Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 49
——————————————————————————

Welcome all to this post under this series where I am presenting yet another song from the Seventies. The last post presented in this series was also presented by me that too was a song from the year 1973.

The song under discussion is also from a movie of 1973.

Ever since Atul ji started this series it has become my routine to regularly check for movies which are eligible to be discussed in the series in the forthcoming month. I try to find movies that triggers long dormant memories of those days, associated either with the movies or their songs.

I may not necessarily have watched all those movies. In some cases it is only the songs from these movies, frequently being played on the radio or loudspeakers may have left lasting memories in my mind.

The movie for today’s song is a case inn point. I have not watched this movie till now, but I remember its song ‘tere naam ka deewaana, tere dar ko dhoondhtaa hai’ which was arguably the most popular of all the songs of this movie, as it was frequently played on the radio then. I did not like this song those days. Nevertheless this was the song and not any other songs that I associate with its movie.

After many years I listened to ‘honi to hoke rahegi anhoni naa hoye’ and liked it very much.

One more song from this movie which was popular and was played on radio and loudspeakers is the song being presented today. It was only after I browsed the list for the pending songs from this movie that I get to know that this song was from this movie ‘Suraj Aur Chandaa’.

I was surprised when I find that this song has not been posted on the blog till now.

As mentioned above I had not watched this movie or its songs till now. It was during the preparation of this post that I watched the video of this song for the first time.

Despite their popularity, popular none of these songs made it to the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of that year.

Before going into the song let us have a look on the movies represented on the blog ten years ago this day 16th November 2009;

Movies represented on the blog on 16.11.2009 (in descending order);

Gaaon mein peepal peepal ki chhainyya Suraj Aur Chandaa-1973 03 of 06 songs posted
Sajanwaa bairi ho gaye hamaar Teesri Kasam-1966 All Songs Covered in the blog

‘Sooraj Aur Chandaa-1973’ or ‘Suraj Aur Chandaa’ was directed by T. Madhava Rao for ‘Suraj Films, Madras’. (It was a costume drama movie as mentioned in HFGK Vol V). It was produced by A.V. Subramaniam. It had Sanjeev Kumar, Meeta (new discovery), Sujeet Kumar, Jagdeep, Lakshmi Chhaya, Shyama, Jairaj, Sajjan, Krishna Kant, Mukri, Ram Mohan, Herucles, Lalita Kumari, Sujata, Mona, Kamal, Bhimraj, Arun Kumar, Prem Kumar, Ravindra and others. Banda makes a special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by B. Vittalacharya, and dialogues were written by Raj Baldev Raj. Editing of this movie was done by G.G. Krishna Rao.

The movie was passed by Censor Board on 22.05.1973.

This movie had total six songs penned by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Three out of the six songs have been posted on the blog earlier.

Today’s song is the fourth songsfrom this movie to appear on the blog. The song is picturized on Bindu and Sanjeev Kumar where Bindu is lip syncing in Lata Mangeshkar’s voice. Also, there are snakes around in the picturisation of this song.

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

Editor’s note:-This song was quite a well known and hummable song of 1970s. It was a song which one heard without necessaily being aware of its details.

From the lyrics, one would guess that a lady is singing about her beloved who has come from far off.

When one watches the picturisation, all such assumptions get thrown out of the window. What one watches in the picturisation is something mind blowing, inadvertently so.

The song is a “naagin” song, in which a “naagin” is singing this love song to her beloved. “Naagin” is played by Bindu and Sanjeev Kumar is her beloved.

“Naagin”(1954) provided the template of all “Naagin” movies, but this movie “Suraj Aur Chanda” (1973) takes that template to a different plane altogether.

In all other “Naagin” movies, a snake charmer (Sapera) plays the been and the female snake (invariably ichhaadhaari naagin) would turn into a human female and would then perform a dance.In this song, it is different. Here it is the snakes who play the “been” (yes seriously, just watch the picturisation). The snakes do not just play the been, they play the whole orchestra including instruments like Dholak, Tabla, Sitar etc as well. 🙂 And the lead snake Bindu performs the dance.

Snakes playing the music ! It is something unprecedented in the annals of Hindi movies ! I am not aware of any such instance in any other movie.

What an idea ! In my younger days, I would laugh at such a picturisation, but now, I can only be amused at the weirdly imaginative brain of the person behind the picturisation of this song.

This song deserves special recognition, especially for its picturisation.

We in this blog hereby make this song the century song of the blog.

THIS song is the 15300th song post in the blog. This song, marking the 153th century post of the blog is a “special” song in its own way. Picturisation of this song can keep people amused for hours ! 🙂

It appears that Laxmikant Pyarelal had specialised in being music directors of “Naagin” movies of that era. He would compose music for such well known “Naagin” movies like “Nageena”(1986)and “Nigaahen”(1989)” as well. These movies had Sridevi as the ichchaadhaari naagin. Remember ‘balma tum balma ho mere khaali naam ke’ 🙂 ?

So, with this amusingly picturised song, the blog completes another century. An agonisingly slow century that took 72 days. Very much in line with the slowing economy. 🙂

But on a different note, as many as 35 movies made their debut and three movies got YIPPEED during this period.

Thanks are due to all the supporters, well wishers, contributors, regulars and visitors whose continues support ensures that this musical bandwagon keeps chugging along on and on.

Chorus

Lyrics

Poorab dishaa se pardesi aaya

Jab se wo aaya aa aa

Poorab dishaa se pardesi aaya
Nainon ke raste man mein samaaya

Poochho naa meri ee prem kahaani
Poochho naa meri ee prem kahaani
Ban gayi main to o aisi deewaani
Saara zamaana uski yaad mein bhulaaya aa
Yaad mein bhulaaya
Poorab dishaa se pardesi aaya

Man ka wo meet ban ke ae

Preet ka geet ban ke

Poorab dishaa se pardesi aaya
Nainon ke raste man mein samaaya

Hullo Atuldom

The 80s was a period when there were a whole set of “Made in South” movies. Movies essentially remakes of popular and successful Telugu, Tamil and Kannada movies. Movies with nearly same formula- one hero and two heroines, both ladies loving the hero equally with the hero behaving courteously with one and loving the other passionately. To add further twist, the heroines will be sisters (as in Tohfa), childhood best friends (as in Raaste Pyar Ke), or meet accidentally and become good friends (as in Maang Bharo Sajna and Asha Jyoti).

All the movies would have good songs which used to be popular in the 80s and 90s but may have been forgotten since. The most important aspect of these movies used to be that one of the heroines would sacrifice her love or never reveal her love so that the other can lead a happy life with her partner/ husband etc. The hero in most of these South-made movies was Jeetendra and the heroines were mostly Rekha, Reena Roy, Shabana Azmi, Moushumi Chatterjee, Jaya Prada or Sridevi. Taking note of the success of Jeetendra in these movies Rajesh Khanna also acted in a few South-made movies.

Asha Jyoti was one of them. The movie had five songs with Anuradha Paudwal, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar as playback singers. Anjaan was the lyricist and Laxmi Pyare were the music directors. One song has been posted from the movie. In that post Atulji has speculated about the status of the relations between the main cast. I have seen this movie a long time back and here is the story of the movie, hope that it clears all speculations. 🙂

Asha Jyoti (1984) had Rajesh Khanna, Reena Roy and Rekha as the main cast. The film was directed by Dasari Narayana Rao, who had also directed Aaj Ka M.L.A. Ram Avtar with Khanna in the lead role and music was given by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The film is remake of Telugu Movie Srivari Muchatlu (1981).

Ramesh Chander (Om Shivpuri), a businessman, asks his son Deepak (Rajesh Khanna), a musician, if he would marry his childhood friend Asha (Rekha), but Deepak keeps declining this idea. Deepak falls in love with one of his fans named Jyoti (Reena Roy), a dancer, and he informs his parents by telegram that he has chosen a girl. Deepak promises to pay off the debts owed by Jyoti’s father. But when Deepak reaches his home in Bombay (now Mumbai), he finds that Ramesh has committed suicide due to bankruptcy. Ramesh expresses his last wish that his second wife and her daughter be taken care of. Deepak is delayed in Bombay and is unable to return to Kashmir.

In Kashmir, Jyoti’s creditor asks her father for money, but Jyoti expresses her inability to pay, so the creditor warns Jyoti’s father she will be in grave trouble. When Deepak does arrive at Jyoti’s house, her father lies, saying that he has married her off to the creditor. Deepak is heartbroken and returns home.

Seth Badri Prasad (Madan Puri), a rich man and childhood friend of Ramesh, bails Deepak out from bankruptcy and gets Ramesh’s creditors to not to file suit against Deepak and to auction the bungalow that he would buy. Deepak feels indebted to Prasad. Badri Prasad had been forcing his friend Ramesh Chander to ask Deepak to marry Asha, daughter of Badri Prasad. After Deepak returns to Bombay, his mother suggests to him that he should now get settled in his life and bring some happiness in his life and so he marries Asha. During the wedding, Deepak observes a woman similar to Jyoti. Deepak searches for the Jyoti lookalike and finds the woman was actually Jyoti.

Now Deepak knows that Jyoti was not married to Hukumchand (Roopesh Kumar) and that her father had lied to him. Jyoti had come to Bombay in search of Deepak and tells him that she is the mother of Deepak’s child. Deepak decides to end his marriage with Asha and to tell Asha the truth, but Jyoti insists that Asha would not be able to remarry as society might discard her. Jyoti asks Deepak to act as if they had never met and be a loyal husband of Asha, so that Jyoti can take care of Deepak’s child.

Later, Jyoti becomes a popular dance teacher in her city. Asha decides to learn dancing form Jyoti and they become close friends. Asha discloses that her husband is not loving her and he does not even come close to her. Jyoti visits Asha’s home and learns that Asha is none other than Deepak’s wife. Jyoti tells Deepak to be a true husband to Asha and give Asha the pleasures of married life.

Asha learns that Jyoti and Deepak were lovers before her marriage to Deepak and suspects they are having an affair. Asha found that Deepak and Jyoti are well-wishers of Asha, are innocent and victims of the unpredictable nature of fate. After coming to know the truth, Asha and Jyoti decide to sacrifice their respective lives to let the other live a nice happy married life with Deepak.

Sitting through the movie was not a pain. I loved the way the ladies (over) dressed in silk sarees and had extra long hair plaited in the traditional South Indian Style complete with a garden full of flowers on their hair and heavy jewellery. There was a time in my life when I yearned to have hair like my idol -Rekha- sported in these movies. These movies also showed that Rekha was an artist who followed all instructions of the choreographer and enacted the semi-classical dances that were there in the movie, as can be seen in the song of this movie that is already posted. She also had large eyes that conveyed a variety of emotions.

Today’s song comes towards the end of the movie where we have Asha dressing up Jyoti as a bride and trying to rectify the wrong that fate has delivered on Deepak and his Jyoti (the movies in this genre excelled in naming their characters). We also see that Deepak and Jyoti are not comfortable with this turn of events but Asha prevails on them and we have this Asha Bhonsle play backed song.

I am sure the readers have guessed why I chose a song that has the “oh! so beautiful!” Rekha for today’s post. Yes, she turns a year older today and it has become a compulsion for me that write atleast a small post to wish her.
Wish you a very happy birthday Rekhaji.


Song-Aayi pehli milan ki wo raat (Asha Jyoti)(1984) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

ho o o
kitne saawan pyaase tarse
tabhi suhaagan raat aati hai
aati hai toh
pyaar se mann ka kora aanchal bhar jaati hai
kora aanchal bhar jaati hai ae
pyaase mann pe huyi kya barsaat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

tan se tan ka milan nahin yeh
tan se tan ka milan nahin yeh
yeh hai do saanson ka sangam
apne jiya ko bas mein rakhna
dil ki dhadkan jaaye na thham
kaisi hoti hai
kaisi hoti hai pehli mulaakaat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

madhur milan ki iss bela mein
tan mann jeewan kar de arpan
madhur milan ki iss bela mein
tan mann jeewan kar de arpan
pyaar se saajan ka mann jeete
wahi dulhan hai yahaan suhaagan
o o o o
kiski jeet huyi re kiski maat
sawere hume batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
kya kya huyi re piya ke sang baat
sawere humen batlaana
aayi pehli milan ki woh raat
sajan se na sharmaana

“Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977) an archtypically Manmohan Desai directed movie, reminds me of an indulgent parent who, when he comes back home to his little ones brings them lots and lot of goodies that the kids were so eagerly looking forward to. The kids just would not have enough of the goodies.

The movie, a multistarrer, which was a new fashion in India, after the success of “Sholay”(1975), boasted a who is who of stars of those days- Amitabh Bachchan, Vinod Khanna, Rishi Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Shabana azmi, Neetu Singh were the three romantic pairs. Pran and Nirupa Roy play the parents. Villains are Jeewan, Ranjeet, Yusuf Khan. Other characters in the movie include Mukri, Nazeer Hussain, Kamal Kapoor, Pratima Devi etc. Even Helen makes a cameo appearance.

Most people who are into HFM have already watched this movie. That too multiple times. If you are an Indian, then this movie must have influences you in one way or the other. This movie has scenes, dialogues, coincidences etc that have become stuff of legends. They also are constant source of jokes, memes, amusing anecdotes etc.

This movie had seven songs. Six songs from this movie have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs from the movie that have been discussed in the past :-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 My name is Anthony Gonsalves 3040 28-Sep-10
2 Parda hai parda 9189 23-Dec-13
3 Hamko tumse ho gaya hai pyaar kya karen 11111 9-May-15
4 Anhoni ko honi kar de honi ko anhoni 11963 31-Mar-16
4 Khoon khoon hota hai paani nahin 14896 26-Feb-19
5 Shirdi waale Saibaba aaya hai tere dar pe sawaali 15199 4-Sep-19

The discussions of these songs in the movie were no less fun than the fun that we may have had while watching this movie.

This song made its debut in the blog with the song My name is Anthony Gonsalves . The date was 29 september 2010. It was a guest post by a guest poster who had discovered the blog just a few months ago. Santosh Ojha, the contributor, was a diehard Amitabh Bachchan fan and he had watched this movie in Nagpur during its first run just days before his class X examination, not once but thrice !

His observations on the movie scenes and story, alongwith his school day experiences, makes this writeup a great fun to read.
In fact, this song itself has an amusing beginning:

You see the whole country of this system
is juxtapositioned by the hemoglobin in the atmosphere ,
because you are a sophisticated rhetorician
intoxicated by the exuberance of your own verbosity

🙂

The next song was covered three years later in 2013. This too was a guest post, and it was by Peevesie’s mom, who may have watched this movie a few million times.

The third song writeup from this movie turned out to be a very very special occasion for the blog. This song was the only song in history that has the voices of Mukesh, Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Lata together. This song was the post number 11111 for the blog and it was written by our own Sudhir Jee. It was a century post for him as well as for all the abovementioned legendary singer. It was a century post for Laxmikant Pyarelal as well.

Four more songs have been covered after that. Writeup for these songs were by Peevesie’s mom. Four writeups out of six ! It just shown how much the songs of this movie mean to her !

What is the only song left to be covered ? It is yet another fun song viz “Tayyab Ali Pyaar ka dushman hay haay”. This song is sung by Rafi and chorus, with a few words by Mukri. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a song where Akbar (Rishi Kapoor) is seen heckling Tayyab Ali (Mukri), the father of Salma (Neetu Singh), for coming in the way of their love.

This song, like the other songs of this movie, is best enjoyed while watching the movie in a movie hall in 1970s. The response of the public, especially the coin throwing front staller junta (appropriately names chawanni chaap janta 🙂 ) is an experience that can no longer be savoured. This experience has become extinct with time.

Incidentally, unlike Santosh Ojha, I myself had not watched this movie during its first run. My movie watching spree began in 1978, and I watched this movie during its second run, which is not the same as watching it during its maiden run, of course.

With this song, all the seven songs of “Amar Akbar Anthony”(1977) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

We are into September. The month has begun with on an auspicious note with the arrival of the elephant-headed god, Lord Ganesh or Gajanan or Vighneshwar or Ekdanta or Vinayak or Ganpati- different names for the same god. For which Atulji had posted a “Ganpati Bappa Morya” song. The birthday list for September began with the ‘pouring out of a true fan’s feelings for his idol post’ on Sadhana by Sudhirji.

Here is my post to wish my favourite actor on turning a year older. He has been out of the country for the last year undergoing treatment for the dreaded C. Though out of the country he has been in public eye with constant reports of how he is recovering and that he is expected back in the country in the not-so-distant future. I am wishing Rishi Raj Kapoor on his 67th birthday. May he return to the pink of health and continue what he does best – give us lots of entertaining movies like his last few – “Mulk” (2018) directed by Anubhav Sinha which was poles apart from his “102 Not Out” directed by Umesh Shukla. He played varied characters in “Kapoor and Sons” (2016), “Besharam” (2013), “Patiala House” (2011), “Agneepath” (2012), “Do Dooni Char” (2010), “Student of the year” (2012), – post his decision in 1999 to stop trying to play the romantic lead we have seen Chintu (as his is fondly called) in different avatars. He must be the only actor from the 70s and 80s (other than Amitabh of course) to be considered for playing near-central characters which are not necessarily young.

Now for a few words on today’s song

It is from a 42-year-old movie. It has been on the air-waves and all the music channels of television ever since. And it falls right in the category of “how come this song was not posted earlier?”. But then we will find many of Chintu’s songs eligible for this category and our blog will always have fodder for posting :). The last time I heard this on radio was, may be last week, when I was driving to the airport in Mumbai (my brother was dropping me) or driving home from the airport with my son after touch down at Bangalore (that means twice on the same day). That is how frequently the song gets played. Then on entering the house I found my husband surfing channels and again this song. And next day morning doordarshan played it on their weekly musical “Rangoli”. So that made it 4 times in 24 hours and am I complaining about the number of repeats? No, not at all!! Why? Because I like the elements that the maker of the movie has put into the song. In fact, the maker is known for putting that kind of elements in the whole movie and almost all his movies.

Here I am talking of Shri Manmohan Desai and his habit of showing us incredible, illogical and unbelievable things in his movies, and how the audiences have lapped those up with eyes closed. Remember the blood donation scene in “Amar Akbar Anthony”? The song sequence in “Mard” has a tiger escorting the mother towards a boat so that she can cross to the other bank where her son is singing in the temple. Unforgettable.

Today’s song has the eternal mother – Nirupa Roy – escaping from the clutches of Jeevan and Ranjeet (they were a team in the 70s). She is shown running towards an open-air temple where we have Chintu singing a qawwali in praise of Sai Baba. The mother comes in crawling (tired after all the running and falls that she has had enroute) moves slowly towards the Baba’s idol unseen by the devotees present in the temple. Just as Chintu sings the line – “tu bichhadon ko milaaye, bujhe deepak jalaaye” we see two tiny specks of jyot (light of the diyas) emerge from the Baba’s eyes and enter the lady’s eyes – here I must mention that the lady is blind too, a result of an accident at the start of the movie. And now she can see three kids beckoning her – on the Baba’s smiling face. Such chamatkaars (magical happening) used to be Manmohan Desai’s forte. The song or qawwali comes to a close and she declares to whoever is ready to hear that “ab mein dekh sakti hoon” (I have my vision back); I pity all the eye doctors of that time, I am sure they would have prayed to Baba that they don’t go out of business. 🙂

So today on the occasion of Chintu a.k.a Rishi Kapoor’s birthday let us wish him health and happiness through this chamatkaari song that was written by Anand Bakshi, sung by Mohd. Rafi and composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Incidentally 3rd September was the 80th birthday of Pyarelal Ramprasad Sharma – Pyarelal of the music director duo Laxmi-Pyare. Let us wish him too health and happiness.

Happy Friendship day to all in Atuldom

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Happy Birthday to our Kishore Kumar

Blog Day : 4030 Post No. : 15147

It is that day of the year again.

The 31st of July.

A date that doesn’t need any reminder for lovers of HFM.

Of all the days in the calendar, a few stand out – and the 31st of July is one of them.

For it is the death anniversary of one of the most loved and respected figures of the Hindi film industry, Mohammad Rafi, respectfully referred to as Rafisaab.

Today on his 39th death anniversary, we on this blog, remember him with great fondness and respect.

I’ve written about Rafisaab many times here on this blog. In fact, there’s no one I have written about more than about Rafisaab.

To be honest, there really isn’t anything more for me to say that I haven’t already said before.

How I, growing up in a Kishore-dominated era, fell in love with Rafisaab’s voice.

How I’ve done all-nighters listening to Rafisaab songs, completely losing track of time.

How much I respect Rafisaab for being such a good human being, inspite of having the power to abuse his position, if he had wanted.

I’ve written about all this – and more. And I don’t want to bore readers here by repeating stuff.

Not that I get bored of writing about Rafisaab. Never. When I don’t ever get bored of listening to his voice, how can I possibly get bored of writing about him? It is such a pleasure, and an honour, to write about Rafisaab.

So whether I have any new material or not, I will write about Rafisaab – even if it is only a few lines. That is the very least I can do for someone who has given me so much joy in life. And on his Remembrance Day, I just have to write a few lines for him – to thank him for everything.

Different people make a mark in this world for different reasons. Not all leave a legacy of course, but I doubt even those who do, have any idea of the magnitude of the legacy they would leave behind. And its endurability.

I doubt Rafisaab thought about all this when he was alive. He was a simple man, happy to earn his living through the one profession that he loved, and knew he was loved for – singing. Even for that, he was humble enough to always point upwards, to God, to suggest He was to thank for everything.

Rafisaab was very soft-spoken. For all his animation while singing, he was an extremely shy person in conversation and avoided interviews. Which is also why there are very few interviews of him available out there. It is our loss, but then that was the person he was. At least we have his songs, and anecdotes of those who knew him with us.

Rafisaab was devoted to his profession – he would do riyaaz for hours. He enjoyed spending time with his family. And enjoyed playing badminton. And good food. A man who always had a smile on his lips, who never thought ill for others – on the contrary, he went out of his way to help others.

A simple man – but what a legacy!

One that he would never have imagined during his lifetime.

Even today, 39 years after he is gone, there isn’t a day when his songs are not playing on radio. There isn’t a day when HFM lovers from around the world are not listening to his songs on whatever device they have. Today, thanks to technology, we have access to music on demand.

Yes, Rafisaab has enriched the lives of millions by his sheer voice. And that, for decades. And, I am sure, will continue for decades too. Such is the love people have for Rafisaab. It transcends generations.

This is another aspect that makes me really happy for him. It is great to see young generations today, even teenagers, listen to Rafisaab’s songs. Of course, their music interests are current too – and they should be. But from what I’ve seen, many of them are still happy to listen to old HFM songs – and Rafisaab, of course. Which is why I say Rafisaab’s voice transcends generations.

In my own case, I know my next generation is also very fond of Rafisaab. My niece’s husband invariably plays Rafisaab songs in his car. Not just for me, but for himself too. Not that my niece complains. She is herself very fond of Rafisaab. 🙂 They like current songs too, but Rafisaab is a fixture in their car. Especially 1960s songs like “dil ke jharoke mein”, “pukaarta chala hoon main” and “deewana hua baadal”. I swear, I did nothing to influence them – it all happened by itself. 🙂 Actually, my niece’s father-in-law is also a Rafisaab fan, so maybe that played a role too.

Now my niece has a kid – he is not even 3, but I have a feeling he will also soon be listening to Rafisaab. 🙂

I will not be surprised if this is the story in many other families too. I hope it is – then Rafisaab’s legacy is in safe hands.

Rafisaab deserves nothing less. A person with such a divine voice, a person who had such a good heart, who did good for so many, deserves every little bit of love and respect he gets.

I always have a warm feeling, and feel energized, when I discuss, or write about, Rafisaab. His songs immediately come to my mind, THAT voice, those intonations in the rendering. I get lost, happily so, thinking about his songs.

I can keep going on and on, but then I will be repeating what I’ve written in the past. And will be boring the readers. 🙂

So I’ll just move on to the song for today.

This is from Jaani Dushman (1979). A decade right up my sleeve, given that I’m a 1970s boy. Avinashji, himself a huge Rafisaab fan, sent me the lyrics and requested me to do a write-up.

By the late 70s, Rafisaab had regained his place in public mindspace. The first half of the decade had been totally dominated by Kishore Kumar (inspite of a few Rafisaab hits). But by the mid-70s, Rafisaab began coming back. I remember Laila Majnu (1976) songs being a success. A year later, he had chartbuster hit songs in Amar Akbar Anthony (1977), Hum Kisise Kam Nahin (1977) and Apnapan (1977), to mention just three films.

And so he continued, with hits in Abdullah (1980) and Karz (1980), right until his untimely death.

Jaani Dushman (1979) was during his revival phase.

The film has the popular, foot-tapping Rafisaab-Asha Bhosle duet “tere haathon mein pehna ke chudiyaan”, but also the song of today “chalo re doli utthao kahaar” (which comes multiple times in the film, if I remember right), was popular too.

The film itself is a multi-starrer in keeping with the trend of the time. Those were the days of multi-starrers – many commercial films had two or more lead heroes and heroines. JD went a step further, and must be considered a mother of multi-starrers – it had at least 5 “heroes” – Jeetendra, Sanjeev Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Shatrughan Sinha and Sunil Dutt. And Rekha, Reena Roy, Bindiya Goswami, Neetu Singh and Sarika amongst the “heroines”. Other movies of that era that were multi-multi-starrers that come to mind are Naagin (1976) and the Burning Train (1980).

I remember seeing the film at the time, but given my pathetic memory, I don’t remember too much of it. I do remember that it was meant to be a horror film of sorts, where a monster is supposed to murder every newly-wed bride. Something like that.

The songs of the film were quite popular, and the film too did well I think.

“Chalo re doli utthao kahaar” is a background song, picturised during the bidaai of a daughter as she leaves her parents’ home. It is a typical Rafisaab song – he was very good at emotional, background songs of this type. With their ebbs and flows.

Talking of emotional, background songs, am reminded of Ravi, the composer of songs of Waqt (1965) saying he had insisted with the Chopras on Rafisaab singing “waqt se din aur raat”, though Mahendra Kapoor, and not Rafisaab, was generally their preferred singer. He had said that this song would suit Rafisaab more than anyone else.

Similarly Kalyanji Anandji picked Rafisaab to sing a couple of lines as background song in that death scene in Muqaddar Ka Sikandar (1978) – “zindagi to bewafa hai, ek din thukraayegi”. Anandji said in an interview that he was a bit embarrassed to ask Rafisaab to sing those lines, because he had no other song in the film, and it was only a couple of lines. But he wanted them to be in Rafisaab’s voice. Without the slightest ego, Rafisaab rendered those lines with his usual high standards.

L-P, ever loyal to Rafisaab, even during Kishore Kumar’s peak, used him to render the emotional background song “nafrat ki duniya ko chhod ke” of Haathi Mere Saathi (1971) even though Kishore Kumar sings the songs picturised on Rajesh Khanna.

This song for today is also an L-P composition. I request you to please listen to this song – and remember Rafisaab today.

Rafisaab, you will always be in our hearts. The years roll by, but the love and respect does not diminish one bit. For what you’ve given the world, millions are ever grateful to you.

Personally, I can’t thank you enough, hence this post as a humble tribute.

(As mentioned above, lyrics for today’s song have been provided to me by Avinashji. I thank him for providing me these lyrics).

Chalo re doli uthhaao qahaar
Piya milan ki rut aayi
Piya milan ki rut aayi
Piya milan ki rut aayi ee

Blog Day : 3970 Post No. : 15054

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

Lyrics

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

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

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

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