Sahir Ludhianvi will always be remembered for the respect he brought to the lyricists of Hindi films. His arrival in the Hindi film industry set a bench mark for lyricists which brought about a transformation in the style of lyrics writing for Hindi film songs from the 5Os through 7Os. His stock went so high after the success of Pyaasa (1957) and Naya Daur (1957) that some producers started signing him first before deciding on the music director or sometime even the main cast during his hey days. He ruled the Hindi film industry during most of his 3 decades of association with it. This was despite the fact that he had no opportunity to work with three of the top music directors of his time viz Naushad, Husnlal Bhagatram and Shanker-Jaikishan. And two other top music directors namely S D Burman and O P Nayyar refused to associate with him after 1957. How did he manage to stay aloft in the Hindi film industry? The answer is that the quality of his lyrical poetry far outweighed his temperament and his rigid conditions for writing songs. Let us see his report card in the following table:

Music Directors No. of Films No. of Songs
S D Burman 18 137
Ravi 19 129
N Datta 18 115
Roshan 8 60
Khaiyyam 5 41
Laxmikant-Pyarelal 6 32
R D Burman 4 25
Madan Mohan 3 24
O P Nayyar 5 23
Jaidev 3 2O
Chitragupta 2 13
Others(19) 24 1O5
Total 115 724

NOTE: This table has been prepared from the list of songs available at sahirludhianvi.com which has been counter checked with http://www.myswar.com. Ultimately, I have gone by the latter source. There could be some minor discrepancies because of version songs.

Sahir wrote 724 songs in 115 films for 30 music directors. More than 5O% of his songs were written for just 3 music directors – S D Burman, Ravi and N Datta. It is significant to note that Sahir worked with S D Burman only during 1951-57 but still he wrote his maximum number of songs for him. A few prominent music directors in the ‘Others’ category with whom he worked were Anil Biswas, C Ramchandra, Hemant Kumar and Kalyanji Anandji .

Period wise song output of Sahir Ludhianvi throws some interesting statistics. During 1948-6O, he wrote 3O9 songs which came down to 241 songs during 1961-7O and further declined to 174 songs during 1971-82. Surely, his condition of getting remuneration of one rupee more than the music directors and his rigid stand of not writing lyrics to pre-set tunes had affected his output. But financially, he may not have been worse off as during this lean period, he constructed his bungalow ‘Parchhaayian’ sometime in mid 7Os and stayed there with a fleet of cars until his death in October 25, 198O.

Sahir Ludhianvi was almost like ‘in house’ lyricist for B R Films (B R Chopra) and for Yash Raj Films (Yash Chopra) who wrote lyrics for most of their films. Yash Chopra, who directed films, ‘Joshila’ (1973), ‘Deewaar’ (1975) and ‘Trishul’ (1978) produced under the banner of Trimurti Films of Gulshan Rai, also entrusted Sahir Ludhianvi for writing songs for these films.

I am presenting here one of the songs from the film TRISHUL (1978) ‘aapki mehki huyi zulf ko kahte hain ghata’ sung by Yesudas and Lata Mangeshkar under the music direction of Khaiyyam. The song is picturised on Sanjeev Kumar and Waheeda Rehman when the credit titles of the film are being shown on the screen. While the lover admires his beloved and tells her that he calls her intoxicated eyes flowers. She smiles and tells him that she is nothing. It is he who feels that way. Then she teases him saying that his admiration of her is nothing but his desire filled glances. In the next, she teases him further by saying that his admiration of her is something which is difficult to believe. Such type of praises reflects his ultimate intention. Of course at the end they feel that they are fortunate to have each other for company, the fructifying desires of the centuries of both of them to be with each other.

It is a beautifully worded romantic song nicely picturised without much of disturbances from the credit title display on the screen.

Now how come this song has not yet made it to the blog? Well I think the main reason could be that there are so many such wonderful gems still out there that I am sure we are going to continue rediscovering them and posting them here, for a long time still to come. And yet, on listening to this particular song, memories of the radio listening days are revived and the mind says, where has this song be sitting for all these years.

Remembering Talat Mehmood on his 88th birth anniversary today, the 24th of February.

The moon generally does not venture out during the daytime. For if it does, then no one can see it, and no one would pay any attention – for daytime is the time of the sun. No matter however enchanting the moon may seem by itself, daytime is not the time for it.
