Before the advent of cinemas in India, Parsi theatres played the role of a catalyst for transmitting social, historical, political and religious messages to the people at large. The owners of theatres were rich and educated Parsis. Alfred Theatrical Company of Bombay (Mumbai) and Madan Theatres Ltd. in Calcutta (Kolkata) were two of the prominent theatre companies. With the successful staging of some of the plays by these two theatre companies, the audience from all the strata of the society and of different religious background started patronising the plays. The themes of the plays were diversified to cater the needs of the audience. With this, the theatre companies were always looking for play writers and stage actors.

A young sarangiya (sarangi player) from Lahore becomes the sarangi accompanist to some of the female singers such as Inayatbai, Hirabai, Akhtaribai (Begum Akhtar) etc in their concerts in the late 1920s for a living. In such concerts, he also sings thumris composed by his uncle as fillers during breaks.

The lyricist, the music director and the singer are the trinity who are involved in the making of film songs, making their own contributions in popularising the song. However, right from the early days of talkies films 1931, the lyricists have remained in the shadows of music directors and singers. I have some 78 RPM records of films of 40s which do not contain the names of lyricists. Even All India Radio and Radio Ceylon (Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation) rarely used to announce the name of the lyricists while airing Hindi film songs.

Muzaffar Ali is one of the few Hindi filmmakers who spearheaded what was known as parallel cinemas during 70s and 80s. He came into the scene of parallel cinemas when some of the films under this tag such as Mrinal Sen’s ‘Bhuvan Shome’ (1969), Mani Kaul’s ‘Uski Roti’ (1969), Kumar Sahani’s ‘Maya Darpan’ (1972), M S Sathyu’s ‘Garam Hawa’ (1973), Shyam Bengal’s ‘Ankur’ (1974) etc were critically acclaimed. Being low budget films, some of these films fared well at the box office.

hamri atariya pe aajaa re saanwariya dekha dekhi tanik hoi jaaye

This is the mukhda of the song from the film ‘Dedh Ishqiyaa’ (2014) which I partly heard for the first time during the promotion of the film on various TV channels in December 2013. I was very happy that in the era of Hindi film music where loud songs with high velocity instrumentation and the meaningless lyrics are the order of the day, this semi-classical song had also found a place in the scheme of things of the modern day movie makers.

There has been a close relationship between Urdu/Hindi poets and Hindi film industry especially after the advent of talkie films in 1931. Arzoo Lucknowi, Faiyaaz Hashmi, Behzad Lucknowi, Dr. Safdar ‘Aah’ Sitapuri, D N Madhok, Pandit Indra Chandra, Pandit Madhur, Kavi Pradeep, Pandit Narendra Sharma and many more were part of the Hindi film industry in the 30s and 40s.

This article is my small tribute to Ustad Amir Khan (15/08/1912 – 13/02/1974) on the occasion of his 40th death anniversary which falls on February 13, 2014. He was the founder of the Indore Gharana though personally he did not like to be associated with any gharanas. He maintained that he belonged to the Hindustani gharana and other gharanas were like its sub-branches. But his disciples gave the name of Indore gharana for his unique style of rendition.

Today, February 8th 2014 is the 73rd birth anniversary of Jagjit Singh ( 08/02/1941 – 10/10/2011) who is regarded as a catalyst in reviving ghazals as a form of singing not only in India but across the world. He transformed ghazal singing into an easier and acceptable form to suit the taste of masses. And what a coincidence! When Malika e ghazal, Begum Akhtar passed away in October 1974, Jagjit Singh was on the way up of becoming a popular ghazal singer when his first LP disc ‘The Unforgettable’ (1976) became commercially successful. So there was a sort of change of guard and handing over the baton of sorts in that Jagjit Singh took over the mantle of ghazal singing after the demise of Begum Akhtar.

The song which I am presenting here is the one which was in my mind for quite some time for posting in this blog. But I was a bit hesitant as I felt that the song was very close to be called a bawdy song and was much more naughtier than say choli ke peechhe kya hai. But the song is so melodiously rendered by the singer that at last, I decided to present this rare song.

Today, January 28th is the 84th birth anniversary of Pandit Jasraj, the living legend of the Mewati gharana of Hindustani classical music. Mewati is the region partly located in southern Haryana and partly in north-east Rajasthan.
