Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 8
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ओ’
“ओ ओ ओ गोरी लाखों जनम से”

Yet one more truly vintage Rafi, if ever there was one. The songs by him simply do not cease to wonder the mind, such is the quality of expression and the depth of a seasoned rendition. The measured deliberateness of singing underscores the mastery of the singer on perfectly realizing the nuances of the emotions involved. Yes, truly vintage Rafi.

This is the third song of this film to be showcased here on this blog. It is a sad wonder this film remained unreleased, and its songs simply became a collector’s oddity. The two songs already posted are such wonders of musical creation. Just to remind you, they are “Latt Uljhi Hai Suljha De Morey Baalma” in the voice of Geeta Dutt, and another phenomenal gem by Rafi Sb – “Ae Musawwir Mere Mehboob Ki Tasweer Banaa“.

The words are from the pen of Taajdar Taj. And the music by the unsung duo of Ratandeep-Hemraj. As I was sifting through the lists to select a song for the vowel ‘ओ’ for today’s post, I had a few other options from the 1950s and 60s. But when I encountered this song, I simply knew it has to be this one.

With Rafi Sb’s voice behind this, there is simply nothing much more to add. Except that, to just listen to this wonderful song. And enjoy.

 

Song – O Gori Laakhon Janam Se (Insaan Aur Insaan) (1971)(UR) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Tajdaar Taj, MD – Ratandeep-Hemraj

Missing Films of 1960s – 16
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Obscure films and obscure artists – this arena is a goldmine for discovering wonderful gems; gems that have been unheard, or forgotten and buried under the sands of time. I was not even aware of the film ‘Private Detective’ from 1962, till I saw it listed in the homework assignment given to me by Khyati Ben.

The film itself is unheard of. It also carries an alternate name – ‘CID Inspector’. I tried to search, but could locate no information about it, other than what is available in the Geet Kosh. The production banner is Cannes Films, Bombay. It is a mystery film directed by A Shamsheer.  Cast of actors includes Naazi, Samar Roy, Heera Sawant, Shyam Kumar, Kammo Tripathi, Vijay, Choclate, Saroj, Sujeet, Kamla, Balram, Guru, Shaad, Mishrilal, Ahmed, Firoz, Mohammed Ali, Amin B Khan, Parwana, Anand, Master Kiran, Narendra Kumar, Nazir Kashmiri etc. Barring five or six names, the rest are all unknown to me.

Coming to the artists who made the music. The music director is S Kishan. In couple of places I could locate brief write ups about him, but these are simply a compilation of the list of films for which he has composed the music. No biographical information is available. His film career apparently starts in 1960 with films ‘Gentleman Daku’ and ‘Laalach’, traverses through films like ‘Aflatoon’ (1961), ‘Private Detective’ (1962), ‘Arab Ka Lal’ (1964), ‘Khooni Khazaana’ (1965), and we hear no more about him after the 1968 film ‘Taatar Ki Haseena’.  His name also appears in some unreleased films of this period, and that’s about it. Two of his songs are already showcased here. A fabulous Mubarak Begum solo – “Ae Dil Ye Bataa Hum Kahaan Aa Gaye”, from ‘Khooni Khazaana’ (1965); and “Ghalat Hai Loot Liya Mil Ke Husn Waalon Ne”, from ‘Aflatoon’ (1961).

The names of the singers in this song are Khursheed Bawra and Sabita Bannerji. Once again, as I searched, the only sets of information I could locate are the list of films for which they have sung. We will readily recognize Khursheed Bawra – he is present on the dias in the iconic qawwali “Na To Kaarvaan Ki Talaash Hai” (‘Barsaat Ki Raat’, 1960). His singing career in films spans a time period of about two decades from early 1950s to late 1960s. His accompanying singer, Sabita Bannerji, is also somewhat of a familiar name, that is recognizable through some famous songs like “Jaane Waale Sipaahi Se Poochho” from the 1960 film ‘Us Ne Kahaa Tha’; and “Chaand Kabhi Tha Baahon Mein” from the 1961 film ‘Sapan Suhaane’. Her film career spans a time period from mid 1950s to late 1960s, having sung about 50 songs in in 37 films.
[NOTE: Arun ji, our dear in house encyclopedia, has added the following important information about Sabita Bannerji. She is the same person who is known by the name Sabita Chaudhri, after her marriage to the renowned music director, the late Salil Chaudhri. Following is a brief bio sketch for her.]

Sabita Banerjee was born in Lahore on 18-7-1938, and she grew up in Delhi, after her family migrated. Her father was Dy. General Manager of Reserve Bank of India. Her mother encouraged her to learn singing. Soon she became a talented singer. She won “Miss Golden Voice” award in a Bombay contest in 1952. She also won the “Saigal Memorial Trophy’ in 1953 in another contest. Her performances caught the attention of film composers and offers to sing in films started coming her way. The very next year composer Nashaad gave her a break in his film “Darwaza” (1954).

Actor Ashim Kumar introduced her to composer Salil Chaudhari. She sang many songs for him. They soon fell in love and got married, and she became Sabita Chaudhari. She sang in about 37 Hindi films. However she has sung more in Bangla films. Some of her Hindi films are – ‘Honeymoon’ (1960), ‘Usne Kaha Tha’ (1960), ‘Sapan Suhane’ (1961), ‘Aankh Ka Nasha’ (1956), ‘Yahudi Ki Beti (also 1956), ‘Madhumati’ and ‘Suhaag’ (both 1958), ‘Kavi Kalidas’ (1959), ‘Masoom’ (1960), ‘Kabuliwala’ (1961), ‘Chor Darwaza’ (1965) etc. Currently she is living in Kolkata as a retired person.

And the lyricist – the only place where I can locate his name is the Geet Kosh. As per listings in the Geet Kosh, Hairat Sitapuri has penned about 20 songs in four films. Outside of this, there is no mention about this songwriter in any compilation or any other source that I could access.

Listening to the song, it would be difficult to digest that the names as unfamiliar as the ones listed above, have come together to create this song. An enamoring light melody that is a nok-jhonk between young lovers. The opening and the interlude music is attractive, as is the rest of the composition.

Listen and enjoy.

She was 74 years when she passed away in 2004. And by then, she had spent the last four decades of her life in a self imposed seclusion. The separation from the public domain was so complete that many took her to have already departed from this world. When the tidings of her demise came, many were surprised.

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

Two days ago, Suman ji completed the 79th milestone of her melodic life. It is so hard to believe that she is now so senior in years. Some months back, maybe almost a year, she was in Delhi and was present on stage for a singing performance. Unfortunately I myself was not able to make it. But other friends who had attended had said that she continues to be as impressive in her voice, as she was before. Still as sweet, and ‘sureeli’ as Bharat ji would put it.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ऐ’
“ऐ जान ए बहारां रूह ए चमन”

Truly vintage Rafi. A song that brings to mind the times and the era of gentle romancing, and the soft songs of love. In the voice of Rafi Sb, these songs carry a heartfelt emotion that conveys a genuine feeling of love. It is a wonder that this song has so far not made it to the blog already.

Missing Films of 1960s – 15
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

This addition to the missing films of 1960s series is once again out of sequence. It brings us to 1965 today. And it brings a song for which the patience of the requestor is now running very low. So, another request from Arvinder ji for which he has been waiting for a long time. His reminders keep dropping into my mailbox. And I thought I better bring this song online, before the reminders start getting, well, serious.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ए’
“एक एक एक, एक चाय की प्याली”

This song will definitely remind you of another very popular Rafi solo song. No prizes for guessing; the similarity of rendition of the first line is a dead giveaway. Yes, you will recognize the song immediately. Both songs are equally fast paced. however, after the first line, the similarity ends. The other song has already been identified as a Johnny Walker song, based on information provided in comments by one of our readers. My strong hunch is that even this song should be a Johnny Walker song. His name appears in the cast of actors of this film.

Missing Films of 1960s – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With this post, I return to one of the requests of Arvinder ji that has been pending for some time now. His reminders keep coming to me, and there are more pending requests from him lined up in my inbox.

This song can well be the continuation of the ‘Memory Ticklers’ series. A lilting melody that was often heard on the radio when I used to regularly listen, and then later it seemed to have faded from the memories. Depend on Arvinder ji to recall and remind to dig up such gems to once again be played and listened.
