Missing Films of 1960s – 108
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Today’s film is ‘Night In Calcutta’ from 1970, produced under the banner of Mahendra Productions, Bombay. Given that it is a 1970 film, and looking at the list of songs, I am surprised this film did not make it here earlier. The lead pair in this film is Sanjeev Kumar and Simmi. By the time this film was released in 1970, both actors had comfortably settled into their careers. Sanjeev, having made his debut in 1960, had 10 years behind him, mostly in B/C grade cinema. 1971 was a year ahead when he would get recognition and national award with his portrayal in the film ‘Dastak’. Simi Garewal, had made her debut in 1962, with the English film ‘Tarzan Goes To India’ opposite to Feroze Khan, also had a good eight years behind her, with a mix of films, but mostly second female lead or a character role, but surely having worked with luminary directors of Indian cinema – Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen, Mehboob Khan, Raj Kapoor and Raj Khosla. ‘Siddhartha’, directed by Conrad Rooks – a definitive role as a courtesan, was still two years hence, in 1972.

Besides the lead pair, the rest of the cast is listed as Jaishri Talpade, Jagdev, Bhagwan, Master Sachin, Baby Neeta, Amrit Mahendra, Satyendra Kumar, Neelam, Vimal Joshi, Peter, Jai Singh, Samson, R Gaurang, Aasi, Ravi Khanna, Dev Kumar, Dhanraj, Jyoti Kiran, and Poonam More. Amrit Mahendra is also the producer and director of this film.

Four songs are listed for this film, all from the pen of Asad Bhopali. The music direction is by Usha Khanna. This song is sung by Suman Kalyanpur. The song is in memory from the radio listening days. I was searching for the video of this film and the song, but seems it is not available currently. I have some memory that probably I have seen this film on TV long back. However, I am not able to recall anything about the plot and the storyline. I request other knowledgeable readers who may have seen this film (and have better recall than me 🙂 ), to please add more info about this film and the song.

Maybe three more to go. 🙂

Today’s song is from the film Jadu Nagari-1940.

In last 2-3 years, I find that a lot many collectors are uploading songs from films of the 30s and also rare songs. The HFM History students- like me- are highly indebted to them for their generosity.

Like in any other fields, here too some disturbing events take place. Some collectors upload incomplete songs, thinking that this will protect their monopoly. I feel this is very unfair. No one forces them to upload songs. If they do so on their own, why not complete songs ? Anyway, it is their thinking and choice. Fortunately, true connoisseurs, like Shalin Bhatt ji are highly dependable and his songs are not only complete and rare but he also adds some information to it. Many times the viewers’ comments on the song also gives important information pieces. May God increase his tribe !

Film Jadu nagari-40 was based on an imaginary story, like many such films. These films had writers, who flew the kites of their imagination, sometimes in a very comic way. For example, turning Humans into Animals or showing talking animals, birds and even Snakes. Of course since the film had Jadu in its title iteslf, all these things were within expectations only. Actually these things made the films very interesting and watchable. ALAS ! The era of such C grade films is gone for ever !

I selected a song from this film, because I found some unusual and rare points here, worth talking about.

Firstly, the film is directed by Baburao Apte ( variously spelt as Baburao, Bapurao or S R Apte), who was the elder brother of actress Shanta Apte. He had started his acting career from the silent era. He acted in 8 silent films. Starting with film Shyamsunder-32, he acted in his first Talkie film, as Radha’s husband- where Radha was his own younger sister, Shanta Apte. In all, he acted in 16 Talkie films, his last film being “Main abla nahin hoon”-49 directed by Shanta Apte herself. He had a very minor role in it-courtesy his sister. He also directed 8 Talkie films from Kala Pahad-33 to Jadu Nagari-40. yes, today’s film was his last film as a director.

And yes, he was the same person, who brought his own younger sister of 9 years to act in films. He would put a condition in the contract that no other actor will touch her while shooting. If she had a wife’s role, he would do the husband’s role. Fortunately for cine goers, as Shanta Apte grew up as a rebel, she defied this rule and Baburao started his acting and direction separately. He got married and lived separately.

Shanta Apte- though unmarried till end- had a daughter-Nayana Apte. However this news of her daughter was kept a secret. When Shanta Apte died on 28-2-1964, ten years later Nayana declared that she was Shanta Apte’s daughter. Film Historian Isak Mujawar, in one of his books, has said that Nayana was Shanta’s daughter from brother Baburao Apte only. Such matters have no credible proofs anytime. By the way, Nayana Apte became a popular actress on Marathi Stage and in Marathi Cinema. Obviously Baburao Apte was very creative indeed !

Secondly, in this film Rajkumari Calcuttewali (real name Pullo Bai) had acted and also sang 5 songs. Though HFGK is silent about which Rajkumari it was in this film, the noted Music Historian and collector Girdharilal Vishwakarma ji has confirmed this. Also the song’s uploader Shalin Bhatt ji also mentions Rajkumari Calcuttewali. Though she acted and sang only in films made at Calcutta, two films ‘Gorakh aaya’-38 and ‘Jadu Nagari’-40 indicate her participation.Later she married one Seth Motilal from Calcutta and left films.

Thirdly, Music Director in later times-Jimmy aka James Singh- sang a duet in this film with Rajkumari Calcuttewali. Composer Jimmy aka James Singh- is one of those little known composers who never got fame or name in spite of their Talents. His real name was JAMES SINGH. He was a Christian Punjabi from Ludhiana. He was educated in Delhi.He started his career in Hindi films as a singer in Chorus. He sang 7 songs in 6 films (Imandar-39, Baghi-39, Pyar-40, Anjaam-40, Jadoo Nagri-40, and Maaya Nagri-44).

He could play many western instruments, especially all types of Guitars.When he failed as a singer, he became assistant to many composers. Finally.he got his chance to compose few songs for film ‘Muqaddar-50’, though with Khemchand Prakash and Bhola Shreshtha. He composed 2 duets of Asha and Kishore. The credit of composing the First ” Yodelling ” song of Kishore kumar goes to Jimmy. Kishore ‘yodelled ‘ first time in this film.

Jimmy then gave music to 14 more films like, Shrimatiji-52, Smuggler-59, Awara Shehzadi-56, Sher e Baghdad-57, Nek khatoon-59, Pathan-62, Miss chaalbaz-61, Tarzan and Gorilla-63, Duniya hai dilwalon ki-66, Pyar ki Baazi-67, Tarzan in fairy land-68, Aakhir-84, Khoon aur sazaa-86 and his last film, Sachhi Ibadat-1987. Inspite of giving sweet and melodious songs of a variety,Jimmy never came up to A class. He always remained a composer for C grade films. Anyway, as long as Kishore’s yodelling is heard,Jimmy’s name will be remembered.

However, in this film Jimmy was not the MD. It was yet another little known MD- Shanti kumar Desai, a very talented but unlucky composer who rarely got support from any famous banner. His music was enchanting and tunes were superb, but Lady Luck did not favour him.

He was born in Amreli,Saurashtra, Gujarat state on 3-3-1908. His family was in service as Royal Musicians, so he was exposed to music from childhood.He was an expert Harmonium player. To start his career, he came to Bombay and worked in H.M.V. as a Broadcaster. Here he came into contact with many composers and learnt how they operated and made tunes etc. He was already giving music to Dramas, but wanted to join Film line as M.D. He got his first film Navbharat ( Jawanmard)-1934. In those days Gujarati producers and directors used to prefer Gujarati MDs. Thus out of his 36 films, 18 were done with Gujarati Directors like Sohrab modi, Nanubhai Vakil, V.M.Vyas(4 films), Kanjibhai Rathod, Dhirubhai Desai etc. He also gave music to Gujarati films.

He gave music along with Madholal Master,Rafiq Ghaznavi, Pannalal Ghosh, Shyambabu Pthak etc. Famous singers like Rafi, Manna Dey, Zohrabai, Amirbai etc sang in his films during their early careers. Even kishore kumar’s early film Sati Vijay-48 had music by Shanti kumar Desai. He gave music to films of early era actors like Prem Adib, Mehtab, Sitara Devi, Leela Chitnis, Jal Merchant, Ashraf Khan, Rajkumari, Mazhar khan, Shanta Hublikar, Jairaj, E Billimoria, Kumar, Sardar Akhtar, Chandramohan, Shobhana Samarth, Durga Khote, Shahu Modak and Sulochana.

From 1934 to 1948, he gave music to 35 films and in 1964 his one film was released. He composed about 300 songs. He never got films from top banners like Bombay Talkies,Prabhat, Sagar or Minerva, otherwise his career would have been different.

He died on 6-1-1986. Some of his better known films were Bholi bhikaran-36, Punarjanma-38, Anjaam-40, Suhaagan-42, Naukar-43, Ek din ka sultan-45 and Lav Kush-51.

The Hero of this stunt film was the Stunt King Yeshwant Dave…..ever heard his name ? Not a great chance, I know.

It was not uncommon during the days of early cinema for people to hang around studios and filming locations in the hopes of being discovered. One such intrepid soul was Yeshwant Dave (or Yashwant Dave), who was at Kohinoor Studios observing a picture being made by producer J.B.H. Wadia. The handsome and athletic Yeshwant cornered Wadia, insisting that he would make a fine hero for an action film.

Wadia agreed to test Yeshwant by having him jump from the roof of one set piece to another. He did so successfully, and J.B.H. decided to cast him in a film that he was to direct for Young United Players, the 1931 silent Thunderbolt (aka Diler Daaku) featuring Mumtaz as the heroine.

Yashwant was again directed by Wadia in Toofaan Mail (1932) and thereafter became a sought after action star appearing in the stunt films of other directors like Aspi, Dhirubhai Desai, Nari Ghadiali, Chunilal Parekh, and Harshadrai Mehta. Some of his films include Bharat Veer (1932), Jaadui Jung (1934), Bombshell (1935), Vasant Bengali (1937), Flying Ranee (1939), Magic City (Jaadoo Nagri) (1940), Torpedo (1941), Royal Mail (1946), and Kaun Pardesi (1947).

Growing out of the stunt hero persona, he turned to character parts and made infrequent onscreen appearances throughout the 1950s, including in Seikh Chilli and Makkhee Choos both released in 1956 and starring comedian Bhagwan. What became of Yeshwant Dave afterwards is anybody’s guess, as the once popular action star faded into obscurity and, sadly, is barely remembered today.

Today’s song is a duet sung by Rajkumari Calcuttewali and James Singh. There were 9 songs in the film. With this song, film Jadu Nagari-40 makes its Debut on this Blog.

“Balidaan”(1971) was produced by Arun Verma and directed by Ravi Tandon. This movie had Manoj Kumar, Saira Banu, Dev Kumar, Anwar Hussan, Bindu, Manmohan etc in it.

This obscure movie had six songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the blog. That one song was discussed nine years ago, viz on 22 august 2010 by Raja.

I was not aware of the movie, but it turned out that Ava, our knowldegeable regular was not only aware of the movie, she also pointed out that Ravi Tandon (father of Raveena Tandon) made his debut as a director with this movie.

Now, nine years later, here is the second song from “Balidaan”(1971) to appear in the blog. This song is a dance song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle, with a few lines by Mahendra Kapoor. I am unable to tell who is the female dancer lip syncing in Asha Bhonsle’s voice. She vaguely resembles Bindu, but I cannot be sure. I request our knowledgeable readers to help identify her. Manoj Kumar lip syncs in Mahendra Kapoor’s voice in the picturisation of this dance song. There are many others in the picturisation. I can identify Manmohan among them.

Verma Malik is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shankar Jaikishan.

I am unable to get a couple of worrds right in the lyrics. I request our readers with keener ears to help fill in the blanks/ suggest corrections as applicable.


Song-Haay haay re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui(Balidaan)(1971) Singers-Asha Bhonsle, Mahendra Kapoor, Lyrics-Verma Malik, MD-Shankar Jaikishan

haaye haaye
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui
haaye re daiyya muyi main to kyun jawaan hui

pukaarte hain mujhko ab jawaan chhokre
kahte hain aao paas mere jaan chhokre
arre har shareef nazar beimaan ho gayi
jawaan hoke main to pareshaan ho gayi
ho deewane chanda haaye deewaane chanda
arre thhaam meri bainya mera aur nahin koi
haaye re daiyya moyi main to kyun jawaan hui

ungli mein pyar se koi chhalla chadha gaya
koi to meri baahon se aake lipat gaya
zulfon ko chhed chhed ke jhumka palat gaya
oye ?? dena haay

“Dil Aur Deewaar” (1978) was directed by K Bapaiyya for Vijaya and Suresh Combines, Madras. The movie had Jeetendra, Mausami Chatterji, Rakesh Roshan, Sarika, Ashok Kumar, Prem Chopra, Vijay Arora, Jagdeep, Roopesh Kumar, Madhu Malini, Nirupa Roy, Kamini Kaushal, Rajan Haksar, Pichoo Kapoor, Jagdish Raj etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. One song from the movie has been covered in the past.

I remember having watched the trailer of this movie while watching another movie in a movie hall. The trailer played the theme song of the movie. That theme song has been covered in the past one year ago.

Here is the second song from “Dil Aur Deewaar” (1978) to appear in the song. The song is sung by Kishore Kumar. Anand Bakshi is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

Only the audio of the song seems to be available. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song. It seems certain that the song was lip synced by Jeetendra.


Song-Mujhse poochhen mere meet (Dil Aur Deewaar)(1978) Singer-Kishore Kumar, Lyrics-Anand Bakshi, MD-Laxmikant Pyarelal

Lyrics

mujhse poochhen mere meet
geet kaise bante hain
kya hai bhed
kya hai reet
geet kaise bante hain
mujhse poochhen mere meet

paagal hote hain kuchh log
jinko lagta hai ye rog
paagal hote hain kuchh log
baithhe aahe bharte hain
kaaghaz kaale karte hain
dil mein aati hai jo baat
likhte jaate hain din raat
uspe un deewaanon ko
kisi se ho jaati hai preet
geet aise bante hain
mujhse poochhen mere meet
mujhse poochhen mere meet

geeton ke hain roop anek
unmein se ye roop hai ek
geeton ke hain roop anek
unmein se ye roop hai ek
gori ke matvaare nain
le jaate hain man ka chain
gauri ki matvaari chaal
ban jaati hai sur aur taal
gori ke do meethhe bol
ban jaate hain man sangeet
geet aise bante hain
mujhse poochhen mere meet
geet kaise bante hain
kya hai bhed
kya hai reet
geet kaise bante hain
mujhse poochhen mere meet

Missing Films of 1960s – 108
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

At 108, generally a maala is considered to be complete. So we are at the 108th episode of this series, searching for and bringing on missing films of 1960s on to our blog. Ah but, the homework is not still fully done. So there still are some films pending, to be taken care.

The story of the descent of the holy river Ganga, from the Baikunth Lok down to the earth, is very detailed and interesting. It spans four generations of kings belonging to the Suryavansh, the Sun Dynasty, in which later Lord Ram also appeared.

In the lineage of Suryavansh – Vivaswaan (also known as Vaivaswat Manu) is the son of Sun God. He had 10 sons. His second eldest son is Ikshvaku, from whom starts the primary lineage of the Sun Dynasty as we know it. His next in line is a son named Nimi. The lineage progresses and through more generations reaches Raja Harishchandra. The descendants of Raja Harishchandra in sequence, are Rohit, Vrishabh, Baahuk and then Sagar (‘सगर’).

Raja Sagar has two wives – Sumati and Keshini, but no children. Once Rishi Aurv (‘और्व’), passing through the kingdom, stayed at the palace and accepted the hospitality of Raja Sagar. When he was leaving, pleased by the selfless service done by the king, he asked the king to express his wish. The king of course expressed his desire to have sons so that his dynasty may continue. The Rishi blessed him, and said that one of his queens will give birth to one son. The second queen will be blessed with 60,000 sons. All of them will be brave and exceptional, but that they will be playful and short in temper.

With the passage of time, the blessing of the Rishi bore fruits, and the sons were born. Sumati gave birth to one sone Asmanja, and Keshini gave birth to 60,000 sons. Asmanja turns out to be a person with negative qualities.

Then after another passage of time, the King decided to conduct the Ashvamedha Yajna, to proclaim his sovereignty over all the land. The sixty thousand sons were given charge of protecting the horse of the Yajna. Now, Lord Indra, the king of the demigods, was envious of Raja Sagar. He decided to play a mischief. One night, as all the sons and soldiers were asleep, Indra stole the horse, took it, and tied it in the ashram of Kapil Muni, who was meditating at that time.

The army of 60,000 sons of Sagar reached Kapil Muni’s ashram in search of the horse. Finding the horse there, they jumped to the conclusion that Kapil Muni had stolen it. Muni was deep in meditation. Sagar’s sons started to rebuke him and call him names. They prodded him with their bows and disturbed him no end. Kapil Muni’s mediation was broken. He opened his eyes and looked at the army of 60,000 sons of Sagar. Such was the power in him, that by his mere glance, the 60,000 boys were burnt to death and turned into ashes.

When Sagar heard of this news, he was grief stricken. All his sons, save one, had perished without any proper samskaar etc. He consulted his Raj Purohit, Vashishth Muni. Vashishth said that the only way the perished sons could attain salvation was if the waters of the holy river Ganga was sprinkled on the ashes of the army of sons. For Raja Sagar, it was an unthinkable task. The grief took his life. His remaining son Asmanja was not a good person, and had been banished from the kingdom. But the son of Asmanja – Anshuman, turned out to be a very noble person. Sagar made him the King. Anshuman made a vow to bring water of Ganga to the earth. He forsook his kingdom and did mediation and penance all his life. But was not successful. He had one son, Dilip. The onus of accomplishing this task fell on to his shoulder. He too followed the path of meditation and penance, but quickly lost his health and passed away. The mantle for this task was now taken up by Dilip’s son, Bhagirath.

He prayed to Brahma for long years. Finally, Brahma was pleased, and he blessed Bhagirath with the promise that Ganga would descend from Baikunth and will come to earth. The narrative further tells us of the problem of the strength and volume of the flowing waters of Ganga. The earth or any person on earth could not withstand the force of the flow of Ganga. Then Bhagirath prayed to Lord Shiva, who agreed to let the holy river Ganga descend on to him, he would bear the main brunt of the force, and then the rest of earth and its people would then be blessed by it. There is a lot more detail in this narrative, appearing in multiple scriptures.

The film ‘Har Har Gange’ of 1968 is produced under the banner of Nitin Chitra and is directed by Babubhai Mistry. (Another film by the same name was produced in 1979, and that too is also directed by the same person.) The star cast of the 1968 film is listed as Jaishri Gadkar, Abhi Bhattacharya, Mahesh Kumar, Sulochana, Jeevan, Bharti, BM Vyas, Arvind Pandya, Uma Dutt, Vishwas, SN Tripathi, Sudarshan, Babu Raje, Tuntun, Paulson, Dalda Hindustani, Mahesh Bhatt, Rajkumar, Shri Bhagwan, Saraswati Devi, Bhairavi, Uma Khosla, Meena Pankaj, Malti Shashi, Master Gopi, Prakash, Munna Bagla, Madhumati, Bela Bose, and Helen.

The film has 6 songs, all penned by Kavi Pradeep. The music is composed by SN Tripathi. The song has been rendered by Krishna Kalle. The occasion seems to be that King Bhagirath is leaving the kingdom to go to the forest to do penance and to free his dynasty from the curse that 60,000 of his ancestors had brought upon themselves. From the words in the verses, it seems as if the song is being performed on screen by the wife of King Bhagirath. I have not been able to locate her name in the related information available. I would request other knowledgeable readers to please add this information if available.

With this song, the 1968 film ‘Har Har Gange’ makes its debut on our blog. With the publication of this post we are coming to the home stretch with this series. Now just 4 more films from the 1960s remain in this project. More details about that later.

# Superstar Child Artist – Jr. Mehmood # 6
————————————————–
(Rafi Sings for Jr. Mehmood # 4)
————————————-

Welcome all to this post of today where we are going to enjoy a song from the 1973 movie ‘Ek Naari Do Roop’.

‘Ek Naari Do Roop-1973’ was directed by Madhusudan for ‘Co-operative Pictures’.

It was produced by S. Srivastava and presented by Shatrughan Sinha.

This movie had Shatrughan Sinha, Rashmi, Iftekhar, Madan Puri, Mehmood Junior, Malika, Lalita Kumar, Kajal, Rajni, Sapru, Chaman Puri, Honey Chhaya, Maruti, Moolchand, Qureshi, Ranvir Raj, Subhash, Master, Sheroo, Ratan, Chikoo, with Nadira and Roopesh Kumar. Asha Sachdev makes a special appearance in this movie.

Screenplay and Dialogues of this movie were written by Madhusudan. Editing of this movie was done by Kamlakar with Babubhai Shah as Assistant.

This movie had total five songs in it.

Lyrics of the songs of this movie were written by Naqsh Lyallpuri and Asad Bhopali. (Naqsh Lyallpuri had penned three songs while two songs were penned by Asad Bhopali including <a href="Dil ka soona saaz taraana dhoondhega(Ek naari do roop)(1973)“>the one most well known and popular song from this movie. And incidentally both the songs penned by Asad Bhopali for this movie were sung by Rafi Saab).

So far, three songs from this movie have been posted on the blog, and today’s song will be the fourth song from this movie being posted on the blog.

Asha Bhonsle, Mohd Rafi and Kishore Kumar have given their voices to the songs in this movie.

Music for this movie was composed by Ganesh.

This movie was passed by Censor Board on 15.09.1973…

I have not watched this movie so can’t say much about its performance of other trivia associated with this movie. However, from the part of this movie that I have watched, I can say that this movie must be an interesting movie to watch.

‘Ek Naari Do Roop-1973’ had total five songs in it of which three songs have already been posted earlier. After posting the third song from this movie Atul ji had mentioned that he wants to take movie to ‘Yippeeee’dom’ at the earliest possible. 😊

I had then requested him that one song will be shared by me as it was planned by me for this series almost four and half years back. (however, the video or audio of this song was not available then and even now I could not find it’s audio link. It is because one of our most respected and beloved members that we have the video of this song for our enjoyment).

Also, I would like to thank Atul ji for waiting and allow me to share this song here (the first song from this movie to be posted on the blog was naturally the most known song from this movie i.e. ‘dil ka soona saaz taraana dhoondhega’, and it was posted on the 31.07.2008).

In the previous post under this series we have enjoyed the song ‘aisa banoonga actor main yaaron’ … from the movie ‘Ghar Ghar Ki Kahaani-1970’. We had also gone through the filmography of Junior Mehmood from 1967 to 1970.

Today’s song is sung by Rafi Saab and it is picturised on Junior Mehmood and others.

With this song all the songs sung by Rafi Saab for Junior Mehmood stands covered, however one more song sung by Rafi Saab is there where Junior Mehmood is present without lip-syncing the song. This information was also shared by Junior Mehmood himself during my first conversation with him.

Following are the other three songs sung by Rafi Saab for Junior Mehmood;

Lagey koi lottery koi jackpot lagey

Na koi paisa na ilm

Birha ki rain sooni sooni sejariya

I think there could be more songs (one I have noted) sung by other singers for Junior Mehmood which we have to explore, and thus I am not concluding this series yet. Also, in the next post we can have a look on filmography of Junior Mehmood from 1971-1980.

Lyrics for the today’s song are by Asad Bhopali and music is composed by Ganesh.
This song, may not be that much popular, is still a nice entertaining and hummable song from this movie.

Let us now enjoy today’s song …

Blog Day : 3951 Post No. : 15027

Today’s song is from film Captain Kishore-1957. It is sung by Geeta Dutt under the baton of the magician of melody-Chitragupt.

Today I am deviating from my usual style of writing, because I am writing on my favourite singer- Geeta Dutt. So, no biography of any artiste and no other details. Only Geeta Dutt !

Long back, in our management class, our Professor conducted a survey in the class. He asked us to write the name of the Toothpaste we were using. Those days too, Colgate was the Brand leader. We were 30 students in the class. I was using Macleans’ (a brand that was available in India in those days), so I wrote Macleans’. Then he collected all 30 chits,added his own and started reading. The result was Macleans’-8, Kolynos-7, Colgate-7, Forhans-6 and 3 were using tooth powder. He explained to us that even the Brand leader, not necessary always, will lead in all consumer groups. It is a collective total which gives the leader its position.

The same is the case in any other field. Take the case of female playback Singers. From 1950s to 1970s, Lata was the Brand Leader, but personally I always liked Geeta Dutt. I simply loved Geeta’s voice which had so much flexibility and was also so soulful.

When you hear her sing Meera Bhajan, you get lost in Bhakti Ras, listen to her sad songs and gloom descends on you and hear her club/cabaret song,you feel like tapping or dancing. It seems like as if Geeta never bothered to be the No.1,she only wanted to be honest to her singing. She was a pure soul bearing no envy towards anyone. There is always a discussion whether she gave her best to S.D.Burman or O.P.Nayyar songs. Not many know that Geeta worked with more than 150 composers. I personally dont believe she ever compromised in her performance. Whether she sang for a well known composer,or an unknown one like M.A.Rouf, S.L.Pardeshi, Manohar, D.V.Gadekar, Kumar, M.Masurekar, T.K.Das, Ali Husain,Pt.Harbanslal or Rajhuns,she put all her soul and skill in rendering the song.

There is, however, always a personal liking. I always liked Geeta’s songs with O P Nayyar. Their association started with the film Aasman (1952). Though her songs like “dekho jaadu bhare more nain’ were very melodious and became quite popular,the film had flopped. The subsequent film Baaz (1953) was also the same story. Good songs-film flopped. But then Aarpar (1954), Mr. and Mrs.55, Musafirkhana (1955) and Miss Cocacola and C.I.D.-in 1956 brought commercial success. After C.I.D. in the year 1957, Geeta suffered on 2 counts. One,O.P.Nayyar started grooming Asha Bhosale and secondly Geeta was facing a lot of personal problems. The singing assignments coming her way were getting lesser and even she was cutting down on the same. In fact, she had expressed desire to completely stop singing in the year 1957.

In the year 1958 she got only 10 songs from O.P.Nayyar. But then she sang the iconic song in Howrah Bridge which made her name Amar in the history of Golden Age of HFM for ever. This incident has been narrated by the famous film/music writer Issac Mujaawar in the Marathi magazine Rasrang. When Howrah Bridge was being made,it was evident that all the songs will go to Asha. By that time ASHA had mastered the art of singing club/cabaret songs. It is said that rehersals were done for”Mera naam chin chin chu”. Shakti Samanta was the Director of the film. O.P.Nayyar never tolerated any interference fro the Producers or the Directors. Shakti da wanted that song to go to Geeta,as he genuinely felt that she is better suited to sing it. He called Nayyar one day and coolly explained to him the situation. Miraculously,Nayyar accepted the suggestion without a word of protest. May be his conscience was biting him,or may be he too thought on those lines. Whatever be the reason,Geeta was summoned next day and the song was given to her. The rest is History…….as they say !

The Dance Director was A Satyanarayana,who participated in almost every club dance he choreographed. He did an excellent job for this song and the song became the highlight of the film,along with Asha’s ‘Aayiye meherban’. This is my most favourite song for 3 reasons.One-the tune is very catchy, two-Geeta ji’s voice is very seductive here and three-the choreography of the song is just superb !

Now, cut to….

City- Bombay

Date- 20th July 1972
Place- Harkissondas Hospital,Bombay

Few people were standing in the corridor . Anxiety,sorrow,helplessness and a little hope was clearly writ on their faces.They were all quiet.No one was talking to anyone.Their body language gave away their agony and restlessness.

Suddenly,a Doctor came out of a patient’s room.All ran to him and then stopped.The Doctor’s face and the tears in his eyes told them what they were afraid of !
No one said anything.No one asked anything. The Doctor said, ” I am sorry.She is no more.” He left, dragging his heavy feet.

The end of an Angel had come !
Geeta Dutt was gone for ever !!
Only her memories and the inimitable voice was left behind !!!

Born on 23-11-1930 at Idlapur in Fareedkot District of East Bengal,to a big Zamindar,Devendranath Roy Chaudhury and Amiya Roy Chaudhury,Geeta inherited her mother’s love for music.She learnt Classical Music from Pt.Hirendranath Chaudhury,while studying in an Anglo-Bangla school.

When she was just 12 year old,the family had to run away from East Bengal,to save their lives-leaving all property behind- to Bombay. In Bombay,we all know how Pt. Hanuman Prasad,MD(ex husband of Lalita Pawar) discovered her for playback in Hindi films. Later when S D Burman heard her singing,he knew instinctively that this was the voice which will make him successful and establish in Bombay.Till then Burman had not succeeded much to his satisfaction. To give her songs in ‘ Do Bhai ‘-47, he had to convince Chunilal of Filmistan,with great difficulty.

Geeta did not disappoint.’ Mera sunder sapna beet gaya” and ” Yaad karoge” made history and put both Geeta and Burman in Top league overnight.

Do Bhai made other famous composers to sit up and take notice of this new voice. They lined up to give Geeta ‘ Gaaon’-47(Khemchand Prakash), Leela, Shehnai and Saajan-47 ( C.Ramchandra), Geet Govind-47 (Gyan Dutt), Actress-48 (Shyamsunder), Chunariya-48 (Hansraj Behl), Padmini-48 (Ghulam Hyder) and Ek thi Larki-49(Vinod).

1950 was Geeta’s year.Many hits came – Banwre nain, Har Har Mahadev and Jogan solidified her position on Top.Composers felt she was inevitable,for their success.

Before recording, Geeta used to sit with Lyricist,understand the words and the implied meanings, then hear the tune from the composer and then sing in her own style. Basically, Geeta was very Gifted and hence with just one rehearsal, she could record the song to the entire satisfaction of all concerned. This made her the darling of the Composers.

Now,the newer MDs like,Hemant kumar, Vasant Desai, Madan Mohan and O P Nayyar also vied with each others to take Geeta. While doing Baazi -51, she met Guru Dutt and they got married on 26-5-1953. She was earning thousands of rupees in singing,but that time Guru Dutt was not that successful.Some magazines and Papers,said that he married Geeta for her money. Guru Dutt was furious and asked Geeta NOT to sing for others,restricting her to only his films.This suffocated her and she rebelled against it,which spoiled their relationship further.

Geeta had a liking and flair for acting. In Calcutta,she had acted as a Heroine in Bangla film-‘ Badhu Baran”. She got many offers but once she decided to settle in Bombay she refused all offers. Few people know that in Bombay a Hindi film- ‘ Tera saath hai Pyaara ‘,with Geeta as a Heroine had started,but unfortunately,after few reels,the film got shelved. To give a chance to her and to mend their relationship, Guru Dutt started filming ‘ Gauri” with Geeta as a heroine. However due to reasons well known to all, Geeta gave up this Bangla film, half way. This made the couple more distanced from each others. We all know the story’s end…..

Somewhere in 1971,there was a programme ” Yaaden Shakeel ki” in Bhaidas Hall, Parle. I had gone to that programme and I saw Geeta Dutt there.Many singers had come there-Rafi, Mukesh, Mahendra kapoor, Chandru Atma and Lata. When Lata was to come for singing there was a flurry of activity on the stage with everybody trying to please Lata. Lata came,sang and left like a Queen. When Geeta came on the stage, hardly anyone did anything for her. This is how this world is ! Geeta came, drew Harmonium near her and sang a Gazal of Shakeel Badayuni. When she finished,there was a clapping louder than what Lata had received,from the Audience-people knew her value !!

Geeta was optimistic even in 1971. She used to say, ‘ If 2 hit songs in Aradhana can take Kishore Kumar to the Top, even 2 Hit songs for me will do the same.” But it was not to be. Even the regular composers like O P Nayyar turned their backs on her. The Destiny decided to call her back !!!

One of my regrets was that if only Naushad had supported Geeta, she would have gained eminence for his songs for ever, like Saigal, Surendra, Parul Ghosh, Zohrabai, Amirbai, Naseem Akhtar, Shamshad, Noorjehan, Suraiya, UmaDevi, Talat, Mukesh, Rafi and Lata….but Geeta’s name was not in this list. I am not a statistician,so I can not say how many songs she sang for Naushad, but I am sure it was almost nothing !

Geeta’s voice was typical Bengali.She sang sad songs most wonderfully. Burman da who gave her emotional songs in Do Bhai, also gave her peppy club songs in Baazi, to make use of the sexy tinge in her voice. Further O P Nayyar fully exploited this special feature in Geeta’s voice. Her voice was sometimes sweet sometimes Namkeen. It had a depth. In this case, Geeta was one step ahead of Lata. Geeta’s voice was different for every situation. When she sang,’ Baat chalat nayee chunari’, you felt she would have been a better singer- classical singer than Laxmishankar. When she sang,’ Main to Giridhar ke ghar jaoon ‘, you felt Oneness with God,hearing her Bhaktiras dripping voice.

Juthika Roy was famous for Meera Bhajans, but I always felt that her voice was same in any Bhajan, while Geeta’s Bhajans exuded different emotions in every Bhajan.

While singing Club songs, Geeta was a different person. Just recall that ‘Hey hey hey hey before Tadbeer se bigdi hui taqdeer bana le song or listen to O Babu O Lala or Mera naam chin chin chu, then you will realise what I am saying !

One very important point in Geeta’s singing is not highlighted by many. In Hindi films there are many Male and female versions of songs and many singers have sung them.While singing such female version songs, Geeta never lost to the male singers ! All Geeta versions were more popular than the Male versions.

Both Asha and Lata lost on this count.

You will remember Kishore’s ” Jeevan ke safar me raahi” but not Lata’s version. You will remember Talat’s ” Aye gham-e-dil kya karoon’ but not Asha’s version. Kishore was better than Asha in ” Zindagi ek safar hai Suhana” versions and also Kishore was better than Lata’s version of ” Khilte hai gul yahan’.

When it comes to Geeta, she never lost to male versions. C H Atma’s ” Preetam aan milo” is remembered by less people than Geeta’s ” Preetam aan milo” from Mr. and Mrs.55 (same song. Written by Saroj Mohini Nayyar, O.P.’s wife). Geeta’s “Kaise koi jiye (Baadbaan)” is much better than Hemant Kumar’s version. Similarly,” Hai ye duniya kaun si'(Sailaab) and ‘ Na ye chand hoga”(Shart). In both songs, Geeta is superior and more popular than Hemant kumar. (There is a story behind the song-Na ye chaand Hoga. Once a jilted young lover committed suicide under train at Patna. In his pocket these lines were written on a paper-Tumhare liye hain, tumhare rahenge, Na ye chand hoga, na tare rahenge, magar hum hamesha tumhare rahenge. Lyricist S.H.Bihari used these lines in his song).

On 22nd July 1972,just 2 days after Geeta’s death, there was a preplanned programme of Juthika Roy in Birla Matoshri Sabhagriha,Bombay. I had booked my tickets well in advance, so I went there. In the beginning everyone paid respects to Geeta Dutt, by standing for 2 Minutes. Talat, Jagmohan and Surendra were also there. Then Juthika Roy came on stage, drew Harmonium near her and started singing ‘ Pag ghungaroo bandh…” .

I was lost in Geeta’s memory and saw Geeta with a Harmonium singing ” Main to Giridhar ke ghar jaoon”………………….

Lyrics

Dekho ji dil na todo
nahin to main

chhodo jee zidd ye chhodo
nahin to main
ro doongi

dekho jee dekho
naye fashion ka zamaana hai
main to nayi hoon
mera sab zewar puraana hai
dekho jee dekho
naye fashion ka zamaana hai
main to nayi hoon
mera sab zewar puraana hai
necklace mangaa do jee

tik tik kare jo ghadi
chhoti si wo laa do jee
gahnon se mujhko saja do
nahin to main

dekho ji dil na todo
nahin to main

duniya dikha do
saare hawaai jahaaz se
haathhon mein chhatri le ke
utroongi main naaz se
duniya dikha do
saare hawaai jahaaz se
haathhon mein chhatri le ke
utroongi main naaz se
London mein ghoomoongi
Paris mein jhoomoongi
Roos ke laal laal phoolon ko main choomoongi
jaldi se ticket mangwa do
nahin to main
ro doongi
dekho ji dil na todo
nahin to main
ro doongi

baag ho bangla ho
American motor car ho
oonchi society mein
mera intzaar ho
baag ho bangla ho
American motor car ho
oonchi society mein
mera intzaar ho
naghme sunaaoongi
jaadoo jagaaoongi
apne ishaaron pe
main sab ko nachaaungi
yes keh ke mujh ko hansa do
nahin to main
ro doongi
Dekho ji dil na todo
nahin to main
ro doongi

Missing Films of 1960s – 107
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

The film that is being introduced today is ‘Lav Kush’ from 1967. It was a time when mythological and religious films were still a draw – a draw enough for producers to continue producing this genre of films. It was a crop of artists, producers and financiers who held sway in the decades from the early years of Indian cinema, till maybe 1980s. Beyond that, once that crop withered away – passing away, retiring, or just plain fatigue, this genre of films has seen only a downward slide.

The film is produced by Basant Pictures. Regulars will recall that Basant Pictures is an off shoot of the Wadia Movietone, and both these production banners have witnessed great success in the 1940s and 1950s – Wadia with their stunt films (mostly starring Nadia), and Basant with their religious and social offerings.

The film is directed by SN Tripathi; ah yes, the same person who is also the music director. The cast of actors reads like Jaishri Gadkar, Aseem Kumar, Sheel Kumar, Bela Bose, Bablu, SN Tripathi, Chitra, Dalpat, BM Vyas, Hari Shukla, Bhagwan Sinha, RC Pandey, and Lalita Desai. The film has seven songs listed, and all the seven are penned by songwriter Saraswati Kumar Deepak.1

The song is a dance song in the royal court. The time of narrative is when Lord Ram has safely returned to Ayodhya, He has been crowned as the king, and the Ram Rajya is installed. Things seem to be settling down and moving smoothly. At this juncture, it becomes known that Sita is expecting and should become a mother soon.

This song is played at this time, when a court full of ladies marking this celebration with their good wishes blessings. The lead dancer in this song is Bela Bose. Interesting to note that Bela Bose is known for the ‘other’ types of dances. However, this dance – cast in a combination of semi classical plus folk steps – is no less impressive.

Maybe 5, or 6 films more to go for the 1960s list. Hopefully soon. 🙂

 

Song – Aao Ri Pyaari Behna Hil Mil Gaao Ri  (Lav Kush) (1967) Singer – Suman Kalyanpur, Lyrics – Saraswati Kumar Deepak, MD – SN Tripathi
Chorus

Lyrics

aao ri pyaari behna

hare hare amuvaa ki chutney piswaao ri

lag gaya satwaan mahina
dekho jhukna kathin ho gaya

kaise buhaarengi anganwaa
ke achra khisakne laga
achra khisakne laga
phoolon ki sej pe in ko sulaao ri
bahurani Seeta ji ki
god bharaao ri
bahurani Seeta ji ki
god bharaao ri

tulsi ko pooj ke
suraj devta ki karey vinti Siya
karey vinti Siya
choom choom achra
suhaginan bahu ko aashish de diya
bahu ko aashish de diya
nauven mahine mein to munna khilaao ri
bahurani Seeta ji ki
god bharaao ri
bahurani Seeta ji ki
god bharaao ri

aao ri pyaari behna
hilmil gaao ri
bahurani Seeta ji ki
god bharaao ri
bahurani Seeta ji ki
god bharaao ri

आओ री प्यारी बहना
हिलमिल गाओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री
आओ री प्यारी बहना
हिलमिल गाओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री

एक मास बीता दूसरामास बीता
ये तीसरा महिना
ये तीसरा महिना
कच्चा पक्का वार मन को ना भावे थाल
देखो भूख लागे ना
देखो भूख लागे ना
हरे हरे अमुवा की चटनी पिसवाओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री

लग गया सातवाँ महिना
देखो झुकना कठिन हो गया
झुकना कठिन हो गया
कैसे बुहारेंगी अंगनवा
के अचरा खिसकने लगा
अचरा खिसकने लगा
फूलों की सेज पे इनको सुलाओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री

तुलसी को पूज के
सूरज देवता की करे विनती सिया
करे विनती सिया
चूम चूम अचरा
सुहागिनन बहू को आशीश दे दिया
बहू को आशीश दे दिया
नौवें महीने में तो मुन्ना खिलाओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री

आओ री प्यारी बहना
हिलमिल गाओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री
बहुरानी सीता जी की
गोद भराओ री
