The Wonderful Sounds of 1930s – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

If this voice sounds familiar, that is because we have heard him before on this blog.  The earlier posted song is also a delightful rendition – “Bhar Bhar Ke Jaam Pilaa De Bahaar Aayi” from the film ‘Miss Frontier Mail’ (1936).  The singer is Basheer Ahmed Khan, also known as Basheer Qawwaal.  This song today is from a very obscure and almost unheard film from 1937 – ‘His Highness’.  As I am browsing the songs from 1930s in my collection, I am finding excellent gems that have been unheard of for decades.  Wonderful pieces of music that are excellent compositions of excellent verses.  The obscurity can be gauged from the fact that almost no information is available about the film, or the artists that have contributed to create this, and other such obscure and rare gems.

I have been doing some research on the works of Gopaldas Saxena ‘Neeraj’ – both as a poet and a lyricist for Hindi films. Being an admirer of this great poet and lyricist, I have been reading his poems that are available on the websites and also going through the available songs that he wrote for Hindi films. Suffice it to say here that he wrote over 100 songs for about 40 films during his stint in Hindi film industry. After 1975, The rate of his song writing for films had dwindled considerably since 1975, when he began to work from his home in Aligarh. The last time that he wrote a song for a film was for his close friend Dev Anand’s ‘Charge Sheet’ (2011).

Making movies is a business venture, and that too a risky business venture where there is no assurance of earning a profit on one’s investment. In movie making, the producer typically raises the finances, gigns up director, technicians, artists etc and makes a film. Later he gets the movie released in theatres. If he is lucky, the movie may do well, but in most cases the movie may fail to attract movie wathers and the investment made in making that movie goes down the drain.

This song will take you on a brief three minute journey of delightful music and singing.  Unknown and obscure gems such as this one, tell me that Hindi film music is poorer than what should have been; that there are less than 20 songs in Hindi films by this voice, her mainstay being Bangla films and Bangla non-film and religious songs.

Troika of the Blog’s latest century singers – Mukesh, Rafi and Kishore Kumar : 3. Kishore Kumar
—————————————————————————————————

After reading a vast repository of information available on the internet as well as in the books, I am pretty certain about the personalities of Mukesh, Mohammed Rafi, Lata Mangeshkar, Talat Mehmood, Manna Dey, Geeta Dutt, Asha Bhonsle etc. But I am not so sure about what sort of person Kishore Kumar was. He was branded as eccentric, unpredictable, money minded, stingy etc etc. In a rare interview conducted by Lata Mangeshkar about a couple of years before his death in 1987, he had revealed that he donned the mask of eccentricity and unpredictable behaviour just for those persons whom he disliked and did not wish to be associated with. But how can one explain his eccentric behaviour even with his elder brother Ashok Kumar and his family members whom he respected a lot ? (In this context, there is a story narrated by Ashok Kumar’s daughter, Preeti Ganguly which I will skip here. (Those interested may read it here).

VINTAGE SHAMSHAD BEGUM…..Song No- 5
——————————————

1947 was an important year not only for the Nation, but also for the Film industry that sadly said ‘Good Bye’ to many of its popular Muslim artistes, who chose to migrate to the new nation PAKISTAN, created on the basis of Religion. The departure of many talented and popular, successful artistes and technicians was an immediate blow to the film industry, but the void thus created was soon filled up with its own personnel ‘waiting in the wings’ to take over. India never had a shortage of talented people, but it was Pakistan, who faced problems in establishing its New Film Industry. Their major problem was shortage of Financiers and Producers-who were mostly Hindus and who either shifted to India or got killed in the riots and their studios were burnt down by the rioters.

VINTAGE SHAMSHAD BEGUM….Song No. 4
————————————–

Today’s song is from film Doosri Shaadi-1947. This is a duet with Ram Kamlani.

“Shaadi” seems to be quite a favourite Title word for Hindi film producers. There are very funny Titles with the word Shaadi. To start with, there was a film called ” Third wife ” made by Madan Theatres in 1931-the First year of Talkie films in India. Those days Polygamy was very common ( and why not ? King Dashrath of Ramayana had also 3 wives. Even in Mythology Lord Krishna had an astronomical figure of 16008 wives. Mortals today are struggling to manage even ONE wife ! ). Doosri Shadi was made in 1947 and then it was followed by a move practicable Pehli shaadi in 1953. So the number finally came down to a manageable number.

As a new entrant to the blog and to the field of blogging, an introduction is in order. A few mutual friends know me by reputation if not by virtue of meeting me in person . For example, Raja pai has had the misfortune of stumbling into me twice. Once in NYC and then again in Hyderabad. Atul has the dubious distinction of being a very good online friend of mine.
