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

Ham ne jo tum ko salaam kiya

Posted on: November 3, 2012


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

Sizzlers of the 60s – the phrase brings a handful of names to the mind. Of course, we have Helen and Bela Bose. And there are some performances by Aruna Irani, Laxmi Chhaaya. But talking of performances worthy of burning down the projection screens, the one name that you cannot do without is Faryal. This fairy queen of cabaret was a strong contender for the number two spot behind Helen, for long years in the 60s and 70s. Her dance numbers in films like ‘Jewel Thief’ (1967) (on instrumental music) and ‘Taxi Driver’ (1973) “Pyaar Karte Ho Yaar. . .” are some of the most fascinating cabarets in Hindi cinema.

Today, 3rd November, is the birth anniversary of Faryal. In a career that spans two decades, Faryal has performed in about 35 films. Her debut film, ‘Zindagi Aur Maut’ (1965) opposite to Pradeep Kumar, ‘Biraadari’ (1966) opposite to Shashi Kapoor and ‘Fareb’ (1968) opposite to Dev Kumar were roles as leading ladies. It so happened that Vijay Anand cast her as one of the gangster molls in the film ‘Jewel Thief’, in which she performs a cabaret dance on instrumental music alone. Her performance was good enough to have her typecast as a vamp and a cabaret dancer for the rest of her career.

Born in Syria of Indian father and Arabic mother, Faryal did all her education in India. After completing her graduation, she joined the Filmalya School of Acting, and moved into a career in Hindi films. Starting as a leading lady in some films that did not do too well at the box office, she transitioned into vamp and dancer roles pretty soon. And after spending about 20 years in the industry, she bid it a good bye in 1984, got married and is now settled in Israel.

Here is another screen sizzler by her from the 1970 film Insaan Aur Shaitaan. A film directed by Aspi Irani under the banner of Super Pictures, Bombay, it has a star cast that includes Sanjeev Kumar, Sheikh Mukhtar, Aruna Irani, Madhumati, Jagirdar, Iftekhar, Heeralal, Shetty, Sheikh, Chaman Puri, Praveen Paul etc. The music composition is by Usha Khanna. The songs are penned by Indeevar and Asad Bhopali, but the specific lyricist attribution for this particular song is not available. (NOTE: Of the four songs in this film, one is already represented in this blog “Chalte Raho Chalta Huaa Saahil Hai Zindagi”.

The following brief synopsis is excerpted from the write up on the earlier song posted.

Insaan Aur Shaitaan is a typical ‘cloak-and-dagger’ film that has all the elements of action thriller formula, and more. There are two Sanjeev Kumars, one a criminal, and the other a simple government servant turned nation-saving hero, there are beautiful ladies in the persona of Faryaal, Aruna Irani and Madhumati, and there are three cabaret songs (out of a total of four songs in the film), there is a gang of criminals by the name of Jwalamukhi, who all wear Ku Klux Klan type of masks, and their mysterious leader is called Mahaabali, there is Shetty in the role of Solanki Seth, a criminal mastermind, there is Heeralal in the role of Shankat, the ageing foot soldier of Mahaabali, there is a microfilm with national secrets, there is train load of gold that has been looted by the traitors, there is cocaine that is being smuggled, there is a mysterious tape recorder that contain clinching evidence, there are murders galore and bodies being thrown from trucks and being transported in food trolleys, there is Sheikh Mukhtar a family friend of the good Sanjeev Kumar, who mysteriously appears when needed, there is Iftekhar, the eternal police inspector, scheming to vanquish the enemies of the nation, there is family drama as family members are kidnapped to put pressure on their kin. If that does not leave you breathless, then there is still more you can find in the film.

This song is a cabaret performed by Faryal in a restaurant. The object of her words and emotions is Sanjeev Kumar, immaculate in white suit, and pretending to be somewhat aloof and unconcerned with the advances being made by a partially clad Faryal. One can also see Shetty in this clip.

Greetings once again to Faryal, and best wishes for the day. Enjoy this wonderful performance, by one of the originals.
