LOST AND FOUND-GEMS FROM UNRELEASED FILMS…Song No. 11
———————————————————–

it is not that Unreleased films were the speciality of the 40s or 50s. on the contrary, the percentage of such films has increased from the last few years. What I learnt from last few days, while working on this series is, that the number of incomplete or unreleased films was the maximum- to the extent of almost running over 100- during the years 70s and 80s. If you see the statistics, you will find that the number of censored films has also increased systematically from 1970 onwards. In 1990, it touched 200 films and thereafter from 2000, it has always been between 200 to 300, touching 250 in 2005.

Many stars and superstars emerged during the 70s and the 80s, like Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan. Almost every producer and the aspirant investors naturally wanted to make films with them. Every week, 4 to 5 films used to be announced with them. Some films even started shooting, but only the experienced and the established sustained in this Rat race and the novices left the movies incomplete. The urge to earn money had become so intense that many completed and censored films got into disputes and court cases, resulting into films remaining unreleased. One can find such films’ lists on Google. Some of the films were released after a gap of 10 to 40 years, between completion/censoring and release time.

Today’s song is from one such film. It was made in 1983 with Raj Kapoor ( his last acted film), joining hands with the thespian Ashok Kumar. This film ran into disputes and was never released. The name of the film is ” CHOR MANDALI “-83. (I find that there was yet another film of the same name in 2006. But it had a different cast).

The film was from Rawal Films. Produced by C.L.Rawal, it was directed by B.L.Rawal, and the Lyrics were by G.L.Rawal. Looks like a family affair. The Music Director was the pair of Kalyanji-Anandji and the cast included Raj Kapoor, Ashok Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Asha Parekh, Rita Bhaduri, Bindu etc etc. I feel that it was way back in a 1950 film ” Bewafa” that Raj Kapoor and Ashok Kumar had acted together. Even that film had released only in 1952, two years after completion.

The plot of the film revolved around a gang of hopeful thieves who attempt a Diamond Heist and Raj and Ashok Kumar successfully foil their attempt. The film was dubbed, completed and censored in 1983, but its release was stalled due to a dispute.

This film had a song sung by Kishore Kumar, Mukesh and Dilraj Kaur. This is not a common combination. However even in ” Amar Akbar and Anthony”-77, Kishore and Mukesh had sung a song together. I first got an audio of this song and then I found an incomplete video also. Mukesh died in 76, Kishore in 87. That means this song must have been recorded either in the early 76 or before that. This indicates how much time this film has taken to go to censors in 1983. Even if this film is released now, I am sure its fate will be the same as ” Love in Bombay ” which was released after 42 years.

The Music Director pair of this film was Kalyanji-Anandji, who had their own place in the HFM. Kalyanji and Anandji were children of a businessman who migrated from Kutch to Bombay (now Mumbai) to start a grocery and provision store. The brothers began to learn music from a music teacher, who taught them in lieu of paying his bills to their father. One of their great-grandparents was a folk musician of some eminence. They spent most of their formative years in the hamlet of Girgaum (a district in Mumbai) amidst Marathi and Gujarati environs and among some eminent musical talent that resided in the vicinity.

Kalyanji started his career as a musician, with a new electronic instrument called the claviolin. which was used for the famous “Nagin Been,” used in the film Nagin (1954) which had the music of Hemant Kumar. Kalyanji then, with his brother Anandji, started an orchestral group called Kalyanji Virji and Party which organised musical shows in Mumbai and outside. This was the first attempt made for holding live musical shows in India.

Kalyanji Anandji’s arrival in the Bombay film industry as music composers was a turning point. When big music directors like S.D. Burman, Hemant Kumar, Madan Mohan, Naushad, Shankar Jaikishan and Ravi were ruling the Hindi film music world – and it was a golden period of film music – it was very tough to make a place amongst them. Still they came and won the hearts and minds of Indian people.

The Bharat Bhushan–Nirupa Roy hit Samrat Chandragupta (1959) was his first film as Kalyanji Virji Shah. Songs like “Chahe Paas Ho” (Lata–Rafi) that are remembered to this day were what made the movie a commercial success. This was followed by his composing music scores for more films like Post Box 999 before Anandji who was assisting him, joined him officially to form the Kalyanji Anandji duo in Satta Bazar and Madari (1959). Chalia (1961) was their earliest major hit. In 1965, two decisive scores, Himalay Ki God Mein and Jab Jab Phool Khile, established them as composers to reckon with.

Kalyanji-Anandji’s variety-studded music is complete with some of the topmost songs of all singers and genres. Both Kalyanji and Anandji worked as music composers for over 250 films, 17 of which were golden jubilees and 39 silver. The factor behind their success is hard work, apart from their talent. They were never self-centered or egoistic. The spiritually inclined brothers opened up a new horizon in Bollywood. They used to put society in front of them and, as a thankful gesture, organised many charitable concerts for NGOs and several charitable institutions in India and abroad with some of the biggest names in Bollywood, like Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Rekha and Sridevi.

They were tireless in discovering new talents and grooming them, as well. Manhar Udhas, Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, Sadhna Sargam, Sapna Mukherjee, Udit Narayan, Sunidhi Chauhan, now very popular names, were nurtured as singers and got their first breaks from Kalyanji Anandji. Fellow composers Laxmikant Pyarelal, before becoming famous, worked as music assistants to Kalyanji Anandji.

They helped introduce or gave career defining breaks to lyricists like Qamar Jalalabadi, Anand Bakshi, Gulshan Bawra, Anjaan, Verma Malik and M G Hashmat.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, their work was introduced to a young Western audience by three albums. Bombay the Hard Way: Guns, Cars and Sitars was a mix album put together by US DJ Dan The Automator; Bollywood Funk was an Outcaste compilation album put together by Sutrasonic DJs Harv and Sunni; while The Beginners Guide To Bollywood was compiled by John Lewis from Time Out magazine. All three of these records concentrated on Kalyanji Anandji tracks from 1970s films that featured funk breakbeats, wah-wah guitars and Motown-style orchestrations. In 2005, The Black Eyed Peas’s “Don’t Phunk with My Heart” used music pieces from two of their songs: “Ae Naujawan” from the 1972 film Apradh and “Yeh Mera Dil” from the 1978 film Don, which won them a Grammy Award.

On 24 August 2000, Kalyanji breathed his last. His era with Anandji will always be remembered for their great contributions. Kalyanji’s dream for training new and young talents and promoting them is carried on today by Anandji in the name of Little Stars.

The composers composed some outstanding songs rendered by the legend Kishore Kumar such as “Jeevan se bhari teri aankhe”, “Zindagi ka safar hai ye kaisa Safar”, “Pal pal dil ke paas”, “Neele Neele Ambar Par”. Their composition called “Pal bharke liye” was used in an episode of The Simpsons. Remixed version of the song “Apni Toh Jaise Taise,” originally from the 1981 film Laawaris was used in 2010 Bollywood film housefull. The Calcutta High Court restrained producer Sajid Nadiadwala from the cinematic use of the song.(Thanks to wiki).

Let us now listen to a song from Unreleased film ” Chor Mandali”-1983,sung by Mukesh,Kishore and Dilraj Kaur…

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.


Song-Dhoti lota aur chowpaati (Dhoti Lota aur Chowpaati)(1975) Singer-Mukesh, Lyrics-Hasrat Jaipuri, MD-Shamji Ghanshamji
Chorus

Lyrics

dhoti lota aur chowpaaty
dhoti lota aur chowpaaty
arre ye hain apne pyaar ke saathi
inse apna rishta naata
baaki saari duniya maati
dhoti lota aur chowpaaty
aji ye hain apne pyaar ke saathi
inse apna rishta naata
baaki saari duniya maati
dhoti lota aur chowpaaty

dhoti ne to ang chhupaaya
aur lote ne pyaas bujhaayi
mehnat ko imaan banaaya
chowpaaty par kari kamaayi
chowpaaty par kari kamaayi
jag waalon ki jeb na kaati
dhoti lota aur chowpaaty

hadtaalon ka zor to dekho
aeji naadaanon ka shor to dekho
khud apna nuksaan kare hain
duniyaa ke ye taur to dekho
duniyaa ke ye taur to dekho
apne ghar mein loota-laati
dhoti lota aur chowpaaty

kaam kiya hai kaam karenge
aur kaam se ooncha naam karenge
chaahe apni jaan bhi jaaye ae
Raghupati raaghav raaja Raam
patit paawan Sita Raam
ishwar allah tero naam
sab ko sanmati de bhagwaan

desh ko naa badnaam karenge
hum to hai Gaandhi ki laathi
dhoti lota aur chowpaaty
aeji ye hai apne pyaar ke saathi
inse apna rishta naata
baaki saari duniya maati
dhoti lota aur chowpaaty

waa wa wa wow waa

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).

“You see sir, I can walk English, I can talk English, I can laugh English.”
“Aaj khush toh bahut honge tum”
“Main aaj bhi phenke huye paise nahin uthata”
“Sar zameene Hindustan, aa salaam walekum”. (Nahmji I know I may have written the salutation wrong, but I hope my intention has been conveyed)

These are some powerful dialogues of Amitabh Bachchan, who turned 72 yesterday(11 october 2014). He was a horrible dancer when he made his debut in movies. There is this anecdote which keeps playing on the TV channels where Aruna Irani his co actor in “Bombay To Goa” (1971/72) has narrated how Mehmood the maker of the movie had instructed every one not to laugh at any mistakes Amitabh would commit in the dance sequences. She also goes on to appreciate how over the years he managed to shake a leg or two without making a buffoon of himself. Infact a lot of later year actors who try to ape him on the way to stardom and are not comfortable dancers, also ape his dance steps. And there were many of that breed of actors in the late 70s, 80s and 90s.

Legendary singer Mukesh was born in Delhi, on July 22, 1923 in a middle class family consisting of 10 children. Mukesh was the sixth of the siblings. The lure of films always appealed to Mukesh and as such he was less interested in studies. After his matriculation in a municipal school he was able to get a job of assistant surveyor in Delhi’s department of public works through his father. However, after just seven months of service, Mukesh ran away to Mumbai to become another KL Saigal whose adherent fan he had been all along. Even in school, Mukesh was known as “junior saigal” and the lunch breaks often involved the young Mukesh rendering his favourite Saigal numbers to his peers amongst whom Roshan Lal would be one on the harmonium.

The pen whose first creations mesmerized everyone with the magic of “Mera Sunder Sapna Beet Gayaa” and “Yaad Karoge Yaad Karoge Ik Din Humko Yaad Karoge”. A dream debut that most artists just think about. He was introduced to Shashadhar Mukherjee, then still with Filmistan, and got the assignment to write for the 1947 film ‘Do Bhai’. Sachin Da took the words and wove a musical magic around them, and gave them to the voice of Geeta Rai (later Geeta Dutt). It need not even be mentioned that the rest is history.

The one voice in the Hindi cinema world that is so different from any others. The one voice that can only be characterized as soulful and naturally so. The sound of this soft voice seems to be coming from great depth. t not a deep bass, or a booming sound. Just a soft voice, moving very easily and comfortably, rising from deep caverns. Unassuming and soothing as it reaches out to the listeners, it is one voice that caresses, soothes and comforts in a way that no other voice can. No matter what the song be, when sung by Mukesh, it seems to get an unexpected ambience and comes alive, as no other voice can make happen. There is a touch of melancholy that rings even in the songs of zest and happiness, that is the hallmark of his singing. Many more such voices have come and will come. But none will be able to connect the sound with the heart as Mukesh could.

Today (22 july 2014) is the 91st birth anniversary of Mukesh (22 july 1923- 27 august 1976). We have been discussing Mukesh songs not only on his anniversary but on other days as well. Less number of Mukesh songs aeing discussed these days for the simple reason that as many as 675 Mukesh songs have already been discussed and only about 200 odd Mukesh songs are left to be discussed.

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.
