Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

‘ए’
“एक एक एक, एक चाय की प्याली”

This song will definitely remind you of another very popular Rafi solo song. No prizes for guessing; the similarity of rendition of the first line is a dead giveaway. Yes, you will recognize the song immediately. Both songs are equally fast paced. however, after the first line, the similarity ends. The other song has already been identified as a Johnny Walker song, based on information provided in comments by one of our readers. My strong hunch is that even this song should be a Johnny Walker song. His name appears in the cast of actors of this film.

‘Doosron ki khushi me apni khushi dhoondh lo’- This is the message that ace director Hrishikesh Mukherji conveyed in many of his movies, be it ‘Anand’, ‘Bawarchi’ or even that mediocre ‘Sabse bada Sukh’. But, perhaps, the first one amongst his movies to propagate this message was that little film ‘MemDidi’.(1961).

Fabulous Foot Tappers – 6
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Goodness, more than 5 months since the last post in this series.  Starting in April, it was keeping a slow but regular pace till July, and then. . .

Anyways, back to one of my favorite genres – songs with a wonderful melody and a foot tapping beat that simply makes them irresistible hummers. One listens, and the mind simply wants to continue humming them, over and over again.  There are many such songs, and practically all of them are popular and well known. The thing that I am trying with this series is to locate the unfamiliar and less heard gems of this category, which have remained anonymous, mostly for the reason that they are from films that either did not get released, or films that remained obscure and unheard of themselves.

Missing Films of 1960s – 7
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As we are moving into the 1960s, exploring for the films that are yet to be showcased on our blog, I have already introduced 4 films from 1961 and then I had moved into 1962, adding 2 films for that year.  But with today’s post, I revert back to 1961. Clearly, there is one more film from 1961 that I missed. The film is ‘Zamaana Badal Gaya’. Its songs are available, and had not yet been introduced here.  An oversight on my part.

Sureeli Suman – 4
————————–
1961 mythological Black and White film ‘Jai Bhawani’ was directed by Dhirubhai Desai, under ‘Prabha Pictures’ banners. The star-cast included Jayashri Gadkar, Manhar Desai, Lata Sinha, Sapru, Veena, Niranjan Sharma, Ram Mohan, Master Dabbar etc. HFGK is silent about the lyricists, but the other source on internet gives that credit to ‘Gopal Singh Nepali’ (1926-1963). The music is credited to S Mohinder. Three out of eight songs are already discussed on this Blog and this one, a solo by Suman Kalyanpur, will be the fourth one.

The term ‘cancelled’ is not a difficult word to decipher and understand – something incorrect, or outdated, or not required. It simply gets ‘cancelled’ – like a train or a plane reservation, a defective product coming off from the assembly line, or even an appointment that is not required, or cannot be met.  Besides this general usage and its association with sundry and trivial experiences in life, I have come across this term in two other fields, where the meaning and intent of usage turned out to be very specific, and took some time to understand and assimilate it.

A few days back, when Atul ji was in Delhi, we were together with our local group for an afternoon get together on the second day of his stay here. Atul ji has written about it in his report out with the song “Tu Jo Dil Le Ke Mere Peechhe Peechhe Aayega”.  Javed Bhai, one of our group regulars started the topic about how many Hindi film songs are there, and whether we have already got most of them on the blog.  To which Atul ji replied that as per Geet Kosh, we have approximately 44,000 songs listed for the first five decades of our film industry, i.e. from 1931 to 1980.  Out of these, we a little over 11,000 songs on the blog so far, which works out to be 25% completion only.  We have come here after a journey of about seven years.  Going by this background, we surely are going to be pretty busy for many more years to come, just to get all the available songs till 1980, on to the blog.

Good intentions are always the undoing. I am sure you would have also experienced this. मेरे साथ तो ये बहुत होता है. Take the case of this series itself.  The second song is being posted today.  When I initiated this series on 30th September with the song “Nigaahon Se Chhup Kar Kahaan Jaaiyega”, I had all the intentions to post one song at least every other day if not every day.  The available list of songs is all identified.  And see, it is the 11th day now that the second post is coming on.  क्या कहना है good intentions का.
