Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-7 – (‘seven-movies collaboration’ only)
——————————————————————————————-

In this post we take a look at ‘seven movies collaboration’ between Sahir Ludhianvi and his Music Directors. Interestingly, after ‘five movies-collaboration’, we have ‘seven-movies-collaboration’, and after that it is the ‘double figure collaboration’ only for three music directors viz. S.D. Burman, Ravi and N. Datta.

Here are the details of the ‘seven-movies-collaboration’ which Sahir had with two music directors viz. Roshan and Laxmikant-Pyarelal:

14 Jiyo Aur Jeene Do 1982 Laxmikant-Pyarelal 1 2 2
Total 96 98 96

(*lyricist tag for one song to be added which will make the total songs on the blog to 11)

We can see from the above table that all the movies where Roshan had composed music with Sahir Ludhianvi as lyricist have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog.

For movies where Laxmikant-Pyarelal had composed music we have three songs left from ‘Jaagriti-1977’ and one song left from ‘Jiyo Aur Jeene Do-1982’.

Today we are going to listen a song from the movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’.

“Jaagriti-1977” was directed by Rajendra Bhatia for ‘Jai Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Vimal Bhatia and Naresh Malhotra. It had Nutan, Vinod Mehra, Reena Roy, Master Satyajeet, Prem Chopra, I.S. Johar, Paintal and Asrani, with Krishnakant, Lily Chakravarty, Padma Chawhan, Ashoo and Junior Mehmood. They were supported by Ram Mohan, Karan Dewan, Sushil Bhatnagar, Birbal, Mounto, Keshav Rana, Madhu Apte, Brook Bond, Jugnu, Aditya Sharma, Manjeet, Salim, Rajesh, Raj Bachhan, Master Ripple, Master Ravi, Manmohan, Aarti, Ram Avtar, Narbada Shankar and Raaj Kishore. Jayshree T., and Helen make special appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Sharad Pilgaonkar and screenplay was written by Sachin Bhowmick. Dialogues of this movie were written by Sagar Sarhadi. Editing of this movie was done by Nand Kumar.

This movie had four songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Minoo Puroshottam, and Dilraj Kaur were the playback singers for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and lip-synced on screen by Reena Roy. Incidentally this one also is a ‘mujra song’ (like two previous posts in this series 😊)

In today’s song Reena Roy is lip-syncing for Asha Bhonsle’s voice and performing on the on the song, and we can I.S. Johar, Prem Chopra, Asrani, Paintal, Satyajit, Birbal and many others are seen in the picturization of this song.

The lyrics are hard-hitting and taking a dig at the ‘corrupts’ and ‘anti-socials’ in the society, for which Sahir is well known and remembered for.

I have not been able to get correct words at many places and I would request readers to please help in adding the same.

Let us now listen to the today’s song…

Also, let us have a look at the summary of ‘Sahir & His Music Directors’ collaboration up to this post (excluding today’s number) ;

Total upto 1966 821 movies 2518 2966 2102 656 152 54

It can be seen from the table of 1966 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 133 songs in movies released in 1966.

As many as 104 of these 133 songs have already been covered in the blog. Out of 49 movies of 1966 where Lata Mangeshkar sang, all Lata Mangeshkar songs of 33 movies are already covered. So we only have 29 Lata songs belonging to 16 movies of 1966 that are not yet covered in the blog.

Alphabetically the first such movie that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to discuss is “Chhota Bhai”(1966). This social movie was directed by K P Atma for Olympic Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Nutan, Rehman, Mahesh Kumar, Lalita Paar, Nazeer Hussain, Jageerdar, Randheer, Sulichana, Chatterjee etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it, including four Lata Mangeshkar songs- all being solos. Three songs from the movie (including two Lata Mangeshkar songs) have been covered in the past.

Here is the third Lata Mangeshkar song from “Chhota Bhai”(1965). Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only the audio of the song is available. Going by the picturisation of the other Lata songs in the movie, the song is undoubtedly lip synced by Nutan. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Diya jaage saari raina nindiya na aaye (Chhota Bhai)(1966) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

diyaa jaage saari rainaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
raah takey vyaakul nainaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye

sapnaa nahin koi sang kiran ke
geet nahin koi paas pavan ke
aa aa aa aa
sapnaa nahin koi sang kiran ke
soye bhalaa kaise phool chaman ke ae
taaron kaa bhi hai yahi kehnaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye

lallaa lalaa lori gaake sunaaun
main apni palakon kaa palanaa banaaun
aa aa aa aa
lallaa lalaa lori gaake sunaaun
mai teri nindiyaa ko kaise bulaaun
teri tarah vo bhi maane na kehnaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
diyaa jage saari rainaa
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye
nindiyaa na aaye

Hullo Atuldom

4th January is the 90th birth anniversary of the on-screen mother of Rajesh Khanna, Vinod Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor, Dharmendra, and a few heroines too. She mostly played mother to heroes, at least that is what my personal experience was, fed as I was on movies of the ’70s and ’80s.

But that is not how she began her career. Our in-house encyclopedia whom I prefer calling Guruji has written a post and also in a few of his comments to other posts on the blog that she has played comic characters and stunt roles too in addition to playing Goddesses in mythologicals after having made her debut as heroine in movies of the late ’40s and continuing to play central characters through the ’50s and early ’60s. In post of his Atulji has commented about a 44 year old Nirupa Roy (who this post is dedicated to) playing mother to a 38 year old Shashi Kapoor and 34 year old Amitabh Bachchan who incidentally played the older son.

“Laadla” (1966) had seven songs of which the blog has four songs. One of the songs posted thus far is a two part song and shows Nirupa Roy sing a lullaby to a baby in a pram who grows up to be Sudhir Kumar (of ‘Dosti’ fame). Today’s song show her on a train journey and making her son comfortable on the berth of the compartment. This must have been the first class coach of yore which used to have a lot of space and private washroom etc.; this I am deducing from all the train scenes of old time movies that I have grown up seeing. Personally I have never experienced that luxury, but that is not the matter of this post.

Today’s song has Lata Mangeshkar giving playback to Nirupa’s atma ki awaaz (voice of conscience) and the charming actress shows her distress so well. Heard this song for the first time as I wrote it out for the post and like what Rajinder Krishan has written and Laxmi-Pyare have composed.


Song-Kaun tujhko maa kahega (Laadla)(1966) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisiki maa nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tere dil mein maa–mta ka
ek bhi armaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin

phool jiss daali se nikla
haq ussi daali ka hai ae ae
phool jiss daali se nikla
haq ussi daali ka hai
teri hasti tera darza
teri hasti tera darza
toh fakat maali ka hai
jhhooth ko sach kar dikhaana
iss kadar aasaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tu kisi ki maa nahin

soch jiska yeh jigar hai
aaj woh roti hai kyun
soch jiska yeh jigar hai
aaj woh roti hai kyun
tu kisi ke aansuon se
tu kisi ke aansuon se
apna munh dhoti hai kyun
jo khushi chheene kisi ki
woh koi insaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tere dil mein maa–mta ka
ek bhi armaan nahin
kaun tujhko maa kahega
tu kisi ki maa nahin
tu kisi ki maa nahin
maa nahin

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –- – –

Welcome all to this seventh article in the series ‘Rajesh Khanna- The Phenomenon’. When I took up this series, I thought I will try to share articles on regular basis at least monthly, and so that within a year or so the series will get completed.

However, it has been more than five years now and some articles which I initially planned are yet to come … so we continue. And, instead of moving to the next year i.e., 1981 from the last post which presented a song of 1980, we will be enjoying a song again from a 1980 movie of Rajesh Khanna.

This is because I wish to include today’s song in this series and I constantly felt that I should not move ahead without this lovely song. After all, ‘1980’ was a special year for Kaka and it was like a turning point in his career as after this he was back and had started delivering hits on regular intervals.

But before moving ahead we will have a look on the articles posted in this series so far,

SN Song
1) Haseenon mere paas aao
2) Mahaa shoonya ke mahaan vistaar mein
3) Baby ghar chalo, ghar tum bin hai soonaa
4) Chal chal aage nikal
5) Tum nahin maanoge
6) Aaj bichhde hain kal ka darr bhi nahin

Today’s post is to pay our tributes to Rajesh Khanna on his birth anniversary. That way it is a big day on the blog specially for Rajesh Khanna fans (or people like me 😊).

Today 29th December’2020 is the seventy-eighth birth anniversary of Rajesh Khanna (Jatin Khanna – his original name). He was born on 29th December’1942 and passed away on 18th July’2012.
He would have turned seventy-eight had he been alive today.

Rajesh Khanna made his debut in Bollywood with the movie ‘Aakhri Khat’ in 1966. However, it was only after three years i.e., in 1969 that his movie ‘Aradhana’ got released and he rose to stardom and popularity, which nobody had witnessed and tasted before.

In 1969 there were six movies of Rajesh Khanna released and they were viz. ‘Aradhana’, ‘Bandhan’, ‘Do Raaste’, ‘Doli’, ‘Itefaq’ and ‘Khamoshi’.
So that was exactly more than fifty years ago now, and coming to think of the end of this year 2020 his movies released in ‘1970’ will become ‘fifty years old’ now.

In 1970 following movies of Rajesh Khanna were released;

SNo Movie Title Director
01 Aan Milo Sajna Mukul Dutt
02 Anand Hrishikesh Mukherjee
03 Kati Patang Shakti Samanta
04 Sachcha Jhootha Manmohan Desai
05 Safar Asit Sen
06 The Train Ravikant Nagaich

The next year i.e., ‘1971’ was another big year for him which saw seven of his movies releasing in the year viz. ‘Amar Prem’, ‘Andaz’, Chhoti Bahu’,’Dushman’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Maryada’, and ‘Mehboob Ki Mehndi’.

Looking back at the movies of Rajesh Khanna released in these three consecutive years (1969-1970-1971) makes me to try and visualise how people were responding to his movies ? specially when we read about the ‘mass hysteria’ he created then, and people thronging outside his bungalow to get a ‘glimpse’ of him or ‘girls’ leaving their ‘lips’ on his car and if that was not sufficient, they were also writing him letters with their ‘blood’. All seems like reading a ‘fairy tale’. But that was how the country was under the ‘severe’ grip of ‘Kaka’s charisma’ then. Today nobody will believe that such things happened then. Only those who have witnessed and lived through those years will be able to share about how it was then?

I bet, even today, if all the above movies (and others in later years from 1972 onwards) are released back-to-back and if one watches them, he will definitely fall in love with Rajesh Khanna.

Other main thing associated with Rajesh Khanna’s movies was their songs. Almost all the movies (not all of the 1980s) have a very good music and some have given us the gems of the songs of Hindi Film Music then. The picturization of the ‘song sequences’ and Kaka’s performing on them with his charismatic style and jigs also made the songs special. Songs created by R.D. Burman-Anand Bakshi-Kishore Kumar will always be remembered in the history of HFM of that era.

If somebody happens to come across HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980), please do read the complimentary messages on the release of this ‘geet-kosh’.

Here is what Music Critic Raju Bharatan had said about this decade; (I am reproducing it below);

“The music we created lives” says Naushad Ali, “because it is music with a soul, a tradition.” Such music also lives because now there is the Hindi Film Geet Kosh for each song to come dancing before our eyes. And, I remember, it was Bishwa Nath Chattejee who, some 15 years back corrected some factual errors I had made in my ‘Forty years of Naushad’ story in “The Illustrated Weekly.” Also, some five years back, I remember basing almost my entire four-page article on Sachin Dev Burman on the SD Geet Kosh so painstakingly presented by Bishwa Nath Chatterjee in his ‘Saurabh-77’.
I have therefore no doubt that Bishwanath will do a similar thorough job on the 1971-1980 HFGK. This 1971-1980 decade, in my opinion, is the most important Geet Kosh for our record, since this was the decade in which our Film music underwent a metamorphosis. Browsing through this 1971-80 Geet Kosh, we are sure to get a composite idea of why our composers could not by 1980, call the tune the way they did in 1971, the year in which that Musical Superstar, Rajesh Khanna, rose to his peak. Even without looking at this Geet Kosh, I can testify that Bishwa Nath Chatterjee has done a momentous job. …. ….”

So, Kaka was a ‘Musical Superstar’ too and music of his movies always had to be good if not great always. Though, many of his movies of the eighties surrendered to the popular demand and the music produced was same as in the league of the other movies of those years. (That we will be discussing in the future posts under this series on the blog).

Today we enjoy a lovely song from the ‘1980’ movie ‘Bandish’ sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle. Lyrics are by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

I remember this song since my childhood days as it used to play on radio for the promotion of this movie. I like this song very much though the other song of this movie ‘rang bhare mausam se rang churaake’ was more popular, I think.

Today’s song also happens to be picturized on Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini like the above song.

By the way, let us also have a look on the blog ten-years back this day. Here are the details of songs posted by our dear Atul ji on 29.12.2010 on the blog;

SN Song
1) Ham dono do premi duniya chhod chalen
2) Karwaten badalte rahen saari raat ham
3) Bye bye miss good night kal phir milenge
4) Rimjhim rimjhim dekho baras rahi raat
5) Pasand aa gayi ik kaafir haseena
6) Aayo re aayo re aayo re saawan aayo re
7) Aa jaao aa bhi jaao

So, we had seven posts in a single day – all Rajesh Khanna songs – all posts done by Atul ji, including two songs from ‘Bandhan-1969’. I think that makes many things clear and no body should have doubt now as who else other than me and Raja ji is the great fan of Rajesh Khanna. 😊

Let us now enjoy today’s song and remember Kaka …

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020)–Song No.101
———————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 19 december 2010) saw seven songs getting covered from seven movies. First song of the day was covered at 9:19 AM and the final song at 1:01 PM. So unlike other days, when all songs would get covered before 10 AM, this day I struggled to publish the songs of the day.

Here are the details of the seven songs covered that day:-

Blog post number Song Movie (year) Remarks
3374 Tum kyaa jaano more maathe ki bindiyaa ka mol Kaneez(1949) Movie YIPPEED by now
3375 Muhabbat par bahaar aati jahaan gulzaar ho jaataa Shair (1949) Movie YIPPED by now
3376 Duniyaa waalon badaa hai mushqil apne dil ko todnaa Chhoti Bhaabhi(1950) Seven songs covered out of nine
3377 Dil le gaya ji koi dil le gayaa Sanam(1951) Movie YIPPEED by now
3378 Mere chaand mere laal re Deewaana(1952) Movie YIPPEED by now
3379 Aji o suno to 12 O’clock(1958) Movie YIPPEED by now
3380 Ham jee lenge bin tumhaare…tum meri zindagi ho Dillagi (1966) 4 songs covered out of 7

One can see that five out of seven movies whose songs were discussed ten years ago have since been YIPPEED.

“Dillagi”(1966) is one of the unYIPPEED movies and so it is one of the two movies eligible for blog ten year challenge today.

“Dillagi”(1966) was produced by Tony Walker and directed by S Bannerjee for Golden Films, Bombay. The movie had Mala Sinha, Sanjay Khan, Bela Bose, Johny Walker, Nazima, Vijay Kumar, Gajanan Jagirdar, Amar, Keshav, Khurshid, Hammad, Tuntun, Moolchand, Pravin Paul, Tony Walker, Bela Bose, Zeb Sultana, Shabana, Roop Kumari, Ravi Kant, Ratan Gaurang, Tulsi, Aziz, Maqsood, Manjeet, Abdul Jabbar, Suresh, N.Misra, Samarlal Damani, Ajay Kumar, Abdul Kader, Baxi, Shrfu, Edwina etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it and four of these songs have been covered so far.

Here is the fifth song from “Dillagi”(1966) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Musc is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The fun teasing song is picturised as a party song on Mala Sinha, Sanjay Khan, Tony Walker or Vijay Kumar, Chinoo Shikari, Edwina etc.

I heard this fun song during my early childhood and I loved the lyrics, especially the words kabootar kabootar thrown in the lyrics for no apparent reasons other than to make it a fun song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

4501 Post No. : 16038 Movie Count :

4386

I am not well-informed about Hindi films of 1980s and beyond, except about those that I have watched in the theatres or on Video sharing platforms. Between the late 1960s and early 1970s, I used to watch almost one film every week either on Saturdays or Sundays. My ‘over-exposure’ to films, mostly masala films, during this period created an aversion in me that discuraged me from watch theese films in the later years. Probably the theory of diminishing marginal utility was being applied to me. Over a period of time, my quota of watching films came down from once a week to 2-3 films a year which is still in force. Because of this, I have missed many entertaining and a few quality films released especially in 80s and 90s.

It may sound strange but until yesterday, I was not aware that there was a film titled ‘Swati’ (1986). I do not recall having heard about this film from any one of my relatives and friends who have interest in Hindi films. What attracted me to know more about this film was that first, it was a film from a well-known banner, Prasad Productions. Secondly, its ensemble of star cast included Shashi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Meenakshi Seshadri, Madhuri Dixit, Vinod Mehra, Sarika, Akbar Khan among others. I was not aware that Meenakshi Seshadri and Madhuri Dixit had worked together in a film. I came to know later that both of them had earlier worked together in ‘Aawaara Baap’ (1985).

From the synopsis of the film’s story, it appeared that Shashi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore worked in this film in the role of an elderly couple. The combination of the actors under a well-known film production banner motivated me to watch the film, the DVD of which was available on-line. The film was a remake of a Telugu film of the same title which was released in 1984 and became the box office hit. The film was also remade in Kannada as ‘Usha’ (1986). The story of the film is as under:

Dr. Rajendra (Shashi Kapoor) is a doctor who runs a nursing home. Sharda (Sharmila Tagore) works as a nurse with Rajendra. An event in her life has happened which has forced her to live a life in anonymity and as a single mother (I will not go into the details). She has a grown up daughter, Swati (Meenakshi Seshadri). She is under the impression that her father has deserted her mother which had made her a feminist and outspoken. She hates hypocrisies and prejudices which dominate our society.

During one of her argumentative encounters with a group of males, Swati meets Ram Mohan (Akbar Khan) who is associated with some leftist group and always seen with writing slogans on the walls. After the initial hate relations with Ram Mohan, Swati falls in love with him. Dr. Rajendra has been a widower with a grown-up daughter, Anandi (Madhuri Dixit), a tomboyish type girl. She is in love with Kapil (Raja Bundela) simply because her idol is cricketer, Kapil Dev. She is also fond of asking her father as well Kapil puzzles to solve.

Swati thinks that after her marriage with Ram Mohan, her mother will be left alone. She needs a companion. Swati knows that her mother and Dr Rajendra like each other but due to societal constraints, both can not think of upgrading their fondness into a life partnership. Swati persuades her mother and Dr Rajendra to get married. His daughter, Anandi is happy that she would get a mother. The marriage takes place and Swati and her mother shift to Dr. Rajendra’s house. Things are now well settled. Both Swati and Anandi gel very well too. Anandi’s marriage with Kapil is also fixed.

One day, Swati finds an old man lying on the road unconscious. She takes him to Dr. Rajendra’s nursing home. The patient come into consciousness and tells his life story to Swati. It becomes apparent that he is Satya Prakash, Sharda’s fiancé and Swati’s real father. If the real story comes into light, it may affect the marriage of Anandi with Kapil. It is also likely to affect the relations of Rajendra and Sharda. But Swati steers the unforeseen problem taking into the confidence Rajendra after revealing him the real story and taking a promise from him that he would not reveal his patient’s identity to her mother. Satya Prakash knows that he has no chance of survival. His wish is to see Sharda for the last time.

On the day of marriage of Anandi with Kapil, Both Rajendra and Swati arrange to bring Satya Prakash to the marriage venue. He gets to see Sharda during the marriage ceremony from a balcony. After the kanyadan ceremony is over, Satya Prakash is happy to see Sharda. With happiness displayed over his face, Satya Prakash dies.

I found the film in keeping with tradition of Prasad Productions which is known for producing films in the genre of family drama. In the standard of 1980s, the story of the film is bold and broad-minded. From the title of the film, it is apparent that it is Meenakshi Seshadri’s film. I have not seen any film of Meenakshi Seshadri. So, it is the first time I am watching her performance in this film which is outstanding. She has displayed all the moods of her character in the film – from a hard-core feminist, a kind hearted daughter for her mother as well for those affected by the prejudice towards them in the society. Her best scene is the poignant moments in the film when she has to solve the issues arising out of a sudden appearance of real father. Madhuri Dikshit as a step sister of Meenakshi Seshadri has a light comical role which she performs very well. She has a lively presence in the film. Shashi Kapoor and Sharmila Tagore in the role of elderly couple look elegant. Dialogues by Rahi Masoom Reza is catchy.

Despite having good share of melodramatic contents, the film is not a tear-jerker. I found the film absorbing.

‘Swati’ (1986) had 5 songs none of which has been represented in the Blog. I present the first song from the film ‘shaadi mubaarak bole shehnaayi’ to appear on the Blog. The song is sung by Anuradha Paudwal and Alka Yagnik. The words are that of Anand Bakshi which are set to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. It is a marriage song picturised on Meenakshi Seshadri and Madhuri Dixit on the occasion of the marriage of their parents Sharmila Tagore and Shashi Kapoor.

With this, ’Swati’ (1986) makes its debut on the Blog.

Today 3rd November’2020 is the eighty-third birth anniversary (born on 03.11.1937) of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar popularly known as Laxmikant of the music duo of Laxmikant-Pyarelal. He would have been eighty-three today if he was alive and around us. But he passed away on 25.05.1998 at the age of sixty years.

As a tribute to him here is a song from the ‘1970’ movie ‘Himmat’.

‘Himmat-1970’ was directed by Ravi Nagaich for ‘Bharti International, Madras’.

It was a social movie. It had Mumtaz, Jeetendra, Prem Chopra, K.N. Singh, Naaz, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Parveen Pal, Aruna Irani Jagdeep, Babi, Agra, Prabhakar Reddy and others.

So far, the following three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Song Posted on
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke 07.07.2013
Das gayi das gayi das gayi 02.08.2013

As we can see from above all the three songs were posted around the same time in 2013. However one song, whose lyrics were noted down during the same time is still pending. Today I am presenting that song from the movie. This song issung by Rafi Saab.

When I shared the above songs, I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

When I went through the list of the songs of this movie in HFGK Vol-IV, I discovered that a surprise song was still remaining. Moreover there are two more songs in this movie that are yet to be covered.

So, this movie has seven songs as per the details given below (in their order of appearance in HFGK (which should be in order as per the movie too);

Song Posted on
Hip hip hurray … aao piyo peene ka zamaana aaya
Hai shukr ki tu hai ladka … kya hota meri tauba agar tu
Das gayi das gayi … naagan si zulfen teri 02.08.2013
Jaal bichhe hain nigaahon ke … gaal gulaabi hai 07.07.2013
Maan jaayiye maan jaayiye 20.06.2013
Main akeli badi mushqil ghadi … baat mere dil ki
Himmat karey insaan to kya ho nahin sakta

All the seven songs in this movie were written by Anand Bakshi and they were composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi. HFGK mentions this song as the ‘theme song’ of the movie and I guess it is played in parts in the movie.

I came across one partial video of this song. The audio is for the full song and lyrics are noted as per audio version of this song,

Let us now enjoy this wonderful song written by Anand Bakshi. I like this song very much and hope you too will enjoy this motivational song …

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 107 # Tribute to Sahir Ludhianvi #
——————————————————————————–

Today 25th October’2020 is the fortieth Remembrance Day of poet-lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi. He was born on 08th March’1921 and that will mark hundred years of his stepping out on this planet earth.

Sahir Ludhianvi left this mortal world on 25th October’1980 due to heart attack when he was playing cards with his friends.

Today remembering Sahir Ludhianvi and paying him a tribute on the blog I am presenting a song penned by him for the ‘1977-movie- Jaagriti’. As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie was first titled as ‘Ajab Teri Sarkar’ and even its song records were released by this title. I think that affected one song of the movie which was supposed to be in four parts, but now only one of its parts is available.

“Jaagriti-1977” was directed by Rajendra Bhatia for ‘Jai Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Vimal Bhatia and Naresh Malhotra. It had Nutan, Vinod Mehra, Reena Roy, Master Satyajeet, Prem Chopra, I.S. Johar, Paintal and Asrani, with Krishnakant, Lily Chakravarty, Padma Chawhan, Ashoo and Junior Mehmood. They were supported by Ram Mohan, Karan Dewan, Sushil Bhatnagar, Birbal, Mounto, Keshav Rana, Madhu Apte, Brook Bond, Jugnu, Aditya Sharma, Manjeet, Salim, Rajesh, Raj Bachhan, Master Ripple, Master Ravi, Manmohan, Aarti, Ram Avtar, Narbada Shankar and Raaj Kishore.

Jayshree T and Helen make special appearances in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Sharad Pilgaonkar and screenplay was written by Sachin Bhowmick. Dialogues of this movie were written by Sagar Sarhadi. Editing of this movie was done by Nand Kumar.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.03.1977.

This movie had four songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Asha Bhonsle, Suman Kalyanpur, Minoo Puroshottam, and Dilraj Kaur were the playback singers for this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Two songs of this movie sung by Asha Bhonsle noted long back are ready with us, however I when I came across this song sung by Suman Kalyanpur I selected it for today’s presentation for ‘special’ reasons. It’s a song praising to almighty and sung by Suman Kalyanpur.

I hope you will like the song too.

With today’s song this movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ makes its debut of the blog (and also join the same titles of movies released in ‘1949’ & ‘1954’. There was one more movie with the same title released in ‘1992’.

With the today’s movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ making its debut on the blog, all movies where Sahir Ludhianvi had written lyrics for movies released from 1971-1980 are now represented on the blog.

I think this movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ must be an obscure movie of its time and may be not seen by many. I would request knowledgeable reader who have watched this movie to throw more light on the movie, its songs and artists in the movie.

let us now listen to today’s song …

16/10/2020 – 72nd Birthday of Hema Malini
————————————————————-
So the dream girl is turning 7 & 2, 72. This same way we should make 2 & 2, 22. Right ? wrong, imdb is making “two and two make five”, in simple translation of the movie “Do aur do paanch”(1980). They have “Athiest” for “Nastik”, “The patriot” for “Deshpremi” and “Blind law” for ‘Andha Kanoon”. This is great going. But they go a step ahead and translate “Naseeb” as “Destiny and Fate”, whereas “Dard” is “Conflict of emotion”. I learnt today that ‘Trishul” is “Trident” and “Kasauti” is “Criterion” in English. Many of the 173 films listed in the filmography have been left alone, to dwell in their hindi/urdu quagmire. Some titles like ‘Shareef Badmash” ‘Sharafat” ‘Sholay” ‘Sachhe ka bolbalaa”, “ Ek chadar maili si”,”Jise tu qubool kar le” and ‘Maan Gaye ustaad” have been wisely given a wide berth.

But they can’t stop from falling into “Seven on seven” for “Satte pe satta”. And they failed to translate “Dharmatma” into “The Godfather” ?. They could have done worse and translated “Raziya Sultan” to “Emperor of Contentment”. I did tell Peevesie’s mom the other day, this translating of movie names business is a good exercise for the brain.

Let us go to the song and birthday girl now. The Wikpedia page on Hema Malini is here and is quite exhaustive. If I have to say something from my own “two paisa worth” opinion, Hema Malini was one courageous female artist, who being a public personality, chose to be Dharmendra’s second wife, rejecting other eligible bachelors such as Sanjeev Kumar and Jeetendra. About Dharmendra’s commitment, there is very filmy dialogue “ekbaar main ne commitment kar li, to phir main apne aap ki bhi nahi suntaa”. Bigger men and personalities have been found to have feet of clay, in similar situations.

The song I have chosen to present today is a much heard and seen song in “Chaayageet”. It was lying buried in the memory and as soon as I saw the title of the song it came back that it is a song where HemaMalini is playing “hide n seek” with kids in the garden. The kids in question are, Master Chintu, Master Raju, Master Alankar, Master Laddu, Padmini Kolhapure, Madhu Malini, Master chicoo, Bunty, Bobby etc. all child artist. The list is sourced from two different sources, so could be inaccurate. There is sad version also of the song, where these kids are singing and searching for Hema Malini.

This is the brief story line of the film, which stars, Ashok Kumar, Dharmendra, Asrani, Prem Chopra etc.:

Sapna, who works under a number of aliases, is a modern day female Robin Hood, who steals from whoever she can, so that she can maintain a home for orphans. One day she meets with wealthy and eligible bachelor, AnupamVerma, and poses as a wealthy princess. He takes her to meet his grandparents, and even lets her live in his palatial bunglow. But soon Sapna’s past catches up with her, when she is recognized as Champabai, a prostitute.

The creative team is the prolific Laxmikant-Pyarelal-AnandBakshi, with Lata Mangeshkar singing both versions with few un-credited kids voices and chorus.
