‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa-1973’ was directed by Sultan Ahmed for ‘Golden Films, Bombay’. It was produced by Tony Walker. It had Mumtaz, Sameer, Vinod Khanna, Shatrughan Sinha, Balraj Sahni, Nirupa Roy, Nadira, with Jayshree T., Malka, Randhir, Yunus Parvez, Master Ripple, Baby Deepali, Moolchand Kapoor, Master Ejaz and Chaman Puri and Johny Walker.

This movie was written by Mushtaq Jalili and editing of this movie was done by M.S. Shinde.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 301.01.1973.

‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa’ had total five songs that were composed by Shankar-Jaikishan. Mohd Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonlse and Sharda had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

The songs in this movie were penned by Shakeel Badayuni (who by the time of release of this movie had passed away on 20.04.1970). He wrote three songs for this movie and the two remaining songs were written by Indeevar.

Today 20th April’ 2022 is the fifty-second ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of Shakeel Badayuni (3 August 1916 – 20 April 1970).

As a tribute to him I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Pyaar Ka Rishtaa’.

A per statistics on the blog Shakeel Badayuni had written lyrics for around 766 songs. Out of these 766 we have 644 songs covered on the blog.

I had not gone through these details earlier. I was under the impression that most of the songs written by Shakeel Saab had already been covered on the blog. But 122 songs pending is a big number. I wonder if all these remaining songs are available.

It would be interesting to go through the ‘filmography’ of Shakeel Badayuni to know the movies from which the songs are yet to be posted. (I hope to do it in the future as possible).

For today we have a song sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle which on screen is performed by Sameer (hope I am correct) and Mumtaz. Today’s song is a ‘chhed-chhaad & nok-jhonk’ type song.

Lyrics are by Shakeel Badayuni. And music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.

None of the songs composed by Shankar-Jaikishan featured in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1973’. However, two songs composed by them one from ‘Aaj Ki Taazaa Kabhar-1974’ (mujhe meri biwi se bachaao) and one from ‘Chori Chori-1974’ (waastaa hi na jab rahaa tumse) appeared in the list of ’32 next rung songs’ of 1973 Binaca Geetamala.

Let us now listen to today’s song … and pay our tributes to Shakeel Badayuni …

Song-Gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chhupaao na (Ghoonghat)(1960) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chhupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai
gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chhupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai
hamen gusse se
haan hamen gusse se aankhen dikhaao na
ye to hansne hansaane ki raat hai

aaj tu kaahe ko sharmaati hai
ye ghadi roz nahin aati hai
aane waale hain piya milne ko
phool hain dil ke tere khilne ko
tujhko rasiya ki nazar lootegi lootegi
aaj nainon ki sharam tootegi
kaahe tere ye nain
tera dil hai bechain
sakhi hamse yoon daaman chhudaao na
ye to milne milaane ki raat hai
gori ghoonghat mein
ai ai o
gori ghoonghat mein
mukhda chupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai

aaj ki raat zara chup rahna
dil ki baaten na balam se kahna
wo agar chheden to bal kha jaana
unki baaton mein na tu aa jaana
mard ki zaat ko tu kya jaane
kya jaane
bade chaalaak hain ye deewaane
kabhi painyya padenge kabhi vinti karenge
un se kahna ke jaao sataao na
arre ye to nakhre dikhaane ki raat hai
gori ghoonghat mein haaye daiyya
gori ghoonghat mein mukhda chupaao na
ye to naina ladaane ki raat hai
hamen gusse se aankhen dikhaao na
ye to hansne hansaane ki raat hai

“Ghoonghat”(1960) was produced by S S Wasan and directed by Ramanand Sagar for Gemini Studios, Madras. This movie had Bharat Bhushan, Pradeep Kumar, Bina Rai, Asha Parekh, Leela Chitnis, Rajendranath, Rehman, Agha etc. This was a Madrasi style movie, but curiously enough, its story was inspired from a Bangla story. It was an adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore’s 1906 Bengali story “Noukadubi”.

The movie had ten songs in it. Eight songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the ninth song from “Ghoonghat”(1960) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

The song is picturised as a marriage ritual song. The song is lip synced by Bina Rai who plays the silently sacrificing lady, a character that was the cornerstone of Hindi movies of these days.

The bride is played by a very young Asha Parekh.


Song-Jaa ri sakhi saj dhaj ke apne pee ke dwaare(Ghoonghat)(1960) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ravi
Chorus

Lyrics

Jaa ri sakhi saj dhaj ke

Dilip Kumar – The Legend (1922-2021)
——————————————————

Since last two days I have been watching the various videos on whatsapp and on the net and also read some articles on the net. I have tried to see and absorb as much of the information I could about the events after, when the thespian is no more. After all is said and done, I have tried various tacks on how to approach this tribute to the method actor, who some call the “Marlon Brando” of India, without the ferociousness. But I find a ferocious, peasant turned dacoit in ‘Ganga Jamuna’ and a fractioned rebel prince Salim who is equally ferocious in protecting his Anarkali. The work on the silver screen was a very important part of the personality, but by no means it was the whole personality.

The best of Dilip Kumar, the actor and star was over, well before I grew up. But the admiration for his qualities as a screen performer and as a person conscious of his social responsibilities, was an inculcation process in my conscious mind. It has not happened overnight. These are small snippets of information, fed to my mind and stored away. Many incidents and events heard and read about long ago are surfacing in the memory. The trigger is the passing away of Dilip Kumar on 07/07/2021.

I was preparing the posts thinking of some old songs which have not been posted in the blog yet, preferably a song sung by Rafi sahab, writing a para here about this, and there about that, in yahoo mail, in gmail, on my office desktop and my laptop. This is not the way I prefer to do a post, but it was happening like this in this instance, as I was not able to assimilate the thoughts and lacked the drive to concentrate on the topic, maybe.

Then, I had divine help in the shape of a TV news show. I am pretty impressed with the contents of the particular show aired on 07/07/2021, with the byline – An era ends with Dilip Kumar’s death. It is very much close to my own feelings on this occasion, so I am reproducing some parts of the text of the show in hindi – trying to do verbatim translation is beyond me at the moment.

“Apni gair haazri mein iss se adhik haazir koyi kya ho sakta hai ke aap unhen alvidaa kehte waqt iss tarah se yaad kiye jaa rahe hain, jaise woh laut kar aaye hon. Yeh desh jo har waqt hindu-musalmaan ke beech nafrat ki deewar par chal raha hotaa hai, uss desh mein aisa ek hi shakhs thha jo Dilip Kumar bhi thha aur Yusuf Khan bhi. 1947 ke vibhajan rekha ko wo jis aasaani se paat diya karte thhe, bahot kam logon mein waisi quwwat hoti hai. Unn ka ek makaan phoolon ke shehar peshawar mein aaj tak hai. Unn ka ek makaan paison ke shehar Mumbai mein bhi hai. Aaj hindustan ne jitna khoya hai, utna pakistan ne bhi khoyaa hai.

Pichhle saal sitamber mein jab pakistan ke patrakaar Shiraz Hasan ne apne twitter handle par Dilip Kumar ke puraane makaan ki tasveer sajhaa ki, tab Dilip Kumar ne apne twitter handle se jawaab diya ke Peshawar mein sabhi se guzaarish hai ke mere pushtaini makaan ki tasveeren den. Phir to tasveeron aur videon ka taantaa hi lag gayaa. Peshawar ke ‘Qissa-Khwaani’ bazaar mein unn ka makaan hai. Dilip Kumar ne apni aatma katha mein likkha hai ki aaj bhi wahan ki khushbu, rang aur mausamon ki yaaden taazi hain. Kanpwa dene wali sardiyaan yaad hain. Unhen yaad hai Wahabbat Khan ki masjid huaa karti thhi. Iss bazaar ka naam qissa khwaani bazaar iss liye bhi padaa ke yehan vyapari apne qisse sunaate thhe aur doosron ka qissa sunte thhe. Kise pataa thha ke unn tamaan anaam qisson ke beech itna bada qissa niklegaa jis ka naam Yusuf Khan se badal kar Dilip Kumar kar diya jaayegaa. Do naamon ko ek saathh jeena aur khabron se bhari iss duniyaa mein tthag ki jagah behadd imaandar aur shaaleen shakhs ke roop mein dekhaa jaanaa, yeh bhi apne aap mein ek qissa hai, jis ka bazaar aaj unn ke jaane ke baad sajaa hai.

Apni aatma khathha mein unhon ne likkha hai ke bazaar mein aag lagi thhi jis waqt unn ki paidaaish hui thhi.
“Dilip Kumar – The substance and the shadow” aap ko unn tamaam chaukhaton tak le jaati hai, ye dikhaane ke liye ke ek kalaakar apne wajood se alag ho kar ek bada kalaakar nahi bantaa hai.
Waise unn ki aatma katthaa ke shuruaat se le kar akhir ke panno par, ghar ki dadi, ammi, phuphi aur didi ke qisse bhare pade hain. Maaon aur behnon ke beech ek kumar bada ho raha thha, pata chalta hai ke khaandaani aadmi thhe.
Saira Bano se unn ki shadi 1966 mein hui. Woh apne aap mein uss waqt ki mash-hoor aur maqbool kalaakar thhin. Unn ki aakhri saans tak unn ke saath saaye ki tarah khadi rahin. Ham aur aap ek tarah se Dilip Kumar ko celebrate kar rahe hain. Unn ke hone aur na-hone ko unn ke abhinay ki katranon ko nikaal kar tukde tukde mein jiye jaa rahe hain.
Lekin Saira Bano ke liye Dilip Kumar ek video clip bhar nahin thhe. Unn ke dukh ki dahleez tak koyi nahi pahunch saktaa.
Ham ne baat peshawar ke makaan se shuru ki thhi. Bambai ke Anjuman Islam school mein padhne lagte hain Dilip Kumar. Vibhajan se pehle aa gaye thhe. Lekin school ki chhuttiyon mein unn ka Peshawar aana jaana raha, angrezi ki kavitaayen sunaane aur unn ki daad lene ke liye.

1930 ke dashak ke baare mein Dilip Kumar ne likkha hai ke yehaan tab hindu chai, muslim chai, hindu paani, muslim paani milaa karta thha.

Dilip Kumar apne bachpan ko kandhe par rakh kar chalte thhe. Ek qissa hai ke jab akhbaaron mein chhapa ke bombay mein tram band hone waali hai, to unhen dard huaa 31/03/1964 ko hazaaron logon ne dadar aur parel ke beech chali uss aakhri tram ko bidaai di. Dilip Kumar likhte hain ke agar wo Dilip Kumar naam ka star na hote aur Yusuf Khan hi rehte to uss akhri tram mein zarur safar karte. Hazaaron logon ne antim tram ko vidaayi di thhi. Unn ki yaadon mein jitna peshawar thha utnaa hi bombay thaa. Koyi abhinetaa apne shehar ko unn daftaron se yaad karta hai, koyi Dilip kumar hai jo apne uss ki mohallon bason aur pedon se yaad karta hai. Yahin par unn ka makaan hain, yahin unn ko Juhu qabrastaan mein suprud-e-khaak kiya gayaa. Badi sankhya mein aam log iss shaandaar abhineta ko vidaayi dene aaye. Unhen maaloon hai yehan Dilip sahab dafan ho rahe hain. Unn ka ek makaan, jism ka har ek qatra hindustaan mein hai, lekin ek makaan peshawar mein bhi hai jis ke baahar unn ki yaad mein ek poster lagaaya gaya hai.

Ye bheed tab hai jab zamaane se unn ki koyi film nahi aayi hai, dashkon se nahi aayi. 1952 mein unn ki film “Aan’ release huyi, super hit huyi jo uss waqt ki sab se adhik kamaayi karne waali film bani. 1947 mein wo vibhajan rekha kheenchi gayi jis ke baad log udhar se idhar, aur idhar se udhar hogaye. Dilip kumar par pakistan ki oar se jaasoosi karne ke aarop lage, Deepa Mehta ki film ‘Fire’ ka samrthan karne par bhi bahot aalochna hui. In sab ke baad bhi unhen na koyi udhar dhakel paaya na idhar dhakel paaya.

Is interview mein aap inhen bolte suniye. Saamne koyi script nahi hai lekin aap parde ke Dilip Kumar aur asli jeewan ke Dilip Kumar mein farq nahi kar sakte. Patrkar Sunil Sethi ne NDTV ke liye Dilip Kumar ka interview kiya thha. Puraana interview hai. Angrezi mein iss interview ko aap bhasha, aur usse baratne ke lehje ke liye bhi suniye. Unhenn bolte huey sunne se bhi lagta hai ham ne jin i’laaqon ko, rawaayaton aur lafzon ko baant diya hai. Dilip Kumar jab bolte thhe to woh saara kuchh ek aisi zameen se aaya lagtaa thha, jis ka batwaara kabhi huaa hi nahi. Unn ka bolna uss i’laaqe ka ek mukammal chehra thha, jise aap bharatiya up-mahadweep kehte hain.

“nishaan-e-imtiyaaz’ ko le kar huey vivaad ke waqt, unhon ne ye kahaa thha ke 65 saal hindustaan mein rehne ke baad mujhe apni wafadaari saabit karni pad rahi hai.

Unn ka ghar iss waqt ghamon se bhara huaa hai. Unn ki adaakari ham sab ke hisse mein maujood hai. Dilip Kumar ne cinema mein abhinay ko adhyay mein badal diya, iss liye unhen method actor kahan jaata hai. Mughal-e-azam jaisi film mein Salim ke kirdaar ko baadshahat dene waale Dilip Kumar kam samay mein dekhna ya unn ke baare mein samjhana bahot mushkil kaam hai.”

The show goes on to talk about Dilip Kumar’s philanthropic acts. I had meant to write a bit on this facet of his personality, as I found that the Wikipedia page on him is not mentioning this part of his life. The show than goes in detail about how his biography was written and published, and what were his specifications about writing about his personal life and relations with other female stars with whom he was linked romantically.

I would like to read the book and see what he writes about his equation with Madhu Bala and what went wrong with his second marriage to Asma Rehman.

I have read the letter hand written by Dilip Kumar in urdu, to the editor of ‘Shama’ which is part of a book. The beauty of the handwriting and the dignity in the sentences, conveying his outrage, subtle yet firm, that he will not tolerate any such inferences towards his personal matters, is to be read to be believed. I have not read that much of Urdu over the years, as I could have, but the conviction about the ‘shaaistagi’ of the language, written and spoken is never in doubt. The letter vindicates my convictions about urdu, and reassured me that Urdu is a deserving heritage ofvast populations across the world. I am still talking about Dilip Kumar’s cultured, educated, wise and dignified persona.

One dialogue from Mughal-e-azam :

“ye zakhm nahi phool hain Durjan. Aur phoolon ka murjhaana bahaar ki ruswaayi hai.
Suno,
ye qaatil hi nahi dildaar bhi hai,
yeh shaakh-e-gul bhi hai talwaar bhi hai”

Yes. In classic Urdu, sentences do begin with ‘aur’.

Going back to Dilip Kumar’s acts of charity and his commitment to social causes, I know it for a fact that he was a partner in many such deeds and was a patron and supporter of educational institutes, orphanages etc. Dr.Is-haq Jamkhanawala (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ishaq_Jamkhanawala) from Belgaum was a close friend of Dilip Kumar. These two friends had been involved in many charity projects, which can be verified. In fact Dilip Kumar visited Belgaum in early 80’s accompanied by Saira Bano for inaugration of an educational institute. I have a photographe where Dr. Is-haq Jamkhanawala also can be seen alongwith another illuminous person, a doctor from Belgaum. (Photo attached).

Saahir Ludhianvi says in his inimitable way that:

duniyā ne tajrabāt o havādis kī shakl meñ
jo kuchh mujhe diyā hai vo lauTā rahā huuñ maiñ

His stature and standing in the film industry as well as the country ensured that he is a blessed and deserving of the honour of State funeral given to him. A real ‘badaa aadmi’ in the way he was blessed with the affections and respect in this world. And bigger the stature and the power bestowed in this world, the bigger is the test of the character. The toughness of the test is directly in proportion to the worldly blessings. By all accounts he seems to have fared well in this test, as far as we can see, rest all is with Allah(swt), who is the best of judges.

Lata Mangeshkar says this in her tribute:

“Yusuf bhai has gone leaving his younger sister behind. His death seems like the end of an era. I am unable to comprehend anything, I’m extremely sad, speechless, he gave me many memories and left. Yusuf bhai has been unwell for the last many years. He couldn’t recognise anyone, at such time, Saira bhabhi left everything and took care of him day and night. She had no other life. I bow down to such a woman and I pray for Yusuf bhai’s soul to rest in peace,”

What is a better celebration of this legendary actor, multi-lingual and multi-dimensional personality, than a song from the magnum opus “Ganga Jamna’ which he produced, wrote and said to have ghost directed? I am presenting two song snippets from this film.

Shakeel Badayuni-Rafi-Naushad is the team, whose association with Dilip Kumar is again a stuff of legends. Some enthusiasts can write a thesis on this topic. There is a female voice in the longer snippet, which sounds like Rajkumari Dubey, but I cant be sure. I am positive that it is not Lata Mangeshkar and sound different from Shamshad Begum.

My own favourite song from “Ganga Jamuna” is:

Nain lad jayi hain
to manwaa maa kasak hoibe kari
prem ka chhutiye patakha to dhamak
hoibe kari

The film and songs are definitely worth revisiting and so is the thespian, Gulfaam, the originial angry young man, and so much more.

“Kundan”(1955) was produced and directed by Sohrab Modi for Minerva Movietone, Bombay. The movie had Sohrab Modi, Nimmi, Ulhas, Sunil Dutt, Pran, Om Prakash, Baby Naaz, Manorama, Roopmala, Murad, Jeevan, Sadat Ali, Kumkum etc in it.

The movie was based on Victor Hugo’s novel “Les Miserables” which was adapted for this Hindi movie by Pt Sudarshan.

The movie had ten songs in it. Seven songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the eighth song from “Kundan”(1955) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Manna Dey. Shakeel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ghulam Mohammad.

The song is picturised as a background song as Sohrab Modi is shown going far away from the home of Murad (as far as I can tell from the picturisation). I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

Here is the 13th and final song from LailaMajnu (1953). Out of the 14 songs listed at myswar.com and also with the posted songs list in the blog, 12 are posted. As mentioned in the penultimate post here , the extra song added in the list was ultimately used in the another Shammi Kapoor film ‘Chor Bazar (1954)’, with Sardar Malik’s music is posted here .

This is a prayer in a madrasa picturised on Master Jagdeep.

Madrasa or “Madrasah” is the oldest form of organized education institutions. One gathers all sort of general knowledge or information as one flits from interesting topics and not very interesting or boring issues. We keep growing, with the informal knowledge and gaining of wisdom, throughout our lives. And this is the way it should be, or the human intelligence would stagnate and die out. Nowadays, we are in danger of information overload, as there are too many sources, from which we can gather information on any topic or issue. I had a vague notion that “Madrasa” is one of the oldest form of organized system of imparting education, I read or heard somewhere. Then I looked up in Google to find out if my notion is correct. And I searched for “Maktab”, and as it happened, Google did confirm it to me in a very roundabout way, from maktab to kuttab to finally madrasah. I am beginning to dread finding answers on google, as the obvious answer it gives is misleading. One has to dig deeper in the results to come at a truthful conclusion.

I also found a pdf file of a research paper titled “Maktabs and Madrasas in India: A Look at Statistics based on 8th All India School Education Survey” at researchgate.net. The following para giving brief history is reproduced below:

“The first educational institution in the Muslim world was the mosque built at Medina early in the seventh century by the Prophet Muhammad and his Companions. From then on, mosques were used for teaching purposes, especially for the teaching of law and theology, but as society developed, study circles were held not only in the mosques but also in the palaces, in the streets and even in the market-places. The study circles also grew in number and quality during this period, forming the nuclei of what were to become the madrasas, colleges intended for adults who had already received their primary education in private schools or mosques. In the tenth century the madrasas emerged as an independent institution distinct from the mosque, although madrasas – at least in the early days – were set up either for a single jurist or to teach the tenets of a particular legal school. Thus was born a new kind of educational institution, destined in future to become a center of religious and secular learning in the Islamic world and a place where the representatives of the official class were educated in the spirit of Muslim orthodoxy.

The history of Madrasa education in India starts since the arrival of Muslims in India and it began in the 10th century with the establishment of Maktabs and Madrasas in the towns of Sind, Dabel, Mansura, Multan by the Arab traders and settlers (Haque, 2013).”

Considering, that education and knowledge is power, the imparting of power to the people, and starting young in observing, absorbing and gaining this power is a tradition in Islam, is a sobering thought. The very first “Wahee”(Divine revelation) that was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) began with the word “Iqraa”, meaning “read”, as in read, repeat, study and gain knowledge.

And to think that we all have arrived in this era of faster traffic of information, programming and coding and moving to artificial intelligence, through the foundation laid by the Prophet and his companions, of an education system, 1400 years ago. A lot has gone by and happened, and lessons have been learnt in these 1400 years.

May Allah Almighty give us and our future generations, the taufeeq, the discipline, talent and the spirit to gain, impart and constantly improve the education and knowledge, as these words in the prayer:

yaa rabb hamen ta’aleem ki
taufeeq ‘ataa kar
rakkhen tere farmaan ko
seene se lagaa kar

Wikipedia say this in one of the pages:

Literacy
In medieval times, the Caliphate experienced a growth in literacy, having the highest literacy rate of the Middle Ages, comparable to classical Athens’ literacy in antiquity.[7] The emergence of the Maktab and Madrasah institutions played a fundamental role in the relatively high literacy rates of the medieval Islamic world.[8]

I am yet to look up the antiquity age in classical Athens, to see if it is a concurrent period, later or earlier period, of what is given above as medieval times. 🙂

This is what it means dissemination of information available on the internet.

Let us move on to the song being posted and Jagdeep, who is in the middle of it all. We see a very young Jagdeep, singing this prayer with other students, as the ustad is looking on. Shamshad Begum is the singer of this prayer written by Shakeel Badayuni and composed by Ghulam Mohammed. Jagdeep was born 29th March, 1939, so he was 14 years old in 1953. He expired a few months ago on 20th July, 2020, another casualty possibly of these pandemic times. As per the filmography, he has worked in 391 films as an actor, starting as a child artist in 1950, up to 2017. This could be a record as a 67 year long career. Those who started before him in the industry have long since hung up their boots. Innumerable memorable characters played by him are part of the histology of hindi films and also the some sweet and some funny and some romantic songs filmed on Jagdeep are already posted in the blog. Some songs may be remaining to be posted, the current one being one of them.

Here is a memorable stanza of this famous background song pictured on Jagdeep in the film Bhaabhi(1957) :

khatam hue din us daali ke
jis par teraa baseraa thaa
aaj yahaan aur kal ho wahaan
ye jogi waalaa phera thaa
ye teri jaageer nahin thi
chaar ghadi ka dera tha
sadaa raha hai is duniyaa mein
kiskaa aab-o-daanaa
chal ud jaa re panchhi
ke ab ye des hua begaanaa

21/10/2020 – 89th Birth anniversary of Shammi Kapoor
————————————————————————

I have in possession for almost a year now, a book titled “Rafinaama” by Isaak Mujawar. One day I just impulsively looked up the book availability on Amazon, and found that only two copies were available. I just ordered it without thinking anything. When the book arrived, then I realized that it was in Marathi. Even for self-proclaimed “kitaabi keeda” like me, sitting down reading it has proven a challenge. Which, I am yet to seriously take up.

Two days ago, I suddenly occurred to me, I am having these books and I should make use of the articles there for writing the various posts. The first book I encountered, for sheer visibility and the size of it, is “eh un dinon ki baat hai” – Urdu Memoirs of Cinema Legends (selected and translated by Yasir Abbasi). So for two days, I have been going through that book.

Since this Shammi Kapoor post is due to be written, I had finalized the song and lyrics are also ready. But the book does not contain anything about Shammi Kapoor and his career. I found “Rafinaama” next, in the drawer that I have kept for such treasures 🙂 never to be seen and touched by anyone.

And lo and behold, I have selected a Rafi song from the film Laila Majnu(1953) for posting on the 89th birth anniversary of Shammi Kapoor and Rafinaama starts with the chapter titiled “Shammi, Rishicha majnucha aawaaj” meaning “majnu’s voice for Shammi and Rishi”.

I am giving a brief roundup of the chapter here :

“Films on Laila Majnu title have been made in hindi film industry in 1922, 1931(2 Movies), 1945, 1953 and 1976. The “Laila Majnu” of 1922 was silent movie and the rest were talkies. Two more movies on the same characters story was differently titled, first “Daastaan-e-Laila Majnu” in 1973 and “Love and God” in 1986. Rafi Sahab’s songs were there in all these movies since 1945. In the 1945 version Rafi sahab has sung two songs but none were actually on Majnu’s character.”

The above chapter in the book says that Rafi’s voice was Majnu’s voice in 1953 film, which is incorrect. Among the 4 songs which Rafi Sahab sang for this three are already posted in the blog. In “Bhar de jholi Allah naam” Rafi sahab’s has sung in 3-4 different voices for different characters, but when Shammi Kapoor comes in line and sings, it’s Talat Mehmood’s voice for him. In the song “Aankhon mein hai tu”, Shammi Kapoor in watching the qawwali being performed, he is not singing at all. Third posted is “Mil gayaa taqdeer se chashmaa yehaan”is a solo Rafi song played in the background during the titles.

The songs posted are listed below:

The fourth Rafi song from this film is the song of the current post. It is a very short and rapid solo which is played in the background as Laila and Majnu, Shammi Kapoor and Nutan, both die lying in the desert and the sand covers them gradually. This must be the end of the film. So the film is starting and ending with a Rafi song background song. Composer is Ghulam Mohammad and lyrics are by Shakeel Badayuni.

This is 12th song to be posted from this film. One more song which is listed/included in the list of this films’ songs is actually not from this film, but this song posted here from another Shammi Kapoor film Chor Bazar (1954), with Sardar Malik’s music. So that means this movie has 13 songs and only one song remains to Yippee this movie. Remaining song is also a special one with Shamshad Begum giving playback to Master Jadeep. (I will try and get this post shortly).

There are a few more chapters dealing with Shammi Kapoori majnu type songs style which were sung by Rafi sahab, and subsequent Shammi Kapoor clones who tried to adopt the same style. The author is of the opinion that the Shammi style of songs which became famous as “yahoo” style did not originate with Junglee and Shankar-Jaikishan, rather the origin can be found in the songs of film “Tum sa nahin dekha” by O. P. Nayyar.

Shammi Kapoor started his film career with 6 films in 1953. He was the son of Prithvi Raj Kapoor and brother of Raj Kapoor, who was well on his way to be a stalwart film maker by then. But Shammi Kapoor must have set out to make his career on his own, there was no official launching by R. K. Films. His filmography lists 146 films from 1953 – 2011. Rockstar 2011 being the last film in which he acted. Up to Andaz 1971, I counted 56 movies of his which include many memorable musical extravaganzas with Rafi sahab’s playback under Shankar-Jaikishan, O.P. Nayyar and R. D. Burman. Early 50’s when he started as a hero, I can see, that the favoured voice for the hero was not Rafi. Rafi was the voice of everyone else in the some films but not the hero. But Naushad Sahab had used Rafi for all songs on Dilip Kumar in ‘Aan” & “Deedar” and for Bharat Bhushan in “Baiju Bawra”. Or it is possible some of them felt insecure, that Rafi’s singing could over shadow them in popularity. Truly, his phenomenal singing was capable was running away with the credits for all the success of film and its music. Naushad was too big before even “Baiju Bawra”, so could maybe whither the onslaught. Other big personalities who were not so big in early 50’s could have felt insecure. We should be glad that, this type of misapprehensions, if existing, were unable to keep Rafi sahab down for long. If a star shines too bright then its neighbors can be forgiven for being apprehensive.

By any account there must be around 180 songs which Rafi sahab sang for Shammi Kapoor, beginning with “Shama Parwaana” with this unforgettable song. This is a definite Rafi-Shammi song with the definite nuances of “Majnu”’and traces of “wehshat zada ishq”, as the curtain behind which Surraiya is listening to the song, is burnt. Such is the effect of Rafi sahab and Shammi Kapoor’s singing. In this film, seen on TV long ago, Rafi sahab has 5 songs including 3 duets with Suraiyya. There is no other male singer here, so all songs sung by Shammi Kapoor were by Rafi sahab.

Song-Milne ki hasrat mein betaabi ke saath (Laila Majnu)(1953) Singer-Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ghulam Mohammad

Lyrics

Milne ki hasrat mein
betaabi ke saathh
reh gaye phailaa ke haay
donon haathh
phool do din hans ke
jee behlaa gaye
aur ye gunche ae
bin khile murjhaa gaye
aaye thehre aur guzre
qaafile
phir na aise
chaahne waale mile ae
maut se kyun
ishq sharmindaa rahe
qais o laila
mar ke bhi zindaa rahe
qais o laila
mar ke bhi zindaa rahe
