The song is a devotional song cum “summoning the Almighty” genre of song. The picturisation shows Dara Singh lp syncing and leading a group of devotees while marching in a religious procession. The lady looking on at him appeared looks like a young Anjana Manjrekar (Mumtaz) though her name does not figure in the star cast. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identfy her as well as others in the picurisation.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 22
————————————————

This day, ten years ago, the songs that we were listening to are listed below,

 

Dukh Ke Ab Din Beetat Naahin Devdas 1935
Antam Fantam Chhod De Babu Hum Sab Chor Hain 1956
Hai Kali Kali Ke Lab Par Lala Rukh 1958
Jaa Re Beimaan Tujhe Jaan Liyaa Private Secretary 1962
Dil Ki Girah Khol Do Raat Aur Din 1967
Apni Aadat Hai Sabko Salaam Karnaa Pyaar Deewaana 1972

 

Six songs were posted, six films represented. Over the past 10 years, four of these films have completed their run of songs – ‘Devdas’ (1935), ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’ (1956), ‘Lala Rukh’ (1958) and ‘Raat Aur Din’ (1967).

For the remaining two films, the score card says –

‘Private Secretary’ (1962) – 4 songs posted out of total 7 listed, and
‘Pyaar Deewaana’ (1972) – 2 songs posted out of total 8 listed.

So in preparation for the Ten Year Challenge post for today, as I started to scan the remaining songs of these two films, I had to stop right at the first song that I checked, for I knew it has to be this one today. The song is a stage dance song from the film ‘Private Secretary’. The listing in the Geet Kosh is not fully informative, because the song title listed is actually the lead in verse to the song. The burden of the song comes later, and it was not apparent when I read the song title. But when I played this song – my goodness, I am amazed that a song of this caliber has been lying unnoticed for all these years. That is the reason for the urgency in my mind to post this.

This song was frequently heard on the air waves during the radio listening days, and so it is a very familiar and a favorite song from that time. After the leading verse, as soon as Lata ji starts to croon “O O O Saanwre. . .”, I just sat up straight with surprise – my God, this song, this lovely melody. Not yet posted. Hiding where all these years. And I knew it has to get posted right away.

The film ‘Private Secretary’ is produced under the banner of Radiant Movies, Bombay and is directed by Chander. The cast of actors is listed as Ashok Kumar, Jaishri Gadkar, NA Ansari, Mohan Choti, Poornima, Raja Gosavi, Neelam, Jerry, TN Sinha, Manohar Geer, Raj Kumar, Ravi Khanna, Kashi, CN Kapoor, Athawale, and Umakant. The seven songs listed are all from the pen of Prem Dhawan, and the music is composed by Dilip Dholakia. The singing voice is of Lata Mangeshkar.

The song is performed by Jaishree Gadkar on screen, as a stage performance. In the beginning of the song, we can see Ashok Kumar and Mohan Choti as part of the audience. A wonderful song and an equally wonderful performance – the song merits to be on the list of best dance songs.

Listen to this charming melody. And tell me. Did you have the same reaction as I did?

Song – O Saanwre, Aa Ja Pyaar Liyei  (Private Secretary) (1962) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Dilip Dholakia

Missing Films of 1960s – 93

With this song, we introduce the film ‘Nai Zindagi’ from 1969. As I check the Geet Kosh listings, I find two more films with the same name – one from 1943 and the second from 1951. The 1943 film has Sheikh Mukhtar and Anees Khaatoon as the lead pair. In the 1951 movie, the lead pair is Nirupa Roy and Amarnath. The one in 1969 has Dev Kumar and Kumkum as the lead stars.

This film is produced under the banner of Naaz Productions and is directed by Dada Pathaare. The star cast of this film is listed as Prithviraj, Kumkum, Dev Kumar, Jeevan, Kan Mohan, Meenakshi, Niranjan Sharma, Jagirdar, Ratnamala, Gopikrishan, and Madhumati.

The film has 6 songs, all written by Prem Dhawan. Music is composed by Chitragupt. The song presented today is rendered by Lata Mangeshkar. In this song, the lady is expressing her desire to meet her beloved again, calling out to him – that her tresses are flowing like a snake, and he should come as a snake charmer. Given that Kumkum is the leading lady, my thought is that this song could have been performed by her on the screen. But that is just a guess. I request other knowledgeable friends who may have seen this film, to please add more information about the film and this song.

With this post, the 1969 film ‘Nai Zindagi’ makes a debut on our blog.

Missing Films of 1960s – 92
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

For today’s episode of this series, I present this sensuous song from the 1970 film ‘Veer Abhimanyu’.  As the name suggests, this is a mythological film, which based on the historical narrative from the epic Mahabharat. It covers the part of history of Abhimanyu, the son of Arjun. I give a brief summary below.

Abhimanyu is the son of Arjun and Subhadra. As Subhadra is the younger sister of Krishna and Balram, that makes Krishna and Balram uncles (mamma) of Abhimanyu. Being the son and nephew of the three best stalwarts of this epic, Abhimanyu is groomed to become one of the bravest and best warriors amongst the entire Kuru clan (i.e. both the Kaurav and Pandav lineages).

There is a short episode in Mahabharat, where it is narrated how Abhimanyu learnt the art of piercing and entering the Chakravyuh formation on a battlefield. A Chakravyuh is a formidable and impenetrable discus shaped formation of soldiers. The main purpose of this formation is to keep safe the generals and the battle leaders from the enemy warriors. It is a complex structure of intertwined ring formations of soldiers, and is almost impossible to penetrate. When Subhadra was pregnant, carrying Abhimanyu in her womb, one night Arjun was describing the complex structure of this formation, the trick to penetrate and enter it, then how to destroy it from the inside and then exit from the ruins of this formation. It is stated that Abhimanyu learnt this warfare strategy, in his mother’s womb, while Arjun was describing it. As the narrative tells us, after listening to about half of this description, Subhadra drifted into sleep. And so, Abhimanyu could imbibe only the first half of this strategy, i.e. penetrating and entering this formation, but could not get the remaining description on how to exit from it. This partial learning had a very telling consequence on battlefield of Kurukshetra.

As the Mahabharat war started, Abhimanyu was one of the primary architects of the roster of daily victories for the Pandavs. He was just sixteen years old at that time. On the first day of warfare, Abhimanyu engaged Bhisma, his great grandfather, in one-on-one battle. By the end of the day, Bhishma is not able to overcome Abhmanyu, rather by end of the day, Abhimanyu breaks the bow in the hands of Bhishma. And the day ends. On the second day, Abhimanyu attacks Ashwathama, son of Dronacharya, the seer who has taught the Kauravs and Pandavs in the skills and art of waepons and warfare. On hearing that Abhimanyu has attacked Ashwathama, Drona immediately comes to his son’s assistance. Another day long duel happens, and Drona is finally at the mercy of Abhimanyu. And the day ends.

For the third day, Drona devises a deceptive strategy. A part of Kaurav army would engage and draw away Arjun, and Krishna along with him, to a far point from the main battlefield. Then another part of the Kaurav army would form the Chakravyuh, and engage the remaining warriors of the Pandav army, which would expectedly be led by Abhimanyu. To everyone’s knowledge, only two people know the stratagem of how to break the Chakravyuh formation – Arjun and Krishna. And both of them are lured away on a deceptive trail elsewhere. The purpose is to engage and defeat Abhimanyu, without exposing the main warriors of the Kaurav side. To everyone’s surprise, Abhmanyu, instead of being daunted in the face of the Chakravyuh takes on the challenge, breaks it and enters. The Kaurav battle leaders are frightened – that this boy knows the secrets of this strategy. But in fact, Abhimanyu knows only half the strategy, as described above. He nonetheless enters the Chakravyuh. There is a long list of names of warriors on Kaurav side given in the narrative – the ones who are defeated and killed by Abhimanyu on that day. But in the end, being unable to make progress outwards from the Chakravyuh, Abhimanyu is surrounded by the Kaurav warriors, who engage him one-to-many.

Abhimanyu fights till the end. The horses of his chariot are killed, Kripacharya kills his chariot drivers, his chariot is destroyed, his bow is broken by an arrow from behind him, fired by Karna. He takes to fight with sword and shield, then takes on a chariot wheel to stave off his opponents. When the chariot wheel also is broken, he is engaged in gada-yudh (fighting using the mace) by son of Dushaasan. In the end, he is killed by a blow of mace from the behind.

In this episode, the stalwarts of the Kaurav army broke so many rules of warfare engagements, that were conventionally agreed upon by the two armies. There would only be one-on-one battle between warriors; an injured warrior would not be attacked; a warrior not having any weapons or arms would not be attacked; the chariot horses and chariot drivers would not be attacked; no warrior would be attacked from behind. Such was the prowess and the fighting ability of this young warrior, and such was the fear he generated when he penetrated the Chakravyuh that the entire Kaurav army on that day, including Bhishma, Drona, Kripacharya, Karna, Duryodhan, Dushaasan, and many others, put together their strength, and broke umpteen rules of engagement, in their endeavor to take out Abhimanyu from the battle equation.

The amorous side of this narrative is the marriage of Abhimanyu with Uttara.

Abhimanyu’s wife is Uttara, the daughter of King Viraat. Their coming together is also an interesting narrative. When the Pandavs have been exiled, they are supposed to spend twelve years away from from Hastinapur, and after that they have to spend one year in agyaat-vaas – incognito anonymous exile. If by any chance, their whereabouts become known during this last one year, the term of their exile would be extended by another twelve years. During this period of agyaat-vaas, Pandavs take refuge in the kingdom of King Viraat, all being disguised into different roles concealing their real identities.

As part of this masquerade, Arjun takes on the role of Brihannala, an eunuch who teaches music and dance to the children of King Viraat. Later, when their identities are revealed at the end of this period, King Viraat is gratuitous and happy, and proposes to offer his daughter Uttara in marriage to Arjun. Arjun declines the proposal saying that since Uttara is his student, he cannot think of a matrimonial relationship with her. He, in turn proposes to accept her as his daughter-in-law, much to the delight of King Viraat and the entire Pandav family. The Pandav family is rejoicing because, unknown to Arjun, but known to Yudhishtar and Draupadi, Abhimanyu and Uttara have already met and are in love.

When the sad end comes for Abhimanyu in the battlefield, Uttara is carrying his child – Parikshit. Parikshit goes on to inherit the throne of Hasitnapur, as the sole surviving heir of the entire Kuru clan. After the demise of all other male members of the two families in the great war, and after the departure of Pandavas alongwith Draupdi to the Himalayas, Pariskshit becomes the King of this land. His reign also signals the advent of the Kali-yug on this earth.

The song that is presented today, depicts the yearning of Uttara for Abhimanyu. The two have already met, are in love, and the lady is pining for his company. On screen, the role of Uttara is played by Kanchana. The lady who accompanies her is Krishna Kumari, an actress from Tamil / Telugu films. [Thanks to Prakash ji for the identification.]
She is accompanied by another lady friend, who I am not able to identify. I request other knowledgeable readers to please help identify this actress.

The film is produced under the banner of Shri Rajlakshmi Pictures, Madras, and is directed by V Madhusudan Rao. Quite possibly, this is a Hindi remake of the original Tamil or Telugu version. The star cast is listed as NT Ramarao, Shobhan Babu, Pehalwan Kantarao, Padmanabhan, Kanchana, and G Varalakshmi. Six songs are listed for this film, all are written by Prem Dhawan, and the music is also composed by him.

We have had some recent discussion on sensuous and suggestive songs in the early decades, some of which were ordered to be cut from the film by the Censor Board. This song is quite high in that category of being sensuous and suggestive. And yet, in 1970, this song was allowed by the Censor Board. The social and moral norms change so much over the decades.

However, apart from the visuals, I liked this song for the quality of its verses, the music, and its rendition. A very well created song in my opinion.

Song – Kisne Chhoo Liya Naazuk Tan Haaye Ram  (Veer Abhimanyu) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Prem Dhawan

Missing Films of 1960s – 83
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

A delectable discovery, this wonderful duet of Asha ji and Usha ji. And one more film of the 1960s gets added to our blog today.

‘Tarzan 303’ – I was not even aware of this film before I started working on this series. And even now, no information is available, except what is there in the Geet Kosh. Indian film producers have a set fascination for the theme of Tarzan. From 1931 to 1980, no less than 15 films have been produced which contain ‘Tarzan’ in their title. And there probably are some more after 1980 also.

The film being introduced today is a production from the banner of Bhanu Films, Bombay and is directed by Chandrakant. There are four songs listed for this film. All songs are from the pen of Prem Dhawan, and the music composition is by Harish Dhawan. No information about this music director is forthcoming. As per Geet Kosh, this seems to be the only film for which he has composed the music. I do not know if he is in any way connected with Prem Dhawan. I would request our more knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this unknown music director, as well as about this film.

The cast of actors is listed as Master Chandgiram, Shabnam, K N Singh, Tiwari, Azad, Renu, Johnny Whisky, Bhupendra, Lata Arora, Ravi Singh, Dilip Dutt, Rani Malini, Rajni, Uttam Kumar, V K Verma, Hameed, Khalid, Ramlal Pehalwan, Sato Pehalwan, Rambabu Pehalwan, R Chandra, Ridku, Rizvi, Ramchandra, and Shakeela Bano Bhopali. Quite a standard fare, as expected for a stunt film in the 1960s. Master Chandgi Ram is the name that stands out as a new name. I have presented his brief biosketch in my earlier post from this series itself, when I presented the song “Neele Ambar Se Tumhaare Liye Aayi” of the film ‘Veer Gatotkach’ (1970). Apparently he has appeared only in three films on record, the third one being ‘Maha Shivratri’ from 1972.

The song presented today is a delightful duet sung by Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar. Quite a quick paced rendition for what seems to be a twin dance song on the screen. Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Haaye Haaye Tera Jawaab Kahaan  (Tarzan 303) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Harish Dhawan
Asha Bhosle + Usha Mangeshkar

Lyrics

haaye haaye tera jawaab kahaan
aisa shabaab kahaan
tauba ye jalwa tera
haaye haaye main mar gai
tauba ye jalwa tera
haaye haaye tera jawaab kahaan
aisa shabaab kahaan
tauba ye jalwa tera
haaye haaye main mar gai
tauba ye jalwa tera

neend aati nahin hai sanam
hamen to ab raaton mein
neend aati nahin hai sanam
hamen to ab raaton mein
baithe rehte hain hum raat bhar
ye dil liye haathon mein
kabhi to dekho idhar
meri jaan bas ik nazar
chaahne waale tere hain hum dilruba
haaye haaye tera jawaab kahaan
aisa shabaab kahaan
tauba ye jalwa tera
haaye haaye main mar gai
tauba ye jalwa tera

sab pe aate jawaani ki din
magar yun na aate hain
sab pe aate jawaani ki din
magar yun na aate hain
dekh le tujhko jo ek jhalak
nazar na hataate hain
jawaani chadhti rahe
khumaari badhti rahe
deten hain ye duaaen tujhe hum sada
haaye haaye tera jawaab kahaan
aisa shabaab kahaan
tauba ye jalwa tera
haaye haaye main mar gai
tauba ye jalwa tera

ऐसा शबाब कहाँ
तौबा ये जलवा तेरा
हाए हाए मैं मर गई
तौबा ये जलवा तेरा

Lyrics

Missing Films of 1960s – 82
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Our journey of missing 1960s films continues. Coming to the next film – this one is ‘Veer Amar Singh Rathaur’ from 1970.

This film is from the banner of Sudarshan Chitra, Bombay, and is directed by Radhakant. The cast of actors listed for this film are Dev Kumar, Kumkum, Zeb Rehman, Tiwari, Jeevan, Kamal Kapoor, Johnny Whisky, and Jeevankala amongst others.

A film by this title was also made in 1957 – a slight variation in name – it was titled ‘Amar Singh Rathaur’. The earlier film had Jairaj and Nirupa Roy in lead roles. And it had 12 songs written by Bharat Vyas and composed by Sanmukh Babu Upadhyay. The 1970 reprisal has Dev Kumar and Kum Kum in lead roles. And this version has 14 songs all written and composed by Prem Dhawan.

There is possibly another film by this name, released later than 1980, but I am not very certain.

Prem Dhawan, who is known much better as a songwriter, has also worked as a music director for about 15 to 18 films during is career, about 5 of which are Punjabi films. He has mostly worked as a composer for films for which he also has written the songs. In one film, he has composed songs written by Kavi Pradeep (for ‘Kisaan Aur Bhagwa’, 1974) and for one more film, he has composed songs written by Ali Sardar Jafri (for ‘Naxalites’, 1980).

Only the audio of this song is available, but from listening to it, one can surmise that this song is a twin dance song. The singing voices in this all female duet are of Asha Bhosle and Usha Mangeshkar. I request other readers and friends who may have seen this film, to please add more information about this song, and the film.

A very peppy dance song, that talks about the ill effects of falling in love, and also of the sweet emotions. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Akhiyan Mila Ke Akhiyan  (Veer Amar Singh Rathaur) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Prem Dhawan
Asha Bhosle + Usha Mangeshkar

Lyrics

ho akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
ho main to baaz aai
ho main to pachhtaai
ke jaagun ab saari saari ratiyaan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan

jab se dekha hai dharti ka chaand
tab se dekha na chanda gagan ka
udd gai ab to aankhon ki neend
hosh kis ko hai ab tan badan ka
ke dagar bhool chali
haaye
ke nagar bhool chali

haaye
bhooli jaati hain bachpan ki sakhiyaan

haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan

haaye ye meethi meethi jalan
pyaar kehta hai jis ko zamaana
ab to jitna tadapta hai dil
dard lagta hai utna suhaana
unhin ki baat sochun
haaye
yahi din raat sochun

haaye
kaise un se kahun dil ki batiyaan

haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan

koi leta hai jab unka naam
mann hi mann jhoom leti hoon main to
jaane kyon dekh ke aainaa
apna munh choom leti hoon main to
ke khud hi likhti rahoon
haaye
ke khud hi padhti rahoon
oy
jaane kitni hi pyaar bhari patiyaan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan

o main to baaz aai
o main to pachhtaai
ke jaagun ab saari saari ratiyaan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan
haaye re akhiyaan mila ke akhiyan

हो अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हो मैं तो बाज़ आई
हो मैं तो पछताई
के जागूँ अब सारी सारी रतियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ

जब से देखा है धरती का चाँद
तब से देखा ना चंदा गगन का
उड़ गई अब तो आँखों की नींद
होश किसको है तन बदन का
के डगर भूल चली
हाए
के नगर भूल चली
हाए
भूली जाती हूँ बचपन की सखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ

हाए ये मीठी मीठी जलन
प्यार कहता है जिसको ज़माना
अब तो जितना तड़पता है दिल
दर्द लगता है उतना सुहाना
उन्हीं की बात सोचूँ
हाए
यही दिन रात सोचूँ
हाए
कैसे उनसे कहूँ दिल की बतियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ

कोई लेता है जब उनका नाम
मन ही मन झूम लेती हूँ मैं तो
जाने क्यों देख के आईना
अपना मुंह चूम लेती हूँ मैं तो
के खुद ही लिखती रहूँ
हाए
के खुद ही पढ़ती रहूँ
ओय
जाने कितनी ही प्यार भरी पतियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ

ओ मैं तो बाज़ आई
ओ मैं तो पछताई
के जागूँ अब सारी सारी रतियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ
हाए रे अखियाँ मिला के अखियाँ

Blog Day : 3739 Post No. : 14693

A real life funtoosh, if ever there was one. So many anecdotes from his real life are told – and they read like a story writer creating script for comic scenes.

Like the fact that he had a sign that said ‘Beware of Kishore’ on the door of his Warden Road flat – once HS Rawail came to visit him, and offered his hand for a handshake, and Kishore took his hand and bit it; when Rawail asked him why he did that, Kishore pointed to the sign on the door saying – “Didn’t you read this. . .”.

Or the time he appeared on the sets with make up on half of his face – he had not yet been paid in full by the producer.

Or the time when filming a scene in which he was driving a car, he continued driving and reached Khandala, because the director did not say ‘cut’ to end the scene.

His frolic and cheekiness is so well evident in his roles and antics onscreen, and his actions off screen. But there is a also a serious side to his personality, that gets expressed so well in his renderings of “Dukhi Mann Mere. . .” (‘Funtoosh’, 1956), “Beqaraar Dil Tu Gaaye Ja. . .” (‘Door Ka Raahi’, 1971), “Zindagi Ke Safar Mein Guzar Jaate Hain Jo Maqaam. . .” (‘Aap Ki Kasam’, 1974), “Jin Raaton Ki Bhor Nahin Hai. . .” (‘Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein’, 1964), and so many more such poignant songs that only could be done by him. Listen to “Koi Hamdam Na Rahaa. . .” (‘Jeevan Naiya’, 1936) rendered by Ashok Kumar, and then its reprisal sung by Kishore in 1961 “Jhumroo”. The two renditions are dimensions apart – the depth and emotion in the 1961 rendering has no measure, in comparison to the 1936 version.

His reverence for KL Saigal is legendary. It is recounted by Ashok Kumar himself in an interview. In his teen years, Kishore would sit outside the recording studio when Saigal Sb’s recordings were in progress. Sometimes Saigal Sb would ask him to sing. And when the young Kishore finished, he was given 4 annas (25 paise) as reward. It would make the young man immeasurably happy.

Continuing, Ashok Kumar narrates that in his home, Kishore had a temple room set aside with a photo portrait of Saigal Sb, where he lighted a diya every day, and paid respects to his idol. The floor of this temple room was a platform made of wood that was raised 6 inches above the actual flooring. No one, including Kishore Kumar himself, was allowed to enter this room with any kind of footwear. Once, Ashok Kumar was passing by and he had something important about which he wanted to talk urgently with Kishore. He came in. Kishore was in the temple room, lighting the diya for his daily prayers to Saigal Sb. In the hurry of his urgency, and that the matter was just a two minutes conversation, Ashok Kumar forgot to remove his shoes and stepped into the room. As he started to speak, Kishore turned around, and saw Ashok Kumar standing there with his shoes on. He immediately threw the lighted diya itself, that was in his hands, at the legs of Ashok Kumar, and asked him to immediately exit the temple room.

Coming to today’s song. The peculiarity of Kishore Da’s career runs into multiple dimensions. His prolific engagements with films – playback singer, actor, producer, director, lyricist, music director; I would dare say that no other film persona has touched upon such a gamut of the various ways he connected with and contributed to cinema. His film ‘Badhti Ka Naam Daadhi’ (1974) is about Kishore Kumar, playing himself on screen, producing a film titled ‘Badhti Ka Naam Daadhi’ – what more to say. 🙂 🙂

His comic roles vs his serious roles – quite a handle on the entire spectrum of emotions. Going from haywire films like ‘Half Ticket’ (1962) to poignantly moving essays like ‘Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein’ (1964) and ‘Door Ka Raahi’ (1971).

There is one more peculiarity, which of course has been discussed and mentioned often on this blog. I bring forth the topic of Kishore Kumar lip syncing the playback voice of other singers, for himself on screen. Now, this is a very interesting phenomena. An accomplished singer, who is also an actor, and who almost always sings playback for himself when performing on screen, has surprisingly enough, also performed on the playback voice of other mainline singers. I present below the complete list of 18 such songs from Hindi films, in which another prominent singer is providing the playback to Kishore Da on screen. I am sure this is a record that may never be equalled by any other singer-actor. These are,

As you can see, most of the honours are done by Mohammed Rafi and Manna Dey, one song in the voice of SD Batish, and then one song in the voice of Asha Bhosle (yes. . . 🙂 ). This list of 18 songs is taken from the book ‘Gaata Rahe Mera Dil. . ‘, a definitive compilation of Kishore Kumar songs by Kamal Dhiman. As you can see, of these 18, thirteen songs are already covered on our blog. Today, I bring on one more of this special category songs. And this one is a special song in itself – we have Mahendra Kapoor giving playback to Kishore Kumar. I am sure this will come as a surprise. 🙂

Of this list of 18 songs, thirteen are already showcased on our blog. The fourteenth comes on board today, leaving four more from this category to be posted.

Today’s song is from the film ‘Albela Mastaana’ from 1967. The song is a duet sung by Mahendra Kapoor and Usha Mangeshkar. On screen, the song is performed by Kishore Kumar and Asha Nadkarni. Songs of this film are written by Prem Dhawan and the music is by N Datta. And without further ado, I would suggest you listen to this song, and get this rare flavor of the one and only instance of Mahendra Kapoor giving playback to Kishore Kumar.


Song – Hum Ne To Dil Bichha Diya Tumhaari Raah Mein (Albela Mastaana) (1967) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor, Usha Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – N Datta
Mahendra Kapoor + Usha Mangeshkar

Lyrics

hum ne to dil bichhaa diya
tumhaari raah mein
oo oo oo
hum ne to dil bichhaa diya
tumhaari raah mein
hum ne utha ke rakh liya
hum ne utha ke rakh liya
is ko nigaah mein
hum ne to dil bichhaa diya
tumhaari raah mein

baahon pe meri jhoom ke
gesu bikher do
baahon pe meri jhoom ke
gesu bikher do
dheere se koi pyaar ka
naghma chhed do
dil ko hamaare baandh lo
dil ko hamaare baandh lo
zulf e siaah mein
hum ne to dil bichhaa diya
tumhaari raah mein

meri har ik nazar mein hai
teri hi justju
meri har ik nazar mein hai
teri hi justju
har ek saans mein basi
teri hi aarzoo
tera hi dard hai chhupa
tera hi dard hai chhupa
har ek aah mein
hum ne to dil bichhaa diya
tumhaari raah mein

jo tum miley
to zindagi haseen ban gayi
jo tum miley
to zindagi haseen ban gayi
duniya hamaare pyaar ki
rangeen ban gayi
donon jahaan bhula diye
donon jahaan bhula diye
tumhaari chaah mein
hum ne to dil bichhaa diya
tumhaari raah mein
hum ne to dil bichhaa diya
tumhaari raah mein

हमने तो दिल बिछा दिया

ओ ओ ओ
हमने तो दिल बिछा दिया
तुम्हारी राह में
हमने उठा के रख लिया

इसको निगाह में
हमने तो दिल बिछा दिया

बाहों पे मेरी झूम के
गेसू बिखेर दो
बाहों पे मेरी झूम के
गेसू बिखेर दो
धीरे से कोई प्यार का
नग़मा छेड़ दो
दिल को हमारे बांध लो
दिल को हमारे बांध लो
जुल्फ ए सियाह में
हमने तो दिल बिछा दिया
तुम्हारी राह में

मेरी हर इक नज़र में
तेरी ही जुस्तजू
मेरी हर इक नज़र में
तेरी ही जुस्तजू
हर एक सांस में बसी
तेरी ही आरज़ू
तेरा ही दर्द है छुपा
तेरा ही दर्द है छुपा
हर एक आह में
हमने तो दिल बिछा दिया
तुम्हारी राह में

जो तुम मिले
तो ज़िंदगी हसीन बन गई
जो तुम मिले
तो ज़िंदगी हसीन बन गई
दुनिया हमारे प्यार की
रंगीन बन गई
दोनों जहान् भुला दिये
दोनों जहान् भुला दिये
तुम्हारी चाह में
हमने तो दिल बिछा दिया
तुम्हारी राह में
हमने तो दिल बिछा दिया
