Hullo Atuldom

13th July is the birthdate of writer, producer, director Prakash Mehra. He would have been 83. He began his career in the late 1950s as assistant director and production controller etc. before turning director with “Haseena Maan Jayegi” in 1968 which had Babita and Shashi Kapoor in the lead. More films followed many of which were successful and super-successful, as the film industry would say “Silver Jubilees”.

One such movie was “Zanjeer” which helped Amitabh Bachchan get his foot into Bollywood. “Zanjeer” was, possibly, the first film, that brought Pran and Amitabh Bachchan together. It is said that on the heals of a successful “Samadhi” Mehra wanted to make his next with Dharmendra in the lead. But Dharmendra had to opt out due to date constraints. After knocking at the doors of all the big stars of that era Mehra went to see “Bombay To Goa” as per Pran sahab’s (as Mehra and the industry addressed Pran) suggestion; there are some who say it was Salim-Javed who made the suggestion. But whoever the trigger, ‘Talent met Talent’ (as per what Prakash Mehra used to say) – “Zanjeer” happened and an actor’s fate was sealed forever. The duo of Mehra- Bachchan went on to associate in six more ventures the last of which was “Jaadugar”in 1989.

In the remaining 16 movies that Mehra is credited as director (he is credited as director in 22 films) Dharmendra, Raaj Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Feroz Khan, Sanjay Khan, Vinod Khanna, Randhir Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Shatrughan Sinha, Navin Nischol, Vinod Mehra & Raaj Kumar’s son Puru were the male leads and Babita, Jaya Bhadhuri, Rekha, Hema Malini, Reena Roy, Saira Banu, Rakhee, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Tina Munim, Madhuri Dixit, Shabana Azmi were the female leads. That list only has those starring in movies directed by Prakash Mehra and not those that he wrote, presented or produced; if all those were included the list would have been longer.

Today’s song has Tina Munim playing Pran’s daughter (I am guessing from the lyrics of the song) who is out to shame her father for ‘his stand’ as regards her marriage. This is one kind of ‘father-character’ that Pran excelled in; as we can remember him from “Bobby” “Sharabhi” “Khuda Kasam” etc. We can see Akbar Khan (real life brother of Sanjay and Feroz Khan) as one of the party guests. The other party attendees include Birbal, Dinesh Hingoo, Vikas Anand, Brahmachari, and a bunch of chorus dancers.

This Asha Bhonsle song is written by Lalji Pandey who called himself Anjaan in Hindi Films. Bappi Lahiri was the music director of this song which is from the 1987 release “Muqaddar Ka Faisla”. Kadar Khan was the dialogue writer for the movie which had Raaj Kumar, Rakhee, Raj Babbar, Meenakshi Sheshadri, Akbar Khan, Tina Munim, Ranjeet, Bindu, Om Prakash, Satyen Kapoo, Ram Sethi (most of them regulars in any Prakash Mehra film) and Pran. I haven’t seen the film but enroute to writing this post I saw some of the movie’s songs; it looks like a typical masala film.

Remembering Prakash Mehra today on his birth anniversary and Pran Sahab on his death anniversary (which was on 12th).

As I was writing this post, I also found that Akbar Khan turned 72 last week on 7th. Wishing Akbar Khan (belatedly) for his birthday with good health and good times.

Hullo Atuldom

The song in this post is the perfect candidate for the “how come this song was not posted earlier” category. It being the most popular song of the film. There have been three songs posted on the blog, out of eight (I think) that this movie has, and this song is mentioned in at least two of these posts.

Avinash ji, in his post of the song “Jeene Ko To Jeete Hain Sabhi“, wondered how today’s song missed a place in that year’s Top 30 of the famous Binaca Geetmala.

Nahm ji has given the complete story of this movie in her post of the song “Mil Gayeen Aaj Do Lehren“. She has also pointed towards the connection between the song in that post with today’s song.

The movie had made it’s debut on the blog with the song “Maine Tujhe Kabhi Kuchh Kaha Tha“.

I am talking of ‘Ye Vaada Raha’ (1982) which was directed by Kapil Kapoor for Rose Movies, Bombay. It was produced by Ramesh Behl. It had Rishi Kapoor, Tina Munim, Poonam Dhillon, Sarika, Rakhi, Rakesh Bedi, Iftekhar, Agha, Sundar, Gulshan Bawra, Hari Shivdasani, and others. Shammi Kapoor made a special appearance in this movie. The film has six (but I think I have counted eight songs because one is a multi-version song) songs penned by Gulshan Bawra and composed to music by Rahul Dev Burman.

Revisiting ‘Ye Vaadaa Rahaa’ today on the occasion of Gulshan Bawra’s birth anniversary. He would have been 85 today. He was associated with many popular songs in his career – songs which were tuned by Kalyanji Anandji, Laxmikant Pyarelal, RD Burman and other music composers of the 70s, 80s and 90s. The last movie for which he penned songs was the Akshay Kumar- Twinkle Khanna starrer ‘Zulmi’ which released in 1999. It had music by Dilip Sen-Sameer Sen; he had also appeared on the screen in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Kishore Kumar and Asha Bhonsle with Rishi performing a waltz with an imaginary partner and then Poonam joins him. The video that I found on YouTube has all the versions stitched together. So, the second part of the song begins 3 minutes into the video where Tina Munim is reminiscing her days with Rishi Kapoor. I am unable to find videos where the three versions are separate.

Hullo Atuldom

‘Adhikaar’ meaning ‘Rights’ is a title that has been used four times by Bollywood. This information I gathered from the blog’s ‘List of songs- Moviewise’ tab. Of the four films titled ‘Adhikaar’ the ones released in 1938, 1954, and 1971 have already made their debut on the blog; in fact the ones released in 1954 and 1971 have been Yippeee’d too. The 1938 ‘Adhikaar’ has four out of seven songs on the blog. Today’s post sees ‘Adhikar’ (1986) make is debut on the blog. The song with this post is the one that plays as the movie’s titles play on-screen and we can see this ‘Adhikar’ is an ‘a’ short.

“Adhikar” (1986) was a movie that I recall having seen in a cinema theater. It had the standard, run-of-the-mill story, popular in that period.

A rich girl loves and marries a not so rich man. Her parents initially agree to the wedding but cracks begin to appear in the marriage when the girls’ parents start interfering in the couple’s daily life.

This is the two-line synopsis of movies like ‘Pyar Jhukta Nahi’ (1985), ‘Pyar Ke Kaabil’ (1987) etc.

The common element between ‘Pyar Jhukta Nahin’ (PJN), ‘Pyar Ke Kaabil’ (PKK) and ‘Adhikar’ is Bindu- she played the heroine’s interfering mother in all the three films. PJN had Padmini Kolhapure play a simple girl born to rich parents, and PKK had her (Padmini) play a lady working in her mother’s business venture. ‘Adhikar’ was slightly hat ke in the sense that Tina Munim played a simple girl born to an ambitious mother who wants her to be a singer and become rich & famous. So that should give a brief idea about what the movie was about.

‘Adhikar’ had Tina Munim and Rajesh Khanna play the parents to a sweet boy credited as Master Lucky on some sites (even in the titles of the film) and Baby Bulbul on others. Zarina Wahab, Bindu, Danny, Raza Murad, Murad, Sulochana, Yunus Parvez etc. form the supporting cast. Tanuja is there in a special appearance. Bappi Lahiri is the music director and Indeevar is the lyricist. Lata Mangeshkar, Chandrani Mukherjee, Anupama Deshpande, Uttara Kelkar, Kavita Krishnamoorthy and Kishore Kumar are the playback singers used in the movie. The movie is directed by Vijay Sadanah and produced by Jawaharlal Bafna and Vasant Doshi. It is the last movie that Rajesh Khanna and Tina Munim came together for and then the hit pairing came to an end.

The song with this post plays at the start, establishing Rajesh Khanna’s (Vishal’s) single parent status. The song shows Lucky developing interests in horses etc. Oh, I forgot to add that Rajesh Khanna plays a retired jockey. The sad version, in Kavitha Krishnamurthy’s voice, occurs at the end, when the child sings it to try and revive an unconscious Vishal. Vishal has had an hemorrhage after winning his last race as a jockey, and the doctor has given little hope of his survival. But Vishal survives and the film has a happy ending with the misunderstandings between the couple clearing up.

This song showcases Rajesh Khanna at his emotional best. His charming smile, that reaches his eyes and the mustachioed look, at the start of the song is what I liked about Rajesh Khanna – remember the look he sported at the start of ‘Dushman’ (1971). He was the heart throb of a whole generation of movie goers in the early 70s and he had ardent followers who were loyal to him forever – whatsay Avinash ji, Raja ji, and others!!!! We were upset when Amitabh Bachchan dislodged him but there were people, like yours truly, who loved to see ‘Anand’, ‘Namak Haraam’ as much for Kaka as for Amitabh Bachchan. I loved AB Sr. in ‘Inquilaab’ as much as Kaka in ‘Aaj Ka MLA Ram Avatar”. I am sure there were fans who didn’t know who to choose as favorite. The careers ran parallel for some time. But then all these have been written a number of times and will be written forever till the 70s generation decides who they loved more —- that means forever I suppose.

Thinking of Kaka a.k.a Rajesh Khanna on his birth anniversary. He would have gone a year closer to 80.

Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –- – –

Today 18th July’2021 is the ninth ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of Rajesh Khanna (29 December 1942- 18 July 2012). He passed away on 18th July’2012 in Mumbai.

On this occasion we pay our tributes to him and remember him with a song from one of his movies.

In this episode of ‘Rajesh Khanna- The Phenomenon – 8’ we look at Rajesh Khanna movies of the year ‘1981’. In the year 1981 following six movies of Rajesh Khanna were released (including Naseeb* where he had a friendly appearance).

SNo Movie Title Director Passed by Censor Board on
01 Dard Ambarish Sangal 24.07.1981
02 Dhanwan Surendra Mohan 01.07.1981
03 Dil-E-Naadaan C.V. Sridhar 11.12.1981
04 Fifty-Fifty Shomu Mukherji 15.10.1981
05 Naseeb** Manmohan Desai 17.03.1981
06 Qudarat Chetan Anand 27.02.1981

In the previous post in this series ‘Rajesh Khanna – The Phenomenon – 6’ we had discussed how Rajesh Khanna switched on to different roles exploring and introspecting himself and challenging himself in his ‘second innings’. In ‘1981’ he further capitalizes on the success of his movies like ‘Amardeep-1979’,’Thodisi Bewafaai-1980’, and critically acclaimed movies like ‘Red Rose-1980’, ‘Phir Wohi Raat-1980’, and ‘Bandish-1980’.

In ‘1981’ he tasted more success with movies like ‘Dard’, ‘Dhanwan’, ‘Dil E Naadan’, ‘Qudrat’ and ‘Fifty-Fifty’ that had moderate to decent success at the box office and they received critical acclaim.

That all happened forty years ago !

If we go back even further by another ten years, that takes us to ‘1971’. 1971 is behind us by fifty years from now, viz half a century !

That was when Rajesh Khanna ‘era’ was at its zenith. Here is the list of Rajesh Khanna movies released in the year ‘1971’.

(Rajesh Khanna movies – 1971)

09 Mehboob Ki Mehandi H.S. Rawail 30.01.1971

(*guest appearance, ** friendly/special appearance)

We notice that all the above movies had great music as was the norm for Kaka movies.

Coming back to today’s song it is from the movie ‘1981’ movie ‘Fifty-Fifty’.

From the movies of Rajesh Khanna released in 1981 the movies ‘Dard’, ‘Dhanwaan’, ‘Dil E Naadaan’, and ‘Qudrat’ have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’ on the blog. So, we only have this movie ‘Fifty-Fifty’ left to pick a Rajesh Khanna song from.

Tina Munim was the heroine of Rajesh Khanna in this movie, which was their first movie together. It laid the foundation for their further professional and personal chemistry on-screen and off-screen. That way this movie has a special place in the film career of Rajesh Khanna. That is the reason why I have selected a song from this movie for today’s presentation.

‘Fifty-Fifty’ was directed by Shomu Mukherji who also the producer of this movie.

This movie’s star-cast included Rajesh Khanna, Tina Munim, Kader Khan, Ranjeet, Om Shivpuri, Nazir Hussain, Indrani Mukherjee, Anita Guha, Poornima, P. Jairaj, Sundar Taneja, C.S. Dubey, Jankidas, Shaikh, V. Malhotra, Roopesh Kumar, Shashi Kiran, Anu Dhawan, Johny Whisky, Arvind, Miss Nikki, Kumar, Amid, Jagdeep, Mushtaq, Maruti, Bhagwan Dada, Kamrana, Amar Nath, Mangal Singh, Shyam, Vikram Sharma, Miss Neelu, Master Sakha, Baby Pinky, Teerath and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.10.1981.

“Fifty-Fifty” had seven songs including one three-part song. Lyrics for all the songs were written by Anand Bakshi. Music for this movie was composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

In today’s song Rajesh Khanna is lip-syncing in the voice of Amit Kumar while Tina Munim lip-syncs in the voice of Asha Bhonsle.

Some other artists too can be seen in the picturisation of this Marathi folk dance song.

Let us now enjoy today’s song where Kaka can be seen performing with trademark jigs. 😊

R. D. Burman – 27th Death Anniversary on 04.01.2021
———————————————————————-
Summer vacation (1981):

I have just now checked the release date of Rocky 1981 is 8th May, 1981. So someday after 8th May, that year I have seen this movie at Belgaum in a theatre, called ‘Roopali”. Most of our local cousins, and some of their cousins were all collected at my elder uncle(Mamu)’s place at Belgaum. So many people of different age group were there, so lunch was a hotch-potch hurried affair. There was a railway crossing involved between the house and the theatre. A cousin was sent ahead on bicycle to get the tickets from the counter, as a new movie’s first show was likely to get houseful. By the time we all reached the theatre in batches of two’s and three, walking all the way, the boy had gotten the tickets. Rest of it is a blur, I remember only snatches of films scenes, story is all forgotten. Songs were quite popular and all were good quality songs. They were heard over the years, so remembering them is no problem.

I have thought of posting a song from this film in the past too, but the song that readily came to mind is ‘Kya yahi pyar hai” which is already posted.

We are commemorating R. D. Burman’s 27th Death anniversary on 04.01.2021, so this song from Rocky is presented. Though I was not aware that this song is in ‘Rocky’ the song’s words, music, tune everything is there in memory. The lyrics I could write from the memory also, that is the magic of input given to the young mind.

R.D.Burman is the composer here and Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. The singers the Lata Mangeshkar and Kishore Kumar giving playback for Sanjay Dutt and Tina Munim. This was a movie made for launching of Sanjay Dutt, and was directed by Sunil Dutt, as per the credits at imdb. This was also the first movie of Shakti Kapoor. Editor remark:-Shakti Kapoor had made his debut in 1970s itself. “Darwaza”(1977) is a case in point.

Song Date of posting
Kya yahi pyaar hai (Rocky) 5 January 2015
Aa dekhen zara kis mein kitna hai dam (Rocky) 4 September 2015

The video links of this movie’s songs are not available of youtube. I could find only the audio links.

This is a nice hummable duet with good music orchestration.

Hullo Atuldom

Today is a special day for Kaka fans. It would have been his 78th birthday.

On this occasion here is a song which is from Kaka a.k.a Jatin Khanna popular among his fans as Rajesh Khanna’s productional debut. “Alag Alag” (1985). It was produced by Rajesh Khanna and Kusum Narula, under the banner of Aashirwaad Films International, Bombay.

A small anecdote is noted – that Kishore Kumar did not accept any payment for his singing assignments in this film. He said that he felt indebted to Rajesh Khanna and ‘Aradhana’ for catapulting his career to a new high, and this being Rajesh’s first film as a producer, he would sing for him without accepting any payments.

The star cast of this film is listed as Shashi Kapoor, Rajesh Khanna, Tina Munim, Deven Verma, Sushma Seth, Gita Siddhartha, Urmila Bhatt, Anjana, Raj Rani, Rajesh Puri, Subiraj, Asit Sen, Bharat Bhushan, Bhagwan, Satyen Kappu, Mohan Choti, Birbal, Vikas Anand, Manmauji, Manik Dutt, Sunil Dhawan, Gurbachhan, with special appearance by Bindu and friendly appearances by Om Prakash and Om Shivpuri. Music director was Kaka’s favorite RDB who was instrumental in securing Kak’s position as a superstar in the beginning of the ’70s. Anand Bakshi another of those responsible for the Kaka phenomenon was the lyricist. And finally the director was Shakti Samanta- the maker of ‘Aradhana’, ‘Kati Patang’ ‘Amar Prem’ etc. All-in-all the movie had everything that would have ensured a success at the box-office.

It seems that it was inspired from a Pakistani film “Meherbani” that released in 1982. It is remembered for its different story-line and its picturesque locales-Kashmir. I am sure our Nahmji has mentioned this in one of her recent posts about how she went location-spotting on her tour of Kashmir. One of the reviewers of this movie has mentioned that this was a movie where Tina Munim showed sparks of being a dedicated actress.

Sudhirji has given the story of the movie in this writeup. Sudhirji’s post mentions that the Geet Kosh has listed seven songs for this movie in addition to the song that he had unearthed.

Today we will be having the fifth song of ‘Alag Alag’ which is sung by Rajesh Khanna’s voice Kishore Kumar. It is reminiscent of all the melodious and melancholic songs of the period when Kaka was on his upward movement. It has his eyes doing all the speaking. Lata Mangeshkar sings for Tina Munim.

Wishing he was still with us.

Song-Tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin (Alag Alag)(1985) Singers-Lata, Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics(Provided by Avinash Scrapwala)

aaaaa aaaaa
aaaaa aaaaa
kaagaz kalam dawaat le ye kissa likhe koi

kaagaz kalam dawaat le ye kissa likhe koi
raanjha raanjha karte phir ik heer deewaani hoyi
jab se tujhko dekha aa aa aa
jab se tujhko dekha hai
main sabko bhool gayi hoon
auron ki kya baat karen
main rab ko bhool gayi hoon
tere naam ke siwa aa kuchh yaad nahin
tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin

kya shaadi kya doli kaise chaar gavaah kya kaazi
duniya se kya lena dena
dil raazi rab raazi

jogi ban ko jaaye ae ae ae
jogi ban ko jaaye
mujhko jaana tere dwaare
tere dwaare ko jaate
duniya ke raste saare
tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin
tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin
mujhe kya ho gaya kuchh yaad nahin
toone kya kar diya mujhe yaad nahin
tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin
tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin

laaj ke pehre toot gaye
na toota pyaar ka waada
jab jab shyaam ne bansi chhedi
tadap uthhi ye raadha
prem ke raste mein hai oonche ae ae
ho o
prem ke raste mein hain unchhe parvat saagar gehre
hum premi aankhon se andhe aur kaanon se behre
tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin
tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin

mujhe kya ho gaya kuchh yaad nahin
toone kya kar diya kuchh yaad nahin
tere naam ke siwa kuchh yaad nahin

“Aakhir Kyon”(1985) was produced and directed by J Omprakash. Now I realise why this movie title starts with the letter “A”. 🙂

The movie had Rajesh Khanna, Smita Patil, Rakesh Roshan, Tina Munim, Asrani, Sujit Kumar, Shubha Khote, Beena Bannerjee etc in it.

THe movie was a archtypical South Indian “social” movie. Peevesie’s mom, while discussing one earlier song from the movie had provided this summary of the story of the movie

That movie had a very topical theme of a wife (Smita Patil) being abandoned by her whimsical husband (Rakesh Roshan) for another girl (Tina Munim). The story goes on to show Smita becoming a TV anchor (she was one prior to coming into movies) and then graduating to a Novelist. Then it turns out that when her husband’s business falls in bad times he approaches her; requests her to write for him; so that he can get their daughter (whom had forcibly kept with himself at the time of separation) married decently. That is the gist of the movie. We also had a partly bald Rajesh Khanna playing a TV (DoorDarshan) cameraman who admires Smita for her rebounding power and is a support to her throughout.

This movie came at a time when DD was the only channel available and people used to have one TV in their drawing rooms. And whole families used to sit and watch whatever was dished out to them. Otherwise I cannot imagine an entire family sitting and watching this kind of a musical show on TV these days. Also those were the days when people used to quote Rani Jhansi in all their speeches. Also Indira Gandhi and Margaret Thatcher were sources of inspiration.

The movie had five songs in it. Four songs have been covered so far, with the movie making its debut in the blog in 2008, the first year for the blog !
Here are the details of the song covered in the blog :-

Blog post number Song Date posted
422 Dushman na kare dost ne wo kaam kiya hai 21 December 2008
5603 Saat rang mein khel rahi hai 8 March 2012
9544 Komal hai kamzor nahin tu 8 March 2014
15696 Ek andhera laakh sitaare 2 July 2020

We can see from the table that second and third song from the movie were discussed on 8th march (2012 and 2014) on the occasion of Women’s day. It shows that the movie had some sort of “Women’s empowerment” message in the movie.

Today (17 october 2020) happens to be the birthday anniversary of Smita Patil (17 October 1955- 13 December 1986). On this occasion, here is the fifth and final song from “Aakhir Kyon”(1985) to appear in the blog.

This song is sung by Lata. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The song is picturised as a get together song where Smita Patil lip syncs this semi classocal song while others, including Tina Munim, Rakesh Roshan and others look on. Tina Munim also uses this opportunity to fantasise about Rakesh Roshan.

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

With this song, all the five songs of “Aakhir Kyon”(1985) are covered in the blog and the movie joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog. This movie took nearly 12 years (3753 days to be precise) to get YIPPEED.

This song is the 3600th song of Lata Mangeshkar as a playback singer in the blog.

“Man Pasand” (1980 – censored on 26-6-1980 and released on 11-7-1980) was among the first few movies whose music cassette was purchased by my father along with “Yaarana” when they hit the market. And since then I am a huge fan of their songs. I Know almost all of them by heart.
This was a movie produced by Amit Khanna and directed by Basu Chatterji. Rajesh Roshan was the music director and Amit Khanna himself wrote the lyrics. The movie itself was inspired by the famous stage play by George Bernard Shaw – ‘Pygmalion’ (first published in 1913), and also on the hugely popular iconic film ‘My Fair Lady’ (1964 – Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn). The movie stars Dev Anand, Tina Munim, Girish Karnad, Simple Kapadia, Leela Mishra, Jalal Agha (appears as a guest in the song with this post), Piloo Wadia and Mehmood.

The movie has Dev Anand and Girish Karnad playing best friends, bachelors and musicologists. They encounter a loud and foul-mouthed vendor of ‘datun’ {neem branches} in the late-night local trains of Mumbai. Then and there, Dev (Pratap) throws a challenge that he can transform the unpolished girl into a graceful and talented singer and Karnad (Kashinath) picks up the bet and agrees to marry the girl if Pratap is successful.”

The above is from the last post that I wrote for this movie, in 2018 to celebrate Dev Anand’s 95th birthday.

We revisit the movie today. It has songs in the voice of another legend. When this movie was being made i.e. at the time of recording the songs of this movie, our Nightingale or Saraswathi- incarnate (as she is addressed by her ardent fans) must have been in her late 40s or just turned 50. She had been in the industry for nearly 37-38 years having stepped into the film world at the young age of 13, with the sole aim of supporting her family after the untimely death of her father. There was a time when she was rejected by Sashadhar Mukherjee for having a “thin-voice”. But it is that same “thin-voice” which was used in later years for songs that were filmed as early morning songs- “jaago mohan pyaare jaago” (Jaagte Raho); “jyoti kalash chalke” (Bhabhi Ki Choodiyan); “Satyam Shivam Sundaram” & “Bhor bhaye panghat pe” (Satyam Shivam Sundaram); and the bhajan which Saira Banu lip syncs in the morning hours in “Shaagird” – ‘Kanha kanha aan padi main tere dwar’. These are only a sample of what India’s Nightingale -Lata Mangeshkar – has given us over a career span of about 66-67 years. From the discography available on various websites it looks like she has stopped singing film songs sometime in 2010- that is why I have said that the career span is about 66/67 years. Of course, there was a time when she used to sing for actresses who were 50 years younger to her; then she switched to singing one or at the most two songs per movie after 2001 but has kept her date with recording songs by bringing out non-film albums and bhajans etc. I read somewhere that after a 14-year hiatus she recorded a song for some movie called “Dunno Y—Na Jaane Kyun” (2010).

She is a recipient of various awards including the Dadasaheb Phalke award in 1989, the Padma Bhushan (1969), Padma Vibhushan (1999) and finally the Bharat Ratna in 2001. She definitely is India’s Ratna (Gem), don’t know if we will have another like her ever!!!!

Coming back to the song for this post. This is the song by which Pratap (Dev Anand) introduces a fully trained & graceful Kamli (Tina) to upper class, high-society, party-going friends of his. He showcases her as an accomplishment of his scientific method of music coaching. The song which is composed by Rajesh Roshan as a semi classical number was picturised on a young Tina Munim and gives us a sample of what the ‘Koyal Kanthi’ Lata Mangeshkar is all about. Why I say sample is because this is a very short song. There are other songs where she has sung full classical and semi classical for close to ten minutes or even more. Here I remember another song where, in a Dev Anand movie, S D Burman has given Lata Didi (as the film industry addresses her) an 8½ minute song which has various ragas incorporated in it (any guesses which song I am referring to).

“Man Pasand” has had a rather slow journey on the blog. The movie has 8 songs of which the first one in Mohd. Rafi’s voice was posted in March of 2009. The previous song posted was in 2018 on the occasion of Dev Anand’s birth anniversary.

Here is the penultimate song the post for which began a day before Devsaab’s birth anniversary in 2019.

I can write a lot more about the song and the near-parallel careers of Devsaab and Latadidi in the film industry. But I choose to halt here.
Wishing our dear Lata Mangeshkar, a very Happy 91st birthday. Salute to her on her long innings in the industry.

Blog Day :

4400 Post No. : 15779

Less than a week ago, we were commemorating the death anniversary of Rafisaab on this blog. And here we are today to discuss another singing legend, this time on his birth anniversary. Of course, it’s none other than Kishore Kumar, another much-loved personality in the Hindi film industry.

As I said in my recent post on Rafisaab, I am a huge Rafisaab fan. But that doesn’t mean I’m not fond of Kishore Kumar.

I know some people have this “Rafi or Kishore” binary, but, thankfully for me, I don’t. I absolutely love both of them, and refuse to play one against the other. Why would one do that?

We’re extremely lucky to have had both singers in the industry. Why would we pick one, and exclude the other? Are our hearts so small? Is our love for music so narrow?

I, for one, thoroughly enjoy listening to both of them – and do listen a lot to both.

But today is Kishore da’s day, so the rest of this post is about him.

To call Kishore da a singing legend is absolutely true. But to call him only a singing legend doesn’t do justice to him at all.

Kishore da was an all-rounder par excellence – actor, director, producer, composer, writer, in addition to being a singing legend. So in a way, if I might very loosely use a cricketing analogy, he was Sir Garry Sobers to Rafisaab’s Bradman. 🙂 Bradman is considered the greatest batsman ever, whereas Sobers is considered the greatest all-rounder ever.

As with Rafisaab, I’ve written several posts here on Kishore da too. For me, he was an essential part of my pre-teen, and teen years, when he absolutely reigned. And from then, right till his death in 1987, he was the numero uno male singer in terms of popularity.

Much of my early musical experiences invariably had Kishore Kumar in them. It’s not like one had much of a choice in the 1970s – if you were listening to current songs, or watching current movies, you almost HAD to listen to Kishore songs. 🙂

I grew up in that atmosphere, and knew most Kishore songs of that era by heart. All three stanzas, if there were three.

Many of the hit movies at that time were Rajesh Khanna’s, but Kishore Kumar songs were big hits even in non-Rajesh films. Songs like “teri duniya se”, “dekha na haaye re”, “musafir hoon yaaron”, “ye jeevan hai”, “meri bheegi bheegi si”, “geet gaata hoon main” and many more. As I said, he just ruled at that time, so the actor in the film didn’t even matter.

Almost every one of my classmates in school was a Kishore fan, with the exception of one, who was a KL Saigal fan. In fact I first heard of KL Saigal only from him.

I too joined the bandwagon – and in the lunch break, we’d have a quick lunch and sing songs. Mostly Kishore, of course.

In those days, I had this habit of having ONE favourite song which I’d sing non-stop for a few days. It could be for 3-4 days, or a week or even 2 weeks. But I’d sing it non-stop, probably to the annoyance of others around me. 🙂

Again they were mostly Kishore songs.

I distinctly remember “jaane jaa, dhoondhta phir raha”, “chala jaata hoon”, “o mere dil ke chain”, “aadmi jo kehta hai” and “tere bina zindagi se koi”, though there were many more.

So now, when I have SO many fond musical memories of Kishore Kumar of those days, how can I POSSIBLY turn my back on him, just because I also became a Rafisaab fan later? Sorry, can’t do that.

At that time, I didn’t know too many Kishore songs from the 1950s. But as and when I got to listen to them, I’d just fall in love with them. How can you not fall in love with “piya piya piya”, or “o nigaahen mastaana”, or his songs of Funtoosh (1955) or Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi (1958)?

I feel, in the 1980s, he lost a little bit of that softness in his voice that he had in earlier decades. But some of that could also be to do with the type of songs he was called upon to sing. After all, even in that decade, he did sing songs like “lehron ki tarah yaadein”, “manzilein apni jagah” and “o yaara”.

And, if he hadn’t passed away in 1987, he could have easily continued to sing for many more years.
Even “o yaara” was from the 1987 film, Kaash.

But this is only one aspect of Kishore da.

He is also well-known as an actor, mostly in comedy lead roles of the 1950s and 1960s. I’ve seen many of those films – and I really like them.

The thing is, Kishore had no hang-ups, and could do the most crazy scenes on screen. Dances, songs, impersonations, anything.

I don’t know anyone else who was so versatile – the closest is possibly IS Johar or Mehmood.

But look at “kuen mein kood ke mar jaana” from Parivar (1956). That’s sheer Kishore genius.

And of course, “aake seedhi lagi” from Half-Ticket (1962) where he sings both in a male voice (for Pran) and female voice (for himself, disguised as a woman).

There are many more Kishore songs picturised on himself, that are pure fun – “main Bangali chhokra”, “CAT Cat”, “paanch rupaiya barah aana”, “meri pyaari bindu”, “is duniya mein pyaare, do kaam karna” , “guni jano bhakt jano” immediately come to mind.

Having said that, to assume that Kishore never took anything seriously wouldn’t be entirely true. Yes, most of his roles were comedy roles. And in real life too, his co-artistes often said he would enliven proceedings with his jokes and pranks. And yet, he could make meaningful cinema too.

Two films I like a lot are both produced and directed by Kishore Kumar. Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein (1964) and Door Ka Raahi (1971). Not only are the songs (composed by Kishore himself) excellent, but the storyline makes you think too. Especially Door Ka Raahi, which is unconventional in how it explores various facets of life, through the eyes of a traveler.

What more can I say about Kishore Kumar?

If the film industry is primarily about entertainment, Kishore Kumar was the ultimate entertainer. Even his live concerts were highly entertaining because he could connect very easily with his audience. No wonder he was loved so much.

There’s a lot more one can say about Kishore Kumar, but I will move on to the song for today.

This is from the film Harjaee (1981). In 2017, I posted a song on Kishore’s death anniversary from this film. Today I’m posting a song from this film on his birth anniversary.

I’m quite fond of both these songs, because they are vintage Kishore-Pancham (RD Burman) for me.

Kishore and Pancham had a long and extremely fruitful association. They were very close friends too, since Kishore, being very close to SD Burman, knew Pancham right from his childhood.

This is what I wrote about the film Harjaee (1981) on that post.

I remember seeing this film at that time – haven’t seen it since. Contrary to the typical multi-starrer, masala films of the time, this film, starring Randhir Kapoor and Tina Munim, was a proper tear-jerker. From what I remember, Randhir Kapoor is a carefree, prankster type of guy who pretends to have cancer, just to get Tina Munim to fall for him. His parents too believes his story and get Tina to be sympathetic towards him. Then tragedy strikes. Randhir Kapoor gets really diagnosed with cancer. The rest of the story is how he copes with it, how Tina copes with it, how their respective families cope with it.
The film has some good songs – like many Randhir Kapoor films do. Whether his films did well or not, there used to invariably be at least one hit song (often more) in each of his films. I remember during my schooldays, I personally didn’t mind Randhir Kapoor films at all – though I was clearly much in the minority at the time.

While watching this song “ye rut hai haseen” it struck me that this is yet ANOTHER song where the hero sings a song at a party, and makes the heroine cry or feel very uncomfortable. Off the top of my head, I remember songs in similar situations in Do Badan, Teesri Manzil, Ek Mahal Ho Sapnon Ka and Brahmachari . Maybe Atul should have a separate category for this. 🙂

Wish Kishore da a very happy birthday though he is not here with us anymore. He is probably up there singing to Pancham’s tunes, songs of Anand Bakshi’s lyrics, picturised on Rajesh Khanna. 🙂

And, for old times’ sake, singing to SD Burman’s tunes, songs of Majrooh, picturised on Dev Anand. 🙂

Kishore da, you will always remain in our hearts.

Thanks for all the entertainment, and for enriching our lives.

Song-Ye rut hai haseen dard bhi hai jawaan (Harjaayee)(1981) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Vitthalbhai Patel, MD-R D Burman

Lyrics

ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
harjaee nahin hum
na tum bewafaa

milna tha hum mil hi gaye
phool pyaar ke khil hi gaye
milna tha hum mil hi gaye
phool pyaar ke khil hi gaye
ho
dil se yehi doon main dua
milke na ho koi judaa
ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
harjaee nahin hum
na tum bewafaa

sapne the sapne hi rahe
apne jab apne na rahe
sapne the sapne hi rahe
apne jab apne na rahe
ho
roothe ho tum kaun suney
koi pyaar ka shikhwa gilaa
ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
harjaee nahin hum
na tum bewafaa

tan mann preet ke deep jaley
aaye seher na raat dhaley
tan mann preet ke deep jaley
aaye seher na raat dhaley
ho
socho zaraa
hogi bhalaa
phool se khusboo kaise judaa
ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
harjaee nahin hum
na tum bewafaa
ye rut hai haseen
dard bhi hai jawaan
