#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
——————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 7 # Mukesh – 1
———————————————————————–

‘Mutthhi Bhar Chaawal-1975’ was directed by Surendra Shailaj for Satyam Shivam Sundaram Movies and was a ‘social film’. As per the information available on some of the websites this film was produced by Rakesh Chandra. The star cast of this movie includes Mallika Sarabhai, Rakesh Pande, Jayashree T, Gajanan Jagirdar, Purnima, Chandrashekhar, Lily Chakravarti, Satyen Kappu, Bramhachari, Neelu Phule, Shefali, Mirza Musharraf, Anoop Kumar, Usha, Mohammad Ali, Master Rajesh, Vivek, Jagdish Raj, Ram Bhai (debutant) and others.

Music of this film is composed by Khayyam Sb, while Jaan Nisar Akhtar and Maya Govind have penned lyrics for two songs each, from the total of four songs of this movie. Mahendra Kapoor, Asha Bhonsle and Mukesh have given their voices for the four songs of this movie. Today, we are posting the the first song of this movie on the blog. This song is sung by Mukesh and lyrics are by Jaan Nisar Akhtar.

As I was checking online, I find that a film by the same name was also made in Pakistan in 1978.  The Pakistani film is based on the famous novel ‘Ek Chaadar Maili Si’, by Shri Rajinder Singh Bedi. (Note: A Hindi film starring Hema Malini and Rishi Kapoor was also made in 1986, based on this novel, which I am sure all will be familiar with.)

It is not certain whether the movie we are discussing in this post (‘Mutthhi Bhar Chawal-1975’) is also based on the same novel. I cannot find any such reference being made either in the HFGK (Vol 5) or on the Wiki link site for the author, Shri Rajinder Singh Bedi. As I tried to find more information on this film and its other songs, practically all available links lead to the film made in Pakistan only. I request knowledgeable readers who have more information on this, to please add more information. As such, I presume that this ‘obscure’ movie is not based on the novel mentioned above. I could locate only one reference to this film, on website MuVyz.com.  This website gives a brief plot for the film here .

The films music being composed by Khayyam Sb triggers my interest to know more about other songs of this movie. The wiki link on Khayyam Sb also does not mention this film in his filmography. As of now I have been able to locate only this one song which is being presented today. Even I had not heard this song earlier. Being a song in the soothing voice of Mukesh, it turns out to be a wonderful song, sadly lost in the sands of time. Listen and enjoy this forgotten song from a forgotten movie.

Song – Kaahe Pagli Barkha Chhai Tere In Do Nainan Mein (Muthi Bhar Chaawal) (1975) Singer – Mukesh, Lyrics – Jaan Nisar Akhtar, MD – Khayyaam

Lyrics

hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm

kaahe pagli barkha chhaayi
tere in do nainan mein
kaahe pagli barkha chhaayi
tere in do nainan mein
jaane aise kitne mausam
aayen jaayen jeewan mein

duniya sulgi aag hai maana
jalne de is aag mein dil
duniya sulgi aag hai maana
jalne de is aag mein dil
aag lage se hota kya hai
phir bhi khushboo chandan mein
kaahe pagli barkha chhaayi
tere in do nainan mein

pal pal mujhko aisa lagta
beet chaley andhiyaare din
pal pal mujhko aisa lagta
beet chaley andhiyaare din
koi suraj jhaank rahaa hai
mere man ke aangan mein

maine teri khaatir kitne
sundar sapne dekhe hain
maine teri khaatir kitne
sundar sapne dekhe hain
maathe jhoomar pairon paayal
haath saje hai kangan mein
kaahe pagli barkha chhaayi
tere in do nainan mein

हं हं हं
हं हं हं हं
हं हं हं हं
काहे पगली बरखा छायी
तेरे इन दो नयनन में
काहे पगली बरखा छायी
तेरे इन दो नयनन में
जाने ऐसे कितने मौसम
आयें जाएँ जीवन में

दुनिया सुलगी आग है माना
जलने दे इस आग में दिल
दुनिया सुलगी आग है माना
जलने दे इस आग में दिल
आग लगे से होता क्या है
फिर भी खुशबू चन्दन में
काहे पगली बरखा छायी
तेरे इन दो नयनन में

पल पल मुझको ऐसा लगता
बीत चले अंधियारे दिन
पल पल मुझको ऐसा लगता
बीत चले अंधियारे दिन
कोई सूरज झाँक रहा है
मेरे मन के आँगन में

मैंने तेरी खातिर कितने
सुन्दर सपने देखें हैं
मैंने तेरी खातिर कितने
सुन्दर सपने देखें हैं
माथे झूमर पैरों पायल
हाथ सजे हैं कंगन में
काहे पगली बरखा छायी
तेरे इन दो नयनन में

Meena Kumari’s life was other people’s destination. For own self, it was a road leading nowhere….no point of arrival.

These words of Meena Kumari, ​ quoted in the book ‘Meena Kumari the Poet – A Life Beyond Cinema’ (2014),  sum up her short life, so well.

Today is the 43rd death anniversary of Mahajabeen Bano, better known as Meena Kumari (August 1, 1932 – March 31, 1972).  Although she had done roles in diverse genres, she was known as the ‘tragedy queen’ of Hindi films. Her personal life was no less a tragedy than the roles she had played in most of her films.  It is said that as a new born child, she was abadoned and put in an orphanage, albiet for few hours, as her parent could not afford to take care of her due to their poor financial condition. A change of mind of her parents brought her back to their residence. But the very thought of she being an ‘unwanted’ child must have lingered in Meena Kumari’s mind later on.  Most of her childhood was  spent in the film studios as she became the earning member of the family by working in the films as child actor.  Her youth was spent in depicting onscreen, the sufferings, sorrows and tragedies that are associated with most womenfolk in India.  After the marriage, her husband saw in her more an actress for his films than a wife.  With this background, one does not need a psychologist to analyse as to why she excelled in her tragic roles. One of her tragedy roles that most often lingers in my mind is  that of Chhoti Bahu in ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ (1962) which, in a way, was a reminiscence of her own life.

Meena Kumari is one of the most discussed film actors on the websites.  In recent times, her most talked about biography is  ‘Meena Kumari – The Classical Biography’, written by Vinod Mehta soon after her death in 1972. That this biography has been reissued as a new edition in 2013 after a gap of more than 4 decades is the testimony of the sustained interest in the multi-dimensional personality of Meena Kumari.  There are at least two producer-directors who are in the race to produce a biopic on her life.  I will skip here the chronicle of her life as well as her films.  Instead I would briefly discuss two of the lesser known aspects of her multi-dimensional personality.

Many among those having general interest in Hindi film music may not be aware that Meena Kumari was a good singer and she had sung on herself a few songs in the films.  As per myswar.com, she sang 18 songs for herself, 17 of which were sung during 1947-48.  She rendered her first song “Torey Kajra Lagaaun Mori Rani” for the film ‘Bahen’ (1941) at the age of 9 under the music direction of Anil Biswas.  In her teenage roles, Meena Kumari rendered 3 songs in ‘Duniya Ek Saraai’ (1947), 6 songs in ‘Bichhde Balam’ (1948) and 8 songs in ‘Piya Ghar Aaja’ (1948). Incidentally, 17 of the 18 songs she rendered were from the films produced under the banner of Ranjit Movietone of which as many as 14 songs were under the baton of Bulo C Rani. It is quite possible that there may be a few more songs sung by her but not covered in the source.

The second lesser known aspect of her personality is that she was a poet.  I have read some of her poems available on the websites. At first, it may look plain, devoid of literary ornamentation.  But as one finishes reading, it would dawn on the readers that she is communicating with them the thoughts of the real Meena Kumari.  A sort of a bond develops between the readers and the poet in the context of her own personal life.  In a way, I will call her poems a synopsis of her autobiography if at all she was to write one later on.  Like her acting, her poems have different genre.  But like her image of a ‘tragedy queen’ in the films, it is her poems of pathos, sorrow and grief which strike a chord with the readers. But for her album ‘I Write, I Recite’ (1971), the efforts of Gulzar who first published her poems in 1972 after her death, and a book by Professor Nurul Hasan titled ‘Meena Kumari the Poet – A life Beyond Cinema’ (2014), she would have remained an unsung poet.

On the occasion of the anniversary of her passing away, I have selected the song “Ek Baar Phir Kaho Zara” from the film ‘Piya Ghar Aaja’ (1948) rendered by her.  The film is produced under the banner of Ranjit Movietone and is directed by Prahlad Dutt.  The star cast includes Karan Dewan, Meena Kumari, Agha, Usha, SN Tripathi, Roopa etc. The film has 10 songs.  Of these, eight are written by Pandit Indra and one by Ishwar Chnadra Kapoor.  One song is not attributed to any lyricist.  Songs were set to music by Bulo C Rani.  This song is penned by Pandit Indra.  Out of 10 songs in the film, as many as 8 songs were sung by Meena Kumari.

The magazine ‘Film India’ in its June 1948 issue, carried a brief story of the film in their  review, a summary of which is given below:

Karan Dewan, a medical student marries Meena Kumari, the niece of a lawyer without the consent of their respective families. However, there is no opposition to the marriage from the respective families. After sometime, complications develop in their married life due to a jealous sister-in-law (Bhabhi) who wanted Karan to marry her sister. The jealously becomes the main theme of the film with melodrama interspersed with some comical situations by Agha. At the end, everything is well settled.  The film was released on April 23, 1948. Incidentally, the film’s original title was ‘Jalan’.

It is interesting to note that the reviewer of the film, while lauding Meena Kumari’s performance in the film, had predicted that in the time to come, she would be a real good artist. The prediction came true.

While searching online for the song under discussion, I came across a soulful non-filmy nazm with the same title “Ek Baar Phir Kaho Zara” recorded in the late 1930s in the voice of Shamshad Begum by HMV.  The lyrics and the composition of this naat is that of Sajjad Sarwar Niazi, who was the Director of HMV at that time.  Pandit Indra seems to have been influenced by the underlying thoughts of this nazm while writing the song under discussion.

Enjoy the song with shades of love from an unusual voice. I get a feeling that in this song, Meena Kumari’s voice  has some resemblance with that of Suraiya, especially in the antara part of the song.

With this song, the film ‘Piya Ghar Aaja’ (1948) makes its debut in the Blog.


Song – Ek Baar Phir Kaho Zara (Piya Ghar Aaja) (1947) Singer – Meena Kumari, Lyrics – Pt Indra, MD – Bulo C Rani

Lyrics

ek baar phir kaho zara
ek baar phir kaho zara
aankhon ka noor ho tum

teri hansi pe ae sanam
zindagi nisaar hai

ek baar phir kaho zara
ek baar phir kaho zara

dete thhe hum gaaliyaan
tum kehte huzoor shokhiyaan
aankhon mein teri aa gaye
hamne kasoor kyaa kiya
teri adaa ka ae sanam
dil mera shikaar hai
shikaar hai
ek baar phir kaho zara
teri adaa ka ae sanam
dil mera shikaar hai
shikaar hai
ek baar phir kaho zara
ek baar phir kaho zara

haathon mein dil liye liye
phirte thhe tum mere liye
kehte thhe ke ae dilruba
jeeten hain hum tere liye
tere baghair ae sanam
chain na qaraar hai
na qaraar hai
ek baar phir kaho zara
tere baghair ae sanam
chain na qaraar hai
na qaraar hai
ek baar phir kaho zara
ek baar phir kaho zara
aankhon ka noor ho tum
dil ka suroor ho tum
teri hansi pe ae sanam
zindagi nisaar hai

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 17
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The versatility of a writer, especially a song writer, is a direct reflection of his well rounded awareness and understanding of the many aspects of this life and the society that we live in.  Getting into the industry, and writing for the regular social and romantic themes is one level of expertise.  The next dimension to that is to move away from the conventional lines and create unusual verses.  Like the path breaking new sounds that RD Burman created in the 1970s.  An example of a neo+ song that comes to mind is the striking “Dam Maaro Dam” from the 1971 film ‘Hare Rama Hare Krishna’.  The theme and the expressions in this song, well reflect the then ongoing hippie ‘revolution’ that had swept around the globe, starting from west in the second half of 1960s, and making its way east, as an undefined quest.  The song represents the moods of rebel thoughts that drove this movement.  Taking in the changes that were coming along with the newer generations, Anand Bakshi wrote the simple lyrics of this song, that at one time, had become the signature beat for the hippie people.

Remembering Anand Bakshi, on the day of his passing away today (30th March).

MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…. Song No….9
————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1957 film ‘Ek Jhalak’.

1957 – what a year it was! The best year in the Golden Era! The best year in the 50s! The best year for melody and music! Such wonderful films came in this year!!! The lineup of 1957 films looks like the selection of the creamy layer in everlasting music – ‘Mother India’, ‘Pyasa’, ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’, ‘Bhabhi’, ‘Asha’, ‘Miss Mary’, ‘Naya Daur’, ‘Do Aankhen Baarah Haath’, ‘Paying Guest’, ‘Nau Do Gyarah’, ‘Dekh Kabira Roya’. ‘Nausherwaan e Adil, ‘Gateway Of India’, ‘Hum Panchhi Ek Daal Ke, ‘Kathputali’, ‘Sharada’ . . . Films produced in Madras were quite popular. AVM’s ‘Bhabhi’, ‘Miss Mary’ and ‘Hum Panchhi Ek Daal Ke’, Prasad Production’s first Hindi film ‘Sharda’, and MV Raman’s film ‘Asha’ played havoc with their captive audiences. Films from south somehow have always concocted a success formula, mixing comedy, tragedy, social message, excellent production values and above all superb music, which made their films very popular everywhere.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 16
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Dil Ka Soona Saaz Taraana Dhoondhega” (‘’Ek Naari Do Roop’, 1973) – a song that has become an everlasting signature memory of its creators.  The singing voice of Rafi Sb that instills a restless, discontented pathos into the words of remorse that follows accomplishments.  The words that are written by Asad Bhopali, touch the theme of an unfulfilled genius.  And the music, it comes from the mind of Ganesh, to whom the sentiments and the theme of this song, fit to the very end.

Remembering music director Ganesh on the anniversary of his passing away (28th March).

The name of Ganesh is associated with an illustrious family of musicians.  Son of Ram Prasad Sharma, and younger brother to Pyaarelal Ram Prasad Sharma (of the Laxmikant Pyaarelal duo).  Besides Pyaarelal, his other brothers have reaped fame for themselves in the film and non-film music arenas.

In the beginning of 1960s, the name of Ganesh came to be acknowledged as the key contributor to the success of the music of Laxmikant Pyaarelal.  The effect of this impression in the industry was so strong that by the mid 1960s, he got about 10 assignments as an independent music director, even before a single film with his music had even got to the studio floors.  In 1966, when the films with his music started to appear in theatres, the audiences were swept with the stunning sounds of “Hum Tere Bin Jee Na Sakenge Sanam” (‘Thakur Jarnail Singh’, 1966), “Hum Jahaan Hain Wo Maqaam Husn Aur Ishq Hai” (‘Husn Aur Ishq’, 1966), “Intzaar Ka Aalam Tanhaai Aur Hum” (‘Shera Daku’, 1966) and more.  1967 was no less with songs like “Zulfon Ka Rangeen Saaya Hai Tauba Khudaaya” and “Main Jo Galey lag Jaaungi Tera Badan Jal Jaayega” from ‘Anjaam’, and in 1968 the audiences were treated to songs like “Raja Aana Hamaare Banlge Pe” and “Main To Khadi Re Khadi Re Aankh Ladi Re Ladi Re” from ‘Sab ka Ustad’.

A little over two years ago, we had celebrated the century of this remarkable and versatile artist, as a music director, when I had posted the song “Nanha Sa Dil Deti Hoon Pardesi Preet Nibhaana”.  A peerless master of the classical tradition, whose typecasting in the industry was so intense that he mostly remained confined to B/C grade mythological films for most of his career of nearly five decades.

“Girl Friend”(1960) was directed by Satyen Bose for Basu Chitra Mandir, Bombay and it had Kishore Kumar, Waheeda Rehman, Bipin Gupta, Nazeer Hussain, Leela Mishra, Jagdev, Dhumal, Gautam, Keshto, Master Anwar, Daisy Irani etc in it. This is perhaps the only movie where Kishore Kumar and Waheeda Rehman were paired together in lead roles.
