LOST AND FOUND-GEMS FROM UNRELEASED FILMS…..Song No. 3
—————————————————————

Writing on old film songs and that too on unreleased film songs is a very hard job. Firstly, hardly any information is available on Internet or in books. Secondly, controversies crop up on the statements made in the write up. India being notoriously hopeless as far as recording history of films, music or songs is concerned, it is extremely difficult to arrive at a definite and undisputable conclusion. Most artistes of those times are beyond our reach and if anyone is still alive, he may not remember the facts properly due to old age. In my work in this field, I have found that old age artistes either don’t remember or believe firmly in wrong/desired events and timings making a mess of the whole information.

While doing the monumental work of collecting credible data for his Hindi Film Geet kosh, Shri Harmandir singh Hamraz ji used to meet several old, retired and physically disabled artistes of old times. He has recorded his experiences in great details, in the ” Listeners’ Bulletins “. On reading these adventures of Mr. Singh, one realises how frustrated he must have felt when, instead of the artiste giving him information, Mr. Singh had to tell the artistes about his work, films, songs etc. Some artistes expressed their inabilities, few gave incorrect information and a few even refused to meet him, in spite of several requests !

If this was the case of a diehard researcher of HFM, then one can well imagine the plight of someone like me. We are at least lucky that some genuine helpful historians like, Shri Nalin ji Shah, Shishir Krishna Sharma ji, Giridharilal Vishwakarma ji, Shalin Bhatt ji, Rajnikumar Pandya ji, Harish Raghuwanshi ji, Dr. Surjit singh ji, Kamlakar Pasupuleti ji and few others are still around to provide correct information, when required.

Hundreds of controversies are already lying around unresolved, as far as songs, singers, films, actors etc are concerned. Digging old Gems from unreleased films is almost an invitation to fresh discussions. Every participant has his own opinion, making it just impossible to come to any definite conclusion. One can not avoid it, so the best thing is to try once and leave the hot discussion to others.

Leave aside the experts, these days,even books written by ‘experts’ have several mistakes. Quoting from such books is hazardous, because immediately such mistakes are credited to you. Even HFGK has several mistakes. Dhunon ki yatra by Pankaj Raag, Swaron ki yatra by Anil Bhargava, books by Sanjit Narvekar and Rajiv Vijaykar too have many mistakes. So, where does one go from here ?

One must understand that all these authors have done their research and work in very unfriendly, unhelpful conditions, so mistakes are bound to occur. It does not lower their image or statur eor the value of their efforts. Same is the case of writers like me, who has to work under a very inadequate supply of reliable information. Whatever is available is scattered and many times inaccessible too. All this should give the reader an idea how many constraints, and limitations and possible risks of controversies under which an author in this field has to work .

Today’s song is from a film called JASOOS-50s. Though it was not released, its songs were released in 1957. Earlier too, there were two more films called JASOOS. One was in 1947 with music by Hanuman Prasad Sharma and the other was a stunt film of 1955, starring Kamran, Kumkum etc. It had music by Iqbal ( Chhota Iqbal-not Iqbal Qureshi).

This unreleased film Jasoos was a Filmistan production and it had 9 songs(as listed in HFGK), composed by Anil Biswas. The singers were Geeta, Asha, Manna Dey and Talat. This film had a memorable song by Talat- ” Jeevan hai Madhuban” ,which was adapted from the tune of a popular Doris day number ” Que ser Que sera”. Anil Biswas himself had said this. This song is already posted on this Blog.

There was another song in the film, sung by Asha Bhosle and Manna Dey-“suno suno aye duniyawalon”. Does the mukhda seem familiar ?. Yes,you are right. This song’s tune was a copy of the famous Gandhiji song by Rafi-” suno suno aye duniyawalon bapu ke ye amar kahani” recorded in 1948, within a week’s time after Gandhi ji’s assassination. I am sure that most readers must have heard this song. This original song is also posted on this Blog. This famous song has some history. I reproduce here an edited extract from an article from scroll.in-

” Days after Hutatma Nathuram Godse assassinated Mohandas Gandhi on January 30, 1948, a group of musicians came together to compose their tribute to his life. The result, Suno suno aye duniyawalo Bapu ki yeh amar kahani, sung by Mohammad Rafi, was an instant success. Jawaharlal Nehru, who famously wept on hearing Aye mere watan ke logon, was similarly moved by this song.

The song, written by Rajendra Krishnan and composed by the brothers Husnlal and Bhagatram, reportedly sold a million copies in the first month of its release, an astonishing number even by today’s standards.

Rafi was only 24 years old at the time of the recording, but had already performed in public for 11 years before that. With the popularity of this song, he became a household name. On Independence Day in 1948, Nehru awarded Rafi a silver medal and two years later invited him to sing Lehrao tiranga lehrao on India’s first Republic Day.

The musicians wrote and composed this song in the style of a bhajan, with verses following the same repetitive tune and meter, punctuated every few lines by the refrain:Suno suno aye duniyawalo, Bapu ki yeh amar kahani.

Perhaps because of the hurried nature of the composition, the lyrics recount Gandhi’s life in a fairly straightforward manner, covering all the key points, from his education in London and his work in South Africa, to the longer, more sustained Independence and social upliftment movements in India.

The last verse is the most poignant. The music slows dramatically and Rafi, moved perhaps by fresh grief, recounts Gandhi’s last day, singing of how “ahinsa ke seene par hinsa ne goli barsayi.” Godse remains unnamed. ”

I am surprised to find that a composer like Anil Biswas,who was hailed as the ” Bhishma pitamaha” of Hindi film music, has two songs in one film having borrowed tunes. This must be surely an exception. Looking at the lyrics of the song, it seems to be a parody or a comedy song. In absence of Cast details from HFGK, it is difficult to make guesses on its picturisation.

Enjoy this special gem from Anil Biswas, using a borrowed tune. Kaif Irfani is the lyricist.

The audio itself goes silent as the last stanza begins which affects the listening pleasure of music lovers, but unfortunately this seems to be the only available link of this song as of now.
PS-Now an alternative link with full audio is provided. This song is taken,with thanks, from the collection of Dr. M.L.Kapoor ji,USA,which is provided on the site of Shri. Dr.Surjit singh ji.

Lyrics

yehi anjaam
ham jaison ka
aakhirkaar
hota hai ae ae
jabaan par uff
galey mein
jootiyon ka haar hota hai

ae ji
suno suno ae duniyaawaalon
paakitmaar ki ajab kahaani
suno suno ae duniyaawaalon
paakitmaar ki ajab kahaani

baithhe baithhe kadki ka jab ghor andhera chhaaya
chal ke kisi ki paakit maaren
dil ne ye farmaaya
arre haath kisi ki jeb mein daala
usne shor machaaya
ae pakdo pakdo pakdo pakdo

haath kisi ki jeb mein daala
usne shor machaaya
aaye thhe ham maal udaane
ulta hua safaaya
pade tadaatad
tadaatad
pade tadaatad
joote aise
ho gayi mushqil jaan bachaani ee ee
suno suno ae duniyaawaalon
paakitmaar ki ajab kahaani

arre sar ki aisi hui marammat
sar hua kangaal
surkh tamaatar jaise ho gaye
chaanton se ye gaal
toot gayi hai tangdi apni
langdi pad gayi chaal

yaahoo yaahoo
yaahoo yaahoo
oho
toot gayi hai tangdi apni
langdi pad gayi chaal
meri laila dekh ke bhaagi
manju ka ye haal
arre jiski khaatir yaaron hamne
kahaan kahaan ki khaaq hai chhaani ee ee

suno suno ae duniyaawaalon
paakitmaar ki ajab kahaani

arre aisi mili naseehat
ho gaye dil ke armaan thhande
chhoot gayin sab khoti baaten
aur sab khote dhandhe

khul gayin apni man ki aankhe
pehle thhe ham andhhe
aji pehle thhe ham andhhe
banke lala haridaas ji
dharam ke sachche bande

ab to hamne kasam uthha li
aaj se kainchi nahin chaalaani
suno suno ae duniyaawaalon
paakitmaar ki ajab kahaani

Sahir, from Ludhiana – the poet rebel or the rebel poet. With childhood spent in dearth and need, in the narrow lanes of the poorest sections of the city, he grew up with a strong disdain for the establishment and the rich and powerful of the society. When the poet within him awakened and stretched, one of the first poems (nazm) that expressed his bottled emotions – starts the line “Kasam Un Tang Galiyon Ki Jahaan Mazdoor Rehte Hain” (swearing upon the narrow lanes which are home to the poor laborers.

Remembering Sahir Sb on the anniversary of his passing away (25th October).

An icon that stands the tallest on the horizon of the Hindi film landscape. And a persona whose influence spans more than six decades of the history of this medium – a medium that itself is just over eight decades young now.

Dharam Devdutt Pishorimal Anand – born this day in Shakargarh, district Gurdaspur. The year – is irrelevant. With a persona like Dev Sb, the length of years behind was as meaningless as the number of years ahead of him were meaningful. The zest for life and the energy to be – the age and years did not matter. The only thing that mattered was the young-ness of the mind that simply refused to be afraid of the towering Time that overcomes all. Not that he professed any eternal life. And neither did he survive the scythe of reaper of time. But the time and the years that he lived and breathed, there was always another horizon to reach, always another mountain to scale. And the mantra for life simply was – young-ness of the mind.

HFM songs can be divided into hundreds of categories. What category of songs appeal to us depend on our long term conditioning (temperament) as well as on out short term frame of mind (mood). There are occasions when even people with positive outlook and cheerful disposition feel low. Under such circumstances, some people (depending on their temperament)like to listen to sad melancholic songs and drown in their sorrow in various ways, by withdrawing into their shell, taking to drinking etc. What one needs under such circumstances are songs that enable to to look at the silver linings in the dark cloud and lift your morale by telling you that the setback faced is temporary and brighter days are just round the corner. In other words, you need to listen to songs that inspire you to get back on your feet and get ready to take on the challenges that life has to offer.
