5059 Post No. : 16973

Today 25th May’2022 is Remembrance Day of actor Sunil Dutt (born as Balraj Dutt, 6 June 1929 — 25 May 2005).

Sunil Dutt was active in ‘films’ around us when I was growing up in seventies. I remember to have watched his ‘black & white’ movies like ‘Ek Phool Chaar Kaante’, ‘Main Chup Rahoongi’, ‘Beti Bete’, ‘Gaban’, and movies like ‘Padosan’ and ‘Reshma Aur Shera’ in our colony club when I was a child. I do not remember correctly but I think I had also watched his ‘Post Box no.999’ as well.

Then I have vague memories of watching some of his movies with my parents, or brothers and cousins, and /or elders (like my Uncle) in the family. These are movies like ‘Sadhu Aur Shaitan’, ‘Heera’, ‘Himalay Se Ooncha’, ‘Nagin’, ‘Nehle Pe Dehla’, ‘Shaan’, ‘Yaari Dushmani’, etc.

I watched ‘Jaani Dushman’ alone as my Dad gave me ‘conditional permission’ that I will not take my younger brothers to watch the movie with me. (But the permission came only after I was punished 🙂 the day before it. I had mentioned this episode in my post on the movie ‘Jaani Dushman’.)

As a child we were always interested in watching movies irrespective of the star cast and I enjoyed watching all the above movies.

I get to watch his ‘Rocky’, ‘Dard Ka Rishta’, ‘Raaj Tilak’, ‘Watan Ke Rakhwaale’ ‘Mother India’, ‘Gumraah’, ‘Hamraaz’, ‘Mera Saaya’, ‘Insaan Jaag Uttha’, ‘Amrapali’, ‘Mujhe Jeene Do’, ‘Waqt’, ‘Khandan’ (these I watched during the years from 1983 to 1988. I passed out matriculation in 1983, stayed Akola with my grandparents for my study (but actually playing cricket and watching movies than focusing on studies. From 1985 to 1988 I was staying at Parli Vaijnath (Maharashtra)).

The movies I mentioned above are not appearing in their chronological order of release.

From the above movies, I remember I had watched ‘Padosan’ again in later years also on VCR, TV and online.

In the recent years I had watched his ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’ in 2006 in Kachchh. And very recently I watched his ‘Aaj Aur Kal’ online in 2017 when I was in Kenya.

I have not watched today’s movie which is ‘Meharbaan-1967’.

“Meharbaan-1967” was directed by A. Bhim Singh for ‘A.V.M., Madras’. It was produced by A.V. Meiyappan.

It had Ashok Kumar, Sunil Dutt, Nutan, Mehmood, Sudesh Kumar, Bhalla, Shaymlal, Jankidas, Umesh Sharma, Ramavtaar, Rajkishore, Mukri, Sulochana, Shashikala, Shyama, Raj Mehra, Ramesh Deo, Ashim Kumar, Kumari Padma, Master Levi, Jayanthi, Bharathi and others.

“Meharbaan-1967” had seven songs in it that were written by Rajinder Krishan. Following is the list of songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-IV (1961-1970).

Lyrics

Aayega aayega

Ik din jo meri chhoti si

Blog Day :

Today 24th May’2022 is the (1 October 1919 − 24 May 2000) twenty-second ‘Remembrance Anniversary’ of legendary lyricist Majrooh Sultanpuri.

On our blog more than one thousand one hundred songs penned by Majrooh Sultanpuri are already posted.

Today 24th May’2022 is sixty-seventh birth anniversary (born on 24th May’1955) of Music Director (& lyricist too) Rajesh Roshan.
As per statistics mentioned on the blog Rajesh Roshan has composed music for more than 842 songs. Out of these 842 songs, 153 songs are covered in the blog.

Majrooh Sultanpuri as a lyricist, and Rajesh Roshan as a music-director have collaborated in many movies. They have given Hindi Films many memorable compositions.

Their association started with Rajesh Roshan’s debut movie ‘Kunwaaraa Baap-1974’ and continued till ‘Kya Kehna-2000’, in between delivering many hit, popular and memorable songs.

Today we are going to listen to one such composition where the lyrics are written by Majrooh ji and music is composed by Rajesh Roshan.

The today’s song is from the movie ‘Janta Hawaldar-1979’.

“Jantaa Hawaldaar-1979” was directed by Mehmood for ‘Balaji Pictures, Bombay’.

It was produced by Manoherlal P. Chhabria and Manoher P. Jaisingh.

It had Ashok Kumar, Rajesh Khanna, Yogita Bali, Kanhaiyyalal, Shailendra, Leela Chitnis, Lalita Pawar, Dhoomal, Sunder, Mohan Choti, Coca Cola, Bhushan Tiwari, Shobhana, Narendra Nath, Shobha Khote, Mehmood and others.

Hema Malini had a ‘above all’ appearance in this movie.

Abrar Alvi was the writer of this movie. Editing of this movie was done by Vishwanath Narvekar. Story of this movie was written by Mehmood.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 10.01.1979.

Here is a brief about this movie as mentioned on ‘Wikipedia’.

Janta Havaldar (transl. The people’s Havildar) is a 1979 Indian Hindi-language film directed by Mehmood, with Rajesh Khanna playing the title role, paired opposite Yogita Bali. The film has Ashok Kumar and Hema Malini making extended guest appearances. This film was not commercially successful at the time of its release. However, over the years, the film has been appreciated by the audiences in its screening on television and has gained a cult following over the years. This movie has songs sung by a newcomer Anwar as Kishore Kumar refused to sing for the movie as it had his ex-wife Yogita Bali in the lead.

This movie has five songs (including one two-part song), all written by Majrooh Sultanpuri. Music for this movie was composed by Rajesh Roshan.

Here is the list of songs this movie has (along with their status on the blog).

01 Age Julekha kahaan hai ri tu Mehmood, Eunuchs Yet to be posted
02 Teri aankhon ki chaahat mein Anwar Being discussed today

05 b) Thokaren hamko qubool raah kisi ko mil jaaye (part 2) Anwar 29.12.2013

Today’s song is sung by Anwar. It is lip synced by Rajesh Khanna. Also seen in the picturization of this song is Yogita Bali. One stanza of this song is repeated as sad version (in background I presume) which is available in the audio link only.

Two well known songs from this movie have been discussed by Peevesie’s Mom ji on the blog and incidentally both were discussed on the birth anniversary of Rajesh Khanna.

Today’s song is also a well known and popular song from this movie. I think this song should be in top songs of Majrooh Sultanpuri (and for composer Rajesh Roshan too). Anwar is the singer of this soulful song. In fact, this should also be in ‘top songs’ list of songs sung by Singer Anwar.

Let us listen to the today’s song now…

Song-Teri aankhon ki chaahat mein (Janta Hawaldaar)(1979) Singer-Anwar, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Rajesh Roshan

Lyrics

Teri aankhon ki chaahat mein

Mohabbat kaise ki jaati

Teri duniyaa teri mehfil
Ujaalaa mil sake tujhko
Ujaalaa mil sake tujhko
To main ghar bhi jalaa doongaa
Teri aankhon ki chaahat mein

Bahaaraan cheez kyaa hai phool
Kaliyaan kisko kehte hain
Ke kaliyaan kisko kehte hain
Lahoo meraa salaamat main
Lahoo meraa salaamat main
Teraa jeevan sajaa doonga
Teri aankhon ki chaahat mein
To main sab kuchh luta doongaa
Mohabbat kaise ki jaati
Mohabbat kaise ki jaati

Teri aankhon ki chaahat mein

(In audio the following lines of the third stanza are repeated as sad version)

Bahaaraan cheez kyaa hain phool
Kaliyaan kisko kehte hain
Ke kaliyaan kisko kehte hain
Lahoo meraa salaamat main
Lahoo meraa salaamat main
Teraa jeevan sajaa doonga

तेरी आँखों की चाहत में
तो मैं सब कुछ लुटा दूंगा
तेरी आँखों की चाहत में
तो मैं सब कुछ लुटा दूंगा
मोहब्बत कैसे की जाती
मोहब्बत कैसे की जाती
है दुनिया को दिखा दूंगा
तेरी आँखों की चाहत में

तेरे नाज़ुक हसीं क़दमों के
नीचे हमसफ़र मेरे
अरे ओ हमसफ़र मेरे
जहां होगा कोई काँटा
जहां होगा कोई काँटा
वहाँ मैं दिल बिछा दूंगा
तेरी आँखों की चाहत में

तमन्ना है के रौशन हो
तेरी दुनिया तेरी महफ़िल
तमन्ना है के रौशन हो
तेरी दुनिया तेरी महफ़िल
उजाला मिल सके तुझको
उजाला मिल सके तुझको
तो मैं घर भी जला दूंगा
तेरी आँखों की चाहत में

बहारां चीज़ क्या है फूल
कलियाँ किसको कहते हैं

लहू मेरा सलामत मैं
लहू मेरा सलामत मैं
तेरा जीवन सजा दूंगा
तेरी आँखों की चाहत में
तो मैं सब कुछ लुटा दूंगा
मोहब्बत कैसे की जाती

है दुनिया को दिखा दूंगा
तेरी आँखों की चाहत में

(गीत कि निम्न पंक्तियाँ गीत के विषाद संस्करण में दोहराई गयीं है)

बहारां चीज़ क्या है फूल
कलियाँ किसको कहते हैं

लहू मेरा सलामत मैं

Blog Day :

5057 Post No. : 16971

I often wonder if is it possible to go through and listen to all the songs that have already been posted on the blog? And, can I recall each of them when somebody asks me or refer to a film’s name and pose a question about its music director, lyricists or other artists or the star-cast of the movie?

I don’t know about others but for me it seems to be an impossible task as of now. Even though I am browsing the blog every now and then each day, still there are many many movies and their songs I have to go through. And when we found a missing gem of song that has not been posted on the blog, we are surprised to note that.

Today’s song is such a song, which according to me should have been posted on the blog long back. (But then I would not have got this chance of putting my thoughts here 🙂 ).

All this would not have been possible without the ‘Geet Kosh’ and ‘links’ of these songs. For this we have to thank all who have created the ‘Geet Kosh’ and also those enthusiasts who have uploaded and made these songs available online.

Today’s song is from the ‘1950’ movie ‘Sartaaj’. This seems to be a lesser known movie of its time.

“Sartaaj-1950” was directed by S. Khalil for ‘Umar Khayyam Films, Bombay’. It had Munawwar Sultana, Motilal, Manorama, Ansari, Mirza Musharraf, Shyama, Kuckkoo, Ratanbai and others.

This movie has nine songs as mentioned in HFGK Vol-II (1941-1950).

Three lyricists were used for these nine songs, where Majrooh Sultanpuri wrote six songs, Shewan Rizvi wrote two songs and Partav Lakhanavi wrote one song in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Husnlal-Bhagtram.

Here is the list of songs in this movie and their status on the blog:-

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Saajan umariya baali ho Zohrabai , chorus 23.08.2014
02 Jab teri gali mein ham aaye Lata, Shamshad, chorus 08.02.2018

04 Koyi samjhega kya, sun to lena tha tumko Lata Mangeshkar

07 Mazaa mila hai jise dil mera dukhaan mein Lata, Shamshad, chorus
08 Jo dil hi todna tha, kyon diya phir aasraa tumne Lata, Mukesh 19.10.2011
09 Rahe khush teri duniya… jigar ke tukde kiye huye… Lata Mangeshkar Being presented today

We can see from the above table that four songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Lata Mangeshkar. Majrooh Sultanpuri is the lyricist..

Music is composed by Husnalal-Bhagatram. ( After listening to today’s song the tune sounds familiar, but I am not able to recall the song that this song reminds me of.).

Only the audio of this song is available. I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this song.

Last but not the least, a big thanks to our regular reader Mr Deepak Patwardhan who had send reminder of this beautiful song that was missing from the blog till now.

Let us listen to the song now …


Song-Jigar ke tukte kiye huye (Sartaaj)(1950) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Majrooh Sultanpuri, MD-Husnlal Bhagatram

Today’s song is a special song. It is special because it is sung by an almost unimaginable actor who was a famous villain and we could never imagine that he would have sung a solo song and a record was brought out for that song ! But then life is like that only. It has routinely presented surprises, shocks, puzzles and inconceivable situations. That’s why LIFE is interesting ! Speaking about show business, it is all the more pertinent. There are umpteen number of cases where men became actors when it was not planned and from actors they went into something totally different, unconnected activity. Let us see some examples.

Is it not a game of Fortune, when an ordinary Laboratory Technician becomes a famous and popular actor overnight and is known as Ashok Kumar ? How does one explain the conversion of a choreographer, trained by Uday Shankar, for the film Lakharani-1945 into famous director Guru Dutt ? Hari Shivdasani started as a film director with Yasmin-1935, but became an actor in 110 films. Motilal-a Navy aspirant and a casual onlooker of a shooting is invited to directly become a Hero and for next 31 years became a popular actor. Likewise Ramnarayan Venkatraman Sastry who was an M.Sc.,Ph.D. in Physics, knew 12 Indian and 4 Foreign languages, who edited a Dance and Drama Magazine, who earned a Fellowship of New York University, A grade Flier, Swimmer, Painter, a trained magician, Shooter, A.I.R. Singer and who was invited by European and American Universities for giving lectures, one fine morning was invited and became a Tamil Film Hero in 1941. He was named Ranjan and acted in 58 Hindi films, wrote film stories like Munimji-1955 and did Choreography.

The Film Industry is replete with other side examples too – like how successful actors left films and did something totally different… like Shashi Kapoor Sr. who left a blooming film career as a Child artiste of 21 films, did M.Sc.Ph.D and became a Mathematics professor in an American University. The case of Ashraf Khan is too weird to be believed. He was an actor-singer in 31 films and 59 songs, left films and became a Sufi Saint ! Mukund Rai Trivedi- one of the Frank- Rai pair of Music Directors left films, joined family beusiness of Mining, became a Billionaire and a Lok Sabha M.P. Madholal Master left films after 34 films as an MD and purued his hobby of making Puppets. He became internationally famous and was honoured by the international Puppetary Association. His ” JOKER ” puppet was used by Raj kapoor in film Mera Naam Joker. Saigal was a Typewriter salesman before becoming a singer-actor.

In these examples add one more name B. M. VYAS. The famous villain of 174 films was a stage drama actor, a singer and a Music Teacher to Mahendra Kapoor and his brother, to start with. He was a trained musician and singer. Today’s song is sung by him for the Drama ” Deewar”- staged by Prithvi Theatres in 1945. Let us take a look at his journey from a singer to a villain….

Actor Brij Mohan aka B.M.Vyas was one artiste who started as a singer, became a drama actor and then ended up as a villain, character actor. B.M.Vyas was born as Brijmohan Vyas on Vijayadashami (22 October) day of 1920 in Churu, Rajasthan. He is the younger brother of the well-known poet and lyricist, Bharat Vyas. He was married at the age of 17 when his wife, Jamna was just 11. They had 71 years of marital bliss before Jamna passed away in 2008. They had six daughters and a son. After acting in over 200 films in various languages, Vyas quit acting in the early 1990s. Then he moved to his residence in Kalyan. Having seen various shades of life, Vyas lived a contented life with his children and grandchildren.

On 15 January, 1944, actor Prithviraj Kapoor realised his dream when Prithvi Theatre, his own drama company came into being. Mahakavi Kalidas’ classic Shakuntala was chosen to be their first performance. The play’s cast included Uzra Mumtaz (younger sister of Zohra Segal) to play Shakuntala, Prithviraj Kapoor to play Dhushyant, K N Singh was cast as Rishi Kanva, Shakuntala’s foster father, Sati Devi (Bijoya Ray’s sister, Ruma Guha Thakurta’s mother) as Gautami, caretaker of Kanva Ashram who raises Shakuntala, and Hemavati (Daya Kishan Sapru’s wife) to play Shakuntala’s friend Priyamvada, among others. A young, 24 years old, B M Vyas was recruited as a singer by the drama company to sing songs in their play at a monthly salary of 75 Rupees.

Once when rehearsals for their maiden show were in progress and Vyas was done with his singing rehearsals, he was watching rehearsals of the cast. One of his songs for the play was “Bitiya Rani Kahan Kahan Tapasvi Log, Milna Julna Rehgaya Nadi Naav Sanjog”. The cast was rehearsing for a scene which needed Rishi Kanva to recite a mantra in Sanskrit, but actor K N Singh was having trouble reciting it. Prithviraj was trying to help him but was also faltering in saying it perfectly. Vyas , an expert in Hindi and Sanskrit, having immense knowledge of Ved Mantra was witnessing the proceedings for two days. It was possibly the blessing of Goddess Saraswati that inspired him to say the mantra aloud. On hearing him intone the mantra with such Brahminical precision, Prithviraj was very impressed and asked him to help K N Singh in saying the mantra correctly. But soon K N Singh informed Prithviraj ji that he will not be able to speak Devbhasha (Sanskrit) and that he should look for another artiste for the role. Prithviraj asked Prithvi Theatre’s manager Ramesh Saigal to approach Vyas for the role. Vyas , who had already acted in a Rajasthani play Ramu Chanana earlier, readily agreed and stepped into the role and thus started his journey as an actor.

While the rehearsals were still on, Vyas suffered a personal tragedy and had to go back home in Bikaner, Rajasthan. There he fell sick with typhoid. Here rehearsals were in full swing as the play was to premiere on 9 March, 1945 at the Royal Opera House. The final date was about a month away so Prithviraj asked him to come back as soon as possible. Vyas returned with his wife though he was still unwell. On the day he resumed his rehearsals he couldn’t do much due to frequent blackouts. The medication he was on did not seem to help him much. He remembers the doctor from Kalbadevi who treated him for free; with his medication, Vyas ji’s health improved considerably in just three days.

The final round of rehearsals was done and finally the day of Prithvi Theatre’s first play to be staged, arrived. For the first performance of Shakuntala, many known names of the film industry were present at Royal Opera House. In the scene where Rishi Kanva makes an entry on stage he was required to raise his hands for blessing but Vyas was still weak and his hands started shaking. He tried a lot to control them but to no avail. He then remembered that he had seen many old people whose hands and heads would involuntarily shake, so he started to shake his head too. The end result was so effective that during the play’s interval Prithviraj came and hugged him. He asked him how he developed that body language, Vyas told him about his genuine problem. Prithiviraj told him that he did a wonderful job and should continue with the same every time the play was staged.

Vyas had a long association with Prithvi Theatre, from 1944 to 1955. During this period he toured with the group to various cities and got an opportunity to showcase his singing and acting skills in various plays like – Deewar, Pathan, Aahuthi, Gaddar, Kalaakar, etc.

After Vyas joined Prithvi Theatre as a singer, he had to do regular riyaz at home. A music teacher who often heard him sing once asked if he would be willing to give music tuitions. Since his monthly salary was 75 Rupees then, Vyas agreed as this would give him additional income. The teacher took him to meet Jaichand Kapoor and soon Vyas started giving music tuitions to his elder son, Brijmohan. However his younger brother seemed more inclined and started learning music from Vyas . This youngster was none other than our legendary playback singer, Mahendra Kapoor who always acknowledged that B M Vyas was his first Guru.

Vyas had been interested in music since childhood. He is a self-taught singer. In the early 1940s Bharat Vyas called his younger brother to Mumbai. Soon Vyas ji got the opportunity to act and sing as many as twenty songs for the Rajasthani play Ramu Chanana written by Bharat . Music Director Naushad Sahab’s assistant Ghulam Muhammad who hailed from Rajasthan was very impressed when he heard Vyas’s voice in the play. He took him to meet Naushad Sahab who was working on the soundtrack of the film Pehle Aap (1944). Vyas got an opportunity to sing a group song “Hindustan Ke Hum Hain, Hindustan Hamara; Hindu Muslim Dono Ki Aakhon Ka Tara” with established singers G. M. Durrani and Shyam Kumar along with a new singer Mohammed Rafi. Since this song was supposed to be sung by soldiers on screen, Vyas and Rafi Sahab had to wear heavy boots and do a rhythmic march while singing to give an effect of an army troop. Such effects could not be added to a song with the technology available then; it all had to be done in real time. However the first ever song Vyas sang for a film was “Alakh Niranjan, Jai Jai Jai Manaranjan” from Bhartrihari (1944) which was picturized on Arun Ahuja (Govinda’s father).

Vyas gave playback in four films – Bhartrihari (1944, MD: Khemchand Prakash), Pehle Aap (1944, MD: Naushad), Maharana Pratap (1946, MD: Ram Ganguli) and Naulakha Haar (MD: R C Boral) before destiny took him on a different path. He remembers meeting Rafi Sahab years later who sweetly said “Pandit ji you changed our line (singing)” to which Vyas admitted that he did not see much of a future for himself in singing and hence switched to acting.

After Prithvi Theatre’s first play Shakuntala was staged, Devika Rani (owner of Bombay Talkies) was keen to know who played Rishi Kanva. When she saw the 24 yrs old Vyas she was surprised, she never expected to see such a young man. She offered him a role in a Bombay Talkies film to be directed by actor Jairaj but the film was never made.

When Ramesh Saigal moved away from Prithvi Theatre, he joined Chetan Anand’s company India Pictures as Production Manager. They were working on their next film Neecha Nagar (1946) when Ramesh Saigal offered Vyas a small role (protagonist’s elder brother) in the film. Prithvi Theatre never laid any restrictions on their actors; they could take outside work while working in their plays. Vyas was eager to face the camera and accepted the role with open arms. He is credited as ‘Vyas ji’s in this film. Soon he played a small role in Raj Kapoor‘s Aag (1948) where he is credited as ‘Brijmohan’. But the role that gave him recognition in the film industry was in Barsaat (1949) where he played actress Nargis’ father. For this film he is credited as ‘B. M. Vyas’. Thus Vyas ji’s film career took off and he never looked back.

He has had a long and very successful career of more than four decades and has been part of many memorable classics. He has always been a character artist who started his career with portraying old characters. His last film most probably was Maa (1991).Vyas was very keen to work with the great filmmaker V Shantaram and approached him for work. Shantaram was planning Do Aankhen Barah Haath (1957) and was busy casting actors to play six prisoners in the film. He did not tell him that he is Bharat’s younger brother who was the lyricist of the film. When Vyas approached him, Shantaram was initially a bit apprehensive due to his height but soon cast him as one of the prisoners, Jalia Nai. They had a month-long schedule in Kolhapur. When the reels were sent to Rajkamal Studios for processing, it was found that due to dirt particles on the lens there were lines all across the frame in all the reels and the whole month’s hard work had gone to waste. They had to reshoot the entire thing. Vyas had a tough time managing schedules due to this re-shoot as he had other films in hand too. My favourite scene of this film is where Jalia comes with an intention to kill the Jailor played by Shantaram himself. That scene showcases Vyas’ ability as a performer, his entire body language, facial expressions, use of eyes and voice in this scene is a class act, beyond words.

About the classic scene from Sampoorna Ramayan (1961) Vyas said when he was offered the role of Ravan he was thrilled, being Shastri in Sanskrit he had read so much about this mythological character. Hence he was really keen to play the part but Ravan is expected to have a powerful physique while Vyas ji had a lean frame. To overcome this hurdle he got cotton padded clothing made for the role to look fuller. The rising temperature due to lights in addition to studio heat, he would sweat profusely in those cotton padded clothes but he did not let it hinder his performance. That innovative scene where Ravan is interacting with his nine heads was a collective brainchild of Babubhai Mistry and Homi Wadia. Vyas had to enact from a fixed position in front of a stationary camera for fifteen days but the end result was very effective.

B M Vyas acted in 175 films. His first film was Neecha Nagar-46 and last film was Oh,Darling ! yeh hai India-95. Vyas ji left for a better world on 11 March, 2013. (Adapted from articles from Maitri Manthan and Blog beete hue din, with thanks.)

This is the second song from the drama Deewar-45. The first was sung by Raj kapoor, but since this was sung by an unexpected actor singer, I thought our Blog must have this song also.

My first introduction to the voice of Singer Subir Sen was the song ‘manzil wohi hai pyaar ki raahi badal gaye’ from ‘Kathputli-1957’, and ‘dil mera ek aas ka panchhi’ from the movie ‘Aas Ka Panchhi-1961’.

I consider them as popular songs or songs that I remember most. But then, the total number of songs he sang in Hindi movies is also less than three figures viz. only twenty-eight. And the songs other than the two mentioned above seems to be very less heard or less popular except ‘main rangeela pyaar ka raahi’ from ‘Chhoti Bahan-1959’.

I often used to get confused between ‘Maaya-1960’ song ‘ae dil kahaan teri manzil’ and ‘ae dil ab kahin le jaa’ from ‘Bluff Master-1963’ as sung by Subir Sen which is actually sung by Dwijen Mukherjee and Hemant Kumar respectively. But that is how his voice sounds.

Later on, when I got associated with this blog, I shared a song ‘chandaa salone itnaa bataa de’ from the movie ‘Sati Renuka-1961’ which is a very nice duet of Subir Sen and Suman Kalyanpur. I like it very much. However, this song was also shared by Khyatiben, and her contribution got posted on the blog 😊.

I also liked his ‘hamen un raahon par chalnaa hai’ from the ‘1960’ movie ‘Maasoom’, which I came across during sharing a Sahir Ludhianvi song from the same movie.

A detailed post on Subir Sen and his songs is already on the blog which is written by our Respected Sadanand ji and readers can read it with the song ‘chaand taley jhoom jhoom’ from the movie ‘Jab Se Tumhen Dekha Hai-1963’. The twenty-eight songs sung by Subir Sen in Hindi movies have also been listed therein in this article.

Today we add one more song sung by Subir Sen on the blog. In fact, this song is lying with us since 2015. It is from the movie ‘Jaadui Angoothhi-1964’.

This movie was new to me when I came across it in ‘2014-2015’, and I liked almost all its songs which I then promptly sent to Atul ji.

‘Jaadui Angoothhi-1964’ alias ‘Magic Ring’ was directed by A.M. Khan for ‘A.M. Khan Productions, Bombay’. It had Chitra, Manhar Desai, Sheri, Krishnakumari, S.K. Shyam, Anil Kashmiri, Jilani, Uma Khosla, Violet, Ameerbai Karnataki, Sujata, Saroj, Sabina, Balwant Sharma, Kallan, Bagla, Chaman, Deva Kumari, Kanta Kumari and Polsan and others.

This movie had five songs composed by Suresh Kumar. Lyrics were written by Anjaan and Zafar Rahi.

Here is the list of songs in this movie :-

SNo Song Title Lyricist Singer/s Posted On
01 O sanan nanana hawaa lehraaye Anjaan Asha Bhonsle 08.09.2020
02 Kahaan nazar takraayi Zafar Rahi Mahendra Kapoor 09.01.2014
03 Zamaane ke hazaaron gham…Bujh gaya dil ka diyaa Zafar Rahi Subir Sen Being discussed today
04 Ude nainon se gulaal Anjaan Kamal Barot, Mahendra Kapoor
05 Dam bhar hai judaa, to haal hai ye… dil toot gaya to … Anjaan Not mentioned

(HFGK mentions Anjaan and Zafar Rahi for one song each on the movie details’ page of this movie and adds in ‘addenda’ it further mentions Zafar Rahi as lyricist for song number three. I guess that all other songs are written by Anjaan, so it makes three songs by Anjaan and two by Zafar Rahi).

Story and screenplay of this movie was written by Munshi Nayaab, and dialogues were written by A.K. Khan.
Editing of this movie was done by G.G. Patil and he was assisted by Rohi Das.

Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Minoo Purshottam, Sulochana Chawhan, Subir Sen and Kamal Barot have given their voices to the songs in this movie.
As mentioned in the above table two songs from this movie have been posted on the blog.

Today’s song is sung by Subir Sen and on screen it is lip synced by Manhar Desai. Also seen in the picturization of this song, I guess, is Chitra the heroine of this movie and others.

Today’s song is a sad song. It is a nice song to listen to. Lyrics of the song can be considered as the star attraction in this song.

Let us enjoy today’s song …

Song-Bujh gaya dil ka diya (Jaadui Angoothhi)(1964) Singer-Subir Sen, Lyrics-Zafar Raahi, MD-Suresh Kumar

Lyrics(According to video link)

Aa aa aa aa
Zamaane kar hazaaron o gham
Simat ke dil mein aaye hain
Kisi se dil lagaa kar
Ham badi mushkil mein aaye hain

Bujh gaya dil ka diya
To chaandni ko kya karoon
Lut gaya saaraa chaman to
Ik kali ko kya karoon
Bujh gaya dil ka diya

Jismein ho aansoo hi aansoo
Dukh jahaan ho beshumaar
Jismein ho aansoo hi aansoo
Dukh jahaan ho beshumaar
Jismein phoolon ko jalaane
Aaya karti ho bahaar
Mere maalik
Leke aisi zindagi ko Kya karoon
Kya karoon
Bujh gaya dil ka diya
To chaandni ko kya karoon
Lut gaya saaraa chaman to
Ik kali ko kya karoon oon
Bujh gaya dil ka diya

Kya pataa thha
Chaandni raaten dhuaan ban jaayengi
Kya pataa thha
Chaandni raaten dhuaan ban jaayengi
Bhoolnewaale ki yaaden
Dil ko yoon tadpaayegi
Bewafaa duniya ki is jhoothhi khushi ko
Kya karoon oon
Kya karoon
Bujh gaya dil ka diya
To chaandni ko kya karoon
Lut gaya saaraa chaman to
Ik kali ko kya karoon oon
Bujh gaya dil ka diya

Laut jaao ae bahaaron
Kyun jalaane aayi ho
Laut jaao ae bahaaron
Kyun jalaane aayi ho
Dil ke toote saaz par
Kyun gungunaane aayi ho
Gham ki shehnaai se nikli
Raagini ko kya karoon
Kya karoon
Bujh gaya dil ka diya
To chaandni ko kya karoon
Lut gaya saaraa chaman to
Ik kali ko kya karoon oon
Bujh gaya dil ka diya aa

Today’s song is from a film called ” Azadi ke Baad “-1951.

HFGK shows 10 songs for this film. It does not give record numbers or singer’s names(except for 2) for the songs. Today’s song is not listed on this page, for whatever reasons. Nevertheless, it is confirmed that this song is from this film only, as the uploader has given the photo of this record on RMIM and also mentioned on YouTube that this song is not listed in HFGK. Possibly, at the time of compilation, the record details with singers’ names etc were not available to Hamraz ji. It happened in some other film cases too.

The film was made in Calcutta by The Great Oriental Pictures. It was directed by D.K.Chatterjee. I found only this one film for this director in HFGK. The music was by K.P. Sen. This name may not be known to most readers.

During the early phase of filmmaking, Bombay was the attraction for people connected with films. Actors, directors and composers used to rush to Bombay from all over India to try their Luck.

Bengal was also not an exception. Initially almost all regional film centres in India were on a smaller scale than Bombay. Therefore more opportunities were available here. Out of the hundreds of aspirants, those with great luck and readiness to do hard work with patience won the race and made their career in Bombay. On Hard work and Luck, I remember a comment by our Atul ji on one of my posts. He commented ” The harder one works, the Luckier one gets ” (31-1-2018). How true ! Cases like composer Naushad who slept on footpaths of Bombay or Sunil Dutt, who lived in Dharavi slum, during their struggle periods are examples of such successes.

During the 1930s and the 40’s decades many Bangla composers came to Bombay and gave music to Hindi films, ranging from 1 film to 5 films. Some of them were…Radhacharan Bhattacharya, N. R. Bhattacharya, Shoolpani Mukherjee, S.P.Mukherjee, V.V.Ganguli, Niren Lahiri, Shivrani Ghosh, Mihir Kiran Bhattachrya, A.C.Biswas, Hiren Bose, Bhishmadev Chatterjee, Ramani Mukherjee, Anath Bose, Kazi nasrul islam, Anil Bagchi, Dakhina Tagore, Dhiuren Mitter, Kartik Chatterjee, Himangshu Dutt Sursagar, Jagmohan Sursagar, Subal Dasgupta, Sailesh duttagupta, Gopen Mullick, Gyanprakash Ghosh, Naresh Bhattacharya, Pratap mukherjee, Khshirodchandra Bhattacharya, Ravi Roychaudhuri, prafull Chaudhuri, T.K.Das etc etc. Some composers who did not succeed here, were real big names in Bengal, like Kazi Nazrul Islam,Niren Lahiri, Hiren Bose, Bhishmadev Chatterjee, Himangshu Dutt Sursagar, Subal Dasgupta, Gopen Mullick, Gyanprakash Ghosh etc etc

K.P.Sen, Music Director of today’s film had given music to 3 more Hindi films- Baap-46, Do Baten-49 and Shadi ke Baad-49. Film Azadi ke baad-51 was his last Hindi film. No more information about him is available. I have always stated that it is extremely difficult to get information on most Bangla artistes in any other language than Bangla.

The cast of the film was Asit Baran, Mira Mishra, Pearl,Parvati, Kalpana, Pannalal Bose, Nripen, Rekha, Sujata etc. Pearl was the sister of Violet Cooper and Patience Cooper among the 7 sisters. Pearl acted in 6 Hindi films – Indra Sabha-32, Anokha prem-34, Khudadad-35, Jahanara-35, Burkhewali-36 and Abla ki Shakti-40. Her sister Violet acted in 5 Hindi films and Patience Cooper acted in 16 Silent and 34 Talkie Hindi films. The hero was Asit Baran.

Asit Baran was born on 19-11-1913 at Calcutta in a middle class family.His pet name was kalo. He was not much interested in schooling. He learnt music and Tabla from Gyanprakash Ghosh. He became an expert in Tabla playing and did few programmes on Calcutta A.I.R. also. In one of the All India Music Conferences,Pahadi Sanyal noticed him and invited him to New Theatres. Impressed with his good looks and singing capability, he got the role of Pahadi sanyal’s younger Brother in the film ” Protisruti ”-42. He acted in severai Hindi and Bangla films of New Theatres.

His first Hindi film- Saugandh-42, was a remake of ‘ Protisruti ‘. He did the same role in Hindi also. His songs became popular.In all,Asit Baran acted and sang in 43 films-Hindi and Bangla together. Some of his Hindi films were Saugandh,Jawab,Wapas,Arabian Nights,Parineeta,Suhag Sindoor,Kashinath,Wasiyatnama,Manzoor,Roop kahani,faraar,Azadi ke baad etc. He left New Theatres in 1952 and came to Bombay on the invitation by Sailesh Mukherjee,to act in Suhag Sindoor. By this time,his voice had deteriorated and he was given playback by Sailesh Mukherjee. Same thing happened to Parineeta also. He acted in 14 Hindi films and sang 24 songs in 10 films. His last film was Babla-53

Asit Baran returned to Calcutta and did some more Bangla films. He founded a Theatre group called “Rangorash” which spread the teachings of Shri Ramkrishna Paramhans ji.

He died on 27-12-1984 at Calcutta.

Today’s song is almost a qawwali – an unusual genre of songs in films coming from Calcutta. By the way, as per an internet site, the film Azadi ke baad-51 was a remake of Bengali film Sahajatri-51, directed by Agradoot (Bibhuti Laha). Today’s song is sung by Pannalal Bose and chorus. Pannalal Bose was a Bangla actor and singer, This is the only song he sang in Hindi and considering that, his pronunciation and diction of Hindi words is very good. Needless to say that no information is available about him anywhere.

In the beginning years of this millennium, we among the last dwellers of last millennium, were kept mesmerized with old Hindi film songs.  This was a willing intoxication, which made it possible to deal all difficulties, happiness, sadness, tragedies etc. that life chose to throw at us.   Often the songs that played randomly in a collection of songs playing on computer would become a subject of discussion.  Once, a close friend said she like this song by Mohammed Rafi Sb a lot:

baa-hosh-o-hawaas mein deewaanaa
ye aaj waseeyat kartaa hoon
ye dil ye jaan mile tumko
main tumse muhabbat kartaa hoon

This song from the film ‘Night In London’ (1967) is posted here.

Another colleague/friend once spoke of this song from ‘Aaye Din Bahaar Ke’ (1966) – “Mere Dushman Tu Meri Dosti Ko Tarse“. Now this song is very interesting in its lyrics/poetry which is actually cursing the beloved.  Total and full of ‘bad-duaa’ ie ill wishing – it is to be seen to be believed, what all the poet is wishing on his beloved friend.

mere dil se sitamgar toone achchi dillagi ki hai
ke banke dost apne doston se dushmani ki hai

mere dushman tu meri dosti ko tarse
mujhe gham dene waale tu khushi ko tarse

 tu phool bane patjhad kaa, tujh pe bahaar na aaye kabhi
meri hi tarah tu tadpe tujhko qaraar na aaye kabhi
jiye tu is tarah ke zindagi ko tarse

itnaa to asar kar jaayen meri wafaayen o bewafaa
ik roz tujhe yaad aayen apni jafaayen o bewafaa
pashemaan hoke roye, tu hansi ko tarse

tere gulshan se zyaadaa veeraan koyi veeraanaa na ho
is duniyaa mein koyi teraa apnaa to kyaa, begaanaa na ho
kisi kaa pyaar kyaa tu berukhi ko tarse

Just falling short of wishing death! ‘jiye tu iss tarah ke zindagi ko tarse’.  There are numerous songs of this situation in Hindi films, too many to count actually.  In the 60’s it can be said, that every other film had this situation song, where the hero or the heroine is wronged, and singing a song lamenting the bewafaai of the beloved.  But I have looked all over the blog and I could not find any other song so full of curses. And this is also the only song on the blog, which is tagged as ‘hate song’ category.  The song still sounds so believable and not odd at all.  All the credit to the team of composers, lyricist and the singer. For this would easily have gone wrong.

There are some more songs, which have somewhat similar emotions and ill-wishes expressed in different forms.  I made a list of songs with those varied expressions.

Sl. No.

Lyrics

1 Mere Mehboob Qayaamat Hogi meri tarah tu aahen bhare
tu bhi kisi se pyaar karey
aur rahe wo tujhse parey
toone O sanam dhaaye hain sitam
to ye tu bhool na jaana
ke na tujhpe bhi inaayat hogi
aaj rusva teri galiyon mein muhabbat hogi
mere mehboob qayaamat hogi
aaj rusva teri galiyon mein mohabbat hogi
2 Jo Unki Tamanna Hai Barbaad Ho Ja jo unki tamannaa hai, barbaad ho jaa
to ai dil muhabbat ki kismat banaa de
tadap aur tadap kar abhi jaan de de
yoon marte hain mar jaane waale, dikhaa de
3 Mohabbat Ab Tijaarat Ban Gayi Hai kabhi thha naam iska
bewafaai
magar ab aajkal ye behayaayee
shareefon ki sharaafat ban gayi hai
tijaarat ab mohabbat ban gayi hai
mohabbat ab tijaarat ban gayi hai
tijaarat ab mohabbat ban gayi hai
4 Gairon Pe Karam Apnon Pe Sitam ham bhi the tere manzoor-e-nazar, dil chaahe to ab iqraar na kar
sau teer chalaa seene pe magar, begaanon se milkar waar na kar
begaanon se milkar waar na kar
bemaut kahin mar jaayen na ham
ai jaan-e-wafaa ye zulm na kar,
Ghairon pe karam apnon pe sitam, ai jaan-e-wafaa ye zulm na kar
rahne de abhi thodaa saa bharam,
ai jaan-e-wafaa ye zulm na kar
5 Guzre Hain Aaj Ishq Mein Hum Us Maqaam Se humko na ye gumaan thha,
o sangdil sanam
raah-e-waffa se tere
behak jaayenge kadam
chhalkega zehar bhi teri
aankho ke jaam se
guzre hain aaj ishq mein
hum us maqaam se
guzre hain
o bewaffa,
tera bhi yoon hi toot jaaye dil
tu bhi tadap tadap ke
pukaare ke haaye dil
tera bhi saamnaa ho kabhi,
gham ki shaam se
guzre hain

dekhega tu na kal ka savera
main naagan tu sapera aa aa
7 Neend Ud Jaaye Teri Chain Se Sone Waale neend ud jaaye teri

9 Din Dhal Jaaye Haaye Raat Na Jaaye pyaar me jinke sab jag chhoda
aur huye badnaam
unke hi haathon haal hua ye
baithe hain dil ko thaam

Din dhal jaaye haay raat na jaaye
10 Mo Se Chhal Kiye Jaaye samajhaake main to haari
haan dhamkaaya dini gaari, aur karoon bhi kyaa
dekho moraa jiyraa
haan jiyraa tadpaaye, jiyraa tadpaaye
mohe haay haay dekho sainyaa beimaan
mose chal, mose chal, mose chal kiye jaaye,
11 Bahaaron Ne Mera Chaman Loot Kar mujhe kyaa pataa thaa kabhi ishq mein
raqeebon ko kaasid banaate nahin
raqeebon ko kaasid banaate nahin
khataa ho gayi mujhse kaasid mere
tere haath paighaam kyun de diyaa
bahaaron ne meraa chaman lootkar
12 Meri Zindagi Mein Tum Kyun Aaye haay buri dukhiyaa dil ki
meraa dard badhaao naa baalam
meraa sabr padaa tumse jo kahin
jal jaaoge tum mar jaayenge ham
jal jaaoge tum mar jaayenge ham
dukhiyaa-dil ki wo haay hai
dukhiyaa-dil ki wo haay hai
jo saare zamaane ko sulagaaye
meri zindagi mein tum kyun aaye
13 Thukra Ke Teri Duniya Ko baddua na dil de baithe
tujh ko na dosh doongi main
taqdeer ke bair kiya hai
taqdeer se lad loongi main
main tod chalun
main tod chalun ek pal mein
tod chalun ek pal mein
duniya ka har dastoor
magar tere pyar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoom majboor
thukra ke teri duniya ko
chaahun to kar doon choor
magar tere pyaar se hoon majboor
piya teri preet se hoon majboor

 

Here is a list of some of my all-time favourite songs by Rafi sahab in the similar situations:

Patthar Ke Sanam Tujhe Hum Ne Mohabbat Ka Khuda Jaana – ‘Patthar Ke Sanam’ (1967)
Dil Ke Jharokhe Mein Tujhko Bitha Kar – ‘Brahmchari’ (1968)
Aaj Ki Raat Mere Dil Ki Salaami Le Le – ‘Ram Aur Shyam’ (1967)
Dil Jo Na Keh Saka – ‘Bheegi Raat’ (1965)
Teri Zulfon Se Judaai To Nahin Maangi Thi – ‘Jab Pyaar Kisi Se Hota Hai’ (1961)
Rang Aur Noor Ki Baraat Kise Pesh Karun – ‘Ghazal’ (1964)

There are more similar/different songs created for Hindi films for such situations, where dejected lovers either drown in self-pity or end up giving ‘bad-dua’ in a smaller/kinder way, to the beloved.  But most songs of this genre are praying for the happiness of the beloved, who has deceived them, has indulged in ‘bewafaai’ for want of similar expressive word in the English language.  An excellent case in point is this pensive Lata song – “Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Ye“, filmed on Meena Kumari in ‘Dil Apna Aur Preet Paraai’ (1960). Shankar-Jaikishan and Shailendra created this classic song with just the right touch of melancholy and congratulatory mood. With a dose of resignation.

Most songs in this genre, also turn out to be popular, be it the pensive songs of Mukesh, Lata, Suraiyya, Talat Mehmood or Mohammed Rafi.  So the well known songs are all posted. Looking for the theme, I ended up with “Tu Pyaar Hai Kisi Aur Ka” song in ‘Dil Hai Ke Maanta Nahin’ (1991) by Kumar Sanu. Quite a decent composition with innovative lyrics, that one.

I was sure all well-known Rafi songs in this genre are posted. But as luck would have it, I found the link of this Rafi solo in one of my saved files, which I was just randomly checking. This is a well-known song from the film ‘Dhadkan’ (1972).  Composer is Ravi who also wrote this song with Ali Jalili.  Ali Jalili is an unknown poet for the blog, as this is the first song by him to be posted.   Avinash ji is doing a series of 70’s decade missing movies, so he may be able to find some other films where Ali Jalili has written lyrics. Ali Jalili has written one more song in the same film with Ravi, “Tumse Nazar Mili”, which was also used for advertisement of different products.  My guess is he must be someone connected with advertising jingles, more so as he has collaborated with Ravi, not a regular poet for writing the two songs in this film.

The song is filmed as a wedding reception song, where Sanjay Khan is singing this song for congratulating the bride Mumtaz and groom Roopesh Kumar.  The real feelings of Sanjay Khan are evident, but he is trying to disguise them and give blessings to the couple.

Two songs of the film are already posted in the blog, so this is the 3rd song.

Jab Toone Kuchh Na Kiya
Main To Chala Jidhar Chale Rasta

I have done posts of some songs of the late 70’s and early 80’s, but very few songs of early 70’s. This song has a very deeply meaningful and emotional core, as we expect from Ravi’s compositions usually.  There is the Punjabi dholak music in the background which carries the rhythm of the song.  And Rafi Sb’s singing is again out of this world.  For me this is a known song, as it used to be played regularly on radio.  Again, when one really listens to it with a critical ear, with the aim of judging its merit with other such type of songs, a few are listed above, it is revealed as a fabulous song on all counts.  More fabulous for being a 70’s song.  By now Ravi is a seasoned and senior composer, with huge successes behind him and much more experience of how to get the best out of Rafi.  And Rafi Sb has delivered spectacularly in this song, the only one in the film.  Subtle changes in the way some words are sung in every repeated line, and those are again different for every time he sings the mukhda.  I refuse to believe that anyone else could do so much variation in a single voice, same rhythm and level, two stanza song, in live recording.

The pauses in the lines and words of a line, and starting the next word at the same level as before the pause, what superb control in the vocals. I am not a technical person, in the matter of singing, but if anyone can explain this phenomenon to me, I will be thankful to them. It sounds as a modern-day recording done bit by bit, line by line, and mixed afterwards. Practice makes things perfect and well-rehearsed is the forte of Rafi Sb. But the question is how well rehearsed and how much perfect. I can just conclude that the farishta in the guise of a singer is giving the same dedicated 200 % to a song composed for a new actor of 70’s, as he gave to all his songs, repeated in live shows, which won him accolades and a place is history.

#The Decade of Seventies – 1971 – 1980 #
————————————————————
# Bhoole-Bisre Geet # Ek Naao Do Kinaare – 1973#
————————————————————–

This Friday when I was listening to the program ‘Shaam Sindoori’ on my return travel from office to home, I was awestruck when I listened to a song sung by Rafi Saab.

It was like I was listening to this song for the first time. I do not remember if I have listened to it earlier. This song was ‘ye shaam hai dhuaan dhuaan fizaa bahot udaas hai’. I immediately fell in love with this song. After all it had Rafi Saab’s voice and a very nice composition too.

I searched for the name of the movie and I came to know that it was from a 1973 movie ‘Ek Naao Do Kinaare’. This song is already posted on our blog long back on 24.12.2011.

This song has two versions – happy and sad. The happy version is the duet, which I listened to on the Radio. This duet is sung by Rafi Saab and Asha Bhosle. The sad version is a solo by Rafi Saab.

When I looked for other songs from this movie I came across today’s song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle.

The songs from this movie seem to be uploaded recently (i.e. one or two years ago) on ‘YouTube’. All the songs from this movie are nice compositions composed by music director Brij Bhushan.

‘Ek Naao Do Kinaare’ is directed by BR Ishara for Nitin Films, Bombay. It has Rakesh Pandey, Heena Kausar, Mrinal Mukherjee, Manhar Desai, Anand Narula, Manohar, Indra Medha, Sheelara, Karunesh Thakur, Neelam Garudiya, Narottam Shah, Meeta Tripathi, Ramesh Bhatt, Sharmaji, Yogesh Chhabda, Neelam Dave, Sarla Choksi, Miss Khan, Naseema, Master Farjan Engineer, Mansoori, Baby Yasmeen and others.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 18.10.1973 with a ‘A’ certificate (i.e. with restricted viewership).

This movie has four songs (including a two version song) written by Naqsh Lyallpuri.
Music for this movie was composed by Brij Bhushan (he was assisted in orchestration by Kersi Lord and Uttam Singh).

Here is the list of songs of this movie. After the song under discussion , the movie is just one song away from ‘Yippeeee’.

01 Main haari tose saajnaa milaa ke nainwaa Asha Bhonsle Being posted today
02 Tum hamsafar bano to jahaan chaley ham Mukesh
03 Ye shaam hain dhuaan dhuaan (happy version) Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle 24.12.2011
04 Ye shaam hain dhuaan dhuaan (sad version) Mohd Rafi 24.12.2011

As mentioned above only one song, which is a multiple version song, has been posted on the blog.

Other than today’s song there is one more song in this movie. It is sung by Mukesh. It is a very nice song. (I am leaving this song for the ‘Mukesh fans’ to discuss on the blog.)
.
Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. It is lip-synced by Heena Kausar. Mrinal Mukherjee is also seen in the picturisation.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on the songs and story etc of this movie. This seems to be an obscure movie of its time.

Let us now listen to and enjoy the song …

Song-Main haari tose saajna (Ek Naao Do Kinaare)(1973) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Naqsh Llayalpuri, MD-Brij Bhushan

Blog Day :

5052 Post No. : 16965

Today’s song is from the movie ‘Amar Kirtan-1954’.

The song is ‘Hari Om Tatsat’ sung by Geeta Dutt. I had come across this song in 2014 and had noted it then. However so far it remained to be posted on the blog.

When I had shared this song (lyrics only) earlier in ‘2014’ I was not equipped with HFGK Vol-III (1951-1960). Now, when I was preparing this write-up to present this song, I check the HFGK Vol-III for more information of this movie and the list of its other songs.

I find that there is a ‘part-2’ of this song sung by S.D. Batish and Asha Bhonsle as mentioned in HFGK. However, when I looked for the link of this song I do not find it except that I find a link where both the female & male versions are combined together.
When I listened to it I noted that the male version abruptly ends at one place though after two stanzas (the second one being incomplete). (So we don’t know if this song was in a male and female version or a female and a duet version).

On this combined link of this song we can read a comment from the ‘YouTube’ account ‘Ragmala’. ‘Ragmala’ is the official channel of Batish family.
The comment on this song link says that the tempo of recording in this song is faster and it should be on lower tempo. After reading this comment we can conclude (?), that this song should be a male-female version only. And there is no duet version of this song. The comment doesn’t mention anything about the complete song in it.

“Amar Kirtan-1954” was directed by K.C. Pandit for ‘Punjab Film Corporation, Bombay’.
It had Asha Mathur, Shahu Modak, Jayant, Naaz, Rajendra, Sita Bose, S. Prakash, Prem Kumar, Sitaram, Maya Das, Heera Sawant, Kumkum, Lalan, Bansari, Chand Burq, and others. Kumari Amita Devi, Kamal Mehra, and Madan Puri make a guest appearance in this movie.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 27.07.1954.

This movie had eleven songs (including two two-part songs) all written by Wali Sahab.

Music for this movie was composed by S.D. Batish.

Here is the list of songs of this movie:-

SNo Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01 Jai gurudeva, jai gurudeva, yug yug yug… S.D. Batish, Others
02 Hari om tatsat, hari om tatsat…(part-1) Geeta Dutt
03 Jaat paat aur oonch neech ko…(part-a) S.D. Batish, Asha Bhonsle
04 Thaare gail chaloon re saanwariya Asha Bhonsle 21.04.2017
05 Prabhu mori pariksha naahi karo S.D. Batish
06 Morey ghar shyam ghataa nahin barsi Geeta Dutt
07 Bhool gaya … panchhi bhool gaya path S.D. Batish 26.08.2017
08 Main to hoon bhagton ka das S.D. Batish
09 Hari om tatsat, hari om tatsat (part-2) S.D. Batish, Asha Bhonsle
10 Jin dhyayo shyam, tin paayo shyam (part-b) Asha Bhonsle
11 Nirdhan ki dasha S.D. Batish

From the above table we can see that, so far, only two songs from this movie ‘Amar Kirtan-1954’ have been posted earlier in ‘2017’ on the blog.

Today’s song is a ‘two-part’ song as mentioned above.

I would request knowledgeable readers to throw more light on this movie and its songs. I would also request readers to provide link of this song in the voice of S.D. Batish if they came across it or are already aware of it.

Let us listen to the today’s song now…
