Blog Day : 4972 Post No. : 16847 Movie Count : 4582

I have in my earlier posts mentioned that nowadays I am getting to listen ‘radio’ for at least ‘two to two and half’ hours every day. And mainly I listen the programmes on Vividh Bharati only.

So, in the morning time it is part of ‘ham hai raahi pyaar ke’ and ‘Bharat ki goonj’ and evening times it is part of or sometimes full edition of ‘Shaam sindoori’, ‘Sangeet sarita’, ‘Jaymala’ etc.
Now that is the daily schedule since 2nd November’2020. This has given me the opportunity to listen variety of songs from the yesteryears and even the songs from recent times. I have come across many unheard songs and some beautiful songs even from the eighties and nineties. I will try to share them as and when possible.

For today’s post I am presenting a song from the 1987 movie ‘Aakhiri Nishchay
’, which I got to listen in a program on ‘Vividh Bharti’.

Though many sources mention this movie’s name as ‘Nishchay’ too. I think the ‘Nishchay-1986’ was later released in ‘1987’ with the title as ‘Aakhiri Nishchay’.
While searching more details for this movie first I landed to the movie name ‘Nishchay’ and later it was cleared, that it is ‘Aakhiri Nishchay’. Though ‘vinyl’ images for ‘Nishchay’ (not to be confused he same name movie ‘Nishchaiy’ of 1992) are also available. (Though ‘Hindi Filmography’ 1986-2013 doesn’t mention any such note for this movie).

‘Nishchay-1986’ or ‘Aakhiri Nishchay-1987’ was directed by K.C. Agarwal for ‘B. Govinda Productions’.

Jairam Chawla was the producer of this movie.

It had Shekhar Suman, Sadhna (south), Seema Vaz, Satish Kaul, Surendra Pal, Sudhir Dalvi, Yunus Parvez, Bali Grover, Ratan Allakh, Jay Chawla, Raja Duggal, Raj Kishore, Asha Sharma, Anil Chaddha and others. The movie also featured a dog – Jackie.

As mentioned in ‘Hindi Filmography (1986-2013)’ this movie was passed by Censor Board on 29.12.1987.

Almost all the sources mentions that this movie had four songs in it. Voices of Mahendra Kapoor, Anup Jalota, Hemalata and Susheel Kumar are used in these songs.

Lyrics for all the four songs were written by Ravindra Jain who is also the music director for this movie.

When today’s song was playing on VVB I liked it very much because of the tune, words and singing of this song which is very beautiful, and this is a ‘sweet’ ‘romantic’ duet. This song is sung by Hemlata and Susheel Kumar.

As mentioned above lyrics for this song have been written by Ravindra Jain who is also the music composer for this movie.

And today 28th February’2022 is the seventy-eighth birth anniversary of music-director, lyricist Ravindra Jain (28 February 1944 – 9 October 2015). On this occasion we pay our tributes to Ravindra Jain and listen to this song written and composed by him.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs and other details.

Let us now listen to today’s song …

With this song ‘Aakhiri Nishchay-1987’ makes its debut on the blog …

In Hindi film industry, there have been many ‘rags to riches’ stories since its inceptions. There were instances where ‘rags to riches’ went back to their ‘rags’ status because they could not prudently handle their wealth and the fame. On the other hand, there are instances who could retain their rich status thanks to their dedication to work as well as prudent financial planning. One of them was Chandrashekar Narvekar, who is known in Hindi film industry as N. Chandra (born 04/04/1952).

N Chandra was born and brought up in a lower middle class family in the midst of mill workers in Worli Naka. The working class had their chawls and hutments at the foot of Worli Hills while the affluent class of the society lived on the top of the hills. So, he had closely seen the economic disparity between the rich and the poor.

After completion of his high-school, N Chandra joined the Film Centre at Tardeo in the film editing division where his father was employed. He learnt the nuances of film editing. In 1971, he started as clapper boy for Gulzar’s ‘Mere Apne’ (1971) and became one of Gulzar’s assistant directors in ‘Parichay’ (1972), ‘Koshish’ (1972), ‘Achanak’ (1973), Aandhi’ (1975), ‘Khushboo’ (1975) and ‘Mausam’ (1975). Chandrashekhar Narvekar changed his name to N Chandra when he became the associate director to Bapu in ‘Bezubaan’ (1982) and ‘Woh 7 Din’ (1983) for which he was also a full-pledged Editor of these two films.

While working for ‘Woh 7 Din’ (1983), N Chandra got the inspiration to independently direct a Hindi film. He co-produced and directed his debut film ‘Ankush’ (1986) with non-star actors, most of whom were from Marathi and Gujarati stages. The story of the film was based on what N Chandra had witnessed during his younger days in Worli Naka after a prolonged mill workers strike. At that time, Worli-Lower Parel areas of Mumbai had the highest concentrations of cotton mills. The prolonged strike led to the closure of mills permanently, creating unemployment among the youth and the social unrest.

‘Ankush’ (1986) grossed over 3 crores on the box office on a budget of Rs,12 lakhs, a part of which was raised by N Chandra by selling his personal belongings. The tremendous success of the film helped Nana Patekar in improving his career graph as an actor. For N Chandra, the film boosted his confidence that a good story based on the contemporary subject with a realistic approach in direction could make a film successful even with non-star actors. His next two films – ‘Pratighaat’ (1987) and ‘Tezaab’ (1988) completed a sort of a trilogy of films on social justice.

‘Pratighaat’ (1987) was the second film which N Chandra directed apart from writing the screen-play and editing the film. The film was produced by A Ramoji Rao and was a remake of a Telugu film ‘Pratighatana’ (1985) which was also remade in Malayalam as ‘Pakarathinu Pakaram’ (1986). Sujata Mehta, a prominent Gujarati stage actor who had become popular with her Hindi TV serials ‘Khandaan’ (1985) and ‘Shrikant’ (1986), made her debut in this film as a lead actor along with Arvind Kumar and Charan Raj. The other actors included Rohini Hattangadi, Ashok Saraf, Mohan Bhandari, Nana Patekar, Subbiraj, Usha Nadkarni, Savita Bajaj, Ravi Patwardhan, Anuradha Sawant etc. The film was released on March 17, 1987.

Even though, in the film, Sujata Mehta was paired with Arvind Kumar, it was Charan Raj who had a larger presence in the film in the role of a criminal, Kali Prasad. Charan Raj is a Kannada actor who mostly did the role of a villain in Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi films. He has also produced, directed and composed music for some films.

The DVD of the film is available for on-line for viewing. However, the quality of the picture as well as sound is not of good quality. Hence, I have watched the film sporadically. The gist of the story of the film is as under:

Laxmi (Sujata Mehta) is married to Satya Prakash (Arvind Kumar) who is a practicing lawyer. Laxmi works as a scool teacher. In the town, there is a hardened criminal, Kali Prasad (Charan Raj) whose writ rules over the entire town as he has blessing from a local politician. He has bee arrested in the past but gets release on bail with the blessing of a local politician which is followed by Kali taking the revenge on the complainers or the policeman who arrested him, resulting in their deaths. One of the victims is an ex-constable (Nana Patekar) who has become insane after his wife is brutually killed by Kali.

Laxmi finds it odd that even her school is under the influence of Kali for his notorious activities. She seeks help from her college-mate, sub-inspector, Ajay Shrivastav (Mohan Bhandari). He tells Laxmi that there is no point in arresting him as no one would stand witness against him and he gets the bail.
Nonetheless, Ajay arrests him after which he gets the bail. In the broad daylight, Ajay is murdered by Kali and Laxmi has witnessed his murder. She is ready to stand witness against Kali in the police station. Kali takes revenge on Laxmi by striping her in the public and in front of her husband who is scared to rescue her.

Laxmi takes a vow that she would continue to fight against Kali for justice and she is helped by Durga (Rohni Hattangadi) whose husband was killed by Kali for lodging complaint against him in the police station. Local election is due and Kali has been selected as a candidate. Laxmi stands in the elections against Kali. Kali’s hooligans create a lot of problem for Laxmi in her election campaign. Kali wins the election by booth capturing.

During the election victory celebration, Laxmi reaches on the stage and congratulate him on his election victory. She has brought a real axe which was the election symbol of Kali and hacks him to death in front of a large crowd. The film ends with police arriving on the scene and arresting Laxmi who sarcastically tells the Inspector that she is happy that he is doing his duties which he failed to do so while Kali was on a killing spree in the town.

‘Pratighaat’ (1987) made with non-star cast was a runway success at the box office front. The film reviews highly praised the performance of Sujata Mehta and Charan Raj.

The film had four songs all written and composed by Ravindra Jain. I am presenting the first song, ‘tere sar pe mere pyaar kaa farz hai’ from the film to appear on the Blog. The song is rendered by S P Balasubrahmanyam and S Janaki.

With this song, the film, ‘Pratighaat’ (1987) makes its debut on the Blog.

Blog Day :

4811 Post No. : 16580

In recent days the ‘Yippeeee’ activity has taken a backseat on the blog. The ‘Yippeeee’ project too has been slowed down, and it is almost one year now when our ‘Yippeeee Guru’ had appeared last giving his darshan to ‘Yippeeee members like me’. 😊

I wished we should be ‘Yippeeee’ing’ at least one movie in a week if not daily. The last Yippeeee moment on the blog was on 27th July’2021 when the final song of movie ‘Jai Santoshi Maa-1975’ got covered and the movie got YIPPEED.

There are quite a few movies waiting for their final song to be covered in the blog and thus getting admitted to the club of YIPPEED movies.

Today we induct one more movie to the hall of fame of YIPPEELAND. This movie is ‘Saudagar-1973’.

I had watched this movie years back on a TV channel. But until I had not watched this movie, I mainly associated this movie with its songs ‘Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon’ and ‘Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye’ . I think these two songs were the well-known songs from this movie. But after watching the movie I do like other couple of songs from this movie and mainly the ‘majhi song’ – ‘door hai kinaaraa’ which grows up on us as we listen to it more and more. I like the movie and story content and presentation too.

This movie debuted on the blog on 04.04.2009 with its first song Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon. After that within a gap of less than two weeks the second song of this movie was posted on the blog and this was ‘Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye’ which got posted on 15.04.2009.

One more known song from this movie i.e., Tera mera saath rahe followed the second song just after a gap of one day and this was posted on 17.04.2009. The fourth song of this movie followed the third song and was posted on next day i.e., on 18.04.2009. The fourth song posted on the blog was ‘Door hai kinaaraa, gehri nadi ki dhaaraa’.

After this fourth song the movie had to wait the next ten years when its fifth song was posted on the blog. This song was presented by Shri. Sudhir ji. He discussed the story and other details of this movie in his post. This fifth song was ‘champa nahin, chameli nahin, main genda nahin, gulaab nahin… main hoon phool baano’. I would request our readers to visit this post to read about the movie in detail. This song was posted in ‘Blog Ten Years Challenge’ on 04.04.2019. This was the fifth song from this movie posted on the blog.

The sixth song of this movie then appeared after a gap of more than a year and was posted on the blog on 09.10.2019. This song was ‘Husn hai ya koi qayaamat hai’. This song-post was presented by Peevesie’s Mom ji as tribute to the music director Ravindra Jain on his Remembrance Day. Peevesie’s Mom ji had also discussed about the story and other details of the movie in her post. I will not repeat them all again here.

Today’s song is the seventh and final song of this movie to be posted on the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Padma Khanna lip-syncs the song on the screen. Amitabh Bachchan is also seen in the picturization.

“Saudagar-1973” was a ‘Rajshri Pictures Pvt Ltd, Bombay’ ‘s presentation. It was directed by Sudhendu Roy. It had Nutan, Amitabh Bachchan, Padma Khanna, Trilok Kapoor, Murad, Dev Kishan, V. Gopal, C.S. Dubey, Pardesi, Narbada Shankar, Santosh Ghosh, Nadir, Rasraj, Paritosh Chaudhary, Ashok Mitra, Samar Roy, Jugnu, Chandu Ilaahabadi, Ramesh Verma, Shriram Shastri, Chaturvedi, Bihari, Leela Mishra, Paro, Habiba, Salma, Sitara, Suraiyya, Master Saka, Master Firdaus, Baby Shameena and many others.

This movie had seven songs. All songs of this movie were written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of ‘Saudagar-1973’ as mentioned in HFGK-Vol-V (1971-1980).

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
———————————————————–
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 149 # Qawwalis – 13 #
———————————————–

Today’s song – a qawwali – is from the 1979 movie “Aatish”. Memories of this qawwaali were revived when I was listening to a daily programme on Vividh Bharati. I had earlier shared another song from the same movie. That song too was a result of memories coming alive when I listened to that song on Vividh Bharati. That was in March-2021, and the song was Main nehlaa thhi bas nehlaa ….

When I listened to this ‘qawwali’ I liked it because of its ‘catchy’ tune. The picturisation of this ‘qawwali’ suggests that it takes place in the movie in the ‘villain’s den’ where Neetu Singh is in double role. One of the two disguised persons trying to help is Jeetendra I guess. Also seen in the picturisation of the song are Mukri, Dheeraj Kumar, Madan Puri, Master Raju, and many others.

“Aatish-1979” was directed by Ambarish Sangal for ‘M.K. Enterprises, Bombay’. It had Jeetendra, Neetu Singh, Rinku, Dheeraj, Leena Das, Om Shivpuri, Mukri, Mumtaz Begam, Master Raju, Nirupa Roy, Madan Puri, Sujit Kumar (in special appearance), Brahm Bharadwaj, Subhash Kanwal, Kamal Deep, Ranveer Raj, Chandru, Kishan, Ashok Saxena, Raj Kumar, Ram Narayan, and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.02.1979.

There were six songs in this movie written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of this movie as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s post takes one more movie to YYIIPPEEEEHood.

“Khwaab” (1980) was a crime, court room drama genre movie with some romance and great songs thrown in for making it a complete entertainer. It had a cast of Ranjeeta, Yogita Bali, Mithun Chakraborty, Naseeruddin Shah, with Ashok Kumar, Madan Puri, Utpal Dutt leding the supporting cast which also had Chaman Puri, Birbal, Jagdish Raj, Sujit Kumar, Yunuz Parvez, Dinesh Thakur etc. It was directed by Shakti Samanta, had dialogues by Dr. Rahi Masoom Reza, songs were written and composed by Raindra Jain. Hemlata, Yesudas, Suresh Wadkar, Jaspal Singh and Mohd. Rafi were the playback singers.
The movie had four songs three of which are on the blog as follows:

Song Date of posting Remarks
Tu hi wo haseen hai 31 july 2015
Ek aas luye vishwaas liye 20 July 2020
Ham khwaab ko badal denge haqeeqat mein 22 September 2020 a very good post by Nahmji where she spoke about the usage of the English alphabet ‘K’ in Indian languages

Today’s song is an ‘outdoors song’ possibly inspired by the “jootaa hai japani” song from “Shri 420” (1955). We see Mithun walking, singing and dancing his way to Bombay (as it used to be called back then) and Raj Kapoor’s potli on a stick is replaced by a suitcase. On the way he sees Ranjeeta zipping past in an open Red car complete with sunglasses and Red Hat etc. These aspects -the open car had to be Red and two seater; the driver dressed smartly and slightly haughty- were mandatory to establish character-traits. And by the time the song comes to a close Mithun sees that Ranjeeta’s car has stalled- another mandatory. 🙂 The singer is K J Yesudas.

We are having this song to Wish Mithunda a very Happy birthday- may the song and dance and entertainment continue forever.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 127 # Aatish-1979#
——————————————-—————————

I had mentioned in one of my earlier post on the blog, that nowadays (since Nov’2020 end) I got to listen to the radio utilizing my morning and evening time of about an hour or so while commuting towards my workplace (in the morning) and while returning back (in the evening). And normally I tune in to ‘Vivid Bharati’ only.

This exercise has given me an opportunity to listen to many songs from yesteryears and also songs from new movies. The joy and excitement of ‘the next song to be played’ is always there as on radio we cannot play songs of our choice.

Today’s song is one such song. hen I was listening to it, it sounded familiar but then I had not attentively listened to the name of the movie while the broadcast was on. The refrain ‘salaam salaam salaam’ in this song sounded familiarbut I could not put a finger to it. So, I looked for the details of this song.

This song turned out to be from the ‘1979’ movie ‘Aatish’.

That reminded me that I had watched this movie in the ‘summer vacations’ at Akola with my brothers and cousins. But I do not remember anything about the story of this movie and other details. Only thing that is still fresh in my mind is that this was a ‘Jeetendra Movie’. 😊

I looked for the video of this song and found that this song is performed by Neetu Singh (and I must say she is looking very beautiful in this song). Jeetendra, the object of her craving, is also present in the picturization of this song.

“Aatish-1979” was directed by Ambarish Sangal for ‘M.K. Enterprises, Bombay’. It had Jeetendra, Neetu Singh, Rinku, Dheeraj, Leena Das, Om Shivpuri, Mukri, Mumtaz Begam, Master Raju, Nirupa Roy, Madan Puri, Sujit Kumar (in special appearance), Brahm Bharadwaj, Subhash Kanwal, Kamal Deep, Ranveer Raj, Chandru, Kishan, Ashok Saksena, Raj Kumar, Ram Narayan and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 16.02.1979.

There were six songs in this movie written and composed by Ravindra Jain.

Here is the list of songs of this movie as appearing in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980);

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Ladke ke bhes mein ladki hoon Asha Bhonsle, Chorus
02 Main nehlaa thhi bas nehlaa Asha Bhonsle Being discussed today
03 O meri laadli pyaari behnaa Mohd Rafi, Hemlata 13.08.2011
04 Sharaab hai, haan, sharaab hai Mohd Rafi, Chorus
05 Babu manejara ve he babu, manejara ve Lata, Rafi, Chorus
06 Kahin naam na apnaa likh dena … Asha Bhonsle, Hemlata, Bhushan Mehta, Mohd Rafi, chorus

Only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 13.08.2011. So, one can notice that this movie is about to complete its ‘ten-year’ run on the blog within next five months. 😊

let us now listen to today’s song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and lip-synced on screen by Neetu Singh. As mentioned above lyrics are by Ravindra Jain who has also the music director for this movie.

Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-11
—————————————————–

Welcome all to this post on ‘Sahir and His Music Directors’.

Today’s post is the last post in this series. In this post, I will give update on Sahir’s filmography and the statistics of the songs so far covered on the blog.

Let us take a look on the posts earlier covered under this series;

Sr.No. Song Title Movie Name & its Year Music Director Posted On
01 Ho balle balle bhai reshmi dupatta waaliye ‘Dhanwaan-1981’ Hridaynath Mangeshkar 26.10.2020
02 Aaja meri jawaani ko mastaani ko ‘Bhaai Ho To Aisa-1972’ Sonik Omi 04.12.2020

05 Marta hai koyi to mar jaaye ‘Chambal Ki Kasam-1979’ Khayyam 30.01.2021
06 Haathhaapaayee naa karo ‘Jiyo Aur Jeene Do-1982’ Laxmikant-Pyarelal 02.02.2021
07 Meharbaan kaise kaise ‘Jaagriti-1977’ Laxmikant-Pyarelal 09.02.2021
08 Main hoon pari adaaon bhari ‘Chehre Pe Chehra-1980’ N. Datta 28.02.2021
09 Jaane kyun baar baar baar mera dil ‘Paisa Ya Pyaar-1969’ Ravi 02.03.2021
10 Meri baari re kaahe ko bhoole banwaari ‘Chingaari-1971/1989’ Ravi 04.03.2021

The purpose of the above posts was to take a look on the collaboration of Sahir Ludhianvi as Lyricist with various music directors, and to discuss a song composed by the respective music director from a movie which has so far not been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog.

In the ‘one-movie collaboration’ three movies were eligible viz. ‘Aazaadi Ki Raah Pe-1948’ (MD-G.D. Kapoor), ‘Bhaai Ho To Aisa-1972’ (MD-Sonik Omi) and ‘Dhanwaan-1981’ (MD- Hridaynath Mangeshkar).
Sahir wrote four songs for ‘Aazaadi Ki Raah Pe-1948’ of which only one has been posted on the blog earlier. The remaining three songs have not been traced or are unavailable as of now.
From ‘Bhaai Ho To Aisa-1972’ only one song had been posted earlier but ‘Dhanwaan-1981’ was only one short of Yippeeee, so here we took a song composed by Hridaynath Mangeshkar from ‘Dhanwaan-1981’ and it was posted on 26.10.2020.

Moving forward we covered another song from the ‘one movie collaboration’ where the movie ‘Bhaai Ho To Aisa-1972’ was having only one song posted since 24.01.2009.

In the third post we discussed the ‘two-movies collaboration’ with a song from music director Kalyanji-Anandji from ‘Nanha Farishta-1969’ as it was the oldest movie not ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog from this ‘collaboration’. (Here in this scenario, we were also having songs composed by Ravindra Jain from the movie ‘Ham Tere Aashiq Hain-1979’ to be posted on the blog.)

The ‘three-movies collaboration’ of Sahir was only with music director Madan Mohan and all the songs of this ‘collaboration’ were already covered on the blog. So, we moved to the ‘four-movies collaboration’ where we had an opportunity to cover songs composed by R.D. Burman. Out of the four movies of ‘Sahir-Pancham collaboration’, we had two movies viz. ‘Joshilaa-1973’ and ‘The Burning Train-1980’ of which songs were available to be posted. We covered a song from ‘Joshilaa-1973’ as it was the oldest movie pending.

In the ‘five-movies collaboration’ we had two music directors viz. O.P. Nayyar and Khayyam Saab.
All songs composed by O.P. Nayyar had already been covered on the blog long back and we had only one movie ‘Chambal Ki Kasam-1979’ where music was composed by Khayyam Saab, and few of its songs were remaining to be posted. In the post no.5, we discussed a song from ‘Chambal Ki Kasam-1979’.

We did not have any ‘six-movies collaboration’, so we move to ‘seven-movies collaboration’ where we had Roshan and Laxmikant-Pyarelal collaborating with Sahir for seven movies each.
But in this case also we first discussed a song from a debutant movie which was so far not launched on the blog. This movie was ‘Jiyo Aur Jeene Do-1982’ where Sahir Ludhianvi had written lyrics for two songs and music was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. We covered a song from this movie in the sixth post under this series.

In the next article we again took a song from the above collaboration from the movie ‘Jaagriti-1977’ which was already present on the blog.

After this ‘seven-movie collaboration’, we were left with three great collaborations of Sahir Ludhianvi with music directors N. Datta, S.D. Burman and Ravi. All these were more than ‘ten-movies collaborations’.

In the eighth post we discussed the Sahir-N. Datta collaboration for seventeen movies with a song from ‘Chehre Pe Chehra-1980’.

Next collaboration as per the number of movies was eighteen movies of Sahir-S.D. Burman collaboration.

From this collaboration three songs of ‘Laal Kunwar’ are pending to be covered, but these songs are not available and it seems that they were difficult to find. We are not concluding them as ‘lost’ hoping that someday somebody will come up with their links.

However, one ‘snippet’ of ‘verses’ from ‘Pyaasaa-1957’ was available to covered which we left to be covered on a ‘special day’ with ‘special post’.

Here we move on to the next ‘big collaboration’ which is ‘Sahir Ludhianvi and music director Ravi’. They collaborated in nineteen movies. In the ninth post we took a song from the oldest movie pending on the blog which was ‘Paisaa Ya Pyaar-1969’ because one song from ‘Gumraah-1963’ has not been traced till date and we hope that this will also be found some day or other in the future.

Taking ‘cinematic liberty 😊’ again, in the tenth post, we covered a beautiful bhajan composed by Music Director Ravi from the movie ‘Chingaari-1971/1989’. And we also took a look at the filmography of ‘Sahir-Ravi collaboration’.

In this series we tried to bring on board songs by various music directors that were yet to be posted on the blog.

And after the last post i.e., post no. 10 of 04.03.2021 the list of remaining Sahir songs on the blog is as given below;

Sno Name of the Movie Year Music Director Remaining songs
1 Aazadi Ki Raah Pe 1948 G.D. Kapoor 3
7 Laal Kunwar 1952 S.D. Burman 3
53 Dilli Ka Daada 1962 N. Dutta 1
58 Gumraah 1963 Ravi 1
78 Nanha Farishta 1969 Kalyanji – Anandji 2
79 Paisaa Ya Pyaar 1969 Ravi 1
85 Bhaai Ho To Aisa 1972 Sonik Omi 3
91 Mehmaan 1973 Ravi 2
101 Jaagriti 1977 Laxmikant-Pyarelal 2
104 Hum Tere Aashiq Hain 1979 Ravindra Jain 5
106 Chambal Ki Qasam 1979 Khayyam 2
107 Chehre Pe Chehra 1980 N. Dutta 4
109 The Burning Train 1980 R.D. Burman 2
112 Jiyo Aur Jeene Do 1982 Laxmikant-Pyarelal 1
115 Chingaari 1989 Ravi 2

Readers might have noted that while discussing the songs composed by various music directors, we have so far not covered a song composed by music director Ravindra Jain.
So, here in this post today, we are discussing a song composed by him from the movie ‘Ham Tere Aashiq Hain-1979’ of which only one song has been posted so far on 27.06.2019 on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar. It is lip synced on screen by Hema Malini and Jeetendra respectively.

The words of the song are interesting in the context of this series ‘planned’ by me and the ‘goal’ to be achieved 😊
But still as on today I cannot say ‘maar liyaa maidaan’ as the song goes … though I can say ‘ghodaa-maidaan door nahin’ 😊 and only readers can tell ‘kaisaa rahaa palaan’ 😊 ‘badhhiyaa rahaa ya nahin’ 😊

I leave it here for the song to be enjoyed by readers (a lesser heard song though, may be because the movie was also not successful, I think) …

As a parting gift for today, here is the list of Sahir filmography with respect to the songs already posted on the blog excluding the today’s song; (readers can well guess here ‘what the ‘goal’ is. If it is achieved well and good, and even if it is not achieved, I am satisfied that I tried my best to do something … now leaving it to the ‘powers’ beyond my control 😊)
(I am thankful to Atul ji and Sudhir ji for giving me this opportunity to do this write-ups and also I am thankful to all readers of this blog who have read this posts and given their feedback with comments) …

Meri aawaaz hi pehchaan hai
gar yaad rahe
ho o o naam gum jaayegaaaaaa
chehra yeh badal jaayegaa
meri aawaaz hi pehchaan hai ae
gar yaad rahe

I wonder if human voices are like DNA or fingerprints, as no two voices are ever absolutely the same. In blood relatives the voices are very similar, but they are also distinguishable with slight differing inflections. We have experienced such situations where, we have not met a person for a few years, but as soon as we hear their voice, without seeing them at first, we recognize the person and the face flashes before the eyes, before we turn around and actually see that person.

Connecting with people on the cell phone is not the same. We tend to recognise people by the names which are saved in the phone. If people with whom we have lost touch, call on the phone, most of the times they have to identify themselves. Unless it is a person who is very close to us, it is most likely that it will not be recognised. Reliance on technology is eroding the human capacities of recognition and memory. The adventure of people calling from faraway places and the delight that was felt when hearing from loved one on landline phones is dwindled.

Now the last few weeks, I was on vacation, ostensibly for the special occasion of my 3rd century post. I have been looking to find some more songs and more importantly outdoorsy songs, to write posts. There are many thousand songs filmed on locations around the world in newer hindi films. Quite a few of them are very nice and decent songs. Pleasing on the ears and on the eyes.

I don’t want to run more concurrent series, so this will be random song post in between, picturised on outdoor exotic(read fresh) locations.

I talked of voices and inflection in the opening paragraph of this post. The voice of Meena Kumari is a distinct lively sound and I though the voice of ZebaBakhtiar carries some similar inflections to Meena Kumari’s voice. Zeba is a Pakistani actor who played the lead role in the R.K. Films ‘Henna’ 1991. The clothes worn by her in this one film have had a lasting impact on Indian fashions and clothing style for women for these 3 decades. This film brought the ‘Anarkali’ pattern with a bang, and the style has carved a niche in the Indian dressy and formal outlook. Common Indians like to be modestly and festively dressed in weddings and functions, prefer this style. The ‘Anarkali’ once arrived has made itself a permanent fixture in the wardrobes of Indian fashionistas and commoners. The Anarkali has changed various avatars, but it has stayed ahead of the traditional chaniya choli in high fashion.

Bhanu Athaiya(April 28, 1929 – October 15, 2020) is the costume designerfor ‘Henna’ 1991, the first Indian to have won an Oscar award, which she did for ‘Gandhi’ 1982.

I have seen a few songs of Henna just now, and found a couple of imaginatively picturised on location songs. The song being presented here is a Lata solo, written and composed by Ravindra Jain. I have chosen this song, for its melodious tune and also for its picturization showing snowy mountains, green manicured gardens and around an unmanicured river locations at ‘Austria’.

It is clear from what I have seen today, that though the idea of this film was conceived by Raj Kapoor, but the actual filming in done after the death of Raj Kapoor. Only one song, the qawwali has so far been covered in the blog, so this is the second song to posted from this film.

In this song, I think Zeba dances like a doll, and her moves are totally without avarice. Appreciable that she has looked this good on screen, only on the strength of the dresses and some makeup which is rather a distraction from her real beauty. The narrow shouldered fragile look is another thing she shares with the young Meena Kumari.

Since today is new year day of the Gregorian calender, followed the world over, here is the pragmatic Faiz Ahmed Faiz:

– Naya saal –
Aye naye saal bataa tujh mein nayapan kya hai
Har taraf khalq ne kyun shor macha rakkha hai

Din ki roshi wahi, taaron bhari raat wahi
Aaj ham ko nazar aati hai har ek baat wahi

Aasmaan badla, afsos na badley hai zameen
Ek hindse ka badalna koyi jiddat to nahin

Agle barson ki tarah honge kareene tere
Kise maaloom nahi? barah mahine tere

Tu naya hai to dikha subah nayi shaam nayi
Warna in aankhon ne dekhe hain naye saal kayee

The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 114 # Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1975 #
——————————————————————————————-

I was aware of the movie ‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1957’ mainly associating it with its song ‘raat ne kya kya khwaab dikhaaye’ sung by Talat Mahmood. However, during the tagging of this movie for ‘Yippeeeee Project’ I came across a vinyl cover of a movie having same title with Rakesh Pandey featuring on its cover. That was more than a hint for me that this could be of a movie from the ‘seventies. When I checked it in HFGK Vol-V, I found this movie made in the year of ‘1975’. (I may have read the movie name earlier in the ‘Geet-Kosh’ but may had forgotten about it).

Today ‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1975’ get introduced on the blog to join ‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani’ of ‘1957’. And that serves our mission of bringing movies with same titles on the blog.

‘Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani-1975’ was directed by S.S. Balan for ‘Gemini Pictures Circuit Pvt Ltd, Madras’. S.S. Balan was also the producer of this movie. M.S. Vishwanath was the co-director of this movie and Kittapaa and Rangan were the assistant directors for this movie.

The movie was based on an original ‘Kannada’ screen play written and directed by Siddalingayya. It had Rakesh Pandey, Jeevan, Jayshree Gadkar, Neerja, Baby Rama, Nazeer Hussain, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, C.D. Dubey, Bramchari, V. Gopal, Birbal, Ram Avtar, Bihari, Sharif Romani, Ishwarlal, Raghva, Master Raju, and introducing Lokesh and Manjula.

Story of this movie was written by Gorur Ramswami Ayyiyangar and dialogues were written by Vishwanath. diting of this movie was done by M. Umanath with M. Mani as his assistant.

This movie had five songs written by Indeewar and composed to music by Ravindra Jain.

S.No. Song title Singer/s
01 Tu hi bataa tujhe paane ka kaun sa hai tarikaa Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
02 Kesar jaisi tu kishori, kanchan kaaya teri gori Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle
03 Meri banno pyaari banno Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar
04 Sukh shaanti usey kya miley jiske man mein bair… kuchh naa milaa kisiko nafrat ke dwaar se.. Mohd Rafi
05 Jai kaali, jai mahaakaali, karna tu sabki rakhwaali Manna Dey, Jaspal Singh

Asha Bhonsle, Jaspal Singh, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey, Mohd Rafi and Usha Mangeshkar had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 19.04.1975.

(I have not watched this movie but whatever visuals I have watched during the preparation of this post it seems that the movie was shot on beautiful locations of Karnataka and as acknowledged in the titles the places are Village – Kalasapura, Kelagur Coffee & Tea Estates etc. (Knowledgeable readers who have watched this movie can throw more light on this)).

Today we are going to listen a song from this movie sung by Mohd Rafi. The lyrics by Indeewar are worth paying heed to and it carries a message relevant for all times (I think so).

However, it seems that this song was not included in the movie, except for the first few lines (I guess that maybe it was censored? because of the straight forward lyrics).

The movie is available online and though I had not watched this movie I was looking for when this song happens in the movie. There is a scene in this movie where the rival groups of the village – one led by Rakesh Pandey and other (I think) by Lokesh – are shown coming out of the court premises where the song starts but after the first four lines only the music keeps playing and not the verses. This is the only solo song in this movie and all other are duet songs.

Let us now listen to the song written by Indeewar and composed by Ravindra Jain. Mohd Rafi is the singer of this ‘song with a message’…

Song-Kuchh na mila kisi ko nafrat ke dwaar se (Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani)(1975) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Ravindra Jain

Lyrics

sukh shaanti
usey kya aa miley ae
jiske man mein bair
aapas ke ae
is bair mein
nahin kisi ki khair

kuchh naa milaa kisi ko
nafrat ke dwaar se ae
kuchh naa milaa kisi ko
nafrat ke dwaar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se
kuchh naa milaa kisi ko
nafrat ke dwaar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se

kisi ki uljhan kabhi naa suljhi ee ee
court kachehari jaa ke
har vakeel kaa
kyun bharte ho
apne ghar ko lutaa ke
ho o o
apnaa galaa naa kaato
apni hi talwaar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se

Insaan ki aadat
aur adaalat
donon ek hi jaise
jeewan bhar ye pind na chhoden
inse bache ae koyi kaise
ho o o
jeet se bhi dukh utna
dukh jitnaa haar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se
kuchh naa milaa kisi ko
nafrat ke dwaar se ae
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se
kuchh naa milaa kisi ko
nafrat ke dwaar se
adaalat ke dwaar se ae ae
aapas ki taqraar ko
niptaa lo pyaar se

सुख शान्ति

अपना गला ना काटो
अपनी ही तलवार से

Hullo Atuldom

“Saudaagar” released on 26th october 1973, that means it is 15-days short of 47 years ago. The movie had Nutan paired with Amitabh Bachchan (he was yet to taste success, when he signed up for the movie). He played a ‘Gur’ trader who made a living out of ‘gur’ made from Date-syrup by Mahzubeen -a widow played by Nutan. He meets Phoolbanu (Padma Khanna), likes her, and approaches her father with a marriage proposal. Phoolbanu’s father (Murad) asks for ‘Mehar’ which Moti (AB) does not have. So he proposes marriage to Mahzubeen, so that he doesn’t have to pay her for the ‘gur-making’ and save up for the mehar by the end of the ‘gur-season’. At the end of the season he divorces Mahzubeen and again approaches Phoolbanu’s father who is satisfied with the mehar and Moti marries Phoolbanu. But he faces a problem when the ‘gur’ as the product made by Phoolbanu is not on the same level as the previous season and Moti loses customers and business. He is forced to seek out Mahzubeen who has by the married a widower who is honest to her that he wants a mother for his children. Moti requests her to make a few “vats of gur’ she is at first upset at him for the way he had treated her. She relents on seeing Phoolbanu and Moti’s pitiable condition. The movie ends with the two ladies meeting each other affectionately signifying that Mahzubeen had forgiven Moti’s selfishness for the sake of his family.

“Saudaagar” was directed by Sudhendu Roy who was a art director, production designer who later on became a director with Rajshri Production’s “Uphaar” (1971). He was associated with Bimal Roy from 1958/9 in movies like “Madhumati” “Sujata” etc and was active in Bollywood till 1999. His work could be seen in Subhash Ghai’s “Karz” Karma” etc, Yash Chopra’s “Silsila” “Chandni” etc and right on till “Vijeta” (1996; not to be confused with the movie produced by Shashi Kapoor). His youngest daughter Sharmishta has followed in her father’s footsteps.

Coming back to “Saudaagar”, it was based on the Bengali story “Ras” by Narendranath Mitra and was produced by Tarachand Barjatya’s Rajshri Pictures. Ravindra Jain was the writer and composer of its songs. If I am not wrong this was his first Hindi movie. He was born in Aligarh to a homemaker mother and Sanskrit pandit father. He was sent for training in music by his father who recognized his talent very early and he started singing bhajans at temples when he was young.

We have been entertained by his songs in Chor Machaye Shor, Geet Gata Chal and numerous other movies. In this post from “Saudaagar” Atulji has made an interesting observation:- Ravindra Jain made a mark for himself with songs sung by singers other that the legends who were active then. But of course he had Asha, Lata, Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Manna Dey singing a song each for him in this movie. Todays’ song is in Mohd Rafi’s vocals, a very soft song typical Rafi Magic.

This movie had seven songs of which 5 are there on the blog as under

Song Posted on
Har haseen cheez ka main talabgaar hoon 4 April 2009
Sajna hai mujhe sajna ke liye 15 april 2009
Tera mera saath rahe 17 april 2009
Door hai kinaara 18 april 2009
Champa nahin chameli nahin 4 april 2019

Another interesting thing about this movies journey on the blog is it made its debut in April of 2009. We had four songs from that movie in that month. And the next post from the movie happened after a ten year gap in 2019 under the Blog Ten Year Challenge.

Remembering Ravindra Jain today on his anniversary, it is five years since he left this mortal world, but he will be immortal because of his work.
