The film that we welcome today into Yippeee-land is the 1958 production titled ‘Baaghi Sipaahi’. The film has a total of 8 songs, seven of which have already been posted here. The details of the previous songs posted is given below.

 

Chinchana Papul Chinchana Papul 11562 16-Nov-15 Shailendra
Samaa Ye Pyaar Ka Bahaar Ke Ye Mele 11606 28-Nov-15 Shailendra
O Beraham Tere Sitam 11642 9-Dec-15 Shailendra
Ae Dilbar Dilwaale 12451 14-Oct-16 Shailendra
Maan Bhi Le Ae Dil Tu Apni Haar 12948 20-Feb-17 Shailendra
Ruk Jaa Musaafir Pal Bhar Ko 13761 23-Nov-17 Hasrat Jaipuri
Muskuraati Zindagi Ko Chhod Ke 13946 20-Jan-18 Hasrat Jaipuri

 

The film was produced under the banner of VP Productions, Bombay. It is a historical costume drama, produced and directed by Bhagwan Das Verma. The cast of actors is led by Ranjan and Madhubala. The other players include Poornima, Chandrashekhar, Om Prakash, Sapru, Gope, S Nazeer, Nishi, Renu Maakad, Pal Sharma, Gajendra etc.

The songs of this film are created by the team of Shailendra, Hasrat Jaipuri and Shankar Jaikishan. Out of the eight songs in this film, five are written by Shailendra and three are from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri. Today’s Yippeee song is also written by Hasrat Jaipuri.

This film is a remake of an earlier film by the same name. In 1936, the film ‘Baaghi Sipaahi’ was released under the banner of East India Film Company, and was directed by Abdul Rashid Kardar. In this 1936 version, Gul Hamid played the lead role, and it was cited as an “important film” for him. Patience Cooper, Bimla Kumari, Mazhar Khan, Lalita Pawar, Indubala, Anees, Azurie and Mohammed Ishaaq also played significant roles along with Gul Hamid.

Now this 1936 film, in turn was based on a 1935 Hollywood production ‘Cardinal Richelieu’, released under the banner of Twentieth Century Pictures, directed by Rowland V Lee. The primary cast of actors includes George Arliss, Maureen O’Sullivan, Edward Arnold and Cesar Romero.

And then, going back further, this 1935 Hollywood film was based on the 1839 play ‘Richelieu’ by Edward Bulwer-Lytton depicting the life of the great seventeenth century French statesman Cardinal Richelieu and his dealings with King Louis XIII. Further explorations reveal that the real life Cardinal Richelieu had a very colourful and chequered life in the court of the French kings. He rose to be the Chief Minister in the court of King Louis XIII. He wielded considerable power and influence over the government, role of the church, foreign policy, and foreign military campaigns.

In his later years, Richelieu faced a plot that threatened to remove him from power. He had introduced a young man named Henri Coiffier de Ruzé, marquis de Cinq-Mars to King Louis XIII’s court. This young man was the son of a close friend. Richelieu had hoped that Cinq-Mars would become King Louis’ favourite, so that he could indirectly exercise greater influence over the monarch’s decisions. Cinq-Mars did become the royal favourite, but, contrary to Cardinal Richelieu’s expectations, he was not easy to control. The young man realized that Richelieu would not permit him to gain political power. In 1641, he participated in a failed conspiracy against Richelieu, but he himself was not discovered. Then, in the following year, he schemed once again with leading nobles (including the King’s brother, the duc d’Orléans) to raise a rebellion. He signed a secret agreement with the King of Spain, who promised to aid the rebels. However, Richelieu’s spy service discovered the plot, and seized a copy of the said agreement with the King of Spain. Cinq-Mars was promptly arrested and executed. Although King Louis approved the capital punishment, he grew more distant from Richelieu as a result.

These events form the main story line of the 1839 play, and were later adapted into the Hollywood production and then the Hindi films.

Today’s Yippeee song for this 1958 film is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This is a sad song, that has been rendered soulfully by Lata ji. On screen we see Madhubala listening to this song being lip-synced by another actress that I am not able to identify. I request other readers to please help identify this lady.

With this song, we now welcome this 1958 film to join the list of films with all their songs covered on our blog.

Song – Dil Lagaane Waale Mat Sun Meri Kahaani  (Baaghi Sipaahi) (1958) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Shankar Jaikishan

 

Lyrics

dil lagaane waale
mat sun meri kahaani
dil lagaane waale
mat sun meri kahaani
dhadhkega dil jahaan ka
sun me meri zubaani
dhadhkega dil jahaan ka
sun me meri zubaani

maine apne dil ko
ik chaand se lagaaya
palkon ki chhaon daal ke
dil mein usey bithaaya
wo aasmaan ka pyaara
phir bhi na muskuraaya
jalti hain tamannaayen
roti hai zindgani
dil lagaane waale
mat sun meri kahaani

hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmmm

paaya hai kaun ab tak
baahon mein aasmaan ko
bulbul ke aasnuon pe
gham hoga baaghbaan ko
dil jeetna hai mushkil
chaahe phook aashiaan ko
kab qaid mein rahi hai
chaahat bhari jawaani
dil lagaane waale
mat sun meri kahaani

socha ye kyon na maine
parwaana noor ka hai
socha ye kyon na maine
chanda chakor ka hai
dil dete waqt na socha
dil dete waqt na socha
ye dil bhi aur ka hai
. . .

Hindi script lyrics (Provided by Sudhir)
———————————————————
दिल लगाने वाले
मत सुन मेरी कहानी
दिल लगाने वाले
मत सुन मेरी कहानी
धड़केगा दिल जहां का
सुन के मेरी ज़ुबानी
धड़केगा दिल जहां का
सुन के मेरी ज़ुबानी

मैंने अपने दिल को
इक चाँद से लगाया
पलकों की छाँव डाल के
दिल में उसे बिठाया
वो आसमां का प्यारा
फिर भी ना मुस्कुराया
जलती हैं तमन्नाएं
रोती है ज़िंदगानी
दिल लगाने वाले
मत सुन मेरी कहानी

हम्मम हम्मम हम्मम हम्मम

पाया है कौन अब तक
बाहों में आसमां को
बुलबुल के आंसुओं पे
ग़म होगा बाग़बान को
दिल जीतना है मुश्किल
चाहे फूक आशियाँ को
कब क़ैद में रही है
चाहत भरी जवानी
दिल लगाने वाले
मत सुन मेरी कहानी

सोचा ये क्यों ना मैंने
परवाना नूर का है
सोचा ये क्यों ना मैंने
चंदा चकोर का है
दिल देते वक़्त ना सोचा
दिल देते वक़्त ना सोचा
ये दिल भी और का है

Blog Day : 3469 Post No. : 13928

The New Year according to Gregorian Calendar started 16 days ago on 1 january 2018. Like most people, we too made new year resolutions. Unlike most people, our new year resolutions of posting one “debutant” song and one “YIPPEE” song daily is still being followed regularly.

Day before yesterday (14 january 2018) was Makar Sakranti and that marked the beginning of another new year, viz Hindu new year. Why we should not make new year resolutions on this occasion as well. In our case, we can resolve to continue our new year resolutions of Gregorian calendar new year. 🙂

The commencement of Hindu new year coincided with the blog clocking one crore (ten millions) visitors to the blog. Is it a coincidence that it happened on this day ! Or is it divine scheme of things. The blog began just under ten years ago on 19 july 2008. Why this date and no other day ? It was much later (in fact only in 2017) that I realised that the Hindu month of Shrawan had started on 19 july 2008, which traditionally provided the most number of songs to HFM. So, I feel that the same divine scheme of things were being played out and implemented at that time as well.

That is not all. Much later, we posted out song post number 11111, which discussed a special song that had voices of four legendary singers. When Sudhir Ji, the author of that wrteup looked back at the blog posts number 1, 11, 111 and 1111, he discovered an amazing pattern. These four songs were solo songs sung by the same four singers, and in the same order in which they lend their voices in the song post number 11111 !

That is not all. I have noticed coincidences involving me that are even more amazing, and they are not limited to this blog. I have shared one amazing coincidence with my friends (including some in this blog as well) that will convince people that these coincidences are some grander scheme of things planned by higher forces. 🙂

Coming to my observations that we need to reiterate our new year resolutions (Gregorian calender version) on new year (Hindu calender version) as well. On the first day of this year (viz Yesterday 15 january 2018), only the first half of the half the resolution (viz posting a debutant song for the day) was fulfilled till late in the night. Sudhir Ji had posted a “debutant” post for the day. I had noticed that he had planned for a “YIPPEE” post as well. But seeing that the “debutant” post had appeared so late, I was afraid that it might become a race against time to fully fulfil the new year resolution. So I decided to lend a helping hand to Sudhir Ji. I prepared this “YIPPEE” writeup and I decided to post it in case Sudhir Ji was strapped for time (which he certainly is these days).

Fortunately, I found that Sudhir Ji succeeded in posting the YIPPEE writeup just in the nick of time yesterday night, and it was that rollicking title song of “China Town”(1962), viz. Rangeen bahaaron se hai gulzaar China Town.

So the song that I had kept as the backup YIPPEE song was not required.

Today (16 january 2018), we find ourself in the same situation as yesterday. The “debutant” movie of the day was done and dusted with first thing in the morning by Sudhir Ji. Sudhir Ji then asked me for the list of YIPPiable movies, aiming to post the YIPPEE movie of today as well, while I concentrated on the O P Nayyar tribute post.

After the O P Nayyar tribute post was published late, I found that Sudhir Ji has prepared for the YIPPEE song of the day, and it was a song that was not available online as far as I can tell. But like last night, we are against racing against time and I do not find Sudhir Ji at the keyboard right now. So I feel that I need to step in and publish the backup YIPPEE song that I had prepared yesterday. That way, Sudhir Ji can publish his YIPPEE article on the next day.

The song that I have in mind is from “Khazaana”(1951). It is sung by Lata. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by C Ramchandra.

This song, the eighth and final song from “Khazaana”(1951) is a “joie de vivre” song sung on a moonlit night by a lady in love. This must have been the brief by the music director to the lyricist and what superb lyrics Rajinder Krishan comes up with. And the rendering of this song is divine. After listening to the honey like voice of Lata, I would not like to listen to this voice in any other voice. This is inspired singing at its peak.

“Khazaana”(1951) was produced by Bakshi Jang Bahadur and directed by M Sadiq for Bakshi Brothers, Bombay. This movie had Madhubala, Nasir Khan, Gope, Om Prakash, Cuckoo, Ramesh Thakur, Gujri, Abbas etc. in it.

So going by the cast, it is clear that this song was picturised on Madhubala. Lata singing and Madhubala lip syncing. It would have been a sight for the eyes if the video was available. But it seems that only the audio of this song is available and that too has ended up becoming an obscure song with time. The song deserves to be much better known among music lovers. It is an archtypical “chhaayaageet” song, best heard at night time, with majority of people fast asleep in the comforts of their “razaai”. 🙂

With this song, “Khazaana”(1951) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.
