An important date today – 21st October. It is the birth date of two very dear performers who have held the center stage for sustained periods, enthralling many generations of filmgoers and music lovers – Shammi Kapoor and Helen. In their own spaces, both these artists ruled the silver screen through the decades of 1960s.

Shammi Kapoor’s transformation from a generic performer to the flamboyant young lover happened in the later part of 1950s, with films like ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’ (1957) and ‘Dil Deke Dekho’ (1959). And he continued to remain on the top for the next decade. After the mid 1970s, he transitioned into character roles and continued to regale the audiences with his style and histrionics. The curtain on this illustrious career came down a little over three years ago, on 14th August, 2011.

For Helen, the launching pad was really the iconic “Mera Naam Chin Chin Choo” in ‘Howrah Bridge’ (1958). And then on for two decades, she ruled as the princess of dance, going from strength to strength with each performance. For over two decades, her dance numbers were a fixture in the film production in Bombay. No matter the formula, her dances would definitely be part of the script.

Wishing Helen ji all the best in life – good health and happiness, on this day today.

A number of songs that include both the artists, are already showcased here on the blog. And locating new numbers which show both on the screen together, is becoming a tough task. I have been able to locate this dance number from the 1974 film ‘Chhote Sarkar’. Shammi Kapoor is present in the scene, but he is not singing. He is the artist who is sitting in one corner, sketching out the figure of the dancing belle.

‘Chhote Sarkar’ is produced by Pinky Films, Bombay and is directed by K Shankar. Cast of actors includes Shammi Kapoor, Sadhna, Shashikala, Sulochana, Sunder, Helen, Shammi, Asit Sen, Jagdish Raj, Rashid Khan, Uma Dutt and Rajan Kapoor etc. The songs of this film are penned by Rajendra Krishan and the music is by Shankar Jaikishan.

No matter the quality of the film and picturization, the performance that Helen presents is with full heart and energy. Simply cannot find a fault with that. Simply see and enjoy.


Song-Main kesar kasturi (Chhote Sarkaar)(1974) Singer-Krishna Kalle, Lyrics-Rajinder Krishan, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi

kahaan kahaan se aa jaate hain
raat ke raahi rang jamaane
beete din ki bhool ke thokar
raat ki taaza thokar khaane
kuchh jaane
kuchh pehchaane
aur kuchh in mein anjaane
kuchh jaane
kuchh pehchaane
aur kuchh in mein anjaane
main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi

aankh mein jhhoothi rangeeni hai
jeevan sabka pheeka pheeka
har maathe per lagaa huaa hai
gham ke chandan ka ik teeka
apna apna dard chhupaaye
chalte phirte ye saaye
apna apna dard chhupaaye
chalte phirte ye saaye
main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi

kadam kadam par jinke peechhe
maayusi ke lagey hain pehre
haath mein leker wo paimaane
dekh rahe hain khwaab sunehre
paagal mann ko yoon behlaayen
kadam kadam par dhokha khaayen
paagal mann ko yoon behlaayen
kadam kadam par dhokha khaayen
main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi
meri soorat ke deewaano
meri rangat par na jaao
meri khushboo ko pehchaano
main kesar kasturi

मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी

कहाँ कहाँ से आ जाते हैं
रात के राही रंग जमाने
बीते दिन की भूल के ठोकर
रात की ताज़ा ठोकर खाने
कुछ जाने
कुछ पहचाने
और कुछ इन में अंजाने
कुछ जाने
कुछ पहचाने
और कुछ इन में अंजाने
मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी

आँख में झूठी रंगीनी है
जीवन सबका फीका फीका
हर माथे पर लगा हुआ है
ग़म के चन्दन का इक टीका
अपना अपना दर्द छुपाए
चलते फिरते ये साये
अपना अपना दर्द छुपाए
चलते फिरते ये साये
मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी

कदम कदम पर जिनके पीछे
मायूसी के लगे हैं पहरे
हाथ में ले कर वो पैमाने
देख रहे हैं ख्वाब सुनहरे
पागल मन को यूं बहलाएं
कदम कदम पर धोखा खाएं
पागल मन को यूं बहलाएं
कदम कदम पर धोखा खाएं
मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी
मेरी सूरत के दीवानों
मेरी रंगत पर ना जाओ
मेरी खुशबू को पहचानो
मैं केसर कस्तूरी

The association of Pankaj Babu and RC Boral starts from their coming together as artists and producers at Calcutta Radio. No specific dates are available, but the expected period is the second half of the 1920s. This period also coincides with the prime of the silent films in India. Calcutta had become a main production center. Being recognized as music directors at Radio Calcutta, it was natural for RC Boral and Pankaj Mullick to be called upon for creating the orchestral music for silent films. In the days of soundless films, the music and sound effects were presented live in the theatre, using a live orchestra. What we recognize as background music today, was very much a ‘foreground’ entity in those years. The mood and the action on screen, was duly accompanied by live music that was played by the orchestra sitting just below and front of the screen. Probably no recordings of such musical works were made, else that in itself would have been a very valuable treasure for lovers of film music. wo films from 1931 are identified as the ones for which this pair had prepared the orchestral ‘foreground’ music. Produced by International Filmcraft, the title of the films are ‘Chesher Maye’ (‘चेशेर मेय’) and ‘Chorkanta’.

In 1931, when New Theatres started its production of sound movies, BN Sircar, the owner of the production house brought in this pair as the lead music directors in his company. The first film, in Bangla, was ‘Denaa Paona’. And the rest, as they say, is simply history.

In the first half of 1940s, a significant number of the artists, performers, and technical persons associated with the film industry, moved from Calcutta to Bombay. The volume of film production and quality suffered. In spite of that New Theatres continued to keep its shooting studios working. RC Boral and Pankaj Mullick continued to stay with the company and continued to create music for its films.

‘Chhota Bhai’ is a 1949 production from New Theatres, directed by Kartik Chatterji. The main cast of actors includes Molina Devi, Rajlakshmi, Shakur, Pal Mahendra, Maya Bose, Asit Sen, AH Shor, Khursheed, Chhabi Rai, Tulsi Chakravarty, Manorama, Natwar, Asha, etc. There are six songs in this film. The music is composed by Pankaj Mullick. The lyrics writing is shared between Rajendra Krishan, Prakash and Ramesh Pandey. This song is from the pen of Rajendra Krishan. For Rajendra Krishan, these were his initial years in the industry, having contributed lyrics to 5 films in 1947 and 1948. His career saw a significant rise in 1949 and 1950. In these two years he wrote lyrics for almost 25 films, some of which became very popular.

This film makes a debut on this blog today. I present a song in the voice of singer Manju and a chorus of voices. There is a male voice that also sings a line in every antaraa (stanza), but that voice is not identified. Girdharilal Vishwakma ji has helped identify this voice as belonging to Shakoor’s.

A song of philosophical contemplation, making some honest and realistic observations about life. Simple lyrics from Rajendra Krishan have been tuned into a simple group song scenario. Listen and enjoy.

Chorus

Lyrics

duniya mein har. . . kisi ki

duniya mein har kisi ki
paisa hai paas jiske
duniya hai us ke bas mein
duniyaa. . . usi ko mane
jo khaaye jhhoothi kasmen
aji tum him kaho samajh kar
tum hi kaho samajh kar
achhi hain kya ye rasmen
haan
achhi hain kya ye rasmen
duniya mein har kisi ki
kismet judaa judaa hai
haan
kismet judaa judaa hai
duniya mein har kisi ki
haaan. . .

har koi ek saa ho. . .
oonchaa naa koi neechaa
chhota ho na badaa ho
ban jaaye saari duniya
ban jaaye saari duniya
ek ghar to kya mazaa hai
haan
ek ghar to kya mazaa hai
duniya mein har kisi ki
kismet judaa judaa hai
haan
kismet judaa judaa hai
duniya mein har kisi ki

I am sure that quite a few regulars of this blog must be wondering why an Amitabh Bachchan song had not appeared so far, seeing that today is his 72nd birthday (DOB 11 october 1942). As it is, I typically work up from older songs to newer ones in a day. I have discussed four songs of 1940s and 1950s today whereas Amitabh Bachchan made his debut in Hindi movies only in late 1960s. :)

1970s, especially the earlier years of the decade was the time when I was at my precocious best as a music lover. I tended to remember the details of all popular songs of those days.

Suraiyya is one singer whose songs are now almost fully covered in the blog and we have the full, accurate and verified list of her songs. There are now less than twenty Suraiyya songs that remain to be discussed. The encouraging fact is that around four or five of these songs are available as of now. Yesterday nahm discussed one song which I was unable to locate till now. Today I am discussing another as yet unavailble Suraiyya song.

Today (23 september 2014) is the death anniversary of Rajinder Krishan, a versatile and prolific lyricist of the golden era. He made his debut as a lyricist in late 1940s and he was supposedly past his prime by 1970s, but he continued to pen some superb songs even in 1970s. 1973 was a year when Rajinder Krishan wrote songs in “Banarasi Baabu”, “Jwaar Bhaata”, “Kahaani Kismat Ki” and “Blackmail” ! People loved the songs of these movies, majority of them (including myself) without knowing the details of these songs.

Today (23 september 2014) is the death anniversary of Rajinder Krishan (6 june 1919- 23 september 1987). For an artist of his calibre and stature, his is surprisingly less known among music lovers vis a vis some of his contemporary lyricists. So much so that wikipedia is not even aware of his exact date of death or even the exact year of his death. I have often said that Ravi was the creator of iconic songs that everyone hummed but few people knew the composer behind them. I think that the same can be said about Rajinder Krishan as a lyricist. Many of the well known evergreen songs of the golden era of HFM are penned by him.
