Missing Films of 1960s – 14
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

With this post, I return to one of the requests of Arvinder ji that has been pending for some time now. His reminders keep coming to me, and there are more pending requests from him lined up in my inbox.

This song can well be the continuation of the ‘Memory Ticklers’ series. A lilting melody that was often heard on the radio when I used to regularly listen, and then later it seemed to have faded from the memories. Depend on Arvinder ji to recall and remind to dig up such gems to once again be played and listened.

Missing Films of 1960s – 13
– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

As it is, I am able to maintain little regularity and consistency in posting the songs that I so dearly want to. And then there are other factors that keep distracting me and taking me away from my own planned tracks (pun intended :) ). So I get to start preparing a particular song for posting. And then a message will intervene – “do you have such and such song? Goodness, I just need to listen to it now” or a variation is that someone else, very dear to the requestor wants to listen to it. And so, one more draft continues to sit in the wordpress and my hard disk, and completely different song starts getting prepared.

Mohammed Rafi – ‘अ’  से  ‘ह’ तक  (From ‘अ’ to ‘ह’) – 4
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

xईx  ‘उ’
“उन्हें मंज़िल नहीं मिलती जो किस्मत के सहारे हैं”

Ah yes, you notice that I skipped the vowel ‘ई’ and jumped straight to the vowel ‘उ’. The reason is that in all the film and non film songs that I could access and check, all songs starting with ‘ई’ have already been posted. With its typical usage profile in the language, there are very few songs that start with words that start with ‘ई’ in Rafi Sb’s list of songs. So I move on to the next vowel in sequence.

This is a fun video dance-cum-song from film Labela-66, featuring Master Bhagwan and Kumkum in the scene.

I am discussing a song from the 1960s after a long time. Even the last song of 1960s discussed by me had come after a long gap. Songs from the 1960s, especially from the latter half of the decade were not to my taste as much as I relish songs from the earlier years. I have selected today’s song for the purpose of discussing the life and career events of Master Bhagwan showing his other less known side.

Mukesh and his Composers – 10
————————————————

Wishing Usha Khanna on her 74th birth anniversary, a celebration full of all things good and happy.

For some reason, Usha Khanna never received the recognition and fame that she so rightfully deserves. She is not the first, but definitely is the most successful and talented of a handful of female composers in the Hindi film industry. Born on 7th October 1941, she composed music for her first film at a very young age of 17 with ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ 1959. This was also after more than one year of a sort of apprenticeship and convincing the world that composing was an easy task for her.

Songs to Tickle Your Memory – 26
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

In 1963, when Sunil Dutt lip-synced the songs in the film ‘Gumrah’, that was the time when the name of a till-then-relatively-unknown singer became a household name.  And yes, it also earned him the first of his three Filmfare awards for the best male singer.  The song – “Chalo Ek Baar Phir Se Ajnabi Ban Jaayen Hum Dono”.  The singer – Mahendra Kapoor.

Remembering Mahendra ji on the anniversary of his passing away today – 27th September.

Dev Saab – the phenomena continues.  With coming newer generation, it may fade away.  But there is still many more generations to go before that can happen.

Remembering Dev Saab on the anniversary of his birth today – 26th September.  He would have been 92 years young today.  And I am sure, he is, wherever he maybe now.

If one were to pick style as the defining criterion, and pick the one male lead actor who best symbolizes this measure, the first name that will come to mind is Feroze Khan.

“Saaz Aur Aawaaz”(1966) was directed by Subodh Mukherji. The movie had Joy Mukherjee, Saira Banu, Kanhaiya Lal, Padma, Niranajan Sharma, Asit Sen, Mumtaz etc in it.

This movie had nine songs in it. I was under the impression that all the songs of this movie were already covered in the blog, with the last song discussed in 2013 itself. Now it turns out that I had had failed in counting the songs of this movie. The fact that I had not discussed one of the songs from the movie was pointed out by H M Aparna, who takes her role of tagging YIPPEED songs very seriously and who often detects songs whose links were missing despite the songs being discussed in the past. Now she has pointed out a song from “Saaz aur Aawaaz”(1966) which I had actually failed to discuss and still I had painted the title of this movie orange declaring that all nine songs of the movie were discussed.
