Missing Films of 1960s – 14

With this post, I return to one of the requests of Arvinder ji that has been pending for some time now. His reminders keep coming to me, and there are more pending requests from him lined up in my inbox.

This song can well be the continuation of the ‘Memory Ticklers’ series. A lilting melody that was often heard on the radio when I used to regularly listen, and then later it seemed to have faded from the memories. Depend on Arvinder ji to recall and remind to dig up such gems to once again be played and listened.

Year 1935
—————–

1935 – wow, what a year it was.  The pioneering spirit in the industry touched an epitome. The events, the people, the films – all proved to be significant milestones as also trend setters.  And in one field, an innovation happened, which changed the game once and for all.  The field – sound recording. The innovation – playback singing.

It was a dark and stormy night.

OK, okay, I am just making it up.  It was not a dark and stormy night.  Delhi is well lighted in the nights these days, so it is hard to come by a dark night unless it is a power failure on a moonless night.  Plus being the month of November, and the onset of winters, no storms are likely.  Ah but how I wish I could start the story with this line. ;)

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 2
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today’s selection is in the voice of Geeta Dutt.  Coming to think of it, it is just these two voices that have the capacity and the capability to make a foot tapper song – Asha Bhosle and Geeta Dutt. I cannot think of any other female singer who can manage songs of the type we are discussing in this series.  There could be exceptions but I cannot readily recall any right away.

The Wonderful Sounds of 1930s – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Listening to songs like this one, there are mixed feelings in the heart.  There is a pleasant joyous feeling that such wonderful sounds from almost eight decades ago, are available  and we can hear and enjoy them.  There is also a regretful irritation, almost bordering on frustration as to why more such songs are not available.  Why is it that all one can search and explore, and just one song is available from this film, and from many others.  And for many more, even one song is not traceable.

Greetings to all as we celebrate today the 66th anniversary of independence of this nation. Over the years, we have enjoyed many songs, published on this blog and many not yet showcased here. Songs that celebrate the spirit of patriotism and nationalism, songs that celebrate the event of freedom for this nation on this day. The flavors and the moods of these songs vary a lot. From serious songs of nationalism, from songs that talk of struggles and martyrdom, from songs that exhort their audience to rise and protect, to the songs that celebrate the honor of this land and its people, to the songs that express joy of freedom, and songs that inspire hard work and nation building. So many poets have written such a variety of verses. Every Independene Day and Republic Day we post 6 to 8 songs, and yet there seems to be a treasure of such songs that is out there, still to be discovered.
