Hullo Atuldom

“Saagar” (1985) was produced by G P Sippy and directed by Ramesh Sippy. Its story, screenplay and lyrics were written by Jawed Akhtar and RD Burman was music director. The movie had 7 songs of which the blog has 5 but in my opinion we have covered six songs as the sad version of ‘saagar kinaare dil ye pukaare’ is found in the comments of post; which means that with today’s post “Saagar” will be YYIIPPEEEED!!!

Song Date of post
Maria o Maria 3 September 2008
Saagar kinaare dil ye pukaare 29 November 2008
Yoonhi gaate raho 9 August 2013
Ho chehra hai ya chaand khila hai 17 June 2018
Sach mere yaar hai 7 November 2020

We can see “Saagar” made its debut in 2008 ( 2 songs) then the next one came 5 years later. The movie waited for another 5 years when Atulji posted ‘chehra hai ya chaand khila hai’ and then we had a song last November.

“Saagar” was a star-studded movie (a term which was very commonly used in those times) with Dimple Kapadia (who was making a return to films), Rishi Kapoor, Kamal Haasan, Saeed Jaffrey, Nadira, Madhur Jaffrey, Kiran Vairale, Shafi Inaamdar, Satish Kaushik, A K Hangal etc. Kishore Kumar, S P Balasubrahmanyam, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle and Shailendra Singh. ‘Chehra hai ya chaand khila hai’ got Kishore Kumar his 8th Filmfare award. It was a film that was sent as an entry to the Academy Awards in the Foreign Language category. Interestingly, Kamal Haasan was nominated under the Best Actor and Best Actor supporting categories in the Filmfare awards of that year. He won it in the Best Actor category, his only award in Hindi films. Before that, in 1968, Ashok Kumar was nominated in two categories for ‘Aashirwad’. The movie had a very simple story of two friends falling in love with the same girl with an economic classes clash thrown in for good measure.

I had lots of songs to choose from for today’s post to wish Dimple Kapadia on her 64th birthday. This song from ‘Saagar’ gives us a glimpse of how beautiful Dimple is/was. How gorgeous her hair is/was. How elegant she is/was. Though she had signed ‘Saagar’ first other movies like ‘Zakhmi Sher’, ‘Lava’, ‘Manzil Manzil’ etc released first. She has since been seen in many movies where her characters have showed emotions, drama, action etc.

It was not easy writing out the lyrics to this song. There are so many different styles of breathing intonation, I didn’t know if the sound ‘ssh’ with which the song begins is a word or the character catching her breath when the hero touching her. But all-in-all a very romantic song and there is a beautiful play of lights reflecting off the waters of the pool.

Happy Birthday Dimple. may you have many more…

Hullo Atuldom

“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.


Song-Sach mere yaar hai (Saagar)(1985) Singer-S P Balasubrahmaniam, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-R D Burman
Chorus

Lyrics

sach mere yaar hai
bas wohi pyaar hai
jiske badle mein koi to pyaar de
baaki bekaar hai
yaar mere
ho o yaar mere
sach mere yaar hai
bas wohi pyaar hai
jiske badle mein koi to pyaar de
baaki bekaar hai
yaar mere
ho o yaar mere

jis haathh mein ik haathh hai
us haathh ki ee kya baat hai
kyaa faasle ae kya manzilen
ik humsafar gar saath hai
jiski kismat koi yoon sanwaar de
wohi dildaar hai ae
yaar mere
ho o yaar mere

sunte thhe hum ae zindagi
gham aur khushi ka mel hai
hum ko magar aaya nazar
ye zindagi wo khel hai
koi sab jeete
sab koi haar de
hahaha
apni to haar hai
yaar mere
haan yaar mere
sach mere yaar hai
bas wohi pyaar hai
jiske badle mein koi to pyaar de
baaki bekaar hai

The Golden era of HFM was well and truly over after 1980s, with Disco “music” sounding the death knell of HFM as we knew till then. In these “music”, lyrics were all but dispensed with.

HFM continued to have a few nice songs even during the “disco” era. There were still some artists who refused to compromise with quality and refused to stoop to the new low that was set as the new standards of HFM post 1980.

“Saagar”(1985) was one such movie whose music felt like a breath of fresh air during that era. This movie had come from the stables of a well known and well respected production house, one that had given us “Sholay”(1975).

“Saagar”(1985) was Produced by G P Sippy and directed by Ramesh Sippy. The movie had Rishi Kapoor, Kamal Haasan, Dimple Kapadia, Saeed Jaffrey, Shafi Inamdaar, Nadira, A K Hangal, Madhur Jaffrey, Satish Kaushik, Goga Kapoor, Kiran Vairale, Lilliput, Shobha Khote, Sudhir Pandey, Sharat Saxena, Mushtaq Merchant, Jairaj etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Saagar”(1985) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Jawed Akhtar, who wrote the script of “Sholay”(1975) alongwith Salim Khan as Salim Jawed, had turned a lyricist by then. “Saagar”(1975) was one of the first (if not the first) movies where he penned lyrics.

R D Burman composed the music.

The song is picturised as a club song where Rishi Kapoor, holding a guitar, is seen lip syncing this song. The song is addressed to his long separated flame (played by Dimple Kapadia). Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia had last actded together in “Bobby”(1973) which was the launch vehcle for Rishi Kapoor as well as Dimple Kapadia. while Rishi Kapoor successfully got launched and established, Dimple Kapadia, in a surprise movie married Rajesh Khanna and vanished from films. It was more than one decade later that she was persuaded to make comeback to movies. She made quite a stunning comback in movie like “Aitbaar”(1985) and “Saagar”(1985).

Music of these movies were quie stunning and played stellar roles in the box office success of these movies.

The song under discussion is one such song. It remains a timeless classic to this day.


Song-Ho chehra hai ya chaand khila hai (Saagar)(1985) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Jawed Akhtar, MD-R D Burman
Chorus

Lyrics

ho chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya
chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

arre tu kya jaane teri khaatir
kitna hai betaab ye dil
tu kya jaane dekh rahaa hai
kaise kaise khwaab ye dil
dil kehtaa hai tu hai yahaan
to jaataa lamhaa thham jaaye
waqt ka dariyaa behte behte
is manzar mein jam jaaye
toone deewaanaa dil ko banaayaa
is dil par ilzaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

ho aaj mai tujhase door sahi
aur tu mujhse anjaan sahi
tera saath nahin paaun to
khair tera aramaan sahi

lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalala
lalalalalala
lalalalalaa
laalaalaa

ho ye armaan ho
shor nahin ho
khaamoshi ke mele hon
is duniya mein koi nahin ho
ham donon hi akele hon
tere sapne dekh rahaa hoon
aur meraa ab kaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bataa tera naam hai kya
chehra hai yaa chaand khila hai
zulf ghaneri shaam hai kya
saagar jaisi aankhon waali
ye to bata tera naam hai kya

Here is a song that I have wanted to send for quite some now. I will call it rare in the sense that the duet is with male singers —Kishore Kumar and S P Balasubramaniam. The two heroes are Rishi Kapoor and Kamalhaasan. The picturisation shows the heroes dancing in a local joint- call it a bar or an eating house or Tavern (I think that is the right word) run by Dimple and her dad Saeed Jaffrey.

Dimple Kapadia made her debut in 1973 with “Bobby”. The success of this movie should have seen her landing many assignments and launch her career. Instead, she got married to Rajesh Khanna, and she was lost to Bollywood.

We have seen how true blue shayars like Hasrat Jaipuri, Majrooh etc could come up with funny lyrics leading to some great fun songs. Here we see Javed Akhtar, scriptwriter turned shayar, emulating his illustrious predecessors. Here lyrics are written in a common real life language, and not in the usual high sounding words. This was one of the first such songs as far as I can recall.

This song is preceded by some great funny scenes in the movie involving the hero and the heroine, and the fun continues in this song, when the two go to attend a wedding party.
