In my younger days, I used to identify Hyderabad with Nizams. For me Hyderabad and Nizamshahi were inseparable in the city’s history, developments and monuments. The establishment of Osmania University is one example among others of the contributions of Nizams in this region. It was only when I visited Hyderabad for the first time on a sightseeing trip in 1989, I became aware of the role of Qutub Shahi (also written as Qutb Shahi) dynasty in the development of Hyderabad. Of the 7 Sultans of Qutub Shahi dynasty that ruled from Golconda and later from Hyderabad, the reign of 5th Sultan, Mohammed Quli Qutub Shah was regarded as the golden period. During his rule, Charminar was constructed and a new capital across Musi River called Bhagnagar and later renamed as Hyderabad was established.

Purandara Dasa (148O- 1564) who is regarded as the father of Carnatic music was born in Karnataka. I find it somewhat paradoxical that Karnataka, the birthplace of the father of Carnatic music is also the birthplace of some of the most distinguished vocalists of Hindustani classical music. Most of them were born in the North Karnataka region. The prominent Hindustani vocalists from North Karnataka were Pandit Bhimsen Joshi (Gadag), Pandit Kumar Gandharv (Belgaum), Pandit Mallikarjun Mansur (Mansur, Dharwad), Sawai Gandharv (Dharwad), Gangubai Hangal (Dharwad), Shobha Gurtu (Belgaum), Pandit Dinkar Kaikini (Kaikini, Uttar Kannada) etc.

I had no idea about an obscure film TRIKON KA CHAUTHAA KON(1986) except the unusual title of the film when it was released. How can a triangle by itself have fourth angle. That was my pondering point. The title seems to be the indicative of a complicated story line of the film. I had completely forgotten about of this film until few days back when I came across one of the songs from this film. I liked the song and then I heard two other songs from the film which were also good. So I decided to watch this film which was available on YT.

SHATRANJ KE KHILAADI(1977) was Satyajit Ray’s first Hindi feature film which he directed with multi star cast from India and abroad. The film was based on a short story by the same name written by Munshi Premchand which I had read during my school days. I watched this film once again and I must say that I enjoyed the movie much more than I had seen it about 3 decades back. The film was produced by Suresh Jindal under the banner of Devki Chitra. The main actors in the film were Amjad Khan, Sanjeev Kumar, Saeed Jaffrey, Shabana Azmi, Farida Jalal, Victor Bannerji, Richard Attenborough, Tom Alter, Barry John, Farooque Shaikh, David Abraham, Veena etc. Amitaab Bachchan was the narrator of the film.

‘Mammo’ (1994), ‘Sardari Begum’ (1996) and ‘Zubeida’ (2OO1) were films of Muslim trilogy directed by Shyam Bengal. The main feature of these three films was that they were all woman oriented films based on real life stories. These films belonged to what is labelled as parallel cinemas. I have watched all the three films. Why these films are called trilogy? Let us go through in brief, the stories of each of the main characters in these films.

In our high school curriculum, we had Hindi Padhya (Poetry) in which, among others, poems of Meerabai, Tulsidas, Kabirdas, Surdas, Raskhan were taught to us. While most of the poems were in the praise of Lord Ram and Krishna, poems of Sant Kabirdas were not addressed to any specific God. I had heard the word ‘nirgun’ from my teacher in regard to the poems of Sant Kabirdas, I did not know the meaning of ‘nirgun’ in wider sense until few years back. Some of Dohas (two liners) have still remained in my memory. One of those which often come to my mind is:

Lata Mangeshkar has rendered songs under the batons of hundreds of Hindi film music directors. But some connoisseurs of Hindi film music are of the view that her combination with Anil Biswas, C Ramchandra and Madan Mohan produced many of her best songs from Hindi films. I feel that to this list, the name of music director Roshan should be added as Lata-Roshan combination churned out some of their best songs. Take for example, songs in ‘Malhaar’ (1951), ‘Hum Log’ (1951), ‘Raag Rang’ (1952), ‘Naubahaar’ (1952), ‘Taj Mahal’ (1963), ‘Chitralekha’ (1964), ‘Mamta’ (1966) to quote a few films. Some of her songs under the baton of Roshan may not have become as popular as that of her songs with Naushad and Shankar Jaikishan, but there is some uniqueness in her renditions under Roshan just as her renditions under Anil Biswas, C Ramchandra and Madan Mohan were unique.

In the course of my exercise on Mohammed Rafi’s playback singing career during 1944-50, I had browsed through some of his songs of the films of that period which I had never heard of. One of those films was ‘Jalte Deep’ (1950). As per the information available on the internet, the film was produced under the banner of Nihal Film Corporation and was directed by Deepak Asha (also known as Dharam Kumar). The star cast included Randheer, Nimmi, Amarnath, Kuldeep Kaur, Sofia, Leela Mishra etc. As per http://www.myswar.com, ‘Jalte Deep’ (1950) has 12 songs written by 3 lyricists –Aziz Kashmiri, Nazim Panipati and M A Taj. The songs were composed by Sardul Kwatra and T K Das.

It is generally believed that the playback singing career of Mohammed Rafi really took off on a sustainable basis after his songs in ‘Baiju Bawra’ (1952) became very popular. I had been carrying an impression that the year 1949 was a watershed in Rafi’s playback singing career. Probably I got this impression due to a number of his film songs I came across on YT released in 1949. To check my ‘hypothesis’, I have attempted an exercise on Rafi’s Hindi film songs during 1944-50. The starting year 1944 was taken as Mohammed Rafi got his first song as a playback singer in 1944. The end year was selected as 1950 just to know as to what was Rafi’s performance as a playback singer after 1949 which is the year I believe to be an important year in shaping his career graph.
