atul's bollywood song a day- with full lyrics

Archive for March 2012


When one looks at the calender of Hindi movie music, one finds that almost every day of the year is important in one respect or the other. Today (31st march) for instance is the day when Meena Kumari expired exactly 40 years ago. I was a school kid at that time and we school kids, on hearing this news opined that “Paakeeza”, the much awaited movie of Meena Kumari would benefit from her death. And the judgement of us pre teen kids turned out to be accurate. :) What Prophetic kids we were those days! :)

The film songs of Mukesh do not even number 800, with the current research that is available, but it is still a great treasure. The voice behind these songs, this person, carries a link back into the soul itself – such is the power and the fascination in this voice. It would be a very tough job, to find a Mukesh song that one could say “naah, not worth the listen”. What maybe would seem lacking in numbers is more than made up by simply the quality of sound and the eminence of rendering.

This song, I remember from many years ago, having heard it on the radio and then in collections of Talat Mehmood. Just browsing through the YouTube, I discovered this song again after a long time, and then an added bonus too. This song is also sung by Asha Bhosle in the same film.

I have not been able to discuss songs at the rate that I would have liked. Hopefully I will be able to resume my normal rate of discussing songs within a couple days or so.

There is one day of the year that most of us Indian’s are not very happy about, and that date is today, 31st March, when we need to make sure we have filed our tax returns and submitted it. For some reason, you find every one in India very busy during the month of March, as they are busy collecting documents and filing their taxes. Coming to think of it, even the IPL waits for this March madness to complete before it starts on the 4th of Apr :).

I was not aware of the film MERA SALAAM (1957) until few days back when I came across while searching for some songs on a website. This was a period film produced under the banner of Sushil Pictures and directed by Harbans. Bharat Bhushan and Bina Rai were in the lead roles with Veena, K N Singh, Gope, Durga Khote, Nishi, Cuckoo in supporting roles. The film had some lovely songs which were written by Sheven Rizvi and set to music by Hafeez Khan. Some of the song’s orchestration appear to be somewhat different than what is normally heard in the songs of that period. For example, the song ‘husn kehte hain mujhe’ probably depicting a mushaira competition between Bharat Bhushan and Bina Rai is rendered without the use of any musical instrument. Then, it has a nasheed ( Islamic devotional song) ‘madinewale se mera salam keh dena’ sung by Mohammed Rafi, Bande Hasan and others, the composition of which, in my view comes close to the qawwali style.

In the early 70s Bangalore was heaven on earth. It was a city you could walk around in, full of gardens and broad sidewalks. If you were a movie lover, this was the place to be. My best friend Aruna lived a few houses away from me, we were constant companions to each other. A short distance from our house was Kempegowda Circle, or KG Circle, that was like a jungle of cinema houses. There were times when we found an empty ticket window, bought a couple of tickets, got into the hall and asked people in seats next to us about the movie that was playing. Some of the halls were so close together, it was hard to figure out where we were.

The past two three weeks have been somehow overtly busy and a run around for me, and I must apologize that I have not been very regular in writing and posting. Just too many things seem to be happening on the domestic and professional front, and time is at a premium. Being connected to email most of the time, I do follow the posts on email, all the day, but have been delinquent in responding regularly.

FARIYAAD (1964) was produced and directed by Kidar Sharma under the banner of Show People. Ashok Sharma ( son of Kidar Sharma) and Zeb Rahman (also known as Preetibala) were in the lead roles with Ashok Kumar, Achala Sachdev, Dilip Dutt and Tuntun in the supporting roles. I remember to have read the reports in some of the film magazines at that time about propping up of Preetibala (Zeb Rahman) as another Madhubala in the making taking advantage of the resemblance of her face with that of Madhubala.
