Hullo Atuldom

At the outset let me admit that I was reminded of today’s song a few days back when I was writing the post for Moushumi Chatterjee’s birthday.

Today’s song is from the 1980 released Raj Khosla directed Moushumi Chatterjee- Rishi Kapoor starrer “Do Premee”. It had a cast of Om Prakash, I S Johar, Deven Verma, Col. Kapoor (also went by the name Raj Bharati), Geeta Bahl, Aruna Irani, Roopesh Kumar etc.

The movie was a standard love story where the young couple are children of fathers who are not friends. Retd. Col. Bhagwant Singh (Om Prakash) goes to the extent of getting Payal (Moushumi) engaged to Roopesh Kumar but of course the couple elope and reach Mumbai. They take up jobs as driver and maid in a rich girl’s household (of course both are not aware that they are employed by the same person). This rich girl (Geeta Bahl) looks after her family business and also visits a guru (played by Raj Bharati). He has a huge ashram and is shown to perform miracles like walking on water etc. The guru also has a secret attached to his ashram and Deven Verma (a cop in plain-clothes) is out to crack the mystery. Meanwhile the fathers reconcile their differences and come looking for their children and save them from the captivity of the guru in the climax for a All-is-well ending.

The movie had six songs of which the blog has two both of which were posted in 2018.

Mausam pe jaaani hai (a very popular song of the movie)
and
Ladki waalon ki taraf se ladke aalon ko mubaarak ho

The songs were written by Anand Bakshi, composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal, sung by Anuradha Paudwal, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey and Mohd. Rafi.

Today we are having a duet by Mohd Rafi and Anuradha Paudwal. It shows the young couple being playful with each other. The song was decently popular in its time.

Today we are thinking of Chintu on his first anniversary. Unbelievable that it is an year. He was a person who was on his way to recovery from cancer and had gone to Delhi for a shoot when the Pandemic hit the country. He returned to Mumbai when the lock-down was announced. We saw him on news channels when the country did the candle lighting and clapping (thali bajaoing) for the Pandemic warriors. Must say that he looked a pale shadow of his former self but the child-like enthusiasm and his charming smile was there for all to see.

Chintu (Rishi Kapoor) was rather active on social media and didn’t dither from stating his mind. In the last decade or so he was seen in a variety of roles:- an underworld don in “D-Day”, a grand old 90-year man in “Kapoor & Sons”; even a 75-year-old son to a 100 year-old Amitabh Bachchan in “102 not out”. A lot more would have come for us -his fans- but for the exit which came a year ago on this date. It was a sad day for many of his colleagues, fans and most of all his near and dear ones.

I am waiting to see what happened to that last movie that he was shooting in New Delhi before the Pandemic.

Missing this actor who acted from the age of two and half years to 63.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 136 # A tribute to lyricist Verma Malik & Rishi Kapoor#
——————————————-————————————————-—

Today 30th April’2021 is the first ‘Remembrance Day’ of actor Rishi Kapoor. He was born 04th September 1952 and passed away on 30th April 2020 at the age of sixty-seven only.

When I was a growing child in the seventies Rishi Kapoor was a rising star and had started his film career with the 1973 movie ‘Bobby’. I must be five years old then. And as I have mentioned in one of my earlier articles, I had not watched this movie. Maybe I have watched few songs of this movie on TV. Then there were movies like ‘Rafoo Chakkar’, ‘Badalte Rishtey’, ‘Raajaa’, ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’, ‘Jhoothha Kahin Ka’, ‘Aap Ke Deewaane’ etc, then ‘Naseeb’’ ‘Ye Waadaa Rahaa’, ‘Karz’, ‘Zamaane Ko Dikhaanaa Hai’ and others which are a part of nostalgia of my growing years. I am not going to list all of them here. But I would like to mention few of his movies which I watched as a grown-up boy, ‘Saagar’, ‘Chaandni’, ‘Bol Radha Bol’, ‘Deewaanaa’, ‘Heena’ etc which I watched during my stay at Kota (Rajasthan).

In the recent years I watched his ‘102 not out’ on TV after his death.

As I mentioned above his movies are part of my growing years and will always be remembered whenever Hindi movies of the seventies-eighties’ are discussed.

He was very active in his personal life too and he spoke his mind on many issues on social media like twitter.

He was smiling even on the day he was hospitalized as we have seen in a video in circulation in media after his hospitalization or just before the night that he left us.

He lived his life to the fullest and his smiling face can never be forgotten.

For today’s occasion I am presenting a song which is a background song from the movie ‘Zindaa Dil-1975’. If we see the types of roles Rishi Kapoor played on screen and his personal life, he was always a ‘Zindaa Dil’ person.

Let us have a look on the list of movies released in ‘1975’ having actor Rishi Kapoor acted in them.

S. No Name of the movie Actress Passed by Censor Board
01 Khel Khel Mein Neetu Singh 13.05.1975
02 Raajaa Sulakshana Pandit 17.11.1975
03 Rafoo Chakkar Neetu Singh 02.01.1975
04 Zindaa Dil Neetu Singh 15.10.1975

(I sincerely hope that I have not missed any movie in above list)

Today’s song is written by lyricist Verma Malik. We remember him too and pay our homage to him. His ninety-sixth birth anniversary passed on 13th April’2021.
He was born on 13th April 1925 and left this world on 15 March 2009.

Today’s wonderful song also serves as our tribute to him.

Coming back to the today’s movie ‘Zindaa Dil-1975’, it was directed by Sikander Khanna for ‘S.B. Films International, Bombay’.

It had Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Zahira, Pran, I.S. Johar, Roopesh Kumar, Rajesh Lahar, Pinchoo Kapoor, Raj Mehra, C.S. Dubey, Krishan Dhawan, Padma Chauhan, Rajrani, Uma Khosla, Master Shailesh, Master Rocky, Baby Fatima, Meenakshi, Goga, Dham Mota, Ghanshyam, Manohar Azad, and K.D. Shorey, Raja Duggal and Sikander Khanna in special appearance.

This was passed by Censor Board on 15.10.1975.

This movie had five songs penned by Verma Malik and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

So far, two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is the third song from this movie to be posted on the blog. It is sung by Mohd Rafi. I guess that this song appears in the movie in parts. HFGK Vol-V mentions this song as one song only. Video for all the parts of this song seems to be un-available.

In the year ‘1975’ Verma Malik wrote lyrics for the following movies.

S. No Name of the movie Music Director
01 Aandolan Jaidev
02 Apne Dushman Kalyanji-Anandji
03 Chori Mera Kaam Kalyanji-Anandji
04 Do Jhooth Shankar-Jaikishan
05 Monto Kalyanji-Anandji
06 Raftaar Sonik-Omi
07 Sanyaasi Shankar-Jaikishan
08 Zindaa Dil Laxmikant-Pyarelal
09 Zorro Kalyanji-Anandji

From the songs penned by him in the above movies, only one song made it to the final of Binaca geetmala 1975. It was a song from ‘Sanyaasi-1975’ and it was was at number thirty-two. However, the top two songs of the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala’ 1975 were written by Verma Malik. They were from the ‘1974’ movie ‘Roti Kapda Aur Makaan’.

Let us now listen to today’s song (a philosophical song) and pay our tributes to lyricist Verma Malik and actor Rishi Kapoor…

Today’s song, which I guess is played in parts in the movie, are available in audio in several versions. I have selected a version that contains all stanzas .

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

“Chaandni” (1989) from the Yashraj Films stable was produced and directed Yash Chopra. It starred Sridevi, Rishi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Anupam Kher, Sushma Seth, Mita Vasisht, Anant Mahadevan, Manohar Singh, and Waheeda Rehman and Achala Sachdev in guest appearances. It was the story of Chandni Mathur a young effervescent young lady unsure of her emotions for two gentle men.

This was Yash Chopra’s return to his formula of love stories with good music, locales, and heavy dose of emotions and sentiments. It was very successful and also confirmed Sridevi’s position as a super actress.

It had songs written by Anand Bakshi and set to music by Shiv-Hari. Lata Mangeshkar, Suresh Wadkar, Jolly Mukherjee, Nitin Mukesh, Vinod Rathod, Anupama Deshpande (the humming in the song ‘lagi aaj saawan ki phir woh jhadi hain’), Asha Bhonsle, Babla etc. were the playback singers There is even a Kishore Kumar song in the movie which had 9 songs and the blog has 7 of these.

The Kishore Kumar song has not yet been posted.

Today’s song is the surprise of the movie. I suppose this was the only song that Sridevi has sung in Hindi films. Of course, there is a song in Balu Mahendra directed “Sadma” where Sridevi’s voice was heard along with Kamal Haasan’s in the story-song ‘ek dafa ek jungle tha’ where she giggles and gives reaction to whatever Kamal was saying.

The song with this post is something which I have always wondered about. Whether it is a fantasy or flashback. I have seen this movie a number of times and I have not been able to decide. It has been shot in the picturesque Switzerland. It is one of the songs where the heroine is seen dressed environment appropriately. It also is a lesson for the lover to never meet his love without gifts.

We remember our beloved “khwaabon ki Shehzaadi” Sridevi who left us on 24th February 2018 today. She left her family, friends and countless fans shocked when the news broke over news channels in the wee hours of 25th. The general reaction was “it cannot be true”. How can a person who was so full of vitality and healthy and eagerly expecting her daughter’s first bow on the Bollywood firmament “just go!!!!” She herself just had had a release “Mom” and was seen at various award functions and TV channels. A lasting memory for me, personally, was from the TV dance reality show where she was seen shaking a leg with her contemporary Madhuri Dixit and it was a soothing sight for sore eyes. There have been posts on our blog which have her life-story, list of co-stars etc.
Thank you Sridevi for having entertained us through your life-time having started as a child-actor.

“Saagar” (1985) had a cast of Dimple Kapadia, Rishi Kapoor, Kamal Hasaan, Saeed Jaffery, Nadira, Sharat Saxena, Shafi Inaamdar, Satish Kaushik, Lilliput and Madhur Jaffery. It was directed by Ramesh Sippy and was produced by G P Sippy’s ‘Sippy Films’. It was a vehicle for Dimple’s comeback into Bollywood after her sabbatical brought on by marriage and family life. She was making a comeback after a gap of about 11 years. Her heroes were also her age group so they made an eye-pleasing team.

“Saagar” was a simple love story of a rich boy falling in love with a ‘not-so-well off girl’ who helps her father run a tavern in a fishing village . She has a childhood friend (Kamal) who loves her but cannot get himself to profess it. Into this village the rich boy (Rishi) walks in, befriends Raja (Kamal) and falls in love with Mona (Dimple). There is also friendship between the three, almost reminiscent of Raj Kapoor’s “Sangam”. We have Ravi’s (Rishi) grandmother playing the spoke in the cartwheel of the lovers. We also have one friend sacrificing his love for the happiness of the other two.

All-in-all nothing spectacular just that the movie was entertaining and we had the lead actors giving good performances. The songs were written by Javed Akhtar, and RD Burman was the composer. He had Kishore Kumar (who won a Filmfare award for “Saagar kinaare”), Lata Mangeshkar, S P Balasubramaniam, Asha Bhonsle and Shailendra Singh singing the songs in the movie.

I am writing this post to wish the superstar of South Indian cinema on his 66th birthday. He has been in the industry from a young age. He began as a child-actor and I have written a brief about him in this post of mine four years ago. So let us get directly to the song and marvel at this actor’s ability to emote with his eyes.

The song is sung by SPB and is a party song which is a celebration of the characters birthday. It has Nadira and Lilliput who are aware of Raja’s feelings and Saeed Jaffery and others who are oblivious. The song also begins with RD’s trademark of making music with unusual instruments; here he has used a comb.

Wishing Kamalhassan all health and happiness today on his 66th birthday.

Hullo Atuldom

“Coolie” was released on 2nd December 1983. It was produced by Ketan Desai and directed by Manmohan Desai. Kadar Khan was the script writer as also the dialogue writer. It starred Waheeda Rehman, Rati Agnihotri, Shoma Anand, Rishi Kapoor, Kadar Khan, Satyen Kappu, Goga Kapoor, Suresh Oberoi, Om Shivpuri, Nilu Phule, Ashalata (who passed away recently),and Shubha Khote, Amrish Puri and Mukri in guest appearances. Of course it had Manmohan Desai cast Amitabh Bachchan in the title role with an Eagle as his companion. The Eagle was called Allah Rakha in the movie.

The movie had Kadar Khan give some great dialogues to his characters, some of which were heavy duty and some were funny. For example Iqbal introduces himself with “Humaari taarif zara lambi hai. Bachpan se hain sar pe Allah ka haath aur Allahrakha hai apne saath. Baju pe 786 ka hai billa, 20 number ki bidi peeta hoon. kaam karta hoon coolie ka aur naam hai Iqbal”. He follows it up with “jiske sar pe pad jaaye haath bache na uska ek bhi baal” and that get smirks from the audience. Then during the course of a fight scene with Suresh Oberoi, Amitabh Bachchan picks up a Hammer and Sickle, holds it up in a particular fashion and mouths “Hum mazdooron ka seena lohe ki deewaar hai, aur yeh humaare hathyaar hain. Yeh humara pet paal bhi sakte hain aur tum jaison ka pet phaad bhi sakte hain”.

“Coolie” was a movie that was slammed by the critics as the worst ever etc. but was lapped up by the paying public. It has attained cult status over the years. Puneet Issar was just a villains’ henchman when he was signed for the movie but the fight sequence in which AB was hurt made Puneet Issar famous. And the smart Manmohan Desai froze the scene in the final cut of the movie and a message appears on screen marking it as the shot when AB was injured. Apparently this was done at Amitabh’s behest. That was the kind of relation that AB shared with Manji (as Mamohan Desai was called by his friends).

One thing was on display in 1982. The level of love that the public had for the actor by the name Amitabh Bachchan. When he lay comatose in a Bombay Hospital, a whole nation prayed for him. There were reports of how people made promises to their respective gods and even fulfilled them when he recovered and restarted work on 7th January 1983. It proved that the struggle that he had on the way to superstardom had borne fruit.

Just another matter that he was a good actor who made the incredible seem normal, like fighting a leopard, tiger and a crocodile at times, with bare hands (he was not the first one to do this onscreen) in “Khoon Pasina” and some other movies. He made it seem normal that a roadside orphan could grow up to be a well to-do do-gooder who is even benevolent on the man who insulted him when he was in his teens- remember “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”. He mastered rhythm and could move a leg to music without making a fool of himself. He was appreciated when he tried to sing in his tuneless style to begin with and he has sung around 20-30 songs in his career that started in 1969. Of course he has recited poems in “Kabhi Kabhi” and “Silsila”.

He has had a wide range of roles post 2000 when he switched tracks to play characters that are appropriate to his age. He has co-starred with heroes who are his children’s age group. He is one of the actors of that generation who still has movie-makers seek him with specific roles & movies. The other was Rishi Kapoor.

Rishi Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan have acted together in a number of movies first time being in “Kabhi Kabhi” 1976. Their first successes also came in the same year-1973. Rishi Kapoor’s “Bobby” and Amitabh Bachchan’s “Zanjeer”. The two were long time friends and the last time they collaborated was in “102 not out” in 2018.

This jodi has been my personal favourite from the first time I saw them. And it is but natural that I present this song of “Coolie”. It shows the two actors’ comic side. The two of them are not eyeing the same girl. Their target is the prize money that the girl’s father Mukri promises for bringing the girl back home. She has this penchant for running away from home and is in cahoots with Sunny (Rishi) who dons a new getup every time he drops her home. Only this time Iqbal has also spotted the girl and decides to drop her home and claim the prize money.

What I like about the song is the various outfits and wigs that AB and Chintu use. The detailing that has gone into draping Chintu with a dhoti that has extra width to cover the stilts when he is trying to compete with the elephant’s height. And also the pronounced jerks that AB and Shoma Anand experience when on the elephant which at first feels that they are having a camel ride.

This song is in the voices of Shailendra Singh and Shabbir Kumar. This movie was the first time AB had a different voice.
All in all a fun song to celebrate the 78th birthday of the superstar of the millennium who has also been given the epithet BigB.

Remembering Rishi Kapoor on his 68th Birth Anniversary :

A journey started on 4th September, 1952. Rishi Kapoor’s life journey through his histrionics in tinsel town, starting with his father’s epic “Mera naam joker”, to the chocolate boy in ‘Bobby’ to the authentic Majnoo in “Laila Majnu” to the slick tycoon in “ Yeh Wada raha”, via the semi-villain in ‘Hum kisi se kam nahi”, with a heart of gold, no less. The hapless husband of ‘‘Damini” , the sacrificing lover boy of ‘Chaandni”, mark the fulfilling journey and career of a shining star with the a extra twinkle in the eyes. The nick name Chintu Kapoor suited him. And great things do come in small packages, or so I have heard.

Rishi Kapoor has more than justified the Kapoor khandaan’s legacy, with a kaleidoscope of films which people want to see again and again , just for his expressions and acting. I have just now seen the song .

This is one song I keep forgetting to mention while talking about RDB’s songs. In the song, though Rishi Kapoor is sitting in the restaurant and watching the song, it is clear who is emoting the best effect of the feel of the song. Clearly he was among the best actors of 70’s and 80’s heroes. May be Rajesh Khanna and Sanjeev Kumar were better than him, not counting Amitabh bachchan here.

Rishi Kapoor lost the battle to cancer on 30th April 2020, while the entire world was reeling under the ‘pandamic’. I could not pay a proper tribute to him at that time, so I am trying to do it now.

The pandemic’s lasting after affects are emerging like the rippling of the volcano. We all need to deal with these in a calm and collected manner, and keep faith that the things will improve in near and distant future.

Here is a small ghazal, for motivation:

– Kabhi maayoos mat honaa –

Main maantaa hoon waba’a ke din hain
Magar yeh din bhi khudaa ke din hain

Dilon se maayoosiyaan nikaalo
Zara sa aage shifa’a ke din hain

Guzar gayi umr ghaflaton mein
Yahi to rab se wafaa ke din hain

———-

Waba’a – widespread illness
Shifa’a – recovery from illness
Ghaflat – carelessness

Coming to the song, it is from the film “Deewaana”(1992). Singer is Kumar Sanu of this lengthy, long mukhdaa and long stanza’s song. Sameer is the lyricist and Nadeem-Shrawan are the music directors.

The following two songs from this film were posted way back in March 2009:
Paayaliyaa ho ho ho ho
Aisi deewaanagi

Someone made this comment in 2020 to this 28 year old song, on youtube :

कल के मधुर संगीत ,
आज के भंगार संगीत
जमीन आसमान का फर्क

Can’t disagree here, as the song is really “madhur”. This was also a personal favourite in 1992, though I might have seen this film on cable TV. The late Divya Bharti is the heroine with Rishi Kapoor, with Shah Rukh khan playing a third in a negative role, this character is not with a heart of gold 🙂 .

Rishi Kapoor is singing this song on stage with a bevy of dancers(One too many), my memory did not recall the extra dancers on stage. At least they are not in garish colour, so everyone is in heavenly sparkling white.

And may the departed souls rest in heavenly peace.

Sochenge tumhe pyar karen ke nahin – Deewana(1992)

Song-Sochenge tumhen pyaar karen ke nahin (Deewaana)(1992) Singer-Kumar Sanu, Lyrics-Sameer, MD-Nadeem Shrawan

Hullo Atuldom

This post is to say Yyiippeeee to one more movie of the ’70s.
“Badaltey Rishtey” (1978) produced by Sudesh Kumar and directed by R Jhalani, had story by Mahendra Saral.

This movie had a very funny story-line—

Rishi Kapoor and Reena Roy are in love but there is some astrologer who predicts that Reena roy is slated to loose her husband within a month of her marriage. So she decides to accept Jeetendra’s proposal of marriage so that she can save Rishi Kapoor and marry him later.
But like all Hindi movies the heroine has to fall in love with her husband. Then she takes it upon herself to save her husband from Rishi Kapoor’s plans to kill Jeetendra. But it turns out in the end that Jeetendra all along knew what who was upto and that Rishi Kapoor was only play acting in conjunction with Reena Roy’s brother to make her realize that “pati hi parmeshwar hota hai”
a very typical family drama movie.

This is what I had written in the comments to one of songs of the film. Recently I found out that A. K. Hangal was the astrologer who happens to be Reena Roy’s brother’s (Asrani) father-in-law who makes that weird prediction that leads to the twists and turns in the movie.
Four out of the five songs, in this film, were written by Anjaan and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist for meri-saanson-ko-jo-mahka-rahi-hai/ . Suman Kalyanpur, Lata Mangeshkar, Anuradha Paudwal, Kishore Kumar, Mohd. Rafi and Mahendra Kapoor were the playback singers.
The four songs, from this film, already present on the blog are

Song Date posted
Na jaane kaise pal me badal jaate hai 19 November 2008
Meri saanson ko jo mahkaa rahi hai 20 November 2009
Tum chaahe hamko pasand na karo 1 June 2019
Wo wo na rahe jinke liye ham thhey beqaraar 20 November 2019

Here is the fifth and final song. I had mentioned this song, in the comments of this post.. It is a romantic genre song where we see Rishi Kapoor trying to get Reena out of her bad mood. They are talking about ‘kar toh daro mat yaar, daro toh karo mat pyaar’.

This seemed to be the mood for many of the songs featuring Chintu (Rishi Kapoor’s pet name) in the 70s. Remember “Khullam khulla pyar karenge hum dono”. Looks like he didn’t believe in hiding his feelings from the world. That was evident in those times too, when all other actors and actresses hid their personal love stories behind the “we are just good friends” refrain, we could see Chintu with Neetu being open about their relation. An older Chintu was known to voice his opinions on the various social media channels about things that he felt was not correct or were out-of-place. Infact, Chintu’s commissioned biography is also titled “Khullam Khulla- Rishi Kapoor Uncensored”. That book has many interesting tales from his life about how his father asked his mother’s permission before casting him in the role of the young Raj in “Mera Naam Joker” which went on to fetch Chintu his first award of Best Child Artist at the National film awards that year.

He goes on to describe how he sneaked away from the conversation at the dinner table between his parents and started preening before the mirror and practicing his signature so that he can be prepared to give Autographs. In the book, Chintu also mentions how he was chosen for Bobby and how there was no great introduction scene for his character even though he was the film-maker’s son. That means there was no NEPOTISM there or special privileges given to him by Raj Kapoor, infact for the song “main shaayar toh nahin” the dance director was giving steps to Aruna Irani and not Chintu (as mentioned in the book); that explains Chintu’s awkward movements in that song. But he had a sense of rhythm that saw him shake a leg as if he was an accomplished dancer.

4rd September is the first birthday of Chintu after he lost his battle with the dreaded C in April this year. He would have been 68. We have enough of his work to entertain us for years to come. Thanks to the various channel and other video sharing platforms we can relish his songs where he dances with a Sridevi, Jaya Prada, Madhuri Dixit, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Poonam Dhillon, and all the heroines that he had worked with from his debut (as an adult) opposite Dimple in Bobby (1973).

Here is the last song from Badaltey Rishtey in the voices of Anuradha Paudwal and Kishore Kumar.


Song-Gumsum si khoyi khoyi (Badalte Rishtey)(1978) Singers-Kishore Kumar, Anuradha Paudwal, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

gumsum si

pyaar me apne dam hai toh
kismat maanegi haar

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 69
———————————————————————————–

Ten years ago, the blog was covering six songs every day and seven songs every fourth day. So I was a bit surprised to note that “only” five songs were covered on 3 September 2010. But there awsa very good reasohn for that, which will become clear during our discussion here.

Here is the list of the five songs that were covered on 3n september 2010:-

Blog post no Song Movie-Year remarks
2896 Ab to aa jaao balam Poonam 1952 YIPPEED
2897 Kaare badraa tu na jaa na jaa Shikast 1953 YIPPEED
2898 Ye jawaani ye haseen raat Khuda khair kare Khoobsoorat Dhokha 1959 4 Songs discussed out of 7
2899 Saamne ye kaun aayaa dil mein huyi halchal Jawaani Deewaani 1972 YIPPEED
2900 Kyaa huaa teraa waadaa wo qasam wo iraadaa Hum Kisise Kam Nahin 1977 Blog century post. 7 songs discussed (out of 9)

We can see from the above that three out of five movies that were taken up on 3 september 2010 have got YIPPEED in the bblog by now. So that leaves us with just two movies that are eligible for “Blog Ten Year CHallenge” today (3 September 2020).

“Ham Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1977) is one of those movies. I notice that this musical blockbuster movie had made its debut in the blog on 3 september 2010. And thatsong that was discussed was a century song for the blog ! And the song was the National Aawrd winning song Kyaa huaa teraa waadaa wo qasam wo iraadaa . A movie making its debut in the blog with a blog century song ! It shows the musical calibre of the song in general and the entire movie album in particular.

Music lovers are unanimous in agreeing that “Ham Kisi Se Kam Nahin” (1977) had a stunning array of songs, that have remaiined popular to this day.

The movie had nine songs in it. Seven of them have been covered in the blog so far. Here are their details:-

14833 Mil gaya ham ko saathi mil gaya 10 January 2019

We can notice that another song from the movie, viz Bachna ae haseenon lo main aa gaya was also a blog century song. And the writeup of that song was a special writeup by Sudhir Jee. It gave details of the musicians who were involved in creating that musical masterpiece.

When the name of this movie crops up, my mind immediately goes back to the second half of 1977. My Matriculation examinations were due in February March 1978 and like a sincere conscientious student that I was, I was seriously busy preparing for that Board Examination of Bihar State Board. Those were the days when I had no distractions. The last movie that I had watched in a movie hall was “Zindagi Zindagi”(1972) in 1972 and after that I had not watched any movies in movie halls.

There was a radio set at home, a big valve radio, but that was out of order because mice had made their home inside the warm cozy cabinet of the TELERAD 4 band radio and had damaged the valves. And my father had very wisely not bothered to get the radio repaired. So no radio commentary and no Radio Ceylon and Vividh Bharati distraction either.

But filmy music blaring out of loudspeakers was a distraction no one could guard against. These days we talk of noise pollution and disturbance to people because of loudspeakers, but no one bothered those days. Playing film songs on loudspeakers in full volume day and night, no matter what, was the norm in those parts of India. And what was the movie whose songs were the most popular with those loudspeaker playing enthusiasts ? “Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin” ! I would be trying to concentrate on my studies and my eardrums would receive songs of the movie one after the other. What rubbish songs these are, The standards of Hindi movie songs have gone to the dogs- These were the thoughts that crossed my mind while receiving constant bombardment of songs of this movie.

Fortunately, the songs of this movie failed to distract me from my studies and I was reasonably well prepared when the final exams were held in early 1978.

Having appeared for the examination, it was time for the results. Marks obtained in the examination determined which college one joined. St Xavier’s College, Ranchi was the coveted college not only for Ranchi, but for entire Bihar. Getting admission in this college was considered a matter of prestige.

I had gone to my native place after the examination. I received a letter (or was it a telegram )informing me that I had passed in first division. Detailed marks would be known only later. My father, who was also there in the village, discussed this matter with a distant relative of his, who was a progressive villager and also the headmaster cum only teacher of the only Village school. We must go meet Father XYZ of the school ABC, the progressive villager suggested. So we went some six miles by walk, and met the Father. Our distant relative informed him that this kid, his close relative had passed Matriculation examination in First division. He needs to get admitted in Ranchi’s St Xavier’s college. You know the principal of that college, so please write a letter of recommendation. The father was reluctant saying only first division may not be enough, percentage of marks also matter. But repeated insistence by my relative forced him to act. He took out a small portable typewriter (I had never seen such a modern looking typewriter) and typed out a letter. He then took an envelope, sealed it after putting the letter inside it and on the top addressed in to the Principal of St Xavier’s College. We thanked him and went back to our village.

When I went back to Ranchi and got the detailed marksheet etc, I got the form of St Xavier’s college, filled it and submitted it there. My father had decided that the recommendation letter would be used only in case I failed to get admission on my own.

When the first list of selected candidates was put up on St Xavier’s College notice board, my name was very much there. So there was no need for that recommendation letter. Nevertheless, my father opened the letter and read what was written in the recommendation letter. We found out that the father had written a very nice letter highly recommending my case for admission. But I was happy that we did not have to use such means (sifaarish) to get admission.

After I got admission in the college, I got “freedom” under the impression that I had matured being a college student. I used this new found “freedom” quite irresponsibly, I must say. I started to watch movies by bunking classes. It was in this movie watching spree that I watched “Hu Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1979) during its second run, in 1978 or 1979, in a movie hall called “Sandhya” which was located on the same road where my college was located. By that time I had warmed up to the songs of this movie. I did not find the movie any great shakes though. I did not think then that Rishi Kapoor was really a better dancer than Tariq. I had my sympathies with Tariq.

Much to my good luck, I somehow survived by the skin of my teeth academically despite acting so recklessly. Today I have become so “mature” that I cannot spare time to watch most movies. How I wish I had some of my present “maturity” during late 1970s as well. 🙂

Today, exactly ten years after “Hum Kisi Se Kam Nahin”(1977) made its debut in the blog, here is another rollicking song from “Hum Kisi Se Kum Nahin”(1977). This song is sung by Kishore Kumar, with Asha Bhonsle chiming in towards the end of the song. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman. The song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and Kajal Kiran.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Here are the details of the six songs, that appeared in the blog on 25 August 2010:-

Here are the details of these three songs from “Prem Rog”(1982):-

Song Date posted Remarks

Ye pyaar thhaa ya kuchh aur thhaa 2 June 2012
Muhabbat hai kyaa cheez hamko bataao 20 May 2013

As blog ten year challenge today, I had some superb songs to chose from. I have gone with this Lata Mangeshkar solo. I have vaguely listened to this song, but when I went through the lyrics of the song, I realised what superb lyrics this song has. It must be one of the best lyrics that Santosh Anand has penned in his HFM career. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is lip synced on screen by Padmini Kolhapure. One can also see Nanda, Sushma Seth, Kiran Vairale, Rishi Kapoor and Bindu in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Song-Ye galiyaan ye chaubaara yahaan aana na dobaara (Prem Rog)(1982) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Santosh Anand, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics ( audio link) (Provided by Prakashchandra)

ye galiyaan ye chaubaaraa
yahaan aanaa na dobaara
ye galiyaan ye chaubaaraa
yahaan aanaa na dobaara
ab hum to bhaye ae pardesi
ke tera yahaan koi nahin..een
ke tera yahaan koi nahin
le ja rang birangi yaadein
hansne rone ki buniyaadein
ab hum to bhaye ae pardesi
ke tera yahaan koi nahin..een
ke tera yahaan
koyee..ee nahin

meri haathon mein bhari bhari choodiyaan..aaan
mujhe bhaa gayeen hari hari choodiyaan aan
dekh milti hain teri meri choodiyaaan..aaan
tere jaisi saheli meri choodiyaan
tooney peessee woh mehandi rang laayee
meri gori hatheli rachaa..aaayee
teri aankh kyun laadho bhar aayee
tere ghar bhi bajegi shehnaayi
saawan mein baadal se kehna
pardes mein hai meri behna
ab hum to bhaye pardesi
ke tera yahaan koi nahin..een
ke tera yahaan koi naheen

aa Maaye aen
mil lein galey ae
chaley hum
sasuraal chaley
tere aangan mein ae ae apnaa
bas bachpan chhod chale
kal bhi sooraj niklega
kal bhi panchhi gaayenge
sab tujhko dikhaayi denge
par hum na nazar aayenge
aanchal mein sanjo lena hamko
sapnon mein bulaa lena hamko
ab hum to bhaye ae pardesi
ke tera yahaan koi nahin..een
ke tera yahaan koi naheen

dekh tu na..aa hamein aen bhulaanaa
maanaa door hamein hai jaanaa
meri allhhad si athkheliyaan
sada palkon beech basaanaa
jab bajne lagey baajey gaajey
jag lagne lagey khaali khaali
uss dum tu itna samajhna
meri doli…ee
utthhi hai phoolon waali..eee..eee
thhodey din ke ye naate the
kabhi hanste the gaate the
ab hum to bhaye ae pardesi
ke tera yahaan koi naheen
ke tera yahaan
koi naheen
ye galiyaan ye chaubaaraa
yahaan aanaa na dobaara
ab hum to bhaye ae pardesi ..ee
ke tera yahaan koi naheen..een
ke tera yahaan ko..o oyi nahin
