Today is the birth anniversary of C.Ramchandra, one of the Best Music Directors the Hindi film industry had. He has left us long back, but his iconic songs live on, giving us pleasure even today and they will continue to do so in future as well, no matter what the current generation likes. Looking at the Remixes of C Ramchandra’s famous songs like, “Mere piya gaye Rangoon”, or “Sunday ke Sunday”, or even “Gore gore,o baanke chhore”, it is certain that his songs have a magical spell even over New Generations !

This is a fun video dance-cum-song from film Labela-66, featuring Master Bhagwan and Kumkum in the scene.

I am discussing a song from the 1960s after a long time. Even the last song of 1960s discussed by me had come after a long gap. Songs from the 1960s, especially from the latter half of the decade were not to my taste as much as I relish songs from the earlier years. I have selected today’s song for the purpose of discussing the life and career events of Master Bhagwan showing his other less known side.

SHANKAR-JAIKISHEN IN THE 50s…..Song No. 10…Last song of the series
————————————————————————
We have come to the end of this series.

Shankar-Jaikishen gave us tremendous pleasure by providing some exceptional melodies and iconic songs during the decade of 1950s. All in all, Hindi film music could be considered to be at its zenith during 1950s. Masters like Naushad, C.Ramchandra, Shankar Jaikishan, Hemant Kumar, Ravi, Roshan, Chitragupta and many more composers regaled us with their best songs during this decade. The dream run of the decade of 50s ended like all dreams and the HFM started going downwards from then onwards. HF M Somehow kept up thefreshness and sweetness of their melodies till the latter half of the 60s. With the changing pattern of the public taste and the sociological changes in the Indian societies, thestress became more on instant satiation rather than lasting satisfaction. This led to songs which became popular for a few months and were then forgotten after that. The period of remaining in public memory went on reducing and today’s songs hardly stay in memory for a month or so ( exceptions excepted).

SHANKAR- JAIKISHEN IN THE 50s…Song No. 8
———————————————-

Should an actor working as a Hero be necessarily good looking ? In India, yes ! If one sees the list of heroes from 1931 till recent time, one will find that on 99% of the occasions, the Heroes were handsome, good looking,tall and with good physique- irrespective of whether they could act or not. Not that there were no heroes who were ordinary looking, but by and large they were exceptions or they were the producers or directors themselves ( like Kishore Sahu ) or their sons etc. The Indian audience had a mind set that a film Hero must be good looking and the Heroine must be beautiful-preferably.

SHANKAR-JAIKISHEN IN THE 50s…Song No- 7
———————————————
The Lovers of old Hindi film music are spread all over the world in almost all countries of all the continents. It is not an exaggeration. Youngsters of the decade of the 60s and the 70s, who migrated to different countries, must be in their 60s and 70s now. They all are lovers of old music. They not only loved that music,but with the help of 78 RPM Records,Tapes and later with CDs, they kept the music alive even today. Let any famous singer got to any country for a stage show, the audience farmaishes are for old songs only. No show is successful without singing old songs.

SHANKAR-JAIKISHEN IN THE 50s…Song No. 6
———————————————
The mid 50s was a period when one could see the deep impact of the Nehruvian socialism on the film that were made. Great film makers like Mehboob Khan, B R Chopra and Raj Kapoor tried to support Nehru and Gandhian philosophies through their films. Being great artists, they combine socialism with entertainment in a skillful way. Films like Naya Daur, Mother India, Jagte Raho, Phir subah hogi, Do bigha Zameen,Boot polish,Ab dilli door nahin etc and later on films like Son of India and Naya Kanoon etc clearly indicated Socialism.
