In the last few days, I have been looking for songs composed by Shyam Sundar, the forgotten music director of 40s and early 50s. Whenever I think of him, the name of another forgotten music director Sajjad Hussain creeps in my mind. If Shyam Sundar was called a genius music director, Sajjad Hussain was called an original music director by none other than Anil Biswas, the ‘Bheeshm Pitaamah’ of Hindi film music. Despite these superlatives against their names, Shyam Sundar and Sajjad Hussain composed music for only 20 and 17 Hindi films respectively in their careers. This works out to on an average 2 films per year for Shyam Sunder (1943 to 1953) and less than 1 film per year for Sajjad Hussain ( 1944 to 1977). One common reason attributed for their musical output not being commensurate with their talents was that both were short tempered and perfectionist to the extent that they were uncompromising which was not to the liking of producers/directors of the films.

Hindi movie titles are often like comets that visits us at periodical intervals. For instance, the title “Dost” seems to get repeated once every decade. We have had movies with this title in 1944, 1954 and 1974. We did not have a movie of the title “Dost” in 1964, but we had “Dosti” in 1964 !

“Jugnu” (1947) was a major Hindi movie in many ways. It was Noorjehaan’s last Hindi movie. It was this movie which gave us Dilip Kumar, who till then was a struggler. Noorjahaan acting opposite Dilip Kumar gave Dilip Kumar’s career a big fillip and he never looked back since.

Today (21 september) is the birth anniversary of Allah Wasai, popularly known as Noorjehaan (21 september 1926- 23 december 2000). She bagan her career in early 1940s as a child artist and soon graduated into adult roles as an actor-singer. She was at her peak when partition happened and she went to Pakistan, leaving the field of the leading female playback singing of Hindi movies up for grabs.

In my native place in Mangalore district (and perhaps other places in India specially in villages), it was a tradition in almost every house that all family members would assemble in the Pooja Room soon after the dusk for singing some devotional songs. In a joint family system, this tradition also worked as a means of creating bonding among large family members. After shifting to Mumbai in early 50s, with a nuclear family and a city culture, this tradition slowly got discontinued. But my mother would sing at least a couple of devotional songs every day after dusk while doing her kitchen chores. One of the devotional songs which I had often heard in my childhood was in the Konkani language, my mother tongue. I was very much impressed by the lyrics and the tune of the song.
