising graph of Jeetendra as a hero.

Fast forward three years later. The film ‘Baazigar’ in 1972, was a potential launch vehicle for Roopesh Kumar (cousin brother of actress Mumtaz), as a hero. He had made his debut in 1965, in supporting roles, both as a comic villain and in character riles. This was the first, and likely the only film in which he appears in the role of a hero.

Roopesh’s real name was Abbas Farashahi. He was born in Bombay on 16th Jan, 1946 (okay, just a week back was his birth anniversary, would have been 74). His father, Ali Asgar Farashahi had a very good restaurant and bakery business.  However, being involved in dramatics in school and college, he was more interested to make a career in films. With some support from his cousin sister Mumtaz, he started working in small supporting roles. His first appearance is in the film ‘Tarzan and King Kong’ in 1965.

He appeared in over 120 films from 1965 through 1995. The list of his films do make an impressive reading. Here is a partial list of his films from the period till 1980 – ‘Sapno Ka Saudagar’ (1968), ‘Aadmi aur Insaan’ (1969), ‘Jeene Ki Raah’ (1969), ‘Sharafat’ (1970), ‘Jeevan Mrityu’ (1970), ‘Kal Aaj Aur Kal’ (1971), ‘Andaaz’ (1971), ‘Raampur Ka Lakshman’ (1972), ‘Seeta Aur Geeta’ (1972), ‘Prabhat’ (1973), ‘Loafer’ (1973), ‘Insaaniyat’ (1974), ‘Zinda Dil’ (1975), ‘Nagin’ (1976), ‘Karm’ (1977), ‘Dildaar’ (1977), ‘Chacha Bhatija’ (1977), ‘Amar Deep’ (1979), ‘Jaani Dushman’ (1979), ‘The Great Gambler’ (1979), ‘Lok Parlok’ (1979), ‘Hum Paanch’ (1980) etc.

Hmm. . . interesting to note that he also appeared in ‘Jeene Ki Raah’, the original film for the song being presented today.

He also produced and directed two films – ‘Hai Meri Jaan’ (1991) and ‘Meri Aan’ (1993).

Roopesh Kumar passed away quite unexpectedly, at a young age of 49. He was attending the Filmfare awards program of 1995. He suffered a severe heart attack while at the program, and passed away on way to the hospital.

The song presented today is picturized as a game being played at a picnic. This is a picnic with a difference. The only participants are the leading lady, Vijaylalitha and her pet animals – a horse named Chetak and a dog named Tommy. These are the screen names of these pets. Their real names, as per the credits are Joker and Johny respectively. The song is being played on a gramophone, and the game – well you can view it in the accompanying video. The song seems to have been edited, as it appears to end abruptly after playing one full stanza and getting into the start of the second stanza.

Ah yes, this 1972 film makes its debut on our blog today.

Overall, a very casual re-use in my opinion.

Song – Aa Mere Humjoli Aa, Khelen Aankh Micholi Aa  (Baazigar) (1972) Singers – Lata Mangeshkar, Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal
Chorus

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

An iconic song from 1965 – absoute gem, absolutely unforgettable. “Kaanton Se Kheench Ke Ye Aanchal. . . Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai” from the 1965 film ‘Guide’. Created by the greats of that era – Shailendra, SD Burman and Lata Mangeshkar. And coming from a film directed by Vijay Anand, one is assured that the picturization would be superlative, which it surely is. The song continues to sustain its beauty even after more than five decades. It is such a genuine treat both visually and aurally.

Eighteen years after this song came into being, it was used again in the 1983 film ‘Qayaamat’. This film is one of the plethora of crime-and-punishment films that crowded the screens during the 1980s and 90s. The main roles are played by Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, Smita Patil, Jayaprada and Poonam Dhillon. Dharmendra and Shatrughan Sinha are close friends. But there is a falling out in their friendship, when Dharmendra is sent to jail, and he holds his police officer friend responsible for it. On returning from jail, he seeks to avenge himself for something that he considers as injustice meted out to him.

I have not seen the film and so will not be able to comment on the sequencing of this song within the storyline. Apparently, Jayaparada is the love interest of Dharmendra, and she appears in flashback in the movie. So there is some tragedy also related here. The occasion for the song is the birthday party of Shatrughan Sinha. Dharmendra is calling on a phone line to greet his friend. He finds out that Smita is about to sing a song at the party. He requests his friend to keep the phone line open so that he can listen. Then the song starts. It starts in the party, and almost immediately Dharmendra rewinds to the past where he sees Jayaprada singing in a very picturesque hillside setting. Rest of the song plays out in this flashback, returning to the party just moments before it ends.

Personally speaking, the song and its theme does not seem to fit into the birthday setting or even the hillside flashback interlude. It seems like force fitted, and completely out of place. But then that is just me.

The song has been reused in its original form. It is not re-recorded. So we get to enjoy the original audio, picturized on a different set of actors, in a different setting.

This song was identified and suggested by our dear Satyajit Rajurkar ji, for inclusion in this series. Thanks Satyajit ji.

 

Song – Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai  (Qayaamat) (1983) Singers – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Shailendra, MD – SD Burman

हो ओ ओ
काँटों से खींच के ये आँचल
तोड़ के बंधन बांधी पायल
हो ओ
कोई न रोको दिल की उड़ान को
दिल वो चला
आ आ आ आ आ आ

आज फिर जीने की तमन्ना है
आज फिर मरने का इरादा है
आज फिर जीने की तमन्ना है
आज फिर मरने का इरादा है

अपने ही बस में नहीं मैं
दिल है कहीं तो हूँ कहीं मैं
हो ओ ओ
अपने ही बस में नहीं मैं
दिल है कहीं तो हूँ कहीं मैं
हो ओ ओ
जाने क्या पा के मेरी ज़िंदगी ने
हंस कर कहा
हा हा हा आ हा आ
आज फिर जीने की तमन्ना है
आज फिर मरने का इरादा है
आज फिर जीने की तमन्ना है
आज फिर मरने का इरादा है

मैं हूँ गुबार या तूफाँ हूँ
कोई बताए मैं कहाँ हूँ
हो ओ ओ
मैं हूँ गुबार या तूफाँ हूँ
कोई बताए मैं कहाँ हूँ
हो ओ ओ
डर है सफर में कहीं खो ना जाऊँ मैं
रस्ता नया
आ आ आ आ आ आ
आज फिर जीने की तमन्ना है
आज फिर मरने का इरादा है
आज फिर जीने की तमन्ना है
आज फिर मरने का इरादा है

कल के अँधेरों से निकल के
देखा है आँखें मलते मलते
हो ओ ओ
कल के अँधेरों से निकल के
देखा है आँखें मलते मलते
हो ओ ओ
फूल ही फूल ज़िंदगी बहार है
तय कर लिया
आ आ आ आ आ आ
आज फिर जीने की तमन्ना है
आज फिर मरने का इरादा है
आज फिर जीने की तमन्ना है
आज फिर मरने का इरादा है
