Blog Day :

4407 Post No. : 15795

Today (11 August 2020) happens to be Janmashtmi, the day Lord Krishna, the avatar of Lord Vishnu was born in the Dwapar Yug. His earlier avatar was in the Treata Yug and that was as Lord Ram, and the birthday of Lord Ram is called Ramnavami.

Lord Ram was a serious, sombre, idealism personifieed avatar of Lord Vishnu whereas Lord Krishna was a playful, more human like avatar. Playful and non serious he may be, but he meant business when the situation so demanded. And do not fiorget, it is Lord Vishnu, who gave us Bhagwatgeeta ka gyaan.

It should come as no surprise to note that Lord Krishna has been a favourite God of Hindi movies and there have been a good number of Lord Krishn related songs in Hindi movies.

On every Janmashtmi, we feature at least one Lord Krishn related song. The first janmashtmi of the blog saw the occasion getting celebrated with the popular song Shyaam teri bansi pukaare Radha naam (Geet Gaata Chal). Next janmashtmi in 2009 saw an out and out iconic janmashtmi song viz Govinda aal re aalaa zara matki sambhaal brijbaala (Bluffmaster) getting discussed.

If one thinks that we have run out of Lord Krishn related songs for this janmashtmi, now that it is the 13th janmashtmi occasiobn for the blog, one cannot be more wrong.

Here is a fantastic Lord Krishn related song from “Khaandan”(1965). This song is sung by Rafi and chorus. The song begins with a stuti, which sounds like the voice of Ravi to me. Lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan. Music is composed by Ravi, a ceator of iconic songs (my description for him).

The song is picturised on Sunil Dutt, with lots of other devotees engaged in the song and dance celebration, including Nutan, and Omprakash. It is Omprakash, who starts the bhajan singing the Sanskrit stuti.

Incidentally, some places in India celebrate Janmashtmi tomorrrow (12 August 2020), but UP people should know better, because Lord Krishn was born in these parts. :). According to UP calendars, it falls today. May be it falls in night, seeing that Lord Krishna was born at night.

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

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 22
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

I present here a repeat song that is quite different from the string of songs in this series so far. I shall begin by introducing the original song.

The original song is from the 1953 film – ‘Hamdard’. The song has been written by Majrooh Sultanpuri, and the music composition is by Anil Biswas. The original song is in the voice of Manna Dey, and it is already posted on the blog a good eight years ago. That post can be viewed at “Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya”.

The repeat song, this time appearing in the film ‘Tu Nahin Aur Sahi’ from 1960. The song is the same, but for the latter film, it has been re-recorded. The music director of the latter film is Ravi. The second recording is different, both with regards to the composition, as well as the singing voice. The latter song has been recorded in the voice of Rafi Sb, in a tune that is quite different from the original.

In the latter film, only the mukhda of the song is present. The full song is not presented. It would be interesting to know whether the latter version of the song was recorded as a complete song, or only the lines that are actually present in the film.

So the repeat song has been re-recorded, using a different tune, and in a different voice. And it is only used partially. There surely are other instances in Hindi films, where snippets of songs from earlier films have been used partially. This case is interesting, in that it has been formally re-recorded, different voice, different tune. As far as I can check, it appears that this is the only instance of its kind, in the category of repeat songs.

Here is another very interesting anecdote about this song. There is actually another instance in Hindi films, where these lines appear, albeit equally briefly. The film is ‘Teesri Manzil’ from 1966. The scenario is played out as follows.

The location is again the restaurant of the hotel. Shammi Kapoor, or Rocky, (also Anil) has just finished singing the song – “Tumne Mujhe Dekha Ho Kar Meharbaan”. He is on the seventh heaven, considering that Asha Parekh, or Sunita has come to his performance of this song. Little does he know that the letter that was supposed to reach her the previous evening has just been delivered to her in the restaurant. Of course, knowing the truth, Sunita is livid at the deception played by Anil. And Anil, on the seventh heaven, has completed the song and launches into a monologue, telling the audience, how lucky he is having found love. He reaches the table where Sunita is sitting, and she is in tears. Continuing the monologue, Anil reaches out for her hand, and starts to speak these lines –

Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya
Ke Chirag Raah Mein Jal Gaye. . .

The unexpected next instant is a shock, as Sunita pulls back her hand and lands a resounding slap on Anil’s cheek.

So a very interesting set of appearances these lines make – from 1953 to 1960 to 1966.

Remembering Rafi Sb today, on his 40th remembrance day.

This snippet also brings back memories of another great performer – Kumkum, who passed away on 28th July, three days ago. In the closing minutes of this film, she makes a decision and leaves her home, to follow the person she loves, no matter that person is a dishonest conman.

Song – Tera Haath Haath Mein Aa Gaya  (Tu Nahin Aur Sahi) (1960) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – Ravi
[Note: The music director for the original tune in ‘Hamdard’ is Anil Biswas.]

Lyrics

tera haath haath mein aa gaya
ke chiraag raah mein jal gaye
mujhe sehal ho gayin manzilen
wo hawa ke rulh bhi badal gaye

tera haath haath mein aa gaya

तेरा हाथ हाथ में आ गया
के चिराग़ राह में जल गए
मुझे सेहल हो गईं मंज़िलें
वो हवा के रुख भी बादल गए

तेरा हाथ हाथ में आ गया

That leaves us only one movie i.e. ‘Khaandaan-1965’ which is still eligible to be considered for the ‘blog ten-year challenge’.

Though I am regularly browsing the blog, I failed to notice that three songs of this movie ‘Khaandaan-1965’ were yet to be covered. This discovery came as a big surprise for me. I had a ‘bigger’ ‘surprise’ waiting for me, But they will be discussed some other time. For the time being, we will come directly to the today’s song and post.

Hindi songs in Bangla Films – 33
————————————–

Music Directors, Ravi (Ravi Shankar Sharma) and Hemant Kumar (Hemant Mukherjee or Hemant Mukhopadhyay as he is known in Bangla films industry) had an interesting and collaborative partnership in the 1950s. As revealed in his multiple TV interviews, Ravi came to Mumbai in 1950 to become a playback singer. He started as a chorus singer and his first song as a chorus singer was for zara jhoom le jawaani ka zamaana in ‘Naujawaan’ (1951).

Hemant Kumar got his first Hindi film assignment as a music director in Filmistan’s ‘Anand Math’ (1952) in which Ravi got a chance as a chorus singer for the song vande maataram. Hemant Kumar seems to have found Ravi as a knowledgeable and resourceful person having good command over Hindi and Urdu, the latter being the weak points for Hemant Kumar. So, he appointed Ravi as his Music Assistant. What I have gathered from the TV interviews is that Ravi had become Hemant Kumar’s man Friday. Whenever Hemant Kumar found some ‘musical resources gap’, it was Ravi who would step in to fill the gaps – be as a musician, lyricist and singer and apprising him of the nuances of Hindi and Urdu words in lyrics.

One of the best collaborative efforts of Hemant Kumar with Ravi as his Assistant Music Director was in ‘Naagin’ (1954). All the songs of the films were super hit and Hemant Kumar won Filmfare’s Best Music Director’s Award for the film. In one of the film’s songs, Hemant Kumar did not want to use the Been as an instrument but he wanted the sound of the Been. Ravi came forward to compose the Been music on Harmonium which was played on Clavioline (a keyboard music instrument) by Kalyanji to produce Been like sound. The Been music was created on the tune of mera dil ye pukaare aaja and used in mann doley mera tann doley. The songs with Been music became so famous that HMV came out with a gramophone record covering only the Been music for which Ravi was given credit for composing the Been music.

Hemant Kumar was very much inspired by an East Bengal folk song ‘Allah megh de paani de chhaaya de tui’ which was made very popular by S D Burman when he sang this song in Jodhpur Music Festival held sometime in mid-1940s. Hemant Kumar wanted to use this folk tune in one of the songs of ‘Naagin’ (1954). But Ravi did not want the song to sound like folk tune. So, he played a variation of the mukhda tune on his harmonium based on the folk tune which Hemant Kumar liked and incorporated in the song chhod de patang meri chhod de. Only listeners of Hindi film songs with keen ears could have made out that this song was based on a folk song referred to above. At least, I can say for myself that I did not realise this fact until Ravi himself had revealed this in one of his TV interviews, despite the fact that I was aware of allah megh de paani de used in ‘Guide’ (1965) by S D Burman and I also knew that it was partially used in de de pyaar de pyaar de pyaar de re by Bappi Lahiri.

One more instance where Ravi came as a filler for Hemant Kumar’s muscian was on the day of the recording of the song na ye chaand hoga na taare rahenge for ‘Shart’ (1954). The musician playing the Clavioline did not turn up for recording. Since it was the main instrument to be used for prelude and interludes, Hemant Kumar decided to cancel the recording. But Ravi stepped in and offer to play the Clavioline. Thus, the song recording was completed as per schedule with Ravi playing the Clavioline.

During his association with Hemant Kumar, Ravi also stepped in as one-song lyricist in ‘Bandish’ (1955), ‘Arab Ka Saudagar’ (1956), Hamaara Watan’ (1956) and ‘Bandi’ (1957). Ravi as an Assistant Music Director also sang under Hemant Kumar in ‘Daaku Ki Ladki’ (1954), ‘Bahu’ (1955), ‘Lagan’ (1955), ‘Arab Ka Saudagar’ (1956), ‘Laalten’ (1956) and ‘Yahudi Ki Ladki’ (1957).

Ravi worked with Hemant Kumar as Assistant Music Director in 22 films during 1954-57 which included ‘Shart’ (1954), ‘Jaagriti’ (1954), ‘Naagin’ (1954), ‘Bahu’ (1955), ‘Bandish’ (1955), ‘Inspector’ (1956), ‘Ek Hi Raasta’ (1956), ‘Durgesh Nadini’ (1956), ‘Yahudi Ki Ladki’ (1957), ‘Ek Jhalak’ (1957), ‘Champakali’ (1957) etc. During this period, Ravi also got assignments as an independent music director in ‘Vachan’ (1955). ‘Albeli’ (1955), ‘Prabhu Ki Maya’ (1955), ‘Ayodhyapati’ (1956), ‘Ek Saal’ (1957) and ‘Narsi Bhagat’ (1957).

The association of Hemant Kumar and Ravi ended sometime in 1957, when the former advised Ravi to look for independent assignments as a music director. Hemant Kumar he felt that working with him as Assistant Music Director for a long time would restrict his musical career. Though Ravi was not keen to leave his association with Hemant Kumar, he saw logic in his mentor’s advice and parted his fruitful association with him. However, Ravi did not have to struggle to get his independent assignments as three of the production banners – Devendra Goel, S D Narang and Nadiadwala with whom he had worked as Assistant Music Director for Hemant Kumar, engaged him as music director for their films. After the success of his music in ‘Chaudhvin Ka Chaand’ (1960), Ravi never looked back in his musical journey. Before and after parting of their association, as per my counting, Hemant Kumar sang least 22 songs under the music direction of Ravi.

Hemant Kumar and Ravi also collaborated in a Bangla movie, ‘Shesh Parichaya’ (1957), where Ravi was associated as a lyricist for two Hindi songs in the film. These two songs are ‘chal aisi jagah ae dil’ and ‘jhoom jhoom kar gaa le’, both rendered by Lata Mangeshkar. Unfortunately, the film is not available for viewing online on any of the video sharing platforms. I do not have any idea about the story of the film. Whether the film ‘Shesh Parichaya’ (1957) has any connection with a novella of the same title written by Sharatchandra Chattopadhyay is difficult to guess. The only available information on-line is that the film was directed by Sushil Majumdar and Basanta Chaudhury, Sabitri Chatterjee and Chhabi Biswas acted in the film. Hemant Kumar was the music director.

I am presenting first of the two Hindi songs from “Shesh Paricay”, viz. ‘chal aisi jagah le chal’ sung by Lata Mangeshkar. The song reminds me of chali jaa chali jaa chali jaa from ‘Ham Log’ (1951).

Song-Chal aisi jagah ae dil (Shesh Parichay)((Bangla)(1957) Singer-Lata, Ravi, MD-Hemant Kumar

Lyrics

chal aisi jagah ae dil
jahaan zulm-o-sitam na ho
jahaan chain miley tujhko
chal aisi jagah ae dil
jahaan zulm-o-sitam na ho
jahaan chain miley tujhko
chal aisi jagah ae dil

bedard hai zamaana
tera saath kaun dega
tere gham ki daastaan ko…o
koi nahin sunega
bedard hai zamaana
tera saath kaun dega
tere gham ki daastaan ko..o
koi nahin sunega
seene mein daba le tu
iss gham ke fasaane ko
kehna na zamaane ko
chal aisi jagah ae dil

duniya ne aaj tujhse
badlin hai jab nighaahen
tu bhi zara badal de ae
ye zindagi ki raahen
duniya ne aaj tujhse
badlin hain jab nighaahen
tu bhi zara badal de ae
ye zindagi ki raahen
taqdeer bani dushman
jab tere mitaane ko
ghar tera jalaane ko
chal aisi jagah ae dil
jahaan zulm-o-sitam na ho
jahaan chain miley tujhko
chal aisi jagah ae dil

“Kaajal”(1965) was a movie that I knew little about when I was growing up. I watched this movie in 1978 when my went to college and my movie watching spree began with a vengeance. Those days, I only liked “new” movies and songs and scoffed at “old” movies and songs. But I had heard about old movies, so I would go and watch them when no “new” movie was there for me to watch. The old movies tended to run to empty house and so buying tickets for these movies was not a problem. I wondered if a day will come in future when one would be able to watch “new” movies with the same ease, without needing to queue up and black marketeers having a field day. Believe it or not, today we are actually in that situation where one can buy tickets of even brand new movies without needing to form a queue in the movie hall.

I watched “Kaajal”(1965) in a movie hall called Ratan Talkies. I knew that it was an old movie but still I mustered up enough tolerance within me and went to watch the movie. I was a few minutes late and the movie had already started. When I found that the movie had Raj Kumar (tragedy Kumar) and Meena Kumari (tragedy queen), I wondered if I had made a mistake and I would have to spend a misery filled three hours in the hall. But as soon as the songs of the movie began, I as well as others exclaimed-“arre ye gaana is film ka hai !”. Songs kept coming one after another, with the same collective response from the movie watchers.

Seeing that I had become a regular movie watcher only in that year, I had a lot of catching up to do. I was not aware about many of the actors that were there in the movie. Today, when I look back at the starcast of “Kaajal”(1965), I realise that it was full of big name actors. But when I was watching the movie at that time, I could identify only Raj Kumar, Meena Kumari and Dharmendra, aand that was all !

The movie had eleven songs in it. As many as ten songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the songs already covered in the blog:-

I came to know thanks to some whatsapp messages that today (12 june) is the birthday of Padmini (12 june 1932-24 September 2006). When I watched “Kaajal”(1965) in the movie hall. I had no clue about her. I did not even know that the actress seen in a few songs in the movie was Padmini.

On the occasion of Padmini’s birth anniversary, here is the eleventh and final song from “Kaajal”(1965) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as an archtypical get together song in a palatial home where people gather and politely watch a lady singing (while holding a sitar) and another lady dancing. In this song, Meena Kumari lip syncs while Padmini dances. Look at the people watching the performance. During those days, I did not even recognise Durga Khote !

“Kaajal”(1965) was a movie that was worth watching for its songs. Today, I would go to the extent of saying that only the songs of the movie must be watched. The story is too melodramatic for me. 🙂

Many decades later (after I began this blog), I came to know that Padmini had two more sisters and they too were dancing stars like her, and that together they were known as Travancore sisters.

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

With this song, songs of “Kaajal”(1965) are now fully represented in the blog and this movie joins the list of movies that are YIPPEED in the blog.

Blog Day:

As a school going student, I was kept in strict discipline which meant going from home to school and back. No watching of movies. Even talking about movies and reading movie magazines were taboo. That did not prevent me from clandestinely reading movie magazines and books lying around the home that was apparently alright for elders to read.

It was in 1978, when I went to college and was allowed freedom as befitting a college goer. And I misused this freedom with abandon. I started watching movies left and right bunking college, as if making up for the lost time.

It was during this movie watching spree that I watched many old movies during their re runs. It included not only movies like “Sholay”(1975),”Deewaar”(1975), “Mera Gaaon Merra Desh”(1971) etc etc but also movies from earlier decades.

The movie halls where I watched most of these movies had names like Sujata, Sandhya, Vasundhara etc. But not all movie halls had feminine names. There was an old movie hall called Ratan Talkies. Closeby there was another movie hall called Rupashree which reputedly was the first movie hall of Bihar (which was opened way back in 1930s). Then there was Welfare cinema hall. These three cinema halls were closer to my residence than others. The farthest cinema hall was a “properly” named movie hall called Plaza. It was the kind of name that one found in big places like New Delhi. 🙂

It was in one matinee show in 1978 in Ratan Talkies that I watched “Kaajal”(1965). I did not have much clue about the movie. I found the movie boring in the beginning when I saw tragedy queen Meena Kumari and tragedy Kumar Raj Kumar in the movie. But then the songs began to appear one after the other. With every song, the reaction (mine as well as that of others) was, arre, this song is from this movie ! All iconic songs !

Since I had started my movie watching spree just recently, many actors were “new” for me. I watched Raj Kumar for the first time in this movie. Then there were many others whom I did not recognise at that time and regarded them as lesser actors. When I look back at the cast now, I realise that this movie had a galaxy of big names. The fact that it had Padmini, Mumtaz, Mehmood etc in it apart from the tragedy persons was lost on me. Then yesteryear legend Durga Khote was there too. Dharmendra was there whom I thankfully recognised, having seen him in a few movies earlier.

The movie had eleven songs in it. Nine of these songs have been covered in the past. When I look at the writeups of these songs, I realise that the writeups do not do justice to the songs. So I think we need to add some more contents and spice to these writeups. So I request our regulars to contribute their observations on these iconic songs.

Following songs from “Kaajal”(1965) have been covered in the blog so far.

Here is the tenth song from “Kaajal”(1965) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle. Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

This song is picturised as a “bhang” song on Mehmood and Mumtaz. Before I watched this song, I was not even aware that these two were in this movie.

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


Song-Zara si aur pila do bhang (Kaajal)(1965) Singer-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

zaraa si aur pila do bhang
main aaya dekh ke aisa rang
ke dil mera dola aa
O hai ham bhola
zaraa si aur pila do bhang
main aaya dekh ke aisa rang
ke dil mera dola aa
O hai ham bhola aa
meri to akal huyi hai dang
ye kaisa badlaa tera dhang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa
b b b b b drurrrrrr ha

mujhe samajh na tu bairaagi
maine aaj tapasya tyaagi ee
hmm hmm hmm hmm

mujhe samajh na tu bairaagi
maine aaj tapasya tyaagi
tere roop ka jhatka khaa ke
meri soyi jawaani jaagi ee
meri soyi jawaani jaagi
ja hat jaa arey malang
kare kyun beech sabhi ke tang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa
zaraa si aur pila do bhang
main aaya dekh ke aisa rang

O hai ham bhola

(undeciphered words)
Tak dhum tak tak tak tum

Kyun thhaam ke dil ko tehle
Jo chot lagi hai sah le ae
Haay haay
Kyun thhaam ke dil ko tehle
Jo chot lagi hai sah le ae
Us baat pe ab zid kaisi
Jo baat na maani pehle
Jo baat na maani pehle

Kyun jhagde mere sang
Main tujhse haar chukaa hoon jung
Ke dil mera dola
o hai ham bhola aa
meri to akal huyi hai dang
ye kaisa badlaa tera dhang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa

(undeciphered words)

mere dil se nikle haaye
gori kyun nakhre dikhlaaye

(undeciphered words)

mere dil se nikle haaye
gori kyun nakhre dikhlaaye
zaraa hans ke gale se lag jaa
tujhe kunwaara pyaar bulaaye
tujhe kunwaara pyaar bulaaye
tere man pe chadh gaya jang
yoonhi ab kyun chamkaaye rang
ke tu tha bhola

o hai ham bhola aa
zaraa si aur pila do bhang
main aaya dekh ke aisa rang
ke dil mera dola aa
O hai ham bhola

तेरे रूप का झटका खाके
मेरी सोयी जवानी जागी ई

मैं आया देख के ऐसा रंग
के दिल मेरा डोला आ
ओ है हम भोला आ

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 25
—————————————————————————

Today is 1 may 2020, viz the first day of the fifth month of the year 2020.

When I look back on this day ten years ago, I find that three songs were covered that day (1 may 2010). These songs were :-

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Uff ye Jawaani ye adaa Mehmaan-1974 03 of 06 songs posted
Tumhaari mast nazar gar idhar nahin hoti Dil Hi To Hai-1963 All songs covered
Pyaar to ik din honaa thaa Ek Shrimaan Ek Shrimati-1969 05 songs posted

So it means that two movies are eligible for “Blog Ten year challenge” today.

One of these two movies is “Mehmaan”(1974).

This movie had six songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the blog. The movie made its debut ibn the blog this day ten years ago !

Here are the three songs of “Mehmaan”(1974) that have been covered so far:-

Song Posted On
Uff ye Jawaani ye adaa 01.05.2010
Meri chaahat rahegi hameshaa jawaan 26.04.2012
Ram Raheem Krishn Kareem … 25.10.2017

I may have discussed three songs from the movie, but these songs were spaced several years apart. Second song from the movie was discussed in 2012 and the third in 2017.

So, despite covering three songs from the movie, I do not remember anything about this movie. So when I watched the song under discussion today, I had some great and inadvertent fun watching the picturisation. I could see a very young Rekha lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice, but who was the gentleman, jumping up and down. He appeared somewhat familiar ! And then it hit me, Arrey, it was Vishwajeet ! He was well past his prime by 1974, but he was still trying to turn the clock back rather valiantly. 🙂

The song starts as a motor boat song. Then the duo shift to a park, where the song becomes a classic running around the trees song- as I S Johar would have described it. 🙂

Then the duo jump over on a jeep. End of the song finds Rekha alighting from the jeep and walking off in a huff, determined not to go back to the jeep. But she quickly has a change of heart when she finds monkeys ahead. 🙂

Lyrics are by Sahir Ludhianvi. Normally known for penning songs espousing the caause of social justice, communal harmony, women emancipation and other such noble causes, Here he is called upon to pen a rather more mundane kind of a song- viz a romantic song. And the lyrics are quite cute. “Chhoona mat mujhe”- is the warning issued by the lady. “royegi jo chhoone waala koi na mila”- is the response. Then she relents and sets the terms that she is agreeable to this “chhoona” business provided it is carried out gently. 🙂

Quite an interesting and fun song, even if much of the fun is inadvertent. This is a song from nearly five decades ago. I have been watching this song and listening to it for the first time in true tubelight fashion. I got to watch this song only because the lyrics of this song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 24
—————————————————————————

“Anmol Moti”(1969) was produced and directed by S D Narang. The movie had Jeetendra, Babita, Rajendra Nath, Jayant, Aruna Irani, Shabnam, Jagdeep, Jayant, DK Sapru, Veena, Tuntun, Saul George, Gajanan Jagirdar, Jeevan, Hari Shivadasani, Jagdish Raj, Meena T, Prakash Thapa, Niranjan Sharma, Iftekhar, Uma Datt, Kanu Roy, Tiwari, Abhimanyu Sharma, Om Sahani, Baby Meena, Baby Mozal, Baby Neena, Basant, Hansa, Khursheed, Lajpat Mehra, Miss Gillain, Miss Kerian, Moolchand, Moses, Mrs Hacker, Narbada Shankar, Raj Deep, Rajan Kapoor, Ramesh, Ramlal, Razak, Sham, Sudha, Sundeep, Susheela, Uma Khosla etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past. The movie had made its debut ten years ago on this very day with the song Ae jaane chaman tera goraa badan .

That day ten years ago saw only two songs covered in the blog. The other song apart from the “Anmol Moti”(1969) debut song was Akela hoon main hamsafar dhoondhhta hoon from “Jaal”(1969). This movie has since been YIPPEED in the blog.

Only two songs from “Anmol Moti”(1969) have been covered in the blog. So there is choice of as many as four songs today as “Blog Ten Year Challenge” post. As it is, Prakashchandra as well as Avinash Scrapwala both sent songs for this challenge, and they sent different songs ! Prakashchandra sent his contribution earlier, so I am going with the song sent by him as “Blog Ten Year Challenge” post.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and chorus. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

This is one song that I have listened to a lot of time. It is one of those iconic songs that I used to listen to during my formative years, even though I had no clue what movie these songs were from. I have listened to this song many a times, on loudspeakers as well as Radio. It is only now, more than 50 years later, on this day 25 April 2020 that I have come to know that this iconic song is from “Anmol Moti”(1969). I can be that kind of a tubelight. 🙂

The song is picturised as a boat/ river song on Babita, with Jeetendra also making a belated appearance. Many other ladies (who appear like foreigners, perhaps from Soviet Union) are also seen in the picturisation, performing synchronised swimming, underwater swimming etc.

As mentioned earlier, lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra, who pips Avinash Scrapwala to the post for this “Blog Ten Year Challenge” opportunity.
