The Voice of Mukesh #66
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The journey following the songs of Mukesh now enters 1955.  As we come into the time period of mid fifties and later, we are going to find more and more songs being already posted.  The songs that are remaining now are the ones which mostly are obscure, and less heard earlier.  But there is fun in filling the gaps.  And if this song is something to go by, it is a lots and lots of fun.

As I started to explore the 1955 list of Mukesh songs, I came to this song first.  It has captured me immediately, with a surprising gasp of delight.  It is songs like this that make this journey and this exploration worth its while.  A song that I have some memories of having heard long back, maybe on just a couple of occasions.  Then it was lost under crowd of the more familiar sounds.  Running into this song today is such an “Aah Haa” experience.  As I said, makes the effort worth its while.  An absolutely delightful composition – light, simple words, and very, very hummable.  And the voice of Mukesh adds the soulful depth that has the unmatchable capacity to enhance the flavors and the feelings a thousand times.

The film is ‘Ghar Ghar Mein Diwali’ which is produced under the banner of Minerva Movietone, the flagship company of Sohrab Modi.  The film is directed by Gajanan Jaagirdar.  The cast of actors is led by Sajjan and Shyama, and includes Gajanan Jagirdar himself, Manorama, Aruch Tarapur, Krishna Kant, Maqbool, Dar Kashmiri, Ramlal, Shaamlal, Jamshed Ji, Shivaji Rathor, Khwaja Sabir, Meenu, Mehmood, Ghulam Mohiuddin, Rajkumar, Qader, Munshi Khanjar, Jilani, Uma Dutt, Bagla, Bhaagi, Jameela, Sinha, Uma, Baby Kala etc.  Interesting to note that even in 1955, Jeevan was still using the name ‘Dar Kashmiri’.  As we scan the Geet Kosh, we find that he was using both names simultaneously, till as late as 1957-58.

The ten songs of this film are all from the pen of Prem Dhawan, except one which is written by Indeewar. The music is by Roshan.  Going by the list of actors, this song in all likelihood would have been picturized on Sajjan.  And from the tone and the rhythm, one can associate a horse being ridden as this song plays. In the absence of the video, I am not sure if I should tag it as a ‘horseback’ song or a ‘tonga’ song, so I have left out that categorization.

Decidedly an expression of a young man’s heart that seems to have just been smitten by a damsel’s glances.  The heart seems to be lost, not being able to decide whether it should remain where it is, or should it fly off to the one that has beckoned it with a promising gaze.  All the gentleman can say is

aadhe udhar hain
aur aadhe idhar
ye hazrat e dil hain na jaane kidhar

An extremely rare and obscure delight, pure delight.  Listen and enjoy.


Song – Aadhe Udhar Hain Aur Aadhe Idhar (Ghar Ghar Mein Diwali) (1954) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Prem Dhawan, MD – Roshan

Lyrics

aadhe udhar hain
aur aadhe idhar
ye hazrat e dil hain na jaane kidhar
un ko khabar hai
na hum ko khabar
ye hazrat e dil hain na jaane kidhar
aadhe udhar hain
aur aadhe idhar

zulfon ki galiyon mein khoye kabhi
hain palkon ki chhaaon main soye kabhi
zulfon mein galiyon mein khoye kabhi
hain palkon ki chhaaon main soye kabhi
dhhondhe to dhoondhe dil ko kahaan
oo oo
dhhondhe to dhoondhe dil ko kahaan
ke aisi lagi hai kisi ki nazar
ye hazrat e dil hain na jaane kidhar
aadhe udhar hain
aur aadhe idhar

unki nazar ka ishaara mila
kuchh apne junoon ka sahaara mila
unki nazar ka ishaara mila
kuchh apne junoon ka sahaara mila
kehte huye ye miyaan majnoo chale
ho oo
kehte huye ye miyaan majnoo chale
ke jab se mili hai nazar se nazar
ye hazrat e dil hain na jaane kidhar
un ko khabar hai
na hum ko khabar
ye hazrat e dil hain na jaane kidhar

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 8
—————————————————–

 

दुनिया के बाज़ार में सब कुछ बिकता है, भगवान भी ।
(In this marketplace of the world, everything sells, even God.)

Here we have a small child who is selling God.  Well, not exactly.  He is selling small clay figurines of various Hindu Gods.  This scenario is not unique to our country or this religion.  In every society across the globe, wherever there is a worship of a personal God with a form, one can witness such vendors who sell the prevalent and the accepted images of the Almighty.  Even in religions and faiths where the worship is of a formless God, and it is not possible to create images of Him, we have an abstract representation in form of words and scripts that replace the image.  The concept and this need of the human mind to relate to a God like entity is and has been a powerful driving force for people across the ages and across the continents. Whatever may be the belief system, one will always find symbols or tokens or images or words, available to be purchased, for a price, at centers of worship and pilgrimage.

In our Bhakti tradition, it is said that the Almighty is so benevolent, that He will do anything for His devotees.  He is even ready to be sold at the hands of His devotees in the marketplace, if that means happiness and benefit for the devotee.  That is, as they say, is the power of love.  Of course, it means livelihood for many people.  It also means big business for some.

And yes, of course, with the film songs promising to sell anything and everything, how could this song not have been written.  And this is not a solitary example.  There are at least two more similar songs that I have heard.  One is “Dus Paise Mein Ram Le Lo” from the 1968 film ‘Ek Phool Ek Bhool’; the second one I am unable to readily recall.

This song is from the film ‘Naag Mohini’ from 1963.  On screen, the song is performed by Master Babloo.  In the scene, we see him accompanying a lady, (Vijaya Chaudhry on screen) probably his mother in the film.  The film is directed by Shantilal Soni for the production banner Dimple Films, Bombay.  The lyrics of this song are written by Bharat Vyas and the music is by Sardar Malik.  Besides the two performers named above, the cast of actors includes Mahipal, Rajan Haksar, Indra Bansal, Rajrani, Khurshid, Sundar, Umadutt, and Sood.  The singing voice in this song is that of Suman Kalyanpur.

Now coming close to the end of this series the way I had planned it, two more very interesting sales pitch song are to be posted.  This series is just a sampler, of some of the more obscure sales pitch songs.  The next episode is going to be a very unique and one of its kind sales pitch, one that you may not expect to see played out as a song.  But before that, let us see today’s song about the images of God being sold.
Listen and enjoy.

Song – Ram Bechne Aaya Hoon Hanuman Bechne Aaya Hoon (Naag Mohini) (1963) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Bharat Vyas, MD – Sardar Malik

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 20
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Just in his early twenties, he was already managing a music school in Lahore.  And HMV had already released a few records of non-film songs composed by him.  In 1944, he was twenty eight, when he headed to Bombay, with aspirations to be a music director in the film industry.

Remembering Hansraj Behl on the anniversary of his passing away (20th May).

He is the creator of such iconic memories like “Mohabbat Zinda Rehti Hai, Mohabbat Mar Nahin Sakti” (‘Changez Khan’,1957); “Le Chala Jidhar Ye Dil Nikal Padey” and “Din Ho Ya Raat Hum Rahen Tere Saath” (both ‘Miss Bombay’, 1956); “Bheega Bheega Pyar Ka Samaa, Bataa De Tujhe Jaana Hain Kahaan” and “Nain Dwaar Se Mann Mein Wo Aa Ke” (both ‘Saawan’,1959); “Bhool Ja Sapne Suhaane” (‘Raajdhani’, 1956); “Kitna Haseen Mera Piya Haaye Allah” (‘Sunehra Jaal’,1966); “Aaye Bhi Akela, Jaaye Bhi Akela” (‘Dost’,1954); “Dil e Nadaan Zamaane Mein” (‘Mast Qalandar’, 1955); “Moti Chugne Gayi Re Hansi Maansarover Teer” (‘Chheen Le Azaadi’,1947); and many more.  He is the creator of the timeless aria of “Jahaan Daal Daal Par Sone Ki Chidiyaan Karti Hain Basera” from the 1965 film ‘Sikander e Azam’.  And he is also the composer of the first and only film song recorded by actress Madhubala in the 1946 film ‘Pujaari’ – “Bhagwaan Mere Gyan Ke Deepak Ko Jalaa De”.

For over three decades, he regaled the movie goers with wonderful music and songs. But for all his career, he remained confined to B grade category of films.  In his active years, he was also the leading music director for Punjabi films, with a handsome number of hits to his credit.

This song from the 1959 film ‘Saawan’ is another of the memory ticklers from days we heard music turning the tuning knobs on a radio.  A wonderful composition – the lyrics are written by Prem Dhawan and the lilting melody is by Hansraj Behl.  On screen, this song is performed by Ameeta, with Bharat Bhushan playing the flute, and from the continuous smiles on his face, appears to be very satisfied being pursued by a dainty damsel.

Aah, the wonderful memories of the years gone by.  Thanks to Prakash ji for his tickler, reminding of the anniversary – his message was timely; delay is from my side.  And yes, the lyrics have also been sent in by him.
See, listen and enjoy.

The Voice of Mukesh #65
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film ‘Hanuman Janam’ is a 1954 film.  It is produced by MS Pathak and Durgadas for Rani Productions, Bombay and is directed by Raja Nene.  The cast of actors includes Prem Adeeb, Ranjana, Paro, Miky, Uma Dutt, Kanta Kumari, Raj Adeeb, MS Phatak, Jugnu, Lily Kelkar, Alka, Raj Sehgal, Mohini, Avtar Kishan, Lalit Kapoor, Meera, S Prakash, Meenu, and Chandabai.  The eight songs in this film are written by SP Kalla and the music direction is by Hansraj Behl.

Of the eight songs, we have two songs sung by Mukesh.  In the previous episode of this series, I had posted the first Mukesh song from this film – “Sukh Dukh Ke Donon Paaon Par”.  Today, I present the second song of Mukesh from this film.  This is ‘Bidaai’ song, the traditional song of farewell, that is an expression of a good bye to a new bride, as she prepares to leave her parents’ home to go and permanently settle in a new home, literally starting off a new life.  In the Indian tradition, this moment is an epitome of emotional flow.  And this moment has been captured in many songs in Hindi films.  On this blog itself, we now have 30 songs that belong to this category.

A very interesting side note to this song.  As I checked online, I find couple of uploads of this song.  As I played the first of them, I found that it seems to end abruptly, just close to the end of the third ‘antaraa’ (stanza).  So I tried the other link.  On playing this second one, I found the same issue with the ending of the song.  Quite intrigued, I went back to my own collection and pulled out the version that I have.  Once again, I found the same situation.  As a last resort, I turned to the definitive source of Mukesh’s songs,the  Mukesh Geet Kosh.  But in that also, I find that the lyrics available are exactly as played out in the audio versions that I had already listened to.

One possible explanation is that the song on the original 78 rpm gramophone record suffers from this discrepancy.  The timing of the song is around 3 minutes and 16 seconds or so.  It means that the original recording of the song is somewhat longer, maybe three and a half minutes or more.  That means that the actual song is longer than the capacity of a 78 rpm record.  So the producers of the record would simply have cropped the audio length to fit on the standard length of a 78 rpm record.  Does not happen often but there are a few such instances in which the song is cropped to fit the standard length, and hence, appears to end abruptly, prior to the actual end of the song.  The only way to check for the complete song now is to locate the video of this film. No luck so far, but let us hope.

Meanwhile, let us listen to this little heard song of Mukesh from 1954, and savor the melancholia that is the hallmark of this voice.
Enjoy.

The Wonderful Sounds of 1930s – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

If this voice sounds familiar, that is because we have heard him before on this blog.  The earlier posted song is also a delightful rendition – “Bhar Bhar Ke Jaam Pilaa De Bahaar Aayi” from the film ‘Miss Frontier Mail’ (1936).  The singer is Basheer Ahmed Khan, also known as Basheer Qawwaal.  This song today is from a very obscure and almost unheard film from 1937 – ‘His Highness’.  As I am browsing the songs from 1930s in my collection, I am finding excellent gems that have been unheard of for decades.  Wonderful pieces of music that are excellent compositions of excellent verses.  The obscurity can be gauged from the fact that almost no information is available about the film, or the artists that have contributed to create this, and other such obscure and rare gems.

Aap Se Humko Bichhde Huye, Ek Zamaana Beet Gaya” – a classic from the 1969 film ‘Vishwaas’. Interesting story behind this song. Kalyanji Anandji had composed this song to be sung by Mukesh. On the day of the recording, for some reason, Mukesh could not be present. Kalyanji Anandji, for the sake of utilizing the recording session, decided to record the song anyway, in another voice. The song was supposed to be re-recorded when Mukesh would be available again for recording. Later, when re-recording was being discussed with Mukesh, he happened to listen to the song that was already recorded. So impressed was he with the voice and the rendering of this specific song, he insisted that the song be retained and included in the film as recorded. Thus was launched the singing career of a mechanical engineering graduate, who had come to Bombay initially, not to become a singer.

Wishing Manhar Udhas many happy returns of his birthday (13th May).

This song will take you on a brief three minute journey of delightful music and singing.  Unknown and obscure gems such as this one, tell me that Hindi film music is poorer than what should have been; that there are less than 20 songs in Hindi films by this voice, her mainstay being Bangla films and Bangla non-film and religious songs.

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 7
—————————————————–

I remember such sellers from my travels in childhood.  It was a time when intercity travel of half a day or less would be a journey by bus, and a longer journey would be by train.  Both my maternal and paternal families are spread out over the Punjab and Himachal areas north of Delhi – Chandigarh, Simla, Ludhiana, Jalandhar and Amritsar.  All these cities being less than a day’s journey, our travels were generally by the intercity state transport buses. Any other travels, like visiting other metropolitan cities which are all south of Delhi, would generally be by train.  During my school years, travel to visit family was quite a regular affair, once or twice a year during vacation breaks.  Other travels, to places like Bombay, Calcutta, Madras and Bangalore were less frequent.

एक गाना सुना होगा – “बड़ा ही CID है वो नीली छतरी वाला, हर ताले की चाबी रखता हर चाबी का ताला”॰ अपने blog पर भी है॰ लगता है अब इस गाने को थोड़ा बदलना पड़ेगा, ऐसे – “बड़े ही CID हैं, ये अतुल गैंग के मेम्बर्स, गाना guess करने में हैं अव्वल नंबर”॰ काश, लेकिन नहीं, अभी ये गाना blog पर नहीं है॰  :)

(You must have heard the song – “Badaa Hi CID Hai Wo Neeli Chhatri Waala”.  It is on our blog.  Seems as if this song needs to be modified.  Like This – “Bade Hi CID Hain, Ye Atul Gang Ke Members, Gaana Guess Karne Mein Hain Awwal Number”.  Sorry, this one is not yet on the blog).

When ‘Anand’ was released in theatres in 1970, I was still in school. I remember I did not get a chance to see this film on the big screen in the first run.  It would be later re runs that I got to see this film.  Being still not very involved with cinema and music, the best fare for us used to be what we could see on Doordarshan.  Rather, whatever was telecast on Doordarshan was always the quality stuff in my mind.  So having watched films like ‘Sikander’ (1941) and ‘Roti’ (1942) and ’Baazi’ (1951) on TV, the micro mind of mine carried them as benchmarks and anything that we would see on posters and billboards going to and from school, would be just so so.  I remember, when we came to know about this film ‘Anand’, the names Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan did not mean much to us.  Rajesh Khanna, to some extent, as we had all heard the “Mere Sapnon Ki Raani Kab Aayegi Tu” that became popular the year earlier.
