I remember, when I was a growing child, I used to hear the name of film personality called ‘Sajjan’ by elders at home, or likeminded cine-goers who were family friends of my parents.
I used to wonder who exactly this person was in the movies I was watching. It continued for many years and all this while I had no clue about this person.

When I was a grown-up boy (😉) and was studying in 11-12th standard I watched ‘Johny Mera Naam-1970’ in 1983-85. And here for the first time I get to know who exactly the actor named ‘Sajjan’ was. After that whichever movies new and older I watched I enjoyed his performance on screen. In the background his image of a good character actor (that build up in my mind from the discussions at home) was always there in my mind. So, I was also enjoying his negative roles in many black & white movies of fifties and sixties.

Aftergoing through his filmography, I can recall watching many of these movies where he played various roles particularly with negative shades or sometime being the associate of the of the main villain of the movie, or the different character roles.

But before that he had acted as a hero or second to the hero in the movies of fifties and sixties. There is a long list of the movies he was a part of; however, I am not listing them all here today.

Regulars on this blog would wonder why I am discussing Sajjan today. The reason is- today (15 January 2020) is his birth anniversary.

Sajjan Lal Purohit was born on 15th January 1921 in Jaipur, Rajasthan (then Jaipur State of British India). That way today marks his 100th birth anniversary.

I had not read about him in the details and maybe he must have been discussed on the blog which I might not be aware of, so I have taken some information from Wikipedia and reproducing the same here.

Wikipedia mentions that he graduated from the Jaswant College, Jodhpur and he desired to become a lawyer and not an actor.

Wikipedia also mentions the following regarding his career in the movies;

In 1941, he arrived in Calcutta and worked as an apprentice in a laboratory of East India Company. His initial breakthrough in films was as an extra in films such as Masoom (1941) and Chowringhee (1942). Sajjan left Calcutta during World War II and reached Mumbai. In Mumbai he worked as an assistant to famous director Kidar Sharma. At that time, the great showman Raj Kapoor was also worked as an assistant to Kidar Sharma. He also worked as assistant to Gajanan Jagirdar and Vakil Sahib and got Rs.35 as salary.
A poet by heart, Sajjan showed his talent when he wrote dialogues for Meena (1944) and lyrics for Door Chalen (1946) and Dhanyavad (1948). Sajjan also acted in small roles in Prithvi Theatre. His acting debut film was Dhanyavad. After that, Bombay Theatre’s Muqaddar was released in 1950. The heroine was Nalini Jaywant.
By then Sajjan was well established in the films. In the 1950s and 1960s, Sajjan acted as hero or side-hero in films such as; Sainya, Rail Ka Dibba, Bahana, Sheesha, Malkin, Nirmohi, Kasturi, Mehmaan, Lagan, Girl School, Paridhaan, Ghar-Ghar Mein Diiwali, Haa-Haa-Hee-Hee-Hoo-Hoo, Poonam Jhanjhar and Halla-Gulla. As hero, his last film was Kabuliwala, Do Chor, and as an artist he last appeared in the 1986 release Shatru with Rajesh Khanna. An artist of more than 150 films, Sajjan also worked in TV serials. In Vikram Aur Betaal he played Betaal. His other serial was Lena-Dena.

I had watched many episodes of ‘Vikram Aur Betaal’ on TV and I liked Sajjan playing Betaal very much.

Sajjan passed away at the age of seventy-nine on 17th May’2000 in Mumbai (then Bombay).

As a tribute to him today I am presenting a song from ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ which was picturized on him (part-1 of the song). I had noted this song long time back but recently when I was going through the list of pending songs and came across this song, I watched it again and noted that it was Sajjan who was lip-syncing this song so I thought to present it on his anniversary.

This song is shown happening in a ‘village temple’ as a part of ‘sandhya-aarti-bhajan’ where Sajjan and many others are present (villagers and temple associates). A grief-stricken Jeetendra is also seen taking resort in the temple and sitting in ‘dhyaan’ while listening the ‘bhajan’ and I think he remains in this situation for a long time (😊) because by the time the song ends Jeetendra had a ‘beard’ of many days.

Part-2 of the song is played in the back-ground while Jeetendra is shown lying on a hospital bed, but as the song gets played, he regains some strength to leave the hospital without caring the ‘staff’ present there and reach the temple after crossing ‘fields’ etc.

HFGK mentions this song as a one song and not in parts.

I have not watched this movie so I request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

So far, two songs from this movie ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ have been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the third song from this movie to appear on the blog.

Let us now listen to today’s song which is from the movie ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ as mentioned above. Lyrics are by Neeraj and music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.
Manna Dey is the singer of this song.

Mohammed Rafi – 96th birth anniversary

—– Waqt ——-

Yeh waqt kya hai
yeh kya hai aakhir ke jo musalsal guzar raha hai
yeh jab na guzra thha
tab kahan thha
guzar gayaa hai to ab kahan hai
kahin to hogaa
kahan se aaya kidhar gayaa hai
yeh kab se kab tak ka silsilaa hai
yeh waqt kya hai
yeh waqi’ye
haadse
tasaadum
harek gham
aur har ek masarrat
har ek azziyat
har ek lazzat
har ik tabassum
har ek aansoo
har ek naghma
har ek khushboo
woh zakhm ka dard ho
ko ho lams ka jaadoo
khud apni awaaz ho ki mahaul ki sadaayen
yeh zehan mein banti aur bigadti hui fazaayen
woh fikr mein aaye zalzale hon ki dil ki halchal
tamaam ehsaas
saare jazbe
ye jaise patte hain
behte paani ki sateh par
jaise tayrte hain
abhi yehaan hain
abhi wahaan hain
aur ab hain ojhal
dikhaayi detaa nahin hai lekin
yeh kuchh to hai
jo ki beh rahaa hai
yeh kaisa dariya hai
kin pahaadon se aa rahaa hai
yeh kis samandar ko jaa rahaa hai

yeh waqt kya hai
kabhi kabhi main yeh sochtaa hoon
ki chalti gaadi se ped dekho
to aisa lagtaa hai
doosri simt jaa rahe hain
magar haqueeqat mein
ped apni jagah khade hain
to kya yeh mumkin hai
saarisadiyaan
qataar-andar-qataar apni jagah khadi hon
yeh waqt saakit ho
aur ham hi guzar rahe hon
is ek lamhe mein
saare lamhe
tamaam sadiyaan chhupi hui hon
na koyi ‘aayinda
na guzishtaa
jo ho chukaa hai
jo ho rahaa hai
jo hone waala hai
ho rahaa hai
main sochtaa hoon
ki kya yeh mumkin hai
sach ye ho
ki safar mein ham hain
guzarte ham hain
jise samajhte hain ham
guzarta hai
wo thhamaa hai
guzarta hai ye thhamaa huaa hai
ik aayi hai ye bataa huaa hai
hai munjamid
yaa pighal rahaa hai
kise khabar hai
kise pataa hai
yeh waqt kya hai

yeh kaaynaat-e-azeem
lagtaa hai
apni azmat se
aaj bhi mutma’een nahin hai
ki lamha lamha woh
wasee’a-tar aur wasee’a-tar hoti jaa rahi hai
yeh apni baahen pasaarti hai
yeh kehkashaaon ki ungliyon se
nayi khalaaon ko chhoo rahi hai
agar yeh sach hai
to har tasavvur ki had se baahar
magar kahin par
yaqeenan aisa koyi khalaa hai
ki jis ko
in kehkashaaon ki ungliyon ne
ab tak chhuaa nahin hai
khalaa
jahaan kuchh huaa nahin hai
khalaa
ki jis ne kisi se bhi ‘kun’ sunaa nahin hai
jahaan abhi tak khudaa nahinhai
wahan
koyi waqt bhi na hogaa
ye kaayenaat-e-azeem
ik din
chhuegi
is an-chhuye khalaa ko
aur apne saare wajood se
jab pukaaregi
‘kun’
to waqt ko bhi janam milegaa
agar janam hai to maut bhi hai

main sochtaa hoon
yeh sach nahin hai
ki waqt ki koyi ibtidaa hai na intehaa hai
yeh dor lambi bahot hai
lekin
kahin to is dor ka siraa hai
abhi yeh insaan ulajh rahaa hai
ki waqt ke is qafas mein
paida huaa
yahin woh palaa badhaa hai
magar use ‘ilm ho gayaa hai
ke waqt ke iss qafas se baahar bhi ik fazaa hai
to sochtaa hai
vo puchhtaa hai
yeh waqt kya hai

– Javed Akhtar –

I had heard a part of the above poem and just decided to reproduce it in a post. But while typing the whole saga, it lost me on the way to the end. I am able to understand it word to word, but to understand what exactly Javedsahab is trying to say or ‘in ke kehne ka tatparya kya hai’, I will have to go deep. Or maybe not so deep and what he says is what he means.
______________________________________________

This terrible year is coming to an end. Human kind has endured a test of psychological strength this year. And has learned (hopefully) that even if places of worship are not open, the Almighty is reachable from anywhere, for the universe, the world and its occupants, owners and tenants, wheelers and dealers, the powerful and the poor, the destitute and the able bodied, are all His creations. The ‘khalaa’ that Javed Akhtar refers to in the poem above, is also the creation of the Almighty creator. So is the concept if ‘waqt’. Whether it is running away from you or towards you. The time is allotted to us, to live on this earth peacefully with other creations. Before I move on, ‘khalaa’ is space, in worldly terms is means ‘empty space’ and in celestial terms it is infinite.

Its Mohammed Rafi Sahab’s 96th birth anniversary on 24/12/2020. Usually for Rafi sahab’s anniversary posts, or for the century posts, Raja ji is invited to do the honors of writing a special post. But I am seizing the opportunity, this time round. It is Rafi Sahab birth anniversary post as well as the 3100th songs post by Rafi sahib on the blog. This post is also my 300th song post, so a special Rafi song is called for this occasion.

Two months ago, I was looking for a song by Usha Timothy to post for her birthday on 8th October. I found a song by her, but it turned out to be a group song. The audio clip was 11 minutes long. The song itself is more than 9 minutes. Myswar.com listed this as a two part song one by Suman Kalyanpur and Usha Timothy and another by Mohammad Rafi and Manna Dey. It is from the 1966 film “Sunehre Kadam” and is composed by Bulo C. Rani. The lyricist is Nyay Sharma.

This is a very special song I have come to realize it while writing the lyrics. I will have to list them so that I don’t miss any points:

1. It has the longest solo rally, for a group song by Rafi sahab and large part of this rally is with minimal music.
2. This must be the only song with these four singers together.
3. The way the repetition of lines is done throughout the song, with singing of the same line in a different way. This is especially true of Rafi sahab’s repeated lines and also Manna De’s. In Rafi sahab’s songs, invariably it can be taken for granted, that the repetition of lines will have variations.
4. The song is a like a relay race, and the one starting it is doing the winner’s lap, with the trophy.

Actually Manna De has a small part to sing but Usha Timothy is having very few lines to sing. Seeing the video was a surprise again. It is a competition sort of song with two artists performing on stage and singing is done by Agha in Rafi’s voice and Shashi Kala in Suman Kalyanpur’s voice. Rehman is seen standing next to Agha and enjoying his singing, so is a female standing next to Shashi Kala similarly amused by the song. The expressions of quite enjoyment on Rehman’s face can be described perfectly in one word, i. e. “Mehzooz”.

A comment on youtube said that this song based on raag zhinjhoti/maanjhkhamaj. Whether it is true or not, the song does sound unique and stand out as a song to be savoured.

These are the songs from the movie already posted in the blog :

Song Date of posting Remarks
Na baaz aayaa muqadaar mujhe mitaane se 24 June 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Naazuk hoon albeli hoon 2 August 2011 MD- S Mohinder
Maangne se jo maut mil jaati 5 October 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Ye ghar aapkaa hai chale aayiye jee 25 October 2011 MD-Bulo C Rani
Na to inkaar kiya na to iqraar kiya 29 October 2020 MD-Bulo C Rani

The song is like a gorgeous long meal, a smorgasbord. Mohammed Rafi sahab is singing different portions of this song, with relish. And we listeners are mesmerised. The bass of Manna Dey’s parts is in tune with Rafi sahab’s sometimes sweet, sometimes mischievous, nasheeli, some with smooth softness. We can’t actually eat this, but we consume it and our senses absorb the nuances of the song. I just wish the parts where Suman Kalyanpure and Usha Timothy are singing, could be softened a little. They bring a mesmerised person back to earth, but Rafi sahab is back again in the last part of the song, in tandem with Manna Dey and they both bring it to a level field so we are not too sorry the song has ended, and there is no more of it to be heard for the first time.

I actually looked far and wide, to find if there is still more left to be found of this song. Lyrics by Nyay Sharma are equally good and make the most of the tune of the song. But for the large parts of the song, the words were redundant I felt, it was the raag and the rhythm and soft vocal voice singing the words which became paramount. This is a rarity, as it happens only with classical raagaa’s. The only other time I can recall this happening with me, was when I heard Kumar Gandharv here .
Is this what is known as a sum total greater than its parts?

“Kundan”(1955) was produced and directed by Sohrab Modi for Minerva Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Nimmi, Ulhas, Sunil Dutt, Pran, Om Prakash, Baby Naaz, Manorama, Roopmala, Murad, Jeevan, Sadat Ali, Kumkum etc in it.

The movie was based on Victor Hugo’s novel “Les Miserables” which was adapted for this Hindi movie by Pt Sudarshan.

The movie had ten songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Kundan”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Manna Dey. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

The song is picturised as a background song as Sohrab Modi is shown going far away from the home of Murad (as far as I can tell from the picturisation). I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke (Kundan)(1955) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Lyrics

hosh mein aa
o moorkh bande ae ae
upar hai bhagwaan aan
sab karmon ka wo hai bhedi ee ee
le usko pehchaan aan

na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke
na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke
dikha de zamaane ko insaan ban ke
dikha de zamaane ko insaan ban ke
insaan ban ke
na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke

zara uthh ke jeevan ka naksha badal de ae
zara uthh ke jeevan ka naksha badal de
hai manzil ki hasrat to rasta badal de ae
to rasta badal de ae
to rasta badal de ae
chala chal bhalaayi ka toofaan ban ke
chala chal bhlaayi ka toofaan ban ke
toofan banke
na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke
na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke

tu kab tak bhala aa aa aa
tu kab tak bhala haath malta rahega
ye kismat ka chakkar to chalta rahega
ye kismat ka chakkar to chalta rahega
mita de gareebi ko balwaan ban ke
balwaan ban ke
na kar paap duniya mein naadaan ban ke

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 100

Blog Day :

4509 Post No. : 16053

Today’s song is a multi-singer song. It is from the 1976 released Madan Mohla produced and directed “Dus Numbri”. It had Hema Malini {who seemed to be favourite of all the heroes of the 50s & 60s and wanted a lease in their career ;-)} Manoj Kumar and a whole lot of Manoj Kumar-movie-regulars viz Premnath, Pran, Kamini Kaushal and Bindu. The movie was a musical with six songs.

I have very vague memories of what the movie was all about. Something to do with Manoj Kumar and Hema’s families being friends at the start of the movie. Then Premnath gets into a group that has interests in printing fake currency, which Om Shivpuri or Pinchoo Kapoor (Hema’s father) accidentally discovers and so is promptly bumped off, which drives her mother crazy due to shock (mother is also played by Hema, that is shown in Kamini Kaushal’s flashback). Some twist in the story leads Hema to a local Aunty’s adda (tavern) and Manoj Kumar becomes a “Dus Numbri” who is out to expose the evil doers of society. He has Pran (a constable) shadowing him for most of the movie and who is later revealed to be a SP or Commissioner. Then we have Bindu, a dancer, who has some clue to the gang of currency-fakers and that gives us a situation for a song where we have Premnath, Manoj Kumar and Pran (in disguise of course) trying to outwit Bindu into parting with the die of the currency printer. Simple 🙂 . It is later that we come to know that even Bindu is also a cop-in-disguise. Here I must add that only Manoj Kumar’s horrible getup doesn’t give him away but all the other two actors can easily be recognized.

Two songs from the movie is already present on the blog. One was contribution by Avinashji –Ye duniya ek numberi to main dus numberi and other by Maheshji- Na tum ho yaar aaloo na hum hain yaar gobhi.
.
Here is the third song with Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey and Mukesh as playback singers. Let us enjoy it and wish Prem Nath Malhotra on his birthday today. He would have been 94 today.

He started his journey in Bollywood with “Ajit” in 1948 (of which we don’t have any songs on the blog). The same year we had Premnath in “Aag” his first association with Raj Kapoor and was RK’s debut as producer- director.

Incidentally Raj Kapoor’s wife Krishna was Premnath’s sister and his other sister Uma is Prem Chopra’s wife. Premnath’s brothers Narendranath and Rajendranath were also actors. He married Bina Rai, also an actress, in 1953 and his son’s Prem Kishen and Kailashnath (was called Monty in films) were actors. Prem Kishen’s daughter Akanksha is an actress and son Siddharth Malhotra is a director. (Even in these modern times there is a case of same-name confusion:- there is a Sidharth Malhotra who made his acting debut in Karan Johar’s “Student Of the Year” in 2012 who has no connection to the Premnath family).

We have many movies where Premnath has had his brothers-in-law as co-actors. We have seen him as father of Dimple Kapadia in “Bobby” which was his nephew Rishi Kapoor’s debut as an adult. That is also the first role of Premnath that I recollect. Can’t get enough of the head of a fishing community Braganza who had a peculiar way of speaking.

It was later when some black-n-white were telecast by doordarshan that I learnt that Premnath the actor first began as a hero to the likes of Madhubala, Bina Rai, Nimmi etc.I loved his acting in “Johny Mera Naam”. As also the lovable mama of Hema Malini in “Aap Beeti”, sardaar of “Roti Kapda aur Makaan”, etc. His was the central character of “Dharmatma”. He turned producer director after his marriage to Bina Rai. His last screen appearance was in 1985 in “Hum Dono” after which he reitred from acting. He passed away in 1992- 18 days before his 66th birthhday.

Remembering Premnath !

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 110 # Tribute to actor Sanjeev Kumar #
—————————————————————————————

Today 6th November’2020 is the thirty-fifth ‘Remembrance Day’ of India’s one of the most admired and finest actors Sanjeev Kumar. He was born as Haribhai Jethalal Jariwala on in Surat on 9th July’1938. And he passed away due to a severe ‘heart attack’ on 6th November’1985.

A stint at a film school led him to Hindi film Industry and from there it was no looking back for him. He soon proved his versatility and genius in acting and also won prestigious National Film awards for Best actor two times- for ‘Dastak-1970’ and ‘Koshish-1972’.

And after that many awards and praises continued to shower on him for his various roles and class acting in movies.
But destiny has something else in store for him. While he survived a heart attack in 1976 and after that went to US to have a by-pass surgery, but it didn’t help and he suffered a massive heart attack on 06.11.1985 and passed away at the young age of forty-eight only. Though he played many roles of older age person in movies in real life he didn’t get a chance to reach that ‘older age’.

Sanjeev Kumar was an actor that everyone in Our group of cricket loving friends in our colony admired, even though they were ‘great’ fan of someone else.

I am reminded of many of his roles and the movies he acted in when I try to go down mewmory lane. But I will leave that for another post in the future. (I am also not giving here the other details of this movie as per my normal practice and leaving the same to be given with other song/s of this movie to be posted on the blog in near future).

I will now come to today’s song. It is from a movie which I remembered watching during those growing years between 1975-1980.

The movie is a ‘1972’ movie ‘Rivaaj’.

Two songs of this movie, both shared by me, have been posted on the blog earlier which were in my memory. Today’s song was also shared by me around the same time, but somehow it remains to be posted.

I will reproduce the text of my mail that I write to Atul ji then while sharing this song;

“Very happy to share this song, as it was in my vague memory and time to time haunt me some time. finally, I got it and now sharing to you.
though I do not remember the film completely now, but here in this song I got this saffron clad SANJEEV KUMAR as I had mentioned while sharing first song from this 1972 – RIVAAJ.

I am also reproducing a brief about this movie as taken from ‘Wikipedia’ here;

“Mala Sinha plays a young widow and she stays in the temple with her father Pujariji or temple priest played by Nazir Hussain. In the temple itself she meets Shekhar, Sanjeev Kumar, where both fall in love and want to get married, when opposition comes from Shekhar’s mother, Pandari Bai, who is against child widow’s re-marriage. She gets her son married to a woman of her choice played by Zeb Rehman. Lakshmi starts leading the life of a widow. Shekhar’s wife is blessed with a daughter Rajji and starts leading a contented married life, when destiny jolts him with loss of his job and death of his wife with cancer. Rajji happens to witness him lighting the pyre of her mother by Hindu custom, is unable to understand, and suffers a psychological shock thinking that her father had burnt her mother alive and would burn her too! She starts hating him and is scared of him, which further deepens the pain and loss of Shekhar.

Here respite comes for Rajji when her grandmother tells her that her mother will come back in the form of a plant or take up another woman’s form and return to her beloved daughter from God. Rajji goes to the cremation grounds again and sees a plant where her mother had been cremated. She starts talking to it as if it was her mother. Lakshmi who had come to the river nearby, chances to hear Rajji talking to the plant and filled with emotion starts talking back from the back of a small temple of God Hanuman, pretending to be her mother. Rajji is overjoyed and the ritual is repeated everyday with Lakshmi being unaware as to whose daughter Rajji is.
Meanwhile Shekhar saves the life of the wheel chair ridden sister and heiress Sulochana Latkar of Shatrughan Sinha, who appoints him as her estate manager, much to the chagrin of her brother. He is involved in saving her assets from her rogue brother many times which creates ill-will amongst them.

Shekhar is also told by his mother that Rajji meets some woman pretending to be her dead mother and Shekhar discovers that she is no other than Lakshmi who loves his daughter as her own now. Again, Lakshmi is derided by Shekhar’s mother as well as her own father Pujari ji for dreaming of having a family.

Shatrughan Sinha kidnaps Rajji and there ensues a bloody struggle which however nasty, brings back and unites Rajji, Lakshmi and Shekhar, bringing them back to the precincts of the holy Jagdish Ji Temple, the bells resounding the power and glory of God.”

Let us now listen to the today’s song and watch the great Sanjeev Kumar in ‘two-state’ of mind – ‘one totally devastated’ and want to ‘end the world’ as he has lost his beloved wife, and the other one pacifying him to ‘think and hope good fortunes coming to him in the future’.

The lyrics of this song are written by Kaifi Azmi and it is composed to music by Shankar-Jaikishan. Mohd Rafi and Manna Dey are the singers.

Blog Day : 4468 Post No. : 15961

‘Angulimaal’ (1960) was directed by Vijay Bhatt of Prakash Pictures which had been known for producing mythological and historical films among other genres. The film was a presentation of Thai Information Services Co Ltd. It is said that on the occasion of 2500th birth anniversary of Lord Buddha, Thai Government financed the film. I find from the credit title of the film that a Thai sounding name, Viratna Vidyabanich was as one of the production controllers. The star cast consisted of Bharat Bhushan, Nimmi, Anita Guha, Manmohan Krishan, Achala Sachdev, Chandrasekhar, Prem Adib, Ulhas, Kesri, Ram Mohan, Helen, Bimla, Sheila Kashmiri and Master Vinod Kumar (Vinod Mehra). The dialogues were written by a well-known Hindi writer and poet, Bhavani Prasad Mishra, the only film for which he wrote dialogues. Earlier, Bhavani Prasad Mishra had written lyrics for ‘Swayam Siddha’ (1949).

The story of the film is adapted from one of the Buddhist scriptures – ‘Angulimaal Sutta’. The story was said to have been in existence since 5th-4th Century BC which have been passed on to the next generations in the oral traditions until it was recorded in writing in the later centuries. As such, the original story of Angulimaal may have gone through some additions as it passed on to next generation in oral format. It is said that the family background of Angulimaal was not mentioned in the original story. Later on, it got incorporated in the story.

The story depicted in the film is as under:

On a stormy night, a son is born to the Royal Priest (Manmohan Krishan) of a kingdom. The Royal astrologer predicts that the boy would become a dreaded killer in his later years. The royal priest takes his new born son to the King (Prem Adib) for his blessings. The royal astrologer, however, suggests to the King that the boy should be killed to prevent him from becoming a dreaded killer. The King overrules him by saying that it is not right to kill a child when he has not committed a crime. Instead, King names him as ‘Ahinsak’ (Non-Violent) and orders that Ahinsak should be given proper education and the cultural upbringing so that he is prevented from becoming a killer.

During the 8th birthday celebration of King’s daughter, Princess Maya (Nimmi), King finds Ahinsak (Vinod Kumar) the most intelligent among the boys present at the occasion. He orders the Acharya (Ulhas) to take Ahinsak to his Gurukul for further studies. In the Gurukul, Ahinsak is introduced to Maruti, Dhanpal and Krishna among others. In the Gurukul, because of his all-round excellence in studies, sports, horse-riding and behaviour, Ahinsak becomes the darling of Acharya and his wife Gurumata (Anita Guha).

The boys have now grown up. Maruti (Chandrasekhar), Krishna (Kesri) and Dhanpal have become jealous of Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan) as they cannot compete with him in any field. Another reason for jealousy for Maruti is that Princess Maya likes Ahinsak and Maruti is eyeing on marrying her. So, all three of them conspire to poison the mind of Acharya against Ahinsak by making some false allegations. One of the false allegations made by Dhanpal is that Ahinsak is having illicit relations with Gurumata. In the spur of the moment, Ahinsak kills Dhanpal for making a wild allegation. With this incidence, Acharya thinks that the prediction of the astrologer about Ahinsak becoming a killer may come out to be true. He expels Ahinsak from the Gurukul. His parent and his friends also shun him for life. The king announces a booty on his head. In the circumstances, he had no alternative but to run away in the forest where he makes friendship with animals but hates human beings. He starts the ruthlessly killings of human being whenever he sees them. In this process, he starts collecting a finger each of his killer. He takes a pledge to kill a thousand persons and to make a garland of fingers (Angulimaal) of those killed by him.

Angulimaal is now one short of his target of 1000 killings. He is about to kill a person in the darkness without knowing as to who the person was. The person happens to be his mother who had stepped out in search of her son and has been wandering in the forest for many days. When Angulimaal was about to kill her, he finds his hand holding a sword getting locked. He tries many times but his handis not able to raise the sword to kill the person. Then he sees a divine person appearing in front of him who is none other than Lord Buddha. Angulimaal tries to kill him but he is not able to catch-up with him. In desperation, Angulimaal asks him as to who he is.

After a series of arguments and questions, Angulimaal finds that this divine person still loves him after his horrible killings. He throws his sword and follows the advice of Lord Buddha to become a monk. He goes back to the people in the street of his royal palace, asking for forgiveness. But instead he is attacked by people throwing stones at him. He gets injured but continues to plead for forgiveness. At the right time, Princess Maya, who has become a monk, comes and rescues him from the mad crowd. She takes him to the monastery. The film ends with Angulimaal dressed as a monk, walking through the street for alms. Instead of stones, people now shower him with flowers and seeking his blessing.

There are 7 songs in ‘Angulimaal’ (1960) of which 5 songs have been covered on the Blog. All the songs were written by Bharat Vyas which was set to music by Anil Biswas. I was surprised to note that of the remaining two songs, the theme song and that too the most popular song of the film, ‘Buddham sharanam gachchaami’ is yet to be covered on the Blog. So, here is the theme song of about 10 minutes of duration which I am presenting with this article. The song is majorly rendered by Manna Dey except four lines which is rendered by Asha Bhosle lip syncing for Nimmi.

The song was not a cake walk for presentation as I found that there were many parts of the songs on the video sharing platform – some incomplete also. Fortunately, I found an audio clip of the song containing all the 6 parts of the song. Each stanza of the song has been rendered separately as background song. But video clips of a couple of parts of the song were not available. Also, it was necessary to know the sequence of each part of the song as it appears in the film. Instead of presenting the video clips in driblets, that too incomplete, I have made a new video clip by ripping off all the available parts of the song from the DVD of the film and uploaded the same. Unfortunately, Part-2 of the song is not available on the DVD of the film.

I give below the part-wise sequence of the song as appearing in the filmand the context thereof.

Part-1: As background song while credit titles of the film is displayed on the screen

Part-2: Missing in the DVD of the film. Probably this part was the continuation of Part-1. This part can be heard from the audio clip.

Part-3: The song is played in the background when Gurumata (Anita Guha) was about to commit suicide by jumping from a hill top into the river for tarnishing her name linking with Ahinsak (Bharat Bhushan). A monk’s sermons in the background stops her from committing suicide. She joins a monastery.

Part-4: Princess Maya (Nimmi) after failing to persuade Angulimaal to give up killings and join her, she is distressed that Angulimaal would continue to indulge in his killings. She decides to join monastery.

Part-5: Angulimaal (Bharat Bhushan) is about to kill his mother (Achala Sachdev). But the background song prevents him from using his sword as his hand muscle gets locked.

Part-6: Background song as Angulimaal, as a reformed man and now a monk, walks through the streets.

The lyrics in every line of the song has deep philosophical and inspirational thoughts. This song has as much of relevance today as was 60 years back when it was written by Bharat Vyas.

This is a devotional cum inspirational song which has a soothing effect on the mind.

“Gunaahon Ka Devta”(1967) was directed by Devi Sharma for Janta Chitra, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rajshree, Jeetendra, Mehmood, Leela Chitnis, Auna Irani, Randheer, Tuntun, Farida, Shahid, S K Prem, Sujata, Jeewan, Jankidas etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far.

Here is the sixth song from “Gunaahon Ka Devta”(1967) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Rafi and Manna Dey. Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is as a “diversion” song on Mehmood and another person (whom I am unable to identify) who gate crash on Jeewan’s wedding reception in Hindi filmy style without being subjected to any checks on their credentials. They are accompanied by two female dancers whom I cannot identify.

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors seen in the picturisation.

“Zindagi”(1964) was directed by Ramanand Sagar for Gemini , Madras. This “social” movie had Vyjyanti Mala, Rajendra Kumar, Raj Kumar, Mehmood, Jayant, Jeewan, Kanhaiyalal, Dhumal, Hiralal, Master Shahid, Prithviraj Kapoor, Helen, Leela Chitnis, Mumtaz Begam, Pushpawalli etc in it.

The movie had thirteen songs in it. Ten of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eleventh song from “Zindagi”(1964) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Manna Dey. It is picturised on Raj Kumar, lip syncing this song of hasrat (longing) in front of a portrait of Vyjyanti Mala.

Hasrat Jaipuri is (quite appropriately) the lyricist. 🙂 Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.


Song-Dil ko baandha zulf ki zanjeer se (Zindagi)(1964) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

dil ko bandha zulf ki zanzeer se
hosh loote husn ki taaseer se
hum kahan tak zapt karte dard e dil
haal e dil kehna pada tasveer se

baat dil ki zabaan pe rehti hai
lafz honthon pe thharthharaate hain
tum pe jab bhi nazar milaata hoon
mere armaan kaanp jaate hain
