Today’s song is from a 1957 film-AGRA ROAD.

When I first thought of this series, I had planned to discuss one song from each year of the 50’s decade and wind up after 10 songs. But when I actually started the spade work,I came across so many songs from so many films that I had to curtail songs from the long list. Still, the number stood at 20 songs. A series with more than 10 to 15 songs really becomes monotonous for me to write the articles. My articles contain information about at least 2 to 3 persons,matters or happenings and it requires research,references and collection of data etc. Since I insist on writing only that which I can defend,should a controversy arise,i can not stretch my imagination alone to write the articles.

The days of comedians having a special role with well defined characters and a pivotal role in the main story of the film or parallel story were well and truly over by early 70’s. This is especially true about actors like Mehmood and Johnny Walker. They had a meaty role as well a heroine to sing songs with. One or two songs were a must for them in every film they starred. I really think there should a separate tag of category for this extinct species of comic actor. A tag for “Mehmood song” and “Johnny walker song” will not look out of place in a blog like this.

In Hindi movies, most artists tend to get typed cast and most people can only visualise one standard kind of performance from them. When it comes to Hindi movie music, for instance, what kind of music does one expect when Bharat Vyas is the lyricist and S N Triptahi is the music director ? We expect songs that are either bhajans or semi classical songs.

“Pyaase Panchhi” (1960) is a rather B grade movie where Mehmood was the hero opposite Ameeta. Going by the fact that Mehmood subsequently made his mark not as a hero but as a comedian, it appears to me that this movie may not have done well at the box office.

Though I have vaguely heard of this movie called “Apradhi Kaun”, I was not much aware of what this movie was all about. I just stumbled upon its songs and that got me interested in this movie.
