Hullo Atuldom

“Banarsi Babu” is a 1973 movie which was produced and directed by Shankar Mukherjee. The movie had Dev Anand- Rakhee- Yogita Bali in the lead with Jeevan, I.S. Johar, Manorama, Veena, Bhagwan Dada, Maruti etc in supporting cast.

It was a very simple story of twins getting separated in childhood- one is adopted by a wealthy lady (Raj Rani) and the other remains with the biological mother (Veena) in Banaras. The child with the foster mother grows up to be a wealthy businessman (Sohan) and the other a pickpocket (Mohan) who has Gulabi (Yogita Bali) as an accomplice.

On a trip to Kashmir Sohan meets the beautiful Neela (Rakhee) falls in love and marries her. He has a scheming manager Saxena (Jeevan) who sends him away on some other trip to London and replaces him with his look-a-like from Banaras in Neela’s life so that they can con her of her inheritance. Matters take a twist when Gulabi comes looking for her Mohan and bumps into Sohan.

Another twist is when escaping the clutches of Saxena’s henchmen he walks into his mother Veena’s hospital room and she calls him Mohan. Then when he returns home he finds Neela cold towards him as she has begun suspecting that he is after her wealth. All this leads to a climax where first the two brothers find each other and then they fight Saxena. Finally, two and half hours are up during which time we are also treated to some entertaining songs penned by Rajender Krishan and composed by Kalyanji- Anandji. Kishore Kumar (who else) was the voice for Dev Anand and Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle were the voices for the ladies.

On the sixth anniversary of the stylish actor producer and director Dev Anand let us remember him with a lively song from this movie. The song has Rakhee and Dev Anand as Sohan romping about on the snow-clad mountains and teasing each other. After the song it is revealed that they are in love and on a honeymoon.

A small trivia: 1973 saw Dev Anand in five movies- “Shareef Badmaash” with Hema Malini & Rakhee (already yyiippeed); “Joshila” again Rakhee and Hema Malini (not yet yyiippeed); “Heera Panna” with Rakhee and Zeenat Aman (only 2 songs posted); “Chhupa Rustam” with Hema Malini (not yet yyiippeeeed); and “Banarasi Babu” with Rakhee and Yogita Bali (only 1 song as yet that too posted in 2009). So, we se that Hema and Rakhee were his preferred heroines that year. Just a little food for thought.

Editor’s note-Though Lata and Asha Bhonsle are described as the female playback singers in the movie, the female version of this song does not sound like Lata’s (Lata is mentioned as the singer in HFGK). Perhaps she had sung the record version and the movie version had another voice ? The voice sounds more like Usha Khanna, it hardly sounds like Lata.

Song-Mere peechhe ek ladki (Banarasi Babu)(1973) Singer-Kishore Kumar / Lata (?), Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Kalyanji Anandji

Lyrics

mere peechhe ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki

hey ae ae ae ae
haaye dil ki dushman jaan ki dushman
dil ki dushman jaan ki dushman
yeh bhi na samjhaaye
kyun saaye ki tarah yeh mere peechhe peechhe aaye
main ladka seedha saadha
main ladka seedha saadha
kya jaanoon iska iraada
munh se toh yeh kuchh na boley
aankhon se boley zyaada
mere peechhe ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki

haaye deewaani se pyaar karen toh
arre deewaani se pyaar karen toh
deewaane kehlaayen
baahon mein aa jaaye toh
hum shaayad maan bhi jaayen
hai mausam mast gulaabi
tara ru ru ru ru
hai mausam mast gulaabi
dil kaise ho na sharaabi
pyaar zaraa sa kar len toh hai
iss mein kaun kharaabi

mere peeche ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peechhe ek ladki
ek ladki pagli si
awaara titli si
ghoom rahi hai
jhoom rahi hai
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peeche ek ladki

——————————–
Female version (this happens when Rakhee tries to remind her husband of the good times they had experienced in Kashmir unaware that the one with her is Mohan not Sohan)
——————————–

Deewaane se pyaar karoon toh
Deewaane se pyaar karoon toh
Deewaani kehlaaoon
Baahon mein aa jaaye toh
Main shaayad maan bhi jaaoon
Hai mausam mast gulaabi
La la la la la la
Hai Mausam mast gulaabi
Dil kaise ho na sharaabi
pyaar zaraa sa karloon toh hain
issme kaun kharaabi
mere peeche ek ladka
ek ladka pagla sa
awaara baadal sa
ghoom raha hain
jhoom raha hain
dil de doon isko kaise
mere peeche ek ladka
ek ladka pagla sa
awaara baadal sa
ghoom raha hai
jhoom raha hai
dil de doon isko kaise

Here is a song from Muqaddar Ka Sikandar. It is written by Anjaan and Kalyanji Anandji are the music directors. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor and Lata Mangeshkar.

This movie had great songs. All Eight of them. But a lousy story line (I can see a whole lot of Atulites chuckling right Rajaji?)

Hullo everyone

Here is a typical Kishore Kumar song. Combining with RD Burman he gives us a bhajan, qawwali and Hindustani classical all at one shot. Such a song has entertainment value and Kishore Kumar doesn’t disappoint (has he ever?) And there are very few Bollywood actors who can carry it off with equal gusto.

Here we have our very own Sanjeev Kumar giving a paisa vasool performance.

Today (23 september 2014) is the death anniversary of Rajinder Krishan, a versatile and prolific lyricist of the golden era. He made his debut as a lyricist in late 1940s and he was supposedly past his prime by 1970s, but he continued to pen some superb songs even in 1970s. 1973 was a year when Rajinder Krishan wrote songs in “Banarasi Baabu”, “Jwaar Bhaata”, “Kahaani Kismat Ki” and “Blackmail” ! People loved the songs of these movies, majority of them (including myself) without knowing the details of these songs.

When I woke up early morning and started the computer, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the google doodle on google.co.in contained Kishore Kumar’s sketch in it. So if google can remember 4 august as the birth anniversary of Kishore Kumar, then this blog cannot be left behind, of course.
