#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 168 # Missing Films of 1972 – 20#
——————————————

Today, I bring on blog the last of 1972 films that were not yet available on the blog. Yes, some films are still missing, as is detailed later below, but for those films, the songs and other information is not available so far.

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Zameen Aasmaan’ (1972). This movie is the 129th film of 1972, taken in alphabetical order, as per the Geet Kosh. There are a total of 131 movies listed for 1972. There are two more movies after this one. At 130 is the movie ‘Zaroorat’. This movie has no songs. And the last movie alphabetically in this list is ‘Zindagi Zindagi’ which had already been Yippeee’d on the blog.

Movies with the same title ‘Zameen Aasmaan’, were also released in 1946 and in 1984. Both these movies have been represented on the blog with their songs. I guess that the today’s movie was a forgotten movie even though its music was composed by Kishore Kumar and its’ having a decent star-cast too.

‘Zameen Aasmaan’ was directed by A Veerappan for AV Films. Eesmayeel Shroff was the Chief Assistant Director. Veerappan was also the producer of this movie. He also wrote the story and the screenplay. He developed the story based on the Malayalam play and film – ‘Kadal Paalam’ by KT Mohammed. Dialogues were written by Rajinder Singh Atish. Editing of this movie was done by R Bhaskar. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.07.1972.

The star cast of the movie is listed as Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Rekha, Yogeeta Bali, Ramesh Deo, Indrani Mukherjee, Achala Sachdev, Dulari, Ashim Kumar, OP Sharma, SK Sharma, Kiron, Sushil Kumar, Master Tarun Kumar Gupta, Baby Charulata, Gemini Balu, Sharad  Kumar, and others.

This movie has six songs written by two songwriters – Indeevar (five songs) and Anand Bakshi (one song). Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, and Asha Bhonsle were the playback singers for the songs. Music was composed by Kishore Kumar. Basu Chakraborty was the assistant music director. Here is the list of songs in this movie as provided in HFGK – Vol-V (1971-1980).

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s Lyricist
01 Aankhen Tumhaari Do Jahaan … Kishore Kumar Indeevar
02 Kisne Yahaan Kisko Jaanaa… Asha Bhonsle Indeevar
03 Ham Tum Chaley, Tum Chaley. Ham Chaley Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle Anand Bakshi
04 Ik Raat Ki Hai Baat, Main Soyi Thhi Akeli Asha Bhonsle Indeevar
05 Na Ro Ae Mere Dil Yahaan, Tera Nahin Hai Ye Jahaan Lata Mangeshkar Indeevar
06 Are Girgit Jaisa Aaja Ka Insaan, Badle Pal Pal Rang Kishore Kumar Indeevar

With this post today, ‘Zameen Aasmaan’ of 1972 makes its debut on the blog.

Let us review the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding today’s movie which is the 129th film in the alphabetical list of films of 1972, as per Geet Kosh. For brevity the list given below includes the list of movies missing on the blog and list of all movies from the last post “Hai Jo Teri Tamanna Hai Wohi Meri Tamanna” from movie ‘Ustaad Mera Naam’ (which is the 125th in list) to today’s movie song-post.

*Notes:

  1. Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johnny’, ‘Hunterwaali’, ‘Lady James Bond’, ‘Miss Chaalbaaz’ (Tingoo Agent 000) and ‘Rajdhani Express’ seem to be unavailable as of now.
  2. There is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’, ‘Jaadu Nagari’ and ‘Maaya Darpan’ as mentioned above.

So, with the addition of today’s movie, we have added all the ‘so far’ missing movies (of which the songs are available) from the year 1972 on the blog. This year i.e. 2022, we are celebrating the fifty years of 1972 movies. We have brought on and discussed at a glance 20 movies that were missing from our blog, and for which songs are available. Also, the 21st such movie of 1972 viz., ‘Kavi Sammelan’ is being discussed as a separate series, bringing in all the available ‘poetry based’ songs of that movie.

Today’s song is a special song as this song is sung by the legendary Lata Mangeshkar under the baton of Kishore Kumar – the music director. I think this is the only song she sung under the baton of Kishore Kumar (hope I am correct). The song is lip-synced on screen by Yogeeta Bali. (Other than Yogeeta Bali we can see a dog and a horse in the picturisation of this song). Lyrics are by Indeevar and music is composed by Kishore Kumar.

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

Let us now listen to the today’s song, and welcome ‘Zameen Aasmaan-1972’ on the blog.

Song – Na Ro Ae Mere Dil Yahaan (Zameen Aasmaan) (1972) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Indeevar, MD – Kishore Kumar

Lyrics

na ro ae mere dil yahaan

na ro ae mere dil yahaan
tera nahin ye jahaan
fursat kise hai ae
samjhe jo koi
tere aansuon ki zubaan
na ro ae mere dil yahaan
tera nahin ye jahaan
fursat kise hai
samjhe jo koi
tere aansuon ki zubaan
na ro ae mere dil yahaan

deewaani duniya rishte dilon ke
daulat se kyon jodti hai
deewaani duniya rishte dilon ke
daulat se kyon jodti hai
samaajon ke jhoothe rivaazon ki khaatir
apnon ke dil todti hai
koi nahin saath dega aa
sab to hai parchhaiaan
aa aa koi nahin saath dega aa
sab to hai parchhaiaan
aisa gar hai jahaan
to jeene ke qaabil kahaan
fursat kise hai ae
samjhe jo koi
tere aansuon ki zubaan
na ro ae mere dil yahaan

aise jahaan mein rahe koi kaise
lage pyaar par jis mein pehre
aise jahaan mein rahe koi kaise
lage pyaar par jis mein pehre
gila auron se kya lagaaye hain dil par
apnon hi ne ghaav gehre
kho ja andheron mein aise ae ae
jaise gagan mein dhuaan
aa aa aa kho jaa andheron mein aise
jaise gagan mein dhuaan
zaroorat hai teri kisey
mita de tu apna nishaan
fursat kise hai ae
samjhe jo koi
tere aansuon ki zubaan

na ro ae mere dil yahaan
na ro ae mere dil yahaan
tera nahin ye jahaan
fursat kise hai ae ae
samjhe jo koi
tere aansuon ki zubaan
tere aansuon ki zubaan

ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ

ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ
तेरा नहीं ये जहाँ
फुर्सत किसे है
समझे जो कोई
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान
ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ
तेरा नहीं ये जहाँ
फुर्सत किसे है
समझे जो कोई
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान
ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ

दीवानी दुनिया रिश्ते दिलों के
दौलत से क्यों जोड़ती है
दीवानी दुनिया रिश्ते दिलों के
दौलत से क्यों जोड़ती है
समाजों के झूठे रिवाजों की खातिर
अपनों के दिल तोड़ती है
कोई नहीं साथ देगा॰॰आ
सब तो हैं परछाइयाँ
आ आ आ कोई नहीं साथ देगा
सब तो हैं परछाइयाँ
ऐसा गर है जहाँ
तो जीने के काबिल कहाँ
फुर्सत किसे है
समझे जो कोई
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान
ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ

ऐसे जहाँ में रहे कोई कैसे
लगे प्यार पर जिस में पहरे
ऐसे जहाँ में रहे कोई कैसे
लगे प्यार पर जिस में पहरे
गिला औरों से क्या
लगाए हैं दिल पर
अपनों ही ने घाव गहरे
खो जा अँधेरों में ऐसे॰॰ए
जैसे गगन में धुआँ
ज़रूरत है तेरी किसे
मिटा दे तू अपना निशां
फुर्सत किसे है
समझे जो कोई
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान

ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ

ना रो ए मेरे दिल यहाँ
तेरा नहीं ये जहाँ
फुर्सत किसे है
समझे जो कोई
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान
तेरे आंसुओं की ज़ुबान

‘Santosh’ (1989) was an East-n-West Movies presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan. Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. Story of ‘Santosh’ was written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by VV Kamat (assisted by Ashok Naik). Cinematography was done by Rajan Kinagi. The movie was passed by Censor board on 28.02.1989.

The star cast of the film includes Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar, and others.

This movie has seven songs written by two lyricists. Santosh Anand wrote six songs and Manoj Kumar contributed one song. Following is the list of songs of this movie.

Sl. No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Posted On the blog
01 Are Logon Tumhe Kya Hai Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar
02 Bataao Tumhen Pyaar Kaise Karoon Santosh Anand Nitin Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle
03 Kahkahon Ke Liye Santosh Anand Mahendra Kapoor
04 Yoon Lagne Lagi Aajkal Zindagaani Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar, Nitin Mukesh 27.06.2018
05 Aaj Main Bechain Hoon Santosh Anand Mahendra Kapoor, chorus 09.01.2022
06 Bansi Waale Ne Gher Lai Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar
07 Tera Allah Beli Manoj Kumar Mahendra Kapoor, chorus

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hullo Atuldom

6th February 2022. Sad day for lovers of music. The news which all music fans didn’t want to hear came through a friend’s message on Whatapp. Our dear Sur Saraswati – Nightingale – Miracle of Nature – Swar Kokila (all such epithets fell right and square on her slender shoulders) is no more. She was a power house of talent that came in a small package. She was the face of Indian film music who rode the classical music vehicle with as much ease as light music. Bhajans rendered by her were what the nation woke up to for years and were the inspiration for singers of the later generation to try their hand at classical and devotional songs.

She was a fan of cricket for the longest time and Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt who was pouring his heart out on a TV channel said that she was ill yesterday or else she would have been the first to tweet a congratulatory message to the victorious Under-19 team for winning the World Cup. That is one thing that has amazed me about the Grand-Lady of Indian Film music. She took to Twitter, Facebook and other social media as if she was a person of the now-generation. She was very active on social media.

A cross section of Indians have been pouring their heart out and putting out tweets but one that struck me most was “We will miss you and hope the void left by you doesn’t fill”.

A journey which began in the 40s at the age of 13 has come to an end after giving voice to songs in close to 1884 films in Hindi and about 30 films in other languages. A person who sang for Shobana Samarth in 1949 and Kajol (Shobana Samarth’s grand daughter) in the 90s. A person who brought tears to the eyes of the then Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru with her rendition of “Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo“. A person who has given us songs for every mood is being bid farewell from this mortal world as I write this (those are the visuals playing on all the news channels). She has been draped in her trademark white saree with a simple border. She has been brought to Shivaji Park with full state honors and the nation is in two-day mourning for this Bharat Ratna.

Like she has said in her song “Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai” we have her voice with us forever. And the song playing at this point is “Ae Mere Watan Ke Logo“” with Lata Didi saying “Ab Hum To Safar Karte Hain’ —-prophetic.

For this post I was looking for one of her last Bollywood song. We have covered Lata Didi’s last released songs in the course of Atul ji’s series ‘Yearwise Review’. So, the song with this post is not the absolute last but one from the last decade of her journey in Bollywood.

It is from the 2005 release ‘Lucky’ which had the tagline ‘No Time for Love’. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Adnan Sami, written by Sameer and tuned by Adnan Sami.

Like she has sung

rahen naa rahen hum,
mehkaa karenge
ban ke kali,
ban ke sabaa,
baage wafaa mein

Her mehak will be with us forever

Alvida Lata Mangeshkar

Lata Mangeshkar – 1929-2022

A lifetime of music passed by, and then today morning, that voice of the century descended into the forever sleep, from where no one returns. The fears have been there for almost a month – the time she spent in the hospital. And there were prayers also – prayers by millions – millions who have loved and revered this voice that has been singing for the past almost seventy five years. This voice will not be heard again.

And yet, this voice will continue to ring till there is time, and there are lovers of music. Her legacy and her memories will keep alive. Thousands of songs that have been sung by her and recorded – these songs will continue to please the ears till there music lives. The voice will live forever.

नाम गुम जाएगा
चेहरा ये बादल जाएगा
मेरी आवाज़ ही पहचान है. . .

Goodbye Didi. . . it has been a terrific inning – 1929 – 2022.

================================================

Recently when I updated my list of pending songs shared earlier, I noted that the top two songs are from the movie ‘Lekin’ (1990). Both the songs were shared long back in 2012. Since these were pending since long, I thought I should try to add a write-up to them and send for posting. I like all the songs from this movie very much, and I must have listened to them innumerable times.

I was staying at Kota (Rajasthan) then when the music for this film was released. I had bought the cassette for this film on 12.01.1991. (The film was dedicated to the ‘girl child’). Music was released by HMV in September’1990. That is now almost thirty-one years back now. Hushh…!! how time flies? … 😊 to me its only like few months back. Only thing is now I didn’t get to listen these songs regularly because the cassette-recorder-player has gone out of order and cannot be repaired now. (Maybe I need to buy a new one. Otherwise, I am afraid that the cassettes will also deteriorate).

I like the songs of this movie very very much, but I did never get to watch this movie. When I checked on internet the movie was already available, so I decided to watch it, and had watched it few weeks back. Sadly, the film available seems to be a re-recorded one and not an original print. Also, this version has the songs deleted from it. And that means all songs are deleted from this version. Though videos of the songs are available separately. But their absence from the movie takes out all the joy of enjoying the movie. But nevertheless, one can enjoy this movie for the mystery it contains.

I liked this movie very much. It has all the ingredients that I love to watch – the palaces of Rajasthan, the ruins, the sand-dunes, train journey, the inside view of the special coaches of the train (in this case it the first class coach, I think), library, books, mystery wrapped in time, wandering soul (we can see that 😊 in the movie), and above all the captivating and mesmerizing music – classical as well as folk of Rajasthan – the thrill of those ‘Ragas’ -the poetry in the songs – the divine singing voice – all these takes one to a different planet. I would not like to spoil the interest of those who intend to watch this movie, so I will not write much about the movie in details.

This movie is said to be inspired from one the famous Rabindranath Tagore story ‘Kshudhit Paashaan’ (Angry Stones).
[Auth. Note: I do have this story book in my library and this I realized when I read about this movie based on this story and then I remember, yes, I think I have this book. Then I look for it in the shelves and it was there. No mystery in this 😊 my younger daughter always pushes me to read the books that I have collected and not to add newer ones unless I read the older ones all 😊.]

Coming back to the today’s movie now. ‘Lekin’ was directed by Gulzar for Dinanath Kala Mandir. Hridaynath Mangeshkar and Bal Phoole were the producers of this movie. It was presented by Lata Mangeshkar. The star cast includes Vinod Khanna, Dimple Kapadia, Amjad Khan, Alok Nath, Moon Moon Sen, Vijayendra Ghatge, Beena, Manohar Singh, Ram Mohan, Ajit Vachhani, Sunil Advani, Shabir Abbas, Masood Akhtar, Yash Sharma, GP Singh, Bashir Khan, Mohafiz Haider, S Madan, Harmeet Singh, Umesh Vyas, Mansi Upadhyay, Sapna Awasthy, Rashmi, Ahmed Siddiqui, and Baby Shabana Khan. Hema Malini made a guest appearance in this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.08.1990.

Story of this movie is written by Gulzar. Gulzar also wrote the screenplay, dialogues, and lyrics for this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Sadanand Shetty, Ravi and Aadinath Mangeshkar.

This movie had eight soundtracks as mentioned on the blurb of the cassette and the details are given below.

Coming back to the today’s song it is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and on screen lip-synced by Dimple Kapadia. This song is beautifully picturized in the ruins and deserts of Rajasthan. I am sure listening to this song will give one a lot of pleasure and will take one far away in the ‘desert’. I stayed at Kota for almost eight years, but never visited the ‘desert-triangle’. I wish I will visit them soon. Though during my stay, I visited palaces and forts at Jaipur, Udaipur, Chittorgarh, Bundi and at Kota. Whenever I visit there, I used to jokingly say my friends that in my previous birth I was a King and ruled there 😊 …

As mentioned above only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 26.10.2012 just few months more and this movie will complete a decade on the blog. Let us now listen to the today’s song.

aakash bada boodhaa baba

मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ
मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ
इस राह से कोई गुज़रा नहीं
कुछ चाँद के रथ तो गुजरे थे
कुछ चाँद के रथ तो गुजरे थे

मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ
मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ

दिन रात के दोनों पहिये भी
कुछ धूल उड़ा कर बीत गए

दिन रात के दोनों पहिये भी
कुछ धूल उड़ा कर बीत गए
मैं मन आँगन में बैठी रही
मैं मन आँगन में बैठी रही
चौखट से कोई गुज़रा नहीं
मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ
मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ

आकाश बड़ा बूढ़ा बाबा
सब कुछ बाँट के जाता है

आकाश बड़ा बूढ़ा बाबा
सब कुछ बाँट के जाता है
आँखों को निचोड़ा मैंने बहुत
आँखों को निचोड़ा मैंने बहुत
पर कोई आँसू उतरा नहीं
मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ
मैं एक सदी से बैठी हूँ

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 165 # Missing Films of 1972 – 10#
——————————————

We are adding the missing movies of 1972 on the blog. Obviously, these are the movies which are itself obscure type or which remain lesser-known movies. I think the today’s movie is one such movie. Because I do not remember to have heard about it earlier or read about it or ever listen to its songs earlier.

Today’s movie is ‘Naag Panchami’. We already have one movie titled as ‘Naag Panchami’ from the year 1953 on the blog.

The fim is directed by Babubhai Mistry for Mewad Films, Bombay. The star cast includes Prithviraj Kapoor, Jayshree Gadkar, Ashish Kumar, Jayshree T, Mridula, Shashikala, Ratnamala, Johny Whisky, Manhar Desai, Sudarshan Dheer, Satyendra Sharma, Vatsala Deshmukh, Roopali, Kavita, Maya, Arvind Pandya, Shree Bhagwan, Shrikant Soni, Pal Sharma, Anandkand Tiwari, Radheshyam, Sunita, Payal, Renuka Rachana, Poonam, Dhreerendra Kumar Thakur, Chandan, Vijay, Shiraj Khanna, Shashiraj, Swarnachandra Gupta, Anand Kumar, Naghma, Sushil Kumar Maurya, Yogesh Khanna and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 04.02.1972.

This movie has four songs penned by Indeewar. Music for this movie is composed by Ravi. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Sajne do angana rachne do mehendi Asha Bhonsle
02 Main nadiyaa ki dhaara, baahen teri kinaara Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar
03 Ae nagin jaa bas apne dwaare Lata Mangeshkar
04 Naa jaane tere bhaag mein kya hai …Bharat ki naari hai tu Kishore Kumar

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar. On screen Jayshree Gadkar and Ashish Kumar are lip-syncing for Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar’s voice respectively. This song a duet song is a romantic song. On listening the song, the beginning of the song may remind one well known composition of music director Ravi. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

With the today’s song this movie ‘Naag Panchami’ makes its debut on the blog.

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 alphabetically after adding the today’s movie. Today’s movie is at number 84 in this list.
Ed Note: In the interest of brevity, the list is collapsed to show the films onward from the previous episode in the series , namely ‘Mehmil’ plus the ones that are without any available information or songs. Readers may refer to previous episodes of this series for earlier details – “Kitna Hai Soona Soona Mehmil Hamaara Re“.

Blog Day :

4720 Post No. : 16430

Welcome all to this post. We are discussing movies who made their debuts on the blog in its initial days and then they remain with ‘only one song posted’ on the blog for a long time or specifically more than ten years of gap.  Under this condition the today’s movie is ‘Sharaafat’ (1970)’.

This movie made its debut on the blog with its only known song (I think so) ‘Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine’ on 02.11.2008. So, today after a gap of 4614 days (including 20.06.2021) or twelve years, seven months, and nine days we are going to listen the second song from this movie.

‘Sharaafat’ was directed by Asit Sen for ‘Seven Arts Pictures, Bombay’. It had Ashok Kumar, Dharmendra, Hema Malini, Soniya Sahni, Jagdeep, Abhi Bhattacharya, Kanhaiyalal, Sapru, Shabnam, Zebunnisa, Roopesh Kumar, Indrani Mukherji, Sundar, Niranjan Sharma, Poornima, Paro Devi, Jankidas, Brahm Bharadwaj, Chandrima Bhaduri, Kundan, Kesho Rana, Mohan Choti, Birbal, Tun Tun, Raj Kishore, Ajay Kashmiri, Prakash Mishra, Machhar, Dilip Dutt, Ratan Gaurang, Wajid Khan, Ravikant, Shefali, Bilkis, Jagdish Bhalla and many others.

This movie had six songs which are all female solo songs, five sung by Lata Mangeshkar and one solo by Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics for all songs of this movie are written by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Following is the list of songs of this movie.

S.No. Song Title Singer
01 Mera rastaa rok rahe hain ye parbat anjaane … Lata Mangeshkar
02 Duniya ne sun li hai chhupke apni prem kahaani … Lata Mangeshkar
03 Pehle naa dekha jaise kisi ne, aise mujhe aaj dekha Lata Mangeshkar
04 Jeewandaata jagat pitaa tum Lata Mangeshkar
05 Sharaafat chhod di maine Lata Mangeshkar
06 Main manaaun bhalaa kis tarah aapko Asha Bhonsle

I do not remember to have watched this movie but I was always aware of its most popular song ‘Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine’. And for today’s post when I was looking for the other songs from this movie, I thought I will listen all and then decide. I listen to the today’s song and found it somewhat familiar, so I am presenting this song today.

The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and the gorgeous looking Hema Malini has lip synced it on screen. We can also see Dharmendra in his characteristic charming style of those years.

I hope you will also like this today’s song as I liked … it is something special 😊

Hullo Atuldom

20th June, a Very Important Date in the calendar of ASAD. It was on this date, a few decades ago, a person dear to this blog was born. Correction, I would like to change person dear to this blog was born with person whose brainchild this blog is. Person whose love for music led to the genesis of this blog. Person who is kind enough to take us along on this musical journey. Thank you so much Atul ji for this blog. Wish you A Very Happy Birthday. Hope the great times continue and we Atulites are able to keep pace with you

Today I am presenting a song from a movie which made its debut on the blog in 2011 (almost 10 years ago, 15-20 days away from the 10-year mark) with this song “Ye Pyaar Bhara Dil Hai Muhabbat Ka Khazaana” by Sudhirji. This post has the general storyline of the movie. The next song from this movie was “Pyaar Beqaraar Hai Pyaar Ki Awaaz Sun” by Nahm ji. That post has two versions of the same song. So that makes it 3 songs from an album having around 10 songs.

I find that YouTube is not helpful as there seems to be no video links to the movie’s songs, only audio links. Here is the next song which is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar, written by Shyamlal Shams and Kamal Mitra is the music director.

The movie is ‘Yahudi Ki Beti’ from 1956, which had a cast of Daljit, Anita Guha, Tabassum, Tiwari, Helen, Maruti, Al Nasir, Rajan Haksar, Wazir Mohammed Khan etc. Nanubhai Vakil is credited as director of the movie. (I am sure that there are knowledgeable followers of the blog who will be able to provide more details about the movie, its director, music director, lyricist etc.)

The thoughts expressed in this, very simply-worded song, indicates that it was lip-synced by the heroine of the movie – Anita Guha. The first time I consciously saw her in a movie was in ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’, when I saw the movie on TV sometime in the 80s. Then I was informed that she was the actress who played Rakhee’s mother in ‘Sharmilee’ and Rajesh Khanna’s foster mother in ‘Araadhna’. Then I slowly realized that I have seen her in quite a few movies like ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’, ‘Anuraag’ etc. I have read somewhere that Prema Narayan, who was popular in the 70s and 80s (of ‘Armaan’, ‘Ponga Pandit’ and numerous such movies) is the niece of Anita Guha. Anita’s husband was Manik Dutt – an actor who was seen playing supporting characters in movies till the late 80s.

More trivia about Anita Guha some other time. Let us get on to the song and once again wish our Dear Atul ji on his birthday. Wish him many more milestones in life as well as on the blog.


Song – Chori Chori Dil Mein Ye Kaun Aa Raha Hai (Yahudi Ki Beti) (1956) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Shyamlal Shams, MD – Kamal Mitra

Lyrics

chori chori dil mein ye kaun aa raha hai

Blog Day :

4702 Post No. : 16406 Movie Count :

The other day, Madhuri Dixit’s birthday was celebrated on the blog and it inevitably reminded me of many of her songs. This is one song from the film ‘Ram Lakhan’ (1989), which is never out of mind, though has been out of sight for many years now. This was in 1989, and my mother and elder sister were already fans of Anil Kapoor. I was not a fan and would call him some uncharitable names, not unprintable but will not mention here. The era of seeing every Amitabh Bachchan film was over, and Subhash Ghai, the producer director of this film was a big name. He was so big that he got to name a few of his heroines, rechristen them literally. Meenakshi, Madhuri and Manisha, Mahima etc. He was fixated or superstitious about naming the heroines beginning with the letter ‘M’. I have seen very few Anil Kapoor songs appearing in the blog. Some newer songs are here, but the many films he did in his earlier period, especially of his jodi with Jackie Shroff, are not here at all. Same is the case with Madhuri Dixit.

Film magazines like Stardust and Filmfare, were still the popular medium of reading and gaining knowledge, useful as well as not so useful. I can say for sure that it has been decades, since I have seen a film magazine in any language. Even doctor’s dispensaries don’t have them. I personally don’t know anyone who buys/reads any such magazines, or if they grace the center-table in any living rooms nowadays. Quite a fall for these publications really. Absence of television has helped, so that I am not even aware of the winners of Filmfare awards these days.

The song in question is a well composed, written and sung, sort of a filmy situation ‘bhakti’ song. Madhuri Dixit is the highlight, as only she could be. Laxmikant-Pyarelal have given a dekho, a ‘retro’ of ‘Pakeeza’ soundtrack and their own ‘Sargam’ soundtrack in the interlude music. The team of Anand Bakshi & L-P were a pro at creating such situational songs. And Lata Mangeshkar was still the backbone of any L-P score, be it the films of the South or Bombay.

What is happening here is the engagement party of Madhuri Dixit, sort of, with Amrish Puri’s son. Jackie Shroff is a police officer, playing the title role of Ram and Anil Kapoor is the younger brother Lakhan. Madhuri is forced to accept this alliance by her father Anupam Kher, with no help from Anil Kapoor, who is away on training as Police Inspector. So, when Madhuri is asked to perform in front of the guests, she starts the bhajan, remonstrating with the Almighty, and complaining to Ram present in the party, directly. Another highlight of the song is the way Jackie Shroff is seen to be preening (in his fine feathers) almost, as the addressee and the brother of Lakhan.

Anyway, when it is Lata Mangeshkar, who is crooning “Ho Ram ji ee eee”, and Madhuri Dixit is on screen, performing, who can stay unmoved.

Blog Day :

Remembering Nargis today on the 91st anniversary of her birth.

Born in the year 1929, she made her debut in films as a child artist as early as 1935. And then starting with 1942, she moved on from child roles to adult roles. As I was searching for a song from her early years in films, I chanced to see this song, which is really very playful and chirpy. And listening to the song made me wonder why has this song so far been away from this blog.

Nargis is all of 21 years of age, as she is singing and trying to hold back Karan Dewan (her husband in the film) from going to office. The words of the song are simple and endearing and the whole ambiance of the scene is very charming. There is a childlike entreaty in the pleadings of the newlywed, as she recounts her hours of boredom when the husband is sway to office. And the husband too is in part a willing accomplice, only that near the end of the song, his elder brother (role played by Shyam Chadha) calls him to leave for office, and he has to perforce make a quick departure from the song and the beseeching wife.

The film is ‘Chhoti Bhabhi’ from 1950. It is produced under the banner of Filmkar Limited, Bombay and is directed by Shanti Kumar. The cast of actors in the film is listed as Nargis, Karan Diwan, Shyam, Kuldip Kaur, Gulab, Shyama, Suraiya Chaudhary, Yakub, Johar, Baby Tabassum, Gyani Jugnu, G Sarang, and Khushdil. Yes, the Johar we see in this list is IS Johar, doing a small role here.

The film has nine songs, all of them are from the pen of Qamar Jalaalabaadi. The music is from the duo of Husnlal Bhagatram. It is 1950 – and the voice of an equally young singer, Lata Mangeshkar, sounds so wonderful. The rendition by the singer and the performance on the screen, both are really superb. The outcome is a naughty playful song that is really endearing.

The film has a total of nine songs, of which seven songs are already showcased here. This is the eighth song to find its place on our blog today. With one more to go, this film is ready for the Yippeee category.

Blog Day:

4698 Post No. : 16390

———————————–
This Week, That Year – 6
———————————–
23May – 29May, 2011

The seven days in May 2011, from 23rd to 29th. I am sure the world was extremely busy, as it always is, and there would be no dearth of info about what the then current trends and news were. Seems like this week was kind of low key and ordinary in terms of world events. But let us not go there. 🙂

Let us take on the story of that week, on our blog. Let us do the numbers first, and then I will take the readers through some very interesting details about the films that featured during that week.

It was kind of a slow week, by the then current standards. We had two dot days and just 21 posts. A super number comparing to what we are going through at current times. But with the then norm of 40+ posts in a normal week, this week was definitely slow. An average of 3 posts per day, or 4 posts in case we discount the dot days.

20 films got showcased that week, which means that in 21 posts, there is only one case of a film appearing twice. So 20 films and 21 posts, with the 1977 film ‘Aakhiri Sajda’ contributing two songs. Of the 20 films, no less than 9 were debut songs – films making their first appearance on the blog. The films making their debut that week are

Kaarwaan e Hayaat (1935)
Wahaan (1937)
Dr Kotnis Ki Amar Kahaani (1946)
Pagle (1950)
Geet Gaaya Pattharon Ne (1964)
Baawarchi (1972)
Sankalp (1974)
Faaslaa (1974)
Aakhri Sajdaa (197)7

As far has completion report is concerned, we had one film celebrate its entry into the Yippeee club. The 1957 film ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ completed its list of songs contributed to the blog.

Also, in the 21 posts, total of 23 songs were included. This happens with we have a multi version song, and both (or all) versions of the song are accommodated in the same post. In this week, we had two posts that had 2 songs each, making a total of 23.

In terms of the decades covered, the data is as follows,

1930s   4
1940s   6
1950s   4
1960s   1
1970s   6

Yes, me too, am surprised to see just one film appearing for 1960s. But well, it is what it is.

No milestones got breached this week. In the previous week on 17th May, the blog had celebrated its 3900th song. So this week remained quiet uneventful on the milestones front.

Here is the week’s data in table form.

In one of he earlier episodes of this series, I have introduce the idea of ‘Ut’ songs, or possibly untraceable songs. Let us review the status and implications of this idea, for this week’s posts.

On 23rd May 2011, the first film in order of posting is ‘Shama’ of 1946. As I check the status of the songs of this film, it has total of 10 songs listed. 8 of these 10 are already on our blog. However, 1 song can be termed as untraceable. The film is available in public domain. The song at serial no. 9 – “Wo Chal Diye Phir Aag Kaleje Mein Laga Kar” was not released on gramophone record, and neither it is contained in the film that is available. That leaves one more song available for posting, after which was will be in a position to declare this film conditionally Yippeee’d.

The films ‘Wahaan’ of 1937 and ‘Faasla’ of 1974, both made their debut on 23rd May 2011. And have never been heard of again. Their tally stands at 1 song, even after a passage of one decade. Then we have ‘Sankalp’ from 1974, which has since been Yippeee’d. And the film ‘Baawarchi’ from 1972 – after accounting for the song posted earlier today, the film’s tally is now at 5 out of a total of 6 song, with just one more song remaining for the film to be declared as Yippeee’d.

The first film in the order of posting, on 24th May 2011 is ‘Dhoop Chhaon’ from 1935. This film is just one shy of reaching the Yippeee status. The last remaining song is available in public domain – “Aaj Mero Ghar Mohan Aayo”, sung by KC Dey. The second film, ‘Hatim Tai’ of 1956 has 3 songs more to be posted, and all are available. The fourth film that day – ‘Aakhiri Sajda’, had made its debut that day, and it has since been Yippeee’d.

Now we come to an interesting and difficult film to discuss – ‘Paakeezah’ of 1971. Geet Kosh lists 9 songs for this film. Of these, 6 are full songs in their individual capacity. All these songs are composed by music director Ghulam Mohammed. The remaining three songs, composed by Naushad Sb, are actually thumris that appear in the film as background songs. And they do not appear fully. The problem we face is that actually in the film there are many more of these background thumris. On the blog Nahm ji has already posted one such unlisted thumri – “Dekh To Dil Ke Jaan Se Uthhta Hai“. Checking on the internet, there are articles available that list many thumris, all of which are partially played in the film, in background. A good article is “The Lost Thumris of Paakeezah“.

There is another interesting aspect to this film. It is now known that actually, many more songs were recorded than are present in the film. In fact, the erstwhile HMV company has also released another LP titled ‘Paakeezah Rang Barang’ in 1977, which contains 9 additional songs, all composed by Ghulam Mohammed, all recorded for the film, and later were not included in the film. It has many interesting tracks including the female solo version of the song “Chalo Dildar Chalo” in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar. None of these have as yet made their appearance on the blog.

If we consider all the above, then the total songs that were recorded for ‘Paakezah’ is more than 20. It is going to be a very interesting follow up on how to handle this film, moving forward. Decidedly, this film has not yet been Yippeee’s in the true sense.

Also on 24th May 2011, the film ‘Aakhiri Sajda’ made its debut. This is technically the last film for which music director Sajjad Husain has composed the music. The five songs of this film were posted in quick succession between 24th May and 9th June. In just about two weeks, this film got Yippeee’d. I need to check whether this is a record of some sort.

25th May 2011 is an interesting day in blog history. On this day, four films were featured. Three of these films made their debut and one film got Yippeee’d. The first film listed on this day is ‘Kaarwaan e Hayaat’ (1935), which is followed by three films of actor director V Shantaram viz.’Dr. Kotnis Ki Amar Kahaani’ (1948), ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ (1957), and ‘Geet Gaya Patharon Ne’ (1964). Of these, ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ was Yippeee’d that day, and the other three made their debut.  For the three films pending, all songs are available. And possibly for ‘Kaarwaan e Hayaat’ we may have more than the 10 songs listed in GK, after the film itself has been discovered and made available in public domain.

After a dot day on 26th May 2011, 5 songs are posted on 27th May. Of the five films that are featured that day, ‘Pagle’ (1950) made its debut. Further, we have an interesting situation for two films – ‘Bhakt Surdas’ (1942) and ‘Narsinh Avtar’ (1949). Both have one song each that is not traceable, at least not yet. In fact, the film ‘Bhakt Surdas’ can already be declared conditionally Yippeee’d – all available songs (14 out of the listed 15) are now posted on the blog. There have been rumors abound for some years now that copy of this film has surfaced, and it might be available with a collector in Canada. This info has not been confirmed so far, and the film itself has not yet surfaced in public domain.

An interesting side note for the 1951 film ‘Afsaana’, already Yippeee’d. Three films by this title were released – in 1938, 1951 and 1966. The 1938 film ‘Madhur Milan’ has an alternate title ‘Afsaana’. No songs of this film are listed as available. The interesting thing is that there is one more film by the same title, that is listed in Geet Kosh, in the unreleased films category. It has a whopping 12 songs listed as recorded, and all are available in public domain. This film has not yet made debut on our blog.

Then we come to 28th May 2011. Three songs are posted. The film ‘Laila Majnu’ of 1953 is already Yippeee’d. The other two films are in the same situation – both films have one song that is untraceable in public domain. By the same yardstick, the 1938 film ‘Street Singer’ may be declared conditionally Yippeee’d – 12 of the 13 songs are already posted.

29th May 2011 is a dot day.

That completed the week’s posts.

A day late, maybe. I am using one pending song from the 1949 film ‘Uddhaar’ for today’s post. The film has a total of 9 songs, of which 4 are posted. Here is the fifth song of this film, in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar. The song is penned by Narendra Sharma and the music is by Vasant Desai. I desist from giving more details about the film and the song here, as the article already has become quite long. Maybe in another later post of one of the songs of this film.

All in all, a very interesting week it has been. We have identified two films that can already qualify for conditional Yippeee status. And have raised a few interesting questions about the film ‘Paakeezah’.

Let us now get going with the song from ‘Udhhaar’. The lyrics for this song have been provided by Prakash ji.

Song – Rangeen Gagan Peeche Chhoota  (Uddhaar) (1949) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Narendra Sharma, MD – Vasant Desai

रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा
अनुराग और अरमानों का
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा
ओ साक़ी
राज हंसिनी का
ओ साक़ी
राज हंसिनी का
सुख सपनों से नाता टूटा
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा

बह गए अश्क़ रह गई आग
बह गए अश्क़ रह गई आग
शबनम से शोले उठे जाग
नाहक अपने ही हाथों से
हमने नसीब अपना लूटा
अनुराग और अरमानों का
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा

कच्ची टहनी और नई कली
कच्ची टहनी और नई कली
गुल हीं के हाथों गई छली
दिल नाज़ुक फूल के प्याले सा
दिल नाज़ुक फूल के प्याले सा
एक ठोकर लगते ही टूटा
अनुराग और अरमानों का
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा
ओ साक़ी
राज हंसिनी का
सुख सपनों से नाता टूटा
रंगीन गगन पीछे छूटा
