Some songs do this to you. You may be reading the mukhdaa, off and on, for days, or even months. And still it does not ring a bell anywhere. The memory of that song is so well buried under layers and layers of other things that merely the words do not mean anything. But put it on the player and let the sound come to you. The connect is immediate, and suddenly the miles thick layer of forgetfulness evaporates in one blink of the eye. You will immediately want to get up, and just move – OMG, this is the song. . . after so many years. . . literally in my face for oh so long . . . goodness. And if the song is as full of delight as this one, you will not be able to control the urge to dance along, or may be just tap your feet, or maybe just drum with your fingers, and surely you will want to sing along. And all the while, thanking whoever makes such things happen, that you have re-discovered this song. Like meeting a very very dear friend, unexpectedly, after years of being away. Isn’t that feeling. . . just simply absolutely fantastic.

That is what happened recently, with me and this song. Searching for a song to add to my post for music director Robin Bannerjee, I was looking at the Geet Kosh, and lists of songs in my collection. I would have glossed over this one so many times, before I just decided to play a list of Robin Bannerjee’s songs in sequence. And when this song began to play, I simply had to get up from my chair, so euphoric was the feeling inside, and it required a great force to keep my voice to myself, but could not keep my emotions from welling out of my eyes. A very old friend from the radio listening days, and even then, not heard too frequently, since both the film and the artists are of that category, which is crowded out of the playing lists by other ‘hits’. But yes, counting the blessings; I am so glad to be re-joined with this song, after decades of separation. And I am just not being able to replay it enough. It is like the 10K Yipeeee. . . of Pradeep ji, ten times over. :)

Remembering Robin Bannerjee on the anniversary of his passing away (27th July).

Robin Bannerjee – a prodigal son of Bengal. A music director whose name is associated with such wonderful and everlasting gems like, “Tum Jo Aao To Pyaar Aa Jaaye” (‘Sakhi Robin‘, 1962), “Aankhon Aankhon Mein Har Ek Raat Guzar Jaati Hai” (‘Marvel Man’, 1964), “Tujhe Doon Main Kya” (‘Insaaf Kahaan Hai’, unreleased film from 1950s), “Hamen Un Raahon Par Chalna Hai Jahaan Girna Aur Sambhalnaa Hai” (‘Masoom’, 1960), ‘Anjuman Sitaaron Ki, Ye Mehfil Bahaaron Ki” (‘Rocket Tarzan’, 1963), “Iraada Na Tha Aap Se Pyaar Ka” (‘Aandhi Aur Toofaan’, 1964). . . and many more. His destiny was to be confined to stunt films of the type that reminds one of Tarzan and circus and space travel. But I get ahead of myself.

As I tried to search for information about him, there is not too much that I am able to collect. Most sources simply present a brief about his work, and not much about his life. But then what little is available, when combined with the quality of music he created, it makes a very fascinating reading. Born in Calcutta, he had an intense passion for music and films right from childhood. At the age of 15, he ran away from home and travelled to Bombay, with the dream making in big in Hindi cinema. One reference notes that he reached Bombay with just the clothes on his back. For period of time, he simply used to take bath at Juhu beach, late in the night, so he could wash and dry the only set of clothes he had. Sometimes, it is a wonder, the type of struggle and the circumstances some of these artists had to go through. Apparently, true passion is a driver that many of us armchair audiences will not be able to comprehend.

Months of visiting studios, producers and any friendly references that he could muster up, slowly paid dividends. He made an entry into the stage and theatre world in Bombay, and started getting work as a musician and a singer. A notable assignment at this time was with Sunil Dutt, who staged a play as part of a competition at Bombay’s St Xaviers College. The young Robin worked as the music director for the play, and also got to sing in the play. As connectedness and references led him forward into the film world, he got his first assignment as a music director with the banner Film Trust of India, for the bilingual film ‘Insaaf Kahaan Hai’ that was simultaneously to be made in Hindi and Sindhi. The songs were prepared and recorded in 1958, but the film itself could not be completed for release. Thankfully, the songs of this film are available, and in the voices of Hemant Da and Geeta Dutt, it is a string of some very lovely melodies that Robin created for his debut venture. Songs like “Tujhe Doon Main Kya, Ye Tu Hi Bataa”, “Hey Babu, Hey Bandhu” and “Sainyaan Bedardi” still have the power to stir the listener’s emotions and interests.

His next film is ‘Masoom’ (1960). The music direction for this film was actually assigned to Hemant Kumar. After recording the iconic “Naani Teri Morni Ko Mor Le Gaye” , Hemant Da had to be away out of the country for some reasons. The mantle of composing the remaining songs for the film was handed to Robin, who created such timeless classics like “Hamen Un Raahon Pe Chalna Hai” and “Ye Haath Hi Apni Daulat Hain” .

The songs captured the attention of listeners and producers and new assignments found their way to him. 1961 saw the release of ‘Wazir e Azam’. The film was a disaster. However, the music once again stood out amidst the flop, and two songs by Suman Kalyanpur garnered some attention – “Tu Kahaan, Main Kahaan, Moonh Chhupaaye Huye Chandni Ro Rahi Hai” and “Na Hum Tum Na Zaalim Zamaana Rahega”. This was followed in 1962 with what can be considered Robin’s most successful film – ‘Sakhi Robin’. The soft paced composition of “Tum Jo Aao To Pyaar Aa Jaaye” sounds fresh and ticklish even today, half a century later. In 1963 came ‘Rocket Tarzan’ and with it came the peerless melodies like “Yaa Rabba Rabba Ho, Kahan Jaata Hai Dil Le Ke Mera Ai Ai Yo”, “Unko Humse Badi Shikayat Hai, Pyar Karna Humari Aadat Hai” and the oh so lilting aria of “Anjuman Sitaaron Ki, Ye Mehfil Bahaaron Ki”. 1964 saw another hit with the Dara Singh and Mumtaz starrer ‘Aandhi Aur Toofaan” with wonderful songs that caught the attention of listening public – songs like “Iraada Na Tha Aapse Pyaar Ka” and “Dil Laya Main Bachaa Ke Punjab Se”.

Despite a body of work that sparkled with melody and impressed the listeners, the career of Robin Bannerjee remained confined to films whose names would immediately identify them to be B/C grade stunt movies. Names like ‘Hukam Ka Ekka’, ‘Marvel Man’, ‘Tarzan and Delilah’ all from 1964, ‘Flying Circus’ and ‘Tarzan and King Kong’ in 1965, ‘Rustom Kaun’ and ‘Spy In Goa’ in 1966, and ‘London Express’ in 1968. Sampling the music from these films is a like a trip through the garden of sweet and endearing melodies. But alas, his elevation to grade A films was just not to be.

Seventies was not a good time for Robin. He had one release in 1973 – ‘Phir Aaya Toofaan’, and another film – ‘Raaz Ki Baat’ remained unrleased. Interesting to note that the latter film has recently become available on the internet. There followed two accidents in his life, which confined him to bed and for recuperation for most part of the 1970s. As his life slowly ebbed away, so did his career. He passed away this day in 1986.

‘Sakhi Robin’ is a film from 1962, produced under the banner of People Pictures and directed by BJ Patel. The word ‘Sakhi’ (with an extra emphasis on the ‘kh’ sound) is actually an Urdu word with the meaning generous, helpful, beneficent. The cast of actors is Ranjan, Shalini Chonkar, Rajan Kapoor, Nilofer, Babu Raje, Vishwa Mehra, Shri Bhagwan, Dalpat, Habeen, Shyam, etc.

The six songs in this film are written by Yogesh (aka Yogesh Gaud). Two wonderful melodies from this film are already posted here. This is the third song from this film – song that is going to surprise and steal your heart away. The pace is terrific, and the changeover between the main singer and chorus is just delightful, as is the percussion beat when the singer sings the half line – ‘dekho re aaya’. A very wonderfully crafted song.

A word about the singer. The voice is that of Suman Kalyanpur. A very very interesting note at this point is the fact that Robin did never get Lata to sing for him. However, the manner in which he has used other signers, especially Suman Kalyanpur, one does not feel the lack of Lata ji’s voice in his body of work.

This is a song of the farmer, who is expressing delight and happiness on seeing the waves of golden crop in the fields. Not just that the song has been crafted so beautifully, it has also been presented on screen with real good taste. I am sure as you listen to it, you will not be able to stop yourself from pressing the replay button.

Simply wonderful. Listen and enjoy.

Chorus

Lyrics

dekho re aaya mausam suhaana
dekho re aaya mausam suhaa. . .na
kaise kahoon sone ka rang aaj lehrayaa
dekho re aaya
dekho re aaya mausam suhaana

saji huyi aaj hariyaali
jaise koi dulhan matwali
saji huyi aaj hariyaali
jaise koi dulhan matwaali
jhool rahaa pawan hindolay
ho jhool rahaa pawan hindolay
jaise koi sapna chhaaya
dekho re aaya
dekho re aaya mausam suhaana
dekho re aaya mausam suhaa. . .na
kaise kahoon sone ka rang aaj lehrayaa
dekho re aaya mausam suhaana

udne lagey rang bhare baadal
goonj uthi kheton mein paayal
udne lagey rang bhare baadal
goonj uthhi kheton mein paayal
jhoom uthi phir se umnagen
o jhoom uthi phir se umnagen
dil ne naya geet gaya
dekho re aaya
dekho re aaya mausam suhaana
dekho re aaya mausam suhaa. . .na
kaise kahoon sone ka rang aaj lehrayaa
dekho re aaya mausam suhaana

dharti ki aaj hai diwaali ee
jhoome har ek phool har ek daali
dharti ki aaj hai diwaali ee
jhoome har ek phool har ek daali
door kahin boley papiharaa
o door kahin boley papiharaa
mann ye mera sharmaaya
dekho re aaya
dekho re aaya mausam suhaana
dekho re aaya mausam suhaa. . .na
kaise kahoon sone ka rang aaj lehrayaa
dekho re aaya mausam suhaana
oh ho o ho o ho
aa ha aa ha aa haa
oh ho o ho o ho
aa ha aa ha aa haa
oh ho o ho o ho
aa ha aa ha aa haa
aaa aaa aaaa aaa

देखो रे आया मौसम सुहाना
देखो रे आया मौसम सुहा ॰ ॰ ना
कैसे कहूँ सोने का रंग आज लहराया
देखो रे आया
देखो रे आया मौसम सुहाना

सजी हुई आज हरियाली
जैसे कोई दुल्हन मतवाली
सजी हुई आज हरियाली
जैसे कोई दुल्हन मतवाली
झूल रहा पावन हिंडोले
हो झूल रहा पावन हिंडोले
जैसे कोई सपना छाया
देखो रे आया
देखो रे आया मौसम सुहाना
देखो रे आया मौसम सुहा ॰ ॰ ना
कैसे कहूँ सोने का रंग आज लहराया

उड़ने लगे रंग भरे बादल
गूंज उठी खेतों में पायल
उड़ने लगे रंग भरे बादल
गूंज उठी खेतों में पायल
झूम उठीं फिर से उमंगें
ओ झूम उठीं फिर से उमंगें
दिल ने नया गीत गया
देखो रे आया
देखो रे आया मौसम सुहाना
देखो रे आया मौसम सुहा ॰ ॰ ना
कैसे कहूँ सोने का रंग आज लहराया

धरती की आज है दिवाली
झूमे हर एक फूल हर एक डाली
धरती की आज है दिवाली
झूमे हर एक फूल हर एक डाली
दूर कहीं बोले पपीहरा
ओ दूर कहीं बोले पपीहरा
मन ये मेरा शरमाया
देखो रे आया

देखो रे आया मौसम सुहा ॰ ॰ ना
कैसे कहूँ सोने का रंग आज लहराया
देखो रे आया मौसम सुहाना
ओह हो ओ हो ओ हो

Internet became available to public in 1995, and it became available to Indian public in 1996. I became exposed to it in 1997 and I began to have internet connection at home from 1998 onwards.

Development of internet took place rapidly and internet forums came into existence soon. I was a cricket enthusiast and I was looking forward to join a cricket forum. I could not find an Indian cricket forum of my liking. There were cricket forums populated by loud, jingoist and abusive ignorants but those sites were not my cup of tea. I finally settled for a Pakistani cricket forum called pakcricbuzz (by now defunct). This was quite a sensible cricket forum and it had some Indians too in it. One Indian called Saurabh was one of its moderators. This happened in the second half of 2004.

Aah, the wonderful world of Chitragupt’s melodies. A composer par excellence, whose creations do never cease to surprise, as one continues to come encounter heretofore songs that seemed to have got lost in the folds of time. This song today is a very old friend from the radio listening days, that dipped below the horizons of memories for some time.

When the going gets completely traditional and classical, then the music directors always turn to that voice, which simply never ceases to amaze with its range and its control over the notes and the ragas. It is the voice of Manna Dey, the last of the old school classical singers, with a firm grounding in the traditional art form of music of the sub continent. A singer whose voice is the natural resting place for such classical icons as “Bhay Bhanjanaa Vandanaa Sun Hamaari”, “Laaga Chunri Mein Daag”, “Sur Na Saje Kya Gaaun Main”, “Kaun Aaya Mere Mann Ke Dwaare”, “Poochho Na Kaise Main Ne Rain Bitaai”, “Tere Naina Talaash Karen Jise”, “Aayo Kahaan Se Ghanshyam”, “Udd Jaa Bhanwar”, “Chali Raadhe Raani Akhiyon Mein Paani”, “Banaawo Batiyaan Haaye Kaahe Ko Jhoothi”, “Tu Chhupi Hai Kahaan” – and many more such fabulous classical creations.

There are some songs which I found on youtube and saved for future posts. My Draft boxes are full of them. I was just going through the draft boxes, to sent such lyrics to Atul ji, where inevitably some songs are so touching and truthful, that I decided to write the post myself.

Raaga Maalas in Hindi Films

Very recently Atul-ji posted a classical song by Ustad Ameer Khan from Baiju Bawara. He has wonderfully written about the minority of film music listeners, who likes and could appreciate classical music.(I wish I had a small portion of his ability to put forward the ideas like him.) Being in that minority, I am thankful again to Atul-ji to post my classically based offerings, without my asking or making a stir for a quota of reservation for such minorities.
