Missing Films of 1960s – 47
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The debut film for today is the stunt film ‘Faulaadi Mukka’ from 1965. Interesting to note that the production company is Madras Films, Bombay. The film is directed by S Azeem. The lead actors are Azaad and Indira. The supporting cast is listed as Kammo, Sherry, Murad, Sadhana Khote, Babu Raje, Nazeer Kashmiri, Ram Raseela, Mubarak, Lala Bhaiya, Shakeela Bano Bhopali, Tuntun, Baburao Pehalwan, Pehalwan, and Julian etc.

This obscure film has recently become available online – the complete film and its songs are available as video clips online. The Geet Kosh lists 5 songs for this film. The songs are written by three lyricists – Akhtar Romani, Tabish Kanpuri and Saba Afghani. The song presented today is penned by Akhtar Romani. Music is by Iqbal. It is to be noted that this music director is not the same person as Iqbal Qureshi. The singing voice is of Suman Kalyanpur.

The song is performed on screen by Indira. In the video clip of the song, we also have a brief glimpse of Muraad, watching Indira singing. The song is a ‘missing the loved one’ genre song, as the young lady describes how much she is missing her beau.

Enjoy.

“Jhoothha Kahin Ka”(1979) was directed by Ravi Tandon for R M Films, Bombay. This “social” movie had Rishi Kapoor, Nitu Singh, Rakesh Roshan, Prem Chopra, Om Shivpuri, Satyen Kappoo, Indrani Mukherji, Helen, Preeti Ganguly, Keshto Mukherji, Ifthikhar, Hari Shivdasani, Yunus Parvez, Indira Bansal, Mushtaq Merchant, Hungama, Harish, Dharamveer, R P Sethi, Brahm Bhardwaj, Vandana Shashtri, Vikas Anand, O P Goyal, Gauri Verma etc in it.

This movie had five songs in it. Four of these songs have been covered in the blog.

Here is the fifth and final song from “Jhoothha Kahin Ka”(1979) to appear in the blog. The song is sung by Kishhore Kumar with his usual energy, accompanied by chorus. Gulshan Bawra is the lyricist. Music is composed by R D Burman.

I had planned to post this song long long ago (as post number 10970). I do not know how I missed posting it at that time. The video of the song was available then and now it had vanished. A video (with some East European voiceover) is still available, but the video link of that time that I had noted down with the lyrics has vanished by now. The song is picturised on Rishi Kapoor and many others as a club song.

During the late 1970s, I considered the songs on this movie as infra dig. But now the songs of this movie are regarded as truly classic songs. when one looks at the quality of songs that got created in the years that followed, I had to grudgingly agree that yes, the songs of this movie are indeed classics vis a vis the songs that followed.

Just look at the songs that have been covered earlier:

Missing Films of 1960s – 46
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today, we introduce the film ‘Chaar Chakram’ from 1965. Another film by the same name was also produced in 1932. The name ‘Chaar Chakram’ takes off on the more familiar Hindi phrases that tell of the friendship amongst four friends – ‘chaar yaar’ and ‘chandaal chaukdi’.

This film was produced under the banner of PM Pictures, Bombay and directed by Sultan. The star cast listed in the Geet Kosh is very detailed. The lead roles are by Shyam Kumar and Leela Kumari, and the supporting cast is Tuntun, SK Prem, Anjum, Fazal Khan, Haroon, Bhagwan, and another long list of names that are not too familiar – Kenny, Bob, Butter, Jilani, Maqbool, Ajeet, A Siddique, Hameeda, Sabeena, Lawrence, Chand, Doctor, Daud, Ameer, Muhammad Sandow, Ahmed, Zeenat, Purushottam, Bhai Das, and Iqbal.

Geet Kosh lists four songs for this film. All songs are written by Anjaan, and the music compositions are by the lesser know duo of Suresh-Talwar. The singing voice is of Minu Purushottam. So as you would have noticed, today’s song is quite a bit off the regular track, in terms of the artists involved.

The song tells of how the young lady’s heart has been stolen by her beau. His appearance is that of a simpleton. But his eyes cast a magic spell and the young lady is smitten with love.

With this song, the 1965 film ‘Chaar Chakram’ makes its debut on our blog.

Song – O Bhole Bhaale Jawaab Nahin Tera  (Chaar Chakram) (1965) Singer – Minoo Purushottam, Lyrics – Anjaan, MD – Suresh-Talwar

Lyrics

o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera
naina mila ke
yun muskuraa
chheen liya tu ne
dil mera
dil mera
dil me. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

surat se to hai bada bhola bhaala
par tera andaaz sabse niraala
surat se to hai bada bhola bhaala
par tera andaaz sabse niraala
jaana na maine
kab aa ke tu ne
kiya mere dil mein basera
basera
base. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

teri nigaahon mein hai aisa jaadu
aankhen milin to hua dil bekaabu
teri nigaahon mein hai aisa jaadu
aankhen milin to hua dil bekaabu
mere bhi dil par
zulmi nazar ka
jaadu wahi tu ne phera
re phera
re phe. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

jab se nazar meri tujh se ladi hai
haathon mein ye pyaar ki hathkadi hai
jab se nazar mei tujh se ladi hai
haathon mein ye pyaar ki hathkadi hai
ye hi hai bandhan
jisko ye duniya
kehti hai ulfat ka ghera
re ghera
re ghe. .era. . .
o bhole bhaale jawaab nahin tera
dil lene waale jawaab nahin tera

ये ही है बंधन

ओ भोले भाले जवाब नहीं तेरा

Series of Rafi songs-Rafi with music directors
—————————————————————-
(Pal do pal ka saath)-MD composing just one Rafi song
——————————————————————-
Part I-Arun Raghavan
—————————-
During his HFM career, Rafi worked with 14 music directors in more than 100 songs each. I describe them as Major music directors for Rafi or three figure music directors with Rafi. Then there were 45 music directors who composed between 11 to 99 songs with Rafi. We can call them semi major or two figure music directors with Rafi.

Major (viz three figure) music directors created 2743 song with Rafi, which is 53 % of all Rafi songs in HFM. The semi major (viz two figure) music directors created 1528 Rafi songs, viz 30 % of all Rafi songs in HFM. So we can say that the major and semi major music directors (59 in number) contributed a whopping 83% of all Rafi songs, which adds up to 4271 songs in all.

Then there were 170 music directors who worked with Rafi in less than 10 songs each. They were like the proverbial squirrels of Ramayan fame, who would carry a few grams of tiny pebbles each on their tiny paws while the giant vaanars would carry large boulders on their shoulders. The individual contributions of each of these music directors may be small in comparison to the major music directors, but the cumulative total of Rafi songs by these single figure music directors adds up to a figure of 503 ! This total is bigger than the career total of HFM songs sung by some well known playback singers, viz K L Saigal, Suraiyya, Talat Mehmood etc. And these songs contain quite a few wonderful songs as well.

I had discussed this fact while discussing a song on the occasion of Rafi’s birth anniversary. Raja, while commenting on that article had written –

“Just wondering if we have covered songs of all those 173 composers (1-9 songs category) here already? If not, that could be a project. Every composer who has used Rafisaab should be on the blog, even if the song being posted for that composer isn’t necessarily the Rafisaab one (if it is, of course better!).
That could be our way of showing our gratitude to that composer.”

I had taken note of Raja’s suggestion. And this writeup begins our series of articles about those music directors who were associated with Rafi in less than ten songs each. The name that I have chosen for this series is- pal do pal ka saath. This phrase is taken from that memorable qawwaali from “The Burning Train” (1981) containing this phrase.

In the beginning, I will discuss those music directors who have worked with Rafi in just one song each.

There are 48 such music directors. While most of them are small time less heard music directors, we have some rather well known names too in the list.

I decided to take up these names alphabetically. The first name that crop up in Alphabetical order is Aabid Hussain Khan who composed one Rafi-Zohrabai Ambalewaali duet in a 1949 movie called Last Message”(1949). While a few songs from this movie are available, the Rafi song , viz. “na thahar sake na tadap sake” does not seem to be available.

The next name that comes up alphabetically is Aparesh Lahiri (father of Bappi Lahiri). He has composed one Rafi song in a movie called “Subhash chandra” (1978). Since Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s birth anniversary is coming up next week, that would be the opportune time to cover this song.

The next name in the list of music directors is Arun Raghavan. He was a South Indian music director and he worked in just one Hindi movie. This movie, called “Mera Suhaag” (1961) was produced by Produced by N S R Mani and directed by H Krishnamoorthy for Secarts, Madras. The movie had Kanta Rao, Rajnala, Ramkrishna, K V S Sarma, A V subbarao, Balkrishna, Krisha Kumari, Girija, Rajshree, Hemlata etc. in it. In all likelihood, this movie was a remake of a south Indian movie where songs were re reccorded in Hindi. There were nine songs in the movie. Eight of these songs were sung by well known South Indian playback singers viz. P Susheela, S Janki and P B Srinivas.

But there was one song in the movie which was sung by Rafi. And that happens to be the one and only collaboration of Arun Raghavan as a music director with Rafi in a Hindi movie.

The song is penned by Vinod Sharma, who like the music director is an obscure name for this blog.

This song is a rare song. Only the audio of the song is available.

From the sounds of it, the song appears to be used as a background song in the movie.

I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the movie as well as on the picturisation of this song.

So much discussion on a song which is a rare and obscure song. Most sites dealing with HFM will struggle to find anything to write on this song. But trust us in this blog to treat most songs in general and songs like this in particular with so much care and respect, and we are able to come up with so many special things to say about songs like this.

This song is special for us for the following reasons:

1. This is the only occasion when Rafi has sung a song under the music direction of Arun Raghavan and under the penmanship of Vinod Sharma.

2. This is the 2800th Rafi song in the blog. It was a conscious decision on our part to use a Rafi song from a less known music directors to emphasize that they too have contributed their mite in enriching HFM.

3. With this song, “Mera Suhaag”(1961) becomes the 3800th movie to get represented in the blog. The same reason as given above applies here as well for considering this movie for this honour.


Song-Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath (Mera Suhaag)(1961) Singer-Rafi, Lyrics-Vinod Sharma, MD-Arun Raghvan

Lyrics

Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath
kaun samajh paaya uska dukh uske man ki baat
Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath

dharmraj ne drupad suta ko diya juye mein haar
harichandra ki raani taara bik gayi beech baazaar
bik gayi beech baazaaaar
Yug yug se anyaay ho raha hai naari ke saath
kaun samajh paaya uska dukh
uske man ki baat

Shakuntala ko raaja bhoola
jiska thha vishwaas kiya
chhoti si thhi baat
Raam ne
Seeta ko vanwaas diya
Seeta ko vanwaas diya
Seeta ko vanwaas diya

tujhko bhi vanwaas mila hai
teri karun kahaani
kul maryaada raah mein teri
?? deewaani
tera dharm piya ko paana
?? tujhko mil jaaye
haan
?? tujhko mil jaaye
dukh ki kaali si raat kate
sukh ka sooraj muskaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye
tere man ka kamal khilaaye

Blog Day : 3471 Post No. : 13935

Today is an important day, maybe one of the most important day in the annals of Hindi film music. Today, 18th January, is the day the legendary Saigal Sb completed his mortal journey and departed from this world. After so much that has been written about him, any more contributions would simply be repetitions. But then, no matter how much we may write about him and his singing, it will never ever be able to express the complete emotions about him, and his voice. For one cannot fathom in words and language, that which is a gift of divine.

Ah yes, we can add something to the celebrity eminence of this occasion and this celebration. Readers and regulars are aware that the erstwhile considered lost film ‘Kaarwaan e Hayaat’ of 1935 vintage, has been traced and is now available. Today, I bring one more gem of an unheard song, for the listening pleasure of the multitude fans and lovers of Saigal Sb’s voice.

This song is a duet that Saigal Sb sings in accompaniment with Rajkumari. It is important to highlight that this Rajkumari is not the singer Rajkumari that most music lovers are familiar with. This is the actress-singer Rajkumari, who is also known by the name Rajkumari Kalkatta. (राजकुमारी कलकत्ता). In this film, she plays the role of the Shahzaadi – the Princess of Vijaypore. And yes, she is singing for herself in this song. The playback singing had not yet been implemented, and all songs were recorded live in the voices of the actors themselves.

To set the context of this song, let me add a brief of the storyline of the film.

Parvez (role played by KL Saigal) is the prince and heir apparent to the throne in his kingdom. However, he is less interested in the throne and becoming a king. He fancies an independent life and is seeking love, which is not a feasible thing to accomplish within the constraints of the palace life. And then the Queen Mother (role played by Shyama Zutshi) announces his betrothal with the Princess of Vijaypore. Considering this to be a setback to his life and dreams, Parvez quietly leaves the palace and goes incognito. He dresses up as a ‘banjaara’, changes his name to Naaju, and joins a band of travelling gypsies, in an effort to escape a marriage and a king’s life that he is not interested in. This secret is known only to his closest friend and sidekick, Suhail (role played by Bikram Kapoor), who is the son of the state’s prime minister (role played by Hamid).

To project a picture of normalcy, the palace keeps this news under the folds, that the prince has disappeared. As part of the matchmaking process, the Princess is supposed to visit the palace. The Queen Mother is unable to postpone this occasion. Efforts are being made to trace the Prince, and the Princess is given a go ahead to visit the palace per the agreed upon schedule.

But there is mishap waiting to happen. The Emir of Tikkim, another neighboring state, also wants to marry the same Princess. He has the Princess kidnapped as she is traveling to the palace. However, the fate intervenes in an interesting manner. The Emir has planned to hide in a safe place, within a group of people where no one would suspect. As fate would have it, he brings the Princess to the same band of gypsies, where Parvez is also hiding, masquerading as Naaju.

This congruency of fate puts Naaju (alias Parvez) and the Princess in each other’s company, and they fall in love. However, the secret identity of Naaju is not revealed to the Princess (till the end of the film). She believes she is in love with a handsome gypsy who sings very well.

In this clip, the amorous overtures of this pair of love birds are continuing. They are at the gypsy camp. The Princess had heard the singing of Naaju. She falls in love with this voice, and calls for him to visit her. That is when this song happens.

This song is a set of four couplets of a ghazal. Both the Princess and Naaju, are expressing how the love for the other in their hearts is giving them sleepless nights and aches in the heart. The exchange progresses somewhat as follows,

ab kaise chhupaaun main dil ki baat
kaati tadap kar saari raat

Pray tell me how
I am not able to contain within
The matter of heart that so engage me
I am having sleepless nights
I spent time writhing with pain in my heart

ulfat mein teri kitna roya
bin saawan aayi barsaat

I am faring no better, o dear one
My eyes are weeping
Being separated from my love
It is as if the monsoon rains
Have descended into my eyes
When it is not even season for rain

kisi ke ek hi naghme ne ashqbaar kiya
sukoon e kalb liya gham se hum-kanaar kiya

It is just one song that I heard
That has made me shed tears (of longing)
My peace and tranquility has been removed
And am now connected with sorrows (of separation)

na taab e zabt rahi mujhko na taaqat e fariyaad
khizaan ne gulshan e hasti ko be-bahaar kiya

My sense of restraint and my composure is lost
I have lost my power to even make an entreaty
The autumn has descended
Upon the garden of my being
And has made it bereft of spring

Let us listen to this rare treat of Saigal Sb’s voice. A song that has so far been considered lost, is now being shared for the pleasure of all music lovers.

[Ed Note: At the end of the clip, it appears as if the song is abruptly cut off, and possibly it is not complete. However, I have checked with the copy of the film booklet, which has so graciously been shared with me by Harmandir Singh ji ‘Hamraaz’. On referring to this booklet for checking the completeness of the lyrics, it is determined that this song is complete, with just a tiny blip at the end.]

 

Song – Ab Kaise Chhupaaun Main Dil Ki Baat  (Kaarwaan e Hayaat) (1935) Singer – Rajkumari, KL Saigal, Lyrics – [Unattributed], MD – Mihir Kiran Bhattacharya

Lyrics

ab kaise chhupaaun main dil ki baat
ab kaise chhupaaun main dil ki baat
kaati tadap kar saari raat
kaati tadap kar saari raat
ab kaise chhupaaun main

ulfat mein teri kitna roya
ulfat mein teri kitna roya
bin saawan aayi barsaat
aaa aaa aaa
bin saawan aayi barsaat
ab kaise chhupaaun main dil ki baat

kisi ke ek hi naghme ne ashqbaar kiya
kisi ke ek hi naghme ne ashqbaar kiya
sukoon e kalb liya gham se hum-kanaar kiya
sukoon e kalb liya gham se hum-kanaar kiya

na taab e zabt rahi
mujhko na taaqat e fariyaad
na taab e zabt rahi
mujhko na taaqat e fariyaad
khizaan ne gulshan e hasti ko be-bahaar kiya
khizaan ne gulshan e hasti ko be-bahaar kiya

अब कैसे छुपाऊँ मैं दिल की बात
अब कैसे छुपाऊँ मैं दिल की बात
काटी तड़प कर सारी रात
काटी तड़प कर सारी रात
अब कैसे छुपाऊँ मैं

उल्फ़त में तेरी कितना रोया
उल्फ़त में तेरी कितना रोया
बिन सावन आई बरसात
आ आ आ
बिन सावन आई बरसात
अब कैसे छुपाऊँ मैं दिल की बात

किसी के एक ही नग़मे ने अश्कबार किया
किसी के एक ही नग़मे ने अश्कबार किया
सुकूने क़ल्ब लिया ग़म से हम-किनार किया
सुकूने क़ल्ब लिया ग़म से हम-किनार किया

ना ताब ए ज़ब्त रही मुझको
ना ताक़त ए फरियाद
ना ताब ए ज़ब्त रही मुझको

Aa ha, close to midnight, and we are at the Yippeee-ing hour once again. And the film that we are inviting into the yippeee-land tonight is ‘Hongkong’ from 1962.

There are many films that have taken us to foreign lands, and even around the world. But I am sure you will agree, that the film that has the most songs about foreign places, is this one. Let us just examine – first we have two important cities of south east Asia covered in the song – “Hongkong China Mina Singapore”. Then we have three nations from Africa, covered in the song “Kenya Uganda Tanganika”. An then, in yet one more sojourn abroad, we are taken to visit the Hawaii islands in the song in this post “Hono Lu Lu, Hono Lu Lu, Honolulu, Honolulu”. I am sure, outside of the film ‘Around The World’ (1967), in all probability, it is this film that covers the maximum number of foreign locations in its songs.

As per the Geet Kosh listings, this film is from the production banner of Pachhi Productions, and is directed by Pachhi himself. The star cast is led by Ashok Kumar and B Saroja Devi. Other members of the star cast include KN Singh, Helen, Bhalla, Babu Rao, Kitty, King, Doctor, Balram, Vishwamama, Kundan, Om Prakash, Lilly, and Leo amongst others. The nine songs of this film are written by four songwriters – Shewan Rizvi, Raja Mehdi Ali Khan, SH Bihari and Qamar Jalaalabaadi. However, the song writer for this particular song is not identified. Music is from the mind of OP Nayyar.

Although the film itself is available, I am not able to locate online, the video clip of this song. As an interesting aside, there is a minor discussion around the availability of this complete version of this film in the collector circles. It seems that the video version of this film that is the most easily available, is purported to be an edited and incomplete version, in which the ending of the film has been edited out. And then there are one or two collectors who claim that they have the complete version of this film. Honestly, I have seen both the versions – the one that is more easily available, and the more complete version with a collector friend of mine – with very clear difference in the footage.

Today’s song is sung by Asha Bhosle. This is yet another wonderful and soft creation from OP Nayyar, having a slow paced rhythm. The tune allows to break down the lines of the song into shorter phrases, emphasizing each of the phrase components, and making the song sound more endearing. An enchanting rendering by Asha Bhosle – readily one of her best songs.

The list of earlier songs posted is given below. The nine songs have taken as much as almost six years, to all come on board.

When I looked at the filmography of Madan Mohan, I found that “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) is one of the few movies that is not yet represented in the blog. The movie was directed by Jagdev Bhambhri for Hema Pictures, Bombay. This social movie had Hema Malini, Feroz Khan, Neetu Singh, Jagdeep, Abhi Bhattacharya, Afzal Khan, Baby Madhu Malini, Hakeem, Surendra Khosla, Hitler, Dev Sharma, Moolchand, and Helen, with special roles by Bindu, Padma Khanna, Aparna Chaudhary, Dev Kumar, Fariyal, Laxmi Chhaaya, Jayshree T, Dheeraj, Tabrez, Gopal Sahgal, Sudarshan Sharma, Nandu, Jagdev Bhambhri etc in it.

This “social” movie had five songs in it. It is a popular misconception for people, including me that the song sharaafat chhod di maine is from this movie. No, this song is from “Sharaafat”(1970).

“Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) had five songs in it. Four of the songs are Asha Bhonsle solos and one song is a Rafi-Asha Bhonsle duet.

Here is the first song from “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) to appear in the blog. This song is sung by Asha Bhonsle. Verma Malik is the lyricist. music is composed by Madan Mohan.

There are several observations one can make about this song. First is that Madan Mohan was clearly under instructions to create a tune that sounded like RD Burman. Second observation is that this song is a Helen song but with some difference. Helen does give a cabaret dance performance, but she is dressed not like a cabaret dancer but like how an apsara out on a mission to break the “tapasya” of a tapaswi muni would dress. Third observation is that the person incharge of getting this song picturised was quite a confused soul. He did not have much clue what to do and he succeeded in totally messing up the picturisation of this song. Most Helen songs are supposed to be watched, but here is a Helen song picturisation that tries to show almost every actor acting in the movie instead of concentrating on the main task at hand viz choreography of this song and thus wasting Helen in this song.

The movie, it goes without saying, deservedly failed at the box office. Nevertheless, the movie has music by Madan Mohan so this movie needs to find representation in the blog. Better late than never. so here is this Helen song from “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976). With this song, “Sharaafat Chhod Di Maine”(1976) makes its debut in the blog.


Song-Aaj ki mehfil aaj ki shaam (Sharafat Chhod Di Maine)(1976) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Madan Mohan

hullo Atuldom

The song with this post is a visual treat. It is a fun song. It is a song where-in the dancer/ artist is a choreographer’s delight. She follows all instructions and executes them fabulously. It is also a comic delight, the facial expression etc. It is from a 1987 movie which hitherto has only one song representing it on the blog. That song was posted on march 28th 2013 and was a contribution by Guruji alias encyclopaedia of the blog. .

Now today (17 january 2018) I am revisiting the movie because it happens to be the 73rd birthday of the script writer of this movie. This was the last movie for which he teamed up with his partner Salim Khan. He worked as a team with Salim Khan for a period of about twelve years and approx. 24 films. He is a Padmashri & Padma Bhushan, as well as a Sahitya Akademi and National Film award (5 times) winner. His father was an Urdu poet and lyricist in Bollywood. He was initially married to famous child star of the 60s- Honey Irani and later to another talented actress- Shabana Azmi. He is father to super talented children Farhan Akhtar and Zoya Akhtar. Today (17 january 2018) is the birthdate of Jaaved Akhtar – son of Jan Nisar Akhtar. In addition to being a script writer he also is a lyricist which first came into public knowledge when he wrote songs for Yash Chopra’s “Silsila”.

“Mr. India” was a fantasy film which is a favourite with children of all times. It was directed by Shekhar Kapoor and written by Salim- Jaaved. Sridevi showed she had comic talent specially in the scene where she parodies Charles Chaplin. The dozen odd children were a treat for sore eyes. Amrish Puri as Mogambo is considered to be one of the best villains of Bollywood history. And as for Anil Kapoor the movie showed he was more an actor -a lambi-race ka ghoda as the term goes in Hindustani. There are stories about how Salim-Javed read the story to the superstars Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan and how they turned it down as they couldn’t relate to the concept of aninvisible man; but we will not think of that here.

Let us just sit back and enjoyyyyyyy this wonderful – comical- delightful song. I have heard in an interview by either the singer or the writer about how they wrote the lyrics of the initial part of the song. It seems they were sitting in a brain storming session- the director, music directors (Laxmi- Pyare), Kavitha Krishnamurthy etc etc. And each one gave a word or two, some sensible and some non-sensible. How else does one explain the words – hingsiki and why should I c Lucy, hassi tussi & lassi pisi follow each other and where did Hong Kong, King Kong, Ping Pong and Mombasa come from. But all-in-all a laugh riot.

Thank you, Jaaved Akhtar, and may we have more such songs from your pen.

Today’s song is from film Jailor-1958. This film from Minerva Movietone was a remake of its own film of the same name, made in 1938. This is a psychological melodrama, describing how a perfectly normal person becomes a bad one and due to circumstances becomes good again. There are shadows of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in this film.

Robert Louise Stevenson’s novel of 1886, ” The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde ” was first made into a silent film in 1920, followed by a Talkie films in 1931, 1941, and as recent as 2006, in Hollywood. The 1931 film must have obviously inspired the writers of this film in 1938- Kamaal Amrohi and Ameer Haider. The screenplay was by J.K.Nanda and music was composed by Mir Saheb.

For the 1958 edition, the writers’ team continued, wih addition of O.P.Dutta for new dialogues. Madan Mohan composed its music. Sohrab Modi, of course, was the Director and the Hero in both editions of the film. Now he was joined by Kamini Kaushal, Geeta Bali, Abhi Bhattacharya, Nana Palshikar, Rajkumar khatri etc etc.

The film was not received with enthusisam. The role of Sohrab Modi, as the Jailor was not at all accepted by the audience. The role left many questions unanswered- like whether such changes can occur in a person at all or how can someone go to such extreme cruelty etc. Afterall it was a movie. Sohrab Modi excelled in Historical films. Social or family dramas were not a cup of his tea, was established by this film. It is still a wonder, why Modi chose this film for a remake over his many other successful films, for example Pukar-1939 ?

Madan Mohan’s sweet music was a redeeming factor and it did soothe the nerves of the audience after seeing Modi’s performance in this film. The story of the film was….

Dilip (Sohrab Modi) is a good natured kind hearted Jailor. He has a good looking wife Kanwal (Kamini Kaushal) and a doting girl child- Bali (Daisy Irani). Kanwal likes to enjoy modern life , like attending clubs etc, which Dilip does not like. Kanwal does not like her husband. She contacts her ex-lover Dr. Ramesh and both elope. She is not worried about her child also. This shock changes the life of Dilip and he becomes cruel, hot tempered and a nasty person, as if to avenge the world for what happened to him.

Kanwal and her lover meet with an accident. Ramesh loses his sight and Kanwal’s face is badly injured. When Dilip learns about her accident, he brings a repentant Kanwal back home. However he locks her in a room and tortures her, taunts her and tries to take revenge She is not allowed to meet her daughter, who is told that her mother has died. Once the daughter Bali falls sick, but Dilip does not allow Kanwal to tend her daughter also. frustrated and sad Kanwal commits suicide. Due to illness the daughter also dies.

This is another shock for Dilip, but it changes him to his old good nature. he becomes more kind, loving and helpful to others. one of his ex-convicts Prem (Rajkumar Khatri) kills the village rowdy when he tries to trouble his blind sister Chhaya(Geeta Bali) In the jail, Prem requests Dilip to look after his sister. Dilip meets and helps her. He starts loving Chhaaya. Unknown to him , Dr. Ramesh, now blind, comes to the same temple in which Chhaaya lives. they get to know each others and develop love.

When Dilip comes to know about their love, he spends his savings and helps both blind people to get operated upon. They regain sight. Dilip ensures that they are united.

Rajkumar Khatri who had been famous for his roles in Dharmik films so far did a role of a murderer, contrary to his background. This too did not go too well with the audience. Today’s song is actually a combination of contrasting songs. There is a dance by a dance troupe just outside the temple. While the dancer is dancing, singing and luring the public, Dr.Ramesh comes there, singing a Bhajan. Slowly people get attracted to him. After some time all the public, including the dance troupers join Ramesh in his Bhajan and all enter the temple. Now, enjoy this Two- in- one offering…….

Missing Films of 1960s – 45

As I scanned the filmography of Nayyar Sb, presented by Atul ji in his late evening post yesterday, my eyes stopped with a jerk on seeing a ‘0’ in the decade of 1960s. Quick shift to the left and I find that the film is ‘The Killers’ from 1969. And the mind said ‘wow’ again – this film, and that too with Nayyar Sb’s music – how can that be an outsider still. Time to set the record right. So the immediate decision was to debut this film – immediately. 🙂

‘The Killers’ – is a kind of a multi starrer before its time. It brought together Sheikh Mukhtar, Dara Singh and Ajit – all stars in their own right of the genre of stunt / suspense / thriller films. Other players in the star cast are Helen (of course), Bela Bose, Leela Chitnis, Bhagwan, Jagdish Raj, Anwar Husain, Amar, Maruti, Savita, Sushma, Ram Lal, and Kundan etc. And yes, the alternate title of this film, now do not be surprised – ‘Hum Sab Qaatil Hain’, a la ‘Hum Sab Ustad Hain’ and ‘Hum Sab Chor Hain’.  😀 😀

The film is produced under the banner of Sangam Films, Bombay, and is directed by Maruti. The six songs in this film are shared between Aziz Kashmiri (2) and SH Bihari(4). This song is written by SH Bihari. Music – yes OP Nayyar Sb.

A wonderfully composed song, that immediately brings to memory, the similarly paced song – “Hum Ne To Dil Ko Aap Ke Kadmon Mein Rakh Diya”, sung by Rafi Sb and Asha Bhosle for Nayyar Sb in the film ‘Mere Sanam’ (1965). The use of sitar is simply so exquisite.

On screen, the song has been performed so sensuously by Helen, as she showers her graces on to her beau, role played by Dara Singh. In the initial moments of the song, the gentleman seems spooked, watching the lady wearing a towel, and then getting ready. He has this bowled over astounded expression on his face – almost as if, if he was required to say something, then God help the director.

But all in all, a wonderful composition, and performed equally wonderfully on screen by Helen. This is not a dance song, but she has conducted herself extremely tastefully.

With this, the film ‘The Killers’ makes its debut on our blog. And enjoy this lovely song. And the Helen performance.  🙂

 

Song – Nazren Mila Ke Aap Ne Ehsaan Kar Diya  (The Killers) (1969) Singer – Asha Bhosle, Lyrics – SH Bihari, MD – OP Nayyar

Lyrics

hmmm hmmm hmmm
la la la la laaa lalla
hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm hmmm

nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
phir se hamaare jeene ka samaan kar diya

mil ke hamen huzoor se
mehsoos ye hua
mil ke hamen huzoor se
mehsoos ye hua
duniya mein aur kuchh bhi nahin
pyaar ke siwa
sab kuchh wafaa ke naam pe
qurbaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya

bechain thi hamaari nazar
aap ke bagair
bechain thi hamaari nazar
aap ke bagair
mushqil tha zindagi ka safar
aap ke bagair
baahon mein le ke aap ne
aasaan kar diya
nazren mila ke aapne ehsaan kar diya
phir se hamaare jeene ka samaan kar diya

हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम
ला ला ला ला लाss लल्ला
हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम हम्ममम

नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
फिर से हमारे जीने का समान कर दिया

मिल के हमें हुज़ूर से
महसूस ये हुआ
मिल के हमें हुज़ूर से
महसूस ये हुआ
दुनिया में और कुछ भी नहीं
प्यार के सिवा
सब कुछ वफा के नाम पे
कुर्बान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया

बेचैन थी हमारी नज़र
आप के बगैर
बेचैन थी हमारी नज़र
आप के बगैर
मुश्किल था ज़िंदगी का सफर
आप के बगैर
बाहों में ले के आप ने
आसान कर दिया
नज़रें मिला के आपने एहसान कर दिया
फिर से हमारे जीने का समान कर दिया
