“Aaina”(1974) was produced by N Selvaraja and L Duraiswamy and was directed by K Balachandar for Kalakendra Films production. The movie had Mumtaz, Rajesh Khanna, A.K.Hangal, Nirupa Roy, Rita Bhaduri, Ratan Chopra, Lalita Pawar, Jayasudha, Adil Aman, Manmohan Krishna, Anjum Savera, Vandana Rane, Yasmin, Baby Seema, Kalpana, Jagdish Raj, Polson, Madhukar, Brahmachari, Suraj, Prem Kumar, Master Paresh Kumar, Master Jaganath, Madan Puri, Suresh Chatwal, Jagdeep etc in it. This movie had Neetu Singh and Dharmendra in special appearances. The film also had Kamal Hasan in it who was also one of the dance directors of the movie.

The movie had five songs in it. Three songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Aaina”(1974) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

The song is picturised as a wedding ritual song where Mumtaz, playing a saheli of the bride is seen teasing the bridegroom. While I can identify a few actors seen in the picturisation (such as Nirupa Roy), I am unable to identify most of them. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.


Song-Kaho to aaj bol doon (Aaina)(1974) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-Naushad
Chorus

Lyrics

kaho to aaj bol doon

kaho to aaj bol doon
main saare bhed khol doon
ke dulha sharmaaye
rang ud ud jaaye
kaho to aaj bol doon
main saare bhed khol doon
ke dulha sharmaaye
rang ud ud jaaye

mujhko maaloom hai sab
dhang iske hain ajab
kabhi jhaanke ye idhar
kabhi taake ye udar
har haseena pe mare
roop kya kya na bhare
laakh nadaan lage
mujhko shaitaan lage ae ae
kaho to
haha
kaho to aaj bol doon
mai sare bhed khol doon
ke dulha sharmaaye
rang ud ud jaaye

itna bhookha hai ke bas mujhko aata hai taras
iske man bhaaye sabhi
jo mile khaaye sabhi
chaahe jhootha hi mile
sabka thhooka hi mile
ye kahaan tak hai gira
munh na khulvaao mera
kaho to
kyun
kaho to aaj bol doon
main saare bhed khol doon
ke dulha sharmaaye
rang ud ud jaaye

poochho dulhe se zara
kyun hai gusse mein bhara
aisi kya maine kahi
teer ban ke jo lagi
kyun jhuki jaaye nazar
kyun paseene mein hai tar
iski baaten main sabhi kah deti hoon abhi ee
kaho to aaj bol doon
ho o
kaho to
kaho to aaj bol doon
main saare bhed khol doon
ke dulha sharmaaye
rang ud ud jaaye

ये किसने गीत छेड़ा॰ ॰ ॰

There is always a freshness – a freshness as fresh as the cool early morning breeze. Pick up any film, and you will find this freshness wash all over you, as the music and the songs of that film play. Be it “Nadiya Kinaare Heraaye Aayi Kangna”, or “Naina Diwaane, Ik Nahin Maanen”, or “Thandi Hawaayen, Lehra Ke Aayen”, or “Ye Raat Ye Chandani Phir Kahaan”, or “Phaili Huyin Hain Sapnon Ki Baahen”, or “O Nigaahen Mastaana”, or “Mehfil Mein Aaye Wo Aaj Dheere Se”, or “Khoya Khoya Chaand”, or “Dil Ka Bhanwar Kare Pukaar”, or “Haule-Haule Jiya Dole”, or “O Mere Bairaagi Bhanwra”, or “Megha Chhaaye Aadhi Raat”, or “Sun Ree Pawan, Pawan Purvaiya”, or “Sandhyaa Jo Aaye Mann Ud Jaaye”. . . the list seems to be endless.

Other authors have written about this; this and the daily routine of his morning walk – creating the rhythm with snapping of his fingers, and humming the melody softly in his breaths. That is where most of his masterpieces have come from – plucked out of the cool and fresh morning breeze during his morning walks. One can almost feel as if he saw the peacock when he contemplated on “Mann Mor Hua Matwaala. . .”. And one can feel the whiff of cold breeze in “Thandi Hawa Ka Shor Hai. . .” as the stanza lines of “Chupke Se Miley Pyaase Pyaase. . .”. Maybe it was an encounter with a dreamy eyed young lady that brought to life “Yaad Aa Gayin Wo Nasheeli Nigaahen. . .”. Or that the “Khoya Khoya Chaand. . .” melody came about on a day when the moon was still visible in the early morning gray skies. Conjectures all, but surely, the music came with the early morning breeze.

One also wonders where the eternity of melancholy came to him – “Pyaar Ne Kitne Sapne Dekhe. . .”, “Dukhi Mann Mere. . .”, “Bharam Teri Wafaaon Ka. . .”, “Badi Sooni Sooni Hai. . .”, “Jaane Wo Kaise Log The. . .”, “Jaayen To Jaayen Kahaan. . .”, “Saathi Na Koi Manzil. . .”, “1 . .”, “Tum Mujhse Door Chale Jaana Na. . .” – and many more. Maybe so, that these compositions simply cannot be believed to exist outside of Sachin Da’s regime.

Celebrating the anniversary of his birth today (1st October), I present this completely forgotten and unknown piece of music that is a very short song that plays when the credits of the film ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ (1971) are rolling on the screen. Practically all the songs that Sachin Da has sung for the screen, have all been accounted for on our blog. But not this one.

The unmistakable folk flavor, that is Sachin Da’s favourite genre, is present predominantly in this music piece. As the prelude of this music plays on, one is struck by how the maestro has melded the music with the sounds of machinery and the hammering sound of the miner’s picks and axes. Really remarkable.

Song – Phulwa Mangaao Zara Angna Sajaao Gori (Tere Mere Sapne) (1971) Singer – SD Burman, Lyrics – Neeraj, MD – SD  Burman

Lyrics

hey ey..ey..ey
phulwa mangaao zara angna sajaao gori
bichhde balam ghar aayenge

ye ey..ey..ey
jiyaha ye doley jaise neem ki hi pori
bichhde balam ghar aayenge

By now it seems to have become a routine for me to make only cameos on this blog, triggered either by a memorable event (such as the blog’s tenth anniversary) or a “nudge” from another Atulite. 🙂

I will not seek to correct this impression – for the facts speak for themselves. I will also not make any excuse of “being busy” – that would only be an insult to people like Atul and Sudhir ji who manage to give so much time to the blog, despite so many demands on their time.

So no excuse – mea culpa. Today’s post is also a result of a nudge – this time from Peevisie’s Mom.

It happens to be the birthday of Feroz Khan today – and she called me up to remind me of it. A while ago, she and I had discussed that the popular song “Hamaare Siwa. . .” (‘Apradh’ – 1972) had not yet been posted on the blog – so she called up to remind me that there was an occasion coming up to remedy the situation. 🙂 So here is the post for this song – and to remember Feroz Khan.

I remember writing about Feroz Khan earlier – I think it was a couple of years ago. I haven’t checked that post – and am writing purely from my thoughts of the moment – so kindly excuse me if much of what I say is repetitive.

Feroz Khan, for me, has his own place in Hindi cinema. There are many who had a more successful career than Feroz. Certainly as an actor, he wasn’t rated all too highly, if I’m to be brutally honest. He had his moments, but one would have to be disingenuous about his acting achievements, to put him in the same league as at least a dozen other actors/stars.

And though he was very successful as a producer/director, there have been more successful producers / directors. And yet, for me, Feroz holds his own in Hindi cinema. As a personality, he seemed to me to have something about him that made him different from others. I think it was the way he carried himself.

Much of my exposure to Feroz was, of course, in the 1970s. By that time he had turned producer – so I got to see him both as actor and producer – in films like ‘Apradh’ (1972), ‘Dharmatma’ (1975) and ‘Qurbani’ (1980). All these films have one thing in common – they are all made on a grand scale, with no expenses spared, no corners cut in producing an extravagant spectacle for the audience. Naturally this became the image of Feroz Khan in my mind – and I think, for most people. His films are glamorous, with foreign locales, expensive cars and the like. Feroz seemed to revel in this flamboyant image – and continued it through the 1980s and 90s in films like ‘Janbaaz’ (1986), ‘Dayavan’ (1988) and ‘Yalgaar’ (1992).

If the films made by him are to be taken as representative of his life, one would not be mistaken in saying that Feroz lived life king-size. I enjoyed each one of these films – they were thoroughly entertaining, with a decent story line (which is very important for me!) and good songs too. Most of the songs of films made by Feroz became super-hits, suggesting he had a good ear for music.

And yet, for me, the story doesn’t end here. It is the first half of his career, so very different from the second half, that makes his story fascinating for me. Like I’ve said before, my clearest memories of Feroz are from his films of the 1970s. But he acted in many films in the 1960s too – and any reference to his work that does not mention this would be incomplete.

One of my friends once jokingly said “Feroz Khan probably got into producing his own films because he got fed up of never getting the heroine.” 🙂

Yes, said in jest, but it is true that in many of his films till he began making his own, Feroz missed out. In some early films, he was the villain – so then it’s understandable. But in many other films too, even as the good / semi-good guy, he would end up not getting the heroine. In ‘Oonche Log’ (1964), the heroine dies – in ‘Mela’ (1970), his character dies as he “sacrifices” for his brother. And in films like ‘Aarzoo’ (1965), ‘Aadmi Aur Insaan’ (1969), ‘Pyaasi Shaam’ (1969), ‘Safar’ (1970), ‘Upaasna’ (1971), the heroine loves the other guy. Small consolation maybe that in ‘Darinda’ (1977) he manages to turn the tables on Sunil Dutt for ‘Pyaasi Shaam’ (1969). 🙂

Of course, that was how the script was written – but it always made me feel bad to see Feroz lose out. 🙂 , even though he’d occasionally get to sing lovely songs like “Darpan Ko Dekha. . .”  and “Jo Tumko Ho Pasand. . .” in the process. 🙂

Then there were those black-and-white films of the 60s. Many not well-known, probably then categorized as “B’’ films. Many with Mumtaz, herself then not in the A league. Having both gone through similar careers in the 60s, Feroz and Mumtaz were very good friends – and it’s hardly surprising that Mumtaz was his lead when he produced Apradh (1972).

One song from a Feroz “B” film I fondly remember is “Anjaan hai koi” (‘Anjaan Hai Koi’ – 1969). I think this song was quite popular in its time – at least I remember it from my childhood. Other less-known Feroz films I remember are ‘Ek Paheli’ (1971) with Tanuja (“Main Ek Paheli Hoon”) and ‘Anjaan Raahen’ (1974) with Asha Parekh (“Mujhe Nahin Poochhni Tumse Beeti Baatein”).

And of course, ‘Kashmakash’ (1973) and films like ‘Khote Sikke’ (1974) and ‘Kaala Sona’ (1975). The last-two were typical films that could have been made for Feroz – I remember enjoying both of them. 🙂

In general, I liked watching his films, especially of the 70s and later – they were never boring. Feroz himself, while never having pretensions to being a great actor, was fun to watch. And one of my favourite Rafisaab songs is picturised on him – “Jaag Dil-e-Deewaana”. 🙂 (‘Oonche Log’ – 1965).

So today, on his birthday, I have fond memories of Feroz Khan – and want to thank him for making entertaining films, with lovely songs. Today’s song is from ‘Apradh’ (1972) – the once very popular “Hamaare Siwa”. I remember listening to it a lot on radio at the time.

I saw the movie ages ago – sometime in the 70s. Have not seen it since, so I don’t remember anything of the story. I think it was something to do with smuggling, and had a lot of foreign locales, but sorry, I can’t remember any more than this. It’s surprising that in more than 10 years on this blog, the song hasn’t been posted yet. But better late than never, I guess.

So today, on Feroz Khan’s birthday, let’s all enjoy this song from his own film – the first film he produced/directed.

 

Song – Hamaare Siwa Tumhaare Aur Kitne Deewaane Hain (Apradh) (1972) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Indeevar, MD – Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
hamaare?
haan tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain
kasam se kisi ko nahin main jaanti
achha?
aur kisi ko nahin pehchaanti
arrey chhodo chhodo ye to bahaane hain
hamaare siwa
haan tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain

khoobsoorati aur wafaa
dekhi na donon ek jagah
haan haan dekhi na donon ek jagah
hote hain mard bade shakki
baat hai ye bilkul pakki
bholi si
aati ho nazar
haan haan bholi si
aati ho nazar
ho chanchal chaalaak magar
aurat ka dil jaane nahin
aap hamen pehchaane nahin
chhodo chhodo hum bhi sayaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain

tum ho pareshaan kis gham se
raaz-e-dil keh do hum se
haan haan raaz-e-dil keh do hum se
apni kaho chhodo meri
karte ho kyon hera pheri
yaaron pe tohmat lagaate nahin
yaaron pe tohmat lagaate nahin
sab ko nishaana banaate nahin
khud harjaayee bhanwre ho tum
ek jagah kab thehre ho tum
chhodo chhodo hum to parwaane hain

hamaare siwa
haan tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain
tumhaare aur kitne thikaane hain
kasam se kisi ko nahin main jaanti
hmm
aur kisi ko nahin pehchaanti
arrey chhodo chhodo ye to bahaane hain
hamaare siwa
tumhaare aur kitne deewaane hain

हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
हमारे?
हाँ तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं
कसम से किसी को नहीं मैं जानती
अच्छा?
और किसी को नहीं पहचानती
अरे छोड़ो छोड़ो ये तो बहाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं

खूबसूरती और वफा
देखी न दोनों एक जगह
हाँ हाँ देखी न दोनों एक जगह
होते हैं मर्द बड़े शक्की
बात है ये बिलकुल पक्की
भोली सी आती हो नज़र
हो चंचल चालाक मगर
औरत का दिल जाने नहीं
आप हमें पहचाने नहीं
छोड़ो छोड़ो हम भी सयाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं

तुम हो परेशान किस ग़म से
राज़ ए दिल कह दो हमसे
हाँ हाँ राज़ ए दिल कह दो हमसे
अपनी कहो छोड़ो मेरी
करते हो क्यों हेरा फेरी
यारों पे तोहमत लगाते नहीं
यारों पे तोहमत लगाते नहीं
सबको निशाना बनाते नहीं
खुद हरजाई भँवरे हो तुम
एक जगह कब ठहरे हो तुम
छोड़ो छोड़ो हम तो परवाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं
तुम्हारे और कितने ठिकाने हैं
कसम से किसी को नहीं मैं जानती
हम्म॰॰॰
और किसी को नहीं पहचानती
अरे छोड़ो छोड़ो ये तो बहाने हैं
हमारे सिवा
तुम्हारे और कितने दीवाने हैं

Blog Day : 3578 Post No. : 14326

Today (5 may 2018) is the twelfth rememberance day of Naushad (26 December 1919 – 5 May 2006).

Naushad composed just above 600 songs in 64 Hindi movies. 530 songs from 60 of his movies have been covered in the blog. 49 of these movies have already been YIPPEED in the blog. So unlike other music blogs/ radio stations/ TV stations, who play the usual well known songs as always, we in this blog only have 70 odd Naushad compositions from 15 movies to chose from, seeing that we do not repeat a song in the blog.

Seeing that all Naushad movies of 1950s and 1960s have already been YIPPEED, we only have Naushad songs of 1970s and beyond left to be covered.

Here is a song from “Aaina”(1974) as a tribute to Naushad. This movie was a Kalakendra Films production. It was produced by N Selvaraja and L Duraiswamy and was directed by K Balachandar. The movie had Mumtaz, Rajesh Khanna, A.K.Hangal, Nirupa Roy, Rita Bhaduri,Ratan Chopra, Lalita Pawar, Jayasudha,Adil Aman, Manmohan Krishna, Anjum Savera,Vandana Rane, Yasmin,Baby Seema, Kalpana, Jagdish Raj, Polson, Madhukar, Brahmachari, Suraj, Prem Kumar, Master Paresh Kumar, Master Jaganath, Madan Puri, Suresh Chatwal, Jagdeepetc in it. This movie had Neetu Singh and Dharmendra in special appearances. The film also had Kamal Hasan in it who was also one of the dance directors of the movie.

The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the blog.

This song, the third from the movie, is sung by Lata. Jaan Nisaar Akhtar is the lyricist.

The song is picturised as a radio song on Reeta Bhaduri, who is seen singing this song as a tribute to Mumtaz, who plays the long suffering and scarificing bhartiya naari in the movie, as far as I can tell from the picturisation of this song.

The picturisation also shows many other persons, including Nirupa Roy, listening to the broadcast of this song on radio.


Song-Wo jo auron ki khaatir jiye (Aaina)(1974) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Jaan Nisaar Akhtar, MD-Naushad

Lyrics

wo jo auron ki khaatir jiye mar mite
sochti hoon unhen kya mila
wo jo auron ki khaatir jiye mar mite
sochti hoon unhen kya mila
kya mila
kya mila

jaise baadal barasta hua
pyaas jag ki bujhaata hai
aa aa aa
jaise baadal barasta hua
pyaas jag ki bujhaata hai
jaise chandan sabhi ke liye
apni kushboo lutaata rahaa aa
yoonhi tum apna jeevan lutaati rahi
par tumhen pyaar kiska mila
wo jo auron ki khaatir jiye mar mite
sochti hoon unhen kya mila

khwaab dekhe hamaare liye
ek pal bhi agar so gayi ee ee
khwaab dekhe hamaare liye
ek pal bhi agar so gayi
tum ho maa saare pariwaar ki ee
sabki fikaron mein tum kho gayi ee
tum ho ma sare pariwar ki ee
sabki fikaron me tum kho gayi ee
tum na biyahi
na hatho me mehndi rachi
aur na maathe ko teeka mila
wo jo auron ki khaatir
unhen kya mila

ek aurat ho meri taraha
phir bhi lagti ho devi mujhe
aa aa
ek aurat ho meri tarha
phir bhi lagti ho devi mujhe
apna sab kuchh mitaaya magar
ik nayi zindagi di mujhe ae
apna sab kuch mitaya magar
ik nayi zindagi di mujhe ae
har andhere mein jalti pighalti rahi
dil tumhen deep jaisa mila
wo jo auron ki khaatir jiye mar mite
sochti hoon unhen kya mila
kya mila
kya mila

“Bandhe Haath”(1973) was directed by O.P.Goyal for Ralhan Productions, Bombay. The movie had Mumtaz, Amitabh Bachchan, O.P.Ralhan, Kumud Chhugani, Ajit, Anjana, Sardar Akhtar, Ram Mohan, Ranjit, Madan Puri, Gajanan Jagirdar, Asit Sen, Tun Tun, Baldev Mehta, Pinchoo Kapoor, Kamaldeep, Moolchand, Sikandar, Ravikant, Ratan Gourang, Maqbool, Usha Amershi, Vanita Thakur etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Five of these songs have been covered in the past.

Details of the five songs that have already been covered in the past are given below:-

Here is the sixth and final song from “Bandhe Haath”(1973) to appear in the blog. The song is a stage dance performance song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

Picturisation shos that it is a “tribal” dance song. A “tribal” dance song in Hindi consists of skimpily dressed dancers, wearing strange outfits / masks etc that are vaguely of African or Red Indian origin.

The main female dancer is a skimpily clad Mumtaz who makes sure that the movie makers save money hiring a Helen or Padma Khanna for this dance sequence. She alongwith other similarly dressed females perform this dance in the presence of a housefull auditorium.

Whenever such performances take place in a Hindi movie, one can be rest assured that baddies would be swarming the place. This song is no exception. We find a galaxy of baddies, led by Ajit, Madan Puri etc marking their attendance. They are looking for Amitabh Bachchan, who like the baddies would invariably find himself in the vicinity of such a dance performance.

SAmitab Bachchan may be hiding in the outfit of a Sheikh, but he cannot escape from Ajit’s eagle eyes, who then passes on the intelligence to his minions as well as a policeman (Ram Mohan ?). What is the standard way in which our Hindi movie heroes try to hide from the baddies ? The join the dance performance. How an uninvited dancer can join in the performance and how the back stage organisers allow this to happen is something that we will never know. And how the hero is aware of the lyrics as well as the corrrect dance steps for the dance is also something that is a mystery to all. This supposedly disguised hero then lip syncs and dances loudly and quite prominently which is their standard attempt to hide from the baddies. :).

That is not all, we find another disguised dancer (O P Ralhan ?) joining in, no doubt easily dodging the back stage managers to the performance, and he too starts to sing and dance loudly. In his part of the song and dance, he “discreetly” passes on the information that baddies are in hot pursuit of him.

It all sounds quite silly really, but we are so used to such dance performances that we do not bat out eyelids. 🙂

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the people who are visible in the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Bandhe Haath”(1973) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Here is the sixth and final song from “Pardesi”(1970) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

What a hidden gem of a song it is ! It is a synchronised dance song picturised on Mumtaz and Padma Khanna. The picturisation shows people gathered around the dancers who sing and dance while we have Manmohan Krishna playing “Been” and a gentleman (whom I am unable to identify) playing guitar.

This song can be described as a snake dance song, a dance form which has become quite popular nowadays thanks to Bangladeshi cricketers. 🙂 The snake dance steps of theb Bangladeshi cricketers were taken from the “Nagina”(1986) song Main teri dushman dushman tu meri main naagan to sapera. This dance step has been mass copied by Sri Lankan cricket watching public as well as famous people (like Sunil Gavaskar, for instance) by now. So the “novelty” value of that snake dance step has been lost. Have no worry. Here is another snake dance song, one that is performed by Mumtaz and Padma Khanna. Being a synchronised dance song, it is a fit snake dance song for a pair of Bangladeshi batsmen batting together at the crease. They can dance like Mumtaz and Padma Khanna whenever they feel that that are on the verge of winning a match. 🙂 And do not forget to give credit to me for this wonderful snake dance song. 🙂

With this song, “Pardesi”(1970) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

I had mentioned in an earlier writeup that the movie had an eve teasing song in it that shows Sanjay Khan (assisted by his sidekick Mukri) teasing Mumtaz so harshly that I wondered why section 509 of IPC (“WORD, GESTURE OR ACT INTENDED TO INSULT THE MODESTY OF A WOMAN” )should not have been invoked against Sanjay Khan. Of course, Indian public prosecutors know only two sections of IPC, viz 420 and 302, so no eve teaser hero ever gets hauled up under section 509 of IPC. 🙂

Going through the songs of the movie, I see that Mumtaz pays Sanjay Khan back with compound interest by lip syncing her own songs that embarrass Sanjay Khan in not one but several songs in the movie. Here is the sixth and final song from “Upaasna”(1971) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

If we had an eve teasing song in the movie, then this song has the roles reversed. This song can be described as an Adam teasing song, with Mumtaz playing roadside Juliet with aplomb. 🙂 The picturisation as well as the lyrics shows Mumtaz coming down upon Sanjay Khan like a ton of unwanted bricks. 🙂

With this song, “Upaasna”(1971) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Tumhen apna na banaaya to mera naam nahin (Upaasna)(1971) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

tumhen apna

pada hum jaise haseenon se tumhein kaam nahin een

samjhe huzoor
tumhe apna na banaaya

tumne auron ko sataaya to sataaya hoga

jeet lena tumhen auron ko na aaya hoga
ye to bandi ke liye
ye to bandi ke liye
koi bada kaam nahin
samjhe
tumhein apna na banaaya
to mera naam nahin

nazar jo tum se mil gayi to akadte kyun ho
nazar jo tum se mil gayi to akadte kyun ho
paas thoda sa aa gaye to bigadte kyun ho
abhi to pyaar ka
abhi to pyaar ka
aaghaaz hai anjaam nahin
dekhte jaao
tumhen apna na banaaya to mera naam nahin

kaun kehta hai hum ada se tumko jeetenge
kaun kehta hai hum ada se tumko jeetenge
hai wafa waale
hum wafa se tumko jeetenge
baat ye khaas hai ae
baat ye khaas hai
apni baat ye aam nahin
maine kaha huzoor
tumhen apna na banaaya to mera naam nahin
pada hum jaise haseenon se tumhen kaam nahin ee
pada hum jaise haseenon se tumhen kam nahin
samjhe
tumhe apna na banaaya to mera naam nahin

The movie had six songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the blog.

When I look at the songs of the movie, it appears to me that most songs have the lady giving the gentleman a hard time. But then the gentleman asked for it, by lip syncing an eve teasing song in the beginning, duly supported and encouraged by his sidekick.

This movie shows that Hell hath no fury like a teased Mumtaz who can make the life of the teaser hell. 🙂 Here is this song, the fifth song from “Upaasna”(1971) where Sanjay Khan faces an embarassing situation in a get together where Mumtaz play acts as a drunkard.

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

The film ‘Tere Mere Sapne’ is an intense personal favorite, as are many of Vijay Anand’s films. This film is a very sensitive, rational and balanced view of the healthcare systems in our country, especially in the rural areas. Of course, the time frame is of 1960s (the film released in 1971). The medical profession and healthcare systems have seen unbelievable transformations, especially the brazen and vulgar commercialization of this profession, that was once considered a hallowed service of the people. But maybe more of that later.

I like this film, in all its aspects. I know when this film was released, there were many articles in magazines and newspapers, trying to find and point out technical and medical faults with the film’s many medical scenarios. It was like pointing out the defects in a mango, that one is no doubt enjoying, but still complaining that the skin of the mango is too thick or too thin. 🙂 My counter to this discussion was – please, hold on, this is a film, a dramatization of human situations. The director is trying to tell a story, about a very important profession in the society, attempting to exhibit certain ground realities, and also trying to suggest some approaches. It is not a treatise on anatomy or cardiology, that should be scientifically perfect, but does not tell a story.

In my humble opinion, all aspects of this film are very creditable – be it the storyline development, be it the dialogues and dialogue delivery, be it the performances by individual actors – no matter what is the time that character spends on the screen, be it the pace at which the tale progresses, be it the subtle and overt messages it intends to present, or be it the music and the songs – each one of them being a gem status song. I am sure the readers are familiar with the many songs of this film, and they will agree to this statement. Neeeraj, the poet, and Sachin Da (SD Burman) have collaborated to create and bring a set of such beautiful and meaningful songs. And when one tops that with Vijay Anand’s handling of the song picturization scenarios, it is like ‘सोने पे सुहागा’.

Let us take today’s song for example. This is the penultimate song of this film to be posted (and yes, we should be on the lookout for a Yippeee call for this film, very shortly 🙂 ). The story revolves around a small town, and the small hospital this town has. The senior doctor in this hospital (role played by Mahesh Kaul), who founded this hospital, is in the evening of his life. He is part paralyzed, and not fully capable to handle his duties as the Chief Medical Officer. His wife (role played by Paro), on the other hand, rules the hospital with an iron hand, and does not allow the inability of her husband to manage the setup, to be exposed to the outside world or to the regulatory authorities. Another senior doctor in the hospital is Dr Kothari (role played by Vijay Anand), who has given up his battle with the complexities of life, and is drowning himself in drink, in the anonymity of this small out of the place village. Into this scenario steps in Dr Anand (role played by Dev Anand). A recent graduate, he is fresh young mind with hallowed dreams of serving the poor people.

The situation for the song is that an elderly couple in the village (roles played by Sapru and Dulari), very hesitatingly and bashfully announce to the doctors at the hospital that they are on way to the first child in their lives. There is happiness and good news scenario, punctuated by the sad news that the child, when born, is not breathing. Dr Kothari, the gaynecologist, is drunk and out cold, not in a position to even wake up. Dr Anand saves the day, and brings the child back into the living world, by attempting to and cleaning his windpipe which was blocking the child’s breathing. It is a day of salvation and new life for this old couple. Of course, celebration has to follow.

So the family has a celebration at their home, and this song, a dance by Jaishree T, is part of that celebration. Dr Anand is present, along with other invitees from around the village. Also present is Nisha (role played by Mumtaz) a school teacher in the local school. Of course, the amorous developments have already taken place between the new young doctor and this pretty school teacher. It is a match made in heavens, as they say. OK, but the rest of the story at another time. 😉

As with everything else in this film, even this dance is such an exquisite piece of performance. As I said earlier, in the hands of a master director like Vijay Anand – it has to be so. The performance is nothing short of a full blown onslaught on the senses, that it does not leave anytime for the viewer to breathe. The pace of music is so fast. The lyrics and words are tumbling right on top of each other. Neeraj has knitted together the words that catch you trying to keep pace with understanding them while hearing the next line. Burman Da’s melody, no matter is delivered at Presto speed, and one has to be very alert to keep pace with the music, still comes out to be an exquisite song delivery.

And the performance by Jaishree T – probably the best I have seen from her. The choreographer, Hiralal, has done a real great job in conceptualizing this dance. You may watch it more than once to check – no movements are repeated, even if the lines are being repeated. The dance goes from one breathless set of movements to the next, without a respite. The three minutes and some seconds performance just leaves one breathless, trying to keep pace with the words, the melody, the dancers movements, the dancers expressions – everything so perfectly blended together into a swirl of a pleasurable whirlwind experience. Just watch when Jaishree T dances and moves to the line – ‘sheeshi hoon kewde ke paani’. Or for that matter, just pick any line, and each line is expressed through her movements so exquisitely.

The performance and the words of the song, also work to further develop, whatever it is that is developing between the young doctor and the pretty schoolteacher, for one can catch them exchanging furtive glances as the performance progresses.

A lovely song, a fantastic performance, that I for one, simply am not tired watching it again and again. View, and enjoy, this onslaught on the senses. Exquisite performance all around.

 

Song – Mera Saajan Phool Kamal Ka, Kali Main Raat Rani Ki  (Tere Mere Sapne) (1971) Singer – Asha Bhosler, Lyrics – Neeraj, MD – SD Burman

साधना जैसे मेरे बाल रे
सोने की चिड़िया
आफ़त की पुड़िया
गुड़िया हूँ मैं जापानी
कली मैं रात रानी की
मेरा साजन
हो मेरा साजन फूल कमल का
कली मैं रात रानी की
रात की रानी चमेली की खुशबू
शीशी हूँ केवड़े के पानी
कली मैं रात रानी की
मेरा साजन फूल कमल का
कली मैं रात रानी की
