“Aakaash”(1953) was produced by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas and directed by Manmohan Sabir for Manmohan Films, Bombay. the movie had Balraj Sahni, Shammi, Nadira, Manmohan Krishna, Badri Prasad, Jillobai, Neeta, N Trivedi, Agha etc in it.

Five songs from this movie have been discussed in the past. Here is the sixth song from the movie. This song is sung by Lata. Manmohan Sabir is the lyricist. Music is composed by Anil Biswas.

Only the audio of this song is available. This movie had Meena Kapoor and Lata as the two female playback singers who sang two songs each. It is difficult to guess how and on whom this song was picturised. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of this song.

This movie had seven songs in it. HFGK mentions the seventh song of the movie as “yeh mast nazar shokh ada kiske liye hai”. This song is described as a duet sung by unknown male and female voices. The lyricist of this song is also unknown. I have not been able to locate this song. So unless this song becomes available, “Aakash”(1953) will remain one song short of having all its songs covered in the blog.


Song-Ab is mar mar ke jeene se (Aakaash)(1953) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Manmohan Sabir, MD- Anil Biswas

Lyrics

saara chaman tha apna
wo bhi thha ek zamaana
sab saamne nazar ke
jalta hai ae ae
aashiyaana
jalta hai
jalta hai

ab is mar mar ke jeene se
mita dete to achcha thha
muhabbat ki na itni tum
sazaa dete to achcha thha
ab is mar mar ke jeene se

ghadi bhar muskuraa ke
umr bhar ka ab to rona hai
nazar milte hi gar mujh ko
rula dete to achcha thha
ab is mar mar ke jeene se ae

muhabbat ke charaagon ko
bujhaana thha bujha dete
magar dil ki lagi ko tum
bujha dete ho achcha thha
ab is mar mar ke jeene se ae

The twinkling eyes and the arresting smile get to your heart when she sings “Kabhi Aar Kabhi Paar Laaga Teer e Nazar”. An accomplished dancer, who has the capability to take a song, many levels higher.  Witness that in “Diya Na Bujhe Ri Aaj Hamaara” (‘Son of India’, 1962), “Dagaa Dagaa Wai Wai Wai” (‘Kaali Topi Laal Roomaal’, 1959), “Tera Jalwa Jisne Dekha Wo Tera Ho Gaya” (‘Ujaala’, 1959), “Tera Teer O Bepeer Dil Ke Aaram Paar Hai”, (‘Sharaarat’, 1959), “Madhuban Mein Radhika Naache Re” (‘Kohinoor’, 1960), “Rang Rangeela Saanwra Mohe Mil Gayo Jamna Paar” (‘Baarood’, 1960), “Ab Na Chhupo Re Chhalia” (‘King Kong’, 1962), “Kaanha Jaa Re Teri Murli Ki Dhun” (‘Tel Maalish Boot Polish’, 1962), “Zulmi Hamaare Saanwariya Ho Ram” (‘Mr X In Bombay’, 1964), “Tujhse Wo Neha Lagaaye” (‘Shreeman Funtoosh’, 1965), “Door Kahin Door Hamen Le Chalo Sanam” (‘Ek Sapera Ek Lutera’, 1966), “Main To Khadi Re Khadi Re, Aankh Ladi Re Ladi Re” (‘Sab Ka Ustad’, 1967), “Mera Naam Hai Chameli, Main Hoon Maalan Albeli” (‘Raja Aur Runk’, 1968), and many more.  Once again request Atul ji to create a new category – ‘Kum Kum Dances’.

Greetings to Kum Kum on her birth anniversary today (22nd April).

Yes, takes the entertainment value of a song many notches higher.  That is the ‘abhinaya kala’ that she has mastered as an accomplished Kathak dancer.  Her Guru – the legendary Shambhu Maharaj of Lucknow gharana.  Nothing more to be added for her art, other than to say, take a view of the sampler list of her dance songs given above.  And you will know.  All that she communicates with the minutest of twitching eyebrows, the slight curl of the lips, and the graceful steps across the dance floor.  The performance itself is the statement enough.

She was born Mehru-nisa, in Husainabad in Bihar.  She did her schooling in Benaras and Lucknow, and then trained in Kathak in Lucknow.  Much else is not known about her early life.  She started her career in Hindi films in the early 1950s.  After brief appearances in ‘Aansoo’ (1953) and ‘Mirza Ghalib’ (1954), Guru Dutt gave her an opportunity for a song in his film ‘Aar Paar’ (1954).  The performance caught the attention, and Kum Kum was a busy actress after that.  Her dancing prowess is well documented in the sampler list given above.  She would soon begin to appear in leading roles, well through the better part of 1960s, albeit she was never able to successfully break into the A grade cinema. ‘Bombay by Night’ of 1976, opposite to Sanjeev Kumar, is probably her last film. She got married and left for Saudi Arabia, taking a final bow out of the film industry.  There are references that say she is currently back in India and living a retired life in Bombay.

Today’s song is an off-the-mainstream Hindi cinema, from the Bhojpuri film ‘Ganga Maiya Tohe Piyari Chadhaibo’ (1963).  This is the first Bhojpuri film that was made in India.  An interesting anecdote behind its creation.  At an film awards ceremony in late 1950s, the then President of India, Babu Rajendra Prasad, who hails from Bihar, spoke with Nazir Hussain, the renowned character actor, also from Bihar.  The president queries why not make films in Bhojpuri language.  In fact Nazir Sb was already preparing a script for a Bhojpuri film, with this title.  He promised the president that it will happen soon.

Nazir Husain discussed the script with Bimal Roy, but he did not express any great amount of interest in the project.  A later chance meeting with Bishwanath Prasad, a businessman and a film distributor and exhibitor in Bihar, led to a more interested commitment, and the film was launched with financing from the businessman.  The film was completed in 1962.  A special screening was arranged for the President, before the public release.  The film was released to public in 1963.

The title of the film refers to a tradition in Bihar that says, ‘Mother Ganga, I will offer you the auspicious yellow sari’. The word ‘piyari’ represent the yellow sari.  The tradition is that people will pray to Mother Ganges, and place their wish to her, in their prayers.  On the fulfillment of their wishes, they will make an offering the auspicious yellow sari, to Mother Ganges.

The song is a lovely melody that has remained in memory from the radio listening days.  The song is created by Shailendra and the music is by Chitragupt.  The singing voice is that of Lata Mangeshkar.

Ah yes, we have a century celebration today, attached to this song.  Music director Chitragupt completes 300 songs on the blog.  That is a superlative achievement, for an artist who never really got into the grade A cinema. And yet, this number here is a testimony to the quality of his music. The pleasing melodies that are his handiwork have a lasting characteristic that have kept alive his songs in the minds of music lovers.

A superb song that will tug at the heart strings.  The words are simple, and the song is very hummable.  View, listen and enjoy.

We have discussed more than 11000 songs by now. I had not thought even in my wildest of dreams that we will one day arrive at such a figure. My view was that we will have about 2500 songs in the blog and then we will not songs left to be discussed. :)

Names of so many artists echo back to us from the decades past.  Names that stir up memories of wonderful songs, sometimes happy, sometimes melancholic, but always very endearing.  Their words, their sounds and their music continues to mesmerize us, even though the creators themselves have long ago taken their final journey.

Today is the anniversary of passing away of poet Aarzoo Lakhnavi, one of the stalwarts of the earlier decades of Hindi cinema.

From the email that Khyati Behn sent me with the lyrics of this song, I reproduce the epithet she has used – “One more song to add to Lataji’s THE BEST MELODIES EVER COLLECTION.”  I heard this song, and I do agree with her.  A song par excellence, that has long been relegated to anonymity for various reasons and circumstances.

Of late I have discussed quite a few “stage performace” songs of Hindi movies. These movies typically have the lead actress of the movie performing a dance in an auditorium which is invariably sold out. Secondly, the hero of the movie is invariably among the audience. He in fact is in the front row of the audience. To this day I have not been able to find out how the hero manages to get tickts/pass for the front row of such performance even though he is does not play a politician/ administrator/ VIP who normally get to occupy front row on such occasions. I have in fact seen Amitabh Bachchan getting a front row seat for Nirupa Roy and Mukri getting front row seats for himself and his six burqa clad daughters in a song of “Amar Akbar Anthoni”. No, neither Amitabh Bachchan not Mukri are top administrators/ politicians of the town, but they still occupy the front row. :) VIP culture is conspicuous by its absence in such picturisations. :)
