Today’s song is from the movie ‘Mehmil’. It is one of those movies from the year 1972 which is yet to be represented on the blog.

‘Mehmil’ is directed by Vibhuti Mishra for Mitra Productions, Bombay. The list of actors includes Farah, Shiv Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Vibhuti Mishra, Indrani Dutt, Pratima Devi, Mona, Jayant Bhatt, Pankaj, Tun Tun, Shekhar Purohit, Prem Mubarak, Prem Pujari, Yunus Bihari, Sitara, Lakshmi, Jeniffer, Shareefa, Dulari, Rajkumari and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 13.10.1972.

This movie has five songs – four penned by Kafil Azar and one song penned by Qamar Jalalabadi. Music for this movie is composed by Sonik-Omi. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

Sl. No. Song Title Singer/s
01 Kitna hai soona soona mehmil (Part-1) Asha Bhonsle
02 Hamen milnaa thhik nahin Asha Bhonsle
03 Meri jaan hai sona Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi
04 Kitna hai soona soona mehmil (Part-2) Omi
05 Kaash main ladki hota Asha Bhonsle

Today’s song is sung by Omi and when I listen this song the very first time, I liked it very much. Omi’s singing in this song is something special that leaves one humming this song after it ends. And it grows as we listen to it more. I had earlier presented the title song of ‘Ek Khilaadi Baawan Pattey’ sung by him. It would be interesting to know how many songs he had sung in HFM so far.

Well, HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) lists the today’s song in two parts. However, on all sources only this Omi version is available. Though some sources give the link with the name of singer Asha Bhonsle but have uploaded the same song sung by Omi. I tried to locate the female version but could not find it so far. Till then we will enjoy this song in the voice of Omi. We will add the female version to today’s post if it is made available later.

The videos of the songs of ‘Mehmil’ are also not available and neither is the movie available online. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Meaning of ‘Mehmil’ as taken from Rekhta.org

(maḥmil n. of place fr ‘to bear, carry,’ c.)

(A maḥmil (n. of place fr ‘to bear, carry,’ &c.), s.m. That by which anything is supported, that in (or on) which anything is borne; that which carries the double load of a camel, a camel’s saddle; a camel litter or dorser (in which women travel).

Let us have a look on the list of movies of 1972 after adding the today’s movie and till the today’s movie alphabetically. Today’s movie is the 76th in this alphabetical list.
Ed Note: In the interest of brevity, the list is collapsed to show the films onward from the previous episode in the series , namely ‘Maanavta’ plus the ones that are without any available information or songs. Readers may refer to previous episodes of this series for earlier details – “Tere Vishal Hriday Ne Paai, Saaton Saagar KI Gehraai“.

*Notes:

  1. Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johnny’ and ‘Hunterwaali’ seems to be unavailable as of now.
  2. The film ‘Kavi Sammelan’ was a presentation of poetry by selected iconic poets of our country, of that time.
  3. There is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’, ‘Jaadoo Nagari’ and ‘Maaya Darpan’ as mentioned above.

Let us now listen to the today’s song. . .

 

Song – Kitna Hai Soona Soona Mehmil Hamaara Re (Mehmil) (1972) Singer – Omi, Lyrics – Kafil Azar, MD – Sonik Omi

Lyrics

kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re ae

kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re
aa jaaye saathi koyi ban ke sahaara re ae
aa jaaye saathi koi
ban ke sahaara re
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re

sapnon ka dil mein mela hai ae
phir bhi ye dil akela hai
ho koi hamsafar to ho miley bhola bhaala
le le jo haath haathon mein ae
jaadu ho jiski baaton mein
ke meri nazar ko o lage wo niraala
dekhe zamaana usey itna ho pyaara re ae
aa jaaye saathi ee koi
ban ke sahaara re
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re ae
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re

aaya thha ban ke saathi jo o
nikla ajeeb raahi wo
ho mujhe kya samajh ke ae
milaa thha wo jhoothha
chheda jo main afsaana aa
us ko banaaya deewaana
o zara door chalke ae mujh se wo roothha
samjha na baatein meri
haaye bechaara re ae
aaya thha saathi ee koi
ban ke sahaara re ae
kitna hai soona soona
mehmil hamaara re

कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे
आ जाये साथी कोई बन के सहारा रे
आ जाये साथी कोई बन के सहारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे

सपनों का दिल में मेला है
फिर भी ये दिल अकेला है
हो कोई हमसफर तो हो मिले भोला भाला
ले ले जो हाथ हाथों में
जादू हो जिसकी बातों में
के मेरी नज़र को ओ लगे वो निराला
देखे ज़माना उसे इतना हो प्यारा रे
आ जाये साथी कोई बन के सहारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे

आया था बनके साथी जो
निकला अजीब राही वो
हो मुझे क्या समझ के
मिला था वो झूठा
छेड़ा जो मैंने अफसाना
उसको बनाया दीवाना
ज़रा दूर चल के मुझसे वो रूठा
समझा ना बातें मेरी
हाए बेचारा रे
कितना है सूना सूना महमिल हमारा रे

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 9
———————————————————————

My last post on our blog has been sometime back. I have been meaning to write about this song which has a couple of rare occurrences in the Hindi Film and Music world and was waiting for an opportune moment.

Recently, I have been fighting my own battles on my health front, having been hospitalised for surgical and advanced interventional pain management procedures, more than a couple of times in the last one year. I have diabetes, which is under control, however it has caused neuropathy in both my feet causing severe pain with tingling and burning sensations. I would like to take this opportunity to create awareness amongst all the readers of this blog that diabetes can be very dangerous and draining and that one should take care of their feet. One’s feet bear the entire weight of one’s body but always fail to get the attention and good care, as with other parts of the body.

Well, coming back to today’s post. Late last month, we, the regular (and irregular) contributors of this blog were told by our beloved SudhirJi, that the blog was to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its creation and that song posts were expected from all the contributors. However, as hard as I tried, I couldn’t stick up to the deadline of sending in our contributions. However, Sudhir Ji would not relent and sent me another request to send in my post. This made me very embarrassed and I made a promise to myself that come what may, I will write my post and send it today, three days after my second extended deadline.

My association with this blog actually started around two years after I started my Facebook group – Rare Hindi Film Songs in 2010. In searching for old and rare songs to post, I would often visit the blog and later I came to know that even Atul Ji, the creator of this blog was a member and a regular visitor of my group. However, it took me almost 4 years to write my first post – for the song “Chup Chup Chup Kyon Baithe Ho” – and send it to Atul Ji for moderation and posting. Since then, I have been sending in my posts in bursts, start and stop.

Till date I have just posted about 20 odd songs, but I feel so much drawn to the Atulites group that I feel I have come to my home group amongst these various people across the world, who share similar passion and views. In particular, Avinash Ji and Sudhir Ji seem to like my kind of songs from movies of the 70s and early eighties, not that others are not encouraging.

My heartiest congratulations to Atul Ji, ASAD, Atulites and all the people who love HFM, on the 10th anniversary of this endeavour !!!

Now coming to today’s song. As I have mentioned above, this is a special song for me as it has a few rare characteristics associated with it, in the HFM world and also since it is quite a rare song. It is from the Pran, Navin Nischol and Rekha starrer ‘Dharma’ released in 1973. Two other songs from this movie have been posted earlier on the blog. For those who haven’t seen the movie or have forgotten it, the plot summary can be read here on IMDB.

Now, coming to this song with ‘Two Rare Occurrences’ for a Hindi movie!

It is an almost eight minute long song, starting with a straight cut and paste of the song “Aur Mera Naam Hai Jameela” sung by Lata Mangeshkar from the 1967 film ‘Night in London’ (composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal and penned by Anand Bakshi). In both the films, Helen is the dancer performing this song on screen. But of course, the choreography is different in the two films. In this clip from ‘Dharma’, only one stanza of the original song from ‘Night In London’ is included and it is about 2 minutes in duration. Well this is one rare thing.

The second and most important rare thing about this song is that after Helen’s initial lip syncing to this cut-paste song, the actual song, sung by Asha Bhosle, is lip synced by four of the best cabaret dancers of that era. Of course after the Numero Uno – Helen – who’s in the first part. The subsequent segments are performed by Faryal, Sonia Sahani, Jayashree T and Bindu.

The video opens with Helen beginning the dance with some male dancers. The music has already begun. We can also see Ramesh Deo with Asit Sen, who is watching the dance wide-eyed and lecherously. They go to another dance bar and Faryal starts her part followed by Sonia Sahni performing in the third bar. In the fourth bar, Jayashree T is performing bhangra. In the last bar, they do drugs with drinks while Bindu is performing. In this film, Madan Puri and Ramesh Deo are together shown to cheat rich men by taking them to clubs and tempting them with wine and women. The song shows Seth Garib Das (Asit Sen) is being trapped by them and this cabaret number is organized for him.

I hope all of you like the interesting facts of this song as well as the song. Please comment.

Song – Arey Saaqi Jo Kal Ki Hai Bachi Baaki (Dharma) (1973) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Omi, Lyrics – Verma Malik, MD – Sonik-Omi

Lyrics

yaar ki nigaahon me
pyaar ki mehfil me
saahib main rahti hoon
aashiqon ke dil me
aur mera naam hai jameela

har ek dil ko dhadakne ki aadat huyi
main jis gali se bhi guzri qayamat huyi
log nazren bichaane lage
log nazren bichaane lage
haal dil ka sunaane lage
yaar ki nigaahon me
pyaar ki mehfil me
saahib main rahti hoon
aashiqon ke dil me
aur mera naam hai jameela

arey saaqi
jo kal ki hai
bachi baaki
usi ka daur chal jaaye
arey saaqi
jo kal ki hai
bachi baaki
usi ka daur chal jaaye
utha parda
dekh jalwa
ke sheeshe mein
jawani ab utar jaaye
arey saaqi

rani hoon main raat ki
tu hai galiyon ka raaja
aa
rani hoon main raat ki
tu hai galiyon ka raaja
soyi hui jawani ko
tu chhoo ke zara jaga ja
meri nigahein, aadayen ye baahein bulaayen
veeraa. . .
hahh veeraa. . .aah
la laa la laa la laa la laa

o ho
machal ke pee
sambhal ke pee
paimane mein maikhaana doob na jaaye
machal ke pee
sambhal ke pee
paimane mein maikhaana doob na jaaye
arey saaqi

dil le ja nishaani
badi meherbaani
haaye dil le jaa nishaani
badi meherbaani
teri jiyegi
teri jiyegi jug jug jawaani
o mere dil jaani
teri jiyegi jug jug jawaani
ho mere dil jaani
haaye
ve sun sajna
ve sun makhna
tu yaad rakhna
ke yaari toot na jaaye
ve sun sajna
ve sun makhna
tu yaad rakhna
ke yaari toot na jaaye
ve sun sajana..aa..aa. . .

dum mein dum hai to dum laga
duniya kya hai nasha hi nasha
aasmaan ke baadal to
kuchh bhi nahin
mazaa to tab hai ke
zameen pe baadal bana
mere humdum
raat hai kam
ke baaton mein
ye saari
raat na jaaye
mere humdum. . .

यार की निगाहों में
प्यार की महफिल में
साहिब मैं रहती हूँ
आशिक़ों के दिल में
और मेरा नाम है जमीला

हर एक दिल को धड़कने की आदत हुई
मैं जिस गली से भी गुज़री क़यामत हुई
लोग नज़रें बिछाने लगे
लोग नज़रें बिछाने लगे
हाल दिल का सुनाने लगे
यार की निगाहों में
प्यार की महफिल में
साहिब मैं रहती हूँ
आशिक़ों के दिल में
और मेरा नाम है जमीला

अरे साक़ी
जो कल की है
बची बाकी
उसी का दौर चल जाये
अरे साक़ी
जो कल की है
बची बाकी
उसी का दौर चल जाये
उठा पर्दा
देख जलवा
के शीशे में
जवानी अब उतार जाये
अरे साक़ी

रानी हूँ मैं रात की
तू है गलियों का राजा

रानी हूँ मैं रात की
तू है गलियों का राजा
सोई हुई जवानी को
तू छू के ज़रा जगा जा
मेरी निगाहें अदाएं ये बाहें बुलाएँ
वीरा॰ ॰ ॰
हाहह वीरा॰ ॰ ॰ आहह
ल ला ल ला ल ला ल ला

ओ हो
मचल के पी
संभाल के पी
पैमाने में मैखाना डूब ना जाये
मचल के पी
संभाल के पी
पैमाने में मैखाना डूब ना जाये
अरे साक़ी

दिल दे जा निशानी
बड़ी मेहरबानी
हाय दिल दे जा निशानी
बड़ी मेहरबानी
तेरी जिएगी
तेरी जिएगी जुग जुग जवानी
ओ मेरे दिल जानी
तेरी जिएगी जुग जुग जवानी
हो मेरे दिल जानी
हाए वे सुन सजना
वे सुन मखना
तू याद रखना
के यारी तू ना जाये
वे सुन सजना
वे सुन मखना
तू याद रखना
के यारी तू ना जाये
वे सुन सजना॰॰आ॰॰आ॰॰आ

दम में दम है तो दम लगा
दुनिया क्या है नशा ही नशा
आसमां के बादल तो
कुछ भी नहीं
मज़ा तो तब है के
ज़मीं पे बादल बना
मेरे हमदम
रात है कम
के बातों में
ये सारी
रात ना जाये
मेरे हमदम॰ ॰ ॰

Fortunately or unfortunately (for my friends, readers and followers) I belong to the variety of people who take pleasure in bringing out the hidden rare gems from HFM, usually from the 60s and the 70s. In keeping with my passion for “Rare Hindi Film Songs” (RHFS is my group on FB), today, I present two forgotten gems from one single movie – “Raftaar” released in 1975.

Yesterday (12 july 2013) brought us the sad news that Pran, the legendary villain of 1950s and 60s who then turned a legendary character actor of later decades had breathed his last. Pran Krishan Sikand (12 february 1920- 12 july 2013) made his debut in Hindi movies with “Khaandaan” (1942) as a hero. This movie was produced in Lahore, his favourite place. He subsequently made a mark as a hero in Lahore movie circles.
