Blog Day : 3720 Post No. : 14655

My affair with Tanuja (one of the many that I had during my school years) started when I first saw her in a film on Doordarshan. If I remember correctly, it was ‘Bahaaren Phir Bhi Aayengi’ from 1966. The song was “Aapke Haseen Rukh . . .”. The way this song is filmed, Tanuja looks such a pretty enchanting young lady, as the camera pans in on her with sunlight behind, the rays of the sun diffracting from her open tresses. At that time, I did not even know her name. Just that face, and the vision of sunlight reflecting from her hair, and I lost my heart to her.

Next meeting with her was probably ‘Jewel Thief’ (1967). Being a supporting role, she was on the screen much lesser than the leading lady. And I still did not know her name – I had not yet learnt to remember the names in the credits at the beginning of the film and then mapping them to the actual people who appeared on the screen.

The encounters were infrequent; but the enchantment would continue for some more time, occasionally reinforced by chance photos in Filmfare or Madhuri magazines, and songs in Chitrahaar. It would be much, much later that I would pick up the earlier threads with films like ‘Hamaari Yaad Aayegi’ (1961), ‘Mem Didi’ (1961), ‘Benazir’ (1964) and ‘Nai Umar Ki Nai Fasal’ (1965), ‘Anubhav’ (1971), ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’ (1971), ‘Door Ka Raahi’ (1971) and ‘Do Chor’ (1972). In the contemporary mode, I met her again in ‘Imtihaan’ (1972) and ‘Hamraahi’ (1974). And fell in love all over again with “O Mere Dil Ke Chain. . .” – ‘Mere Jeevan Saathi’ (1972); while still struggling to get into my teens. 🙂

Tanuja – the naughty, sometimes ferocious, playful, mischievous – an incisive smile and a twinkling gleam in the eyes. The best image in the mind is when she makes changes to her household in ‘Anubhav’, and Sanjeev Kumar comes home from work, and she opens the door, grabs him by his necktie and pulls him behind her into the house. Or her first encounter with Vinod Khanna in ‘Imtihan’ and she drenches him by mistake, with the garden hose. Many such images overflow in the mind – including the startling somewhat senior role of Padmini Kolhapure’s elder sister in law in ‘Prem Rog’ (1982). That was sure a let down to the discerning teen-end mind, who believed that Tanuja could never, would never grow up from her impish presence. A teen-age heart shattered, and a puppy love story spun off into oblivion. 😦  🙂

Tanuja – the second daughter of Shobhna Samarth, and younger sister of Nutan, was born in Bombay on 23rd Sep, 1943. Into the films as a child artist by 1950, she made her maiden appearance as Nutan’s younger sister on screen in ‘Hamari Beti’ (1950). She continued to appear in films as a child artist. Her first senior romantic role was in 1961 – Kedar Sharma’s film ‘Hamari Yaad Aayegi’. And then a progressive career that continues to be active till the present time. She is 75 years (as of yesterday).

A grand happy birthday to Tanuja, as I remember my puppy crush on her with the lines I used to hum for her – “Yaari Ho Gai Yaar Se Lak Tunu Tunu”. 😀

You wouldn’t believe it, but I was totally unaware till the time yesterday as I started checking out the available material on her life and career, that she is Kajol’s mother. You can call me anything, but that is the fact that is. 😀

In my opinion, the film ‘Gustaakhi Maaf’ (1969) is one of the best comedies of Hindi screen. I saw this film for the first time on Doordarshan (what else), sometimes in second half of 1970s. Tanuja in a double role, paired opposite to Sanjeev Kumar and Sujit Kumar, playing two artist brothers in the film, who own a photo studio shop.

The film’s twin role is Tanuja’s handiwork. Twin sisters separated at childbirth. One remains in the town, and the second one is taken away to another destination. Fate would have it, that after twenty years, the sister living away, returns to visit this town. In the town, the other sister is already quite fitfully romantically involved with Sujit Kumar, the elder of the two brothers. The appearance of the twin sister of course creates numerous hilarious problems, but the high point comes when the out of town sister falls for Sanjeev Kumar, the younger brother. These scenes are some of the best in the film – Tanuja is trying to woo Sanjeev Kumar out of genuine interest, and Sanjeev is horrified and appalled that his future sister-in-law, and the bride to be of his elder brother, is playing romantic hooky with him. With nobody the wiser, the situation creates confusions galore, as all well wishers get together and carry off the in-town sister to a mental asylum in a straight jacket, believing whole heartedly that the young lady is struck with the split personality syndrome. And when the senior doctor at the asylum turns out to be V Gopal, one can imagine what twists and turns the situations will take. By a directorial intervention, the out of town sister also appears at the asylum – she is in search of someone else. With both the twins now present in the hospital, and everyone still unaware of what the crux of the problem is, it does carry all the ingredients to carry the situation towards a hilarious climax extremum. Happy ending of course, all sorted out and the two brothers get twin sister wives.

The song presented with this post is from the passage that the out of town sister is trying to woo Sanjeev Kumar, who is completely convinced that his future sister in law is making an ‘illegal‘ pass at him. The lady wants a portrait to be done in a scenic setting. Convinced that his future sis in law has lost it, Sanjeev tries to humour her by going along with the charade. But once reaching the scenic spot, when the lady breaks into a song of longing, that is too much for Sanjeev, and he tries to wriggle his way out of the situation.

Seriously, if you have not yet watched this film, then add it your list of things to do before departing from the planet. Till about a couple of years ago, this film was extremely unavailable, and a rare possession. But today, it is available on YT, so the rarity angle is gone. However, the humorous confusions angle is still the prime draw for this film.

Song is written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, with music by Sapan Jagmohan. Singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. And the fun part is watching Tanuja’s antics and expressions as she, armed with this song, tries to take on the fortifications of a bewildered young man. A real treat to watch.

Many happy returns of the day, Tanuja ji – may the laughter never cease.

With this writeup, the blog now has 4000 movies represented in the blog.

Blog Day :

3716 Post No. : 14646 Movie Count :

4000

We in this blog often reach milestones that I describe as “artificial” milestones. These are “artificial” in the sense that we can only be aware of them if we keep track of them. Earlier we were not aware of them.

For instance, the blog has crossed 3700 days of existence. We first became aware of this kind of milestone only on the occasion of the blog reaching 3400 days.

Ever since, we have also had “milestones” like a pair of singers reaching centuries of their duets. For instance, we recently reached 500 duets of Rafi-Asha Bhonsle.

YIPPEE movies and Debutant movies also yield such milestones to us. We reached 1000 YIPPEE movies in the blog and subsequently 1100 YIPPEE movies.

The present milestone pertains to debutant movies. So far we have reached 3999 movies in the blog. This writeup introduces the 4000th movie to the blog. Yes, the blog, with this song, now has songs from exactly 4000 movies.

In the blog, we have songs from every year, beginning from the earliest year (1931) to the latest viz. the current year (2018).

With this song, the blog now has songs from 4000 movies. while most movies are Hindi movies, we also have some songs from other languages, viz regional languages/ dialects movies and even some international movies. Then there are some movies which were either unreleased or whose year of release are not known. The number of such movies being 78.

The decade of 1950s is the most well represented decade in the blog. 1111 movies were released in this decade (from 1951 to 1960) and there were 35 unreleased movies as well in this decade. As many as 1014 movies from this decade are represented in the blog. 1960s is the second most well represented blog. As many as 842 movies (out of 929 movies released this decade, plus 31 unreleased movies and 34 regional movies)are showcased in the blog.

Titles of these movies begin with all letters of Roman Alphabet except X. The letter S is the most common letter in this respect. As many as 489 movies had their titles beginning with S. A comes second with 390 movie titles.

In the earlier years of the blog, we were not keeping track of such matters. It was sometime in july 2016 that our beloved Khyati Bhatt, after receiving her set of HFGK carried out a thorough research on the movies of 1960s. She prepared an excel sheet and shared that with me and Sudhir Jee. That excel sheet had details about the number of movies of 1960s represented in the blog and the number of movies (with their details) that were missing. That was the homework given to Sudhir Jee. That excel sheet mentioned the fact that there were 942 movies in the decade and 695 of them were represented in the blog. So 238 movies of that decade were missing from the blog.

That excel sheet was made and shared with us on 19 july 2016 (8th birthday of the blog). And how well Sudhir Jee coped with this homework. He tracked songs of many of these elusive movies of 1960s and kept introducing these movies to the blog. Now, a little over two years later, we have 843 movies of 1960s represented in the blog. So as many as 139 elusive movies of 1960s have been introduced in the blog after july 2016. Credit goes to Khyati Jee for her research work and then to Sudhir Jee for following up on that research work with his own mission of locating the songs of these elusive movies.

This also gave me an idea that I on my own should carry out similar exercises for the other decades as well. That led to my own excel sheet where I began to keep track of movies of particular years that were covered in the blog and that had not been covered. This list turned out to of great help for me in looking for specific movies, and that made my searches more focused and purposeful.

It was as a result of this exercise that I was aware of the fact that the blog was reaching 3400th song from the decade of 1960s when the blog was on the verge of reaching 3400 days of its existence. That is how I was able to coincide these two rare and special occurences by posting the 3400th song post of 1960s on 3400th day of the blog.

Now, after this focussed exercise of introducing “debutant” movies in the blog on a regular manner, we have reached a stage when introducing more movies from 1950s and 1960s has become tough. 99 movies of 1960s and 134 movies of 1950s are now left to be covered and these movies are not easy to locate. As for earlier decades, availability of movies from these decades is even more limited. 1238 movies were made in 1940s and this blog now has 761 of them. My guess is that we may end up with a figure just above 800 for this decade before we find ourselves unable to locate any more “new” movies from the decade.

As for the decade of 1930s, 177 movies are represented in the blog. Some 931 movies were made in that decade but more than 700 of these movies along with their songs are lost forever, so in effect majority of songs available from the decade of 1930s are already showcased in the blog.

That leaves the decade of 1970s and also beyond as the decades from where most of our remaining unrepresented movies will have to come. !970s was the last decade of the golden era of HFM. It was the decade when I grew up. This decade saw 1327 movies being released. The blog so far has 769 movies of this decade in the blog.

I have decided to go for a “new” movie as the 4000th movie in the blog. This movie is from 1980s though the song itself was recorded in the decade of 1970s. In other words, it is a golden era song which was released after the golden era of HFM was over.

The movie is “Videsh”(1984). It was produced by Sheetal S Johal and Avatar Bhogal and directed by Avtar Bhogal ABC Films International. The movie had Mahendra Sandhu, Shoma Anand, Diljeet Kaur, Iftikhar, Urmila Bhatt, Sudhir, Surendra Nath, Tom Gormley, Sam, Harmeet Singh, Sukhwant Dhadha, Rajendr Kumar Sharma, Surendra Malhotra and above all Prem Kishan. 🙂 and Premnath, with friendly appearances by Satyen Kappu, Chaand Usmani, guest appearance by Paintal. Avatar Bhogal, Seetal S Johal.

The movie had five songs in it. This song is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog ofcourse. The song is a picturised as a get together song cum marriage reception song. The song is sung by Rafi and Pankaj Mitra. Sapan Jagmohan composed the music. This movie had two lyricists (Kulwant Jani and Prem Jallandhari)but the disribution of songs among them is not known.

The song is lip synced by Prem Kishan (in Rafi’s voice) and Mahendra Sandhu (in disguise- I hope I have identified him correctly) in Pankaj Mitra’s voice.

He looks like an ugly version of Rishi Kapoor- that is what a comment in YT says. The commentator may not be aware that this resemblance in not a coincidence. This actor and Rishi Kapoor are sons of siblings. Rishi Kapoor is the son of Krishna Kapoor where as Prem Kishan is the son of Premnath (brother of Krishna Kapoor). So Prem Kishan and Rishi Kapoor are cousins. And that is where this resemlance comes from. Prem Kishan may not have become as successful as his cousin, but let us not forget that he too had his moments in Hindi movies. He was the hero of the blockbuster Rajshree Productions movie “Dulhan Wahi Jo Piya Man Bhaaye”(1977) and the famous song, Khushiyaan hi khushiyaan hon daaman mein jiske was picturised on him.

So, here is this forgotten gem of a song from 1980s. With this song, “Videsh”(1984) makes its debut in the blog and becomes the 4000th movie to get introduced in the blog. The song also has a slower, sad version, whose lyrics are not different from the longer happy version. Both versions are included below.

Today is 3716th day for the blog. 4000 movies in 3716 days means that we on an average introduce one “new” movie to the blog daily. Quite a decent rate, I would think.

PS-The Punjabi words sung by Pankaj Mitra and noted by me may not be accurate. So I request our Punjabi knowing regulars to suggest corrections in the lyrics as applicable.

Blog Day : 3692 Post No. : 14606

27th August – a traveling tour, a distant land, and an unexpected loss; a loss that is as numbing even today, as shattering as it was when it happened then. 1976, and a hotel in Detroit, USA. The soul of the voice and the voice of the soul – both were stilled forever. A life of just 53 years. And a singing career that was wonderfully placed. Both cut short by the matters of the heart – matters that could not be set right.

Today, we remember Mukesh, through his songs, in an effort to re-live the times. And to enjoy the listening pleasure that this voice still continues to be forty two years after his departure.

Mahesh ji’s wonderful selection “Yahaan Radha Kund Hai Shyam Kund Hai” from an obscure film ‘Subhash Chandra’ has already posted earlier in the day today. Here is one more song in the memory of this soulful voice.

The film is ‘Aayega Aanewaala’ from 1967. This film is produced and directed by Kewal Misra for his home company, Kewal Productions, Bombay. The list of actors reads as follows – Kumkum, Sanjeev Kumar, Sabita Chatterjee, Ram Mohan, Kundan, Rajan Haksar, Chaman Puri, Uma Khosla, Ravi Khanna, Bela Bose, Khairati, and Agha.

There are six songs in this film, all written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and the music is composed by the duo of Sapan Jagmohan. One song of this film has already been posted here. This is the second song coming on board.

The filming location for this song is Simla (in Himachal Pradesh) – a very scenic and a popular vacation resort, right from the pre-independence days. The song is picturized as what appears to be a picnic song. Sanjeev Kumrar is wooing and teasing Kum Kum, telling her that he is a seasoned player, and that he is not easily perturbed.

The song is a lively, playful song. In the voice of Mukesh, it becomes more endearing. The voice suits all types of emotions – even naughty playfulness. Listen and enjoy.

Song – Hum Wo Nahin Jo Aapke Kadmon Mein Dil Ko Rakh Den (Aayega Aanewaala) (1967) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

aise na hamen tum dekho
chehre se zulf hata ke
aise na hamen tum dekho
chehre se zulf hata ke
teri nazar ka raaz hain hum
bade zamaana saaz hain hum
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

hothon pe phool hansi ke
aankhon mein hayaa ka sagar
hothon pe phool hansi ke
aankhon mein hayaa ka sagar
badi haseen hain ye adaayen
kaho hamen na aazmaayen
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

tauba ye shokh jawaani
rangeen qayaamat ho tum
tauba ye shokh jawaani
rangeen qayaamat ho tum  
tumhen kasam hai maan jaao
hamen ye tewar na dikhaao
kyon ke zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

hum wo nahin to aapke
kadmon mein dil ko rakh den
hum ne zamaana dekha hai
hum ne zamaana dekha hai

Blog Day : 3669 Post No. : 14546

Less than a week ago, we remembered our beloved Rafisaab on his death anniversary.
Today happens to the birth anniversary of another of our beloved legends, Kishore Kumar (popularly referred to as Kishoreda). So we very fondly remember him today and pay tribute to him.

Both Rafisaab and Kishoreda died when just in their 50s – both of them could have easily gone for many more years. But life and death matters are not in our hands – we can only thank them for what they have given us, the legacy they have left behind for generations to relish.

As with Rafisaab, I have written a lot about Kishoreda already on this blog. I am extremely fond of him – as I have said many times, it is never a competition for me between artistes. This isn’t an Olympics event where if one has to get gold, the other can at best aspire for silver.

I remember a poll in the late 70s, where people had to vote on who was the better singer, Kishoreda or Rafisaab. I don’t remember who came up with the poll but those were times when Kishoreda was the reigning star. He himself felt so embarrassed by this poll that he conveyed his unhappiness at it and it ended.

Professional rivalry apart, Kishoreda and Rafisaab had great respect for each other and were actually very good friends. Amit Kumar, Kishoreda’s son, has narrated stories about their friendship. So all this petty thinking is in the minds of people and not those who are the topic of discussion.

Personally, I have always stayed away from discussions trying to pull down one artiste to make the other look better. Thankfully, the world of music is like an ocean – it has room for everyone to contribute to, and partake of, its treasures.

Amongst the artistes, sure, there might be competition to be better than the other – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It only makes one strive to be better.

I remember Laxmikant-Pyarelal saying that if RD Burman came out with a hit album, L-P wanted to do better with their next. And RD had the same competitive spirit. But it was never malicious, or to run down the other.

As music lovers, we benefit from this – we get the best of all worlds.

Now let me talk a little bit more about Kishoreda since this post is a tribute to him.

Where do I start?

With his singing of course.

I am fond of Kishore Kumar the actor too. I’ve seen many of his comedy films of the 50s and 60s.

I am also much-impressed by Kishore Kumar, the producer/director. Contrary to his image of being more of a prankster and comedian, his films Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein (1964) and Door Ka Raahi (1971) are thought-provoking, sensitive, films with depth. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to see a different side of Kishore Kumar.

I am also impressed by Kishore Kumar the composer. He composed almost entirely only for his own films – and did a wonderful job at it.

Considering he was also the writer for his own films, it gives us an idea of what a brilliant all-rounder he was. It is hard enough to do one job, but to do so many so effortlessly requires genius.

And Kishoreda definitely qualifies for this. Much like Sir Gary Sobers, former West Indian cricketer, who, as an all-rounder, could do practically anything on a cricket field.

And yet, despite all this, what Kishoreda will be best-remembered for, and what he absolutely excelled in, was as a singer.

Which is why I would like to discuss more about his singing now.

I’ve said this many times before – I grew up with Kishoreda all around me. Those were the early 70s – and Kishoreda was everywhere. You had to live in that time to realize how much he dominated that period. Or, if you want evidence, just check Binaca Geet Mala lists and you will know.

I don’t need any such evidence – I know that every single day Kishoreda dominated song programmes on radio that were based on the latest Hindi film songs. The female voice might have been largely split between Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, but the male voice was Kishore, Kishore and Kishore.

It was often for Rajesh Khanna, but even when it wasn’t, it was Kishore. It could be Kishore for Shashi Kapoor (Sharmilee) or for Dharmendra (Blackmail) or for Jeetendra (Parichay) or Dev Anand (Gambler) but it was Kishore all the way.

Occasionally there’d be a male voice of a “new” song that was not Kishore. That song often stood out as an exception. It could be Rafisaab or Mukesh or Manna Dey. But it was always the exception, not the norm.

So THIS was the environment in which I grew up. My school classmates used to sing a lot of songs – they were invariably Kishore songs. In particular, I remember songs like “o mere dil ke chain” (which was my favourite at one time), “chalte chalte”, “o maajhi re” and “zindagi ke safar mein guzar jaate hain”.

But of course there were many more.

My own favourite would keep changing. I had this concept of a favourite song which I’d sing non-stop (driving others crazy) till another favourite took over.

I remember it was at one time “ye shaam mastaani”, then “sama hai suhaana suhaana”, then “jaane ja dhoondhta phir raha” took over, to be displaced by “o mere dil ke chain” (this was favourite for a very long time) and then “tere bina zindagi se koi” took over. There might have been others too, I can’t remember now. In between, there were umpteen songs that I’d sing while taking a break from my favourite. 🙂 Obviously, all to myself only – which is why I am still alive. 🙂

This post is already getting a bit long but I’ll mention one anecdote from school days. I was in 8th Standard. In those days, we’d often ask our teachers for a “free period” – sometimes a teacher would be nice enough to oblige. Boys would then go up to the front of the class and sing songs.

Once our English teacher gave us a “free period”. The best singer in the class, by name Prasad, went up to sing. Suddenly he announced “I’ll sing this song because it is Raja’s favourite”. Now I was quite a favourite of my teacher, maybe because I was reasonably good in English. She immediately looked at me – I am pretty sure she expected an “English” song. Maybe Carpenters or Rolling Stones, or Beatles, or some such group. She probably had that idea about me.

Prasad started singing “o mere dil ke chain”.

I could see the look on my teacher’s face. It was like she had been hit by a brick. A Hindi song? That too a film song? That too, a romantic song? Bhajan hota to phir bhi chal jaata. I turned red, and immediately averted my eyes, looking down throughout, hoping the earth would just open up and swallow me. I was sitting in the front row, right in front of her, so there was no place to hide. Prasad must have sung very well – he always did – but I couldn’t listen to one word. I was too busy lost in my own “misery” to pay attention to anything else.

Somehow I managed to survive – though I think my teacher never quite saw me the same way again. 🙂 Prasad has a lot to answer for. 🙂

Today, this anecdote suddenly came to mind as I was writing this post. Wonderful memories – of Kishore Kumar songs, enjoyed with my classmates in school.

The point is to emphasise how much of an influence Kishore Kumar had on me at that time. Rafisaab came into my life much later.

By the time the 1980s came along I could not keep track of the latest songs. Partly because I got busy, partly because I didn’t like where music was headed. (“Angrezi mein kehte hain” and “shaayad meri shaadi ka khayaal”, you know I’m looking at you :-)).
Anyway, it wasn’t Kishore’s fault. His voice was always a delight to listen to.

Now onto the song for today.

This is a song I’d never heard before till Avinashji brought it to my attention a few weeks ago. I’d never even heard of the film.

The original idea was to possibly post it as Kishoreda’s 1100th song on this blog, but since another song took that place, we are posting this as his birthday song. The lyrics are, as usual, by Avinashji.

The song is “geeton mein mere” from Geet Ganga (1982). The film itself makes its debut on this blog today.

It is a pleasant song which grows on me the more I listen to it. I have already listened to it quite a few times.

The lyrics, referring to songs flowing like the Ganga, have a nice feel to them. Anjaan, the lyricist, being a native of Varanasi, had his own style of lyrics, often bringing a Bhojpuri feel to them. And this song referring to the Ganga is in the tradition of other songs written by him which also refer to it – “Ganga kinaare waala”, “maano to main Ganga maa hoon”, “Ganga mein dooba” for example.

The song is picturised on Arun Govil, and as he “sings”, the words resonate with me.

jhoom ke aise ae
geet sunaaun
nafrat mein bhi preet jagaaun
dushman ko bhi meet banaaun
jo dil chhu le ae
geet wo gaaun
swarg utaaraa
saat suron mein bahe re jag saara

Lovely lines – and it is wonderful to listen to Kishore Kumar singing them. Indeed “jo dil chhu le, geet wo gaaun” suits him – he sang many songs that touched our heart.

I hope you like the song too.

On this note, I will end this post as it has already become somewhat long.

All I will say is, Kishore Kumar will always remain in our hearts as a very special person – one of a kind.

Thank you for everything, Kishoreda.

“Man Tera Tan Mera”(1971) was directed by B R Ishara for Nitin Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rehana Sultan, Anil Dhawan, Shatrughan Sinha, Manmohan Krishna, Asit Sen, Dulaari, Vivek, Johny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Pardesi, Nayantara, Abhijeet Sen, Ravi, Roopaali, Hameed, Shakeel, Madhumati, Anand Narula, S K Sinha, M abbas, C K Shetty, Ram Singh, Prakash, Satyendra, Jeetendra Sharma, R Khosla, Master Susheel, Rashmi (new discovery) and Rukhsana (new discovery) etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has been covered in the past.

Here is the second song from “Man Tera Tan Mera”(1971) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Mukesh. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

Only the audio of this song is available. Like most Mukesh songs, this song too bears the mdas touch of Mukesh, but this song somehow managed to end up becoming an obscure song. The fact that the movie failed at the box office obviously has to be the main reason why this song failed to get enough exposure among music lovers.


Song-Zindagi ke mod par ham tum miley aur kho gaye(Man Tera Tan Mera)(1971) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

zindagi ke mod par
hum tum miley aur kho gaye
ajnabi thhe aur phir ham ajnabi se ho gaye ae
zindagi ke mod par

pal do pal jazbaat ki ee
pal do pal jazbaat ki
lahron mein kitna josh tha
ek zara si der mein
toofaan ke dhaare kho gaye ae
kho gaye
zindagi ke mod par
hum tum miley aur kho gaye ae
zindagi ke mod par

dil ke har ek taar ne ae
dil ke har ek taar ne
kya jaaniye kya ?? hai
saaj chheda aur sabhi nagme pareshaan ho gaye ho gaye
zindagi ke mod par hum tum miley aur kho gaye
zindagi ke mod par

jis kadar nazdeek aaye
jis kadar nazdeek aaye
faasle badhte gaye ae
do musaafir kab miley hain
par pahuch kar kho gaye ae
kho gaye
zindagi ke mod par hum tum miley aur kho gaye
ajnabi thhe aur phir ham ajnabi se ho gaye ae
zindagi ke mod par

“Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) was produced by K L Baria and Johny Whisky and directed by B R Ishara for Varsha Films, Bombay. This “social”movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Sanjeev Kumar, Jairaj, Asit Sen, Sailesh Kumar, Johny Whiskey, Tarun Bose, Mohan Choti, Kumkum etc in it.

This obscure movie had six obscure songs in it.

Here is the first song from “Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Rafi. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

The song picturisation shows the hero (I guess he is Sailesh Kumar) lip syncing this teasing song to Kumkum. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the lip syncer.

With this song, “Gunaah Aur Kaanoon” (1970) makes its debut in the blog.

“Kaaghaz Ki Naao” (1975) was produced and directed by BR Ishara for BRI Arts, Bombay. The movie had Sarika and Raj Kiran (making their debuts as lead actors in grown up roles). The movie also had Pradeep Kumar, Aruna Irani, Helen, IS Johar, Paaro, Johnny Whisky, Dileep Dutt, Shyam Dubey, Amal Sen, Hamid, Asha Sharma, Rajni Verma, Hardeep, Maniyar, Arbind Dasgupta, Manhar Desai, Asit Sen, Manmohan Krishan, Reena Ghosh, Master Mitthoo etc. in it.

There were four songs in the movie. Three of these songs have been covered in the past.

Here are the details of the three songs already covered in the blog:-

Har janam mein hamaara milan 5050 22-Nov-11

Here is the fourth and final song from “Kaaghaz Ki Naao”(1975) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

The song is picturised as a mujra song on Aruna Irani and Pradeep Kumar.

With this song, “Kaaghaz Ki Naao”(1975) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

This song marks an “artificial”, but significant century for the blog. “Kaaghaz Ki Naao”(1975) becomes the 1100th movie that has been YIPPEED in the blog. To put things in perspective, 1100 movies constitutes some one fifth of all the movies that were released from 1931 till 1980. These 1100 movies had nearly 7100 songs in them, viz. 50 % of all the songs covered in the blog.

While some movies are easy to YIPPEE, if all their songs are all time classics and so readily available, majority of movies are such that at least one or two of their songs are rare and obscure. Searching for these songs can be a tall order. There are cases where the missing songs are not even available online. There are several instances where the missing songs of these movies had to be uploaded and made available online for the first time by us (read by Sudhir Ji).

One benefit of YIppying a movie is that we no longer have to search for songs of that movie. We can forget about these movies and concentrate of movies that are as yet unyippeed.

To take the example of the year 1959, 1959 saw as many as 114 movies getting released. 103 of these movies are represented in the blog. As many as 47 of these movies are already YIPPEED. This is the highest number of YIPPEED movies from one calender year. So in effect, now we only have to search for missing songs from 56 + 11 movies of 1959.

“Rajnigandha”(1974) was the first movie to be YIPPEED in the blog on 10 september 2008. We were not even aware of this fact on that date. 🙂 It was the only YIPPEED movie during 2008. 2009 saw another 8 movies getting YIPPEED. It is from 2012 that we consciously started thinking on YIPPYing movies. More that 10 movies each are being YIPPEED since 2012. As many as 202 movies were YIPPEED in 2013, which is the highest number of movies YIPPEED in a year.

This year 2018 has seen us YIPPYIng at least one movie every day. Till now we have YIPPEED 66 movies in 65 days of the year. We were on a similar new year resolution during the last year of 2017 as well. On that year we posted one YIPPEE every day till 5 may 2017, viz for 125 days, when that steak got broken on 6 may 2017. Let us see how long our unbroken streak of 2018 lasts. 🙂

The blog at present has songs from 3858 movies and we are adding one extra movie every day (which is another new year resolution with us). My guess is that all the songs may be available for around 2000 movies. It may not be possible for other movies to get YIPPEED because all songs of these movies are not available.

Time will show whether I am proved right or otherwise vis a vis final tally of YIPPEED movies in the blog. For now, let us celebrate having the 1100th YIPPEED movie in the blog.


Song-Na jaiyyo re sautan ghar sainyya (Kaaghaz ki Naao)(1975) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Only the audio seems to be available as of now. From the sounds of it, this song is bidaai song, and if my guess is correct, it must be a song playing in the background as the bride is given her send off from her baabul.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.


Song-Aaj sakhi main baabul ka ghar chhod chali (Kaaghaz Ki Naao)(1975) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

aaj sakhi ee
main baabul ka ghar chhod chali
aaj sakhi ee
main baabul ka ghar chhod chali
pi ki lagan mein
saare naate
saare bandhan tod chali
aaj sakhi ee
main baabul ka ghar chhod chali

bachpan beeta jahaan rang raliyon mein
aaj paraayi hoon main un galiyon mein
na main ladi na poora bol hi boli
kaahe sajaayi mori baabul doli
aaj sakhi ee
main baabul ka ghar chhod chali

dukh ye judaai ka tu hans hans ke sahna
ye hi to hai is nagri ki reet ri bahna
ro ke vida hote hain
hote hain jo bhi
jinko vida karna hai
rote hain wo bhi
aaj sakhi ee
main baabul ka ghar chhod chali

Missing Films of 1960s – 38
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Just take a quick look at the still visual of the video panel below. I am so sure you will recognize this enchanting young face. Yes, it is Tabassum, way back from 1966. And that is not the only captivating thing about this song.

The debut film of today is ‘Zimbo Finds A Son’. In the long tradition of ‘Zambo / Zimbo’ films, this is the 1966 version. This film comes from the house of Basant Pictures. Regulars will be familiar that Basant Pictures is part of Wadia group. The famous Nadia and the erstwhile he-man John Cawas were the regular stars of the stunt films produced by Basant Pictures.

The film is directed by John Cawas. The star cast is led by Azaad and Tabassum, and it includes Sherry, Sundar, Dalpat, Raj Malik, Yunus, Pedro, Bismillah, Korega, Yadav, Samson, Ismail, Muhammad, Indira, Prince Arjun, Master Sachin, Mitthu Mian, Babu, Rani etc.

HFGK lists 5 songs for this film. All the songs are penned by Naqsh Lyallpuri. The music is composed by the duo of Sapan Jagmohan. The availability of songs of this film is not an issue. All the five songs are quite available in audio, as well as in video format, as the original print of the filmi is very much available. Yes, Basant Pictures is a production house that has taken good care of their films.

When I heard the songs of this film in preparation for this post, I am hard put to select. All songs are quite wonderful and deserve better popularity. Today’s song is one such lilting loveable song – the singer is Asha Bhosle. The rendering is so zestful and so full of life. The words, the pace of the composition, the cheerful rendering – all come together so well. And they make the listener feel inside, the happiness that is being expressed by this song.

On screen, the song is performed by a very young, perky, sprightly and playful Tabassum. Her performance has so neatly captured the intent and the essence of the song. We also see Azaad in the clip, and we see a young boy, whose full face does not come in view of the camera. The list of actors includes the name of Master Sachin. It is possible this child actor can be Master Sachin, but I need confirmation help from other knowledgeable readers.

To mention – the list of Zimbo / Zambo films reads as follows

  1. Zambo, The Ape Man from 1937
  2. Zambo Ka Beta from 1939
  3. Zimbo from 1958
  4. Zimbo Ki Beti from 1959
  5. Zimbo Shehar Mein from 1960
  6. And this one – Zimbo Finds A Son, from 1966

Listen to this playful and energetic song that simply is oozing with happiness. And wonder, where have all these songs been, for so long a time.

Song – Gun Gun Gaaun Hawaa Mein Lehraaun  (Zimbo Finds A Son) (1966) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan
kaare kaare badra
baney hain mora kajra
hain jaagi jaagi aankhon mein sapne jawaan
gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan

hansta hua chaand mujhko mila
daaman mein ek phool aisa khila
hansta hua chaand mujhko mila
daaman mein ak phool aisa khila
hai jis mein bahaaron ki jaa..aa..aan
gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan
kaare kaare badra
baney hain mora kajra
hain jaagi jaagi aankhon mein sapne jawaan

rangon mein doobe nazaare hanse
kaliyon ke chanchal ishaare hanse
rangon mein doobe nazaare hanse
kaliyon ke chanchal ishaare hanse
mehakne laga hai samaa..aa..aan
gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan
kaare kaare badra
baney hain mora kajra
hain jaagi jaagi aankhon mein sapne jawaan

sapnon ki rimjhim mein naache hai mann
khiushiyon ki lehron pe thirke badan
sapnon ki rimjhim mein naache hai mann
khiushiyon ki lehron pe thirke badan
mili dhadkanon ko zubaa..aa..aan
gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan
kaare kaare badra
baney hain mora kajra
hain jaagi jaagi aankhon mein sapne jawaan
gun gun gaaun
hawaa mein lehraaun
main udi udi jaaun na jaane kahaan

गुन गुन गाउँ
हवा में लहराऊँ
मैं उड़ी उड़ी जाऊँ ना जाने कहाँ
कारे कारे बदरा
बने हैं मोरा कजरा
हैं जागी जागी आँखों में सपने जवां
गुन गुन गाउँ
हवा में लहराऊँ
मैं उड़ी उड़ी जाऊँ ना जाने कहाँ

हँसता हुआ चाँद मुझको मिला
दामन में एक फूल ऐसा खिला
हँसता हुआ चाँद मुझको मिला
दामन में एक फूल ऐसा खिला
है जिसमें बहारों की जा॰॰आ॰॰आं
गुन गुन गाउँ
हवा में लहराऊँ
मैं उड़ी उड़ी जाऊँ ना जाने कहाँ
कारे कारे बदरा
बने हैं मोरा कजरा
हैं जागी जागी आँखों में सपने जवां

रंगों में डूबे नज़ारे हँसे
कलियों के चंचल इशारे हँसे
रंगों में डूबे नज़ारे हँसे
कलियों के चंचल इशारे हँसे
महकने लगा है समा॰॰आ॰॰आं
गुन गुन गाउँ
हवा में लहराऊँ
मैं उड़ी उड़ी जाऊँ ना जाने कहाँ
कारे कारे बदरा
बने हैं मोरा कजरा
हैं जागी जागी आँखों में सपने जवां

सपनों की रिमझिम में नाचे है मन
खुशियों की रहरों पे थिरके बदन
सपनों की रिमझिम में नाचे है मन
खुशियों की रहरों पे थिरके बदन
मिली धड़कनों को ज़ुबा॰॰आ॰॰आं
गुन गुन गाउँ
हवा में लहराऊँ
मैं उड़ी उड़ी जाऊँ ना जाने कहाँ
कारे कारे बदरा
बने हैं मोरा कजरा
हैं जागी जागी आँखों में सपने जवां
गुन गुन गाउँ
हवा में लहराऊँ
मैं उड़ी उड़ी जाऊँ ना जाने कहाँ
