Today’s song is from the film Lalkaar-1972.

It is not common to see me writing on a film after 1970. I have been writing on old films since 2012 and have written more than 1100 posts so far on this Blog alone. But on a cursory look at my own figures, I find that I have written less posts on songs from films after 1970. It is certainly not because they are not good, but because my comfort zone is films before 1970, especially before 1960. The stats for my posts say that I wrote

Decade Number of posts for songs of that decade
1931-1940 152
1941-1950 438
1951-1960 419
1961-1970 46

The rest are for films after 1970 and NFS.

I have always maintained that “not all songs before 1970 are good and not all songs after 1970 are bad. There are good and bad songs in every decade “. The point is I do not listen to songs after 1970 much, as much as those before 1970. Nevertheless, for some really good and appealing songs, I did write on songs from later films ….even for a song of 2018 !

I have selected today’s song because it is a special song. It is the only song sung by Mala Sinha as a Playback singer, though it was shot on her in the film. In the true sense it may not be a ‘ playback song’, but certainly it was pre-recorded and she lip synched on it on the screen. It is a duet with Manhar (Udhas)-younger brother of the more famous singer Pankaj Udhas.

Mala Sinha was an educated, hard working actress. Though she worked with leading Banners and was Heroine to well known Heroes, she was never counted among the Class I Heroines of her Times. She worked with many newcomers, like Dharmendra etc. Her career spanned a long time but she never got a single Filmfare Award, though nominated 4 times.

Mala Sinha was born in a Bengali Nepalese Christian family in Calcutta,on 11-11-1936. Mala Sinha claimed herself to be of a Bengali descent Nepali many years ago in a T.V. interview. They named her Alda. Her friends at school used to tease her by calling her Dalda (a brand of vegetable oil), so she changed her name to Mala. In her childhood she learnt dancing and singing.

Although she was an approved singer of All India Radio, she has sung only one duet-with Manhar- in the film Lalkar-1972. But as a singer she has done stage shows in many languages from 1947 to 1975.

Mala started her career as a child artist in Bengali films Jai Vaishno Devi followed by Shri Krishan Leela, Jog Biyog and Dhooli. Noted Bengali director Ardhendu Bose saw her acting in a school play and took permission from her father to cast her as a heroine in his film Roshanara (1952)-Bangla film, her cinematic debut.

After acting in a couple of films in Calcutta, Mala had to go to Bombay for a Bengali film. There she met Geeta Bali, a noted Bollywood actress, who was charmed by her and introduced her to film director Kidar Sharma. It was Sharma who cast her as a heroine in his Rangeen Ratein-56. Her first Hindi film was Badshah-54 opposite Pradeep Kumar, then came Ekadashi-55, a mythological film. Both failed, but her lead role in Kishore Sahu’s Hamlet-54, paired opposite Pradeep Kumar, fetched her rave reviews in spite of it failing at the box office. Films like Lai Batti (ac­tor Balraj Sahni’s only directorial venture), Nausherwan-E-Adil where she starred as the fair maiden Marcia in Sohrab Modi’s romance about forbidden love and Phir Subah Hogi, which was direc­tor Ramesh Saigal’s adapta­tion of Dosteovsky’s Crime and Punishment established Mala Sinha’s reputation as a versatile actress who took the maximum career risks by accepting unconventional roles.

Mala was a singer of some repute and used to sing for All India Radio; she was not allowed to sing playback (even for herself) in the movies with the lone exception being 1972’s Lalkar. In the 1950s, she had a string of hits opposite Pradeep Kumar like Fashion -1957, Detective -1958, Duniya Na Mane-1959 though their first two ventures had failed. The films she did with Pradeep Kumar were men-oriented. In 1957, noted Bollywood actor and film director Guru Dutt (the husband of Geeta Dutt) cast Mala in his film Pyaasa-1957 in a role originally intended for Madhubala. Mala gave a memorable performance as the relatively unsympa­thetic part of an ambitious woman who chooses to marry a rich man (played by actor Rehman) and have a loveless marriage rather than a poor, unsuccessful poet and her impoverished lover (played by Guru Dutt) whom she ditches. Pyaasa remains to this day a classic in the history of Indian cinema and a turning point for Sinha.

After Pyaasa her major successes were Phir Subah Hogi-1958 and Yash Chopra’s directorial debutsDhool Ka Phool -1959 that elevated her into a major dramatic star. There was no looking back for Sinha then as she was part of many successful movies from 1958 to the early ’60s like Parvarish -1958, Ujala, Main Nashe Mein Hoon, Duniya Na Mane, Love Marriage -1959, Bewaqoof -1960, Maya -1961, Hariyali Aur Rasta and Dil Tera Deewana -1962, Anpadh, Bombay Ka Chor -1962. Critics believe her career best performance was in Bahurani -1963, Gumrah, Gehra Daag, Apne Huye Paraye and Jahan Ara. Apart from pairing with Pradeep Kumar, her pairing opposite Raaj Kumar, Rajendra Kumar,Biswajit and Manoj Kumar in women-oriented films were appreciated by audiences, with her films opposite Biswajitbeing the most popular. She did 10 films with Biswajit. In 2007, they won the Star Screen Lifetime Achievement Award, calling them on stage together giving due respect to their popularity as a pair who have tasted box office success.

The most remarkable feature of Mala Sinha was that most of her 1960s and 1970s hits were fueled by her own star power as much as the heroes and most of the time her role was more powerful than the hero. Though she was pitted opposite her seniors like Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Kishore Kumar, Pradeep Kumar and when she acted opposite the emerging stars from late 1950s like Shammi Kapoor, Rajendra Kumar and Raaj Kumar, she made sure her role was as good as theirs.

In 1966, Sinha went to Nepal to act in a Nepali film called Maitighar when the Nepali film industry was still in its infancy. This was the only Nepali film she did in her career. Her hero in the film was an estate owner called Chidambar Prasad Lohani. Soon after, Mala Sinha married C. P. Lohani with the blessings of her parents. From the beginning theirs was a long-distance marriage with Lohani based in Kathmandu to look after his business and Sinha living in Bombay with their daughter Pratibha. She continued acting after her marriage.

From 1974, she cut down on her assignments as the lead actresses. She accepted strong character roles in films like 36 Ghante -1974, Zindagi -1976, Karmayogi -1978, Be-Reham -1980, Harjaee -1981, Yeh Rishta Na Tootay, Babu (film) and Khel, which were popular.

In the early ’90s Madhuri Dixit was promoted as new Mala Sinha in magazines. But, after 1994, she completely withdrew from industry and has given very few public appearances. In Dhool Ka Phool and B.R. Chopra’s Gumrah, she played the first unwed mother and adulterous wife respectively in Hindi cinema. As she grew older, she gracefully moved on to doing character roles that befitted her age. She was last seen in Zid -1994. Though Mala evinced as much interest in her daughter Pratibha’s career as her father did in her career, she was unable to achieve the same success for her daughter.(adapted from nett4you and wiki).

Mala Sinha came from Calcutta to make a career in Bombay films. In Calcutta she worked in a Bilingual film ‘Chitrangada-54’ in Bangla and Hindi. In 54 again, she did her first film in Bombay, Badshah-54, then came Hamlet-54, Riyasat-55 and Ekadashi-55. In all she did 105 films.

In all her interviews, Mala Sinha always quoted “Rangeen Raten”-56 with Shammi Kapoor as her first film in Bombay. She was ashamed of revealing that in film Riyasat-55, her Hero was Mahipal and in film Ekadashi-55 it was Trilok Kapoor. She always hid this fact. There are many Heroines who want to hide their struggling days. For example,in the film “Professor”-62 Shammi Kapoor’s Heroine was Kalpana. Though touted as her first film, her first film was Pyar ki Jeet-62, opposite Mahipal- a fact which Kalpana always hid from everyone.

Similarly, A grade Heroine Meena Kumari also had done several Mythological and costume films before Baiju Bawra took her high up and above other Heroines. Films like Veer Ghatotkach-49, Shri Ganesh Mahima-50, Laxmi Narayan-51, Hanuman Paataal vijay-51 and Alladin aur Jadui Chirag-52 had Mahipal as her Hero. In her later years, she always hid her earlier film Heroes.

Even comedian Johnny Walker, who is supposed to have made a beginning with Baazi-51, had earlier worked in “The last message or Aakhri paigham”-49. However this fact is not told by anyone.

Not only actors, but even singers do this. They hesitate to say that they first sang for C grade films. Take the case of Sudha Malhotra, who used to declare Arzoo-50 as her first film, under Anil Biswas, but she never told that earlier she had sung 3 songs in film Aakhri paigham-49, under the baton of Abid Hussein Khan, composer.

It is very unfortunate that once the artiste becomes famous, he tends to forget his humble beginning with a less known film or a composer. This is because they are ashamed of it. I feel the blame also goes to people who take their interview, because the interview takers do not do proper homework. Many times they do not know anything and simply note down whatever is told by the artiste.

Film Lalkaar-1972 was made by Sagar Art International, Bombay. It was directed by Ramanand Sagar – who became world famous later for screening his record making epic TV serial Ramayana from 25-1-1987 to 31-7-1988. The music was by kalyanji-Anand ji ably assisted by Jaykumar Parte – who was their assistant for many years. Parte is practically unknown to most people. He was not only the most wanted arranger in the industry, but he had given music to 4 Hindi films and 1 Marathi film. The other assistant was Babla-their own younger brother and a well known musician. The third assistant was Frank Fernando – one of the pMD pair of Roy-Frank duo who gave music to only 1 film, Gogola-1966.

The cast of the film lalkaar-1972 was Rajendra Kumar, Mala Sinha, Dharmendra, Kumkum, Dara Singh, Dev Kumar, Ramesh Deo, Nazir Hussain and a long list of other actors. Today’s duet song is the only Hindi film song sung by Mala Sinha in her career. She makes Debut here and ALL her songs are now covered on the Blog, with this song !

Song- Mere Mehboob meri baat tumhen kya maaloom(Lalkaar)(1972) Singers-Manhar Udhas, Mala Sinha (Debut Song), Lyricist- Hasrat Jaipuri, MD- Kalyanji – Anandji (asstt. Jay Parte)

Lyrics

Mere mehboob
meri baat
tumhen kya aa maaloom
meri dhadkan
mere jazbaat
tumhen kya aa maaloom
meri nazron ke sawaalaat
tumhen kya maaloom
kaise kat’te hain ye din raat
tumhen kya aa maaloom

naam lekar kabhi ek bar pukaara hota
teri awaaz ka kuchh humko sahaara aa hota

meri khamoshi bhi awaaz diya karti hai
baat munh se nahin
nazron se hua karti hai
jhooth
yoon bhi hoti hai mulaakaat
tumhen kya maaloom
tumhi rahte ho mere saath
tumhen kya maaloom

tum mujhse baat kyun nahin karte
darta hu kahi tum naraj na ho jao
pyar kuch jurm nahi hai jo dara karte ho
raaz apne se chhupate ho
ye kya karte ho

lab pe aa jaye agar raaj to vo raaz nahin
tumse keh doon ye mere ishq ka andaaz nahin
ek deewaane ke haalaat
tumhen kya maaloom
tumne bhadka diye jazbaat
tumhen kya maaloom

mere mehboob meri baat
tumhen kya aa maaloom

*Note: – Songs for films ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Bharat Darshan’ and ‘Fighter Sheela’ seems to be unavailable as of now).

‘Gaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ is directed by Naresh Kumar for Dimple Films, Bombay. He is also the producer of this movie. This movie was presented by Rajendra Kumar. The star cast includes Rajendra Kumar, Rekha, Sujit Kumar, Lalita Pawar, Satyadeep, Shamsher, Aarti, Ajit Sachdev, Sundar, Bhagwan, Kamaldeep, Kanhaiyyalal and others.

Dialogues of this movie are written by Rajinder Krishan. And editing of this movie is done by Govind Dalwadi. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.10.1972.

‘Gaaon Hamaaraa Shehar Tumhaaraa’ had four songs written by Rajinder Krishan and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lata Mangeshkar, Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle had given their voices to the songs in this movie. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

S No Song Title Singer/s
01 Nayi hawaa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chalaa Mohd Rafi
02 Ik pyaar karnewaale ne ik pyaar karnewaale se ye poochha Mohd Rafi
03 Kaise kahoon kis’se kahoon sharm ki hai baat Asha Bhonsle
04 Jaana hai jaana hai door kahin jaana hai Lata Mangeshkar

Today’s song is the first song in the movie, and it is played while the titles roll on. It is sung by Mohd Rafi, and on-screen Rajendra Kumar is lip-syncing the song. Rajendra Kumar is shown carrying his luggage and singing the song and telling the ‘gaaonwaalaas that he is going to ‘shehar’ now.

Some other artists, (whom I am unable to identify) can also be seen in the picturisation of this song which shows Rajendra Kumar’s journey from ‘village’ to ‘city’ and the city is none other than Bombay (current day Mumbai).

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

Let us now listen to the today’s song

With the today’s song the movie ‘Gaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ makes its debut on the blog.

Song – Nai Hawa Mein Udne Dekho Ban Ka Mor Chala (Gaaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara) (1972) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Rajinder Krishan, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

nayi hawa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

nayi hawa mein udne dekho ban ka mor chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo o
main to shehar ki ore chala

sunte hain shehar mein jab jab
saawan bhaadon aata hai
sunte hain shehar mein jab jab
saawan bhaadon aata hai
paani ki boondon ke badle
harey note barsaataa hai
bhar letein hai jholi
jiska jitna zor chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

ye bhi suna hai raat wahaan ki
din ko sharmaati hai
ye bhi suna hai raat wahaan ki
din ko sharmaati hai
deewaaron ko haath lagaao
to batti jal jaati hai
apne ghar to diya kabhi naa
saari raat jala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala

ye dharti aakaash wahaan bhi
hoga yaa naa hoga aa
ye dharti aakaash wahaan bhi
hoga yaa naa hoga aa
dekha jaayega kismat mein
jo bhi likha hoga
nikal pade jab ghar se
kyun naa karega raam bhala aa
apna gaon sambhaalo
main to shehar ki ore chala
apna gaon sambhaalo o
main to shehar ki ore chala
aon Hamaara

Hullo Atuldom

I have been wanting to send this song for almost a week or ten days now. I had first thought of 12th July which was the death anniversary of Jubilee Kumar a.k.a Rajendra Kumar. But, I was unable to, due to various reasons.

Then, yesterday, 20th July the birth anniversary of Rajendra Kumar- missed that too. Why? I was too busy attending (online) birthday parties. And reading all the blog-birthday posts. That simple.

But today is another opportunity to present this song to the blog-followers. Anand Bakshi – the lyricist- has his birth anniversary today. Would have been 91.

The song from the 1972 release “Gora Aur Kala” is composed by Laxmi-Pyare and sung by Mohd Rafi. The movie had a cast of Rajendra Kumar, Prem Chopra, Jagdeep, Madan Puri, Sundar, Premnah, Rajan Haksar, and two very young beauties (my personal favourites) Hema Malini and Rekha with Sulochana playing the mother of the two Rajendra Kumars (yes he played a double role in the movie). This song is sung by the Karan Singh (the better looking and well-mannered twin) in a disguise in the court. I haven’t seen the movie but I am sure that it is an attempt to fool Madan Puri who is on the throne (I think he plays Hema’s father), along with Prem Chopra and others in the court. The power of the song is seen in the fact that the Princess Anuradha (Hema) starts dancing to the song.

On reviewing what I have written in the beginning of this post, a thought crossed my mind. If Atulji had given us such excuses this blog would not have completed 13 years – 4,749 days – 16,484 posts. (as on 19th July). A statement (in Sudhirji’s post of the 19th) “Do you know that the average daily rate of posting is upwards of three posts per day. Try doing that seven days a week, 365 days a year, and continuously at that rate for 13 years. Try writing a letter each to three friends every day, day on day, for 13 years. My, does that no yet boggle the mind.” also set me thinking.

Hatsoff to Atulji for relentlessly giving us more than one song-a-day.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
—————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 146 # A tribute to Anand Bakshi- Song from ‘Goraa Aur Kaalaa-1972
———————————————–—————————–—

Today 21st July’2021 is the ninety-first (21.07.1930 – 30.03.2002) birth anniversary of Poet-Lyricist Anand Bakshi.
On this occasion, as a tribute to him, here is a song written by him for the movie ‘Goraa Aur Kaalaa’.

“Goraa Aur Kaalaa-1972” was directed by Naresh Kumar for ‘Shankar Movies, Bombay’. It was produced by Rajkumar Kohli.

It had Rajendra Kumar, Hema Malini, Rekha (Special role), Prem Chopra, Jagdeep, Madan Puri, Sulochana, Premnath, Sanjana, Sundar, Randhir, Hiralal, Bashir, Rajan Haksar, Ram Mohan, Kamal Deep, Tilak Raj, Prannath, Gulab Singh, Abdul Ghani, Ajiz Shaikh, Rashid Khan, Pandit Rammurti, Shobha, Sawan Kumar and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board 12.12.1972.

‘Goraa Aur Kaalaa-1972’ had six songs, all written by Anand Bakshi and composed to music by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Mohd Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Usha Mangeshkar and Mukesh had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs from this movie.

SNo Song Title Posted on the blog
01 Hoye hoye … ik to mera mastaanaa shabaab Being covered today
02 Tu mere sapnon ki raani banegi 16.02.2009
03 Tere nain … nashi de pyaale
04 Hoye … dhoom mach gayi dhoom, saathi
05 Dheere dheere bol koyi sun na le 18.07.2009
06 O allah … pardaa rukh e roshan se hataana

We can see from the above table that only two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog, and both were posted in the year 2009. Today’s song – the third song- from this movie will be appearing after a gap of more than twelve years.

The two songs posted in the blog are well known songs from this movie and I am aware of them. Another well known song, viz ‘dhoom mach gayi dhoom saathi’, too is known to be.

But the other three songs from this movie are unfamiliar to me. Even the movie is unfamiliar to me.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs of this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and on screen it is performed by Rekha and Hema Malini. This is a seductive song where Rekha is trying to seduce Rajendra Kumar (the ‘kaalaa’ Rajendra Kumar). Rajendra Kumar is shown drinking and thinking of Hema Malini instead and not Rekha 😊

Let us now enjoy this song …

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 20
—————————————————————————

One of the movies eligible for ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ today on 14.04.2020 is ‘Zindagi-1964’. The other movie is ‘Sardaar-1955’.

As many as five songs were posted on this dayn ten years ago (14.04.2010) on the blog as per details given below;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Muskuraa laadle muskuraa Zindagi-1964 08 of 12 songs posted
Muqaddar aajmaanaa chaahtaa hoon Door Ki Aawaaz-1964 All songs covered
Barkha ki raat mein he ho haa Sardaar-1955 06 of 09 songs posted
Dil e naadaan tujhe huaa kya hai Mirza Ghalib-1954 All songs covered
Hain sabse madhur wo geet Patita-1953 All songs covered

I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Zindagi-1964’. I had watched this movie during my stay at Parli-Vaijnath from 1985 to 1988.

So far, the following songs from “Zindagi-1964” have been posted on the blog;

Song Posted On
Ham pyaar ka saudaa karte hai ik baar 29.05.2009
Muskuraa laadle muskuraa 14.04.2010
Pehle miley thhey sapnon mein 31.07.2011
Hamne Jafaa na seekhi 06.02.2012
Ghungharwaa moraa chham chham baaje 24.02.2012
Ham dil ka kanwal denge jisko 28.09.2015
Ek naye mehmaan ke aane ki khabar hai 30.08.2019

I always associate this movie name with the song ‘Hamne jafaa na seekhi’. Other songs which are familiar to me are ‘ghunghrwaa moraa chham chham baaje’ (because of Mehmood) and ‘pehle miley thhey sapnon mein’. I had forgotten the other songs of this movie.

So, when I saw this movie still pending for ‘Yippeeee’ and due for ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ I checked its pending songs in HFGK and come across the today’s song which appeared to me as ‘new’ since it is not heard frequently. It is not a full song but can be called as a ‘longer snippet’ ( 🙂 ).

This is duet song sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle and written by Hasrat Jaipuri.

HFGK mentioned a ‘special note’ that Hasrat Jaipuri himself had confirmed about his penning this song.

This movie had total twelve songs (including one two-part song, which is already covered on the blog).

Music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

Today’s song is picturized on Rajendra Kumar and Vaijayantimala.

Let us now enjoy today’s song ….

Song-Aaj Bhagwaan ke charnon mein (Zindagi)(1964) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan
Both

Lyrics

aaj bhagwan ke charnon mein
jhukaa kar sar ko
Umr bhar saath nibhaane ki qasam khaate hain
raah jeewan ki ho ya maut ki manzil saathi
har jagah saath hi jaane ki qasam khaate hain

aasmaan toote ya
phat jaaye zameen ka seenaa aa
pyaar ka mahal banaane ki qasam khaate hain …

Devnagri Script lyrics (Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

आज भगवान् के चरणों में
झुका कर सर को
उम्र भर साथ निभाने की
क़सम खाते हैं
राह जीवन की हो या
मौत की मंज़िल साथी
हर जगह साथ निभाने की
क़सम खाते हैं

आसमान टूटे या
फट जाए ज़मीन का सीना आ
प्यार का महल बनाने की
क़सम खाते हैं …

Blog Day : 4178 Post No. : 15354

Yesterday (25 december 2019) was the birth centenary of Naushad (25 december 1919- 5 May 2006). The special occasion called for a post but my internet connection let me down and that day ended up becoming a dot day- the third such day in the year.

According to my calculations Naushad had composed music for 601 songs in 64 Hindi movies.

61 out of these 64 movies are represented in the blog. The first four movies where Naushad was the music director are “Prem Nagar”(1940), “Darshan”(1941), “Maala”(1941) and “Nayi Duniya” (1942). All available songs of these movies are covered in the blog but still some songs (unavailale as of now) are not posted so these movies are unYIPPEED. After that, each and every Naushad movie beginning from “Sharda”(1942) till “Ganwaar”(1970) are already YIPPEED in the blog ! Moreover, two more movies viz “Aaina”(1974) and “Dharam Kaanta”(1982) are also YIPPEED.

The only Naushad movies (apart from the four movies of 1940s), whose songs are not fully covered in the blog are “Paakeeza”(1971), “Taangewaala”(1972), “My Friend”(1974), “Sunahra Sansaar”(1975), “Chambal Ki Raani”(1979), “Love and God”(1986), “Aawaaz De kahaan Hai”(1990), “Teri Paayal Mere Geet”(1993), “Guddu”(1995) and “Taj Mahal”(2005).

Overall 535 out of 601 Naushad compositions are already showcased in the blog.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Taangewaala”(1972). This song is sung by Rafi. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

The song is picturised as a Tanga song, with Rajendra Kumar playing the Taangewaala and driving the taanga holding a small child his arms. It is very risky, according to present day safety standards. Rajendra Kumar would get fined heavily and his tonga driver licence cancelled by traffic police if he was to operate in present day India. 🙂

This song is an appropriate song for the occasion because Rafi too had his birth anniversary on 24 december, one day prior to Naushad’s birth anniversary.

Thhap thhup thhip ki taal pe mera ghoda chaal dikhaaye

Blog Day : 3674 Post No. : 14561

6 August is remembered as Hiroshima day. It was on this day that in 1945 that Hiroshima became the first unfortunate city to be subjected to the dropping of Atom Bomb.

Three days later, on 9 august 1945, another bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. Kokura was the primary target, but that was obscured by cloud and smoke, so the secondary target of Nagasaki became the unfortunate victim of this second atom bomb, named ‘Fat Man’. The bomb exploded at 11:02 a.m. at an approximate altitude of 1,800 feet. 35, 000 people, nearly 15 % of the population of the city were killed.

These two bombings finally persuaded Japan to surrender and that signalled the end of second World war.

The destruction that Atom bombs could cause have led to consternation among many people. It also made some countries realise that they too needed to have atom bombs for their own safety (as a deterrence). Some countries developed the capabilities on their own while a few others did so by stealing nuclear technologies from other countries.

There have been calls to ban nuclear bombs. The first five nuclear bomb owning countries have formed their own exclusive club. Their rules are quite discriminatory. They can have their nuclear bombs, but other countries are prohibited to have them. Moreover, some of these nuclear powered countries keep on threatening others about using them. USA have threatened to use they atom bombs many times in the past. North Korea is well known to threaten its neighbours and even USA with its atom bomb. A few former Pakistani politicians used to threaten India with their atom bomb quite regularly.

To say that killing by atom bombs is bad but killing by normal bombs is not bad is hypocritical. If one looks at people killed during “normal” bombing, then more people were killed by “normal” bombing of Tokyo on 10 march 1945 than were killed by either of the two atom bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Likewise more people have been killed by AK 47 rifles than by Atom bombs. So ultimately the call should be to end violence by banning all kinds of weapons. It is not that atom bombs should be banned but “normal” weapons should be used with impunity. In fact, defence industry is a thriving industry where suppliers often sell the same weapons to two warring nations. There are some countries that spend more money on their military than for the development of their people.

“Aman”(1967) is a movie that deals with the subject of atom bomb and its effects on the victims. “Rajendra Kumar is a doctor who volunteers to go to Japan to help survivors of the Hiroshima-Nagasaki atomic blasts. The film deals with his experiences in Japan, the physical and mental effects of the atomic explosions on the survivors, and so on.”- This is what Raja wrote about this movie while covering a song from the movie.

Though the movie covers a serious and sobering topic, a Hindi movie cannot help having its share of songs. “Aman”(1967) had seven songs in it. Six songs have been covered in the past. Here are their details:-

The song, the seventh and final song from the movie is sung by Rafi. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. The song speaks about the barbaadi of Hiroshima. Today is 9 august 2018, and atom bomb was dropped on Nagasaki on 9 august 1945, exactly 73 years ago.

With this sobering song, “Aman”(1967) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Hullo Atulites

The excitement surrounding the 10th anniversary has not yet subsided. We are awaiting posts from a few regulars, hope they don’t hide behind the excuse of laziness and other similar reasons 🙂

22nd July is the 95th birth anniversary of Mukesh Chand Mathur better known the world over as Mukesh; the man who was the voice of Raj Kapoor (mostly), Dilip Kumar, Feroz Khan, Manoj Kumar, Sunil Dutt etc.

He was born in Delhi to Zorawar Chand Mathur and Chand Rani. The music teacher who came home to teach his sister found a pupil in Mukesh who would listen from the adjoining room. His voice was first noticed by Motilal, a distant relative, when he sang at his sister’s wedding. Motilal took him to Mumbai and arranged for music lessons with Pandit Jagannath Prasad. During this period Mukesh was offered a role as an actor-singer in a Hindi film, “Nirdosh” (1941). His first song was “Dil Hi Bujha Hua Ho Toh” as an actor-singer for “Nirdosh”. He got his break as a playback singer for actor Motilal in 1945 with the film Pehli Nazar with music composed by Anil Biswas and lyrics written by Aah Sitapuri (would like to know more about him).
The first song that Mukesh sang for a Hindi film was “Dil Jalta Hai To Jalne De”. He was a Saigal fan (I don’t know of many who were not a fan of Saigal) and used to imitate his idol. It is said that when Saigal first heard the song “Dil Jalta Hai To Jalne De” he is said to have remarked, “I don’t recall singing this song.”

Naushad Ali helped him form his own style and before he became voice of Raj Kapoor he had a string of hits with Dilip Kumar in “Mela”, “Andaz”, “Anokhi Ada” etc. His other hits with Dilip Kumar were “Anokha Pyar” with Anil Biswas, “Madhumati” with Salil Choudhary, “Yahudi” with Shankar Jaikishan etc.

Mukesh recorded about 130 songs for Shankar- Jaikishan followed by Kalyanji Anandji. A few years back I had gone to an “Anandji Nite” and was drowned in songs by Mukesh; though there were a few Manna Dey and Kishore Kumar songs too in that program but the number of songs of Mukesh were more. (but I have no complaints, I enjoyed myself)

Many of his songs are still popular and “kai baar yu bhi dekha hain, yeh jo man ki seema rekha hain” from Rajnigandha got him a National Award for Best Playback Singer for the year 1973. His Filmfare Awards were for “Sab kuch seekha humne” Anari, 1959; “Sabse bada nadaan wahi hai” Pehchan, 1970; “Jai bolo beimaan ki” Be-imaan, 1972; and “Kabhi kabhie mere dil mein” Kabhi Kabhie, 1976.

He complained of chest pain when on a tour to the USA, was rushed to a hospital but was pronounced dead. Lata Mangeshkar completed the concert with his son Nitin Mukesh and bought the body home where a grand funeral was held. On getting the news of his death Raj Kapoor is said to have burst into tears and remarked “I Have lost my Voice.”

Many of his songs were released after his death. “Dharam Veer”; “Amar Akbar Anthony”; “Khel Khiladi Ka”; “Darinda” and “Chandi Sona” in 1977 & in 1978 “Aahuti”, “Paramatma”, “Tumhari Kasam” and “Satyam Shivam Sundaram”. His last known release was for the movie Chand Grahan in 1997 a good twenty years after he went away.

The song with this post is one which was very popular in its times and is still heard on AIR’s Vividh Bharati. It was written by Anand Bakshi who would have turned 88 on 21st July. (Today I am not writing anything about how much I love his work) He wrote it for “Aahuti” which was a movie with a standard storyline, made extremely popular by Manmohan Desai’s movies and B. R. Chopra’s “Waqt” – meaning the movie was a story of a family which gets separated at the start of the movie and reunites before the climax :). The movie had a star cast headed by Rajendra Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Rakesh Roshan, Parveen Babi, Zaheera, Asha Sachdev and Ajit heading the supporting cast. The movie had five songs one of which “kash aisa hota” has been posted. Today’s song is courtesy Avinashji who was generous enough to send me the lyrics which he had written out back in 2013. Thank you Avinashji specially for adding the Devanagari version too.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post was liked by my mother at the time when it was a regular on the radio waves. Specially the lines about aate mein mitti, chaawal mein kankar behisaab hai. I suppose those were the times when people had to rely on groceries from ration-shops (kids of the new millennium will not know what the fuss is all about). I remember people used to stand in queues to buy common things like soaps, oils, and other essentials. Aah! Those were different times and a different way of living.

The song with this post also reminds me of the discussion we had on the blog when the song Sun-Saahiba-Sun-Pyaar-Ki-Dhun/from ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’ (1986) was posted; about how Raj Kapoor used some of Hasrat Jaipuri’s lyrics in some of the movies he acted in post 1970. The sources that I referred to before writing this post gives credit to both Ravindra Jain and Hasrat Jaipuri for this song. We have knowledgeable followers of the blog who will enlighten us further on this.

A thought crossed my mind as I sat through the video of this song – if we see Rishi Kapoor on-screen these days it feels like we are seeing Raj Kapoor. The thought got confirmed recently after I saw ‘102 Not Out’ (2018) where Rishi plays a 75-year-old adorable, easily-irritable old man. I had to see the movie – how could I not see an Amitabh Bachchan – Rishi Kapoor movie :). Nice movie should be seen at least once.

With this post we remember the original showman of Bollywood – Raj Kapoor- on his 30th death anniversary. I remember reading about his demise in the newspaper on 3rd or 4th June – there were no instant messaging systems then and getting news about happenings in Mumbai, in local newspapers in Tamil Nadu (I had just begun my married life in a small town of TN that day) was generally a day or two late – different times and a different way of living.

Raj Kapoor had been conferred the Dadasaheb Phalke award that year. I remember seeing the event live on Doordarshan when he was assisted on to the stage. He collapsed at the event and was rushed to AIIMS New Delhi where he passed away almost a month later due to complications arising from his asthma. But his legacy lives in the form of his work as an actor, producer and director. His movies had great music and songs with meaningful lyrics. Whether it was “Sajan Re Jhooth Mat Bolo Khuda Ke Paas Jaana Hai” or “Ik Din Bik Jaayega Maati Ke Mol” – his songs conveyed truths of life. He spoke of the life of the common man in ‘Dil Ka Haal Suney Dilwaala‘  and of eternal love in “Main Na Rahoongi Tum Na Rahoge Phir Bhi Rahengi Nishaaniyan“. His songs had a worldwide appeal; it is said that his “Awaara Hoon” is remembered even today in Russia. What more do I say about this legend, it will be “chota munh aur badi baat”.

Let us get on to the song of the day. It is from the 1975 Naresh Kumar produced and directed ‘Do Jaasoos’. Raj Kapoor along with Rajendra Kumar played detectives out to trace a millionaire’s daughter and, in the process, catch a gang of smugglers led by Prem Chopra. Singer Shailendra Singh made his acting debut in this movie. Hasrat Jaipuri and Ravindra Jain are credited as lyricists and Jain was also the music director. Today’s song is in the voice of Mukesh and Rafi. Raj Kapoor considered Mukesh his singing voiceand Rafi was the chosen voice for Rajendra Kumar on a majority of occasions. The song is a take on the state of the nation at that point of time, but I think it is still relevant.

Remembering Raj Kapoortoday on his 30th anniversary of passing away.

[Ed Note: As per Geet Kosh, Hasrat Jaipuri and Ravindra Jain are jointly credited as lyricist for this song.]

Mukesh + Mohammed Rafi

Lyrics

do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai
kaun hai sacha
kaun hai jhoota
har chehere pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai

pyaas lagey to doodh piyo,
doodh mein paani milta hai
mandir mein bhi aaj diya
naqli ghee ka jalta hai
na asli mithaai hai
na asli malaai hai
maava hai sinhgaade ka,
kya zaalim halwaai hai
aate mein mitti chaawal mein kankar behisaab hai
kaun hai sachcha
kaun hai jhootha
har chehre pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai

zehar dawaa mein shaamil hai
zehar dawaa se behtar hai
zehar bhi naqli milta hai
marna bhi ab doobhar hai
desh ke sachche dushman hain
yeh jo milaawat karte hain
in ki badaulat kitne log
maut se pehle marte hain
aise logon ko pakadaana
sabse bada sawaab hai
kaun hai sacha,
kaun hai sachcha
kaun hai jhootha
har chehre pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho socho
zara samajho samjho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai

jab dekho hartaalen hain
jaane kiski chaalen hain
samjhaute ka naam nahi
agni mein ghee daale hain
deewaane toofan karen
logon ko hairaan karen
nehru ji ko bhool gaye
baapu ka apmaan karen
nehru ji ko bhool gaye,
baapu ka apmaan karen
apna hi ghar phoonk rahe hain
kaisa inqlaab hai
kaun hai sachcha
kaun hai jhootha
har chehre pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho ho
zara samajho ho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji

do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai
kaun hai sachcha
kaun hai jhootha
har chehre pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai
duniya badi kharaab hai

दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है
कौन है सच्चा
कौन है झूठा
हर चेहरे पे नकाब है
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है

प्यास लगे तो दूध पियो
दूध में पानी मिलता है
मंदिर में भी आज दिया
नकली घी का जलता है
ना असली मिठाई है
ना असली मलाई है
मावा है सिंघाड़े का
क्या ज़ालिम हलवाई है
आटे में मिट्टी चावल में कंकर बेहिसाब हैं
कौन है सच्चा
कौन है झूठा
हर चेहरे पे नकाब है
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है

जहर दवा में शामिल है
जहर दवा से बेहतर है
जहर भी नकली मिलता है
मरना भी अब दूभर है
देश के सच्चे दुश्मन हैं
ये जो मिलावट करते हैं
इनकी बदौलत कितने लोग
मौत से पहले मरते हैं
ऐसे लोगों को पकड़ाना
सबसे बड़ा सवाब है
कौन है सच्चा
कौन है झूठा
हर चेहरे पे नकाब है
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है

जब देखो हड़तालें हैं
जाने किसकी चालें हैं
समझौते का नाम नहीं
अग्नि में घी डालें हैं
दीवाने तूफान करें
लोगों को हैरान करें
नेहरू जी को भूल गए
बापू का अपमान करें
नेहरू जी को भूल गए
बापू का अपमान करें
अपना ही घर फूँक रहे हैं
कैसा इन्क़लाब है
कौन है सच्चा
कौन है झूठा
हर चेहरे पे नकाब है
ज़रा सोचो हो
ज़रा समझो हो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी

दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है
कौन है सच्चा
कौन है झूठा
हर चेहरे पे नकाब है
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
ज़रा सोचो
ज़रा समझो
ज़रा संभल के राहियो जी
दो जासूस करें महसूस
के दुनिया बड़ी खराब है
दुनिया बड़ी खराब है
