Blog Day : 3470 Post No. : 13933

When I looked at the filmography of Madan Mohan, I found that “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) is one of the few movies that is not yet represented in the blog. The movie was directed by Jagdev Bhambhri for Hema Pictures, Bombay. This social movie had Hema Malini, Feroz Khan, Neetu Singh, Jagdeep, Abhi Bhattacharya, Afzal Khan, Baby Madhu Malini, Hakeem, Surendra Khosla, Hitler, Dev Sharma, Moolchand, and Helen, with special roles by Bindu, Padma Khanna, Aparna Chaudhary, Dev Kumar, Fariyal, Laxmi Chhaaya, Jayshree T, Dheeraj, Tabrez, Gopal Sahgal, Sudarshan Sharma, Nandu, Jagdev Bhambhri etc in it.

This “social” movie had five songs in it. It is a popular misconception for people, including me that the song sharaafat chhod di maine is from this movie. No, this song is from “Sharaafat”(1970).

“Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) had five songs in it. Four of the songs are Asha Bhonsle solos and one song is a Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet.

Here is the first song from “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Verma Malik is the lyricist. music is composed by Madan Mohan.

There are several observations one can make about this song. First is that Madan Mohan was clearly under instructions to create a tune that sounded like RD Burman. Second observation is that this song is a Helen song but with some difference. Helen does give a cabaret dance performance, but she is dressed not like a cabaret dancer but like how an apsara out on a mission to break the “tapasya” of a tapaswi muni would dress. Third observation is that the person incharge of getting this song picturised was quite a confused soul. He did not have much clue what to do and he succeeded in totally messing up the picturisation of this song. Most Helen songs are supposed to be watched, but here is a Helen song picturisation that tries to show almost every actor acting in the movie instead of concentrating on the main task at hand viz choreography of this song and thus wasting Helen in this song.

The movie, it goes without saying, deservedly failed at the box office. Nevertheless, the movie has music by Madan Mohan so this movie needs to find representation in the blog. Better late than never. so here is this Helen song from “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976). With this song, “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam (Sharafat Chhod Di Maine)(1976) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics

aaj ki mehfil
aaj ki shaam
aaj ki mehfil
aaj ki shaam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam
aaj paimaana aur ye jaam
aaj paimaana aur ye jaam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam

shaab e hayaat laaun
jannat ka khwaab laaun
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam

saanson ki garmi de doon
dhadkan ki thhaap de doon
o o
saanson ki garmi de doon
dhadkan ki thaap de doon
aankhon ka pyaar de doon
dil ka milaap de doon
pyaar ke pyaale mein ye bhara hai
paigaam
paigaam
paigaam
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam

honthon pe mere dilbar tera hi naam aaye
o o
honthon pe mere dilbar tera hi naam aaye
ji chaahta hai aisi har roz shaam aaye
ab to hai zindagi bas yahi kaam
kaam
ho kaam
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam
teri khaatir tere naam

The uncertainties of life, in some way, always gives us happy as well as sad moments and surprises as well. The journey of life keeps on going on and on still, like that only. . . We never know how things are going to happen around us and what ‘life’ has there in store for us with every new day coming.

In olden days, viz 1970s and prior to that, people, including kids, would wake up at 6 AM and would go to bed at 9 PM. There were elders who would managed to awake till about 10 PM or so. I, as a kid, found it extremely difficult to keep my eyes open after 9:30. Vividh Bharti those days used to have a radio programme called Hawamahal. As soon as I heard the signature tune of this programme, my eyelids would begin to get heavy and I would feel sleepy. This signature tune was more sleep inducing for me that any lullaby ever would be. 🙂 . For those who have not heard the signature song of “Hawamahal”, here is how it sounded like:

Hullo to all in Atuldom

So now we are all busy discussing the pros and cons of the demonetisation on our WhatsApp group. We are also having a fair number of jokes on the subject. But as our dear thandapani mentioned last week when our PM dropped the demonetisation bomb (as I like to call it) I have also decided to wait and watch for the rush at the banks and cash ATMs. At such a time a few songs ran through my mind. Let us have one of them today.

Hullo to all Atulites

So let us have a song today(11 november 2016) to wish the Bengali/ Nepali beauty Mala Sinha on her 80th birthday. I don’t remember when was it that I became aware of this sweet smiled, doe eyed and talented actress. Must be when I saw a song where she was running around singing “Neeli aankh milalo ji, dil mein aaj chuppa lo jee” or singing “yaa allah yaa allah dil le gaya”. But I must have also seen her sing “chupke se dil dai de de nahin te shor mach jayega” alongwith our own Rajesh Khanna. She looked very cute and naughty in all these songs. Who can forget her say “hum moond ke palkon ko iss dil ko sazaa de toh”; or her “bade naa samajh ho yeh kya chahate ho”; looks like I can go on and on and on with my list of favourite Mala Sinha songs (didn’t know I knew so many!) But then she slowly graduated to roles of playing slightly senior characters not like Nirupa Roy or Indrani Mukherjee’s mother act but more like Asha Parekh or Waheeda Rehman’s wife of the senior hero who gets a song or two as in some of her 80s and 90s movies.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 35
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

इकतारा बोले॰॰॰ तुन तुन
क्या कहे ये तुमसे॰॰॰ सुन सुन
बात है लंबी मतलब गोल
खोल ना दे ये सबके पोल
तो फिर उसके बाद
इकतारा बोले॰॰॰ तुन तुन

There is an interesting aside related to this iconic song from the 1970 film ‘Yaadgaar’. This song was originally written as a romantic song with the lines

रात अकेली साये दो
हुस्न भी हो और इश्क़ भी हो
तो फिर उसके बाद

It was selected by Manoj Kumar for his seminal classic ‘Upkar’. Eventually, this song somehow could not be fitted into the storyline. The song remained in suspended state, till Manoj Kumar revived it three years later, got it modified into a song of social messaging, and included it in his film ‘Yaadgaar’. After spending two and a half decades practically in the wilderness in the industry, here came the first major super hit for the song writer. This surely must be a record of some sorts.

The Voice of Mukesh #70
– – – – – – – – – – – – –

This voice has such an alluring appeal. No matter what the song may be, Mukesh ji’s voice has the quality to enliven the song with the depth of his soulful emotion. The words come alive with his rendition. Listen to any of his songs, whether they have been popularized on account of association with successful films and actors, or they belong to obscure, unheard and unsuccessful films. His songs from many such films have remained obscure and unheard. For songs of Mukesh, the unexplored era is primarily in the 1970s.  There still are many songs sung by him, that have to find their place on this blog. Many of them are unfamiliar and obscure, and some are familiar but unheard for long.
