Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post was liked by my mother at the time when it was a regular on the radio waves. Specially the lines about aate mein mitti, chaawal mein kankar behisaab hai. I suppose those were the times when people had to rely on groceries from ration-shops (kids of the new millennium will not know what the fuss is all about). I remember people used to stand in queues to buy common things like soaps, oils, and other essentials. Aah! Those were different times and a different way of living.

The song with this post also reminds me of the discussion we had on the blog when the song Sun-Saahiba-Sun-Pyaar-Ki-Dhun/from ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’ (1986) was posted; about how Raj Kapoor used some of Hasrat Jaipuri’s lyrics in some of the movies he acted in post 1970. The sources that I referred to before writing this post gives credit to both Ravindra Jain and Hasrat Jaipuri for this song. We have knowledgeable followers of the blog who will enlighten us further on this.

A thought crossed my mind as I sat through the video of this song – if we see Rishi Kapoor on-screen these days it feels like we are seeing Raj Kapoor. The thought got confirmed recently after I saw ‘102 Not Out’ (2018) where Rishi plays a 75-year-old adorable, easily-irritable old man. I had to see the movie – how could I not see an Amitabh Bachchan – Rishi Kapoor movie :). Nice movie should be seen at least once.

With this post we remember the original showman of Bollywood – Raj Kapoor- on his 30th death anniversary. I remember reading about his demise in the newspaper on 3rd or 4th June – there were no instant messaging systems then and getting news about happenings in Mumbai, in local newspapers in Tamil Nadu (I had just begun my married life in a small town of TN that day) was generally a day or two late – different times and a different way of living.

Raj Kapoor had been conferred the Dadasaheb Phalke award that year. I remember seeing the event live on Doordarshan when he was assisted on to the stage. He collapsed at the event and was rushed to AIIMS New Delhi where he passed away almost a month later due to complications arising from his asthma. But his legacy lives in the form of his work as an actor, producer and director. His movies had great music and songs with meaningful lyrics. Whether it was “Sajan Re Jhooth Mat Bolo Khuda Ke Paas Jaana Hai” or “Ik Din Bik Jaayega Maati Ke Mol” – his songs conveyed truths of life. He spoke of the life of the common man in ‘Dil Ka Haal Suney Dilwaala‘  and of eternal love in “Main Na Rahoongi Tum Na Rahoge Phir Bhi Rahengi Nishaaniyan“. His songs had a worldwide appeal; it is said that his “Awaara Hoon” is remembered even today in Russia. What more do I say about this legend, it will be “chota munh aur badi baat”.

Let us get on to the song of the day. It is from the 1975 Naresh Kumar produced and directed ‘Do Jaasoos’. Raj Kapoor along with Rajendra Kumar played detectives out to trace a millionaire’s daughter and, in the process, catch a gang of smugglers led by Prem Chopra. Singer Shailendra Singh made his acting debut in this movie. Hasrat Jaipuri and Ravindra Jain are credited as lyricists and Jain was also the music director. Today’s song is in the voice of Mukesh and Rafi. Raj Kapoor considered Mukesh his singing voiceand Rafi was the chosen voice for Rajendra Kumar on a majority of occasions. The song is a take on the state of the nation at that point of time, but I think it is still relevant.

Remembering Raj Kapoortoday on his 30th anniversary of passing away.

[Ed Note: As per Geet Kosh, Hasrat Jaipuri and Ravindra Jain are jointly credited as lyricist for this song.]

Lyrics

do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai
kaun hai sacha
kaun hai jhoota
har chehere pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai

pyaas lagey to doodh piyo,
doodh mein paani milta hai
mandir mein bhi aaj diya
naqli ghee ka jalta hai
na asli mithaai hai
na asli malaai hai
maava hai sinhgaade ka,
kya zaalim halwaai hai
aate mein mitti chaawal mein kankar behisaab hai
kaun hai sachcha
kaun hai jhootha
har chehre pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai

zehar dawaa mein shaamil hai
zehar dawaa se behtar hai
zehar bhi naqli milta hai
marna bhi ab doobhar hai
desh ke sachche dushman hain
yeh jo milaawat karte hain
in ki badaulat kitne log
maut se pehle marte hain
aise logon ko pakadaana
sabse bada sawaab hai
kaun hai sacha,
kaun hai sachcha
kaun hai jhootha
har chehre pe naqaab hai
zara socho
zara samajho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho socho
zara samajho samjho
zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
do jasoos karen mehsoos,
ke duniya badi kharaab hai

jab dekho hartaalen hain
jaane kiski chaalen hain
samjhaute ka naam nahi
agni mein ghee daale hain
deewaane toofan karen
logon ko hairaan karen
nehru ji ko bhool gaye
baapu ka apmaan karen
nehru ji ko bhool gaye,
baapu ka apmaan karen
apna hi ghar phoonk rahe hain
kaisa inqlaab hai
kaun hai sachcha
kaun hai jhootha
har chehre pe naqaab hai
zara socho

zara sambhal ke rahiyo ji
zara socho ho

Blog Day : 3520 Post No. : 14139

My workplace has a bank in its premises. Yesterday (7 march 2018), the female branch manager of the bank came to me seeking permission to organise a seminar for women. “Tomorrow 8 march is women’s day, you know”- she explained.

So today (8 march 2018), the bank organised a women’s day programme in the meeting hall of our workplace. The bank manager spoke on the occasion, I was asked to speak on the occasion. Bank had invited a gynaecologist who spoke about cancer among females and preventive measures to be taken.

In my address, I mentioned that I was aware of today being Women’s day because I was aware of today was Sahir Ludhianvi’s birth anniversary. I also know that Sahir Ludhianvi was born on Women’s day. 🙂 So I was aware of 8 march being the women’s day. I need to thank Raja because his articles about Sahir Ludhianvi on these occasions over the years has had the effect of this date getting indelibly ingrained in my brain’s ROM. 🙂

I cannot help but talk of Indian economy whenever I address people, no matter if they are women. 🙂 I stated that Indian GDP was growing at 7% per year. At this rate, an economy doubles in size every ten years. Indian today is a $ 2.5 trillions economy, ten years ago it was a $ 1.2 trillions economy whereas twenty years back India was $ 442 billions economy. So Indian economy is getting doubled up every ten years. I expressed the view that the contribution of Women in Indian workforce is quite meagre. If they join in the workforce and contribute to the national GDP then Indian may grow at a higher rate which means India may start doubling its economy every 6-7 years instead of every 10 years.

I also stated that we should not expect others to do our work. We popularly feel that “sarkaar” should do everything. Who is “sarkaar” ? We are “sarkaar”, since we are a unit of a central government organisation ourselves. If we improve our performance then we will help add our mite to the growth of Indian economy. Then I informed our female staff, and also the female staff of the bank how our unit was in some way among the best units in its category, thanks to the hard work done by us over the past couple of years.

Then I declared that I practiced in my personal life what I was preaching as far as women empowerment was concerned. 🙂

It is my opinion that every day is women’s day and not just 8 march. For that matter every day is man’s day as well, and every day is a children’s day as well. why wait for that designated day. we can observe these days every day. 🙂

Women empowerment does not mean using the term as a buzzword for page 3 discussion. It means given women the freedom to do what they want to do with their lives without requiring to give explanations to others, viz family, society etc and they deserve to get all the support that they can get.

There are some Hindi movies that can be described as movies supporting this theme. I posted the penultimate song of “Tapasya”(1975) recently and in the process I realised that the movie was a befitting movie to be showcased on Women’s day. This movie is based on a story by Ashapoorna Devi, a Gyanpeeth Award and Padmshree award winner Bangla novelist.

This movie was directed by Anil Ganguly for Rajshre Productions. The movie had Raakhi (in the central role), Parikshat Sahni, Asrani, Manju Bansal Asrani, A K Hangal, Nasir Hussain, Adil, Manju Bhatia, Urmila Bhatt, Birbal, Abha Dhulia, C S Dubey, Raja Duggal, Master Eknath, Gayatri etc in it.

The Hindu newspaper carried the following review of this movie :-

…We have Indrani Sinha (Raakhi Gulzar), eldest daughter of an ailing professor, Chandrakant Sinha (AK Hangal), caring for her father and three younger siblings. The college going Indu (as Indrani is fondly called) and the ailing professor’s doctor, Sagar Verma (Parikshat Sahni) fall in love, and just when Indu goes to Sagar’s house to meet his mother (Lalita Pawar), disaster strikes.

Chandrakant Sinha bids adieu to the world, leaving the responsibility of his three younger children on the shoulders of Indu, who takes the selfless decision of not getting married. In the midst of heart tugging drama and poignancy, she spurns Sagar’s proposal for marriage, even though he offers to take the three siblings to his house and care for them. Her decision is moulded to a certain extent by Sagar’s mother’s belief that being saddled with her family’s responsibility, Indu might be unable to fulfil her commitments as a wife and daughter-in- law.

To make ends meet and take care of her siblings, Vinod (Asrani), Madhu and Chanda, Indu leaves her studies and starts a school on the advice of her father’s colleague (Nazir Hussain). The first sign of dissent in the house surfaces when Vinod is exhorted to leave his house by his prospective father-in-law (Om-Shivpuri) in lieu of a good job. After the marriage, Vinod and his wife, Pinky comes to Indu’s house to attend a function. During the course of song and dance, an irritated Pinky (Manju Asrani), has an altercation, first with Madhu and Chanda, which results in an escalation of tension, at the end of which Indu slaps Vinod for offending Sagar.

A chastised and hurt Sagar decides to stop meeting Indu, and leaves on a pilgrimage with his mother. In his absence, Indu concludes the marriage of her two sisters. Thereon, she decides to leave her house for a sabbatical, but in the nick of time Vinod and Pinky come, with Pinky atoning for her prudishness. With everything settled, the only question is the outcome of Indu’s sacrifice and Sagar’s wait?

Of the cast, Asrani is a revelation. One cannot but rue the penchant of Bollywood to typecast brilliant and versatile actors into silos which they are unable to break again. Parikshat Sahni, in a restrained portrayal that suits his limited histrionic prowess, is ideal opposite Rakhee. Rest of the character actors, including Hangal, Lalita Pawar and Nazir Hussain are competent in their roles.

The movie had four songs in it. Three of the songs have been covered in the past. These are the three most well songs from the movie. Here are the details of songs already covered in the blog:-

The fourth and final song, which is the song under discussion is one that I had never heard before. But when I heard this song for the first time, I realised that this song was a special song and this deserved to be discussed as the last song, and on a special occasion with a special writeup. So here is this heart warming song from a heartwarming movie on the occasion of Woman’s day. The song is sung by Aarti Mukherji. M G Hashmat is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravindra Jain.

Picturisation shows Raakhi running her school and singing this song to young kids. Different stanzas in the song represent different years when Raakhi growing older and her younger siblings growing up. The younger siblings are finally shown grown up as the song comes to an end.

This movie “Tapasya”(1975) which I have not watched earned the national award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment for the year. In addition, Raakhi won the Filmfare award for best actress for her role in this movie. That way Raakhi did a Sanjeev Kumar in this movie, playing a role of an elderly woman when she was not even 30 years of age at that time !

With this lovely song, “Tapasya”(1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

Chorus

Lyrics

bachchon tum ho khel khilaune
bachchon tum ho khel khilaune
aane waale
kal ke sapne ae
aane waale kal ke sapne
sundar aur salone bachchon

kami na dena hone
bachchon tum ho khel khilaune
didi hum hain khel khilaune

jaante ho
apni manzil ki raah kaafi tay kar chuki hoon
kabhi kabhi sochti hoon
tum abhi tak wahin intzaar kar rahe ho
ek din jahaan se main aage badhhi thhi
tumhaara khayaal
achaanak kadmon ko rokne lagta hai
dar lagta hai
ki kahin
ye safar
adhoora na rah jaaye
aur kab tak intzaar karte rahoge

haha
main samajh gaya
tumhen is baat ka darr hai
ki kahin mere aane jaane se
tumhaari tapasya mein baadhaa na pad jaaye
main tumse vaada karta hoon Indu
ki jab tak tumhaari tapasya poori nahin hogi
main tumse nahin miloonga

mukhda tumhaara bhola bhaala
karta hai is ghar mein ujaala
mukhda tumhaara bhola bhaala
karta hai is ghar mein ujaala

“Tapasya”(1975) was directed by Anil Ganguly for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie was based on a Novel by Ashapoorna Devi. The movie is about sacrificing one’s own life for the sake of bringing up one’s younger siblings and thinking of one’s own personal life only after one’s younger siblings have been settled in their lives.

The movie had Raakhi in the central role. Others in the movie were Parikshat Sahni, Asrani, Manju Bansal Asrani, A K Hangal, Nasir Hussain, Adil, Manju Bhatia, Urmila Bhatt, Birbal, Abha Dhulia, C S Dubey, Raja Duggal, Master Eknath, Gayatri etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. Two of these songs, arguably the most popular songs of the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Tapasya”(1975) to appear in the blog. This song was also quite popular during its time. The song is sung by Chandrani Mukherji, Hemlata and chorus. M G Hashmat is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravindra Jain.

The picturisation shows Raakhi’s younger brother (played by Asrani) and his newly wedded wife (played by Manju Bansal Asrani- who was recently married to Asrani in real life as well) being teased by his younger siblings and neighbours which is the usual reception (a sort of ragging)that a newly married couple are subjected to from relatives friends and neighbours in India. The teasing is more addressed to the wife rather than the husband and the song ends with the lady getting irritated by this teasing.

The lady getting disturbed at the end disturbed me as well and so I could not gather the courage to watch the song more than a few times. So I have not provided colour coding by the two main singers in the song. 🙂


Song-Bhaabhi ki ungli mein heere ka chhalla (Tapasya)(1975) Singers-Chandrani Mukherji, Hemlata, Lyrics-M G Hashmat, MD-Ravindra Jain
Chorus

Blog Day : 3486 Post No. : 14002

Post number 14000 was written by Sudhir Ji on 1 february 2018. In that post, he made several interesting observations and he wanted my take on them. I will try to cover those points and make some points of my own.

While brieflyly discussing the previous thousandth posts, Sudhir Ji made this observation:

The 1K post

He did write that he expects the blog to go from “strength to strength” and that he would “. . .add many more thousands of songs […] in the times to come”. So this is one question I would like Atul ji to respond to specifically – was his expectations that we shall reach, where we have reached today, and still going strong??

It was 30 march 2009 when this 1000th post was published. That was nine years ago. The world was a very different place from what it has become now. I was based at Jabalpur and I hoped to stay there in future as well. I was happily settled there. It turned out that got transferred to another state in a few months time. If I was not able to foresee what was going to happen in a few months time, then how was I going to see into the future of the blog. 🙂

I was then like a batsman who worries about where his next run is going to come from. By that time, I had worked out my standard strategy of posting 6 songs daily for three days followed by seven songs on the fourth day thus adding 25 songs every four day. Repeating the same process four times, that would give me 100 songs in 16 days. So I was happily clocking 100 songs every 16 days. Those were simple days when we had not thought about “debutant” movies, “YIPPEE” movies etc. Even the concept of contributions by regulars had not taken shape. We did not have the team of contributors that we now have. I did not even have my pets at that time that have become such an important part of my life for the last six- seven years.

The pages about list of songs that we take for granted now a days were not there at that time the 1000th post was published. The “yearwise list of songs” was introduced seven days later, on 6 april 2009, followed by “moviewise list of songs” on 19 april 2009.

Very few songs were covered till then, so deciding upon “new” songs to cover was quite simple and easy those days. I was able to cover my six to seven song a day fairly comfortably, by the first half of the day itself.

No, I never thought at that time that the blog would one day have 14000 songs in it. At that time, I thought that I would run out of songs to cover after I had covered around 2500 songs. 🙂

Song post number 2000 was a rail song posted on 27 september 2009. The blog by now has 90 rail songs. I still have at least one great rail song up my sleeve. It is lying in the drafts for last seven years. It is a kind of song that may be used for a future thousandth song.

The “music directorwise list of songs” was introduced on 3 november 2009 and thus the three important song lists were put in place a little after the posting of the 2000th song in the blog.

There has been this demand for singerwise list of songs as well. Even that may come up, if I could persuade myself to do that. 🙂

As far as Raja’s tendency to enrich English dictionary with words like ‘mind-bloggling’, ‘gangout’, etc is concerned, let me assure our readers that Raja has been at it even before this blog began. We have been together in a cricket forum since 2005 and it was then and there that he had coined a term called “Atulism” for my kind of humour. He seems to have inspired others in the blog and now we find others too coining terms like “YIPPEE”, “Atulites” etc. 🙂

Raja had written the writeups for the 3000th and 4000th posts in the blog. These two posts also happened to be the thousandth posts of Lata and Rafi respectively.

5000th post was unprecedented for the blog for the levels of planning that it involved. It too combined an artist’s personal milestone with blog milestone, but the artist was far lesser known that Lata and Rafi. This less known artist, viz Bulo C Rani, was the composer of the iconic qawwali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne“. This song was a long pending “farmaish” by many people.

The planning for this post began by the time the blog had around 4700 songs in it. Bulo C Rani was only on 21 songs at that time. His songs (most of them obscure) began to be posted in the blog with suspicious regularity and his 100th post coincided with the 5000th song in the blog on 13 november 2011.

This date, 13 november became an important date as far as thousandth posts for this blog are concerned. It was exactly one year later on 13 november 2012 saw the 7000th song being posted, though at that time this coincidence went unnoticed. It was only while we were planning for 9000th post that we realised that 13 november 2011 and 2012 had seen posting of 5000th and 7000th posts. So we went into an overdrive to ensure that the 9000th post was published on 13 november 2013.

The above observations also mean that the blog was covering 2000 songs per year from 2011 to 2013. This led to the blog achieving its peak strike rate of 4.63 songs per day when the 9000th post was published on 13 november 2013. Had we maintained this rate till today (2 february 2018), we would be on 16140 instead on 14000 !

We were unable to maintain that rate and we have fallen to a rate barely above 4 songs per day. But the fact that the blog still adds “new” songs daily (albeit at a lower rate) without fail means that we are going on and on and adding more songs.

Preparation for the 10000th song was quite a remarkable exercise involving tremendous teamwork and planning for nearly three weeks. All regulars of the blog wrote articles and they themselves were introduced through articles written by other regulars. That mega exercise then culminated into the posting of the 10000 th song that rewrote HFM history. The behind the story tales of the preparations and waiting for the 10000th post are fond memories that are still fresh in the minds of regulars despite the passage of more than three years.

The way the blog has evolved with time is something that neither I nor others would have visualised in the past. We nowadays interact online on whatsapp, email, facebook, phone etc. We have had several togethers, inadvertently coined “gangout” by Raja. They are in addition to bilateral meetings, of course.

I have attended just one “gangout” in December 2014 at Mumbai, which has been my only such meeting so far. I have had meetings with some regulars at Delhi, Nagpur, Lucknow etc as well.

The interactions with other regulars have led to several ideas that have been implemented in the blog. The list of songs (yearwise, moviewise, MD wise) were introduced as results of suggestions by Raja. The concept of YIPPEE movies came from Pradeep Raghunathan. Covering missing movies in the blog was an idea that came from Khyati Bhatt.

HFM related statistics that are available online (if any) are nowhere in the same league as cricket related statistics. I dream of the day when we will be able to have authentic statistics for artists the way we have authentic statistics from cricketers. Unlike cricket, where records are kept thanks to the British legacy of discipline in cricket, Indians have failed to keep authentic records of their history, including HFM history. Still, there are some diehard HFM fans, and some of them are our own regulars, who are helping collect hard to find details of HFM and putting them in one place for easy reference. We in this blog have covered all the available songs of KL Saigal and Suraiyya, and we are just a few songs short for artists like Naushad, SD Burman, OP Nayyar etc. Even in case of Rafi and Lata, we have already covered nearly 60 % of all their songs.

Whenever we post century (or thousandth) post of an artist, we try to give moviewise breakups of all their songs. For instance, I have given such breakups for Suraiyya, Rajinder Krishan, Naushad, OP Nayyar etc. My plan is to give such breakups for all artists who have more than 100 songs in the blog. That would be extremely useful statistical exercise in the field of HFM. So keep watching the blog in future when we add statistics for all major HFM artists.

We in this blog are extremely strong when it comes to making resolutions and sticking to them. We are more than one month into 2018 and we have managed to live up to the new year blog resolutions for 2018 so far. Even today (2 February 2018), the “debutant” movie (number 3820) has been introduced. So it is time now to introduce the YIPPEE movie of the day.

The YIPPEE movie of the day is ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975). This movie was directed by Hiren Nag for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. This movie had Sachi, Sarika, Khyati (new discovey), Madan Puri, Manhar desai, Agha, Dhumal, Sundar, V Gopal, CS Dube, Madhup Sharma, Pardesi, Jugnu, Sriram, Surendra Singh, Prakash Mishra, Imtiaz Pathan, Junior Mehmood, Urmila Bhatt, Leela Mishra, Minu Mahtab, Saroj Borkar, Padma Khanna etc in it.

This movie had nine songs in it. Eight of these songs have been covered in the blog. Following are the details:

Here is the ninth and final song from this movie. This final song is a joie de vivre bailgaadi song where Sachin is seen joyously lip syncing this song while moving ever so slowly on a bullock cart, with Sarika too as a co passenger. They would take frequent breaks enroute showing that they were enjoying the journey rather than thinking about the destination. this archtypical Rajshree Production kind of bailgaadi songs were used in some subsequent Rajshree Productions movie as well. The most memorable to such bailgaadi song was Kaun disaa mein leke chalaa re batohiyaa from “Nadiya Ke Paar”(1982).

The song is sung by Jaspal Singh. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as music director.

With this song, ‘Geet Gaata Chal’ (1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Dharti meri maata pitaa aasmaan (Geet Gaata Chal)(1975) Singer-Jaspal Singh, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

oonche oonche parwaton ki baadalon se hode
oonche oonche parwaton ki baadalon se hode
nadiya bahe re saare bandhanon ko tod
phoolo ki hansi mein basi hai meri jan
mujhko to apna sa lage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

yoon to meri ankhiyon ne dekhe kayi rang

man ko na bandha maine kisi ke bhi sang
jal ke oopar tairoon main hans ke samaan

dharti meri maata pita aasmaan
mujhko to apna sa laage saara jahaan
dharti meri maata pita aasmaan

Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

It is a nice and soothing bhajan, best heard in early mornings.

“Naiyya”(1979) was directed by Prashant Nanda for Chanda Pictures, Bombay. I became aware of this fact when I discussed the earlier songs from this movie. Initially I was under the impression that this movie was a Rajshree Productions movie and once again I reverted back to the same impression with passage of time 🙂

The movie had Zarina Wahab, Prashant Nanda (new discovery for Hindi movies), Baldev Khosa, Dinesh Thakur, Leela Mishra, Mohammad Mohsin (another new discovery), Jageerdaar, Dinesh Hingoo, Nandlal Sharma, c S Dubey, Shail Chaturvedi, Shivraj, Amrish Puri, Pardesi, Om Tripathi, Shankar Bhake, Manmauji, Rooplekha etc, along with guest appearances by Sulochana, Shubha Khote and Jayshree T.

The movie had five songs in it. Four of them have been covered in the past.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Naiyya”(1979) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Hemlata. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

The song is picturised as a village nautanki song on Jayshree T and her performance is being watched by many people including a very young and lecherous looking Amrish Puri. The picturisation also shows Zarina Wahab and Leela Mishhra passing through and giving looks of disapproval to the proceedings in general and Amrish Puri in particular.

It is a rare occasion for Hemlata to sing a song like this which was the forte of Asha Bhonsle and she has done a commendable job.

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


Song-Mera joban bandha rupaiyya (Naiyya)(1979) Singer-Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD- Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

mera joban bandha rupaiyya
o teri baaton mein aake sipahiya
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
mera joban bandha rupaiya
o teri baaton mein aake sipahiya
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main

mohe pata hai tore man ke khot ka
kaahe dikhaawe mohe koda note ka
mohe pata hai tore man ke khot ka
kaahe dikhaawe mohe koda note ka
ankhiyan se tohpe karke totka
o o o o o
ankhiyan se tohpe karke totka
bhaag jaaungi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
o mera joban bandha rupaiya
teri baaton mein aake sipahiya
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main

rakkha rupaiya maine mutthhi main bheench ke
kaise luta doon aise aankh meench ke
rakkha rupaiya maine mutthhi main bheench ke
kaise luta doon aise aankh meench ke
kharcha kare jo zara haath kheench ke
o o o o o
kharcha kare jo zara haath kheench ke
uspe lutaaugi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main
o mera joban bandha rupaiya
teri baaton mein aake sipahiya
rupaiya abhi na bhunaaoogi main

“Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) was produced by Tarachand Barjatya and directed by Vijay Kapoor for Rajshree Productions, Bombay. The movie had Arun Govil, Reeta Bhaduri, Madan Puri, Leela, Rajendra Nath, Abha Dhulia etc in it.

This movie sounds like a typical Rajshree Productions movie of those days made on the lines of “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977). While “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) was a monster hit, most of the copycat movies that Rajshree productions came up with failed to create the same magic. After “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977), I went to watch Rajshree Productions next offering “Paheli” (1978), expecting the same high standards and I was badly let down. “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979) came next and I natually did not watch it. I was in fact barely aware of this movie and its songs. However, I watched some moree Rajshree Productions movies later, but that was mainly for their blockbuster music. These movies were “Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon se” (1978) and “Saawan Ko Aane Do” (1980). Two subsequent Rajshree movie that I liked for their story as well as music were “Sunayna” (1979) and “Nadiya Ke Paar” (1982).

Today (10 january 2018) is the 77th birth anniversary of Yesudas. I was looking for a Yesudas song to discuss on this occasion. Though it was Salil Chaudhary who introduced Yesudas in Hindi movies, it was Ravindra Jain who used Yesudas the most in Hindi movies and got the best out of him in his compositions. I have already covered many well known Yesudas songs under the baton of Ravindra Jain. I looked for Ravindra Jain compositions hoping to find a Yesudas song that is not yet covered. I was immediately in luck as I found this song from “Raadha Aur Seeta”(1979).

This song is a piano song where the hero sits at the grand piano and sings a song that is basically an expression of love song addressed to the heroine who happens to be leaning against the said grand piano. Elders in the family and others are dutifully present on the occasion.

The song is sung by Yesudas and Hemlata. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director. The song is picturised on Arun Govil and Reeta Bhaduri. Elders like Madan Puri, Leela Mishra etc are present and look on indulgently.

We wish Yesudas a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. What a sweet and joyous song it is. A hidden gem of a song indeed.


Song-Kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho(Raadha Aur Seeta)(1979) Singers-Yesudas, Hemlata, Lyrics-Ravindra Jain, MD-Ravindra Jain
Both

Lyrics

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchiyon se pyaar na ho
pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

jeewan hai phool
man ek panchhi
saans saans mein geet re
man panchhi phir udna na chaahe
le jo use koi jeet re
jeena re wo kaisa agar kisi pe apna koi adhikaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

is anjaane shahar mein aake
man kitna bechain thha
kisko khabar thhi inhi galiyon mein
chhupa mere dil ka chain thha
khushi to khushi hai
us khushi ka honthon se chaahe izhaar na ho
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

pahle pahal jab mujhse mile thhe
tum kitne hairaan thhe
tum meri main tumhari najar mein
dono hi naadaan thhe
mere humdum aisi galti hamse phir is baar na ho

pyaar ke bina poora koi sringaar na ho o o
kaun hai aisa jise phoolon se
geeton se
panchhiyon se pyaar na ho

Blog Day : 3455 Post No. : 13857

The new year 2018 began yesterday. We started celebrating the birthdays of artists from the first day of the year itself, by discussing a Nana Patekar song. Nana Patekar is one of many artists who chose the new year day to be born. 🙂

As far as our regulars are concerned, they are not too far behind. They are just one day behind Nana Patekar. As many as three of our regulars, namely Pradeep Raghunathan, Peevesie’s mom and Sheela ji(wife of Avinash Scrapwala) are celebrating their birthdays today on 2 january 2018. We in this blog wish them all very happy birthdays.

We have just the right song available with us to greet them. This song is from “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975).

The songs of this movie, especially its title song used to be a big rage those days. Jaspal Singh made his mark as a playback singer with this movie.

Most songs from this movie were sung by lesser known singers, namely Jaspal Singh, Chandrani Mukherji, Hemlata etc. Songs sung by Jaspal Singh in the movie were the most popular songs. But this movie also had the voices of legendary singers, viz Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar utilised once each.

I have not seen the movie but I had listened to its songs. The songs were quite popular and would play on the loudspeakers every where. I still remember those days of 1975 when I would be going on my way from my home towards my school and nearing the railway footoverbridge over Ranchi Railway station when the title song of the movie would be blaring out from a loudspeaker located nearby.

I cannot believe that it was 42 years ago that I used to listen to the songs of “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975) on loudspeaker. That is nearly half a century ago. If I go to the same location now, hoping to relive those days, I am sure that I would feel let down. Most probably that place may have undergone a sea change, with concrete jungle having come up in that place which used to be an open field, fit to be used for playing cricket, among other uses. Even my school (where I used to go) has now been relocated.

The movie had nine songs in it. Six of them, including the duet by Rafi and Asha Bhonsle (Shyam abhimaani o shyaam abhimaani) has been covered in the blog.

The movie had a solo song by Kishore Kumar in it. It was one of the rare occasions where Ravindra Jain used Kishore Kumar’s voice. But he would always make Kishore Kumar’s voice count in his compositions. The most well known Kishore Kumar song composed by Ravindra Jain is the iconic “Chor Machaaye Shor” (1973) song- Le jaayenge le jaayenge dilwaale dulhaniya le jaayenge.

As I have not seen “Geet Gaata Chal”(1975), so I am not sure how various songs in the movie have been used. Lyrics of this Kishore Kumar song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala as far back as in 2012. Somehow this song has eluded being covered in the blog. I discover that this song is a “birthday” song. That way it is an appropriate song for the occasion of the birthdays of three of our regulars.

The picturisation shows this song lip synced by Madan Puri who is seen singing this song to celebrate the birthday of Sachin. Those were simple days when mostly children used to get to celebrate their birthdays in real as well as reel lives in India. 🙂

The song is sung by Kishore Kumar and chorus. Ravindra Jain is the lyricist as well as the music director.

HFGK counts this song as one song though this song had two versions. Apart from the well known happy version, this song has a brief sad version of it too.

Here is wishing all our young at heart birthday kids a very happy birthday today.

Bachpan mein jo paate hain
Wo hanste huye din
Gaati wo raatein
Laut ke phir nahin aate hain
Laut ke phir nahin aate hain
Yaadon ke saaye mein
Waqt bitaanaa hota hai
Ke bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
Bachpan har gham se
Begaanaa hotaa hai
