Blog 10-Year Challenge (2009-19) – Song No. 8
————————————————

When our dear Atul ji recently started an ‘innovative’ initiative under the ‘ten-year challenge’ or ‘Blog ten-year challenge’ I had mentioned it in my comments on the ‘first song’ in this series that, I would try to share lyrics if not articles as possible in this series. I had also mentioned that I could see a few opportunities for me in the coming days of this month. That was because I was browsing the posts of February’2009 on my own.

Today I have this opportunity to share a ‘song post’ under this series. And since its from ‘seventies’ I am happy to share it here.

Ten years back, on this day i.e. on 23rd February 2009, we had songs from the movies ‘Rajkumar-1964’, ‘Milan-1967’, ‘Chor Machaaye Shor-1974’, ‘Call Girl-1974’, ‘Badi Bahan-1949’, and ‘Dushman-1939’ posted on the blog. All the moves mentioned above, except ‘Call Girl-1974’ have already had all their songs posted on the blog and in turn achieved ‘Yippeeee’ ed status on the blog. 🙂

So, we have ‘Call Girl-1974’ remaining to be covered for all songs on the blog. And so far, only one song of this movie has been posted on the blog. And, I think that the one song posted was the only well-known song from the movie or we can say that the movie is identified with this one song only i.e. ‘ulfat me zamaane ki har rasm ko thukraao’ sung by Kishore Kumar.

However, when I was going through the songs available from this movie and song list of this movie in HFGK-Vol-V, I found that the above song is actually a ‘multiple version song’ sung by Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar. So, I am also sharing the Lata Version for this song separately and requesting Atul ji to kindly update it in the post please. This song was posted on 23rd February 2009 and there was only comment on it on the same day by Greta Memsaab. The second comment was by Mr. Chandrakant H Shah on 08th Dec’2016 and he had mentioned about this song being a multiple version song. However somehow this has been remained to be updated.

I too remember this song ‘ulfat me zamaane ki har rasm ko thukraao’ as a Kishore Kumar song only and I think the version was not that much popular then. I had not watched this movie until now, so can’t say much about that. Except I vaguely remember to have heard this Kishore Kumar song on radio frequently and thereafter its memory was revived when I had started collecting cassettes in 1985-86. In 1987-88 after the death of Kishore Kumar HMV has released an album titled ‘A tribute to the Legend’ (it was a four-cassette set) and this song was included in this album.

As per HFGK listing of songs of this movie the Lata Mangeshkar version appears first (at number 3 in the movie) and the Kishore Kumar version appears later (at number five in the movie).

‘Call Girl-1974’ was directed by Vijay Kapoor for Mukesh Movies, Bombay. It was produced by Mukesh Khanna.

It had Zahira, Vikram, Iftekhar, Urmila Bhatt, Shekhar Purohit, Minoo Mehtab, Reddi, Mansaram, Satyajeet, Shefali, Jankidas and Kuljeet.
Heena Kausar make a special appearance in this movie.

Jalal Agha and Nazneen, Krishan Dhawan and Paintal have friendly appearances in this movie. Story of this movie was by Mukesh Movies Story Department. Editing of this movie was done by B.S. Glaad. Screenplay and dialogues of this movie were written by K. A. Abbas.

This movie had total seven songs including one multiple version song and one cabaret dance music. All the songs in this movie were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and music was composed by Sapan-Jagmohan. Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Lata Mangeshkar and Ranu Mukherjee who gave their voices to the songs in this movie had one solo song each, and there was one duet sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar and one by Kishore Kumar and Ranu Mukherjee.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 28.05.1974 with restricted viewing certificate (A).

Since I have not watched this movie, I can’t say much about it or the songs from this movie. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy the today’s song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Kishore Kumar and picturized on Vikram and Zahira.

The song is a nice one though it must not be popular or heard that much as the other song from this movie.

“Mera Jeewan”(1976) was directed by Vindu Shukla for Shreejee International, Bombay. This “social” movie had Vidya Sinha, Ambika Johar, Dushyant, Satyen Kappu, Jairaj, Shivraj, Viju Khote, Dinesh Hingoo, Padma Rani, Arvind Rathod, Baby Guddi, Sunita, Shekhar Purohit, Uday Kumar, Ranveer Raj, Jugnu, Anand Bihari,Harbans Pape, Pardesi, Amrit Patel, Madhavi, Master Ajay, Baby Sabiha etc. A K Hangal (friendly appearance) and Sulochana, Veena and Harindranath Chattopadhyay (special appearances) also figured in the movie.

The movie had four songs in it. Two songs from the movie have been covered in the past, including the title song which was the most popular song from the movie.

When I checked up on the four songs of this movie, I realised that all the four songs were quite popular during its time before they were forgotten.

Here is the third song from “Mera Jeewan”(1976) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. M G Hashmat is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

The song is picturised on Vidya Sinha as a “man mein laddoo phootna” genre of song. 🙂

I have not been able to get one word in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blank/ suggest correction as applicable.


Song-Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de (Mera Jeewan)(1976) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-M G Hashmat, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
aaj bole re lagan
jisko kehte hain dulhan
koi kaise sajaa de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de

aaj meri aankhon mein chamke pyaar ki jyoti
seep ke man mein muskaaye armaanon ke moti
khushiyon ke moti
pyaar ki jyoti
khushiyon ke moti
pyaar ki jyoti
aaj meri aankhon mein chamke
pyaar ki jyoti
aaj bole mera man
jisko kehte hain sajan
koi us’se milaa de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de

aaj suni kaanon ne mere
dil ki shehnaai
tod ke pinjra panchhi bhaaga
tooti tanhaai
suni shehnaai
tooti tanhaai
suni shehnaai
tooti tanhaai
aaj suni kaanon ne mere
dil ki shehnaai
jaise udti hai pawan
aur jhhoome re gagan
koi kaise uda de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
aaj bole re lagan
jisko kehte hain dulhan
koi kaise sajaa de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de
Koi mere haathhon mein mehandi laga de

Blog Day : 3811 Post No. : 14807

After yet another hiatus of a few months, I am back on the blog today (24 december 2018).

And I’m sure most people who know me here, will know why. 🙂

Yes, it is that big day for Hindi film music lovers all around the world today – it is the birth anniversary of Mohammad Rafi, or, as he is affectionately and reverentially referred to by many, Rafisaab.

And while I might miss out on writing on any other anniversary on this blog, this is one date I try my best to never miss. As I’ve said many times before, this is my very small, entirely insignificant, way of saying “thank you” to the person who has given me countless hours of happiness in my life.

Different people derive happiness from different things. For me, music has always been a core part of my existence for as long as I can remember. I often have a song on my lips – often sub-consciously. This has occasionally led to embarrassing situations but thankfully it has never affected my love or passion for music. And I think I’m in very good company on this one – there are so many people out there for whom music is an integral part of their daily lives.

This is also one big reason we are all here together on this blog. HFM lovers, from all parts of the world, in all age-groups, sharing their love for HFM.

And when we talk of HFM, especially during its golden age, it’s hard not to talk of Rafisaab.

This is why I write tributes to him at least twice a year. On his death anniversary, and on his birth anniversary. I do write about him on other occasions too, but if I miss out on either of these occasions, I feel I’m letting him down. For all that he has given me, can’t I even write a few words on these specific occasions to pay tribute to him?

So here I am today.

Now, what should I write?

I’ve written many posts here on Rafisaab and discussed my feelings about him. About his songs, his personality, how he managed to break in and find a special place in my heart and my life, at a time when Kishore Kumar was absolutely king. There’s nothing more I can write that will not be a repetition.

Yet, the sheer joy of writing about Rafisaab is so exhilarating that, at the risk of boring readers, I will share a few thoughts.

After all, when I watch videos of Jeetendra narrating his now-famous Deedar-e-Yaar experience with Rafisaab, or Shammi Kapoor narrating his “aasmaan se aaya farishta” story about Rafisaab, or SP Balasubramaniam talking about “deewana hua baadal”, I enjoy listening to these stories every single time. I know the stories inside out by now, but the passion and love with which these stories are narrated, is itself special for me.

It would surprise no one if I said that, as an early-1970s boy, the one male singer who was my universe at that time was Kishore Kumar. In those days I’d often listen to “current songs” – and naturally that meant his songs were playing everywhere, on every single radio programme, every single day.

Other singers like Mukesh and Manna Dey (and even Rafisaab) would also figure but almost like an exception. Kishore’s was easily THE most dominant male voice of the time.

I was very fond of Kishore Kumar – in my classroom in school, my friends would all invariably sing the latest Kishore songs.

Then one day, I think it was the afternoon 1.00-1.30 programme (I don’t remember its name), I happened to listen to an old song.

At that time I had only vaguely heard of that song. So I knew a few lines but I’d never heard its rendition before.

What was this song! What was this voice! Who was this singer!

I stood transfixed. Rongte khade ho gaye.

I knew it wasn’t Kishore. And when the announcer said “abhi aapne Mohammad Rafi ko film Baiju Baawra mein sunaa”, I realized that in my universe, the one where Kishore Kumar had until then occupied almost complete mindspace, I’d have to made room for another voice.

It wasn’t as if I hadn’t heard Rafisaab songs till then. Of course I had. But my mind had been so full of Kishore, that every other voice had been drowned out in the process. Hey, I was still a young boy then, so not particularly discerning.

That song was “o duniya ke rakhwaale”.

How I wanted to hold on to that song! To listen to it again. And again.

From the initial “bhagwaan” to the “rakhwaale, rakhwaale”, I didn’t know what hit me. The highs and lows, the peaking and the ebbing, the modulations, the way he sings “bhagwan” three times at the start – and each one is a different cry to God – there was no way this song was not going to make an impact on me.

Of course those were pre-internet days. I couldn’t just search for the song and play it again. ? And where I lived, I didn’t even have access to a music store – nor would I have been able to buy a cassette even if I’d wanted to.

At that time I could only hope that I’d get to listen to the song again. In fact, that was how things were in those days. You’d listen to a song, love it – and then hope it would come in a farmaish again. 🙂

From that moment onwards, I became a keen Rafisaab listener. I am sure the same songs that I might not have paid attention to earlier, suddenly began speaking to me. I distinctly remember songs like “suhaani raat dhal chuki” (a Vividh Bharati favourite 🙂 ) , “parbaton ke pedon par”, “ek dil ke tukde hazaar hue”, “ye teri saadgi”, amongst others.

Every single song I listened to, I fell in love with.

When I listened to “kar chale hum fida”, I had tears in my eyes. Many years later I saw the film but Kaifi Azmi’s lyrics, Madan Mohan’s music and Rafisaab’s voice – how can you remain impassive to that song?

When I listened to “jaane kya dhoondhti rehti hain”, it transported me to a different world. Again Kaifi Azmi’s lyrics are magical, and Rafisaab’s rendition elevates them to a different level altogether.

Another song I got to listen to, and was extremely fond of at that time (I still am!), was “karwaan guzar gaya”. I’ve always had a soft corner for good lyrics – and Neeraj’s lyrics, even by his high standards, are just amazing in this one.

I can reel off many more songs that I listened to – each one only further confirming to me that while Rafisaab might have had a decline in the early 70s, to even suggest that he was in any manner a lesser singer than Kishore Kumar was sheer lack of understanding of music.

My paternal grandmother, who didn’t know a word of Hindi, and didn’t know who Kishore Kumar or Rafisaab were, clearly had a discerning ear. We had a cassette of Abhimaan at home – it would play a lot. It would start with “meet na mila”, and while every song in the film is a gem in its own right, she’d always tell me to play THAT song. Yes, “teri bindiya re” – which is one of my favourite songs of the 1970s.

So this is how Rafisaab managed to break into my Kishore Kumar-dominated young mind. 🙂

And since then he has a permanent and very special place in my mind and heart. In my younger days I didn’t have access to much music other than via radio – now of course it has all changed. I spend hours listening to music, many of these hours listening to Rafisaab. No particular song or playlist – just randomly listening to his songs, one after another. One moment it could be “mere mehboob tujhe”, the next “tumhaari zulf ke saaye mein shaam”, the next “aye gulbadan”. Just listening to his voice gives me so much joy – just the way he joins in in “awaaz deke hamen tum bulao” is special for me. And the way he joins in the middle of “deewana mastaana hua dil” – it’s just so awesome!

So there’s the singer Rafisaab for me.

But my post would be incomplete if I limited it to just Rafisaab’s singing.

What makes him so much more special for me is the person he was. Obviously I never got to meet him, so this is secondhand, but there isn’t a single person who knew Rafisaab, who does not vouch for what a great human being he was. It wasn’t just his soft-spoken nature, he was kindness and generosity personified. He could easily have put on airs, he could have demanded a ransom price, such was his stature and such was the demand for his voice. Yet he was made of a different stock – “kuchh aur mitti ke hi baney the”. There wasn’t a single trace of arrogance or greed in him.

Rafisaab did not hesitate to work with upcoming composers, giving them hits in the process. He knew their financial position and would even refuse to take more than just a token from them. Throughout his career, he believed that whatever he had achieved was due to the grace of God – he would often point upwards when someone praised his singing.

No wonder then that Rafisaab is remembered today not just for his voice but also for the person he was. How often do you come across a person like this?

No wonder that on his death, crowds thronged the streets of Bombay to pay respect to him. This, despite pouring rain.

Is it any wonder that I am such a big fan of Rafisaab? And I can safely say there are many who are much bigger fans of him – main to kuchh bhi nahin.

Now onto the song for today.

It is a special occasion – so I’ve picked a song that I heard for the first time today.

I wanted to pick a song from Rafisaab’s supposedly “lean” period. For some reason, this period fascinates me. I’ve always supported the underdog – so if someone tells me that a particular singer had a bad patch in a particular phase of his career, there’s a good chance I’ll listen to songs of that singer in that particular phase. 🙂 It’s just the way my mind works.

I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it today.

It has trademark Rafisaab elements in it – and is a pleasant song to listen to. I didn’t want a sad song for the occasion, after all it’s his birth anniversary.

It’s from a film, Gunaah Aur Kanoon (1970). I have no clue about the film but going by the name, it sounds a bit like Crime and Punishment. 🙂

The song itself is definitely worth a listen. Music is by Sapan Jagmohan, who might not have been in the top rung of composers, but have created quite a few memorable tunes of their own.

I hope you enjoy this song as much as I did while listening to it the first time. I have already listened to it a few times now. 🙂


Song-Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin(Gunaah Aur Kanoon) (1970) Singer-Mohammad Rafi, Lyrics-Anwar Farrukhabadi, MD-Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Jo baat janam le le dil mein
Jo baat janam le le dil mein
Us baat ka kyun izhaar na ho
Us baat ka kyun izhaar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin

Maana ke jawaani hai aayi
tauba
Ye nasheeli angdaayi ee ee
Maana ke jawaani hai aayi
Tauba ye nasheeli angdaayi
Thham thham ke baras ae shokh ghata
Thham thham ke baras ae shokh ghata
Jazbaat ki hadd se paar na ho
Jazbaat ki hadd se paar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin

Ye shaam ki surkhi gaalon par
Haaye
Ye raat ka aanchal baalon par r
Ye shaam ki surkhi gaalon par
Ye raat ka aanchal baalon par
Pad jaaye nazar tujh par jiski
Haaye pad jaaye nazar tujh par jiski
Kaise wo tera beemaar na ho
Kaise wo tera beemaar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Mil jaaye nazar aur pyaar na ho
Aisa to kabhi mumkin hi nahin

Missing Films of 1960s – 88
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This journey of searching out the missing films is such an interesting exploration of the unheard and less heard gems – or as they say on Radio Ceylon (SLBC now) ‘कम सुने और अनसुने गीत’.

Today’s song is one such rarely heard gem, but oh what exquisitely crafted gem this one is. The film is ‘Haveli’ from 1970. The name sounds as if this would be a film of the horror genre, of course mixed with police and robber crime drama. The one poster of this film that I am able to locate on the net (actually an image with the song on YT), shows the leading lady with a revolver in her hand. The rest of the poster combines the film title logo, and another image of the lead pair. This image does not exhibit any overt horror type flavor – just that the title gives such an impression.

The film is from the banner of Movies Den, Bombay. It is produced by Jawahar Anand and is directed by Sudarshan Babbar. The lead pair is Shailesh Kumar and Nivedita, and the remaining cast is listed as Azra, Heeralal, Manmohan Krishan, Ravikant, Brahm Bhardwaj, Lata Arora, Yunus Parvez, Ridku, Anand Prakash, Jawahar Kapoor, BK, Rahi, Dharmesh, Rajendra Kapoor, Jaishri T, Meenakshi, and Shefali.

The film has 5 songs, as per the Geet Kosh listings. Four of these songs, including the one being introduced today, are written by Naqsh Lyallpuri, and one is written by Naseem Sahranpuri. Music for this film and composed by Sapan Jagmohan. The singing voice is Asha Bhosle.

Although I have not seen the video of this song, but still, from the flavor of the words and the style of rendition, this seems to be a sensuous song, possibly even a seduction song. The measured deliberateness with which Asha ji has rendered this song, brings in just that right emphasis making this such an attractively sensuous song.

The cast of actors includes names like Jaishree T, Azra, Meenakshi, Shefali – so I would not even start to guess on whom this song might have been picturized. I request our more knowledgeable friends and readers to please add more information about this song and this film, if available.

But regardless, enjoy this wonderfully sensuous song.

Song – Gesuon Ki Haseen Chhanv Mein Humnasheen  (Haveli) (1970) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

Lyrics

Here is the fourth and final song from “Rocky Mera Naam”(1973) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Naqsh Llayalpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Sapan Jagmohan.

The song is pictrised as a mujra dance song. One expects the dancer to lip sync as well as dance. Here there is distribution of labour. One lady lip syncs and another lady performs mujra. Just imagine similar distribution of labour in cricket bowling as well where one person runs on the bowling runup and another person delivers the ball. 🙂 In olden days, some cricket loving maharajas actually played cricket that way. 🙂

I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify the actors visible in the picturisation.

With this song, all the songs of “Rocky Mera Naam”(1973) get covered in the blog and this movie joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

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.

Song – Sajna Mera Jiyara Jaley (Gustakhi Maaf) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Naqsh Lyallpuri, MD – Sapan Jagmohan

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
