Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 1
————————————————-

I remember a very interesting scene from a film, seen long back on Doordarshan, whose name I am not able to recall right now.  The scene is in a moving train.  I think it is a Kishore Kumar film, but not very sure.  A person is selling ‘barfi’ in the train.  (‘Barfi’ is an Indian sweet made from milk and sugar).  He is carrying a tray full of barfi pieces, and is trying to catch the attention of the travelers, to sell and to earn.  He is not having much success.  He comes in front of Kishore Kumar, and a dialogue ensues.  Kishore asks him why should I buy this barfi from you.  The seller gives some very simple answers like it is good to eat and he needs to earn money.  Kishore tells him he will never be able to make a sale with such kind of answers.  Then he offers to make the sales pitch for him.  He conjures up a funny and interesting jingle about the barfi on the spot, and tries to catch the attention of fellow travellers, singing the jingle he has just created.  Of course he is able to make a lot more sales.  The seller is very impressed, and the two strike a friendship that lasts through the film.

I think I have recounted fairly correctly, the scene as it is played out.  I cannot recall all the actors in the scene, but I am quite sure about Kishore Kumar being in this film and this scene.  (Or maybe it was a Yaqub – Gope scene.  I request other friends and readers to help verify this).

So, the purpose of the above recounting is to convey the idea that for selling your wares, you have to have an interesting and catchy pitch that will capture the attention of potential customers.  Whether it is Johnny Walker with a bottle of oil singing “Sar Jo Tera Chakraaye” or it is Babita selling tea with the song “Aahen Na Bhar Thandi Thandi“, or it is Dev Anand selling ice cream to the tune of “Zindagi Hai Kya Sun Meri Jaan“, the common thread here is that there is always a song to go along with the act of hawking one’s goods to the public.

The Hindi film world is replete with songs that are attempting to catch the attention of the potential customers.  These wonderful and imaginative creations have been used to sell anything and everything, in the films, for the past eight decades or so.  You can think of any roadside selling activity, and the creators of Hindi film songs have already visited that idea, with a catchy song.  I listed just three examples above, but there are a horde of such songs in Hindi films, selling everything from nariyal paani, to paao bhaji to life insurance.  Many of these songs are already showcased here.  There is a song category listed in the column on the right, called “Sales Pitch” song.  Click on that to check out all the songs that are already posted here.

With this song, I am starting a new series of posts on such “sales pitch” songs.  In this series I will cover some very entertaining songs, and also discover some very interesting and peculiar items being addressed, as the protagonist is using some very imaginative jingle based approaches to sell a variety of things.  Folks in Bombay will be familiar with the tapori act on the roadside where instant gambling happens.  Do you know there is a film song for that also – will be coming up in this series.

I kick off this series with a very slick and a very entertaining song that is selling services – for boot polish and tel maalish (instant head massage).  The film is ‘Dekhi Teri Bambai’ from 1961.  The interesting lyrics are from the pen of Aziz Kashmiri, and the rollicking music is from the mind of Vinod, the prodigal genius.  The singing voices are those of S Balbir and Sudha Malhotra.  The record labels and Geet Kosh identifies that there is a chorus also in this song.  But as I tried to listen carefully, my take is that there are two male voices and two female voices, that combine to make the chorus.  However, only S Balbir and Sudha Malhotra are identified.

The actors in this clip – there are two male actors and there are two female actors disguised as males.  The menfolk are selling boot polish services and the disguised womenfolk are selling head massage services.  One of the menfolk is Sheikh (made famous by his on screen performance of the iconic qawwaali “Hamen To Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne“).  One of the womenfolk is Shammi.  And now I need help to identify the second artist in each pair.  Is the second gentleman Daljeet?  And the second lady, is she Kumari Aruna or is she Poornima?  Please help to identify.

The main attraction of the song is of course the catchy music.  But there is one more very attractive item in this song.  It is the lines that go like

tera boot hai kitna maila
tujhe love na karegi teri laila

One of those turns of phrases and combinations of words that will have you in stitches, especially when first heard.

Entertainment of first water.  Rollicking song, done so well.
Listen and enjoy.

After almost four decades of a self imposed silence, finally the life breath behind this charming voice faded away, this day eleven years ago.  A voice that was the darling of the listeners, for more than two decades prior to her reclusive phase.

Remembering Suraiya on the anniversary of her passing away (31st January).

A career that lasted almost three decades, considering that she started working as a child artist, as early as 1937.  About 65 films and a little over three hundred songs to her credit, she bid the industry a good bye in the mid 1960s, and stayed away for good.

With 305 of her songs already posted here, the remaining songs are rare and difficult to trace.  This rare number is from the 1949 film ‘Chaar Din’.  In this film, she appeared as the lead actress opposite to Shyam.  The rest of the star cast includes Jayant, Badri Prasad, Randhir, Kukku, Om Prakash, Mohana, Shanta Kunwar, Amir Bano, Shyama, Anno Rani, Mala, Nazeer Kashmiri, Ismail, S Baburao, Kathana, Ram Avtar, Ameer Ali, and Nawab among others.

The ten songs in this film are written by Shakeel Badayuni and the music is composed by Shyam Sunder.  A poignant song that tells of the departure of the loved one.  The lines of this song are so appropriate, as we remember the singer today,

koi jaane waale se keh de ye jaa ke
kahaan chhup gaye hum se nazren milaa ke

A voice that is so sweet in sadness.  A song of remembrance that expresses the very emotions felt by her fans today.  Ah, the wonder that this destiny is.

Song – Koi Jaane Waale Se Keh De Ye Jaa Ke (Chaar Din) (1949) Singer – Suraiya, Lyrics – Shakeel Badayuni, MD – Shyam Sunder

Lyrics

gham de diya
khushi ko… mitaa kar chale gaye
kyon mere dil ko
tthes lagaa kar chale gaye

koi jaane waale se
keh de ye jaa ke
koi jaane waale se
keh de ye jaa ke
kahaan chhup gaye
kahaan chhup gaye
hum se nazren milaa ke
koi jaane waale se
keh de ye jaa ke

diya haaye kyon dil ko
gham itni jaldi
diya haaye kyon dil ko
gham itni jaldi
tumhaare liye ham ne
duniya badal di
tumhaare liye ham ne
duniya badal di
tumhin chal diye. . . ay ay
tumhin chal diye
ham se daaman bachaa ke
koi jaane waale se
keh de ye jaa ke
kahaan chhup gaye
kahaan chhup gaye
hum se nazren milaa ke
koi jaane waale se
keh de ye jaa ke

salaamat raho tum
hamaari dua hai
salaamat raho tum
hamaari dua hai
khushi le ke rukhsat
huye ho to kya hai
khushi le ke rukhsat
huye ho to kya hai
guzaarenge din. . .
guzaarenge din hum bhi
aansoo bahaa ke
koi jaane waale se
keh de ye jaa ke
kahaan chhup gaye
kahaan chhup gaye
hum se nazren milaa ke
koi jaane waale se
keh de ye jaa ke

ग़म दे दिया
खुशी को॰॰॰ मिटा के चले गए
क्यों मेरे दिल को
ठेस लगा कर चले गए

कोई जाने वाले से
कह दे ये जा के
कोई जाने वाले से
कह दे ये जा के
कहाँ छुप गए
कहाँ छुप गए
हमसे नज़रें मिला के
कोई जाने वाले से
कह दे ये जा के

दिया हाये क्यों दिल को
ग़म इतनी जल्दी
दिया हाये क्यों दिल को
ग़म इतनी जल्दी
तुम्हारे लिए हमने
दुनिया बदल दी
तुम्हारे लिए हमने
दुनिया बदल दी
तुम्हीं चल दिये॰ ॰ए॰ ॰ए
तुम्हीं चल दिये
हमसे दामन बचा के
कोई जाने वाले से
कह दे ये जा के
कहाँ छुप गए
कहाँ छुप गए
हमसे नज़रें मिला के
कोई जाने वाले से
कह दे ये जा के

सलामत रहो तुम
हमारी दुआ है
सलामत रहो तुम
हमारी दुआ है
खुशी ले के रुखसत
हुये हो तो क्या है
खुशी ले के रुखसत
हुये हो तो क्या है
गुजारेंगे दिन॰ ॰ ॰
गुजारेंगे दिन हम भी
आँसू बहा के’
कोई जाने वाले से
कह दे ये जा के
कहाँ छुप गए
कहाँ छुप गए
हमसे नज़रें मिला के
कोई जाने वाले से
कह दे ये जा के

The vast ocean of the Hindi film songs contains innumerable gems that lie hidden from the eyes, in the depths.  These gems, overshadowed by the waves of the popular melodies, more often than not, are even more endearing and more heartwarming than the popular tunes that capture the attention of the listening public.  And it is the true connoisseurs of this art that will delve into the deep to search out such gems.  It is these connoisseurs that value the sounds of the voices such as Suman Kalyanpur.

Greetings and best wishes to Suman Kalyanpur ji, on her birth anniversary (28th January).

Around 11 pm last night it started to drizzle.  Rain on 26th January is not an unheard of, or unexpected thing.  But still, it can dampen the spirit of celebration at this  annual event of national importance.  And so the concern is always there.  When I woke up early this morning, it had drizzled all night long.  Along with the continuing cold temperatures, the clouds and the precipitation foretold a dreary day.  Literally, raining on the parade.

Greetings to all on today’s celebration of the Republic Day of India.  65 years ago today, the Constitution of India was brought into effect, and our nation was declared a Republic.

The original and the natural ‘chulbuli’ (mischievous) of the Hindi screen.  As a child, she was Keeto (कीतो), and when she passed away, she was playing the role of Rano.

One of the key threads of genres that runs through the films of 1960s is an array of action films that were centered around the he-man actor Dara Singh.  This was the period when Dara Singh constituted an entire segment of the film industry all by himself.  Stories and screenplays were written keeping him as the center of the universe.  His larger than life physical presence, his standing as a real life body builder and wrestler of international repute, and his reputation as an upright person with very clean habits and a very honest, very humane person – all these characteristics made him a very popular figure with the masses.  Here was a screen hero who would be easily idolized by the common man, for the simple reason that his screen roles were a very close reflection of his real life persona.

Yeh Hai Bombay Meri Jaan – 2

         Bombay Gangout – Part 2
         After the Breakfast.

After having amicably negotiated the breakfast time, the gang members descended again to the secret basement chambers, to start the day’s proceedings in earnest.  I will have to now write a little bit more about Bombay syndicate members, as we were getting more and more familiar with every passing minute.  The most energetic and the most engaging personality of the hour was definitely the IndiaMan.  He has a joke ready for every occasion, for every topic. Let me tell you why I used the epithet – ‘the antithetic patella specialist’ for him.

From the very early childhood, probably the deepest interest that I have is gathering and storing away in memory – facts, curious info, peculiar data, and a plethora of such interesting information that I would use (still use :) ) to make interesting conversations and, ahem, impressing others  :).  In short, I have been a General Knowledge (GK) buff since I was toddler.  In my class, I was known as the best and the worst – always scored the highest, mostly perfect scores, in the GK papers, and always, without fail, scored the lowest in art and painting.  (The art teachers were generous; they would give me just enough not to spoil my averages.)

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 13
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – 

The more one searches and sifts through the immense ocean that is the Hindi film song, the more are the gems that come back into memory.  And the magic of Chitragupt is seemingly unending.  A career spanning a little over four decades, and the number of films he created music for numbering close to two hundred, it is little wonder that hidden gems from this unsung composer will continue to appear and amaze us.

Remembering Chitragupt on the anniversary of his passing away (14th January).
