By the end of 1972, she had sung in 1109 Hindi movies. So she achieved the distinction of lending her voice in more than eleven hundred Hindi movies.

It can be seen from the table of 1972 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 151 songs in 62 movies released in 1972. It was the highest number of songs in movies releade in a calender year for her in more than a decade. The last time she had sung more number of songs in movies released in a calender year than this was in 1961.

96 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies to 1972 have been covered in the blog. That leaves us with 54 songs that are yet to be covered.

All Lata Mangeshkar songs from 32 movies of 1972 are already covered in the blog. So 54 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 30 movies of 1972 are still available to be discussed.

Alphabetically the first movie of 1972 that offers us Lata Mangeshkar songs to be discussed is “Aankh Michauli”(1972).

“Aankh Michauli”(1972) was directed by Ramanna for EVR Pictures, Madras. The movie had Rakesh Roshan, Bharati (south), Om Prakash, Farida Jalal, Meeba T, Poornima, Jagdeep, Sundar, Joginder, Sharad Kumar (Jolly), Sanjeeva, Ganpati Bhatt, A Kannaiah, Gemini Balu, Arunachalam, Keshavan, Japmani, Dayalan, Shreeram, Veeraiah etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. One song has been covered in the blog so far. Lata Mangeshkar had sung one song in it which is not yet covered.

Here is that song. The song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar. Rajinder Krishan is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

The song is picturised on Bharati (south) and Rakesh Roshan as a rain song. Much of the lip syncing takes place inside sewer pipes. 🙂 Om Prakash is also seen watching them while hiding from their sight.

Hullo Atuldom

12th February was the birthday of an Atulite. He has started a series to introduce missing movies of the ’70s, and just as well as movies of 70s will complete 50 years. It is unbelievable that movies that were part of our childhood are 50 years old.

‘Guddi’, ‘Andaz’, ‘Haathi Mere Saathi’, ‘Caravan’, ‘Anand’, ‘Anubhav’, ‘Parwana’, ‘Tere Mere Sapne’, etc all 1971 releases, all which I have seen multiple times. I am sure that these movies would be favourites of a majority of the followers of this blog.

There is one more movie that will complete 50 years this year. Its release date has been recorded on various internet sites as 1st July 1971, but the censor certificate has a date of 24th February 1970 i.e. exactly a year after its leading lady bade goodbye to this mortal world.

Madhubala- the beauty who charmed an entire generation of moviegoers. A beauty who had an infectious smile and near-musical laughter: – can anyone forget the laughter that precedes ‘haal kaisa hai janaab ka’ or the mischievous smile through ‘accha jee main haari chalo maan jaao na’ and ‘jaanu jaanu re chhupke kaun aaya tore angna’. Her eyes were so expressive. But write-ups about her say that she kept a low public profile and was not seen at film parties and premieres.

She was born Mumtaz Jehan Begum Dehlavi in Delhi on 14th February (which the world celebrates as valentine day in modern times) as fifth of eleven children to Ataullah Khan and Ayesha Begum. An out of work father first reached Delhi from Peshawar (now in Pakistan) and then to Bombay. A very young Mumtaz was first cast as a child actor in the 1942 release ‘Basant’ which was followed by ‘Mumtaz Mahal’,‘Phulwaari’, ‘Dhana Bhagat’, ‘Rajputaani’. Baby Mumtaz became Madhubala from “Neel Kamal” in 1947. It is said that baby Mumtaz and baby Mahjabeen became friends in the period they were child actors and grew up to be contemporaries – Madhubala and Meena Kumari. Madhubala is said to have been a fan of Meena and her voice.

Madhubala was one of the most popular, successful and highly paid actresses of the ‘50s and ’60s. She acted in 73 movies in a career spanning almost two decades though the ‘60s saw only five films of hers. She also produced three movie: – ‘Naata’ (1955), ‘Mehlonkekhwab’ (1960) and ‘Pathan’ (1962). She sang a song or two as baby Mumtaz in ‘Basant’. She was an enigma who was rarely seen at filmy functions or premieres, this was because she was an obedient daughter and submitted to the domination of her father. According to what Dilip Kumar has once said:- she was the only female star for whom crowds would gather at the gates of the studios where she was shooting. Many believe she was one of the most underrated actresses as her beauty attracted more attention than her talent. She was good at expressing a range of emotions through her eyes- comedy, pathos etc etc. In spite of being an iconic actress she never won any awards and was only nominated for her role in “Mughal-e-azam” but she reigned on the hearts of her fans.

She was unlucky in life and had a few heartbreaks before leaving this world and Kishore Kumar, whom she married in 1960, yearning for her. She died on 23rd February 1969 of congenital heart disease;an ailment for which there was no treatment when she was diagnosed in 1954 on the sets of a film being made in Madras. By the time heart surgeries were possible she was too weak to withstand and was confined to bed for nearly nine years. In 1966 she attempted to complete her part of work in the Raj Kapoor starrer “Chalaak” but that was also a strain for her fragile body. (Most of this information I have found on Wikipedia about an actress/ star who was on my dad’s list of favorites in those times).

The song with this post is from a movie that was shot sometime in the ‘50sand we have a very young Sunil Dutt romancing the princess “Jwala” (Madhubala). This movie is significant as it is the only movie of Madhubala that was shot in colour, “Mughal-e-azam” was partly in colour at the time of making, but “Jwala” was made as a colour movie. Sudhirji’s post gives us details about the movie which was essentially a ‘princess falling in love with a commoner who turns out to be a prince in exile’ story. Today’s song is written by Rajinder Krishan, tuned by Shankar -Jaikishan and sung by Manna Dey and Lata Mangeshkar.

February was the month of Madhubala’s birth and she would have turned 88. It is also the month she left the world at 36. We, her fans, can only fantasize how she would have looked as an octogenarian.

Blog Day :

So it is that day again. The day when we reach a blog century. Though the going is quite slow now a days, still we are regular (no DOT days since 2020) and so we keep clocking our blog centuries every five to six weeks or so.

This article is blog post number 16200. This century took us exactly 50 days to reach.

I have mentioned it in the past that I remain tension free on most days but I get a bit tensed up when the century post arrives, because we need to look for a special song for the occasion. And I began worrying about locating the special song only at the eleventh hour and 59th minute. 🙂 This is an old habit of mine. My preparation for Examinations also used to be on similar lines. 🙂

The song that I have chosen for the occasion has been on my radar for several months. I considered covering it on many occasions during the last few months, but I backed off every time. There were many reasons.

One main reason why I could not cover this song earlier was its lyrics. Noting down the lyrics of this song has been a great challenge, mainly because the words are totally unfamiliar. At the same time, the words are not gibberish. They have definite meanings. So effort was needed to try and note them down as well as one could.

The second challenge was writing about the song. It is a special song, at at the same time a lesser known song. People have not been able to appreciate this song because this song is difficult to locate and secondly because of lack of information about what makes this song special.

This song is from “Patraani”(1956). “Patraani”(1956) was produced by Shankarbhai Bhatt (the elder brother) and directed by Vijay Bhatt (the younger brother) for Prakash Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Vyjayantimala, Pradeep Kumar, Omprakash, Shashikala, Durga Khote, David, Jeevan etc. in it. The story was written by Kanhaiyalal Maneklal Munshi.

The story, losely based on a real life story of 11th century has been narrated by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopedia, while discussing a previous song from the movie. Here is the story as narrated by him:-

King Karnadev Solanki, king of Gujrat(Pradeep Kumar) had many queens but no issues. The Rajmata(Durga Khote) insisted that he marry another girl after ascertaining astrologically her capability to give children.

The king had seen one princess in Somnath temple once and wanted to marry only her.But he does not know who she is. Actually she is princess Mrinal(Vyjayanti Mala) daughter of King Jai keshi(Ramesh Sinha) of Karnatak. She was on a Teerth yatra when she saw Karnadev. She also wanted to only marry him, but did not know who he was.

Munjal Mehta (David), Mahamantri of Karndev goes on a mission and soon finds out Mrinal. She is beautiful, but her skin becomes black in the sunlight. Munjal knows Karndev’s dislike of black. Mrinal is astrologically also fit. He tells her and shows the sketch of Karandev, after which she is happily ready to marry him.

They all travel to Gujarat, but during travel Mrinal’s skin becomes black. During marriage, there is a veil, but after marriage Karndev sees that she is black and rejects her.

She is good natured and becomes Raj mata’s pet. When the King falls sick, Mrinal serves him very well and slowly the King realises that outer skin colour does not make a person good or bad. He accepts her as she is and all’s well that ends well.

The movie was a musical blockbuster, with as many as ten songs in it. Nine songs have already been covered in the past. Here are the details of the songs already covered:-

13758 Saat samandar paar haaye re mera sapnon ka sansaar 22 November 2017 Lata solo
15438 Kabhi to aa 15 February 2020 Lata solo
15812 Raaja pyaare mat karo pyaar ka mol 17 August 2020 Lata, Usha Mangeshkar duet

One can notice that the voice of Lata Mangeshkar was present in all the songs of the movie. Even the final song being discussed today contains her voice. So this movie was one of those special movies where one singer sang all the songs. All ten songs- in this case !

While most Hindi movie songs have classical music elements in them, the songs of “Patraani”(1956) were specifically so. Shankar Jaikishan, the most popular music directors of the golden era, seem to have composed the songs of this movie as a labour of love, rather than as a means to score another box office success. It appears that the songs were not promoted well during its time and they did not become as popular with music lovers of those days who already had many more popular songs to chose from.

The tenth and final song from the movie is listed in HFGK as “paawan ganga sir pe sohe”. The song begins with these words, and these words are among the few words that most music lovers can understand. Then the song gets transformed into a pucca classical song, namely Tarana. Tarana is a genre of pure classical Hindustani music which was created by Amir Khusro (1253–1325 AD). Amir Khusro was also the creator of a more popular form of semi classical music namely qawwaali. He was also the creator of Ghazal.

Unlike Qawwali and ghazal, Tarana is far less known and heard in Hindi movies and elsewhere. Hindi movies have had very few Taranas in them. One such tarana was covered by me in the blog in 2015 when I had started a series on Classical music. There I had given some information about Tarana. That song from “Ladki”(1953) was sung by Lata and it was picturised on Vyjyanti Mala.

The video of the final “Patrani”(1956) songs does not seem to be available, which is a shame. I am sure that the song, like the Tarana song from “Ladki”(1953) was picturised on Vyjyanmti Mala. I request our knowledgeable readers, who may have seen the movie, to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

The song is mentioned in HFGK as a Lata solo, but one can detect a male voice too who sings one full stanza of tarana bols. The song also has long passages sung by chorus, before Lata Mangeshkar resumes singing. Not just Shankar Jaikishan, even Lata Mangeshkar must have drawn considerable creative satisfaction in recording this song.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the male voice.

I have tried my level best to note down the lyrics of the song, but I have fallen short. I request our readers to help correct the lyrics wherever applicable.

Shailendra is the lyricist. If he actually came up with the tarana bols then that is a fantastic achievement for him. With this song, Shailendra completes 700 songs in the blog as a lyricist.

With this song, all the ten songs of “Patraani”(1956) are covered in the blog. The movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the past. The movie becomes the 1248th movie to get YIPPEED in the blog.

With this one song, now all the Shankar Jaikishan compositions in HFM, each and every Shankar Jaikshan movie from 1949 to 1968, viz from “Barasaat”(1949) to “Shikaar”(1968)-all 94 of them- have been YIPPEED in the blog. Now one will have to look at movies of 1969 to find the earliest Shankar Jaikshan movie not yet YIPPEED in the blog.

So, this one song helps tick many invisible boxes in the blog.

This blog has survived for more than 12 years, and it has survived the COVID 19 year as well. With so much of musical treasure already covered, and with so much of musical treasure still to be covered, I am sure this musical bandwagon will continue to see many more milestones in the days to come. I take this opportunity to thank one and all whose continued support and encouragement serves as the fuel for this musical bandwagon and keeps it moving.

Blog Day :

4564 Post No. : 16162

I remember, when I was a growing child, I used to hear the name of film personality called ‘Sajjan’ by elders at home, or likeminded cine-goers who were family friends of my parents.
I used to wonder who exactly this person was in the movies I was watching. It continued for many years and all this while I had no clue about this person.

When I was a grown-up boy (😉) and was studying in 11-12th standard I watched ‘Johny Mera Naam-1970’ in 1983-85. And here for the first time I get to know who exactly the actor named ‘Sajjan’ was. After that whichever movies new and older I watched I enjoyed his performance on screen. In the background his image of a good character actor (that build up in my mind from the discussions at home) was always there in my mind. So, I was also enjoying his negative roles in many black & white movies of fifties and sixties.

Aftergoing through his filmography, I can recall watching many of these movies where he played various roles particularly with negative shades or sometime being the associate of the of the main villain of the movie, or the different character roles.

But before that he had acted as a hero or second to the hero in the movies of fifties and sixties. There is a long list of the movies he was a part of; however, I am not listing them all here today.

Regulars on this blog would wonder why I am discussing Sajjan today. The reason is- today (15 January 2020) is his birth anniversary.

Sajjan Lal Purohit was born on 15th January 1921 in Jaipur, Rajasthan (then Jaipur State of British India). That way today marks his 100th birth anniversary.

I had not read about him in the details and maybe he must have been discussed on the blog which I might not be aware of, so I have taken some information from Wikipedia and reproducing the same here.

Wikipedia mentions that he graduated from the Jaswant College, Jodhpur and he desired to become a lawyer and not an actor.

Wikipedia also mentions the following regarding his career in the movies;

In 1941, he arrived in Calcutta and worked as an apprentice in a laboratory of East India Company. His initial breakthrough in films was as an extra in films such as Masoom (1941) and Chowringhee (1942). Sajjan left Calcutta during World War II and reached Mumbai. In Mumbai he worked as an assistant to famous director Kidar Sharma. At that time, the great showman Raj Kapoor was also worked as an assistant to Kidar Sharma. He also worked as assistant to Gajanan Jagirdar and Vakil Sahib and got Rs.35 as salary.
A poet by heart, Sajjan showed his talent when he wrote dialogues for Meena (1944) and lyrics for Door Chalen (1946) and Dhanyavad (1948). Sajjan also acted in small roles in Prithvi Theatre. His acting debut film was Dhanyavad. After that, Bombay Theatre’s Muqaddar was released in 1950. The heroine was Nalini Jaywant.
By then Sajjan was well established in the films. In the 1950s and 1960s, Sajjan acted as hero or side-hero in films such as; Sainya, Rail Ka Dibba, Bahana, Sheesha, Malkin, Nirmohi, Kasturi, Mehmaan, Lagan, Girl School, Paridhaan, Ghar-Ghar Mein Diiwali, Haa-Haa-Hee-Hee-Hoo-Hoo, Poonam Jhanjhar and Halla-Gulla. As hero, his last film was Kabuliwala, Do Chor, and as an artist he last appeared in the 1986 release Shatru with Rajesh Khanna. An artist of more than 150 films, Sajjan also worked in TV serials. In Vikram Aur Betaal he played Betaal. His other serial was Lena-Dena.

I had watched many episodes of ‘Vikram Aur Betaal’ on TV and I liked Sajjan playing Betaal very much.

Sajjan passed away at the age of seventy-nine on 17th May’2000 in Mumbai (then Bombay).

As a tribute to him today I am presenting a song from ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ which was picturized on him (part-1 of the song). I had noted this song long time back but recently when I was going through the list of pending songs and came across this song, I watched it again and noted that it was Sajjan who was lip-syncing this song so I thought to present it on his anniversary.

This song is shown happening in a ‘village temple’ as a part of ‘sandhya-aarti-bhajan’ where Sajjan and many others are present (villagers and temple associates). A grief-stricken Jeetendra is also seen taking resort in the temple and sitting in ‘dhyaan’ while listening the ‘bhajan’ and I think he remains in this situation for a long time (😊) because by the time the song ends Jeetendra had a ‘beard’ of many days.

Part-2 of the song is played in the back-ground while Jeetendra is shown lying on a hospital bed, but as the song gets played, he regains some strength to leave the hospital without caring the ‘staff’ present there and reach the temple after crossing ‘fields’ etc.

HFGK mentions this song as a one song and not in parts.

I have not watched this movie so I request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

So far, two songs from this movie ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ have been posted on the blog. Today’s song is the third song from this movie to appear on the blog.

Let us now listen to today’s song which is from the movie ‘Yaar Mera-1971’ as mentioned above. Lyrics are by Neeraj and music is composed by Shankar-Jaikishan.
Manna Dey is the singer of this song.

“Seema”(1971), a namesake of the better known “Seema”(1955), was directed by Surendra Mohan for Filmnagar, Bombay.

The movie had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered in the blog. Here are the details of the songs covered si far :-

The sixth and final song from the movie is sung by Asha Bhonsle and Rafi. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan. Incidentally, Shanka Jaikishan had composed music for “Seema”(1955) as ell.

The song is picturised as a dance song. I can identify the lady as Padma Khanna. I am unable to identify the male dancer. Their dance performance is being witnessed by a housefull audience. I cannot recall any old Hindi stagae dance song where the hall is anything but jampacked. 🙂

The audience also include the lead pair of Kabir Bedi and Simi Garewal.

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

ith this song, all the songs of “Seema”(1971) are covered in the blog. The movie thus joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered the movie and the movie “Seema”(1971) thus gets YIPPEED in the blog.

Hello everyone,

I’m back here after another long absence.

And as usual, it is a very special anniversary that brings me back to writing here.

To be honest, I’m very much out of touch with writing nowadays. Can’t even remember when I last wrote anything more than 280 characters. So this post is going to be a struggle – but I still want to go through with it, because it is about someone who is very dear to me.

And not just to me, but to millions of music lovers around the world.

I’m talking about Rafisaab, of course.

Today is his birth anniversary – and I am sure there are many around the world who are remembering him very fondly today. On this day every day, there are also concerts held in various places to celebrate the occasion.

The mark that Rafisaab has left on the Hindi film industry cannot be described in words. The best way to probably understand his impact is to imagine the industry if he’d never been part of it.

It’s extremely hard to imagine it, isn’t it?
How much poorer would the world of music have been!

I often say the word “legend” is overused and abused nowadays. People who don’t have the required stature get loosely referred to as “legends”.

But when you use the same term for a person like Rafisaab, it suddenly feels the other way round. As if the word “legend” doesn’t have the required stature to be used for Rafisaab. 🙂

I’ve written a LOT of posts here on Rafisaab. More than on anyone else, I think. On his birth anniversary every year, death anniversary every year, on various milestone occasions.

I’ve written about his songs, his character, my own experiences listening to him – so yes, I’ve covered the entire gamut of Rafisaab content that I can think of.

And yet, I write not so much to add anything to anyone’s knowledge (most people know more than me anyway), as to offer my own tribute to the great man, in my own small way, on each of these occasions.

So where do I start?

Let me start with his songs.

Only the other day, a couple of weeks ago, I got into the mood to tweet some songs on Twitter. I do that occasionally – just for fun. I listen to a song on youtube, and then tweet it, sometimes with a hashtag #nowlistening.

It wasn’t meant to be a Rafisaab playlist at all – but that’s how it ended up. 🙂
Simple reason – once I start listening to Rafisaab songs, there’s no stopping the flow. So it ended up becoming one long Rafisaab session, which others also seemed to enjoy.

The songs kept flowing, starting with “yahaan badla wafaa ka” to “maine rakha hai mohabbat”, “mujhe dekh kar aapka muskuraana”, “jaag dil-e-deewaana”, “aaj puraani raahon se”, “husnwaale tera jawaab nahin”, “jaane kya dhoondhti rehti hain”, “tumhaari zulf ke”, “caravan guzar gaya”, “sukh ke sab saathi”, “maine shaayad tumhe”, “zara sun haseena-e-naazneen” and so many more.

Different moods – happy and sad.
Different genres – ghazals, bhajans, qawwalis, classical.

And that’s the thing with Rafisaab.
He had such mastery over every form of singing that he never came up short in any one form to disappoint you.
Not only did he have a divine voice, it was also his mastery over his field that set him apart. It was his humility that he often pointed upwards to God, suggesting it was all His doing. But it must have been a combination of a God-given voice, AND a huge amount of hard work. After all, he did riyaaz for hours daily.

Like millions of others, I too consider myself very fortunate to have been able to listen to Rafisaab songs. He was in a league of his own.

And yet, that’s not the only reason I have such a high regard for Rafisaab.
As we all know, Rafisaab was also an exceptionally good human being.
In fact, if there is ever an interview with anyone who knew Rafisaab, while there would obviously be mention of his singing, there would almost invariably be a mention of what an outstanding person he was.

And that’s because this is a rare quality, especially in an industry where artistes tend to get egoistic when they become successful and famous.

Rafisaab was an exception. For many years, he was the biggest name in male playback singing. He could easily have thrown his weight around. Kept people waiting. Demanded a higher fee. Dictated terms to composers who were queuing up to use him for their songs.

But he did none of this.

He was thoroughly professional – always respecting the role of the music director. Even if his stature was much greater than that of the MD.
In fact, after singing a song, he’d seek approval from the composer.
On the rare occasion when the composer wasn’t entirely happy and wanted another take, Rafisaab wouldn’t complain. He’d just comply – after all, the music director was the boss.

This attitude also explains why he didn’t seek higher compensation in the form a share of royalty. To him, he was a singer who had received a sum for rendering a song. Once he’d done that, he’d done his job. He didn’t seek more reward than that. Right or wrong, that was his mindset.

There are many stories about Rafisaab that illustrate what a good human being he was.

How he wouldn’t charge money (except a token one rupee) from struggling music directors.

How he’d donate money to help needy families, even without their knowledge who the benefactor was.

For all his stature and fame, Rafisaab was a remarkably humble person. And not just fake humility, but genuinely so.

When you put all this together, you can only marvel at the person he was.
So brilliant at his field, and yet such a remarkably good human being.

This is why he is SO loved by millions.
Obviously his songs are what first attract him to people, but when they know more about the person, their love and admiration goes to a completely different level.

This is also why, though I haven’t written in ages, I chose to write a post for him today. It’s the least I can do.

Now onto the song for today.

It’s from Bombay Talkie (1970).

I remember hearing about this film as a kid, though I saw it for the first time only a few years ago. The song “typewriter tip tip tip tip” was quite popular, from what I remember.

Such is my memory nowadays that I’ve already forgotten the storyline of the film, though I saw it only a few years ago. But I don’t think it was like the usual Hindi film of the time, seeing as it’s a Merchant-Ivory production. Their movies always had a different feel to them.

The film stars Shashi Kapoor and Jennifer Kendal (his wife in real life).
Should be fun to watch them together.

I think I might just do that – try to watch this film again.
The one advantage of having a poor memory is that you can keep watching the same film again, and each time it feels like the first time. 🙂

The song for today is “tum mere pyaar ki duniya”.

A lively song from Rafisaab, and I daresay, a song quite typical of the time.

Lyrics for this were given to me by Avinashji.
This now seems to be the pattern of my posts here.
Post written by me, lyrics by Avinashji. 🙂
The only difference between this and other posts is that usually Avinashji sends me lyrics, and requests me to write a post. This time I decided to write a post on Rafisaab, and then requested Avinashji to pick a suitable song.
I wanted a happy song, because the occasion is Rafisaab’s birth anniversary – a happy event. 🙂
As always, Avinashji promptly obliged.

I request you to please listen to this happy and lively song, and remember what joy Rafisaab has given us.

Am sure I speak for millions of music lovers when I say that he will always have a very special place in our hearts.

Song-Tum mere pyaar ki duniya mein basi ho jabse (Bombay Talkie)(1971) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
zarre zarre mein
mujhe pyaar nazar aataa hai
meri har saans mein aati hai
tumhaari khushboo
saaraa aalam mujhe
gulzaar nazar aataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
zarre zarre mein
mujhe pyaar nazar aataa hai
meri har saans mein aati hai
tumhaari khushboo
saaraa aalam mujhe
gulzaar nazar aataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jabse

aisaa lagtaa hai ke
hariyaale ghaney pedon mein
tum bhi maujood ho
patton mein chhupi baithhi ho
shaakh hilti hai kisi naazneen
baahon ki tarah
aur gumaan hotaa hai
tum jaise yahin rehti ho
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
zarre zarre mein
mujhe pyaar nazar aataa hai
meri har saans mein aati hai
tumhaari khushboo
saaraa aalam mujhe
gulzaar nazar aataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jabse ae

jab guzartaa hai
mere jism ko baadal chhoo kar
phir koi reshmi aanchal mujhe
yaad aataa hai
main to har cheez mein paataa hoon
tumhaaraa chehra
ishq kya kya mujhe
parchhaayiyaan dikhlaataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
zarre zarre mein
mujhe pyaar nazar aataa hai
meri har saans mein aati hai
tumhaari khushboo
saaraa aalam mujhe
gulzaar nazar aataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se ae

dhoop aur chhaaon ke manzar bhi
ajab manzar hain
jab nazar milti hai
sau teer chalaa dete hain
aur phoolon ke chhalaktey se katore hardam
bin piye hi mujhe
mastaana banaa dete hain
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se
zarre zarre mein
mujhe pyaar nazar aataa hai
meri har saans mein aati hai
tumhaari khushboo
saaraa aalam mujhe
gulzaar nazar aataa hai
tum mere pyaar ki duniyaa mein
basi ho jab se ae

तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
ज़र्रे ज़र्रे में मुझे प्यार नज़र आता है
मेरी हर सांस में आती है
तुम्हारी खुशबू
सारा आलम मुझे
गुलज़ार नज़र आता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
ज़र्रे ज़र्रे में मुझे प्यार नज़र आता है
मेरी हर सांस में आती है
तुम्हारी खुशबू
सारा आलम मुझे
गुलज़ार नज़र आता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे

ऐसा लगता है के
हरियाले घने पेड़ों में
तुम भी मौजूद हो
पत्तों में छुपी बैठी हो
शाख हिलती है किसी नाज़नीं
बाहों की तरह
और गुमाँ होता है
तुम जैसे यहीं रहती हो
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
ज़र्रे ज़र्रे में मुझे प्यार नज़र आता है
मेरी हर सांस में आती है
तुम्हारी खुशबू
सारा आलम मुझे
गुलज़ार नज़र आता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे ए

जब गुज़रता है
मेरे जिस्म को बादल छू कर
फिर कोई रेशमी आँचल मुझे
याद आता है
मैं तो हर चीज़ में पाता हूँ
तुम्हारा चेहरा
इश्क क्या क्या मुझे
परछाईयाँ दिखलाता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
ज़र्रे ज़र्रे में मुझे प्यार नज़र आता है
मेरी हर सांस में आती है
तुम्हारी खुशबू
सारा आलम मुझे
गुलज़ार नज़र आता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे ए

धूप और छाओं के मंज़र भी
अजब मंज़र हैं
जब नज़र मिलती है
सौ तीर चला देतें हैं
और फूलों के छलकते से कटोरे हरदम
बिन पिए ही मुझे
मस्ताना बना देते है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे
ज़र्रे ज़र्रे में मुझे प्यार नज़र आता है
मेरी हर सांस में आती है
तुम्हारी खुशबू
सारा आलम मुझे
गुलज़ार नज़र आता है
तुम मेरे प्यार की दुनिया में
बसी हो जबसे ए

Blog Day :

4533 Post No. : 16100

So we are at it again. For the 161st time in the blog ! We arrive at post number 16100 in the blog with this writeup !

I have mentioned it in the past that we no longer look forward to these century posts with the same eagerness as in the past. This applies not only to blog centuries but also to the centuries of artists. At this moment, a good number of artists are into their ninetees. I propose to take them all up to their respective centuries after we are done with this blog century.

This post too takes up one such case. The artists in questions are Shankar Jaikishan. If some artists are in their 90s, then they are in their 990s- 999 to be precise. This post sees then break into the four figure mark. We have had singers (four) and lyricists (three) who are in fopur figures in the blog. Shankar Jaikishan join them today and become the first music directors to reach 1000 songs in the blog.

I was in quite a dimemma to pick a song for the occasion. All iconic Shankar Jaikishan songs from the golden era of HFM are altready covered. A few leftover songs of that era somehow did not fit the bill. I was looking for a special song- typically a rare song.

Finally I have zoeroed in on a song which qualifies to be called a rare song. It is not a song of 1940s or 1950s. Rather it is a song of recent vintage (by the shandards of this blog).

Moreover, this song is quite unusal in the sense that one would not guess it to be a Shankar Jaikishan song if he is not informed beforehand. One would guess it to be a song composed by Kalyanji Anandji, or R D Burman, or Bppi Lahiri, considering when this song was composed, but this song is a creation of Shankar Jaikishan, or more precisely Shankar (seeing that Jaikishan had already expired by then).

It is quite a surprise that this song did not get popular. I was very much into HFM listening those days, but even I never got to listen to this song even once ! That has to do with the fact that the movie did not do well at the box office. It was not really a surprise seeing that the movie did not star Amitabh Bachchan. The movie starred Jeetendra and Neetu Singh. Jeetendra, alongwith Sri Devi or Jaya Prada could draw crowds, but not Jeetendra and Neetu Singh, and the movie duuly flopped. The songs of this movie, including this song remained unheard by majority of music lovers.

This movie was “Chorni”(1981). I had heard about this movie but I did not consider this movie worthy of watching. So I saved my 3 Rs and 80 paise (ticket for a balcony seat) which I then spent on watching some other “worthy” movie. 🙂

“Chorni”(1981) was produced by V K Sood and directed by Jyoti Sawroop for Kesar Films, Bombay. The movie had Jeetendra, Neetu Singh, Dr Shreeram Laagoo, Indrani Mukherjee, Sonia Sahni, Jalal Agha, Helen, Leela Mishra, Anita, Shashi Kiran, Sunil Dhawan, Sundar Taneja, Rajesh Valecha, Master Shaaka, Baby Suparna, L R Tiwari, Ramlal, Jugnu, Uma Khosla, Parveen Pal etc in it. Aruna Irani, Ajeet, Mohan Choti were also there in guest appearances.

The movie had Six songs in it.

This song, the second song from the movie to appear in the vlog, is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shailly Shailendra is the lyricist. Shankar (under the brandname Shankar Jaikishan) is the composer.

The song is picturised as a club dance song on Helen.

Those were those of disco songs. Music director was clearly under instructions to create a Disco song. The song sounds like a song meant for those days, but it is not a disco song. It is a western style song with western orchestration allright, but it is a proper song with proper lyrics, just how it used to be in Hindi movie songs in pre disco days.

Listening to this song is a scintillating experience. I have listened to this song quite a few times. The song grabs your mindshare on the very first listen. It is not like those songs that one needs to listen to a few times before it grows on you. It grows on you immediately, even before Asha Bhonsle sings hef initial lines.

The video is over four minutes long. The audio is even longer at over six months. The singing is superb, as one expects from Asha Bhonsle. The music is quite incredible to listen to, and the music is what one remembers long after the song is over. What a song. The song may be an unusaul composition from Shankar Jaikishan. The sonbg deserves to be presented in the blog as their 1000th song in the blog.

Here is this special forgotten gem. Let us savour this song and welcome Shankar Jaikishan to the exclusive club of HFM artists who have completed their 1000 sopngs in the blog.

I take this opportunity to thank one and all. Our special thanks to those who haas repeatedly petitioned me. One thousandth song of Shankar Jaikishan was their long pending demand.

We are all happy that Shankar Jaikishan become the first music directors in the blog to reach four figures. In time, they could well become the first music directors whose entire set of 1200 odd HFM compositions may be showcased in the blog. we are just 200 odd songs away from that mark.

So let us celebrated blog’s 16100th post and Shankar Jaikishan’s 1000th song in the blog with this fantastic hidden gem of a song.
