#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—-
#Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 88 #

Welcome all to this post which comes after a long gap. I call it a ‘Long gap’ because this post was conceived by me ‘long back’ like many other posts of mine which remained unfinished aften getting started due to various reasons.

My last post on the blog was on 20th November. It was posted when I going through some health-related issues. I had to visit a Hospital in Nairobi, which is around 125 kms from my base station. Since some tests were to be conducted, I had to stay in Nairobi for four days. I stayed with colleagues working there in the Head Office. That didn’t allow me to concentrate on posts though I continued listening to music and watching songs. I even kept reminding our authors about movies that were falling under the ‘blog-ten-year challenge’.

The visit to the Hospital and Doctor made me recall many Hindi movies that had stories woven around ‘medical profession or serious medical complications’ (or diseases, if it is the right word?).

This time I had to specially visit ‘Dil Ka Doctor’. Its English translation ‘cardiologist’ has entirely different connotations from the Hindi word. This offers me material for a separate post provided I came across a suitable song to go with that proposed article.
.
T was another Doctor in India (in ‘Atulites WhatsApp’ group) who was already aware about my ‘dil ka haal’, and was already providing me guidance on the symptoms so that ‘I can bounce back’ without thinking that ‘beemaari ho to aisi ho jiska naam kisi Viceroy se kam naa lage’:)😊

The tests were conducted and results were awaited after two days (due to weekend holidays), I had realized that the problem was not serious and everything was going to be ok. The worries were mainly ‘Beemari ka shaq’like Doctor Kulkarni’s ‘Main usi shaq ka ilaaj karta hoon’, and hence the ‘tests’:)

Finally, the results were ‘declared’ and everything was well in order except a minor ‘Blood Pressure’ on the higher side. I thanked both the Doctors!!!

***

The movie of today’s song has a storyline around ‘Doctors’ or medical profession. But today’s post has nothng to do with that. This covers an an entirely different story behind it.

People of different generations have different taste for music and naturally everybody’s musical nostalgia keeps growing according to the surroundings they grow in and/or even the circumstances they live in (I think so).

Music lovers have their musical nostalgia, which depends on factors like the generation/ backgrounds/ circumstances in which they grow up. This musical nostaligia gets triggered up whenever they are reminded of those days.

Sometimes, people of different generations/ background/ circumstances pass on their brand of musical nostalgia to another (viz younger generation) music lovers. This results in the curious situation when music lovers in their teenns or twenties start loving vintage era music created during the times of his forefathers.

People coming in contact with me are slowly coming to know about my love for Hindi songs and Hindi movies. Some of them who become close friends have also come to know about our blog and my activities for the blog.

Assuming that you are considered a music lover, sometimes people approach you with their music related query. A query , that can stump even music “experts” is when we are asked to tell the details of a song whose details are known only partially or vaguely.

Most of the times I am able to provide the details or answer mkost of the time, but sometimes the challenge is quite tough.

For instance, take the example of a song which someone has heard but he remembers very few details of the song. And hewants you to find that song for him, without providing the usual details about mukhda of the song, or its tune, the artists, or the movie. Only thing he can tell is that this song is picturised on a ‘lady wearing white-blue saree and singing with some ladies sitting around a sea-beach or kisi nadi ke kinaare?

With such sketchy details, you are asked to find the song, because you claim to be a music expert songs and movies? You are also challenged and mocked that if you cannot find this song then
you should not talk about songs of movies 🙂 , chhod do gaane sun’na aur filmon ki baatein karna 😊 .

Anybody in my place would feel like my honour is at stake, and would definitely give this challenge a serious try, so I did …

It happened on one such week-end get together on Saturday evening here in the camp (where we are staying in Kenya). We regularly have such get togethers. If the get together is big and the occasion so demands, then listening to songs and even dancing becomes customary. This calls for a separate detailed post in future. 😊

It was in one such get together that our friend a QC guy, fifteen years younger to me challenged me when we were enjoying listening to songs. This guy wanted me to find a song for him. He must have watched this song on TV somewhere. What he remembered of it was that it is sung by a lady in ‘blue-white saree’ with ‘some ladies sitting around a ‘river bank’ or ‘sea-beach’ (he was not sure).

This guy who was born in early 1980s had one favourite Hindi song.

Guess which?

‘Do ghoont mujhe bhi pilaa de o saaki dekh phir hota hai kya’

He had listened to this song somewhere while he was with his friend on a long drive and since then this song was the most liked Hindi song for him. He is from Andhra so he is not aware of that much of Hindi songs, except few like the above. And, whenever there is a party, he would ask us to play this song so that he can enjoy it 🙂

We are aware that this song is from the movie ‘Jheel Ke Us Paar’ and the year of the movie is 1973 🙂 (and surprisingly this song has not been posted yet on the blog 🙂 )

Now given the challenge, I had to find him this song lip synced by a lady with a blue or white saree, so I was looking for hints. 🙂

The first song that readily came to my mind was the title song from ‘Jheel Ke Us Paar’ and the second thing I made up in my mind was that the song he was looking for must be a ‘haunting song’ or somewhat sad song like ‘naa koi umang hai’ so I started searching on YouTube by entering terms like ‘woman singing a song near sea-beach, river’, woman in white saree singing a song, heroine singing along river bank, sea-beach etc etc

I was sure that the song this guy was looking for must be a ‘haunting song’ (and not his fault though) because I know ‘gham ke chhod ke manaao rang raili’ was not in a white saree, then I thought white saree means should be a widow singing a song or like that.

After browsing couple of songs like ‘naina barse’ I turned to the songs of ‘Mera Saaya’ and ‘Anita’. Now, searching in YouTube has an advantage of suggestions appearing according to your search. (And over the years I have also learnt entering ‘out of the box’ search terms to find a song, it had successfully worked many times 🙂 )

And there with the songs of Anita in the suggestions I found this song …

Can you guess this song my friend was looking for was ‘sun ri pawan, pawan purvaiyya’…

My friend bowed to me, but I told him my friend it is not a white saree song but a blue saree with white border song !!

But I must admit that while my friend was correct in mentioning the scenario. It was I who interpreted it wrong and I was searching with wrong terms and still landed on the right song …

Also, he never mentioned that the song he was looking for is where the heroine is making a ‘baalu ka ghar’ (sand home 🙂 or is it a ‘mud-home’?) on the sea-beach.

Incidentally both the songs that my friend likes are the songs where the heroine is blind.

And our team member Pam Harvey has on his blog covered some blind women songs from Hindi movies in his article here.

And finally, the song we were looking for was a ‘happy song’ instead of a ghost song or haunting song which I presumed it should be.

For today’s post I am presenting a song which I think fits with the theme which I imagined was the theme for song my friend was looking for. 🙂

This song is from the 1980 movie ‘Bandish’, and it is performed on screen by Hema Malini where she is trying to ‘trap’ Rajesh Khanna by posing as a ‘bhatakti aatma’.

I remember to have watched this movie in our colony club during regular weekly screening may be in 1982-1983, I think.

‘Bandish-1980’ was directed by K. Bappaiah for ‘Suresh Productions, Madras’. It was produced by D. Rama Naidu. It had Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Danny, Om Prakash, Asrani, Jeevan, Om Shivpuri, Madan Puri, Mohan Choti, Pinchoo Kapoor, Jagdish Raj, Maruti, Yousuff, Ranveer, Umesh Khanna, Prem Kumar, Dharmesh, Vijay Kumar, Shashiraj, Ganesh Nagpal, Raj Baldev Raj, Vijay Kumar, Kiron, Bedi, Pradeep Jain, Bindiya Goswami, Nalini Jaywant, Manorama, Preeti Ganguly and Tanuja, Padmini Kapila, Vakkalanka Padma, Ashoo, Munni.

Story of this movie was written by V.C. Kuganathan. K.A. Marthand was the Chief Editor of this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.10.1980.

The movie had five songs composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. Lyrics of all the songs were written by Anand Bakshi.

So far only one song from this movie – ‘Rang bhare mausam se rang churaa ke’ has been posted on the blog and that was on 04.08.2011.

Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Incidentally there was only one Lata song – solo song – in this movie and this song is the one being presented here today.

(PS: recently there was a comment by Peevesie’s Mom ji regarding this ‘song searching or finding a song type issue which I am forgetting where it was, though I had noted the point earlier for this post 😊 )

Blog Day :

4089 Post No. : 15230

Today (28 september 2019) is the 90th birthday of Lata Mangeshkar (DoB 28 september 1929).

She started her playback career in 1940s and she went on to sing till early 2000s, viz for seven decades ! Mindboggling indeed.

She sang just under 5700 songs in Hindi movies according to our estimate. The blog has 3475 of her songs and so we are one of the rare places on internet where so many of her songs can be accessed at one place.

Another 2000 odd of her songs remain uncovered. it is a matter of time before her remaining songs (that are available) will also find representation in the blog.

On this occasion, here is a song from “Dard”(1981). “Dard”(1981) was produced by Shyam Sundar Shivdasani and directed by Ambreesh Sangal fo Murghan Enterprises, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rajesh Khanna, Hema Malini, Poonam Dhillon, Om Shivpuri, Krishn Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Shashi Kiran, Madhup Sharma, Kamaldeep, Harjeet, Poornima Jairam, Mazhar Khan (2), Master Raju etc wih special appearance by Ranjeeta.

The movie had seven songs in it. Four songs have already been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth song from “Dard”(1981) to appear in the song. This song is sung by Lata. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Khayyam.

The song is picturised as an expression of love song on Hema Malini and Rajesh Khanna. The song is not lip synced by Hema Malini rather it gets plays in the background.

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

Song-Na jaane kya hua jo toone chhoo liya(Dard)(1981) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Khayyam

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Naa jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Nikhar nikhar gayee
Sanwar sanwar gayee
Nikhar nikhar gayee
Sanwar sanwar gayee
Banaa ke aainaa tujhe ae jaaneman
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Bikhraa hai kaajal fizaa mein
Bheegi bheegi hai shaamein
Boondon ki rimjhim se jaagi
Aag thhandi hawaa mein
Aajaa sanam
ye haseen aag ham
Len dil mein basaa
Naa jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Aanchal kahaan
main kahaan hoon
Ye mujhe hosh kyaa hai
Ye bekhudi toone di hai
Pyaar kaa ye nashaa hai
Sun le zaraa
saaz e dil gaa rahaa
Hai naghmaa teraa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa aa

Kaliyon ki ye sej mehke
Raat jaage milan ki
Kho jaayein dhadkan mein teri
Dhadkanen mere mann ki
Aa paas aa
teri har saans mein
Main jaaun samaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Khilaa gulaab ki tarah
Meraa badan
Nikhar nikhar gayee
Sanwar sanwar gayee
Banaa ke aainaa tujhe ae jaaneman
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa
Na jaane kyaa huaa
Jo toone chhoo liyaa

Blog Day : 4017 Post No. : 15124

The years roll by – time stops for no one.

And, just like that, it is now 7 years since that day in 2012.

I still remember that day very well – I first got the news on Facebook.

One of my friends had posted “vaada tera vaada”, saying “RIP Rajesh Khanna”.

It shook me – I immediately checked Twitter for validation. (Now Twitter is known to post fake death news from time to time. Not so long ago, they had posted news of Mumtaz’s death – thankfully, fake.) But I wanted a second source.

Sadly, and I realized this very soon with a sinking feeling, the news on 18th July 2012 was not fake. Rajesh Khanna (or Kaka, as he was more affectionately known) HAD passed away. For the past year, he had been suffering from cancer – and the cancer had finally won.

I felt miserable that day. Not that I didn’t know he was suffering from cancer, but I never expected him to go when he did.

That day my Facebook status was
Kya samjhega ye aalam koi
Badaa bhaari hai dil ye mera
Ki le gaye ho saath safar pe tumhaare
Tukda jo kabhi tha dil ye mera

Rubbish poetry, I know – but hey, it did reflect my mood.

Those were the times when I’d seek refuge in my blog. I’d just dump my thoughts onto my blog, for my own sake. It was my way of releasing my feelings, not suppressing them within.

That day too I went to my blog, and wrote a piece for Rajesh Khanna. A personal piece – well, about as personal a piece that one can write about someone he has never met, someone whose many character flaws one acknowledges, and yet someone who was a big part of one’s childhood.

I’ve written about Kaka several times here, and I don’t want to bore readers by repeating stuff.

I’ll just say a few things, and then move on to the song.

Firstly, most times when I discuss Kaka with others (I don’t do much of this anymore), I get the following reactions.
Firstly, a criticism of his acting – mostly his set mannerisms, and his hamming.
Secondly, criticism about him as a person.

I’ve noticed that people who dislike Kaka, tend to dislike him rather intensely. 🙂 On one, or both, of the above counts.

And, I must admit, they would not be wrong.

The first point first.

Without doubt, Kaka’s acting lost its freshness after a few years – and was a big reason for his decline. His superstar success lasted only a few years. During this period, he acted in a whole lot of films. Both he, and his producers, wanted to cash in on his name. Just his name used to be enough to sell a film. Sure, the films were all successful – Kaka holds the record for maximum number of consecutive hits.

But over-exposure comes with its risks. Especially when you’re boxed into a method of acting, expected to conform to set mannerisms, and a set dialogue delivery style. Yes, they made you successful, but style wears out after a while. Kaka’s mannerisms did become an issue. That the storylines also were beginning to get thin, did not help.

Much later in his career, we got to see a different Rajesh Khanna. Not THE superstar anymore, he could afford to act differently, in different roles. Let’s not forget he got his break in films by winning an acting contest, so he couldn’t have been that bad an actor. 🙂

Now, to the second point.

Again, I have to agree. It’s no secret that Kaka allowed success to get to his head. His unprofessional, and possibly even mean, behaviour with colleagues and others, left a lot of people bitter. No doubt many would have been happy to see him go down. A point made even more stark when compared with the upcoming star, Amitabh Bachchan, who was the model professional actor, punctual and polite.

I will not defend Kaka on this front at all. Much later in life, he did realize this himself.

All I will say is, every one of us has failings. Maybe if Kaka’s success had been more gradual, he’d have been a different person. Failure teaches us much more than success – Amitabh had a string of failures before becoming a superstar.

One person’s life is often a lesson for another. Just as people can tell aspiring youngsters “Look at Amitabh – how he struggled early in his career, but his perseverance and professionalism made him a superstar”, they can also say “Look at Rajesh Khanna – how he let success get to his head at a young age, and destroyed his career and relationships”.

One can learn from both.

To me, while I accept these criticisms, I will always remember, and thank, Rajesh Khanna for giving me many wonderful memories in my childhood.

That tilt of the head, that smile, that kurta, that dialogue delivery – today people might mock all of this, but in those days, these are what millions swooned over. That “Pushpa, I hate tears” line is still one of the best-known lines in Hindi cinema.

His films of that era made me feel good when I saw them in the early 70s. Later, when I saw them again, I’d still smile at “rona kabhi nahin rona”, “yahaan wahaan saare”, “nainon mein nindiya hai”, “ye shaam mastaani” and a whole lot of other songs. They’d bring back memories of my childhood.

Like one of my best friends (in class I) would always sing “pyaar deewana hota hai” from Kati Patang. It was his favourite song. I liked it a lot too, but I’d counter him with “ye shaam mastaani”. I know it sounds silly, but these are not just songs for me – they have memories attached to them. Like the incident attached to “o mere dil ke chain” – I’ve discussed the incident here earlier.

And that’s the thing. Each person’s memories are different, and therefore connect with someone is different. And while I acknowledge all Kaka’s failings, I also want to give him back a little bit of that love that I got from watching his films during my childhood.

That’s also the reason for this post. I haven’t written for a while now, but Avinashji requested me to write a post for this occasion. I was hesitant, since I sincerely believe I’ve lost my writing ability. I even told Avinashji “I can’t write anything longer than a tweet now” :-). But he was kind enough to share with me a whole lot of Kaka songs not posted yet, so I could easily pick one.

Now to the song.

Initially I thought of posting a sad song, considering it is on Kaka’s death anniversary. But then I thought again.

What I’d like to remember most of Kaka is the joy I got from watching his films, from before his decline. I think, from up there, he’d also probably like most people to remember him for those films.

So today’s song is from one of his early films – Bandhan (1969). I remember seeing this film long ago, though I don’t remember the story now.

By the way, it is exactly 50 years since this film was released. 1969 was a milestone year for Kaka – this was the year he became a superstar with Aradhana. And Do Raaste was a huge hit too.

The song “jaana hai to jao” shows early glimpses of the superstar-to-be. One can see some of those mannerisms that would become his hallmark in the coming years. And it is always fun to see Kaka and Mumtaz together, even if this was a less-known film than their more famous films to come.

The song is in the voices of Mahendra Kapoor and Asha Bhosle. Not surprising that Mahendra Kapoor was used, considering music is by Kalyanji-Anandji. The MK-KA combo had a huge hit with Upkar (1967), so KA were happy to use MK again. And at that time, Rajesh Khanna was “just another hero”. Kishore Kumar had not yet become his voice. In fact, in this film, even Mukesh sings a happy song for Rajesh Khanna. 🙂

I hope you like the song.

Thanks for the memories, Kaka.

Whatever the world might say about you, remember, when it comes to romance in film,

“tere hi to sar pe mohabbat ka taaj hai”.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 33
——————————————————————————————

30th May – ten years ago. The steady pace of six songs per day is quite natural, and consistent. The six movies that were represented that day are

  • Chaandni Chowk             1954
  • Aas Ka Panchhi               1961
  • Aadhi Raat Ke Baad         1965
  • Zanjeer                          1973
  • Hamshakal                      1974
  • Bhola Bhaalaa                 1978

The first four films on this list above are already fully represented on our blog. The reprisal song for today is from the 1978 film ‘Bhola Bhaala’. This film is directed by Satpal, under the banner of Venkteshewara Pictures, Bombay. The cast of actors is listed as Rajesh Khanna, Rekha, Maushumi Chatterjee, Joginder, Satyen Kappu, Sulochana, Pinchoo Kapoor, V Gopal, Sudhir Thakkar, Jankidas, Rajkumar, Devraj, Master Chiku, Shakti, Ashu, Deven Verma, Jagdeep, Sudhir, Ratnamala, Raj Mehra, and Aruna Irani.

The six songs in this film are all penned by Anand Bakshi. Music direction is by RD Burman. This is the third song of this film to appear on our blog.

On screen, this song is lip synced by Rajesh Khanna, disguised as a sanyaasi. Rekha also appears in this song, as the main dancer attraction. She is also wearing saffron clothes, but she is not lip syncing. Apparently, a certain rich man is making an offering of a costly chhatr (‘छत्र’), as he has been blessed with a son after a very long wait.

This song seems to be a song of deception, to steal that costly offering. I have not seen this film, and so I request other knowledgeable readers to please add more information about this film and this song situation.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 2
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

One of the most iconic songs of Saigal Sb. A song that is a definitive representation of Hindi film music of the 1930s. That incomparable rendition by Saigal Sb under the music direction of RC Boral was recorded live for the film ‘Street Singer’ (1938). Recorded more than eight decades ago, this remains a signature piece for time immemorial. The vision of Saigal Sb, leaving his home, just carrying his harmonium with him, walking with a slow measured pace, and singing this thumri – it is one of the lasting images of Hindi cinema. That version of the thumri from the ‘Street Singer’ can be viewed here – “Baabul Mora, Naihar Chhuto Hi Jaaye“.

Anecdotes around that live recording and shooting tell of a microphone hidden in the harmonium, of the slow pace of walking so as to complete the singing and the visual shot keeping within the range of the camera. Playback singing had already been invented (1935) and was in progressive use in the industry. And yet, this song was recorded live. The performance can only be called – unprecedented, incomparable and peerless. Nothing more fascinates the diehard fans of Saigal Sb, than this one song by him. Many singers have sung this, but the Saigal version remains untouched, unsurpassed.

In the film, this song spans an extended sequence of scenes. And small parts of this song are also rendered by Kanan Devi. There is a sequence where Kanan Devi attempts to sing this song in the theatre. Later, Bhola (KLS) departs from their shared home, upset that Manju (Kanan Devi) is enamored by Amar Babu (Jagdish Sethi), and wants to move in with him. But after just one day away from Bhola, Manju returns home searching for him. And finds that he has left. She makes a phone call to Amar Babu, requesting him to bring his car. They start to drive towards the road that leads to Bhola and Manju’s home village. In the meantime, the scene shifts between Manju searching for Bhola, and Bhola walking away with the harmonium. The song is reprised here three or four times, sometimes just the mukhda, sometimes just the antaraa.

Amar Babu is driving the car with dismay in his heart. A windstorm arrives. There is lot of dust in the air, and visibility is not good. Manju alights from the car, and starts following the path on foot – the path that Bhola would have taken returning to his village. Tired and overcome by storm, Bhola falls down by the roadside. Manju sees someone lying on the road and rushes to him. The tryst happens again. Amar Babu watches them from a distance. And then with a wry smile on his face, he returns to his car, to start the lonely journey back to his home. Bhola and Manju start their foot journey back to their village. Once again the song is heard in the voice of Kanan Devi, as the visual shows the two mates, in a silhouette against a darkening sky. The hearts have met, they are returning home, and the lady’s voice is telling – “Le Babul Ghar Aapno, Main Chali Piya Ke Des. . .”.

Thirty five years later, in 1973, this classical thumri is now included in the film ‘Aavishkaar’, starring Sharmila Tagore and Rajesh Khanna. This time, the music composition is by Kanu Roy, who transformed it into a duet, with the participating voices of Jagjit Singh and Chitra Singh. This time, in the picturization, this is presented as a background song, as the visual action on screen is mostly silent – and yet very expressive.

‘Aavishkaar’ presents a scenario of a brief hiatus in the lives of two people very much in love. In love they are, and they get married, and they start to live together. Maybe, just love is never enough. What love is – it needs to be examined, re examined and re invented often. And then it becomes love, more love and more meaningful. Else, just the drudgery of the consistent proximity, which used to be like heaven to start with, turns into stagnant boredom. Expectations still riding high, the lull now breeds contempt – a contempt that is actually screaming for and seeking a rejuvenated level of understanding and sharing. That is what ‘Aavishkaar’ is about.

The film starts on a day when it is the wedding anniversary of the protagonist couple. Amar (Rajesh Khanna) is aware, but still, broodingly ignores. He works late in office, he goes to see a film with a female co-worker, giving the audience the impression that he is seeking extra marital happiness. On his way back at night, he finally musters enough thought and courage, and buys a bouquet of Rajnigandha flowers. Arriving home, a certain scene transpires before he enters the house, and on an impulse, he places the bouquet in a flower pot next to the door, and enters the house, pretending that he does not remember the anniversary. A long night passes. There are flashbacks, there are arguments, there is even physical violence – highlighting the drift that has occurred in the relationship. Basu Bhattacharya has handled the conflict and the interactions very deftly. In my mind, this is the best handling of the situation of a very loving relationship gone sour. Many other films come to mind – ‘Arth’, ‘Dooriyaan’, ‘Anubhav’, ‘Aandhi’, ‘Grih Pravesh’, ‘Aap Ki Kasam’, the comical ‘Pati, Patni Aur Who’, ‘Abhimaan’ . . . and more. In ‘Aavishkaar’, the director portrays the conflict, the pain, and the reconciliation, at a very psychological level.

So, after a distraught and a tension filled hostile night, mostly sleepless and lot of exchanges and memories, the new day dawns. The rigmarole of the daily routine beckons. Mansi (Sharmila Tagore) gets up early and opens the front door to pick up the milk delivery. And then she sees. . . the bouquet standing in the flower pot. She picks it up. And the voice of Jagjit Singh drifts in from the background. She finds Amar standing behind her. . . and there is an embrace. A lot changed and a lot settled in that night of strife.

The two stanzas play out slowly. The first one as the couple are embracing and then they move back into the home. The second stanza is an external shot, mixing flashback again possibly, as we see the couple on the beach, in a mood of frolic, as the singer croons yet once again to say. . . “Le Babul Ghar Aapno, Main Chali Piya Ke Des. . .”.

The two instances that we are so familiar with, of the use of this song in Hindi films, both seem to have happy conclusion. But that was not the original thought when Wajid Ali Shah wrote and composed this thumri, way back in 1856. The British had played a game of deception with the Nawab of Awadh. In a bloodless coup, Wajid Ali Shah was dethroned and sent to Calcutta, and the British annexed Lucknow and the kingdom of Awadh. The Nawab was completely heartbroken, on leaving his beloved city, and his cultural roots. That is the time when this timeless poem was conceived.

Yes, the interpretations works both ways. There is this indication of a newlywed bride, going to her new matrimonial home. There is sadness on leaving the parent’s home, but there is also an eagerness and joyful elation of being with the one, with whom a new bond of love will be explored. And, there is the gloomy and poignant interpretation. Looking at the sad dilemma that was faced by Wajid Ali Shah – he was sentenced to leave behind his beloved city, his happy pastimes, and the people who made up his life that far. The discussions in literature talk about the passing passage of life into afterlife. That too, is a leaving behind of the home that one thinks to be their own, and then embark on a journey to meet the Maker. This jusxtaposition is captured so beautifully and so splendidly in this brief two verse thumri – “Main Chali Piya Ke Des. . .”.

In the context of this series, I bring on this song today to highlight another dimension of reuse that we see so often in Hindi films – the reuse of traditional poetry and folk music. This particular thumri is so simply a dear favorite of singers, that gathering the number of different renditions by different artists would be a big exercise in itself. Just to give you an idea, this thumri has been sung by the following singers – the list goes all the way from Bade Ghulam Ali Khan to Alisha Chinoy. The names, in no particular order are – Ustad Faiyaz Khan, Gauhar Jaan, Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Siddheswari Devi, Begum Akhtar, Rasoolan Bai, Naina Devi, Kesarbai Kerkar, Ustad Mushtaq Hussain Khan, Malka Jaan, KL Saigal, Jagmohan Sursagar, Kannan Devi, Ustad Khadim Husain Khan, Girija Devi, Shobha Gurtu, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, Pandit Jitendra Abhisheki, Kishori Amonkar, Jagjit Singh and Chitra Singh, Jagjit Singh (solo), Rajan-Sajan Mishra, Alisha Chinoy, Mahendra Chopra. . . and I am sure, many more artists of repute.

If I talk about Hindi films, then besides the two instances already covered in the write up above, this thumri appears in two more films. In 1954, Manna Dey has sung this for the film ‘Mahatama Kabir’ – a really wonderful rendition. Then later in 1964, Lata Mangeshkar has sung this for the Bhojpuri film ‘Naihar Chhutal Jaaye’.
[Ed Note: Dear Arun ji adds two more instances of this song being used in Hindi films, both from early 1930s. This song has been rendered by Durga Khote in the 1931 film ‘Trapped’ aka ‘Farebi Jaal’. Then again in 1934, this thumri appears in the list of songs for the film ‘Naachwaali’ – no information available regarding singer or music director.]

Such reuse that involves traditional poetry and folk songs, is really very simple, because this material is beyond the intellectual property disputes. For that matter, we have seen many such other creations being used in films across the decades. On the devotional side, the poems of Meerabai, Kabir Das, and Soordas are very popular and are used quite freely by the producers. Then we have the adabi poets, once again a traditional treasure that does not have any copyright issues attached. Ghazals of Ghalib are quite popular and have been used in many films across the decades. As I scanned the songs in HFGK I find that the ghazal “Dil e Nadaan Tujhe Hua Kya Hai” appears in 9 films from 1931 to 1980. The ghazal “Nuktacheen Hai Gham e Dil” appears in four films, “Ye Na Thee Hamaari Qismat” appears three times, “Phir Mujhe Deeda e Tar Yaad Aaya” also appears in three films, and so on.

Checking for Meerabai’s bhajans, one finds the popular ones like “Mere To Girdhar Gopal”, “Main To Gidhar Ke Ghar Jaaun”, “Tum Jo Todo Piya” etc., being used in many films. Not a precise search, but my estimate is that Meerabai’s bhajans appear in Hindi films more than 100 times. The search cannot be precise because there are many instances where the traditional bhajans or ghazals have been used without giving credit to the original poet. Additional note – Amir Khusro’s poetry appears in Hindi films no less than 10 times, of which at least 4 are occurrences of “Kaahe Ko Byaahi Bides. . .”.

The more difficult proposition would be to trace the folk songs reuse across Hindi films. With so much variations, and without acknowledgement to the original folk source, it is difficult to make an estimate of folk music reuse in films. But I will surely add that this segment would be more voluminous than the bhajans and ghazals. The song, or variations thereof, of “Jhumka Gira Re. . .” has been used in no less than four films.

Coming to the film ‘Aavishkaar’. The film is produced under the banner of Aarohi Film Makers and is directed by Basu Bhattacharya. The songs of this film are written by Gyandev Agnihotri and Kapil Kumar. And yes, this traditional thumri originally created by Wajid Ali Shah. The cast of actors is listed as Rajesh Khanna, Sharmila Tagore, Deena Gandhi, Denis Klement, Satyendra Kappu, Monika Jasnani, Devendra Khandelwal, Margaret, Mahesh Sharma, and Minna Johar etc.

Interesting side note – this film is the 2nd in the now famous trilogy by Basu Bhattacharya, on the topic of marital discord, the first one being ‘Anubahv’ (1971) and the 3rd being ‘Grih Pravesh’ (1977).

More interesting side notes. As we talk about reuse, I must mention the other interesting reuse in this film. Probably this is the only film where we can hear Sharmila Tagore singing. At one place in the film, the iconic Manna Dey song “Hansne Ki Chaah Ne. . .” is being sung by Sharmila. Then, at another place in the film, the song from ‘Teesri Kasam’ (1966) – “Duniya Banaane Waale, Kya Tere Mann Mein Samaai” is playing on the radio, and we can also hear Sharmila singing along with it.

So much for today. In the next episode, we shall explore another very interesting aspect of re-use of songs.

Song – Baabul Mora, Naihar Chhuto Hi Jaaye  (Aavishkaar) (1973) Singers – Jagjit Singh, Chitra Singh, Lyrics – Traditional, MD – Kanu Roy
Jagjit Singh + Chitra Singh

“Kudrat”(1981) was produced by B S Khanna and directed by Chetan Anand for Trishakti Productions, Bombay.

The movie was a multistarrer but most stars were were past their primes for one reason or the other. So this movie failed to attract me to the movie hall. Even today, I have not watched this movie.

The movie had eight songs in it. Seven of these songs have been covered in the past. The first three songs were covered in early days of the blog viz in 2008 and 2009. The next song was covered in 2013. The penultimate song was covered in 2018.

Here is the details of the songs from the movie that have been covered in the past :-

1 Hamen tumse pyaar kitna Multiple version song 377 12-Dec-08
2 Toone o rangeele kaisa jaadoo kiya 846 4-Mar-09
3 Chhodo sanam kaahe ka gham 1219 4-May-09
4 Dukh sukh ki har ik maala multiple version song 8331 11-Jul-13
5 Saawan nahin bhaadon nahin 14307 27-Apr-18

The eighth and final song from “Kudrat”(1981) is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

The song is picturised as a get together piano song where an actor (Priya Rajwansh) in this case plays a piano and sings simultaneously- an Herculean task, but people watching Hindi movies have come to regard it as quite an easy task, a baayen haath ka khel. 🙂

The picturisation also shows other main actors viz Raj Kumar, Rajesh Khanna etc. The song culminates when Hema Malini, accompanied by Vinod Khanna, makes a grand entry to the get together.

With this song, all the songs of “Kudrat”(1981) get covered and “Kudrat”(1981) joins the list of movis that are YIPPEED in the blog.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–—
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 78 # Singer – Mahendra Kapoor #
—————————————————————————-

Today 9th January is the birth anniversary of Singer Mahendra Kapoor (9 January 1934 – 27 September 2008). Had he been alive today he would have been eighty-five years old.

On today’s occasion here is a song from the 1972 movie ‘Maalik’ sung by Mahendra Kapoor and composed by Kalyanji -Anandji. Lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan.

I have vague memories of watching this film on ‘Doordarshan’ and do not remember it now. In my childhood I had been hearing this song ‘Kanhaiyya Kanhaiyya Tujhe Aana Padega’ on loud speakers during the ‘Janmashtami’ festival. This song was very popular in those years. And after watching this movie ‘Maalik’ on ‘Doordarshan’ around 1983-1985, I came to know it was from this movie. However today on the occasion of birth anniversary of Singer Mahendra Kapoor, I am presenting herewith another Krishna song from the same film.

‘Maalik’ was directed by A Bhim Singh for Bharat Movies, Madras. It was produced by Vasu Menon. It had Sharmila Tagore, Rajesh Khanna, Deven Verma, Sonia Sahni, Bipin Gupta, Shivraj, Umesh Sharma, NS Bedi, Prem Kumar, Kabir Kumar, Baby Pinki and Ashok Kumar (in a special appearance). Story for this movie was written by Balamurugan. Dialogues of this movie were written by Rajinder Krishan (who also wrote the lyrics for all songs in this movie). Editing of this movie was done by A Paul Doraisingam. NS Bedi was also the dialogue director of this movie. This movie was passed by the Censor Board on 26.10.1972.

Rajesh Khanna played a different role in this movie from what was expected from him then and that too when he was on the peak of his career. May be because of that the movie didn’t fare well at the box-office, and may be because people might not have like to watch Rajesh Khanna in this type of role.

Our group of friends then who were the fans of Rajesh Khanna, did not like this movie much when we watched it on ‘Doordarshan’ then in 1983-85. And I remember next day we had discussed this movie and Kaka’s role in it at length. (But that is the matter for another article on Rajesh Khanna series. 🙂

The brief about this movie ‘Maalik-1972’ as given on IMDB is as below;

Rajesh and Savitri are in love, and soon they get married. They soon realize that they have a number of differences, the main one being that while Rajesh is a devout Hindu and worships Lord Krishna, Savitri does not believe in God. This leads to a number of arguments, yet both continue on with their married life. Soon a child is born to them. Unfortunately, the child is born without hands and legs. Both are anguished by this, and decide to placate God by visiting various places of worship all over India, little knowing that the truth lies elsewhere.

This movie has total thirteen songs as listed in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). Out of these thirteen songs, the singer’s name has not been mentioned for one song. Out of the remaining twelve songs we have one solo sung by Kishore Kumar, one solo by Lata Mangeshkar, three solo songs sung by Mahendra Kapoor and seven duets of Mahendra Kapoor with Lata Mangeshkar. That way, including the multiple version songs we have Mahendra Kapoor’s voice in as many as ten songs in this movie.

There was one movie made with the same title as ‘Maalik’ in ‘1958’. Five songs from this 1958 movie are already posted on our blog.

Today ‘Maalik’ of 1972 makes its debut on the blog. Here is this first song from this movie appearing here which is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and chorus.

Let us now listen to the today’s song in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor and chorus.

Radhe Krishna bol mukh se
tero kya laage re mol

Song – Radhe Krishna Bol Mukh Se (Maalik) (1972) Singer – Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics – Rajendra Krishna, MD – Kalyanji Anandji
