Blog Day :

5194 Post No. : 17175

Greetings and Happy Birthday wishes to Usha Khanna ji.

Born this day in 1941, she is all of 81 years old today. With a reign lasting from 1959 to 2003, she may be the most prolific and accomplished lady music director in the Hindi film industry. In the early decades of Hindi cinema, we have been earlier introduced to lady music directors viz., Bibbo, Jaddan Bai and Saraswati Rane. Then after a gap of maybe a decade, the teenaged Usha Khanna (she was 18 years when ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ was released in 1959) made her debut.

And the audience and the industry took notice of this new and attractive sound of music. After a slow beginning, she went on to become one of the mainline music directors in the industry. Over the period of about four and a half decade, she has composed music for more than 160 films. Her last film was released on 2003 – ‘Dil To Pardesi Hai’. We do not see more films from her after this, although technically she has not formally announced her retirement from an active career.

The song that I bring up today is from the 1964 film ‘Awaara Baadal’. This is a song performed on screen by Helen. And true to the spirit of this fabulous danseuse, the composition is so lilting and magical. On screen we see a dance being  performed by Helen and a group of supporting dancers. The performance is being viewed by Niranjan Sharma.

The lyrics of the song have been penned by Javed Anwar and the singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle.

A quick reminder for the readers, regarding the lyricist. Javed Anwar is a pseudonym for a team of two songwriters working together. Javed is the name that is used by Manohar Khanna, who is the father of Usha Khanna in real life. And Anwar is the pen name of the second songwriter – Raheel Gorakhpuri.

Wishing Usha ji for good health and many more such celebrations to come.

I invite you to listen to this foot tapping melody that is so apt for a Helen dance song.

Song – Dil To Niraala Hi Sharaabi Hai (Awaara Baadal) (1964) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – Javed Anwar, MD – Usha Khanna

Today (5 July 2022) is the 5100th day for the blog.

Blog Day :

5100 Post No. : 17034

Regulars may have noticed lack of activity in the blog on my part for the last ten odd days. From June 25 till June 28, 7 posts were published and all these articles were posted by Sudhir jee. I had specifically requested him on 24 June 2022 that “it will be difficult for me to find time for publishing new posts from 24 june till 27 June. So I request you to uphold the blog flag for these four days.”

Sudhir jee had promised to do the needful, viz ensuring that we had at least one post on each of these days. He ended up publishing four posts on 27 June 2022, prompted by an over-enthusiastic Avinash Scrapwala, who sent many RD Burman write ups on that day for publication. 🙂

I was extremely busy from the evening of 23 June till noon of 28 June. I was journeying throughout these days, crisscrossing various places, never staying in one place for more than one day. I was in mission mode to achieve mission critical tasks where Icould not afford to fail.

What exactly were there mission critical tasks ?

Convocation ceremony of 2016 batch of MBBS students of LTMMC was to take place on 24 June. As proud parents of our daughter who was among the one hundred plus MBBS students successfully completing their course and internship from LTMMC (Lokmanya Tilak Municipal Medical college), I and my wife obviously had to be present in Mumbai on this occasion. I took an evening flight from Gorakhpur to Mumbai on 23 june and arrived Mumbai at around 9 PM. My wife, who was at Bhopal, took an evening train (Punjab Mail) at Rani Kamlapati and arrived Mumbai on the morning of 24 June.

The convocation ceremony took place at the iconic Shanmukhananda auditorium of Mumbai, which is located close to LTMMC in Sion, Mumbai. I had read about this famous auditorium many times. Many well known cultural programs have taken place in this auditorium. Portraits of some legendary artists hang on the walls of the auditorium.

The convocation ceremony, which was supposed to start at 10 AM, started late, after 12 noon. The 2700 plus seat capacity auditorium was full of relatives of the students. While there were many from Mumbai and other parts of Maharashtra, several sets of parents and relatives had come from all over India, and some from abroad as well.

The 14 dignitaries (including six ladies) who were welcomed and seated on the dais were the “who is who” of medical fraternity in Mumbai.

The function was not a boring affair. These convocations held at Mumbai are very much like the film city functions, full of songs and dances. The students entered the hall dancing to some new popular Hindi movie songs, which I was obviously oblivious of. 🙂 They then took their seats in the front rows of the auditorium.

All the 14 dignitaries gave their speeches. That was followed by the function where individual students were called by name and handed over their certificates, medals etc. It was quite filmy ishtyle program. The name of the student and his/her details would be announced. Then a filmy song would play and the student would make a grand entry on the stage, dancing to that tune. Most of these tunes were new (unfamiliar to me), but I was happy to note that some of the students danced to the tunes of 1970s and 1980s Hindi movie songs as well. 🙂

The medals and certificate distribution went on till after 2 PM. then it was lunch break. After lunch break, four videos, prepared and shot by the students themselves, that showed their stay during these years in the college, were played. My daughter was co producer, director, (and actor too) in one of these videos. 🙂

It was evening when the gala function finally came to a close. The hectic and satisfying day had passed, but another hectic day awaited the two of us the next day. I and my wife had to catch an early morning flight to Gorakhpur the next day (25 June 2022).

We checked in to a hotel near the airport on the night of 24 June. We woke up at 4 AM in the morning and left for the airport. The flight was at 6 AM. We arrived Gorkhpur before time at 8 AM on 25 June which was a Saturday. After arriving at home, I (rather my wife), got busy in the task that was upon us. 90 % of the household items, including the car had already been sent to Bhopal in February 2022. The remaining items were now required to be packed and loaded on a truck to be dispatched to Bhopal. This work is normally done by professional packers, but my wife does it herself.

The truck was dispatched in the afternoon. Then we went to the gas agency and surrendered the gas connection.

The most important ‘item’ that we needed to shift was not luggage, but the two pets, namely Bhole and Izza. The cat had been shifted to Bhopal in February and that was less challenging because the cat went in our car along with wife and daughter. Taking the dogs by car for 1000 km was out of question because the car was no longer there in Gorakhpur. Moreover, the junior dog, Izza, is a very poor road traveller and she gets sick at the prospect of a road travel.

Fortuitously, there was one direct train from Gorakhpur towards Bhopal the very next morning (26 June 2022). It is the only train from Gorakhpur towards Bhopal that has an AC first coach in it. According to Railway rules, dogs can be taken either in dog box kept in Guard van (an unrealistic rule) or in AC first coach, if fellow passengers do not object. The best way to eliminate fellow passengers’ objection is to ensure that we book a two berth coupe (there are two such coupes in AC first coach). I had asked my staff to sound out the person who allots berths in the train including AC first that we should be allotted a two berth coupe.

But that is not all. Dogs are needed to be booked on the train. You need to have health certificate for them issued by a vet who certifies that they are fit to travel by train. That certificate is produced at the parcel office along with owners’ ticket and ID proof. Then a ticket is issued for the dogs allowing then to travel by train. Mostly, this booking of pets takes place one hour before the train has to start and the pets must be presented at the booking office. But that was a very challenging scenario. Gorakhpur Railway station is a very vast Railway station. The parcel booking office is in platform number one, whereas the train leaves from platform number nine. The two platforms are like two terminals of Mumbai Airport. So I sent my staff to convince the parcel officials to issue the pets documents earlier, if possible.

Next morning, my staff, who had reached the station at 5 AM, phoned me informing me that the tickets for the pets had been booked. Booked without taking the pets to the parcel office ! That was a big relief. So we directly reached at platform nine. There is a road running parallel to the platform. So we reached close to our coach and boarded the train along with the pets and luggage.The staff who had got the pets ticket booked handed me the document. I profusely thanked the staff, but failed to notice that the ticket price was Rs 400/-. However, I paid the money to the staff later.

After some initial discomfiture, both dogs, including Izza made themselves comfortable. Bhole, as is his wont being a down to earth dog, preferred to sit down on the floor. I made Izza sit on the lower berth and she soon made herself comfortable there, much to our relief.

Though we had sent most of our luggage earlier, but subsequently my wife discovered some more items that needed to be carried with us. So our luggage had become considerable. In Gorakhpur, the staff took care of carrying the luggage. I needed similar help at Bhopal. So I phoned the mechanical officer at Bhopal and requested for the help of his staff in carrying my luggage. The train arrived Bhopal before time at 8:40 PM (scheduled arrival time was 8:55 PM). The luggage and pets were deboarded.

Our daughter, after her convocation on 24 June had taken a morning flight to Bhopal on 25 June. She was to receive us at Bhopal. All the luggage and the two pets were somehow accommodated in the car. Izza, whom I was holding in the front passenger seat was putting up a stiff fight. Somehow I managed to restrain her while we arrived at the home. So our pets were successfully transported from Gorakhpur to Bhopal.

Next morning (27 June), the daughter had to go back to Mumbai. She drove the car herself to the airport. In the return direction, I drove the car back to the home. By the time we arrived home and had our breakfast etc, the daughter had already reached Mumbai. 🙂

I had my train back towards Gorakhpur in the afternoon. The train got delayed by about three hours. I boarded the train in the evening instead of afternoon, and arrived Gorakhpur at noon of 28 June, instead of morning.

If I was busy till morning on 28 June, the other engagements for the next three days were even more important. It is just that I did not have to travel on these days.

The residence items had all been sent. So I needed some other accommodation at Gorakhpur. I had already booked a transit accommodation room in a Railway Officers rest house. I went there. After getting ready, I went to office and sent the quarter vacation memo to the concerned officials. I asked my staff to find out all the clearances that are required to be taken and to take them promptly. It turned out that clearances from five different departments (electricity, telephone etc.) is needed. My staff got busy arranging for these clearances, while I got busy doing things that needed my presence.

Though we had submitted the gas cylinders and regulator two days earlier, but papers were not given on that day because the dealer was unavailable. I went to the gas agency and waited for an hour before the concerned person arrived and I could take the relevant document with me.

In the evening, there was one get together in the Railway Museum in my honor. Looking at my hectic schedule, the organizers of the function were wondering whether I would be able to attend this function. I managed to attend it. When I was asked to give a speech on the occasion, I gave a long speech, all extempore of course.

The next day, viz 29 June 2022 was rather sedate by comparison as there were no pressing engagements on that day. There was one function in the evening where my staff working directly under me honored me. There too I gave one extempore speech. My contents in this speech were different from my speech of 28 June 2022. 🙂

The next date, viz 30 June 2022 was the all important day. More than the day, I was interested in the next day, the pehli taareekh,viz 1 July 2022, when I had an early morning train to Bhopal. It was the same train in which we had transported our pets from Gorakhpur to Bhopal on 26 June 2022.

I spent the morning of 30 June 2022 packing my stuff. I was under strict instructions from my wife not to leave anything behind, not to misplace anything, and complete my packing well in advance etc. I was trying to do all that but as always, I had to leave my packing till last moment, even though my train was early morning on 1 July 2022.

In the office, I tried to clean up my stuff from almirahs, computers etc. In the computer I had logged in to my accounts of WordPress, Gmail, Office365 etc. I tried to log off from most of them but I ran out of time.

There was a function in the afternoon in HQ meeting hall headed by AGM (Additional General Manager). It was followed by a function in our own mechanical department.

Final program of the day was organised in Railway Officers club at night. Officers and their spouses were present in good number on the occasion. It was organised to honor four people including me. After cultural programs, it was time for speeches. When it was time for my speech, I gave another extempore speech. It was a lighthearted speech containing fun facts that was well received by the audience. I also mentioned the song blog towards the end of my speech. I mentioned that I had a Hindi movie songs related site called Atul Song A Day, ASAD in short. Till today, it was ASAD Gorakhpuri, from tomorrow it will be ASAD Bhopali. 🙂

The speeches were followed by dinner. Some of the guests complimented me for my witty speech, which I had thought up at the spur of the moment.

The club day was over at 10:30 PM. I went back to rest house, tried to complete the packing, but I could see that some packing could only be done at the last moment. I set alarm for 4 AM in my mobile and tried to go to sleep.

It was the alarm that woke me up. Then I realized that I had to get ready for the early morning train. I took bath, packed the remaining stuff, and checked to see that nothing was left behind. The car driver was supposed to arrive at 5 :30 AM. My luggage was all packed. All dues of all people (milkman, newsman, the person who booked my pets) were paid. My mobile which gets discharge very fast was plugged in for charging.

The car arrived. I got the stuff loaded in the car, handed over the key to the reception, and left for the station. Halfway towards the station, I pressed my left pant pocket and realized that my mobile was not there. I had forgotten the mobile back in the room. I asked the driver to turn back, the key was again taken from reception. The mobile, plugged in the power socket, was taken along with the charger. Heaving a big sigh of relief, I restarted for the station.

The train, unlike on 26 June 2022, started late. This train kept getting delayed because it went from a much longer diverted route and that took seven hours longer to reach Bhopal. The train, that was supposed to arrive Bhopal at 8:55 PM on 1 July arrived Bhopal at 4:20 AM on 2 July 2022. My luggage had become sizable and I needed to help of Railway staff this time too. The staff arrived to carry my luggage after I had already unloaded them from the train. Just as I was thinking that I may have to wait, I found my wife entering the platform. So, she had arrived to receive me, along with her sister this time. All the luggage was easily accommodated in her sister’s MUV and we left for the Bhopal home. We arrived there when it was early morning.

Why all these hectic activities ? “Blame” my birthday for this which took place on 20 June. That birthday, unlike the previous birthdays meant that it was finally time to say goodbye to Railway service. In other words, I was to retire on 30 June 2022. All the hectic engagements and functions were being held for that reason.

I am very happy and relieved that I managed to overcome all the logistical challenges successfully without any failure anywhere. It was quite a logistical challenge and it took some meticulous planning and co operation of many that led to successful executions of all the plans that were laid out.

To cut a long story short, with effect from 1 July 2022, I am a retired person settled in Bhopal. So this blog is now officially ASAD Bhopali. 😀

Today (5 July 2022) happens to be the 5100th day for the blog. It is an appropriate occasion for me to break this news to the readers of the blog. 🙂

On this occasion, I have chosen a song from ‘Sher e Watan’ (1971). It was directed by Harbans for New Sunrise Productions, Bombay. The movie had Prithviraj Kapoor, Dara Singh, Nishi, Rajan Haksar, Nadira, Bela Bose, Aruna Irani, Bhagwan, Roopali, Pal Sharma, Dhanraj, Saudagar Singh, Prakash, Trilok Singh, Uma Khosla, Bramhachari etc in it.

The movie had four songs in it. One song has already been covered in the blog. This song is sung by Mukesh and Asha Bhonsle. The song is picturised on two females where one plays the role of a male by attaching a thin mustache under her nose.

Usha Khanna is the music director. The main reason why I chose this song is that it is penned by Asad Bhopali. 😀

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.

This rarely heard song is a song that grows on you as you get exposed to this song.

It is a nice feeling to be able to join the club of our seniors. Hopefully I will be able to have an active and fruitful second innings like them. 🙂

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # # Daadaa-1978#
——————————————

If we look at the statistics of the movies released in the decade of seventies i.e., 1971-1980, and the total number of songs, the count as per HFGK is around eight thousand songs from 1327 movies ( including 1243 released movies+ Unreleased movies + movies in other languages of the ‘Hindi Belt’ of India).
Out of these eight thousand plus songs we have so far covered 2586 songs on the blog. That is not even near the half-way mark, and it means that we still have a long way to go to bring all the songs of this decade (1971-980) on the blog.

It would be interesting to know year-wise movies released and movies introduced on the blog, and the movies yet to be introduced on the blog. We are certainly going to have these statistics in the future posts on the blog. Till now we have done this exercise for the years ‘1971’ and ‘1972’.

We might have covered many of the popular songs of this era on the blog and there might also be many ‘surprises’ yet to come on the blog. The remaining songs from such movies i.e., the songs other than the most well-known songs yet to be posted on the blog would also have some ‘surprises’ which we are yet to listen to and enjoy.

For instance, take the case of today’s movie which is ‘Daadaa-1978’. It was one of the successful movies of ‘1979’ (I guess it was released in the theatres in end 1978 or in early 1979. It was passed by Censor Board on 30.11.1978).

Two most well-known songs from this movie which are ‘dil ke tukde tukde karke muskuraa ke chal diye’ and ‘allah karam karna maula tu reham karna’ have been posted on the blog. Ever since, this movie is waiting for its third song to appear on the blog and this wait has become more than ten years long.

Today I am presenting a song from this movie which is a beautiful reminder of the music of the ‘seventies’. I landed on this song via other song from the same movie. When I read the title of this (today’s) song it didn’t ring any bells, but when I listened to the song, I immediately recalled that I had heard this song before. This song was a popular enough song of its days.

I have vague memories of watching this movie with my parents and younger brothers. I didn’t remember this movie completely now except for few of its’ songs. But our favourites then were ‘gaddi jaandi hai chhalaangaa maar di’ and ‘allah karam karna maula tu reham karna’. I remember I didn’t like this song ‘dil ke tukde tukde karke’ then and it was very irritating to hear it on radio or around on loudspeakers. However, this song brought the ‘Filmfare’ award of ‘Best Male Playback Singer to Yesudas and it was on number ten in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala of 1979’.

“Daadaa-1978” was directed by Jugal Kishore for ‘Jugal Productions Combine, Bombay’.
Jugal Kishore was also the producer of this movie.

It had Vinod Mehra, Bindiya Goswami, Shashi Puri, Madhu Malini, Amjad Khan, Indrani Mukherjee, Jayshree T., Jeevan, Seema Deo, Ramesh Deo, Jagdeep, Rajendra Nath, Raza Murad, Satyen Kappu, Vijaya Choudhary, Mohan Choti, Maruti, Mohan Shery, Sheikh, Baby Pallavi, Coka Cola, Ramavatar, Shyam Kumar, Ratan Gaurang, Manmauji and many others.

Story of this movie was written by Dr. Hari Zutshi and screenplay was written by Aryan and Tejnath Zar.
Tejnath Zar also wrote the dialogues for this movie.

Editing of this movie was done by Y.G. Chavan.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 30.11.1978.

This movie had five songs- all written by five different lyricists viz. Asad Bhopali, Ravindra Jain, Kulwant Jani, Mahendra Dehalvi, Gauhar Kanpuri.
(I think that using the five separate lyricists for five songs surely paid of for this movie as all of them turned out to be good compositions).

Music for this movie was composed by Usha Khanna.

Mohd Rafi, Yesudas, Shailendra Singh, Hemlata, Dilraj Kaur, and Suman Kalyanpur had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Here is the list of songs of this movie.

SNo Song Title Singer/s Lyricist Posted On
01 Gaddi jaandi ae chhalaangaa maardi Rafi, Shailendra Singh, Dilraj Kaur, Hemlata Ravindra Jain
02 Dil ke tukde tukde kar ke muskuraa ke chal diye Yesudas Kulawant Jani 14.07.2009
03 Hamne maana hampe sajan jobanwa bharpoor hai Suman Kalyanpur Mahendra Dehalvi Being covered today
04 Allah karam karna, maula tu reham karna Suman Kalyanpur Gauhar Kanpuri 16.12.2011
05 Bemurawwat tumhe samjhenge zamaanewaale … parde mein koyi Rafi, Shailendra Singh Asad Bhopali

Today’s song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and is a ‘mujra’ song highly enjoyable and having a catchy tune. On screen it is Jayshree T. performing on this song and we can see Amjad Khan and Jeevan and others in the picturisation of this song.

(Incidentally I am coming across many Jayshree T. songs nowadays and have shared some of them recently on the blog 😊 )

This movie also brough a Filmfare award to Amjad Khan in the category of ‘Best Supporting actor’.

However, it was Amjad Khan’s performance which was the highlight of this movie with other ‘ingredients’ like the story, presentation of it on screen, catchy music and with screen presence of other actors like Vinod Mehra, Shashi Puri, Bindiya Goswami, Madhu Malini and others making this movie a perfect ‘blend’ of action, romance, friendship, and entertainment to watch on the big screen. And this movie ranked on number fifteen among the highest grossing Hindi movies of ‘1979’ (as per IMDB).

I am not going into the detail of the story of this movie as Atul ji and Sudhir ji has covered a lot about the movie in their write-ups while presenting the songs ‘dil ke tukde tukde karke muskuraa ke chal diye’ and ‘allah karam karna maula tu reham karna’ on the blog.

Let us now enjoy the today’s peppy number which I think is inspired from a ‘Bhojpuri song’. Lyrics for the today’s song are by Mahendra Dehalvi.

The engrossing voice in the today’s song is of Suman Kalyanpur and music is by Usha Khanna.

Enjoy the entertaining music of the ‘seventies’ 😊 which I am sure will take many of us to down memory lane …

“Kaaran”(1980) was a recent movie by the standards of this blog. But the movie has ended up becoming a forgotten movie by now. This movie was directed by B R Ishara for BHagyalaxmi Chitra Mandir. The movie had Raj Kiran, Shoma Anand, Navin Nischol, Ramesh Deo, Aruna Irani etc in it.

IMDB contains its storyline as below:

Mayadevi, for the sake of her modeling career, compromises and gets pregnant. She abandons her child Suraj as soon as he is born. After 8 years, Suraj’s caretaker dies, and fate brings the child back to Mayadevi. Mayadevi has a carefree and unethical lifestyle. Suraj comes to know that Mayadevi is his mother, and he wants her to accept him as her son, but she does not. This angers Suraj. He turns a rebel and vows to revenge. Suraj tries to kill Mayadevi, unsuccessfully though, and gets arrested. Police department’s welfare officer Gill decides to turn Suraj to a good citizen. Suraj escapes jail. On the run, Suraj comes across Shashi, another victim of the male dominated society and an unmarried mother to be. Events leads Gill and Shashi to persuade Suraj to mend his ways. Mayadevi also accepts him as his son.

One can say that this movie was ahead of its time and that was the reason why it flopped.

The movie had three songs in it, all of them being male solos.

Here are the details of the two songs that have been covered so far.

Blog Post number Song Date of post Singer
13250 Saawan aag lagaaye re 16 May 2017 Yesudas
14383 Kaaran na jaane koi 31 May 2018 Kishore Kumar

The third and final song from “Kaaran”(1980) is a male solo sung by Rafi. Indeewar is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

It is a less known song, or a rare song. But what a gem of a song ! A forgotten gem indeed.

With this song, all the songs of “Kaaran”(1980) get covered in the blog. “Kaaran”(1980) thus joins the list of movies that have been YIPPEED in the blog.


Song-Jiska darshan karne ko sooraj nikalta hai wo tum ho(Kaaran)(1980) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Indeewar, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

jiska darshan karne ko
sooraj nikalta hai
wo tum ho
jiska darshan karne ko
sooraj nikalta hai
wo tum ho
jiski chamak churaane ko
ye chaand machalta hai
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
jiska darshan karne ko
sooraj nikalta hai
wo tum ho

nazar mili jab tumse
koi aur nazar na aaya
koi aur nazar na aaya
tumhen banaa kar rab ne apna
sundar roop dikhaaya
sundar roop dikhaaya
jiske saamne aane ko
darpan tadapta hai
wo tum ho
jiske saamne aane ko
darpan tadapta hai
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
jiska darshan karne ko
sooraj nikalta hai
wo tum ho

taal se taal nikalte hain
sangeet basa baaton mein
sangeet basa baaton mein
kismat likh sakti ho tum
wo kala chhupi haathon mein
wo kala chhupi haathon mein
jis’se haath milaane ko
har koi tarasta hai
wo tum ho
jis’se haath milaane ko
har koi tarasta hai
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
wo tum ho
jiska darshan karne ko
sooraj nikalta hai
wo tum ho

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 159 # Missing Films of 1972 – 06#
——————————————

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Kaamnaa’ (1972). I had never heard of this movie earlier. I became aware of this movie only through HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980).

The film is directed by K Chatterjee for I.M.K. Films, Bombay. The star cast as listed in Geet Kosh includes Suma, Dinesh Rai, Sajan, Sonal, Darpan, Shambhu Mukherjee, Kailash Sharma, Gopal Bhatnagar, Ranjana, Usha, Sarita Devi, Preetam, Prem Roop, Samajeet, Prakash, Sudhanshu, Anil, Shyam, Manik, Sadanand, Udayveer, Prem, Mirchandani, BK Mukherjee, Sudhir, Satish, Namdev, Awasthi, Krishna, Satyadeep, and others. Anupama had a guest appearance in this movie. This movie was passed by Censor Board on 17.07.1972

This movie has three songs written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and composed to music by Usha Khanna. The list of songs in this movie is as given below (as provided in HFGK).

SNo Song Title Singer/s
01 Tum Kabhi Saamne Aa Jaao To Poochhoon Tumse Pankaj Udhas
02 Tori Nathani Kaahe Haale Doley Ri Usha Khanna, Chitra Singh
03 Main Aankhen Moond Ke So Jaaun Chandrani Mukherjee

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. Today’s song is sung by Usha Khanna and Chitra Singh and picturised on two actresses whom I am unable to identify, and many other artistes are seen in the picturisation of this song.
[Ed Note: The two dancers are Anupama (in orange dress) and Habiba Rehman (in blue dress). Thanks to Prakash ji for the identification.]

Here is the alphabetical list of movies of 1972 up to today’s movie, which is the 61st film in this list.
[Ed Note: In the interest of brevity, the list is collapsed to show the films onward from the previous episode in the series , namely ‘Gaaon Hamaara Shehar Tumhaara’ plus the ones that are without any available information or songs. Readers may refer to previous episodes of this series for earlier details – “Nai Hawa Mein Udne Dekho Ban Ka Mor Chala“.]

Note: – Songs for ‘Bachche Mere Saathi’, ‘Gunfighter Johny’ and ‘Hunterwaali’ seems to be unavailable as of now. And there is no information about the songs in HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) for the movies – ‘Aakraant’, ‘Bharat Darshan’, ‘Fighter Sheela’ and ‘Jaadoo Nagari’ as mentioned above.

Today’s song from the movie ‘Kaamnaa’ is sung by Usha Khanna and Chitra Singh. Music is composed by Usha Khanna. The video and audio versions have common ‘first stanza’ of the song but the second stanza in both the version is different.

As mentioned above I am unable to identify the artistes. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy the today’s lovely song…

बोले ये खिली खिली गालों की कलियाँ
पिया के संग तू मनाए रंगरलियाँ

Hullo Atuldom

“Gopichand Jaasoos”(1982) was written, produced and directed by Naresh Kumar for Dimple Films, Bombay. The movie had Raj Kapoor, Zeenat Aman, Prem Chopra, I.S.Johar, Viju Khote, Sujit Kumar, Rajan Haksar, Pinchoo Kapoor, Gurbachan Singh, Manmohan Krishna, Sunder, Raj Kishore, Jugnu, Brahm Bhardwaj, Rattan Gurang, Mama, Ram Murti, Ram Lal, Billa, with friendly appearances by Sanjana, Ram Mohan, Chandrashekhar, Meher Mittal and guest appearance by Vinod Mehra.

If I am not wrong Dimple Films was the banner under which Naresh Kumar (was he brother of Rajendra Kumar?) made films. He had made “Do Jasoos” in 1975 which had Rajendra Kumar and Raj Kapoor playing ‘bumbling detectives’ Dharamchand and Karamchand. This 1982 movie had Gopichand as the Jasoos, so do we call it a sequel? 🙂

The 6 songs of the movie were penned by Santosh Anand and Munsif and Usha Khanna was the music director. Kamlesh Awasthi gives playback for Raj Kapoor and I felt his voice was Nitin Mukesh-like. Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhonsle were the female playbacks. Two songs of the movie are present on the blog.

Song Date of post
Cheen nahin Japan nahin Gopichand Jasoos 5 June 2015
Chhoti si gilasiya mein bhang hamen dai de 19 November 2016

Chhoti si gilasiya mein bhang hamen dai de was on the occasion of the darling of moviegoers, of the 70s and 80s, Zeenie baby’s birthday. Today, 14th December, is the 97th birth anniversary of Ranbir Raj Kapoor- son of Prithviraj and Ramsarni Devi Kapoor, brother of Shamsher Raj Kapoor, Balbir Raj Kapoor and two sisters. Ranbir Raj Kapoor is father to Randhir (Dabboo), Rishi (Chintu), Rajeev (Chimpu) and Ritu and Rima. He has grandchildren who are into Bollywood too.

We are remembering Raj Kapoor, who was also called the Greatest Showman of Indian Cinema (in his time) or the Charlie Chaplin of Indian Cinema- this because he had adopted the Chaplin style of walking when he portrayed the common man, in Awara, Shree 420 etc., who was cheerful and honest inspite of adversities.

I may have seen his best works rather late in my life, after his passing in 1988 to be more exact, but I have definitely relished Shree 420, Awara, Anari, Jaagte Raho, Chori Chori etc. I loved all the songs of all his films be they of the 50s, 60s, or even the later ones- when he produced and directed movies and his sons played the lead. The songs of all his films have stood the test of the times and are popular internationally too. The 70s and early 80s also saw Raj Kapoor acting in films which were not from his ‘RK Films’- ‘Abdullah’, ‘Khan Dost’, ‘Do Jasoos, ‘Naukri’ etc. His last on-screen appearance was in ‘Vakil Babu’ (a full-fledged role) though he was seen in a Siddharth Kak made documentary that was based on the life and times of ‘Raj Kapoor – the Showman’ (in 1987).

He was working on the script of “Henna” after tasting success with “Ram Teri Ganga Mali” when his journey in this mortal world was cut short due to complications arising from his Asthama.
I could go on and on writing about Raj Kapoor and his songs many of which were philosophical like ‘sajan re jhooth mat bolo’; ‘kisiki muskuraahaton pe ho nisaar’; and the most popular of them all which was prophetic too “jeena yahan marna yahan” which had the poignant line “kal khel mein hum ho na ho gardish mein taarein rahenge sada, bhoologe tum, bhoolenge woh par hum tumhaare rahenge sada.” These words sealed his place in our hearts.

Today’s song is a baraat song where we have Raj Kapoor as a Sardar leading the proceedings in the voice of Kamlesh Awasthi with Zeenat Aman looking gorgeous as Punjaban (like I have said in my last post to the song from this movie, Zeenat Aman looked great in whatever she wore) singing in Lata Mangeshkars’ voice.

kho gayi ee re
baalma mori lat suljhaa de
o baalma mori lat suljhaa de

tumko meri preet pukaare
ye adhooraa geet pukaare
tumko meri prit pukaare
ye adhooraa geet pukaare
o mere nain hain bechain
zaraa dekho ji
o mera pyaar hai majhdhaar
zaraa socho ji
baalma re haay
baalma mori lat suljhaa de
o baalma mori lat suljhaa de

dil kaa pyaara dil kaa vaasi
samjhe na zaalim baat zaraa si
dil kaa pyaara dil kaa vaasi
samjhe na zaalim baat zaraa si
o tere pyaar ki sau baar kasam khaati hoon
o tere naam se dil thhaam ke rah jaati hoon
baalma re haay
baalma mori lat suljhaa de
o baalma mori lat suljhaa de

preet ne chhedi hai shahnaai
dil se ho gayi dil ki sagaai
preet ne chhedi hai shahnaai
dil se ho gayi dil ki sagaai
o mere pyaar kaa ye taar kabhi toote naa
o mere haath se ye haath kabhi chhoote naa
baalma re haay
baalma mori lat suljhaa de
bindiyaa kho gayi
kho gayi
kho gayi re
baalma mori lat suljhaa de
o baalma mori lat suljhaa de ae

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2011-2021) – Song No.29
——————————————————————-

This day 10 years ago, viz 4 july 2011 was a monday. That day saw the blog adding as many as seven songs to its tally. Here are the details of the seven songs that were covered on this day seven years ago:-

Blog post number Song Movie (Year) Remarks
4123 Raadhe Raani de daaro na bansari mori re Pooran Bhagat(1933) 6 songs covered so far out of 20
4124 Itne door hain huzoor Pyaar Ki Jeet(1948) All 8 songs covered. Movie YIPPEED
4125 Bewafa duniya ki hamne bewafaayi dekh li Grihasthhi(1948) 6 songs covered so far out of 8
4126 Wo to baans Bareilly se aayaa Dahej(1950) All 10 songs covered. Movie YIPPEED
4127 Dil par huaa aisaa jaadoo Mr and Mrs 55(1955) All 8 songs covered. Movie YIPPEED
4128 Maanjhi meri qismat ke Ham Hindustani(1960) 6 songs covered out of 9
4129 Koyi nahin hai phir bhi hai mujhko Patthar Ke sanam(1967) All 7 songs covered. Movie YIPPEED

One can see that four movies ho songs got covered ten years ago have since been YIPPEED. So only three movies, whose songs got covered that day are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today, ten year later.

“Ham Hindustani”(1960) is one of those movies. “Ham Hidustani”(1960) was produced by S Mukherjee and directed by Ram Mukherjee for Filmalay, Bombay. This patriotic movie, seeking to inspire Indians to make India great again through deeds and not by rhetoric, had Sunil Dutt, Asha Parekh, Joy Mukherjee,Helen , Jageerdaar, Agha, Leela, Chitnis, Mubarak, Vijaya Chaudhary, Malika, Sheela Rao, Mirza Musharraf, Rav Avtaar, Moni, Chatterjee, Hari Shivdasani, Yogendra, Bob, B K Mukherjee, Sarita, Saibi, Sitaram, < Baby Nasreen, Caeser, Shyam Chatterjee etc in it.

The movie had nine songs in it that were penned by five lyricists.

Six songs have been covered so far.

As Blog ten year challenge, here is another song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Bharat Vyas is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

This movie has some well knon songs in it, but the song under discussion is not among them. I heard this song from the first time only today ! What a fantastic semi classical song sung by Lata Mangeshkar. This song should be considered among her masterclass songs. Sadly this song has been forgotten.

The song is picturised as a Lord Krishn related stage dance song, as one can guess from the lyrics. A very young Asha Parekh plays Radha and lip syncs this song. Malika (sister of Mumtaz) plays Lord Krishn. Sheela Rao is also seen in the picturisation.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Blog Day :

4716 Post No. : 16423

“Ek Paheli”(1971) was directed by Naresh Kumar for Asha Movies, Bombay. This suspense movie had Feroz Khan, Tanuja, Rajendranath, Madan Puri, Aruna Irani, Bipin Gupta, Madhavi, Manohar Deepak, Tuntun, Daljeet, Laxmi Arya, B M Vyas, Sndar, Uma Khosla etc in it.

“Ek Paheli”(1971) had six songs in it. Five songs have been covered so far. Here are the details of these five songs :-

Song Date of posting
Mera tumhaara saath to sadiyon ka saath hai 15 June 2009
Kaahe kartaa hai tu itna shor…tera mera ek rastaa 9 September 2009
Aansoo ki ik boond hoon main 20 December 2013
Main ek paheli hoon barson se akeli hoon 25 September 2020
Ye raat ye jawaani ye botal sharaab ki 9 June 2021

Here is the sixth and final song from “Ek Paheli”(1971) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. This song plays in the background with suspense all over the place. We see Feroz Khan, Madan Puri etc hiding behind various places in a Cementry while a mysterious female figure is seem walking around ruins. Unlike most Hindi suspense movies, where the mysterious female figure dons a white sari, here the female figure is in western dress ! That is a bit of a letdown as far as I am concerned. 🙂

The song itself is suitably spooky, hich could be described as a “gumnaam hai koi” genre of song. Suman Kalyanpur has done a very nice job singing it. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

With this song, all the six songs of “Ek Paheli”(1971) are covered in the blog and the movie gets YIPPEED in the blog.

Aaja aaja aaja ab to aa jaa (Ek Paheli)(1971) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Asad Bhopali, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

koi aahat koi sadaa
jab aayi
dil chaunk uthha
bheegi bheegi palken jhhapkin
mujhse mere dil ne kaha
dil ne kaha
aaja
aaja
aaja
Ab to aa jaa
dhhalne lage hain ujli raat ke dhundhhle saaye
aaja
aaja
aaja

ae mere mehboob e nazar
aa bhi jaa
ab der na kar
khul jaaye na raaz kahin
aa jaaye na koi idhar
koi idhar
aaja
aaja
aaja
Ab to aa jaa
dhhalne lage hain ujli raat ke dhundhhle saaye
aaja
aaja
aaja

dil ki baat adhoori kyun hai
pyaar mein ye majboori kyun hai
janam janam se hum donon mein
aakhir itni doori kyun hai
doori kyun hai
aaja
aaja
aaja
