BOMBAY has always been an attraction for outsiders. It is a Dream-City for most people coming from other states. Not every one’s dreams are realised,but it does provide opportunities. Then it is your luck and efforts, which will either make you or break you. This is not only about Film line but people from all walks of like look at Bombay this way.It started from the 17th Century when Bombay was just a cluster of undeveloped islands. In the 18th and 19th century Bombay developed into a Metropolitan city, having a majority of people from outside. Bombay Gazette of 1885 says that , out of a total population of 10 lakhs, almost 9 lakhs were outsiders, i.e, Non-Natives. A Minority of Britishers ruled the majority for a long time.

THE VELVET MAGIC- TALAT DUETS….Song No. 2
———————————————–
Today’s song is a duet of Talat and Lata, from the film ‘Meharbani-50′. The film makes a debut on the Blog with this song.

The Music Director of this film was HAFIZ KHAN. Now, this name is a case of “Same Name Confusion” with many people. There were Two composers of the same name, active in the same time period. There was one Hafiz Khan singer, who was given the nick name of Mastana by his senior Meer Sahib. Hafiz Khan Mastana was essentially a singer. He sang in Hindi films from 1938 to 1959 in over 100 films singing about 200 songs, according to one source. He also gave music to 24 Hindi films, from 1940 to 1952. He also acted in 5 films.

The Music Director Hafiz Khan of today’s song, was a trained expert Sarangiya (Sarangi Player) from Lahore. His first film as a composer was Zeenat-1945. The other composers with him here were Meer Sahib and Rafiq Gaznavi. This film’s music became famous because of the First ever All female qawali “Aahen na bhari,shikwe na kiye” in it. Hafiz Khan had also composed 4 melodious songs in this film. He gave music to Zeenat-45, Humjoli-46, Meharbani-50, Lakeeren-54, Mera salaam-57 and his last film Shareef Daku-60.

The lines of this song “dil deewaana dil mastaana maane na” may remind most music lovers of the “Maine Pyaar Kiya” (1989) song that goes “dil deewaana bin sajna ke maane na”. The song “dil deewaana dil mastaana maane na” is not from that movie though. It is from a much older movie viz. “Aawaaz” (1956) and it is regarded as a timeless classic.

During the early 70s when I got interested in Hindi film songs of the golden era. I had heard from my seniors in this field talking about singers, music directors and lyricists of 30s and 40s with some anecdotes. While, I had almost forgotten many of the unfamiliar names over a period of time until the advent of the internet technology, one of very few names which firmly remained in my mind was that of D N Madhok. From their discussions, I had then realised that he must have been an influential lyricist of his time. He was stated to be one of very few lyricists of that time who used to give lyrics to music director with tunes. While this may be a boon for the struggling music directors, my guess is that the established and self-respecting music directors must have surely resented his ‘value addition’ to the lyrics. One of the music directors of the 40s ( I am not very sure but it was probably Shyam Sundar) had a tiff with him on this issue and he never worked with him.

During my ‘crazy’ days of collecting 78 RPM gramophone records of rare gems of old Hindi films songs, I realised that there were many old Hindi films of early 50s whose gramophone records in 78 RPM format were not available at all. Some of the songs of such films were “sajaan ki ot leke” (Zevaraat, 1949), “yaad aane waale kyon yaad aa rahe hain” (Anmol Ratan, 1950), “preetam meri duniyaa mein do din to rahe hote” (Adaa, 1951), “baandh preeti phool dor” (Malti Madhav, 1951), “main saagar ki mast lahar” (Dhuaan, 1953), “bhool jaa sapne suhaane bhool jaa” (Rajdhani, 1956) etc. I had spent long hours in some of the prominent record shops in Mumbai for buying gramophone records of these and other rare songs but did not succeed at all. Those days, EPs/LPs records had made their presence in the records shops and these were displayed on the front side of the shops while 78 RPM records were relegated to the far end of the shops. In some shops, 78 RPM records were stored in ante-rooms full of dust.
