Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 22
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I present here a repeat song that is quite different from the string of songs in this series so far. I shall begin by introducing the original song.

The original song is from the 1953 film – ‘Hamdard’. The song has been written by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and the music composition is by Anil Biswas. The original song is in the voice of Manna Dey, and it is already posted on the blog a good eight years ago. That post can be viewed at “Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya”.

The repeat song, this time appearing in the film ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ from 1960. The song is the same, but for the latter film, it has been re-recorded. The music director of the latter film is Ravi. The second recording is different, both with regards to the composition, as well as the singing voice. The latter song has been recorded in the voice of Rafi Sb, in a tune that is quite different from the original.

In the latter film, only the mukhda of the song is present. The full song is not presented. It would be interesting to know whether the latter version of the song was recorded as a complete song, or only the lines that are actually present in the film.

So the repeat song has been re-recorded, using a different tune, and in a different voice. And it is only used partially. There surely are other instances in Hindi films, where snippets of songs from earlier films have been used partially. This case is interesting, in that it has been formally re-recorded, different voice, different tune. As far as I can check, it appears that this is the only instance of its kind, in the category of repeat songs.

Here is another very interesting anecdote about this song. There is actually another instance in Hindi films, where these lines appear, albeit equally briefly. The film is ‘Teesri Manzil’ from 1966. The scenario is played out as follows.

The location is again the restaurant of the hotel. Shammi Kapoor, or Rocky, (also Anil) has just finished singing the song – “Tumne Mujhe Dekha Ho Kar Meharbaan”. He is on the seventh heaven, considering that Asha Parekh, or Sunita has come to his performance of this song. Little does he know that the letter that was supposed to reach her the previous evening has just been delivered to her in the restaurant. Of course, knowing the truth, Sunita is livid at the deception played by Anil. And Anil, on the seventh heaven, has completed the song and launches into a monologue, telling the audience, how lucky he is having found love. He reaches the table where Sunita is sitting, and she is in tears. Continuing the monologue, Anil reaches out for her hand, and starts to speak these lines –

Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya
Ke Chirag Raah Mein Jal Gaye. . .

The unexpected next instant is a shock, as Sunita pulls back her hand and lands a resounding slap on Anil’s cheek.

So a very interesting set of appearances these lines make – from 1953 to 1960 to 1966.

Remembering Rafi Sb today, on his 40th remembrance day.

This snippet also brings back memories of another great performer – Kumkum, who passed away on 28th July, three days ago. In the closing minutes of this film, she makes a decision and leaves her home, to follow the person she loves, no matter that person is a dishonest conman.

Song – Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya  (Tu Nahin Aur Sahi) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Ravi
[Note: The music director for the original tune in ‘Hamdard’ is Anil Biswas.]

Lyrics

tera haath haath mein aa gaya
ke chiraag raah mein jal gaye
mujhe sehal ho gayin manzilen
wo hawa ke rulh bhi badal gaye

tera haath haath mein aa gaya

तेरा हाथ हाथ में आ गया
के चिराग़ राह में जल गए
मुझे सेहल हो गईं मंज़िलें
वो हवा के रुख भी बादल गए

तेरा हाथ हाथ में आ गया

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 21
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, yes, this one too.

And I am very sure most of us would not have heard, or even heard of, the third stanza in this song. Ah yes, that is the wonderful bonus we have from the repeat use of this song. I was not even aware of the existence of a third stanza of this song, before my dear friend Ahsaan Bhai (of Hapur) introduced me to this repeat song in the 1978 film ‘Nasbandi’. That was a few months ago. In wayward manner, i.e. without any proper identification etc., this song is available on you tube. And unless one is aware of what one is looking for, one is bound to miss it.

And the third stanza – I wonder where and how IS Johar was able to lay his hands on the extended version of this song. Is the film availabl somewhere? Food, and quite wholesome food at that, for thought. The repeat use is the original recording in the voice of Rafi Sb. And as such, it is not listed in the Geet Kosh, for the film ‘Nasbandi’.

Definitely, the best of the fast paced super foot tappers sung by Rafi Sb. Listening to this, one can but not cease being amazed in wonder at the spectrum of the range that Rafi Sb has rendered over the near four and a half decades of his career as a playback singer in Indian cinema.

The original song, from the film ‘Mr X’ from 1957. The film is sadly not available, not traceable at present. And so one cannot write about the picturization. However, one thing that Ahsaan Bhai has confirmed with certainty that this song is performed on screen by Johnny Walker, in the original.

The repeat song in the film ‘Nasbandi’ is presented, in original, as a background song. Now, ‘Nasbandi’ is  Johar Films production. And knowing the penchant IS Johar has for spoofing and presenting a near gobbledygook farce of the normal situations, one must see this clip with a barrelful of salt, keeping on the side, all the sensible understanding of the real world, or even the reel world. The fun in his films is very much in-your-face farce.

IS Johar was an acknowledged intellectual and man of letters. Only that his capabilities in this arena got directed towards comedy and fun. One can sense that he is making a film for fun, and in that process he is making fun of a lot of established ideas, and even well known people. He went on to produce many films of this calibre.

Another thing that I want to highlight is his penchant for the motor bike. In practically all his films that I have seen, there is one or more scene of motorbike riding, and in some cases, real dare-devilry motorbike riding, be it ‘Johar in Kashmir’ (1966), ‘Johar and Mehmood in Goa’ (1965), or ‘Johar and Mehmood in Hong Kong’ (1971). In this film too, the same gimmickry appears. This song is all about extreme motorbike riding, with display of driving skills underwater, driving on rail tracks, ascending and descending stair cases, besides the other nominal tricks of motorbike riding. One enjoys the song of course. But one also realizes – it is in the film just for the heck of it. 🙂

Ah but, this post is not about IS Johar and his films. It is the recall of this iconic song sung by Rafi Sb, and as mentioned above, the wondrous discovery of a third stanza of this song.

40 years ago, this divine virtuous voice, departed from this world of the mundane. And the world became lesser so with his departure. The artist that he was, and the humane person that was him, only rarely one finds these two attributes of eminence so pleasantly enmeshed together.

Just like water – it will take shape of whatever container one pours into. And it will take up the color of whatever it is mixed with. That is the artist in Rafi Sb. His voice in the background, almost always sounded as the voice of the actor in front. That is what water does – accepts everything, becomes everything.

Such is the same – as with Rafi Sb.

Amen.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 43
———————————————————————————–

Ten years back on this day 22nd July 2010 five songs were posted on the blog as per following.

Song

 Movie title-Year

 Remarks

 Chaahaa thaa banoon pyaar ki raahon ka devata  Gunhaahon Kaa Devtaa-1967  3 of 7 songs posted
 Dil milaa ke milo paas aake milo  Thakur Jarnail Singh-1966  3 of 6 songs posted

 Bheegi chaandni chhaayi bekhudi  Suhaagan-1964  All songs covered
 Ik baat bataa de jogi  Taj-1956  All songs covered

So, today, we have two movies eligible for posting a song under ‘Blog Ten-Year Challenge’ viz. ‘Gunaahon Ka Devta’ (1967) and ‘Thakur Jarnail Singh’ (1966). In this post, I am presenting a song from ‘Gunaahon Ka Devta’ wherein Prakash ji had sent the lyrics of this multiple versions song.

When I saw the mail and the song title, I was surprised to note that this song has not been posted yet on the blog. But when I checked the other remaining song from this movie, I was more surprised to note that there is one more song which I like very much because of the actor performing on it 😊 but this song too is yet to be posted on the blog. Well, I had watched this movie during my stay at Parli-Vaijnath from 1985-1988. And this movie did bring back memories of my stay there and the ‘peak movie watching period’ for me there, when I used to watch maximum movies of yesteryear coming to theatres. I remember I liked this movie and its songs too.

The film is produced and directed by Devi Sharma for ‘Janta Chitra’. It has Rajshri, Jeetendra, Mehmood, Leela Chitnis, Aruna Irani, Randhir, Tun Tun, Farida, Shahid, Rekha, SK Prem, Sujata, Jankidas and Jeevan. The story of this movie is also written by Devi Sharma, and its screenplay was written by Ravi Kapoor. Dialogues of this movie were written by Sarshar Sailani. Editing of this movie was done by Dharamvir. The movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.05.1967.

This movie has seven songs including one multiple version song. Lyrics were written by Hasrat Jaipuri and Shailendra (one song – the title song only). Music of this movie was composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Mukesh, Manna Dey and Sharda had given their voices to for the songs in this movie.

So far, the following songs from ‘Gunaahon Ka Devta’ have been posted on the blog; 

Song

Chaahaa thaa banoon pyaar ki raahon ka devata  22.07.2010
 Raam kare kahin nainaa naa uljhen  30.07.2010
 Teer aankhon ke jigar ke paar kar do yaar tum  13.07.2012

Today’s song is the multiple version song where the male version is sung by Mohd Rafi and the female version has the voice of Sharda. Jeetendra is lip syncing in the voice of Rafi Saab in the male version whereas in the female version Rajshri is lip syncing in the voice of Sharda. Both of them are seen in the picturization of this song where we could see the lovers ‘complaining’ about each other for ‘trapping in love’ and simultaneously also reminding that one will not be able to forgot them easily.

As mentioned above lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Let us now enjoy this lovely song in both versions …

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

haaye

kyaa iraada hai

hum ko to barbaad kiya hai

bhool na jaana aaj ke din ko
ek din hum ko yaad karoge
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai

tirchhi nazar ke teer chalaao
naaz-o-adaa ki bijlee giraao
tirchhi nazar ke teer chalaao
naaz-o-adaa ki bijlee giraao
uff na karenge
hum bhi to dekhein
kitne sitam iijaad karoge
kis ki jaan logi
kya iraada hai
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai
aur kise barbaad karoge
bhool na jaana aaj ke din ko
ek din hamko yaad karoge
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai

tum chaaho to jaan bhi le lo
kaafir ho imaan bhi le lo
tum chaaho to jaan bhi le lo
kaafir ho imaan bhi le lo
dil waalon se paala pada hai ae
tum bhi bhala kya yaad karoge
ha haa
kis ki jaan logi
kya iraada hai
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai
aur kise barbaad karoge
bhool na jaana aaj ke din ko
ek din hamko yaad karoge
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai

hum bhi tumhein bechain karenge
pyaar mein aisa rang bharenge ae
hum bhi tumhein bechain karenge
pyaar mein aisa rang bharenge
neend na hogi in aankhon mein
tadpoge fariyaad karoge ae
ha ha
kis ki jaan logi
kya iraada hai
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai
aur kise barbaad karoge
bhool na jaana aaj ke din ko
ek din hamko yaad karoge
hum ko to barbaad kiya hai

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 42
——————————————————————————

From the three movies eligible for the ‘blog ten-year’ challenge today, we have already represented one today in the morning and taking this another one to add to the celebrations for today. This song is from the 1964 movie ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ and it is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. This song is picturised on Mehmood and Shubha Khote, where the two lovers are singing and enjoying in their ‘famous’ style 😊

As mentioned in the earlier post total four songs were represented on the blog on 19.07.2010 including a song from this movie ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ (1964).

Two of the above listed films, i.e. ‘Amar Jyoti’ (1936) and ‘Phoolon Ki Sejh’ had made their debut on the blog that day.

‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ has total nine songs (including one three-part song) which are all written by Hasrat Jaipuri. Music for this movie is composed by Aadi Narayan Rao. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi, Mukesh and Manna Dey had given their voices to the songs in this movie. So far, the following songs from ‘Phoolon Ki Sej’ have been posted on the blog;

Seven songs of this film have already been covered on the blog, including the multiple version song ‘Taaron Ki Aankhon Ka Taara Tu’. So now, song are now left to be covered. One song being posted today will leave this movie only one short of ‘Yippeeee Land’ 😊

When I checked the earlier song posts of this movie, I noted that one song from this movie Aa Bhi Ja Rasiya was covered by our respected late Bharatbhai under his ‘Raag Maalikaa’ series (this was song number 12 in that series).

On this day today when our blog is celebrating 12th birth anniversary I take this opportunity to remember and pay our tributes to Bharatbhai who is not with us this year to celebrate this occasion. We all miss him today.

But I am sure wherever he is, he is enjoying this ‘musical journey’ and showering his blessings to this blog and on all ‘Atulites’ today.

Lyrics for the today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song …

के हम भी दीवाने
तुम्हारे परवाने

प्यार को
मधुर मधुर इक़रार को
अरे ये दुनिया क्या जाने
के हम तो परवाने
बड़े ही मस्ताने
तुम्हारे दीवाने

Hullo Atuldom

Today I did a tiny research with the resources available at my disposal. I have inferred that the music duo Kalyanji Anandji have scored music for most of the movies where Feroz Khan was in the lead; till the time of Kalyanji’s passing in 2000. In fact, I found two Feroz Khan starring movies, on our blog, that are on the threshold of being yippeee’d. One has two songs left, but the album of that movie shows that Kalyanji-Anandji have given music for three sequences where there is no song. I am sure one music piece has Helen burning the dance floor, that is as brilliant as is the theme music for that movie. So for today we leave that movie alone and concentrate on the one that is one short of yippeee-hood.

That film is ‘Shankar Shambhu’ (1976). The four out of possible five songs from that move were posted thus:-

No. Song Title Post No. Post Date
1 Hum Lootne Aaye Hain Hum Loot Ke Jaayenge 11964 1-Apr-16
2 Aa Pahunchi Hai Is Mele Mein Saddi Aaj Sawaari 12492 25-Oct-16
3 Mera Dil Chura Kar Na Aankhen Churaa 15075 17-Jun-19
4 Gar Nibhaane Ki Himmat Na Thhi Aap Mein 15565 27-Apr-20

The final song of the movie is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Mohammad Rafi. It has Feroz Khan romancing Sulakshana Pandit in various locations. If my memory is right the couple have just got wet because they jump out of the boat on which they were having a joy ride in a lake to escape from constables led by Bhagwan Dada.

I don’t know what is there left to write about the music duo that the readers of this blog don’t know. So without much ado let us get to the song and thank Kalyanji Virji Shah (who would have been 92 today) and his brother Anandji Virji Shah for the treasure trove of songs that they have left for us to relish. And on the blog we have 583 from a possible 1435 songs i.e. not even halfway done.

With this post now, ‘Shankar Shambhu’ has all its songs on the blog.

Asha Bhosle + Mohammed Rafi

Lyrics 

bheege huye jalwon par 
aise na nazar daalo
bheege huye jalwon par 
aise na nazar daalo
bheege huye jalwon par 
aise na nazar daalo
dil chaahe idhar rakho

bheege hue jalwon par

in garam nigaahon se 
jazbaat bhadakte hain
in garam nigaahon se 
jazbaat bhadakte hain
ehsaas sulagta hai 
armaan dhadkate hai
ruk jaao 
ruk jaao
ruk jaao abhi dil par
itna na asar dalo
bheege huye jalwon par 
aise na nazar daalo
bheege huye jalwon par

soyi hui dhadkan ko 
khud tumne jagaaya hai
soyi hui dhadkan ko 
khud tumne jagaaya hai
saanso se pukaara hai 
nazaron se bulaaya hai
mat apni khataon ko
mat apni khataon ko 
ab aur ke sar daalo
oooo
bheege huye jalwon par 
aise na nazar daalo
bheege huye jalwon par

kab hamne kaha tumse 
hum tum pe nahin marte
kab hamne kaha tumse 
hum tum pe nahin marte
tum kuch bhi kaho tum par 
ilzam nahi dharte
bereham ho 
bereham ho
bereham ho qaatil ho 
ye qatl bhi kar daalo
hmmm mm hmm
hmmm mm hmm
dil chaahe idhar rakho 
par aankh udhar daalo

During the course of my exercise to pick up Hindi songs in Bangla films, I have gone through many Bangla films with their basic details such as the director, story writer, star cast, lyricist, music director, playback singers etc. In the list of lyricists in any Bangla film, if I find the name of the lyricist from Hindi films, I am almost certain that there would be at least one Hindi song in that Bangla film. In some cases, I found that though the name of the Hindi film lyricist was not mentioned, still one or two Hindi songs were found in such Bangla films.

During one of such exercise, I got to know of a Bangla film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962). The film was directed by Dilip Bose. Although, I could not find the name of Hindi lyricist for the film, the names of playback singers like Manna Dey, Mukesh, and Asha Bhosle gave me a glimmer of hope that there could be at least one Hindi song in the film. The music director for the Bangla film was Ved Pal. But I scored a blank on this count. However, during the searching the songs on the internet, I came across not one but three Hindi songs under the film’s title ‘Sorry Madam’ (Unreleased). Some further searches on the internet revealed a story behind this unreleased film which I was not aware of it. The film was to be a remake of Bangla film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962) which was a box office success. Hindi remake with the same title was to be produced and directed by Dilip Bose who had also directed its Bangla version. But the film remained unfinished because the director, Dilip Bose went into deep depression after a personal tragedy.

Dilip Bose started his filmy career as actor in Bangla films ‘Kashinath’ (1943) and ‘Bichar’ (1943). I could not get any lead as to what he did during 1943-1960. In 1960, he directed his first Bangla film ‘Dui Bechaara’ (1960). The next Bangla film which he directed was ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962) with Biswajeet and Sandhya Roy in lead roles. ‘Chaandi Ki Deewar’ (1964) was his first directorial venture in Hindi film. During his filmy career, he directed 5 Bangla films, 6 Hindi films and 10 Bhojpuri films. He also acted in about a dozen Bangla films which included Satyajit Ray’s ‘Charulata’ (1964). He also did some smaller roles in a few Bhojpuri films besides story and screen-play writing.

In 1979, after directing Hindi films like ‘Chaandi Ki Deewar’ (1964), ‘Sansaar’ (1971), ‘Thokar’ (1974), ‘Badnaam’ (1975) and ‘Sikka’ (1976), he decided to produce and direct the Hindi remake of his Bangla film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1962) with Raj Kiran and Kajal Kiran in the lead roles. Six songs, all rendered by Mohammed Rafi (some with Asha Bhosle) were recorded in December 1979 under the music direction of Chitragupt. However, Dilip Bose was struck with a personal tragedy when he suddenly lost his wife. Being a sentimental person, Dilip Bose was so much devastated by this tragedy that he went into deep depression for a long time and the film remained unfinished. After recovering from the depression, Dilip Bose concentrated mainly on directing Bhojpuri films. Dilip Bose died in 2002.

Even though 6 songs of the unfinished film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1979) were recorded in December 1979, no gramophone records or CDs were issued. So, they remained unavailable to the public. It was only after the death of the music director, Chitragupt in January 1991 that the tape containing the songs were discovered.  It was decided to release the song in an album. However, by that time, Hindi film music scene had changed and composition style of these six songs sounded old to the music companies who were not interested in releasing the songs. It was only after the success of ‘Veer Zara’ (2004) in which the old-style song composition of Madan Mohan became a hit that a fresh effort was made to release the songs. A music publishing company agreed to release the songs. The tape of the songs were sent to Belgium to digitally restore them to the highest sound quality. Thus,  the songs which were recorded in December 1979 had to wait for 30 years to get them released in an album ‘Teri Adaa’ in 2009.

I am presenting one of the six songs, “Dekho Ji Waado Karo Ke Door Kabhi Tum Na Rahoge” from the unfinished film ‘Sorry Madam’ (1979). The song is written by Kaafil Aazar which is set to music by Chitragupt.

[Acknowledgements:  Some of the information about the background history of the film with 6 unreleased songs are sourced from silkrd.files.wordpress.com and about Dilip Bose, from the book, ‘Cinema Bhojpuri’ by Avijit Ghosh.]

4277 Post No. : 15514 Movie Count :

Although not listed in the anniversaries list on our blog, a message yesterday from Mahesh ji reminded that it was the remembrance day of the music director Robin Chatterji. Some more discussion followed in which it was mentioned that Rafi Sb had never sung under the  baton of this music director. Something tickled in the memory and I searched through the Geet Kosh listings and my collection, coming up with this wonderful solo of Rafi Sb, that he has sung for Robin Chatterjee, in a Bhojpuri film.

Remembering Robin Chatterjee on the anniversary of his passing away (2nd April, 1976).

As is the fate of many such lesser known and lesser appreciated artists, there is very little information available about him. His date of birth is recorded as 8th January, 1914. No details about his family or early years is available. One name is available – his first teacher of classical music was Keshab Ganesh Dhekan. Robin started his career with the venerable New Theatres, in their music department. He sang in the chorus line for NT films like ‘Adhikar’ (1938).

Some records indicate that worked as an assistant to music director Anupam Ghatak. He and Anupam had learnt music from the same teacher (KH Dhekan). Apparently he assisted Anupam Ghatak with some of his films during 1939-40.

Information about his earliest films as an independent music director is not very specific. Based on Geet Kosh listings, the first Hindi film where we see his name appear as a music director is ‘Raaj Lakshmi’ (1945). Listings show that he shared the music direction responsibility for this film with Dhiren Mitra. This film was produced under the banner of MP Productions, Calcutta (now Kolkata). This film has the distinction of being the debut film for Talat Mehmood, as a singer in Hindi films. Prior to this, he had sung under the pseudonym of Tapan Kumar, all recordings being for Bangla films or for non-film Hindi and Bangla songs. The debut solo songs for him in this film are “Jaago Musaafir Jaago, Kholo Mann Ka Dwaar” and “Tu Sun Le Matwaale”.

Browsing through the Geet Kosh, we find the following films listed with his name as the music director –

‘Raj Laxmi’ (1945) (w Dhiren Mitra)
‘Tum Aur Main’ (1947)
‘Wo Dono’ (1947)
‘Sabyasachi’ (1948)
‘Ratnadeep’ (1952)
‘Firdaus’ (1953) (w Roshan)
‘Pehli Shaadi’ (1953)
‘Afreeka’ (1954)
‘Majboori’ (1954)
‘Shobhaa’ (1954)
‘Dhaake Ki Malmal’ (1956) (w OP Nayyar)
‘Saiyan Se Bhaile Milanva’ (1964)
‘Chimni Ka Dhuaan’ (1973)

and possiblye ‘Miss Toofaan Mail’ (1958), for which the name of the music director is given simply as Robin.

Of these, the credits for ‘Raj Lakshmi’ are shared with Dhiren Mitra, for ‘Firdaus’ are shared with Roshan and for ‘Dhaake Ki Malmal’ are shared with OP Nayyar. The film ‘Saiyan Se Bhaile Milanva’ is a Bhojpuri film. And the film ‘Chimni Ka Dhuaan’ was probably completed sometimes in the first half of 1960s, but its release was delayed by many years, finally releasing in 1973.

The above list of films shows a career with sizeable gaps. However, there is other information that says he was also active, rather very active in the Bangla film industry, as well as in the non-film and folk song genres. There are more details available about his films in Bangla. He has scored music for many films starring Suchitra Sen, for whom he has preferentially used the voice of Sandhya Mukherjee.

One additional bit of information from my own memory. I do remember seeing the name Robin Chatterjee as the sound recordist in the credits of some films. I am not sure that such credits are referring to the same person – possibly so.

My personal experience, and also preference, is that to appreciate the music and songs of lesser known and lesser discussed artists is to pull together as many songs of such an artist, as possible, and then listen to them at a stretch, within one, two, three sittings. In my humble opinion, this way one gets a much better feel for both the quality and the quantity of the body of work for the artist. This in turn provides a much better and a wider appreciation of his or her work. In my effort to pull together information and body of work about such artists, I find that I have not yet come across a single instance where I may have failed to appreciate the quality of work created by the artist. For that reason, I humbly state that I never will dismiss an artist only because he or she is lesser known and his/her body of work is obscure and not easily accessible. The same has been my experience with the songs tuned and composed by Robin Chatterjee. We already have 24 songs on our blog, for which he is the music director – please check out in case interested.

About this film, there are no details available, other than the name of the production banner – Messers Technicians Enterprise. No listings of actors is available either. Only the name of the music director, the singers and a list of 4 songs is available.

About this film – it is produced under the banner of Messers Technicians Enterprise, and is directed by PL Santoshi. The name should  be very familiar – PL Santoshi has been active in Hindi films as a lyricist, story/screenplay writer, dialogue writer and director, since the mid 1930s, all the way to his passing away in 1978. The star cast is listed as Sujit Kumar, Saeeda Khan, Sabita Chatterjee, Tarun Kumar, Jahar Rai etc. It is a story about the sacrifices the wife (Saeeda Khan) makes to care for and nurse her husband (Sujit Kumar), who is suffering from the memory loss.

The Geet Kosh lists 4 songs for this film. There are two solos by Suman Kalyanpur, one solo by Rafi Sb (today’s presentation), and one duet of Rafi Sb and Sandhya Mukherjee. Although the name of the lyricist is not specifically mentioned in any source, it is very likely that PL Santoshi has most likely written some or all songs of this film. However, it needs to be confirmed.
[Ed Note: PL Santoshi has directed 20+ films during his career, and he has written some or all songs for 15 of them.]

Regardless, it is a naughty, wonderfully playful song of appreciation – appreciation of the beauty of a young belle. Listen and enjoy.

Thanks to Sadanand ji for providing the information about the film, from the book by Avijit Ghosh.]

[Ed Note: I believe that the lyrics in the Bhojpuri dialect are not difficult to follow. As the lines are perused, there may be a little transliteration required for one line. In case there is a comment/request, the transliteration of the full lyrics can be provided. The difficult line maybe, “peear peear galba pa chhitke lallaiya” or “पीयर पीयर गलबा पे छिटके लल्लइया”. In simpler Hindi, the line says “pyaare pyaare peele peele gaalon pe laali chhitki hai” or “प्यारे प्यारे पीले पीले गालों पे लाली छिटकी है”. 🙂 ]
[Ed Note: Thanks to dear AK ji for making the correction in the above transliterated line of lyrics.]

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 18
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

So this suggestion and reminder from Anekant ji, dropped into my mail box yesterday. And I take this opportunity to present this repeat song that is so appropriate for the continuing celebrations of Navratri.

The original song – “Tu Ne Mujhe Bulaaya Sheraanwaaliye“, is from the film ‘Aasha’ (1980) and on screen it is performed by Jeetendra and others. Reena Roy is present in the picturization. Fast forward eight years to 1988 and the song has been repeated in the film ‘Do Waqt Ki Roti’ (1988), as is. Meaning, it is not a re-recording. The song has been replayed as original. The only difference is that a full antaraa is deleted. The original song has two antaraas, and this reuse song has only one.

‘Do Waqt Ki Roti’ is produced by MP Aggarwal and is directed by Satpaal. The primary cast of actors is listed as Feroz Khan, Sanjeev Kumar, Reena Roy, Sulakshana Pandit, Nirupa Roy, Amjad Khan, Shakti Kapoor, Satyendra Kappu, Ranjeet, and Jagdeep. The film has five songs, other that this reuse song.

The interesting similarity that the music directors of these two films are the same. So maybe that is why the reuse may not have been a problem. However, as usual, this reuse song is not listed in the list of songs of this film.

Today is the sixth day of Navratri celebrations. The incarnation of the Goddess Mother that is worshipped today is Maa Kaalratri or Maa Mahakaali. I would like to discuss this appearance of the Mother in a little more detail. It is quite possible that the readers may be quite familiar with this description.

The description is as per the Devi Bhagwat. As it their wont – the Devatas have been defeated by two powerful aruras (demons) – Shumbh and Nishumbh, and had lost the occupation of the Kingdom of Heavens. The commander of the asura armies was another demon named Raktbeej. Raktbeej had a boon that he had received from Brahma ji. As is usual the asuras, after long periods of penance and austerities, would always end up asking for the blessing of longevity – that they could never be destroyed. This boon has been asked for by the asuras in many different forms. Raktbeej asked for this boon in the form that in case he is in a battle, and he is wounded, then when his blood touches the ground in form of drops, every drop will immediately form a replica of the Raktbeej himself. So even if he is wounded, just by the result of this blessing, an army of Rakbeej clones will be created. By this way, Raktbeej may never be vanquished, and he would only get stronger with additional forces of clones of himself to support him.

The Devatas were in despair, and they prayed to the Mother Goddess. She appeared and asked them what were they seeking from Her. They explained the predicament in their battle against Shumbh and Nishumbh – that they, the Devatas will never be able to defeat the asuras, as long as their commander Raktbeej is leading them. The Mother Goddess assured them of help, and sent them away to wage another war on the asuras. The battle started. Devatas started to target Raktbeej, but his blessing still obstructed the Devatas to make any headway in the fight. In fact, when Devatas would inflict any blow Raktbeej, the drops of blood from his body, as they touched the ground, would sprout into another Raktbeej, thus strengthening the army of asuras.

The Mother Goddess then took on the form of Maa Kaali and joined the battle. The appearance and demeanor of the Mother in the Kaali form was frightening. Completely black in appearance from head to toe, wearing black, long black hair loose open and waving, a garland made of skulls in the neck, and wearing a skirt made from the limbs of the dead, with a khadag (a sword like weapon, curved in a different way) in one hand, and bowl made from the outer layer of a coconut, in the other hand. The fearful appearance was further enhanced with a long red tongue that perpetually remained outside the mouth, waving like a blood red serpent.

She reached close to Raktbeej and hit him with the khadag. An injured Raktbeej started to bleed from his wounds. Maa Kaali reached out with her waving tongue and started to lap up every drop of his blood that oozed out of his wounds. Working feverishly with her long tongue, she picked up very drop of blood from Raktbeej’s body, and continued to strike him. Losing blood, he started to become weak, as he continued to lose blood and his strength. And the boon was going waste because Maa Kali did not allow the drops of his blood to reach the ground. Finally, Maa Kaali cut off the head of Raktbeej with a blow from her khadag. To catch the falling blood from the dethatched neck, Maa Kali held the coconut bowl under it, once again not allowing even a drop of blood to fall on the ground. As the cup would overflow, Maa Kaali would drink from it, to make room to hold more blood.

The appearance and sight of the Mother was really frightful. She seemed to not be under Her own control. Waving the khadag in anger, she started to destroy anything and anybody that crossed her path. The army of asuras was thus decimated, but the Mother could not be stopped. The Devatas then prayed to Lord Shiv and requested him to rescue them from the wrath of Maa Kaali. Lord Shiv appeared to face Maa Kaali, but he too could not dissuade her and calm her down. She continued in her stride, destroying everything in her path. Then Lord Shiv lay down on the ground, in the path where she was headed. Maa Kaali continued in her stride and finally set a foot on Lord Shiv himself. Realizing suddenly that she had stepped on to her own consort, she came to a halt. Her anger dissipated, she stepped back and became calm.

There is a reason that describe this episode today. Today is the day of the worship of Maa Kaalratri, or Maa Kaali, and so it is appropriate to recount her legend. I remember hearing this narrative recounted to me by elders, or reading it in books, and I always used to wonder at the bizarre description of this event. Years passed and as I came to high school, I would finally get a reasonable explanation of this narrative. In the biology class, as we read about viruses and infections and deadly diseases, it suddenly came together in my mind that this description of Maa Kaali is so analogous to weeding out a deadly disease. Raktbeej is the infection that multiplies incessantly. The more you try to root it out, the more it spreads. Like the drops of blood falling on ground, it is the viruses that attack healthy cells, they multiply, and then attack more healthy cells.  Maa Kaali is likened to the antidote to the infection, that attempts to cut down the avenues for the infection to spread, not allowing it to reach more healthy cells thus depriving it of its resources to multiply.

That is quite much the situation that is faced by the world in present times. An unbridled and unknown new infection is running rampant through the human population, incurring a very high toll of fatalities. The mechanism of isolation and social distancing is analogous to not allowing the drops of blood of Raktbeej to fall on the ground, and not find newer option to breed and grow. The ideas that had formed in my mind during my high school studies of biology, are kind of getting reflected in the events of this worldwide spread of the deadly virus infection. The containment solution is in being isolated and not allowing propagation. Countries that are practicing this measure, are being somewhat successful in minimizing the fatal damage to the population. And the nations that, for whatever reason of culture or politics are failing to exercise this discipline, are on the way to incur heavy losses in terms of human life. A scenario that is described in our ancient texts is playing out in the real world with a very eerie congruence.

So, the day to pray to Maa Kaali today, is the day also to understand this mechanism of disallowing Raktbeej to replicate itself and to curtail the damage that can be done by an uncontrolled spread of this contagion.

May the Mother Goddess Maa Kaali appear once again on this earth, and destroy this Raktbeej like malady, cleanse this earth and rescue her children.

Ameen.

Blog Day :

4273 Post No. : 15506

A rain drop falls on a smoldering matchstick. And extinguishes it. A poet sees this happening. And the poet’s mind creates the lines that go on to become an iconic song that lead the on screen performer by hand to the rising heights of super-stardom. You may have already guessed it. Ah yes, I am talking about ‘Amar Prem’ (1971) and Rajesh Khanna. The song – “Chingaari Koi Bhadke To Saawan Usey Bhujaaye”. And the poet behind this hit song – Anand Bakshi.

Remembering Anand Bakshi on his remembrance day today. He passed away this day in 2002.

A career that had quite a chequered start, lasted for more than 4 decades. And continued to produce hits after hits all the way till he passed away. Chequered in that he joined the army in 1947 as a switchboard operator in the Signals Core; left the army and came to Bombay (now Mumbai) in early 1950s; made no headway and in despair, returned to join the army; but could not get rid of the film-bug. He resigned from the army again in 1956 and came to Bombay once again. This time he stuck it out. Bhagwan Dada gave him a break in his 1958 film ‘Bhala Aadmi’. The young Anand, then 27 years old, penned six songs for that film. One song by him had already appeared in an obscure 1957 film ‘Silver King’. Sadly, maybe expectedly, no songs of ‘Silver King’ are available. His debut song is probably lost forever, barring some miracle discovery.

The stumbling start led to success, slowly but surely. Popular hits came in ones and twos, and Anand continued to push his career graph, always up and up. Seven films carried his songs in 1959. Not popular hits, but surely a few are a good listen. Attention came his way in 1960, with films like ‘Air Mail’ – “Shoon Shadap Nazron Ki Jhadap” and “Tumhin Ne Mera Dil Chheen Kar”; ‘Mehlon Ke Khwab’ – “Lo Ji Bujh Gayi Bijli Pyaar Ki”; ‘Zameen Ke Taare’ – “Tinke Pe Tinka, Chhutti Ke Din Ka”; Then in 1961 came the film ‘Razia Sultana’ with Nirupa Roy and Jairaj in lead roles. The duet written by Anand went on to become an all time favorite – “Dhalti Jaaye Raat, Keh Le Dil Ki Baat”.

Then came 1962, with the perennial favorite qawwaali – “Meri Taveer Le Ke Kya Karoge”. Plus the films ‘Mehndi Lagi Mere Haath’, ‘Baanke Saanwariya’ with a good repertoire of songs by Anand. And the year was topped by the one song he wrote for ‘Vallah Kya Baat Hai’ – “Ghame e Hasti Se Bas Begaana Hota”. He was 32 years of age.

1963 was adorned with another wonderful qawwali from his pen. The film – ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai’, and the song – “Tumhen Husn De Ke Khuda Ne Sitamgar Banaaya Banaaya”. That year, we also have from him “Taaron Ki Chhaon Taley, Shamma Parwaane Miley” in the film ‘Zaraak Khan’, and the sterling Mukesh solo – “Chaand Aaahen Bharega” from the film ‘Phool Baney Angaare’, which was otherwise loaded with a set of charming hits.

Next was 1964 (of course 🙂 ) and the film for which Anand teamed up with Laxmi-Pyaare to produce a set of songs that have remained on the lips and in the mind of music lovers since then – ‘Mr X In Bombay’. And this was the year that this young poet made it to the Binaca Geet Mala listing (at no. 6) for the first time with the song – “Mere Mehboob Qayaamat Hogi”. What a song it is, and what a set of lilting songs this film carries. Anand’s foothold in the tinsel town was now firm and very steady.

1965 – and just the sampling of films should be enough – ‘Himalay Ki God Mein’, ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’, ‘Lutera’, ‘Shriman Funtoosh’ and ‘Teesra Kaun’ – memorable songs that are too numerous to be listed individually. Notable mentions required though, for “Hamen Kya Jo Har Su Ujaale Huye Hain” from ‘Namaste Ji’ and “Ye Dard Bhara Afsaana” from ‘Shriman Funtoosh’. And yes – “Pyaar Ka Fasaana Bana Le Dil Deewaana” from ‘Teesra Kaun’.

Going from strength to strength, Anand rounded off the year 1966 with fabulous songs in films like ‘Aasra’, ‘Aaye Din Bahaar Ke’, ‘Devar’, ‘Pati Patni’, ‘Preet Na Jaane Reet’, ‘Professor X’,  and ‘Sunehre Qadam’.

In 1967, Anand completed 10 years of his career in the Bombay film industry with top hits in films like ‘Milan’, ‘Farz’, ‘Night In London’, ‘Aamne Saamne’, ‘Milan Ki Raat’, ‘Chandan Ka Palna’, and ‘Taqdeer’. What more to say.

The remaining years of the 1960s decade – even listing a sampler would be too much space to cover. Suffice to say that the super hit “Mere Sapnon Ki Raani. . .” that truly launched Rajesh Khanna on the way to super stardom, came from the pen of Anand Bakshi.

And he would go on writing for another three and a half decades – including perennial favorites like “Hum Ko Tumse Ho Gaya Hai Pyaar Kya Karen” (‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, 1977), “Tujhe Dekha To Ye Jaana Sanam” (‘Dilwaale Dulhaniya Le Jaayenge’, 1995), and thousands more – in fact a total of 3,500 songs spread out across more than 635 films. Such a career cannot be done justice in a single blog post. 🙂

Thanks Anand Bakshi ji, for so many wonderful memories to hum and enjoy.

Coming to the song for today. As I was seeking to get one of his earliest songs to present today, I came upon this wonderful Rafi solo that has been tuned by S Mohinder. The film is ‘Sun To Le Haseena’ which belongs to his debut year 1958.

Produced under the banner of Filmistan Limited, the film is directed by SP Bakshi. The star cast is listed as Shashikala, Ravindra Kapoor, Agha, P Kailash, Badri Prasad, Randhir, Gulab, Sabita Chatterjee, Kanu Rai, Manju, Manohar Geer, Majnu, Vitthal Das Panchotia, Madhu Apte, Ramlal, Leela, Bazid Khan, Rajeshwar Singh, Noor, Chandramohan, Pathak, Shantaram, Ravi Tandon, Sundar, and Pal.

The film has a total of seven songs written by four songwriters, with Anand’s contribution tally is three. (Other songwriters are Sarshaar Sailaani, Kaif Irfaani and Raahil Gorakhpuri). This is the second song of this film, written by him to be showcased here, and the third song from the film.

Rafi Sb has rendered this call-to-the-beloved song with gusto. A very interesting listen, I am sure you will agree.

Blog Day :

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 11
—————————————————–

This post is likely the one which has been the most scrambled for. Leap day it is. So much history and folklore around this date, no doubt. But notwithstanding that, it struck us quite late in the day, as to how such a rare occasion be not celebrated, and not represented on our blog. We are all adept at combining celebrations and conjuring up milestones and reasons to post a celebratory article. So how come this leap day phenomena be left by the side. So we got going to get something in place, but it was quite late that we got started. Here is a brief about the gensis.

Time is 6:48 in the evening. An innocent query laden email from dear Arun ji lands in the mail box. He is enquiring about 29th Feb, 2016. The date seems to be blanked out on the blog, so were not posts added that day or is that an error of logging on the blog.

7:30 pm comes the response from Atul ji – yes, in 2016, the leap day actually was dot day.

Within one minute at 7.31 pm lands another follow up from Atul ji – and I quote –

“Today I wanted to post a blog leap day challenge, but my internet at home as well as office let me down. Atul”

There is radio silence for another about one hour or so. Around 8:20, I am back on my laptop, checking emails, and run into this exchange that has recently happened. It is 8:25 pm by the time I jump into the flow, and write to Atul ji, enquiring what did he have in mind.

Another 25 minutes creep by. It is 8:52 when Atul ji reply lands in the mail box. He wanted to follow up with a ‘challenge’ type post using one of the un-yippeee’d films from the list of posts from 29th Feb, 2012. Despite all the lethargy and laziness, I am stirred up to take on this challenge. Quickly I make a check of the films used on 29th Feb 2012. The list reads like,

Ban Ban Ke Bigadti Hai Taqdeer Gareebon Ki Guzaara 1954
Dil Ko Hai Tumse Pyaar Kyun NFS – Jagmohan `Sursagar` 1945
Tum Saamne Aakar Jis Dam Khazaanchi 1958
Dhal Chuki Shaam E Gham Kohinoor 1960
Bhare Hain Aankh Mein Aansoo Saara Jahaan Hamaara 1961
Manzil Ki Chaah Mein Devdas 1955

Only two films stand out as the candidates for this challenge – ‘Guzaara’ from 1954 and ‘Saara Jahaan Hamaara’ from 1961. Given the familiarity of the film and songs, I am tempted to attempt ‘Saara Jahaan Hamaara’. But then another peculiarity tries to pull my attention. The film ‘Guzaara’ from 1954 made its debut on the blog on this day – the leap – of 2012. And then – nothing else. For the past 8 years, the film has been sitting neglected, on one of the most interesting calendar days in, well, in the calendar. 🙂

And so, I decided to pick ‘Guzaara’. I sent out an email to Atul ji at 9:11 (that sounds almost sinister. . .) with the message – “‘Guzaara’ from 1954 would be an interesting candidate. Only one song, posted on leap day 2012, now second song on leap day 2020. 😀 :D”.

This time, the response is very immediate. Within a minute Atul ji confirms that he was also thinking to pick this film.

Poor ‘Guzaara’ – has been sitting on the bench for – goodness, 8 years. आते जाते हुये, the other films would ask cursorily – “How’s it going? Idling for long??”

And listlessly (pun intended) ‘Guzaara’ would reply – “गुज़ारा चल रहा है”. :D)  :D)

And then suddenly another thought passed into the mind’s channels. Debut on the leap day in 2012, no action till the leap day on 2020, when the second song gets posted. And I hope this does not lead to a typecasting (so common in the industry, no?). because if it does, then poor ‘Guzaara’ would take more than two decades to get yippeee’d for its 8 songs. (LOL)

‘Guzaara’ is a social film from the production house of Aaina Pictures, Bombay produced and directed by SM Yusuf. The star cast is listed as Karan Diwan, Paro, Jabeen, Mirza Musharraf, Chand Burque, Baby Naaz, Romi, SM Yusuf, Manju, Tiwari, Baalam, Faizi, Sangeeta, Chhagan Romeo, Mehru. Hmmm. . . Karan Dewan and Paro, this would have been an important film of its time. The eight songs of this film are written by Fauq Zami – two songs, Muneer Lakhnavi – one song, and Raja Mehdi Ali Khan five songs. The music direction is by Ghulam Mohammed. The film comes from the same year as ‘Mirza Ghalib’, one of the most well known films with music by him.

Today’s song is a “sales pitch” song, rendered by Rafi Sb. The item for sale is ‘bhajia’, and the song goes along with homilies and interesting advises, as it tries to make better of selling ‘pakodas’. 😉 Looking at the star cast, the most likely candidate for performing this song is Karan Dewan himself. I cannot bring myself to imagine that Mirza Musharraf or Baalam would take on performing this song on screen. I would request our more knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about this song, and the film.

Ah so, the leap challenge, at last. And the film gets its second song on the blog, on the same leap day, eight years apart. Come to think of it – do we know what is the origin of the term ‘leap’ as it applies to this date and this calendar terminology. Hmmm. . . as we look at the calendars progression from one year to the next, and given 365 days in the year and 7 days in the week, the thumb rule is that the new year starts on the weekday, next to the day on which the previous year starts. Except for this peculiar creature called ‘leap year’ when the sequence of week day ‘leaps’ ahead by one day. Oh yes, this is the simple explanation available from dictionary.com.

I am sure all are familiar with the rules of the Julian calendar, set is place by Julius Ceaser, which instituted this leap day’s concept, and the later correction by Pope Gregory, resulting in the Gregorian calendar that makes an exception for missing a leap year every 100th year, but then also not missing it every 400th year, to account for the correct number of days passing per year, given that the earth uses up 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds, give or take a few milliseconds here and there, to completely go once around the sun. That is being astronomically correct. Otherwise, what would we know better, just being used for waking up with sunrise every day. Leap day, leap year – what does it matter. At the end of the day, and quoting from another song by Rafi Sb – “Jitni Likhi Thhi Muqaddar Mein. . .” – the number of breaths destined are what it is. History records that in 1582, when Pope Gregory announced this correction to the calendar, the official dates were adjusted by 10 days, There were riots in the city of Vatican and the common man protested, wanting 10 days of their lives to be returned.

Ah well, as the world turns. And not very precisely so. 🙂

So listen to Rafi Sb, and enjoy the ‘bhajias’.
