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.

The twinkling eyes and the arresting smile get to your heart when she sings “Kabhi Aar Kabhi Paar Laaga Teer e Nazar”. An accomplished dancer, who has the capability to take a song, many levels higher.  Witness that in “Diya Na Bujhe Ri Aaj Hamaara” (‘Son of India’, 1962), “Dagaa Dagaa Wai Wai Wai” (‘Kaali Topi Laal Roomaal’, 1959), “Tera Jalwa Jisne Dekha Wo Tera Ho Gaya” (‘Ujaala’, 1959), “Tera Teer O Bepeer Dil Ke Aaram Paar Hai”, (‘Sharaarat’, 1959), “Madhuban Mein Radhika Naache Re” (‘Kohinoor’, 1960), “Rang Rangeela Saanwra Mohe Mil Gayo Jamna Paar” (‘Baarood’, 1960), “Ab Na Chhupo Re Chhalia” (‘King Kong’, 1962), “Kaanha Jaa Re Teri Murli Ki Dhun” (‘Tel Maalish Boot Polish’, 1962), “Zulmi Hamaare Saanwariya Ho Ram” (‘Mr X In Bombay’, 1964), “Tujhse Wo Neha Lagaaye” (‘Shreeman Funtoosh’, 1965), “Door Kahin Door Hamen Le Chalo Sanam” (‘Ek Sapera Ek Lutera’, 1966), “Main To Khadi Re Khadi Re, Aankh Ladi Re Ladi Re” (‘Sab Ka Ustad’, 1967), “Mera Naam Hai Chameli, Main Hoon Maalan Albeli” (‘Raja Aur Runk’, 1968), and many more.  Once again request Atul ji to create a new category – ‘Kum Kum Dances’.

Greetings to Kum Kum on her birth anniversary today (22nd April).

Yes, takes the entertainment value of a song many notches higher.  That is the ‘abhinaya kala’ that she has mastered as an accomplished Kathak dancer.  Her Guru – the legendary Shambhu Maharaj of Lucknow gharana.  Nothing more to be added for her art, other than to say, take a view of the sampler list of her dance songs given above.  And you will know.  All that she communicates with the minutest of twitching eyebrows, the slight curl of the lips, and the graceful steps across the dance floor.  The performance itself is the statement enough.

She was born Mehru-nisa, in Husainabad in Bihar.  She did her schooling in Benaras and Lucknow, and then trained in Kathak in Lucknow.  Much else is not known about her early life.  She started her career in Hindi films in the early 1950s.  After brief appearances in ‘Aansoo’ (1953) and ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954), Guru Dutt gave her an opportunity for a song in his film ‘Aar Paar’ (1954).  The performance caught the attention, and Kum Kum was a busy actress after that.  Her dancing prowess is well documented in the sampler list given above.  She would soon begin to appear in leading roles, well through the better part of 1960s, albeit she was never able to successfully break into the A grade cinema. ‘Bombay by Night’ of 1976, opposite to Sanjeev Kumar, is probably her last film. She got married and left for Saudi Arabia, taking a final bow out of the film industry.  There are references that say she is currently back in India and living a retired life in Bombay.

Today’s song is an off-the-mainstream Hindi cinema, from the Bhojpuri film ‘Ganga Maiya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo’ (1963).  This is the first Bhojpuri film that was made in India.  An interesting anecdote behind its creation.  At an film awards ceremony in late 1950s, the then President of India, Babu Rajendra Prasad, who hails from Bihar, spoke with Nazir Hussain, the renowned character actor, also from Bihar.  The president queries why not make films in Bhojpuri language.  In fact Nazir Sb was already preparing a script for a Bhojpuri film, with this title.  He promised the president that it will happen soon.

Nazir Husain discussed the script with Bimal Roy, but he did not express any great amount of interest in the project.  A later chance meeting with Bishwanath Prasad, a businessman and a film distributor and exhibitor in Bihar, led to a more interested commitment, and the film was launched with financing from the businessman.  The film was completed in 1962.  A special screening was arranged for the President, before the public release.  The film was released to public in 1963.

The title of the film refers to a tradition in Bihar that says, ‘Mother Ganga, I will offer you the auspicious yellow sari’. The word ‘piyari’ represent the yellow sari.  The tradition is that people will pray to Mother Ganges, and place their wish to her, in their prayers.  On the fulfillment of their wishes, they will make an offering the auspicious yellow sari, to Mother Ganges.

The song is a lovely melody that has remained in memory from the radio listening days.  The song is created by Shailendra and the music is by Chitragupt.  The singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar.

Ah yes, we have a century celebration today, attached to this song.  Music director Chitragupt completes 300 songs on the blog.  That is a superlative achievement, for an artist who never really got into the grade A cinema. And yet, this number here is a testimony to the quality of his music. The pleasing melodies that are his handiwork have a lasting characteristic that have kept alive his songs in the minds of music lovers.

A superb song that will tug at the heart strings.  The words are simple, and the song is very hummable.  View, listen and enjoy.

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…. Song No….4
—————————————————-
Today’s song is from film Albeli-1955.

The year 1955 gave us some really meaningful and entertaining films. Raj Kapoor’s ‘Shri 420′ tried to bring in limelight, as usual, the hypocrisy of the elite society. It was a great film with a message, good direction and everlasting music by Shanker-Jaikishen, the three specialities of an RK film. From this film onwards, “Raju” became the favourite name of Raj Kapoor’s Heroes.( Like ‘Shanker’ was Shammi Kapoor’s lucky name in early films. Similarly ‘Vijay’ was the favourite film name of Amitabh Bachhan in 20 films, of Jeetendra in 18 films and of Mithun Chakrawarty in 16 films.).

Today (21 january 2015) is a day when I woke up rather early which is quite uncharacteristic for me. But then situation called for it. No, I was not keen to watch the world cup match between Pakistan and West Indies. Rather, I wanted to ensure that I did not miss the world cup match between BCCI ( team India for the gullible persons) and South Africa. People aware of the match schedule of the world cup would wonder what non sense I was talking about.

So what did you say was so special about 31st Jan?  Well, to start with, the realization that, gosh, one full month has slipped by in what was just a few days ago, the New Year.  The year that was new, is now one month old.   And do you know how old is the blog today? OK, let me calculate.  With the start date of 19th July, 2008, we are looking at – oh, 6 full years + 6 full months + 13 full days.  A quick visit to the calculator tells us that this corresponds to 6.54 years.  So there, our blog is 6.54 years old.

Chilly winter greetings to all from a cold, cold Delhi. As I sit and write this post, the minimum temperature that continues to be maintained is in the range of 2 – 4 degrees C.  Add to that the fog that keeps the warm sun away from the view.  And top it up with rain that has been visiting us off and on.  When I woke up today morning, it was drizzling.  And the leaves of the trees waving in a brisk breeze told the story that it is going to be another chilly day.  And so it has been for the past couple of weeks.  Although I enjoy such weather, but there have been other circumstances, associated with the weather, that have kept me occupied and away from the blog activities.  But today, we must celebrate.

The wait has been prickly. Eyebrows have been raised. Murmurs of disquiet are being heard. The posts have been delayed on the blog. Important posts, important anniversaries are overdue. All due to me. There is so much that has happened, that should have been covered at least two or three days ago. Multiple posts are in progress with me, and also posts and requests for anniversaries are piled up and waiting in the mailbox. On my side, I have a string of very plausible ‘excuses’ in my defense. But those details can wait. :)  The primaries first – it is six hundredth milestone that had to be breached, that is holding up everything else.

The hoof sounds of the returning horses sounded tired and beaten. It was hot and dusty. The sun beat down mercilessly on the sweaty gang members. The lonely tree provided some respite from the blazing heat. Lounging in his hammock tied to it, Mastermind lazily flicked the orangutan walking on his bare arm. The face of Kaalia appeared around the bend in the rocks.
