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.


Song-Anjuman sitaaron ki (Rocket Tarzan)(1963) Singer-Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Robin Bannerjee
Chorus

Lyrics

anjuman sitaaron ki
ye mehfil bahaaron ki

anjuman sitaaron ki

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

ye uska jahaaaan hai
jo khud ek tohfa hai
ghamon se jo takraate hain
wahi manzilen paate hain
ye baaten ?? hain
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

ye saara zamaanaa

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

3 Chaltaa Purzaa 1977 16.06.1977 Anand Bakshi Yes

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

A career that almost wasn’t at one time. His father, himself at the head of a famous film production company, did not want his own son to be associated with films and the film world. Maybe a very well intentioned direction to his offspring, knowing all the glittering and the sordid ins and outs of the industry. But then, destiny has its own will and its own ways to propel individuals in particular directions.

We are celebrating 95th anniversary of birth of one of the maestros of melody in the world of Hindi film music. Madan Mohan was just 51 when he left us in 1975. The world of film music is so much more richer that he was here and composed so many memorable ghazals and songs – from 1951 to 1975. The world of music is also so much more poorer, because he left us so young. One can never say with certainty about what could have been. But yes, one would surely feel – had he lived longer. . .

Way back in 1947-48, it was not that the young Madan was completely cut off from the film world. Being the son of Rai Bahadur Chunni Lal Kohli, one of the partners at the Filmistan studios, he had a very firsthand exposure to and familiarity with the exciting work that went on in a film studio. He was in any case, musically inclined, very inclined, since his childhood. A very less known piece of anecdotal history was recently discussed at our group get together in Delhi.

His first foray into the world of music actually is as a singer. Ghulam Haider Sb had recorded a duet in the voices Madan Mohan and Lata Mangeshkar, for the iconic film ‘Shaheed’ (1948). It was a children’s song, which was supposed to be picturized on the lead pair, when they were children (in the storyline). The song was recorded and made ready for filming. Before it could be put on the sets, Rai Bahadur Sb got a wind of it, and he prevailed upon Sashadhar Mukherji, who controlled the film production side of the company, to have that song deleted from the storyline. Sadly enough, his writ prevailed, and the song was taken off the film, as well as from the recorded tapes. No recording of this said duet song is available.

Our own Bakhshi ji, in one of his meetings with Sanjeev Kohli, son of Madan Mohan ji, had enquired about this episode and the fate of this very important recording. Sanjeev Kohli confirmed the episode, but also added with regret that even he has not been able to trace out this rare recording. Sanjeev has a lot of rare items available on tape that are connected with his father’s work, but this particular duet he could never trace.

Today, we are introducing a film that probably is the last film to be released, for which music was actively composed by Madan Mohan Sb. The film ‘Veer Zaara’ of 2004 does not count, in the sense that the music for that film has been adapted and arranged using some of the unused melodies that were created by Madan Mohan. The film ‘Chaalbaaz’ was initiated in 1974, while he was still alive, but due to whatever reasons, it could be released only in 1980.

After the release of ‘Mausam’ in 1975, and his passing away in the same year, the following films that carry music by him, got released in later years.

  • ‘Laila Majnu’ (1976)
  • ‘Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine’ (1976)
  • ‘Saahib Bahadur’ (1977)
  • ‘Inspector Eagle’ (1978)
  • ‘Jalan’ (1978)
  • ‘Chaalbaaz’ (1980)

So there is a continued stream of his work getting released, for the five years immediately after his passing away. This would be a very interesting analysis to review his work post 1975. ‘Laila Majnu’, the Rishi Kapoor – Ranjeeta Thakur starrer, is of course well known for its songs. It would be an appealing exercise.

Another very interesting thing about the song being presented today is that the singing voices are of Amit Kumar and Asha Bhosle. In an interview (available on YouTube here), Amit Kumar has stated that Madan Mohan was one of the first two music directors who called upon him to sing for them (the other being the duo of Sapan Jagmohan), outside of his singing under the direction of his father, Kishore Kumar. This song is probably Amit Kumar’s first song to be recorded by a music director other than his father.

The film is produced under the banner of Ravi Films, Bombay and is directed by Hari Mehra. The star cast is listed as Deepak Khanna, Jaya Kaushalya, Nadira, Anjana, Imtiaz, Kamal Kapoor, Heeralal, V Gopal, Leela Mishra, Hani Chaya, Atam Prakash, Master Nitin, David, Abhi Bhattacharya, Raj Mehra, and Jairaj. The four songs in this film are written by Yogesh and music, of course, by Madan Mohan.

Recorded sometimes in 1974, but eventually released in the film in 1980, the song is an interesting and somewhat unusual composition. Reading the lyrics, it feels as if the stanzas are almost in free form, and yet the tune that ties them together is very attractive.

The only song that Amit Kumar has sung for Madan Mohan. Listen and enjoy.

Blog Day :

3990 Post No. : 15083

I have so many things to write about that sometimes they (those things crowding my thoughts) don’t let me sleep at night. Wish I had the habit of writing the diary. . . those “dear diary“, outpourings would have helped as a sounding board, more effectively than this blog.

Once upon a time I did start a daily diary, but that did not develop to the level of habit. Then many years ago a colleague advised in all seriousness that I should write down the daily thoughts, clearly impressed with the way I was able to warm to any topic and give a one minute lecture to an assorted audience or whoever was around me. I wasn’t really enamoured by that particular lady and I have never used her as a sounding board or even a ‘complaint register’. I tried to avoid talking about much of anything with her or say only as much as necessary, but she has a knack of introducing topics into conversation and getting people to open up.

I am not too choosy about whom I befriend, but if I develop a dislike of someone, then it gets fixed in my attitude for all times. I have tried very hard to get rid of this fallacy, and try to give second, third chances to people for redeeming themselves. I do this sort of exercise of finding excuses for people, whom I consider my friends, whenever they don’t behave as expected, on regular basis. This positivity of trying to always look at the brighter side, is good within a limit.

Till recently, I used to get very irritated with my parents same habit. So much so that I wrote in one of the posts, that my Mom looks at all things with her colour tinted glasses or ‘rangeen chashma’. This way she can see others in whichever colour she wants. Unn ko duniya bahut rangeen dikhaayi deti hai. In the sense that they live by the maxim that “hum achche to duniya achchi”.

I know the colleague who advised me to write down the thoughts etc., meant well. But I am unable to warm towards her till date, despite her being very close to a very close friend. With her natural ability and curiosity I suspect that she is able to gather all the information. Good for her, if she is happy then I don’t mind. We do meet occasionally as colleagues and also in common friend circles, but maybe I will be able to think of her also as a friend in future.

This lady also had some more well meaning advice to offer, on the topic of improving my daughter s complexion. This was many years ago. I was able to take in that advice from one ear, and throw it out of the other. Really she was simpleton, like my own mother and others. I hope that by now she has learnt differently.

Last week , Sudhir sir posted the song “Hum Kaale Hain To Kya Hua Dilwaale Hain”, in the repeat songs series. Some of the comments in the ‘Gumnaam’ song posts asked to know the meaning of those words of the mukhda. “Hum Kaale Hain To Kya Hua Dilwaale Hain” expresses an appeal against a deep rooted malice/prejudice in the society, which is blatant in the belief that only white is beautiful and black is not. Obviously the same malice is still prevalent if one goes by the no. of products available in the market for skin fairness. Nothing wrong if people want to make their skin fairer by these products, but the fact remains, this improvement or whatever, will only be skin deep. Nothing to do with core of the soul inside the skin. Food for thought.

Here is a song from the film ‘Minoo’ (1977), dealing with the same contrast of gora and kaala. The ‘Gumnaam’ song, took a funny route and this song in the voice of Antara Chaudhary is riding on a child’s innocence and a black goat named Kaali. Salil Chaudhari is the music director, and the lyrics are written by Yogesh. There was also a popular song in this film “Teri Galiyon Mein Hum Aaye”, which is already posted.

Today’s song used to play a lot on the radio when the movie was new. My younger brother was born in 1976, and my elder sister used to sing this carrying our baby brother along.

Oh. . . there are many such stories and happenings, some related and others not related to film songs. I just hope I am able to pen them down and share with all my fellow bloggers and fans of Hindi Film music.

# The Special Voices of the Decade (1971-1980) – 6 # Yesudas #
———————————————–———————————–——————

I recall listening to a song frequently on radio when I was around seventh or eight years old. The voice was very attractive and it had something special which captivated my young mind then.
There was one Mr. Abu who held from Kerala and was my Father’s friend (may be because of their drinking habits 🙂 residing in the same colony). He used to praise this new Singer a lot and liked his songs very much. My Father had even started learning ‘Malayalam’ from him and he had started learning how to write ‘Malayalam’ words too 🙂 in register.

As years passed and we were getting more and more memorable songs from this Singer though the quantity was not that much as compared to the other established singers in HFM.

Still, the songs coming from his voice were gaining popularity as well as it were creating a special place in the hearts of people, as the movies he was singing in were also coming from directors from special genre who were making off-beat movies then in the era already dominated by multi-starrer movies.

Nevertheless, the songs were adding to the list of ‘all time memorable songs’ and ‘nostalgia’ for peoples like me …

Today this singer turns to seventy-nine. He was born on in kerala.

I will not go into his biography in details because it has been covered in two of earlier posts on the blog.

Instead I will give below the name of the movies he sings in from 1971 since his debut in an ‘un-released’ Hindi movie, but compiled up to 1980 only, since I have the Geet Kosh for this period available with me.

Though our today’s Singer keep singing till recently in Hindi movies. But if we come to his statistics Hindi movies, we will not be able to judge his extra-ordinary talent and the ‘divine’ presence he has left by singing nearly fifty thousand songs in many national and international languages in his career spanning fifty years!!

He has been honoured with many national awards in singing as well as been conferred upon with our national civilian awards too and the list of awards is so BIG that one can only imagine his extra ordinary contribution to music as well as the society in turn…

I think, one who has grown up in the years of seventies can never ever forget this voice and those beautiful lovely songs …

Let us now start my journey through his songs …

Or let me remind you of this non-filmy song first … ‘teesta nadi si tu chanchalaa, main bhi hoon bachpan se manchalaa’

Our today’s singer is the male voice in this song (though the other voice i.e. the female voice too is ‘nostalgic’ for me … 

‘Gori teraa gaaon badaa pyaara’ – it was ruling the charts in 1976 and even after forty two years it is the same, even the new generation likes it when they get to listened to it..
But my favorite at that time was the other one from the same movie ‘Aaj se pehle ae aaj se jyadaa’ .

‘Jaaneman jaaneman tere do nayan’ from ‘Chhotisi Baat-1975’ had already stolen people’s hearts and their eyes open to read and learn more about this male voice in this song …

Two years later he was in a rebellious still melodious mood when he sings ‘Kitaabon mein chhaptein hain chaahat ke kisse’

Then who will ever forget ‘sunayna sunayna’ .

The same year he was praising his beloved with ‘chaand jaise mukhde pe’.

However, the one close to my heart and growing every time for all these years is ‘tere bina soona more man ka mandir aa re aa re aa’

A year before in 1978 his ‘dil ke tukde tukde kar ke muskuraa ke chal diye’, was also keep us mesmerised (but I was not liking much then, till I became a fully grown up adult 🙂 )

And as the years passed this list also keep adding on and on …

‘ka karu sajni ee’
‘kahaan se aaye badraa’
‘madhuban Khushboo deta hai’
‘maana ho tum behad haseen’

From the early eighties I like;

‘beeti huyi raat ki sunaati hai kahaani’

‘dheere dheere subah huyi’

I can keep listing many many of his favourites of mine but I have to stop …
And as I was browsing his filmography, I was reminded of this lovely number … just to refresh the memories of yours too;

‘jeewan path pe ek rath ke do pahiye ban chalte jaayen’

I cannot stop without mentioning these two;

‘Shyaam rang ranga re’
And
‘Shadaj ne paaya ye vardaan’

(in HFGK Vol V I could not find the name of this UR movie ‘Tansen’ or maybe I have missed it…)

Then I remember I had specially brought his ‘non-filmy’ album ‘Sitaaron mein tu hi’ in 2000-2001 (when I was in Bareilly. I do not have cassette with me to mention more about it here)

But I have to stop here and presenting this article in this series a little differently I will leave you with the list of movies he sung from 1971 to 1980;

Kattassery Joseph Yesudas” or Yesudas as we fondly know him …
(born on 10th January’ 1940)

Bas naam hi kaafi hai!!! Is naam ke ‘parimandal’ mein hi ‘swarg’ hai …

“Pyaare panchhi baahon mein
Gaati koyal raahon mein
Dharti pe yahi to khushi hai
Apni duniya mein aansoo bhi nahin hai”

***

‘Safed Jhoothh’ was directed by Basu Chatterjee for ‘Matrichhaaya, Bombay’. (this was the first movie by ‘Matrichhaaya’). Basu Chatterjee also wrote the Screenplay and dialogues of this movie.
It was presented by Raj Rajpal. It was produced by Asim Kumar.

It had Ashok Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Mitthu Mukherji, Deven Verma, Vidya Sinha, Manik Dutt, Abu Shivani, Amol Sen, Khalid Roy, Devraj Sinha, Prabir Roy, Somnath Pardesi, Pradeep Mukherji, Milan Mukherji, Vinay Chhibbar, Arup Ganguly, Umesh Kaalbag and many others.

This movie introduced new discovery Renuka.
Pradeep Kumar and Amol Palekar makes a guest appearance in this movie.

Story of this movie was written by Samresh Basu. Editing of this movie was done by V.N. Mayekar.

Music of this film was composed by Shyamal Mitra. And all the four songs in this movie were penned by lyricist Yogesh.
Asha Bhonsle, Shyamal Mitra and Yesudas had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Today’s song is sung by Yesudas and the movie ‘Safed Jhoothh’ is making a debut on this blog with this lovely song …

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 07.06.1977.

Let us enjoy this song wishing Yesudas ji a very very happy birthday (albeit a day later) and a healthy and peaceful life ahead …

Lyrics for this song were sent by Peevesie’s Mom ji and I remember many times in her comments she mentions that ‘how the die-hard fans’ can forget an anniversary of their beloved actor/actress or Singer, so … yes Yesudas fans can never forget this nostalgic gem 😊

Thank you, Peevesie’s Mom ji!!!

Going by the association of Yesudas with the movies of Basu Chatterjee, I think, this song perfectly fits for this presentation here …

(And I must thank both of our editors who patiently waited for my sending of this article to them. It took time for me to compile the filmography going through each page of HFGK except the appendices and corrigendum. I cannot claim that the list given by me is exhaustive and corrections/suggestions are most welcome.

‘Zid na karo’ aisa khayaal to aaya, but since I had planned that for this article on Yesudas ji I will at least try to give the filmography of his songs from 1971 to 1980, so I have tried my best…)

(note – I have noted the lyrics as per the movie version + audio version)

Song-Neele ambar ke taley (Safed Jhhooothh)(1977)Singer-Yesudas, Lyrics-Yogesh, MD-Shyamal Mitra

Lyrics(Provided by Peevesie’s Mom)

Neele ambar ke taley ae
Do yahaan saathi miley ae
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley ae
Do yahaan saathi miley ae
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

Har ghadi din rainaa aa aa
Chain ab aaye naa
Man kahe mera saathi ee ee
Ab kahin jaaye naa
Ye milan mein khoyi
Ab naa shaam dhaley ae ae ae ae
Neele ambar ke taley ae
do yahaan saathhi miley
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

Zindagi mein aise ae ae ae
Din kabhi aate hain
Rasmon ke bandhan mein ae ae
Meet bandh jaate hain
Phir mehak uthhte hain
Tan ke phool khile ae ae ae
Neele ambar ke taley ae
Do yahaan saathi miley ae
Chhalke chhalke armaan dil ke
Lekar basaane ae ghar chaley
Neele ambar ke taley

नीले अम्बर के तले ए
दो यहाँ साथी मिले ए
छलके छलके अरमान दिल के
लेकर बसाने घर चले
नीले अम्बर के तले ए
दो यहाँ साथी मिले ए
छलके छलके अरमान दिल के
लेकर बसाने घर चले
नीले अम्बर के तले

हर घडी दिन रैना आ आ
चैन अब आये ना
मन कहे मेरा साथी ई ई
अब कहीं जाए ना
ये मिलन में खोयी ई
अब ना शाम ढले ए ए ए
नीले अम्बर के तले ए
दो यहाँ साथी मिले ए
छलके छलके अरमान दिल के
लेकर बसाने घर चले
नीले अम्बर के तले

ज़िन्दगी में ऐसे ए ए ए
दिन कभी आते हैं
रस्मों के बंधन में ए ए
मीत बंध जाते हैं
फिर महक उठते हैं
तन के फूल खिले ए ए ए
नीले अम्बर के तले ए
दो यहाँ साथी मिले ए
छलके छलके अरमान दिल के
लेकर बसाने घर चले
नीले अम्बर के तले ए
