Blog Day :

5119 Post No. : 17068

Today 24th July 2022 is the eighty-fifth birth anniversary of actor, producer, director, writer, and lyricist Manoj Kumar.
He was born as Harikishan Giri Goswami on 24th July 1937 in Abbottabad (then in North-West frontier province of British India and now in Pakistan).

Manoj Kumar has been one of the many favorites of us, those who have grown up in the years of ‘seventies’, or people like me who were born in end-sixties and grow up in the ‘1970s’.

We get to watch many of his old movies including black and white movies (e.g., ‘Woh Kaun Thhi’ etc), and the current movies released during the period till eighties and then nineties. Since Manoj Kumar’s movies were having good music and songs they were liked very much. And apart from that his movies had his ‘special touch’ in those which he directed, or he acted. Manoj Kumar has his special place in the history of Hindi Films.

Apart from being an actor Manoj Kumar has been a Director, Producer, Writer, Editor, and Lyricist too.

Today on his birth anniversary I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Santosh-1989’ which is penned by him only. Out of the seven songs this movie has Manoj Kumar had written lyrics for one song in this movie. (Remaining six songs were written by Santosh Anand).

‘Santosh-1989’ was an ‘East-n-West Movies’ presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan.
Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie.

It had Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar, and others.

Story of ‘Santosh-1989’ was written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by V.V. Kamat (assisted by Ashok Naik).

As mentioned above this movie had seven songs written by Santosh Anand (six songs) and Manoj Kumar (one song).
Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

The songs from this movie are good to listen and I have presented four songs from this movie earlier on the blog.

Following is the list of songs this movie had. Four of these seven songs have been posted on the blog earlier.

SNo Title of the Song Lyricist Singer/s Posted On the blog
01 Are logon tumhe kya hai Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar 05.03.2022
02 Bataao tumhen pyaar kaise karoon Santosh Anand Nitin Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle 27.06.2022
03 Kahkahon ke liye Santosh Anand Mahendra Kapoor
4 Yoon lagne lagi aajkal zindagaani Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar, Nitin Mukesh 27.06.2018
05 Aaj main bechain hoon Santosh Anand Mahendra Kapoor, chorus 09.01.2022
06 Bansi waale ne gher lai Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar
07 Tera allah beli Manoj Kumar Mahendra Kapoor, chorus

Today’s song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor and chorus. Amjad Khan is lip-syncing the song in the voice of Mahendra Kapoor and the picturization shows that this song is happening in the jail premises where all the jail inmates are performing and the police officers also watching their performance (which should be a part of extracurricular activities I guess 😊). In the backdrop of the performance there is a plan to help Manoj Kumar to run away from the jail custody which he succeeds (by the time the song ends) however the Police Inspector finally comes to know of this, and he shoots Amjad Khan.

Let us now enjoy this song written by Manoj Kumar.

Today on his birth anniversary we wish Manoj Kumar a ‘very happy birthday’ and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Blog Day :

5092 Post No. : 17020

We are in the fag-end of the month of June of this year 2022. As I had mentioned earlier that this month is a special for many of us due to the many anniversaries falling in this month i.e., anniversaries of relatives, friends and as well as anniversaries of many artists too. Today we celebrate birth anniversary of our beloved music genius Rahul Dev Burman, and one post has already been posted on the blog remembering Pancham.

Today 27th June, 2022 is also the seventy-second birth anniversary of singer Nitin Mukesh (born on 27th June, 1950). We wish him a very happy birthday today and also wish him a healthy and peaceful life ahead.

On this occasion I am once again going back to the songs from the movie ‘Santosh’ (1989). There is one duet sung by Nitin Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle in this movie which is yet to be posted on the blog. This song is lying ready with us since long and I take this opportunity to present it today here on the blog.

‘Santosh’ was an East-n-West Movies presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan. Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. It has Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pichoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar, and others. Story of ‘Santosh’ is written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by VV Kamat (assisted by Ashok Naik).

This movie has seven songs written by Santosh Anand (six songs) and Manoj Kumar (one song). Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal. I have earlier mentioned the details of the songs of this movie in my previous posts, so I am not going to repeat them again here.

As mentioned above today’s song is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle and on screen it is lip-synced by Manoj Kumar and Hema Malini. This song is a nice duet to watch and listen.

Let us enjoy this beautiful song now …

Bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon

Song – Bataao Tumhen Pyaar Kaise Karoon (Santosh) (1989) Singers – Asha Bhosle, Nitin Mukesh, Lyrics – Santosh Anand, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
bina bole hothon ka hilna hai kya
mujhe inka matlab to samjhaaiye
khayaalon mein phoolon ka khilna hai kya
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
mujhe ghut ke marne ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe ae …

bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin
main jaisa bhi hoon
haan
jaisa bhi hoon
saamne hoon khadaa aa
mujhe kuchh chhupaane ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin

ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
ye aankhon se aankhon ka milna hai kya
bina bole hothon ka hilna hai kya
mujhe inka matlab to samjhaaiye
khayaalon mein phoolon ka khilna hai kya
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
na yun chup raho mujhko aawaz do
mujhe ghut ke marne ki aadat nahin

mujhe itni fursat mili hai kahaan
mujhe itni fursat mili hai kahaan
jo padhta tumhaare nayan ki ghazal
mujhe aaj lagta hai sach maan lo
ye chehra nahin hai gulaabi kamal 
ye dil kaise chori kiya jaayega
ye dil kaise chori kiya jaayega
mujhe dil churaane ki aadat nahin

aa aa aa
aa aa aa
aa aa aa aa

mujhe kuchh huaa hai pataa hai tumhe
badi nam hawaa hai pataa hai tumhe
badan jal rahaa hai ragon mein magar
lahu jam gaya hai pataa hai tumhe*
lo sar jhuk gaya hai tumhe kya khabar
lo sar jhuk gaya hai tumhe kya khabar
mujhe sar jhukaane ki aadat nahin
main jaisa bhi hoon
haan
jaisa bhi hoon
saamne hoon khadaa aa
mujhe kuchh chhupaane ki aadat nahin
bataao tumhe pyaar kaise karoon
mujhe pyaar karne ki aadat nahin

[Author’s Note: * In the video version these lines are in the voice of Asha Bhonsle, while the audio version has them in Nitin Mukesh’s voice.]

‘Santosh’ (1989) was an East-n-West Movies presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan. Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. Story of ‘Santosh’ was written by Kaushal Bharti. Editing of this movie was done by VV Kamat (assisted by Ashok Naik). Cinematography was done by Rajan Kinagi. The movie was passed by Censor board on 28.02.1989.

The star cast of the film includes Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pinchoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar, and others.

This movie has seven songs written by two lyricists. Santosh Anand wrote six songs and Manoj Kumar contributed one song. Following is the list of songs of this movie.

Sl. No. Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Posted On the blog
01 Are Logon Tumhe Kya Hai Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar
02 Bataao Tumhen Pyaar Kaise Karoon Santosh Anand Nitin Mukesh, Asha Bhonsle
03 Kahkahon Ke Liye Santosh Anand Mahendra Kapoor
04 Yoon Lagne Lagi Aajkal Zindagaani Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar, Nitin Mukesh 27.06.2018
05 Aaj Main Bechain Hoon Santosh Anand Mahendra Kapoor, chorus 09.01.2022
06 Bansi Waale Ne Gher Lai Santosh Anand Lata Mangeshkar
07 Tera Allah Beli Manoj Kumar Mahendra Kapoor, chorus

So far as I remember this movie didn’t perform well at the box office then and even forgotten also. But this movie had some good songs, or in fact, all songs in this movie are good songs to listen. Music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Though I had not watched this movie then in 1989-90. I am not sure if it was released at all in theatres. I do not remember correctly now. I watched some part of it online in 2018. However, one song from this movie “Yoon Lagne Lagi Aajkal Zindagaani” was in my memory since long. And later one of my friends who also liked this song refreshed its memory. So, when I came into the contact with this blog, I shared this song and later represented it with a post here. Subsequently I listened to all the songs in this movie and liked them very much as they have a nice poetry content in them. I have all of them ready and noted with men since long. Another song from this movie “Aaj Main Bechain Hoon” was posted on the blog on 09.01.2022.

As mentioned above lyrics for as many as six songs in this movie were written by Santosh Anand. Today 5th March, 2022 is the birth anniversary of Santosh Anand (born on 5th March, 1940, some sources have mentioned the year of his birth wrongly as 1929 or 1939?).

Santosh Anand has written some of the memorable songs in Hindi Films. And he went on to receive appreciation as well as awards. However, in personal life destiny has not been so kind with him as he lost his son and daughter in law, and later due to bad economic condition he has to suffer a lot. Old age ailments and his deteriorating health condition have made his life difficult further. And that is how it happens with many around us, but life goes on …

Today I present the third song from this movie, which is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and on screen Rakhee is lip-syncing and performing his song. We can also see Manoj Kumar, Hema Malini, Prem Chopra, and others in the picturization of this song. From the picturization of the song we can guess that Manoj Kumar and Rakhee are working at a construction site. The picturization is typical for a Manoj Kumar movie where the characters are going through lot of emotions.

When I had first shared this song to Atul ji, I had mentioned the following

THIS IS FOR THE RAKHEE fans, because I think even, they have forgotten this movie or the movie itself is a forgotten movie,

(Because on AVA ji’s post on Rakhi’s birthday – “Jab Tum Ho Mere Humsafar Khoobsurat” none of the commentors mentioned about this movie)

The song is a typical ‘Manoj Kumar’ type movie song. After ‘ROTI KAPADA Aur MAKAAN’ he tried to recreate that magic in every movie but failed. (and still luckily got ‘TWO’ women loving him in every movie),

Let us now listen to the song which is composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal and the tune is a catchy one and the music is quite enjoyable and so are the lyrics by Santosh Anand.

# The Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 4 # Nitin Mukesh #
———————————————–———————————–——————

Welcome all to this fourth article in this series where we are discussing the ‘special voices of the seventies’ and the nostalgia and memories associated with the songs of these ‘special voices’ from Hindi Movies.

As Gulzar Sahab has said in one of his famous albums. . .

door kahin jab wo pahaad ka tilaa baadlon se dhhak jaata tha
to ek aawaaz sunaayi deti

Zaahir si baat hain ki umr ke jis padaav par aap honge, aur jo yaadein aapke zehan mein bas gayin hongi, aap ko bhi kuchh aawaazein sunaayi deti hongi, aur ho sakta hai unka andaaz shaayad kuchh alag sa hota hoga, jaise ki mujhe lagta hai ki ye aawaaz. . .

Noorie. . .     Noorie. . .

Lekin ye aawaaz to mere dil ki gehraaiyon mein tab se hi utar gayi thi. . .

Since, and so far, I vaguely remember to have heard this song playing on the radio in home and too on a dark rainy night. Maybe I was in half sleep when this song was playing on radio. Even today whenever I get to listen to this song, I have the same nostalgic feeling always

teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein
kuchh dekha hamne, kya dekha

May be that time I didn’t even have this knowledge of who was singing but as I grew up and this voice also grew up over the years leaving behind very few yet unforgettable gems in the history of HFM. The most popular of them all, I think, must be this,

zindagi kin aa toote ladi ee
pyaar kar le ghadi do ghadi

Yes!! Today we are discussing Nitin Mukesh under this series of ‘Special Voices’. As I took this journey through his biography and filmography (or discography), as usual, I am filled with ‘nostalgia’ and the years and those songs which brings back many memories. Maybe he has sung very less songs in numbers but almost all of them are so special and unique that one cannot forget them easily.

Nitin Mukesh was born on 27th June, 1950, to a celebrity father who by then had established himself in HFM. There were days he saw his father struggling and they didn’t have enough money to pay even his school fees. And on the other hand, Mukesh, who unlike him wanted that his children get good higher education, sent Nitin to the London School of Economics. However, like his father Nitin was also not interested and not good in studies and hence requested his father to allow him to come back home and leave studies and pursue singing. There after Nitin used to accompany his father on all of his musical tours and stage programmes. He was doing this since he was nine.

As his father Mukesh used sing his own songs in these programmes he asked his son that he should sing other singers’ or specifically Rafi Saab’s songs. Nitin Mukesh remembering this has talked about how great his father was and how much both of them respect and loved Rafi Saab’s singing. It is said that Raj Kapoor wanted that Mukesh’s son should sing a song for his son Rishi in the movie ‘Mera Naam Joker’ (1970) and so Nitin had given his voice for Rishi Kapoor in this song.

Earlier Nitin Mukesh was mainly interested in singing and doing stage programmes only, however on insistence from his father he took on to singing in his movies and thus make a debut in singing with this song from ‘Dhuen Ki Lakeer’ (1974), a duet with Vani Jairam,

teri jheel si gehri aankhon mein
kuchh dekha hamne, kya dekha

Moving forward with Gaapoochi Gaapoochi Gam Gam’ (‘Trishul’, 1978) and ‘Wo Aurat hai tu mehbooba’ from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ also of 1978. And reaching the popular heights with Zindagi ki naa toote ladi’ in ‘Kranti’ (1981). He continued the same magic with two songs from the movie ‘Nakhuda-1981’ of which “Suno Ik Baat Bolen” is already posted on the blog. After that very few playback songs, as I think he mainly got involved with doing stage shows only and singing ‘bhajans’.

During those years I was in Kota (Rajasthan) and I had bought his album on cassette, ‘Nehanjali’ by HMV which had ‘bhajans’ composed by Shekhar Sen. This album was released in 5/89 and it was added to my collection on 28.10.1989 (may be around ‘Diwali’ festival, if I am correct).

However the songs of ‘Eeshwar’ (1989) especially “Ram ji Ne Dhanush Toda”  and one song in particular from the movie ‘Clerk’ (1989) – “Rakh Gita Par Haath”, are those which were quite good and were appreciated well, with ‘Ye Paisa Bolta Hai” from ‘Kaala Baazaar’ being the most popular. Other favorites that I want to list are – “Tu Mujhe Suna Main Tujhe Sunaaun’ from ‘Chaandni’ (1989), and ‘So Gaya Ye Jahaan’  topping the popularity charts in the previous year of 1988. Among his other songs I like ‘Zindagi Ka Naam Dosti’ from ‘Khudgarz’ (1987}, and “Dil Ne Dil Se Kya Kahaa” from ‘Aaina’ (1993). However, as said earlier Nitin Mukesh had been continuing with his stage shows, and we can find the details of his latest tours on his website here.

On our blog so far, we have only four of Nitin Mukesh songs (all duets) posted. Out of the many of his songs that are yet to make it on the blog, and taking a ‘liberty’ for this series I have selected a song not from the decade of 1971-80 but, for this today’s post I have selected a ‘very special and lovely song’ from a 1989 movie, for this today’s special day too. This is a song from the 1989 movie ‘Santosh’, which is also making a debut on the blog today.

This song was lying dormant in my memory and got revived in 2010-2011, after many years, during a discussion with a friend.

Thereafter, when I joined this blog as a ‘lyrics contributor’ I had shared this song with Atul ji in 2012. In fact, thereafter I have shared all the songs of this movie with him. However they are yet to be posted. It is opportune that Nitin Mukesh’s birth anniversary is on 27th June’ which incidentally is a ‘special day’ for me too. 🙂

‘Santosh-1989’ was an East-n-West Movies presentation. It was produced and directed by Balbir Wadhawan. Hansraj Wadhawan was the production controller of this movie. The star cast includes Manoj Kumar, Rakhee, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Prem Chopra, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Amjad Khan, Madan Puri, Sarika, Abhi Bhattacharya, Krishna Dhawan, Pichoo Kapoor, Om Shivpuri, Praveen Kumar and others.

A brief about this movie from IMDB is reproduced here below;

Cold-hearted and manipulative Kamla has fallen in love with a poor man and marries him and has a child named Santosh. She soon realizes that life is not fun living in poverty, and abandons her child and husband, and returns back to her father and his wealth. She re-marries millionaire Kailashpathi, and has a child named Kundan from him. Years pass by, Kundan and Santosh have both grown up. Kundan is the owner of the mill with his mom, while Santosh is a struggling mill worker, and a union leader. A confrontation ensues between the mill and the workers, and Kamla is able to negotiate a settlement and get the workers back to work. But then, she fails to keep her promise to the workers. Santosh opposes this, and she sets her goons and Kundan against him. Santosh is abducted and held prisoner by Kamla and Kundan, and the only way he can be released is when he compromises with them.

The today’s song is a duet song sung by Nitin Mukesh and Lata Mangeshkar. On screen it is lip-synced by Manoj Kumar and Herma Malini respectively, while many other artists are present and can be seen in the picturization of this song. One can easily spot Sarika in this crowd of party-goers.

hmm hmm hmm hmm
yoon lagne lagi
hmm hmm hmm

hmm hmm hmm
zindgaani

yoon lagne lagi aaj kal zindgaani
ke jaise kahin chhod aaye jawaani

yoon lagne lagi aaj kal zindgaani
yoon lagne lagi aaj kal zindgaani
ke jaise kahin chhod aaye jawaani

yoon lagne lagi aajkal zindgaani

kahaan se kahaan aa gaye chalte chalte
kahaan se kahaan aa gaye chalte chalte
ke dil ban gayaa
haan
ke dil ban gayaa dard ki rajdhaani
yoon lagne lagi aaj kal zindgaani

badi cheez hai pyaar mein doob jaana
badi cheez hai pyaar mein doob jaana
badi baat hai
haan
badi baat hai roop ki meherbaani
yoon lagne lagi aajkal zindgaani

la laa aa
la laa aa aa
la laa aa
aa aa aa

chalo pyaar ki aag mein jal ke dekhen
chalo pyaar ki aag mein jal ke dekhen
bahot ho chuki zindagi
zindagi paani paani
yoon lagne lagi aajkal zindgaani

kabhi kya kisine suni dhyaan dekar
kabhi kya kisine suni dhyaan dekar
tumhaari zubaani
hamaari. . .
hamaari kahaani
yoon lagne lagi aaj kal zindgaani

o o o o o
ho ho o o o o

bade pyaar se sun rahaa hai zamaana
(bade pyaar se sun rahaa hai zamaana)
bade pyaar se sun rahaa hai zamaana
hamaari zubaani tumhaari
tumhaari kahaani
yoon lagne lagi aajkal zindagaani

ho la la la laa laa laa laa laa laa aa

kabhi ek santosh hota tha shaayar
kabhi ek santosh hota tha shaayar
(aa aa aa aa aa aa)
ghazal ban gayi haan
ghazal ban gayi
haaye
uski kahaani
yoon lagne lagi aaj kal zindgaani
ke jaise kahin chhod aaye jawaani
yoon lagne lagi aaj kal zindgaani
(yoon lagne lagi aaj kal zindgaani)
zindgaani
zindgaani
zindgaani

हम्म हम्म हम्म हम्म
यूं लगने लगी
हम्म हम्म हम्म
आज कल
हम्म हम्म हम्म
जिंदगानी

यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी
के जैसे कहीं छोड़ आये जवानी

यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी
यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी
के जैसे कहीं छोड़ आये जवानी

यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी

कहाँ से कहाँ आ गए चलते चलते
कहाँ से कहाँ आ गए चलते चलते
के दिल बन गया
हाँ
के दिल बन गया दर्द कि राजधानी
यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी

बड़ी चीज़ है प्यार में डूब जाना
बड़ी चीज़ है प्यार में डूब जाना
बड़ी बात है
हाँ
बड़ी बात है रूप कि मेहरबानी
यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी

ल ला आ
ल ला आ आ
ल ला आ
आ आ आ

चलो प्यार कि आग में जलके देखे
चलो प्यार कि आग में जलके देखे
बहोत हो चुकी ज़िन्दगी
ज़िन्दगी पानी पानी
यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी

कभी क्या किसीने सुनी ध्यान देकर
कभी क्या किसीने सुनी ध्यान देकर
तुम्हारी जुबानी
हमारी
हमारी कहानी
यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी

ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ
हो हो ओ ओ ओ ओ ओ

बड़े प्यार से सुन रहा है ज़माना
(बड़े प्यार से सुन रहा है ज़माना)
बड़े प्यार से सुन रहा है ज़माना
हमारी जुबानी तुम्हारी
तुम्हारी कहानी
यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी

हो ल ल ल ला ला ला ला ला ला आ

कभी एक संतोष होता था शायर
कभी एक संतोष होता था शायर
(आ आ आ आ आ आ )
ग़ज़ल बन गयी हाँ
ग़ज़ल बन गयी
हाय
उसकी कहानी

यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी
के जैसे कहीं छोड़ आये जवानी
यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी
यूं लगने लगी आज कल ज़िंदगानी
ज़िंदगानी
ज़िंदगानी
ज़िंदगानी
