Our film industry is is not a level playing field for artists, that is for sure ! There were actors, directors, composers and singers who became famous. At the same time there were many ‘not so famous’ artists in all categories. But the largest group of artists are those who can be clubbed together as ‘unknown or less known’ artistes. The industry got enriched with the contributions of all these categories of artists. The ‘Famous’ artists may be 20%, the ‘Not so famous ‘ may be 30%, but the ‘Unknown or less known’ artistes must be 50% of all the artists in the industry.

To make this point clear,I shall give some examples.

Raj Kapoor was ‘Famous’, Shakti kapoor was ‘not so famous’ but S.Kapoor (Ek do teen-53) was ‘Unknown or less known actor’.

S D Burman was ‘Famous ‘, Snehal Bhatkar was ‘Not so famous ‘, but Shankar lal (Khushboo-54) was ‘Unknown or less known’ composer.

B R Chopra was a ‘famous’ director, P N Arora was “Not so famous”, but Bal Chhabda (Doraha-52) was an ‘Unknown or less known’ director.

Mohd. Rafi was a ‘famous’ singer, Balbir was “not so famous”, but Jawer Hussain (Chaar chaand-53) was an ‘Unknown or less known’ singer.

To complicate matters further, there were several ‘same name artistes’, operating in the same period. This not only created confusion, but also lot of injustice to the lesser known artistes when their works were credited to their famous ‘Name Alike’s ‘. Thus films of Narayan Dutt, a lesser known composer were credited to the famous composer N.Dutta or the films directed by the comedian/actor Asit Sen were credited to Director Asit Sen. Even the songs of Noorjehan Senior ( Ummeed-41 and Sasural-41) were coolly added to the list of songs of the famous Noorjehan. Child roles done by Shashi Kapoor Sr. were credited to the famous actor Shashi Kapoor ( brother of Raj Kapoor).

Likewise hundreds of controversies remained unsolved. Many of these were solved as a result of hard work of selfless workers in this field of old films and music.

Why I remembered all this was because the composer pair, who gave music to the film, ‘Mahatma”-53 was also one such victim. Today’s song is from this film, sung by Manna Dey. The composer pair of this movie is VASANT- RAMCHANDRA. It was very conveniently assumed that they were the pair of famous Vasant Desai and C.Ramchandra. Till 2013, even I was under this impression and in a comment on this Blog in 2012, I had even stated so- wrongly !

However, later in 2013, the fact came to light that this pair consisted of VASANT PAWAR AND RAMCHANDRA WADHAVKAR, both composers from the Marathi film world. Together they gave music in five Hindi films. Vasant Pawar individually gave music in 50 Marathi films and 8 Hindi films. Ramchandra Wadhavkar gave music in 5 Marathi and 5 Hindi films.

Vasant Pawar ( 1927 to 6-8-1965) was from Kolhapur. He was professionally trained in Sitar. He was also proficient in playing Flute, Sarangi, harmonium etc. He was assistant to Khemchand Prakash in Ranjit. From 1946, he worked for Sudhir Phadke. He gave music ( under guidance of Sudhir Phadke) in the film Jai Bhim-52, Earlier he had composed one song in the film Do Kaliyaan-49, where his co-composer was P.Shankar. Finally, he composed music for Shivleela-52 (Bilingual in Hindi/Marathi). His music was extremely popular in Marathi films. He also composed NFS sung by Lata, Asha and many others. He died in 1965 at a young age of just 38 years due to alcoholism.

Ramchandra Wadhavkar ( 1919 to 2-12-1972) started with Prabhat films in 1935 as a Harmonium player. He also played Organ and Sitar. Along with V Shantaram, he too left Prabhat and joined Rajkamal. For a few years he worked in a private company too and hence he was unable to accept Shantaram’s offer for films on two occasions. He joined Vasant Pawar in 1952 as a composer. He died in 1972.

Vasant Ramchandra gave music in 5 films.

1. Nanhe munne-52 ( Remake of Marathi film-Chimni Pakharen)

2.Mahatma-53 (Bilingual in Hindi and Marathi)

3.Suhagan-54 ( Remake of Marathi film Suwasini)

4. Kalakaar-54

5.Saavdhan-54

All the above films were produced by Datta (Dada) Dharmadhikari, under the banner of his “Aalhad Chitra-Poona”. He also directed three films. Only Kalakaar and Suhagan were directed by his protege Anant Maane. (Information compiled from ‘Marathi Sangeetkar Kosh’ and other sources).

Today’s song is an excellent one, soulfully sung by Manna Dey, doing full justice to the song. The film Mahatma-53 is making a Debut here, with this song.


Song-Naina bhar aaye neer (Mahatma)(1953) Singer-Manna Dey, Lyrics-Ehsan Rizvi, MD-Vasant Ramchandra

Lyrics

Naina aa aa
bhar aaye neer daata
naina bhar aaye neer
naina bhar aaye neer daata
naina bhar aaye neer

chanchal man kee bhool se jeewan
jaise kaali raa aa aa aat
jaise kaali raaat
darshan kab dikhlaaoge
aur
kab hogi parbhaat
mitegi kab ye peer daata
naina bhar aaye neer
naina bhar aaye neer daata
naina bhar aaye neer

kab honge gun gaate gaate
sufal mere sangeet daata
sufal mere sangeeeet
meethha hai jab naam tumhaara
madhur bana do geet
hirday kar do thheer daata
Naina bhar aaye neer
naina bhar aaye neer daata
naina bhar aaye neer

paap aur punn donon se chhudaa do
de kar naya sahaara aa aa
de kar naya sahaara
paap aur punn donon se chhudaa do
dekar naya sahaara aa aa
de kar naya sahaara
tum bin sab aasha jhoothhee
bin diya kahaan ujiyaara
chaahe jale shareer daata
naina bhar aaye neer
naina bhar aaye neer daata
naina bhar aaye neer

Genius of Jaidev – 22
—————————–

Normally, a music director superbly composing smooth, not noisy, but melodious tunes with Indian classical music base, Jaidev has composed a western music based foot tapping song as well. May be it was the demand of the film scenario!! And who is among the more adept artists to sing such songs? Asha, of course. So here it is a song from Jaidev in the voice of Asha but in an entirely different style. Just compare this to the previous posted song of Asha from the same film, same lyricist and by the same music director.

Today, the 4th of August, is a day we celebrate as the birth anniversary of one of Hindi film industry’s undoubted geniuses, Kishore Kumar.

The term “genius” tends to get thrown around rather loosely and frequently nowadays, much like terms like “legend” and “great”. This is all the more reason why I am rather cautious when I use it and certainly don’t throw it around.

Having said that, I have absolutely no hesitation in using it for Kishore Kumar (or Kishoreda as he is fondly referred to by his friends and fans). Kishore da was one of those rare individuals who tried his hand at many dimensions of the industry – and left a mark with most of them. In a sense, he can be called a true harfan maula of the industry.

As has been mentioned in the earlier posts of the day, today (19 july 2015) is the seventh birth anniversary of this blog. One single article was posted on the first day of the blog in 2008. The blog remained one song a day blog for the first forty days and then we began to post several articles every day. Today, seven year later, the blog has well over elevent thousand songs. If one takes an average, it turns out to be an average of 4.5 songs per day. Come to think of it, maintaining this daily strike rate for seven years is quite an achievement.

Today (13 july 2015) is the 76th birth anniversary of Prakash Mehra (13 july 1939- 17 may 2009). He was a producer and director of Hindi movies. People growing up in 1970s grew up on a diet of Amitabh Bachchan movies which were produced and directed either by Manmohan Desai or by Prakash Mehra. It was in fact Prakash Mehra who helped create the legend of Amitabh Bachchan with “Zanjeer”(1973) ata time when Amitabh Bachchan was written off and he was on the verge of biddling farewell to his acting career. He was match point down ( as they say in tennis) when “Zanjeer”(1973) happened and he never had to look back again from ever since.

Recently, I read ‘In the Company of a Poet – Gulzar in Conversation with Nasreen Munni Kabir’ (2012). The book gives a bird’s eye view on the life of Gulzar – from setting his foot in Bombay (Mumbai) in mid-1950 to his continuing association with Bollywood. Before reading this book, I was under the impression that, like many others who came to Bombay to fulfill their aspirations to work in Bollywood, Gulzar was one of them. It was not so as revealed from his conversations in the book. Gulzar came to Bombay not by his own choice but as a part of his father’s plan to divide the financial responsibility of his large family following his post-partition migration from Dina (in Pakistan) to Delhi.
