The stock photograph that is available shows a very suave and handsome Sikh gentleman.  The beard is neatly packed, the moustache is starched razor sharp, and the turban is a perfect construct.  Six feet plus, with a very fair skin – all attributes put together make up a very attractive and becoming personality.  By his own admission, he labels himself to be a romantic – and that he had to be in love to be able to create music.  The others called him a “ladies man”.

Remembering Sardul Kwatra on the anniversary of his passing away today (6th July).

As I am checking out the details about him today, I find that his last place of stay was in Fremont in California, USA.  He passed away in 2004.  And I am thinking, this was another missed opportunity. 2001 onwards, I was in San Jose, California.  That placed me about 10 miles away from where this gentleman would have resided.  (The other missed opportunity was SD Batish, who lived in Santa Cruz, which was about forty miles from San Jose).  Only if I had known in good time.

About 20 films in a little over two decades, plus a similar number of Punjabi films – is the portfolio of the music that he has created for the Indian cinema.  As one explores the Geet Kosh for his films, one finds that much like Vinod, Sardul Kwatra was also mostly confined to B/C grade films, with titles like ‘Pipili Saheb’ (1954), ‘Kaala Chashma’ (1962), ‘Tees Maar Khan’ (1955), ‘Gypsy Girl’ (1961), ‘Dekha Jaayega’ (1960), and ‘Air Mail’ (1960) to his credit.  With ‘Goonj’ (1952) and ‘Mirza Saahiban’ (1957), it seemed as if he has broken into the grade A cinema.  But in reality, it was not to be.  (A detailed write up on his life and career can be found with the song “Aa Gaye Aa Gaye Aa Gey Jinko Dekh Ke Sharmaaun” from film ‘Goonj’.)

This song is from the 1959 film ‘Lady Robinhood’.  This obscure and forgotten film carries a repertoire of really attractive songs.  Three (out of six) songs are already showcased here.  Today I present this fourth song from this film.  It is a very interesting presentation.  The poetry form is a ghazal, but the music director has designed the singing as a short qawwaali, with short and very meaningful verses.  The singing voice is that of Nirmala Devi accompanied by chorus voices. The singing is enamoring. Nirmala ji’s voice sounds very keenly young and eager.

The words of this wonderful song are from the pen of Shakee Nomani.  This name is not new to the readers of this blog – there are 10 songs already posted here that have been written by him.  More interesting is the statistics about Sardul Kwatra himself. As per Geet Kosh, the number of songs that have been composed by him come to around 130; i.e. Hindi films only.  Our blog so far has representations only from 26 of his songs.  Which means we still have over a hundred songs to post for this ‘ladies man’ music director.

Till we get to that milestone, let us enjoy this song.

Mukesh and his Composers – 3
———————————
The off-screen romance between Dev Anand and Suraiyya was well known. On-screen, if there was any song which symbolized the relationship it was this romantic duet from Vidya 1948 sung by Mukesh and Suraiyya.

Hold on. Mukesh giving playback for Dev Anand?. Well, yes, there were 3 occasions in which this rarity occurred. A solo and a duet in Vidya and a duet in Shair with Lata under Ghulam Mohammed.

The composer who brought the romance on screen was S D Burman. The duet was a huge craze amongst young budding lovers in those days. The philosophical solo in Vidya may not be very well known. But, this beautifully written song by Yashodanandan Joshi is a pleasure to listen to with some excellent verses. The trio of Mukesh, S D Burman and Dev Anand worked only in this movie.

The next year 1949, S D Burman reinforced the Mukesh magic, this time for Dilip Kumar in Shabnam wherein Mukesh sang 3 duets with Shamshad Begum and 1 with Geeta Dutt. The year 1949 as we all know was a threshold year as far as music is concerned. It had several great composers, lyric writers and singers come together for some huge and very popular hits. And, for S D Burman to stick his neck out in this year speaks volumes of his talent which was very much evident in the latter years. The duets of Shabnam were very popular during their days. So you have 6 songs of the combo in two years.

And then there is the unfortunate and familiar story with which I have bound these three posts. S D Burman forgets Mukesh for 11 years till 1960. Not a trace in the entire fifties.

S No. Name of the song Name of the film (year of release) Co singer if any Lyricist
1 Bahe na kabhi nain se neer Vidya(1948) Yashonandan Joshi
2 Layi khushi ki duniya Vidya(1948) Suraiyya Anjum Pilibhiti
3 Tumhare liye huye badnaam Shabnam (1949) Shamshad Begam Qamar Jalalabadi
4 Tu mehlon mein rehne waali Shabnam (1949) Shamshad Begam Qamar Jalalabadi
5 Pyaar mein tumne dhokha seekha Shabnam (1949) Shamshad Begam Qamar Jalalabadi
6 Kismat mein bichhadna thha Shabnam (1949) Geeta Dutt Qamar Jalalabadi
7 Chal ri sajni ab kya soche Bambai Ka Babu (1960) Majrooh Sultanpuri
8 Ae dil-e-awara chal Dr Vidya(1962) Majrooh Sultanpuri
9 O jaanewaale ho sakey to laut ke aana Bandini(1963) Shailendra
10 Ye kisne geet chheda Meri Soorat Teri Aankhen(1963) Suman Kalyanpur Shailendra
11 Baagon mein ye kaise phool khilte hain Chupke Chupke(1975 Lata Anand Bakshi
12 * Tu Shaitaanon ka sardaar hai Baarood(1976 Shivaangi Kolhapure Anand Bakshi

S D Burman, during these fifties, relied on Mohammed Rafi, Kishore Kumar, Manna Dey, Talat Mahmood etc, but not Mukesh. Yet, when this recording from Bambai ka Babu came up in 1960, Kishore Kumar was either unavailable or expressed his unwillingness to sing such a “bidai” song. S D Burman himself an accomplished singer, however, decided to bring in Mukesh and that too with a warning that the song would be excluded if it was not up to the mark. Today if there is any reason for which the film is remembered, then it’s for this great rendering by Mukesh.

Two years later, again, a single solo from Bandini had all the Mukesh midas touch attached to it. No compilation of Mukesh is ever complete without either or both of the above songs by S D Burman.

From 1960 to 1976, you have 6 songs, which was the exact number in only two years in 1948-49.

Out of these twelve songs, eleven have already been posted on the blog. Here is the final song of the combo on the blog. It’s from the film “Barood” released in 1976. It is directed by Pramod Chakravorty and the star cast includes Rishi Kapoor, Reena Roy, Shoma Anand etc.

The song itself is very good kids song pictured on Shriram Lagoo & Master Raju. Shivange Kolhapure sings for the kid, whereas Mukesh gives playback for Shriram Lagoo.
(PS-The lyrics of this song were sent by Avinash Scrapwala ages ago.)

I hope this song brings back fond memories of the past for many of the readers.

In the next post, we shall see the collaboration of Mukesh with C Ramchandra.


Song-Tu shaitaanon ka sardaar hai (Baarood)(1976) Singers-Mukesh, Shivangi Kolhapure, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-S D Burman

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 23
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘Aankhen’ was released in 1950.  Most people remember it for being the debut film of music director Madan Mohan.  Amongst all the wonderful songs that caught the attention of the listeners, there is this lovely melody in the voice of Meena Kapoor, that really steals away your heart – “Mori Atariya Pe Kaaga Bole, Mora Jiya Doley, Koi Aa Rahaa Hai”.  For me, it is this one song that makes this film and its music memorable.  This is one of the two songs that Bharat Vyas wrote for this film.

Remembering Bharat Vyas on the anniversary of his passing away (5th July).

By the time this song reached the listeners in 1950, Bharat ji had already clocked seven years in the industry, having made his debut in 1943 with the film ‘Duhaai’.  Born in 1918, he was twenty five years old on this debut. The years may sound young, but the young Bharat already had a world of literary experience behind him.  Originally from Churu in Rajasthan, there is a significant influence of the Rajasthani dialects in his writings, as well as the traditions of valor and sacrifice find a prominent place.  As a school going child, he had interest in stage dramas and acting, and used to participate in the local Ramlila celebrations.  He started writing poetry at a very young age. While still a teenager, he composed the famous poem “Kesariya Pagdi Bani Rahe”, which went on to find a place of honor as a song in the film ‘Jai Chittor’ of 1961.

After completing his Matric from Churu, the young Bharat came to Calcutta to pursue his studies for B.Com.  Of course his creativity kept pace with him. He started participating in the local ‘Kavi Sammelans’, and started to write songs for music companies.  His song “Aao Veero Hilmil Gaayen Vande Maatram” captured the then current emotions in the country, and became very popular.  The time was late 1930s.  The stage theatre scene in Calcutta was very active.  Inspired by the environment, he wrote a Rajasthani stage play ‘Ramu Chananaa’, complete with dialogues and songs, in a single night sitting.  More plays followed, and the young creator became a popular writer figure on the Calcutta literary scene.  In case you wonder how do Rajasthani/ Marwaari language dramas fit into the Calcutta milieu, one must remember that Calcutta has probably the largest population of Marwaaris and other migrant families from Rajasthan.

The second world war happened.  The threat of Japanese invasion from the east made a number of artists and other people move out of Calcutta.  The young Bharat came to Bombay in the early 1940s, and immediately plunged into the literary activities in the city.  Once again, he became a regular and a popular participant at the local Kavi Sammelans.  His songs and poetry started finding place in the programs of All India Radio.  With so much literary involvement, it was but natural for him to get connected with the film industry.  And so he made his film debut in 1943.  Film producers like V Shantaram, Bimal Roy and Vijay Bhatt were influenced by his poetry, and he became a regular songwriter for their films.  It is going to be redundant to start listing his creations from 1940s and 1950s.  But I will surely mention that classic song from the 1957 film ‘Do Aankhen Baraah Haath’ that has gone beyond the epithets of ‘iconic’ and ‘timeless’ – “Ae Maalik Tere Bande Hum” has found its way into the cultural DNA of this land.  I am pleasantly surprised and moved to find this song listed on a website that celebrates Urdu poetry, calling it out as one of the best spiritual creations in the Urdu language.  For a writer whose roots are in the Rajasthani dialect, and whose writings are known for their chaste Hindi content, this recognition exemplifies the breadth and depth of his writings.

A brief sampling of the films which are embellished with his songs – ‘Parineeta’ (1953), ‘Toofaan Aur Diya” (1956), ‘Do Aankhen Baraah Haath’ (1957), ‘Fashion’ (1957), ‘Janam Janam Ke Pher’ (1957), ‘Suvarna Sundari’ (1958), ‘Samrat Chandragupt’ (1958), ‘Rani Roopmati’ (1959), ‘Goonj Uthi Shehnaai’ (1959), ‘Navrang’ (1959), ‘Bedard Zamaana Kya Jaane’ (1960), ‘Kavi Kalidas’ (1960), ‘Veer Durgadas’ (1960), ‘Angulimaal’ (1960), ‘Chandramukhi’ (1960), ‘Saaranga’ (1960), ‘Jai Chittor’ (1961), ‘Piya Milan Ki Aas’ (1961), ‘Stree’ (1961), ‘Pyar Ki Pyas’ (1961), ‘Kan Kan Mein Bhagwan’ (1963), ‘Sati Savitri’ (1964), ‘Sant Gyaneshwar’ (1964), ‘Boond Jo Ban Gayi Moti’ (1967).  As I said, a brief sampling only. The mention of each film name immediately brings to mind the songs these films are famous for.  That is the writing prowess of this exemplary poet.

He passed away in 1982, after a brief illness.

This song is such a wonderful memory from the radio listening days.  The tickler for this post was sent in by dear Prakash ji, who has also provided the lyrics.  The film is ‘Saaranga’.  The music is by Sardar Malik and the singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar accompanied with chorus.  On screen, this song is presented as a folk dance, which is led by Jaishree Gadkar.  We can also see Sudesh Kumar in the video clip.  The words are exquisite.  Few poets have been able to write film songs that are adorned with the ‘alankaars’ in chaste Hindi.

chhote se ghooghat ke patt mein
ek roop kaa deep jalaaye

In fact the entire song is such an attractive composition in words, like a piece of alluring jewelry crafted by a master jeweler. What more to say; other than just to listen to this charming and earthy song in the folk genre, so beautifully crafted. Enjoy.

Atul often says that inspite of the blog having already clocked five-digit number of songs, there are still plenty of very good songs out there that have still not found their way to the blog.

In my opinion, that is not a bad thing, because it keeps our journey of discovery interesting and exciting. Compiling songs on this blog is as much about the journey as about the destination – and we take as much pleasure in the journey as in getting closer to our destination. We have milestones, minor and major, that keep beckoning to us to approach them – and as we pass each milestone, we not only celebrate it but also set our sights on the next one.

In a sense, this is no different from a long train journey. Each kilometer has to be covered, there are no shortcuts – but each scheduled stop is a minor milestone, each major junction is a major milestone – and when we pass one, we look forward to the next. Atul, more than anybody else, would totally identify with this analogy, I am sure. :-)

Coming to myself, as somebody who thoroughly enjoys a journey of discovery, I spend a lot of my time on youtube, just clicking on links of songs that I feel I have never heard before. Admittedly, they are mostly songs that are at least 40 years old but it is always done with a hope that underlying the link is an undiscovered gem. In a sense, this is pearl-diving on youtube. :-)

I was on one such mission a couple of days ago when I came across a Kishore da song that I had never heard before. Now there are many of his songs that I have never heard before, but this one stunned me. Not only because it is from the early 70s (an era that I felt I knew fairly well) but it is such a fabulously rendered song that I am surprised it is not rated higher among his gems. That I had never heard it before was very humbling, to say the least.

It also further underlined to me the voice that was Kishore Kumar in that period. This was 1972 – I was a young boy then and Kishore absolutely ruled the airwaves in those days. In every radio programme, on songs played on streets, you would hear his voice. Maybe, in an era spoilt for Kishore Kumar riches, this song just didn’t get noticed enough.

Then, as I always do, I immediately checked the blog to see if this song was already posted. The song is from the film Tanhaai (1972) – and I found not a single song of this film has been posted yet. I then decided that this had to be corrected immediately. Bahut na-insaafi hai! :-)

In general, I prefer to have seen a film whose songs I am posting. It tends to give some context to the song and the post.

So I looked for the film on youtube, found it and watched it last night.

Tanhaai (1972) is directed by Jagdish Nirula and produced by S.I. Shivdasani. It stars Anil Dhawan, Rehana Sultan, Shatrughan Sinha, Laxmi Chhaya, Junior Mehmood, Jagdev, Iftikhar, Poornima, Lalita Kumari among others.

I must say I quite liked the film, especially considering I had zero expectations at the start. :-) It is a film, typical of that period – the floral prints of Anil Dhawan’s and Shatrughan Sinha’s shirts are evidence of this. :-) And while there is nothing spectacular about the story, what I really liked about it is that it is a pleasant film, and therefore watchable. I watched it all the way, without getting bored.

The film also made me wonder why Rehana Sultan didn’t do better in the industry – I have only seen a few movies of hers, and she has been impressive in them all.

Anil Dhawan of course had more success – he was part of the a whole bunch of turn-of-the-decade newcomers (late 60s/early 70s) like Navin Nischol, Ajay Sahni, Vijay Arora, Rakesh Roshan, Vinod Mehra, Amitabh Bachchan and many others. That was a period of Rajesh Khanna dominance but this bunch managed a few successes between themselves. One of them went on to somewhat greater heights. :-)

While watching the film, I noticed that the other songs are not too bad either. But this particular one by Kishore, this one which made me watch the film in the first place, is my favourite.

I will not narrate the whole story here – some of you might want to watch it. Also, a warning. I get a bit nostalgic when I see a film of my childhood era, especially when I see signs like a SELVEL board on the side of the road. :-) So if you watch the film and don’t like it, don’t blame your wasted time on me. :-)

In any case, whether you enjoy the film or not, I am fairly confident you will enjoy this song. It was “love at first hear” for me. The song and picturisation do seem to be influenced by the success of “roop tera mastana” of Aradhana but it is surprising that the song didn’t get known a fraction as well. Or maybe I just missed hearing it before. Glad I found it at least now.

Song-Saawan mein kahin aag na lag jaaye chaman ko (Tanhaai)(1972) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Amanullah Khan Aman, MD-Usha Khanna

Lyrics

Bheege huye aanchal mein
sameto na badan ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko

Uljhi hui saansen hain
dhadakta hua seena
Hey
Uljhi hui saansen hain
dhadakta hua seena
Honthon pe dabee baat hai
maathe pe paseena
Hey hey
Khilti hai kali dekh ke
naazuk se behen(?) ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko

Ye madbhari tanhaai
ye tanhaai ka jaadoo
Hey
Ye madbhari tanhaai
ye tanhaai ka jaadoo
Aise mein bhala kaise ho
jazbaat pe kaaboo
Hey hey
Rangeen banaa lo
isi pal bhar ke milan ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko
Saawan mein kahin
aag na lag jaaye chaman ko

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 5
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Sometimes it so happens that some song is so well ingrained in memory that it appears as if, oh well, everyone must remember this song.  And further, it simply cannot be so that this song is not yet on the blog.  But then, surprises never cease, right?

This wonderful song is a keen memory from the childhood radio listening days.  As I am browsing through my collection of the 1960s, I come across the 1965 film ‘Sindbad, Alibaba, Alladin’.  The list of songs rang a few bells I just happened to check the list on the blog. Two songs from this film are absolute foot tappers.  One of them is already posted – “Mera Naam Jinny, Soney Ki Ginni”.  But this song, is still waiting to be showcased.  Well, here it is.

The Voice of Mukesh #68
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Such discoveries do not happen often. Finding unknown songs that one is not aware of.  Today is one such occasion, and this Mukesh song is one such song. And the credit for searching it out and sending it to me, goes to Mahesh ji Mamadapur.  A simple email from him yesterday – saying that he has found a song online that he cannot locate on the blog.  Since we have definitely covered and accounted for, all songs of Mukesh till the mid 1950s, how come this song from the 1948 film ‘Mera Munna’ does not appear on our blog?  I scrambled to check, and I found the following.

Recently, I read ‘In the Company of a Poet – Gulzar in Conversation with Nasreen Munni Kabir’ (2012). The book gives a bird’s eye view on the life of Gulzar – from setting his foot in Bombay (Mumbai) in mid-1950 to his continuing association with Bollywood. Before reading this book, I was under the impression that, like many others who came to Bombay to fulfill their aspirations to work in Bollywood, Gulzar was one of them. It was not so as revealed from his conversations in the book. Gulzar came to Bombay not by his own choice but as a part of his father’s plan to divide the financial responsibility of his large family following his post-partition migration from Dina (in Pakistan) to Delhi.

“Black Cat”(1959) was directed by N A Ansari. The movie had Balraj Sahni, Minu Mumtaz, N A Ansari, Johnny Walker, Mumtaz Begum, Shammi, Hari Shivdasani, Tun Tun etc in it. From the comments of our readers in earlier songs of this movie, it is known that it was a chor police movie where Balraj Sahni is the police and he is in love with Minu Mumtaz. It turns out that Minu Mumtaz’s brother, N A Ansari is the boss of a smuggling gang. His gang is named after his pet- a black cat.
