“Life is short but art and for that matter music is permanent. There is no death of a true art and so is it with music.”

These are the words of one who is known as the ‘Gentleman Musician’ amongst the community of music directors and musicians, both in Bombay and in Calcutta.  Vistas Ardeshir Balsara – a name that is part of a long list of very talented musicians, whose contributions to the making of the film music has been immense.  These musicians, instrumentalists and arrangers, most of whom were  experienced and capable of being music directors in their own right, rarely got to appear in the limelight and be recognized for their work.  V Balsara is one such gifted musicians who did get the opportunity to step out from behind the curtain, and be known for his art.  I am sure all will remember the iconic song “Ae Mere Dil Kahin Aur Chal” (‘Daag’, 1952) in all its flavors.  The piano accordion in this song is played by him.

Remembering V Balsara on the anniversary of his passing away (24th March).

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #

# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # 5 # Mohammed Rafi – 2

I am sure that music lovers remember the song ‘Paani Mein Jaley Mera Gora Badan Paani Mein’ – it became quite popular in its time.  But I wonder if folks will remember the name of the film it is from.  It is sung by Suman Kalyanpur and is from a lesser known movie ‘Munim ji’ of 1972. I remember that it was frequently played on the radio in those years (my childhood years  :) ).  And I am wondering it is yet to be posted on this blog.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

There are many recipes to make memorable songs.  In my experience, one of them is – a B/C grade stunt film (the more obscure and forgotten, the better), an unfamiliar name of the lyricist, the voice of Rafi Sb, and the music of one of the lesser known music directors.  And voila, you have a fabulous and memorable song.  The song itself may be obscure, unfamiliar and possibly unheard for a long time.  But once you hear it – it is all a ‘wow’.

Mohammed Rafi – The Incomparable – 6

Film ‘Benazir’ 1964 has eleven songs – too many by SDB standards and the 60’s fashion.  The theme of a muslim social may have something to do with it.  It could also be the reason that this time SDB paired with Shakeel Badayuni.  Now that I have checked, SDB worked with Shakeel Badayuni in ‘Kaise Kahoon’ (1964) also.  After ‘Pyaasa’ (1957), SD Burman seems to have worked with all major lyrics writers, from Majrooh, Hasrat, Kaifi Azmi, all the way up to Anand Bakshi in the 1970s, in films like ‘Aradhana’ (1969) and ‘Ishq Par Zor Nahin’ (1970).

I was not aware of this film and neither had heard its songs earlier. It was because of HFGK that I came to know about this film ‘Aisaa Bhi Hotaa Hai’.

‘Aisaa Bhi Hotaa Hai – 1971’ was a Rainbow Films-Bombay presentation and a ‘social’ film as mentioned in HFGK. Its star cast includes Dev Mukherji, Nandita Bose (making debut), Jalal Agha, Rupesh Kumar, Anwar Ali, Nikita, Tiwari, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Shyam Kumar, Randhir, Anjum, Birbal, Maruti, Tuntun, Mumtaz Begum, Shefali, Raj Rani, Mehboob and Jayshree T.

‘Rafi Ke Dard Bhare Geet’ is a famous genre of Rafi songs.  Some of the most endearing and touching songs in Hindi films are the sad songs sung by Rafi Sb.  Almost every hindi movie has a sad song.  Amongst them, the soulful singing by Rafi Sb in these songs is widely acknowledgde as the best.  There are many movies where Rafi Sb has only one song even when he is not the favored singing voice for the film.  That song generally is a song for the second line artist, or a background song, or a title song, and in many cases, it is a sad song.  Then there are many movies in which all male songs are in the voice of Rafi Sb.  There are movies where he sang romantic song, light hearted song, sad song, comic song, qawwali, folk and spiritual songs for different actors.  There are numerous examples for both these cases.

This iconic song from ‘Pyasa” was posted in the blog way back in 2009. I just revisited the page. There is only one comment there, so I was in two minds whether to leave my take on this song there on the page or include them in this post . I choose the latter so here goes:

The best thing about Holi songs is that in most cases, the message of colors is immediately apparent in the coloring of the lyrics. The songs get created in the spirit of Holi itself. It is a social and group celebrations, and the songs of this festival are sung by multiple singers, and performed by a multitude of players on the screen. And as we sit down to color code the lyrics, the resulting view is as colorful as the festival itself.
