Today (23 april 2014) is the birth anniversary of S Janaki. I almost worship her voice, right from childhood.

She has the distinction of singing songs in 17 languages including Tamil,Telugu,Kannada,Malayalam,Oriya,Tulu, English, Sanskrit, Bengali, Sinhalese, Konkani, Punjabi, Japanese,Baduga,German etc.

I will not write about S.Janaki`s Tamil, Telugu, Kannada songs,because she is a legendary singer in South Indian movies and enough information is available on this topic online.

I want to write about her work in Hindi movie industry, where her voice was not used to the fullest extent. In Hindi movies she has not done significant /substantial work, as she used to get only songs in movies dubbed from South Indian movies. Moreover, she tended to get songs meant to be picturised on cabret or mujra dancers. Whaetevr HFM assignments came her way, she gave them her best.

In our blog there are only 2 songs of S Janaki- One from Satyameva Jayate and another from Saaheb. I am planning to introduce more HFM songs of S Janaki songs to the blog.

According to my thinking or you may call it “imagination”, Bombay music directors did not use her voice to the fullest extent possible because of her slightly Southern accent, which in our Hindi movie music industry is a very BIG NO NO. Vani Jayaram, P.Susheela, K.S.Chitra, etc also suffered the same fate. Kavita Krishnamurthy is one of the few South Indian playback singers to succeed in this field. She had the backing of Laxmikant Pyarelal. Kavita Krishnamurty also had the advantage of being brought up in North India.

Bombay (Hindi) movie music directors may have used her voice on a few occasions because of following reasons:

1)Main female singers(read it as Lata, Asha, Anuradha Paudwal, Alka Yagnik & company) of that era were busy and could not spare time for all the songs of one movie and that led to S Janaki used to get one of the less important songs in these movies..

2)Most of the songs offered to her were picturised either on cabret dancers like Silk Smita, Leena Daas, Anuradha, Disco Shanthi & Co.(southern dancers with skimpy dresses) and the more sought after singers tended to avoid singing these songs.

3)Most of the movies in which she sang are produced and directed by South Indian movie directors or producers. Producers found it profitable and easy to get S Janaki in South Indian recording studios for the recording of all songs of one movie at a stretch.

4)Songs that she got to sing often had lewd and suggestive words like “oooo”…..”aaaaaa hhaaaaa”, ”Haiyyaa aaiiyyo”(in between the song)and the more establisged singers were reluctant to lend their voices to such songs.

In summary, most of her Hindi movie songs were those that were picturised on heroine singing under rain, or songs were the heroines or the Cabret dancers would be singing to seduce the hero or villain in his den. Some of these sound would even have double meaning lyrics.

She had started her innings in Hindi movies with dubbed movies like “Do dil deewane”,”Aashiq C.I.D” etc(a Duet with Mannadey)

She was active in Hindi film industry only during the period from 1983 to 1990. And this was a period when the quality of Hindi movie songs had touched rock bottom.

I tried to list out the movies where she worked in Hindi movies:

Some sites mention that she had sung for Ravindra Jain, Jaidev too, but I am not able to trace out the name of movies, where S.Janaki sung songs for these two music directors.

Whatever may be the standard of her Hindi movie songs, I love her voice unconditionally.
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY Janaki Amma”

Here is a song from “Jhoothhi” (1985) on this occasion. This movie was produced by Debesh Ghosh and directed by Hrishikesh Mukherji for Sri Lokenath Chitramandir. The movie had Rekha,Raj Babbar, Amol Palekar,Supriya Pathak,Deven Varma, Prema Narayan, Shammi,Madan Puri,Gopi Desai,Goga Kapoor,Rasik Dave,Dina Pathak,Suresh Chatwal, Manmauji,Rajnath,Chandrakant Takkar,Ravindra Arora,Romeo, Archana,Master Maulin, Chandramohan,Ajit Vachani etc in it.

This song is sung by S Janaki and it is lip synced by Rekha. The song is picturised as a picnic song on Rekha, Raj Babbar,Rasik Dave,Prema Narayan and Deven Varma. Rasik Dave plays the role of a drug addict, who is Raj Babbar`s Younger brother, Rekha (who loves Raj Babbar,)tries to reform him in this song.

“Daaera” (1953) is a forgotten movie by now and few people today have any idea about what this movie was all about. But we in this blog know about the movie and the background behind the making of this movie, thanks to the details provided by Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh, our beloved inhouse encyclopaedia. Here is what he has to say about this movie:

DAAERA-1953 is surely the most forgotten, least known and a very mournful film by Kamal Amrohi. After the runaway success of MAHAL-1949, Kamal Amrohi was obsessed with the theme and he thought that what Madhubala did in Mahal, Meena Kumari could do better in Daaera.

Daayera was a ‘subkuchh’ Kamal Amrohi film. He not only produced and directed it, but also he wrote the Dialogues and Screenplay also, besides making it under his own Banner- Kamal pictures. The role of Meena Kumari was written such that there was no scope for the Hero(unlike Ashok Kumar in Mahal), and hence Nasir Khan was taken. Though a brother of Dilip Kumar, Nasir was a real B grade actor, who, even if he had strived hard, could not have overshadowed Meena Kumari.

Actually the film was very effective with its haunting scenes and ‘daraawna’ background music. The overall impact of the movie was successful in creating a mystery atmosphere, but unfortunately, comparisons with Mahal were unavoidable. In 1953, Madhubala was a greater star than Meena Kumari , who blossomed in the 60s and 70s mainly.

Meena Kumari, playing Sheetal, a young lady, is married to a very old and ailing husband(Nana Palsikar), who looks more like her father. There are some scenes where this has been emphasized too. To vent her emotions, she has an affair with Shravan Kumar(Nasir Khan).

The film depicts the death of Nasir Khan, falling off a balcony, while Meena Kumari watches it. This affects her mind and she can not come out of it, finally succumbing to the emotions and committing suicide by falling off the balcony, just like her lover.

After this, the viewer is so much confused about the story(at least I was), that whether there is a reincarnation or repeat scenes of the Hero/Heroines was not clear.
Anyway, those days,the reviews in the papers and magazines were also unfavourable and very soon the film went off the theatres.

I remember, Meena Kumari, in an interview once had said ‘ I would like to forget that I acted in a film called Daayera.’

Four songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the fifth song from the movie. This song is sung by Mubarak Begam. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Jamal Sen.

Only the audio of this song is available. From the story of the movie, it appears that this song was picturised on Meena Kumari.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Khyati Bhatt.

“Duniya” (1949) was produced by Fazli brothers and directed by S F Hussain. The movie had Karan Dewan, Suraiya, Yakub, Anwari, Bhudo Advani, Shakila, Zubeida, Jankidas etc in it.

Five songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the sixth song from the movie. It is sung by Suraiyya. There were four lyricists in this movie, viz. Aarzoo Lakhnavi, S.H. Bihari, Asad Bhopali and Saraswati Kumar Deepak but the lyricist of this song is not known. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the lyricist of this song.

C Ramchandra is the music director.

Only the audio of this song is available, but it is clear that the song was picturised on Suraiyya herself.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.


Song-Armaan lute dil toot gaya (Duniya)(1949) Singer-Suraiyya, MD-C Ramchandra

Lyrics(Provided by Nitin Shah)

armaan lute dil toot gaya
armaan lute dil toot gaya
dukh dard ke saathi chhoot gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya
ae maut sahaara de aakar
ab saare sahare chhut gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya

ooooo
afsos ke mere dil ki kali
ooooo
afsos ke mere dil ki kali
khilne hi se pehle sookh gayi
kuchh tej hawa ke jhonke se
jo saari bahaaren loot gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya

jab dil ne kisi ko pyaar kiya
duniya ne kuchh aisa waar kiya
aa aa
jab dil ne kisi ko pyaar kiya
duniya ne kuchh aisa waar kiya
mujh jaise bahut se aayine
kuchh tod diye kuchh toot gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya

ooo jeene ki zara bhi aas nahin
oooo
jeene ki zara bhi aas nahin
ab kuchh bhi hamaare paas nahin
jo dil se lagaa kar rakhe thhe
wo chhaale bhi ab phoot gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya
armaan lute dil toot gaya
dukh dard ke saathi chhoot gaye
armaan lute dil toot gaya

“Sanyaasi” (1945) was produced and directed by A K Kardar. The movie had Ghulam Mohammad (actor- different from the music director), Shamim Bano, Amar, Shyam Kumar etc in it.

Three songs from this movie have been discussed in the past.

Here is the fourth song from this movie. This song is sung by Zohrabai Ambalewaali and Amar. Pt Madhur is the lyricist. Music is composed by Naushad.

Only the audio of this song is available. My guess is that the song was picturised on the lead pair of the movie, viz. Shamim Bano and Amar.

The songs of this movie, including this song sound surprisingly “modern” by the standards of 1945. The explanation for this could be that the music of “Rattan” (1944) was already relesaed by that which had redefined the road map for the future course of HFM and that could be the reason for the rather modern sounding songs of this movie.

It is said that Naushad introduced folk music of UP in his songs of “Rattan” (1944) that revolutionised the way Hindi movie songs began to be created. Going by this song of “Sanyasi” (1945), it would seem that Naushad did not confine himself to folk music of just UP, but looked elsewhere as well. The music of this song sounds so much like Gujarati folk music to me. If my guess is correct, then this music be the first instance of Gujarati folk music being used in Hindi movie songs.

This song also reminds me of the “Chori Chori” (1956) song “Aaja sanam madhur chaandni me hum(Chori Chori)” and in facts sound like a fore runner to the iconic “Chori Chori” (1956) song.

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Nitin Shah.
