Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. The song appears twice in the movie– once in the childhood of the hero of the movie (i.e., Deb Mukherji). His mother (Solochana) sings it when she is about to leave him with Abhi Bhattacharya and Achala Sachdev . The second time the song appears is when she has died and her son lights her funeral pyre.

Also seen in the picturisation of this song are Sulochana Latkar, Abhi Bhattacharya, Achala Sachdev, Deb Mukherji and others.

Lyrics for today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra.

(Lyrics for both the versions are same however videos are different as the song gets played on two different occasions in the movie. The second version does not have the ‘mukhda’ but ‘antaras’ are same).

Let us listen to the today’s song now and pay our tributes to Kavi Pradeep.

“Naseehat”(1967) was produced by Dara Singh (Parduman Singh and Saudagar Singh are listed as producers) and directed by Om Patwar for Deedar Movies, Bombay. The movie had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati , Mohan Choti, etc.

Memsaab, when she was active in her blogging, had done a detailed review of this movie in her characteristic inimitable style.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far. Here are their details:-

Blog post number Song Date of post Singer (s)
2226 Zara dekhiye meri saadgi 9 December 2009 Mahendra Kapoor
5305 Kabhi hamaari muhabbat ka imtihaan na lo 16 January 2012 Asha Bhonsle
13739 Mujhko deewaana na kar 18 November 2017 Asha Bhonsle
16771 Aankhon se ishaara karke hamen 16 January 2022 Asha Bhonsle
16798 Teri aankhon ne in aankhon se jo baat kahi 28 January 2022 Asha Bhonsle, Kamal Barot, Mahendra Kapoor

Seeing that O P Nayyar was the music director, he had composed some listing music. He tended to have one male singer and one female singer who would sing for all the characters of the movie. The female singer of the movie, namely Asha Bhonsle, is thus used to give playback to the heroine REajshree (south) is three songs. In one song, she gives playback to Helen. In another song, (where Kamal Barot is another female singer), Asha Bhonsle gives playback to Helen clone, namely Madhumati.

If Asha Bhonsle was the female playback singer of choice for O P Nayyar, Rafi was his male playback singer of choice. But those days he had a falling off with Rafi, so he was forced to use another voice, namely Mahendra Kapoor for his male playback singing. This movie is one such movie.

Here is thew sixth and final song of “Naseehat”(1967) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is of course by O P Nayyar.

Mahendra Kapoor had three songs in this movie. He had given playback for three different actors in these three songs.

In the song under discussion, Mahendra Kapoor givbes playback for Mohan Choti, who is seen wooing a lady whom I am unable to identify. This song appears to be part of comic side plot where another comedian pair are likewise seen running around trees in the recommended way of carrying out romance in Hindi movies of those days.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

With this song, all the songs of “Naseehat”(1967) have been covered in the blog and the movie thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Ya ke tum pe meri jaan shabaab aa gaya (Naseehat)(1967) Singer-Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-S H Bihari, MD-O P Nayyar

‘Naseehat’ (1967) was produced by Dara Singh (though Parduman Singh and Saudagar Singh are listed as producers) and directed by Om Patwar for Deedar Movies, Bombay. The movie had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati and others.

The movie had six songs in it. Four songs have been covered in the past.

Today (28 January 2022) is the 17th remembrance day of OP Nayyar (16 January 1926 – 28 January 2007). On this occasion here is a song from “Naseehat”(1967).

The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Kamal Barot and Mahendra Kapoor. SH Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by OP Nayyar.

The song is picturised as a dance song aboard a cruise liner. The music begins as a Beatles type western tune on guitar, but it soon gets converted into an arch-typical OP Nayyar punjabi bhangda dance music. The female dancers could be Helen or even her clone Madumati (both figure in the star cast). Male dancer could be Randhawa. I am not sure So I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the dancers and others seen in the picturisation.

[Ed Note: As dear Prakash ji confirms, the lead dancers are Madhumati and Sheila Ramchandra, and two of the supporting dancers are Manjula and late Saroj Khan.]

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 8
————————————————————————————–

Today 16th January’2022 is the ninetysixth birth anniversary (16.01.1926 – 28.01.2007) of Omkar Prasad Nayyar whom we know by the name of O.P. Nayyar.

His name and music need no introduction. He was the ‘legend’ and has given us many songs to listen and cherish forever. He crafted a special place for his music in the annals of HFM and his music will be loved till it lives on this planet.

I am big fan of OPN’s music and thought that I was aware of all his movies where he composed music for. So, when I got this mail from our dear Prakash ji containing a song from the movie ‘Naseehat-1967’ I was surprised as the name of the movie didn’t ring any song in my mind. I feel very awkward or rather shameful of myself that I was not aware of this movie and its songs.

Well, so I decided to present this song from the movie ‘Naseehat-1967’, and that way I can listen the other songs of this movie too.

This movie made its debut on the blog on 09.12.2009 with its song ‘Zaraa dekhiye meri saadgi’ and after that only two songs from this movie have been added on the blog so far. One on 16.01.2012 and one on 18.11.2017.

Today after ten years of 16.01.2012 the movie becomes eligible for one of its songs under the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge – 2012-2022’. (Incidentally one more movie where music is composed by O.P. Nayyar is eligible today under BTYC as its’ songs were presented on 16.01.2012 and this movie is yet to be Yippeeee’ed. This movie is ‘Kalpana-1960).

Let us see the list of movies represented on the blog ten years back on 16.01.2012.

Here is the list.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Mujhe tumse muhabbat hai/a> Shahnaaz (1948) 6 songs posted
Beqasi hadd se jab guzar jaaye/a> Kalpana (1960) 5 songs posted

Kabhi hamaari muhabbat ka imtihaan na lo Naseehat(1967) 3 of 6 songs posted/td>
Muhabbat ho gayee jinse Kahin Din Kahin Raat(1968) All Songs covered

As mentioned above today we listen to a song from ‘Naseehat-1967’.

This movie was produced by Dara Singh (as mentioned by Atul ji in one of earlier posts).

‘Nasihat’ or ‘Naseehat-1967’ was directed by Om Patwar for ‘Deedar Movies, Bombay’.
It had Darasingh, Rajshree (South), Randhawa, Savita, Madan Puri, Tiwari, Sapru, Rajan Haksar, Bhagwan Sinha, Leela Mishra, Kundan, Rajan Kapoor, Samson, Uma Dutt, Keshav, Rinku, Meena, Saudagar Singh, Helen, Madhumati and others.

This movie had seven soundtracks including one music track and that left us with six songs which are listed below.

Four songs out of six were written by S.H. Bihari (1,2,4 & 5 from the below list) and two songs were written by Aziz Kashmiri (3 & 6 in the below list)

As mentioned above music for this film was composed by O.P. Nayyar.

Blog Day :

Today’s song is from the 1969 movie ‘Sambandh’. I was aware of this ‘title’ since my childhood and I mainly associated this movie with its song ‘Chal Akelaa Chal Akelaa Chal Akelaa, Tera Mela Peechhe Chhoota Raahi Chal Akelaa’. I have a big nostalgia of this song, and whenever I listen to it the song takes me to a different world altogether. This song brings back many memories of childhood for me.

Somehow, I didn’t get to watch this movie for many years, and later on when I started my music collection (1986-1988), I got to listen to another song from this movie i.e., ‘Andhere Mein Jo Baithhe Hain, Nazar Un Par Bhi Kuchh Daalo’ which I got in a compilation ‘Hits of Mahendra Kapoor’.

Then I came across one more song from this movie, this time sung by Hemant Kumar – ‘Apni Maata Ke Dulaare Bachche’ I like them all. And since the songs were penned by Kavi Pradeep my attraction towards this movie only increased further.

Secondly the music for this movie was composed by OP Nayyar Saab. And none of the songs composed by him for this movie sound like his characteristic music. That created a mystical ‘aura’ about this movie around me and that is still there (even I watched it once now I want to watch it more).

Then I became aware of one more song from this movie which was sung by Asha Bhonsle ‘Akeli Hoon Main Piya Aa’…

Years passed, and I carried the memory of the above songs. When I become associated with this blog, I was still interested to know about this movie and its songs. But it was only recently when for the ‘blog ten-year challenge’ our dear Prakash ji sent all the remaining songs from this movie that were still to be posted.

He sent us remaining four songs. Before that one more song ‘Tum Ko To Karodon Saal Huye Batlaao Gagan Gambhir’ got posted on the blog. Around the same time, I was browsing the HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970) for the movies of 1969. Obviously, this movie ‘Sambandh’ features in that list too.

Finally I decided to watch this movie online. I liked the movie very much, but the print available online is not of a good quality both for the picture and the sound. Also, some parts and songs seemed to be edited from the available version of this movie.

Coming to today’s song from this movie, I can write something about it now as I have watched this movie. The song happens when Deb Mukherjee has lost his mother Sulochana. Deb had to perform his mother’s last rites without his father. He is aware that Pradeep Kumar is his father. But Pradeep Kumar is not aware that Deb Mukherji is his own son. Grief stricken Deb Mukherjee sings this song on the stage where Pradeep Kumar is also present. As Deb Mukherjee could not control his emotions while performing this song and stops singing, Pradeep Kumar who was listening in the spectator’s gallery come to the stage and sings a song consoling Deb Mukherjee. This second song is the song ‘Apni Maata Ke Dulaare Bachche’, or ‘Ab To Is Desh Ki Maati Hi Teri Maata Hai’.

The first song (or the first part) is the song we are going to listen to today. It is sung by Mahendra Kapoor.

Today also happens to be the eighty-eighth birth anniversary of Mahendra Kapoor (09.01.1934 – 27.09.2008), so this song also serves as a tribute to him.

Also seen in the picturisation of this song are Abhi Bhattacharya, Achala Sachdev, Nana Palsikar, Anjana Mumtaz, Vijaya Choudhury, Milon Mukerji, Sulochana Latkar, Ulhas and others.

Lyrics for today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Let’s take a look on the list of songs of this movie and their status on the blog, as given below. We will further discuss about the movie in the concluding posts for the songs of this movie. For now I am skipping those details.

kisi se ab mera rishtaa na koyi naataa hai ae ae aen ae

achcha hotaa jo main bhi mar jaataa

aei meri maut bulaa ley mujhko
aaj baahon mein uthhaa ley mujhko

O P Nayyar was an odd man out in Hindi film industry as a music director. He did not have the formal or informal training in the music. He did not undergo ‘apprenticeship’ under any music directors. He did not work with Lata Mangeshkar during his entire career as a music director. The top three star-actors of 1950s and 60s – Dilip Kumar, Dev Anand and Raj Kapoor avoided him as a music director after working with him for one or two films. He did not work with Raj Khosla after his spate with him in ‘Ek Musaafir Ek Haseena’ (1962). His egoistic, stubborn, ‘calling spade a spade’ type of nature and some shades of eccentricities should have made him persona non grata in the Hindi film industry. Despite all these odds, he attained the status of one of the top music directors of Hindi films during 1950s and 1960s.

I always felt that O P Nayyar was the ‘Eklavya’ of Hindi film music – a self-trained music director who got inspirations from more than one Dronachaya of music directors – R C Boral, Pankaj Mullick, Ghulam Haider and Anil Biswas. As a teenager, O P Nayyar was fascinated by the films of New Theatres which he watched in Lahore. He was mesmerised by the songs of K L Saigal and Pankaj Mullick which guided him to pursue the singing career. He was a regular singer of bhajans and ghazals on AIR, Lahore in the 1940s until the partition. Two of his Kabir dohas which he used to recite on AIR. Lahore were recorded and released on HMV disc in 1943. He composed his first recorded song – a non-film, ‘preetam aan milo’ in the voice of C H Atma in 1945 which became very popular.

After shifting to Mumbai following the partition, O P Nayyar’s first three films – ‘Aasmaan’ (1952), ‘Cham Chama Cham’ (1952) and ‘Baaz’ (1953) turned out to be the flop films. It was only after a huge box office success of ‘Aar Paar’ (1954) that O P Nayyar established himself as music director and remained one of the top music directors of Hindi films until about end-1960s.

O P Nayyar achieved his musical career progression despite the handicap of his stubbornness and other traits. The same handicap also resulted in his downfall. In 1966, he had a spate with Mohammed Rafi during one of the songs recording of ‘Saawan Ki Ghata’ (1966) after which he did not work with Rafi for a long time. In 1974, Asha Bhosle, his muse of over 15 years, decided to part with him in what appears to be the clash of egos. By this time, Asha Bhosle had also become a force to reckon with in Hindi film music.

O P Nayyar’s musical journey virtually ended by mid-1970 though he did a few sporadic films until 1995. He spent rest of his life in isolation away from film industry and his family until his death in January 2007.

The question that may come to the minds of many Hindi film music enthusiasts as to how O P Nayyar could churn out many beautifully crafted songs based on Hindustani classical raags. In this context, it is worth mentioning the observations of Ustad Ameer Khan when he heard all the 11 songs of ‘Phaagun’ (1958). When O P Nayyar met Ustad Ameer Khan in some context, the latter asked him as to why he had composed all the 11 songs in Raag Pilu. O P Nayyar had no answers except to tell him it was just a coincidence that his compositions matched with Raag Pilu. Incidentally, Ustad Ameer Khan rendered for O P Nayyar, a bandish, jogiya mere ghar aaye in raag Lalit in ‘Raagini’ (1958). In the later years, Ustad Ameer Khan pointed out to him that in akeli hoon main piya aaa from ‘Sambandh’ (1969), he has used about 16 different raagas. Probably, music composition was God’s gift to O P Nayyar.

O P Nayyar has composed many raag-based songs, some of which are semi-classical compositions in the films like ‘Aasmaan’ (1952), ‘Naya Daur’ (1957), ‘Raagini’ (1958), ‘Phaagun’ (1959), ‘Kalpana’ (1960), ‘Phir Wohi Dil Laaya Hoon’ (1963) etc. Almost all of his semi-classical songs have been covered on the Blog. But there is one semi-classical song which did not get as much attention from the Hindi film music lovers as it deserved. The song is from an obscure film ‘Qaidi’ (1957) which is yet to be covered on the Blog.

‘Qaidi (1957) was produced by F C Mehra under his banner, Eagle Films and was directed by Mohammed Hussain. The star cast included Padmini, Suresh, Anwar Hussain, Helen, Agha, Ragini, Leela, Johny Walker, M Kumar, Kamal Mehra, Rajan Kapoor etc. It was a ‘B’ grade action-oriented film. The film was released in January 1957.

The film had 8 songs of which 6 songs have been covered on the Blog. All the songs were written by Jaan Nisaar Akhtar which were set to music by O P Nayyar. I am presenting the 7th song, ‘bedardi preet nahi jaani’ which is a semi-classical song rendered by Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar. The video clip of the song is not available on any of the video sharing platforms. There is one audio clip which is available with an average sound quality. I have, therefore, made a new video clip from a mp3 clip of the song with me in a better sound quality and have uploaded the same.

From the lyrics as well as taraanas, the song appears to be picturised on two dancers. From the star cast, there are 4 dancers in the film – Padmini, Ragini, Helen and Leela. From the available video clips of the songs, it is observed that Asha Bhosle has sung both for Padmini and Helen in the film. In addition, Shamshad Begum has also sung for Padmini. If the song is used for the dance competition, it is quite likely that the dancers could be Padmini and Ragini as both are trained Bharatnatyam dancers and in the film, Ragini plays the role of Padmini’s friend.

I am not able to tell on which Raag the song has been composed. However, the tune closely resembles that of ae ri jaane na doongi from ‘Chitralekha’ (1964) which, according to Swarganga, is based on Raag Kamod.

Note: In this article, I have taken some inputs from an interview of O P Nayyar which appeared on http://www.cinemasangeet.com. and also from an article on O P Nayyar which was published in millenniumpost.

Hullo Atuldom

“Khoon Ka Badla Khoon” (1978) had songs by the hit team of S.H. Bihari- O.P.Nayyar; the team that gave us “kajra mohabbatwala”, “haule haule chalo more saajna”, taarif karoon kya uski”, “bahut shukriya badi meherbaani” and many more such hits in the ’60s.

“KKBK” had Vani Jairam, Pushpa Pagdhare, Uttara Kelkar, Mohd. Rafi for playback singers. It was directed by K. Parvez a.k.a Kalpataru and produced by Ratan Mohan. It had seven or eight songs of which the blog has only one song.

The cast included Bindu, Asha Sachdev, Mahendra Sandhu, Vinod Khanna, Ajit, Jayshree T., Padma Khanna, Iftekar, Imtiaz Khan, Sudhir etc. Seeing that the movie had so many actresses who could dance, makes it clear why OPN used three different female playback singers.

“KKBK” seems to be one of the movies where Asha Sachdev must have been the main female protagonist or to put it simple -the heroine. Also the poster of the movie suggests that Vinod Khanna may have been paired with Bindu
Here is the next song from ‘KKBK’ on the occasion of Omkar Prasad Nayyar’s 14th remembrance day. It is sung by Vani Jairam. It was and is frequently heard on radio. Vani Jairam had four solos in the movie of which this is the most popular. I found a very short video which suggests that Asha Sachdev is out to woo Mahedra Sandhu who seems to be some kind of under-cover officer. Also the video shows Ajit giving instructions to his ‘No 9’ etc as was the norm in all movies featuring Ajit in that period of time.

The poster that is accompanying the longer version of the song, as is available on youtube shows a rather smart and handsome Vinod Khanna, trying to shoot some one even as he is on the run.
The brief synopsis of the film that is available on IMDB.com says this: The story-line of the film revolves around a Crime Branch’s Officer and a courageous girl from another agency, they are appointed to catch a criminal gang who leaves a trade mark at their every crime scene.

So, that means it was a run-of-the-mill masala thriller that should have been entertaining for the masses. I would love to know how it fared at the box-office.
This is song number 184 of S.H. Bihari and 484 of O P Nayyar who should be thanked for the legacy that is there for us to enjoy

Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II) – Song No. 19

29/09/2020 – 88th birth anniversary of Mehmood
—————————————————————
Mehmood Ali (29 September 1932 – 23 July 2004), popularly known simply as Mehmood, was an Indian actor, writer, singer, director and producer best known for playing comic roles in Hindi films. Today we are celebrating his 88th birth anniversary. Only other person I can think of with so many talents is Kishore Kumar. Even that I am not sure if, Kishore Kumar ever wrote any film stories though he is credited as a song writer, I think.

A veteran of 300 films, he can be called India’s national comedian, some may differ. But to differ is everyone’s not so basic right. The premise for calling him the national comedian are many, one of them could be this fact that he has 25 filmfare nominations. That amounts to at least one nomination every year from 1954 onwards. It is not so straight forward. As per information given on Wikipedia, the award for Best performance in a comic role started only in 1967. So Mehmood was nominated for Best supporting actor 6 times between 1954 and 1966. Rest of the nineteen nominations could be in continuation up to 1985. By late 70’s Mehmood significance as a comedien or a need for a comedien in films had diminished. From late 70’s the comic character as well as a Vamp/dancer character were diminishing, as the heroes and heroine’s usurped them. For a while there, a thought struck that, if they could they would have done away with playback singers too, if they could. Than playback singers also would have been out of the work force as well with the defunct comic actor and dancer/vamp starlets. Fanciful thoughts these.

If the ‘Best performance in a comic role’ is initiated as late as 1967, many like Agha, Bhagwan and Johnny Walker missed out on them. In the 90’s we did see, some heroes nominated for “Best performance in a Negative role”, “ Best performance in a comic role” etc.

Back to Mehmood who started his career as a child artist, in “Qismat” 1943. He produced a number of films, story of some of them like ‘Ek baap chhe bête”,’Bhoot Bangla” “Safed ghoda kaala sawaar” & “ Janta Hawaldar”. So this was a talented and multi-faceted personalty. Many memorable character and comedy with a twist of tragedy roles assessed by Mehmood are too many to list. The youngest brother of ‘Beti-Bete”, the international faqeer in ‘Aankhen”, the kabaadiwala son in law in ‘Neel Kamal”, to the madrasi music teacher in “Padosan”, to the recalcitrant son to Om Prakash who has a passion for filmmaking in “Pyaar kiye jaa”, and the kaala, dilwala in “Gumnaam”. The difference from other comic actors and Mehmood is the versatility of his talents, and he was usually accompanied by a love interest in the films. There was a parallel story going on with these comic actors, side by side with the main story. Even in the not so run of the mill films, this was a regular thing. And songs to sing is a foregone conclusion, romantic or comic.

After a few lack luster recent post, I have made some special efforts here in this posts, to make some observations of my own. It may be the 50’s Rafi song, which brings this out of me. I had begun to feel jaded and incinerated, with so many 80’s and 90’s , even 70’s songs I have written the posts for recently.

It feels good to go back to the 50’s. The song in question is from “Mr. Qartoon MA”(1958). Rafi Sahab is singing here for both Mehmood and Johnny Walker. Johny Walker and Mehmood are disguised as sadhu’s and singing this song on the street, in front of their love interest’s hostel or house. The song is special for being a comic song, roadside tamasha song, sadhu’s song, disguise song etc etc. The music director for this film O. P. Nayyar and surprisingly lyricist is Hasrat Jaipuri, on his rare picnic outside the Shankar-Jaikshan. Not that anyone is complaining, if it gives us songs like ‘Tere Ghar Ke saamne” when Hasrat Jaipuri ventured out of the foursome fold.

I have had the fortune of posting a few O. P. Nayyar songs in the distant past, but before this post cannot recall any songs written by Hasrat Jaipuri, for which I have written a post. Also the posts for Shankar-Jaikishan songs, are rare ones for me.

The audio and film version are slightly different in this song. Audio is shorter than the film version and a line in the mukhda which is repeated is changed as “ab hari om”.

These four songs from this film are already posted in the blog:

Chanda chaley jhoom ke baadarwa ko choom ke
Dil tera deewaana o mastaani bulbul
Main main main main cartoon Multiple part song
Mera dil ghabraaye meri aankh sharmaaye

This is song no. 19 in series of Mohammed Rafi: The incomparable (II), also a tribute for Mehmood. I don’t want to repeat my earlier requests for having a separate category tag for ‘Mehmood” song. I see that there is one such tag for Johny walker song. The is a need for ‘Agha song” also for that matter. Many all-time classic songs are sung onscreen by these comic actors.

main pheroon teri maalaa

o main pheroon teri maalaa

o tera sar hai meraa home
o zara sun le itni bomb

teraa naam sunaa to devi
England se paidal aaya
O teraa naam sunaa to devi
England se paidal aaya
O main to ghoom ke aaya Rome
O tere pyaar ki sun kar dhoom
chal karle hom

tu ne maar ke pyaar ki bomb
o mere dil ko kar diyaa mom

uyi maa

aa aa aa
o bhagwaan
sune na koi shaitaan
