LOST AND FOUND-GEMS FROM UNRELEASED FILMS…Song No. 11
———————————————————–

it is not that Unreleased films were the speciality of the 40s or 50s. on the contrary, the percentage of such films has increased from the last few years. What I learnt from last few days, while working on this series is, that the number of incomplete or unreleased films was the maximum- to the extent of almost running over 100- during the years 70s and 80s. If you see the statistics, you will find that the number of censored films has also increased systematically from 1970 onwards. In 1990, it touched 200 films and thereafter from 2000, it has always been between 200 to 300, touching 250 in 2005.

Many stars and superstars emerged during the 70s and the 80s, like Rajesh Khanna and Amitabh Bachchan. Almost every producer and the aspirant investors naturally wanted to make films with them. Every week, 4 to 5 films used to be announced with them. Some films even started shooting, but only the experienced and the established sustained in this Rat race and the novices left the movies incomplete. The urge to earn money had become so intense that many completed and censored films got into disputes and court cases, resulting into films remaining unreleased. One can find such films’ lists on Google. Some of the films were released after a gap of 10 to 40 years, between completion/censoring and release time.

Today’s song is from one such film. It was made in 1983 with Raj Kapoor ( his last acted film), joining hands with the thespian Ashok Kumar. This film ran into disputes and was never released. The name of the film is ” CHOR MANDALI “-83. (I find that there was yet another film of the same name in 2006. But it had a different cast).

The film was from Rawal Films. Produced by C.L.Rawal, it was directed by B.L.Rawal, and the Lyrics were by G.L.Rawal. Looks like a family affair. The Music Director was the pair of Kalyanji-Anandji and the cast included Raj Kapoor, Ashok Kumar, Vinod Mehra, Asha Parekh, Rita Bhaduri, Bindu etc etc. I feel that it was way back in a 1950 film ” Bewafa” that Raj Kapoor and Ashok Kumar had acted together. Even that film had released only in 1952, two years after completion.

The plot of the film revolved around a gang of hopeful thieves who attempt a Diamond Heist and Raj and Ashok Kumar successfully foil their attempt. The film was dubbed, completed and censored in 1983, but its release was stalled due to a dispute.

This film had a song sung by Kishore Kumar, Mukesh and Dilraj Kaur. This is not a common combination. However even in ” Amar Akbar and Anthony”-77, Kishore and Mukesh had sung a song together. I first got an audio of this song and then I found an incomplete video also. Mukesh died in 76, Kishore in 87. That means this song must have been recorded either in the early 76 or before that. This indicates how much time this film has taken to go to censors in 1983. Even if this film is released now, I am sure its fate will be the same as ” Love in Bombay ” which was released after 42 years.

The Music Director pair of this film was Kalyanji-Anandji, who had their own place in the HFM. Kalyanji and Anandji were children of a businessman who migrated from Kutch to Bombay (now Mumbai) to start a grocery and provision store. The brothers began to learn music from a music teacher, who taught them in lieu of paying his bills to their father. One of their great-grandparents was a folk musician of some eminence. They spent most of their formative years in the hamlet of Girgaum (a district in Mumbai) amidst Marathi and Gujarati environs and among some eminent musical talent that resided in the vicinity.

Kalyanji started his career as a musician, with a new electronic instrument called the claviolin. which was used for the famous “Nagin Been,” used in the film Nagin (1954) which had the music of Hemant Kumar. Kalyanji then, with his brother Anandji, started an orchestral group called Kalyanji Virji and Party which organised musical shows in Mumbai and outside. This was the first attempt made for holding live musical shows in India.

Kalyanji Anandji’s arrival in the Bombay film industry as music composers was a turning point. When big music directors like S.D. Burman, Hemant Kumar, Madan Mohan, Naushad, Shankar Jaikishan and Ravi were ruling the Hindi film music world – and it was a golden period of film music – it was very tough to make a place amongst them. Still they came and won the hearts and minds of Indian people.

The Bharat Bhushan–Nirupa Roy hit Samrat Chandragupta (1959) was his first film as Kalyanji Virji Shah. Songs like “Chahe Paas Ho” (Lata–Rafi) that are remembered to this day were what made the movie a commercial success. This was followed by his composing music scores for more films like Post Box 999 before Anandji who was assisting him, joined him officially to form the Kalyanji Anandji duo in Satta Bazar and Madari (1959). Chalia (1961) was their earliest major hit. In 1965, two decisive scores, Himalay Ki God Mein and Jab Jab Phool Khile, established them as composers to reckon with.

Kalyanji-Anandji’s variety-studded music is complete with some of the topmost songs of all singers and genres. Both Kalyanji and Anandji worked as music composers for over 250 films, 17 of which were golden jubilees and 39 silver. The factor behind their success is hard work, apart from their talent. They were never self-centered or egoistic. The spiritually inclined brothers opened up a new horizon in Bollywood. They used to put society in front of them and, as a thankful gesture, organised many charitable concerts for NGOs and several charitable institutions in India and abroad with some of the biggest names in Bollywood, like Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Anil Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, Rekha and Sridevi.

They were tireless in discovering new talents and grooming them, as well. Manhar Udhas, Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, Sadhna Sargam, Sapna Mukherjee, Udit Narayan, Sunidhi Chauhan, now very popular names, were nurtured as singers and got their first breaks from Kalyanji Anandji. Fellow composers Laxmikant Pyarelal, before becoming famous, worked as music assistants to Kalyanji Anandji.

They helped introduce or gave career defining breaks to lyricists like Qamar Jalalabadi, Anand Bakshi, Gulshan Bawra, Anjaan, Verma Malik and M G Hashmat.

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, their work was introduced to a young Western audience by three albums. Bombay the Hard Way: Guns, Cars and Sitars was a mix album put together by US DJ Dan The Automator; Bollywood Funk was an Outcaste compilation album put together by Sutrasonic DJs Harv and Sunni; while The Beginners Guide To Bollywood was compiled by John Lewis from Time Out magazine. All three of these records concentrated on Kalyanji Anandji tracks from 1970s films that featured funk breakbeats, wah-wah guitars and Motown-style orchestrations. In 2005, The Black Eyed Peas’s “Don’t Phunk with My Heart” used music pieces from two of their songs: “Ae Naujawan” from the 1972 film Apradh and “Yeh Mera Dil” from the 1978 film Don, which won them a Grammy Award.

On 24 August 2000, Kalyanji breathed his last. His era with Anandji will always be remembered for their great contributions. Kalyanji’s dream for training new and young talents and promoting them is carried on today by Anandji in the name of Little Stars.

The composers composed some outstanding songs rendered by the legend Kishore Kumar such as “Jeevan se bhari teri aankhe”, “Zindagi ka safar hai ye kaisa Safar”, “Pal pal dil ke paas”, “Neele Neele Ambar Par”. Their composition called “Pal bharke liye” was used in an episode of The Simpsons. Remixed version of the song “Apni Toh Jaise Taise,” originally from the 1981 film Laawaris was used in 2010 Bollywood film housefull. The Calcutta High Court restrained producer Sajid Nadiadwala from the cinematic use of the song.(Thanks to wiki).

Let us now listen to a song from Unreleased film ” Chor Mandali”-1983,sung by Mukesh,Kishore and Dilraj Kaur…
