Total upto 1990 1798 movies 3712 5009 3300 1391 206 112

It can be seen from the table of 1991 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 56 songs in 15 movies released in 1991. It was a good recovery from 1990, hen she got to sing just 12 songs in 9 movies.

By end of 1991, Lata Mangeshkar had just crossed 5000 songs as a playback singer. Out of these 5009 songs, solo songs added up to exactly 3300 songs.

5 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1991 have been covered in the blog. That leaves us with 52 songs from 16 movies of 1991 that are yet to be covered.

Alphabetically “100 days”(1991) is the first movie of 1991 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“100 days”(1991) was produced by Jay Mehta Mehta and directed by Partho Ghosh for Jay Vijay Enterprises, Bombay. The movie had Madhuri Dixit, Jackie Shroff, Javed Jaffery, Sabeeha(special appearance), Laxmikant Berde, Kunika Sadanand, Moon Moon Sen, Ajit Vachani, Jay Kalgutkar (introducing) ,Vijay Arora, Chunnu Mehra, Harbans Darshan.M.Arora, Prem Sagar, Sunita, Yusuf. They were supported by Shashikiran, Neelam Mehra, Shivaji Satam, Mahaveer Shah, Raja Duggal, Kanti Karan, Ramakant Burman, Anthony Andrade etc.

This movie was a remake of a remake of a foreign movie. The original Italian movie “Sette Note In Nero” (1977) served as the inspiration for Tamil film “Nooravathu Naal” (1984). Its suceess led into it being dubbed into Telugu as “Nurava Roju” (1984) and remade into Malayalam as “Aayiram Kannukal” (1986)

“100 days”(1991) had six songs in it. Voice of Lata Mangeshkar song was present in five of these songs. One song (non Lata Mangeshkar song) has been covered so far. It means that the remaining five songs from the movie are all Lata Mangeshkar songs.

Here is one of those songs.

This song is a dance song of the kind that was very popular those days. It is sung by Amit Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and female chorus. The song is picturised as a dance song on Javed Jafrey, Madhuri Dixit and others. Jackie Shroff and Ajit Vachaani are also seen in the picturisation.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 131 # Qawwalis – 9
——————————————-—–—————-——

Welcome all to another post presenting a song from the ‘decade of seventies-1971-1980’. The years when I was growing, and as a ‘child’ I have many memories and nostalgia especially related with the only popular entertainment medium available those days i.e., ‘Hindi Cinema’, ‘Radio’ and ‘Hindi Film Music’.

Today I am once again taking you to back to the ‘seventies’. Today we will listen to a ‘qawwali’ composed by Raam Laxman. His first on the blog in this category. Today’s song in not a ‘pure’ ‘qawwali’ but can be termed a ‘fusion-qawwali’ if I am not wrong. Today’s song can also remind readers of the famous ‘raaz ki baat kah doon to’ from the movie ‘Dharma-1973’.

Well, the today’s song or ‘qawwali’ is from the movie ‘Agent Vinod-1977’.

‘Agent Vinod-1977’ was directed by Deepak Bahri for ‘Sargam Pictures Pvt. Ltd., Bombay’.
It had Mahendra Sandhu, Asha Sachdev, Rehana Sultana, Iftekhar, Pinchoo Kapoor, Nazir Hussain, Ravindra Kapoor, K.N. Singh, V. Gopal, Vishwa Mehra, Viju Khote, Rajan Kapoor, Sunder, Bhagwan, Sharat Saksena, Kamal Deep, Master Romi, Shail Chaturvedi, Ranvir Raj, Gurbachan, Brujendra Mohan, Jagdeep, Helen, Jayshree T., Leena Das, Sheetal, Asha Potdar, Geeta Khanna, Shobhna Shah and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 23.07.1977.

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie with my Father, I had forgotten about this movie except its one song ‘Lovelina aa gaya main’. And later on, when I started my music collection, I was always looking for this movies’ song. The other thing that had made to my ‘impressionable mind’ was its dashing hero Mahendra Sandhu. However, I do not remember if I watched his other movies too (they are not so many I think).
But like many other stars from the ‘seventies’, I always remember Mahendra Sandhu’s name whenever movies or related stories about movies were discussed among friends or in the family with elders.

This movie had six songs which were penned by Ravindra Rawal and composed to music by Raam-Laxman.

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

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Zu zu … main jhonka matwaala Kishore Kumar, chorus
02 Lovelina main aa gaya Asha Bhonsle, Shailendra Singh 21.10.2013
03 Band kamre mein ek ladki akeli Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Sandhu
04 Mehfil mein aaye ho aao muqaabil Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey Being discussed today
05 Yaara dildaara, tera ye ishaara Usha Mangeshkar, Dilraj Kaur
06 Ham to nikle ram bharose Mahendra Kapoor, Jaspal Singh, chorus

We can see that as many as nine singers were used for the six songs in this movie. This easily give us hint about the variety of the songs this movie had.

Only one song from this movie has been posted on the blog on 21.10.2013. Around the same time, I had noted the today’s song which is being presented today.

Today’s song happens in a party and is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey. On screen it is Leena Das and Mahendra Sandhu lip-syncing in the voices of Asha Bhonsle and Manna Dey respectively.
Also seen in the picturization is Asha Sachdev who accompanies Mahendra Sandhu in the party which I guess is hosted by Pinchoo Kapoor who seems to have planned to trap Mahendra Sandhu – a secret agent. And for this purpose, Leena Das sings the song to woo Mahendra Sandhu. Mahendra Sandhu who is already aware of their intentions joins the song. Not just that , he even cautions them ‘hamse na uljho aye jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge,
pehchaan jaaoge, phir maan jaaoge’ 😊

I hope readers will like today’s song as much as I do. 😊

let us now enjoy today’s song …

Song-Mehfil mein aaye ho aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge (Agent Vinod)(1977) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Manna Dey, Lyrics-Ravindra Rawal, MD-Ram Laxman

Lyrics

Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
Aa aa aa
aa aa aa
Jo roshani hai
aaftaab chaand taaron mein
Jo dilkashi hai
chaman ke haseen nazaaron mein
Mere shabaab mein
aise samaa gaye ae donon
Ke jaise pyaar ke nagme
jawaan bahaaron mein

Mehfil mein aaye ho
Aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge
Pehchaan jaayenge
Phir maan jaayenge
Mehfil mein aaye ho
Aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge
Pehchaan jaayenge
Phir maan jaayenge

Aji hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

Surkh zanjeer nazar teer
Adaayein khanjar
Hain tabassum mein bijliyaan
Mera shabaab kehar
Aa aa
Inmein uljhaana mujhe
Koi aasaan nahin
Maut ka darr ho jise
Main wo naadaan nahin
Kabhi nishaana
Kabhi waar chook jaata hai
Mera qaatil har ek baar
Jhhuk jaata hai
Iss ghadi bhi hoon nishaane pe
Waar kar jaao
Ya meri maut ka phir aitbaar kar jaao

Hmm bahut dekhe
Haan
Hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

Waqt ke saath main har rang mein
Dhal saktaa hoon
Zidd pe aaoon to rukh hawaa ka
Badal saktaa hoon

Josh mein yoon naa machal
Naaz itna bhi naa kar
Tujhko behkaa gayi hai
Ye jawaani ki lehar
Ye mera kaam thha
Aagaah tujhe kar dena
Koi mushkil nahin
Gumraah tujhe kar dena
zulfein kar doon jo pareshaan to
Aise ghir jaao
Inn andheron mein
Umr bhar bhatakte reh jaao
Achha
Hmm
Mehfil mein aaye ho
Aao muqaabil jaan jaayenge
Pehchaan jaayenge
Phir maan jaayenge

Jahaan mein dekhe hi nahin hai
Toone zindaa dil

Tu bhi samjhaa nahin nadaan
Adaayein qaatil
Aa aa
Aaj maukaa hai milaa

Phir na karnaa tu gilaa
Main hoon tayyar khadaa
Jhoothi zidd pe hai adaa
Jaane kyon teri jawaani pe
Reham aata hai
Haath aaya shikaar bhi
Koi ganwaata hai

Nainon se teer chale
Haan
Meri aahon se chale

Neechi nazron ki hayaa
Khaali ye waar gayaa
Tabassum ki ye bijlee
Naa meri jaan nikli
Ye meri shokh adaa
Kuchh asar hi naa hua
Dekh meri angdaayee
Ye bhi mujh tak na aayi

Mere liye koi nayaa sitam
Ijaad karo
Ya jo jawaab diya hai maine
Use yaad karo
Kyon yaad aaya ke nahin

Aji hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

Hamse na uljho
Ae jaan e mehfil jaan jaaoge
Pehchaan jaaoge
Phir maan jaaoge

Hullo Atuldom

“100 Days” (1991) was produced by Jay Mehta (son of producer Pranlal Mehta), directed by Partho Ghosh. This was a first for both the producer and director. It starred Madhuri Dixit- Moon Moon Sen- Jackie Shroff- Javed Jaffrey- Laxmikant Berde – Sabeeha (daughter of yesteryear actress Ameeta of “Tumsa Nahin Dekha” fame) and a few others. It was a remake of a Tamil hit, a crime thriller with a twist. Madhuri played Moon Moon’s sister and Javed Jaffrey’s college friend. Jackie played a rich man and Laxmikant Berde his secretary.

Usually I like to give the synopsis of the movie with the song but not today. It will take away the fun of seeing the movie, just in case any follower of the blog feels like having a dekho of the movie, anytime. I have seen it in both languages and have loved it. Specially the climax and the various emotions that run through the movie. There is high drama, comedy, romance and a few entertaining songs. Partho Ghosh had an able cinematographer in the (late) Arvind Laad and the frames in the suspense scenes are well composed.

The music for the movie was by Vijay Patil better known as Raam Laxman. I remember that our in-house encyclopedia has mentioned somewhere on the blog that Raam -Laxman were brothers who were signed up for the 1977 movie ‘Agent Vinod’. Unfortunately, Raam the older brother passed away before the release of ‘Agent Vinod’ in 1976. But Vijay Patil continued his journey in the industry as Raam -Laxman and was very successful in the ’90s. He later changed his name to Raamlaxman post ‘Maine Pyar Kiya’.

“100 Days” had songs written by Dilip K Tahir, Dev Kohli and Ravinder Rawal. the singers used were Lata Mangeshkar, Alka Yagnik, S.P. Balasubramaniam, and Amit Kumar. Choreographers were Suresh Bhatt, Chinni Prakash, and Partho Ghosh himself. There are two songs that were filmed on the dancing duo Javed Jaffery and Madhuri of which one was a stage song.

Today we are not having the stage song but the other one, which is essentially keeping with the spirit of today i.e. April Fool’s day or All Fools day. Since morning there have been messages which are supposedly giving insight into why this day is celebrated and the last line of that message says, and I quote: “He used to read all fake stories, like you are doing now. It’s great idea fooling you”. Normally people play harmless pranks on their friends and dear ones on this day and I read somewhere that this is, generally, only till noon.

This is what I found on wikipedia:- “Some writers suggest that April Fools’ originated because in the Middle Ages, New Year’s Day was celebrated on March 25 in most European towns, with a holiday that in some areas of France, specifically, ended on April 1, and those who celebrated New Year’s Eve on January 1 made fun of those who celebrated on other dates by the invention of April Fools’ Day. The use of January 1 as New Year’s Day became common in France only in the mid-16th century, and that date was not adopted officially until 1564, by the Edict of Roussillon”.

Before getting on to the song I would like to congratulate Atulji, Sudhirji and all his followers and contributors and commentors on the blog’s 16300th post. Even if the blog is moving as per the movement of the moon, we are reaching centuries at a constant pace.

Here is the song in Alka Yagnik and Amit Kumar’s voices Sabeeha is in Javed’s team in playing pranks on Madhuri though they are all close friends. This song is written by Ravinder Rawal.

I would like to point out a few things in this song:-
(1) Javed jaffery is holding a small potli in his hand at the start of the song, akin to what Gabbar Singh had in ‘Sholay’.
(2) Madhuri has a step where she is shown mixing tambaaku (tobacco) like Gabbar Singh (of course).
These are the reasons why the song has stayed with me in all these years.

Remembering Kishore Kumar on his 91st Birth Anniversary :

teri gali main aata sanam
naghma wafa ka gaata sanam
tujhse suna na jaata sanam
phir aa jidhar aaya hoon magar
ye kehne main deewaana
khatm bas aaj ye wehshat hogi
aaj rusva teri galiyon mein muhabbat hogi
mere mehboob

Abhas Kumar Ganguly (born 4 August 1929 – 13 October 1987), became the famed Kishore Kumar of Hindi film world. Being a Bengali but born and brought up in hindi heartland and settling down to work in Bombay film industry to follow the footsteps of big brother, must have helped form a cosmopolitan outlook in his attitudes. I have just read the Wikipedia page on Kishore Kumar and found it enlightening in many ways. Some of the eccentric behavior described in the page, are funny and not so funny at the same time.

Reading the detailed page has confirmed many of my conceptions about Kishore Kumar. Chief among them being the fact that S. D. Burman, had a great role to play in shaping him as a super playback singer. For a long time through 50’s and 60’s it is apparent that he only ever gave playback for Dev Anand. He was making films, acting as hero and character roles, singing for himself, composing songs for his own films etc. etc. 50’s and 60’s were the most productive decades for Dev Anand, but he was singing songs on screen with the total range of singers, Rafi, Kishore, Hemant Kumar, Talat Mehmood and even Mukesh. If Manna De also sang for Dev Anand during this time, I don’t know off hand. Even in Navketan films, the songs were divided among Rafi and Kishore, a few were by Hemant Kumar too early on. So it is understandable that 70’s and early 80’s is Kishore Kumar’s most productive period, after he was convinced by RDB to seriously concentrate on playback singing. Even than he was reportedly choosy about the actors for whom he sang.

Kishore Kumar also has a distinction of being the singing star and having enjoyed playback by Rafi Sahab. Only other singer to have this distinction is G. M. Durrani.

Some of the sad melancholy songs of Kishore Kumar are my favourite sad songs which I have listed in another post. The above quoted song “mere Mehboobqayamathogi” is one such song, the lyrics of which were written in a book of songs I used to keep in my childhood.

I had short listed the solo from “Sanam Teri Qasam” – Sheeshe ke gharon mein dekho to patthar dil wale baste hain”, but I found that song a bit depressing. So I shifted to another happy sounding song.

I am presenting this peppy, feel good song from the film “Bezubaan”(1982). It’s a party song, where Shashi Kapoor is singing in praise of his wife Reena Roy and counting his blessings. It is a solo song by Kishore Kumar, witten by Ravindra Rawal and composers are Raam-Laxman. The entire cast of the film is present in this gathering. The party is moving from indoors to outdoors and indoors again while Shashi Kapoor is so shaky and imbalanced with happiness keeps falling down and dropping things 🙂 🙂 . The details of the film are available on imdb site. The songs were quite good in this film especially the song “harek jeewan hai ek kahaani par ye sachchayi sab ne na jaani”, story- telling solo by Lata Mangeshkar.

Song-Tere jaisa koi khoobsoorat nahin (Bezubaan)(1982) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Ravindra Rawal, MD-Raam-Laxman

Lyrics(As per audio)

———————————

Part I (Happy version)

———————————

Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin
Ye mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Sooraj chaand taare gagan ke
Jaise raushni dene chamke
Yoon hi teri bindiya ke dam se
Meri duniya din raat damke
Sooraj chaand taare gagan ke
Jaise roshni dene chamke
Yunhi teri bindiya ke dam se
Meri duniya din raat damke
Tere hansne se achcha mahurat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Main bhi aaj yeh maanta hoon
Kal tak jo yeh duniyaa thhi kehti
Jag mein har safal aadmi ke
Peechhe ek aurat hai rehti
Main bhi aaj yeh maanta hoon
Kal tak jo yeh duniyaa thhi kehti
Jag mein har safal aadmi ke
Peechhe ek aurat hai rehti
Munh chhupaane ki koyi zaroorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Kitna mujhe tujhpe yaqeen hai
Hamdam tujhe kehna hai mushkil
Itna tujhe kehta hoon bas main
Tujh bin zinda rehna hai mushkil
Kitna mujhe tujh pe yaqeen hai
Hamdam tujhe kehna hai mushkil
Itna tujhe kehta hoon bas main
Tujh bin zinda rehna hai mushkil
Nainon mein bin tere koyi moorat nahin
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin
Ye mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
mera chhota sa jahaan
Aisa swarg hai kahaan
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

———————————

Part II (Sad version)

———————————

Itna mujhe tujh pe yaqeen hai
Hamdam tujhe kehna hai mushkil
Itna tujhe kahta hoon bas main
Tujh bin zinda rehna hai mushkil
Tere jaisa koyi khoobsoorat nahin
Mere jaisa koyi khushqismat nahin

Hullo Atuldom

31st July, was that date in the monsoon of 1980, when the favourite singer of an entire generation left this world without any warning. There are anecdotes about the happenings of that date which keep surfacing now and then. We have heard that he was recording for Laxmikant -Pyarelal that day, a duet with Lata Mangeshkar, and was asked to stay back to record a songlet (if there is such a word) which was to play at the end of the movie and the words of that:

Tere aane ki aas hai dost
shaam phir kyun udhaas hai dost
mehki mehki phiza yeh kehti hain
tu kahin aas paas hai dost
tu kahin aas paas hain dost

seem like written for remembering this legend called Mohammad Rafi.

There is not a single day when a song played over the air-waves or on TV don’t remind us of his wonderful voice. There is not a single day when we don’t hum or sing a song that was a classic because he had sung it. There may be many who try to sing like him but God made only one Mohammad Rafi. Has anyone tried singing “kya hua tera waada, woh kasam woh iraada” in one breath, it is not easy. But when we hear Rafisaab render it, it feels like cakewalk. I will not even throw a challenge to sing “naache mann mora magan dhikna dhik dhik”. But I will definitely ask a Rafi clone to sing “yahoo, chahe koi mujhe junglee kahe” and follow it up with “champi tel maalish”. Both are fun songs abut they need a full-throated voice and range from lower to higher notes. I am not even going to list his soulful songs here; that would be really long and every single one as much on my personal playlist as the ones that I have mentioned here.

I would love to know how he modulated his voice to suit the on-screen actor. He was good for a Mehmood and Rajendra Kumar and sounded different in the same film. He sang for Guru Dutt and Johnny Walker and we could visualize the difference in the characters. No more examples as I have always said, I am not qualified or knowledgeable enough to comment or write about legends.

But I will definitely quote an Amitabh Bachchan song which said:

na phankaar tujh sa tere baad aaya, Mohammad Rafi tu bahut yaad aaya

Getting directly to today’s song. As

rasm e duniyaa bhi hai
maukaa bhi hai
dastoor bhi hai

I will just give the details of the song which is from the 1981 release “Ham Se Badhkar Kaun”. We have thus far, only one song from this movie which is this one. That means we haven’t visited this movie in the last nine years. Atulji has given the gist of this movie in that post in a single line- ‘run of the mill’. I will just add that it also relied on the lost-and-found theme. Today’s duet is Asha Bhonsle with Mohd.Rafi (duet number 533) performed on-screen by Mithun, Ranjeeta, Bhagwan Dada and chorus.

Song-Dekho logon ye kaisa zamaana (Ham Se Badhkar Kaun)(1981) Singers-Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Ravindra Rawal, MD-Ram Laxman
Chorus

Lyrics

Oh Tony,
Please leave me alone
I hate you

Oh no dear Tina
I love you

dekho logon
yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaake bane woh begaana aa
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaake bane woh begaana
koi roothhe dilbar ko manaana
usse jaakar samhjaana

okay
goriye
aisa chaahne waala toh
milta kismat waalon ko

shut up
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaake bane woh begaana
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaake bane wog begaana

iss ki kya sunte ho
yeh deewaana hai

aisa kya
bhanwara hai yeh mat samjho
parwaana hai

haye tauba
iss ki suno na yaaron
ye jhooth hai saraasar
is bewafa ko dekho
pehchhaan lo baraabar

main sachh kehta hoon kasam khaa kar
goriye aashiq ko apne sataao na
ab toh maan jaao na

dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
aise jhoothon se daaman bachaana aa
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
aise jhoothon se daaman bachaana
inki har baat bahaana
dhokhe mein na aa jaana

arre yeh
lagta bhola bhala hai
lekin dil ka kaala hai

oh no
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaa ke bane woh begaana
dekho logon yeh kaisa zamana
dil churaake bane wo begaana

meri bala se chaahe na maano ae jaanaa
arre ja ja ja a
yeh dil toh hai aur kisi ka deewaana
kya kya kya
jaane tamanna meri
sun lo tumse behtar hai
dil pyaar ka khazaana
maasoomiyat zewar hai
yeh ab sab kya chakkar hai
arre woh hamse badhkar kaun hai
dekhoon ik jhalak toh main

dekho logon yeh kaisa zamaana
dil churaake chala woh deewaana
haa aa dekho logon yeh kaisa zamana
dil churaake chala woh deewaana
koi roothhe dilbar ko manaana
usse jaakar samhjaana

yaaron inka puraana taanka hai
khaayaa humne jhaansa hai
la laaa
la la la la la la laaa
la laaa
la la la la laaa
la laaa
la la la la la la laaa

26th October is an important date for our blog. It has 2 birthdays. One is our very own Rajababu another is the female actor of the 90s Raveena Tandon. For me it is important as on this day my lil sister was born all those years ago. (I still feel of my sisters as little sisters even though the eldest child of my younger sis is in her first year of college this year, and the twins of my other sister are in class 4).

Today 21st October is the birthday of the dancing diva HELEN. And it is not possible to let it pass by without a song to show our love for her.

But that is the most difficult task for us atulites. Why? Because we have covered so many of her famous songs that one has to sit down with pen and paper to make a list of those songs that are left. In that respect I envy the various radio channels and TV programmes which will show the same set of songs on every occasion. I suspect that they don’t know the existence of the lesser known songs.

“Ham Se Badhkar Kaun” (1981) was a run of the mill kind of a movie that are produced every year and which are then soon forgotten after a few weeks.

As far as I was concerned, I actually forgot all about this movie soon after I watched it.
