Mukesh and his Composers – 17
———————————-

We have discussed the songs sung by Mukesh for Aparesh Lahiri and his son Bappi Lahiri in the last two successive posts. Incidentally these two posts were on the birth and death anniversary dates of Mukesh.
Much earlier in the series, we have also discussed about Mukesh songs for S D Burman and R D Burman. Well, no prizes for guessing where we are heading with these discussions. Yes, the father-son associations that Mukesh had in his singing career and the name that came immediately to my mind was that of Rajesh Roshan. It appears that Mukesh’s association with father-son composers is restricted to the three duos discussed above. I found it prudent to have this short table of the details before we head to the composer of this post Rajesh Roshan.

S No Father-Son composer Number of songs by Mukesh
1 S D Burman 12
R D Burman 15
2 Aparesh Lahiri 1
Bappi Lahiri 2
3 Roshan 36
Rajesh Roshan 3

It is pointless, for obvious reasons to discuss the above table in totality, but we cannot help noticing that Roshan songs for Mukesh are more than all the other 5 composers put together.

In the above table, all songs of all composers are represented on the blog except one under Rajesh Roshan which is being introduced with this post. And, one song under R D Burman from Naukri (1978) is yet to be represented.

R D Burman started his composing career in 1961 and took Mukesh onboard only in 1965. Thereafter he had 14 more songs by Mukesh all in the 70”s and with quite a number of them being hits. To reiterate he composed 15 songs for Mukesh as against 12 by his father who had first composed for Mukesh way back in 1948.

Coming to the today’s post, Rajesh Roshan began his composing career only in 1974 and started with a bang with Kishore Kumar in Kunwaara Baap and Julie in 74 and 75 respectively. 76 was the year in which Mukesh passed away and we have only 3 songs that Mukesh sang for Rajesh Roshan and two of the movies were released after Mukesh had left this world.

Below is table of the short list of 3 songs with all the details. Needless to say, all 3 songs were famous and in particular the one from Tumhaari Kasam remains active in public memory to this day.

S.No Name of song Movie (Year of release) Co-singer if any Lyricist
1 Pari re tu kahaan ki pari Udhaar ka Sindoor (1976) Asha Bhosle Majrooh Sultanpuri
2 O maiya mori main mahin makhan Charandas (1977) Rajinder Krishan
3 Hum dono milke kaaghaz pe dilke Tumhaari Kasam (1978) Asha Bhosle Anand Bakshi

Tumhaari Kasam had Jeetrendra in the lead role, but the duet sung by Mukesh with Asha Bhosle was featured on Navin Nischol. The film was released two years after Mukesh passed away and yet it’s the only notable feature left of the film today. The tune is quite catchy and is a personal favourite of mine.

Charandas was released in 1977 and it makes a debut on the blog with this last of the 3 songs of Mukesh sung for Rajesh Roshan. The song is sung on screen by Om Prakash who seems to be the protagonist in the film.
Shri Harish Raghuwanshi ji helped me with the confirmation of both the tables and I am ever grateful to him.

Blog Day : 3469 Post No. : 13927

Today (16 january 2018) is the 92nd birth anniversary of O P Nayyar (16 january 1926- 28 january 2007).

Instead of discussing his biography and discussing his well known songs, I have decided to pay my tribute to the legendary music director by presenting his full filmography for Hindi movies here.

In summary, O P Nayyar composed music for 73 Hindi movies from 1952 to 1995. He composed 569 songs in these movies. The blog has 462 songs from these movies. 69 out of 73 movies are represented in the blog. Out of these movies represented in the blog, 47 movies are already YIPPEED. So we now have to look for just the remaining 26 movies to look for the balance 107 songs. We are very much in the last lap as far as covering all available O P Nayyar songs in the blog is concerned.

Here is the movie wise breakup:

Not all of the remaining songs are available. Some of these balance songs may have been lost for ever. For instance, the one remaining song from “Shrimati 420” (1956) viz-“tum to hamre man mein bhagwan ban ke base ho” was only there on the movie and its record was not issued. The movie prints are not available, so this remaining song will remain unavailable and as such this movie will remain un YIPPEED.

Yesterday, we discussed a song from “China Town”(1962). It turns out that there was a movie called “Hongkong” (1962) as well in the same year. “Hongkong” (1962) had music by O P Nayyar. This movie was directed by Paachhi for Paachi Productions, Bombay. This movie had Ashok Kumar, B Saroja Devi, K N Singh, Helen, Bhalla, Babu Rao, Kitty, King, Doctor, Balram, Kundan, Om Prakash etc in it.

This movie had nine songs in it. Seven songs from the movie have been discussed in the blog in the past.

This eighth song from “Hongkong” (1962) begins as a “teasing” song, where Om Prakash tries to play a roadside Romeo, but Helen, the target of Om Prakash’s attentions decides that attack is the best form of defence and boos him heartily. 🙂

The lyrics are quite amusing. The movie had four lyricists (Raja Mehdi ali Khan, Qamar Jalalabadi, Shewan Rizvi and S H Bihari), but sadly the lyricist of this song is not known. The lyricist has let his hair down in this song. He must have enjoyed penning this light hearted song. 🙂 The song is quite long. It has video as well as as audio versions and the lyrics differ in some stanzas. I have provided lyrics and links of both the versions.

Music is of course O P Nayyar, and it would appear that he too must have enjoyed composing this song. the song is sung by his favourite playback singing pair of Rafi and Asha Bhonsle.

tumhari adao pe ae husnwaalon
haan aan aan aan aan
haaye
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husnwaalon
agar ham na marte
to phir kaun marta
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husnwaalon
agar ham na marte to phir kaun marta

nahin tumsa koi
agar ham na kehte
to ye naaz o andaaz rakkhe hi rehte
na itraao itna tum is baankpan par
nazar lag na jaaye
chalo yoon na tan kar

sharaarat se mud mud ke kya dekhte ho
hamen ya ke apni ada dekhte ho
ham hi jab na honge to phir kya karoge
har ik baat per kis se akda karoge
kise dekh kar sharm aaya karegi
haya kis se munh ko chhupaaya karegi
ye chutki se dil kiska masla karoge
hamen yaad kar kar ke machla karoge
mohabbat ki baaton pe itna na bigdo
zara haath seene pe rakhkar ye keh do
aa aa aa aa aa aa
haaye
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husn waalon
agar ham na marte to phir kaun marta
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husn waalon
agar ham na marte to phir kaun marta

ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
haaye ae ae ae ae
ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta aa
arre ham na hota to tum kispe marta
ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
arre ham na hota to tum kispe marta

ke soorat se dilbar ho aur dil se patthar
khari baat keh di to bigde huye ho
angoothhe ko daanton se pakde huye ho
zara paas aao
mulaaqaat kar len
agar hans ke dekho to ik baat kar len
aa aa aa aa aa
haaye
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husn waalon
agar ham na marte to phir kaun marta
tumhaari adaaon pe ae husn waalon
agar ham na marte to phir kaun marta

ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
are ham na hota to tum kispe marta
ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
are ham na hota to tum kispe marta

koi romeo koi farhaad dekha
jise dekha majnu ka ustaad dekha
liye phirte ho ishq ki chot dil mein
nazar mein safai to hai khot dil mein
tumhen har qadam pe ye hota hai dhokha
jo dekhega tumko
wahi mar mitega
zara dekh le
ham to kuchh aur samjhe
chalo peechhe peechhe
nateeja na socho
bina jaan pehchaan ke baat karna
bahaane banaa kar mukaaqaat karna
bahut khoobsoorat samajhte ho khud ko
zara aaina le ke soorat to dekho
muhabbat haseenon se karne chale hain
koi inko dekho ye marne chale hain

aa aa aa aa
ye tum husn waalon se kya baat karta
arre ham na hota to tum kis pe marta
ye tum husn waalon se kya baat karta
arre ham na hota to tum kis pe marta

tumhaari adaaon pe ae husn waalon
agar ham na marte
to phir kaun marta

karo ladkiyon se na baaten akadkar

hamen dekhte hi chahakne lage ho
hawa lag gayi hai
bahakne lage ho

ye fashion ye makeup
ye tie ye collar
tumhaare to nakhre hain hamse bhi badh kar
do roza jawaani pe phoole huye ho
tum apne budhaape ko bhoole huye ho
hamen dekhte ho nigaahen bachaa kar
sharaafat dikhaate ho nazren jhukaa kar
ho tum kitne chaalaak ham jaante hain
tumhaari nigaahon ko pehchaante hain
chalo tum pe chhodaa tumhi faisla do
ke tum ache bure ho magar ye bata do
aa aa aa
ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
are ham na hota to tum kispe marta
ye tum husnwaalon se kya baat karta
are ham na hota to tum kispe marta

hawaaon mein julfon ko lehraate niklo
chalaate huye teer bal khaate niklo
idhar dekhte ho udhar dekhte ho
giraate ho bijli jidhar dekhte ho

ye lip stick se honthon ko shola banaa kar
kahaan chal diye aag dil mein laga kar
anokha design hai ye sandlon ka
yahi shape hai bas hamaare dilon ka
haseen naazneen ho magar ho sitamgar
ke soorat se dilbar ho aur dil ke patthar
khari baat keh di to bigde huye ho
angoothe ko daanton se pakde huye ho
zara paas aao mulaakaat kar len
agar hans ke dekho to ik baat kar len

Just five days ago, I’d written a post here paying tribute to one of the most loved legends of the Hindi film industry, Mohammad Rafi, on his birth anniversary. Referred to by many (including me) as Rafisaab, he was a giant in his field. Yet  he remained humble to his last day, never letting success get to his head. He treated everyone with great respect and, in turn, earned the respect of everyone he interacted with.

Today we pay tribute to another legend of the industry on his birth anniversary. Also a superstar in his own right, albeit for a relatively short period of time, he was possibly the best antithesis of Rafisaab in terms of letting success get to his head, treating everyone with great respect, and in turn, earning respect of everyone he interacted with. Thus his career, and his life, turned out to be very different from Rafisaab’s. Everyone goes through ups and downs in his career – and both this person and Rafisaab are not exceptions to this phenomenon.

Yet, even in his “downs”, there were those who stood by Rafisaab. The goodwill he had earned earlier stood him in good stead. On the other hand though, this other legendary person was not so lucky. His airs and rather dismissive (to use the most charitable term I can think of) treatment of others during his heyday, came back to haunt him when he was on his way down.  He hadn’t built enough goodwill, his relationships were damaged – this only hastened his downfall. Although he made a somewhat modest recovery later, and even admitted to his earlier mistakes, his image as an arrogant, even mean and vindictive, person stayed till his last day.

This world can be so unforgiving.

By now, I’m sure everyone knows who I am talking about. The one-time superstar of Hindi cinema, the one who at one time could deliver a superhit even if the main character in his film was an elephant, the one whose mere smile and slight shake of the head had audiences in a swoon, the one who set off a rage of buttoned-up silk kurtas as a fashion trend – yes, I am talking about Rajesh Khanna.

He would have been 75 today if he’d been alive. But he didn’t live to even see 70 – he died in 2012, when still just 69. Although he’d been ailing for a while, news of his death still shocked me – I wrote a blogpost on the occasion on my blog, in tribute to him.

See, here’s the thing. I don’t, for one moment, defend Rajesh Khanna for all his wrongdoings, his arrogance, any charges that anyone might level against him. If true, he must rightly be called out for them.  So  if anyone is trying to troll me by pointing out his failings (this happens sometimes) and expecting me to defend Rajesh Khanna, it won’t work – I will probably wholeheartedly agree with them. I am not living in denial about his misdeeds.

Yet, I can also not deny that Rajesh Khanna’s films provided me with a lot of entertainment and fun in my childhood days, of which I still have very fond memories. It just so happened that his superstar days coincided almost exactly with the time that I was watching Hindi films as a young boy. I have a sort of attachment towards him that is hard to explain –  considering everything else. It of course need not have been so. Atul too is of my era – and he has no such attachment.  Fair enough. I happen to have it – and even now, I sometimes watch videos of Rajesh Khanna songs of that 1969-1973 period, and get transported to that period.

I distinctly remember watching him then in songs like “Gussa Itna Haseen Hai  To Pyar Kaisa Hoga” (‘Maryada’), “Yahaan Wahaan Saare Jahaan Mein Tera Raaj Hai” (‘Aan Milo Sajna’), “Ye Jo Mohabbat Hai”, “Ye Shaam Mastaani”, and “Pyaar Deewaana Hota Hai” (all three from ‘Kati Patang’ – one of my favourite films at the time),  “Rona Kabhi Nahin Rona” (‘Apna Desh’), “Vaada Tera Vaada” (‘Dushman’), “O Mere Dil Ke Chain” (‘Mere Jeevan Saathi’)  and many more songs – and enjoying these songs and his mannerisms a lot.

I was very young then – and initially thought he was singing these songs himself. 🙂 When I was told he was only the actor in front of the camera and that someone else (in this case, Kishore Kumar) was the singer, I remember being a bit disappointed. But that did not take away from the enjoyment of the songs, or his mannerisms, or the films. Later on, when his mannerisms became forced and began to jar, the long hair (which was a fashion at the time)  made him look less appealing to me, and the quality of films too began dropping, the charm wore off, not only for India’s masses, but also for me. (After all, I also belonged to those masses).

But for the memories of those few early years, I have always had a soft corner for Rajesh Khanna. That sideways tilt of the head, that dialogue delivery (check out the dialogue just before the song “Daanton Taley Dabaa Kar Honth” from ‘Doli’ – the video is available on YouTube – and you will know what I mean). These are the memories of him I always keep with me. I have not watched many of his later films – maybe because I want to keep his 1969-73 image in my mind and not  a 1985 one. Having said that, I’ve heard that some of his 1980s films are worth a watch – so I think I will give them a try.

So, to summarise, yes, Rajesh Khanna had a lot of faults – more than probably any other actor. But he also had a meteoric rise that no other actor had – and , while he need not have let success get to his head – he was also only human. Sometimes maybe you do need extremes to make a point.

Maybe it is examples like Rafisaab (or probably for a more modern generation, Rahul Dravid) and Rajesh Khanna that can be held up for youngsters. When you achieve success, make sure you don’t lose your head. Make sure you follow the Rafisaab (or Dravid) example, not the Rajesh Khanna one. I don’t think Rajesh Khanna himself would mind this. Much later in life, he did realize his mistakes – and warned other youngsters not to fall prey to their own success. A lesson learnt the hard way.

Coming to the song for today. As always with Rajesh Khanna songs, I prefer to roll back the years and  go back to the Rajesh Khanna of 1969-73. The film si ‘Joru Ka Ghulaam’ (1972) – one of the films I distinctly remember from my childhood days. It is not one of Rajesh’s biggest hits, but I remember quite liking the film when I saw it. One of its songs,  “Nainon Mein, Nindiya Hai”, was very popular in its time. But the other songs were also fairly well-known, as was not uncommon for songs from Rajesh Khanna films at the time.

The song is “Baras Gayi Re Taras Gayi Re”. I had marked this song for a write-up the last time I wrote about Rajesh Khanna, but at the last minute, I decided to go with “O Monalisa” from ‘Dil Daulat Duniya’. I was a bit surprised to find that this song was still available for posting – so here goes.

The lyrics have been provided by Avinashji, who, as everyone knows is a big Rajesh Khanna fan. Even bigger than I am. So when I decided to write this up, he immediately offered to provide the lyrics. I gladly accepted. Thank you, Avinashji.

Hope you enjoy this song. It is written by Anand Bakshi and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.
