Not being a speaker of Hindi, I know that I miss a great deal of nuance in both song and storyline in not understanding the lyrics to Hindi film songs. I am sure that is the case here too, but all the same the picturization of this song is so packed with information that for once I don’t really feel that deprived. His trademark lack of subtlety is one of Manmohan Desai’s greatest gifts to non-Indian fans of Hindi cinema, as is his trademark lunacy to all of mankind. An abundance of both mark this song as one of my favorites.

My first introduction to Uttam Kumar was way back in the childhood years when, for a long time, I used to confuse a lot between him and Biswajeet. It was in the years when watching television was a new adventure every day. One would scour around the neighborhood and get inside a friend’s or a familiar person’s home. Of course, as an uninvited intruder, one had to watch whatever was being telecast. In any case, Doordarshan was the only channel and there was no other option :). Some known programs would be a fixture that everyone watched. At other times, one would just intrude into whatever was playing on the screen.

Just out of curiosity, I scanned the blog, for the listing of songs that have been composed by Chitragupt. And I find a peculiar thing. As a composer, Chitragupt started his career in 1946, and continued to be active till the early 80s. On the blog we have just about a dozen of his songs listed, for the first 10 years of his career (1946-1955), with no songs listed for the first four years i.e. from 1946 to 1949. When I tried to check online, I find that actually very little of his works are available online from this period. But still there are some. And I will try to post some of them over the coming few days.

In old Hindi movies, especially those of 1950s and 1960s, we often see songs picturised on “Taanga”, also called “Tonga”, not to be confused with a country of this name. :)

“Taanga” was actually a mode of public transport in India those days. With time, Taanga has all but vanished as a mode of public transport in India. But they have not become extinct. One can still find them in some small towns of India. I have noticed them in small places in Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh etc. In fact, one can see them in Fatehpur Sikri near Agra in UP. I recall that we (I, my wife and daughter) actually rode on a Taanga to go to Fatehpur Sikri a few years ago.

As I see in the “some stats” page, Lyricist poet Majrooh Sultanpuri has 525 songs in the blog, which is the highest so far for a lyricist in the blog. The word “Majrooh” could not have been his real name. It is the “takkhallus” (Pen name) of the poet. “Majrooh” means injured/pained or a someone broken hearted and in pain. Others may have a different view of this words meaning, but I hate to go to online dictionaries to find meanings of urdu words. I would rather go by the feel.
