Hullo Atuldom

‘Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein’ (RHTDM – 2001) was produced by Vashu Bhagnani and directed by Gautam Vasudev Menon. It was either a remake or made along side Gautam Vasudev Menon’s Tamil ‘Minnale’. ‘Minnale’ released in February and RHTDM released in October 2001. Both the versions had R Madhavan play the lead, music was by Harris Jayaraj (I think both the movies were the composers’ debut in the respective languages).

RHTDM was the debut of, second runner-up Miss India 2000, Dia Mirza who had gone to be crowned Miss Asia Pacific 2000. Indian beauties Lara Dutta & Priyanka Chopra were that year’s Miss Universe & Miss World respectively.

‘Rehnaa Hai Terra Dil Mein’ (please note that the extra alphabets in the title may have something to do with numerology and that is how it appeared in the movie’s title card) had Saif Ali Khan as the other male protagonist along with Vrajesh Hirjee, Tannaz Irani (she was Tannaz Currim back then), Anupam Kher, Navin Nischol, etc in the cast. Sameer was the lyricist and Bombay Jayashree, Roop Kumar Rathod, Sonu Nigam, Kavitha Krishnamurthy, Shaan, Preeti – Pinky, Sukhvinder Singh, Shekhar Ravijani, Sunidhi Chauhan, Vasundhara Das and KK were the playback singers used.

The movie was the story of a love-struck man,  (unknowingly) stealing the identity of his former college foe, to pursue his lady-love and the eventual repercussions he has to face, when his cover is blown before he could come clean.

I had originally zeroed in to the songs of this movie to wish R Madhavan on his birthday which was on 1st of June. R Madhavan was born in Jamshedpur to South Indian parents and completed his graduation from Kolhapur. In college he was a leading NCC cadet and had the opportunity to go to England and get training in the Royal Air-Force, Royal Navy and British Army. I read somewhere that he had briefly toyed the idea of joining the armed forces too but missed the cut-off by a few months. A brief stint in modelling helped him gain a foothold in the entertainment industry via the television industry. I remember him playing Satish Shah’s son-in-law and Mandira Bedi’s husband in ‘Ghar Jamai’ in the ’90s. His first chance in Indian films came via Kannada movies.

Before I could complete the post in came the news of the untimely death of the KK aka Krishnakumar Kunnath after a stage performance in Kolkatta. He was only 53.

KK was born to South Indian parents (like Madhavan) in New Delhi. He was an alumnus of Kirori Mal College. He was the voice of the jingles in the ’90s before AR Rehman gave him a break in Tamil. His debut in Hindi films was the full throat song “Tadap Tadap Ke Is Dil Se Aah Nikalti Rahi” from the film ‘Ham Dil De Chuke Sanam’ (1999) under the baton of Ismail Darbar (the song is already present on our blog with a post by Nahmji).

Yesterday fellow-Atulite Satyajitji shared a short clip featuring hits of KK and I found most of them had been my favorites; of course without knowing who was singing those. I must also admit that I am as ignorant about the current lot of singers as I was about the singers of the Golden Era of Indian Music. Just as some songs are prophetic about the concerned writer, music director, singer etc. There is a song which KK sang “Hum Rahe Ya Na Rahe Kal” from the non film album ‘Pal’. It seems that he had sung this song on-stage on that fateful evening of 31st May.

For this post I present the song which I had originally chosen to wish Madhavan on his birthday on 1st June.

But now this song unfortunately also happens to be a tribute to KK.

सच कह रहा है दीवाना
दिल
दिल ना किसी से लगाना
झूठे हैं यार के वादे सारे
झूठी हैं प्यार की कसमें
मैंने हर लम्हा जिसे चाहा
जिसे पूजा
उसी ने यारो मेरा दिल तोड़ा
तोड़ा
तन्हा
तन्हा छोड़ा

सच कह रहा है दीवाना
दिल
दिल ना किसी से लगाना
झूठे हैं यार के वादे सारे
झूठी हैं प्यार की कसमें
मैंने हर लम्हा जिसे चाहा
जिसे पूजा
उसी ने यारो मेरा दिल तोड़ा
तोड़ा
तन्हा
तन्हा छोड़ा

सुन्दर सुन्दर
वो हसीना
बड़ी सुन्दर सुन्दर
मैं तो खोने लगा
उसके नशे में
बिन पिये बहका
आ आ आ
सुन्दर सुन्दर
वो हसीना
बड़ी सुन्दर सुन्दर
मैं तो खोने लगा
उसके नशे में
बिन पिये बहका॰ ॰ ॰
इक दिन उसे भुला दूँगा मैं
उसके निशां मिटा दूँगा मैं
चाहूँगा ना मैं उस पत्थर को
जा उसे बता दे

ओ ओ
सच कह रहा है दीवाना
दिल
दिल ना किसी से लगाना
झूठे हैं यार के वादे सारे
झूठी हैं प्यार की कसमें
मैंने हर लम्हा जिसे चाहा

बस पल भर में
आके बसी है वो मेरे मन में
उसकी कमी है अब जीवन में
वो दूर है मेरी नज़रों से
क्यों उसे मैं चाहूँ

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 25

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This discovery of a repeat song will have to be termed as Mother of All Repeat Songs. And just in case, before you start wondering whether poor dear me has decided to take a step off the deep end, let me explain.

Ostensibly searching for something else totally disconnected with repeat songs in Hindi films, I chanced to read this caption on a YouTube link. The face in the thumbnail image is neither Bharat Bhushan or Shashi Kapoor. And so, intrigued as I was, I clicked on the thumbnail with the face of R Madhavan, to play this song whose caption was sounding so very familiar. It turns out, yes, it is a repeat song – a repeat of the very endearing and a must-have favorite from the 1969 film ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’. This signature track has been the theme of many an amorous message of love for the connoisseurs of the Hindi film music.

Ah, but the story of my discovery had just started. I checked out the name of the film. Turns out it is ‘Dil Vil Pyaaar Vyaar’ from 2002. I track down the Wikipedia page of this film. I had not heard of this film earlier. The story line weaves around the romance lives of young friends. Seemed like a run-of-the-mill rom-com tales that abound the landscape of the Hindi film world. An immediate analogy that came to mind, from the era familiar to me, was ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’ of 1957. Similar theme, romance tales of three young friends.

Ah but what wonderful and divine music that film has. I will not dwell on the delightful music created by the legendary Madan Mohan – I am sure all readers and friends are already very much taken in by the songs of that film from 1957.

Getting back to ‘DVPV’ (‘Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar’), I was thinking – seems like the producer of this film did not have much imagination to engage song writers and MDs to create some fresh songs. So he chose to easy route to re-use this song.

But as I continued down the Wikipedia page, and reached the Soundtrack section, my eyes remained agape in wonder. The film has 13 songs listed. And (OK now, hold your breath) – ALL, I repeat ALL songs are repeats of earlier hit songs of the 60s to 80s time period. Looking closey at the list, the second realization, and a big one, hit home. ALL the thirteen tracks are creations of RD Burman. Now this discovery surely something great and different.

A little more research and I am able to locate more information online. The producer of this film is a diehard fan of RD Burman and the music created by him. And this film ‘DVPV’ has been created as a tribute for his favorite MD. So, a story and a screenplay was conjured and 13 of RDB’s famous hits have been woven into it.

The producer of this film is Vivek Vaswani. As it turns out, he himself is the author of the story line of this film. The screenplay has been adapted from the story by Sujit Sen.

Of course the credits for the song will remain with the original creators. But for this film, the music for the songs has been re-arranged and re-recorded by Babloo Chakravorty. So all songs in this film are recorded in different voices.

Ah yes, in case you are wondering – yes, I plan to bring on board all the thirteen songs of this film, in good time. Quite a bonanza here for this series.

This wonderful song from ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’ has been re-recorded in the voice of Hariharan. On screen, it is performed by R Madhvan. I am sure all are familiar with this new name. My introduction to Madhavan has been through the 2009 hit film ‘3 Idiots’. I will try to say more about this film and its performers, in subsequent episodes, as I venture to cover all the songs of this film.

Other actors we see in this clip are Asrani and Namrata Shirodkar. The wonders that a song can do has not changed across the decades that Hindi films have been created, exhibited and watched. It has only become better, more imaginative and more incredulous. In the very early days of this blog itself, Atul ji had come to a conclusion, and he has so documented it in many a write up. That a situation in Hindi films takes about 3 minutes or so to be transformed. All it takes is a song. The song starts in a particular mood, with a particular expectation, and by the time the song ends, the desired mood and desired outcome is achieved and the expectations realized. In many earlier such discussions, we have seen quite wondrous and amazing things happen during the duration of a song.

With this song, things are no different. Rather, the stretch on the gullibility of comprehension is a bit too much. Madhavan is on a stage, participating in a music competition. Things to be noted about the setting. The stage where the performance happens is designed like a music CD. And the effect is complete with the singer handling a very old fashioned standing microphone. The antics Madhavan attempts with this mike takes us even further back to Elvis Presley performing live on stage, back in the 1950s.

His lady love, Namrata, is at the airport, already checked in for a flight that will take her thousands of miles away to another country, away from her beau. And voila. A ‘strategically’ placed TV screen within her view starts to telecast the music competition just as Madhavan is to present his song. The song starts. It is the replay of the famous aria – this one, from ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’.

All it takes in one stanza for the lady love to make up her mind to abandon her plans to leave the country, and she decides to go back into the beckoning arms of her lover. The second stanza is even more wondrous. The lady exits from the airport, starts to drive to where the competition is in progress. And, another VOILA – this time in capital letters – she drives through the Bombay traffic, with all her memories about times spent with her lover replaying on the mind’s screen, reaches the location and is on stage with her lover, by the time the second stanza comes to a close. And yes, even has time for a change of attire. The applause by the audience is still in progress as she makes an entrance through a hazy and foggy doorway, with the director making utmost efforts to make it appear like a fairy descending through the clouds.

I remember having seen a cartoon long long back advising filmgoers to please leave their logic and reasoning outside the door, when entering a cinema hall to watch a Hindi film (or maybe any film for that matter).

So mission accomplished. In less than three minutes, from the verge of just starting to board her flight, the lady love makes it from the airport to the competition stage and into the arms of her lover.

Long be loved – the wondrous Hindi film song. Yes, all it takes is a song.

Song – Tum Bin, Jaaun Kahaan. . .  (Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar) (2002) Singer – Hariharan, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – RD Burman
[Music rearranged by Babloo Chakravarty]

Lyricsa

tum bin jaaun kahan
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin

dekho mujhe sar se kadam tak
sirf pyaar hoon main
gale se lagaa lo ke tumhaara
bekaraar hoon main
tum kya jaano ke bhatakta fira
kis kis gali
tum ko chaah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin

rah bhi sakoge tum kaise
ho ke mujhse judaa
hat jaayengi deewaaren
sun ke meri sadaa
aanaa hogaa tumhen mere liye
saathi meri
sooni raah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa kabhi
tumko chaah ke…
tum bin

रह भी सकोगे तुम कैसे
हो के मुझ से जुदा
हट जाएंगी दीवारें
सुन के मेरी सदा
आना होगा तुम्हें मेरे लिए
साथी मेरी
सूनी राह के
तुम बिन
जाऊँ कहाँ
के दुनिया में आ के
कुछ ना फिर
चाहा सनम
तुमको चाह के
तुम बिन

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 20
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

It is like cherry picking a hit parade – the repeat songs are almost always the popular hit songs that have made a serious mark on the collective memory of the audiences and lovers of Hindi films and film songs. And this song is no exception. Rather this song has been so popular – with its catchy lyrics and a very hummable melody – that one hears this song being used in many different avatars outside of the film frame – remixes, revival melodies, even background music for recorded dance performances. One can find such samples online on YT.

This iconic song, originally from the 1968 film – ‘Kismat’, has been reused in the 2011 film ‘Tanu Weds Manu’. Whereas the original song was a disguise cum diversion song, in a situation where the lead pair is trying to get away from a group of bad-men, in the newer film, this song is being used as a wooing-cum-proposal-making song. The occasion is a wedding of a friend of the leading lady. Tanuja (Kangana Ranaut) aka Tanu is trying to muster up courage to proposition Manu, who appears to be too shy and unprepared to take a step towards a relationship. Using the wedding scenario as an excuse, Tanu gets drunk (or appears to get drunk). The situation develops and reaches this song in a couple of minutes, and in the guise of this song, Tanu finally gets to speak her heart out to Manu,

kismat bana de meri
duniya basa de meri
kar le sagaai meri jaan

Please note that in this re-use, the original song has been presented as it is, the only one change is that two stanzas have been used instead of 3. So what we hear in this song are the original voices of Asha Bhosle and Shamshad Begum, the mukhda and antara lines suitably edited to present a shorter version.

The info about this reuse has been shared with me by Anekant ji. He has been a regular contributor and there is still a few more songs in my pending list for this series, that have been suggested by him.

The original song from the film ‘Kismat’ came on to this blog on 9th February, 2009. It can be accessed here – “Kajra Mohabbat Wala, Akhiyon Mein Aisa Daala“.

Check out this resue, and witness an energetic on screen performance by Kangana, who, under the supposed influence of alcohol, is desirous of presenting a Kanpuria dance for the occasion. And enjoy.

Song – Kajra Mohabbat Wala Akhiyon Mein Aisa Daala  (Tanu Weds Manu) (2011) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Shamshad Begum, Lyrics – SH Bihari, MD – OP Nayyar

Lyrics

kajra mohabbat waala
akhiyon me aisa daala
kajre ne le li meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan
duniya hai mere peeche
lekin main tere peeche
apna bana le meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan
kajra mohabbat waala
akhiyon me aisa daala
kajre ne le li meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

aayi ho kahaan se gori
aankhon me pyaar le ke
aayi ho kahaan se gori

aankhon me pyaar le ke
chadhti jawaani ki ye pehli bahaar leke
dilli shahar ka saara
meena bazaar leke

dilli shahar ka saara
meena bazaar leke

jhumka bareli wala
kaano me aisa daala
jhumke ne le li meri jaan
hay re main tere qurbaan
duniya hai mere peeche
lekin main tere peeche
apna bana le meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

motor na bangla maangoon
jhumka na haar maangoon
motor na bangla maangoon
jhumka na haar maangoon
dil ko jalaane waale dil ka qaraar maangoon
sainya bedardi mere
thoda sa pyaar maangoon

sainya bedardi mere
thoda sa pyaar maangoon

kismat bana de meri
duniya basa de meri
kar le sagaai meri jaan
haay re main tere qurbaan

कजरा मोहब्बत वाला
अखियों में ऐसा डाला
कजरे ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
दुनिया है मेरे पीछे
लेकिन मैं तेरे पीछे
अपना बना ले मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
कजरा मोहब्बत वाला
अखियों में ऐसा डाला
कजरे ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

आई हो कहाँ से गोरी
आँखों में प्यार ले के
आई हो कहाँ से गोरी
आँखों में प्यार ले के
चढ़ती जवानी की ये
पहली बहार ले के
दिल्ली शहर का सारा
मीना बाज़ार ले के
दिल्ली शहर का सारा
मीना बाज़ार ले के
झुमका बरेली वाला
कानों में ऐसा डाला
झुमके ने ले ली मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
दुनिया है मेरे पीछे
लेकिन मैं तेरे पीछे
अपना बना ले मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान

मोटर ना बंगला माँगूँ
झुमका ना हार माँगूँ
मोटर ना बंगला माँगूँ
झुमका ना हार माँगूँ
दिल को जलाने वाले दिल का क़रार माँगूँ
सैंया बेदर्दी मेरे
थोड़ा सा प्यार माँगूँ
सैंया बेदर्दी मेरे
थोड़ा सा प्यार माँगूँ
किस्मत बना दे मेरी
दुनिया बसा दे मेरी
कर लै सगाई मेरी जान
हाय रे मैं तेरे क़ुर्बान
