THE BEST RAAGA BASED SONGS IN HINDI MOVIES – RAAGA BHIMPALASI – PART II

As you are already aware, these blogs are being recreated from the posts on my Facebook page Lyrical wherein I started with this theme of giving you the best raaga based songs in Hindi movies on the 8th of Aug 2015. Presently, I am on my 18th Raaga: Raag Asavari. I have already given you blogs on Raaga Bhairavi (Part I, II and III), Yaman or Kalyan (Part I, II and III), Jhinjhoti (Part I, II) and Darbari Kanada (Part I, II) and Bhimpalasi (Part I); which make only five of the eighteen Raagas. This means that I am well behind schedule.

We had started with our fifth Raag: Raag Bhimpalasi many weeks back when I gave you Raag Bhimpalasi Part I. Raag Bhimpalasi is an afternoon raaga, sung from late afternoon to sunset, Bhimpalasi is poignant and passionate, filled with yearning. The raga is reputed to reduce tension and short temper.

Now look at the cover picture depicting the song Khilate hain gul yahan khilake bikharane ko. You get the yearning, the longing, the passion and the poignancy. I have always given you, in the cover pictures of the Raagas, what I feel is the song that comes nearest to the description of the Raaga.

The Raaga is in Thaat Kafi. The other Raagas in Thaat Kafi are Pilu, Kafi and Bageshri. Raag Bhimpalasi is sung in Bhakati, Shringar and Vir ras.

So far, in Part I, I have given you the following songs:

  1. Khilte hain gul yahan – SD Burman
  2. Aa neele gagan tale – Shankar Jaikishen
  3. Naino mein badra chhaye – Madan Mohan
  4. Afsana likh rahi hoon – Naushad Ali
  5. Maine chand sitaaron ki – N Dutta
  6. Kuchh dil ne kaha – Hemant Kumar
  7. Mere mann ka bawra panchhi – C Ramchandra

  9. Tu kahan yeh bata – SD Burman
  10. Chalo ik baar phir se – Ravi
  11. Koi nahin hai phir bhi na mukhako – Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lets proceed further:

Song #13 Panthi hoon main us path ka…

Twelve directors so far who have composed in Raag Bhimpalasi: SD Burman, Shankar Jaikishen, Madan Mohan, N Dutta, Naushad, Hemant Kumar, C Ramchandra, OP Nayyar, SD Burman, Ravi, Laxmikant Pyarelal and Ravindra Jain.

Lets start with the thirteenth: Kishore Kumar as a composer. This is from the 1971 movie Door Ka Raahi which has Kishore Kumar all the way: as hero, as music director, as singer, as producer, director and story-writer. I was so fascinated by the fact that when given a chance, he didn’t opt to make a commercial movie but the movie that would give expression to his inner voice, that I saw it recently on my computer.

Lyrics are by A Irshad and the song describes the idea behind the entire movie.

Song #14 Ae ri main to prem deewani….

Lets go on with our fourteenth music director composing in Raag Bhimpalasi: Roshan. I have taken this song from the 1952 movie Naubahar starring Nalini Jaywant and Ashok Kumar. It is a Meerabai bhajan sung by Lata Mangeshkar, the lyrics having been touched by Shailendra.

Song #15 Ae ajnabee tu bhi kabhi awaaz de kahin se….

I am tempted to give you, at this stage, a favourite song of mine from a contemporary music director – the best of the lot and Oscar winner – AR Rehman. The name of this 1998 movie is Dil Se starring Shah Rukh Khan and Moinasha Koirala. The singer is Udit Narayan.

Lets go on with the sixteenth. I have chosen the great Bhupen Hazarika composing for the 1993 movie Rupaali, the title having been taken from Rajasthan’s traditional women weepers or mourners who can be hired to weep or mourn on the death of a person.

This great song has Gulzar‘s lyrics and has been sung by the two Mangeshkar sisters: Asha and Lata together with Bhupen himself.

Song #17 Tu mile dil khile….

Our seventeenth music director composing in Raag Bhimpalasi is MM Kreem. I remember how this song caught our imagination 20 years back, when in 1995, the movie Criminal was released starring the south Indian star Nagarjuna.

Indeevar penned the lyrics and the song was sung so gently by Alka Yagnik and Kumar Sanu.

Song #18 Dil ke tukde tukde kar ke….

Our eighteenth music director composing in Raag Bhimpalasi is Usha Khanna in a movie produced and directed by Jugal Kishore. I am talking about the 1978 movie Dada starring Vinod Mehra and Bindiya Goswami.

Why should I select this song amongst the best? It is not just because in the garden where this has been shot, as soon as the mukhada starts, you see my favourite sunflowers! The song really became very popular.

Lyrics are by Ravindra Jain and the singer is Yesudas.

Song #19 Main gareebon ka dil, main machalati sabaa.N….

We have had eighteen directors so far who have composed in Raag Bhimpalasi: SD Burman, Shankar Jaikishen, Madan Mohan, N Dutta, Naushad, Hemant Kumar, C Ramchandra, OP Nayyar, SD Burman, Ravi, Laxmikant Pyarelal, Ravindra Jain, Kishore Kumar, Roshan, AR Rehman, Bhupen Hazarika, MM Kreem and Usha Khanna.

Lets take our nineteenth music director: Sardar Malik. This is from the 1955 movie Aab-e-Hayat starring Premnath and Shashikala. Lyrics are by Hasrat Jaipuri and the singer is Hemant Kumar.

Song #20 Yeh na thi hamaari kismat…..

Our 20th composer in Raag Bhimpalasi is Khaiyyam. He composed Mirza Ghalib‘s famous ghazal in this Raag and the Malika-e-Tarunnam Begum Akhtar sang it.

Song #21 Zindagi mein to sabhi pyaar kiya karte hain…

The last music director that we have is the singer Mehdi Hassan himself singing my most favourite ghazal. It is a Qatel Shifai ghazal. Although it wasn’t sung in a Hindi movie, I am still giving it as a bonus.

Song #22 Jabase balam ghar aaye

In the last seven days of our listening to Hindi songs based on Raag Bhimpalasi, we listened to the compositions of 21 different music directors.

Tonight, we take the last three songs composed in this Raag before we take on our next Raag.

The first won is from the 1951 Raj Kapoor movie Aawara, now listed by Time magazine amongst Top 100 movies of all times. As usual lyrics are by Hasrat Jaipuri, music composed by Shankar Jaikishen, and Lata Mangeshkar singing for Nargis.

Song #23 Khoya khoya chand khula aasmaan….

The second song composed in Raag Bhimpalasi, I have taken from the 1960 movie Kaala Bazaar starring Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman. Lyrics were penned by Shailendra and the singer was Mohammad Rafi.

Of course, being a Dev Anand movie, the music was composed by SD Burman.

Song #24 Hawaaon pe likh do….

The last song that I am giving you that has been composed in Raag Bhimpalasi is by my favourite singer-composer Hemant Kumar.

The song has three best: Hemant as the composer, Gulzar as the lyricist and Kishore Kumar as the singer. The name of this 1968 movie is Do Dooni Char.

Song #25 Aaj purani raahon se….

This is a famous number from the 1968 movie Aadmi that was noted for exquisite acting by Dilip Kumar after he is paralysed in an accident and observes his beloved Waheeda Rehman having an affair with his friend Manoj Kumar. He has murderous tendencies at this stage which are reminiscent of his childhood when his friend touches his doll in the memory of his love Meena.

Shakeel Badayuni‘s lyrics are extremely meaningful and the composition by Naushad is superb. Mohammad Rafi has sung this with great passion.

Song #26 Naghma O sher ki saugaat kise pesh karun….

There are movies that are made around a single song. There is Mere Mehboob, Barsaat Ki Raat and then there is Ghazal. This song occurs thrice in the 1964 movie Ghazal on three different versions. In the first instance this ghazal is sung by Lata Mangeshkar for Naaz Ara Begum (Meena Kumari)in a private gathering of women freinds. However, Ejaz (Sunil Dutt), who is passing by her house, listens to it and falls in love with her voice and her. He himself sings the second version of it: Ishq ki garmiyen jazbaat kise pesh karun at her father Nawab Bakar Ali Khan’s (Prithviraj) mushaira and she is amused that he stole her ghazal. Finally, in the movie, she loses her voice and doesn’t want that Ejaz should marry her and spoil his life. So she agrees to marry the ever-greedy Akhtar Nawab (Rehman), who asks Ejaz to sing a sehra at their wedding and Ejaz sings: Rang aur noor ki baraat kise pesh karun. Lo and behold, when Mohammad Rafi gets to the last high-pitched Kise pesh karun, she gets her voice back and they (she and Ejaz).

It is that kind of powerful song; one of the best penned by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed by Madan Mohan.

Song #27 Ye zindagi usi ki hai…

This is from the 1953 movie Anarkali directed by Nandlal Jaswantlal, much before K Arif‘s magnum-opus Mughal-e-Azam, the most expensive movie until then.

This song was sung by Lata Mangeshkar for Beena Roy as Anarkali and is very poignant. She has saved the life of her lover Prince Salim (played by Pradeep Kumar) by agreeing to be paved in a brick wall alive. And all because they (Prince Salim and her) fell in love.

We must appreciate Rajinder Krishan, the lyricist for coming up with these lyrics that tell us that you don’t require anything in life if you have love. And, indeed, to give up one’s life in love is gaining the world. C Ramchandra’s composition is flawless and Lata Mangeshkar’s singing is great.

Song #28 Ye khaamoshiyan ye tanhaayiyan…

This is our last song in the Best Songs Based On Raag Bhimpalasi.It is from the 1963 movie Yeh Raaste Hain Pyaar Ke that was based (though denied in the movie) on the infamous Commander Kawas Nanavati (an Indian Navy officer) case. In the actual story, Nanawati’s most beautiful wife Sylvia had an affair with Prem Bhagwandas Ahuja, a friend of Nanavati. They used to be merry making when Nanavati went out sailing for long durations. When Nanavati returned and caught them red-handed, he shot dead his frend Ahuja. When the trial progressed, there was enormous public sympathy for Nanavati.

In the movie, Sunil Dutt acted as a commercial pilot charge with killing his wife – the beautiful Leela Naidu‘s – lover.

This song was sung by Mohammad Rafi and Asha Bhosle for Sunil Dutt and Leela Naidu during their happy days whilst holidaying in Kashmir. Rajinder Krishan’s lyrics and Ravi’s composition are as exquisite as the Kashmir valley.
