Atul’s Song A Day- A choice collection of Hindi Film & Non-Film Songs

Kyaa teri zulfen hain kyaa teri aankhen hain

Posted on: August 9, 2011


This article is written by Sudhir, a fellow enthusiast of Hindi movie music and a regular contributor to this blog.

Browsing through some songlists, I started to play this song last evening; and then just like that, checked the blog. Wow, this song must be brought on. And I am sure you will agree too.

Hum Sab Ustad Hain, a B Grade action comedy from 1965, is a movie remembered for its music and iconic songs. The star cast amply reflects the theme and the possible storyline right away. Having Dara Singh, Sheikh Mukhtar, Kishore Kumar, Ameeta, Maruti, Bela Bose, Samson, King Kong, and a list of less familiar and unfamiliar artists that is longer than your arm, is a clear indication of a complicated cloak and dagger story played for fun. I was just browsing the credits of the film, and believe me there is an artist listed with the name Jaggaa Jhat, and another with the name Fanda. I also discovered to my amusement that this movie is conceived and directed by Maruti. Maruti, who is the regular sidekick of the he-man heroes of action movies in the 50s and 60s, before Mehmood came in and displaced him as the lead comedian from the movies in late 60s and 70s. Given this background, one can expect a lot of slapstick and fun, and if that is combined with some of the best music created by Laxmikant Pyaarelal, the movie is a treat worth watching.

As I am working on this write up, and browsing the net for information, I came across this avidly readable review of this film on Memsaaab’s blog. I would suggest the interested readers to read this review, both for fun and for lot of information.

This particular song is penned by Asad Bhopali. It is a wonderful duet by Kishore Da and Asha Bhosle, performed on screen by Kishore Da himself and Ameeta. Anything that Ameeta may leave to desire as far as acting department is concerned is more than made up by the music and the words and Kishore Da’s presence.

Another one of those ‘humming partners’ that I generally carry around in my head all the time. Enjoy this veritable musical treat from Asad, LP and Kishore, Asha.

Sudhir ji,
On the face of it,it looks surprising that MARUTI,a comedian has directed this movie,but it seems from the records,that he has directed atleast few more movies.
Some of these movies are,Baghi Shehzada-1964,Bank Robbery-1969,
The Killers-1969 and Mangu Dada-1970.
MARUTI always acted in movies directed by him.He was very friendly and close to Shaikh Mukhtar and Dara Singh.Maruti was a serious person off the film sets and was an educated and wellmannered person,who liked to read English novels.
Either Dara singh or Shaikh Mukhtar always featured in his directorial ventures.Shaikh Mukhtar was so close to him that,it is rumoured that only Maruti knew that Shaikh Mukhtar was to run away to Pakistan with the prints of his films-notably Noor Jehan(produced by him).

Arun ji,

If ever there is a need for a google feature on this blog, I am sure all will nominate you to head it. 🙂

Yes, it is interesting to note that Maruti as a person is so much more adept and intelligent, unlike the bumbling characters he would be playing on screen. I am sure there are many others like him that go unrecognized for the complete personality that they are; case in point can be IS Johar, OP Ralhan that come to mind right away.

At that period if you obseve their distributionb pattern of songs,Laxmi pyare used only lata lata and lata. They rarely used ashaji`s vocal at their starting stage of career. If at all they have given the chance to ashaji, it is only for the songs sung by second leads.(exceptionally they have give one(or two) song to asha parekh in aaye din bahaar ke-“Khat likh de sanwariya ke naam baabu)
That`s why,It is very refreshing to listen asha with kishore(under laxmi pyare musical baton),for all that crisp singing(giving sudden jhatkas in between the song). This is one of my favourite song(as ashaji matching step to step with kishoreji`s singing “SHARAARATHI” antics)

I have seen this song only in Doordarshan channel, that also in late 80`s(Peevisie`s momji,is right). that too in its early rangoli programme.

These days it is becoming a fashion to telecast only the songs picturised on only famous and popular actor and actresses.Must be for the channel TRP ratings, I think.
(Regarding popularity, Here I am referring to
“not so popular”-AMEETHAji, not Kishoreji)

Prakash ji,

The same emotions at this end; currently there are no channels to get the films and songs of yesteryears anywhere, whether TV or cinema halls. It is good that there is YouTube, and more and more old movies are getting released on discs. It may take a long time before this segment gets organized to some extent. The nearest one can get to an organized effort is this blog, and all the credit and kudos go to Atul ji for his perseverance.

Old Hindi film songs can be seen on TV in ‘B4U Music’ between 7.00 – 8.30 a.m. daily. In addition, I get to see old Black & White Hindi movies and songs on a local TV channel ‘SAI Classics’ throughout the day.

I hope that with time this blog will serve as a good source of reference for Hindi film music of the golden era and before. We have already made good progress. Nearly all K L saigal songs, nearly one third to one fourth of all songs in case of several music directors, discoveing some unknown songs and some unknown facts and figures, providing a list of songs, all these have already been accomplished. Undoubtedly far more needs to be done. I hope we will add far more number of songs, informations about them and other invaluable discussions about them in future.

I get to listen to old songs only when I get on the Internet and this blog, in particular, because here I get the song as well as some background info on the song, which makes it even more interesting. I love to go through Youtube and listen to old songs when I get the time, late at night, when the rest of the household is fast asleep, but this site is so much better than Youtube because I can sing along (and no one is around to listen!) Thanks, Atul, and all the viewers who have contributed so much to this blog, especially those who have been sending in lyrics and people like Sudhirji who seem to know so much about old Saigal songs. Thanks, everyone!.

Thanks for your kind words. And the contributions being made my Sudhirji is invaluable and goes far beyond just writing articles. He may be silently helping people appreciate K L Saigal’s songs. We do not receive too many comments on K L Saigal songs, but that does not matter. As a blog of old and often forgotten songs, it is our duty to bring these treasures to the notice of music lovers. There was a time when I was not “mature” enough to appreciate K L Saigal. Now hopefully I have become “mature” enough to appreciate his contribution. Hopefully others too will begin to appreciate him as they learn more about him. The 100 plus K L Saigal songs in this blog is a feat that to my mind is one of the shiniest feather in the cap of this blog and I cannot thank Sudhirji enough for making it possible.

Thanks to the contributions of several like minded music lovers, I hope that we will be able to enrich our collection of old gems much more in the days to come.

Sudhirji

another channel named “ZEE CLASSIC” telecasts almost forgotten films of past.(They also don`t show obscure films, they are interested in only POPULAR AND HIT old movies)

But our local cable operator refused to give the connection of this channel saying that” YOU are the only person to view and demanding that channel in our locality, no one sees that channel.It is impossible to cater to a single person’s demand.”

If at all ,still I want that channel I have to shell out more money for my own sepearate DTH connection(zee classic comes under the DISH T.V.label sponsored by ZEE t.v.). It is difficult for me to accommodate that much of expense within my monthly budget.

Further it is very difficult to cater to MY taste(of watching and listening old hindi movies and old hindi movie songs, which usually no one is interested with, atleast in my non-hindi speaking region).

That`s why I have to thank thousand times
ATULJI,
SUDHIRJI,
RAJAJI,ARUN DESHMUKHJI,NAHMJI,SADANAND KAMATHJI,LALITHAJI,PEEVESIE`S MOMJI
who provide this lovely and rare platform of Hindi movie songs(where you people passionately discuss about hindi movie songs), which is ultimate for me.
