“Mera Naam Joker” (1970) was produced and directed by Raj Kapoor for R K Films, Boombay. This movie had Raj Kapoor, Manoj Kumar, Simi Garewal, Rishi Kapoor, Dharmendra, Dara Singh, Kseniya Ryabinkina, Padmini, Rajendra Kumar, Om Prakash, Rajendra Nath, Achala Sachdev, Eduard Sjereda etc in it.

Raj Kapoor (14 December 1924 – 2 June 1988), the producer-director-actor of this movie was born this day 93 years ago.

Ten songs from “Mera Naam Joker” (1970) have already been covered in the blog. Only one song from the movie is left. This remaining song is an English song which is sung by school kids, including a young Raju (played by Rishi Kapoor, making his debut in movies with this role) as Mary (Simi Garewal), their school teacher gets married to David (Manoj Kumar).

The song is sung by an unknown voice and chorus. Lyricist is not known. It is composed by Shankar Jaikishan, of course.

I request our readers with keener ears to help point our a few missing/ correct words that I may have missed in the lyrics. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the identity of the singer as well as the lyricist of this song.

With this song, the eleventh and final song from the movie, “Mera Naam Joker” (1970) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.

I was under the impression that “Johar Mehmood in Goa”(1965) was YIPPEED with the last song that was discussed in the blog. Now it turns out that I had incorrectly assumed that song as a multiple version song and that a song from the movie was actually left to be discussed.

So here is this missing song from “Johar Mehmood in Goa”(1965). This song is sung by Kamal Barot, Shamsdhad Begam and chorus. Akhtar Romani is the lyricist. Music is composed by Kalyanji Anandji.

Today (17 octobr 2014) is the birth anniversary of Simi Garewal (DoB 17 october 1947). If there is one person who can be described to be an ageless wonder then it has to be her. She has not changed much in appearance for over 50 years right from the time she made her debut in Hindi movies in 1962.

During my early teen days, I was watching movies at the rate of 8 – 10 movies per week. It did not matter whether it was a new movie or an old movie or a repeat. I somehow had to be in a cinema hall between 11.30 AM and 2.30 PM. Sounds very adventurous, right? Yes it was, believe you me, but that was the craze of the movies, both Hindi and English.

“Raaz Ki Baat” (1970) is quite an obscure movie and hardly any details are known about this movie. Even its year of release is not known for sure. it is a 1962 movie if IMDB is to be believed whereas anothwr source puts the year of release to 1970. I have gone by the year of 1970.

Many poet-saints were born across India between the 14th to 16th centuries. I recallthe names of a few of them mainly because films were made on their lives. They were Guru Nanak, Sant Kabeer, Sant Gyaneshwar, Sant Tukaram, Narsinh Mehta, Chandidas, Purandara Dasa, Kanaka Dasa, Arunagirinathar, Appiah Dikshitar etc. These saints wrote poems in praise of Gods. Some of them even composed music for their poems. In eastern India, there was a poet-saint Vidyapati Thakur (also known as Maithili Kavi Kokil or simply Vidyapati) who was born in the 15th century in Madhubani, Bihar. He wrote poems in Maithili dialect in praise of Lord Shiva but also wrote love lore on Radha-Krishna in keeping with the popularity of Lord Krishna in this region. Over a period of time, his poems and love lore spread across whole of eastern India. His influence over Bengal was so much that at one point of time, many including me thought that he was a poet-saint belonging to Bengal.

The 1965 film ‘Johar Mehmood in Goa’ is a veritable treasure house of wonderful songs and music. A popular hit in its own time, this film still continues to be known for the songs. Of the total of eight songs, four song are already represented on this blog. This duet here now becomes the fifth song from this film to make it here.

I find that the movies that I did not like often ended up as big hits (viz. “Muqaddar Ka Sikandar”, “Suhaag” etc). On the other hands , the movies that I like a lot end up getting lukewarm response from the public (viz “The Great Gambler”, “The Burning Train”, “Deshpremi” etc).
