The blog has seen two dry days in a row when no new posts were made. It is something unusual for the blog but it cannot be avoided. As it is, I was travelling all these days. In fact my travel is not over yet. I have to commence my return journey from today and it will be another couple of days before I arrive back at my base.

Ashok Kumar or Kumudlal Kunjilal Ganguly (his birth name) would have been 103 if he had been there. Born in 1911, in Bhagalpur Bengal presidency was a laboratory assistant at Bombay Talkies when he was offered a role in 1936 in Jeevan Nayya. Thus began his six-decade long career. Of course by the time I became aware of Ashok Kumar, the actor, he was past doing hero roles and into playing a father or grand father or some such character. But to give credit where due his name would always appear first in the title cards of all these movies. Whether it was the grandpa in “Anuraag”, “Anurodh”, “Khoobsurat” or many such movies. He was very charming in the brief role of Air Force officer in “Aradhana”. He was Vijay Anand’s “Jewel Thief” as well as Brij Sadanah’s “Raja” along with Pran as “Rana” in “Victoria No: 203”. After the 1973 hit Victoria No: 203 this pair was repeated many times.

I am sure that quite a few regulars of this blog must be wondering why an Amitabh Bachchan song had not appeared so far, seeing that today is his 72nd birthday (DOB 11 october 1942). As it is, I typically work up from older songs to newer ones in a day. I have discussed four songs of 1940s and 1950s today whereas Amitabh Bachchan made his debut in Hindi movies only in late 1960s. :)

Greetings to Vinod Khanna on his 68th birthday. (6 october)

A commanding personality to contend with on screen. In whatever role he appears, he has the capacity to be the center of gravity in every scene. In the last scenes of ‘Mere Gaon Mera Desh’ (1971), appearing as the sardaar (leader) of a gang of dacoits, he is down and beaten, by Dharmendra. Even in that scene, he exudes strength, and gives the perception of being the stronger.

Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 22

(1970s Unreleased – Duet)

Quite a coincidence today. This duet that I selected for this episode of the series, got inadvertently connected with an anniversary .

An amazing creation, this duet is. Film is ‘Sweetheart’, also from the early 1970s. The creators of this song are more familiar. The words are penned by Anand Bakshi and the music is created by Kalyanji Anandji. This film was launched with quite a filmi buzz, with the lead pair of Shashi Kapoor and Asha Parekh. I have some memory of reading something – maybe a promotional article, likely in the Filmfare magazine, way back then. Eventually, this film did not get done. The songs did get recorded. As per Geet Kosh, four songs are identified and probably more may exist. The list of songs is impressive, especially this duet and a solo by Mukesh (yet to be posted here). I remember these songs were played occasionally on the radio. It never did strike me that this film did not get released. As I checked the listings while preparing this series, I was a bit surprised to see this name in the list of unreleased films.

Chaandni raaten – Song no. 13
———————————

So we reach no. 13. This unlucky no. is lucky in this case because I thought of looking for this song which I had forgotten. It was a much liked song in its time. And it fits the theme of ‘chaandni raaten’ like a glove.

Rafi Sb – In The Seventies – 20

(1980 – Duet)

A brief and approximate view of the numbers from Rafi Sb’s career. I am basing this view on the data available in the Rafi Song list, and from browsing of the Geet Kosh. In the 1940s, starting from 1945 and upto 1950, his film songs number less than 200, approximately in the range of 165 to 170. Then in the 1950s, this number rises dramatically. An approximation is 1370 film songs in that decade. In the 1960s, we see a further improvement in this number – the approximate number of songs as per records is 1500, plus or minus 10. As we come into the 70s, there is a drop in this number. The records show that there are approximately 1025 songs in the decade from 1971 to 1980. I would like to add that these numbers also include the known songs from unreleased films, i.e. songs that were recorded for films, but the films either did not get made or were not released.
