Only if religion had not fallen out of favor with the film industry. Kya kahen, sab paise ki maya hai (what to say, it is all a money game). The producers say that the public is not interested. And so they will lose money if they make religious films. And so we have been seeing less and less of religious and spiritual themes on screen. Rather, I do not recall seeing any title that indicates a religious film, in the past decade or so.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 7
- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – -

Listen to this song first, and then search for the familiar. See what you come up with. This song is from a very obscure ‘jaadugar sainyaan’ type film from 1964 titled ‘Magic Carpet’, the name in Hindi is ‘Jaadui Shatranji’. Consider the timing, consider the name of the music director, maybe you will make the connections.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 6

The hoof sounds of the returning horses sounded tired and beaten. It was hot and dusty. The sun beat down mercilessly on the sweaty gang members. The lonely tree provided some respite from the blazing heat. Lounging in his hammock tied to it, Mastermind lazily flicked the orangutan walking on his bare arm. The face of Kaalia appeared around the bend in the rocks.

This rare offering comes to this blog at the express request of AK ji. I remember that a while back, someone, maybe AK ji only, had sent a message that this song needs to be searched. At that time, the name of the female singer accompanying Mahendra Kapoor was not known with certainty, and some guesses were being suggested. Anyway, I received a message from AK ji yesterday night, asking whether this song is traceable. I reproduce his message below.

There was a wonderful Mahendar Kapoor song (a duet) in the late 60s/early70s: Teri zulf mein chunke champe ki kaliyaan, teri maang ko motiyon se sazaa dun/ Mera vash chale to ae jaane tamanna, tujhe main bahaaron ki malika bana dun from Jaan Bachi Laakho Paaye, composed by an unheard duo called Ajay-Vishwanath. Very popular on radio, but seems to have vanished. I am surprised that it Is not on YT. Any idea of the song?

Well, yes sir, AK ji, very much have the song and here it is being posted today at your request. :)

On a clear night, one can see a million stars in the sky. While there are the bright and shining stars that will readily draw the viewer’s gaze, the sky is full of more distant dots of light that twinkle with a dimmer light. As the gaze traverses across the boundless skies, one realizes that the sky is so full with dimmer stars that are content to shine with lesser light. For every bright and luminous star, there are a score of dimmer stars that dot the tapestry of heavens, completing the intricate design of the skies. Without these less luminous partners, the sky would look barren, as it does on the nights when there is smog in the air. The viewer’s gaze can then make out just a handful of the more luminous stars, while the spread of the sky is simply an austere shade of grey, bare and lonely.

It is a long time – a ten years wait for registering a hit. Maybe not a surprise in an industry that is known for fixing awards, and manipulating careers. His first songs appeared in 1949. Confined to B/C grade films for a large part of his career, Farooque Kaiser had to wait till 1958 before he could lay his claim to fame based on a song that would be recognized as a popular hit with the listening public.

Remembering Farooque Kaiser on the anniversary of his passing away (10th November).

He had this unique technique perfected, for which his contemporaries would envy him. There was nothing like it before him, nor now after he is gone. For the want of any better terminology, he would simply call it the “switching on, switching off” technique. On the sets, his was the fastest transition from the self to the role, when the cameras started to roll, and also the fastest pull back to the self from the role, when the director called ‘cut’. I have read this comment by, or heard it in interviews of more than one of his contemporaries, may it be the male or the female artists. They used to marvel at his ability to switch on into the character and the mood in a snap, and then withdraw himself from the character in an instant. Many others would comment that they would take many minutes to get to the right depth of mood and emotions, and after the scene is done, they need time to withdraw from the emotion and return to the normal self.
