Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 5
—————————————————–

It should be an interesting exercise – to identify and list out all the sales pitch songs, and then check which actors have performed them on screen. My intuition is that the exercise will indicate that most sales pitch songs, sung by male voices, have been performed on screen by either Johnny Walker or Mehmood.

“Ek Kali Muskaayi”(1968) was a Panchdeep Chitra Production. The movie was directed by Vasant Joglekar. This movie was meant to introduce the director’s daughter, viz. Meera Joglekar as a lead actress in Hindi movies. Here she was cast opposite Joy Mukherjee. Other actors in the cast included Ashok Kumar, Mehmood, Om prakash, Nirupa Roy, Lalita Pawaar, Nana Palsikar, Sunder, Neelam, Malika etc.

Hullo to all in Atuldom

Sunday was a learning experience. I visited the encyclopaedia of atuldom. I realised that the wealth of knowledge is not only because he has seen Indian movies but has also read about them. And I was amazed by the system he uses for writing a post. I took the liberty of asking for his collection of The HFGK. And I felt humbled that we in atuldom are celebrating 10900 and here is someone who has volumes on all the songs from the time Hindi films were born. But of course Hamrazji’s work of passion is different from what Atul has set out to do. So that brings us back to the main question. Is atulsongaday atulji’s passion or a vividh bharati for all of us where we send our farmaishes. I have lost count of the number of times I have raised this question. And Atulji, very sportingly just posts one more of our farmaishes :).

Mohammed Rafi : The incomparable – Song No. 03
————————————————-

Here is an example of a typical filmy song. It has the correct amount of teasing, mischief and romance with confidence. And nobody, no singer atleast did this with the right balance as Rafi Sahab.

In this blog, I have compared this musical journey to a road journey as well as a train journey. Cricket world cup is going on these days so I can find some resemblence between cricket and this blog as well. :)

In limited overs cricket, the team chasing a total needs to maintain its asking rate and should not allow the asking rate to climb too high as that puts too much of pressure in the last few overs. Like cricket teams, we too “bat” at certain asking rate. Six songs a day was the asking rate that we easily used to maintain in the past. We were in great form during 2011 when we in fact maintained the asking rate of 7 to 8 songs a day for several months. :)

Mohammed Rafi – The Incomparable – 2
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

We all know that Mohammed Rafi Sb is the one playback who had many singers copying and imitating his singing style during his lifetime.  After his passing away, the tendency only increased.  There are a few shining examples like Sonu Nigam who started with Rafi Sb’s style and made a name for themselves.  He is, in my view, closely followed by Udit Narayan and Mohammed Aziz.  During the 1970s, when Rafi Sb was alive, there was Anwar who reportedly trained under him, and Rafi Sb himself regarded him highly.  All these singers strived to imitate the inimitable Rafi magic.

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 3
—————————————————–

Aha,

lailaa ki ungliyaan hain
majnoo ki pasliyaan hain
do do paise mein le lo babu
naram taazi kakdiyaan hain

I remember this jingle from childhood.  Occasionally used to hear it from the roadside hawkers, and once I even heard it in a radio play on Vividh Bharti.  Then many years later, I encountered this song also.  I used to wonder, whether the song came first or this jingle came first – which is based on which.  As I prepare this post, just casually I googled it, and found references to Lucknow and Agra where fresh vegetable vendors are known to use this jingle.  So maybe this is more of a folk tradition, converted into a film song later on.  Just like “Jumkha Gira Re Bareilly Ke Bazaar Mein“.  ;)

“Bhaagam Bhaag” (1956) was a light hearted comedy movie. It was produced and directed by Bhagwan. The movie had Kishore Kumar, Bhagwan, Smriti Biswas, Badri Prasad, Shashikala, Kumkum, Tiwari etc in it. In this movie, everyone played characters who were named the same as their actual names. For instance, Kishore Kumar played a character named Kishore and Bhagwan played a character named Bhagwan. The same was the case with other actors too. So if someone like me did not know an actor called Badri Prasad, then I would be able to identify him by watching this movie because he was named Badri Prasad in this movie. :)
