It is an unintended coincidence that my next post after film Suhagi-48 is on a song from film Suhag-1940. The titles have some resemblance but they are far different in content and presentation.

The year 1940 was the end of the first decade of Talkie films. From 1931 to 1939 most of the film music was made and sung by people who were experts in Classical Music. Classical music has never been the area of common people. It was born in Temples and nurtured in the Darbars of Kings and Nawabs. When film music relied heavily on classical mode, it became an imposition on the masses. Luckily, from the last 2 years of the 30’s, film music started changing and the emphasis shifted to traditional and Folk tunes over the classical.

1940 saw the emergence of Naushad with his first film “Prem Nagar”, as an independent Music Director. He is the one who advocated the combination of classical with Folk music and this was accepted by other Music Directors. More people now turned to film songs.Music Directors like Naushad, Anil Biswas, C Ramchandra, Saraswati Devi, Gyan Dutt, Pankaj Mullick and their followers in the later part of the 40’s changed film music upside down.

National Studios emerged from the merger of Sagar Movietone and Mehboob gave his blockbuster milestone film ” Aurat”. Himanshu Rai died untimely and the reigns of Bombay Talkies came into the hands of Devika Rani. Ranjit brought more popular films from its factory. Though there were signs of slow death, New Theaters still continued with musical films. Prabhat brought its third successive Saint film ‘ Sant Gyaneshwar”. Wadias looked after their Stunt films with fearless Nadia and John Cavas.

In the south, S S Vasan started his Gemini Studios. Master Vinayak and P K Atre started Navyug Films. In August 1940, there was a big fire in New Theatres leading to heavy losses. The use of Harmonium was banned on A.I.R. Due to War Times, Raw Film controls were given to Film Advisory Board. It also gave rise to Black Marketing of Raw film, in addition to already existing Rationing, and a new class of rich investors emerged in film industry shaking its established Studio Systems and Culture.

The year 1940 made only 86 Hindi films, less than 100 for the third consecutive year in a row. Let us take a look at some important films of 1940.

New Theatres film Aandhi had good music and songs.
Bombay Talkies continued with Ashok kumar and Leela Chitnis with film Azaad, but it was not as popular as Jhoola, Kangan and Bandhan.
A dubbed forein film -“Azadi E Watan” was the only Hindi film for which Malika Pukhraj had sung 2 songs.
Ranjit’s Achhut tackled a social evil, with good songs composed by Gyan Dutt.
A Stunt film of Shankar Vazare ” Aflatoon Aurat” had an English song in it.
Sagar’s last film ” Alibaba” by mehboob was released. “Aurat” a Landmark film by Mehboob for national Studios was the origin of its remake ” Mother India’57’.
Film ‘ Bharosa’ by minerva was based on an Incest story.
Sirco’s offering ‘ Geeta’ had a crime story, with double roles of Chandramohan and Durga Khote.
Prakash Pictures film ‘Narsi Mehta’ had Sant Tukaram fame Vishnupant Pagnis and some good bhajans.
Film Usha Haran saw the Debut of Sitara Devi.
Film Zindagi from New Theatres had very good songs by Saigal.

Today’s film Suhag-40 was made by CIRCO productions. Let us know something about this film company and its owner…

Chimanlal Trivedi, was one of the major film makers of the 30s and the 40s decade. He was more a Producer businessman than a Director. While he directed hardly 7 films, he produced close to 50 films- all having A grade actors, directors and composers !

Born on 19-3-1909 at a village near Anand in Gujarat he was from a Brahmin family. He did his schooling in Ahmedabad and technical graduation from Baroda. Being an expert in weaving, he took up a job as a weaving Master in Calcutta. Fond of writing, he started writing Dramas, which were staged in Bengal and Gujarat. He was attracted towards Cinema and tried some work in New Theatres. Knowing that the real playing field is Bombay he reached there. He wrote the story of film Chevrolet-36 and Danger Signal-37 for Mohan pictures.

He established his own production company CIRCO (Cine Industries Recording COmpany) in 1937. By 1943, he had made 12 films. He preferred not to direct his films, but appointed directors like Mohan Sinha for Laxmi-40, Anuradha-40 and Vanmala-41, Balwant Bhatt for Suhag-40 and Madhusudan-41, A R Kardar for Swami-41 and Nai Duniya-42 and Debki Bose for Apna Ghar-42.

He had the art of getting the most popular stars for his films like, Prithviraj kapoor, Chandramohan, Durga Khote,Mazhar khan, Bibbo,Surendra, Jairaj, Sitara, Jeevan, Yaqub, Shobhana Samarth, Prem Adeeb, Vishnupant Pagnis,Leela Desai, Pahadi Sanyal, Shanta Apte and many others. Even big directors like Debki Bose,Nitin Bose, Kardar,Mohan Sinha, Sarvottam Badami, Nandlal Jaswantlal,Profull Roy, Sudhir Sen, R S Caudhari, Phani mujumdar, Balwant Bhatt etc. worked for him. From Prabhat he brought Shanta Apte for Rs.1000 pm, and also Chandramohan, Pagnis and Mazhar khan. His friend Chandulal Shah followed his way and brought K L Saigal from New Theatres !

C L Trivedi was an expert in gathering funds for his films. After CIRCO at Parel, he started Laxmi Productions at Andheri, in 1942. He made mera Gaon,Sharafat,Bhagya Laxmi,Kadambari,Tamanna,Inkaar,Mohabbat,Miss Devi etc. In 1951, it was Supreme Pictures, Trivedi Productions was in 1952, Kala Kendra in 1953 and with Chitra Bharati in 1954, he made 13 films upto 1961. Top Composers like Timir Baran,Ashok Ghosh,Rafiq Gaznavi,K C Dey,Saraswati Devi,Husnlal-Bhagatram and Naushad gave music to his films.

Film Suhag was directed by Balwant Bhatt- elder brother of Nanabhai Bhatt. Its cast was Kumar, Bibbo, Mazhar, Ashalata, S Nazir etc. The music was by Timir Baran.

Timir Baran Bhatacharya belonged to a family of Sanskrit Scholars. He was born on 10-7- 1904. He learned Sarod playing initially from Radhika Prasad Goswami and then remained a student of Ustad Allauddin Khan ( who also taught internationally famous Ravi Shankar). He toured Europe and the USA after joining Uday Shankar’s Dance Troupe in 1930. He had an unrivalled reputation as a composer of dance music of that period. He was a symbol of passionate rendering. Worked in Madhu Bose’s Calcutta Art Players 1934 and visited Java and Bali.

On joining the New Theatres, he composed music for “Devdas” in 1935-“Balam Aao Baso Morey Mann Mein”. Other important films include “Pujaran” 1936 (“Jo Beet Chuki so Beet Chuki Ab Us Ki Yad Sataye Keun”) produced by International Film Craft and “Adhikar” 1938 of New Theatres. His other Hindi films are Sagar’s “Kumkum, The Dancer”(1940), Circo’s “Laxmi” (1940) and “Raj Nartaki” (1941). Subsequently he joined All India Radio and conducted music for Tagore’s non-violence poetry in 1947. Later he composed music for Uma Production’s “Samapti” in 1949.

He then shifted to Bombay and worked at Sagar and Wadia studios. He directed music for films “Badbaan”(with S.K.Pal in 1954) at Bombay, Anokhi *(with Hasan Latif Lalik) at Karachi-Pakistan (1955- with songs of Zubeida Khanum filmed on Sheela Ramani), Fankar (W.Pakistan – 1956) and “Jog Biyog” (Bengali – East Pakistan – 1970). His earlier Bengali films included Bijoya 1935, Uttarayan 1941, Bondita 1945, Bicahrak 1959,Thana Theke Aschi 1965, Diba Ratrik Kabya 1970 and Dak Diyajai 1978.

Afterwards he devoted himself to the music faculty of Tagore’s Shanti Niketan at Calcutta. He left for the heavenly abode on 29-3-1987.

Today’s song is sung by Bibbo. Listen to the voice which was very famous and popular in the 1930’s .

Blog Day :

4613 Post No. : 16246 Movie Count :

Today’s song is a rare song, from an unknown film Suhagi-48. Yes, the title is Suhagi and NOT Suhag. It is rather an unusual and misleading title. There is a cluster of titles around the word Suhag. There were 4 films as Suhag and also 4 films as Suhagan. There was a film Suhag raat ke Pehle and then there were 3 films as Suhag Raat. 2 films as Suhag Sindoor. There were two films with funny titles like Suhag ka Daan and Suhag ka Balidan. And among all this cluster poor film Suhagi was hidden in a corner !

Made by Blue art pictures, the film was directed by A.Shakoor, who directed only one more film in his career- Paayal-48, also made by the same banner. Film Suhagi was produced by Ismaile Devjee and the MD was Shaukat Dehlavi.

1948 was an year in which all the industries-including film industry- were trying to come back to normalising their businesses. The new government had not yet changed any laws and rules, so there was peace on all fronts. The Black money which was being poured into making films was now used by Politicians and thus the film industry was almost back to genuine producers and filmmakers. Most of the famous studios were on the verge of ending the studio system and studio culture. Some big names like New Theatres, Prabhat, Sagar, Ranjit were now mere shadows of their earlier powerful existence.

While film makers lost an important topic of Patriotism( in a garb), they now concentrated on Indian culture, Mythology, History, Family values, Joint family importance, literacy and such development themes. This changed the face of films. However, stories based on Folk tales, Religion and Kings-Queens and evil Wazirs still continued with public patronage. Raj Kapoor emerged as a Director, Ashok Kumar became a middle aged Hero, Dilip and Dev prospered with love stories and young themes. Older Heroes, Heroines, Directors and character artistes started vanishing and a new crop of actors etc took over their mantle. Music was changing its tunes. Melody ruled over Lyrics now and Naushad, C Ramchandra, H-B, S – J, Madan Mohan and the likes of them started making names and films.

One major event that happened in 1948, was the entry of Southern producers into Hindi heartland, with a Bang, when S S Vasan brought his Magnum-Opus- ” Chandralekha”, with more than 600 prints for All Indfia release. The extraordinary success of this film paved the way of other big production houses of South, like AVM, L V Prasad etc. to push their Hindi remakes of successful Southern films into the Hindi markets all over India.

For the MD Shoukat Dehlavi of film Suhagi, it was only his second film as an MD. Do you know who this MD was ? He used 5 different names to compose music to 29 films in his career spanning from 1947 to 1965 in India. He composed 203 songs and also sang 3 songs in 3 films namely, Dildar-47, Aiye-49 and Baradari-55. His 5 names were 1. Shoukat Dehlavi, 2. Shoukat Hussain Dehlavi 3. Shoukat Ali 4. Shoukat Haidari and finally he took a permanent new name 5. NASHAAD.

I can remember only one more artiste who had 5 names in her life. She was known as Qamar Sultana, Indira, Indu, Jaijaywanti and AMEETA !

After Partition, there was a rush to migrate to Pakistan and artists continued to shift there from 47 to almost 1950. Some artistes like Noorjehan left immediately. There were few cases where some people borrowed money from friends and then left the country quietly, leaving the money lender high and dry. By about 49-50, almost everything was settled on both sides. The conditions in Lahore and Karachi had stabilised considerably for film making and lots of opportunities existed for film artistes there by mid 50s. That led to a second wave of migration to Pakistan at that time. Those who had continued in India completed their assignments here and went to Pakistan.

This type of Migration continued till almost mid 60s, when actor Kumar, MD Naashaad, producer actor Shaikh Mukhtar etc migrated to Pakistan. For the lucky ones, the talented ones and those who had preexisting ties in Pakistan sustained, prospered and were happy, but a few artistes suffered heavily. Once a popular Heroine, Meena Shorey, one of the most handsome actors of his times-Najmul Hasan and the hopeful Shaikh Mukhtar spent their last days in utter neglect, penury, disillusionment and sorrow. Actors like Noor Mohammed Charlie regretted their decision to migrate, but it was too late.
One of the later migrants was NASHAD, music director,who shifted in 1963 or so.

NASHAD was born as Shaukat Haidari,in Delhi,on 11-7-1923. He completed his schooling in Delhi, where he learnt playing the flute. He came to Bombay and worked as assistant/helper to many composers, learning to play different instruments. He even worked as assistant to Ghulam Haider and Naushad.

He was one composer who used several names to give music. His first film was Dildar in 1947. He used the name Shaukat Dehlavi for Dildar-47, Paayal-48, Suhagi-48, Dada-49, Ghazab-51 and Ram Bharose-51. He was Shaukat Hussain Dehlavi for Jeene do-48, Shaukat Ali for Toote Tarey-48 and Shaukat Haidari for Aiye-49.

He was considered a mediocre composer in India. Then one day he was called by producer Nakshab Jarchvi,who offered him a film,with a condition that he changed his name to Nashad. He accepted the offer and used the name Nashad throughout his life. After him his 15 children too used Nashad as their surname.

Nakshab Jarachavi wanted to make a film. Those days Naushad was the Top composer. Films were sold on his name. Naushad worked only for Top banners. Nakshab approached him and offered his film. Naushad scornfully said,” Hum kisi aire gaire ki film ko music nahi detey”. This infuriated Nakshab no end and he challenged Naushad that he will make another Naushad in the industry. He called the comparatively less known but talented Shaukat Haidari,changed his name to NASHAD (to resemble Naushad’s name) and gave him the film.

Nashad, on his part, tried very hard and gave the music to film Naghma. It was,though not like Nashad’s standard, but excellent songs were there and the film became a hit due to its music. Unfortunately, Nashad could not repeat his success again ever in India. As Nashad he gave music to 21 films (total 30 films),like Bara Dari, Bada Bhai, Naghma, Char chaand, Kaatil Jawab, Sabse bada Rupiah, Rooplekha, Darwaza etc

Nashad gave their first hindi movie singing breaks to Mubarak begum, Suman Kalyanpur and Sabita Banerjee.

His friend Nakshab Jarachavi had migrated to Pakistan after 1947 and was making films there. He called Nashad to Pakistan as a composer for his film Maikhana-64 (after his film Fanoos also crashed at the Box office in Pakistan). Nashad accepted his offer. Before leaving , Nashad married singer Premlata and both went to Pakistan. His first film became a major hit and Nashad was on top. He gave music to 64 films in Pakistan.

Nashad died in Lahore on 3-1-1981.

While in India, Nashad was always accused of plagiarism, to which he answered through an interview to Filmfare, dated 5th August 1955, ( Thanks to Cineplot) thus….

” Although no one says it to my face, I know that there is a section in the film industry who decry my music as “a rehash of familiar tunes.”
This amounts to a charge of plagiarism.

I have no defense, no apology, to offer, except to say that, if I am a plagiarist, I am one unconsciously.
With only seven main notes, six ragas, thirty-six raginis and seventy-two sub-raginis, every “new” musical composition is bound to sound familiar in places.
Try to hum any popular film composition of today and then cast back your mind. Make a careful search for a parallel and you will easily find one in some celebrated songs of yesterday.

I believe in popular music, music which people will like, humming and singing it in their homes—in moments of joy or sorrow. I try my-best to keep my compositions free from complicated “alaps,” “tans” and those notational cascades which the man-in-the­-street (who has no musical training) cannot easily remember and hum.

Film music, to be good and popular, must always be the result of team-work. The ego of the music-director as well as that of the lyric-writer needs to be suppressed completely, even to the extent of accepting suggestions from everyone in the unit.

In the music of one of my forthcoming films, the appeal of the songs owes much to suggestions made by the producer and mem­bers of his staff. One of the tunes owes its origin to an air I heard the office-boy humming!

The producer was no professional musician, but I discarded two of my best tunes to fit in a completely different third one based on his suggestions.
I am glad that I do not live in an ivory tower and am not deaf to the music of ordinary people, I say to myself : “If this is the kind of music they love, it is absurd to give them a high-brow composition. Both in rhythm and structure, I stick rigorously to what is popular, even at the sacrifice of my own preferences.

Such film music can be planned scientifically and with precision. My first job usually is to sit with the director and determine the musical “situations”. Once these are agreed upon, I start composing the melodies, in harmony with the “mood” of those situa­tions. Then the lyricist writes the words of the approved tune.

After the song has been recorded, our work is ended and it now depends on the director to make or mar it in his picturisa­tion of it. This, indeed, is a hurdle all film music must take.

Everyone has listened to film songs which sound good on the radio, yet have been “murdered” by poor picturisation. Every­one, too, has heard songs which on the air have sounded mediocre and of no particular merit, yet have been things of beauty in the film—thanks to clever directorial work. A really good song, given to a good director to picturise, seldom fails to go over in a big way with the public.

It is thus necessary for a music director to be careful in signing his contracts. It is important to him to make sure that the film for which he is employed to provide music will be directed by a competent man, so that not only are his songs not “murdered” in transcription to the screen but any possible shortcomings in them are glossed over by good picturisation.

Consequently I have always studied the directors of the films for which I am to provide music. One knows that one’s songs are safe with them and gain in appeal from attractive picturisation.

To these men, too, my tunes often sound “vaguely familiar”! But, then, what tune doesn’t ?
With only seven notes, six ragas, thirty-six raginis—but we’ve just gone over that! ”

Film Suhagi-48 had a starcast of Begum Para, Manorama, Sadiq Ali, Badri prashad, Jilloobai, Abu Bakar etc. The word Suhagi means ‘ Lucky ‘. However the name benefit does not seem to be got by the film, as it was not a famous or popular film.

I have no idea about the story of this film. From its ad.s in Film India, I guess the story was about a family’s bahu who is Lucky after marriage. Today’s song is sung by Rajkumari. With this song, film Suhagi-48 makes its Debut on our Blog.

“Aag”(1967) was produced and directed by Naresh Kumar for Dimple Dilms, Bombay. This movie had Feroz Khan, Mumtaz, Aruna Irani, Shyama, Srandhir, Madan Puri, Jeevan, Achla Sachdev, Manohar Deepak, Mohan Choti, Ram Mohan, Manmohan, Bipin Gupta, Amar Nath, Tun Tun, Indira Bansal, Ramlal, Sunder etc in it.

The movie had eight songs in it. Two songs have been covered in the past.

Here is the third song from “Aag”(1967) to appear in the blog. The song is picturised on Feroz Khan who plays a villager leading a contented life there as evidenced by this joie de vivre genre of song.

Towards the end of the song, we find Feroz Khan crossing a narrow stream on a narrow bridge. Half way on that makeshift bridge he comes across Mumtaz just as the song is coming to an end.

The song is sung by Mahendra Kapoor. Asad Bhopali is the lyricist. Music is composed by Usha Khanna.

Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-9 – (more than ‘ten-movies collaboration’)

In my earlier post in this series, I had mentioned that after the ‘seven-movie’ collaborations we have only three collaborations left and that they are ‘more than ten-movie collaborations’ with music directors N. Datta, S.D. Burman and Ravi.

So, out of total 717 songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi as per the total of HFGK 48% songs i.e., 347 songs are with music directors other than the above three music directors.

We have covered one of these ‘three-big’ collaborations i.e., Sahir-N. Datta collaboration in the earlier post. They collaborated for seventeen (17) movies including one un-released movie i.e., ‘Picnic-1960’. And the total number of songs from this collaboration are 108 (as per HFGK).
If we include the post before this the total number of songs now on the blog for Sahir- N Datta collaboration is 104.

Now we move to the next big collaboration which as per the total number of movies is with S.D. Burman, and Sahir and S.D. Burman collaborated for ‘eighteen’ (18) movies creating 134 songs. If we add the ‘verses’ from ‘Pyaasa-1957’ and two snippets (from ‘House no.44-1955’ and ‘Funtoosh-1956’ (as given in the book ‘The People’s Poet’ by Akshay Manwani) the total comes to 140. Well, we have 135 songs already posted on the blog for this collaboration.

I am not giving the details of movies of ‘Sahir-S.D. Burman collaboration’ in today’s post. I am leaving it to be covered in another post which will be coming on a very special occasion.
However, we can have a look of the summary of Sahir-S.D. Burman collaboration which is as given below;

S.no. MD Songs of lyricist in the blog Song penned by lyricist in movie as per HFGK Song penned by lyricist in movie as per the book -The People’s Poet
01 S.D. BURMAN 135 134 140

Today we are move to the next ‘one of the three great collaborations’ which is Sahir and music director Ravi.

But here we will take a pause, and listen to one of the songs of this association from the oldest pending movie ‘not yippeeee’ed’ on the blog which is ‘Paisa Ya Pyaar-1969’. (I am taking this liberty to cover one more song in this series 😊)

‘Paisa Ya Pyaar-1969’ was directed by Jawar N Sitaraman for ‘Gemini Productions, Madras’. It had Ashok Kumar, Mala Sinha, Biswajeet, Tanuja, Shashikala, Jagirdar, Aseem Kumar, Abhimanyu Sharma, Gopal Krishnan, Sharad Kumar, Lalita Kumari, Praveen Pal, Sarita Devi and others.

This movie had five songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by Ravi.

So far, three songs of this movie have been posted on the blog. Today we listen to the fourth song of this movie which is sung by Asha Bhonsle and performed on screen by Mala Sinha.
I have not watched this movie ‘Paisa Ya Pyaar’, but when I listened to the today’s song it looks like a familiar song but not much heard or frequently played song.

And the composition by Ravi also appears to be a ‘Shankar-Jaikishan’ style composition.
That is what I think 😊

let us now listen to the today’s song …


Song-Jaane kyun baar baar baar mera dil (Paisa Ya Pyaar)(1969) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Sahir Ludhianvi, MD-Ravi

Lyrics

jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

jis’se milte nahin
bilkul hi khayaalaat tere
kyun pareshaan hai uske liye
jazbaat tere
jab bhi wo mujhse milaa
usne sataaya mujhe
mujhko buraa to lagaa
phir bhi wo bhaayaa mujhe ae
jab bhi wo mujhse milaa
usne sataaya mujhe
mujhko buraa to lagaa
phir bhi wo bhaayaa mujhe
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

jo tere husn ki tauheen kare
us’se naa mil
jo kisi doosri sajdhaj pe mare
us’se naa mil
mujhko to jo bhi dekhe
raahon mein aahen bhare
main kyun kisi pe maroon
mujh pe zamaana marey
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

ho sake to koyi
sangeen sazaa de usko
tere qaabil nahin wo
dil se bhulaa de usko
usko bhulaaun kaise
itnaa bataa do mujhe
uska iraadaa kya hai
kuchh to bataa do mujhe
usko bhulaaun kaise
itnaa bataa do mujhe
uska iraadaa kya hai
kuchh to bataa do mujhe
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil
jaane kyun baar baar baar
mera dil
mujhe kahe usse mil
mujhe kahe usse mil

Only the audio of the song appears to be available. The song is a bhajan. I request our knowledgeable readers to throw light on the picturisation of the song.


Song-Shyam dhun laagi (Beti)(1969) Singer-Lata, Lyrics-Shakeel Badayuni, MD-Sonik Omi

Lyrics

chhod ke tera daar main giridhar

shyaam dhun laagi
hari naam dhun laagi
mere man mein base nand laala

aanchal mein jo toone bhare dukh
mere liye sab taare hain
aanchal mein jo toone bhare dukh
mere liye sab taare hain
tere haath se kaante milenjo
wo bhi mujhko pyaare hain
bana de mujhe chaahe
mita de mujhe chaahe
bana de mujhe chaahe
mita de mujhe chaahe
tere naam ki japti hoon maala
ho o o
shyam dhun laagi
hari naam dhun laagi re

giridhar tu hai daya ka saagar
tere charan ki main daasi
giridhar tu hai daya ka saagar
tere charan ki main daasi
vyaakul man ki pyaas bujha de
aaj to gokul ke waasi
jaloon main din raina
na aaye mohe chaina
jaloon main din raina
na aaye mohe chaina
mera biraha se pad gaya paala
ho o
shyam dhun laagi
hari naam dhun laagi
mere man mein base nandlaala
ho o
shyam dhun laagi

Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors-8 – (more than ‘ten-movies collaboration’)
—————————————————————————————————–

In this series ‘Sahir Ludhianvi & His Music Directors’ today we have discussed Sahir Ludjainvi’s collaboration with Music directors upto ‘seven movies’. After seven-movies collaborations we move to double figures. Today’s music director with Sahir is N. Datta.

If we look at the total number of songs written by Sahir i.e.,717 as per HFGK and the total number of songs up to ‘seven-movie collaboration’ which is 347 songs from movies, which gives us 48% songs from these collaborations. (Out of these 347 songs 328 songs have already been posted on the blog.)

After this we have only three music directors left to be discussed. I am sure everybody is aware of these three ‘great’ collaborations though the very old and first one ended abruptly after ‘Pyaasa-1957’ i.e., Sahir-S.D. Burman collaboration.

Today we look into one of these ‘three’ great collaborations of Sahir and that is with music director N. Datta.

This fabulous collaboration created many memorable songs gems and gave us many unforgettable gems in Hindi Film Music history.

Sahir Ludhianvi and N. Datta collaborated in ‘seventeen’ movies including one song for one ‘un-released’ movie.

Here is the details of their movies together;

17 Picnic U/R 1960 N. Dutta 1 0
Total 103 108 109

Sahir Ludhianvi and N. Datta collaborated in ‘seventeen’ movies (including one un-released movie) and out of 717 songs as per HFGK the number of songs Sahir-N. Datta collaboration had given us 108 songs i.e., 15% of total number of songs.

If we go through the list of movies (as given above), we have two movies yet to be covered with all of their songs. These two movies are ‘Dilli Ka Daada-1962’ and ‘Chehre Pe Chehra-1980’.
For ‘Dilli Ka Daada-1962’ only one Sahir song is pending and I guess this song is yet not available and/or difficult to find. So, we move to the next movie which is ‘Chehre Pe Chehra-1980’.

‘Chehre Pe Chehraa-1980’ was directed by Raj Tilak, for ‘Tilak Movies, Bombay’.

Raj Tilak was also the producer of this movie.

It had Sanjeev Kumar, Rekha, Vinod Mehra, Sulakshana Pandit, Amol Palekar, Rajani Sharma, Shree Ram Lagoo, Iftekhar, Shammi, Suresh Chatwal, Kumar Aditya, Prem Sagar and others.

Shatrughan Sinha and Amjad Khan make special appearances in this movie.

Screenplay of this movie was written by Raj Marbrose and dialogues were written by Kadar Khan. Editing of this movie was done by Madhu Sinhaa.

This movie is said to be based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel ‘Dr. Jeykll & Mr. Hyde’ and it was passed by Censor Board on 21.05.1980 with restricted viewing certificate (i.e., ‘A’).

This movie had six songs written by Sahir Ludhianvi and composed to music by N. Datta. Background music for this movie was given by Salil Chaudhary.

Manna Dey, Mohd Rafi, Asha Bhonsle and Sulakshana Pandit had given their voices to the songs in this movie.

As per HFGK Vol-V (1971-1980) following is the list of songs of this movie;

S.No. Song Title Singer/s Posted On
01) Aa aa aa… ye raat nek raat hai Manna Dey, chorus
02) Jaam, le jaam, pakad jaam Asha Bhonsle
03) Aaj socha hai khayaalon mein Mohd Rafi, Sulakshana Pandit 08.03.2018
04) Main hoon pari, adaaon bhari Asha Bhonsle, chorus
05) Tumse kehnaa hai ki dushwaar Sulakshana Pandit
06) Aa kuchh karen is haseen raat mein Dilraj Kaur, chorus

Let us now enjoy today’s song which is sung by Asha Bhonsle. It is lip-synced on screen by Rekha. This is a club-dance number where we can see many other artists and Sanjeev Kumar makes his entry towards the end of the performance …

Let us have a look at the following table where after including the ‘Sahir-N. Dutta’ collaboration (today’s song not included) we get the following statistics so far;
