First of all, my apologies for my infrequent appearances here. Even calling it a cameo is unfair to a cameo, because, to be honest, it is not even that. It is more like, a “blink and you miss” situation.

Anyway, here I am today, back with a post. The occasion is the Remembrance Day of someone very special to the Hindi film industry, and also to me. He has millions of fans around the world and is easily one of the legends of the industry.

I am talking about Kishore Kumar, of course.

I’ve written about Kishore Kumar many times in the past. And yet, when Avinash ji requested me to write a post for this occasion, I immediately agreed. Such is my love for Kishore Kumar that even if I repeat myself and bore my readers in the process 🙂 , I could not bring myself to say no.  🙂

The problem then was to get the required writing mood back. What they say about writing is very true. If you don’t write for an extended period of time, you gradually lose the ability to do so. That is why many writers practise their writing everyday, by writing at least a minimum number of words.

When I wrote to Avinash ji saying “Mere thoughts gather nahin ho rahe. I have lost the ability to write”, he replied “Aap Kishore Kumar ke gaane suniye aur din bhar sunte rahiye. Thoughts will come, I am sure.” 🙂

So I did listen to a few songs – predictably songs of ‘my’ era. “Khizaan Ke Phool”, “Jeevan Se Bhari Teri Aankhen”, “Teri Duniya Se”, “Hum Bewafa Hargiz Na The”, “O Mere Dil Ke Chain”, “Ye Shaam Mastaani” and a few others.

I think that might have helped a bit, because here I am.

Anyway, coming to Kishore Kumar.

The years just roll by – it is already 32 years since he left us.

He was just 58 at the time – far too young to go.

But like they say, it is not the years in your life that count, it is the life in your years.

And Kishore Kumar had plenty of life in his years.

No one will dispute that Kishore Kumar was the No.1 all-rounder in the industry. There have been a few others who have had multiple skills. Manoj Kumar was actor, writer, director, producer. Mehmood was also quite an all-rounder.

But Kishore was in a league of his own, because in each of his roles, he left a mark. Of course he is best-known as a singer, but even today many remember his acting, especially in comedy roles like in ‘Dilli Ka Thug’, ‘Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi’, ‘Half Ticket’ and many other films.

But there was so much more to Kishore Kumar than just comedy. And probably to prove this point, he produced and directed films like ‘Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein’ (1964) and ‘Door Ka Raahi’ (1971). I was stunned when I saw both these films – they have tremendous depth and philosophy, uncommon for the times.

His versatility was not limited to singing, acting, producing and directing though. Kishore Kumar also composed music, for some of his films.  Like the two films mentioned above, whose songs are quite popular to this day. As are the songs of  ‘Jhumroo’ (1961).

This is why I call Kishore Kumar the Gary Sobers of the Hindi film industry. 🙂 He could take on any role, and make a success of it.

But beyond even his multifarious talents, there was Kishore the person. And even as a person, he is quite an inspiration for me. His attitude towards life is something I can only admire.

Those who worked with Kishore Kumar, especially Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, vouch  for his ability to enliven a recording session with his sense of humour, his cracking a joke or pulling someone’s leg. Some people are like this – never a dull moment with them around.

It is not as if Kishore didn’t have low moments, or tough times. Everyone has these – Kishore was no exception. But he never let this affect his professionalism. He was very clear about himself, his philosophy towards life – and he never allowed others to define it for him.

Like he said “Duniya samajhti hai main paagal hoon….main samajhta hoon duniya paagal hai”.

I think, whatever his conflicts with the world might have been, especially later in his life, he was at peace with himself. And that is most important for a human being. Like he told Lata Mangeshkar in an interview in the fag end of his career “I am quite happy”. He expressed a desire to run away from it all, and go to a place which was calling out to him.

Today, on his Remembrance Day, I feel Kishore Kumar found that place and left us in order to go there.

And left us with SUCH a treasure of songs and memories that we are indebted to him for life.

So thank you, thank you, thank you, Kishore Kumar for what you have given us. Speaking purely for myself, as someone who has been part of my life from my very early years, when I listened repeatedly to songs like “Mere Sapnon Ki Raani” and “Ye Shaam Mastaani” on the radio, your impact on my life cannot be described.

Now onto the song for today.

It is a totally new song for me. In fact I have never even heard of the film. Details, including lyrics of the song, have been sent to me by Avinash ji.

This is what he says :

“Zindagi Jeene Ke Liye-1984’ was directed by K.S. Sethumadhavan for ‘Tirupati Chitra Mandir, Bombay’. It was produced by Hastimal.

It had Rakhi Gulzar, Suresh Oberoi, Vijay Arora, Manmohan Krishan, CS Dubey, Krishan Dhawan, Shobhha Khote, Birbal Raj, Raj Kishore, Rakesh Roshan, Tina Munim, Master Rinku, Shah Chaturvedi, Raghvaiyya, Santosh Kumar, Lata Kashmiri, Dolphin and others. Deepa and Ramu make a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.06.1984. However, the movie was re-certified by Censor on 15.12.1987 with a UA certificate (as mentioned in HFGK).

The movie has total seven songs, including the three-part song being presented today (as per HFGK Vol-VI 1981-1985) composed by Rajesh Roshan. HFGK mentions Rajesh Roshan as the lyricist for this movie and the same is mentioned on the vinyl cover of this movie available on online sources, which I guess is correct. (myswar.co also mentions the same). Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Pankaj Udhas and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs in this movie.”

This film, ‘Zindagi Jeene Ke Liye’ (1984), makes its debut entry on this blog today.

The song itself is amazing. I’d never heard it before, but when I heard it for the first time a few days ago, it touched my heart. It also suits this occasion, as it talks of a person who feels he is ready to move on.

Please do listen to this wonderful song. Quite a gem, it is, especially in Kishore Kumar’s voice. Thanks for the song, Avinash ji.

Films are regarded as director’s medium. He is like a captain of the ship. It is the director’s responsibility to make his film successful – critically as well as financially.

A film director may have directed many successful films but he will generally be known by his one classic cult film. For instance, when we talk about PC Barua, ‘Devdas’ (1935) comes to our mind first though he had directed other successful films like ‘Mukti’ (1937) and ‘Jawaab’ (1942).  In case of Mehboob Khan, it is ‘Mother India’ (1957) though he had directed many successful films in the 1940s. K Asif and ‘Mughal-e-Azam’ (1960), Guru Dutt and ‘Pyaasa’, (1957) and Kamal Amrohi and ‘Pakeezah’ (1972) are inseparable. In the international arena, Raj Kapoor is known more for his film, ‘Aawaara’ (1951) than other equally successful films. This is not an exhaustive list.

But there is one film director who is known by his flop film in the genre of satirical comedy. The film is ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron’ (1983) and the director is Kundan Shah. In an interview held sometime in 2012 on the occasion of the re-release of the film in digitised version, he had said he considered this film as his failed project though it has attained a cult status.

Remembering Kundan Shah today, October 7th on his 2nd Remembrance Day who excelled in projecting the serious social issues in soft comedies through films and TV serials. I became aware of him with his very first film which I had watched on TV much before he became well known by his TV serials.

I found it very difficult to get the information on Kundan Shah’s early life before he ventured into films and TV serials. A book, ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron – Seriously Funny Since 1983’ (2010) written by Jai Ajay Singh was supposed to have some information about his early life. But the book has remained out of stock for some time. However, a preview of some pages of the book was available online which gave me some information about the early life of Kundan Shah.

Born in a Gujarati family, Kundan Shah spent his childhood in Aden (now in Yemen) and did his schooling there until the age of 13 when his family shifted to Mumbai. He completed his schooling and thereafter his graduation in commerce. He worked for a publishing house for about 4 years before enrolling himself in the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) in 1973 for direction. It is at FTII, he found interest in the genre of comedy during the second year of the course.

As a project in FTII, he made a 25-minute diploma film titled ‘Bonga’ (Siren) which the students of direction have to make in the final year. The film was a farcical comedy involving a gang of five people attempting a bank robbery. The cast included FTII students like Satish Shah, Rakesh Bedi, Suresh Oberoi, Om Puri etc. There were no dialogue in the film except each one of the gang of five yelling ‘bonga’. Bhaskar Chandavarkar, an instructor in FTII at that time (who was also a music director) composed the background music. The film was critically acclaimed by his fellow students in FTII. His seniors in FTII like Naseeruddin Shah and Saeed Akhtar Mirza were surprised as to how this serious looking man could have made a graceful comedy film out of the nonsensical ideas.

After completion of his diploma in FTII in 1976, Kundan Shah struggled for a couple of years to find the opening in the film industry. He formed a commune of some of his fellow FTII diploma holders and produce short documentary films. However, in this work, Kundan Shah ran into financial problems. Almost all of his colleagues had already been disillusioned with their career and left for their respective places. Kundan Shah also moved to England with his family and worked there to make enough money to pay off his debt.

Kundan Shah returned to India after about 18 months. He got an attractive offer from the maker of ‘Gandhi’ (1981) to work as Assistant Director for six months at a monthly salary of Rs.10,000/-. The offer was very tempting. He consulted his colleague, Saeed Akhtar Mirza who dissuaded him from accepting the offer as he would mostly be doing the work of crowd controlling during the outdoor shooting. Instead, Saeed Mirza coxed him to write a script and make the film himself. In the meanwhile, Kundan Shah worked as Assistant Director in  Saeed Akhtar Mirza’s ‘Albert Pinto Ko Gussa Kyon Aata Hai’ (1980) and Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s ‘Sazaa-e-Maut (1981). These association also put pressure on him to direct a film as his FTII fellow students, Saeed Mirza and Vidhu Vinod Chopra had already made films. It is at this point of time, Kundan Shah decided to make a feature film which resulted in making his first film ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron’ (1983).

As I came to know from the video clips of interviews of Kundan Shah, Naseeruddin Shah, Ravi Baswani, Sudhir Misra and others, it was a long struggle for completing the film and releasing it. Kundan Shah wrote the story and script based on the experiences of two of his fellow FTII students who after failing to get any assignment from the film industry, decided to open a photo studio and undertake fashion and industrial photography. Their bad experiences in the venture became the main theme of the story coupled with Kundan Shah’s personal experiences in dealing with a rationing office in Mumbai for the release of cement quota for repairs to drainage system in his building where he was the Secretary.

When the script was ready, no producer/financier was willing  to invest in the film based on his script. Some financiers termed the script as idiotic. As a last resort, Kundan Shah approached National Film Development Corporation (NDFC) to take a loan for producing the film himself. The total cost film production was expected to be around Rs. 7 lakhs and NDFC would grant the loan only up to 75% of the cost after their Script Committee approved the script. However, Kundan Shah got a pleasant surprise when NDFC not only approved his script but also offered to produce the film under its banner as they thought that the script was an effective commentary on the situations prevailing in the country. So financial side of the problem got sorted out.

Next was the selection of actors and the crew for the film. With a budget of only Rs.7 lakhs, engaging the established actors even for the main roles was out of question. Kundan Shah relied on his FTII colleagues and the actors/ crews from IPTA/National School of Drama. The actors included Naseeruddin Shah, Ravi Baswani, Satish Shah, Satish Kaushik, Om Puri, Pankaj Kapoor, Bhakti Bharve, Neena Gupta, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Deepak Qazir, Rajesh Puri, Ashok Banthia and Jaspal Sandhu. Some of the actors also worked behind the camera. For instance, Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Deepak Qazir were the Production Controllers. Satish Kaushik was one of the dialogue writers. Renu Saluja was the editor for the film beside the assistant director.

Naseeruddin Shah had revealed in an interview that during the making of the film, he was feeling uneasy with the script as he felt that all he was doing appeared to him to be nonsensical. He had arguments with Kundan Shah on several occasions but at the end it was Kundan Shah whose writ prevailed. Even after the completion of the film, Naseeruddin Shah was pessimistic about the success of the film.

The film was released in a few theatres in Mumbai in and some other cities in August 1983. The film received a lukewarm response from the audience. The film was withdrawn after a week in Mumbai and ran in a few theatres only for morning shows. In Delhi, the film ran for 37 weeks in a single theatre for morning show only. The film was also shown on then newly set up DD Metro Channel on the week-ends for a month or so. Gul Anand, the producer of some off-beat comedy films like ‘Khatta Meetha’ (1978) and ‘Chashme-e-Buddoor’ (1981) after watching the film had said to Kundan Shah that if he had not seen the film and only read the script , he would have thrown it out of his window. This shows how Kundan Shah made an interesting film out of the nonsensical script. The lukewarm response for the film was a setback for Kundan Shah. He did not venture into directing any film for the next 10 years.

After about 30 years, ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron’ (1983) was digitally restored and was re-released in November 2012 in multiplexes in Mumbai and in some major cities by which time, the film had already attained a cult status.

In the meanwhile, television was becoming a mass media with a pan India reach. In 1984, Doordarshan permitted the sponsored TV serials produced outside Doordarshan on its National Channel. Kundan Shah and many other persons associated with film industry took this as an opportunity and started their association with the producers of TV Serials. Kundan Shah made his debut on Television by directing some episodes of ‘Ye Jo Hai Zindagi’ (1984). It ran on Doordarshan with 67 episodes some of which were directed by Manjul Sinha and Raman Kumar. Actors were drawn from FTII and theatres. The serial had a phenomenal run which rediscovered Kundan Shah as a master of directing situational comedy.

With the runaway success of ‘Ye Jo Hai Zindagi’, Kundan Shah became the partner in Iskra Films, a TV serial producing company started by Saeed Akhtar Mirza and Aziz Mirza. ‘Nukkad’ (1986) was its first production.  The other successful TV Serials in which Kundan Shah was associated with were ‘Wagle Ki Duniya’ (1988) and ‘Circus’ (1989).

After a gap of more than 10 years, Kundan Shah decided to make a film on the script he wrote in the genre of romantic comedy. The film’s original title ‘Albela’ had to be changed to ‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Na’ (1994) as this title was already registered by someone with Film Producers Associations like IMPPA. As usual for Kundan Shah, the film was delayed for a variety of reasons. The original lead actors, Amir Khan and Juhi Chawla withdrew from the film due to delay in finding a producer/financier. Shahrukh Khan, who was originally taken for the role which eventually went to Deepak Tijori, was promoted as a lead actor with Suchitra Krishnamoorthy.

After completion, the film remained in the cans for nearly 18 months as no distributor was willing to release the film probably due to the hero turning out to be loser in the end. This was the status of this film despite the fact that by this time, Shahrukh Khan was already on his path to become a super star due to box office successes of his films like ‘Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman’ (1992), ‘Deewana’ (1992), ‘Darr’ (1993) and ‘Baazigar’ (1993). Finally, Shahrukh Khan in partnership with one of his friends from the film industry released the film in February 1994. Though the film was regarded as an average success after the release, over a period of time, the film has earned more than 5 times its cost and it has also attained a cult status for Kundan Shah.

It was another six years after ‘Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa’ (1994) that Kundan Shah took ‘Kya Kehna’(2000) for direction which was Preity Zinta’s debut film. This was Kundan Shah’s first mainstream film which was devoid of any comedy. On the contrary, Kundan Shah tackled a serious issue of pre-marital pregnancy with sensitivity. As usual for Kundan Shah, this film was also delayed in getting released. Once it got released, it was  the pleasant surprise to all concerned with the film that it was a box office hit.

The next in lines of films which Kundan Shah directed were ‘Hum To Mohabbat Karega’ (2000), ‘Dil Hai Tumhara’ (2002) and  ‘Ek Se Badkar Ek’ (2004). All the three films flopped at the box office making him to take a virtual retirement from the mainstream films. He returned to his foray of making films with off-beat themes in ‘Teen Behanen’ (2005), based on a real-life story of three sisters who committed suicide because their father could not afford to pay dowry. The film remained unreleased till date.  His last film was a political satire, ‘P Se PM Tak’ (2015) which was a disaster at the box office.

Kundan Shah died in sleep of heart attack on October 7, 2017 at his residence. One of the emotional tributes on his death was that of Shahrukh Khan whom he compared like his mother. He said ‘I was 25 when I came to Mumbai. I have stayed in Kundan’s house and I have been fed by his family and taken care of by them’. Shahrukh Khan had worked in a few episodes of Kundan Shah’s TV Serials, ‘Wagle Ki Duniya (1988) and as a lead actor in ‘Circus’ (1989). His close friends who had been regular visitors to his office said that Kundan Shah’s office cupboard was full of film scripts in various stages. Sadly, there were no takers for these scripts to turn them into films.

As a tribute to Kundan Shah on the occasion of his 2nd Remembrance Day, I am presenting a song from ‘Kya Kehna’ (2000) which was directed by him. The song is ‘Ae Dil Laaya Hai Bahaar, Apnon Ka Pyaar, Kya Kehna’. The song is rendered by Hariharan and Kavita Krishnamurthy on the words of Majrooh Sultanpuri which was set to music by Rajesh Roshan. The song has two versions – happy and sad, the latter version being also a inspirational song.

Hariharan lip syncs for Anupam Kher, Chandrachud Singh and Mamik Singh while Kavita Krishnamurthy lip syncs for Farida Jalal, Preity Zinta and Nivedita Bhattacharya (in sad version). On the sound track, some lines of the song have been rendered as duet, but in the film, it is for all the actors present in some scenes.

The tune of the song is a straight lift from Oh Carol, I am but a fool, darling I love you, though you treat me cruel, sung by pop singer, song writer and composer, Neil Sedaka in  1957.

Happy Version

Blog Day :

4089 Post No. : 15231

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

When one discusses songs sung by Lata, we mostly discuss all time classics, songs that have stood the test of time, songs that have become iconic etc. And there are hundreds of such songs.

Also, she was very particular about the kind of songs that she would sing. She would look down upon songs with lyrics that she found objectionable. Instead of facing her ire, music directors would often take the easy way out and get these songs sung by some other singer. And the major beneficiary was her own sister Asha Bhonsle. Most cabaret songs sung by shady female characters (often Helen, Bindu etc: ) in the movie went to Asha Bhonsle. On some occasions, some music directors who had the necessary connections with Lata ji (viz Laxmikant Pyarelal) managed to convince her to sing such songs. That is how we found her agreeing to sing a few cabaret songs for Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The “Inteqam”(1969) cabaret song Aa jaane jaan tere liye main aas lagaaye is a song that is normally the preserve of Asha Bhonsle, Lata has done an Asha Bhonsle in this song !

Likewise, when the “disco” craze began, which killed off the golden era of HFM for ever, it is rare to see her singing “disco” songs.

So it comes as a great surprise to everyone how she agreed to sing this “disco” song from “Khuddaar”(1982). This movie was produced by F K Rattonse and Anwar Ali and directed by Ravi Tandon for Yokohoma Productions, Bombay. The movie had Sanjeev Kumar, amitabh Bachchan, , Vinod Mehra, Tanuja, Parveen Babi, Bindiya Goswami, Prem Chopra, Mehmood, A K Hangal, Ramesh Dev, Pinchoo Kapoor, Raveendra Kapoor, Madhu Malini etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it and the songs were mostly of “Chaalu” kind as was the trend in those days. Our own Raja, even to this day, can be successfully trolled by reminding him that the song Angrezi mein kahte hain ki I love you wfrom this movie was the top hit song of Binaca Geetmala that year. 🙂

On the occasion of Lata Mangeshkar’s birthday, here is a “Disco” song from “Khuddaar”(1982).To this day, I have not been able to understand how Lata Mangeshkar agreed to sing this song ! But she sang this song alright. And this song is a party song too, fit to be covered on the occasion of her birthday.

The song is sung by Lata and Kishore Kumar. If Lata agreed to sing such a song, then Majrooh Sultanpuri agreed to pen a song like this ! Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan. He certainly must have been quite a persuasive person, who convinced Majrooh Sultanpuri and Lata to be associated with this song. 🙂

The song is picturised as a party song on Vinod Mehra, Kalpana Aiyyer and many others.

Hullo to all Atulwaale

Majrooh Sultanpuri was an Urdu poet and also a lyricist or song writer for Bollywood movies. He was born in 1919 in Sultanpur Uttar Pradesh as Asrar ul Hassan Khan to a father who was a police officer. His father, though, a police officer, was not too keen on his son receiving English education and Majrooh was therefore sent for traditional ‘Madrasa education’ which led to his obtaining the qualification first of Dars-e-Nizami – a seven-year course which concentrated on religious affairs along with proficiency in Arabic and Persian- and then the certificate of Alim.(Personally, I don’t know what Alim is). He thereafter joined Lucknow’s Takmeel-ut-Tib College of Unani. He was a struggling Hakim when he happened to recite one of his ghazals at a mushaira in Sultanpur. The ghazal was a hit with the audience and Majrooh decided to drop his fledgling medical practice and began writing poetry seriously. Soon he was a ‘regular’ at mushairas and a “shagird” i.e. disciple of the then top name in Urdu Mushairas viz: Jigar Moradabadi.

While Majrooh is popular as a film lyricist and is widely known in that capacity, be it known that he also created one of the best-known verses of Urdu poetry, “Main akela hee chala tha janibe manzil magar, log saath aate gaye aur carvan banta gaya!” (I set off alone towards the destination but people joined in and soon it became a caravan!) Majrooh Saab (I think that is how an elder should be addressed) visited Bombay (now Mumbai) to attend a Mushaira where producer A.R. Kardar was part of the audience. He contacted Majroohsaab through Jigar Moradabadi and offered him a chance to write for movies which Majroohsaab refused as he didn’t think highly of them. But he relented on Jigar Moradabadi’s persuasion. Kardar then took him to Naushadsaab who tested whether Majrooh, gave him a tune and asked him to write something to fit that and Majrooh returned with “Jab Usne Gesu Bikhraye, Badal Aaye Jhoom Ke”; Naushad was impressed and they worked together in Majrooh’s first movie “Shahjehan” in 1946.So that then was Majrooh’s entry into movies. His work lasted well into the next millennium with movies that had songs penned by him releasing as late as 2004 – a forgettable masala movie “Ek se Badkar Ek” had “aankhon hi aankhon mein yeh kya baat ho gayi” which was penned by Majroohsaab. And I must say the song was good inspite of the movie.

A small trivia here: 2011 had a movie called “Soundtrack” which had my favourite Majrooh song of all times “ruk jaana nahin tu kahin har ke” and the makers of this movie were decent enough to give credit to Laxmi-Pyare and Majroohsaab.

In his long innings in Bollywood he had associated with the father S D Burman from “Paying Guest” (or even before that) to “Abhimaan” and with the son R D Burman we had albums like “Caravan” “Yaadon Ki Baraat”“Teesri Manzil” and all the etceteras that anyone cares to add. Majroohsaab also had association with another father -son pair. Can anyone forget “rahe na rahe hum mehka karenge” or “ab kya misaal doon mein tumhare shabab ki” with Roshan’s music? His work with Roshan’s son Rajesh Roshan is nothing less and equally popular. If I am not wrong the association started with “Kunwara Baap” in 1974 and went on with works like “Udhar ka Sindoor’’ “Jay Vijay’’ “Inkaar’’ –remember ’’tu mungda mein gud ki dali’’ was from the pen of Majroohsaab, unbelievable no? the 2001 release “Mujhe meri biwi se bachaao” was the last time Rajesh Roshan got to work with Majroohsaab. Of course, we cannot forget all the other albums the two have associated for in the intervening years – “Doosra Aadmi” “Janta Hawaldaar” “Ek baap chhe bete” etc.

“Doosra Aadmi” was a movie that was produced by Yash Chopra and directed by Ramesh Talwar. This was Ramesh Talwar’s debut as director. It was written by Raju Saigal and Sagar Sarhadi and had a cast of Rakhee, Shashi Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor, Parikshat Sahni, Satyen Kappu, Deven Verma, Gita Siddharth, Sheetal etc.

Atulji has posted the first song from this movie in 2008. He had given a brief of the story in that post. He followed it up with a post that had Deven Verma singing a beautiful song.

Here is the next song from this movie which was requested by someone called Bharati in the comments section to the song “Kya Mausam hai”. It is sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. It is more of a background song played at a house-party and Rakhee and Rishi waltz to the tune in a dimly lit room with Parikshat Sahni looking not-so-approvingly as he is the only person who knows that Rakhee is looking for Shashi Kapoor in Rishi Kapoor.

Today on the occasion of Majrooh saab’s remembrance day and Rajesh Roshan’s 64th birthday a song they gave us in 1977 i.e. 42 years back.


Song-Aao manaayen jashne mohabbat (Doosra Aadmi)(1977) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Rajesh Roshan
Both

Lyrics

Aaa
aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthhaayen jaam ke baad
shaam se pehle kaun ye soche
kya hona hai shaam ke baad
aao manaayen

hamaari tamanna tumhen pyaar karna
hamein aur karna kya
hamein aur karna kya
mohabbat mein ruswa
huye bhi toh kya hai
duniya se darna kya

aage koyi ilzaam nahin hai
chaahat ke ilzaam ke baad
aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthaayen jaam ke baad
aao manaayen

yeh aalam hai jaise
udda jaa raha hoon
tumhein leke baahon mein
tumhein leke baahon mein

tumhaare labon se
hamaare labon tak
nahin koyi raahon mein
kaise koyi
abb dil ko sambhaale
itne haseen paighaam ke baad

aao manaayen jashn-e-mohabbat
jaam uthhaayen jaam ke baad
shaam se pehle kaun ye soche
kya hona hai shaam ke baad
aao manaayen

ye sach hai sabse behtar hai

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 77 # Reena Roy’s Birth Anniversary #
———————————————————————————————————-

In my growing years, in the seventies, Hema Malini was the leading name among the actresses in the Hindi movies and she ruled the ‘screen’ in those years 1971-1980 and extended thereafter till 1986 if we can consider it.

During those years there were many other heroines on the Hindi Movie scene who lit up the screen with their presence and performances.

One of these names is ‘Reena Roy’, whose growth in her career coincided with the growth of people like me (those born in early seventies) in our lives. She made her debut in the 1972 movie ‘Zaroorat’. A year or more later in 1973 came her sizzling dance number ‘ab ke saawan mein jee darey’ in ‘Jaise Ko Taisa’ with actor Jeetendra’.

In 1975 one of her song from ‘Zakhmee’ ‘jalta hai jiya mera bheegi bheegi raaton mein’ with Rakesh Roshan also got some popularity.

Till 1976 she had acted in about twelve movies (as per her ‘filmography’ on ‘wiki’).

In 1976 there were six movies of her released viz. ‘Sangram’, ‘Gumraah’,’Barood’, ‘Naagin’, ‘Kaalicharan’ and ‘Udhar Ka Sindoor’.

With her role in ‘Naagin-1976’ she rose to the top and with the success of ‘Kaalicharan’ her pairing with Shatrughan Sinha became popular and both of them acted in many films thereafter.
She was nominated in the ‘best actress’ category for her role in ‘Naagin-1976’ which she lost to Rakhee in ‘Tapasya’. After ‘Nagin-1976’ she was nominated in the ‘best actress’ category for her role in the ‘1980 movie – Aasha’ which she lost again, this time to Rekha for her role in ‘Khoobsurat’.

In between she was declared winner of the ‘Filmfare’ award in the ‘best supporting actress’ category for her role in ‘Apnaapan -1977’ which she did not accepted citing the reason that the role in ‘Apnaapan’ was not a supporting role but was like a ‘lead role’.

For me, I would say that I liked her performances in all the movies that I have watched of her so far. I remember ‘Naagin-1976’, ‘Badalte Rishtey-1978’, ‘Jaani Dushman-1979’,’Yaari Dushmani-1979’,’Be-reham-1980’, then ‘Naseeb’, ‘Rocky’, ‘Dhanwan’, ‘Pyaasa Saawan’ – all of 1981.

After that as a grown-up boy I watched her in ‘Main Intaqaam Loonga’, ‘Dard Ka Rishta’, ‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ in 1982, and ‘Andhaa Kaanoon’. (In 1982 as many as fourteen of her movies were released (as per wikipedia)).

Then I watched her ‘Naukar Biwi Ka’ in 1983, ‘Raaj Tilak’, ‘Asha Jyoti’, in 1984 (I vaguely remember to have watched her ‘Intehaa-1984’ with Raj Babbar).
I watched ‘Baghaawat’ in 1985-86 and ‘Karmyogi-1978’ on video cassette around 1990 but do not remember it now.

‘Aasha-1980’ I watched on TV sometime around 1990-91 I think and ‘Kaalicharan-1976’ around 1999 on TV.
Well, I still have to watch many of her famous movies like ‘Arpan’, ‘Ghulami’, ‘Gautam Govinda’, ‘Jwaalamukhi’, ‘Vishwanath’ (I think I watched it in parts on some tv channel) and many others.

Today let us watch a song from the 1978 movie ‘Vishwanaath’ performed by Reena Roy on screen. I didn’t get to watch this movie and vaguely remember of watching some of its parts on ‘TV’, as mentioned above, may be some years back. (However, I sincerely wish to watch it now as and when possible.)

So far two songs of this movie have been posted on the blog and one ‘jab jab jo jo hona hai’ with a ‘passionate’ and ‘interesting’ post by our Santosh Ojha ji and other one ‘hawa se halki hoon aaj’ by Atul ji with the contribution coming from Prakash ji.

I would request readers to go through this post ‘jab jab jo jo hona hai’ too to get a ‘feel’ of this wonderful movie of the ‘seventies’.

“Vishwanaath-1978” was directed by Subhash Ghai for ‘Ramayan Chitra’, Bombay’.

It had Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, Premnath, Pran, Rita Bhaduri, Madan Puri, Sulochana, Iftikhar, Jagdish Raj, Randhir, Sapru, Yusuf Khan, Viju Khote, Sudhir, Madhu Chauhan, Keshav Rana, Suresh Desai, and Ashok Khanna.

Parikshit Sahni, Rakesh Pande, Lalita Pawar, Mukri, Bharat Bhushan, Satyen Kappu and Ranjeet make a special appearance in this movie.

This movie had total six songs penned by Vitthalbhai Patel- two songs, M.G. Hashmat – one song, Rajkavi Tulsi – one song and Anjan – two songs.

Music for this movie was composed by Rajesh Roshan.

Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Manna Dey gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 13.01.1978.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and written by Anjaan. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

Let us now enjoy this wonderful racy composition by Rajesh Roshan which Reena Roy performs on screen in a ‘villain’s den’. And going by its songs available on YT I think this movie has more than one song in the ‘villain’s den’ song category. Also, I must admit here that I was not aware of this song, few years back, till this post and I came across it while searching for other songs. I don’t even remember if I have heard it earlier somewhere.

As I listened to it many times for the preparation of this post it grew upon me. The composition is something special, I think. And since the preparation of this post I have listened to it many many times now.

Asha Bhonsle’s singing and the tune set to it by Rajesh Roshan no doubt is magical.

The heroine is performing this song in the villain’s den ‘straight way’ challenging him and its music is very much supporting the ‘revengeful’ feelings of the heroine, of course, supported by Shatrughan Sinha and Pran (in disguise). Reena Roy has performed with full zeal and energy on this song.

Today 7th January 2019 is the sixty-second birth anniversary of actress Reena Roy (born on 07.01.1957). Wishing her here a very happy birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life in future, let us now enjoy this wonderful song composed by Rajesh Roshan and written by Anjaan.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 76# Memories of the Seventies – Composer Rajesh Roshan #
————————————————————————————————–———————-

Welcome all and wishing all a very Happy New Year 2019!!!

May this New Year bring us all peace, prosperity, good health, and growth of our country in all areas which are concerned with the ‘common man’ and which helps to improve the ‘quality of life’ and ‘quality of living’ for the people of this country.

Within few months general elections for the parliament will also be held and people will get a chance to vote for their ‘fate’ and ‘fate’ of the country.

Let ‘positivity’ prevails and let the ‘truth’ triumphs over ‘misleading negativity’ and ‘social evils’ that are still a ‘threat’ for the ‘unity’ and ‘overall development’ of this country.

***

On the beginning of every year I always think that I should share a song which has celebration, a message in it and it should be motivational and/or inspirational too. And the better if it is a group song or having ‘chorus singing’ in it, to give it a sense of ‘collective spirit’ and ‘team spirit’ 🙂

I think the song I am presenting today serves this purpose I am looking for and it also motivates for ‘hard work’ (mehnat) to fulfil the dreams of individual and for the betterment of the society overall.

And the other reason for this article once again is ‘nostalgia’ and ‘songs that brings back memories’ …

It was not suddenly that the song came to my mind. It so happened that one day while I was travelling from my Camp place to work place and just give a look at the Sun which was shining brightly in the morning.

(Normally when I do that, giving a look at the Sun or staring it a while, the first thing coming to my mind is Kapil Dev 🙂 )

But that day when I try to stare at the Sun more, I break into singing these lines … ‘sooraj se aankhen milaa’ … yes there is song which I had heard in my childhood, but another moment I confused it with ‘oonchi oonchi baaton se kisi ka pet bharta nahin’, but corrected myself that that the two were different songs.

Somewhere the tune of both of these songs appear to be connected because both songs are composed by the same music director Rajesh Roshan.
However, I had forgotten the name of the movie of this song ‘sooraj se aankhen milaa’.

So, I checked about the song and also checked on the blog if it was already covered.
Luckily it was not and thus this opportunity for me to present it here on the blog.

This song is from the 1978 movie ‘Muqqaddar’!!!

Earlier I had planned to send this article during the festival of Diwali, however I could not send it then …

***
When I was still finishing this article, I got to listen the last episode of ‘2018’ of our Primer Minister’s ‘Man Ki Baat’ and also became aware of the recent happenings of the All India DGP/IGP Conference and the awards for ‘National Unity’. Then the PM also highlighted about the many achievements in Sports by India and I when he narrated about a twenty-year-old cyclist and the feat she achieved I real felt very proud about it and was stunned to know that she cycled almost 300 kms every day to complete world tour in 159 days (and to become the ‘first Asian’ to do so) …

At the same time, I was very sad to read a news about a ‘fact check’ for PM’s waiving a train – whether he was ‘waiving an empty train’, which was on its first journey from the newly inaugurated of ‘Bogibeel Bridge’.

This news proves how low we have fallen down in our ‘socio-political’ ‘ethics and morality’. And I am not taking side of any parties involved in this. Even this thought of raising doubt at such an event at this level is very disappointing and it is a sad comment on our day to day affairs where other serious issues are being mocked by peoples having their ‘own selfish motives’.

Let us wish that ‘false propaganda’ and ‘false allegations’ not take over the real concerning issues of our country and let people use the social media with maturity.

Well ‘neki aur badi ki ladaayi jabse duniya bani hai tabse se chali aa rahi hain, agar buraayi na ho to koi achchaayi ko na poochhe, oonchaai ko samajhne ke liye hamehsa nichhayi ko samajhna chaahiye’

And between this ‘neki and badi’ is our Police force who safeguards us and safeguards our Nation in turn from the various ‘crimes’ in our society … I salute to them all and hope they keep up the good work rising above ‘caste, creed, religion, and beliefs’, in the interest of ‘National Unity’ forever …

Our today’s movie – ‘Muqaddar-1978’ is ‘DEDICATED TO, THE TWENTY-FOUR-HOUR SOLDIERS! THE UNSUNG HEROES! THE POLICE!!

And the dialogues mentioned above are not mine … Abdul Bhai (Yunus Parvez) is saying this to Inspector Vijay Saxena (Sanjeev Kumar) in our today’s movie …

Abdul Bhai runs a ‘road side dhaba’ and Inspector Vijay is his daily customer, and when Abdul Bhai suggests Vijay that he should get married so that he doesn’t have to worry about his food …

‘meri shaadi to us din ho gayi thhi jis din main police mein bharti huaa thha’
‘Chori dakaiti murder ye sab ek wafaadaar biwi ki tarah hamesha mere saath lage rehte hai…
‘Aisaa lagta hai Abdul Bhai is duniya se achchhe aadmi uthh gaye hain’

(Sanjeev Kumar at his best and the dialogues of this movie also, I think, very nice, I thought it was Kader Khan, but no, they are by Dr. Balkrishna Mauj)

Meanwhile as Inspector is taking his dinner a ‘bhikhari budhhiya’ comes and ask for ‘kuchh khilaa do’, Vijay asks Abdul Bhai’s assistant to give her food and he will pay for it …
‘main gareeb ki madad karne ke khilaaf nahin hoon Vijay Bhai, lekin kisika haath paaon salaamat ho to use bheekh dena use kaamchor banaana hai’ … (Abdul Bhai’s sincere thoughts …)

‘Abdul Bhai aadmi ka sabse badaa dushman uska pet hai, agar wo bhara rahe to thhik hai, agar khali ho jaaye to dimaag se jhagdaa karta, aur phir kuchh karta hai jise ham pasand nahin karte’ (Inspector Vijay’s statement on reality (fact check? 😊 )

As the Bhikhari Buddhiya is crossing the road a car hits her and run away … Inspector Vijay follows the car, and as usual taking ‘Kaanoon’ in his hands ‘beats the ‘badmaash(s)’ … but then he has to face his senior – played by Jairaj – and his ‘quintessential’ questions (which are valid even today?)

‘jis buddhiya ki khaatir tumne ye sab kuchh kiya hai wo ab bhi maje se bheekh maang rahi hai, aur jinhe jail mein hona chaahiye thha wo asptaal mein pade hain’
‘Police force ko tumne apne haathon ki taaqat aajmaane ka jariyaa samjha hai’(Jairaj)

Sir un logon ne mujhe rishwat dene ki koshish ki hai, samajhte thhe Police ko kharida ja saktaa hai, is tauheen se mera khoon khaul utthaa’

Tumne unhe wahin sazaa dene ki koshish …, Ye dekho aaj ke akhbaar, ‘police maarpit ke liye hai ya rokne ke liye’, Governer, Mayor na jaane kitne phone aa chuke hain,
‘wo sab chaahte hai ke tumhaare khilaaf action liyaa jaaye’

Lekin Sir mujhe unse koi jaati dushmani nahin thhi

Jaati dushmani mujhe bhi tumse nahin hai …

Main tumhe dhaaravi ke ilaake mein transfer karta hoon, Jahaan kuchh sakht kisam ke mujrim active hai … tumhe apni taaqat aazmaane ka poora poora mauqa milega’ Ya to tumhaari sakhti se sudhar jaayenge, ya to wo log tumhe apne aap par kaabu rakhna sikha denge

So, our Inspector is now in Dharavi, and he already has a sincere and dedicated assistant there – Patil (Bharat Kapoor) … who eventually sacrifices his life since he has been asked that ‘is mujrim pe goli mat chalana’ … but mujrim fires on him …

In Dharavi we have Parishit Sahni as a ‘labour leader’ working in a ‘kapada mill’ of Amjad Khan who is also interested in ‘smuggling’ and to become the ‘wealthiest smuggler’ …
Amjad Khan has a sister – played by Rekha – who is interested in social work and has a soft corner towards labors in the ‘basti’ and Ramu Dada is there in the form of Shashi Kapoor who is a ‘spoiled’ younger brother of Parishit Sahni.
Vidya Sinha plays wife of Parishit Sahni, Shashi’s Bhabhi and Rekha’s friend. Paintal is Shashi’s lieutenant and accompanies him whenever he is driving truck and enjoying ‘mujaras’ after the day’s hard work …

Sanjeev Kumar after reaching Dharavi destroys many ‘daaru and matke ka addaas’ and declares to the goons …
“Aaj se jurm ki wo tehniyaa kat gayin hain, jinpe baithhke tum manmaani kiya karte thhe”

Ramu Dada is still not co-operating Inspector Vijay until he realises the real game of the Smugglers …
Vijay is hopeful of rehabilitating Ramu Dada and reform him to the ‘regular stream’ of ‘good people’ …

But how does it happen finally is after the today’s song and I would like the readers interest intact to watch this movie so not going in further details of this movie here … 🙂

Since the beginning of the movie many are waiting for ‘Dushehra’ festival, like Amjad Khan declares bonus to workers as he wants them to work on ‘Dushehre ki Chhutti’ and he can in hide of it arrange ‘smugglers meet’ so that no one doubts …

***
A beggar (Chandu) – deaf and dumb – always asking for money from Amar Babu (Parikshit Sahni), on his advice has given up begging and from the money given by Amar Babu is now making pictures of ‘Ganesh, Sai Baba’, and ‘Shri Ram’ made by Rangoli on the road side …

***

Peoples are celebrating ‘Dushehra’ now and that is where the today’s song happens …

‘The evil -Raavana’s effigy is set with its ten faces of ‘evils’ and Parikshit Sahni, Rekha, Vidya Sinha with the labors in the basti starts celebrating with this song and Shashi Kapoor joins in between ( coming back from his tour to Goa) , and at the end of the celebrations as the Ravana’s effigy is set to fire by the arrows of Parikshit and Shashi Kapoor, enters our Inspector Vijay Saxena – Sanjeev Kumar – for checking of the ‘truck’ driven by Shashi from Goa with smuggled items 😊

“Kaala Patthar”(1979) was directed by Yash Chopra for Yashraj Films Bombay.

This movie was a multi starrer movie and it had Shashi Kapoor, Rakhi, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, Neetu Singh, Parveen Babi, Prem Chopra, Parikshat Sahni, Romesh Sharma, (special apopearance), Poonam Dhillon (special appearance), Manmohan Krishan, Madan Puri, Ifthikar, Satyen Kappu, Yunus Parwez, Geeta Sidharth, Gautam Sareen, Sharat Saxena, MacMohan, Mahaan, Sudhir Dalwai, Sudha Chopra, Harish, Mohan Sherry, Vikas Anand, Jagdeesh Raj, Suresh Oberoi, Prem Sagar, Pardesi, Nazir Kashmiri, Ashok Rajdan etc in it.

The movie was released with great fanfare and it was expected to be a blockbuster. But the movie received lukewarm response from the movie goers, much to the surprise of experts. Subsequently it was concluded that Indian audience do not patronise movies that depict disasters. They are into escapist stuff rather than into tales based on real life disaster. “Kaala Patthar”(1979) was inspired from the Chasnala mine disaster that had taken place on 27 december 1975.

Chasnala mine was located adjacent to an abandoned mine (separated by a wall of coal) that tended to get filled with rain water. A panel of experts had recommended that water accumulation in that abandoned mine was required to be avoided and secondly the barrier of coal separating this abandoned mine from adjacent locations was to be left untouched.

The recommendations were disregarded. Permission was sought and obtained to mine coal from the barrier.

As coal from this barrier was being mined, the coal wall separating this mine from the abandoned water filled mine caved in and water flooded the Chasnala mine, killing 372 miners who were working inside the mine.

This incident was the biggest industrial tragedy of India till that time and subsequently it was overtaken by Bhopal gas tragedy on 2 and 3 december 1984.

Coming to the movie, the movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the past. Here are their details:-

The sixth and final song from the movie is sung by Lata and chorus. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The song is picturised as a wedding ritual song where Neetu Singh lip syncs the song. The picturisation shows Poonam Dhillon playing the bride and Romesh Sharma the groom while almost the entire starcast seems to be attending the wedding function.

This song has gone on to become one of several must sung songs in Indian weddings.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala long long ago in 2013.

With this song, all the songs of “Kaala Patthar”(1979)have been covered and the movie joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Song-Meri dooron se aayi baaraat (Kaala Patthar)(1979) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Rajesh Roshan
chorus

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

meri dooron se aayi baaraat
maiya main to paauni
meri dooron se aayi baaraat
maiya main to paauni

balma chhail chhabeela
mann ko mohe
joda rang rangeela
tan pe sohe
balma chhail chhabeela
mann ko mohe
main to waari jaaun
balihaari jaaun
pada paaon yeh kiska aangan mein
phool khile phool se mere tan mann mein
chhoota mayke ki galiyon kaa saath
maiya main to paauni
meri dooron se aayi baaraat
maiya main to paauni

le gaye dil ko loot ke tere bol raseele ae
ghaayal kar gaye haay
ghaayal kar gaye jaan ko tere nain kateele ae
le gaye dil ko loot ke tere bol raseele
main toh waari jaaun
balihaari jaaun
jab mukhda dekhoon darpan mein
teri soorat ubhre nainan mein
bhali laage naa naihar ki baat
maiya main to paauni
meri dooron se aayi baaraat
maiya main to paauni

waar diya maine tujh par
dil waar diya
haar diya maine sab kuchh
are haar diya
maar diya toone julmi
haay maar diya
main to waari jaaun balihaari jaaun
teraa naam base meri dhadkan mein
teraa roop hanse mere sapnan mein
liya saajan ne haathon mein haath
maiya main to ho paauni
meri dooron se aayi baaraat
maiya main to paauni
meri dooron se aayi baaraat
maiya main to paauni

Blog Day : 3781 Post No. : 14761

I in this blog often talk about “natural” landmarks and “artificial” landmarks for the blog. “Natutral” landmaks for the blog are those that are intuitive, viz. century of songs in the blog, and later century of songs in the blog for an artist, a contributor etc.

Later, when we began to keep track of blog related statistics, we became aware when a duo of singers completed their century of duet songs, or the blog itself completed a century (or its multiple) of days.

Many of these “artificial” (more accurately “derived” or “secondary”) landmarks went unnoticed in the early days of the blog. For instance, we completed several hundred days and also thousand days in the blog but we remain blissfully unaware. In fact, the level of blissful unawareness was such that we did not even noticed it when the blog completed one year of its existence on 19 july 2009. 🙂

We have come a long way since.

While many of these landmarks events have to be created by effort, there are some landmarks that happen on their own. Time related landmarks, viz hundreds of days or thousands of days get achieved with time.

Likewise, number of visitors in the blog also happen with time, though that is dependent on factors like ability of the blog to attract visitors.

This blog had a humble beginning on 19 july 2008. During its early days, it attracted less than 100 visitors daily. There were only 406 visitors for the blog during july 2008, the month when this blog started.

I regarded it as a “landmark” occasion when the blog clocked more than one hundred visits for the first time. It was on 16 august 2008, the day of Rakhi festival, when I covered the iconic Rakhi song Bhaiyya mere raakhi ke bandhan ko nibhaana .

The blog averaged 31 visitors a day in july 2008 and 72 visitors a day in august 2008 before breaking into the three figure region with 276 visitors per day during september 2008. 23 january 2009 was the first day when this blog received more than one thousand visitors in a day. 1145 visitors arrived on the blog on that day. The blog reached four figure a day mark for the first time during february 2009 with 1069 visitors daily. It was in june 2011 that the 2000 mark was breached for the first time. An average of 2226 visitors visited daily during this month. It took only two more months to reach the 3000 visitors a day mark. August 2011 saw 3109 visitors daily in the blog. The next peak arrived in october 2011. It was not 4000 mark or 5000 mark or even 6000 mark, rather an average of 7224 visiors per day that was achieved in this month ! On one particular day, viz 19 october 2011, as many as 10630 visitors arrived at the site !

It was too good to last though. By now we have settled at an average of over 3000 visitors daily.

In the process, the blog recorded its first one million visits on 25 october 2010, after 829 days. The subsequent million visits have come rather more quickly, as can be expected. The third millionth mark was reached the fastest- in just 152 days. Now a days, it is taking around 300 odd days (nearly ten months ) to reach one million visitos mark.

The blog clocked 10 million visits on 14 january 2018 at around 22:30 IST. The 11th million visitor was clocked on 22 november 2018 at around the same time.

Here is the summary of the eleven million visitors in the blog so far:-

Number of Visitors Date when achieved Blog day days taken for the million visits
1 million 25-Oct-10 829 days 829
2 millions 07-Nov-11 1207 days 378
3 millions 30-Apr-12 1359 days 152
4 millions 10-Dec-12 1606 days 247
5 millions 29-Oct-13 1929 days 323
6 millions 12-Oct-14 2277 days 348
7 millions 04-Jul-15 2542 days 265
8 millions 20-Apr-16 2833 days 291
9 millions 24-Feb-17 3144 days 311
10 millions 14-Jan-18 3466 days 332
11 millions 22-Nov-18 3779 days 313

I was wondering what song to discuss on the occasion. Finally I zeroed in on a joyous song from “Kaala Pathhar”(1979). This song is sung by Rafi, Lata, S K Mahan, Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The picturisation shows almost the entire star cast (this was a multi starrer movie !) – viz Amitabh Bachchan, Shashi Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha, Neetu Singh, Parveen Babi etc.

The video version of this song from “Kaala Patthar”(1979) is nearly six minutes long. But the audio version is even longer (nearly eight minutes long). I have provided both version of the some here.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all for their continued support and encouragement. It goes without saying that it was the support and encouragement of music lovers that helped the blog achieve this impressive number of visits from music lovers. Here is hoping that this musical bandwagon will continue on its merry ways with many more landmarks to achieve enroute.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Disclaimer: Thoughts presented in this song are not the thoughts of the author of this post. It is just a tool in the hands of the filmmaker to take the story of the film forward and explain why the central character professes ‘bachelorhood’. Readers are requested to enjoy the song

“Man Pasand” (1980 – censored on 26-6-1980 and released on 11-7-1980) was among the first few movies whose music cassette was purchased by my father along with “Yaarana” when they hit the market. And since then I am a huge fan of their songs. Know almost all of them by heart.

This was a movie produced by Amit Khanna and directed by Basu Chatterji. Rajesh Roshan was the music director and Amit Khanna himself wrote the lyrics. The movie itself was inspired by the famous stage play by George Bernad Shaw – ‘Pygmalion’ (first published in 1913), and also on the hugely popular iconic film ‘My Fair Lady’ (1964 – Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn). The movie stars Dev Anand, Tina Munim, Girish Karnad, Simple Kapadia, Leela Mishra and Mehmood.

The movie has Dev Anand and Girish Karnad playing best friends, bachelors and musicologists. They encounter a loud- and foul-mouthed vendor of ‘datun’ (neem branches} in the late-night local trains of Mumbai. Then and there Dev (Pratap) throws a challenge that he can transform the unpolished girl into a graceful and talented singer and Karnad (Kashinath) picks up the bet and agrees to marry the girl if Pratap is successful.

Today’s song happens when Kamli (Tina Munim) walks into the flat of Pratap, to be trained as a singer. That is her only aim and she doesn’t know that the two friends have other plans. Prior to the song Pratap tries to explain to Kashi that no one knows what their “marzi” is, whether it is a man or a woman. But once people get married they start trying to make the spouses dance to their “marzi”. That is the gist of the song.

Let us enjoy this lively Kishore Kumar number today on Dev Anand’s birth anniversary. He would have been 95. Dev Anand who was an entertainer from 1946 to 2011 almost 65 years. Dev Anand who was an actor, producer director. A heart throb of the audiences who loved his smile (crooked teeth notwithstanding) sparkling eyes, scarfs, caps and mufflers and all the things that made up DEV ANAND.

Song – Manmaani Se Hargiz Na Daro (Man Pasand) (1980) Singer – Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Amit Khanna, MD – Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

hmmm
man maani se hargiz na daro,
kabhi shaadi na karo
man maani se hargiz na daro,
kabhi shaadi na karo

marzi hai
arre aaj kahin
baahar khaana khaayen
wo kahengi
nahin sahab theek aath baje
ghar wapas aa jaayen

kitaab liye haath me in
aap chain se baithe hain
memsaab poochengi
kyunji hamse roothe hai

kabhi kisi bhi naari se kar lo
do baatein
wo kahen inhi se hoti hai kya
chhup ke mulaqaaten
aji tauba bewakoofi ki hai shaadi inteha
har aurat apna soche
auron ki nahi parvaah
kyon theek nahin kaha maine
jo ji mein aaye wo karo
kabhi shaadi na karo
man maani se hargiz na daro
kabhi shaadi na karo

zara sochiye
aaram se aap ye
jeewan jee rahe hain
pasand ka kha rahe
pasand ka pi rahe hain
achcha bhala ghar hai aapka
lekin kya karen
aap se juda hai shauk
begum sahab ka
aate hi kahen suniye ji
har cheez ko badlo
pehle parde phir sofa
phir apna huliya badlo
aji maana tanhaai se
kabhi dil ghabraayega
jeewan saathi ki zaroorat
mehsoos karaayega
ha ha
lekin is ghabaraahat me jo shadi kar baithe
wo umr bhar pachhataayega
jeete ji arey bhai na maro
kabhi shadi na karo
man maani se hargiz na daro
kabhi shaadi
ho kabhi shaadi,
haan kabhi shaadi
na baaba na

हम्ममम
मन मानी से हरगिज़ न डरो
कभी शादी ना करो
मन मानी से हरगिज़ न डरो
कभी शादी ना करो

मर्ज़ी है
अरे आज कहीं
बाहर खाना खाएं
वो कहेंगी
नहीं साहब ठीक आठ बजे
घर वापस आ जाएँ

किताब लिए हाथ में
आप चैन से बैठे हैं
मेम साहिब पूछेंगी
क्यों जो हमसे रूठे हैं

कभी किसी भी नारी से कर लो
दो बातें
वो कहें इन्हीं से होती हैं क्या
छुप के मुलाक़ातें
अजी तौबा बेवक़ूफ़ी की हैं शादी इंतेहा
हर औरत अपना सोचे
औरों की नहीं परवाह
क्यों ठीक नहीं कहा मैंने
जो जी में आए वो करो
मन मानी से हरगिज़ न डरो
कभी शादी ना करो

ज़रा सोचिए
आराम से आप ये
जीवन जी रहे हैं
पसंद का खा रहे हैं
पसंद का पी रहे
अच्छा भला घर है आपका
लेकिन क्या करें
आप से जुदा है शौक
बेगम साहब का
आते ही कहें सुनिए जी
हर चीज़ को बदलो
पहले पर्दे फिर सोफा
फिर अपना हुलिया बदलो
अजी माना तन्हाइ से
कभी दिल घबराएगा
जीवन साथी की ज़रूरत
महसूस कराएगा
हा हा
लेकिन इस घबराहट में जो शादी कर बैठे
वो उमर भर पछताएगा
जीते जी अरे भाई न मरो
कभी शादी
हो कभी शादी
हाँ कभी शादी
ना बाबा ना
