#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 17? # Himalay Se Oonchaa-1975 #
————————————————————

‘Himaalaya Se Oonchaa-1975’ was produced by Baboo Mehra and directed by B.S. Thapa for ‘Prakash Mehra Combine, Bombay’.

SNo Title of the Song Lyricist Singer/s Posted On the blog
01 Ho… ooparwaale ajab teri maaya Indeevar Manna Dey, chorus
02 O saathi re… pyaar jise kehte hai ik baar kiya jaata hai Indeevar Lata Mangeshkar Being discussed today
03 Raahi o raahi …tere sar pe duaaon ke saaye rahe Indeevar Lata Mangeshkar, chorus 01.06.2013
04 Thhithum… arey kahaan gayaa kidhar gayaa Anjaan Kanchan, Baby Shivangi

I vaguely remember to have watched this movie in my childhood with either my brothers & cousins, or my uncles. I had a big nostalgia of the song ‘raahi o raahi’ from this movie, and when I became a member of this blog, I had shared this song then in 2013. The video of this song was not available then. However, in the recent years the songs of this movie and the movie itself has been made available on internet by enthusiastic music and film lovers. I had in my memory a scene from this movie and that is about some snowy mountains and Sunil Dutt carrying his brothers on his shoulders. I have to watch this movie again to clear my doubt (of some ‘miracle’ happening in the movie?), I am leaving that to be discussed in a separate post in the future.

Today 27th February’2022 is the twenty-fifth ‘Remembrance anniversary’ (1 January 1924 – 27 February 1997) of ‘Shyamlal Babu Rai’ who is popularly know to us as ‘lyricist Indeevar’. As a tribute to him I am presenting a song from ‘Himaalay Se Oonchaa-1975’, which will be the second song from this movie to be posted on the blog after 01.06.2013 (when the first song was posted). Though lyrics of the today’s song were also noted around the same time in 2013 it somehow remains to be posted on the blog.

Today’s song is in the voice of Lata Mangeshkar and it is lip synced by Mallika Sarabhai. Sunil Dutt is also seen in the picturization of this song.

Music for this movie is composed by Kalyanji-Anandji. And as mentioned above lyrics for today’s song is written by Indeevar.

Let us now listen to today’s song …

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 154 # (Actress Reena Roy’s birth anniversary)
——————————————

Today 7th January’2022 is the 65th birthday of actress Reena Roy (born on 07th January’1957).

In my growing years,(the seventies) and further in eighties she was one of the leading actresses in Bollywood.

I got to watch many of her movies in my growing years and later when I was a grown-up boy.

I have earlier written an article on her birthday on the blog. I am not going to repeat the same again. I liked her performance in all the movies which I have watched of her so far. I love to watch her movies whenever I get a chance or whenever they are played on TV channels.

The discussion on the movies of the ‘decade of seventies’ is incomplete without the mention of this actress and her films. We are not going to discuss the list of her movies in this article. She had been a part of many prominent movies of the ‘seventies’ and ‘early eighties.’ And today’s movie is one of her prominent movies from the end-seventies.

Today’s movie is ‘Jaani Dushman-1979’.

“Jaani Dushman-1979’ was directed by Raj Kumar Kohli for his home productions ‘Shankar Movies, Bombay’.

Raj Kumar Kohli was also the producer of this movie.

The movie had a long list of star cast like 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 and a long list of other artists.

Vinod Mehra, Vikram, Prem Nath, Rekha, Neetu Singh, Bindiya Goswami, Sarika make special appearance in this movie.

Yogeeta Bali and Aruna Irani make a guest appearance in this movie.

And actor Jeetendra make a ‘above-all – special appearance’ in this movie.

Screenplay of this movie was written by Charandas Shokh, and Jaggi Ram Pal. Story Idea of this movie was by Hakim Lata.

Dialogues in this movie were written by Inder Raj Anand. Editing of this movie was done by Shyam and he was assisted by Kishan and Kalyan.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 06.04.1979 under ‘A’ certificate.

This movie had six songs written by Verma Malik and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Lata Mangeshkar, Kishore Kumar, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, Anuradha, and Shatrughan Sinha had given their voices to the songs of this movie.

Following is the list of songs of this movie.

SNo. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Chalo re doli uthhaao kahaar Mohd Rafi 31.07.2019
02 O meri jaan bol meri jaan Kishore Kumar, Anuradha 28.11.2015
03 Tere haathon mein pahna ke choodiyaan Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle, chorus 28.12.2008
04 Saare rishtey naate tod ke aa gayi Lata Mangeshkar Being discussed today
05 Sun bhai saadho, bol re maadho Kishore Kumar, Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, chorus 24.07.2018
06 Aisi waisi naa samajh sajanaa Asha Bhonsle, Shatrughan Sinha

We can see from the above table that four songs of this movie have already been posted on the blog earlier. This movie started its journey on the blog in the initial period of the blog viz in 2008- the first year of the blog.

However, the second song from this movie had to wait for almost seven years and it was posted on 28.11.2015. This movie again got overlooked and its third and fourth songs were posted on the blog on 24.07.2018 & 31.07.2019 respectively. Its after another ‘more than two-years’ gap that the fifth song from this movie is being discussed on the blog.

I wish to see this movie in the ‘Yippeeee-land’ and that is the reason I selected a song from this movie. Earlier I was looking for a new movie to be introduced on the blog and had almost finalized a song from it. But now let us help 😊 ‘Jaani-Dushman’ to a step closer to ‘Yippeeee-land’.

Today’s song is the sole Lata Mangeshkar song in this movie. This is also a solo song.
On screen it is Reena Roy lip-syncing the song and we can see Sunil Dutt in the picturisation of this song with Reena Roy.

Wishing Reena Roy, a ‘very happy birthday’ and a ‘healthy’ and ‘peaceful’ life ahead, let us now listen to the today’s song.

The available video of this song is a partial one and the audio version is having full song.

Over to the song now …

Hullo Atuldom

“Mehrban” (1967) as spelt in the titles of the movie was an AVM (Madras) production written and directed by A. Bhimsingh. It’s cast was headed by Ashok Kumar, Nutan, Sunil Dutt and had Ramesh Deo, Shyama, Ashim kumar, Jayanthi, Shashikala, Bharathi, Mehmood, Soodesh Kumar and Sulochana Latkar. The dialogues and lyrics were written by Rajinder Kishan and Ravi was the music director. The movie had seven songs of which the blog has the following two.

Song Date of posting
Ae mere dost ae mere hamdam 21 January 2013
Mera gadha gadhon ka leader 9 December 2016

As we can see this movie last made its appearance in 2016 with a wonderful post by Rajaji who was pushed to write by Avinashji. Infact, for the both songs posted, Avinashji was the lyrics contributor.

The 2013 post had a brief synopsis of the movie. It equated the movie to the 1990 David Dhawan directed Rajesh Khanna- Govinda starrer “Swarg”. I happened to see “Mehrbaan” recently and realised that the similarity is limited. Yes, Rajesh Khanna played the rich-man in “Swarg” similar to Ashok Kumar’s character in “Mehrban”. Govinda played the orphan who is devoted to the family similar to Sunil Dutt’s character in “Mehrban”.

The variations in the 1967 movie is that the wealthy couple Shanti Swarup (Ashok Kumar) and Parvati (Sulochana) have three sons and two daughters in addition to being the adoptive parents of Kanhaiya (Sunil Dutt). (In “Swarg” the wealthy couple are childess) They also bring in Laxmi (Nutan) whose parents were known to them and who die leaving Laxmi to fend for herself. So, as we can see it is a full house. That gives the story all kinds of good, bad and ugly characters which helps the writer to gives us a three-hour long movie with lots of ‘rona-dhona’ ‘kasam khana and khilana’ etc. i.e. a highly emotional movie. The end is predictable in that all the family members come together and live happily, once again.

Just remembered another variation between “Swarg” and “Mehrban”. In “Swarg” Krishna (Govinda) becomes rich by acting in movies, buys back the property of his ‘sahabji’ (Rajesh Khanna) and teaches the errant brothers a lesson or two before bringing them back to apologise for all the wrongs that they have done. Kanhaiya of ‘Mehrban’ doesn’t wait to earn riches before coming back to set matters right in the adoptive family. Kanhaiya (Sunil Dutt) has Laxmi (whom he marries before being sent away from the home by Sulochana) for support whereas Krishna does it with the help of his friend ‘Airport’ (Satish Kaushik).
Also, in ‘Swarg’ Sahabji’s wife dies of shock and in ‘Mehrban’ Shanti Swarup dies leaving his wife to the mercy of his ungrateful children.

‘Swarg’ was said to be a remake of ‘Mehrban’ which itself was a remake from the 1960 Tamil hit ‘Padikkadha Medhai’ (Uneducated Genius) which in turn was a remake of the 1953 Bengali movie ‘Jog Biyog’ which was based on the novel of the same name by Ashapurna Devi. So, that means this story will hold good in any time and age.

We are revisiting this movie today with a duet sung by Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi but (surprise) it is not a romantic song. In fact, the movie doesn’t have any romantic song, in the true sense of the term. There is a Lata Mangeshkar solo which has Nutan pacifying a sad Sunil Dutt. This song relates the story of Shanti Swarup to his grandchildren.

This is one of five movies where Nutan and Sunil Dutt played the lead. As I was looking up the anniversaries tab of the blog I found that the birth-dates of the two were one day apart. I wondered what scenario it would have been, back then, when the shooting of the movies were on. Nutan would have turned 85 on 4th June and Sunil (birth-name Balraj) Dutt would have been 92. Just a passing thought, their sons are actors too and have acted together in a few movies.

Editor’s note-Lyrics of this song, which turns out to be a multiple version song, were sent by Avinash Scrapwala long ago.

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 :

4407 Post No. : 15795

Today (11 August 2020) happens to be Janmashtmi, the day Lord Krishna, the avatar of Lord Vishnu was born in the Dwapar Yug. His earlier avatar was in the Treata Yug and that was as Lord Ram, and the birthday of Lord Ram is called Ramnavami.

Lord Ram was a serious, sombre, idealism personifieed avatar of Lord Vishnu whereas Lord Krishna was a playful, more human like avatar. Playful and non serious he may be, but he meant business when the situation so demanded. And do not fiorget, it is Lord Vishnu, who gave us Bhagwatgeeta ka gyaan.

It should come as no surprise to note that Lord Krishna has been a favourite God of Hindi movies and there have been a good number of Lord Krishn related songs in Hindi movies.

On every Janmashtmi, we feature at least one Lord Krishn related song. The first janmashtmi of the blog saw the occasion getting celebrated with the popular song Shyaam teri bansi pukaare Radha naam (Geet Gaata Chal). Next janmashtmi in 2009 saw an out and out iconic janmashtmi song viz Govinda aal re aalaa zara matki sambhaal brijbaala (Bluffmaster) getting discussed.

If one thinks that we have run out of Lord Krishn related songs for this janmashtmi, now that it is the 13th janmashtmi occasiobn for the blog, one cannot be more wrong.

Here is a fantastic Lord Krishn related song from “Khaandan”(1965). This song is sung by Rafi and chorus. The song begins with a stuti, which sounds like the voice of Ravi to me. Lyrics are by Rajinder Krishan. Music is composed by Ravi, a ceator of iconic songs (my description for him).

The song is picturised on Sunil Dutt, with lots of other devotees engaged in the song and dance celebration, including Nutan, and Omprakash. It is Omprakash, who starts the bhajan singing the Sanskrit stuti.

Incidentally, some places in India celebrate Janmashtmi tomorrrow (12 August 2020), but UP people should know better, because Lord Krishn was born in these parts. :). According to UP calendars, it falls today. May be it falls in night, seeing that Lord Krishna was born at night.

Lyrics of the song were sent to me by Avinash Scrapwala.

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2010-2020) – Song No. 44
———————————————————————————–

Ten years back on this day , viz on 28th July 2010, the blog saw as many as six songs being represented as given below;

Song Movie title-Year Remarks
Meri zindagi mein aate to kuchh aur baat hoti Kanyaadaan-1968 All songs covered
Tumhi mere mandir tumhi meri pooja tumhi devtaa ho Khaandaan-1965 Five songs posted

Out of the six movies represented on the blog on that day five movies viz. ‘Kanyaadaan-1968’, ‘Sehra-1963’, ‘Nau Do Gyaarah-1957’, ‘Mr and Mrs 55-1955’, and ‘Taxi Driver-1954’ all their songs have already been covered and they have already landed in ‘Yipeeeee’ land. 😊

That leaves us only one movie i.e. ‘Khaandaan-1965’ which is still eligible to be considered for the ‘blog ten-year challenge’.

Though I am regularly browsing the blog, I failed to notice that three songs of this movie ‘Khaandaan-1965’ were yet to be covered. This discovery came as a big surprise for me. I had a ‘bigger’ ‘surprise’ waiting for me, But they will be discussed some other time. For the time being, we will come directly to the today’s song and post.

‘Khaandaan-1965’ or ‘Khandan-1965’ was directed by A. Bhim Singh for ‘Vasu Films, Madras’. S. Ramanathan was the associate director of this movie and A. Hussain was his assistant. This movie was produced by Vasu Menon. It had Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Pran, Soodesh Kumar, Manmohan Krishna, Mohan Choti and Om Prakash, supported by Ravikant, Arundev, Mumtaz, Sulochana Chatterjee and Lalita Pawar.

Story of this movie was written by M.S. Solaimalai and dialogues were written by Rajinder Krishan who also wrote the lyrics for the songs in this movie.

A. Bhim Singh who was the director of the movie wrote the screenplay of this movie and he was also the editing supervisor of this movie. A. Pauldoraisingam was the editor of this movie.
N.S. Bedi was the Dialogue Instructor for this movie.

This movie had eight songs written by Rajinder Krishan and music was composed by Ravi. Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Usha Mangeshkar, Manna Dey and Mohd Rafi had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

So far, the following five songs from “Khaandaan-1965” have been posted on the blog;

Song Posted On
Tumhi mere mandir tumhi meri pooja tumhi devtaa ho 28.07.2010
Kal chaman thaa aaj ek sehraa huaa 30.07.2011

Tu hoke badaa ban jaanaa apni maataa ka rakhwaalaa 09.03.2012
Aa dance karein 31.07.2014

Today’s song is the sixth song from this movie being presented on the blog. This enjoyable ‘teasing’ song is sung by Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhonsle and picturised on Sunil Dutt and Nutan in a ‘village fair’ or ‘mela’ set up where many other artists can also be seen participating in the picturization of this song.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Hullo Atuldom

This is an attempt to remember two legends of Bollywood with one post.

On reviewing the “anniversaries page” of the blog I found an opportunity to introduce the qawwali song from a 1982 released (exact date being 27/05/1982 meaning the movie is 38 years old), Raj Kumar Kohli produced and directed, multi starrer “Badle Ki Aag” (Flames of Revenge).

The recent stay-at-home gave me the time to sit through this movie. It is a very typical, simple, regular story with a slight twist.

There is a family of father (Kadar Khan), mother (Nirupa Roy), two sons and a daughter. The father in his greed for wealth wipes out his partner’s family but the children of this family escape the mass-murder. Nirupa Roy gets separated from her sons in the course of walking out on her cruel greedy husband. She has her daughter with her. The sons grow up to be dacoits Shera (Dharmendra) and Lakhan (Sunil Dutt) and daughter (Sarika) an aspiring lawyer whose education is funded by Lakhan who has kept in touch with the mother and sister. Lakhan is a do-gooder daku where as Shera is ruthless.

Meanwhile the daughter (Reena Roy) of the affected family has been brought up in a kotha and nurses a desire to revenge her families misfortune. Her brother (Rajeev Anand who was seen in about 5 movies after which he turned producer) grows up to be a cop. There is one more important character in the whole setup- Inspector Amar Verma (Jeetendra) who is the son of Mohanlal Verma (Madan Puri) who is constantly tormented by Shera and Lakhan. Now here is the promised twist- at different times Geeta (Reena Roy) the dancer has had interaction with the three heroes and all of them have developed feelings for her. But she loves the Inspector who has seen her at different times with the other two and misunderstands her. Isn’t that a different kind of love-story. Here I should mention the existence of Bijli (Smita Patil) who loves Shera. Hope the readers have got confused about the very regular story that this movie had. The movie was a success at the Box-Office what with so many stars.

Today’s songs has the three heroes disguised as Qawwals at Janakidas’s son’s wedding. We have Smita Patil dancing around. Here I must admit that this post reminded me of this Qawwali sung by Kishore Kumar, Mahendra Kapoor and Suresh Wadkar. It had music by Laxmikant- Pyarelal and had lyrics by Verma Malik.

Small thoughts after seeing the song on repeat for writing this post- (1) Sunil Dutt and Jeetendra are jumping around and Dharmendra stays put on his mat. (2) Looks like this is the only time when Smita Patil has shared screen time with Jeetendra.

With this song we remember Sunil Dutt and Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar on their anniversaries.

Hullo To all in Atuldom

A very happy Janmashtami or Gokulashtami or Sri Krishna Jayanthi as it is called in the various parts of the country. It is celebrated with a lot of prasads, bhajans and jagrans (in some regions). Jagran means keeping awake. The thought behind this is that Lord Krishna was born in the dead of the night so the devotees keep vigil till that hour. As per mythology it was raining heavily at the time of the Lord’s birth and most of the country is having a good monsoon at this point.

The Srimad Bhagwat Puraan says- at birth the Lord was transported, hidden inside a basket by his father Vasudev, to the house of Nand in Gokul, across a swollen Yamuna. (As if in anticipation of the lord there is a flood alert along the banks of the river Yamuna this year.) The Lord grew up in the loving care of Nand and his wife Yashoda. His baal-leelas (playful pastimes as a child) are described in the 10th Canto of the Srimad Bhagwat Puraan. One of the acts described in great detail is ‘maakhan chori‘ – how the lord Loved to reach out to the pots of curds, milk and butter that used to be hung up in the kitchens of Gokul.

Today’s song shows the day 2 of the Janmashtami / Gokulashtami celebrations that is very common in western India. It is from the 1979 Rajkumar Kohli directed Sunil Dutt- Reena Roy- Bindiya Goswami- Shatrughan Sinha starrer ‘Muqaabla’. It has songs penned by Verma Malik with Laxmi-Pyare as the music directors.  Asha Bhonsle, Kishore Kumar, Anwar, Mahendra Kapoor and Mohd. Rafi are the playback singers used in the movie. The movie was a typical romantic, masaala movie where Sunil Dutt and Shatru play gang leaders. I vaguely remember having seen it, possibly on television, and by the time I discovered it half the movie was over.

But here is the gist as given on IMDB.com:

Sheru (Shatrughan Sinha) and Vicky (Sunil Dutt) are two gang leaders. After a series of complications and mishaps both realize that they will be better off being friends and helping the poor and needy. They also fall in love with two separate women, one of them is Lacho (Reena Roy). When these two turn good guys, the bad guy’s leader Banwanri (Ranjeet) gets angry and vengeful. Fortunately, our two heroes get support from a honest police inspector (Premnath). Then Sheru finds out that Lacho really loves Vicky and his son, this embittered them both against each other. And the two again resume their old rivalry and hatred for each other.

As I said earlier, Janmashtami celebrations continue on to the second day in many parts of India. There are street corner scenes where in pots of goodies along with dahi are tied high up. Groups of youngsters make an attempt at breaking the pots, by making human pyramids and emulating Krishna’s habit of breaking pots which were tied up in the kitchens of yore.

In my younger days (there, I let the cat out of the bag, that I am not so young now though I like to think that I am still a bachcha 🙂 ) we used to have dahi-handi in our apartment complex between the two wings of flats. They used to be tied at a height of 1st floor. We needed a pyramid of three tiers to reach the handi. It was a very simple joyful day. Then as time went by, as in other spheres of life, commercialization set in the dahi-handi festival began to be conducted with prize money attached to the ropes of dahi-handi. This has further grown to the extent that there is this chowk (crossroad intersection) in Thane where the competition is held and the whole road is out of bounds for traffic for the day. And groups of youth practice for months on end to make pyramids which have seven or eight layers. There are numerous cases of people falling and breaking their limbs.  Lately there are also all girl groups in the contest. It is telecast live on all Marathi TV channels and makes for good viewing.

Dahi-handi was made popular in Hindi cinema by Shammi Kapoor in ‘Bluffmaster’ (1965) – the original “Govinda Aala Re, Aala, Zara Matki Sambhaal Brijbaala“.  Various heroes have copied him in subsequent years. In today’s song, we have Shatrughan Sinha and Sunil Dutt have a go at the handi along with Manmohan (in red shirt) and others who are not clear in this video. (A few years back Sonakshi Sinha also had a Govinda song to her name). The song is written by Verma Malik and Laxmikant Pyarelal are the music directors. Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar are the playback singers.  I couldn’t stop my smile when I saw Sunil Dutt dancing. Don’t know who the dance master was who gave him steps that were uncharacteristic of Duttsaab. Then Dr. Shreeram Lagoo enters the scene as the advisor of peace and I was desperately trying to recognize the actor in the light brown shirt with a head band who was trying to raise bets on who will break the handi. The finale of the song is the whole pyramid collapsing when this actor pokes a pin into the feet of one of the govindas (that is what the boys in the pyramid are called)

Govinda Aala Re!!!!

apni sena ko lekar aala re aala

govinda aala re aala
govinda aala re aala
is matki ko hum lootenge
govinda aala re aala
dekhna phir kayi sar phootenge
govinda aala re aala
hai muqaabla hum cha tum cha
koi na aaye beech mein chamcha
dekhta hoon mai tera hausla
kar doonga main abhi faisla
teen batti to jalti rahegi
lal patti bhi to chamakti rahegi
teen batti to jalti rahegi
lal patti bhi toh chamakti rahegi

[dialogues]

Hullo to all Atulwaale

‘Daaku Aur Jawaan’ was a 1978 release. It was directed by Sunil Dutt and starred Reena Roy, Leena Chandavarkar, Bindu, Sunil Dutt, Vinod Khanna, Ranjeet, Om Prakash, Anwar Hussain, Kanhaiyalal, Asrani, Padma Khanna, Tun Tun, Sundar etc. Its music composers were Laxmikant  Pyarelal and Anand Bakshi was the lyricist.

This is the story of the movie as given on Wikipedia-

Birju (Sunil Dutt) and Ramu (Vinod Khanna) are brothers and have a friendly bond with each other, They do a lot of pranks with the villagers, but the pressure of the landlord {Anwar Hussain) and the urban bad guy Bhairon Singh (Ranjeet) leads villagers to pay a fee for their lands to work on them. This leads Ramu to join the army as a Jawaan (Soldier). Bhairon Singh, with the help of Thakurain (Bindu) plans to frame Birju as a criminal on the night of Janamashtmi. Bhairon Singh brutally rapes Ganga (Reena Roy) and steals the entire wealth from the safe of her father. After getting raped by Bhairon Singh, Ganga commits suicide by jumping into the well. Bhairon Singh frames Birju for the rape and murder of Ganga and stealing the money. Birju is arrested by the police, but escapes and takes a pledge on Ganga’s funeral pyre that he will take revenge of her death and he turns into a Daaku (Dacoit). Ramu, in the war, is fighting against enemies, but gets back to his village after losing one leg. After a lot of turns and twists, Seeta (Leena Chandavarkar) finally reveals the truth that Bhairon Singh had raped Ganga and he has stolen all the wealth from her house with the help of Thakurain. When Birju comes to know about it, he beats Bhairon Singh in front of all the villagers and finally kills him by throwing him into the well where Ganga committed suicide. Now, Thakurain tries to kill Ramu, but Birju takes the bullet in his chest saving Ramu in the process. Thakurain is arrested by the police. Birju, finally breathing his last, requests Ramu to read the letter which was written by him. After listening to the letter from Ramu, Birju dies reuniting with Ganga in Heaven. In the end, Ramu marries Seeta and they lived happily ever after.

So that then seems to be a very normal Hindi film story where any reason is good enough for the hero to turn a ‘daaku‘. And I must say Sunil Dutt would have made an imposing daaku remembering him from all the daaku roles he had played starting from ‘Mother India’ (1957), – his first role as a daaku. Incidentally, in that films also, his role name is Birju. And to have Vinod Khanna play his brother would have been “a sight to soothe sore eyes”. Another of his earlier films in which he plays the role of daaku is ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’ in 1963.

Today on the death anniversaries of Laxmikant Shantaram Kudalkar (its 21 years today since his passing away) and Sunil Dutt (14 years today) let us have a song from this 1978 movie which will give us an idea of their talents at the height of their careers.

Also, with this post, the film ‘Daaku Aur Jawaan’ makes its debut on our blog.

Song – Rakh Di Hai Beech Sadak Maine Gagariya  (Daaku Aur Jawaan) (1978) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics – Anand Bakshi, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Lyrics

ho rakh di hai. . .

ho rakh di hai beech sadak maine gagariya
tod sakey to tod saanwariya
rakh di hai
haan haan rakh di hai
beech sadak maine gagariya
tod sakey to tod saanwariya
rok li hai
haan haan rok li hai
dekh maine teri dagariya
daud sakey to daud gujariya
rok li hai dekh maine teri dagariya
daud sakey to daud gujariya
rakh di hai
han haan rok li hai

naina jhuka ke jara baat kar
nakhra na aurat jaat kar
naina jhuka ke jara baat kar
nakhra na aurat jaat kar
naajuk kalaai toot jaayegi
toot jaayegi
na jor mardon ke saath kar
na jor mardon ke saath kar
chheen li hai
haan haan
chheen li hai maine teri dhaani chunariya
odh sakey to odh gujariya
rakh di hai beech sadak maine gagariya
tod sakey to tod saanwariya
rakh di hai

do bol kya boley pyqar mein
oye oye oye oye oye
akad gaya tu to bazaar mein
o muaa
do bol kya boley pyqar mein
hey..y..y
akad gaya tu to bazaar mein
o koi teri bandhi main nahin hoon
rahiyo na is aitbaar mein
rahiyo na is aitbaar mein
tod di hai
haan haan
tod di hai maine teri prem rasariya
jod sakey to jod saanwariya
rok li hai dekh maine teri dagariya
daud sakey to daud gujariya
rok li hai
haan

pakdoon kamar se uchhaal doon
dum kham tere sab nikaal doon
pakdoon kamar se uchhaal doon
dum kham tere sab nikaal doon
ho jiya chaahe le jaaun uthaaye ke
ho tujhe nadiya ke paani mein daal doon
nadiya ke paani mein daal doon
thaam liya
haaye re thaam liya maine tujhe
ban ke baawariya
chhod sakey to chhod
saanwariya
rakh di hai
beech sadak maine gagariya
tod sakey to tod
saanwariya
rok li hai
dekh maine teri dagariya
daud sakey to daud
gujariya
rakh di hai
haan haan rok li hai

हो रख दी है॰ ॰ ॰

हो रख दी है बीच सड़क मैंने गगरिया
तोड़ सके तो तोड़ साँवरिया
रख दी है
हाँ हाँ रख दी है
बीच सड़क मैंने गगरिया
तोड़ सके तो तोड़ साँवरिया
रोक ली है
हाँ हाँ रोक ली है
देख मैंने तेरी डगरीया
दौड़ सके तो दौड़ गुजरिया
रोक ली है देख मैंने तेरी डगरीया
दौड़ सके तो दौड़ गुजरिया
रख दी है
हाँ हाँ रोक ली है

नैना झुका के जरा बात कर
नखरा ना औरत जात कर
नैना झुका के जरा बात कर
नखरा ना औरत जात कर
नाजुक कलाई टूट जाएगी
टूट जाएगी
ना ज़ोर मर्दों के साथ कर
ना ज़ोर मर्दों के साथ कर
छीन ली है
हाँ हाँ
छीन ली है मैंने तेरी धानी चुनरिया
ओढ़ सके तो ओढ़ गुजरिया
रख दी है बीच सड़क मैंने गगरिया
तोड़ सके तो तोड़ साँवरिया
रख दी है

दो बोल क्या बोले प्यार में
ओय ओय ओय ओय ओय ओय
अकड़ गया तू तो बाज़ार में
ओ मुआ
दो बोल क्या बोले प्यार में
हे॰॰ए॰॰ए
अकड़ गया तू तो बाज़ार में
ओ कोई तेरी बंधी मैं नहीं हूँ
रहियों ना इस एतबार में
रहियों ना इस एतबार में
तोड़ दी है
हाँ हाँ
तोड़ दी है मैंने तेरी प्रेम रसरिया
जोड़ सके तो जोड़ साँवरिया
रोक ली है देख मैंने तेरी डगरीया
दौड़ सके तो दौड़ गुजरिया
रोक ली है
हाँ

पकड़ूँ कमर से उछाल दूँ
दम खम मैं तेरे निकाल दूँ
पकड़ूँ कमर से उछाल दूँ
दम खम मैं तेरे निकाल दूँ
हो जिया चाहे ले जाऊँ उठाए के
हो तुझे नदिया के पानी में डाल दूँ
नदिया के पानी में डाल दूँ
थाम लिया
थाम लिया मैंने तुझे बन के बावरिया
छोड़ सके तो छोड़
साँवरिया
रोक ली है देख मैंने तेरी डगरीया
दौड़ सके तो दौड़
गुजरिया
रख दी है
हाँ हाँ रोक ली है’
