After celebrating R. D. Burman’s 500th song on the blog with the grand medley of English songs from Bombay to Goa (1972), we are coming to the last song from this movie to be covered on this blog.

The name of the movie suggests that this is a road movie. As usual a road movie needs to have a main character, who undergoes a transformation and realizes his/her past mistakes and comes back to the straight and narrow. The main character of this plot is Mala (Aruna Irani). She is on the run after having witnessed a murder. She boards a bus, which goes from Bombay to Goa.

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 1

The write up on this music director by AK ji (see here) opens with the lead in comment, that “. . . his music towers over his films”.  I am whole heartedly in agreement with this comment.  As he goes on to say that just “. . . one song of his – “Paas Baitho Tabiyat Bahal Jaayegi” (‘Punarmilan’, 1964) sung by Rafi Sb is enough to give him immortality.”  And then one reviews the list of films with him as the music director – ‘Main Aur Mera Bhai’ (1961), ‘Punar Milan’ (1964), ‘Ek Saal Pehle’ (1965), ‘Chale Hain Sasural’ (1966), ‘Suhsila’ (1966) aka ‘Subah Zaroor Aayegi’ (1977), and then of course the iconic ‘Jai Santoshi Maa’ (1975) – the film that gave its run for the money, in a stiff competition to the big time grosser of the same year (viz. ‘Sholay’), and still continues to be on the list top grossing films of all time.  About two decades of active work in the industry, with just sixteen films listed against his name.  But then, as AK ji says, it is just one song that confers immortality on him.

Seven years, nineteen films, a celebration wedding that was the talk of the tinsel town, and then handing over the torch to the next generation.  That about sums up the career of the once beauty star – Babita.  Greetings to her on the 67 birthday today (20th April).

The short lived career, however, was a scintillating one.  She appeared opposite to practically all the top heroes in the industry at that time, and did a number of musical romantic films, as could have be the draw for the young and beautiful lady.  It is known that GP Sippy first offered the role of Sheetal, the young widow with child, for his upcoming film ‘Andaz’ (1971) to Babita. After some in-family discussions, she turned down the role, possibly considering that it might work to be a negative for her career.  Another youngster, Hema Malini, took on the role.  Hema Malini had made her debut in 1969, three years after Babita’s debut (‘Dus Lakh’, 1966).  Both are of the same age though, having the same year of birth.  The trajectories of their subsequent careers and lives, tell their own stories.

aaye bahaar ban ke
lubhaa kar chale gaye. . .

These lines would apply to so many artists, especially those whose careers in the industry have been short lived, or curtailed for various reasons.  But whatever is the measure of the duration of their work in the industry, it is their creations that continue to delight us, and keeps the memories alive. Even if it is one song.  And the fun part is the process of discovery that continues.  Some of these lesser known artists ended up working for lesser known banners and films.  Their music would only sometimes make it to the mainstream and popular cinema.  Most of the time they created songs for movies that remained unknown and obscure.  Today, when we dig up such unheard gems, that first encounter is such a charm and a pleasure.

Gopal Bahadur Singh is one such songwriter, whose work mostly remained confined to religious an stunt action films in the 1950s and 60s.  We are more familiar with his pen name – Gopal Singh Nepali or GS Nepali, the poet who gave us the timeless bhajan – “Darshan Do Ghanshyam Nath Mori Ankhiyaan Pyaasi Re” in the film ‘Narsi Bhagat’ (1957).

Remembering GS Nepali on the anniversary of his passing away today (17th April).

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s….Song No-14
————————————————–
Today’s song is from a 1958 film-Night Club.

With great determination and very much reluctantly, have moved away from the songs of 1957. As I mentioned I had shortlisted 17 songs from this year alone. It was ridiculous ! With songs from other years, the series would have become a marathon of about 30 odd songs. This is not acceptable to me. Stretching ONE theme for such a long time,in my opinion loses its meaning,charm and writer’s interest. We have already enjoyed 5 Gems from 1957. This much laxity was enough for 1957. The balance songs, I am sure,will find their way to this Blog,anyway.

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s… Song No. 12
—————————————————-

Today’s song is from the 1957 film Ustad.

Ustad was one of those Detective movies that Ashok Kumar has become a specialist in. He was the undisputed choice of all film makers for this genre of films. He too did justice to such films. However, may be due to his age or looks, or due to the nature of this genre, his Heroines in these films were often from the second rung or or else his old companions like Nalini Jaywant, Kamini Kaushal etc. Kumkum, Geeta Gali, and some such actresses acted with him in such movies. Of course Madhubala and even Nutan acted with him in such films.
