Blog Day : 3514 Post No. : 14115

Today (2 march 2018) is Holi, the festival of colours in India.

This happens to be the TENTH Holi festival for the blog. We discuss Holi songs from Hindi movies on this occasion. As many as 55 Holi festival songs have been covered during the last nine Holi festival occasions. Almost all well known Hol festival songs have already been covered. But seeing that Holi is the most popular festival for Hindi movies, ahead of the second placed festival of Deewaali, we still have a good number of Holi festival songs still left to be covered.

Take this song for instance. This movie “Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani”(1957) had seven songs in it. The sixth and penultimate song from the movie was discussed two years ago. The seventh and final song had to be held back all these days because it happened to be a Holi festival song. It was lined up for 2017 Holi but it missed the bus on that occasion. So the next opportunity for this song being covered in the blog was the Holi of 2018 viz today.

Here are the details of the six songs of “Ek Gaaon Ki Kahaani”(1957) that have been covered in the past.

“Jawaahar”(1960) was a “social” movie which was made by Kuldeep Productions, Bombay. Names of producer, director and actors of the movie are not available on HFGK. THankfully, details of the songs of the movie are avaialable.

The movie had five songs in it, and they were as rare as the movie. May be less rare than the movie in the sense that these songs are at least available.

Three songs from the movie have been covered in the past.

Here is the fourth song from “Jawaahar”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Lata. Prem Dhawan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Salil Chaudhary.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Jaane kahaan khoya mera laal (Jawahar)(1960) Singer-Lata, PLyrics-rem Dhawan, MD-Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics

jaane kahaan khoya mera laal
khoya mera laal
teri khoj mein rote rote
yoon hi beet gaye kayi saal
teri khoj mein rote rote
yoon hi beet gaye kayi saal
jaane kahaan khoya mera laal aal
khoya mera laal

galiyon ki dhool bani ee ee ee
meri zindagaani
koi to bataao
mere laal ki nishaani ee ee
haay re
na jaane kyun chup hai ye dharti
chup hai gagan vishaal
na jaane kyun chup hai ye dharti
chup hai gagan vishaal
jaane kahaan khoya mera laal aal

kahaan kahaan dhhoondhe tohe
mamta ki maari

kabhi kahoon aaj mera aa aa aa
laal hai yahaan
kabhi kahoon aise mere
bhaag kahaan aa aa aa
haay re

hullo Atuldom

This post features the YYIIPPEEEE song of the movie called “Agni Pareeksha” (1981). Produced by B. R. Chopra and directed by Kamal Majumdar. The star cast had Amol Palekar- Parikshit Sahni- Rameshwari in the lead and the supporting cast was of Veena, Dr. Shreeram Lagoo, Utpal Dutt and Dinesh Thakur. Music was by Salil Choudhry and Yogesh was the lyricist. Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle and Lata Mangeshkar were the singers used. The movie had four songs, all solos no duets, three have been posted with a brief idea about the movie being in this post.

I had held back sending this post to Atulji as I wanted it to coincide with Rameshwari’s birthday. She is a graduate from the Film and Televison Institute Pune. She has appeared in many movies in varied languages – Malayalam, Bengali, Bhojpuri, oriya etc. she met her husband at TFII. Together they produced “Hum farishtey nahi” in hindi and “mein tunn assi tussi” in Punjabi… but she is best remembered for “Dulhan wahi jo piya man bhaaye”, “Sunayana”, “Asha” etc. and a few serials. She took a break to raise her family and was back in 2002 with “Kuch Tum Kaho Kuch Hum Kahe” as Vikram Gokhale’s sister and from then began her 2nd innings.

Today’s song will remind the viewer of songs like “aaj se pehle aaj se zyada” from “Chitchor” and “dil toh hai dil dil ka aitbaar kya kije” from “Muqqadar Ka Sikandar”. Meaning the heroine is singing blissfully unaware that both the heroes are fantasising about her. 🙂 also as in the Chitchor song she is unaware of the changed relations between her and Parikshit Sahni. Remember in the Cgtchor song Amol Palekar was unaware of the situation until Zarina Wahab informs him about why Vijendra has made an appearance in their life.

Editor’s note- I had originally planned to cover this song three years ago on this date in 2015 and that writeup is still there with me. I have no idea how I missed posting it on that date as post number 10650. Lyrics and other details for the song were provided by Prakashchandra for the song. So the lyrics of this song are by Prakashchandra and my observations on Rameshwari that I had then noted down were like this:

Today (6 january) is the birthday of Rameshwari. Many people among younger generation may look askance on the mention of her name. But there was a time during 1977-78 when she was one of the hottest properties in Hindi movies when she made her debut in Rajshree Production’s endearing movie “Dulhan wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye” (1977). This movie turned her into an overnight sensation. People (especially women) would throng to watch this movie. When this movie was released in my town, I did not take any notice of it because the title of the movie did not appeal to me and in any case I was more into watching Amitabh Bachchan movies those days. But when I noticed that this movie was having a longer run in the town that what even “Sholay” (1975) managed, then I was intrigued and I bunked my college to watch this movie. And I was bowled over ! I then watched this movie four more times, and it was only for Rameshwari.


Song-Pyaar hai pyaar aur kuchh bhi nahin (Agni Pareeksha)(1981) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Salil Chaudhary

Salil Chowdhury or Salilda as he was known in the Indian Film industry…mind the term Indian here and not Bollywood—would have been about 94 years old (on 19th November) if he had been there. He was an active music composer for Malayam, Bengali and Hindi movies. That is the reason for me using the term “Indian Film Industry”. Born in West Bengal he spent his childhood in the Tea Gardens of Assam. He came to Calcutta (Kolkata) for his graduate studies and that is when he joined IPTA. His musical career had a take off from here when he wrote and set songs to tune for IPTA. His film debut came in the Bengali film of 1949 “Paribortan” and his Hindi debut was Bimal Roy’s “Do Bigha Zamin” in 1952. His Malayalam debut was “Chemeen” in 1964. He did about 75 Hindi. 40 Bengali and 27 Malayalam movies. We can find his music in a few Tamil, Kannada, Marathi, Gujarati, Oriya and Assamese films too.

As I was going through the blog I found that “Agni Pareeksha” (1981) had music by Salilda. On further hunting I came across a very hummable song in the vocals of Kishore Kumar that was written by Yogesh. The song has Amol Palekar singing for a puppet show and Rameshwari and Parikshit Sahani squirming very much like Rajendra Kumar and Vyjayanthimala in “Dost dost na raha, pyar pyar na raha,” style. Seeing this I resolved to see the movie to get the song in context.

After having sat through 2 hours and 15 minutes of the movie “Agni Pareeksha” this is what I learnt or deduced:-

Sometimes even the best intentions of the producer (this movie is produced by B.R. Chopra death anniversary was on 5th November) and good acting by an able actor meaning Amol Palekar (24th November birthday i.e. today) are not enough to save a movie with a bad story and script no matter who the director is (Kamal Majumdar). Added to that one has to tolerate an actor who hams -Parikshit Sahni and an actress (Rameshwari) who has nothing much to do.

The story revolves around the estate and business of a rich lady (Veena) who has a son (Amol Palekar) undergoing treatment in psychiatric’s (Iftikhar) nursing home to get over a trauma. The son has seen his father commit suicide by jumping off a bridge into a river prompted by his wife- Veena’s ex-love’s (Dr.Shreeram Lagoo) return. This is the cause of the son’s trauma.

Meanwhile, Veena takes the responsibility of looking after the upbringing of an orphan girl (Rameshwari) -who turns out to be a good student and eventually a good companion to the now-aged Veena. She also assists the aged lady in handling her factories and other businesses after they find that the manager (Utpal Dutt in a negative role) is not liked by the workers of the factory.

The workers prefer to toe the line of their engineer (Parikshat Sahni), so Veena puts the engineer and Meeta (Rameshwari) in charge of the factories etc. In addition, she assigns the engineer a job to convince her son to return home plus to add confusion to the story she starts toying with the idea of having Meeta for a daughter-in-law.

As luck would have it Meeta and the engineer have fallen in love, and the son (Amol Palekar) also develops a liking for Meeta the instant he sees her. Then follows the usual round of sacrifices between the lovers so that ‘Maalkin’ and her son are happy; the son is instigated by the ex-manager to doubt the lovers; Meeta runs away to marry the engineer and the son shoots himself with a gun that has the engineer’s fingerprints enough to accuse the engineer of the murder. What follows is the family and Meeta trying their level best with the help of Dr. Shreeram Lagoo to save the engineer from the gallows.

So that my friends is the “Agni Pareeksha” that the audience is put to.

After having graduated from J.J. School of Arts Mumbai, and working in a bank alongside being active on stage, Amol Palekar made his movie debut in Satyadev Dubey’s Marathi movie “Shantata! Court Chalu Aahe!” and Basu Chatterjee’s Rajnigandha was his first Hindi release. This led to many other ‘middle-class boy next door’ roles for almost the entire 70s and he did his act so well that when he did a serial-killer in Vinod Chopra’s “Khamosh” or a grey-shaded Kishan Lal in Anil Ganguly’s “Aanchal” it came as a shock to the audience.

He had done a grey-shaded character very early on in his career in Shyam Benegal’s 1977 release “Bhumika” too; but essentially, he was always the friendly-neighborhood good boy. On running through his filmography, it is seen that his movie career started around the same time as the Amitabh Bachchan’s but they got to act together only in the 2001 releases “Aks” where Amol had a brief role of a defence minister though AB did a friendly appearance in “Golmaal” (1979).

Today he has returned to his first love – painting though he says he is still open to doing movies if he finds them interesting.

Wishing our Ram Prasad alias Laxman Prasad alias Amol Palekar a happy and healthy life- and a very Happy Birthday.

Song-Mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi (Agni Pareeksha)(1981) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Salil Chaudhary

Lyrics

mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi
aa gaye meri baahon mein donon jahaan

mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi
aa gaye meri baahon mein donon jahaan
yaar paas hai
pyaar bhi paas hai
taqdeer sabki hoti hai aisi kahaan
mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi
aa gaye meri baahon mein donon jahaan

main thha akela nahin
koi kahin thha mera humsafar
jeewan ki sooni si thhi ye dagar
main thha akela nahin
koi kahin tha mera humsafar
jeewan ki sooni si thhi ye dagar
tumne jo pyaar se apnaaya mujhe
tumne jo pyaar se apnaaya mujhe
raah saji manzil ki
mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi
aa gaye meri baahon mein donon jahaan
yaar paas hai pyaar bhi pas hai
taqdeer sabki hoti hai aisi kahaan

do do mujhe toh dekho paaras patthar chhoo gaye
sone ke rang mein range khwaab naye
do do mujhe toh dekho paras pathar chhoo gaye
sone ke rang mein range khwaab naye
jhoome dil magan
jeene ki lagan
jhoome dil magan
jeene ki lagan
phir se mere man mein basi
mil gayi achaanak mujhe har khushi
aa gaye meri baahon mein donon jahaan
yaar pass hai
pyaar bhi pas hai
taqdeer sabki hoti hai aisi kahaan
taqdeer sabki hoti hai aisi kahaan

Today (23 january 2017) is the 120th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose (Dob-23 january 1897).

Lots and lots have been written and said about Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose over the decades. We in this blog have also written about him. In fact, I too have written about him in this blog durng his earlier birth anniversaries.

Lata Mangeshkar who first sang in a Marathi film ‘Gajabhau’ (1944), is still continuing to sing for Hindi films albeit very sparingly. As per http://www.myswar.com, she sang a solo song for the film ‘Dunno No Y2 Life is a Moment’ (2015). That gives her playback career a span of over 7 decades – a world record, I guess, in playback singing for films. In fact, she sang for 46 films between 2000-2015. I thought why not do a similar exercise for Talat Mehmood.

‘Poonam Ki Raat’ (1965) – a film that is rich in wonderful songs. The lyrics from the pen of Shailendra and the lilting tunes from the baton of Salil Chaudhry, have made almost all songs of this film as wonderful gems. Three songs from the film are already represented here – the soulful and pensive rendering of “Dil Tadpe Tadpaaye” by Rafi Saab, the fabulous, ritzy dance number “Ta Dhim Tana Dhim. . .” that only Asha Bhosle can do, and the haunting sounds of “Saathi Re. . . Tujh Bin Jiyaa Udaas Re” in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar. So now it is the turn of a romantic duet to follow. And this song here is one wonderful melodious creation, with voices of Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar.

I had read a lot about this song, but I first listened to this song just a few days back.
