THE VIBRANT 40s (Episode No. 7)
————————————-
Mere Talent is not enough to make one famous and successful. You must also have Lady Luck with you. While it is true in general,it is even more so in case of our Film Industry.

It is said that LAXMI and SARASWATI do not stay together. Laxmi is the Goddess for Wealth and Saraswati stand for Arts, music and Wisdom. We have seen several examples of Actors, singers, Directors and composers, who despite being talented failed to make it in life and had to remain unhonoured and unrecognised. But we have also seen cases where genuinely talented people in various fields do get honoured, recognised and become wealthy too.

So, what is the factor that brings Laxmi and Saraswati together ? It is , Undoubtedly, LUCK ! Without Luck, no one can get name, fame and wealth, however talented he may be.

On the other end of the spectrum, we have cases where Luck ensured success on a platter for some, but instead of being thankful for their good fortune and holding on to that, these people began to behave in a manner that ensured that people as well as luck decided to desert them. As a result, the same people who had the world eating out of their hands in their prime lost everything and they spent their last days in neglect and penury.

Yes, there are such examples in Film Industry. One such example is that of Music Director SHYAM SUNDER. ( Another notable example is that of SAJJAD HUSAIN). Songs composed by Shyamsunder are one of my most favourite ones. His songs from Nai kahani, Bazar, Lahore and Village girl are remembered to this day. Bazar -49 song, ” Saajan ki galiyan ” is Lata’s No. 1 favourite song( so is mine ! ). The 6 songs of Noorjehan in Village Girl-45 are simply matchless.

Shyamsunder himself was a highly respected and preferred composer for singers and producers. he had the capacity to scale heights much higher than other composers of his times that time. But…Alas ! The habit of drinking and talking rubbish when drunk destroyed his career. Here is an anecdote that shows how much respected and remembered he was by the Ace singers like Noorjehan and Lata Mangeshkar…

Thirty five years after the partition and two wars between India and Pakistan; in the year 1982 the melody queen, Malika-e-Tarannum Noorjehan visited India. It was certainly a grand occasion for millions of music lovers of Indian sub-continent.

In her honour and to facilitate nostalgic music lovers, an impressive show was organized in Sanmukhanad Hall, Bombay which was attended by a large number of luminaries of Indian cinema. Notable amongst were- Anil Biswas, Naushad, the maestro music composers and matinee idols- Devika Rani, Ashok Kumar, Dilip Kumar and nightingale of India Lata Mangeshkar to name a few.

Noorjehan came to the dais with a thunderous applause from the jam-packed auditorium and after a brief speech; as expected, she sang her most popular melody- ‘Awaaz de kahan hei, dunian meri jawan hei’ she recorded in India for film ‘Anmol Ghadi’ -Music was composed by Naushad.

Thereafter, it was Lata to sing, who found herself in a very difficult situation owing to a completely charged atmosphere all around the auditorium. She kept every one guessing about the selection of her song.

Lata came out with one of her endearing melodies- ‘Saajan ki galian chhod chaley, dil roya aansoo beh na sakey’ from the film ‘Bazaar’, music for which was composed by Shyam Sunder. The applause was beyond imagination. The memory of the completely forgotten genius music director Shyam Sunder came alive, when in her next round Noorjehan sang– ‘Baithee hun teri yaad ka ley karkey sahara’ another immortal melody from the film- ‘Village Girl’, music for which was composed by none other than Shyam Sunder.

The audience was left spell bound. Every one wondered why she chose a completely forgotten Indian melody instead of a large number of songs she recorded in Pakistan after migrating from her performing place of origin- Bombay. Perhaps, it was in view of the fact that the singer and the composer of the film ‘Village Girl’ were from Punjab.

The momentous event continued with lots of nostalgic and tearfulexchanges and it became a history in the annals of pre and post partition Indian art, culture, music and all such related aspects of humane

This music director had composed music for ‘Village Girl’- 1945, ‘Devkanya’ 1946, ‘Actress’ and ‘Ek Pal’-1947, ‘Bazaar’ and ‘Lahore’- 1949, ‘Dholak’, ‘Kale Badal and Alif Laila’ -1951 just to name a few. And still, he has been by and large forgotten by now.

In the year 1943, he composed music for film ‘Nai Kahani’. An alluring song of G.M. Durani and others–‘Neend hamari khwab tumhary, kitney meethy kitney pyary’ which became an instant hit. Even today after a gap of more than sixty years, the melody richly deserves an eloquent place in the list of popular melodies of yesteryears.

In his next film ‘Village Girl’ -1945, Shyam Sunder came with flying colours, wherein Noorjehan sang some of her fabulous melodies viz–‘Baithi hoon teri yaad mein ley karkey sahara’, ‘Kis tarah bhulega dil’ and ‘Sajan pardesi, balam pardesi’.

For Shyam Sunder, after the exit of Noorjehan from Indian film music, there came the film ‘Actress’ in the year 1948, wherein Mohammad Rafi introduced himself to music lovers by singing – ‘Hum apne dil ka fasana unhein suna na sakey’.

Shyam Sunder’s career and fortunes can be matched with another maestro called Sajjad Husain, who also composed music for just 14 films, but composed some of the finest melodies of his era.

Both the masters were highly perfectionists; but ill-tempered and uncompromising. Moreover, Shyam Sunder was addiction to liquor as well and tended to use abusive language while drunk. During the making of the film ‘Lahore’, he had some abusive interaction with Lata Mangeshkar; as such, they were not on talking terms for a considerable time.

In the year 1952, when the film- ‘Alif Laila’ was in the making, Shyam Sunder died in the recording studio, owing to excessive drinking and consequent heart attack; the music of the movie was completed by his assistant- Madan Mohan.

Shyamsunder was born in Multan (now in Pakistan).He was an expert Violin player and used to play in Jhande Khan’s orchestra in the early stage of his career. He started with Punjabi films from 1939. he gave break to Mohd. Rafi in Punjabi film ‘Gul Baloch’. Nai kahani-41 was the beginning of his bright career and village girl-45,Lahore-49 and Bazar-49 were his pinnacle. Strangely, Shyamsunder was determined to become an actor and singer initially. he did some roles and sang songs in films.

Fortunately, he realised that he was not cut out to be an actor and singer and began to concentrate on composing music giving us some memorable songs. Due to his spat with Lata, she had stopped singing for him, but on his request she sang a song in his last film, Alif Laila-1953. She knew his calibre as a composer !

VILLAGE GIRL (1945),produced by Ramanik Production was a very entertaining movie and was a good grosser. Directed by K.Amarnath, its cast was-Noor Jehan, M.Nazir, Jagadish Sethi, Durga Khote, Rama Shukul, Anant Marathe, Rajkumari Shukla, Rajkumari Kapoor, Bikram Kapoor, F.M.Khan etc.

The story was that Jaani (M.Nazir) is a vagabond and his mother(Durga Khote) suffers due to his misdeeds. Once he goes to neighbouring village and meets Bibbo(Noor Jehan).They fall in love. One Hari(Jagdish Sethi) is also loving her. He gives a loan to her father. Jaani wants to reform and starts doing kheti, but Hari gets him arrested for a theft and murder. Jaani is freed after Bibbo helps to find the murderer. Jaani goes and joins Army. When he comes back Bibbo is about to marry Hari. It is then proved that Hari has impregnated another girl and then everything is fine with Bibbo Marrying Jaani.
The film was so successful that after migrating to Pakistan, M.Nazir remade the film in Punjabi titled ” Pherey ” in 1949. This too was successful and became the first Silver jubilee film of Pakistan.

Let us now enjoy this actual marching song from this film,in which the hero has joined Army. The voices are of G.M.Durrani and chorus.

Nainin se naina milaa (Song no. 15)
————————————-

It is almost a week since the song no. 14 of the series was posted. The wait has been fruitful. The series is extended by one more song, and now it will have 16 songs.

The fifteenth song presented here is from the film ‘Pakshiraaj’ (1959). S. N. Tripathi is the music director and lyrics are written by Qamar Jalaalabaadi. This is another Lata solo. The lyrics of this song in English and Hindi are contributed by Sudhir Kapoor Sir.

No song from this film is posted in the blog. The search on the net revealed only the name of Nirupa Roy as the cast. The information provided by the uploader is Manhar Desai, Nirupa Roy, Ulhas, Shalini, Anant Marathe. As only audio link is available,it is difficult to say on whom it is picturized. I have heard the song again now, it sounds a Nirupa Roy kind of song, judging by Lata’s voice too.

This is an enjoyable happy sounding song by Lata Mangeshkar.

Here is an interesting extract from the songs three stanzas.

meethi meethi batiyon mein kho gayi main
dhoondh rahe nain mere ik nishaana
waah re teri preet piyaa dil liyaa aur bhaage
kya kahoon aage


Song-Piya torey nainwa se nain morey laage (Pakshiraaj)(1959) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Qamar Jalalabadi, MD-S N Tripathi

Lyrics(Provided by Sudhir)

torey bina piyaa mora jiyaa nahin laage
kya kahoon aage

ahaa ahaa mastiyon ka ye zamaana
dhoondh rahe nain mere ik nishaana
ahaa ahaa mastiyon ka ye zamaana

tu nahin to teer mera bol kahaan laage

phoolon se seekhaa maine muskuraana
bhanwron se seekhaa toone dil churaana
phoolon se seekhaa main ne muskuraana
bhanwaron se seekhaa toone dil churaana

waah re teri preet piyaa
dil liyaa aur bhaage

ho kya kahoon aage
hoye
piya torey
piya torey nainwaa se nain morey laage
kya kahoon aage

Time to take stock of the first decade of Mukesh songs – from 1941 to 1950. We have not yet seen each and every song from this period yet, but the pending numbers are very few now, and somewhat difficult to get, especially get good and clear recordings.

THE VIBRANT 40s (Episode No. 6)
———————————

CREDIBILITY is certainly a valuable virtue and a treasure to possess. Our parents enjoy a high credibility quotient with us. Anything told by them was accepted without a doubt or a question.(This is,of course,in olden days). We respect people with credibility. Books like Dictionaries and Encyclopedias carry the highest credibility. Does anyone question the meaning of words in a Dictionary ? Certainly not ! Likewise Encyclopedias too give credible information.

My timing is somewhat off-key these days. So much else is dragging my attention that I am missing to hit the dates, even though I have planned it in advance. With due apologies to Atul ji. :) He is aware of at least two missed dates in this year, where the write ups are almost done, but could not be completed in time. Some of these dates are overdue so much that it does not make good sense to post them, rather better to wait for the next opportune moment.

And so wrote the scribe. . .

ho raama darr laage apni umariyaa se

Howsoever enchanting and inviting the emotions of love may seem, there are many a heart that fear the onset. As the feelings of youth begin to sprout inside, the heart is at once both eager to savor the flavors of this emotion, and yet nervous and afraid to step into this unfamiliar and unpredictable terrain. The mind recalls many a stories told of the agonies of love and the pains of loss. Or even if one does not become frightened from such tales of sorrow, there still is a fear of the unfamiliar and the unknown.

THE VIBRANT 40s (Episode No. 5)
————————————–
” Haazir so Vazir ” and ” Out of sight is out of mind ” are two well known proverbs which describe the Hindi film industry. Those who are in the limelight- for whatever reasons- are the talk of the town. Those who are not heard about, seen or spoken about are not remembered, whatever their contribution to the industry. This is the experience of of almost every film personality who retired and spent time away from the industry till their end.

What may be a good definition of a friend? I am sure everyone will have many an answer to this question. I would like to add this following definition to that list today. A good friend is one who will remind you of a wonderful melodious song, that you may have heard long back, and have forgotten about it, or maybe you have not heard it and he or she introduced you to it. Aa ha, I am sure you will agree with me on this. :)
