This article is the 200th writeup of Raja in the blog.

Blog Day : 3569 Post No. : 14303

It’s been exactly five weeks since my last post here – but somehow it feels much longer. I’m reminded of that famous dialogue from Aandhi (1975) – “waise to ammavas pandrah din ki hoti hai, lekin is baar bahut lambi thi.” 🙂 These five weeks felt like five months.

One possible reason for this is that this happens to be my 200th post on this blog. So I’ve been on 199 for 5 weeks. Even Mudassar Nazar would be proud of my achievement. 🙂 Since this is IPL season, it’s also safe to say that franchisees wouldn’t exactly be falling over each other, outbidding each other to try to buy me at an IPL auction. 🙂

Not that I haven’t been nudged or reminded about this.

When I sent in my previous post, Atul told me it was my 199th and nudged me to get the 200th soon.

Peevisie’s Mom called me a while ago and reminded me of this.

One of Atul’s recent posts also nudged me (hint, hint!) to run that quick single.

And our Atulite whatsapp group also decided that it was high time.

And so I too decided today – yes, it is high time. This is unacceptable, even by Mudassar standards.

So here is the post – with due apology to everyone for this 5-week delay. And thanks to all who nudged me along the way. I needed it.

Actually, I had planned this 200th much earlier. Since I usually pick anniversaries for my posts, my first idea was Farooque Sheikh’s anniversary. That didn’t happen. Then, I’d planned for Jeetendra’s birthday. On both occasions I’d finalized the song – but, for a variety of reasons that I will not get into right now, I never got around to writing the post. No excuses though – if Atul can write up and post songs every single day, I just cannot have an excuse for taking five weeks for one post. 🙂

I see that these songs aren’t posted yet, so I can still write them up – no need for a specific occasion. In fact, the Jeetu song would be quite suitable for this post too – but I’m going with this particular one because it happens to have Moushumi Chatterjee in it too – and it is Moushumi’s birthday today. The Jeetu song can wait.

The song I’ve picked for today is an iconic song for a particular occasion – the baaraat in a wedding.

When I was very young, the song “meri pyari beheniya banegi dulhaniya” became very popular. Thanks to my name, I used to be constantly teased “bhaiya raja bajaayega baaja”.

This was in addition to another “baaraat” song for which I used to be teased – the famous “raja ki aayegi baaraat” from Aah (1953).

These were both regulars at any baaraat.

And then there was “ghodi pe hoke savaar”, today’s song.

It also became a very popular song for baaraat occasions – especially if the bridegroom was on a horse. The words suit the occasion perfectly, so it was only natural this song would play on the occasion.

“Ghodi pe hoke savaar” was not only popular then – I suspect, it’s still popular. Which is why I was very surprised to discover that it had not yet been posted on this blog. I know Atul has a category along the lines of “how come this song is not yet posted yet”. This song is the mother of all songs in that category, considering it’s almost ten years for this blog now. 🙂

In fact, this film “Ghulam Begum Baadshah” (1973) has not made an entry yet on the blog. So this is a debut for this film here. There’s a 1956 film by the same name which has songs here but, for this film, this is the first.

For me, another category that this song slips into – but is not a recognized category here – is “this song is in THIS film?”.

I’d heard this song umpteen times in my life – but never really got to know the name of the film it was from.

And then, a few years ago, I saw a film “Ghulam Begum Baadshah” (1973) prompted to me on youtube. It piqued my interest – I’d never heard of this film before, it was a 1970s film, it had Moushumi in it (I quite like Moushumi) – so I decided to give it a go.

When the prelude to the song started, I thought it sounded very familiar. And then when the song started, I was totally in this “ye gaana IS film ka hai?” mode. It was a very pleasant surprise.

It wasn’t the only one.

I remember that even the film turned out to be a pleasant surprise. Ok, I had zero expectations from it (that’s usually how I avoid disappointment :-)), but even so, it held my interest to the very end.

I remember there were scenes of patriarchy that annoyed me but what I liked most about the film was Moushumi and her role. From what I remember of her role, it had a lot of spunk.

As we know, in many movies, especially in earlier eras, the women are shown as weaker than the men. They need to be protected, they are subservient, they often don’t even have a mind of their own. They’re subdued, they’re shy. They’re not often shown as smart, thinking women.

In this film, from what I remember of it (I don’t remember the details well), Moushumi is shown as anything but weak. She gives as good as she gets, refusing to cower down to bullying. And when she is in a difficult situation, she finds her own way to get out of it, instead of depending on the male characters to solve her problems for her.

This is what I liked most about the film. And there’s a nice twist at the end too.

The film has Kumud Chugani too – always nice to see her in a film as well.

So if you haven’t watched this film – and want to watch a 1970s film – you could give it a shot. But don’t shoot me if you don’t like it – apni apni pasand. And I don’t claim to have high standards. 🙂

The song itself is by Rafisaab – and considering it’s an early 70s song, it was during his “lean” period. But even during this period, he had popular songs like this one – and “teri galiyon mein na rakhenge kadam” and “aaj mausam bada be-imaan hai”.

I think he does full justice to the song – singing it with gusto, as you’d expect on the occasion of a baaraat. The way midway in the song he pronounces “ghodi” is deliberately upbeat.

The lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan, music by Kalyanji-Anandji.

I hope you enjoy listening to this song as much as I do.

Once again, a very happy birthday to Moushumi Chatterjee. I think I’ve written a full post on her earlier – she was one of my favourite heroines in the 70s.

Whew! Got that 200th out of the way. Relief! 🙂 And thanks for tolerating me for these 200 posts.

“Anaadi”(1975) was directed by Asit Sen for I S Films, Bombay. The “social” movie had Shashi Kapoor, Sharmila Tagore, Mausami Chatterji, Kabir Bedi, Mehmood (friendly appearance), Utpal Dutt, Kader Khan, Dina Pathak, Shamim, Devkishan Ahuja, HRaindranath Chattopadhyay, Anita Guha, Mushtaq Merchant, Birbal, Asit Sen etc in it, with specuial appearances by Anil Dhawan, Poornima, Krishnkant and Paintal.

Unlike its namesake of 1959, which had Raj Kapoor in it, his kid brother Shashi Kapoor starred movie “Anaadi”(1975) has ended up becoming an obscure movie, despite being a movie of recent vintage by the standards of this blog.

“Anaadi”(1975) had five songs in it and they too have been forgotten. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised as a boat song on Shashi Kapoor and Mausami Chatterji. We find Kabir Bedi and Utpal Dutt spying them with binoculars.

I wonder what the movie was all about. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie.

With this song, “Anaadi”(1975) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Tere baghair jaane jaana (Anaadi)(1975) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

sabse buri sharaab hai

My movie watching spree was at its peak during the year 1975 – 76. Mind you, in 1976 I had to appear for my school leaving certificate (the SSC board exam). But being a street smart teen with a knack for remembering most of the things that I came across, I always used to score good marks in my exams. Not that I stood in the top three in my class, but I was not in the bottom three as well. Hope you get my drift.

During the several morning shows I saw, missing my classes, I distinctly remember seeing Mazaaq because it was the movie which I saw on the penultimate day before the school closed for my half yearly exams. It was not a great movie that one can remember (as you can see from the synopsis below), but I had to see it as it was the new release on that day (Friday) and watching movies was my staple diet, so any movie would do.

It was only in my twenties that I heard this sweet song and was floored by it. This song has Asha Bhonsle and Pancham at one of their best. I hope many of you remember this song and those who haven’t can marvel at this beautiful melody.

The movie synopsis:

The movie story deals with Vinod who is in search for job. One day he rescues Dr. Aruna (Irani) from a fire, and when she recovers, he steals a certificate in the name of Heeralal Mehta, certifying that the person is medically mentally challenged. He changes the name on the certificate, goes around acting mad, getting food & clothing for free. He also involves his down and out friend, Raja (Mehmood) in this scheme.

The Police are informed about Vinod, and in order to escape he re-locates to Bangalore. Once there he applies and gets a job as a Manager with the Narang family business, meets with Moushumi and both fall in love with each other. One day Moushumi’s dad comes across the certificate, and also a newspaper notice about Vinod’s escapade and his mental condition. He fires Vinod and asks him never to meet Moushumi again.

Vinod returns to Bombay, gets another certificate from Dr. Irani, this time certifying that he is sane, and he past actions were just a joke, and returns to Bangalore – only to find that Moushumi is about to married to another man her dad has chosen for her. The rest of the movie is about what happens next?

The movie stars Vinod Mehra, Moushami Chatterji, Aruna Irani, Iftekhar, Asrani, Mukri, Keshto Mukherjee, Agha, Bhagwan, Shobha Khote, Viju Khote, Paintal, etc. It is directed by Kumar for producers Jayantha Mukherjee, Ritesh Mukherjee (Moushami’s husband in real life). The music is composed by Rahul Dev Burman and the songs are penned by Yogesh Gaud.

“Takra Gaye Do Baadal Ambar Pe” by Asha Bhonsle with monologues in the interludes by Vinod Mehra, composed by R D Burman and penned by Yogesh Gaud from “Mazaaq 1975”.


Song-Takra gaye do baadal ambar pe (Mazaaq)(1975) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-R D Burman
Vinod Mehra

Lyrics

Takraa gaye do
Baadal ambar pe ae
Takraa gaye do o
Baadal ambar pe ae
Toh barasne lagi
Boondein bikhar ke ae
Takraa gaye do o
Baadal ambar pe ae ae
Toh barasne lagi
Boondein bikhar ke ae
Takraa gaye do o

Maushami,
Kitna pyaaraa naam hai
Is naam ka saath toh
Har mausam se hai
Chaahe woh sardi ka ho
ya garmi ka
Patjhad ka ho
ya saawan ka

Ahh Chhodo
Jaao
Bade woh ho tum m
Naam mera
Jod diya
Mausam se sanam m
Mausam
Phir bhi
Mausam hai sanam m
Naam mera
Joda na bataa
Khud se kyun balam
Mujhse milaao yeh nain to
Aise na jalaao mere mann ko o o o
Takraa gaye do o
Baadal ambar pe ae
Toh barasne lagi
Boondein bikhar ke ae ae
Takraa gaye do

Yeh saawan ka mausam to khoobsoorat hai hi
Lekin tumhaari is khubsoorat umar ne
Ise aur bhi khubsoorat bana diya hai

Jaane
Aayi
Kaisi yeh umar
Ban ke kali
Khilne lagi
Sooni raah par r
Tan mein
Mann mein
Uthhi yeh lehar r
Tujhse sajan
Takraaye mann
jaaoon main bikhar
Aag lage re saawan ko o
Chhoo gaya mere daaman ko o o
Takraa gaye do o
Baadal ambar pe ae
Toh barasne lagi
Boondein bikhar ke ae
Takraa gaye do o

Today (5 august 2015)is the birthday of Kajol.

And I find myself writing a post on this blog for this occasion. 🙂

Of all the songs I’ve written about here, this has got to be the most recent. Most of the songs I post are from the 70s or earlier, with just the odd 1980s song.

And this one is of the 1990s.

But I want to post this for three reasons.

As we all know, there are thousands of songs out there and they can all be classified in many different ways. Here on the blog, Atul himself has categorized songs into several categories, depending on mood (sad/happy), or content (birthday/Diwali), or style (qawwali/disco) or even musical instrument (guitar/harmonium). And many other ways.

Apart from all these, there is one category that we don’t have but I think all of us will agree could be a fun category. That is “songs that if I hadn’t heard in my childhood or seen the movie, I don’t think I would ever have heard in my life”. 🙂
