Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 71
———————————————————————————–

This date ten years ago (viz 5 september 2010) saw business as usual in the blog. Six songs from six movies were discussed chronologically in the order in which these movies were released.
Here are the details:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Mat bolo bahaar ki batiyaan re Prem Nagar-1940 11 songs covered out of 13

One can see that “Prem Nagar”(1940) and “Sikandar e Azam”(1965) are the only two movies from that day which still have a few songs left to be covered. “Prem Nagar”(1940) balance songs are not available, so that leaves us with “Sikandar e Azam”(1965) as the only movie eligible for the “Blg Ten Year Challenge” today ten years later on 5 september 2020.

Three songs from “Sikandar e Azam”(1965) have been covered so far. Here are the details:-

Hullo Atuldom

“Lafange” (1975) was a movie produced and directed by Harmesh Malhotra. It had five songs from which the blog has one song covered. It was under Sudhirji’s series of “Rafi SB -in the seventies”.

But the more popular song of the movie was its title song “log kehte hain, ke hum lafange hain”. That is not the song we shall have today. We will be celebrating the birthday of the leading lady of this movie with a song sung by Lata Mangeshkar. It is written by Anand Bakshi and Laxmi-Pyare were the music composers.

“Lafange” was another run-of-the-mill masala movie. It was the story of “beautiful Sapna (Mumtaz) who lives with her wealthy father, Dhanraj (Sapru), and a younger brother in a palatial house. Her father comes across some valuable diamonds and conceals them in a secret place. While driving one day, Dhanraj is killed, but her brother escapes without any injuries, but loses control of his vocal chords unable to tell anyone how the accident occurred, and goes missing. After Sapna wins a beauty contest, she travels to Bombay and meets with a young wheel-chair bound soldier named Gopal, and both fall in love with each other. What Sapna does not know is that Gopal is a fraud, a con-man who is only after her money. Then her life is even more complicated after she finds out that her father was killed by a man named Diwan. Before she could think of taking any further action, Diwan and his men track her down – their goal to find the secret location of the diamonds hidden by Dhanraj – and kill anyone who dares to get in their way.” (Got this story from imdb.com, I have not seen the movie).

31st July is the 73rd birthday of Mumtaz, who was at the peak of her career when she gave it all up after marriage to businessman Mayur Madhwani in 1974. She did make an appearance in the David Dhawan directed “Aandhiyan” in 1990 opposite Shatrughan Sinha as mother to Prasenjit (son of her one time co-star Biswajit.

She was born Mumtaz Aksari to Abdul Sameed Aksari and Sardar Begum Habib Agha both of whom were of Afghani origin who were settled in Bombay. It is said that Sardar Begum Habiba Agha was also an actress (needs confirmation from the stalwarts of the blog). She had a sister Malika and two step-siblings. Roopesh Kumar was her cousin. She has two daughters one of whom is married to Fardeen Khan making her Feroz Khan’s daughter-in-law. Her journey in the film industry is well known: beginning as a child actor, growing up into a dancer, vamp, character actress and reaching the pinnacle as leading lady. We have a few of her songs yet to make an appearance on the blog, this is one of them.
Wishing you a very Happy Birthday dear Mumu.

As a school going student, I was kept in strict discipline which meant going from home to school and back. No watching of movies. Even talking about movies and reading movie magazines were taboo. That did not prevent me from clandestinely reading movie magazines and books lying around the home that was apparently alright for elders to read.

It was in 1978, when I went to college and was allowed freedom as befitting a college goer. And I misused this freedom with abandon. I started watching movies left and right bunking college, as if making up for the lost time.

It was during this movie watching spree that I watched many old movies during their re runs. It included not only movies like “Sholay”(1975),”Deewaar”(1975), “Mera Gaaon Merra Desh”(1971) etc etc but also movies from earlier decades.

The movie halls where I watched most of these movies had names like Sujata, Sandhya, Vasundhara etc. But not all movie halls had feminine names. There was an old movie hall called Ratan Talkies. Closeby there was another movie hall called Rupashree which reputedly was the first movie hall of Bihar (which was opened way back in 1930s). Then there was Welfare cinema hall. These three cinema halls were closer to my residence than others. The farthest cinema hall was a “properly” named movie hall called Plaza. It was the kind of name that one found in big places like New Delhi. 🙂

It was in one matinee show in 1978 in Ratan Talkies that I watched “Kaajal”(1965). I did not have much clue about the movie. I found the movie boring in the beginning when I saw tragedy queen Meena Kumari and tragedy Kumar Raj Kumar in the movie. But then the songs began to appear one after the other. With every song, the reaction (mine as well as that of others) was, arre, this song is from this movie ! All iconic songs !

Since I had started my movie watching spree just recently, many actors were “new” for me. I watched Raj Kumar for the first time in this movie. Then there were many others whom I did not recognise at that time and regarded them as lesser actors. When I look back at the cast now, I realise that this movie had a galaxy of big names. The fact that it had Padmini, Mumtaz, Mehmood etc in it apart from the tragedy persons was lost on me. Then yesteryear legend Durga Khote was there too. Dharmendra was there whom I thankfully recognised, having seen him in a few movies earlier.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Nine of these songs have been covered in the past. When I look at the writeups of these songs, I realise that the writeups do not do justice to the songs. So I think we need to add some more contents and spice to these writeups. So I request our regulars to contribute their observations on these iconic songs.

Following songs from “Kaajal”(1965) have been covered in the blog so far.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

tere man pe chadh gaya jang
yoonhi ab kyun chamkaaye rang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa
zaraa si aur pila do bhang
main aaya dekh ke aisa rang
ke dil mera dola aa
O hai ham bhola

ज़रा सी और पिला दो भंग
मैं आया देख के ऐसा रंग

ओ है हम भोला
ज़रा सी और पिला दो भंग
मैं आया देख के ऐसा रंग

ओ है हम भोला आ
मेरी तो अक्ल हुयी है दंग
ये कैसा बदला तेरा ढंग
के तू था भोला

ओ है हम भोला आ
ब ब ब ब ब दृर्र्र्रर्र्र्रर हा

मुझे समझ न तू बैरागी
मैंने आज तपस्या त्यागी ई
हूँ हूँ हूँ हूँ
एहे एहे
मुझे समझ न तू बैरागी
मैंने आज तपस्या त्यागी
तेरे रूप का झटका खाके
मेरी सोयी जवानी जागी ई
मेरी सोयी जवानी जागी
जा हट जा अरे मलंग
करे क्यूँ बीच सभी के तंग
के तू था भोला

ओ है हम भोला
ज़रा सी और पिला दो भंग
मैं आया देख के ऐसा रंग
के दिल मेरा डोला आ
ओ है हम भोला आ

क्यूँ थाम के दिल को टहले
जो चोट लगी है सह ले ए
हाय हाय
क्यूँ थाम के दिल को टहले
जो चोट लगी है सह ले ए
उस बात पे अब जिद कैसी
जो बात न मानी पहले
जो बात न मानी पहले

क्यूँ झगडे मेरे संग
मैं तुझसे हार चुका हूँ जंग

ओ है हम भोला आ
मेरी तो अक्ल हुयी है दंग
ये कैसा बदला तेरा ढंग

ज़रा हंस के गले से लग जा
तुझे कुंवारा प्यार बुलाये
तुझे कुंवारा प्यार बुलाये
तेरे मन पे चढ़ गया जंग
यूंही अब क्यूँ चमकाए रंग

ओ है हम भोला
ज़रा सी और पिला दो भंग
मैं आया देख के ऐसा रंग
के दिल मेरा डोला आ
ओ है हम भोला आ

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 15
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

And so, we do get to a song in Saigal Sb’s voice song in this series. Memory serving right, I would have preferred to start the series with this song. But oh well. Actually, we do have a Saigal Sb song earlier in this series. But that song – “Babul Mora, Naihar Chhooto Hi Jaaye”, is rerecorded in Jagjit Singh Chitra Singh voices.

Remembering the memorable singer KL Saigal Sb – it is 73 years today, since this Divine Voice departed from this mortal world. The singer has gone away, his voice, the sound captured in the songs recorded by him, are still alive.

The re-use film is ‘Do Raaste’ (1969) and this song is used as a backdrop in two places in the film. In both scenes, the song is being played from a 78 rpm record on an old styled gramophone. Almost the entire cast of the film gets presented in the two short clips. We see Balraj Sahni, Veena, Kamini Kaushal, Rajesh Khanna, Junior Mehmood and Jayant in the first clip. There is a lady actor sitting with Kamini Kaushal in the first part – is she Kumud Bole? Also, the baby girl with Junior Mehmood – I have seen her in other films also, but I am unable to put a name to her face. Then in the second clip, in addition to the above listed cast, we also have Prem Chopra, Bindu and Mumtaz. And yes, it is Krishnakant who gazes back at us from his perch in the portrait on the wall.

In its time, ‘Do Raaste’ was a popular hit film. Rajesh Khanna was the rising star at that time, plus the music of the film became very popular. Times were when a middle class joint family homes, were presented on screen quite realistically so. The story of the film is a typical loving family scenario, and then we have unhappiness and strife intervene – a new lady joining the household and sows the seeds of step-brotherly misunderstandings. The divide goes to extremes, before things get reformed and patched up. And then it is a joint happy family all over again.

This song appears twice in the film, once at the beginning, when everything is in a relaxed mood, and the household is the blessed ‘nyaara bangla’. And then, this song is presented again close to the end of the film, when all misunderstandings have been removed, and whole family reunites and returns once again to the ‘nyaara bangla‘.

In both the scenes, the song is being played on an old gramophone, which is manually operated. It has a big sound horn attached, as we remember from the old HMV logo. Ah, the pleasures of pure sounds from the 78 rpm records – no electronics, just a very authentic reproduction of the original sound as stored in electric impulses on the shellac. The wonders that were, without the later technologies and advancements. No creation of sound reproduction technology can even come close to the sound of a 78 rpm record playing on an HMV 102 machine – hand cranked, not even electricity to power the turntable. It continues to be a marvel of that age, which is also exemplified by another unique accomplishment – single mike recording with orchestra and multiple singers. The marvels of modern acoustic technology pale in comparison.

The song also brings back the memories of the heady days in the year 2011, going across the months of May through September. The blog was a ‘song-a-day’ platform for Saigal Sb songs. By the time we ended, we had brought on board all the Hindi/Urdu songs of Saigal Sb, which are available in public domain. The mind just cannot believe it is already more than 8 years ago that we went on that exhilarating journey. The joy of getting that done was surely a wondrous taste. But then I also think with some melancholy – that no more Saigal Sb songs are to be posted on our blog. Today’s post in this series is a device that makes us remember and revisit this miracle of nature that was – the voice of Saigal Sb. I take back my words – I would prefer to use ‘is’ instead of ‘was’. I am sure you will agree – for the voice continues to be with us. That peerless, unmatched, incomparable voice, that can only be replayed now.

Our dear Arun ji has mentioned in his previous post – “Door. . . Bahut Door” from yesterday – it was Raj Khosla’s (producer director of ‘Do Raaste’) own childhood memories that probably brought this song into the film. His father loved KL Saigal songs that would often play the records at home on an old gramophone. Those memories were relived by Raj Khosla himself, as he directed ‘Do Raaste’. Wonderful revival, wonderful renewal, wonderful memory stimulant. Thanks Raj Khosla ji, and thanks to Arun ji for bringing in this connect.

The original credits of this song are – lyrics by Kedar Sharma and music by RC Boral. Singing voice of course, is the inimitable Saigal Sb. Listen yet once again to this wondrous original voice – a benefaction of God Himself.

Blog Day : 4167 Post No. : 15341

Today’s song is from film Golden Eyes alias Secret Agent 077 – 1968. The film was made by Madan Chitra. Its director was Kamal Sharma and the music was by B N Bali aka Baldev Nath Bali. The songs were written by Shevan Rizvi. The cast included Shailesh kumar, Mumtaz, Asit Sen, Ulhas,Rajan Haksar Shaikh, Jeevan kala, Helen and a host of other actors.

This was a film which was supposed to be a detective story, with a secret agent having an ID number 077 – a la James Bond ! This film came in the wake of the wave created by one of India’s most successful Secret Agent films in Hindi, featuring the Jumping jack-Jeetendra ( with Trade mark White shoes), which was film Farz-1967. But the comparison , rather similarity ends here only, as far as film Golden Eyes is concerned.

Perhaps, our readers may be wondering as to why have I suddenly changed the track and jumped to talk about an obscure film like Golden Eyes-68 ! About a week ago, I received an E mail query from one of my old friends, inquiring if there were 2-3 artistes with the name of Sailesh, who was a singer, actor and MD ? I routinely get many such queries and I try to answer all of them promptly. In this case, I knew what the problem was. “Sailesh” was a case of ‘Same name Confusion’. I was quite amused, because in my immediate last post, I had discussed a case of SNC and now this case has come up.

I sent my detailed reply to the friend, but thought of writing a post here, so that one more SNC name will be cleared. That is the reason, I selected today’s film song, because in this film the Hero was Shailesh kumar. Yes, there were 2 artistes in Hindi films with the similar name Sailesh. One was Sailesh Mukherjee, who was an actor, singer and a MD and the other was Shailesh Kumar who was only an actor.

In case of artistes before 50’s, getting information was sometimes very difficult. At times, we had to wait for months and years till we hit upon some information source. getting in touch with a close relative of that artiste also solved the problem. But not always. I came across few cases, where even the son or the daughter of the artistes did not know much about the Film career of their father. For example, with great difficulty, I located the address of the daughter of comedian Mirza Musharraf in Mumbai. When I actually visited her, with prior appointment, for an interview, i found that she did not know much about Mirza’s film activity and that she was of no use to me. On the contrary, the daughter of actor singer Parshuram, had all the information, photos, paper cuttings etc. about her father.

In this case, I had a contact with Sailesh Mukherjee’s daughter in law, who gave me all information about what he did after leaving films and the family details. So, first here is information on Sailesh Mukherjee, which is updated with new additions on his post- film life.

Born on 3rd June 1926 in Calcutta, Sailesh Mukherjee completed his Matriculation and came to Bombay in 1946 to become a Music Director. He met Anil Biswas-also from Bengal- and got an opportunity to sing in film Milan-1946. That is how his singing started and he sang in films like Andhon ki Duniya-47 and Vanvasi-48,Aaag-48 (2 songs),Anmol Moti-49 with Shamshad,The last Message-49 with Uma Devi,
Deepak-51 with Uma Devi,Suhag Sindoor-53,Samaj-54 with Asha.
In Andolan-51 he sang ‘Vande Matharam’ with Manna Dey,Parul Ghosh and Sudha malhotra.
He last sang in Naya qadam-58.

His dream of becoming a MD was still not coming through,Finally he became a Music Director ,a joint one with Suresh kumar-in film Suhag Sindoor-1953. Even in this film,his partner made him sing 2 songs,under his baton !

Anyway, later Shailesh gave music to Parichay-54 and Savera, in 1958. While recording songs for Parichay,Shailesh played Tabla himself in all songs. In film Savera his songs became very popular. Songs like “Chhuppa chhuppi Aagad Baagad jaayi re” by Lata and Manna Dey, ” Nadiya ka pani” by Lata and “Jane na,Jane na” by Geeta were specially became hits.

Inexplicably,despite good and hit songs,he stopped getting any more films,either as a Music Director or as a singer. So Shailesh changed his gear once again and he became an Actor. First he acted in film Bandish-55 in the name of ‘Sailesh’. Then he became Hero in ” Miya bibi raazi”-1960, ” Pyar ki Pyas”-1961 and ” Monica”-1962 (UR). As a Hero he had taken a new name SHRIKANT GAURAV. The films did not click.

Music was his passion. He was a multi talented man. Later on he became an Interior Designer and prospered. In addition, he used to compere a programme in Calcutta wherein he would interview all the leading top artist of Calcutta e.g Uttam Kumar etc which was sponsored by Horlicks. He had designed Mala sinha’s bungalow too. The first recording studio at Natraj for Shakti Samanta was designed by him. He used to fly to Calcutta to interview Bengali film stars. Since he had a very good voice and a great command and knowledge about Bangla literature he would lend his voice for documentaries too. He was very passionate about nature and gardening hence he had bought 11 acres of land in Karjat. He used to have regular sessions of his songs at his farmhouse. He used to sing Madhushala with lots of passion. Rabindra Sangeet was his favorite.

Sailesh Mukherjee died somewhere in 1998.

Now let us know about the Same name Shailesh Kumar. His real name was Shambhunath Purohit. He was born on 21-3-1939 at Jodhpur, in a rich family with lot of property. He was handsome and six feet tall. Once he came to Bombay and went to see the shooting of a film. The producer director Ratibhai Punatar offered him a role in the film, but he declined. Later on he completed a course of acting in Filmalaya Acting School.

In 1960, he came to Bombay with just Rs. 75 with him. He used to sleep in the office of a Jodhpur businessman and took rounds of studios for work. Same time Dharmendra was also looking for work. They became friends. However it was Shailesh, who got the first break when he worked in film Nai Maa-1960. Then he was selected for a major role by producer director Sadashiv Row kavi, for his film ‘Bhabhi ki Chudiyan’-1961.( This was a remake of the hit Marathi film “Vahininchya bangdya” ( ?????????? ???????? )-53. A Telugu remake also was made as “Vadina Gari gajulu”-55). This film became popular in Hindi. Row kavi had made a 3 film cotract with Shailesh. The second film was Begana in 1963.

Shailesh did many films from good banners, as Hero and side Hero. he worked in 25 films, but somehow, in spite of acting in good films, with good directors and banners, his luck waned and the flow of films weakened. He managed to do some B and C grade films. His friend Dharmendra also got a break same time, but he rose very high in the industry.

After 1977, Shailesh suffered from a serious ailment of Thyroid gland and he had to take treatment in Tata Hospital. A rumour spread that he had Cancer and films stopped completely. In 1978, he returned to Jodhpur, never to return again to Bombay. He died on 21-4-2017, at the age of 78 years. He left behind him wife Pushpa and a son and a daughter. His last film was Ooperwala jaane-1977. He did 25 films+ 5 UR films.

During his career, Shailesh kumar acted along with Top class actors like Manoj kumar, Sanjiv kumar, Ashok kumar, Randhir kapoor, Balraj Sahani, Dharmendra,Sohrab Modi, Raaj kumar etc, big Heroines like Mumtaj, Rekha, Tanuja, Meena kumari etc, big directors and big banners. However all this did not help him and he remained a side actor only. His health also restricted his career. This is Luck !

Today’s song is sung by Usha Balsavar and Mahendra kapoor with chorus. The music for this film was given by composer B.N.Bali. He was one of those small time composers, who got only the B and C grade films. First of all,let us know who this B N Bali is. There was yet another composer Bali,in the early era of Hindi films. H.C.Bali or Harishchandra Bali(20-3-1906 to 24-6-1976),the expert classical singer who changed into a successful composer is credited with discovering K L Saigal in the early 30s.

B N Bali or Baldev Nath Bali too was a good singer and was a composer restricted to mostly religious or low budget films.He gave music from Bedard-1949 up to Do Dilwale-1973, a total of 24 films,including one unreleased film-Bahut Door (40s). He also gave music to a Haryanvi film in 1973.Though he composed music with a variety,somehow he lacked what it takes to make it to the Big league. On the contrary,B N Bali is known for copying the popular tunes of other composers blatantly.

‘Jab un ka khayal aata hai’-sung by Rafi in Pahla pehla pyar was a copy of Rafi’s ‘Jin raaton me neend ud jaati hai’ by Hansraj behl.
‘Sapne me saiyan tu aaya na karo’-Asha/manna Dey song was a true copy of O P Nayyar’s ‘ Ek pardesi mera dil le gaya’
‘Tu us ka kar bhala’ Rafi in Raja Vikram sang the same “Bhagwaan’ tune as in ” O duniya ke rakhwaale’ etc. etc.

With today’s song, singer Usha Balsavar makes her Debut on the Blog.

“Jung Aur Aman”(1968) was directed by Nanubhai Bhatt for Metro Movie Production, Bombay. This movie had Dara Singh, Mumtaz, Jayant, Nadira, Mohan Choti, Krishna Kumari, Rajen Haksar, Murad etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Jung Aur Aman”(1968) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by G S Kohli.

The song is picturised as a dancing under duress genre of song where Dara Singh is tied at a stake and Mumtaz has to dance to save his life. So this song is picturised under circumstances similar to “Basanti in kutton ke aage mat naachna” circumstance in “Sholay” (1975). 🙂

Blog Day : 4030 Post No. : 15149

Hullo to all in Atuldom

With today’s post/ song the concerned movie achieves “YYIIPPEEEEhood”- a word on the lines of adulthood; not found in any standard dictionary and a creation of this blog just like “atuldom” and “atulites”.

The movie debuted on the blog on 18th January, 2010 and has had a rather slow run on the blog. The movie itself was huge hit in its time with all its songs still on the minds and lips of HFM lovers. (I was a child and I am not sure if I have seen it in a movie hall but have seen it umpteen times on TV.) I am not going into the minute details about the movie and say that it was directed by Dev Anand for his home production. I will also not say that the songs were written by Anand Bakshi and R D Burman was the music director. But the minute the song is posted the reaction is going to be “yeh abhi baaki hai?!!!” This was the reaction to the previous post from this movie too. In fact, Guruji had wondered how that song had escaped from being posted all these years considering it was THE MOST POPULAR song from the movie. My answer to that query would be “so that we could have that wonderful post from you, Sirji.” And the bigger reaction will be “this movie is not yet YYIIPPEEEED!!!” That is why I say wonders don’t cease in this blog of ours.
We are revisiting “Hare Rama Hare Krishna” today. This movie had seven songs and six songs -one of them being a multi-version song- are already posted.

The details of the songs from the movie that have been covered earlier :-

S N Song Song number in blog Date of posting
1 Kaanchi re kaanchi re 2268 18-Jan-10
2 Phoolon ka taaron ka sabka kehna hai Multiple version song 2838 24-Aug-10
3 Dekho o deewaanon tum ye kaam na karo 5098 4-Dec-11
4 I love you kya khushi kya hai gham 9241 4-Jan-14
5 Dum maaro dum mit jaaye gham 14829 7-Jan-19

The reason to revisit the movie today, is to wish the romantic leading lady -Mumtaz- on her 72nd birthday. She has had a journey in Bollywood that started as child star, extra, heroines’ friend etc in A- grade movies as a teenager and heroine of stunt films with Dara Singh etc. Her first adult role was that of the hero Rajendra Kumar’s sister in “Gehra Daag”. She had to wait a long time before bursting on the top heroine slot. By the time she reached the heroine slot she had played a dancer- vamp etc in “Mere Sanam”, “Khandaan”, “Kaajal’’ etc. Possibly the first time her comic side made itself felt was as ‘Meena’ in Mehmood’s “Pyar Kiye Jaa”. Her best times started with “Boond Jo Ban Gayi Moti” where she was heroine to Jeetendra after which she paired him in movies like “Jigri Dost” “Khilona” “Ek Naari Ek Brahmachari” and some more with a guest appearance in “Humjoli”. First time she paired with Rajesh Khanna was in “Do Raaste” followed by “Bandhan” “Roti” “Aap Ki Kasam” etc. She paired opposite the Khan brothers – Feroz and Sanjay- in “Aadmi aur insaan” “Apradh” “Mela” “Dhadakan” “Upasana” etc. So, what I want to highlight here is that many male actors who were lead stars in the movies during the 60s, when Mumtaz played a nimble-footed dancer or second lead-heroine sought her in the 70s to be their main romantic lead; she played heroine to Rajendra Kumar in “Tangewala”. In her career that lasted till 1977 – “Aaina” with Rajesh Khanna was her last as a heroine when she took retirement from movies in favour of family life- she had acted with actors ranging from Dara Singh, Sunil Dutt, Sanjeev Kumar, Dharmendra, Jeetendra, Rajesh Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Feroz and Sanjay Khan. She even did a movie with Amitabh Bachchan as her hero.

Let us wish our “Kaanchi” a long and healthy life. Wish you a very happy birthday Mumu a.k.a Mumtaz.

Blog Day : 4017 Post No. : 15124

The years roll by – time stops for no one.

And, just like that, it is now 7 years since that day in 2012.

I still remember that day very well – I first got the news on Facebook.

One of my friends had posted “vaada tera vaada”, saying “RIP Rajesh Khanna”.

It shook me – I immediately checked Twitter for validation. (Now Twitter is known to post fake death news from time to time. Not so long ago, they had posted news of Mumtaz’s death – thankfully, fake.) But I wanted a second source.

Sadly, and I realized this very soon with a sinking feeling, the news on 18th July 2012 was not fake. Rajesh Khanna (or Kaka, as he was more affectionately known) HAD passed away. For the past year, he had been suffering from cancer – and the cancer had finally won.

I felt miserable that day. Not that I didn’t know he was suffering from cancer, but I never expected him to go when he did.

That day my Facebook status was
Kya samjhega ye aalam koi
Badaa bhaari hai dil ye mera
Ki le gaye ho saath safar pe tumhaare
Tukda jo kabhi tha dil ye mera

Rubbish poetry, I know – but hey, it did reflect my mood.

Those were the times when I’d seek refuge in my blog. I’d just dump my thoughts onto my blog, for my own sake. It was my way of releasing my feelings, not suppressing them within.

That day too I went to my blog, and wrote a piece for Rajesh Khanna. A personal piece – well, about as personal a piece that one can write about someone he has never met, someone whose many character flaws one acknowledges, and yet someone who was a big part of one’s childhood.

I’ve written about Kaka several times here, and I don’t want to bore readers by repeating stuff.

I’ll just say a few things, and then move on to the song.

Firstly, most times when I discuss Kaka with others (I don’t do much of this anymore), I get the following reactions.
Firstly, a criticism of his acting – mostly his set mannerisms, and his hamming.
Secondly, criticism about him as a person.

I’ve noticed that people who dislike Kaka, tend to dislike him rather intensely. 🙂 On one, or both, of the above counts.

And, I must admit, they would not be wrong.

The first point first.

Without doubt, Kaka’s acting lost its freshness after a few years – and was a big reason for his decline. His superstar success lasted only a few years. During this period, he acted in a whole lot of films. Both he, and his producers, wanted to cash in on his name. Just his name used to be enough to sell a film. Sure, the films were all successful – Kaka holds the record for maximum number of consecutive hits.

But over-exposure comes with its risks. Especially when you’re boxed into a method of acting, expected to conform to set mannerisms, and a set dialogue delivery style. Yes, they made you successful, but style wears out after a while. Kaka’s mannerisms did become an issue. That the storylines also were beginning to get thin, did not help.

Much later in his career, we got to see a different Rajesh Khanna. Not THE superstar anymore, he could afford to act differently, in different roles. Let’s not forget he got his break in films by winning an acting contest, so he couldn’t have been that bad an actor. 🙂

Now, to the second point.

Again, I have to agree. It’s no secret that Kaka allowed success to get to his head. His unprofessional, and possibly even mean, behaviour with colleagues and others, left a lot of people bitter. No doubt many would have been happy to see him go down. A point made even more stark when compared with the upcoming star, Amitabh Bachchan, who was the model professional actor, punctual and polite.

I will not defend Kaka on this front at all. Much later in life, he did realize this himself.

All I will say is, every one of us has failings. Maybe if Kaka’s success had been more gradual, he’d have been a different person. Failure teaches us much more than success – Amitabh had a string of failures before becoming a superstar.

One person’s life is often a lesson for another. Just as people can tell aspiring youngsters “Look at Amitabh – how he struggled early in his career, but his perseverance and professionalism made him a superstar”, they can also say “Look at Rajesh Khanna – how he let success get to his head at a young age, and destroyed his career and relationships”.

One can learn from both.

To me, while I accept these criticisms, I will always remember, and thank, Rajesh Khanna for giving me many wonderful memories in my childhood.

That tilt of the head, that smile, that kurta, that dialogue delivery – today people might mock all of this, but in those days, these are what millions swooned over. That “Pushpa, I hate tears” line is still one of the best-known lines in Hindi cinema.

His films of that era made me feel good when I saw them in the early 70s. Later, when I saw them again, I’d still smile at “rona kabhi nahin rona”, “yahaan wahaan saare”, “nainon mein nindiya hai”, “ye shaam mastaani” and a whole lot of other songs. They’d bring back memories of my childhood.

Like one of my best friends (in class I) would always sing “pyaar deewana hota hai” from Kati Patang. It was his favourite song. I liked it a lot too, but I’d counter him with “ye shaam mastaani”. I know it sounds silly, but these are not just songs for me – they have memories attached to them. Like the incident attached to “o mere dil ke chain” – I’ve discussed the incident here earlier.

And that’s the thing. Each person’s memories are different, and therefore connect with someone is different. And while I acknowledge all Kaka’s failings, I also want to give him back a little bit of that love that I got from watching his films during my childhood.

That’s also the reason for this post. I haven’t written for a while now, but Avinashji requested me to write a post for this occasion. I was hesitant, since I sincerely believe I’ve lost my writing ability. I even told Avinashji “I can’t write anything longer than a tweet now” :-). But he was kind enough to share with me a whole lot of Kaka songs not posted yet, so I could easily pick one.

Now to the song.

Initially I thought of posting a sad song, considering it is on Kaka’s death anniversary. But then I thought again.

What I’d like to remember most of Kaka is the joy I got from watching his films, from before his decline. I think, from up there, he’d also probably like most people to remember him for those films.

So today’s song is from one of his early films – Bandhan (1969). I remember seeing this film long ago, though I don’t remember the story now.

By the way, it is exactly 50 years since this film was released. 1969 was a milestone year for Kaka – this was the year he became a superstar with Aradhana. And Do Raaste was a huge hit too.

The song “jaana hai to jao” shows early glimpses of the superstar-to-be. One can see some of those mannerisms that would become his hallmark in the coming years. And it is always fun to see Kaka and Mumtaz together, even if this was a less-known film than their more famous films to come.

The song is in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhosle. Not surprising that Mahendra Kapoor was used, considering music is by Kalyanji-Anandji. The MK-KA combo had a huge hit with Upkar (1967), so KA were happy to use MK again. And at that time, Rajesh Khanna was “just another hero”. Kishore Kumar had not yet become his voice. In fact, in this film, even Mukesh sings a happy song for Rajesh Khanna. 🙂

I hope you like the song.

Thanks for the memories, Kaka.

Whatever the world might say about you, remember, when it comes to romance in film,

“tere hi to sar pe mohabbat ka taaj hai”.

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Arrey jaana hai to jaao
arrey jaana hai to jaao manaayenge nahin
jaana hai to jaao
manaayenge nahin
nakhre kisi ke uthhaayenge nahin
nakhre kisi ke uthhaayenge nahin

eh
aana hai to aao
bulaayenge nahin
aana hai to aao
bulaayenge nahin
kadmon pe sar ko jhhukaayenge nahin
kadmon pe sar ko jhhukaayenge nahin
hmph
aana hai to aao

dekhi hai dekhi hai dekhi
arrey dekhi hai dekhi hai
tere jaisi kitni chhoriyaan
marti hain marti hain mujhper
saare gaaon ki goriyaan

arrey budhhu hai budhhu hai bilkul
tu kya dulhan laayega
Lagta hai tu kunwaara mar jaayega
Lagta hai tu kunwaara mar jaayega
hum kahen aur kya
tera bhaiyya khada
tujhe
nazron mein uski giraayenge nahin
ha ha ha
nazron me uski giraayenge nahin

arre samjhe
jaana hai to jaao manaayenge nahin
jaana hai to jaao manaayenge nahin
nakhre kisi ke uthhaayenge nahin
nakhre kisi ke uthhaayenge nahin
jaana hai to jaao

jab raaja mahaaraaja
koi mujhe byaahne aayega
jab raaja mahaaraaja
koi mujhe byaahne aayega
seene pe seene pe tere
saanp sa lahra jaayega

arrey tu hai bandariya
hmphh
chal chal
arrey tu hai bandariya
koi madaari hi tujhko le jaayega
kas ke maarega dande
nachaayega
kas ke maarega dande
nachaayega
haa haa
akl moti teri
O naak chhoti teri
mendhki ko to munh hum lagaayenge nahin
chhi chhi
mendhki ko munh hum lagaayenge nahin
eh
jaana hai to jaao
jaana hai to jaao bulaayenge nahin
jaana hai to jaao bulaayenge nahin
kadmon pe sar ko jhhukaayenge nahin
jaa
jaana hai to jaao

अरे जाना है तो जाओ
अरे जाना है तो जाओ
मनाएंगे नहीं
जाना है तो जाओ
मनाएंगे नहीं
नखरे किसी के उठायेंगे नहीं
नखरे किसी के उठायेंगे नहीं
ये
आना है तो आओ
बुलायेंगे नहीं
आना है तो आओ
बुलायेंगे नहीं
क़दमों पे सर को झुकायेंगे नहीं
क़दमों पे सर को झुकायेंगे नहीं
हं
आना है तो आओ

देखी है देखी है देखी
अरे
देखी है देखी है
तेरे जैसी कितनी छोरियां
मरती है मरती है मुझपे
सारे गाँव की गोरियाँ
अरे बुद्धू है बुद्धू है बिलकुल
तू क्या दुल्हन लाएगा
लगता है तू कुंवारा मर जाएगा
लगता है तू कुंवारा मर जाएगा
हम कहे और क्या
तेरा भैय्या खडा
तुझे
नज़रों में उसकी गिराएंगे नहीं
हं हं हं
नज़रों में उसकी गिराएंगे नहीं

अरे समझे
जाना है तो जाओ मनाएंगे नहीं
जाना है तो जाओ
मनाएंगे नहीं
नखरे किसी के उठायेंगे नहीं
नखरे किसी के उठायेंगे नहीं
जाना है तो जाओ

जब राजा महाराजा कोई
मुझे ब्याहने आएगा
जब राजा महाराजा कोई
मुझे ब्याहने आएगा
सीने पे सीने पे तेरे
सांप सा लहरा जाएगा

अरे तू है बंदरिया
चल चल
अरे तू है बंदरिया
कोई मदारी ही तुझको ले जाएगा
कसके मारेगा डंडे
नचाएगा
कसके मारेगा डंडे
नचाएगा
हां हां
अक्ल मोटी तेरी
ओ नाक छोटी तेरी
मेढकी को तो मुंह हम लगायेंगे नहीं
छी छी
मेढकी को मुंह हम लगायेंगे नहीं
ये
जाना है तो आओ
जाना है तो आओ
बुलायेंगे नहीं
जाना है तो आओ
बुलायेंगे नहीं
क़दमों पे सर को झुकायेंगे नहीं
जा
जाना है तो जाओ
