Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 21
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, yes, this one too.

And I am very sure most of us would not have heard, or even heard of, the third stanza in this song. Ah yes, that is the wonderful bonus we have from the repeat use of this song. I was not even aware of the existence of a third stanza of this song, before my dear friend Ahsaan Bhai (of Hapur) introduced me to this repeat song in the 1978 film ‘Nasbandi’. That was a few months ago. In wayward manner, i.e. without any proper identification etc., this song is available on you tube. And unless one is aware of what one is looking for, one is bound to miss it.

And the third stanza – I wonder where and how IS Johar was able to lay his hands on the extended version of this song. Is the film availabl somewhere? Food, and quite wholesome food at that, for thought. The repeat use is the original recording in the voice of Rafi Sb. And as such, it is not listed in the Geet Kosh, for the film ‘Nasbandi’.

Definitely, the best of the fast paced super foot tappers sung by Rafi Sb. Listening to this, one can but not cease being amazed in wonder at the spectrum of the range that Rafi Sb has rendered over the near four and a half decades of his career as a playback singer in Indian cinema.

The original song, from the film ‘Mr X’ from 1957. The film is sadly not available, not traceable at present. And so one cannot write about the picturization. However, one thing that Ahsaan Bhai has confirmed with certainty that this song is performed on screen by Johnny Walker, in the original.

The repeat song in the film ‘Nasbandi’ is presented, in original, as a background song. Now, ‘Nasbandi’ is  Johar Films production. And knowing the penchant IS Johar has for spoofing and presenting a near gobbledygook farce of the normal situations, one must see this clip with a barrelful of salt, keeping on the side, all the sensible understanding of the real world, or even the reel world. The fun in his films is very much in-your-face farce.

IS Johar was an acknowledged intellectual and man of letters. Only that his capabilities in this arena got directed towards comedy and fun. One can sense that he is making a film for fun, and in that process he is making fun of a lot of established ideas, and even well known people. He went on to produce many films of this calibre.

Another thing that I want to highlight is his penchant for the motor bike. In practically all his films that I have seen, there is one or more scene of motorbike riding, and in some cases, real dare-devilry motorbike riding, be it ‘Johar in Kashmir’ (1966), ‘Johar and Mehmood in Goa’ (1965), or ‘Johar and Mehmood in Hong Kong’ (1971). In this film too, the same gimmickry appears. This song is all about extreme motorbike riding, with display of driving skills underwater, driving on rail tracks, ascending and descending stair cases, besides the other nominal tricks of motorbike riding. One enjoys the song of course. But one also realizes – it is in the film just for the heck of it. 🙂

Ah but, this post is not about IS Johar and his films. It is the recall of this iconic song sung by Rafi Sb, and as mentioned above, the wondrous discovery of a third stanza of this song.

40 years ago, this divine virtuous voice, departed from this world of the mundane. And the world became lesser so with his departure. The artist that he was, and the humane person that was him, only rarely one finds these two attributes of eminence so pleasantly enmeshed together.

Just like water – it will take shape of whatever container one pours into. And it will take up the color of whatever it is mixed with. That is the artist in Rafi Sb. His voice in the background, almost always sounded as the voice of the actor in front. That is what water does – accepts everything, becomes everything.

Such is the same – as with Rafi Sb.

Amen.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Tumko apni jaan bhi pyaari nahin’

‘Mujhe apne desh se jyaada kuchh bhi pyaara nahin’

 ‘Jhooth mat bolo’ …

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

‘Agar iski zindagi chaahte ho to …’

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

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

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

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

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