Since even before the films started to talk and sing, music has been an important part of the cinematic experience. Even in the days of silent films, there used to be a live orchestra sitting close to the screen, who would provide music accompaniment and some sound effects to make the proceedings more interesting and to keep engaged the attention of the viewers. Of course, when the sound came, and the music and song became such an inseparable part of the theme, the presentation and the making of the films that with it came a new distinction and a new significance that got attached to the role and position of a music director. But the story of the music and song in the films does not end there.

Since the beginning of film making in India, and then more so when the sound came into the movies in 1931, people from the length and breadth of the country came to Bombay, Calcutta, Lahore and other film production centers, with dreams to create music for the films. These men, and some women, were from many different parts of the country, from many walks in life and from many communities. They came to Bombay to be part of what is arguably the most distinctive popular music and popular film culture on this planet. They came to create what ostensibly became the very first crusade for fusion music, anywhere in the world – a fusion of many different forms of music – classical, folk, western etc.

Some of these men, and women became recognized as music directors, whose names would appear in the film credits and also get displayed on posters and advertisement. A large part them however worked as musicians, studio performers, arrangers, assistants and composers. Some of them would gain fame for a specialty that was their hallmark trade. Most of them however, have remained anonymous and unseen performers, playing their art from behind the bright lights. Their contributions toward making the Indian cinematic music as one of the world s most celebrated popular music genres, is immense and immeasurable. Their identity, their names – hidden, and probably lost, behind the curtains that separate the stage from off-stage. They are so close that we can hear them. And yet, they are so far that we cannot see them, or know them. But we know that what we hear as music and song and the background music of course, in the films, the recording of that music would not have been possible, but for these unnamed performers.

Some of their names found place and recognition in newspaper stories, and acknowledgement as assistant music directors in the film’s credits. Names like ‘Chic’ Choclate, Braz Gonsalves, Cawas Lord, Suhrid Kar, Anthony Gonsalves etc. became known to the film audiences and listening public. Then there is another set of names, that were eventually able to gain enough recognition and respect that they got opportunities to rise up and be independent music directors in their own right. Dattaram came out of the shadows behind Shankar Jaikishan. Sattar, the tabla player, teamed up with musicians Lala to compose music as Lala-Sattar, and then also included Asar to compose as a trio – Lala-Asar-Sattar. Suhrid Kar, longtime assistant to SD Burman, came into limelight, albeit for just one film – ‘Kaanch Ki Gudiya’ (1961). Sonik worked for almost a decade as assistant to Madan Mohan and Roshan, before striking out a path for himself in the company of his nephew, Omi. Similarly ‘Chic’ Choclate, the famed assistant to C Ramchandra, ventured out to create music independently.

There are many such names that can be listed. For most of them, independent careers, could not be sustained. Some of them were one film wonders, like Suhrid Kar. Some lasted for a few films – ‘Chic’ Chocolate, Lala-Sattar etc. Some were able to make longer careers as independent music directors – names like Sonik-Omi and Dattaram. In this last category, a notable name that must be included is GS Kohli.

Remembering GS Kohli on the anniversary of his passing away today.

The following brief bio sketch is adapted from the write up for the song “Kahaan Chalki Chham Se” , written by our dear Arun ji Deshmukh.

GS Kohli was born in Punjab in 1928. He became an expert in playing many instruments. When Pancholi gave OP Nayyar his first break with AASMAAN-1952, OP chose Kohli as his assistant. Kohli remained his assistant till 1968, even after becoming an independent Composer himself.

GS Kohli is one of the three Sikh music directors in the Hindi film industry, the other two being Sardul Kwatra and S Mohinder. GS Kohli was the only clean shaven Sikh amongst these three.

Till 1960, Kohli had contributed significantly in OP Nayyar’s popular films like ‘CID’ (1956), ‘Mr. and Mrs 55’ (1955), ‘Aar Paar’ (1954), ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’ (1956), ‘Naya Daur’ (1957), ‘Mujrim’ (1958), ‘Do Ustaad’ (1959), ‘Kashmir Ki Kali’ (1964) etc.

In 1960, GS Kohli‘s first film as an independent music director was released – ‘Lambe Haath’. His second film was ‘Mr India’ (1961) and then came ‘Faulaad’ (1963), ‘Shikari’ (1964), ‘Chaar Darvesh’ (1964), ‘Adventures of Robin Hood’ (1965), Namasteji (1965), ‘Do Matwaale’ (1966), ‘Naujawan’ (1966), ‘Sangdil’ (1967), ‘Jung aur Aman’ (1968), and then ‘Gunda’ and ‘Jaalsaaz’, his last two films in 1969.

Although GS Kohli was exceptional as an arranger and a tune maker for OP, he could not shine independently. Only B and C grade movies came to his way for creating music. His music in ‘Shikari’ and ‘Namaste ji’ is really wonderful and still continues to be popular. The famous song ”Tumko Piya Dil Diya Kitne Naaz Se” by Lata and Usha is from Shikari (1963).

GS Kohli passed away on 25-7-1996.

Yes, it is true that he is famous for the two films mentioned by Arun ji. However, we must also take a look at the complete body of work that he has accomplished in the one decade that he was active as an independent music director. Some songs that he has created for the film ‘Adventures of Robin Hood’, ‘Faulaad’ and ‘Jaalsaaz’ are no less that a gem category.

For today’s post, I present this peppy club dance song from the film ‘Gunda’. The lyrics are from the pen of Dev Kohli. The singing voice is that of Asha Bhosle. This 1969 film is produced under the banner of Smart Films and is directed Mohammed Hussain. It is a regular NA Ansari – Sheikh Mukhtar cops-and-robbers story. The main cast of actors includes Sheikh Mukhtar, NA Ansari, Sujit Kumar, Jayanthi, Bhagwan, Helen, Sham Kumar, Bela Bose, Shakila Bano Bhopali, Mohan Jerry, Mumtaz Begum, Uma Dutt and Shefali etc. amongst others. On screen, this dance song is performed by Bela Bose, and we can also see Sujit Kumar and Jayanti in the clip. The quality of video is not very good, so some other faces are not recognizable. I could make out Bhagwan in a black suit, hat and fake beard.

Listen and enjoy.

The blog completed six years yesterday (19 july 2014). It was planned to touch the much anticipated 10,000th song mark on that day, but that could not be achieved due to unavaodable circumstances. Today the circumstances are favourable. And fortunately it happens to be a sunday as well. Today we are definitely going to touch the 10,000th song mark. What is more, this will be achieved when it is still 19 july 2004 in some parts of the world ! So the roundness of the world, which dictates that different nations have their own times comes to our rescue. :)

Today morning I decided to work from 10,000th song backwards. Counting backwards, I see that the songs number 10,000 to 9996 are already done and dusted. And what fantastic songs (and also writeups) they all are !

9993 songs were posted till yesterday. That means I have to find songs number 9993rd to 9995th to discuss.

Here is the 9993rd song of the blog. It is an archtyical “Helen” song. It is sung by Asha Bhonsle and picturised on Helen as a bar dance song. Shakkel Badayuni is the lyricist. Music is composed by Ravi.

Shammi Kapoor is also visible in the picturisation of this song from “Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya” (1963).

Lyrics of this song were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

Here is the “phadakta hua” song to start the day which will culminate in the posting of some never before heard songs as the day progresses.


Song-Bahaaron ki kahaani sunaati hai jawaani (Pyaar Kiya To Darna Kya)(1963) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Ravi

Lyrics(Provided by Prakashchandra)

bahaaron ki kahaani sunaati hai jawaani
tu nazrein milaake deewaane zaraa sunn
bahaaron ki kahaani

deewaane zaraa sunn
sunn toh

ye chaar din ki zindagi
kyun iss mein ho gham ki bekhudi
ye chaar din ki zindagi
kyun iss mein ho gham ki bekhudi
kisi aankh se le le shokhiyaan
kisi zulf se le le mastiyaan
kisi zulf se le le mastiyaan
haaye
bahaaron ki kahaani
sunaati hai jawaani
tu nazrein milaake ae
deewaane zaraa sunn
bahaaron ki kahaani
sunaati hai jawaani
tu nazrein milaake
deewaane zaraa sunn
sunn deewaane

na dekh apni uljhanein
ruk jaaye na dil ki dhadkanein
na dekh apni uljhanein
ruk jaaye na dil ki dhadkanein
koi mast nazaaraa dhoondh le
koi dil ka sahaaraa dhoondh le
koi dil ka sahaaraa dhoondh le
haayye
bahaaron ki kahaani
sunaati hai jawaani
tu nazrein milaake
deewaane zaraa sunn
bahaaron ki kahaani
sunaati hai jawaani
tu nazrein milaake
deewaane zaraa sunn
sunn deewaane

qurbaan tujhpe meri jaan
rangeen banaa lein daastaan
qurbaan tujhpe meri jaan
rangeen banaa lein daastaan
ho jaa tu kissi ki chaah mein
kuchch phool bichhaa le raah mein
kuchch phool bichhaa le raah mein
hoyye
bahaaron ki kahaani
sunaati hai jawaani
tu nazrein milaake
deewaane zaraa sunn
bahhaaron ki kahaani
aa hhhaa haa aaaa
haaaa haaaa
tu nazrein milaake
deewaane zaraa sunn
sunn deewaane

Fortunately or unfortunately (for my friends, readers and followers) I belong to the variety of people who take pleasure in bringing out the hidden rare gems from HFM, usually from the 60s and the 70s. In keeping with my passion for “Rare Hindi Film Songs” (RHFS is my group on FB), today, I present two forgotten gems from one single movie – “Raftaar” released in 1975.

One can say, in some ways, it was a letdown. I mean my first meeting in person with Khyati Ben. We had been in email touch prior to that. I was in US, and had made plans to go down to Los Angeles and meet her. For identification purposes, she had sent me her photograph – a most dazzling blonde, with sharp features and attractive eyes, carrying a red rose. As per suggestions from Raja ji (who was also party to the email thread), I had been instructed to wear a trench coat, a felt hat, dark glasses and sporting a fake beard. And yes, also to carry a red rose. That would have been the identification to each other. Then, we had code words also defined for a more certain identification. On seeing the red rose in her hands, I was supposed to approach her and ask the question –“Aasmaan mein kitne sitaare hain?”. And she was supposed to reply with “hoshiyaar, khatre ke har taraf se ishaare hain”. That was how the introduction was planned.

Ava contributes songs on this blog regularly and also is present in the comments section. I met Ava Suri on the blogosphere, at Greta’s or Madhu’s, I can’t remember right now. Then when I started my blog, she started visiting it regularly as well. At this time, I discovered that she herself has three blogs. One is about Hindi movies and songs , the second one is about books, she has read ), and the third, which she doesn’t regularly update, is about her life and events and travels.

I was pleasantly surprised when I read the mail from Sudhirji in which he asked me to contribute a post for our blog. This was for celebrating the milestone event of 10000 posts on “atulsongaday.me” and I understood that all previous contributors were similarly requested. I was surprised because my contribution was only 1 post till then. To be even considered worthy enough for such a big event? It totally floored me. But by the time I decided to say yes, unfortunately, I had broken my right wrist. Luckily I had a post ready with me which I had sent to Atulji earlier. It had remained unpublished. I am sure he would have put it up if I had not mentioned that I did not consider it good enough for the blog. He must have thought “why upload it when the lady thinks it is not up to standards”. Right Atulji? As circumstances would have it, here comes that post without any modifications

Actually when we were racing towards 10000 I had thought that we will be reaching 10000 on June 27th and it will coincide with RD Burman’s birthday. But that was not to be as after all Atul has his responsibilities towards work and family which are a natural first in any one’s life. So we have reached Gaana number 9931. Chalo lets March Onto 10000.
