“Naqaab”(1955) was produced and directed by Lekhraj Bhakri for Tasveeristaan. The movie had Shammi Kapoor, Madhubala, Asha Mathur, Ajit, Heera Lal, Yashodhara Katju, Maruti etc. in it.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the fourth song from the movie. This song is sung by Shamshad Begam. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Pt Govindram.

Only the audio of this song is available. It sounds like a club dance song/ mujra song to me. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar (Naqaab)(1955) Singer-Shamshad Begam, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Pt Govindram

Lyrics

dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar
dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar
zara chhed de dil ke taar
bhar le aankhon mein pyaar
zara chhed de dil ke taar
bhar le aankhon mein pyaar
roz roz na aayegi ye rangeen bahaar
dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar

angdaaiyaan le le kar hai raat ki raani aayi
angdaaiyaan le le kar hai raat ki raani aayi
is chaand se mukhde par zulfon ki ghata hai chhaayi
kar ulfat ka ikraar
mere baanke dildaar
ye duniya hai din chaar
dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar

matwaale jhoom le
o mastaane jhoom le
matwaale jhoom le
o mastaane jhoom le
ulfat ki shama ke o parwaane jhoom le
ulfat ki shama ke o parwaane jhoom le

ye mast nazar hai tere liye
ye dil ye jigar hai tere liye
kaali zulfen gora mukhda
ye shaam o sahar hai tere liye
kar ulfat ka ikraar mere baanke dildaar
ye duniya hai din chaar
dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar

zara chhed de dil ke taar
bhar le aankhon mein pyaar
roz roz na aayegi ye rangeen bahaar
dil se dil ka paimaana takra le ik baar

Today (16 november 2017) is an important day for HFM. It was on this day 100 years ago that music director Chitragupta (16 november 1917- 14 january 1991) was born.

He composed music in 143 Hindi movie. In addition, he composed for Bhojpuri movies as well (including in the very first Bhojpuri movie).

Chitragupta made his debut in HFM in 1946. He came into his own during the net two decades. Chitragupta was mostly confined to B grade movies where he gave A grade music. He was one of the few HFM composers who could adapt to the demands of South Indian producers. Most A grade movies that Chitragupta got to compose for were South Indian productions.

And what great songs Chitragupta has composed. Quite a few of his songs have gone on to become iconic songs. If someone was leaving his home after a disagreement with his sibling, then he was bound to mention the immortal “Bhaabhi”(1957) song- Chal ud jaa re panchhi” in the note that he would leave behind. I have actually seen one such note.

In the first school that I attended as a tiny tot, the school prayer that we sang every morning was “tumhi ho maata pita tumhi ho”. The school management was suitably impressed with this “Main Chup Rahongi”(1962) song to adopt it as the school prayer. And that school was by no means the only such school.

Even today, the best English Babu-Desi Mem song is the wonderful “Vaasna”(1968) song “Jodi hamaari banega kaise jaani”. The archtypically philosophical Pradeed song “kabhi dhoop kabhi chhaaon” is a Chitragupta composition.

Chitrgupta was a person who would not approach people for work and he was content working with smaller budget producers. He for indtance never met Raj Kapoor during hi active career (which coincided with Raj Kapoor’s active career). Raj Kapoor met him for the first time in late 1980s when Chtragupta’s music director songs Anand-Milind introducd him to Raj Kapoor. and Raj Kapoor then stated taht he would have signed up Chitragupta if only he had approached him during his days.

Chitragupta composed around 1000 songs in movies in 143 plus movies. This blog has 401 of his compositions.

27 out of 143 of his movies are not yet represented in the blog. On the occasion of the birth centenary of Chitragupta, here is a song from a as yet unrepresented movie called “Bank Robbery”(1969). This B grade stunt movie was directed by Maruti for Kiran Films, Bombay. The movie had an archtypical B grade cast of Dev Kumar, Nivedita, Anwar Hussain, Madhumati, Shaminder, Shefali Chaudhary, Kundan, Samson, Johny Whisky, Tunyun, K Kumar, Amrit Rana, Bazid Khan, G H Shaam, Ramesh Bhatia, Chandru, Sheila R, Saeeda, Jayshree, Maruti etc in it.

Here is a song from the movie that should be considered a forgotten gem. This song is sung by Lata. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

The movie had five songs in it and they had the voices of four female singers and one male singer. Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

With this song, “Bank Robbery” (1969) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Ae jaane jaana ye tumne na jaana (Bank Robbery)(1969) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

ae jaane jaana
ye tumne na jaana
kitna mujhe tumse pyaar hai ae
ae jaane jaana
ye tumne na jaana
kitna mujhe tumse pyaar hai
tum sangdil ho
tumhen kya bataayen
dil kis liye beqaraar hai
ae jaane jaana
ye tumne na jaana

jhilmil jhilmil chanda ki kirnen
utri hain kuchh gungunaati
jhilmil jhilmil chanda ki kirnen
utri hain kuchh gungunaati
gumsum gumsum khoye kahaan ho
o mere sapnon ke saathi
tum pass ho
phir bhi lagta hai jaise
ab tak hamen intzaar hai
ae jaane jaana
ye tumne na jaana

maana manzil dushwaar hogi
mushqil bahut hongin raahein
maana manzil dushwaar hogi
mushqil bahut hongin raahein
humko dar kya jab meharbaan hain
ik humsafar ki nigaahein
har mod pe ab chaman khil gaye hain
har raaste par bahaar hai ae
ae jaane jaana
ye tumne na jaana
kitna mujhe tumse pyaar hai
ae jaane jaana
ye tumne na jaana

When it comes to remembering important dates, I plead guilty of being an amnesiac.

There have been occasions in the past when I have forgotten the birthday of my spouse and then I had to invent reasons.
(Statutory warning- Never try this at home. 🙂 )

Fortunately, in a few years time, when our daughter grew up, she would keep track of such dates and that would help me in saving my skin.

Just as I have my daughter to tell me about important dates in my personal life, we have our blog regulars who save my skin by reminding me about important dates (mostly birthdays) of our regulars.

It is Peevesie’s mom and Avinash Scrapwala, who reminded me that today (26 october 2017) was the birthday of Raja. I am very much aware that Raja’s birthday falls in the month of october, but I find it difficult to remember the exact date. Hopefully I will now be able to remember the date in future. I have now devised a memory aid to remember the date. R for Republic day (26 january), R for Raja (26 october). Easy, is it not ! 🙂

I am not the first one to greet Raja on the occasion. A few people had already greeted Raja on our whatapp group just after midnight. And then I also found a few messages, including a writeup, for the occasion on my inbox. And so Peevesie’s mom has already stolen a march over others when it comes to a writeup on the occasion. And one much say that she has given a very accurate and very well thought out description of Raja in her writeup.

So what do I write that has not been written by Peevesie’s mom, and which has not been written by others including me about him in the past ?
Well, I can think of some observations about Raja that we may have missed.

I know Raja from our cricket forum days of 2004. When we began following cricket, the cricketers were older than us. A few years later, a stage came when cricketers in our age group began to play international cricket. It would be an intersting exercise for cricket lovers to find out a cricketer who was born nearly on the same days in the same year. When I carried out this exercise, I found that Raja was born six days after Navjot Singh Sidhu. 🙂 As for me, I was born one month after Ravi Shashtri. 🙂 So both of us chose to be born a few days after two interesting cricketers cum highly entertaining commentators. 🙂

Raja holds a few firsts as far as this blog is concerned. He was the first person to comment on this blog. Subsequently he became the first guest contributor of the blog as well, inadvertently of course. In october 2010, he came over to Nagpur and met me. That was the very first “gangout” for this blog.

“gangout” incidently is a term that was inadvertently coined by Raja himself. 🙂 He had coined a term “Atulism” for my kind of humour during our cricket forum days, even before this blog was started. Then Peevesie’s mom coined the term “Atulite.” Raja derived terms like “Satulite” and “Batulite” from that. 🙂 Coining terms that only the regulars of this blog understand is a Raja speciality. 🙂

Raja too possesses his own kind of sense of humour. Sample this PJ shared by Raja

Among Mysore’s many attractions is its zoo.
A Mysorean, visiting Bangalore told me “You should see our zoo”.
So I watched the Sadhana-Rajendra Kumar starrer “Aarzoo” (1965)

People describing Raja have described his interests in the field of HF and HFM, and also in other fields. One can see that he likes many artists, and at the same time, he does not dislike any artists. He is not one of those biased “fans” who feel the urge to pull down the competitors of an artist in their enthusiasm to prove the superiority of one artist over others.

Apart from films, Raja is interested in politics, sports, trains, social issues etc. Apart from this blog, he sometimes posts his musings in his blog, though quite sporadically.

Current generation people may have difficulty writing more than a few lines on any topic, but Raja is from the era when reading and writing was a major activity for people. People would spend time reading thick books. Then there would be people who would be able to write long articles on subjects of their choice. Raja is one who can write long articles on subjects that interest him. The article for the 5000th post of this blog was a joint writeup by three contributors, starting from Raja. Peevesie’s mom concentrated very hard to read the whole writeup in one go but gave up after going though Raja’s writeup. 🙂 Current generation people do not have that kind of patience. How would Raja describe such low attention span of younger generation ? Something like this (Mirza Musharraf style):

“lahawlwala quwwat…Amma, aaj kal ke bachon ko to tehzeeb-e-intezaar ka zara sa bhi ilm nahin hai….is T20 ne to sabko bigaad rakha hai…hamare zamaane mein baat aur thi…Jab Merchant miya crease par the, to din bhar mein shaayad hi pachaas run bante the.. par unko dekhne ka lutf kuchh aur hi tha…”.

Raja’s writing prowess is noted by all, but few people may have noticed his comments. Whenever I wrote a long article on subjects of my interests (say my pets), I naturally looked for comments. I especially looked for comments by Raja, because Raja writes long and heartwarming comments that have the effect of making the day of the article writer. I cherish his comments that he has written on many of my articles and I often revisit them.

I have taken advantage of Raja’s fondness for Sahir Ludhianvi, Rafi etc and I have sometimes got him to write on them at the eleventh hour. And Raja has always delivered these special writeups promptly and without fail.

We have artists who are moody. Sometimes they do not give any output for many days and sometimes then churn out masterclasses regularly. Raja is like those artists. He is like Dhoni or Misbah ul Haq who would not score runs for many deliveries and then suddenly start dealing in fours and sixes. 🙂 These days he has started to take quick singles. 🙂

Raja tells us that he would often sing songs without realising it, and without noticing its effect on his audience.

In our cricket forum, whenever BCCI (Indian cricket team for he uninitiated) did badly, which was quite a regular thing to happen, Raja and other likeminded cricket followers would come up with hard hitting parodies of appropriate Hindi movie songs. Once we decided to make the screenplay of a masala laden Hindi movie in that forum. I think it was Raja who came up with the lyrics of some masala songs for this movie. 🙂

Raja’s philosophy towards life can be described in this poem that Raja himself came up with sometime back:

na main sant hoon, na tu paak hai
hona to dono ko hi khaak hai
tu bhi jee le, kuchh main bhi jee loon
ek doosre se takraana khatarnaak hai

After remembering the day, one needs to pick a song to greet Raja. Lucky Raja. There are so many songs containing the word Raja that one is spoilt for choice. There are in fact movies which have Raja in the title.

In the past years, I picked some “Raja” songs to greet Raja on his birth anniversary. Even this time, I had selected the perfect song for the occasion that went “Nanhe munne raaja ki saal girah aayi re.”. But guess what ! Raja played spoilsport and discussed this very song, Nanhe munne raaja ki saal girah aayi re (Anand Bhawan) on the occasion of this blog’s anniversary on 19 july 2017 ! It was like a hijacker hijacking himself. 🙂

Being robbed of the perfect Raja birth anniversary song, I had no option but to look for some other song. But why do I need to look for a song with “Raja” in it. there are other songs too that are quite appropriate for the occasion. And so I have picked one such song. It may not have the word Raja in it, and it does not have the Salgirah or its synonyms in the lyrics, but it is a befitting song for the occasion.

Here is this song from “Band Master”(1963). This movie was directed by Ravindra Dave for R L Films, Bombay. This obscure movie had Jagdeep, Azra, Lalita Pawar, Rajan Haksar, Ravikant etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. HFGK is silent about the singers of these songs including the song under question. But on listening to the songs, one can easily identify the voices in all four songs.

Three of these songs have been covered in the blog. Here is the fourth and final song from “Band Master”(1963) to appear in the blog. HFGK may be silent about it, but which music lover will fail to recognise the voice of the one and only Rafi. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

I once again take this opportunity to wish Raja a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. May Raja keep bringing sunshine in the lives of all of his praja.

With this song, “Band Master”(1963) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

“Delhi Junction”(1960) was produced by RL Sharma and directed by Mohammad Hussain for Nigaaristan (India) Films, Bombay. The movie had Ajeet, Shakeela, Nishi, Maruti, Manorama, Tiwari, Pran, Protima Devi, Murad, Rafiq, Kamal Mohan, Harun, Anwari Bai, Pal Sharma, Jagdish Kanwal, Nadir, Satish, Sadiq, Sarita, Kukku, Rajni, and Khurshid etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it that were penned by four lyricists viz. PL Santoshi, Prem Dhawan, Farooque Kaiser and Gulshan Bawra. 

Four songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth song from “Delhi Junction”(1960). This song is sung by Lata and Usha Mangeshkar. It is penned by Prem Dhawan. Music is composed by Kalyanji.

Only the audio of this song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

The audio of this song is not as good as it could be and the voices of the two singers (which otherwise are distinct) often cannot be separated from each other. Hopefully my colour coding is correct for the two voices.


Song-Kya karoon dil kahin pe kho gaya (Delhi junction)(1960) Singers-Lata, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Kalyanji

Lyrics

kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya aa
jaane do
hona thha jo ho gaya aa

kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya
kitna roka kitna toka
par sambhaala na gaya ho
kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya
jaane do
hona thha jo ho gaya

kya khata thhi ye nazar ki
ya dilon ka josh thha aa

aankh milte ho gaya kya
kisko itna hosh thha
dekhti hi rah gayi main
dekhti hi rah gayi main
jaane kya ho gaya
ho o o
kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya aa
jaane do
hona thha jo ho gaya

pyaar se na bach sakoge
phir ye darna kis liye ae

sochte thhe dil lagaa ke
aahen bharna kis liye
phir bhi dhokha kha hi baithhe
phir bhi dhokha kha hi baithhe
pyaar ho hi gaya
ho o o
kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya aa
jaane do
hona thha jo ho gaya

kitna roka kitna toka
par sambhaala na gaya ho
kya karoon
dil kahin pe kho gaya aa
jaane do
hona thha jo ho gaya

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that this song is picturised on the lead pair of Shakeela and Ajeet. Nevertheless, I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

Today (28 september 2017) is the birth anniversary of one and only Lata Mangeshkar. People may have wondered why there was a lull in the blog today. These days we have just a couple of posts daily with some rare days when we manage to crank up the rate to day four of five songs a day.

Lata Mangeshkar is the most well represented artist in the blog. As many as 3244 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar are represented in the blog. There was a time when she averaged over one song a day in the blog. With less songs posted in the blog over the last couple of years, now the figure stands at 3244 songs /3359 days, viz. 0.966 songs per day.

Out of these 3244 songs, as many as 2074 songs are solo songs. So the remaining 1170 of her songs are duets and others. Her most common singing partner has been Rafi. The two of them have collaborated in around 415 duets or so. As many as 328 of these duets are already represented in the blog.

On the occasion of Lata Mangeshkar’s birth anniversary today, here is a less heard Rafi Lata duet. This song is from “Band Master” (1963). This movie was directed by Ravindra Dave for R L Films, Bombay. This obscure movie had Jagdeep, Azra, Lalita Pawar, Rajan Haksar, Ravikant etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. HFGK is silent about the singers of these songs including the song under question. But on listening to the songs, one can easily identify the voices in all four songs.

The song under discussion, the third song from the movie to be covered here, is sung by Lata and Rafi. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Chitragupta.

On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Lata Mangeshkar (28 september 1929), here is the 329th Rafi-Lata duet to appear in the blog. I take this opportunity to wish her a very happy birth anniversary and wish her many more happy returns of the day.


Song-Sajna saawan aaya (Band Master)(1963) Singers-Lata, Rafi, Lyrics-Prem Dhawan, MD-Chitragupta

Lyrics

haaye
dil baandh ke mera aanchal mein

Today’s song is from film Lajawab-50. It was a production of Variety pictures – a company owned by actress Ashalata Biswas- wife of Anil Biswas ( real name Mehrunnisa Bhagat). It is needless to state that the music for this and every film of this company, was composed by Anil Biswas. The film was directed by the veteran J.P.Advani, who was known to Anil Biswas from the mid 30s. However, they came together only in 3 successive films, namely Veena-48, Laadli-49 and Lajawab-50.

The month of ‘August’ holds a very special place in our hearts. We celebrate our Independence Day on the Fifteenth day of this month every year since 1947.

In 1942 the ‘Quit India Movement’ or the ‘Bharat Chhodo Andolan’ was launched on 8th August’1942 and Gandhi ji gave a call of ‘Do or Die’. Starting 9th Aug’1942 in the next few days the whole nation witnessed the greatest uprising against the British. Today (9 august 2017) is the 75th anniversary of that important date.
