As we all know, there are thousands of songs out there and they can all be classified in many different ways. Here on the blog, Atul himself has categorized songs into several categories, depending on mood (sad/happy), or content (birthday/Diwali), or style (qawwali/disco) or even musical instrument (guitar/harmonium). And many other ways.

Apart from all these, there is one category that we don’t have but I think all of us will agree could be a fun category. That is “songs that if I hadn’t heard in my childhood or seen the movie, I don’t think I would ever have heard in my life”. :-)

Now I am not suggesting Atul should create such a category – and in any case, this would be a totally personal category because it would depend on each person’s own childhood. A birthday song is a birthday song, but one person’s childhood song is different from another person’s childhood song.

But if there WERE such a category, I can think of several songs from my childhood that would safely qualify for being slotted in. :-)

Let’s be clear about one thing. I am not saying these are terrible songs. I think a lot of effort goes into producing ONE song. There are many who put in effort – the lyricist, singer(s), composer(s), musicians and others – so we need to appreciate the effort at least. No, I am just saying, that for some reason, the song just disappeared from public attention. As we all know, this blog is doing its bit to bring back some of those into the limelight.

Anyway, if I talk about my childhood – and into my teenage years, I am clearly talking about the 70s.

Most music lovers say (and it is hard to disagree with them) that the golden period of music ended with the 60s (or, at the most, early 70s). By the end of the 60s, music had lost two of its biggest names. First Roshan died. Jaikishen died soon after. S D Burman fell ill and though he composed for a few films (and still great music at that), he also died by the mid-70s. As did Madan Mohan. Naushad was practically non-existent through the 70s. Except for the odd films, the same could be said for Ravi and OP Nayyar. Shankar (of the Shankar-Jaikishen combo) tried to succeed on his own (though under the Shankar Jaikishan banner) but without his partner of so many years, his music was only a shadow of what Shankar Jaikishan had produced earlier.

The truth is, music itself had changed. And films had changed. The audience had changed, tastes had changed. As Tennyson said “the old order changeth, yielding place to new”. Rafisaab had yielded place to Kishore Kumar as the leading male voice of the industry. Shammi Kapoor had yielded place to Rajesh Khanna, who further yielded his place to Amitabh Bachchan during the 70s.

The harbinger of change in music was probably none other than R D Burman. His style was distinctly different from that of previous composers. And the audience lapped it up. Films got loud and garish – and the music often had to follow suit. Perhaps the best examples are the Dev Anand films of the 70s. Compare Navketan of the 70s with earlier decades and you get the picture.

Of course, there were the “gentler” films too (like Gulzar’s films or the Rajshri Productions films) but the average 70s commercial film was pure masala. With the music usually composed by one of the three biggies of the era – RD Burman, Laxmikant Pyarelal or Kalyanji Anandji.

This was the era I grew up in – and got used to. With songs like “aap ke kamre mein koi rehta hai”, “jai jai Shiv Shankar” and “rafta rafta dekho aankh meri ladi hai”. All popular songs at the time.

The 70s also saw a spate of actors (male and female) trying to make their name in the industry. Among the male actors, we had the likes of Anil Dhawan, Rakesh Roshan, Navin Nischol, Vinod Mehra, Vijay Arora, Rakesh Pandey, Ajay (Parikshit) Sahni, Vinod Khanna & Shatrughan Sinha (villains turned heroes), Amitabh Bachchan (yes, he too), Vikram, Kabir Bedi and some more.

Among the female actors, we had Rekha, Raakhee, Zeenat Aman, Parveen Babi, Sulakshana Pandit, Reena Roy, Moushumi Chatterjee and some more. Hema Malini had started earlier than this lot – and already got a head start in terms of success too.

But let’s talk about Moushumi Chatterjee.

Why Moushumi ? Because it’s her birthday today.

I must say I have extremely fond memories of Moushumi movies that I saw during the 70s. That was the era when Hema reigned. Everybody was crazy about Hema Malini (or at least Zeenat Aman) but, rebel that I tried to be, I used to prefer Moushumi to Hema and Zeenat.

Not that Moushumi was not popular. I remember she used to be referred to, early on, as the Balika Badhu girl. A reference to her role in the Bengali film by that name.

But in general, Moushumi was the “sweet” heroine of the time. With that sweet smile and that child-like dialogue delivery, she won over many hearts. Including mine. So what if she wasn’t slotted in the same league as Hema or Zeenat?

Moushumi and Vinod Mehra was a famous pairing of the time. Maybe it was triggered by the success of Anuraag (1972). I remember seeing them in Raftaar, Do Jhoot and Sabse Bada Rupaya. And then there was also Us Paar, which I haven’t seen. I quite liked the pairing.

A Moushumi film from the early years that does not feature Vinod Mehra, but which I like, is Ghulam Begum Baadshah (1973). I like the fact that she doesn’t play a typical, submissive woman in that film.

Moushumi has acted opposite bigger stars like Sanjeev Kumar, Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan but somehow I always liked her opposite Vinod Mehra. There was a charm in those films and a sort of chemistry between them that is difficult to explain.

The song I have picked for today is from one such film.

Do Jhoot.

There’s a reason I picked this particular film for today, though I had others in mind too. The music in this film is composed by Shankar (under the Shankar Jaikishen banner). By then, of course, Jaikishen was long gone, so it was all down to Shankar.

And today also happens to be Shankar’s death anniversary.

So it seemed appropriate to pick a song featuring Moushumi and composed by Shankar.

I think it would be fair to say that Shankar had a tough time after Jaikishen’s death. The music composed by him fared miserably, leading to people drawing the inevitable conclusion that it was Jaikishen who was primarily responsible for the success of their banner.

Shankar tried hard to fight this – he said in interviews “if I had died first, people would have said, Shankar was the main guy. That’s how people are”. But the fact is, he could not churn out successes (except for the rare one) – and finally that is what counts.

Even Raj Kapoor, with whom Shankar-Jaikishen’s name was inextricably linked since Barsaat (1949), chose to dump Shankar and go with Laxmikant Pyarelal for Bobby (1973). Raj Kapoor was then fighting his own internal demons, after the colossal and very expensive flop of Mera Naam Joker. Anyway, I remember Shankar taking this very badly – he felt very hurt by this. (To be fair to Shankar, the music of Mera Naam Joker had been very successful, even if the film had not). But post-Jaikishen, Shankar had not shown anything to give Raj Kapoor confidence that he could carry the show solo.

I remember an interview with Raj Kapoor where he said he missed Jaikishen so much that working with just Shankar would have constantly reminded him of Jaikishen. This might have contributed to his decision, but the fact that Shankar’s music wasn’t quite working, might also have played a big part. Raj Kapoor just HAD to make sure Bobby worked for him.

Anyway, Shankar continued to compose music through the 70s, for the odd film. But, post-Jaikishen, he never quite clicked.

Let’s now move on to the song.

It is “chalo bhool jaayen” from Do Jhoot.

Now this is a movie I fondly remember from my childhood. When I saw it then (in the mid-70s), I loved the film. When I saw it again recently, I will admit the love had diminished considerably. Not that I didn’t like the movie, but it didn’t have quite the same charm. It seemed like “just another 70s film”. Of course, it had one of my childhood favourite songs “chhatri na khol”. :-)

The story has similarities with Professor, with Moushumi doing a Shammi Kapoor type role. She is a young woman but has to disguise herself as an old woman in order to get a job of being a governess to a young girl (Aruna Irani). Pran falls in love with the “old” Moushumi, Vinod Mehra in love with the “young” Moushumi. There are the usual villain scenes – and all ends well in the end.

Coming to this song and the special category I mentioned at the start of this post, I have never heard this song other than seeing it in the film when I was young. And again, when I saw the film recently. Other than that, never. And that’s a bit of a pity, because it’s a pretty nice tune, once you listen to it a couple of times. Maybe others have heard it more often – but somehow I never got to hear it otherwise.

But then, like I said, music itself had changed in the 70s. Maybe Shankar was out of tune, not just with the S-J standard of music, but with the times too.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the song.

And we of course, wish Moushumi Chatterjee a very happy Birthday!

WE also pay a big tribute to the memory of Shankar with this song as this song happens to be the 800th song of Shankar Jaikishan in the blog as music directors.

“Aakaash”(1953) was produced by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas and directed by Manmohan Sabir for Manmohan Films, Bombay. the movie had Balraj Sahni, Shammi, Nadira, Manmohan Krishna, Badri Prasad, Jillobai, Neeta, N Trivedi, Agha etc in it.

Five songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the sixth song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata. Manmohan Sabir is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Only the audio of this song is available. This movie had Meena Kapoor and Lata as the two female playback singers who sang two songs each. It is difficult to guess how and on whom this song was picturised. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

This movie had seven songs in it. HFGK mentions the seventh song of the movie as “yeh mast nazar shokh ada kiske liye hai”. This song is described as a duet sung by unknown male and female voices. The lyricist of this song is also unknown. I have not been able to locate this song. So unless this song becomes available, “Aakash”(1953) will remain one song short of having all its songs covered in the blog.


Song-Ab is mar mar ke jeene se (Aakaash)(1953) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Manmohan Sabir, MD- Anil Biswas

Lyrics

saara chaman tha apna
wo bhi thha ek zamaana
sab saamne nazar ke
jalta hai ae ae
aashiyaana
jalta hai
jalta hai

ab is mar mar ke jeene se
mita dete to achcha thha
muhabbat ki na itni tum
sazaa dete to achcha thha
ab is mar mar ke jeene se

ghadi bhar muskuraa ke
umr bhar ka ab to rona hai
nazar milte hi gar mujh ko
rula dete to achcha thha
ab is mar mar ke jeene se ae

muhabbat ke charaagon ko
bujhaana thha bujha dete
magar dil ki lagi ko tum
bujha dete ho achcha thha
ab is mar mar ke jeene se ae

“Albela”(1971) was directed by A Shamsheer for ShriJi Films, Bombay. The movie had Mehmood, Namrata, Anwar Ali, I S Johar, Rajendranath, Ramesh Deo, Dhumal, Brahamchari, Mukri, Asit Sen, Mohan Choti, S Bannerji, Johny Whisky, Dilip Dutt, Mirza Musharraf, Aruna Irani, Achla Sachdev, Leela Mishra, Lalita Kumari, Baby Guddi, Moolchand, Daulatram, Jerry, Ram, Bharat etc in it.

This movie had five songs in it. Two songs-each with two versions, thus adding up to four song, have been discussed in the past.

That leaves just one song from the movie.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Albela”(1971). This song is the title song cum the introduction song of the movie. This song is sung by Kishore Kumar with a few words uttered by Mehmood. The song is picturised as a dance song on Mehmood, Aruna Irani and several dancers.

Hasrat Jaipuri is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

With this song, “Albela”(1971) joins the list of movies that have all their songs covered in the blog.


Song-Main hoon albela main hoon albela(Albela)(1971) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…Song No. 18….LAST SONG OF THIS SERIES
—————————————————————————
Today’s song is from film Bewaqoof-60. This is the last song of this series. This series has been very interesting and it gave a pleasure of discussing songs from the 50’s decade. Some of the songs were well known and popular in those times and the most others were good enough to provide nostalgic feelings.

Today’s article happens to be my 400 th article on this Blog. I started writing consistently on this Blog from 1-10-2012. Thanks to ATUL ji’s encouragement and active substantial help in writing Lyrics for me,I was able to reach the figure of 400 articles on songs in 30 months. This is an average of about 13-14 songs every month. During these months,our readers from all over the music loving world gave comments of appreciation,which worked as a motivation for me. In this period,I did 21 series of songs on different Themes. My endeavour has always been to present forgotten pearls from Hindi films and side by side,provide useful,unique information on films, songs, singers, composers, actors, directors, production houses, mythology and behind the scene stories.

In my school and college days, we were taught that our essays needed to be precise and to the point and that beating about the bush instead of coming to the point was not recommended.

Much to my surprise, I discovered that Hindi movie songs, especially romantic songs typically had lyrics that would beat about the bush and would rarely come to the point. Instead of stating “I love you” and be done with it, Hindi movie songs would refer to “Baadal”, “Aasmaan”, “Chaatak”, “Mor”, “jhoola”,”Chilman”, “dupatta” etc etc. As a conscientious student, I disapproved of such collosal waste of stationery. :)
