Amitabh – The Later Decades – 4
—————————————————–

Almost ‘Lolita’, but not quite so.  In the book, the young nympho is only 12 years old, and the old man is actually a pedophile.  In this Hindi film take off, the young girl is 18, and the old man is not a pervert, but is actually in love. And for all that matters, for all the time it matters, it is a two way love between the girl and the old man.

Around the time this film was relased, a joke was doing the rounds. Q: What is the height of good luck?  A: Amitabh in ‘Nishabd’.

Imagine the treasures lost.  The true magnitude may never be measured correctly.  We have a definitive record, in the shape of Hindi Film Geet Kosh, which presents the most complete information available.  The sense of completeness and correctness can be gauged by the fact that the compiler, Shri Harmandir Singh ji ‘Hamraaz’, went back to dig out the past records of the censor board, and also searched and retrieved as many film information booklets as possible, in his effort to compile as complete and as accurate set of information, as possible.  Even with this momentous effort that he has put in, he still acknowledges that the information is not yet 100%.

“Life is short but art and for that matter music is permanent. There is no death of a true art and so is it with music.”

These are the words of one who is known as the ‘Gentleman Musician’ amongst the community of music directors and musicians, both in Bombay and in Calcutta.  Vistas Ardeshir Balsara – a name that is part of a long list of very talented musicians, whose contributions to the making of the film music has been immense.  These musicians, instrumentalists and arrangers, most of whom were  experienced and capable of being music directors in their own right, rarely got to appear in the limelight and be recognized for their work.  V Balsara is one such gifted musicians who did get the opportunity to step out from behind the curtain, and be known for his art.  I am sure all will remember the iconic song “Ae Mere Dil Kahin Aur Chal” (‘Daag’, 1952) in all its flavors.  The piano accordion in this song is played by him.

Remembering V Balsara on the anniversary of his passing away (24th March).

Shyamlal Babu Rai, who wrote endearing gems in the golden era of melody, such as “Bade Armaanon Se Rakha Hai Balam Teri Kasam”, and also popular hits for the new generation in the 1970s, such as “Aap Jaisa Koi Meri Zindagi Mein Aaye, To Baat Ban Jaaye”, had started his career back in the 1946 with two completely obscure and now unknown films – ‘Double Face’ and ‘Jungle Ki Pukaar’.  Information about these films is not easily traceable, and neither have the songs of these films have surfaced so far.

I had not heard the name the film “Pathan’ (1962) until I came across the songs on this Blog itself. However, I had heard two songs from this movie sung by Talat Mehmood which were popular on the radio in the 60s. One of Talat Mehmood songs chaand mera baadalon mein kho gaya has already been covered in the Blog. Not much of the information on the film is available on the internet sources other than star cast and songs. IMDB has tagged this film as family drama. The film may have been bombed at the box office and became obscure over a period of time.
