Pancham’s Music – Eighties (1981-1990) – 8 (1988)

In today’s post we move on to Pancham’s music in 1988.

In the previous posts under this series we have already seen how the number of movies where music was composed by RD Burman was on a ‘reducing’ trend since 1986, as compared to the previous years from 1981 to 1985. Here is the list of movies from the year 1988 where music for these movies was composed by him.

Today I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Rama O Rama’. I was aware of the title song of this movie since long as this song was featured in one of the albums of songs sung by Amit Kumar. Also I did like this song very much.

‘Rama O Rama’ was directed by Mirza Brothers for Mirza Brothers Films Pvt Ltd’. It had Raj Babbar, Kimi Katkar, and debutant Aasif. The cast also included Pran, Raza Murad, Kiran Kumar, and Gulshan Grover. Supporting cast of this movie included Shammi, Shiva, Vishakha, Prabha Mathur, Shaila Khan, Murari Sharma, Rohit, Sridhar, Master Imran, Master Lovely, Baby Aisha, Master Javed, and others.

The story and screenplay of this movie was written by Mirza Brothers. And editing of this movie was done by Vijay Pande.

The film has 6 songs. Lyrics for the songs in this movie are written by Anand Bakshi and Usman Aarif. Music is composed by RD Burman. Asha Bhonsle, Amit Kumar, Mohd Aziz, Jayshree Shivram, Iqbal Siddiqui gave their voices to the songs in this movie.

This movie included the following sound tracks,

05 Rama O Rama Anand Bakshi Amit Kumar, Jayshree Shivram
06 Ae Haseen Naazneen Anand Bakshi Mohd Aziz

Today’s song is sung by Amit Kumar and Jayshree Shivram. On screen the male version is lip-synced by debutant Aasif. I am unable to identify the actress lip-syncing the female version on screen.

This was Amit Kumar’s first recording after the death of Kishore Kumar (he has mentioned about this in an interview). We can see the difference in his voice in singing of this song. He does sound like Pancham Da in the alaap “Raama O Raama”. This is a poignant song we can see how he has poured his heart in this song.

I have not watched this movie. But as mentioned above I only remember the today’s song from this movie since long or since 1988/89 I think. Yesterday was the eighty-third birth anniversary of musical genius RD Burman. Let us listen to his this poignant composition. I am sure you will like this composition very much.

With this post the movie ‘Rama O Rama’ makes its debut on the blog.

5092 Post No. : 17021

Today 27th June, 2022 is the eighty-third birth anniversary of Rahul Dev Burman. On our blog we already have few posts coming on this occasion. However, I was looking for a song written by Majrooh Sultanpuri who had a long association with RD Burman. Also, I wish that I should share a song sung by Kishore Kumar because the songs I shared for today didn’t have any Kishore Kumar songs.

So, here I am presenting a song from the 1980 movie ‘Aanchal’. And incidentally this happens to be a song picturized on Rajesh Khanna. I think this is a ‘bonus’ song for today’s celebration.

‘Aanchal’ was directed by Anil Ganguly for Bemisal Films Pvt Ltd. It was produced by Prem Lalwani and Mohan Lalwani. It had Rajesh Khanna, Rakhee Gulzar, Rekha, Prem Chopra, and Amol Palekar, with Leela Mishra, Shammi, Dinesh Hingoo, Ranjana Sachdev, Birbal, Sarita Devi, Asit Sen, Swapan Guha, Amol Sen, Deepak, Master Ravi, Lekha Chauhan, Master Sandeep, Suresh Desai, Saukat Bharti, Jankidas, Rajkishore, Viju Khote, and others. Abhi Bhattacharya had a friendly appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Tara Shankar Bandopadhya, and dialogues were written by Ehsan Rizvi. Screenplay of this movie was written by Sachin Bhowmick. Editing of this movie was done by Waman Bhonsle and Gurudutt Shirali. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.09.1980.

This movie has six songs. Lyrics for the songs in this movie are written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music is composed by RD Burman. Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, and Swapan Chakravarty had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

One song from this movie “Paise Ka Kaajal Daike Na Lo Hamri Jaan has already been discussed on the blog on 18.07.2018. This post was presented by our beloved Raja Saab and here is a brief about this movie he had mentioned in his write-up.

The film stars Kaka, Rekha, Raakhee, Amol Palekar and Prem Chopra. It’s a village-based story, where Kaka and Amol Palekar are brothers, with Raakhee married to Amol Palekar. Since Kaka is her husband’s younger brother, Raakhee treats him with great affection. Kaka too has highest regard for his bhabhi. Prem Chopra, who has a score to settle with Amol Palekar, plays mischief, creating misunderstanding in his mind about the relationship between Raakhee and Kaka. Also, doing the same to Rekha, who is in love with Kaka.

To be honest, the film picks up only in the second half – the first half is rather slow. But maybe it is a build-up to show the relationships between the characters. I was rather keen for the film to get on with the plot.

We will be discussing the details about the other songs in this movie in the future posts on the blog. Regarding the songs from this movie, I think “Bas Meri Jaan Bas. . . Maan Le Meri Baat”, “Paise Ka Kaajal Daike Na Lo Hamri Jaan“, and “Bhor Bhaye Panchhi” were well known songs from this movie. Though the overall musical score is good and other songs from this movie also needs to be listened, like the song today.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and on screen it is Rajesh Khanna performing on this song with other artistes also seen in the picturization of this song. As mentioned above lyrics are by Majrooh Sultanpuri and music is composed by RD Burman.

Let us listen to and enjoy the today’s song now …

Hullo Atuldom

3rd Sunday of June is celebrated as Father’s Day and yesterday (19th June) was Father’s Day this year. The day is meant to honor Fatherhood and Paternal Bonds as well as the influence of fathers in society. In the USA, father’s day was founded by Sonora Smart Dodd, and celebrated on the third Sunday of June, for the first time, in 1910. The day is held across the world on various dates and different regions have their own traditions of honoring Fatherhood.

Here I would like to mention that Sonora Smart Dodd was the daughter of American Civil War veteran William Jackson Smart whom she held in very high esteem. Along with her father, she shared the raising of her five siblings, after the death of her mother. While hearing a church sermon about the newly recognized Mother’s Day, Sonora felt strongly that fatherhood needed recognition as well and suggested June 5th (her own fathers’ birthday) as a possible date for father’s day. The Ministerial Alliance of the Spokane County (the county where they lived) chose the third Sunday instead.

That is how Father’s Day came about to be on third Sunday of June and complements similar celebrations honoring family members such as Mother’s Day, Siblings’ Day and Grandparents’ Day.

Today we shall have a Father-Son song and continue with the celebration of Father’s Day here on our blog. We have a song from the film ‘Aamne Saamne’ (1982). The star cast of the film is Mithun Chakravarthy, Bindiya Goswami, Aarti Gupta, Tarun Ghosh, Dinesh Thakur, Leela Mishra, Kamal Kapoor etc. The film was released in January 1982 – 40 years already, wow!!! (Now I realize why I didn’t get to see it in the cinema hall back then. I was in the middle of preparing for my class 10 boards).

‘Aamne Saamne’ (not to be confused with the 1967 film with the same name, starring Sharmila Tagore and Shashi Kapoor, which has already been Yippeee’d on the blog) was produced by Shakti Samanta and directed by his son Ashim Samanta. Madan Joshi was the dialogue writer, KK Shukla wrote the story and screenplay. The songs of this film were written by Anjaan and (our very own) Panchamda was the music director. Kishore Kumar, Amit Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, RD Burman were the playback singers used. I think it is the voice of Vanita Mishra for the young boy in today’s song in duet with Panchamda for Mithun. This song may remind some people of “Papa Ko Mummy Se Pyaar Hai” from film ‘Andaz’ (1971).

The movie had a plot similar to the Rajesh Khanna starrer ‘Sachcha Jhootha’ (1970). Mithun has a double role where the simpleton Gopi from the village is spotted by Johnny, who is a stage-singer by day and a criminal by night. Johnny trains Gopi to take his place on stage so that he has an alibi if caught by the cops – age old formula, I am sure repeated later in ‘Dhoom 3’ (2013). Then there is a tiny angle of a child, who is on the lookout for his father, and has a photo of his parents to help him. Madhu Malhotra is the mother in the photo. This was Ashim Samanta’s debut as director, and Aarti Gupta’s first lead role.

With today’s post we are wishing (rather belatedly) Mithun Chakravarthy on turning 72 on 16th. May he continue to be busy with whatever his heart is after. May we get to see more of him.

The agenda closer to home of this post is to wish the Father of this blog, our very own fearless leader- Atul ji on his birthday today. Last year we had a wonderful post with the song “Main Nikla O Gaddi Le Ke” by Avinash ji on the same date. In that post Avinash ji has called the Blog a ‘gaddi’ which is driven by ‘engine’ Atul ji and all of team members and followers ‘wagons’ of this BANDWAGON. I fully endorse his thoughts.

Thanking Atul ji for taking us along with him on this grand journey of music and knowledge sharing. Thanking him also for giving us this platform and encouraging novices like me into writing out our thoughts. As always, I wish he gets more time with his family, pets, friends, music and the blog.

With this song, ‘Aamne Saamne’ (1982) makes its debut on the blog.

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 25

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This discovery of a repeat song will have to be termed as Mother of All Repeat Songs. And just in case, before you start wondering whether poor dear me has decided to take a step off the deep end, let me explain.

Ostensibly searching for something else totally disconnected with repeat songs in Hindi films, I chanced to read this caption on a YouTube link. The face in the thumbnail image is neither Bharat Bhushan or Shashi Kapoor. And so, intrigued as I was, I clicked on the thumbnail with the face of R Madhavan, to play this song whose caption was sounding so very familiar. It turns out, yes, it is a repeat song – a repeat of the very endearing and a must-have favorite from the 1969 film ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’. This signature track has been the theme of many an amorous message of love for the connoisseurs of the Hindi film music.

Ah, but the story of my discovery had just started. I checked out the name of the film. Turns out it is ‘Dil Vil Pyaaar Vyaar’ from 2002. I track down the Wikipedia page of this film. I had not heard of this film earlier. The story line weaves around the romance lives of young friends. Seemed like a run-of-the-mill rom-com tales that abound the landscape of the Hindi film world. An immediate analogy that came to mind, from the era familiar to me, was ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’ of 1957. Similar theme, romance tales of three young friends.

Ah but what wonderful and divine music that film has. I will not dwell on the delightful music created by the legendary Madan Mohan – I am sure all readers and friends are already very much taken in by the songs of that film from 1957.

Getting back to ‘DVPV’ (‘Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar’), I was thinking – seems like the producer of this film did not have much imagination to engage song writers and MDs to create some fresh songs. So he chose to easy route to re-use this song.

But as I continued down the Wikipedia page, and reached the Soundtrack section, my eyes remained agape in wonder. The film has 13 songs listed. And (OK now, hold your breath) – ALL, I repeat ALL songs are repeats of earlier hit songs of the 60s to 80s time period. Looking closey at the list, the second realization, and a big one, hit home. ALL the thirteen tracks are creations of RD Burman. Now this discovery surely something great and different.

A little more research and I am able to locate more information online. The producer of this film is a diehard fan of RD Burman and the music created by him. And this film ‘DVPV’ has been created as a tribute for his favorite MD. So, a story and a screenplay was conjured and 13 of RDB’s famous hits have been woven into it.

The producer of this film is Vivek Vaswani. As it turns out, he himself is the author of the story line of this film. The screenplay has been adapted from the story by Sujit Sen.

Of course the credits for the song will remain with the original creators. But for this film, the music for the songs has been re-arranged and re-recorded by Babloo Chakravorty. So all songs in this film are recorded in different voices.

Ah yes, in case you are wondering – yes, I plan to bring on board all the thirteen songs of this film, in good time. Quite a bonanza here for this series.

This wonderful song from ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’ has been re-recorded in the voice of Hariharan. On screen, it is performed by R Madhvan. I am sure all are familiar with this new name. My introduction to Madhavan has been through the 2009 hit film ‘3 Idiots’. I will try to say more about this film and its performers, in subsequent episodes, as I venture to cover all the songs of this film.

Other actors we see in this clip are Asrani and Namrata Shirodkar. The wonders that a song can do has not changed across the decades that Hindi films have been created, exhibited and watched. It has only become better, more imaginative and more incredulous. In the very early days of this blog itself, Atul ji had come to a conclusion, and he has so documented it in many a write up. That a situation in Hindi films takes about 3 minutes or so to be transformed. All it takes is a song. The song starts in a particular mood, with a particular expectation, and by the time the song ends, the desired mood and desired outcome is achieved and the expectations realized. In many earlier such discussions, we have seen quite wondrous and amazing things happen during the duration of a song.

With this song, things are no different. Rather, the stretch on the gullibility of comprehension is a bit too much. Madhavan is on a stage, participating in a music competition. Things to be noted about the setting. The stage where the performance happens is designed like a music CD. And the effect is complete with the singer handling a very old fashioned standing microphone. The antics Madhavan attempts with this mike takes us even further back to Elvis Presley performing live on stage, back in the 1950s.

His lady love, Namrata, is at the airport, already checked in for a flight that will take her thousands of miles away to another country, away from her beau. And voila. A ‘strategically’ placed TV screen within her view starts to telecast the music competition just as Madhavan is to present his song. The song starts. It is the replay of the famous aria – this one, from ‘Pyaar Ka Mausam’.

All it takes in one stanza for the lady love to make up her mind to abandon her plans to leave the country, and she decides to go back into the beckoning arms of her lover. The second stanza is even more wondrous. The lady exits from the airport, starts to drive to where the competition is in progress. And, another VOILA – this time in capital letters – she drives through the Bombay traffic, with all her memories about times spent with her lover replaying on the mind’s screen, reaches the location and is on stage with her lover, by the time the second stanza comes to a close. And yes, even has time for a change of attire. The applause by the audience is still in progress as she makes an entrance through a hazy and foggy doorway, with the director making utmost efforts to make it appear like a fairy descending through the clouds.

I remember having seen a cartoon long long back advising filmgoers to please leave their logic and reasoning outside the door, when entering a cinema hall to watch a Hindi film (or maybe any film for that matter).

So mission accomplished. In less than three minutes, from the verge of just starting to board her flight, the lady love makes it from the airport to the competition stage and into the arms of her lover.

Long be loved – the wondrous Hindi film song. Yes, all it takes is a song.

Song – Tum Bin, Jaaun Kahaan. . .  (Dil Vil Pyaar Vyaar) (2002) Singer – Hariharan, Lyrics – Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD – RD Burman
[Music rearranged by Babloo Chakravarty]

Lyricsa

tum bin jaaun kahan
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin

dekho mujhe sar se kadam tak
sirf pyaar hoon main
gale se lagaa lo ke tumhaara
bekaraar hoon main
tum kya jaano ke bhatakta fira
kis kis gali
tum ko chaah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa sanam
tumko chaah ke
tum bin

rah bhi sakoge tum kaise
ho ke mujhse judaa
hat jaayengi deewaaren
sun ke meri sadaa
aanaa hogaa tumhen mere liye
saathi meri
sooni raah ke
tum bin jaaun kahaan
ke duniyaa mein aake
kuchh na phir chaahaa kabhi
tumko chaah ke…
tum bin

तुम क्या जानो के भटकता फिरा
किस किस गली
तुमको चाह के
तुम बिन
जाऊँ कहाँ
के दुनिया में आ के
कुछ ना फिर
चाहा सनम
तुमको चाह के
तुम बिन

रह भी सकोगे तुम कैसे
हो के मुझ से जुदा
हट जाएंगी दीवारें
सुन के मेरी सदा
आना होगा तुम्हें मेरे लिए
साथी मेरी
सूनी राह के
तुम बिन
जाऊँ कहाँ
के दुनिया में आ के
कुछ ना फिर
चाहा सनम
तुमको चाह के
तुम बिन

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 9
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –- – –

Today 29th December’2021 is the seventy-nineth birth anniversary (29 December 1942 – 18 July 2012) of Rajesh Khanna, born as Jatin Khanna.

On this occasion we pay our tributes to him and listen a song from one of his movies.

In this ninth episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna- The Phenomenon’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies in the year 1982. In the year 1982 the following six movies of Rajesh Khanna were released (including ‘Disco Dancer’* where he had a friendly appearance).

S No Movie Title Director Passed by Censor Board
01 Ashaanti Umesh Mehra 01.05.1982
02 Dharam Kaantaa Sultan Ahmed 28.07.1982

06 Suraag** Dr Jagmohan Mundra 01.01.1982

(*Friendly Appearance, **Guest Appearance)

In the previous post in this series ‘Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 8’ we had discussed how Rajesh Khanna in the late seventies switched on to different roles exploring and introspecting himself and taking a new challenge for his ‘second innings’.

In the late seventies and early eighties, he has a string of successful movies viz. ‘Amardeep’ (1979), ’Thodi Si Bewafaai’ (1980), and critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose) (1980), ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980), and ‘Bandish’ (1980).

In 1981 he tasted more success with movies like ‘Dard’, ‘Dhanwan’, ‘Dil e Naadan’, ‘Qudrat’ and ‘Fifty-Fifty’.

‘Qudrat’ (1981) was a multi-starrer movie and had good success at the box-office. That saw Kaka putting more efforts to change his image and considering films in the ‘multi-starrer’ and ‘action’ genres, which he thought earlier was not his ‘cup of tea’. It can also be said that these two ‘genres’, where he was not doing films, were partly responsible for the failure of his earlier movies on the box-office.

In 1982 we had Kaka’s films like ‘Raaput’, ‘Ashaanti’, ‘Dharam Kaanta’ which were multi-starrer as well as action movies. He further continued doing such ‘multi-starrer-masaala’ films like ‘Paapi Pet Ka Sawaal Hai’, ‘Dharm Aur Qaanoon’, ‘Maqsad’, ‘Bewafaai’, ‘Awaam’, ‘Vijay’, etc. coming in the next few years.

Today’s song is from one of the above movies and that movie is ‘Ashaanti’. This song also beautifully catches the ‘spirit of team efforts’ instead of a ‘one-man-show’ and advocates ‘helping each other’ to get success.

‘Ashaanti’ is directed by Umesh Mehra for Eagle Films, Bombay, and is produced by Parvesh C. Mehra.

The movie has Rajesh Khanna, Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi, Shabana Azmi, Mithun Chakravarty, Kanwaljeet, Amrish Puri, Jeevan, Narendra Nath, Monty, Mac Mohan, Kishore Kapoor, Yusuf Khan, Ram Sethi, Nadira, Satyen Kappu, Bob Christo, Mohan Choti, Avtar Gill, Ajay Agrawal, Amir Jambra, Yusuf, Ganesh, and others. Prem Kishan and Ramesh Deo makes a special appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 01.05.1982.

This movie has five songs composed by RD Burman. Lyrics for all the five songs are penned by Anand Bakshi. Following is the list of songs this movie had.

That was all around forty years back now. And if we go back further ten years to the year 1972. That is around fifty years back from now, we have the following movies of Rajesh Khanna released in that year.

We can see all the above movies had great music too as usual for Kaka movies.

Coming back to the today’s song it is from the movie 1982 movie ‘Ashaanti’. As mentioned above Lyrics for all the songs are written by Anand Bakshi and music is composed by RD Burman.

In today’s song Rajesh Khanna is lip-syncing for the voice of Kishore Kumar, Mithun Chakravarty for Shailendra Singh, Kanwaljeet for Kishore Kumar and Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi and Shabana Azmi are lip-syncing for the voice of Asha Bhonsle.

We can see many others in the picturisation of this song.

Let us now enjoy this foot-tapping song now …

‘PANCHAM-RAFI’ Jodi’s Variety Songs – 5
———————————————————

Welcome all to today’s post which is coming after a long gap of more than two years. In this series we discussed song by ‘Pancham-Rafi’ jodi. This series was basically inspired by an article on the blog ‘Pancham and Only Pancham’ – and the title of the article is ‘Tribute to Rafi Sahab on 28th Death Anniversary‘, published on Rafi Sb’s twenty-eighth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ on 31.07.2008. This article lists out the ‘variety of songs by the genius -Pancham-Rafi’ jodi based on different ‘genres’ of music.

When I came across the above article I thought to share this list with readers on our blog too. So, when I started this series in ‘2015’ with this song – “Jaag Devta Naag Devta – nine out of the twenty songs listed in the article were already posted on the blog. After that, I shared three more songs viz. – “Raqqaasa Mera Naam, Ae Sahib Sabko Salaam“, “Maine Kab Chaaha Ke Dulha Banoonga” and “Maakhan Chor Nandkishore Manmohan Ghanshyam Re“. The remaining songs were shared by our team members from time to time, and all these twenty songs are on the blog now.

Readers can go through the list in the article mentioned above. As the songs in this list were already getting posted on the blog, I had in the post for the song “Maine Kab Chaaha Ke Dulha Banoonga” mentioned that I will include some more songs in this series, not on the basis of music-genres, but these ‘special songs’ are from the category of being ‘the only Rafi song in a movie where music was composed by RD Burman.

Today’s song is one such song and it is from the movie ‘Phir Wohi Raat’ (1980).

This film was directed by Danny Dengzongpa for Prithvi Pictures, Bombay. The star cast includes Rajesh Khanna, Kim (new discovery), Shashikala, AK Hangal, Suresh Oberoi, Lalita Pawar, Tamanna, Aruna Irani, Danny Dengzongpa, Om Shivpuri, Shobha Khote, Jagdeep, Mukri, Bhagwan, Mohan Choti, Birbal, Madhu Malhotra, Shashi Kiran, Manmauji, Prakash, Lalita Kumari, Brahm Bharadwaj, Ranjeet Sood, Jugnu, Chand Usmani, Moolchand, Gopal Saigal, Master Chirag and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.08.1980 with restricted viewing (Adults Only) certificate.

This movie had six songs, all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri and composed to music by RD Burman. Here is the list of the songs of this movie,

Today’s song, the only Rafi song, in this movie is lip-synced on screen by actor Jagdeep.

Today 29th March 2021 is eighty-second birth anniversary (born on 29.03.1939) of actor Jagdeep. He passed away last year on 08th July 2020. As a tribute to him we will listen and enjoy this entertaining song from this movie. The song is ‘joie-de-vivre’ where other than Jagdeep we can see Mohan Choti, Bhagwan, Mukri, Birbal, Gopal Saigal and others also performing with him.

Also wishing herewith is ‘Happy Holi’ to all. Though the song is not a ‘holi’ song but ‘holi’ celebrations can be enjoyed this year ‘in house’ only – with playing this song and ‘taking a jig’ on this vibrant Pancham composition.

Hullo Atuldom

There is a popular movie of the late ’70s, that has had a rather slow journey through the blog. With this post I hope to bring it to the YYIIPPEEEE station.

It began its journey on the blog with its most iconic song. A song that gave its singer -the legend Mohd. Rafi the National Award for best singer as well as that year’s Filmfare award. The song sort of put all doubting Thomas(es) in their place.

The post for the song “Kya Hua Tera Waada, Wo Qasam Wo Iraada“was the 2900th of the blog written by Santosh Ojha.

The next post on the song “Ye Ladka Haaye Allah Kaisa Hai Deewaana” by Rajaji spoke of his experience of how he had seen the movie in 1977 and gave a link to his own blog and what he had written there-in in 2008. (Cannot find that blog now )

The third and fourth songs from this movie came one-after-the other as part of Nahm ji’s series where she presented Rafi saab’s songs in alphabetical order:- “Chaand Mera Dil, Chaandni Ho Tum” for the song beginning with ‘C’ and “Hai Agar Dushman Dushman, Zamaana Gham Nahin” as the song beginning with ‘H’.

Then came this post – “Bachna Ae Haseeno, Lo Main Aa Gaya” – a highly educative post by our Sudhir ji on ‘How a song is born’.

The next came the song “Aa Dil Kya Mehfil Hai Tere Qadmon Mein, a post by yours truly exactly three years back. I had tried to express what I liked about the movie and its maker.

The post for one of the songs in the medley “Mil Gaya Humko Saathi Mil Gaya” was a surprise. It was by our in-house encyclopedia; a biographical write up from a person who is a store house of information.

The last post for this film, was for the song “Hum Ko Yaara Teri Yaari“, as a part of 10-year challenge 2010-2020.

So then these are the eight out of nine songs from ‘Ham Kisi se Kam Nahin’ (1977) that are present in our blog. We are having the ninth and final song today on the 18th remembrance day of its maker Nasir Hussain. This is the third song in the four song medley scene. It is sung by RD Burman, set to tune by RD Burman himself, and written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. It has Tariq lip-syncing on screen. The sequence comes to a close with an excellent music piece where we see the two males trying to beat each other in the dance competition which Rishi Kapoor wins as Tariq gives up when he sees Kajal Kiran and Rishi Kapoor together.

Ending this post with a thanks to Nasir Hussain for all the entertainment his films have provided to Hindi film fans.

Hullo Atuldom

The song with this post was very popular in the 70s. We can hear it occasionally even now on the AIR’s Vividh Bharati. It is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist with RD Burman as the music director.

‘Bhanwar’ (1976) was directed by Bhappie Sonie and had a cast headed by Ashok Kumar, Randhir Kapoor, Parveen Babi, Aruna Irani, Asrani, Ranjeet, Kamini Kaushal, Nadira, Madan Puri etc. Two songs from this movie are already posted on this blog.

We are having the third song today to remember Parveen Babi – today on her 71st birthday. This beautiful lady was born in Junagadh and had her schooling in Ahmedabad. She made her debut opposite Salim Durrani (‘Charitra’, 1973) but her first success was opposite Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Majboor’ (1974). She had a good run at the box office and co-starred with all the heroes of her time. Her career spanned around 15/16 years from 1973 to 1988 with one movie releasing rather late in 1991. She led a lonely life after she stopped acting and withdrew from public eye. She passed away on 20th Jan, 2005.

Thinking of the beautiful Parveen Babi today with this song

aaj sirf gaana gaayenge
aaj sirf gaana gaayenge

Memories that are pure gold – the mention of his name brings to mind a limited set of memories. Ah but these memories are pure gold.

Remembering Vijay Anand today, on his birth anniversary. He would have been 86 today.

Without any doubts, the best and the most remarkable sense of visualization of music. Not just thinking of films with Navketan – ‘Nau Do Gyaarah’ (1957), ‘Kaala Bazaar’ (1960), ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne’ (1963), ‘Guide’ (1965), ‘Jewel Thief’ (1967), ‘Johnny Mera Naam’ (1970) and more, his films outside of Navketan are also as memorable for their songs. ‘Teesri Manzil’ (1966) being the most popular and loved film for its songs, and their presentation. Of course, no one counters the wholesome effect of “O Haseena Zulfon Waali”. But then, see “O Mere Sona Re Sona Re Sona Re”. The superb performances in this song by both Shammi Kapoor and Asha Parekh are the handiwork of a most capable director, who knows how to bring out the maximum impact of everything that goes into presenting a song – the ambience, the words, the music, the facial expressions, the body language, crafting the merger of actions with music, the give and take between the two protagonists – everything brought together to convey this latent feeling in the heart, bringing it to the lips, and then expressing it with an un-tethered exuberance on the part of the lady, and a coy displeasure (to start with) on part of the gentleman. The end result – as Atul ji has often pointed out – after three stanzas, all is well and the lovers are seen walking hand in hand.

Take ‘Black Mail’ (1973) and the wonderfully soft rendition of a surreal presence of the loved one – felt through the written word, the voice of lover echoing through the letters, and the presence is so real that the lady wakes up with a start having felt the reality of a kiss on her forehead. Yes, the song is “Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas, Tum Rehti Ho”. I am never tired of replaying this song, the video I mean. Just the song itself is great, but its presentation on screen has enhanced its beauty and impact many folds.

Vijay Anand has also appeared in a handful of films. In some of the films that he directed himself, and he is not in the list of actors, one can catch a glimpse of him in very brief cameo appearances. However, he has appeared in bigger roles, and also as a hero. The first film in which he made his debut in a meaty role is ‘Joru Ka Bhai’ from 1955, a comedy film in which the lead pair was Balraj Sahni and Sheela Ramani.

His next major appearance is as the hero of the 1957 film ‘Agra Road’, a cops and robbers type of story. Next we see him on screen along with his two elder brothers, Chetan and Dev, in the 1960 film ‘Kala Bazaar’ which he also directed. In this film he plays the role of the ex-boyfriend of Waheeda Rehman, who has gone for higher studies to France, and returns with his amorous loyalties shifted elsewhere.

After a gap of four years, he is seen once again in a supporting role in ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964), a film that had a large ensemble of main line stars. The next gap is much longer – 7 years. And he makes his screen appearance once again in the 1971 film ‘Tere Mere Sapne’, a film that he has directed himself. His role in this film as Dr. Jagannath Kothari, a famous gynecologist (in film), is very impressive and effective.

The next film is ‘Chhupa Rustom’ in 1973. Dev and himself, are police agents who go undercover to capture a gang of smugglers. Once again, this film is directed by him. His role, masquerading as a shady, brash, small time, two-timing con man brings out the comedian in him – in my opinion one of his best screen appearances. This film is an Indianized version of the famous novel by Alistair MacLean – ‘Fear Is The Key’.

Parallel to ‘Chhupa Rustam’ in 1973, he also appeared in the film ‘Double Cross’. In this, he appears in a double role as the hero and his twin brother who is on the wrong side of the law. He was not yet 40, but he looked quite overage for this twin brothers roles. He appears to be trying very hard to be the role, but was not convincing. The con-man role in ‘Chhupa Rustam’ was a great act, but in ‘Double Cross’ he did not quiet click. It is interesting to note that in the role of the brother on the right side of the law, Vijay is a professional photographer. That rang a bell in my mind and I checked. Very much so, the film ‘Heera Panna’ in which Dev Anand plays the role of a professional photographer also, was released in 1973 itself. As one compares the two performances, they are quite similar in mannerism, attire and body language. Now who was copying from whom? 🙂

In 1973 came another good film, produced and directed by his elder brother Chetan – ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam’. He played the role of a fighter pilot, coming from a family of soldiers and pilots. There is a brief but a great monologue by him in this film – “Saathiyo, Dosto, Hum Hi To Aaj Ke Arjun Hain. . .”. (It can be viewed at 39:40 on the timeline at the link for the film ‘Hindustan Ki Kasam‘.) He presents this monologue, takes to the skies and then does not return. A short role, albeit an impressive one.

A year later he produced the film ‘Chor Chor’ (1974), but did not direct it himself. It is a suspense thriller that did not make it good on the box office, however, it was praised by the critics and reviewers. The film had no songs, and its star cast was very interesting. Vijay had assembled many actors of yesteryears for this film – Trilok Kapoor, Jairaj, and Ranjan. The female lead opposite to Vijay himself is Leena Chandawarkar. I have not seen this film, but it seems interesting enough to merit a view.

In 1974, he appeared in another film, in a very impressive performance once again. The film ‘Kora Kaagaz’, and he is cast with Jaya Bhaduri as the leading pair. The film is about an idealistic romance that transforms into matrimony. And the matrimony cannot withstand the reality of social relations and issues of personal choices – it breaks apart. Alas, there is a happy ending as the estranged spouses meet and make up in railway waiting room. Another very impressive performance.

Then, after a gap of another 4 years, Vijay appeared in another very good role – that of a rich landlord, very well performed. The film is ‘Main Tulsi Tere Aangan Ki’. A gem of a film by Raj Khosla, Vijay is pitted against two seasoned performers – Nutan as his first and legally wedded wife and Asha Parekh as his second companion in life, whom he brings home much to the dislike of the first lady of the house.

In 1981, came the film ‘Ghungroo Ki Awaaz’ – a tale of haunting and intrigues. Once again, Vijay finds himself out of his depth. Is that a reflection of being a very good director and then come to act under the direction of another director who may not be as well capable. Don’t know whether we should draw this comparison. But then this film is not in my list of impressive performances by Vijay.

In 1984, Chetan Anand produced and directed ‘Hum Rahe Na Hum’ in which Vijay and Shabana Azmi played the lead pair. Then in 2001, he produced and directed ‘Jaana Na Dil Se Door’ in which he and brother Dev played senior roles in a film with an impressive star cast that includes Kamini Kaushal, Mohnish Behl, Moushumi Chatterji, Indrani Bannerjee, Dinesh Hingoo and Vikram Gokhale.

Vijay also appeared in a mini series on TV in 1994, titled ‘Tehkikaat’, in the role of Sam D’Silva, an investigator.

Readers would remember that Alfred Hitchcock always made it point to appear in his own films in a fleeting cameo appearance. That was his signature mark in his films, and the audiences would eagerly await to catch his appearance as they viewed his films for the first time. Vijay Anand has also a similar reputation, albeit we are not sure we have tracked down his cameos in all the films that he directed. A brief list of what I have been able to compile.

He appears in ‘Funtoosh’ (1956) as a young out-of-work writer, who meets Funtoosh (Dev Anand) after he is released from the mental hospital. Funtoosh gifts him a pen to write.

Then in ‘Tere Ghar Ke Saamne’ (1963) he appears in the stairwell of Qutab Minar, wearing spectacles, walking down the stairs with two other persons, as Dev and Nutan are busy with their amorous inclinations singing “Dil Ka Bhanwar Karey Pukaar”.

In ‘Guide’ (1965), we hear his voice, as an unknown stranger is asking about Raju guide on the railway platform. Just a very brief dialogue.

In ‘Jewel Thief’ (1967), we hear his voice on the phone, in a brief conversation with Helen.

In ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970) he appears very briefly in the role of a spy, a fleeting cameo.

Again in 1970 ‘Johnny Mera Naam’, we hear his voice very briefly as an officer of Nepal Police greets Iftekhar at the Kathmandu airport, welcoming him to Nepal.

Here is a very interesting on screen appearance trivia. Hollywood producer and director, Mike Judge of the ‘Beavis And Butthead’ fame, was a great fan of Vijay Anand. In fact, in his animated film ‘Beavis And Butthead Do America’, there is a song being played in a casino in Las Vegas. On stage, among the musicians, there is a guitar player accompanying the singer. Mike Judge had based this character on Vijay Anand. The song in that film is ‘Love Roller Coaster’, available on YouTube; just click on the link.

A brief list of shelved films of Vijay Anand.

After ‘Rajput’ (1982) and before ‘Main Tere Liye’ (1988), Vijay Anand launched ‘Dekha Jaayega’ with Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff. Anil backed out at last moment. After a brief gap, the film was planned again with Saif Ali in place of Anil, but was later shelved.

In 1988, he planned the film ‘Dosti Ka Taqaaza’ starring Mithun and Govinda. It was later shelved.

He appeared in the film ‘Insha Allaah’ as the hero opposite to Zarina Wahab. The film was later shelved.

He directed ‘Chura Lenge Ankhon Se Kajal’ (1992) with Akshay Kumar and Kareena Karishma Kapoor. This film was also shelved.

In 1997 he starred in and directed the NFDC (National Film Development Corporation) film ‘Nyaymurty Krishnamurty’. This film also did not see the light of the day.

In the 1990s, he also started working on another film ‘Pal Pal Dil Ke Paas’, which could not be completed, probably did not go beyond the planning stage.

OK, so today’s song. It is contributed by Avinash ji. The film is ‘Ghungroo Ki Awaaz’. The story is of a family conspiracy with shades of reminders from the film ‘Mera Saaya’. The protagonist falls in love, the lady dies in confusing circumstances, then she returns as a ghost to haunt the man. The plot finally nails down another family member, who is attempting to get rid of the protagonist, for the sake of inheritance. There are maybe some more films that are based on this scenario.

The music is by RD Burman, the words are from the pen of Vijay Anand himself and Kishore Kumar is the playback voice.

A heartfelt salute to this celluloid artist who donned many a hat in his career, and had left behind a memorable legacy.

अंधेरों में छुपी है किरण

अंधेरों में छुपी है किरण
मिलन है पर ये कैसा मिलन
अधूरा हैं

Songs Repeated in Hindi Films – 12
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

What we have today is a repeat song of a very familiar and a very wonderful hit of its time, and yes, an all time favorite that seems to carry a timeless appeal for people in love. And as is shown on screen, people in love – of all ages. This reuse has some very interesting circumstances, mostly well evident in the picturization itself.

The original song is from the hit film ‘Khel Khel Mein’ from 1975. The lead pair in that film is Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, who were famously in love off the celluloid also. They were referred to as the ‘Love Birds’ of the Hindi cinema. Their affair culminated in their tying the proverbial matrimonial knot in 1980. ‘Khel Khel Mein’ was possibly their second film together, having worked together earlier for the first time together, in ‘Zehreela Insaan’ in 1974. The original song is performed on screen by this pair, playing roles of college students in love, and in search of fun and adventure through petty pranks. On screen, the scenario is that both are drunk, and have got it into their minds to announce their love for each other to the world through this song. The original song is written by Gulshan Baawra and the music is by RD Burman.

The repeat song is from the 2005 film – ‘Pyaar Mein Twist’. The lead roles in this film are played by Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia. Seeing this pair on screen brought back memories of many a story, all the way back from three decades ago.

Rewind back to 1973. Rishi and Dimple make their individual debuts as lead players in ‘Bobby’, a teen romance that straddles two diverse strata of the society as well as religious affiliations. The film was the big hit of 1973, that revived the fortunes of RK banner after the box office debacle of ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970). The release of this film was preceded, and accompanied by a ton of controversies that had the pulp press working overtime for months on end. An uncanny facial resemblance (at that point in time) between Dimple and Nargis of ‘Barsaat’ (1949), created a havoc laden rumor tornado – that Dimple is actually Raj Kapoor’s daughter from his alleged affair with Nargis when the two were a popular and fantastic pair on screen, and off it, in late 1940s to mid 1950s. Of course the rumor was really preposterous; given the dates and timelines of years. But the smut press was really having a great time. Then another storm of rumor was thrown into this mix – that of an off screen affair between Rishi and Dimple. This was even more flabbergasting – as evidenced by the fact that Rishi – fondly called Chintu Baba, would soon be entangled with Neetu Singh, in a relationship that has lasted a life time. The rumor simply refused to die for weeks on end, despite strong denial statements by all parties concerned.

And then, even before the film ‘Bobby’ was formally released, there came another thunderous event that really complicated the already horrendous mess. Totally out of the blue, the marriage of Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia was announced. Rajesh Khanna was riding a great popularity wave as the superstar of the decade. The decision raised many an eyebrow, all the way to the sky, given that Rajesh Khanna was already in an almost live-in relationship with the small time actress Anju Mahendru. Couple that with the immediate announcement of Dimple’s retirement from the film industry. Goodness, the amount of dirty gossip raised by all these eventualities, was really getting out of hand. To a right thinking person, all the gossip was incredulous and unbelievable, at that time. It would serve no purpose to regurgitate it. And then, in some months’ time, as the controversies appeared to have lived out their usefulness, the box office success of ‘Bobby’ created another gossip storm – that all the controversies and their public discourse associated with Dimple – all the rumor rot was just a marketing ploy to create a box office success for ‘Bobby’. It took almost a year for the storm to die down.

Fast forward now to 1982. The long brewing trouble in the Rajesh-Dimple marriage came to a head, with Dimple leaving the matrimonial home with her two daughters, never to return again. After a cooling period of a year or so, the news emerged about the much awaited return of Dimple to the films. One of the first films that she signed up for was ‘Saagar’ (1985), opposite to Rishi Kapoor once again. The film was delayed by almost a year – in normal course it would have hit the theatres in 1984. Other films starring Dimple got released earlier.

Over the years, this pair has appeared on screen together with an infrequent regularity – ‘Allah Rakha’ in 1986, then on to ‘Ajooba’ and ‘Ranbhoomi’ in 1991. Then in 2005, after another gap of 14 years, came ‘Pyaar Mein Twist’, the film under discussion today. The two actors have appeared together in two more films since then – ‘Luck By Chance’ in 2009 and then ‘Patiala House’ in 2011.

‘Pyaar Mein Twist’ is a romantic comedy underlining a serious subject of mature age romance between two single parents, Yash (role played by Rishi Kapoor) and Sheetal (role played by Dimple Kapadia), both having a flourishing household each of them is responsible for. And yet, Cupid does not spare them from romantic entanglement, leading to a major social upset in the two families. However, with the support of a benevolent aunt (Toshi Auntie – role played by Farida Jalaal) and a supporting future son-in-law (Sanju – role played by Sameer Dattani), all ends well for all parties concerned. The ending sequence shows Yash performing the kanyadaan ceremony at the wedding of Sheetal’s daughter, topped off with a happy smiling family group photo shoot.

The reused song is actually not the real original. It has been re-recorded in different voices for the purpose of this film. It is a duet – but now it is a male-male duet. The original is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhosle. The repeat version is sung by Babul Supriyo and Vinod Rathod. On screen, it is performed by Yash and his childhood friend Khanna (role played by Satish Shah). The scene is a marriage anniversary party of Khanna. Yash, after a few pegs down his belt, decides to make a public proclamation of his love for Sheetal – much to her visible surprise and suppressed delight.

One query for the more knowledgeable readers – please help to identify the lady in the red saaree standing next to Dimple in this song. She plays the role of Satish Shah’s wife in this film. I have seen her in a couple of other contemporaneous films, but cannot recall her name.

The song starts off with the opening lines of another iconic hit of Rishi Kapoor – the song “Meri Umar Ke Naujawaanon. . . – To Gaao Om Shanti Om”, in his own voice, and then it leads into the lines “Khullam Khulla. . .”. Of the original three stanza song, only two stanzas have been used in repeat version.

So check out this modern day avataar of an iconic song from the 1970s, which is performed on screen by the same actor – thirty years apart. This must be a record of sorts, after considering WM Khan’s performance of the primeval “De De Khuda Ke Naam Pe. . .” in the three versions of the film ‘Alam Ara’ – 1931, 1956 and 1973.

Listen and enjoy.
