MISSING GEMS FROM THE GOLDEN 50s…. Song No….5
————————————————————————————

Today’s song is from the 1955 film ‘Faraar’.

We have already discussed the happenings in Hindi film industry in 1955, in the previous episode.  Name of this film had not featured anywhere, simply because it was neither a famous film nor a very successful film.  Its music too was nothing to write home about.  Even in such a film, we find a gem or a song special for other reasons.  I selected this film song for few reasons.

Entertaining Sales Pitch Songs – 6
—————————————————–

Aha, a very fragrant addition to this series.  We now have a song that is sung by the seller of ‘itra’, or ‘attar’ or Indian fragrant oils.

The word ‘attar’ ‘itr’ brings to mind the sensations of exotic perfumes, that is a world and a vocabulary all by itself.  It also brings with itself, the long list of glamorous and mysterious names such as Zaafraan, Shamaama, Majmuha, Motia, Raajgir, Chameli, Chandan (or Sandal), Firdaus, Nargis, Mushq-Amber, Gulab, Kesar (Saffron), Khas, Kasturi and many more.  These fragrant oils from India, are prepared from natural plant sources viz. flower petals, leaves, wood and plant resins.  (Except for ‘Kasturi’ (Musk), which is derived from animal origin viz. the musk deers.  Pure and authentic ‘Kasturi’ is a very rare thing to locate these days.  A sure test of its authenticity is that if you bring just a few grains of pure Kasturi near your nostrils, you will have a nosebleed, such is the power of this aroma.)

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.

It is winters in north India.  Delhi continues to be cold.  The day temperatures have started to rise and the sun shines brightly in clear skies these days.  However, the nights still continue to be chilly.  And I so heartily empathize with the sentiments that Atul ji had expressed in one of the posts a couple of days ago – that how inviting is the warmth of a quilt these days, and how the cold weather has effected the productivity and the progress of the blog ticker.  A ha, someone else with the same issues of how this year’s extreme weather has disturbed the working routines.  If one wakes up very early, like I did today, at around 5.10 am, मन ही नहीं किया कंबल छोडने का, and the snooze took away another hour and a half before I felt brave enough to leave the warm refuge of the covers.

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“.  ;)

The title of the post is a sure giveaway.  You must have guessed it right away, this song is a dentist’s song.  Correct and very right.

I remember a very interesting scene from a film, seen long back on Doordarshan, whose name I am not able to recall right now.  The scene is in a moving train.  I think it is a Kishore Kumar film, but not very sure.  A person is selling ‘barfi’ in the train.  (‘Barfi’ is an Indian sweet made from milk and sugar).  He is carrying a tray full of barfi pieces, and is trying to catch the attention of the travelers, to sell and to earn.  He is not having much success.  He comes in front of Kishore Kumar, and a dialogue ensues.  Kishore asks him why should I buy this barfi from you.  The seller gives some very simple answers like it is good to eat and he needs to earn money.  Kishore tells him he will never be able to make a sale with such kind of answers.  Then he offers to make the sales pitch for him.  He conjures up a funny and interesting jingle about the barfi on the spot, and tries to catch the attention of fellow travellers, singing the jingle he has just created.  Of course he is able to make a lot more sales.  The seller is very impressed, and the two strike a friendship that lasts through the film.

Hindi movies had some memorable “chana zor garam” songs beginning from as early as 1940. The first chana zor garam song was Chane jor garam babu in “Bandhan” (1940). The next such song came up in 1956 which was Chana zor garam babu main laayaa mazedaar in “Naya Andaaz”(1956). The next “Chana zor” song came up in “Kraanti”(1981).

Only if religion had not fallen out of favor with the film industry. Kya kahen, sab paise ki maya hai (what to say, it is all a money game). The producers say that the public is not interested. And so they will lose money if they make religious films. And so we have been seeing less and less of religious and spiritual themes on screen. Rather, I do not recall seeing any title that indicates a religious film, in the past decade or so.
