Only if religion had not fallen out of favor with the film industry. Kya kahen, sab paise ki maya hai (what to say, it is all a money game). The producers say that the public is not interested. And so they will lose money if they make religious films. And so we have been seeing less and less of religious and spiritual themes on screen. Rather, I do not recall seeing any title that indicates a religious film, in the past decade or so.

Arre, you must be wondering, why this concern about religion in films. Well, besides all other concerns that could be listed, one concern is that we lost opportunities to see more of ‘Yamraaj’ roles that could have been played by Premnath. You see, just as Jeevan specialized in the role of Naarad, and Dara Singh specialized in the role of Hanuman in Hindi films, similarly Premnath was also gearing up to take on the role of ‘Yamraaj’ on screen. He has played this role very effectively in a couple of films – ‘Raani Aur Lalpari’ (1975) and ‘Lok Parlok’ (1979). But then, religion slowly became ‘out-of-fashion’ with the film producers, and Premnath hung up his performing shoes in 1985. Varnaa kya baat hai, that we could have seen more of him in this role. :)

Remembering Premnath on the anniversary of his birth today (21st November).

Born as Premnath Malhotra, this day in 1926, in Peshawar, he was a young man of 21 years when the partition happened, and the family moved to Jabalpur (in Madhya Pradesh). Being interested in and involved with the theatre from his school and college years, his interest was more in a career as an actor. He did not stay with family, and moved to Bombay, to make a career in films.

His first film was ‘Rangeen Zamaana’ from 1948 (also titled as ‘Ajeet’), in which he was paired opposite to Monica Desai. But more importantly, on reaching Bombay, he made acquaintance with and became a very close friend of Raj Kapoor, who was just starting with his RK Films venture. Although I have found no specific reference for it, it is possible that the two families knew each other. As is known, Prithviraj Kapoor was from Lyallpur and had done his college education in Peshawar before moving to Calcutta to start his film career with New Theatres.

Premnath connected into the industry, more than just a performer. He also got connected with other film families. One of his sisters got married to Raj Kapoor. Another sister got married to Prem Chopra. His own family and children have further enriched the industry. His brothers Rajendranath and Narendranath got their own place in limelight of the industry. So did his son Prem Kishen, whose children continue to be active in films – Akanksha, as an actress and Siddhartha as a director.

Over a period of almost four decades, Premnath appeared in close to 150 films. In his early years, he was popular as a dashing young hero, but later he found greater success as a character artist. Till about mid 1960s, he continued to appear as the lead actor in films. In 1963 came ‘Rustam Sohrab’ in which he played the role of Sohrab, son of Rustam, role played by Prithviraj. Then in 1965 came the film ‘Janam Janam Ka Saath’ in which he was the lead actor opposite to Kamini Kaushal. As I review his filmography, this might well be his last film as a hero. In 1966 came the films ‘Amrapali’ and ‘Teesri Manzil’ in which he clearly struck out towards the path of character portrayals. Considering his strong on screen presence and his portrayals of the roles, he found a more effective success and popularity in his later years. I have always fancied his roles in ‘Teesri Manzil’, as the surprise villain revealed at the end, and in ‘Johnny Mera Naam’ (1970), as the vociferous Ranjit, younger brother of Rai Sb Bhupender Singh (role played by Sajjan), whom he imprisons and impersonates for his own criminal machinations. Of course there have been more memorable performances, but these two probably caught my fancy at a more impressionable age. Other roles that I would prefer to list are his performances in ‘Shor’ (1972), ‘Bobby’ (1973), ‘Ishq Ishq Ishq’ (1974), and Dharmatma (1975). That does not mean I have any lack of preference for his earlier roles. His performances in ‘Aag’ (1948), ‘Barsaat’ (1949), ‘Awaara’, ‘Baadal’, ‘Naujawaan’, ‘Buzdil’, ‘Shokhiyaan’ (all 1951)’, ‘Aan’ (1952), ‘Aurat’ (1953), ‘Aab e Hayaat’ (1955), ‘Changez Khan’ (1957), ‘Forty Days’ (1959) are memories to be relished.

I present this song (as homework assigned to me :) ), from the 1975 film of the same name – ‘Dhoti Lota Aur Chowpatty’. In this film, Premnath plays the role of a roadside vendor who sells pao bhaji at Chowpatty. His small vendor van has ‘Imaandar Pao Waala’ written on it. The film is produced and directed by Mohan Choti – ah yes, I was also surprised to see this name. The film has a whole galaxy of actors, some of them are making appearances as themselves in the film. The five songs in the film are written by three poets, Hasrat Jaipuri, Gulshan Baawra and Kulwant Jaani. This song is from the pen of Hasrat Jaipuri. The music is by Shyamji Ghanshyamji. The singing voice is that of Mukesh. The scenario is the streets of Bombay and the beach of Chowpatty, where a whole universe of human interactions exist. And Premnath is his exuberant self as he performs this song.

The nudging for this remembrance post, the song identification, and the lyrics have been assigned to me as homework by our dear principal, Khyati Ben. Ab ye homework to karna hi thaa naa. ;) Asha hai achhe number mil jaayenge.

Listen and enjoy.

Chorus

Lyrics

dhoti lota aur chowpaaty

arre ye hain apne pyaar ke saathi

dhoti ne to ang chhupaaya
aur lote ne pyaas bujhaayi
mehnat ko imaan banaaya
chowpaaty par kari kamaayi

hadtaalon ka zor to dekho
aeji naadaanon ka shor to dekho
khud apna nuksaan kare hain
duniyaa ke ye taur to dekho

Raghupati raaghav raaja Raam

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 7
- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – -

Listen to this song first, and then search for the familiar. See what you come up with. This song is from a very obscure ‘jaadugar sainyaan’ type film from 1964 titled ‘Magic Carpet’, the name in Hindi is ‘Jaadui Shatranji’. Consider the timing, consider the name of the music director, maybe you will make the connections.

Another lilting melody, much heard in its time, then lost in time, as the film was very, very obscure. The melody, as always, has stayed in the mind all these years, Till another good time a few months ago that I was surprised by my collector friend when he played the song for me. I had only the memory of the melody, and none about the other details. So Zafar Bhai asks me, whether I had heard of songs from the film ‘Magic Carpet’. Totally clueless about the name, no bells ringing in the memory lanes of the mind, I said no. So then listen to this, he says. And played this song. And I – I literally jumped up with surprise and whooping joy – arre ye gaana kahaan se aa gaya. And then yes, it had to be included in this series.

The banner is Unique Pictures, Bombay and the film is directed by Babubhai Mistry. A typical fantasy and stunt film, the cast includes Azaad, Chitra, BM Vyas, and Bhagwan. I am sure there will be more in the film but the available information is quite limited. There are five songs in this film, written by four poets – Shakeel Nomani, Jia Dehalvi, Farooque Kaiser and Arsh Farooque. This song is by Farooque Kaiser. The music director – Ram Prasad. Maybe, if you have heard the song already, you will now recognize the connection. This music director is the father of Pyaarelal (of the Lakshmikant Pyaarelal duo) and Ganesh. Here is a brief bio sketch of Pt. Ram Prasad Sharma, which is adapted with due acknowledgement, from the blog Anmol Fankaar. The detailed article can be read here.

Pt. Ramprasad Sharma was born in 1900. He belonged to Gorakhpur in United Provinces (which is called Uttar Pradesh today). Seeing his love for music, he was brought to Bharatpur State by the king’s bandmaster. He played trumpet with the royal band. Then he moved to Agra and joined the Military Band. He ended up joining a circus as a band master himself. This new assignment started a touring phase of his life. He toured Delhi, Lahore and Calcutta. On reaching Calcutta, he settled down for some time. He got married to the daughter of a local Post Master. While in Calcutta, he worked as a musician at New Theatres and also for the Columbia Records. By now he was an expert in playing many instruments. He had a substantial knowledge and practice of classical music and knew many Raagas.

In 1938, he moved to Bombay. He worked with many music directors in many studios. Finally, in 1947, he got his first assignment as an independent music director. The film was ‘Nai Baat’. From 1947 to 1950, he gave music in seven films. Of these, ‘Nai Baat’ (1947), ‘Anyaay’ (1949), ‘Baanu’ (also 1949) and ‘Dolti Naiyya’ (1950) were done as an independent music director. He also composed music for three other films, sharing the credits with other music directors. For ‘Shakti’ (1948), his co composer was Azam Beg; for ‘Taqdeerwaale’ (also 1948), he shares credits with Shyam Babu, and for ‘Bedard’ (1949) his fellow music directors were Mohammed Shafi and BN Bali.

After 1950, his name does not appear in any film as a music director, except that in 1964, his name comes up as the music director for ‘Magic Carpet’. He also worked with Children’s Film Society as music director for some of their films.

He was a master of musical notations, and his knowledge of music was so deep that many front line composers like, Kalyan ji, Roshan, Uttamsingh. Hridaynath Mangeshkar etc came to learn from him. Probably, having played as a Band Master helped him. This art was carried further by his another son Ganesh.

Despite his deep knowledge of music, he did not get many assignments as a composer himself. But he continued to work for as a musician and arranger for other music directors like Naushad, K Dutta, C Ramchandra etc. He is remembered by many composers as their teacher.

He passed away on 22nd August, 1995 at Mumbai.

Regarding the connection that I mentioned in the beginning. As you listen to this song, you will find a small piece of interlude music that is identical to a piece of starting music in the song “Hansta Hua Noorani Chehra” from film ‘Parasmani’ (1963), which we all know, is the debut film for Lakshmikant Pyaarelal.

So anyway, this fabulous melody is uploaded today. And Khyati Ben, please note, mera home work start ho gaya hai. ‘Magic Carpet’ is one of the films from 1964 that you have listed in your excel file, i.e. the list of films from 1960s that are still to find their place on the blog. So the home work starts with ‘magic’, and a song of really magical melodious music. Listen and enjoy.

PS: It turns out that the video of this song is also available online.  As can be seen in the video clip, this dance song is performed by Bela Bose and Jeevankala.  There are two gentlemen with beards, watching the performance.  I request other readers and friends to help identify them.  One of them, in the white attire, is Azaad, if my identification is correct.

The link has been sent by Gautam Kumar, a friend and a keen follower of this blog.

[Note: there is a small blip in the recording. It is possible that this recording is from the sound track. The film is available; searching for it.]

अंतुल हबी
के देखो कभी
ये आये तेरे दीवाने
जाम ए नज़र
जो छलके अगर

अंतुल हबी
के देखो कभी
ये आये तेरे दीवाने
जाम ए नज़र
जो छलके अगर

हमने तो

तूने गंवा दिया
सोईं थीं तमन्नाएं
तूने जगा दिया
हाए

तुमसे क्यों मोहब्बत है
सोचा नहीं कभी
अपना दिल किसी पे यूं
आया नहीं कभी
हाए
दिल की कलियाँ
क्या खिलीं
तुमसे नज़रें
क्या मिलीं

के बन गए अफसाने
अंतुल हबी

ये आये तेरे दीवाने
जाम ए नज़र
जो छलके अगर
तो लुट जाएँ मयखाने

रोको ना निगाहों को
ऐसा भी क्या सनम
जान ए मन मोहब्बत में
होता है ये सितम
हाए
दिल लगा कर
देख लो
आज़मा कर
देख लो
के हम नहीं बेगाने
अंतुल हबी

ये आये तेरे दीवाने
जाम ए नज़र

The Many Colors of Love #25 – The Promises of Love
- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - -

And so wrote the scribe

ye waada karen
jahaan bhi rahen
tum hamaare raho
hum tumhaare rahen

When emotions of love are riding strong in the heart, nothing in the world seems impossible. Love gives wings to aspirations, and heart will make the resolve to move all mountains to achieve them. When the emotions are fresh and raring, no mountain seems difficult to climb, no obstacles seem difficult to overcome. The world and its processes seem so simple, the life and its intricacies seem so trouble free and unpretentious. The brush of love colors all perspectives. The answers to all the fuss of life seem so plain and obvious, that the mind wonders – why did no one else think like this before? Why does no one else see this plain answer that love makes life so beautiful, so uncomplicated and so easy to live. Aah, the powers of the emotions of love – that seem to bring an answer to everything, every problem of life.

And with this perspective, come the promises – promises of forever, promises of everything, promises of perpetuity. The conditioning of confidence is such that these promises seem to stem so effortlessly. One is ready to pledge the entire life on this one fulfilling emotion of love. What to say of a life, one is ready to secure a companionship for life after life after life – as we say in our culture – ‘janam janam ka saath’. There may be other cultures that also contain the belief of the cycle of rebirth, but I am but I am not sure whether they also subscribe to everlasting relationships of love, birth after birth.

The feelings of love are so empowering. The possibilities are endless, seemingly so. When it turns to be fierce, then even the existence of this entire existence means nothing. We discussed that color of the emotion in the post for the song “Keh Do Ke Mohabbat De Na Takraaye Zamaana” . And when it turns to be exultant, then the promises of the moon, the stars, and entire life of devotion, or even many lives of devotion, are but a small token to bestow upon the beloved. Blessed are those whose promises sustain the vagaries of time. Some are not so fortunate, but that is another story all by itself.

This song is an endearing duet in the voices of Shamshad Begum and Chitragupt. Yes, the music director himself – he has sung a fair number of songs in films, and some of them are also already posted here. The film is ‘Tarang’ from 1952. Produced by Solar Films, Bombay, it is directed by IC Kapoor. The cast of actors includes Munawar Sultana, Ajeet, Jeevan, Manorama, Baby Rehana, Master Raja, Manju, Lalita, Bhagwan Ji, and Niranjan Sharma amongst others. The ten songs of this film are written by IC Kapoor, DN Madhok and Rammurti. This song is from the pen of IC Kapoor. The music is by Chitragupt. Two songs from this film are already showcased on this blog. This is the third one to find its place here. Since only audio is available, it is not feasible to comment on the picturization of this song. I request other knowledgeable readers and friends to please add more information about this film and this song.

A promise of love that is confidence, a promise that is faith, a promise that is a conviction, a promise that is hope for life. A promise that is made in love, and that has to be sustained with love.

Listen and enjoy.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 6
- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – -

The hoof sounds of the returning horses sounded tired and beaten. It was hot and dusty. The sun beat down mercilessly on the sweaty gang members. The lonely tree provided some respite from the blazing heat. Lounging in his hammock tied to it, Mastermind lazily flicked the orangutan walking on his bare arm. The face of Kaalia appeared around the bend in the rocks.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 5
- – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – - – -

This rare offering comes to this blog at the express request of AK ji. I remember that a while back, someone, maybe AK ji only, had sent a message that this song needs to be searched. At that time, the name of the female singer accompanying Mahendra Kapoor was not known with certainty, and some guesses were being suggested. Anyway, I received a message from AK ji yesterday night, asking whether this song is traceable. I reproduce his message below.

There was a wonderful Mahendar Kapoor song (a duet) in the late 60s/early70s: Teri zulf mein chunke champe ki kaliyaan, teri maang ko motiyon se sazaa dun/ Mera vash chale to ae jaane tamanna, tujhe main bahaaron ki malika bana dun from Jaan Bachi Laakho Paaye, composed by an unheard duo called Ajay-Vishwanath. Very popular on radio, but seems to have vanished. I am surprised that it Is not on YT. Any idea of the song?

Well, yes sir, AK ji, very much have the song and here it is being posted today at your request. :)

On a clear night, one can see a million stars in the sky. While there are the bright and shining stars that will readily draw the viewer’s gaze, the sky is full of more distant dots of light that twinkle with a dimmer light. As the gaze traverses across the boundless skies, one realizes that the sky is so full with dimmer stars that are content to shine with lesser light. For every bright and luminous star, there are a score of dimmer stars that dot the tapestry of heavens, completing the intricate design of the skies. Without these less luminous partners, the sky would look barren, as it does on the nights when there is smog in the air. The viewer’s gaze can then make out just a handful of the more luminous stars, while the spread of the sky is simply an austere shade of grey, bare and lonely.

It is a long time – a ten years wait for registering a hit. Maybe not a surprise in an industry that is known for fixing awards, and manipulating careers. His first songs appeared in 1949. Confined to B/C grade films for a large part of his career, Farooque Kaiser had to wait till 1958 before he could lay his claim to fame based on a song that would be recognized as a popular hit with the listening public.

Remembering Farooque Kaiser on the anniversary of his passing away (10th November).

He had this unique technique perfected, for which his contemporaries would envy him. There was nothing like it before him, nor now after he is gone. For the want of any better terminology, he would simply call it the “switching on, switching off” technique. On the sets, his was the fastest transition from the self to the role, when the cameras started to roll, and also the fastest pull back to the self from the role, when the director called ‘cut’. I have read this comment by, or heard it in interviews of more than one of his contemporaries, may it be the male or the female artists. They used to marvel at his ability to switch on into the character and the mood in a snap, and then withdraw himself from the character in an instant. Many others would comment that they would take many minutes to get to the right depth of mood and emotions, and after the scene is done, they need time to withdraw from the emotion and return to the normal self.
