Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 9 # Bhupinder Singh #

———————————————–———————————–——————

[Author’s Note : It is very unfortunate that this article which was in making with me since a very long time is being posted at a time when the ‘legendary voice’ discussed in this article has left us for it’s heavenly abode. . .
I would like to present it as it is where I stopped last and was supposed to add about the biographical information to finish this article. However, I will try to come back in future to present another article having the biographical information of this singer.]

Welcome all to this article where I will be taking you all down memory lane with the voice of Bhupinder Singh.

I am sure this name will immediately fill your minds with those many memorable songs and nostalgia associated with it. We all know this song “Naam Gum Jaayega. . . Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai” and we also know the two voices in this song. And there have been albums/programs using the tag-line “aawaaz hi pehchaan hai” or “meri aawaaz hi pehchaan hai” from this song, for various compilations. And very naturally mostly they were identified or are related with the legendary female voice in this song which is of the ‘legend’ Lata Mangeshkar ji.

However, for me or maybe I can say that for few or many like me, we also remember this song mainly for the male voice in this song which is Bhupinder Singh ji. . . And again, for people like me (I am sure there must be many) this ‘aawaaz hi pehchaan hai’ is the ‘pehchaan’ of the ‘aawaaz’ and the name Bhupinder Singh.

I don’t know where it did start that I fall in love with this ‘gunguni’ aawaaz (as said by Khayyam Saab) which for me is ‘a voice which has pain and compassion’ and yes, it did have a ‘soothing effect’ too. If I try to recollect it now, I remember that I must have watched this movie ‘Kinaara’ (1977) around 1979-80 in our colony club during the weekly screening of movies there.

Among other songs from this movie this song “Naam Gum Jaayega” was the song easily touching the hearts, and not only touching but constantly growing on one’s mind, and it was also a popular song in those days (if I am correct).

But, I think, before that it was “Dil Dhoondhta Hai Phir Wahi Fursat Ke Raat Din (happy version) which I always think I must have listened frequently on radio and especially during the summer vacations when we used to sleep in the courtyard during every summer season in those years… and from this song itself these lines ya garmiyon ki raat jo purwaayiyaan chalen have been connected to my mind with garmi ki chhuttiyaan aur aangan mein letna. . .

And may be after that it was “Do Deewaane Shahar Mein, which is purely nostalgic for me and I like this song very much. This song has been a continued favorite of mine over all these years and whenever I have listened to it, its ‘magic’ on me has been the same effect each and every time – whatever we consider – be it the lyrics, the composition or its singing by Bhupinder Singh and Runa Laila. (For this one song specially and very few other songs, (I think she has very few in HFM), Runa Laila’s voice is one of the voices that I had in my memory, and which also is a part of this series).

During those years may be, I had listened “Sainyya Bina Ghar Soona“, “Ye Paudhe Ye Patte … Man Kahe Main Jhoomoon“, “Rangmahal Ke Dus Darwaaze… Sainyya Nikas Gaye” which got permanently embedded in my memories connected with childhood days. And these songs thereafter became part of my ‘nostalgia’ of those years.

When I started collecting cassettes, I was always looking for these songs for my collection and except the song from ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ the other two were very difficult to find and I got them much later when we landed in ‘net-yug’.

I remember I watched ‘Maasoom’ after I passed out my matriculation exams in 1983 and among other songs from this movie I did also like the song “Huzoor Is Kadar Bhi Na Itraa Ke Chaliye“.

Around the same time as I was growing my fascination for Rajesh Khanna movies, and I had become a Rajesh Khanna fan I came to know about this lovely song from ‘Aakhri Khat’ (1966) “Rut Jawaan Jawaan“.

Then In 1985-1986 I had bought the movie album by T-series for my cassette collection, and I became aware of this song “Yaaro Neelaam Karo Susti” because of the album of the movie ‘Prem Pujari’ (1970).

In mid-eighties, there was this album from HMV, which was a compilation of songs of Bhupinder Singh from films and titled as ‘Karoge Yaad To’ (if I am not wrong), however this cassette has been misplaced somewhere from my collection. Through this album I got introduced to many of his gems which I had not listened earlier, viz.

Mere ghar aana aana zindagi

Thodisi zameen thodaa aasmaan

Koi jab se sharik e caravan hai’

Karoge yaad to

Gulaab jism ka yoonhi nahin khilaa hoga

Ek hi khwaab kai baar dekha hai maine

I still remember that this song “Kisi Nazar Ko Tera Intezaar Aaj Bhi Hai” from the 1985 movie ‘Aitbaar’ had become very popular then and heard frequently on radio and cassette players. I remember I bought the above album from Nehru Place market in New Delhi in one of my official visits there.

But I was always well aware of the song “Hoke Majboor Mujhe” from ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964), since my childhood days, may be because of my parents and their love for music. This song was played on radio frequently. When I grow up, I got to listened to it frequently on music programs on radio especially in the program of ‘All India Radio’s Urdu Service’. I had bought the cassette of ‘Haqeeqat’ during my stay at Kota from 1988-89 onwards.

When I get associated with this blog, I had shared lyrics of some of the above-mentioned songs and later I had also shared the following songs with articles.

Zindagi phoolon ki nahin, phoolon ki tarah mehki rahe ae’

Koyi jab se shareeq e kaarvaan hain’

Zehar detaa hai mujhe koyi dawaa detaa hain’

Aaj bichhde hain kal ka darr bhi nahin’

Nayi umr ke naye sitaaron’

Raat banoon main aur chaand bano tum’

Sooliyon pe chadhke choome aaftaab ko’

Ahl e dil yoon bhi nibhaa lete hain’

Ye zindagi hai chaar pal’

 Listening to the songs sung by Bhupinder Singh has always given me immense pleasure and calmed my mind during various situations in life. It is like applying the ‘spiritual balm’ on one’s wounds. Also, I think that his voice is like a ‘equilibrium’ – always balanced. In happy situations neither you go jumping with his songs and similarly in sad songs you didn’t start crying. It balances the ‘mood’ whatever you are in, and it motivates to move forward from that point of time. It inspires.

Khayyam Saab had mentioned Bhupinder Singh’s voice as ‘a meethhi gunguni awaaz’ and Gulzar Saab said this unki aawaaz ka agar taabiz ban sakta to main zaroor banaa ke pehan leta’.

What to say … such a magical voice has left us now forever.

And readers will note that I have only mentioned about his voice in above write up. We should not forget that he was also an ‘ace instrumentalist’. Naushad Saab had said about Bhupinder Singh that nobody could come to closer to him in performing on guitar.

Bhupinder Singh has been instrumental in many unforgettable hits of HFM where he has played guitar in the songs. There are over three hundred songs where he has performed Guitar. I am not going to list the songs where he played the guitar. Not only Guitar but he also played ‘wood rubaab’. (I am not sure if he played rubaab in film compositions too).

Then there is altogether separate identity of Bhupinder Singh which is as a ‘Ghazal Singer’. That will also require another separate post and I am not going to discuss this in today’s post.

In the recent months I have regularly listened to his many songs and many non-film songs too since I want to finish this write-up. I came across many songs which I wish to bring here on the blog in the future.

I would also like to mention one of his songs which is very close to my heart and which is from the album ‘Karadi Katha – Bandar Bindaas Bandar’, the song is “Ae Dost Bahadur Dost Mere”.

Then here is a link of the song which also I came across in recent past — “Moko Kahaan Dhoondhhe Re Bande

Today I present a song from the movie ‘Manzilen Aur Bhi Hain’ (1974) which is written by Yogesh. This song is sung by Bhupinder Singh and is also composed by him. Yes, I think this was the first and last time when he composed a music for a Hindi Film.

So, today on the blog, we introduce music director Bhupinder Singh Soni (or Bhupendra Soni as mentioned in HFGK).

‘Manzilen Aur Bhi Hain’ was directed by Mahesh Bhatt for Cine Guild, Bombay. It had Kabir Bedi, Prema Narayan, Gulshan Arora, Poornima, Sudhir, Shah Agha, Mukesh Bhatt, Soni, Randhir Raj, Viju Khote, Kirti Kumar, Sundar, Uma Dutt, Mac Mohan, and others. This movie was passed by Censor Board (after many ‘cuts’ as mentioned by Bhupinder Singh himself in his ‘exclusive interview’ (link given below)) on 13.08.1974 with an ‘A’ certificate (or restricted viewing certificate).

This movie has four songs written by Yogesh and composed to music by Bhupinder Singh. This movie is making its debut on the blog today.

 

Our tributes to our beloved Bhupinder Singh!!!

unki aawaaz hi pehchaan hai … aur sadiyon tak yah pehchaan rahegi …

yah aawaaz is kaainaat mein goonjti rahegi, gungunaati rahegi, gaati rahegi …

hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
to kya huaa jo
rahen nahin ham dahr ke liye. . .

zindagi phoolon ki nahin
phoolon ki tarah
mehki rahe ae. . .

Song – Har Ek Saans Hai Mehmaan Kuchh Pehar Ke Liye (Manzilein Aur Bhi Hain) (1974) Singers – Bhupendra, Lyrics – Yogesh, MD – Bhupendra

Lyrics 

har ek saans hai
mehmaan kuchh pahar ke liye
har ek raat bani hai
yahaan sahar ke liye
har ek saans. . .

qafas mein rehke
bahaaron se kya hamen lena aa
kafas mein rehke
bahaaron se kya hamen lena
haseen ab ye nazaarein hain
bas nazar ke liye
har ek saans …

hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
hamaare baad bhi
aayenge log jaayenge
to kya huaa jo
rahe nahin ham dahr ke liye

har ek saans hai
mehmaan kuchh pahar ke liye
har ek raat bani hai
yahaan sahar ke liye
har ek saans …

हर एक सांस है
मेहमान कुछ पहर के लिए
हर एक रात बनी है
यहाँ सहर के लिए
हर एक सांस है॰ ॰ ॰

कफ़स में रह के
बहारों से क्या हमें लेना
कफ़स में रह के
बहारों से क्या हमें लेना
हसीन अब ये नज़ारे हैं
बस नज़र के लिए
हर एक सांस है॰ ॰ ॰

हमारे बाद भी
आएंगे लोग जाएंगे
हमारे बाद भी
आएंगे लोग जाएंगे
तो क्या हुआ जो
रहे नहीं हम दहर के लिए

हर एक सांस है
मेहमान कुछ पहर के लिए
हर एक रात बनी है
यहाँ सहर के लिए
हर एक सांस है॰ ॰ ॰

Blog 10-Year Challenge (2012-2022) – Song No. 50
————————————————————————————–

Welcome all to this post under ‘blog ten-year challenge’ of ‘2012-2022’. Ten years ago, in the year 2012 the blog was around four years old and already going great in terms of ‘daily posts’ on the blog.

In the year ‘2008’ there were 475 songs posted on the blog from ‘July’ to ‘December-2008’. The average was around 3 songs or posts per day.

However, the blog celebrated a ‘musical feast’ for next four years I must say. Let us have a look on the total number of posts from ‘2009 to 2012’ on the blog as per following.

Year Total posts Average per day
2009 1768 4.84
2010 1167 3.20
2011 1819 4.98
2012 2071 5.66

We can see that the year ‘2012’ saw a total of ‘2071 posts’ at the rate of almost six songs per day. And that remains the ‘highest score’ for the blog in a ‘year’ so far, till date.

The next year i.e., ‘2013’ the figures tried hard to catch ‘2000’ but could reach to ‘1916’ posts only.

From here onwards i.e., the next four years viz. ‘2014’, ‘2015’, ‘2016’ and ‘2017’ the blog averaged 1159 posts per year at the rate of ‘03’ song posts per day.
And going further down in the next four years i.e., ‘2018’ to ‘2021’ the average rate of posts per year was 721 only at an average of ‘02’ songs per day.

And this year ‘2022’ till now, the average maintained so far again comes to 2 posts per day. 😊

So, we have seen that the year ‘2012’ was a very special year for the blog. Posts were raining down at the rate of ‘more than five’ per day.

Coming back to today’s day, 4th June, this date ten years back i.e., in 2012 saw as many as nine articles posted on the blog as per details given below.

Song Movie title(Year) Remarks
Jo tum kar sakte ho main kar saktaa hoon badh ke Adaa(1951) All songs covered
Phool bagiya mein bhanwre aaye Zindagi Aur Khwaab(1961) All songs covered
Dil mera tumhaari adaayein le gayi Gauri(1968) All songs covered
Pathh bhoola ke aaya musaafir Door Gagan Ki Chhaaon Mein(1964) All songs covered
Mere yaar tu chhod gham Love In Canada(1979) 01 of 04 songs posted
Ek to soorat pyaari aur oopar se ye naaz Vallaah Kya Baat Hai(1962) All songs covered
Kayi din se dil hai bekal Dulhan Ek Raat Ki(1966) All songs covered
Ye waqt na kho jaaye Raaste Pyaar Ke(1982) 03 of 06 songs posted
Raaste mein ik haseen Basant(1960) 11 of 14 songs posted

From the above table we can see that out of the nine movies represented on the blog on 04.06.2012 six movies have already been ‘Yippeeee’ed’.

That leaves us with three movies viz. ‘Love in Canada-1979’, ‘Raaste Pyaar Ke-1982’ and ‘Basant-1960’ that are eligible for Blog Ten Year Challenge today.

I am presenting a song from the movie ‘Love In Canada-1979’.

HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) mentions in the ‘addenda’ for this movie that this movie was an imported movie from the year ‘1979’.

‘Love in Canada-1979’ was directed by S. Ramnathan for ‘Tyagi Films Limited’. It had Vinod Mehra, Maushumi Chatterjee, Shelly Homik (Miss Teen Canada/new discovery), Jeetendra (in special appearance), Asrani, Aruna Irani, Iftekhar, Indrani Mukherji, Abrar Alvi, and others.

This movie had four songs (including one two-part song). Lyrics for three songs (including one two-part song) were written by Yogesh and one song was penned by Sharon Prabhakar.

Music for this movie was composed by Hemant Kumar.

Mohd Rafi, Hemant Kumar, Arti Mukherjee, Lata Mangeshkar, and Sharon Prabhakar had given their voices to the song of this move.

This movie seems to be an obscure movie of its time, though it seems to be available on internet, I had not watched this movie. All songs from this movie are new for me.
Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar.

Lyrics for the today’s song were sent by Prakashchandra who has also shared the links of the song and link of the movie too, with other details of this movie.

As mentioned above Lyrics for the today’s song are written by Yogesh and music is composed by Hemant Kumar.

Let us listen to the today’s song now which has good meaningful verses …

I hope readers will enjoy this song …

It can be seen from the table of 1989 that Lata Mangeshkar sang 38 songs in 19 movies released in 1989.
8 songs sung by Lata Mangeshkar in movies of 1989 have been covered in the blog. All Lata songs from two movies (one song each from “Jurrat” and “Ram Lakhan”) have been covered. That leaves us with 36 songs from 17 movies of 1989 that are yet to be covered.

Alphabetically “Aakhri Badla”(1989) is the first movie of 1989 that offers us a Lata Mangeshkar song to be covered in the blog.

“Aakhri Badla”(1989) was produced by Produced by Biswanath Ghosh and Jibananda Ghosh and directed by Mangal Chakraborty for B T B Enterprises. The movie had Pradeep Kumar, Prem Chopra, Abhi Bhattacharya, Anil Chatterjee, Tom Alter, Avijeet Sen, Bishwanath Ghoshe, Hilary Eastwick Held,
Babban Lal Yadav, Jay Shree T, Daljeet Kaur, Miss Sagiri –Suzaki, Miss Sayuri –Khishino, Miss Mayumi – Kitho, Gyanesh Mukherjee, Jibananda Ghoshe, Shiva, Pammi Shandhu, Babban, Biren Chatterjee, Jawahar Kaul, T.Makhino, T.Maeda, C.Key, K.Hotta,G.Togami,J.Robert, E.Newman etc. The movie had guest appearances by Yogita Bali(Chakraborty) and International fame Martial art expert Hirokazu-Kanazawa as Kitahara.

“Aakhri Badla”(1989) had a chequered history. It was planned on an ambitious grandiose scale as a bilingual movie in Banagla and Hindi. The movie kept getting delayed. By the time it could be released, more than 7 years later, the movie had few takers

The movie had four songs in it. One of them was a Kishore Kuamr Lata Mangeshkar duet. Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Salil Chaudhary.

Only the audio of the song seems to be available. Salil Chaudhary had used this tune earlier in a Malayalam film “Etho Oru Swapnam” (1978) and then in the Tamil film “Azhiyadha Kolangal” (1978), both with music by Salil Chaudhary. The Malayalam film song “Poomanam Poothulanje” was sung by Yesudas, while the Tamil song “Poo Vannam Pola Nenjam” was sung by P. Jayachandran and P. Susheela. This tune was even older. It was initially released in 1980 under the title “Antarghat”.

Lyrics of the song and other details were sent by Prakashchandra.

With this song, “Aakhri Badla”(1989) makes its debut in the blog.

‘Jeena Yahaan’ (1979) haa an impressive list of actors of the new wave films but I do not recall having read or heard about this film. So, I recently watched this film on a video sharing platform. The story of the film was interesting and was in keeping with Basu Chatterjee’s favourite subject – the lives of middle-class people in urban setting.

‘Jeena Yahaan’ (1979) was produced under the banner of Jamu Productions and was directed by Basu Chatterjee. The star cast included Shabana Azmi, Shekhar Kapoor, Amol Palekar, Zarina Wahab, Dina Pathak, Kiran Vairale, Vidya Sinha, Devendra Khandelwal, Arvind Deshpande etc. The film was based on a short story written by a well-known Hindi writer, Mannu Bhandari. Incidentally, Basu Chatterjee’s ‘Rajnigandha’ (1974) was also based on Mannu Bhandari’s short story, ‘Yahi Sach Hai’. She has also written screen-play of the film ‘Swaami’ (1977), directed by Basu Chatterjee. Incidentally, Basu Chatterjee’s maiden directorial venture, ‘Saara Aakash’ (1969) was based on the first part of Rajendra Yadav’s novel of the same name. Rajendra Yadav is the husband of Mannu Bhandari.

Mannu Bhandari is one of the pioneers of Hindi literary movement called ‘Nayi Kahaani’ (New Story). Under this movement, stories are written based on the real-life experiences. She generally writes short stories on middle class women who is financially independent and intellectually capable to share the responsibilities on equal footing with men. Most of the character in her short stories are woman-centric. I have given story-writer’s background just to give an idea as to how the story in the film unfolds.

Shekhar (Shekhar Kapoor) and Lekha (Shabana Azmi) are from small towns who had made Mumbai their work place. Both are in love with each other and wants to get married. But their families are against this marriage because both belong to different castes. One day, both of them get married under Special Marriage Act, without the knowledge of their respective parents and start living in a small rented tenement. In the evening they spend time with their theatre friends with Sushma (Zarina Wahab) and Dinesh (Amol Palekar) being part of their friend circle, among others.

Sushma and Dinesh love each other but Sushma’s father is against this marriage. The real cause for the opposition to the marriage is that Sushma is the only bread-winner for the family, her father being unemployed for months. Both of them are encouraged by Shekhar and Lekha to get registered marriage which they follow and a date is decided for the registered marriage. In the group, there is Sipra (Vidya Sinha) who has lost her husband at a very young age with a small kid to look after. Lekha encourages her to start a play school for the small children and arranges the students and a place to start the play school. She is helped by her theater friends. (I think, the characters of Sushma, Dinesh and Sipra have been introduced just to jextapose the problems which have been faced by Shekhar and Lekha).

In all these efforts and also due to change of climate from town to Mumbai, Lekha is not keeping good health. Shekhar advises her to visit his parent’s house in a small town for few days for a change which she reluctantly agrees. Earlier, she had visited the place with Shekhar after the marriage for a very short stay. This time, Lekha stays for a longer period and during the initial period, she is quite happy with open sky, greenery all around and more importantly, the easy life away from the hustle bustle of Mumbai.

Within a few days of her stay, Lekha realises that all is not well in the house. The house has been divided into two parts with one part being occupied by Shekhar’s uncle and his family. Shekhar’s house is run by his mother (Dina Pathak) and Lekha’s mother-in-law (here after I will call her as ‘matriarch’) who is the final decision-maker in the house. Her father-in-law (Arvind Deshpande) has no say in the running of the house.

Shekhar’s younger brother, Shanker who is studying for BA wants to change his spectacles as his number has changed and he is getting head-ache. But his mother is not prepared to spend money for a new spectacles. On the other hand, she is prepared to spend money for some rituals to be conducted by a swami. Lekha tries to convince the matriarch by saying that Shankar’s study will be affected but it is of no use as she thinks that Shanker wanted to change the spectacle for more fashionable frame. (This shows the misplaced priorities for spending money in a rural/semi-urban setting).

In the house, the elder daughter-in-law who has become widow is looked down by the mother-in-law. Her younger brother, Diwakar (Devendra Khandelwal) occasionally visit her widow sister in the pretext of enquiring her well-being. But the real reason for this visit is to meet Gauri (Kiran Vairale), the younger sister of Shekhar. Both like each other but the matriarch is against Gauri meeting him since he happens to be the brother of her elder daughter-in-law whom she hates. With all these problems, Lekha feels suffocated even under the vast open place and a leisure life. She thinks of returning to Mumbai.

The matriarch finally decides to get Gauri married to a widower who is almost double the age of Gauri. Lekha tries to convince the matriarch that Gauri should get married to Diwakar who not only loves Gauri, but is also educated. Again, the matriarch has her own way and fix the date for Gauri’s marriage with a widower. Lekha is frustrated. She has to stop this marriage. Since Lekha has already decided to return to Mumbai, she tells both Gauri and Diwakar to run away from the town and board the same train in which she is returning to Mumbai. While Gauri agrees, Diwakar develops cold feet and politely refuse to become the part of the escape to Mumbai with Gauri. Lekha has no option but to take Gauri with her to Mumbai to stop her forcible marriage to a aged widower. In this plan, she takes into confidence, the matriarch’s sister-in-law and her elder daughter-in-law.

In Mumbai, Sushma and Dinesh have got married and are staying in Shekhar’s house while Lekha was out of Mumbai. They are happy as their parent have reconciled to the marriage. Shekhar and Lekha offer Dinesh and Sushma to continue to stay in their house until they find a house for themselves. She consoles Gauri that they will look for a suitable bridegroom for her in Mumbai. The film ends with Lekha’s dialogues as under:

‘Hum log yahin achche hain.
Ye muthi bhar aasmaan, ye chhoti si jagah
Lekin yahaan din mein hosla to hai’

[We are happy here (in Mumbai).
A fistful of sky, a small room.
But here there is an encouragement to survive].

I liked two aspects of the film. First, the director has refrained from showing the usual quarrelsome relationship between mother-in-law (Dina Pathak) and the daughter-in-law, Lekha (Shabana Azmi). The villainous elements in mother-in-law is visible but these do not turn into conflicts as Lekha treats her mother-in-law as a product of a small town and understands her psychology. Mother-in-law on the other hand restrains herself while dealing with Lekha as she realises that Lekha is not only financially independent but she is also educated to deal with such situations.

The second aspect of the film which I like is that there is element of realism when Lekha plans the escapes of Gauri and Diwakar to get married in Mumbai by registered marriage. That Diwakar develops cold feet to this plan is in keeping with the psychology of the small town where societal pressure can make the life of his parents miserable if he runs away with a bride to be. Whether Diwakar would eventually comes to Mumbai to get married to Gauri or not has been kept open in the film with a dialogue that if Diwakar does not turn up, Lekha and her friends would arrange for a suitable bridegroom for her.

The entire film is centered around the character of Shabana Azmi with Dina Pathak getting a fairly good exposure in the film. Shekhar Kapoor has early presence in the film. But during Lekha’s visit to town, he is no whre to be seen in the film. Finally, he comes back in the frame only towards the end of the film. The performance of Kiran Vairale as Gauri is very good despite this being her maiden film as per the credit titles. Rest of the cast like Amol Palekar, Zarina Wahab, Vidya Sinha, are guest artists in the film.

This film reminded me that there was an adorable actress, Kiran Vairale who has left her mark in the films like ‘Naram Garam’ (1981), ‘Saath-Saath’ (1982), ‘Namkeen’ (1982), ‘Lorie’ (1984), ‘Saagar’ (1985) etc, suddenly vanished from the Hindi films. I checked her filmography and came to know that she has not been seen in films after 1986.

The only personal information I knew about Kiran Vairale at the time of her entry into films was that she was the daughter of Madhusudan Vairale, who was a cabinet minister in Government of Maharashtra and later a Member of Parliament of Indian National Congress from Akola. I found an interview of her, published in E-Times of India, January 28, 2017 which gave me some idea about her filmy career and why she left the films sometime in mid-1980s.

Kiran Vairale was exposed to acting for the first time in 1972 when she was in class XI at St. Anns High School, in Fort, Mumbai. Farooque Shaikh who was to direct a short play for the school, came to her class and out of of those called for audition, she was selected for the lead role in a 45-minute play, ‘Mirza Sahibaan’. After her matriculation, Kiran Vairale joined St Xavier’s College where Farooque Shaikh had studied and had formed Hindi drama/music group. She participated in inter-college dramas.

It was her association with IPTA from 1975 to 1984 which gave Kiran Vairale to brush up her acting. In IPTA, she did four plays with Farooque Shaikh, one among them was ‘Doosra Aadmi’ by Sagar Sarhadi. Later, the play was made into a film by Yashraj Films in 1977 in which she had a side role. Due to her IPTA connection, she got roles in many films during 1977-84, most of which were from top banners.

During her short tenure in Hindi films (1977-86), Kiran Vairale acted in 19 films some of which I have already mentioned above. In addition, she worked in one Kannada film ‘Pallavi Anu Pallavi’ (1983). In most of the films, she got the side roles like hero’s sister or heroine’s friend.

Sometime in the middle of 1980s, Kiran Vairale got married to Syed Fahd Asad Mumtaz, a nephew of Dilip Kumar (his sister, Taj Mumtaz’s son) and migrated to USA. Presently, Kiran Vairale (now Kiran Mumtaz) owns and runs one of the largest immigrant-based recruitment advertising agencies in New York.

Since I have also discussed Kiran Vairale in the article, I am presenting the song, ‘o shaam aayi rango mein rangi huyi’ from ‘Jeena Yahaan’ (1979), sung by Lata Mangeshkar which is picturised on Kiran Vairale. The song is written by Yogesh which is set to music by Salil Chowdhury.

It is a boat song in which Shabana Azmi is seen along with Devendra Khandelwal (Kiran Vairale’s love interest in the film) and Desh Maheshwari in the role of Kiran Vairale’s brother.

This is the second song of the film (out of 3 songs) to appear on the Blog. The video clip has got full song but sound quality is not so good while audio clip does not have 3rd antara of the song but sound quality is good.

Lyrics(Based on Video Clip)(Provided by Prakashchandra)

Ho o o shaam aayi rangon mein rangi huyi
paayal vaayal mere paanvon mein
koyi baandho laake nayi nayi
o o shaam aayi ee
rango nmein rangi huyi
paayal vaayal mere paanvon mein
koyi baandho laake nayi nayi
o shaam aayi ee
rangon mein rangi huyi

mujhe koyi nayi chunri dila do
mere liye naya kangna koyi laa do
ye soone se maathhe pe
kare cham cham kumkum ki
tum aisi koyi bindiya laga do
ho o o shaam aayi rangon mein rangi huyi

ye jaadoo kaisa hai jaanoon na
lage mujhe ye to jeewan mera sona
ye jaadoo kaisa hai jaanoon na
lage mujhe ye to jeewan mera sona
saja le tu nainon mein
dheere dheere ore manwa mere
koyi ek sapna salona
ho o shaam aayi ee
rangon mein rangi huyi

mere mann ki aasha adhoori
hogi ik din ye to kahin poori
mere mann ki aasha adhoori
hogi ik din ye to kahin poori
kabhi na main bhooloongi
sang sang tere saathi mere
beete ye jo shaam sindoori
ho o shaam aayi ee rangon mein rangi huyi
paayal vaayal mere paanvon mein
koyi baandho laake nayi nayi
ho o shaam aayi ee rangon mein rangi huyi

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 101 # Remembering Salil Chowdhury #
————————————————————————————

Today 5th September 2020 is the twenty-fifth (19 November 1922 – 5 September 1995) ‘Remembrance anniversary’ of yesteryears’ great music director and also lyricist, writer and poet Salil Chowdhary.

Salil Chowdhury has given us some of the unforgettable and even immortal songs in movies like ‘Do Bigha Zameen-1953’, ‘Naukri-1954’, ‘Jaagte Raho-1956’, ‘Madhumati-1958’, ‘Parakh-1960’, ‘Chhayaa-1961’, ‘Anand-1971’, ‘Mere Apne-1971’, ‘Rajnigandha-1974’ and many many others. There is a long list of his achievements and recognitions which very well deserved a detailed post. However today we will discuss a lesser known movie where music is composed by him.

Today’s song is from a movie ‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’.

I came across this song almost seven years back and it is lying pending since then. That time the very less information was available with me about his movie. After that I got information from HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). The movie had also become available online for some time before becoming unavailable again.

Here are the details about his movie.

‘Sabse Badaa Sukh-1972’ was directed by Hrishikesh Mukherjee for ‘Lakshmi Enterprise’ and ‘Hrishikesh Mukherjee Unit’. Saroj Bannerjee, Susheela Kamat, Nitin Mukesh and Shakeel Chandra were assistant directors. The movie was presented by Ashok Hira and Kishore Kanungo

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Nityanand Dutt and D.N. Mukherjee were his associates.

Dialogues for this movie were written by Gulzar. Additional scenes were written by Salil Chowdhary and lyrics were written by Yogesh.

Das Dhaimade was the Editor in chief for this movie whereas Subhash Gupta was the sound editor. Editing was done by Shanker Pradhan, Shreedhar Mishra, Khan Zaman Khan and Anil Pradhan. Biren Tripathy was the Dialogue director of this movie. Anil Ghosh was the associate director and controller of production.

This movie had Vijay Arora, Robi Ghosh, Meeta Faiyyaz, Naarghita, Kumud Damle, Meher Banu, Rajni Bala, Sabeena, Sunita, Tun Tun. Kali Bannerjee, Utpal Dutt, Asrani and Keshto Mukherjee. They were supported by S. N. Banerjee, Raj Verma, Bhola, Noni, Tarun Ghosh, Mukund Babu, Sudha, Sarita Devi, Shreedhar, Jagjit, Meena Rai and others.

Manna Dey, Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita had given their voice to the two songs in this movie. Music for this movie was composed by Salil Chowdhury. Kanu Ghosh and Shashikant assisted him in music.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 24.11.1972.

Today’s song is a background song played while the titles of the movie are rolling. Earlier video links were available which now seem to have become obsolete and only the audio of this song is available.

This song is sung by Manna Dey. This movie had total two songs and the other song is sung by Nitin Mukesh and Naarghita.

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about it. However, I would request knowledgeable readers to throw light on this movie and its songs.

Let us now enjoy today’s song. Lyrics are written by Yogesh and music is composed by Salil Chowdhury.

With this song ‘Sabse Badaa Suh-1972’ makes its debut on the blog.

Blog Day :

4384 Post No. : 15740

Today is 19 july 2020. It was on this day in 2008 that this blog had started.

I had observed that the starting date was perhaps pre ordained. That day in 2008 was the first day of the month of Shraawan (or saawan), which is so very appropriate for a HFM blog, seeing that a big chunk of FM is inspired by saawan related songs, viz “rain songs”, “saawan ke jhoole” songs, and many other genres of songs.

I recently made another discovery. 19 july 2008 (and also today viz 19 july 2020) happen to be the 200th day of the year ! So, the belief that some higher forces , (rather than us mortals) are driving the affairs of this blog gets validated yet again.

People may have noticed that as many as four posts appeared today before 6 AM IST, and then there was no more activity. As it happened, I was going to get busy after 6 AM today so I made sure that today, the blog birthday should have a few posts. all regulars who had sent their articles on the occasion were scheduled to appear in the morning. I too intended to post at least one article, but that was not possible till evening.

Now that I am in a position to come to the keyboard again, let me try and post at least one of my writeups today.

Sudhir Jee made an observation that four songs appeared on this day ten years ago. On first three posts on that day, there was no mention of the day being the blog birthday. it was the fourth and final post of that day that mentioned this fact. 🙂

Today, every post is about blog birthday. so we have come a long way from that day.

We are not just adding posts, we are only gathering valuable database about HFM, and invaluable tidbits, often without realising it. Some of the information shared in these pages are not available elsewhere. Not just ordinary music lovers, but even relatives of HFM personalities are visitors of this blog. For instance, children of several music directors, lyricists and actors are visitors of this blog. Even some HFM personalities have visited and left comments in the blog. There visits , comments etc have been a source of great inspirations to us.

I must also stress that the regulars of this blog, including the contributors are all very special people in their own ways. We have among our regulars some have been related to HFM in some way or the other. Then there are some, whose ancestors have been great figures in some field or the other. We even have persons whose ancestors have been founding fathers of cities ! We have published authors and columnists among us. we have organisers of HFM events, and also people who have appeared on Radio/ TV shows, are among our contributors. So, we have a galaxy of distinguished contributors among us, who create quality content for the blog which enriches not just this blog but also HFM related knowledge base.

The fact that this blog has helped bring a galaxy of stars together is something that often escapes our attention. on this occasion, I want to acknowledge, appreciate and thank this galaxy of distinguished contributors, visitors and regulars. Without their contribution and encouragement, we would not have achieved the things that we have achieved over the 12 years that this blog has been in existence.

I feel that the blog is destined to achieved many more things in the years to come.

On this occasion, I present a song discussing this “anjuman sitaaron ki”. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and chorus. Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerjee. the movie is “Rocket Tarzan”(1963). This obscure B grade movie was directed by B J Patel for Peoples Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shanti Lal, Rajan Kapoor, Babu Raje, Bhopali, Polsan, Shakila Bano etc in it.

The movie had six obscure but wondeful songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past. This is the third song, a super song, and quite an appropriate song for the occasion.

Once again, I thank one and all on the occasion of the birthday of the blog. Let us hoope and wish that this musical bandwagon will keep rolling on and on for many more years.

bana lo jahaan ko apna
ye hai zindagi ka sapna
ye mera payaam (?) hai
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

usi ke liye hai jo itna samajh le
ye zindagi zindaadili ka naam hai ae ae
anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

Zarina Wahab, born this day in 1959, turns 61 today.

My first introduction to this actress of pronounced and natural underplay, was ‘Chit Chor’ of 1976. Yes, for a brief time, the phrase used for her was ‘Chit Chor Girl’. The debut was impressive and the performance in ‘Chit Chor’ was followed up in 1977 with another superb performance in the film ‘Gharonda’.

In both films, she plays the role of the typical girl next door, who wins your heart with an understatement of her performance as the young coming of age heroine, and her first encounter with love. These two assays, the Geeta of ‘Chit Chor’ and Chhaaya of ‘Gharonda’, quite adequately define for me, the accomplished actress she is.

This song is from the 1995 film ‘Mera Damaad’, almost two decades into her career. The film had a good successful run at the box office, as a comedy of mixed up intents and identities of young hearts seeking their first love.

The film is directed by Partho Ghosh. The lead pair in the film is Zarina Wahab and Farooque Sheikh and the rest of the cast includes Utpal Dutt, Ashok Kumar, Rakesh Bedi, Rakesh Bedi, Prema Narayan, Jankidas, Bhagwan Dada, Tarique, Priyadarshini, Parvin Paul, Abha Mukherjee, Khokha Mukherjee, Brahmachari, Kukku Saigal, Jagannath Prabhu, Balraj, Master Romel Kaul, and Baby Nivedita.

The music director for the film is Salil Chaudhry, and this song is penned by Yogesh.

Wishing Zarina a very happy birthday, with greetings for good healty, peace and many more such celebrations in the coming years.

The lyrics of this song have been sent in by our dear Prakash ji.

#the Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 92 # R.D. Burman – Year 1977
———————————————–———————————————

It is another important day today for all of us today (27 june 2020). Remembering the ‘genius’ Music Director Rahul Dev Burman – ‘Pancham’ on his eighty-first birth anniversary today.

As a tribute to him I am presenting a song composed by him from the movie ‘Jeewan Mukt-1977’.

I do not know how many of our readers are aware of this movie and its’ songs. There may be many, and surely most Pancham fans are aware of the movie and its songs.

However, I became aware of this movie only six years ago when I got my copy of HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980). Since then, I was longing to share the songs from this movie. But somehow it didn’t work out, mainly because I was unable to locate the songs of this movie.

I had never listened to the songs of this movie earlier. For that matter I had never even heard the name of this movie. This movie must have sunk badly at the box office and as a result it must have ended up becoming an obscure movie of its time.

The movie had some beautiful songs in it that were created by none other than the genius music director Rahul Dev Burman.

When I listened to the songs of this movie during the preparation of this post, I liked them very much. And I hope that our readers too will find the song enjoyable.

This is a movie of 1977. 1977 is also an important year in the history of India (socio-politically). However here on the blog we will only discuss the movies and music (of Pancham) of that year.

Some of us will readily recall the blockbuster musical hit of that year i.e. ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’, which also had music by R D Burman.

Then there were other movies like ‘Kinaara’, ‘Mukti’, ‘Kitaab’, ‘Karm’ etc where the music was composed by R.D. Burman.
Then there were movies like ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, ‘Dharam Veer’, ‘Aap Ki Khaatir’, ‘Yehi Hai Zindagi’, ‘Doosra Aadmi’, ‘Apnaapan’, ‘Dulhan Wahi Jo Piyaa Man Bhaaye’, ‘Khoon Pasinaa’, ‘Swami’, ‘Anurodh’, etc etc… where the other music directors composed the music and the music of these movies too were very popular.

The song that ranked at number one of that year’s annual ‘Binaca Geetmala’ list was from the previous years’ ‘Laila Majnu’, and in 1978 it was from ‘Ankhiyon Ke Jharokhon Se’. The song ‘Kyaa huaa tera waadaa’ from ‘Ham Kisise Kam Nahin’ ranked at number three in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala’ of 1978.

None of the songs from today’s movie ‘Jeewan Mukt’ featured in the annual list of ‘Binaca Geetmala-1977’. (or 1978).

In 1977 there were as many as ten movies where R D Burman sas the music director. Details of the representation of these movies in the blog is show here :-

Sno. Title Year Passed by Censor Board Lyricist Represented on the Blog
1 Chaandi Sonaa 1977 25.03.1977 Majrooh Sultanpuri Yes
2 Chalaa Muraari Hero Banane 1977 08.11.1977 Yogesh Yes
3 Chaltaa Purzaa 1977 16.06.1977 Anand Bakshi Yes
4 Darling Darling 1977 11.05.1977 Anand Bakshi Yes
5 Ham Kisise Kam Nahin 1977 19.08.1977 Majrooh Sultanpuri Yes
6 Jeewan Mukt 1977 08.08.1977 Yogesh NO
7 Karm 1977 27.04.1977 Bharat Vyas, Rajkavi Tulsi Yes/Yippeeee’ed
8 Kinaaraa 1977 21.03.1977 Gulzar Yes/Yippeeee’ed
9 Kitaab 1977 31.12.1977 Gulzar Yes/Yippeeee’ed
10 Mukti 1977 14.02.1977 Anand Bakshi Yes/Yippeeee’ed

‘Jeewan Mukt-1977’ was directed by Sudhendu Roy for S.R. Productions, Bombay. It had Lakshmi, Parikshit Sahni, Girish Karnad, Mala Jaggi, Sudha Shivpuri, Pawan Dutt, Meena Rai, Master Gautam, Ashok Razdan, Dhanna, Asha Lata, Suresh Oberoi, Dinshaw Dazi, Shrimati Mistri and others.

As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) this movie had total four songs, all were solo songs sung by Asha Bhonsle. (however, on internet I came across a song sung by Kishore Kumar and it is uploaded as an ‘unreleased song from this movie- ‘Jeewan Mukt’, which needs to be checked and confirmed. HFGK doesn’t mention this song).

Lyricist Yogesh wrote the songs for this movie and music was composed by R.D. Burman.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 08.08.1977.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle and it is lip synced on screen by Lakshmi. Master Gautam (I guess) is the kid seen with her. Some other artists including two playing a village cuple are also seen in the picturisation.

Let us enjoy today’s song which is said to be inspired from a ‘western song’ (guesses?).

The book ‘R.D. Burman- The Man, The Music’ also mentions one other song from this movie ‘Jeewan Mukt’ where Pancham Da had taken inspiration from the music composed by a famous ‘western group’, but then that is the ‘inspiration’ for another post. Till then let us all enjoy this song and pay our tributes to our beloved Pancham Da.

With this song ‘Jeewan Mukt-1977’ makes its debut on the blog. With this song, all released movies of 1977 that had music by R D Burman find representation on the blog. 🙂

Blog Day : 4149 Post No. : 15315

Though most Hindi movies are based on native themes, often drawn from mythology, folk tales, history, contemporary day to day life etc, there have been movies based on non Indian topics as well.

Tarzan for some reason has been a very popular non Indian character that gets covered in Hindi movies quite often.

That is not all, it often gets combined with some other unrelated characters/ topics as well. For instance, we have movies that combine Tarzan with characters from enirely different locations, viz “Tarzan and Kingkong”, “Tarzan in Fairyland”, “Tarzan comes to Delhi”, “Tarzan and Captain Kishore” etc.

That is not all. Tarzan, an early 19th century character finds himself pitted against characters/ items separated in time by hundreds and even thousands of years. For instance “Tarzan and Delilah”, “”Tarzan and Hercules,” “Tarzan aur Jaadui Chiraag” etc.

1960s was a decade when Hindi B grade movie makers took particular fancy to Tarzan and made most of the above Tarzan movies. There were two Tarzan movies in 1963 and three each in 1964, 1965 and 1966, one each in 1968, 1969 and 1970. 15 Tarzan movies in one decade !

Here is a song from a Tarzan movie called “Rocket Tarzan”(1963). How Tarzan dwelling in Jungles of Africa meets American or European Rockets, only the moviemakers can tell. This movie was directed by B J Patel for Peoples Pictures, Bombay. The movie had Shanti Lal, Rajan Kapoor, Babu Raje, Bhopali, Polsan, Shakila Bano etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. One song has been covered in the past. While covering that song, Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia, provided the story of the movie. It goes like this :

Professor Anil sets up his Lab to do research on rockets, in a Jungle to keep it a secret. His daughter Mala was looking after him. One day Mala is saved from a Tiger by the king of the Jungle Tarzan and as a duty, she immediately falls in his love. One day the king and queen of the jungle tribe come to meet the professor. The king has a tumour in his neck. The Professor treats him successfully and the king promises him full cooperation and protection. This is, however not liked by the King’s advisor Niranjan.

After few days, Niranjan kidnaps Mala and blackmails the professor to give him the secret formula to make such rockets which will take the man to the Moon. Tarzan arrives and in a fight rescues Mala.

Niranjan is very angry and he puts a fire to the Professor’s laboratory and in that fire all his secret formulae and the Rocket prototype is burnt down. Tarzan throws Niranjan into the same fire.

The professor decides to return to the City, but Mala chooses to remain with Tarzan in the Jungle.(Jungle mein mangal).

Here is another song from “Rocket Tarzan”(1963). The song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and chorus. Yogesh is the lyricist. Music is composed by Robin Bannerji.

This song is a catchy and hummable song. One would imagine this to be a club dance song, rather than a song from a Tarzan movie. But that is how it is.

Only the audio of the song is available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Hum tumko mana rahe hain (Rocket Tarzan)(1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Robin Bannerji
Chorus

Lyrics

lalalala
lala
lalalala

hum tumko mana rahe hain
tum hamko mana rahe ho
chhodo bhi
chhodo bhi zaalim
hamko kyun aazma rahe ho
hum tumko mana rahe hain

ye bekaraar dil hi
meri to zindagi hai
manzil mujhe milegi
dil ko mere yaqeen hai
?? hoga ik din ye sab zamaana
hum tumko mana rahe hain
tum hamko mana rahe ho
chhodo bhi
chhodo bhi zaalim
hamko kyun aazma rahe ho
hum tumko mana rahe hain

kab tak juda rahenge
yoon manzilon se rahe
kab tak rahengi tanha
yoon aarzu ki baahen
raahon ki mushkilon ko
ik din hai sar jhukaana

hum tumko mana rahe hain
tum hamko mana rahe ho
chhodo bhi
chhodo bhi jalim hamko kyun aazma rahe ho
hum tumko mana rahe hain
