A sad event that did not seem to gather much attention, occurred on Tuesday, 29th December, 2015. Legendary singer Subir Sen breathed his last in Calcutta (Kolkata). He was 81-years-old. The lovers of film music will remember him for his renditions in many Hindi and Bangla films.

Missing Films of 1960s – 12
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OK, back from ‘Bapu Ne Kaha Tha’ and on to the next available movie in this sequence. Today, I am posting a wonderful song from the 1962 film ‘Manchali’. Ah yes, we had another ‘manchali’, before the more well known film of the same name from 1973 starring Sanjeev Kumar and Leena Chandavarkar. It appears that this film most likely sank without making any ripples, or leaving any memories behind. There is really very little information available for this film.

Genius of Jaidev – 39
—————————-

It took me A YEAR to present this post today, after the last post ‘Genius of Jaidev – 38’, which appeared on this Blog on December 19th, 2015.  After posting two songs by Mangeshkars from 1969 film ‘Sapna’, I have now a solo by Manna Dey.  Not having seen the film my guess is that this song must have been picturised on the hero of the film, trying to move away from whatever situation he found himself, in a very dejected state.

Mohammed Rafi, a name which hardly goes unheard for each day of our lives and a voice which has filled our lives with ever-lasting songs for every occasion and reason.

I happened to listen to this short song for the first time in today’s program on Radio Ceylon and instantly fell in love with it. It is from the film ‘Dhuaan’ (1953) under the music direction of Dhaniram. The first step in sending the post was obviously to check if it has been already posted. For this I usually open all the songs posted from the film and also read the comments herein.

Genius of Jaidev – 34

One more song from the film  ‘Jiyo Aur Jeene Do’ is a surprise song for me. I heard it for the first time due to the ‘meherbaani’ of ‘uperwala’. (Geographically Delhi is ‘uper’ to Mumbai.)  The second surprise is the sweet voiced singer.  Suman Kalyanpur has sung only two songs with Jaidev. (as far as I know)  The other one is “Mai Teri Dasi Tu Mera Data” from the 1972 film ‘Bhavana’.  After hearing this song every music lover would opine in unison, that they should have come together more often. One more rare occurrence is lyricist Hasrat Jaipuri providing lyrics for Jaidev.  I request our statisticians of the blog to make me ‘buddha’ (dictionary meaning – ‘one who knows’) about these statistics.

Journey Through Lata’s Melodies – 01

I was thinking of writing a post for a long time but never put thoughts into digital format. I am “The” Ms. Lazybones :-)

Finally, thanks to the mail thread about the November 7th Gangout in Bangalore which is currently in progress with lots of enthusiasm, I am ready with a post.

In the mail thread, our own Sudhir ji added Srinivas Ganti ji inviting him to the gangout. Though Ganti ji is unable to attend it, he shared with us an article written by him on few of Lata ji’s melodies. Being a die-hard fan of Lata ji, I was completely bowled over. I immediately mailed Ganti ji about re-using his article in a series of posts. I didn’t expect him to reply so fast, I got a reply within one hour. Permission was granted :-) Not only that, he even shared a link where transliteration of the lyrics were made available by none other than him.

There is a controversy, nicely explained by Sudhirbhai, that the abridged version of the 1957 film ‘Anjali’ has surfaced on Internet titled as ‘Arpan’. This version is only one hour long and all but one of the beautiful ten songs of the original film are ruthlessly ‘butchered’’ from this abridged version. I am sure the person with the pair of scissors must not be bestowed with appreciation for GOOD music. My ‘bud-duaa’ will haunt him even in hell, where he is a permanent resident now.

Nightingale Noorjehaan – 1
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

After a long long time I am trying to plunge again in Atul’s wonderful Blog. This presentation, is my sixtieth contribution.

I am going to track Noorjehan songs from the latest to the earliest and will try to complete, as far as possible, her wonderful contributions to Hindi Film Music. Her films of 1947 in our motherland, before she left for Pakistan were ‘Jugnu’ and ‘Mirza Sahiba’. All songs with her voice in these films are covered in this Blog. So I come to the year 1946. There were three films viz, ‘Hamjoli’, ‘Dil’ and ‘Anmol Ghadi’. Today I will start with ‘Hamjoli’.

On this blog, we have discussed often about the confusion in data and information related to films, songs and artists.  Across the various sites online, and even in print sources, there is so much misinformation floating around that it is really difficult to now have a trust on any one source.  The subject of this post is one such case in example.
