Blog Day : 3653 Post No. : 14509

ASAD 10th Anniversary Celebrations – 15
———————————————————————

It has been a while since my last post here – and I have no excuses for this. I will not cite “been busy” as an excuse, because, if I’m honest, I could certainly have found time for a post. If anything, the only reason for not posting is my sheer laziness. And laziness is never, and should never be, an acceptable excuse. So, no excuses. Mea culpa.

One thing though. While I might not be posting frequently, this blog is never far from my heart. It might not be apparent from my recent (non-existent) interactions but this is fact. Whether I post here or not, this blog is very special to me. After all, I have been involved with it from day one. So I request everyone to please excuse my prolonged absence. (Some might consider it not such a bad thing. 🙂 )

Anyway, let me get to the point now. I am not the story here – something else is. Something much bigger than me and my mundane blabbering. Yes, this post is part of a series that marks a very special occasion for this blog. An occasion that speaks to an achievement so momentous, so mind-boggling that it calls for a “lifetime achievement award” for the creator of the blog.

This blog, our beloved blog, completes TEN years today – the first post here appeared on 19th July 2008.

I know I will never be able to do justice to the emotions I am experiencing right now. Words just cannot fully express these feelings. But I’ll try to share some of my thoughts on this occasion. They will be rambling, as usual – but I hope that’s ok.

TEN years. In the history of civilizations, TEN years is nothing. Even in inter-stellar references, depending on context, TEN years is nothing.

But in the world of blogging, TEN years of continuous blogging is HUGE. Mind-blowingly awe-inspiringly HUGE. Or, to use a very common American term, AWESOME. The operative word here is “continuous”. Most blogs out here (and there are countless numbers) are started with great enthusiasm. It doesn’t matter what the blog is about – but, much like exercise, the enthusiasm sees a dramatic drop over time. This could be days, weeks, or, for the more dogged, months. The blog marathoners might just push it into a few years, but there is usually a visible decline in tempo – much like a vehicle that has run its mileage, but is being started everyday just so it doesn’t come to a complete halt. Thus you see a post surface on the blog after months – as if to signal the blog (and the writer) is still alive.

I am not exaggerating. Yours truly also has a potpourri-like blog  – started many years ago with considerable enthusiasm. The live update on the situation is that I can’t even remember when I last posted anything on the blog. Must be a few months at least, if not more. And I am in pretty good company. Thousands of blogs suffer this fate.

That is where this Atul-song-a-day blog, so beloved to us, stands out. Separate from all the other blogs out there. It is one thing to clock ten years. There must be plenty of blogs created before 19th July 2008 and still active. But I wonder how many of those have posts almost EVERY SINGLE DAY day since then. And if they do, I am almost sure they must be commercial blogs, run for profit. By probably an army of people dedicated to the job. In comparison, here it is very different.

We have Atul – who started this blog purely as a labour of love. To this day, even ten years later, it remains that. Yes, he’s helped by Sudhir ji now (and that’s a huge help!) but it’s still one hell of an ask to keep posting every single day. But they do it – Atul and Sudhir ji. The rest of us, Atulites, enjoy the blog, discuss songs, write posts at times (cough, cough!) – but it is basically run by Atul and Sudhir ji.

The most amazing thing about this is that they are both very busy people otherwise – so they have plenty to do, even apart from taking care of this blog. And like I’ve said many times before, every post involves a certain degree of effort. There’s no compromise on quality, so it’s not just a hurried hashed job for the sake of posting something. No compromise on accuracy, whether in the lyrics or in the post itself. If it means needing to listen to a song umpteen times (and Atul has done that), so be it! And apart from the post, there are the other features – the analysis, statistics. All of this demands time too. And besides what we see, they are always working on something in the background.

And oh, I forgot to mention, there’s always the risk of infrastructure failing – whether a power failure, or internet connectivity issue. Over these ten years Atul has been posted in multiple towns – each with its infrastructure challenges. When I consider all this, I can only say that it takes a very special level of love and dedication to HFM to be able to achieve so much, with all constraints and demands on their time.

I would also like to compliment and congratulate not just Atul and Sudhir ji, but everyone who has been part of this wonderful journey, in any capacity. There have been many – some stalwarts too (I shall not take names, we all know who they are 🙂 ) – who have contributed to this blog immensely.

Thanks to this blog, we have all come together, from all over the world, from diverse backgrounds – but with music as our common love and bonding factor. Without this blog, that would not have happened.

Of course, on such an occasion, it is normal to also reflect on the journey. My mind goes back to that first song , posted on 19th July 2008. “Miley Na Phool To Kaanton Se Dosti Kar Li” – Rafi Saab’s divine voice, meaningful lyrics by Kaifi Azmi, composition by Roshan. This song started the journey.

My comment appears on 21st July – so two days later. That is because I got to know about the blog only then. Atul and I were part of this cricket forum – both of us share this interest too, apart from music. Although the forum was primarily meant for cricket discussion, we would discuss a lot of other stuff too – mostly fun stuff. Given our interest, we naturally discussed songs too.

Atul and I (and a few others) would post songs on the forum every now and then. Atul had a thread ‘train songs’, I had a thread ‘songs that inspire me’ and so on.

Around this time Atul started a blog to discuss some of his experiences – I remember him blogging about Binaca Geet Mala, and the famous Jaimala programme of Vividh Bharati. Then one fine day, Atul announced on the cricket forum that he had started a new blog for songs. This announcement was on 21st July 2008 – I promptly visited the blog. Read the post, listened to the song – and left a comment. Shalini, another friend on the forum, also was one of the earliest visitors and commenters on the blog.

At that time, the intention was only one song a day. Which explains the blog name.

But of course, with one song a day, you would not get very far even in ten years. And our thirst wouldn’t get quenched. 🙂

In those early days, I used to give Atul a lot of farmaishes. He was obviously posting songs of his liking – I liked them too, but I had so many other songs that I wanted to see on the blog. So I used to send him requests – lists of 10 songs at a time. Not necessarily very famous songs – I remember even giving a farmaish for “Paape Na Sharma” (film ‘Sagaai’, 1966) – a song I distinctly remember from my childhood.

Around that time, Lalitha also joined in. She was a regular commenter – and would give her farmaishes too. For a while, I felt less guilty – I wasn’t the only one making demands on Atul. Poor Atul! He had started with the intention of posting one song of his choice every day. And here he was, trying to cater to long lists of farmaishes – many probably not even songs of his choice. Yet, he didn’t complain (“Aah Bhi Nikle To Ye Pyaar Ki Rusvaai Hai” ?). He tried gamely to post them all – and possibly realized that at one song a day, it wasn’t going to be feasible.

After a while (I don’t know when – Atul would know the exact dates), he switched to multiple songs a day. That was a big boost for thirsty people like me. 🙂  He kept making improvements to the blog. One feature after another. Statistics. Anniversary page. At that time it was totally a one-man show. He somehow managed to keep posting everyday. The write-up was entirely his at the time.

Then, one day, he asked me if I would do a write-up. I was a bit nervous – but said ok. That was the start for me – this is my 201st post. In these 200 posts, I’ve had the opportunity to pay tribute to several artistes on their birth/death anniversaries or blog landmark occasions – all thanks to Atul.

The blog itself now covers 14500+ songs – I would say it is the richest, most composite, repository of HFM on the internet, especially if you consider that it includes many obscure songs, and is a package of lyrics, video/audio AND a write-up for every single song posted. In any case, we are not in competition with anyone – like I’ve said before, this is a labour of love. We keep building the repository – and the process itself is an enjoyable one. For me personally, this blog has enriched my knowledge of HFM SO much I cannot begin to explain in words. I have discovered SO many gems only through this blog.

And oh, the knowledge of Atulites here! I feel SO humbled. I know nothing, and am happy to learn more from our inhouse encyclopaedia, Arunji. Or Sadanandji, whose knowledge is also immense. And others too. The important thing I realize is that I will not get this information anywhere else on the internet – it is in their heads, often coming from a book or an interview or article ages ago. The internet is not as complete (or even as accurate) a source as many think. We need to keep adding new (accurate) content to it.

And this blog is doing a great job in this respect. Even the comments section are a treasure house of trivia and rare information. For example, when Arunji discusses a song from a film, he doesn’t talk only about the film. He talks about the circumstances in which the film was made, the times, the background of the artistes, director, producer and so on. That gives a very different, and much-enriched, perspective of the film. And this, I feel, is something very special on this blog. It is not merely a song video/audio/lyrics effort. There’s a story behind it that brings the song and film seemingly to life.

And I just love those stories. 🙂

Apart from the blog itself, there is the ecosystem that has got created around it. All the people who came together because of the blog but are now good friends, part of whatsapp group and so on. Some of us have met each other too. Music bonds anyway – and this blog has taken the bonding to a different level. And being part of this journey from day one has been an absolute privilege for me. I have enjoyed it thoroughly and cherish every moment.

Talking of the journey brings me to the song for this post. This is from Jawaab (1970). The lyrics have been provided to me by Avinash ji. When I told him I was planning to do a write-up on this song, he immediately offered to provide me with the lyrics – in English and Devanagari. He is so passionate about this blog, and so helpful – thank you SO much, Avinash ji.

I have picked this song for two main reasons. First, I wanted a fun song to reflect a fun occasion. Secondly, and probably more importantly, some of the lyrics completely resonate with me.

zindagi wo kya
na pyaar jis mein ho
saath agar ho saathi dil ka
mazaa safar mein hai

How absolutely true! What is life without love in it? And indeed, the journey of life is made enjoyable, thanks to the presence of friends on this journey. Otherwise it would be a lonely journey.

The same is totally true of this blog. The journey, now of ten years, has been made thoroughly enjoyable, certainly for me, thanks to the presence of friends on this journey.

And

baant na lein kyon aapas mein
jo dard jigar mein hai

Also true. We share good and bad times, as we go through this journey. So I felt this song suits this occasion very well.

As for the picturisation, I quite like the zany dancing of, then Jumping Jack, Jeetendra. Even by his crazy standards, some of the moves here are of a different level. Leena Chandavarkar too, probably trying not to be outdone, comes up with some moves of her own. All in all, a totally fun song which I am sure most people will enjoy.

Thanks for reading this post – and once again, congratulations to everyone who has been a part of this journey.

mazaa safar mein hai

Yes, indeed. 🙂

मज़ा सफ़र में हैं
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले हम है
अकेले तुम हो

जहां भी देखें आँख कि मस्ती

सहमी सहमी क्यूँ है धड़कन दिल कि
मैं ना जानूं
पड़ न गयी हो आँख किसी कातिल कि
मैं ना जानूं
जब चल जाता है जादू
फिर दिल पर कैसा काबू
हो हो हो हो ओ ओ ओ
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले हम है
अकेले हम है
होठों पर भी ले आओ
जो बात नज़र में है

ज़िंदगी वो क्या

साथ अगर हो साथी दिल का
मज़ा सफ़र में हैं
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले तुम हो
अकेले हम है
अकेले हम है
अकेले तुम हो

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 69 # Singer – Kishore Kumar #
(Voice of Kishore Kumar in Seventies)
———————————————–——————–

‘5 Rifles’ (1974) – (‘पांच रायफल’) as the movie’s Censor Certificate mentions it or (‘५ रायफलें’) as the movies titles mention it – was produced, directed and written by IS Johar. It was a Shanker BC presentation for Delux Productions (India). The movie has a ‘U’ certificate, still its online version requires a confirmation of age 🙂 I don’t know why? anyway I had to watch only the title credits for information 😉 . The film was passed by censors on 09.08.1974.

It had Ambika Johar, Rakesh Khanna, Shahi Kapoor, Anil Johar, Kamal Kapoor, Veena, Sapru, Satyadip, Murad, Keti Irani, Keshto Mukherjee, IS Johar, Ravi, Ram Avtar, Chanda, Qamar Sarhadi, Nazeer Kashmiri, Kedar Sehgal, Bairam, Bali Jajani, Omi, and Master Anu. Editing for this movie was done by M.S. Shinde. DR Thakkar and Faruk Kaiser were the associate directors of this movie. Darius Gotla was the Executive Producer of this movie, whereas Seeroo Daryanani (I think it is one person only) was the associate producer.

This movie had total six songs, including the famous qawwaali – “Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom Sharaabi” which is already posted on our blog. The qawwaliis written by Nazaan Sholapuri while Aziz Nazaan was the composer and the singer. For the remaining five songs, four are written by Rajendra Krishna and one by Indeevar. Music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. The movie titles under singers mention the name of Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar only.

HFGK Vol V liststhe following songs in the for this movie,

  • Wo kya cheez hai maharaj… duniya ke banaane waale ne (Kishore Kumar)
  • Pyaar ke patang ki dor jiske haath hai (Kishore Kumar, chorus)
  • Jab se sarkaar ne nashaabandi tod di (Kishore Kumar, chorus)
  • Teraa husn Allaah Allaah teraa roop Raam Raam (Kishore Kumar)
  • Malmal mein badan mora chamke (Asha Bhonsle)

and for the famous qawwaali included in this movie it mentions a note;

In this movie one popular qawwali ‘Jhoom baraabar jhoom sharaabi (Singer-Composer: Aziz Nazan/Lyricist – Nazan Sholapuri) was picturized on Ambika Johar in this movie.

I wonder how Ambika Johar would have felt lip syncing this qawaali in thick and heavy set male voice. 😉 In his write-up presenting the above qawwaali song Atul ji has already mentioned the following-

In reality, this qawwaali was not created for this movie. This qawwaali was created by Aziz Nazaan for his mushairas. He was the singer as well as the music director of this qawwaali. 

However, after going through details of this movie mentioned in HFGK Vol-V, I was curious to know where the credit for this qawwaali have been mentioned in the titles of this movie. It appears in the ‘Assistants’ section – for ‘music assistants’ – mentioning Babla as ‘assistant’ and Parte as ‘arranger’, Conducted by Frank Fernand, followed by mentioning that ‘Jhoom Baraabar Jhoom’ by ‘Courtesy the Gramophone Co. India Ltd and Aziz Nazan, lyrics Nazan Sholapuri’, and as we all know that ironically the film today is identified with this famous qawwaali only and its other songs didn’t even get noticed or are remembered today if I am not wrong.

I could not find information about the plot / story of the film. A comment on the internet from a reader suggests that the movie was about a fictitious story set in the backdrop of the battle for freedom. The story is about a kingdom in an unspecified time era, which conquered by a foreign power, and the efforts of the royal family and a handful of activists to wrest back their freedom.

I had vague memories of watching this film in my childhood with my parents. However, I only remember the ‘monkeys with the rifles’ and over the years after that, reading about this film, I got to know that there were the ‘look-alikes’ of ‘Rajesh Khanna’ and ‘Shashi Kapoor’ in this film. But the one memory that has been permanently associated with this film’s name is the famous ‘qawwaali’. It was very popular in those years and continues to be so for many years. It was frequently heard over loud speakers then.

Almost six years back I came across this song sung by Kishore Kumar and on checking I find that this was from this movie ‘Five Rifles’. Listening to this song give a me a feeling of hearing it many years back on radio or elsewhere. I had shared this song with Atul ji then, but somehow it remained to be posted for this day today 🙂

So, fortunately I get to share this song from this movie sung by Kishore Kumar which is a ‘patriotic song’ in disguise of a romantic song. On screen it is lip synced by Rakesh Khanna who is also trying to enact the mannerisms of the Superstar Rajesh Khanna. The situation of the song; (after watching this part of the movie having this song)

Rakesh Khanna a ‘deshbhakt’ is in jail where the officer Khotu’s wife ‘Madam Khotu’ (?) (don’t know who the actress is) is having a crush on him, goes to meet him and get him released from the jail. Since, her husband is eyeing over Rakesh’s fiancée Rajkumari – of Rakesh Khanna. So, she is doing a ‘tit for tat’ to her husband. She takes our hero to her ‘mahal’ and orders him to sing a song praising her beauty.

‘Mr. Rakesh, hamaare husn ki taarif karo’ … warna ‘khatm kar diye jaaoge’

As our hero is still not ready to surrender her, she gives him a final call

Tumko apni jaan bhi pyaari nahin’

‘Mujhe apne desh se jyaada kuchh bhi pyaara nahin’

 ‘Jhooth mat bolo’ …

Madam Khotu finally gets the hero’s ‘mangetar’ there,

‘Agar iski zindagi chaahte ho to …’

On the other side, the ‘mangetar’ also threatens the hero of losing his love if he sings a song. As our hero is in a dilemma, his eyes fall upon the map of India on the wall behind Madam Khotu’s ‘sinhaasan’. This gives him an idea, and he improvises, singing a ‘patriotic song’ for the country, disguised as a song praising Madam Khotu’s ‘beauty’.

Here is this beautiful song sung by Kishore Kumar and composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. Lyrics are by Rajendra Krishna. And I think I can mention this here that after the qawwaali of this film was posted on the blog on 30th Jun 2009, this song is coming on to the blog today after a gap of almost NINE years.

Wishing herewith all ‘Eid Mubarak’ today let us now enjoy this song …

[Author’s Note: – I had noted one additional stanza at the time of sending this song in 2012, and noted that its video is not available. This additional stanza is given after the main song. I could not find its audio or video even now. Also, I do not remember the source of this additional stanza now.]

[Ed Note: We already have a category on this blog named “Dance Under Duress”; with this song, we now introduce a similar category “Sing Under Duress”. 🙂 ]

Blog Day : 3505 Post No. : 14085

‘Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ (1971) is different from the serial ‘Kyun Ki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ which came a long time after the movie. The movie was an all-round entertainer. We would not get anything less in a movie where Om Prakash heads the cast and the hero (Sanjay Khan in this case) plays a second fiddle to Om Prakash and Jagdeep. Plus, when the mirch-masalas Lalita Pawar and Shashikala spice up the whole setup, it is but natural that the lead cast (Sanjay Khan and Leena Chandavarkar) become secondary – their presence being needed for the romantic interludes.

I must confess I was unaware of this movie till a few years back – till 2014 to be exact. I chanced upon it on one of the umpteen satellite channels. The title made me sit through what turned out to be an enjoyable family- entertainer (as they used to be called back then) which didn’t make you start crying halfway through. A family-entertainer essentially was one which one could see with the entire family and the viewer will be preached about how to maintain family relationships and a few ladies in the audience will be seen crying into their hankies. This movie was not like that.

So, coming to today’s song we have Om Prakash playing a Sadhu Baba and Sanjay and Jagdeep are his chelaas (I think it means students) with Sunder playing an assistant. In the movie Sanjay is Om Prakash’s son, Sunder – his servant and Jagdeep is Sanjay’s saala (brother-in-law). The song has Shashikala and Lalitha Pawar as ladies who have come with queries to the “antaryaami baba”. Through the song we get a gist of the movie. The song is in the voice of Manna Dey written by Rajendra Krishan, with music composed by RD Burman.

One song from this movie was discussed in 2016 by our Avinashji. On the occasion of Om Prakash’s passing away anniversary today; we shall see him the way he was largely-loved by the public. It is 20 years since he passed away.

In those days we used to live in Chembur, Bombay (not yet Mumbai then) and both Om Prakash and Ashok Kumar lived not very far from where we were. Those were the days when it was still cable TV and not satellite TV. And what did the cable operator providing service to our apartment do, he just stopped service for the day and put up a notice on black card— to enable the public in the area to attend the funeral of our beloved “jija ji” (as Om Prakash’s character was in “’Chupke Chupke”) we are suspending our service for a day. That was how much he was loved.

We can remember so many of his memorable characters – starting from ‘Guddi’ (1971) (that is where I noticed him first) to all his characters in Hrishikesh Mukherjee movies, to ‘Ghar Ho To Aisa’ (1990) (that is the last time I saw him in a movie). Of course, his career spanned 42 years and starting from movies made in Lahore in 1942 to “Ghar Ki Izzat” in 1994 he was a co star to every actor – big or small- and gave his best no matter the size of the role as in ‘Purab Aur Paschim’ (1970).

Thinking of Jija ji today on his anniversary

It would be late 1960s, early 1970s – फिल्में देखने का चस्का चढ़ा था। Did not have much more than some fanciful fancies at that time, and very little understanding. I would fancy the heroes, especially Dev Anand, Rajendra Kumar etc. And I would have lasting crush on the leading ladies; generally lasting for a few weeks. I would fancy them to be my leading ladies 😉 – Sadhna, Asha Parekh, Mumtaz, Saira Banu etc.

Besides these two types of fancies, there was, yes one more. This was not so much of a fancy, rather it was more of an abhorrent fright. Of a special person when he appeared on the screen. And a panic would run through the mind and I would clutch a parent’s hand and whisper “oye, Pran aa gaya”.

Such was the dread in the minds of us pre teen kids. Whenever we saw him enter the frame, our hearts were like – now something bad is going to happen. He is going to bully someone, he is going to beat up someone, he is going to insult someone, he is going to cheat someone, he is going to put his weight on a lady and make her scream. . . Ah yes, these were the type of stereotype images that were associated with Pran, and we despised him for all our childhood.

Fast forward now to mid 1990s. I was in the US, and had a long stint in the city of Lansing in Michigan, working on a state govt. project. Lansing is comparatively a small town, despite the fact that it is the capital of Michigan state. There were only two other things besides the state government – the state university and a cornflakes factory owned by Kellogs. And being in Michigan, we were snowed in for six months, and chilled out for another four. We just got a warm season for two months – July and August.

So there was not much to do in that town, other than concentrate on your work. For me, there was a grand saving grace. The small town had a big video library of Hindi films, run by a Pakistani national and a very dear friend, to date – Akbar Bhai. It was not long before I became his best customer, and just for my sake, he would communicate with other dealers in the country and sometimes even travel out, to get the films that I would be requesting of him. I purchased two Toshiba VCRs, bought many packs of VHS tapes, and spent a lot of time copying videos of songs from the VHS tapes that I rented from him.

Sorry for this longish digression, I am coming to the point. The net is that for the few years that I spent in Lansing, I watched and replayed a ton of Hindi films that were available on VHS – of course my choice would taper off after 1970s. In one set of many weeks together, the movies that I rented from him, were a combination of many leading heros, and many genres. But all of them had one thing in common. The villain was Pran. In each and every one of these films, Pran would be getting a hiding of his life in the last 10 to 15 minutes of every film. After having sat through probably a score of films over a period of 4 to 5 weeks, my mind changed and started sympathizing with him. No matter what the film was, he would get beaten up black and blue at the end. And to add insult to injury, he was forced to apologize and plead for forgiveness, or summarily be taken away by the police.

Really telling you, I started to feel sorry for him. And I started to wonder. Day in and day out, he would be shooting films with his co stars, and on every set and every studio floor, he would be taking a beating in front of hundreds of onlookers, every single time. And my mind started to build upon a psychology of such an individual. Of course it did strike me somewhere within this analysis, that yes, money is also involved. But then I rationalized – if I were given money, just for getting beat up every week and in every film I worked in, I would throw away the money, and walk away. But the money angle aside, I used to wonder at this gluttony for punishment. In every film, he misbehaves with ladies, he cons his own family members, he bullies and beats up people. And then, he gets beat up real good for the happy ending of a film. And my mind was like – does this guy never learn? Does he never give up?

I never did see the film ‘Guddi’ (1971) in its first runs. I would get to see it many years later, maybe on Doordarshan or maybe on a VHS play. An inkling of the true nature of this gentleman – I encountered for the first time in this film. Kusum (a teenager, role played by Jaya), who is smitten with a crush for actor Dharmendra, is taken to Bombay by her uncle, Utpal Dutt, and is given a tour of the film studios – a view of how the films are actually made, and what these stars are in real life behind the scenes. So there is a scene, in which Jaya is with Dharmendra, and Pran walks by. They greet each other; and Kusum is hiding behind Dharmendra in fear. Dharmendra admires Pran’s wrist watch, and Pran immediately takes it off and presents it to Dharmendra. After Pran leaves, Jaya reacts strongly, insisting to Dharmendra to return the watch – “इस में कोई चाल है” is what she says. Dharmendra starts to laugh, and then explains. That Pran Saab in real life is an impeccable gentleman, a complete reverse of what his screen image is. He is an amiable, a very friendly, a very kind and a very helpful person.

Along with Guddi (Kusum), it was also a wiping away of a fanciful sheen in my mind, associated with the person called Pran. Then of course, from 1967 onwards, he had started appearing in character roles other than as a villain, and had a complete makeover of his outward personality over the next few years.

But that image has sustained, because the films exist. That is what typecasting does to you. In reality, Pran is somewhat of a popular name in north India, amongst Punjabi and Hindi speaking families. In the 1950s and 60s, the dread of his roles was so great that actually, families stopped naming their children with the word Pran, and its variations. The Gabbar Singh gloat about “बीस बीस कोस तक॰ ॰ ॰” was still to come many years later. 😀 😀

Today (12th Feb) is the birth anniversary of Pran Saab. I have picked this song from the 1964 film ‘Pooja Ke Phool’ for the anniversary remembrance today. Yes, there is a particular reason. It is one of the rare occasions, when Pran Saab has lip sync-ed a song, and danced on screen, from the era of his continued reign as the arch villain of Hindi films. Of course, after 1967 and ‘Upkar’, when he transitioned into character roles, and that too in a big and significant way, he got to perform many a song on screen. In fact, there was a period of time in 1970s and 80s that specific and meaty roles were written for him, and the screen performance almost always included a song lip synced by him. But in the era till the 1960s, he just has an occasional song assigned to him.

Although I have not made a definitive search for them, I recall the following; the duet “Jise Dhoondhti Phirti Hai Meri Nazar” from the film ‘Sheesh Mahal’ (1950); then the fun song from ‘Munim ji’ (1955) – “Dil Ki Umangen Hain Jawaan”. This latter song is also a unique piece of music – Pran Saab has sung for himself in this song. Yes, of course, the iconic “Hai Aag Hamaare Seene Mein. . . Hum Bhi Hain, Tum Bhi Ho” from the musical bonanza ‘Jis Desh Ganga Behti Hai’ (1960). Sterling performance, as Pran Saab rides two horses simultaneously, standing on the back of the horses, one foot on each horse.

And then we come to today’s song. The song is a dance sequence being performed by Gopikrishan Maharaj and Madhumati. In the three antaraa song, the middle antaraa turns out to be a fantasy play, as Pran, who is actually an audience on the side, daydreams himself to be performing the song, along with Sandhya Roy. the lady companion that I am not able to name. So the middle antaraa is performed on screen by Pran Saab and Sandhya Roy his lady companion. Now this performance, a folk dance type steps, trying to emulate someone none other than the great Gopikrishan Maharaj himself, is a type of performance that one does not associate with him (at least in this phase of his career), and none other that I have seen in any other film. I request our knowledgeable friends and readers on the blog to please add more such instances, if they are aware. And yes, the request also includes help to identify the actress who is his lady companion in this clip.
[Ed Note: The lady companion in this clip is identified as Bengali actress Sandhya Roy, as per the inputs provided by Shri Partha Chanda.]

‘Pooja Ke Phool’ is the typical south Indian family drama that is produced by the prestigious banner of AVM and directed by Bheem Singh. The extreme emotionalism of such family dramas, plus the complexity (zaniness??) of the plots and sub plots, sometimes makes this category of films insufferable. So in this film, Pran is the husband of the niece of Dharmendra. Forget the age factor, even the appearances of the characters do not do justice to them. To top it, he (Pran) is also having an amorous fling on the side. In this song, we see him come to see this street performance along with his lady love from the extra-marital affair. Dharmendra too, chances to be on the spot. He sees the two together, and walks away in anger. A little later in the film, the lady starts to demand rights and shares as a wife. She threatens to kill him. The two meet, and in the melee that ensues, the lady gets killed. Mohan Choti is an eyewitness. However, Dharmendra takes on the blame, just so that his niece’s life and home is not jeopardized. Case comes to the court. Ashok Kumar is the public prosecutor, and he has this personal thing against Dharmendra – he has ditched Ashok Kumar’s daughter, and married someone else. Now enter the daughter, Mala Sinha, who is also a lawyer. She comes to the court as the defense lawyer for Dharmendra. Despite his repeated confessions in the court, the case is made to continue. Dharmendra and Mala Sinha were an amorous pair once, but circumstances led Dharmendra to marry a blind girl (Nimmi). If all this does not sound too complicated yet, maybe it is time to watch the film itself. 😀 😀

Not saying too many things about the film, I must confess that I am quite bowled over by the music and the songs. The list if songs is quite impressive, as given below.

Meri Aankhon Se Koi Neend Liye Jaataa Hai 2861 28-Aug-10
Dil Todna Kisi Ka Ye Zindagi Nahin Hai 2886 1-Sep-10
Ab Do Dilon Ki Mushqil 2892 2-Sep-10
Meow Meow Meri Sakhi Achchi Achchi Meri Sakhi 3345 14-Dec-10
Sanam Apni Palkon Pe Tujh Ko 6824 9-Oct-12
Pehle Meri Aankhon Ke Chiraagon Ko Bujhaaya 12598 21-Nov-16
Banda Parwar. . . Raat Ke Andhere Mein Yun Chori Chori Chale Kidhar 14034 8-Feb-18

The songs of this film have been penned by Rajendra Krishan and the music is composed by Madan Mohan.

I would like to write about one more thing, related to this song. The choreography of this dance is done by Gopikrishan Maharaj himself. And that simply is excellent. The dance movements are very imaginatively sequenced, and very excellently executed, including the facial expressions and the twitching of eyebrows. The pace of the song and the pace of the singing is – fast. And the dance steps themselves are so energetic and so beautifully arranged. Pran Saab surely has his work cut out as he takes on the 2nd antaraa on screen.

So now let us enjoy this wonderful peppy dance number. And remember this very lovable villain of the Hindi cinema.

Blog Day : 3493 Post No. : 14036

Noted film director and story / screenplay writer OP Dutta, passed away this day five years ago. He was 90 years when he passed away in 2012.

OP Dutta was born in the town of Gujranwaala in Punjab (now in Pakistan), in 1922. No information is available online about his early years and his education. In 1948, when he was just 26 years old, he directed the film ‘Pyar Ki Jeet’. This film was a major success, and it established Suraiya, the singer-actress as a super star.

He continued to direct films till the end of 1950s. The Hindi films directed by him are – ‘Hamaari Manzil’ (1949), ‘Surajmukhi’ (1950), ‘Ek Nazar’ (1951), ‘Parbat’ (1952), ‘Maalkin’ (1953), ‘Lagan’ (1955), and ‘Aangan’ (1959).

In the early 1950s he travelled to Pakistan and helped to set up a studio in Karachi. Till then, Lahore was the only center of film production in Pakistan. As a part of this effort, he also produced and directed the film ‘Anokhi’ from the studios in Karachi. Regulars may be familiar with this film, that has recently been discovered and is available in public domain. The heroine of this film is Sheela Ramani, and the music director is Timir Baran. This film was probably the earliest and maybe the only significant effort of collaboration between he film industries of India and Pakistan.

From 1960s onward, OP Dutta gave up direction and started writing for films – stories, screenplays, dialogues etc. Notable films from this phase of his career are ‘Chiraagh’ (1969), ‘Do Raaste’ (1969), ‘Mastaana’ (1970), ‘Jeet’ (1972), etc. Later on, he wrote stories and screenplays for some of the big hits  – ‘Kshatriya’ (1993), ‘Border’ (1997), ‘Refugee’ (2000), ‘LOC Kargil’ (2003), and ‘Umrao Jaan’ (2006).

Today’s song is from the 1955 film ‘Lagan’. From the first phase of his career, this film is the only one that OP Dutta had produced and directed (as opposed to the other films which he only directed for other production banners). The film was produced under the banner of OP Films, Bombay. The star cast of this film includes Nalini Jaywant, Sajjan, Shammi, Randhir, Om Prakash, David, Raj Mehra, Ram Avtar, Baij Sharma, Pandit Iqbal, Baby Naaz, Pappu, Shaam Lal, Uma Dutt, Shivraj, Parshuram, and Kanwar Kesho amongst others. The songs of this film are penned by Rajendra Krishan and the music is by Hemant Kumar. Interesting to note that Ravi is the assistant music director with Hemant Da.

One song of this film has already been showcased on our blog. Today’s song is a song of sadness and separation sung so wonderfully by Lata Mangeshkar. Listen and enjoy.

 

Song – Mujhe Nazar Se Utaar Kar Bhi (Lagan) (1955) Singer – Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Rajendra Krishan, MD – Hemant Kumar

 

Lyrics

mujhe nazar se utaar kar bhi
na chain paaya to kya karoge
mujhe nazar se utaar kar bhi
na chain paaya to kya karoge
jisey bhula ke chaley ho dil se
jisey bhula ke chaley ho dil se
wo yaad aaya to kya karoge
to kya karoge
mujhe nazar se utaar kar bhi
na chain paaya to kya karoge

chalo ye maana bagair mere
tumhaari raaten jawaan rahengi
chalo ye maana bagair mere
tumhaari raaten jawaan rahengi
magar jo bhoole se mere khwaabon ne
aa jagaya to kya karoge
to kya karoge
mujhe nazar se utaar kar bhi
na chain paaya to kya karoge

tumhaari mehfil mein roz hogi
nai kahaani naya fasaana
tumhaari mehfil mein roz hogi
nai kahaani naya fasaana
jo baaton baaton mein naam mera
zubaan pe aaya to kya karoge
to kya karoge
mujhe nazar se utaar kar bhi
na chain paaya to kya karoge
jisey bhula ke chaley ho dil se
jisey bhula ke chaley ho dil se
wo yaad aaya to kya karoge
to kya karoge
mujhe nazar se utaar kar bhi
na chain paaya to kya karoge

‘Pooja Ke Phool’ from 1964, is a production from AVM, Madras. It is directed by A Bheemsingh. True to the colors of the family dramas emanating from the south, this film is not much different that the regular run-of-the-mill emotionally loaded films coming from there. This film however has a slight sinister twist, in that a murder is part of the storyline. There is a certain amount of drama built around the trial in the court and the effort to nail the true culprit – a task that is made extremely challenging by the fact that the hero Shankar (roled played by Dharmendra) repeatedly asserts in the court that he admits his guilt and should be punished. The heroine Shanti (role played by Mala Sinha) who is the lawyer defending Shankar, has her work cut out for her, to get the hero freed, when he himself doesn’t want to be.

Add to that another twist, that the hero and the heroine are actually not made for each other in this storyline – the hero is already a married person. Yes, there are confusions galore, as circumstances (and the director’s writ) do not allow this fact to be known till some time into the film. Which gives the director a chance to squeeze in a romantically naughty song like this one.

Well, the song itself is a wonderful creation, in the category of ‘please-don’t-go’ songs. The highlight of this song is the superb on screen performance of Mala Sinha. Her mannerisms and the execution of the entire song sequence is definitely a hallmark performance.

The star cast of the film includes Mala Sinha, Dharmendra, Sandhya Roy, Gopikrishan, Madhumati, Nana Palsikar, Mohan Choti, Umesh Sharma, Sulochana Chatterjee, Leela Chitnis, Ashok Kumar, Nimmi, Pran, Shivraj, and Mukri. All songs are penned by Rajendra Krishan and the music for them is created by Madan Mohan.

Enjoy this lovely naughty song, as the heroine is trying to impede the departure of the hero, as he tries to make a get-away in the middle of the night. Asking of questions and checking for logic is not allowed in some such scenarios. 🙂

Song – Banda Parwar. . . Raat Ke Andhere Mein Yun Chori Chori Chale Kidhar  (Pooja Ke Phool) (1964) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Rajendra Krishan, MD – Madan Mohan

Lyrics

banda parwar. . .

banda parwar
banda parwar
ho o o
raat ke andhere mein yun
chori chori chale kidhar
oye hoye hoye
raat ke andhere mein yun
chori chori chale kidhar
banda parwar

taar aaya dekhiye
aap ke sasuraal se

dekhiye na. .
abhi abhi ayaa hai

taar aaya dekhiye
aap ke sasuraal se
saas kunwaari aap ki
baithi hai sattar saal se
miley agar
aha ha
koi achha var
haa haa
miley agar
koi achha var
bechaari ka abaad ho ghar
banda parwar
o ho ho
raat ke andhere mein yun
chori chori chale kidhar
banda parwar

bura na maano to main poochun
jhoothon ke sardar se
ae

bura na maano to main poochun
jhoothon ke sardar se
apna sar kyon phod rahe ho
sapnon ki deewaar se
deewaane ho

deewaane ho
anjaane ho
kya dekh rahe ho
aao idhar
banda parwar
o o o
raat ke andhere mein yun
chori chori chale kidhar
banda parwar

aap chhup kar
agar chale jaate
haal e dil hum
kabhi na keh paate
dil ki har baat
dil mein reh jaati
zindagi aansuon mein beh jaati

aap chhup kar
agar chale jaate. . .
haal e dil hum
kabhi na keh paate. . .
dil ki har baat
dil mein reh jaati
zindagi aansuon mein beh jaati
phir khwaabon ka
armaanon ka
phir khwaabon ka
armaanon ka
abaad kabhi na hota ghar
banda parwar
ho o o
raat ke andhere mein yun
chori chori chale kidhar
banda parwar
ho o o
raat ke andhere mein yun
chori chori chale kidhar
banda parwar

बंदा परवर॰ ॰ ॰

बंदा परवर
बंदा परवर
हो ओ ओ
रात के अंधेरे में यूं
चोरी चोरी चले किधर
ओय होय होय
रात के अंधेरे में यूं
चोरी चोरी चले किधर
बंदा परवर

तार आया देखिये
आप के ससुराल से

देखिये ना॰॰
अभी अभी आया है

तार आया देखिये
आप के ससुराल से
सास कुंवारी आपकी
बैठी है सत्तर साल से
मिले अगर
आहा हा
कोई अच्छा वर
हा हा
मिले अगर
कोई अच्छा वर
बेचारी का आबाद हो घर
बंदा परवर
ओ हो हो
रात के अंधेरे में यूं
चोरी चोरी चले किधर
बंदा परवर

बुरा ना मानो तो मैं पूछूं
झूठों के सरदार से

ए झूठे
बुरा ना मानो तो मैं पूछूं
झूठों के सरदार से
अपना सर क्यों फोड़ रहे हो
सपनों की दीवार से
दीवाने हो

अंजाने हो
ए ए
दीवाने हो
अंजाने हो
क्या देख रहे हो
आओ इधर
बंदा परवर
ओ ओ ओ
रात के अंधेरे में यूं
चोरी चोरी चले किधर
बंदा परवर

आप छुप कर
अगर चले जाते
हाल ए दिल हम
कभी ना कह पाते
दिल की हर बात
दिल में रह जाती
ज़िंदगी आंसुओं में बह जाती

आप छुप कर
अगर चले जाते॰॰॰
हाल ए दिल हम
कभी ना कह पाते॰॰॰
दिल की हर बात
दिल में रह जाती
ज़िंदगी आंसुओं में बह जाती
फिर ख्वाबों का
अरमानों का
फिर ख्वाबों का
अरमानों का
आबाद कभी ना होता घर

बंदा परवर
हो ओ ओ
रात के अंधेरे में यूं
चोरी चोरी चले किधर
बंदा परवर
हो ओ ओ
रात के अंधेरे में यूं
चोरी चोरी चले किधर
बंदा परवर

ना जाने क्यों॰ ॰ ॰ होता है ये ज़िंदगी के साथ
अचानक ये मन
किसी के जाने के बाद
करे फिर उसकी याद॰ ॰ ॰

Aah, Shyama. . . the vivacious, bubbly, chirpy, charming Shyama. That is the image that the mind always carries, of this spirited young lady, so full of life on the screen. Some memories and some reflections are so firmly engraved in the mind that it simply does not register or acknowledge the passage of time and the passing of eras. That is the beauty of these memories – that their beauty simply never fades away.

Today we pay tribute here on the blog to Mahendra Kapoor, one of the well-known voices of the golden era of Hindi music, on the occasion of his 9th death anniversary. There are many ways to start this tribute but, instead of “getting my eye in”, let me, Sehwag-style, straightaway go for it. By “it”, I mean the elephant in the room.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

September 2, 2017. The lady who made the fringe-cut hair style popular would have been 76. Yes, I am talking of Sadhana and that hair style called “sadhana cut”. I am sure every girl of the 1960s and 70s would have sported the style at least once in her lifetime. Apparently this look was inspired from the British actress Audrey Hepburn (some more on this later).
