An important date today – 21st October. It is the birth date of two very dear performers who have held the center stage for sustained periods, enthralling many generations of filmgoers and music lovers – Shammi Kapoor and Helen. In their own spaces, both these artists ruled the silver screen through the decades of 1960s.

Shammi Kapoor’s transformation from a generic performer to the flamboyant young lover happened in the later part of 1950s, with films like ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’ (1957) and ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ (1959). And he continued to remain on the top for the next decade. After the mid 1970s, he transitioned into character roles and continued to regale the audiences with his style and histrionics. The curtain on this illustrious career came down a little over three years ago, on 14th August, 2011.

For Helen, the launching pad was really the iconic “Mera Naam Chin Chin Choo” in ‘Howrah Bridge’ (1958). And then on for two decades, she ruled as the princess of dance, going from strength to strength with each performance. For over two decades, her dance numbers were a fixture in the film production in Bombay. No matter the formula, her dances would definitely be part of the script.

Wishing Helen ji all the best in life – good health and happiness, on this day today.

A number of songs that include both the artists, are already showcased here on the blog. And locating new numbers which show both on the screen together, is becoming a tough task. I have been able to locate this dance number from the 1974 film ‘Chhote Sarkar’. Shammi Kapoor is present in the scene, but he is not singing. He is the artist who is sitting in one corner, sketching out the figure of the dancing belle.

‘Chhote Sarkar’ is produced by Pinky Films, Bombay and is directed by K Shankar. Cast of actors includes Shammi Kapoor, Sadhna, Shashikala, Sulochana, Sunder, Helen, Shammi, Asit Sen, Jagdish Raj, Rashid Khan, Uma Dutt and Rajan Kapoor etc. The songs of this film are penned by Rajendra Krishan and the music is by Shankar Jaikishan.

No matter the quality of the film and picturization, the performance that Helen presents is with full heart and energy. Simply cannot find a fault with that. Simply see and enjoy.


Song-Main kesar kasturi (Chhote Sarkaar)(1974) Singer-Krishna Kalle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi

kahaan kahaan se aa jaate hain
raat ke raahi rang jamaane
beete din ki bhool ke thokar
raat ki taaza thokar khaane
kuchh jaane
kuchh pehchaane
aur kuchh in mein anjaane
kuchh jaane
kuchh pehchaane
aur kuchh in mein anjaane
main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi

aankh mein jhhoothi rangeeni hai
jeevan sabka pheeka pheeka
har maathe per lagaa huaa hai
gham ke chandan ka ik teeka
apna apna dard chhupaaye
chalte phirte ye saaye
apna apna dard chhupaaye
chalte phirte ye saaye
main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi

kadam kadam par jinke peechhe
maayusi ke lagey hain pehre
haath mein leker wo paimaane
dekh rahe hain khwaab sunehre
paagal mann ko yoon behlaayen
kadam kadam par dhokha khaayen
paagal mann ko yoon behlaayen
kadam kadam par dhokha khaayen
main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi

मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी

कहाँ कहाँ से आ जाते हैं
रात के राही रंग जमाने
बीते दिन की भूल के ठोकर
रात की ताज़ा ठोकर खाने
कुछ जाने
कुछ पहचाने
और कुछ इन में अंजाने
कुछ जाने
कुछ पहचाने
और कुछ इन में अंजाने
मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी

आँख में झूठी रंगीनी है
जीवन सबका फीका फीका
हर माथे पर लगा हुआ है
ग़म के चन्दन का इक टीका
अपना अपना दर्द छुपाए
चलते फिरते ये साये
अपना अपना दर्द छुपाए
चलते फिरते ये साये
मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी

कदम कदम पर जिनके पीछे
मायूसी के लगे हैं पहरे
हाथ में ले कर वो पैमाने
देख रहे हैं ख्वाब सुनहरे
पागल मन को यूं बहलाएं
कदम कदम पर धोखा खाएं
पागल मन को यूं बहलाएं
कदम कदम पर धोखा खाएं
मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी

Here is a quick quiz from me (searching, googling etc. allowed). Which song was the 5000th song in the blog ? Easy, you say, it is the song Hamen to loot liya milke husnwaalon ne (Al Hilaal)(1958). Alright, here is the next question- who lip syncs the immmortal qawwaali ? It is difficult, but not difficult for those who have gone through the huge writeup on this song in the blog. :) The artist lip syncing this song is called Sheikh.

The blog completed six years yesterday (19 july 2014). It was planned to touch the much anticipated 10,000th song mark on that day, but that could not be achieved due to unavoidable circumstances. Today the circumstances are favourable. And fortunately it happens to be a sunday as well. Today we are definitely going to touch the 10,000th song mark. What is more, this will be achieved when it is still 19 july 2004 in some parts of the world ! So the roundness of the world, which dictates that different nations have their own times comes to our rescue. :)

Introducing Shekhar Gupta – one of the quieter albeit active voices on the blog. Over the past two years, I have been in email communication with him, on various topics related to film music and the blog. He comes across as an unpretentious and humble personality, that belies his stature and accomplishments. In recent weeks, when I sent him an email request to get some personal information from him, his response started with such statements of humbleness and gratefulness, in a very friendly tone.

Actually when we were racing towards 10000 I had thought that we will be reaching 10000 on June 27th and it will coincide with RD Burman’s birthday. But that was not to be as after all Atul has his responsibilities towards work and family which are a natural first in any one’s life. So we have reached Gaana number 9931. Chalo lets March Onto 10000.

There were at least two movies called “Sultana Daaku”. One was produced in 1956 and another in 1972.

Kaifi Azmi (14 january 1919- 10 may 2002), whose 12th death anniversary falls today (10 may 2014) was the lyricist in both these movies. He shared the duty of lyrics writing with three other lyricists in “Sultana Daaku” (1956) whereas he was the only lyricist for “Sultaana Daaku” (1972).
