First I want to thank the admins who had made a special forum for the lyricists.
Indeevar is my favorite lyricist. I got no words 2 describe his way of writing poetry, may it be pop, romantic, or sad songs. this man was good!

Indeevar


Birthplace: Jhansi, Madhya Pradesh
Profession: Poet, Bollywood Film song Lyricists

The man who penned the title track for the Rajesh Khanna – Sharmila Tagor hit, ‘Safar’, ‘Zindagi ka safar, Hai yeh kaisa safar Koi samjha nahi … Koi jaana nahi …’ is Indeevar. Unluckily enough, Indeevar didn’t get many opportunities like this to pen down these quality songs. His career span is spread over four decades with a quantum of chartbusters only. The very reason could be his compromise on quality on work for his survival in this Indian Music Industry.

Born in Jhansi, Madhya Pradesh as Shyamalal Bahu Rai, he came to the city of dreams, Mumbai with the clear intention of being a lyricist. He got his first assignment for the movie called ‘Double Face’ (1946). To be in the business, he took every assignments and grabbed every film that came his way and didn’t mind working for ‘B’ and ‘C’ grade projects. He got his first big break in the form of ‘Malhaar’ (1951). ‘Bade Armaan Se Rakha Hai Balam Teri Kasam’, a popular composition that retains a refreshing feel even today. But even this song couldn't ensure instant success.

Indevaar clicked

He finally shot into the big league with Babubhai Mistry's musical extravaganza, Parasmani (1963), which also launched the career of music duo Laxmikant-Pyarelal. In subsequent years, Indeevar forged a strong bond with a select set of filmmakers and music directors, that resulted in a repertoire of music that was eminently hummable, subtly evocative and definitely unforgettable.

One of his most creative and fruitful alliances was with Manoj Kumar, who first signed him on for Upkar (1967). Indeevar and Kalyanji-Anandji injected the film with a fine blend of soulful emotion and patriotic euphoria through songs like ‘Kasme Vaade Pyaar Wafa’. Equally powerful were compositions like ‘Dulhan Chali, O Pehen Chali’ and ‘Koi Jab Tumhara Hriday Tod De’ from Purab Aur Paschim (1970). Earlier, in 1968, he had culled an awesome collection of soulful lyrics for Govind Saraiya's Saraswati Chandra.

Together with his long-standing partners, Kalyanji-Anandji he produced unforgettable numbers such as ‘Chhod De Saari Duniya Kisi Ke Liye’, ‘Chandan Sa Badan’ and ‘Main To Bhool Chali Babul Ka Des’.

Indevaar Mera Naam

In direct contrast to this classic score, the trio set an upbeat mood for Vijay Anand's musical hit, Johny Mera Naam (1970) with zany songs like ‘Nafrat Karne Walon Ke’ and ‘Pal Bhar Ke Liye Koi Hame Pyaar Kar Le’ and ‘O, O Mere Raja’.

Two of Indeevar's best-remembered films were made the same year. While Manmohan Desai's Sachcha Jhootha produced ‘Meri Pyaari Beheniya Banegi Dulhaniya’, which has since become a permanent fixture in every wedding band, Asit Sen's Safar had Indeevar's poetic juices churning out wonders like ‘Jeevan Se Bhari Teri Aankhen’ and ‘Jo Tumko Ho Pasand’. Throughout the 1970s, his winning combination with Kalyanji-Anandji grew stronger and continued all the way up to Qurbani's' (1980) ‘Hum Tumhe Chaahte Hain Aise’.

With the arrival of the disco beat and the Bhappi Lahiri wave, Indeevar put poetry on the backburner and stood up to the task of delivering mindless lyrics. There was a preset combination for all these Southern-style 'pots-n-pans' hits: Jeetendra, Sridevi, Jaya Pradha, Bhappi Lahiri and Indeevar. All the way from Himmatwalas' (1983) ‘Nainon Mein Sapna’ to Tohfa's nonsensical title song, Indeevar willfully accepted and adapted to the changing trends in film music.

All Time Hits of Indeevar
Song - Track Movie
Tum Mile Dil Khile Criminal
Yeh Teri Aankhen Jhuki Jhuki Fareb
Jab Koi Baat Bigad Jaye Jurm
Jati hoon mein Karan Arjun
Laila O Laila Qurbani
Kya Dekhte hoo Qurbani
Aap Jaisa Koi Qurbani
Kya Khoob Lagti Ho Dharmatma

Towards the end of his career, he notched up a few hits with actor-turned-filmmaker Rakesh Roshan such as Karan Arjun (1995) and Koyla (1997). But even as he was trying to redeem himself as a poet, Indeevar passed away on February 27, 1999, leaving behind his words :

"Zindagi Ko Bahut Pyaar Hamne Kiya
Maut Se Bhi Mohabbat Nibhaaenge Ham
Rote Rote Zamaane Mein Aaye Magar
Hanste Hanste Zamaane Se Jaaenge Ham"

Sapna Mukerjee, who sang that im- mensely popular number
'Pyar do pyar lo'in the film 'Janbaaz' (1986), is out to prove it's no flash in the pan; her very first pop album 'Zara Ruk Jana' should bear testimony. She is especially grateful to lyricist Indivar for putting in a special effort for her. Now that she is confident that her singing career is finally taking shape, she would like people to become acqua.
