Blog ten year challenge (2010-2020)- Song Number 85
————————————————–

Atul ji has rightly mentioned in his post regarding BTYC posts coming up regularly, having taken precedence over other projects in the process. I think, on the other hand it is also helping bring movies bring closer to ‘Yippeeee’ and also helping movies getting noticed after an interval of couple or few years where the movies earlier were having some songs posted and took a back-seat thereafter without any reason.

In some cases where many movies made their debut ten years ago and were forgotten thereafter after getting only one song posted, the ‘Blog Ten Year Challenge’ has been like a ‘boon’ for them. In turn it also gives a chance to readers to visit the songs of movie like these and recall their songs which were played then and also recall some fond memories if any.

Consider the case of one of the two movies due for ‘BTYC’ today – ‘Mahaan-1983’ which made its debut on the blog ten years back and so far, has only one song posted on the blog.

Let us have a look on the six songs posted on the blog ten years back on this day on
22.09.2010;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Raaton ki neend chheen lee aankhon ke intezaar ne Shokhiyaan-1951 All Songs covered
Teri kaafir nigaah kar gayi dil ko tabaah Miss Coca Cola-1955 All Songs covered
Yaad karoon tori batiyaan Mr Lambu-1956 All Songs covered

Mujhe gale se lagaa lo bahut udaas hoon main Aaj Aur Kal-1963 All Songs covered
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai Mahaan-1983 01 song posted

‘Mahaan-1983’ had some good songs like the one ‘Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai’ already posted on the blog and ‘pyaar mein dil pe maar de goli’ being the most popular song from the movie. ‘Ye din to aata hai ek din jawaani mein’ sung by Pancham and Asha Bhonsle was the other song frequently played and like then.

Music for ‘Mahaan-1983’ was composed by R.D. Burman.

I had not watched this movie then and have not watched it so far, so can’t say much about the movie.

When I noticed that this movie was due for BTYC today I went through its songs and I have selected one other song (which required more time from me to complete the ‘baat’:) ), but then noticed this lesser heard (I don’t remember to have heard this song earlier) song sung by Kishore Kumar and have selected this song for today’s presentation.

The song is lip-synced on screen by Amitabh Bachchan and also seen in picturization of the song is Zeenat Aman and also seen is a Puppet (of Ramdas Padhye the famous ventriloquist, I guess I am correct) with them.

‘Mahaan-1983’ had total seven songs in it all written by Anjaan and composed by R.D. Burman.

So far, only one song from ‘Mahaan-1983’ have been posted on the blog;

Song Posted On
Jidhar dekhoon teri tasweer nazar aati hai 22.09.2010

I am not giving details about the movie and other songs too, and holding them for a detailed post with other song of the movie to be presented in the future on the blog.

(Unlike the song which finishes ‘aadhi baat’ I am not completing my ‘baat’ here)

Let us now enjoy today’s song from this movie. 🙂

(Lyrics noted are as per audio link which has three stanzas whereas the video link doesn’t have the second stanza as given in the audio link.)

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 69
———————————————————————————–

Ten years ago, the blog was covering six songs every day and seven songs every fourth day. So I was a bit surprised to note that “only” five songs were covered on 3 September 2010. But there awsa very good reasohn for that, which will become clear during our discussion here.

Here is the list of the five songs that were covered on 3n september 2010:-

Blog post no Song Movie-Year remarks
2896 Ab to aa jaao balam Poonam 1952 YIPPEED
2897 Kaare badraa tu na jaa na jaa Shikast 1953 YIPPEED
2898 Ye jawaani ye haseen raat Khuda khair kare Khoobsoorat Dhokha 1959 4 Songs discussed out of 7
2899 Saamne ye kaun aayaa dil mein huyi halchal Jawaani Deewaani 1972 YIPPEED
2900 Kyaa huaa teraa waadaa wo qasam wo iraadaa Hum Kisise Kam Nahin 1977 Blog century post. 7 songs discussed (out of 9)

We can see from the above that three out of five movies that were taken up on 3 september 2010 have got YIPPEED in the bblog by now. So that leaves us with just two movies that are eligible for “Blog Ten Year CHallenge” today (3 September 2020).

“Ham Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1977) is one of those movies. I notice that this musical blockbuster movie had made its debut in the blog on 3 september 2010. And thatsong that was discussed was a century song for the blog ! And the song was the National Aawrd winning song Kyaa huaa teraa waadaa wo qasam wo iraadaa . A movie making its debut in the blog with a blog century song ! It shows the musical calibre of the song in general and the entire movie album in particular.

Music lovers are unanimous in agreeing that “Ham Kisi Se Kam Nahin” (1977) had a stunning array of songs, that have remaiined popular to this day.

The movie had nine songs in it. Seven of them have been covered in the blog so far. Here are their details:-

Blog post no Song Date remarks
2900 Kyaa huaa teraa waadaa wo qasam wo iraadaa 3 september 2010 Debut song of movie. Blog century post
5892 Ye ladka haaye Allah kaisa hai deewaana 28 April 2012
8454 Chaand mera dil chaandni ho tum 2 August 2013

13400 Bachna ae haseenon lo main aa gaya 5 July 2017 Blog century post
14162 Aa dil kya mehfil hai tere kadmon mein 13 March 2018
14833 Mil gaya ham ko saathi mil gaya 10 January 2019

We can notice that another song from the movie, viz Bachna ae haseenon lo main aa gaya was also a blog century song. And the writeup of that song was a special writeup by Sudhir Jee. It gave details of the musicians who were involved in creating that musical masterpiece.

When the name of this movie crops up, my mind immediately goes back to the second half of 1977. My Matriculation examinations were due in February March 1978 and like a sincere conscientious student that I was, I was seriously busy preparing for that Board Examination of Bihar State Board. Those were the days when I had no distractions. The last movie that I had watched in a movie hall was “Zindagi Zindagi”(1972) in 1972 and after that I had not watched any movies in movie halls.

There was a radio set at home, a big valve radio, but that was out of order because mice had made their home inside the warm cozy cabinet of the TELERAD 4 band radio and had damaged the valves. And my father had very wisely not bothered to get the radio repaired. So no radio commentary and no Radio Ceylon and Vividh Bharati distraction either.

But filmy music blaring out of loudspeakers was a distraction no one could guard against. These days we talk of noise pollution and disturbance to people because of loudspeakers, but no one bothered those days. Playing film songs on loudspeakers in full volume day and night, no matter what, was the norm in those parts of India. And what was the movie whose songs were the most popular with those loudspeaker playing enthusiasts ? “Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin” ! I would be trying to concentrate on my studies and my eardrums would receive songs of the movie one after the other. What rubbish songs these are, The standards of Hindi movie songs have gone to the dogs- These were the thoughts that crossed my mind while receiving constant bombardment of songs of this movie.

Fortunately, the songs of this movie failed to distract me from my studies and I was reasonably well prepared when the final exams were held in early 1978.

Having appeared for the examination, it was time for the results. Marks obtained in the examination determined which college one joined. St Xavier’s College, Ranchi was the coveted college not only for Ranchi, but for entire Bihar. Getting admission in this college was considered a matter of prestige.

I had gone to my native place after the examination. I received a letter (or was it a telegram )informing me that I had passed in first division. Detailed marks would be known only later. My father, who was also there in the village, discussed this matter with a distant relative of his, who was a progressive villager and also the headmaster cum only teacher of the only Village school. We must go meet Father XYZ of the school ABC, the progressive villager suggested. So we went some six miles by walk, and met the Father. Our distant relative informed him that this kid, his close relative had passed Matriculation examination in First division. He needs to get admitted in Ranchi’s St Xavier’s college. You know the principal of that college, so please write a letter of recommendation. The father was reluctant saying only first division may not be enough, percentage of marks also matter. But repeated insistence by my relative forced him to act. He took out a small portable typewriter (I had never seen such a modern looking typewriter) and typed out a letter. He then took an envelope, sealed it after putting the letter inside it and on the top addressed in to the Principal of St Xavier’s College. We thanked him and went back to our village.

When I went back to Ranchi and got the detailed marksheet etc, I got the form of St Xavier’s college, filled it and submitted it there. My father had decided that the recommendation letter would be used only in case I failed to get admission on my own.

When the first list of selected candidates was put up on St Xavier’s College notice board, my name was very much there. So there was no need for that recommendation letter. Nevertheless, my father opened the letter and read what was written in the recommendation letter. We found out that the father had written a very nice letter highly recommending my case for admission. But I was happy that we did not have to use such means (sifaarish) to get admission.

After I got admission in the college, I got “freedom” under the impression that I had matured being a college student. I used this new found “freedom” quite irresponsibly, I must say. I started to watch movies by bunking classes. It was in this movie watching spree that I watched “Hu Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1979) during its second run, in 1978 or 1979, in a movie hall called “Sandhya” which was located on the same road where my college was located. By that time I had warmed up to the songs of this movie. I did not find the movie any great shakes though. I did not think then that Rishi Kapoor was really a better dancer than Tariq. I had my sympathies with Tariq.

Much to my good luck, I somehow survived by the skin of my teeth academically despite acting so recklessly. Today I have become so “mature” that I cannot spare time to watch most movies. How I wish I had some of my present “maturity” during late 1970s as well. 🙂

Today, exactly ten years after “Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1977) made its debut in the blog, here is another rollicking song from “Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahin”(1977). This song is sung by Kishore Kumar, with Asha Bhonsle chiming in towards the end of the song. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman. The song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Kajal Kiran.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 67
———————————————————————————–

Ten years ago on this day (viz on 31 August 2010), the blog saw six songs from six movies get represented in the day.
Here are the details:-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Ae jaane e jigar dil mein samaane aajaa Aaraam-1951 All songs covered
Ek main hoon ek meri beqasi ki shaam hai Taraanaa-1951 All songs covered

Four of these movies have already been represented. Two unYIPPEED movies have one thing in common. Both of them made their debuts ten years ago.

One of these movies, viz “Naache Naagin Baaje Been”(1960) has already been taken up under “Blog Ten Year Challenge”. Here is a song from the other movie viz “Pyaar Ki Kahaani”(1971).

Younger music lovers may not think much of this movie. In fact they may not even be aware of this movie. As an “oldtimer”, I had heard of this movie as part of a string of flop movies that Amitabh Bachchan has figured in. The movie, directed by Ravikant Nagaich, had Amitabh Bachchan, Farida Jalal, Anil Dhawan, Tanuja, Prem Chopra, Bipin Gupta, Madhu Chanda, Praveen Paul, Agha, Mukri, Mohan Choti, Paintal,m Gulshan Bawra, Rashid Khan, Birbal, Yunus Parwez etc in it.

The movie had five songs in it. Three songs have been covered till now. Here are the details of the songs that have been covered so far:-

Song Posted On
Koi aur duniyaa mein tumsaa haseen hai 31 August 2010
Ek patey ki baat bataaun 11 october 2013
Ek khabar aayi suno ek khabar aayi 4 April 2015

Here is the fourth song from “Pyaar Ki Kahaani”(1971). This song is sung by Lata, Usha Mangeshkar and chorus. The song is picturised as a Saheli teasing a lady genre of song. I can identify Tanuja. Other than that I cannot identify others. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify them.

Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

This post is the 79th post for the month of August 2020. It stands nowhere in comparison to 176 posts published during August 2010. Nevertheless, this is the highest figure for a month in well over two years since April 2018. Hopefully we will be able to surpass this figure in the next month.

Blog Day :

4403 Post No. : 15790 Movie Count :

Hullo Atuldom

7th August- remembrance day of Gulshan Kumar Mehta. It seems like just recently that my husband read the news of his demise from the morning papers and asked me who it was? I just rattled out a list of songs that were written by him and he was surprised that almost all the songs that I mentioned he knew he had heard but without knowing who had written it or other details about the song. Today is this Gulshan Kumar Mehta’s 11th anniversary. He is known popularly as Gulshan Bawra.

The name “Baawra” was goven to him by distributor Shantilal Dave who could not believe that the then 19 year old “Baawra” could write such meaningful lyrics. And this moniker “Baawra” stuck.

As I sat to write this post I found a link on youtube that gave me 45 minutes of Gulshan Bawra songs under the title “Best of Gulshan Bawra” and contained the following songs: tumhe-yaad-hogaa; Aapse humko bicchde huye ek zamaana beet gaya; Hamne jo dekhe sapne; Waada karle saajna tere bina main na rahoon; Le chal le chal mere jeewan saathhi; Jeewan ke har mod pe mil jaayenge hamsafar; Tumko mere dil ne pukaara hai; Yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi.

Of the 10 songs in that list I didn’t know only two:- “dil sambhaale sambhalta nahin” and “beete hue din kuch aise hi hain”. But of course all the 10 are present on our blog. And 141 out of the 380 odd songs that he has written, are present in the blog. His first outing in movies was in the 1959 movie “Satta Bazaar” (1959) with the classic ‘tumhe yaad hoga kabhi hum mile the’. His career spanned almost four decades and we have a range of songs to entertain ys from the patriotic Aaj hai do october ka din and ‘mere desh ki dharti’; melodiously romantic ‘chaand ko kya maloom’ and funnily romantic ‘peenewaalon ko peene ka bahana chahiye’. His ‘dukki pe dukki ho’ is as popular as ‘dilbar mere kab tak mujhe’. And I remember having seen him on screen lip syncing ‘deewane hai deewano ko na darr chahiye’ and also enjoying the party in ‘Parivaar’ when Nanda sang ‘aaj hai do october ka din’. He was there on screen in Manoj Kumar directed ‘Upkaar’ as the halwai’s son. His songs have been put to music by Kalyanji Anandji, R D Burman, Shankar Jaikishan. He was awarded the best lyricist Filmfare award for “mere desh ki dharti” and “yaari hai imaan mera yaar meri zindagi” which also topped that years Binaca Geetmala.

Thinking of this lyricist on his anniversary with a song from the 1984 release “Andar Baahar”. 1984 was when I had discovered the new crop of good looking actors Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor, Sunny Deol etc. They looked good and danced/ acted reasonably well too. So I could request my dad to see this movie. He was also a fan of movies which were of the ‘masala’ genre and had some good songs for added pleasure and relaxation. I could never convince him to see any of the Arty movies, but that is another story.

“Andar Baahar” was a movie produced by Romu Sippy and directed by Raj N. Sippy. It had a cast of Jackie Shroff- Anil Kapoor- Parikshit Sahni- Anita Raaj- Danny. This was Moon Moon Sen’s Hindi debut (one of the reasons my dad agreed to come for the movie, he wanted to see Suchitra Sen’s daughter).

The movie had a very simple storyline:- A cop-n-crook story. The crooks led by Danny crack the safe of a bank, and one of them turns greedy and tries to shoot the others out of his way. The sound gets cop Ajay Sahni (Parikshat Sahni) to the spot and one of the team of crooks runs away with the loot. Danny escapes from prison and threatens the absconding Gulshan Grover of killing his sister if he doesn’t return the loot. Gulshan squeals to the cops and inspector Ajay and his friend Ravi Khanna (Jackie) reach the spot. Only this time, in the operations, inspector Ajay is fatally wounded and now inspector Ravi seeks vengeance. With the permission of the commissioner he brings the wounded crook Raja (Anil Kapoor), who is still in his custody, to help him track Shera (Danny) Gulshan etc and bring the movie to a close. In the process Ravi Khanna finds a friend in Raja who takes Ajay’s place in his life.

Now since there are friends in the movie it is mandatory to have a song where the heroes proclaim their love for each other. This is sung by Shailendra Singh and Suresh Wadkar. R D Burman is the music composer. The song has a stamp of RD all over it:- great opening piece and in between the mukhda and antara. We can also hear the harmonica (popularly called mouth organ) through the song.

Incidentally it also happens to be Suresh Wadkar’s 65th birthday. He has been active since 1977 – ‘Paheli’ and ‘Gaman’ (1978). His voice was different from the reigning voices of that time. He also is trained in classical music which is evident in “Saanjh Dhale Gagan Taley” and his numerous songs which need a clear voice at high pitch. We have 71 songs of his on the blog. We have a lot more songs out there for us to learn the range that he can sing in. For today we shall hear him here in this song and wish him a very Happy Birthday.

N.B.: There is a sad version to this song, video of which I am unable to locate.

I cut my HFM teeth in late 1960s when old order was giving way to new. Old order meant Rafi as the male playback singer of choice, Shammi Kapoor as the heart throb, and Shankar Jaikishan as the music directors of choice for big banners. In a matter of a few years or so, the musical order was turned upside down. When the dus settled, we found Shammi Kapoor being replaced by Rajesh Khanna, Rafi by Kishore Kumar and Shankar Jaikishan by R D Burman.

I became a young music lover sometime in mid to late 1960s. From being used to Rafi voice blaring from loudspeakers, I found a new male voice beginning to blare out of loudspeakers. Alongwith rest of the population, I too was mesmerised by this voice. The vesry first time I listened to the voice of Kishore Kumar, i loved it. the song was the iconic “Padosan”(1968) song-“mere saamne waali khidki”.

Rajesh Khanna meanwhile took the movie world by storm with “Aradhana”(1969), and that was followed by a string of hits. I would have loved to watch all those Rajesh Khanna songs, but I ended up watching “Haathi Mere Saathi”(1971) and “Apna Desh”(1971), that is all. By the time my movie watchin spree began in right earnest in june 1978, Rajesh Khanna had lost his crown as the first superstar of Hindi movies. That crown had passed on to Amitabh Bachchan.

Unlike Rajesh Khanna, Kishore Kumar never lost the crown of the top male playback singer. He continued to hold this crown troughout his life, till 1987. What longevity ! It is not easy to hold on to the top spot, as we see from the example of Rajesh Khanna. If Kishore Kumar could do it for close to two decades till his death, they this speaks highly of his durability and saleability. In fact, I feel that he almost singlehandedly held up the quality of playback singing during 1980s after all other leading playback singers had passed away.

On the occasion of Kishore Kumar’s 91st birth anniversary today on 4 august 2020 here is an archtypical Rajesh Khanna song sung by Kishore Kumar. The song is a duet from “Shahzaada”(1972). This movie was directed by K Shankar for Amar Chhaaya, Bombay. The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Raakhee, Madan Puri, Veena, Karan Dewan, Pandari Bai, Jairaj, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Gulshan Baawra, Badri Prasad, Halam, Varalakshmi, Shreeram Shastri etc in it. The movie had five songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Shehzaada”(1972) to appear in the blog. the song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. The song is penned by Rajinder Krishan. Music is composed by RD Burman. This roothhna manaana genre of song is picturised on Rajesh Khanna and Raakhi.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog Day :

4400 Post No. : 15779

Less than a week ago, we were commemorating the death anniversary of Rafisaab on this blog. And here we are today to discuss another singing legend, this time on his birth anniversary. Of course, it’s none other than Kishore Kumar, another much-loved personality in the Hindi film industry.

As I said in my recent post on Rafisaab, I am a huge Rafisaab fan. But that doesn’t mean I’m not fond of Kishore Kumar.

I know some people have this “Rafi or Kishore” binary, but, thankfully for me, I don’t. I absolutely love both of them, and refuse to play one against the other. Why would one do that?

We’re extremely lucky to have had both singers in the industry. Why would we pick one, and exclude the other? Are our hearts so small? Is our love for music so narrow?

I, for one, thoroughly enjoy listening to both of them – and do listen a lot to both.

But today is Kishore da’s day, so the rest of this post is about him.

To call Kishore da a singing legend is absolutely true. But to call him only a singing legend doesn’t do justice to him at all.

Kishore da was an all-rounder par excellence – actor, director, producer, composer, writer, in addition to being a singing legend. So in a way, if I might very loosely use a cricketing analogy, he was Sir Garry Sobers to Rafisaab’s Bradman. 🙂 Bradman is considered the greatest batsman ever, whereas Sobers is considered the greatest all-rounder ever.

As with Rafisaab, I’ve written several posts here on Kishore da too. For me, he was an essential part of my pre-teen, and teen years, when he absolutely reigned. And from then, right till his death in 1987, he was the numero uno male singer in terms of popularity.

Much of my early musical experiences invariably had Kishore Kumar in them. It’s not like one had much of a choice in the 1970s – if you were listening to current songs, or watching current movies, you almost HAD to listen to Kishore songs. 🙂

I grew up in that atmosphere, and knew most Kishore songs of that era by heart. All three stanzas, if there were three.

Many of the hit movies at that time were Rajesh Khanna’s, but Kishore Kumar songs were big hits even in non-Rajesh films. Songs like “teri duniya se”, “dekha na haaye re”, “musafir hoon yaaron”, “ye jeevan hai”, “meri bheegi bheegi si”, “geet gaata hoon main” and many more. As I said, he just ruled at that time, so the actor in the film didn’t even matter.

Almost every one of my classmates in school was a Kishore fan, with the exception of one, who was a KL Saigal fan. In fact I first heard of KL Saigal only from him.

I too joined the bandwagon – and in the lunch break, we’d have a quick lunch and sing songs. Mostly Kishore, of course.

In those days, I had this habit of having ONE favourite song which I’d sing non-stop for a few days. It could be for 3-4 days, or a week or even 2 weeks. But I’d sing it non-stop, probably to the annoyance of others around me. 🙂

Again they were mostly Kishore songs.

I distinctly remember “jaane jaa, dhoondhta phir raha”, “chala jaata hoon”, “o mere dil ke chain”, “aadmi jo kehta hai” and “tere bina zindagi se koi”, though there were many more.

So now, when I have SO many fond musical memories of Kishore Kumar of those days, how can I POSSIBLY turn my back on him, just because I also became a Rafisaab fan later? Sorry, can’t do that.

At that time, I didn’t know too many Kishore songs from the 1950s. But as and when I got to listen to them, I’d just fall in love with them. How can you not fall in love with “piya piya piya”, or “o nigaahen mastaana”, or his songs of Funtoosh (1955) or Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958)?

I feel, in the 1980s, he lost a little bit of that softness in his voice that he had in earlier decades. But some of that could also be to do with the type of songs he was called upon to sing. After all, even in that decade, he did sing songs like “lehron ki tarah yaadein”, “manzilein apni jagah” and “o yaara”.

And, if he hadn’t passed away in 1987, he could have easily continued to sing for many more years.
Even “o yaara” was from the 1987 film, Kaash.

But this is only one aspect of Kishore da.

He is also well-known as an actor, mostly in comedy lead roles of the 1950s and 1960s. I’ve seen many of those films – and I really like them.

The thing is, Kishore had no hang-ups, and could do the most crazy scenes on screen. Dances, songs, impersonations, anything.

I don’t know anyone else who was so versatile – the closest is possibly IS Johar or Mehmood.

But look at “kuen mein kood ke mar jaana” from Parivar (1956). That’s sheer Kishore genius.

And of course, “aake seedhi lagi” from Half-Ticket (1962) where he sings both in a male voice (for Pran) and female voice (for himself, disguised as a woman).

There are many more Kishore songs picturised on himself, that are pure fun – “main Bangali chhokra”, “CAT Cat”, “paanch rupaiya barah aana”, “meri pyaari bindu”, “is duniya mein pyaare, do kaam karna” , “guni jano bhakt jano” immediately come to mind.

Having said that, to assume that Kishore never took anything seriously wouldn’t be entirely true. Yes, most of his roles were comedy roles. And in real life too, his co-artistes often said he would enliven proceedings with his jokes and pranks. And yet, he could make meaningful cinema too.

Two films I like a lot are both produced and directed by Kishore Kumar. Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein (1964) and Door Ka Raahi (1971). Not only are the songs (composed by Kishore himself) excellent, but the storyline makes you think too. Especially Door Ka Raahi, which is unconventional in how it explores various facets of life, through the eyes of a traveler.

What more can I say about Kishore Kumar?

If the film industry is primarily about entertainment, Kishore Kumar was the ultimate entertainer. Even his live concerts were highly entertaining because he could connect very easily with his audience. No wonder he was loved so much.

There’s a lot more one can say about Kishore Kumar, but I will move on to the song for today.

This is from the film Harjaee (1981). In 2017, I posted a song on Kishore’s death anniversary from this film. Today I’m posting a song from this film on his birth anniversary.

I’m quite fond of both these songs, because they are vintage Kishore-Pancham (RD Burman) for me.

Kishore and Pancham had a long and extremely fruitful association. They were very close friends too, since Kishore, being very close to SD Burman, knew Pancham right from his childhood.

This is what I wrote about the film Harjaee (1981) on that post.

I remember seeing this film at that time – haven’t seen it since. Contrary to the typical multi-starrer, masala films of the time, this film, starring Randhir Kapoor and Tina Munim, was a proper tear-jerker. From what I remember, Randhir Kapoor is a carefree, prankster type of guy who pretends to have cancer, just to get Tina Munim to fall for him. His parents too believes his story and get Tina to be sympathetic towards him. Then tragedy strikes. Randhir Kapoor gets really diagnosed with cancer. The rest of the story is how he copes with it, how Tina copes with it, how their respective families cope with it.
The film has some good songs – like many Randhir Kapoor films do. Whether his films did well or not, there used to invariably be at least one hit song (often more) in each of his films. I remember during my schooldays, I personally didn’t mind Randhir Kapoor films at all – though I was clearly much in the minority at the time.

While watching this song “ye rut hai haseen” it struck me that this is yet ANOTHER song where the hero sings a song at a party, and makes the heroine cry or feel very uncomfortable. Off the top of my head, I remember songs in similar situations in Do Badan, Teesri Manzil, Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka and Brahmachari . Maybe Atul should have a separate category for this. 🙂

Wish Kishore da a very happy birthday though he is not here with us anymore. He is probably up there singing to Pancham’s tunes, songs of Anand Bakshi’s lyrics, picturised on Rajesh Khanna. 🙂

And, for old times’ sake, singing to SD Burman’s tunes, songs of Majrooh, picturised on Dev Anand. 🙂

Kishore da, you will always remain in our hearts.

Thanks for all the entertainment, and for enriching our lives.


Song-Ye rut hai haseen dard bhi hai jawaan (Harjaayee)(1981) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Vitthalbhai Patel, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
harjaee nahin hum

milna tha hum mil hi gaye
phool pyaar ke khil hi gaye
milna tha hum mil hi gaye
phool pyaar ke khil hi gaye
ho
dil se yehi doon main dua
milke na ho koi judaa
ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
harjaee nahin hum

sapne the sapne hi rahe
apne jab apne na rahe
sapne the sapne hi rahe
apne jab apne na rahe
ho
roothe ho tum kaun suney
koi pyaar ka shikhwa gilaa
ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
harjaee nahin hum

tan mann preet ke deep jaley
aaye seher na raat dhaley
tan mann preet ke deep jaley
aaye seher na raat dhaley

phool se khusboo kaise judaa
ye rut hai haseen

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s song is sure to get a “How Come?” reaction from all concerned, even Atulji and Sudhirji will probably include it in the category of “How come this song was not posted earlier?” and “How did I forget to post this song earlier?”. Also I know we have fans of today’s song among the followers of the blog who will say “How did we miss it in all these 12 years of the blog?” I, who regularly try and send a song for the birthday and anniversary of the main actor in this song, also kept putting it off for God Knows what occasion!!!

But better late than never. And here is an all-time popular song.

There are hundreds of multi-version songs in filmdom. Usually we will have the same song sung as happy and sad, male- female, family reunion versions etc. Today’s is a hatke (different) multi-version song. It cannot be categorized as Happy-Sad or Male -female versions. In both versions of this song all the characters involved lip-sync. There are two couples, hence four singers. And finally, the mood of the songs are “roothna-manaana” and/or “teasing song”. I won’t call it eve-teasing as one song has the girls teasing the guys. There is equality here. 😉
The first version (in the movie) happens when the boys -Chuttan and Puttan land up accidentally in the house of Shaila (Aruna Irani) and she walks in, with her friend Poonam (Anjana -she was not yet Anjaana Mumtaz then). The girls have the upper hand in this version as they threaten the boys of handing them over to her father (Jeevan) or Poonam’s inspector brother (Chandrashekar). The song closes with the girls tying up the boys.

The second one is in Mahabaleswar where the boys are in hiding from their strict father (Ashok Kumar). I must mention here that I was reminded of this movie because of Guruji’s recent post where he mentioned the actress who played the mother character to Chuttan (Mehmood) and Puttan (Vinod Mehra). This movie “Do Phool” was a 1973 release which was directed by S. Ramanathan, a remake of the Tamil “Anubavi Raja Anubavi”. The movie had four songs written by Majrooh Sultanpuri which were set to music by R D Burman. Only one song from this movie Muthukodi kawaadi hadaa is present on the blog, posted way back in 2009.

Here is the next one today, which also happens to be Mehmood’s 16th anniversary. It is in the vocals of Asha, Usha, Kishore and Mehmood.

सागर से संगम ज़रूरी है ए
मैं तेरे बिन
अधूरा हूँ
तू मेरे बिन
अधूरी है
हो जैसे किरण और तारा
मिलन कब होगा हमारा
तू मौज मैं हूँ किनारा
मिलन कब होगा हमारा
हो ओ ओ मिलन कब होगा हमारा आ

तूने सूना आ
या ना सूना
मैं तेरा नाम लेता रहा
तूने सूना आ
या ना सूना
मैं तेरा नाम लेता रहा आ
तूने सुनी या ना सुनी
आवाज़ मैं ए ए
देता रहा
हो जो सांस ली दिल पुकारा
मिलन कब होगा हमारा
तू मौज मैं हूँ किनारा
मिलन कब होगा हमारा
हो ओ ओ मिलन कब होगा हमारा आ

जैसे किसी ई मंदिर में लोग
रख दें किसी की मूरत को
जैसे किसी मंदिर में लोग
रख दें किसी की मूरत को ओ ओ
दिल में बसा आ रक्खा है यूं
मैंने सजन की सूरत को
तेरी पूजा में पल पल गुज़ारा
मिलन कब होगा हमारा
तू मौज मैं हूँ किनारा
मिलन कब होगा हमारा आ
हो प्यासी है जीवन की धारा
मिलन कब होगा हमारा
हो ओ ओ मिलन कब होगा हमारा

Blog Day:

Hullo Atuldom

27th June- birth anniversary of our beloved Panchamda a.k.a RD Burman. We have many posts on this blog which gives us details of his birth, his lineage, and many many other trivia connected with how he got the nickname “Pancham”.

So without wasting time or as some people would like to say ‘zyaada footage khaaye bagair’ I will come straight to today’s song. It is from the 1989 released, Vidhu Vinod Chopra written-produced & directed “Parinda”. It had Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff, Anil Kapoor, and Nana Patekar in a rather grey role. Anupam Kher was there in a special appearance.

Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff played brothers. Anupam Kher played Anil Kapoor’s friend and Madhuri’s brother. Jackie Shroff works for the underworld chieftain Anna (Nana Patekar). Anil Kapoor returns from studying abroad and meets his childhood friend Anupam Kher who has become a police officer. He also witnesses his friend being shot down by the underworld and decides to avenge his death.

The movie is interspersed with the tender love and camaraderie that is shared between the brothers and their dreams of having a family complete with wife children etc. Today’s song is when the brothers are thinking of the impending marriage of Anil Kapoor with Madhuri.

“Parinda” had seven songs which were written by Khurshid Hallauri of which one is there on the blog, posted on 15th of May 2015. (It has a sad version which was posted in the comments by Prakashchandraji) There was also a comment there by Prakashchandraji:- “And Who is Khursheed Hallauri ??, the lyricist, Any one who has information about him, Please share with us.” This question still remains.

This movie was planned by Vinod Chopra after his low-budget suspense thriller “Khamosh” failed to find a distributor for theatrical release. “Parinda” received critical acclaim when released. It also won two National awards and five Filmfare awards. It was also selected to represent India at the Oscars that year.

I chose this particular song as it talks of a marriage and we have an active follower of this blog celebrating his anniversary today. He is a big fan of Pancham and his music so I hope he and his life-partner (also known as Satulite in Atuldom) like this song.

Thank You Panchamda for leaving us this fun song.

Lyrics

sehre mein dulha hoga,
ghoonghat mein dulhan hogi
haan sehre mein dulha hoga,
ghoongat mein dulhan hogi

masti mein naachenge yaar
ke ghar mein baaja bajega
sehre mein dulha hoga
ghoongat mein dulhan hogi
sehre mein dulha hoga,
ghoonghat mein dulhan hogi
masti mein naachenge yaar
ke ghar mein baaja bajega

ho o aayega jab din woh khushi ka
hosh rahega kisko kisika
hoo ghar aayegi bhaiyya ki dulhan
jhoom uthhega yeh ghar aangan
hey raat suhaani hogi,
chadhhti jawaani hogi

duniya deewaani hogi,
saath me rani hogi
karke sola singaar
ke ghar me baaja bajega

haan sehre mein dulha hoga,
ghoongat mein dulhan hogi
sehre mein dulha hoga,
he ghoongat mein dulhan hogi
masti mein naachenge yaar
ke ghar me baja bajega

poore honge armaan dil ke
honge khush dulhan se mil ke
pyaar se hongi pyaari baatein,
katt jaayengi pal mein raatein

haan saanson mein hogi jwaala
chaabhi hogi na hoga taala
saali hogi na saala,
saala hoga na saali

aaya hai tere dar pe sawaali
shirdiwaale sai baba
shirdiwaale sai baba
aaya hai tere dar pe sawaali
no no no bhaiyya
sawaali nahin saali saali
saali hogi na saala,
chaabi hoga na taala

saali hogi na saala,
chaabi hoga na taala
donon karenge pyaar
ke ghar mein baaja bajega

haan sehre mein dulha hoga,
ghoonghat mein dulhan hogi
sehre mein dulha hoga,
ghoonghat mein dulhan hogi
masti mein naachenge yaar
ke ghar mein baaja bajega

armaanon ki bagiya khilegi,
bhaiyya ko mere dulhan milegi
o o behne lagegi prem ki dhaara
paawan hoga jeewan saara

hoga jo poora saal
godi mein hoga laal
hoga jo poora saal
godi mein hoga laal
haan duniya dekhegi mera kamaal
ho chhorra ganga kinaare waalaa
ho chhorra ganga kinaare waalaa
o khaike paan banaaras waalaa
khuli jaaye band akal kaa taalaa
phir to aisa kare kamaal
seedhi karde sabki chaal

arre arre arre
chaal nahin gadhe
saal saal
hoga jo poora saal
godi mein hoga laal
hoga jo poora saal
godi mein hoga laal
chhota sukhi parivaar
ke ghar mein baaja bajega
sehre mein dulha hoga
ghoonghat mein dulhan hogi
sehre mein dulha hoga
ghoonghat mein dulhan hogi
masti mein naachenge yaar
ke ghar mein baaja bajega
haan baaja bajega
ha ha
arre baaja bajega
baaja bajega

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 92 # R.D. Burman – Year 1977
———————————————–———————————————

It is another important day today for all of us today (27 june 2020). Remembering the ‘genius’ Music Director Rahul Dev Burman – ‘Pancham’ on his eighty-first birth anniversary today.

As a tribute to him I am presenting a song composed by him from the movie ‘Jeewan Mukt-1977’.

I do not know how many of our readers are aware of this movie and its’ songs. There may be many, and surely most Pancham fans are aware of the movie and its songs.

However, I became aware of this movie only six years ago when I got my copy of HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). Since then, I was longing to share the songs from this movie. But somehow it didn’t work out, mainly because I was unable to locate the songs of this movie.

I had never listened to the songs of this movie earlier. For that matter I had never even heard the name of this movie. This movie must have sunk badly at the box office and as a result it must have ended up becoming an obscure movie of its time.

The movie had some beautiful songs in it that were created by none other than the genius music director Rahul Dev Burman.

When I listened to the songs of this movie during the preparation of this post, I liked them very much. And I hope that our readers too will find the song enjoyable.

This is a movie of 1977. 1977 is also an important year in the history of India (socio-politically). However here on the blog we will only discuss the movies and music (of Pancham) of that year.

Some of us will readily recall the blockbuster musical hit of that year i.e. ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’, which also had music by R D Burman.

Then there were other movies like ‘Kinaara’, ‘Mukti’, ‘Kitaab’, ‘Karm’ etc where the music was composed by R.D. Burman.
Then there were movies like ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Dharam Veer’, ‘Aap Ki Khaatir’, ‘Yehi Hai Zindagi’, ‘Doosra Aadmi’, ‘Apnaapan’, ‘Dulhan Wahi Jo Piyaa Man Bhaaye’, ‘Khoon Pasinaa’, ‘Swami’, ‘Anurodh’, etc etc… where the other music directors composed the music and the music of these movies too were very popular.

The song that ranked at number one of that year’s annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list was from the previous years’ ‘Laila Majnu’, and in 1978 it was from ‘Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se’. The song ‘Kyaa huaa tera waadaa’ from ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’ ranked at number three in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1978.

None of the songs from today’s movie ‘Jeewan Mukt’ featured in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1977’. (or 1978).

In 1977 there were as many as ten movies where R D Burman sas the music director. Details of the representation of these movies in the blog is show here :-

Sno. Title Year Passed by Censor Board Lyricist Represented on the Blog
1 Chaandi Sonaa 1977 25.03.1977 Majrooh Sultanpuri Yes
2 Chalaa Muraari Hero Banane 1977 08.11.1977 Yogesh Yes
3 Chaltaa Purzaa 1977 16.06.1977 Anand Bakshi Yes
4 Darling Darling 1977 11.05.1977 Anand Bakshi Yes
5 Ham Kisise Kam Nahin 1977 19.08.1977 Majrooh Sultanpuri Yes
6 Jeewan Mukt 1977 08.08.1977 Yogesh NO
7 Karm 1977 27.04.1977 Bharat Vyas, Rajkavi Tulsi Yes/Yippeeee’ed
8 Kinaaraa 1977 21.03.1977 Gulzar Yes/Yippeeee’ed
9 Kitaab 1977 31.12.1977 Gulzar Yes/Yippeeee’ed
10 Mukti 1977 14.02.1977 Anand Bakshi Yes/Yippeeee’ed

‘Jeewan Mukt-1977’ was directed by Sudhendu Roy for S.R. Productions, Bombay. It had Lakshmi, Parikshit Sahni, Girish Karnad, Mala Jaggi, Sudha Shivpuri, Pawan Dutt, Meena Rai, Master Gautam, Ashok Razdan, Dhanna, Asha Lata, Suresh Oberoi, Dinshaw Dazi, Shrimati Mistri and others.

As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie had total four songs, all were solo songs sung by Asha Bhonsle. (however, on internet I came across a song sung by Kishore Kumar and it is uploaded as an ‘unreleased song from this movie- ‘Jeewan Mukt’, which needs to be checked and confirmed. HFGK doesn’t mention this song).

Lyricist Yogesh wrote the songs for this movie and music was composed by R.D. Burman.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.08.1977.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is lip synced on screen by Lakshmi. Master Gautam (I guess) is the kid seen with her. Some other artists including two playing a village cuple are also seen in the picturisation.

Let us enjoy today’s song which is said to be inspired from a ‘western song’ (guesses?).

The book ‘R.D. Burman- The Man, The Music’ also mentions one other song from this movie ‘Jeewan Mukt’ where Pancham Da had taken inspiration from the music composed by a famous ‘western group’, but then that is the ‘inspiration’ for another post. Till then let us all enjoy this song and pay our tributes to our beloved Pancham Da.

With this song ‘Jeewan Mukt-1977’ makes its debut on the blog. With this song, all released movies of 1977 that had music by R D Burman find representation on the blog. 🙂

Song-Lehra ke dagar chali jaati hai kidhar (Jeewan Mukt)(1977) singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics (Based on Video link)

lehraa ke dagar
chali jaati hai kidhar
kuchh tumko pataa hai
kuchh tumhen hai khabar
lehraa ke dagar
chali jaati hai kidhar
kuchh tumko pataa hai
kuchh tumhen hai khabar
door kahin pe
sone ki zameen pe
pyaara pyaara hai
bahaaron ka nagar
lehraa ke dagar chali jaati hai kidhar
kuchh tumko pataa hai
kuchh tumhen hai khabar

aa aa aa aa aa

ye khiley khiley
manchale saje
mausam ki qasam
rukte nahin kahin mere qadam
ye khiley khiley
manchale saje
mausam ki qasam
rukte nahin kahin mere qadam
lagtaa hai man ko
jaise gagan ko
pankh binaa main
chhoo rahin hoon ud kar
lehraa ke dagar
chali jaati hai kidhar
kuchh tumko pataa hai
kuchh tumhen hai khabar
lehraa ke dagar
chali jaati hai kidhar
kuchh tumko pataa hai
kuchh tumhen hai khabar

aa aa aa aa

yahaan kiran kiran
jab chaman chaman ko chhoo le ae
dil mera sab kuchh bhoole ae
yahaan kiran kiran
jab chaman chaman ko chhoo le ae
dil mera sab kuchh bhoole ae
lachke jo daali koi phoolonwaali
ho jaaye mujh par jaadu ka asar
lehraa ke dagar
chali jaati hai kidhar
kuchh tumko pataa hai
kuchh tumhen hai khabar
lehraa ke dagar
chali jaati hai kidhar
kuchh tumko pataa hai
kuchh tumhe hai khabar

jab dheere dheere nadiyaa ke teere ae
din jo dhale ae
mehendi rachaa kar shaam chale ae
jab dheere dheere nadiyaa ke teere ae
din jo dhale ae
mehendi rachaa kar shaam chale ae
dhake dabe paaon se
rangon bhare gaaon se
aayi ho rangeeli koyi gori saj kar
lehraa ke dagar
chali jaati hai kidhar
kuchh tumko pataa hai
kuchh tumhen hai khabar
door kahin pe
sone ki zameen pe
pyaara pyaara hai
bahaaron ka nagar
lehraa ke dagar
chali jaati hai kidhar
kuchh tumko pataa hai
kuchh tumhen hai khabar

laa laa laa aa
laa ra la la la laa
la la la la laa laa
laa laa laa laa aa

लहरा के डगर
चली जाती है किधर
कुछ तुमको पता है
कुछ तुम्हे है खबर
लहरा के डगर
चली जाती है किधर
कुछ तुमको पता है
कुछ तुम्हे है खबर
दूर कहीं पे
सोने की ज़मीन पे
प्यारा प्यारा है
बहारों का नगर
लहरा के डगर
चली जाती है किधर
कुछ तुमको पता है
कुछ तुम्हे है खबर

आ आ आ आ

ये खिले खिले
मनचले सजे
मौसम की क़सम
रुकते नहीं कहीं मेरे क़दम
ये खिले खिले
मनचले सजे
मौसम की क़सम
रुकते नहीं कहीं मेरे क़दम
लगता है मन को
जैसे गगन को
पंख बिना मैं
छू रहीं हूँ उड़कर
लहरा के डगर
चली जाती है किधर
कुछ तुमको पता है
कुछ तुम्हे है खबर
लहरा के डगर
चली जाती है किधर
कुछ तुमको पता है
कुछ तुम्हे है खबर

आ आ आ आ आ

यहाँ किरण किरण
जब चमन चमन को छू ले ए
दिल मेरा सब कुछ भूले ए
यहाँ किरण किरण
जब चमन चमन को छू ले ए
दिल मेरा सब कुछ भूले ए
लचके जो डाली
कोई फूलोंवाली
हो जाए मुझपर जादू का असर
लहरा के डगर
चली जाती है किधर
कुछ तुमको पता है
कुछ तुम्हे है खबर
लहरा के डगर
चली जाती है किधर
कुछ तुमको पता है
कुछ तुम्हे है खबर

जब धीरे धीरे नदिया के तीरे ए
दिन जो ढले ए
मेहँदी रचा कर शाम चले ए
जब धीरे धीरे नदिया के तीरे ए
दिन जो ढले ए
मेहँदी रचा कर शाम चले ए
ढके दबे पाँव से
रंगों भरे गाँव से
आई हो रंगीली कोई गोरी सज कर
लहरा के डगर
चली जाती है किधर
कुछ तुमको पता है
कुछ तुम्हे है खबर
दूर कहीं पे
सोने की ज़मीन पे
प्यारा प्यारा है
बहारों का नगर
लहरा के डगर
चली जाती है किधर
कुछ तुमको पता है
कुछ तुम्हे है खबर
