The song beginning with ‘K’ is from the film ‘jauhri’ (1951). This Rafi sahab Solo is adding a dimension to this series. Two songs from the film Ae muhabbat tere jahaan mein gham ke siwa kuchh bhi nahin and Aa mile kal bichhad gaye are already posted. Both were solos by Geeta Dutt, picturized on Geeta Bali. This Rafi solo is performed on screen by ‘Amarnath’ (As per the excel sheet). Tajnath Zaar is the lyricist and music is by Pandit Harbanslal.

It is the general belief that there is a hindi film song for every situation. There are also a host of fans of Rafi sahab who believe that there is a Rafi song every possible situation conceivable. But I was astonished to see this song from the film ‘ Hamlet ‘(1954). I saw this song for the first time some days back couldn’t believe it is being sung by the grave diggers. They are digging the grave and singing this happy sounding song talking of ‘badarwa’ ‘purwaiyya’ ‘doliyaa sajaayi’ ‘shaadi rachaayi’ etc. I have seen some songs which are morbid to look at and are playing in the background while a funeral is taking place or even when someone is on the deathbed. But was not expecting to find a song with actual grave digging. This must be unique and one of its kind song. It is true that anything can happen in a Hindi film.

Greetings to all as we celebrate today the 66th anniversary of independence of this nation. Over the years, we have enjoyed many songs, published on this blog and many not yet showcased here. Songs that celebrate the spirit of patriotism and nationalism, songs that celebrate the event of freedom for this nation on this day. The flavors and the moods of these songs vary a lot. From serious songs of nationalism, from songs that talk of struggles and martyrdom, from songs that exhort their audience to rise and protect, to the songs that celebrate the honor of this land and its people, to the songs that express joy of freedom, and songs that inspire hard work and nation building. So many poets have written such a variety of verses. Every Independene Day and Republic Day we post 6 to 8 songs, and yet there seems to be a treasure of such songs that is out there, still to be discovered.

Here is this song from “Deedaar” (1951). It is sung by Lata and it is picturised on a lady looking extremely happy and besides herself with joy. I had great difficulty in identifying her and I actually rubbed my eyes in disbelief on realising that the lady in question was none other than Nimmi ! I was told that the only occasion when Nimmi was seen breaking into a faint smile was in a 1960s movie and that too towards the fag end of her career. but this song alters all that. She actually is seen smiling whole heartedly in this song.

When I saw the caption of this song, “tere pyaar mein dildaar” I thought I recognised this song. When I started to play it, it turned out to be a Lata Mangeshkar song, while I thought it might be a Shamshad Begum sing a composition by O. P. Nayyar from 50’s. It has a very old worldy feel to it. Actually it is from the Film “Mere Mehboob” and it is composed by Naushad. It goes without saying that it is written by Shakeel Badayuni. This is a kind of song, which keeps going on and on in the head long after you have heard it. I heard this song yesterday, after a very long time. It has three long stanzas in rapid speed. I made doubly sure that it was not posted. This should one of the last 2 songs from the film posted here, if information is correct.

Typically our readers send us farmaishes of songs and we in this blog struggle to fulfil all these farmaishes. And it is my fond wish that a day will come when the shoe will be on the other foot and our readers will struggle to think of songs as farmaishes. :D

Our country is a land of villages, and it lives in the hearts of the farmers of this land. There is an immeasurable bond that we Indians have with the mitti (soil) of this land; that which cares for us and provides for all our needs.

When Hindi movie music directors wanted to create songs of a particular mood, they would explain the situation to the lyricist and he would write a song for the occassion. Then music director would compose the music and get the song recorded.

When India won the world cup on 2nd april 2011, it was a great feeling for millions of Indian cricket fans and they celebrated late into the nights and well into the next day and the next. The fact that the final was played on saturday and there were two days of holidays on the following days (Sunday being the normal holiday and monday being Indian calender’s new year day), people had enough time to celebrate and get over the hangover.
