Like how Indians achieved freedom on 15 August 1947, most kids like me achieved their freedom when they started going to college. I achieved my freedom in may/ june 1978, when I passed my matriculation examination and got admitted to college. When I was in school, the only landmark I passed while commuting between home and school was the railway station. But now I came across almost all the movie halls of Ranchi as I commuted between home and college (St Xavier’s College, Ranchi). Being a college going person, I was considered grown up. In reality I was not even 16 at that time and I was not able to handle this new found freedom with responsibility.

So I began to watch movies with a vengeance when I should have been attending practical classes, that took place in the second half coinciding with the matinee show of movies.

It is not that I only watched matinee shows. There were occasions when I would be alone at home. Then I would watch evening and even night shows. Returning back on foot at midnight after the night show was no big deal for me. Law and order was that good in Ranchi those days. I am not aware how things are there today.

‘Jaani Dushman’ (1979) was much in news even before its release. It was supposed to be a mega movie, challenging all the mega movies that had come before, like say ‘Mughal e Azam’ (1960), ‘Waqt’ (1965), ‘Sholay’ (1975) etc. But there was a catch. The censor board felt that the movie was a ‘horror’ movie and watching it would be a dreadful exercise for weak hearts. So Censors, after lots of delays and objections, finally allowed the movie to get released with an A certificate.

I watched this movie in night show. The fact that it was a horror movie, and an A cerificate movie, and thirdly I myself was not an adult till that time did not deter me. Macho people in Bihar (Ranchi was still Bihar those days) did not care for such minor details. 🙂

When I watched the movie, I wondered what was the fuss about this being a ‘horror’ movie. There was no horror whatsoever as far as I was concerned. There was one scene where the ghost is supposedly seen rotating his head while this body is stationary. I could clearly detect that the body was actually built of cardboard, and the ghost (played by Sanjeev Kumar) stood inside the cardboard body and moved his body. Only the most naive people would fail to see this cheap ruse. Instead of feeling any horror, I felt pity at the makers of the movie as well as at the censors.

Even the movie was no great shakes. Indian movie makers have created a false narrative about ichchaadhaari naagin and they keep making movies on this theme. And the gullible movie watchers keep falling for this false narrative.

I was not much impressed with this movie. It was well past midnight when the night show ended and I returned back home on foot, walking some two kms. Most of the walk was along the road running parallel to the rail track going towards Ranchi Railway station.

This movie, which was a damp squib as far as I was concerned, was produced and directed by Raj Kumar Kohli for Shankar Movies, Bombay. The huge star cast of the movie included Sunil Dutt, Sanjeev Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, Neeta Mehta, Shobhini Singh, Roopesh Kumar, Madan Puri, Shakti, Anwar Hussain, Amrish Puri, Murad, Sulochana, Jayshree T., Indrani Mukherji, Aarti, Sheetal, Raza Murad, Jagdeep, Paintal Mac Mohan, Ram Soni, Maruti etc. Then there were special appearances by Vinod Mehra, Vikram, Prem Nath, Rekha, Neetu Singh, Bindiya Goswami, Sarika. Yogita Bali and Aruna Irani were in guest appearances. Then there was “above all- special apperance”- by Jeetendra.

Was I impressed by this star cast ? Not a chance. Where were the biggest names of the industry ? No Amitabh Bachchan, No Dharmendra, No Vinod Khanna. No Hema Malini, No Zeenat Aman, No Parveen Babi. I was suitably underwhelmed with the cast of the movie.

The songs of the movie were popular. The Rafi doli song soon became an iconic song, at par with his earlier doli song “Baabul ki Duaayen leti Jaa“. Apart from that I found most other songs s as just so so stuff.

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

Blog post number Song Date of post Singer (s)
459 Tere haathon mein pahna ke choodiyaan 28 December 2008 Rafi, Asha Bhonsle
11607 O meri jaan bol meri jaan 28 November 2015 Kishore KUmar, Anuradha Paudwal
14521 Mausam na koi bahaar jaisa 24 July 2018 Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle
15147 Chalo re doli uthhaao kahaar piya milan ki rut aayi 31 July 2019 Rafi
16751 Saare rishtey naate tod ke aa gayi 7 January 2022 Lata

Only one song from the movie is left to be covered. Here is that song.

This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Shatrughan Sinha utters a few words and that is enough for him to get credited as a singer in this song. Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. The song is picturised on Reena Roy and Shatrughan Sinha. The previous song covered earlier this year was also picturised on Reena Roy but there it was sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Reena Roy singing separate songs in the voices of different Mangeshkar sisters in the same movie, this did not appear anything special those days, but with passage of time this must be regarded as something special. There may not be so many cases where the same actor sings in the voices of different siblings.

As mentioned earlier I did not find the songs of the movie (apart from one Rafi solo) any great shakes. But I was in a minority. With time, these songs have retained their popularity. Youngsters, may of them not even born when this movie was released appear quite impressed with the songs of the movie. This song, both its singing and picturisation gets favorable comments from most people watching this song on YouTube. When I think about it, I have to grudgingly admit that the songs of this movie are good songs to listen to.

I did not pay much attention to this song in the past. But now that I paid attention, I realise that it is nicely sung song by Asha Bhonsle. With this song, Asha Bhonsle silently and unnoticeably completes 2900 songs in the blog.

So, with this song, “Jaani Dushman”(1979) gets YIPPEED in the blog whereas Asha Bhonsle completes a barely believable 2900 songs in the blog.

Here is the song. Enjoy !


Song-Aisi waisi na samajh sajna(Jaani Dushman)(1979) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Shatrughan Sinha, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

aisi waisi na samajh sajna
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
jaan de doongi ya jaan le loongi
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
jaan de doongi ya jaan le loongi
aisi waisi na samajh sajna

itna to mera dil bhi
jaanta zaroor hai
kitni tu mere paas hai
aur kitni tu door hai

kaante ya phool jo bhi chaahe
ismein daal de
kaante ya phool jo bhi chaahe
ismein daal de
maine to zindagi ka daaman bichha diya
maine to zindagi ka daaman bichha diya
daaman bichha diya
abhi na tu samjhe mujhe apna
haan
mujhe apna
haaye mujhe apna aa aa
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
jaan de doongi ya jaan le loongi ee
aisi waisi na samajh sajna

jo dekh raha hoon kahin wo
khwaab to nahin
kaanton ke bhes mein chhupa
gulaab to nahin

is kadar tu ab dil ke kareeb hai
is kadar tu ab dil ke kareeb hai
lagta hai mere pyaar ka tu hi
naseeb hai
naseeb hai
maine jo kaha
use yaad
haan yaad
zara yaad rakhna aa aa
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
aisi waisi na samajh sajna
jaan de doongi ya jaan le loongi
aisi waisi na samajh sajna

Rafi Sahab’s Legendary Associations – 10
———————————————————

73rd Republic Day of India

ek hai apni zameen
ek hai apna gagan
ek hai apna jahaan
ek hai apna watan
apne sabhi sukh ek hain
apne sabhi gham ek hain
aawaaz do
aawaaz do ham ek hain
ham ek hain

“What is it that I want? The same as you, the same as everyone else. I want to be physically safe and healthy, financially secure and personally happy. I want the same confidence in my abilities, in my environment and social acceptance. I have the same worries and aspirations for future. Same apprehensions if the children will turn out well and have good careers or not.”
This is me, in conversation with a dear friend and a long-time colleague. This conversation happened some 15-16 years ago. Actually, we were on the same page in the topic, she was not coming from any opposite direction at all. But she was the one clear on the causes of a problem, I was the one confused.
But things are a lot clearer to me now, exactly what I wanted to explain at that time is more obvious now.

apne sabhi sukh ek hain
apne sabhi gham ek hain

The causes of happiness for the common man are the same everywhere, whatever is the religion, caste, race, region, language, state or country they are allied to. The aspirations are same and the apprehension and causes of sadness are also the same essentially. This is the way a social environment develops, where people go and join hands with each other in times of happiness and sadness.

Today the country is celebrating 73rd Republic Day.

The constitution gives us the right to live with dignity. What is a person’s dignity? it is not just the pride in its citizenship, its values and its integrity. A person’s dignity is the self-belief that I have done nothing wrong and don’t mean any harm to anyone. And a feeling of security, that me, my life, my livelihood and my family is safe. A sense of belonging that makes us feel responsible for the safety and security of fellow citizens and has assurance of reciprocation. Also, that I deserve all that I command. Personally, socially and professionally.

As a citizen it is a right to demand and acquire good education, an adequate health facility, a great judicial system and better law enforcement agencies, plus a media which gives us information, that really mattered. Real information, on what has been done to give the above rights to the citizens.

With the slow and gradual increase of opportunities in education and personal growth, the inequalities have also increased. A success story in monetary terms and career, is just not enough. It is also important to have balanced and broad-minded success stories. Rationality and seeing an issue in a truly international perspective are what will make a successful person intellectually empowered.

At the ripe old age of 75, we should have been a mature people.
Do we see enough, do we care enough?
Do we bother to call out the misbehaviour, of miscreants we see on the streets? Are we bold to speak out against injustice?
Are we smart enough to sift through the crap fed to us day in and day out in the guise of news and entertainment?
Do we bother to check the authenticity of WhatsApp forwards before sharing with other people?
Do we even care that our ‘can’t care less’ attitude is destroying the centuries old social fabric of our society and stripping us of our identity as a people, the whole world, looked at with respect?

Munshi Premchand said “Communalism, whenever it raises its head, it comes within a cloak. Because it is ashamed of coming alone or walking alone. “
Yes, at the age of 75, we are a nation of most young people in the world. Being second largest population in the world, with an average age of 28 years, the figures of young people and children are just hugest in the world. If these young people are a part of work force and aspire for personal growth and are able to collectively individually, contribute to the nation building, what can be built and achieved is mind boggling.
But are we looking at what the young population of this country is aspiring to be?
What is the ambition of an average Indian youngster?
what are their hopes?
What are their priorities?

It is very important to channelise the energies and ambitions of youth towards personal and professional excellence. There is enough talent, brains and hands in this country to make it an economic force. But for that we have to rise above the politics of religion, caste, us and they, region etc.

There was a story of cats and a monkey, we used to hear and read as children. Lately I have not seen it repeated anywhere. So here is the story for refreshing the memory of readers:

Two cats are fighting for a roti. The monkey comes and tells them to stop fighting and make two equal pieces of the roti. The cats agree and make two parts. The monkey tells them the two parts are not equal, one is larger and the other is smaller. He advises the cat holding the larger piece, to break a small part and give it to him, so both the cats have equal portions. The result is again the same, the parts of the roti the cats have are still not equal. So, the other cat is asked to break a small piece and give it to the monkey, to establish the equality. So on and so forth the dispute continues, till the whole roti is finished, while the cats remain empty handed in the end.

Similar is the case of inequality in opportunities in our set up. In the name of equalising those opportunities, the opportunists among us are gobbling up the parts and parcel. Keeping the marginalised sections divided and fighting imaginary/perceptive fights with each other. It is not a true cut and dried, there are multiple layers to these differences, perceptions of not getting a fair share of the ‘roti’. The majority/minorities tussle is but one layer of it and the cloak which Munish Premchand referred to. The real divide here is still the have’s and have nots. Then there is a gender divide, which is inherent and keeps getting uglier.

Where does all this leave the common man, with its apprehensions and aspirations? With their same dukh and sukh, I spoke about in the first para.
“I have the same worries and aspirations for future. Same apprehensions if the children will turn out well and have good careers or not.”

It is true, that once I had children, all my self-interests and care less impulsiveness gave way to worries of the future. Not the least of which was the worry for their safety, physical, emotional and psychological. Major part of their time was spent outside the home, in school and in the creche. How the things that they imbibe from the social atmosphere will affect their character, their thought processes and their choices and priorities? This was a cause of worry for me.

Yes, these ills in society are stemming for this one vice, i. e. selfishness. A few days ago, I had a big discussion with my son, regarding the self-interest of sections of society, and the marginalised sections of the society, who are still outside a certain margin. This margin is not unbreachable. We can see it breached in some developed states in the country. In most parts of the country, the focus of the populace is on the personal growth, better life quality and the common interests of the common man.

My son, interestingly was coming from the other direction in the discussion. I have managed to make an inroad in the way, he looks at opportunities for himself and for others, his fellow countrymen, who have the talent, ability and deserve to take their rightful place in the progress and development of the country, I hope, because he has not come to me with any counter-arguments on the topic :-).

This is my quest to make a balanced, truly intellectual success story out of my children. There is no ‘ism’ in this thought process, just a bit of logic and unselfishness. The conscious unwillingness to get embroiled in a conflict of interests which is a matter of perception. This really is a distraction, which our youth do not need.

The problems and issues in our country are centric and specific to our country. These have to be looked at with a prism of our own, not look for solutions to it, from examples of other nations and other societies.

I will move on to the song post.

The song is an iconic song from the 1981 film “Kranti’. The punch line, or the concluding line of the song is

Mera chana hai apni marzi kaa
Marzi ka bhai marzi ka
Yeh dushman hai khudgarzi kaa
Khudgarzi ka khudgarzi kaa

“mera chana’ can be interpreted as ‘my passion’ or ‘my goal’, which really is to treat ‘khudgarzi’ i.e. selfishness as the enemy.

The song is iconic, as it has three legends of hindi film music singing it with the son of another legend. Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar are singing for Dilip Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha and Hema Malini, whereas Nitin Mukesh is giving playback to Manoj Kumar in the song, which is written by Santosh Anand and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

I used to hear the ‘sponsored programme’ of this film on Vividh bharati, I have seen the movie also long back. But I only recalled that Rafi Sahab is singing just one line for Dilip Kumar in this song. But now that I have seen and heard the song multiple times, the lines Rafi sahab is singing towards the end of the song, are definitely very significant and elevate the whole song to another level. The composition and orchestration have been kept very simple and basic by Laxmikant-pyarelal, so this is not a crowded song, with all these greats singing their parts, independently and together, with male and female chorus to add to the group.

This is the only song of these four singers. For Rafi sahab’s series, this must be the last such song remaining to be posted in the blog where Rafi sahab and Kishore Kumar are singing together, with or without Lata Mangeshkar and Nitin Mukesh. For Rafi-Lata duets, there are a few songs, at least one of them I plan to include in the series. So, this post takes care of Rafi sahab’s association with Kishore kumar, Nitin Mukesh and Santosh Anand.

Let us go to the song, and listen to the rendition which is a real ‘hair raising’ experience.

On this blog we often celebrate anniversaries of various artists of Hindi Films and Hindi Film Music. Time to time we also celebrate birthdays of our team members who are also known as ‘Atulites’. So today we are celebrating birthday of two Atulites and one well-wisher of this blog (read as ‘family members of the team members 😊).

This post is to wish Atulites Pradeep Raghunathan ji and Peevesie’s Mom ji a very happy birthday today. On behalf of all team members, I wish them a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day. Also today is the birthday of my wife. So, we wish her too a very happy birthday and many happy returns of the day 😊 (she also has her ‘hand’ behind me – and she also has her share in my being a successful ‘Atulite’ for the last nine years four months… 😊)

As is customary for us, we will now listen to a song which suits today’s occasion perfectly. This is a ‘birthday celebration song’. It is from the ‘1989’ movie ‘Saaya’. I was not aware either of the song or this movie. I came across this song only a couple of days back (when I was looking for a birthday song).

‘Saaya-1989’ was directed by R. Keshu (I guess he is Keshu Ramsay) for ‘Century Films’. It was produced by Naval Kumar and presented by R.C. Kumar.

It had Shatrughan Sinha, Poonam Dhillon, Danny Denzongpa, with Pinchoo Kapoor, Viju Khote, Beena, Baby Tabassum, supported by Iftekhar, Anjali Sen, Shammi, Sudhir Dalvi, Darshan, Prakash and Kaajal Kiran.

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Kumar Ramsay. Dialogues for this movie were written by Jagdish Kanwal. Shafi Ur Rahman was associate dialogue writer for this movie.

Editing of this movie was done by Bal Korde.

Lyrics for the songs in this movie were written by Anjaan and music was composed by Bappi Lahiri.

Asha Bhonsle, Nazia Hassan, Zoheb, Uttara Kelkar, and Munna were those whose voices was used for the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Poonam Dhillon lip-syncs the song on screen. Shatrughan Sinha and Baby Tabassum (whose birthday is being celebrated) are also seen alongwith many others.

Let us now enjoy this beautiful song and wish the birthday boys and birthday girls a very happy birthday today and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Hullo Atuldom

The favourite singer of millions of Indian Mohammed Rafi was born on 24th December 1924. That means we, his fans, would have been celebrating his 97th birthday this year. But that was not to be. He just left this mortal world in July 1980 at the age of 55.

But we, his fans, need not be sad as he has left us a library full of music albums-both filmy and non-filmy. There will be many who will pay tributes to this great soul- the soft-spoken, gentle, kindhearted giant with their own personal touch. There will be programs across the various entertainment platforms that would highlight the music that Rafi saab was associated with.

For me, the day begins by listening to the Radio- Radio Ceylon to be exact- and figuring out which of the songs that are played there I have heard, and which I have never heard. Then I may move on to listening to other Radio stations.

Small Trivia:- Just found that Radio Ceylon is a year younger than Rafisaab. The precursor to Radio Ceylon- Colombo Radio – was formally launched on 16th December 1925.

I am sure we will be treated to the regular fare of Rafi hits like ‘o duniya ke rakhwaale’; ‘sukh ke sab saathi’; and possibly ‘ta ra ri ara ri ra ra ri’; ‘yeh chaand sa roshan chehera’; ‘pardesiyon se na ankhiyan milana,’ etc and a few more soulful numbers. We may also get a dose of his popular songs from the 70s like ‘o meri mehbooba, mehbooba mehbooba’, ‘kya hua tera wada’ etc. In between some channel will also squeeze in a ‘meri awaaz suno’; ‘dil ka soona saaz tarana dhoondega’; and some of his other great songs.

Additionally, we will have forwards from friends on WhatsApp and Facebook (the new age social platforms) that will give us links to sites that speak of the greatness of the Soul that Mohd. Rafi was.

Here is my tiny attempt to bring on-stage a song that was sung by the great Mohd Rafi under the baton of Ravi. It is a rarely heard song that was written by Verma Malik. It is from the 1977 release “Aadmi Sadak Ka”. Only one song from this film has been discussed on the blog so far and that was the most famous song of the movie viz. Aaj mere yaar ki shaadi hai. this was in 2013, eight years ago.

Today’s song features Zaheera, Shatrughan Sinha, Vikram (who was born Moin Uddin Shah), Sujit Kumar and Deven Verma. We see that Zaheera, Shatru and Vikram are in disguise.

‘Aadmi Sadak Ka’ was a produced and directed by Devendra Goel. It was a bilingual- made in Hindi and Marathi (called ‘Dost Asava Tar Asa’). It was the story of a well-placed family that has three sons (two of whom are married) and a daughter. The family falls into hard times when the patriarch dies, the family fortunes are usurped by the older two sons, at the behest of their wives, and the mother and the younger siblings are shown the door. The youngest son Chander (Vikram) takes up a job as a waiter and due to his good conduct keeps getting promoted and also becomes co-owner of the hotel. Now he is in competition with his older brothers and after the usual twists and turns the family is reunited and that brings the movie to ‘The End’.

With this post we also remember Deven Verma whose death anniversary was on 2nd December. He was born in Pune to Rajasthani father and Kutchi mother. He was son-in-law of Ashok Kumar, his wife was Rupa. He was a multi-talented actor who was appreciated in comic roles, but when I saw “Devar” (1966) I was stumped by the serious character he played. Devendu Verma (birth name of Deven Verma) died of a heart attack and kidney failure in 2014.
Here is the song with Anuradha Paudwal and Deven Verma singing with Mohd. Rafi.

It can be seen from the table of 1988 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 43 songs in 21 movies released in 1988. So she made a recovery of sorts after singing the lowest number of songs in a year in 1987 (just 21).

7 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1988 have been covered in the blog. That leaves us with 36 songs from movies of 1988 that are yet to be covered.

All Lata Mangeshkar songs of one movie of 1998, namely “Libaas”(1988) have been covered. So 36 Lata Mangeshkar songs from 20 movies of 1988 are still available for discussion in the blog.

Alphabetically “Dharam Yudhh”(1988) is the first movie of 1988 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Dharam Yudhh”(1988) was produced by Pawan Kumar (Secretary of Shatrughan Sinha) and directed by Sudarshan Nag for Amiya’s Bombay. The movie had Sunil Dutt, Shatrughan Sinha, Kimi Katkar, Aditya Pancholi, Suresh Oberoi, Saaniya, Sushma Sheth, Anjana Mumtaz, Ranjeet, Pran, Lalita Kumari(Sinha),Sunil Dhawan, Umesh Khanna, Rajesh Nigam, Prakash Johri, Anurag Sharma, Disco Shanti etc in it. This movie was a remake of Pakistani Punjaabi movie “Wadera”(1985).

“Dharam Yudhh”(1988) had six songs in it. It had one multiple version song which was sung by Lata Maneshkar. Here is that song. This bhai bahan song has two versions (happy and sad). Both are sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Kulwant Jani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The happy version is picturised on Saania aka Saniya and Shatrughan Sinha in happier times with Shatrughan Sinha hoping to perform bidaai of his sister. The sad version shows the sister lying dead and it is her arthi instead of doli that is being carried ! One can also see Sunil Dutt, Lalita Kumari Sinha and Kimmi Katkar in the picturisation.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

ith this song, “Dharam Yudhh”(1988) makes its debut in the blog.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 143 # Kalyanji-Anandji – Year 1975 (2)
———————————————–———————————————

Yesterday 30th June 2021 was the 93rd birth anniversary of Kalyanjibhai Virjibhai Shah (30 June 1928 – 24 August 2000) of the music director duo Kalyanji-Anandji.

On this occasion I am presenting a song from the ‘1975’ movie ‘Anokhaa’.

In the year ‘1975’ there were twelve films where the music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Here is the list of these movies and their status on the blog.

Sno. Title (Year) Censor certificate date Lyricist Represented on the Blog
1 Anokhaa(1975) 02.04.1975 Indeewar, Sawan Kumar Being introduced today
2 Apne Dushman(1975) 19.11.1975 Verma Malik, Qamar Jalalabadi
3 Bhoolaa Bhatkaa(1975) 13.10.1975 Anand Bakshi
4 Chori Mera Kaam(1975) 30.04.1975 Verma Malik Yes/Yippeeee’ed
5 Dharmaatmaa(1975) 30.04.1975 Indeewar Y
6 Do Thug(1975) 05.12.1975 Rajinder Krishan
7 Faraar(1975) 11.11.1975 Rajinder Krishan Y
8 Himaalaya Se Ooncha(1975) 15.04.1975 Indeewar Y
9 Monto(1975) 15.05.1975 Verma Malik
10 Rafoo Chakkar(1975) 02.01.1975 Gulshan Bawra Y
11 Uljhan(1975) 31.10.1975 M.G. Hashmat Y
12 Zorro(1975) 31.10.1975 Verma Malik

We can see in the above table that alphabetically ‘Anokhaa’ is the oldest movie which has so far not been represented on the blog from the year 1975 where music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Today we are going to listen to a song from this movie.

‘Anokhaa-1975’ was directed by Jugal Kishore for ‘Jugal Productions, Bombay’. It had Shatrughan Sinha, Zareena Wahab, A.K. Hangal, Imtiaz, Kanhaiyalal, Maruti, Jayshree T., Paintal, Mohan Shery, Jeevan, Hercules, Mirza Musharraf, Tulsi, Meher Mittal, Badri Prasad, Brijednra Mohan, Ved Gandhi, Vikrant, Omi Chopra, Ratnesh, Meher Banu, Chandar Singh, Mohan Jery, Bhupendra, Bipin Kumar, Bholanath, Master Kotak, Mahender Singh and others.
Meena T. makes a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 02.04.1975.

This movie had five songs (including one two-part song) written by Indeevar (three songs, one of them a two-part song) and Sawan Kumar (two songs).

Here is the list of songs of this movie as given in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Lyricist
01 Apna desh videsh kea age haath naa failaaye Mukesh, chorus Indeevar
02 part 1 Jab aayi hai wo gaaon se hamaar gori baala(part 1)1 Mahendra Kapoor, chorus Indeevar
02 part 2 Jab jaayega Shahar se gori ka ghar waala (part 2) Amit Kumar, chorus Indeevar
03 Jaaneman aap hamse muhabbat naa kijiye Mohd Rafi, Suman Kalyanpur Sawan Kumar
04 Meri baaton se tum bore ho gayi ho to Kishore Kumar, Usha Timothy Sawan Kumar
05 Dharti hai hamaari jaan, jaan lagaa kar boyen dhaan Mohd Rafi, chorus Indeevar

I have not watched this movie and I have not even listened to its songs earlier, so I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Today’s song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Suman Kalyanpur and on screen it is lip synced by Shatrughan Sinha and young looking Zareena Wahab. Paintal and others are also seen in the picturization of this song.

Lyrics for the today’s song are by Sawan Kumar and music is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

Let us listen to the song now …

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 123 # Qawwalis – 8
——————————————-—–—————-——

Welcome all to the today’s ‘special post’. Special because, we pay our tributes to Khayyam Saab(18 February 1927 – 19 August 2019) on his ninety-fourth birth anniversary today on 18th February’2021.

On this occasion, we are going to listen to a ‘qawwali’ composed by him for the movie ‘Chambal Ki Kasam-1979’.

This ‘qawwali song’ under the above series is coming after a long gap of more than three and half years. The last time I had shared a ‘Qawwali’ was on 26.06.2017 and that qawaali too, like this one, was from the pen of Sahir Ludhianvi.

I had earlier planned to present today’s qawwali for the same occasion last year, however I was unable to send the article at that time.

We have one hundred and sixty-three songs under the category of ‘Qawwalis’.
Today’s ‘qawwali’ is only the second ‘qawwali composition’ of Khayyam Saab to appear on the blog.
The only previous Khayyam qawaali in the blog was this song from ‘Shankar Hussain-1976’ which was posted on 22.05.2011.

But the case with the lyricist Sahir Ludhianvi is totally different. He, so far has twenty-five of his ‘qawwali songs’ on the blog. And today’s song will be his twenty-sixth qawwali song on the blog (more statistics on ‘Qawwali’ on the blog will be coming here in future posts). 😊

Today’s ‘Qawwali’ written by Sahir Ludhianvi can be termed as a ‘social-muqaabla qawwali’ 😊 between a ‘law abiding Police officer’ and a person who has lost his faith in ‘law and order’ and hence doing ‘his self-styled justice with the ‘goons’ in the society’.

We are all aware that in our Hindi movies we have many types of qawwalis created for a particular situation taking a‘liberty’ from the purest form of ‘qawwali’ is i.e., ‘sufiana’…

“Chambal Ki Kasam-1979” was an M.P.D. Productions presentation. It was produced by V L Murlidhar and directed by Ram Maheshwary. It had Raj Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Moushmi Chatterjee, Farida Jalal, Ranjeet, Nirupa Roy, Paintal, Gopal Sehgal, R. Tiwari, Usha Kiran, Peace Kanwal, Jagdish Raj, Nazir Hussain, Gufi, Paro Devi, Maruti, Uma Khosla, Raj Rani, Master Bhagwan, Gurucharan, Usha (Gwalior), Pandit Ganga Prasad (Gwalior), Mansaram, Master Rajesh, Master Rahul, Master Sonu, Master Rajiv, Baby Shaloo, and Manu Arora.

Pradeep Kumar and Amjad Khan makes a guest appearance and a special appearance in this movie respectively.

Story of this movie was written by M.K. Tamanna and Screenplay was written by Benoy Chatterjee. Dialogues of this movie were written by Sagar Sarhadi and Safdar Hussain. Additional Dialogues were by Ela Maheshwary. Editing for this movie was done by D.N. Pai and M.S. Shinde.

This movie had eight songs, which were sung by Jagjit Kaur, Lata Mangeshkar, Manna Dey, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd Rafi.
Sahir Ludhianvi is the lyricist for all the songs and music is composed by Khayyam Saab.

So far, five songs of this movie ‘Chambal Ki Kasam-1979’ have been posted on the blog as given below;

Let us now enjoy to this wonderful ‘qawwali’ sung by Manna Dey and Mahendra Kapoor. It is performed on screen by Shatrughan Sinha (lip syncing in Manna Dey’s voice) and Raj Kumar (lip syncing in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice). The two actors are seen trying to score brownie points over the other in this lyrical muqaablaa -😊. Finally the ‘law’ has the last laugh in archtypical Hindi movie style …

Also seen in the picturization of this song are Nirupa Roy, Moushumi Chatterjee and Farida Jalal with many other artists.

This ‘qawwali’ composition by Khayyam Saab is in his own style and it grows on us if we listen to it more than once …

Remembering Khayyam Saab …

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 108 # Tribute to Lyricist – Anjaan #
——————————————————————————–

Today 28th Oct’2020 is the ninetieth birth anniversary (born on 28.10.1930 in Varanasi) of Lalji Pandey better known to us by his pen-name ‘Anjaan’.

As per our blog statistics he has written over 1300 songs during his career in Hindi movies. Most of his works were in collaborations with composers Kalyanji–Anandji, Laxmikant-Pyarelal, R. D. Burman and Bappi Lahiri.

He passed away at the age of sixty-six on 3rd of Septemeber’1997 in Mumbai.

On his ‘birth anniversary’ I was looking for a song from a new movie where he had penned all the songs.

I am taking the readers to the decade of seventies. Today we will listen to an enjoyable song from that decade. This song was frequently heard on radio those days. It was perhahs the only known song from the movie.

I have not watched this movie so I am in no position to discuss much about it.

The movie is “Jwaalaamukhi”(1980). So it is another same name movie getting introduced in the blog.

“Jwaalaamukhi-1980” was directed by Prakash Mehra for Baboo Mehra Productions, Bombay. It had Waheeda Rehman, Shatrughan Sinha, Reena Roy, Vinod Mehra, Shabana Azmi, Bindu, Kader Khan, Shreeram Lagoo, Pran, Ram Sethi, Bhola, Yunus Parvez, Shivraj, Asha Chandra, Mumtaz Begam, Goga, Kirti, Uttam Sodi, Jugnu and others.

Amjad Khan, Aruna Irani and Raj Babbar had ‘special appearance’ in the movie.

The movie was passed by Censor Board on 17.12.1980.

I do not remember how this movie had fared at the box office so I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the movie and its songs.

The movie had five songs including a music track as mentioned in HFGK and listed below (our new practice now onwards while introducing a movie 😊)

All the songs were written by Anjaan and music was composed by Kalyanji-Anandji.

None of the songs from this movie made it to the ‘annual list of Binaca Geetmala’ of 1981 (as the movie was released in December’1980).
When I thought that the today’s song should be more popular as I liked it listening then too and could have made to the list or ‘shadow list’ of the ‘binaca geetmala’ (or songs that could not make it to the finals as compiled by Anil Bhargava), to my surprise it was not. However, one other song from this movie “Paan, beedi, cigarette, tambaaku, na sharaab, ham ko nasha hai muhabbat ka janaab’ sung by Kishore Kumar made it to this ‘shadow’ list.

List of songs in this movie as appearing in HFGK (1971-1980) Vol-V.

Song Title Singer
1) Hum tere bina bhi nahin jee sakte … Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle, Hemlata
2) Hmm hmm tujhe sab pyaar karte hai…ye chehre pe chehraa Kishore Kumar
3) Kabhi tumne kisi ko phaansaa … Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar
4) Hmm welcome …. hamko to nashaa muhabbat ka hai janaab Kishore Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha
5) Music –

let us now enjoy this wonderful and highly hummable song. It is picturized on Shabana Azmi, Shatrughan Sinha, Vinod Mehra and Reena Roy who are performing on the song while many others are seen in the picturization of this song.

Lyrics of this song were sent by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day : 4467 Post No. : 15958

Hullo Atuldom

Today’s date(10 cctober 2020) is rather unique. Fellow ASAD follower Satyajitji, from down-under, pointed it out. 10102020- “never before, never again” was the reaction to that from another regular follower of the blog. Of course it is a “unique arrangement of the numbers that form the date which is appreciated by our brain”. A true statement by our in-house encyclopaedia.

Today’s post is a rather difficult one too. Never before have I faced such a dilemma. It is a case of too many options. I sifted through a whole lot of songs before I made a choice.

The song features a heroine who was not so great-looking when she made her debut in 1970. She was extremely ordinary. Very gawky. She has said in many of her interviews that she was very uncomfortable wearing all those funny, awkward dresses and costumes. She was not happy doing the dance steps she was made to perform. She was cast opposite heroes old enough to be her father- she was hardly 13 or 14 when she made her debut. She didn’t have an elder to guide her in choosing films like her contemporary Hema Malini who had her mother with her at every stage in her career.

Her first film was not in Hindi though; it was in Telugu as a child actress- not one but two- one as a 4-year old in 1958 and next in 1966 when she was 12. Her next film was in Kannada with Dr. Rajkumar as the male lead in 1969.

But she accepted all that came her way. She has survived in an industry where fortunes change every Friday. She learnt the art of perfect make-up first. Then followed it up with some strict regimen and went from gawky to gorgeous. She was already good at emoting and dancing she just polished them up and learnt from her job and gave it all she had. For some of her heroes she was a lucky mascot and sure route to success whenever their career hit a few flops. And Jeetendra has said this in so many words once. And she doesn’t tire of admitting that if given a second chance she will love to walk the same path again.

I need not specify that I am talking of Bhanurekha Ganesan who is popular as Rekha- the sweet heart of a whole generation of moviegoers. There was a time when Hema Malini was my personal favourite as also the favourite of a few of my classmates. Then I saw “Khoobsurat” 1980 (I don’t tire of telling this) following it up with “Agreement” “Jal Mahal” and the best of the times-“Umrao Jaan”. “Umrao Jaan” was the best in terms of acting, direction, songs and small wonder that she was awarded the National Award for the best Actress for that year. I had seen a few of Rekha’s movies prior to “Khoobsurat” too but most of those movies had her playing the typical film heroine where she just had to look an eye-candy flutter her eyelashes, sing a song too and scream her way through. But she was earnest in all of those too.

She was cast in many two-heroine movies like “Nagin” (this had more than two heroines), “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”, “Ram Balram” etc. She was heroine to actors of the 60s- Raj Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Rajendra Kumar, Dharmendra, Shashi Kapoor, Feroz Khan, Biswajeet, Deb Mukherjee, Sanjeev Kumar (I am sure I am missing a few) and actors who made their debut in the later years of the 60s- Rajesh Khanna, Jeetendra, Sanjay Khan etc. She has also paired with Navin Nischol (hero in her debut film), Anil Dhawan, Randhir Kapoor, Rakesh Roshan, Amitabh Bachchan, Shatrughan Sinha, even Rishi Kapoor and Mithun Chakravarty. Some actors who were her fans as youngsters also got to be her hero- Anil Kapoor (another ageless wonder who has done two with her), Akshay Kumar for example. But Rekha herself did movies with Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand (whose fan she was) rather late in their careers. She was Shashi Kapoor’s Vasantsena in “Utsav” and Rakesh Roshan’s avenging angel in “Khoon Bhari Maang”.

Sorry I can go on and on and people will say a fan is at work here. But I cannot get enough of her and when I chanced upon this video of Hema Malini’s 70th birthday I was supremely pleased as it gave me both my favourites in one video. Such a lot of camaraderie between the two beauties, difficult to choose who is more beautiful

Getting to today’s song, it is from a movie which was directed by Manmohan Desai. As per the tradition of Manmohan Desai movies we have Randhir Kapoor and Shatrughan Sinha as brothers who get separated as children. Both like the same girl but the girl likes the simpleton from the village who has respect for even a night-club dancer. I shall not give the story of the movie will just give the name of the movie- Rampur Ka Laxman.

Wishing our ageless diva a very happy birthday with this song which shows her in one of those costumes that I spoke of earlier. It doesn’t compliment her and that hairdo was the standard which all heroines sported back then. Plus not to miss the kilos of makeup that she had on. If my memory is correct this was a song at the birthday party of the character played by Rekha and we have Sulochana (who was the mother of the heroes playing Rekha’s nanny), Roopesh Kumar, Raj Mehra, and a smart young looking Ranjeet (who is waiting in the wings for spoiling the party).

kyon mere yaar
maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali
arre pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

jo bhi kare pyaar
main uska yaar
ghalat mujhe na samajhna
main to yahaan
aaya hoon milan ke liye
main subah shaam sabka ghulaam
itna magar yaad rakhna
bura hoon main
bas dushman ke liye
ulfat ke jo pyaase ho tum
chaahat ka hoon mai nbhi sawaali
pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise waha
kyon mere yar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

abhi ye sama hai meharbaan
jhoom ke jeele deewaane
kaisi ee haaye mastaani raat hai ae
zindagi ka lele maza
phir kya ho kaun jaane
bhaai mere ae
kuchh na tere haath hai
do char pal lehraake chal
hai zindagi kab rukne waali
pyaar ka samay kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali

khel hansi aadat meri
chup rehna main na jaanoon
maine yahi ab tak jaana nahin
tum bhi mere
tum bhi mere
sabko apna hi maanoon
par ye dil sabka deewaana nahin
aur jispe hai deewaana dil
uski ada sabse niraali
pyaar ka samya kam hai jahaan
ladte hain log kaise wahaan
kyun mere yaar maine bhi aaj
kya baat kahi de taali
