Hindi film industry is like an ocean.Several small and big rivers join it and the ocean too gracefully accepts everything. Once inside, the individual rivers lose their identity and become a part of the ocean. Similarly, people from all corners of India join this industry, but only few get proper opportunity and recognition here. The rest simply disappear in this ocean. Success, they say, has no formula. Famous composer C.Ramchandra had once said, ‘If only there is anyone who can predict correctly what will succeed and what the public will like, such a person can earn millions here !’

To succeed, only Talent is not enough, one requires the backing of Good luck too. There are hundreds of cases to prove this. If it were not so, actress Farida Jalal would have become Top Heroine or composers like C.Arjun, Jamal Sen, Daan Singh or composer GANESH would have become A grade Music Directors !

Two years back, I had written an article on Composer Ramprasad Sharma, in the series ” Unknown composers”, on 17-12-2012. GANESH was the son of this Ramprasad Sharma. His siblings were Pyarelal, Naresh, Mahesh and Gorakh. Being son of a Musician, Ganesh wanted to learn music and instruments. He soon learnt and became an expert Violin player. In fact all the brothers were Violinists. Gorakh was a good Guitarist and played for several eminent composers in later years. Father Ramprasad was a Trumpet player (He had played Trumpet in the film ‘Barsaat’-1949). He was an expert in writting ” Notations ” ( Swar Lipi)…perhaps, being in the British Band had helped him. He taught this to all his sons. only Pyarelal ( who was a part of Laxmikant-Pyarelal jodi) and Ganesh understood its importance and they became experts in this.

Ganesh was also an expert in making Tunes. It was a natural Gift to him. being a lead – violinist and Tune builder, he started his music career as an assistant to L-P. ( Same time even Shashikant-brother of Laxmikant was also an assistant to L-P ). There was a special style of Ganesh in making a Tune. In all his songs, there used to be one player, only clapping, throughout the song, to maintain rhythm. This ” clapping ” was a trademark of Ganesh, and his songs could be recognised by this clapping.

His contribution in the initial success of L-P was well known in the industry and many producers offered films to Ganesh. So much so that at one time he had many offers on hand and he had to say ‘NO’ to many. He started his independent career with ” Husn aur Ishq”-1966. The Mukesh song-‘Aye mere dil’, Usha/Krisnha kalle song-‘Nahin nahin’ and Rafi’s-‘Jin ki tasweer’ from this movie became quite famous. In 1966, Ganesh did 3 more films, including Thakur Jarnail Singh-66. This was a B grade film, Dara Singh in the lead, but its song-‘ Hum tere bina ‘ by Asha Bhosle was included in the “My Favourites” series of Asha Bhosle.

No composer gives best songs all the time or in every film, but some Gems become All Time Hits. Talented composers like Ganesh did give such gems, from whatever little number of films they got. These songs signify their originality and talent. For whatever reasons, Ganesh never got into the Big League and ended up giving music only to these 16 films- Husn aur ishq, Shera Daku, Smuggler, Thakur Jarnail Singh, Sub ka Ustaad, Anjaam, Ek nanhi munni ladki thi, Kahin aar kahin paar, Kundan, Shararat, Dhamkee, Sa re ga ma pa, Chaalaak, Ek naari do roop, Badnaam and Dozakh-1986.

He composed a total of 87 songs, out of which 52 songs are already posted on this Blog. Today’s song is his 53rd song to appear in the blog. After his last film in 1986, Ganesh was not keeping good health and he died of a sudden Heart attack on 28th march 2000, leaving behind wife, one son and a daughter.

It is worthwhile noting that Hindi Film music is enriched not only by the famous and A grade Big time composers alone,but talented small time composers-like Ganesh-have also contributed substantially to the heritage of our film music.

Today’s song is from film ‘ Ek nanhi munni ladki thi ‘-70. It was a Ramsay films production. Yes,they were the same Ramsays, who started Horror films in India with their first film-‘Do gaz zameen ke neeche’-72. The producer was F.U.Ramsay and the story was by Kumar Ramsay. This social film was directed by one of the most talented, highly educated,Sahitya Academy winner,writer dramatist/producer and director- VISHRAM BEDEKAR.

Born as Vishwanath Chintamani Bedekar, on 13-8-1906 at Amravati, Maharashtra,he took the name Vishram once he started writing. After graduation,he did his Post-graduation in English Literature from Nagpur university. He went to Poona in 1930 to do a Teaching job. here he met his student cum future wife Balutai Khare…who was one of the First girls riding on Bicycle to college,in those days. They got married in 1938. She became Malat Bedekar,a famous Marathi writer later on. His first novel ” Ranangan” came out in 1939, while he was in film business. He started by directing a Balwant Pictures film-Krishnarjun Yudha-1934, a bilingual in Marathi and Hindi.. He directed many landmark films in Marathi. Prabhat films invited him to direct Lakharani-1945. This was the first film in which Guru Dutt played a role and also did its Choreography. It was here that Guru Dutt met Dev Anand,who had joined Prabhat as an apprentice.

Vishram Bedekar divided his life and time between writing and films. He was a trained Cinematographer and Director from London in those days. he wrote several Dramas in marathi. After directing 28 films an Marathi and Hindi,he left films after doing Bharat ke shaeed-1972. In 1985 he wrote his autobiography in Marathi- एक झाड आणि दोन पक्षी-. He got Sahitya Academy Award for this book. he is the only Film director with such laurels. Vishram Bedekar died in Pune on 30-10-1998, at the age of 92 years.

Let us now enjoy a song by composer Ganesh, sung by Asha Bhonsle from the film ” Ek nanhi munni ladki thi “-1970. This song is picturised as a telephone song on Mumtaz. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist of this song.

Chaandni Raaten – Song No. 8
——————————–
The movie “Doosri Shadi” (1947) has eleven songs in it, with music composer Pandit Govindram and lyricist Ishwar Chand Kapoor. The honour of singers are shared between Zohrabai Ambalewali and Shamshad Begum, with a few songs by Rajkumari. From the page on myswar.com this appears to be a female dominated music score with few songs for male singers. There is one name of ‘Ram Kamlani ‘ as singer in a couple of duets with Shamshad Begum. And for two songs singers name are absent. These two songs from this movie are posted in the blog.

Song Singer
Toota hua dil gaayega kya geet suhaana Zohrabai Ambalewali
Dekho ji aayi suhaani raat Rajkumari

Mythological films have been an important part of Indian films since long and this was evident from the fact that there was hardly any production house that did not make a Mythological film. The period of 1940 to 1965 can be called an age of meaningful religious films. In this too, the 1950 to 1960 period was the peak period for this genre. Later on the production of such films dwindled and these days, of course, one has to make efforts to find such a film, with a large magnifying glass !

It occurs to me today that. . we are today reaching that point in time when this world has been bereft of Rafi Sb’s physical presence now, for almost that duration of time that this world was blessed and more complete with his presence as a singer known to the listeners. For an active career that lasted about three and a half decades, it is now about the same amount of time that he has not been with us. And his legacy grows stronger.

Remembering Rafi Sb on the anniversary of his passing away today (31st July).
